Oh, it's a good one. It starts very slowly, but it picks up.

Okay, I know R&C loves their innuendo titles, but that really can't be a rea- Guy whispers in my ear Oh, errors have been made.

The Division 2

 

Just crafted my first unique weapon. Most powerful marksman rifle in the game. Is nice. 2-hit kills on named bosses, 1-hit kills on everything else.

Day of Defeat: Source

 

Although it's pretty small, there's still a community to this game. I have to say I'm not a fan that the servers that are populated tend to have the "Medic" command and one I joined recently let you pick your weapons upon spawn. I was trying to slam some MG nests with the bazooka but accidentally pressed a different weapon and I just couldn't figure out how to get back to using the bazooka.

 

Aside from stuff like that, DoD:S is pretty fun. There's some jank to it - especially aiming down sights with the M1 Garand/whatever the German rifle is and going prone feels really clunky. I think the thing that annoys me the most about it from an actual regular gameplay perspective is it's like Counter-Strike in that you have to aim in a way that you let the recoil/weapon spread do everything for you, so you basically aim at someone's feet to hit them in the chest/head. Now that's a bit of an exaggeration but I definitely find aiming below/off to the side is a great way to actually hit people instead of aiming directly at them with any of the automatic weapons which are the ones I use the most.

 

According to my friend, the balance wasn't changed all too much. He played the game for a while and he said Valve left the game with great balance. That's something I can't quite say for a game like Team Fortress 2, sadly.

I'm playing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and I must say it really has my glued to the monitor for much longer that I planned. I don't remember when was the last time this happened, but there's always "one more thing" I want to do before turning it of and before I know it it's been 2 hours.

Risk of Rain 2

 

Nothing but love for this game so far. Absolutely does the name proud. Despite moving from 2d to 3d it still holds everything that made the first one so good.

Minecraft with the PTGI (raytracing) shaders... On an entirely AMD system...

 

Quite good for visuals, and the first few hours were without anything noticeably wrong, partly because I was really tired. After a little extra time I figured out the lanterns do not raytrace if they are attached to iron bars, and bonfires cause the blocks on which they reside to become the light emitters as well. (basically the same problem for all light sources) Also, it doesn't reflect the sun/moon for me for some reason.

 

Overall, highly recommended to wait for a release version, then everyone with at least an RX 580 should use this pretty exclusively.

WoW classic.

Burnout is starting to hit me extremely hard, honestly.

Looks like the "lantern on an iron bar" issue is known, and relates to having to code for each block individually. Works just fine on fences though.

Jay literally rage quit and my friend is considering stopping already.

Sea of Thieves

 

Last night highlighted why I don't trust other crews in Sea's, because no one should ever trust us. We set up so many ambushes and tricked so many people and we had the time of our lives. A lot of them involved explosive powder kegs and a particular chest that's immensely valuable and marks it's location on the global map at all times. Or sometimes just guns and a friendly face.

It's online only. The draw to it has always been teaming up to share the profits or attacking them to take it all for yourself. it's a pretty big world map with only I think 5-6 ships active on it at one time so it's not BUSTLING but you are very likely to encounter players on long voyages.

 

My style for avoiding pvp on the rare occasion I sail alone is to never make it look like I'm heading to an outpost when other ships are on the horizon. If you can see them, they can see you, and heading to an outpost makes people think you've got something to cash in, this can lead to long wait times when it comes to selling but it's safest when you've got something valuable. I also avoid pvp hotspots like Reaper's Chests and active skull forts(the reward for a skull fort is a hefty load of treasure and tends to attract those who are ready and willing to fight tooth and nail for them from other players.) If you're in a sloop, smallest and most fragile ship, and someone is chasing you down and you don't want to deal with them, sail into the wind. The sloop cannot stand up against much in terms of firepower but it has the tightest turn radius, it's the hardest to hit with cannon fire, and it outruns every other ship against the wind. DO NOT go with the wind or the brig and galleon will catch you.

 

If you just don't want pvp at ALL, then I'm afraid this is probably not a game you'll enjoy. Because despite your best efforts it will happen eventually.
