  1. I picked this up for $3 and have just unlocked World Levels - is it just me or are there only 2 skills in the entire game worth using as a solo player? The drone which flies about shooting enemies and distracting them from immediately rushing/flanking you and the hive one which automatically revives you when you get put down. Everything else is "yeah, that's pretty cool but compared to these two..." Ubisofty Shooty Openish World Map games are the only ones which give me ludonarrative dissonance. The story is played so straight and serious and everyone treats my agent like he's the Goodest Ever Guy, but he's just casually and single-handedly gunned down a genocidal number of human beings!
  2. I can't stop watching Limmy performing full patter-ectomies on episodes of 3-2-1 for 3 hours at a time.
  3. Apropos of the topic, will The Master Chief Collection version of Halo CE have an option to emulate the slower, weightier-feeling PAL 50 version? That's the Real Halo for me.
  4. I took a few weeks off to play Iceborne now I can't be bothered to go back and finish off the "Savior" ('merica!) title, halp!
  5. *sigh* I guess I'll start grinding out the glory for the Komodo now we're into February. 5 minutes of freelance comp matchmaking later, me with 0 glory vs. Unbrokens with The Last Word/Revoker etc. who are all at near-1000 light.
  6. I once again forgot that having fun watching someone who's really good at a game having fun playing it doesn't mean you'll have fun playing it yourself, so I shouldn't have bought Escape From Tarkov, which is an absolutely miserable experience as a new player when it turns out you're terrible at milsim shooters. It also locks you out of playing as the no-risk-but-no-character-progress Scav character for 20 minutes at a time, and your main lose-everything-when-you-die character doesn't automatically heal up between runs so the only option to keep playing to practise ends up being offline, which is a complete waste of time in terms of being able to recover from all your losses.
  7. I gave up on the idea of having a backlog of games I'm somehow obligated to play, instead. I can count the number of games I finished last year on one hand, as I'm happy to stop playing if I realise I've had all the fun I'm going to have, or if I don't feel like going back after an initial big play session. There are also 2 or 3 games I play semi-regularly which can never really be "finished", which renders the whole thing meaningless anyway.
  8. Loved the one of the hip-hop car review guy getting blown away by Rage Against The Machine
  9. PC mods are back for Iceborne, pard! Here are some of the most useful ones if you don't want to have to dig through all the *ahem*visual aids for one-handed players on Nexus Mods. Visual mods These can be dropped into a nativePC folder in the Monster Hunter: World game directory just like the olden days. Monster 3 Star Weakness Icon Indicator - displays a monster's 3-star weakness element(s) in its icon Souvenir's Light Pillar - makes all monster drops emit a big pillar of light (the thin version is better) Easier to spot Guiding Lands gathering points - turns bone piles and mining spots in the Guiding lands white so they don't blend into the background (bone piles are particularly tricky to spot until you know where to look) Guiding Lands Gathering Indicator - adds icons to the Guiding Lands mini map showing where bone piles, mining spots and signs of turf wars can spawn (now-)Naughty mods Use at your own peril! Or only use offline if you're wary. Iceborne's new anti-cheat stuff prevents you from changing the game in certain ways using the nativePC folder, such as editing shop inventory, replacing audio assets and, well... flat out cheats. In order to restore that functionality, you need to use the Stracker's Loader mod, which kills the anti-cheat threads. I've seen reports of this incidentally fixing high CPU usage for some people. If you expand the Requirements section for this mod on its Nexus Mods page, you can see all the naughty mods which require it. (Required) Stracker's Loader - kills anti-cheat threads, allowing mods to make full use of the nativePC folder Large Shop Assortment for Consumables and Combo Mats - adds a larger selection of consumables and combo mats to the shop inventory, so you don't have to farm and combine all the essentials you need on a hunt
  10. Yian Garuga's bouncy wings can also do one; I'll not be fighting that again. *looks at its leg armour with Critical Eye 2 and 3 slots, and its Light Bow Gun with rapid fire Pierce 2 AND Sticky 2, and 20% affinity* I'll be fighting that again.
  11. I think there's only one bit where you have to open your wings to make progress, yet the triumphant wing-spin was easily my most used move in the whole game.
  12. The look on streamers' faces as they pick up the exotic which was on the season roadmap for the 28th a week early, after pulling day-plus-long shifts taking screenshots and entering stuff into spreadsheets for an entire week (Apart from the few who made baaaank on subscriptions and donations).
  13. Fuck. Tigrex. I shouldn't have opened my first fight with him up to randoms, as all three of them carted in a couple of hits.
  14. Dawning double XP bounties bounties, the extra weeklies from the obelisks and dailies from Saint 14 have made it stupidly easy to level up this season - I'm 240 on the season pass and done with everything bar glory for the Komodo and a million points for the strike emblem and shader, with maxed out obelisks and 10,000 fractaline in the bank for when the Empyrean Foundation rolls around, whatever that will be. I can't be bothered with Sundial when it's easy to bang out a few Timelost weapon frames while doing your other bounties, so I'm just going to wait for the final boss to roll around and do LFG once for that and the Legend triumph for the title; fuck all the un-fun modifiers on that and Destiny's continued lack of in-game LFG (and loadout management - I just run one "good enough" build all season because it's a hassle to manually switch gear and particular mods over when moving between different activities which could benefit from a more specific build).
  15. 917 Attack and True Razor Sharp (Nargacuga set bonus), which seems to proc all the time. The gear gets good quickly in Iceborne.
  16. You can change it so you have to click on the stick to use the selected item, it feels a bit weird at first but also makes it much better for combining multiple things on the fly as you can Click Like Fuck™ to craft a whole stack of lifepowder, flash bombs, ammo etc. at once.
  17. Irmagird, it's so good. When I remember to use them, the new long sword moves are disgusting for combos and the new clutch claw stuff is... clutch. The new Iai Slash can be chained onto everything and landing it starts your spirit gauge automatically charging up, while being able to shoot your clutch claw ammo into a monster's face in the middle of a spirit slash combo is ridiculous. I had the classic using every single healing item experience with my first Barioth, but I was getting more comfortable with the new stuff by the time I fought Nargacuga and wrecked him. Thank fook for layered armour, as I'm running a constantly-evolving hodgepodge of whatever I can craft for better defense from the last monster I hunted. I've already spied a longsword which seems rather good for how easy it is to craft this early in the game (and it's raw damage so it's effectively an early game Divine Slasher), so Kulu-Ya-Ku is going to get some the next time I log on.
  18. It's fine. It's a mechanic in a Nintendo game, so the game's been designed with it in mind rather than feeling like an arbitrary decision which has just been chucked in the mix (there's even a rewarding mechanic for getting rid of your weakened weapons). The game's constantly throwing new equivalent-or-stronger weapons at you and you end up with more good weapons than you can throw your starting stick at. Given the sheer amount of gear you pick up the biggest ballache is the lack of a swap option when you try to pick something up but the inventory space for that category is full.
  19. It's about usual for entering a new rank - Master Rank monsters will wreck you in your High Rank armour but even the easiest to craft Master Rank armour has way better defense and the new Defender weapon tree is easy to craft with existing materials for a damage boost with tons of sharpness.
  20. My cat keeps Witcher-bombing the new cutscenes
