Loaded up Fallout 4 since I never played the DLC. Didn't realize it had been 2.5 years since I played. I'm very jumpy and completely lost... so I'm just going to remodel my bases and then move on.

FYI - Destiny 2 is free right now for PSN Plus members. Campaign was fun. You should give it a try.

Slick shoes?! Are you crazy?!

I forgot to mention, my mission that was bugged in Fallout 4 was still bugged 2.5 years later. That killed half my interest from the get go.

I really had no interest, but I can download it just for you, my ravenous muffin.

Also, why the hell is it free? It tanking that bad? Huge catch?

I didn't know if they adjust teams or games to put similarly skilled players together.
Missed this at the time.

From what others say, non-ranked matchmaking is still broken. I've only played ranked doubles for about a year, and it seems like I've got a teammate with a horrible connection every other match.

The playerbase was dwindling pretty bad, and Forsaken was coming out. Offer the core for free and sell expansions.
I like my water with hops, malt, hops, yeast, and hops.

I do have to say, it's a shame that they took actions to appease complaints and it's killed their playerbases' longevity. Though the reality might be the entire concept is going to have downsides one way or the other.

I imagine the head honchos at Activision are not happy with Bungie. (They're in for two more Destinies, right?)

I've been playing with my 5 year old and casual actually managed to do a decent job of pairing us up fairly. In a typical game, he'll end up with ~100 points at the end of the game, I'll have 500-600, and both of the opponents will have ~300. Occasionally we'll get crushed, and on a few occasions he's broken 300 points and gotten MVP. He's very proud of those games. But for such a mismatched team, the games seem to end up pretty fair skill-wise.

On my own, I'm stuck in silver in doubles and gold in standard.

I’ve spent over 10 hours on playing poker and fishing alone this week.

Oh and hey, what’s up everyone. Long time no see. Hope all is well and happy turkey day!

For no particular reason I borrowed a friend's copy of Call of Duty WW2 and have been playing online recently.

You may be surprised to learn that most of the maps are complete cluster****s, including one (Shipment 1944) which is absolutely tiny and features some pretty great spawning scenarios.

Really haven't had the time to tuck back into RDR2, and now Metro Exodus is out...RIP FattyMcBlobicus

Dropping by to say hi

In a fit of nostalgia last night a friend was replaying our H3 shenagians and rocket race maps and I couldn’t help but think I should stop by the old forum. I’ve been absent and wanted to check in on the old crew . Hope you’re all doing well.

I’ve moved over mostly to PS4 under PSN: Kevin Bogues but still on Xbox : Bogues

Dakar, Sek, Crosbie bros thanks for making a night drinking about gaming

I ran across this today, and thought you folks might like it. A browser-based 3D model viewer that lets you explore reverse-engineered video game maps. Warning: The site requires both a browser and OS that speaks WebGL-2.
When I want your opinion,-
I'll read it in your entrails

Bogues you beautiful bastard, good to hear from you!

Recently I was checking out my Flickr account and came across my Halo 3 album, man what a ton of good memories from that game. Probably, when all is said and done, that will be my most fond memory of online gaming ever. Next to the first Minecraft servers.

I'm going to add you on PS4 ASAP.

Crackdown 3? Anthem?

Really bummed that Crackdown 3 is a straight up remake of 1, but 2 was soooo bad, so it’s sort of a wash.

I signed up for XBox Game Pass and have been plundering on Sea of Thieves.

Any of you guys on Apex? It's the first battle royale game that I actually like.

I think I revisited the NN Grand Prix thread once for the pics and recaps of all the Rocket Races.

I though FC5 was...fine. It looked pretty in 4K and ran well, but the story was moronic. I got kidnapped how many times?

There was some lovely insane things you could do. Had to shoot down three helicopters - used the flight suit to chase them down, switch to the parachute, use the heat-seeking missiles to blow them up.
The new Mac Pro has up to 30 MB of cache inside the processor itself. That's more than the HD in my first Mac. Somehow I'm still running out of space.

Before I bought it I saw a lot of people complaining about how character development and storyline sucked vs. FC3.

I didn't really care - it felt like the gameplay of 3 but with more cars, better combat, and cooler weapons.

Crosbie, where you at? Dakar and I are all over the Pre Sequel at the moment, you should join in. Of course me being a lame old dad and you being on the west coast might provide some problems...
