Its a pretty fun game with a good team and someone skilled playing as the Predator. Alot of tense moments running around completing objectives against NPCs while the Predator stalks you.



Ah has this improved at all with patching now?

Also is it the case that everyone is still playing as Dutch, which was the case when that DLC came out?

Looking for something to play as a 4-player asymmetric as an alternative to Dead by Daylight and have this on the shortlist at the moment.


Not sure about any issues with patching, tbh. I thought it just came out according to Steams release date.

It runs pretty well on my system, and my partner in crime hasn’t had any issues either.

There are a few Dutchs still running around, but it never felt excessive. Had a 1987 and a 2025 Dutch in the same map once.


Ah that's good. I know when it first came out it was all over the place, constantly dropping people out of games and some quite bad in-game bugs (mobs just blinking into existence in front of you and things like that).

Surprised how it fell under the radar. Firestorm over Kronus and Ultimate Apocalypse got aome reasonable traction from DoW fans, but this one seems to have Lictored it’s way over.

I remember needing to install a good few number of different mods to get Ultimate Apocalypse working. Does the Unification mod come under one package?

I beat it and still love the game, I ended with it just under 7500 war assets and got the synthesis ending where everyone got along.
But Mass effect was always about the characters, which means in honestly, The Citadel DLC is a great end to the game, a chance to reconnect with these characters for one last time, do some stupid gak with them and party.
Y'know, its weird sometimes to get so attached to chracters in games, at some points, they even feel real.

Been powering through God of War (the PS4 one) with my wife and I am loving it so far. I also messed around a little bit with Star Wars Squadrons. It's fun, but something about the throttling for speed is really hard for me to get used to. I will probably power through the small story mode and maybe play a game of two of multiplayer then put it back on the shelf.

Uh, sorry I have taken so long to reply. It's mostly on its own, but they had to separate it into two separate downloads as the mod site wouldn't allow one file over 9 gigabytes. The only other mods besides the mod manager is the Tyranid mod which is linked on the page.

I completed the latest DLC for Wasteland 3 "Battle for Steeltown".

Was fun, but also frustrating, gameplay-wise. Was a great story with alot of tough decisions to be made, but I think I made out alright, making the most benevolent decisions(or at least I thought so). I won't know until I hunt down the last of the Patriarch's children and also deal with him how I see fit. Still not sure what side I'm going to take at the end.

Just completed Lego Harry Potter 5-7 to fully complete both games from the Xbox One double pack, so full 2000 Achievement points.

Also playing a bit of Hearthstone, my daily foray in Fortnite Save the World to keep Venture mode ticking along. A bit of Sims 4 and Doom 64.

Oh and I played a wonderful Adventure, puzzle game called 'Call of the Sea' which I'd have never brought but thanks to Game Pass didn't need to. I really enjoyed it mind, need to go back and grab a final few achievements but very impressed with the story telling, would be interesting in see what else the studio comes out with.

This was one of my favourite games from last year. You can definitely tell the game was a labour of love for the developers because there are just so many little neat touches. It plays beautifully too.

I'm probably on about 40-50 playthroughs now and still don't think I have seen a repeated line of text from a character, which is pretty remarkable..

Executing Exarch




Started a new game of Hearts of Iron 4. Was playing as Manchukuo, and wanted to get the Dragon Swallowed the Sun achievement (Manchukuo annexes Japan while not in a faction). Set myself up on the "break free of Japan" path, and watched while the German military overthrew Hitler on the other side of the world. Put my attention back to East Asia, and jumped through the necessary hoops. Now all I needed to do was build up my troop strength, and then trigger the "declare independence from Japan" event.

And then Japan and Communist China went to war. On the surface, this wasn't anything to pay attention to because the two countries didn't have access to each other. But then Mao joined the Comintern, which meant that the Soviets were getting involved.

/sigh

I initially ignored the calls to arms. But I knew that wasn't really an option, since both Nationalist China (which promptly joined in) and Communist China have claims on Manchukuo, and the moment Japan was beaten, the Comintern was going to invade me. And then Italy joined the East-Asian Co-Prosperity Sphere (seriously!), and dragged me into a war in southern and Western Europe. That was fine... except that the British joined as well, and just invaded the Japanese Home Islands.

It's now 1940, the war in Asia is going reasonably well except that the Japanese Home Islands are getting rolled up, and pretty much the only pieceful places in Eurasia right now are Germany, and Poland.

Oh, well.
