I don't want to explore, I just want to make a pimping settlement. :-(

That's impressed me as well. I've got no desire whatsoever to build any of the settlements, I just got in, make em, and fuck off again.

And the games been fine with it.

Usually when they make a big feature like that in you can't move for the game slapping it's dick in your face about it, but Fallout 4 has been happy to just let me go about my shit.

Got into Terraria for the first time. Had it for years but never got into it, but my girlfriend decided she wanted to play so I jumped on to give it another go. A lot more fun with a few others involved.

I have played fallout for something like 28 hours now, which considering I was in Glasgow for 2 days and have worked 3 days since it came out ( I had a couple of holiday days) is a lot. I also have 7 power armour frames, only 3 of which are empty now. I'm enjoying it a lot, and the fact I've got so many hours in and feel I've barely scratched the surface is a good sign.

Power Armour modding frames, or actual suits? I've only got one but I've came across a few frames for crafting mods, etc. 14 hours in, level 16.

Suits. I have 2 full sets of T45 one of which I've painted as a minutemen set and modded to type D and one standard, one raider set and half a set of T51 and then 3 empty ones

Not sure if I am just really without practice but I have played about 15 games on Black Ops III and my team has so far not won.

Debating whether it's worth switching from Xbone to PS4. Really feeling like I've backed the wrong horse atm.

EDIT: Also, a few friends and myself were thinking of Twitch streaming a few games. Anyone got any tips on the best ways to configure audio or structure these things?

Off console, no idea, but I will say to check your upload speeds. You'll want around 10mb/s or so upload to stream at a decent quality with no buffering.

Probably should have clarified I'll be streaming through my laptop if anything. I ran a test recording last night so I know I can handle the recording process comfortably, I'll have to check my connection as sometimes it can be amazing and at others it is plain awful.

Can you do that without a capture card on xbone? Might do that myself. Always wanted to show how I ruin peoples gaming experiences on GTA5.

SPEAKING OF. Gta5 is on its way.

Personally wouldnt bother with ps4. I have more fun in multiplayer and a vast total of my mates are xbox till I die.

I'm fairly sure the new consoles have twitch streaming integrated, at least I know the Ps4 does.

For streaming off computer, OBS was the best bet I last checked (Couple of years ago) and there's tons of configuration guides out there.

Well, neither would I normally, but I barely touch my Xbox and the exclusives have been naff, whereas at the very least the PS4 has Bloodborne over there for me to drool over.

Aye, I found that yesterday, I may have a play around with it and do a few test sessions to get the audio right. Or maybe I just hate my own voice, it's hard to tell.

I'm pretty sure there's not a person out there that likes their own voice. We got a guy on teamspeak that streams his league games while chatting to us and it's awful if you forget to mute the stream in time.
