Schattenlouf!



I replay this a lot. The matrix was a game unto itself. Try it with the Troll or Elf mods.

About 100 hours in on cyberpunk. Kinda addicted to it. Already finished the main story once. The side quests do matter if you want options at the end. Spend time doing quest chains and you'll probably love this. Railroad the main story and you might toss your controller at the screen. How you play games kinda matters here with how the story goes. At least that's there. Loving the sound track too when I can give it a chance. Ponpon shit!

There are a lot of frustrating bugs the deeper you go but the fun factor is high. If you're a power gamer maybe put it on hard or expert to start. My only problem with the game is how easy it is... you can max your main stat by level 15 and be Godlike once you have the options figured out.

Skyrim all over again and I'm kinda loving it. But I love character building (why I still play uo here and there) and this game doesn't disappoint in that department.

sounds alright tbh, problem i always had with the bethesda games was i would wander off the main quest line, and just lose the plot. so i can kinda dig that they've done more side quests than main

thought i'd give this a try



it's basically a cross of mount and blade and dynasty warriors, with a bit of moba style added.. so like it's 15 heroes vs 15 heroes, mount and blade style siege battles and character/warband development, each hero commands a unit of soldiers from their warband. combat's like dynasty warriors. it's pretty good actually, tho the open world part and all the extra stuff is confusing and un-necessary.. i'll probably never learn it cos im just playing the mutiplayer matches.

it's f2p on steam tho. bit laggy/not very well optimized cos it's more a spiritual successor than an itteration. but the mechanics are all pretty on point.
(it's to mount and blade, what leagues is to dota2)

i had a pure lolz one last night, set my unit guarding a gate and went outside to duel this hero that was running about, but while dueling we ended up swapping sides, so his back was to the gate; ordered my unit to advance. funny as fk watching him get swallowed up by a gank squad creeping up from behind :P

just spent all my shit on a squad of frikkin riflemen.
we likes to park them around a corner and get people to chase me lol

starting to look pretty badass too

it will get repetitive tbh, but for now it's fun.

From time to time can play a bit of Destiny 2. A good shooter. If you have never played it I guess you won't regret if you give it a go ;) Unlike all other shooters Destiny 2 can boast to have pretty affordable items and raids on external marketplaces. Say, here https://skycoach.gg/destiny-boost/pve/raid you can get a Deep Stone Crypt Raid for some $20. That is a bargain, my opinion :D

honestly these 2 maps are amazing. so well made.

completed all the original maps on hardest mode over the last week or so, been doing like 1 map a night. but these 2 custom maps.. they properly take like 30-40 hours to complete a game, and it's all purely done with the map design, choke points, areas of trees and rocks you have to clear to slow you down, drip feed of resources so you can lose and refill troops, enemies scaled to when you meet them. really, really excellent to make this without scripting it all.

like there is a point on the first map, where you make massive production in by your main base, then you kill an enemy to the right, and where his main HQ is, is a harbour spot, then you take the harbour slot and send a boat all the way around the back channels of the map, build another harbour, and it lets you place a military building, that connects the area right by your main base, to a south area, then you can move south to the next enemy - and it's coming straight off your main base. it's so well done.

second map, i've met the first three enemies on multiple fronts, managed to push them back and secure a nice choke point to reinforce against the next enemy - so then had time and opportunity to go back and fill in the land i've just taken. next enemies much stronger than the last. that's so rare in this game, cos usually once you've killed one enemy, the others have all wasted a lot of their troops on eachother and you can steamroll the entire rest of the map. but this, this is awesome.

tho i have about 700 gold knights now.. so the ending may be close ;P

it's pretty awesome actually.. made a ring of about 10 castles as training castles, then basically told all my storehouses to kick out the noob soldiers so they all pool in the one by the training ring. you get a bit more upgrades for your gold coins if you upgrade them in castles ;)
but then i have everywhere refusing coins except these castles, and only the storehouses on the front line accepting generals: so when i empty them, all the generals split off and take a different path to the front line. then i just turn troops back on and train up another 90 :P

new batch of trainees on their way :P

reminds me of cannon fodder lol



the trick to settlers is to clear the land before you build on it, then build in like nodes, not just what-ever, where-ever.
like this is a wood node:
Image

gotta use the store houses properly to take in the overflow as well, otherwise it'll clog up your roads, but gotta set them to the right goods types, etc. also paying attention to your tools so you know how many of what you can make without running out of workers. i just love that the priority settings work so well, you can literally see the change in the small scale of what the guys pick up/make, and in the large scale with the graphs.

it's just nice to have some maps that are big enough for it to pay off.

it's such a shame they messed Settlers up in later versions :/

Ok

This is the last letter I received from you
Shall we recap?

I am using the O’s you are using the X’s
I went 1st
I placed my O top left
Many weeks later you replied with an X top right
I then placed my O bottom right

After 2 months you sent me a letter without a move by you but a question instead.
You asked “ can I buy a vowel because you are using vowels?

I explained to you for the 2nd time how this game is played
I am using O’s and you have to use X’s nothing else

When we look at the last letter you sent in JUNE OF 2015 it seems like you think that by X I meant the name of a former girlfriend.

Again I explained how the game is played. I removed the name Cathy and told you to replay your move.

It’s been almost 6 years and it’s STILL YOUR MOVE GO!!!

I feel like this game is going to end like our scrabble game where you went first and placed the word JENZERO claiming all sorts of points and telling me that JENZERO is an old word used in NZ which means all the sheep are back and accounted for.
You even put it in a sentence.

Honey I’m home and the sheep are JENZERO!

I mean WTF
