I wouldn't say speedrunning, as in areas such as Shrine of Amana I took my time and made sure I didn't get grouped upon, but yeah, path of least resistance. There's no point adding optional bosses in there with the run at stake.

Absolutely. Congrats.

Did you play it offline or run the risk of those troublesome invaders?


Yeah, I tried online but occasionally you get invaded by a hacker or just invaded when you're already in a bit of a tricky spot. That said, the NPC invaders can still be a massive pain the arse.

I dunno whether to get Rocket League for xbox one. I already have it lined up on the PC. I think it's probably going to be a 2 hour game really once I have got reasonable at it and won some lost some. I can't see it having enough longevity to warrant cross platforming. Only Ark will get that luxury so far.

DayZ I may get for PC too. Not a fat lot of stuff I want for xbone atm.

I play it on PC, I think the Xbone has some exclusive cars and things, but Microsoft set the price so DLC will be more expensive. It's good fun though, and I'd recommend getting the game regardless of platform. if you get it on PC I'd be up for a few games at some point.

Finally got into Far Cry, playing 3 and already bought the Gold Edition of 4. That fucking moment when I finally got hold of some boars so I could hold more than a pitiful handful of ammo at once was glorious, even if I had to battle through tigers and leopards to get there.

Just jump to 3, it's great :P

Got ambushed by tigers again but now I have the best ammo pouch so don't care, worth it. I also got the shit scared out of me when I briefly went into the water to escape some enemy guys and a fucking aligator attacked me out of nowhere :lol:

Aye might do.


I got called earlier by the guy in charge in our ark clan. Seemed a bit urgent, so I didn't pick up and I am not returning the call. I don't wish to hear that our base has been taken over by French people or worse.

Hahaha if only. Large dino poos will nigh on kill you if you eat them. Yeah would make me laugh if he was asking me to bring stims. :lol: Nah I think its something catastrophic like our allies have been done over and we're next. It is kinda pissing me off really because when we were getting our sea pen fucked over it became apparent without our spino how absolutely hopeless we are at pvp. Yet, that was 2 weeks ago and he's still playing the game pve. He wants to breed raptors, I want to craft rocket launchers. He's the boss.

The Divisions alright.

Not amazing, but decent for a cheeky bit of cover based shooter grinding with loot upgrades.
