Sonic Mania is fun.  That is all.

Speaking of games that are famous for their soundtracks...

Crusader Kings 2 is getting a new DLC, and it looks really shit. Basically, it's China but without actually having China on the map. If ever there were a sign that it's time to start over with a better engine, it's this.

Okay, the Reaper spec for Necromancer in Guild Wars 2 is awesome.  I literally scream people to death.

I also pissed in an old woman's sauce pan when I was a child. Have you?

Yakuza 0 is fuckin amazing.  Kiryu-san is simultaneously badass and adorable, even though he's a giant of a man, and Majima-san is a smooth fucker...when he's not slamming people's heads into walls with a smile on his face.

[ETA]

Think I finally figured out how to beat Misters Shakedown.  Gotta go Ali on their asses.

Why can't I hire a Mr. Shakedown as security for my properties?  I know I could swing at least one of em with a decent sales pitch.  Keep those Billionaire cunts off my back.

So, anyone else playing Destiny 2 on PC? Game's pretty solid so far and is crazy well optimized. It's a rare find for me to be able to hit near locked 60fps at max settings and the lowest I've seen in Destiny is around 53fps. Literally the only reason I don't have ambient occlusion and texture filtering at max is because turning those down all but eliminates regular dips.

I haven't been but I might be soon. I watched it be streamed for almost 14 hours on Tuesday, and it looks REAL good. The only issue is I don't have any friends to play with.

Been playing it since it dropped.  Cause I do that.

Ironbite-you can figure out who the dumb purple headed hunter is.

Wolfenstein 2 looks good.

The plot has been getting crazier and crazier with each game. Which is still true even though they left the supernatural stuff two games ago...

The only thing I dislike that the current timeline has retconned BJ killing Hitler. He's still alive in this one. (Which does explain/change few things. For example, the previous game did not end with a "Nazis lose" button. Instead they just lost their head science guy and the scrappy band of rebels has a submarine that they can now use to continue their fight.)
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

Add me if you want. Let's shoot Gary back to... whatever the Cabal homeworld is called. I'm running a Stormcaller Warlock.

And I'm at level 20.

Ironbite-when'd the game come out again?

Meanwhile, I'm getting back into Mount and Blade: Warband. Personally, I don't know why everyone is so terrified of sea raiders. They go down easily enough and they're a wonderful font of XP and loot.

I'm all in on Destiny 2, man. been playing since the first one on PS3 and it feels like such a better game on PC, it's unbelievable. the performance on my computer is a bit more inconsistant though, but that's probably just my aging pc. The fact the game has no global chat is completely insane, though. hit lvl20 tonight on my Warlock (ran a Titan on D1 and I'm really enjoying Warlock) and looking forward to eventually running the raid. PVP is so much more enjoyable on PC, the ability to make quick turns and no reliance on the auto-aim improves things dramatically.
