Recently got some pickups for PS3. I broke my arm in September so PC games are still on hold because of lack of arm movement and swollen hand. However, I have started playing PS3 games again since swelling is gradually going down and I can at least use the controller to some degree. Here's a video of my pickups on my youtube channel:
I am really enjoying Splinter Cell Blacklist, and what a treat to be taken to another world besides this painful one!
How to regularly get free gems and ankhs in Tomb Raider Relic Run on Android when you get new Supply Drop notifications, without playing:
1. Load app
2. Tap these as screens come up: Store / Get More Gems / X / Watch Video
3. After watching the video, tap the back arrow top left. You will receive 5 gems. Tap your device's physical back arrow to go back to the Store screen
4. Tap X / Supply Drop Ready / Collect to receive coins or ankhs. X again to get to the main screen if you want to play.
5. You will get a new notification every 24 hours or so, so rinse and repeat. This will quickly build up your collection. Use to buy and upgrade.
Gaming Treats Journal:
Loving FarCry 4 (scenery to die for!), Rise of the Tomb Raider (finished but @ around 98% completion with a couple of hard-to-find collections illuding me) and Fallout 4 (started yesterday and loving it!).
I'm addicted - to the games and my new rig & gaming keyboard!!
A couple of days ago I bought a new laptop for gaming (to replace my Vista 5+ year old laptop), plus a gaming keyboard. Fan-bloody-tastic!!
Hubby gave me FarCry4 18 months ago but we didn't realise it was OS-dependent so of course my Vista wouldn't play it. So it's super cool to have a fast gaming rig that will play all the modern games. I'm looking to get Rise of the Tomb Raider as well, plus FarCry Primal...eventually.
Started playing FarCry4 last night and the graphics are super terrific (laptop is plugged into my flatscreen monitor). I have an NVidia 2Gb GeForce 940MX graphics card. The keyboard is very responsive and an added plus is now I can see the keys in the dark - good for my eyes.
Oh, and I really like Windows 10 shock horror!
Excuse all the superlatives while I go back to playing
Over 'n' out!
I'm satisfying my itch and replaying Skyrim from the beginning. I'm about 2 months in or some such. A few hours here and there because I've started a study course and can't afford to waste time. HOWEVER, that said, Skyrim is not wasting time and it's a wonderful way for me to relax. Yup, I relax killing trolls at Keeps or Draugrs (notice the word "guard" backwards?) in long-forgotten dungeons.
Skyrim's music is just beautiful. Sometimes I play just for the music. Jeremy Soule wrote the score. Here's his Streets of Whiterun theme, my video from my riteasrain youtube channel:
And a comment someone made on there:
"Multiplayer is incredibly overrated. It makes it so the games have a shelf-life, a moment where there’s not enough people playing it anymore and the only way you can play with them is to painstakingly gather enough people to play it and even then a lot of the game’s content is locked away for public matchmaking. And that’s assuming the publisher doesn’t shut down the servers completely after a few years. Games like Skyrim don’t have that problem, in fact as time goes on modders make hundreds of hours more content to play."
I just broke out FarCry 3 again. I've finished the game and I'm tentatively looking at resetting outposts. Why tentatively? - cos I'm chicken that's why. I'm trying to work out where I should be when I do it - inside an outpost safe house? Lol that'd be fun but probably mean death. Maybe the game will take me to Amanaki Town and I'll start from there. Should be fun. I've got all the weapons I want, Loot Pack is full, and I'm all set up with healing stuff.
Wish me luck!
So I've finished Operation: Anchorage, The Pitt, and Point Lookout. Point Lookout was pathetic, Anchorage was ok, and The Pitt was probably the best of the three but don't think I could've got through the final bit without the tgm cheat ("toggle god mode"). Ah, cheats, where would I be without them. They're great when you've beaten the heck out of a game and you just want some fun.
Yesterday I reinstalled Fallout 3. Five years since I finished it, 2009! How time flies. I was itching to play something, it was a rainy day (great for plays) so Fallout it was. I also have the 4 DLCs (downloadable content) I haven't touched and got them a few years after completion, so today I'll install some of those.
I noticed the Take It Back! quest was open and so I went to the Citadel. However, 10 mins in I remembered I'd already done it 5 years ago - the Purified Water one - & finished the game but here it was again. I just couldn't be bothered. However, I've just read that to play the Broken Steel DLC I have to finish that quest (again) to continue on, because without BS you cannot wander the world after the game completes. Hopefully I'll find a cheat that works. So far none online work.
My thoughts on the game years later is it's not as full on as I thought. My character is far less immersive than say in Skyrim. When I change the camera angle to swing around and see characters I'm talking to on quests, I turn around as well which is weird. Far more stiff. It's fun though revisiting lots of places I've forgotten about and I'll do the runaround before venturing on to the DLCs.
