Random, but I have been replaying Fallout 4 the last few weeks. I've been enjoying it a lot more than the last time I played it, I think enough time has passed where the disappointment over what it's not has subsided and I can enjoy it for what it is (that being said, I always liked the game). It still leaves me with a desire to just boot up New Vegas, though.

 

All this just has me really hoping The Outer Worlds is awesome.

I've found with doing the XB for PC GamePass, I really want to finish stuff up that I start that is in the Pass.

 

Especially important stuff like Gears 5, Metro: Exodus, Wolf II: TNC, etc. Especially since it feels like a limited time rental, until you stop subscribing.

 

It's like: "I have to run through this before the month ends!"

The secret is to pre-purchase through 2021 so you still don't feel any pressure to play anything.

PC gaming picked up so much since BL2 came out. BL3 being bigger on PC is obvious.

The question is, would it have been bigger on Steam?

the answer is yes, by a lot. my source is me, i'm awesome

Yeah, I always liked Fallout 4 - but FO4 ain't as great as FO3 in the choices department; and especially NV in the character, story, narrative, writing, dialogue, and/or voice-acting. Seriously, Obsidian is just flat-out better at that stuff; no comparison.

 

But, yes - FO4 really improved the ARPG elements and gun-play. I also enjoyed the open-world of Boston, too.

 

Special mention for FO4: Far Harbor DLC, as I thought that was more of what I was looking for FO4....w/ choices/decision-making, story, characters, and personality.

 

It's almost as if FO4 base-game got the foundations down of majorly improved gunplay, gameplay, and ARPG-upgrading equipment...whereas Far Harbor DLC was what we all really wanted out of FO4 content.

 

EDIT:

Oh, yeah; definitely looking forward to The Outer Worlds. Sounds and feels like to me a spiritual successor to FO: NV with a similar type of sci-fi Borderlands-like future/universe (where mega-corporations rule).

last year i made the mistake of replaying fo3 immediately after nv, the dialogue in three is kinda tough to get through after playing nv

Fallout 4 is fun in the same way Skyrim is fun.  The writing and quests are terrible but you just treat it like the shallow dungeon/world crawler it is and have fun.

Not sure why they would do it when they have a PTS for major changes going on but... Well, it is Massive/Ubisoft and they constantly step on their own game's toes by scheduled multiple events/betas at the same time.

 

Anyhow, a new Apparel Event started in the Division 2 today...  (I guess I'll be playing the Division for the next couple of weeks.)

The prematurely Tweeted announcement from Europe/Asia showed four costumes.  Could be more, but four would match the first Event (the enemy factions one); the others were more like 5-6 outfits.

Three costumes sets, 30 keys total needed (which is what I think the last one ended up being), and one costume for getting it all.

So even smaller than the first event!  I could have this knocked out by Thursday (unless they screwed with the key drop rates)

I think if we had less grammar nazis the internet would have fewer annoyance.

If we had fewer people in general this would also be true.  This is why I do not understand why more people are not cheering on the many wonderful, beautiful asteroids floating around out there.  I mean without asteroids there might be a bunch of dinosaurs eating us right now so another big impact can only be a good thing!

 

I'd say something about a video game or a sale but the sales all suck and I have not had time to play anything in weeks, so...

Someone on Reddit has it done already (without buying keys) while others have leveled up 8 times without getting a key.  It seems very much the normal RNG.

The secret is to pre-purchase through 2021 so you still don't feel any pressure to play anything.

There is still a little pressure to play stuff since you never know if something will be taken off the service. I imagine the first party stuff will be there indefinitely, but for everything else, I have no idea how often they'll remove games and with how much notice.

Basically. That and place in a virtual build show. Either you're grinding for cosmetics or trying to complete a build. I've been running with a shotgun/sniper build for a few months but I think I'll change it up soon. Probably do something stupid like Tommy gun as my main.

As a public service announcement, the Solasta Kickstarter I alluded to a few weeks ago made 100% last night, so if anyone's interested in fakeybro'ing a tactical RPG, you may want to check it out.

Pretty sad they have to address Epic Game store exclusivity in their FAQ... They say they won't do it.

Anyhow, I'm glad they made it... but my days of Kickstarting are pretty much over. It would have to be perfectly in my wheelhouse for me to consider otherwise.

I could never get it to run, but this was pre-Xbox App so maybe they fixed it.  I know I couldn't get Metro Exodus to run without crashing every few minutes for a few weeks until they updated it and the app.
