Playing The Division 2. Taking my time and playing by myself. I figure after I experienced the story/setting once, I'll make a new toon and start again but with people.

for some reason, they changed sniper rifles such that it always goes into max zoom if you are using a #x scope instead of like how in Division 1 where you had more control. Thing is though, you don't really need a scope for most of the sniper rifles since iron sights is far superior. The only time I found a scope useful is for those sniper rifles that act more like an assault rifle. Then again those snipe rifles tend to put out far less damage per shot since their RPM is so high.

I also like that you aren't forced to stay with a team in this game. If player decides they want to partner up with people and do their own thing seperate from the group, the game doesn't forces you to stay with the group.

The story is just as interesting as the last one, though they have expanded it better than the first 1.

Until we Get the Playable Mockup I am playing my standby games... Mostly old NES/SNES titles and sometimes an old PC game or browser game i.e. Limbo.. Pretty unimpressive stuff because I am partially boycotting AAA games. Absolutely disgusted with their greedy practices.

for me it depends on the company. Some companies for certain titles are done well. Where game content isn't limited to how much $$ you are willing to put down.

Like I'm playing division 2 now. And sure they do got some content locked down but it's ain't stuff that everyone will want. Like clothes and other fashion stuff which can be unlocked in the game. Though, they do got plans for weapons and game content that will be paid extra for... but only the most addicted long term players will probably buy that stuff since the game got a ton of content pre-endgame and post-endgame as is.

but yeah I see your point since there is a lot of companies that doing what they can to screw over the customer. At this point it seems like Steam is going to be one of the very few platforms that allows 3rd party sellers for products because everyone else is way too greedy to allow others in.

It's pretty frustrating to see other companies adopting the predatory practices of the mobile game market.

Playing Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint.

The game feels like Farcry and The Division had a baby.

I guess the addition of the patrols on the roads and the manned checkpoints is to encourage players to actually use the open world as is. Especially since I have been able to use a variety of vehicles to drive up really steep walls/mountains. It feels like the devs tried hard to not constrain the player too much.

I turned off guided exploration as soon as I found the main camp cause seeing a constant waypoint reminded me of tunnels. Guided is on as default and that means you go where they tell you to go whereas the exploration mode just gives you hints where you are supposed to go, so it seems more engaging to me. I figure the Devs probably had guided on as default because it would be very difficult to come across the main camp that pretty much unlocks the rest of the game on exploration mode. That place is in the middle of nowhere, in the mountains and very far from where you start of.

I feel like exploration is more enjoyable than guided because the devs didn't make level 1 zone, level 2 zone, etc. Instead they put everything in the same place. And actually having to search for where my mission starts and all the other weird side quest missions they jammed into this game is pretty cool.

Levels don't matter as long you point your gun at weakpoints for humans. For machines on the other hand, you going to need to cheap them out to take them out when they are sitting at 40+ levels above you. The same goes for humans if you are targeting anything other than their heads. Which means I just dismantled every weapon I got as loot.

All flying vehicles can be taken down with a few shots at the rotors, the tail or one shot at the pilot or one missle. Which means they aren't good to use against the drone tanks who got miniguns/motars/missles/etc. But are fine against the drone tanks that only got one weapon.

You can play this game solo until you get to the end and want to play a raid.

Food items are pointless if you are pointing your weapons at heads because then everything dies in one or two shots regardless of the weapon. But if you are more of the spray & pray type, then they can be useful for their short term effects.

Warframe,
i used to not like it.

It's also a pretty complicated game for a new player to get into. But now after a while and getting better at the movement meta you begin to notice the skill ceiling in it and i'm kinda a sucker for those types of mechanics. Once get the hang of the movement you can really achieve "flow" states and that's ussually what i miss in MMOs.

i have to admit it's starting to scratch those Firefall iches.

Its a fun game but the grinding is very much at times & some parts are annoying to get especially with mining for specific resources because the drop rate of a specific resource your after doesn't always happen since it is random i think.

Currently there is a dry dock to build which is a big spaceship takes alot of resources and credits but cannot fly it until the next update.

I just like playing as ivara frame & looking forward to the prime version of ivara even if she is a jelly fish frame. Much prefer the tree frog look at least we are able to use tennogen skins.

Yeah, i haven't gottan that far in it yet, it's clearly grindy but like i concider myself more a casual nowadays so i don't care that much. I am happy with my exalibur, skana and bow, archwing en skateboardthing and for now that's all i need to have fun it it. It's just a quick session of hop in, kill some baddies, do some cool ninja moves and after 1 hour orso i'm bored of it and i'll play again next week or something.

I understand that the grind at end game is a bitch but for a casual, it's still a very fun game.

Firefall was a grind and complicated mess too at endgame imo XD


edit: oh yeah now that i think about it, does most if not all of the powerfcure in WF come from mods? The powercurve seems very low to me, or is there something i'm missing? (Main character is maxxed-ish, so that can't be it)

I like my excal too but then all the chopping so took a break, now go my pace and some get angry and leave but since i am invisible snail its ok....unless there is a timer then i must do more ninja rolls.

Those primed mods and dual stats are nice they made my baza gun more better it was a pea shooter and after some mods and time to max the mods now its an upgraded beans shooter :D

Not sure on all that power curves but i guess in time with all the right mods, and things it happens. if i can make damage and stay invisible i am happy saves me alot when i am typing too or eating!
