I CAN SAFELY SAY THAT PLAYER UNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS IS THE BEST GAME I'VE EVER PLAYED AFTER THIS - Chris Grant (@BIGHONKINBURGER) ON TWITTER:
...to Player Unknown's Battlegrounds, a last man standing multiplayer offering online. Especially enjoying watching Australian Twitch streamers Sickenxox and Bajo (Steven O'Donnell from ABC's axed game show Good Game). Bajo is hilarious fun and keeps his chat endlessly entertained; he is a born prankster and much loved. I don't have high enough specs on pc or internet to play it myself, and quite honestly I think I would be stressed out of my brain playing it ...but it's fun to watch. There are plenty of players streaming solo or in teams on Twitch from all over the world and it's fun chatting with gamers and learning the ropes. www.twitch.tv
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!
