So Fallout 4 has been out for what, 10 days, and already the settlements people are making are getting pretty elaborate.

Watch the video with sound, it's really the icing on the cake :D

Been playing The Walking Dead game. Its not that bad. Bit easy but its entertained me for a while. Turns out I have the complete season. I thought I only had the first two episodes. Not a priority but I might get season 2 for the right price.

Starting Black Flag next I think...I know I have already completed it but not on next gen. :D I also just bought Goat Simulator because...well...not sure.

The Walking Dead games are brilliant! Probably my fav Telltale game. The story is very well done and season 2 gets even better.

Played around 20 hours of Fallout 4 but still not that impressed with it! The storyline is pretty good but the companion system is terrible and have zero intention of doing any building of settlements because it's a really terrible idea for a post apocalyptic game. Walking around the map is also really boring and the graphics are just terrible! Feels like i'm playing a PS2 game :lol: Given up with it now and gonna sell it to my mate for £30.

Picked up Tomb Raider last week but haven't really started it yet but the graphics are amazing and there's supposed to actually be a mix of puzzles as well as action this time! Unlike the last Tomb Raider which was just action the whole way through like the Uncharted series which is just boring.

Mates popping around to 'show his new car off.' What he doesn't realise is when he gives me that copy of AC Unity to borrow ill be closing the door in his face and allowing the killing to begin.

Noice. What kinda components you picking up?

On that note, Amazon just gave me 15 quid back cos I picked up a Razer Naga like 10 minutes before it went on black friday sale. I love Amazon.

And all my computer parts are coming tomorrow. Only thing that remains from the old build will be harddrive and graphics card. You'll be missed little buddy, but your shit tier CPU are throttling me to fuck. i7 here we goooooooo

I was looking at the Asus motherboard ram and i7 bundle but really wanted it a bit cheaper. Need to buy a power supply but a mate threw a spanner in the works with the one from Corsair so I need to relook.

I've never had much luck with Razer mice -- the wheel either stops scrolling properly, or one of the buttons stops working, usually just after the warranty runs out.

I've had a Roccat Kone XTD for almost a year now, to go with my Ryos MK Glow keyboard. Very happy with it, particularly since Roccat provide a configuration tool for Linux. :yes:

That's fair. Tbh, dipping down to i5 will still sort you for a good few games for a while, I'm just going to i7 to avoid having to upgrade for a bit. And occulus rift.

On the mouse thing, Razers been alright for me. It's been knocked around a bunch over the past 2 and a half years and I'm only replacing it now cos the scroll wheel stops clicking in every now and then and it's a mild annoyance.
