  • Set up a glue farm at sanctuary.

    You can set up a glue farm? gotta look into it, a little tiresome finding adhesive.

  • Is it just me who's finding a lot of these open world games far too much like hard work? I barely scratched at Witcher 3 before giving in; every quest felt like doing some pointless errand for an area manager from Swindon. And you have to gather all the herbs for your potions.
    MGS5 is great sneaky sneaky fun, but to keep things ticking over you have to go through barely decipherable menus assigning staff with stupid names to do their meaningless shit. And you have to gather fucking herbs for potions.
    Fallout seems to be more of the same - being drawn away from the main game in order to build houses and gather the equivalent of sodding herbs for fucking potions.
    Are these games just made to feel huge, simply by the amount of boring and repetitive tasks they have in them? I think maybe Skyrim wore out my patience for them. The plots in the game are generally shit to begin with, rendered even worse by the stagnant pacing your endless side tasks give them.

  • Yeah man, corn, tato and mufruit with some purified water makes corn starch at a cooking station, I have adhesive coming out of every orifice.

  • s it just me who's finding a lot of these open world games far too much like hard work?

    Yup. GTA 4 was the worst. You'd get calls from your computer girlfriend asking you to do something in the middle of a mission.

    Just Cause 3 is great for this, BTW. With the grapple hook and wing suit, the tediousness of getting between places in a massive world is actually a lot of fun.

  • Oh god, those constant needy calls in GTA4! At least the rest of the game was the usual manic fun.

  • Haven't played MGS (any of them much less 5) but I agree on Witcher 3 - massive let down.

    Initially I had huge hopes for it and it came, I gave few fucks and deleted it. Thing is - I wouldn't play W3 for the campaign. I played to zoom around on a horse and level up and hack stuff. But I found it a clunky, repetitive sinkhole for processor power. Sucked all the fun out of it.

    I'm hoping because I wasn't initially excited for FO4 it'll temper things by the time I get around to playing it. Also a new computer might help.

  • But anyway, Bannerlord.

  • So that Fallout 4 scene where you have an epic battle*, then pop out on to the roof only to see...

    Proper hairs standing up on the back of my neck stuff. Music is incredible!

    * I just hacked the terminal to the weapons store and scored a one hit kill with the Fat Man.

  • Aparently he will go to the dog house in Sanctuary

  • Aparently he will go to the dog house in Sanctuary

    There are three apparently.

    Best to scrap two and move the third one to the front of your house.

  • Or move all three to the front of the house, I brought a dog in the wasteland (look well looked after, unlike a certain Cannondale).

  • Yo' cheated on Dogmeat?

    For shame.

  • Am I being dim, not sure what you're referring to here?

    Must have come across it though

  • So that Fallout 4 scene where you have an epic battle*, then pop out on to the roof only to see...

    There's way more than one battle, can you remember the name of that quest to narrow it down? (and less likely to spoil it for other unless they choose to google it).

  • Wanted to avoid spoilers!

    Main quest. DogMeat leads you to a building, by following the clues. Basically, when it all goes a bit film noir.

  • I never used Dogmeat after finding more companion, as there are a handful of companion whom have their own quest (like Nick, Cait, Piper, MacCready, etc.)

  • Oh yeah, that was truly epic, my favourite companion to date.

    It was wild from start to finish.

  • Yeah sorry you're right to avoid spoilers!

    I literally have no idea what you're talking about (which is good!)

    I've maxed friendship with Cait, Piper, Hancock and trying to do Preston. Guess I'll have to go back to dogmeat after...

  • Is it just me who's finding a lot of these open world games far too much like hard work?

    They give you virtual enemies to keep you deaf and blind. They wanna sap your energy, incarcerate your mind. They give you Fallout 4, MGS3, GTA4, and Witcher 3.

    The rich have got their channels in the bedrooms of the poor, and there's a mighty judgement coming.

  • How about big, cheap, hungry, NVIDIA? Have got a 480 GTX. Could double up as winter heating.

  • Ha, cheers buddy but a bit old for me...

  • Thought I'd seen you talking about a 550 so figured the 480 was a step up from that. Or did you already have a 550 and were looking for an upgrade?
    It was pretty competent still though, happily ran Witcher 3 on medium settings. Only upgraded to a 970 a couple of months back

  • Err... If I did mention 550 it was a fat finger typo. Was looking at a 750 maybe, or 770, or I have no idea. No real idea how the numbering works but will be after the most plug and play hackintoshable card, if I manage to buy and build the hack I have planned. If anyone has a Haswell CPU kicking about please let me know (last piece of the puzzle).

  • I literally have no idea what you're talking about (which is good!)

    In that case, go into the detective agency and speak to someone in there.

    This is all I'm gonna says on this matter.

  • Fair enough, I'm out of selling points for the 480 now
