    I bet going from ME:A to Witcher 3 is like going from night to day.
    Yeah, the game is something is special alright.
    After seeing what CDProjekt did in Witcher 3, it has me excited for what they will do with Cyberpunk 2077 :D

    It is, unfortunately. It starts with the vastly superior UI. Granted, it took them a while to
    completely overhaul the UI and make things easier to find, easier to read - so-called quality
    of life improvements, but at least they listened and replaced what was flawed with something
    great.

    And it ends at the camera angles during conversations. While in ME, you usually stand facing
    each other, in The Witcher the times and places of conversations are so varied that, during
    those conversations, the participants do all kinds of things - sit in a chair, drink, ... they move,
    they're alive.

    They got some of the most basic RPG elements wrong, but hopefully some of it can be fixed.

    Best game this decade. :D


    Nvidia Ansel works quite well in this game. I grabbed this super resolution screenshot at the start of the party.

    I may be bias, but I think Witcher 3 is the best game ever made so far.
    Is like two games in one with its main story and the monster contracts.

    Are you replaying the game? It kind of looks that way.

    Yes, I am replaying it. While the end of the final DLC made me feel better about my main story
    ending, I still want to change 2 things about the ending, so I'm replaying the main story.

    You seem to be going at fast pace, I think those scenes are half way through the main story.

    I'm going at about the same pace as last time, but this time I'm doing all the Gwent stuff.
    I started the second playthrough about a month ago.

    And my reply is...

    [​IMG]


    I spent many hours of my childhood playing 3D platformers with my little sister. With Yooka-Laylee being terrible,
    I had to buy this one directly off Steam and support the devs. Once in a while, I have to switch it up a bit and get
    away from all the cars and guns. The trick to this game is that going straight is slow, but slithering left and right
    like a snake is quick. Same logic applies to climbing etc. Comes with Nvidia Ansel support right out the gate, too!

    Is this game, Prey, good?
    No press reviews out there..
    I still feel that this game shouldn't have been called Prey

    It plays like BioShock in space with a flair of Dishonored. I don't even know what's going on yet,
    but I'm enjoying it. It looks great you've got plenty of options to adjust the level-up system to how
    you play.

    It's getting pretty good reviews: Your Source for the Critical Reception of Video Games. .

    That's the problem, they decided to called it Prey when a lot of people, including myself, have been looking forward to a reboot or a sequel of the original 2006 game.
    The game will surely suffer negative reviews and low sales because is not really Prey
    I have liked Bethesda ever since they have brought old school games back to life, but they screwed up this one; things would have been different if the name was something else.

    I will wait until the Xmas Steam sale

    Luckily, it doesn't matter. The game is fantastic and I enjoy reading scientific logs about the aliens and why prey is still a
    term that makes sense in this universe. I'm going to update my description of the game though. It's alien Dishonored in
    space with psychological horror elements and a big emphasis on science and multiple ways of playing through the game
    (story-wise, not just stealth/action). Hunting down some leads on how everything happened, I said WTF?! out loud a few
    times this afternoon.

    The game is too good to pass it up because of a misconception about the title.

    Anyway. Between trips to Talos I, I went on a few sightseeing tours!

    [​IMG]

    With a bit more graphics power under the hood, I went back to Watch Dogs 2 to finish the second half of the story, and I'm having
    a great time hacking into the FBI, Google, SpaceX, and so on. This game oozes diversity when it comes to modern games. So here
    are a few pictures I took. Most of them are pictures taken with the ingame camera phone, visiting famous sights, curiosities and
    random stuff in no particular order.

    Here's one such data center and I'm just having a look around. So much data.

    Of course I also hacked into the local Scientology temple and took a pic after the deed was done.
