    Jalopy. It's weird. I fixed my car up, went for a drive, broke down by a petrol station, couldn't figure out how to buy things, eventually found my wallet, bought some parts, fixed my car, continued driving, rolled my car, now what?

    Battlefield 1. I think this is going to be a good one. It feels refreshing, something different. Gone are days of reflex sights and x40 scopes, finally rifle shots damage planes (after all they are made out of wood and fabric) and you can finally run towards people waving a machete (Actually happened to me).
    EA did a good job to me, scenery (Sinai Desert) looks excellent, textures are top notch as well as effects. You experiment in one round, clear skies, rain and a raging sand storm. All these factors affect how you have to play. When the rain or even worse, sand storm come in, planes and long distance rifles are useless, you have to find a way of advancing through enemy lines with tanks and people. When skies are clear, you better have a good eye, it's quite difficult to see enemies in the distance (Although they have kept the scope-shine-in-the-distance for sniper rifles), scopes have a basic "aiming cross". Or you can give a try and blow lalalala up from above, take a bomber and drop a couple of bombs over the town (I admit they should have a more devastating effect, like sweeping all buildings, although these do break), but you have to be careful since these are slow and lazy, and can be easily taken down by a triplane which is "much" more agile. Of course there's no RPGs or similar things, if you want to blow that tank you have to set the charge right below it, the map is full of heavy artillery like cannons, AA and such.
    Sounds are great too, and how the person moves is very well done too, like you can see NPCs shooting with only one hand on the pistol and things like that.
    Performance wise is great, I haven't seen a single FPS drop the whole hour and a half I've been playing. Rock solid on 60fps even in the worse conditions (Sand storm and big explosions). Plus, you can go to battle on a lalalalaing horse, which of course it reacts when you shoot at it!

    I really enjoyed it as well however with framescale at 100% fps drops quite a bit during storms. Hopefully it'll get optimized for the final game.

    Got a refund. If it ever gets polished up in the future I'll definitely look into it again, I really liked the concept.

    This Is The Police - a sort of police management game with a storyline. Very good, love the graphics and and sort-of comic book art style. It's dark and gritty while also being comical like a Rockstar game. It's also got a whole lot of playtime in it, I'm 14 hours in and not even halfway through. It's good bang for your buck entertainment.

    Recently tried FM6: Apex again, it's definitely running smoother and feeling better than it did at first. There's still something different in the physics, I can't quite put my finger on it, but I just think playing with a Xbone controller should feel like FM6 on your xbone... surely?

    Holy bananas batman! If you like Half Life (if ) then you'll like this. Hard to explain without giving too much away but suffice to say it's creepy, atmospheric, confusing, mysterious. It'll terrify you without relying on cheap gimmicks.

    I'm taking advantage of Rainbow six: Siege. It's fun, but I think it lacks an story mode. Jumping directly into the online action is a bit too much. I have 2 full days for testing though...

    GTA Online is great fun, it's really good for drunk gaming too lol

    My only complaint is it's so over complicated now, I know nothing about the CEO thing, or VIP... or working for people, or motorcycle clubs, or basically anything after heists. Wee bit confusing.

    Its not that bad actually, you pretty much need ceo office/motorcycle club, and then warehouse/product factories depending on what you bought in first place and youre good to go making money

    Except all that requires money (and a fair bit of it) It seems the only way to get there is through heists. I tried for ages to get through the setups but either no-one wants to be part of the setups or they end of messing up, every time. Frustrating.

    PS If anyone wants to do some heists I'm available... (PC)

    Yeah trying to do anything with random people is just a waste of time, like I said earlier you need crew/ friends.

    And actually working with other people doing CEO missions or helping in sales brings more money than heists id say.

    I've been playing the Ghost Recon Wildlands beta. The game is good, looks gorgeous and the map is really big. The story is good, finally a game goes far from middle east and takes it all the way down to South America, to some fictional places in Bolivia. As you might know your player is the leader of a elite squad, and is asked to go there to reestablish order after a DEA agent investigating a drug cartel, got killed. Because the Cartel has made business with the government they have a whole special ops team called La Unidad, these are tougher than the regular soldiers you might find. Luckily, you have the Rebels on your side, which help.
    Gameplay is good, it reminds me of Splinter Cell sometimes, mixed with some Far Cry (I guess that's thanks to the open world). You can drive anything, from dirtbikes to airplanes. You teammates are not dumb, and they know where to stand and how to shoot, they get killed from time to time, but they do their work.
    This would be great if there wouldn't be a couple of "experience killers". The game stutters quite frequently, and there are FPS drops from time to time which seem a bit random (For example, not on populated areas), I have seen some cars through the ground and then being thrown to the air... I've seen 2 of these in 2 hours. Loading times are slow, the game can't keep up with a car going at full speed on the dirt or paved roads, you can clearly see the low LOD for a while until it eventually loads. It seems that optimisation was not a strong point, I'm not able to run the game on ultra at 60fps with my current hardware, in which I can run The Division (Same GFX engine, afaik) on ultra absolutely stutter free and at 60fps. To solve this, I lowered a couple of sliders here and there and obtained a much more smooth experience, still stuttering though. I haven't tried the online too much yet. But I could see that it's pretty similar to The Division.
    All in all it's a good game, and I hope those performance issues get ironed out soon. I think, in current state, is worth to get it with a discount, after a couple of patches had rolled out.

    Played the Ghost Recon: Wildlands Open Beta as well and here is what I think about it:


    The game is a mess in my opinion. The AI of the companion squad is just stupid because they reveal my position most of the time when I'm playing stealth. The enemy bodies disappear in no time so the enemy can't detect the base being attacked. The cover system doesn't work most of the time, I don't know why they didn't use the The Division cover system?

    The mission structure is dull because most of the missions are just the basic; attack an enemy compound, convoy missions, assassination missions, ect. ect I've done these missions countless times in other games.

    Also the vehicle handeling is utter crap, the handling of the cars feel like TDU2 and the choppers are almost unplayable.

    The game's visuals are ok (at least on the PS4 Pro) but nothing that amazing like we saw at the E3 reveal. The world looks from what I've played from the beta looks a lot like Farcry 3, which isn't a bad thing because I really liked FarCry 3, but I expected a bit more to be honest.


    So after all this I don't have high hopes for this being a good game. And the fact that the Beta is released so close to launch doesn't make me think that Ubisoft will fix a lot of stuff at day one. I will wait with buying this game because they need to fix a lot of things first, and knowing Ubi that will take around 6 months or more. But luckily for me Horizon: Zero Dawn comes out next week and I'm really looking forward to that game.

    Ive been playing some older games again recently NFSU2, Saints Row 3, Saints Row 4, and just started playing NFS ProStreet.

    ProStreet feels so good playing with decent FPS for once, tho the rubberbanding is extreme, I got beaten by Golf V while driving Veyron on speed event lol

    Still pretty much exclusively playing World of Tanks here. Finally made it to my first Tier 10 tank a month or so ago, the Centurion Action X. Also not far off getting the FV215b and IS-7 with the E100 trailing a bit. Keep telling myself I'll quit the game soon because the community is more toxic than CS:GO ever was and the devs keep doing stupid things, but I've put too much time in to it now to quit with just one Tier 10 tank.

    Had thoughts about re-installing TDU1 and streaming it on Twitch this week for a laugh. I loved that game and I still wish someone would release something very similar to it again, The Crew and TDU2 just didn't give me the same vibes. I don't normally compliment myself, but I was a pretty good driver on TDU1 (actually did better in Hardcore mode) and think if I could draw a small crowd on Twitch it'd be quite fun.
