Finished Saints Row 4. Yeah, I'm disappointed with this one.

I loved the references to the past games, but it didn't feel like a SR game. I think it was the emphasis on the sci-fi stuff and the super powers, too out of the place. The main campaign was weak and the humor was hit or miss, whereas SR2/3 were spot-on. Gameplay-wise, the novelty of the powers wore off fast and it got dull in a way the past games didn't.

Yup. Not to mention there are companions and henchmen you can hire to fill the gaps in your party.

It's a fantastic game, the praise and hype is well deserved in this case. I'm impressed by the class(less) system and the many ways you can manipulate the battlefield to your favor.

Soundtrack is stellar too.

Divnity: OS - Gameplay seems to be excellent from what I've played and the interactivity with the scenary sets it apart from almost all RPGs I've played. True to a Larian game, the dialogues are funny/witty: couldn't help but smile when an enemy was complaining about arthritis. Had to tear myself away from the computer or I'd keep playing.

I just played SR3 for a couple hours on my /NEW NEXT GEN CONSOLE/ from eight years ago. I'm thinking about rebuying SR2, since that doesn't really work right on my laptop either.

Actually it would be a good idea to get SR2 for the PS3/360. Even beefier PCs have problems with the game, be it modded with GotR/Powertools. Not to mention the muffled audio. Sometimes I think it's unsalvageable.

It's a fun game and (imo) the best in the series, but the port was a shoddy work.

I got a game breaking bug in Fallout NV at about midway in...
That pretty much killed any drive I had about playing the game for a second time =(

Oh well, not like I'm low on stuff to play at the moment.

Sorry to ask, but what was the problem? If you're playing on PC you might be able to fix it via console.

Saints Row 4 is killing me, so good. Glad it run decently on my aging pc.

What's up with these Steam community votes? Ikaruga, Expeditions, Divinity OS all lost. Unbelievable. I'll probably buy this stuff tomorrow and be done with the sale.

Skyrim modding adventures - Ditched Requiem, I don't have patience to level grind anymore nor want to exploit the system. Skyrim Redone has too many perks of the kind "increse x by %" which I'm not fond of. Settled on Sperg + Deadly Combat + Morrowloot and did some fine tunning with SkyTweak. So far, so good.

This Steam streaming feature is fricking awesome. I managed to play ETS2 and FTL on an old Atom netbook! It's a bit choppy but still.

A friend of mine gifted my Skyrim because "you really need to check out a mod called Requiem". Uhm, alright.

First thing I did was look for a camera mod because I can't into first person games. Gods, there's a mod for everything you can think of, I even found a lock-on one (which is pretty good, btw). Installed Alternate Start, which put me in some snowy region full of hoarkers (or whatever they are called) and saber-tooth cats. Later I got my ass kicked by a pack of wolves before submitting them to hell with some well placed shield bashes.

So far it's been surprisingly fun, since the mod descales the whole world. The combat isn't on the same level as Dark Souls/MH (Gamederp Gamebryo of course) but it's serviceable with the aforementioned lock-on mod.

Beat Fallout a while ago. Despite the rocky start, random CTDs and weird bugs, which I believe might have been caused by the Fixt (oh the irony), it ended up as an excellent game. Should've stickied to the vanilla version, though.

The freedom to play the way you want was invigorating too. Most problems could've been solved by smooth talking, whereas in NV you eventually had to shoot something. Learning of the humble beginnings of the BoS, NCR and other factions was nice, better than just reading the wiki.

Now on to (unmodded) Fallout 2.

Which is exactly why I'm not a big fan of "the cloud".

It's a bit weird how most gaming-related websites are reporting the shutdown without properly explaning the reasons for such action. Then again, there seems to be an anti-Nintendo thing going on lately.

Woah, new journal topic!

Thanks to the GOG giveaway last year I'm playing the original Fallout. I wasn't enjoying much until I hit the Boneyard. That Cathedral was way creepy and idk why but it reminded me of Orwell's "1984". Unfortunately my visit triggered the super mutants random encounters, which keep wiping me out. Or maybe I'm terrible at character building because the same thing happened in New Vegas. To make things worse I can't get into the Brotherhood camp to get the power armor training in order to alleviate the issue. Maybe it's karma for blowing them up in NV.

Went back to MH3 Ultimate after messing around in Freedom Unite. I'm really fond of third gen, even if underwater battles are iffy. Whereas FU was at times akin to a puzzle game, 3U feels more organic and reactive.

Replaced the stupid fan on my motherboard's chipset on my desktop.  Not talking about the CPU fan here (that's easy to replace), just this rinky-dink little thing on the motherboard.  But they sure didn't make it easy to service, you have to unmount the entire motherboard to get it off.  And since the motherboard is the thing that everything connects to, unmounting the motherboard means disconnecting (and later reconnecting...) everything...

Oh, this is actually the second time I've had to replace this damn fan...

Reminds me the one unfortunate time I had a proper "gaming pc" fitted with an MSI board and VGA. Had to replace the fans on both. One year later, the VGA started displaying artifacts and died; the mobo went soon after. That pc only lasted 2 or 3 years. Needless to say, I never bought anything MSI again or any high end parts.
