my crew after I change there armor and clothes etc

 

here's more images of  my crew and character see spoiler tags

 

 

 

I'm still playing Ghost Recon Wildlands and even bought the season pass 2 and some  weapons, vehicles and armor sets , like the predator mask and gauntlet set, and dressed the AI Squad member  named Walker as the Predator outfit wearer 

 

My character is wearing Billy's hat and the partially smoked cigar from  predator and I gave walker the muddy arms, chest and face with the predator  outfit and the smallest  backpack

Uh. The Xbox One has backwards capability, therefore you should be playing GTA IV, why aren't you playing GTA IV instead?

 

You sir are a disappointment to my cause.

GTA IV aged a bit poorly. Hell, even GTA V is a bit meh compared to RDR 2. They really poured their money and their souls into that game.

P.S: GTA V was 15 bucks on Amazon while GTA IV was like 23 bucks, so had to buy it. lol

Haha now I am going to laugh at this because if I don't I will say whatever that comes to my mouth and you probably report me and bad things happen. 

I am just going to laugh that. Alright...When someone throws away old game that really makes me angry. Calling it meh after seeing new one, ignoring the old one. f*ck the old sh*t right?f*ck the old right?Meh who cares about them?

I hardly hold myself from spamming the damn keyboard...

I think it's probably more about a tendency to downplay negative aspects of a game until the new game comes out, when it then becomes easier to accept the negative aspects of the older game because now there's something newer to take its place. Or I could be entirely wrong. Just thinking out loud.

 

But as far as RDR2--which I hope is released for PC so that I can try it out--as impressive as it is on the whole, I've heard things about the gameplay that seem like they would drag the game down a lot for people like me. Just as one example, it seems like they focused on form over function again in many aspects, which may make certain things more realistic visually, but which do not make for good gameplay.

The first season of The Walking Dead from Telltale Games. I'm in chapter three and it's really good. I hope next seasons live up to the expectations.

GTA IV was hyped to hell when it came out but looking back on it now some of the writing is goofy or rather poor. I would still place it above many modern games but I disliked some of the things about the game. I think 3D era games aged a bit better considering they're even older and the story is a bit more basic.

That sums it up about right. GTA IV is the more valuable game. 😛

The one I looked at was the complete edition. Couldn't find a copy of IV by itself. That's probably why it cost more. lol

For anyone on PC, last June GTA V suddenly started dropping steadily in price. The sales are amazing now. These are the lowest prices I've seen:

 

$13.22 Fanatical 12-31-18

$12.50 (Criminal Ent. Starter Pack Bundle) Newegg 3-25-19

$11.99 (Premium Online Ed.) Green Man Gaming 3-29-19 (with VIP)

$11.98 Gamebillet 1-3-19

$8.99 DLGamer 7-7-18 [I've never purchased from these guys]

 

I'm waiting for the Grand Theft Auto Collection to get back down to the price it was apparently at three years ago. It's GTA3, VC, SA, and GTA4 + EfLC.

Just because 3D era games are older does not mean they are better. Sure they did some things better than 4 but not in every way especially story. Just like you said they are basic and not deep and they are just not that good. Your reply is trash.

The story is better than the 3D era games. I was specifically addressing certain parts of the writing for the story. The game went for longer more "movie-like" cutscenes and I think some of the writing doesn't quite hold up (especially compared to more recent R* titles) but it is still better than most games today.

I don't know why, but this Ertan Soner guy always gets mad whenever someone talks about IV.... I've seen him a lot in YT comments as well.

 

To avoid further derailing, I am playing Watch Dogs 2 right now on the XB1.

I'm still playing ghost recon wildlands and bought the warrior package last night, change my characters hat and leg protection from the warrior package and changed one of my AI squad members to have a scull faced paint and  wild life tattoo from the warrior package, the bone vest is also from the warrior package

 

I figured out how to manipulate and maneuver the in game video camera to capture my character using the baseball emote stance with the rifle and grenade, see above, owe in another screenshot my character plays with his pocket knife on his  own which I captured above

Loving my revisit to Bioshock Infinite.  I'm not sure how many times I've played through but enough time has passed where this playthrough feels fresh.

 

The presentation of Bioshock Infinite is just beautiful.

That's why I wait at least two years before replaying my favorite games, or re-reading my favorite books. One can never regain the original experience, but as you said, when enough time passes--and one deliberately does not think about the game in the mean time--one forgets a great deal, and thus the experience is as much like the first time as possible.

 

I enjoyed my second playthrough of BioShock: Infinite last year, but I was reminded of why I hadn't held the game in higher regard, and that is the damage sponginess of the enemies, and to a lesser extent the lack of variety in combat encounters. I had the same problem with my second playthrough of BioShock 2. In neither of the games did I find the combat difficult--just tedious. I told myself that on my next playthroughs of BioShock 2 and Infinite I was going to play on the lowest difficulty setting in hopes that the poor combat will no longer detract from my adventure.

I learned the (Frech) term Mise-en-scène from Ken Levine(Bioshock creator).  We need more games that follow that theory if you ask me.

 

The Mise-en-scene approach was so well executed in the DLC that starts with Elizabeth in France.

 

And yes...I agree the combat in Bioshock Infinate could have been better.  This go I'm just one shooting baddies with my shotgun.  Sometimes a mix of vigors too.

 

The game is still a great ride.

Got sick of Red Dead Online and it's constant connection drops, so recently I've just been playing a mix of Oblivion and Postal 2. And earlier this week, I finished Metro Exodus.

I'm about to start a fresh run of Mass Effect 1-3.  Well...1 through 3 I hope.   Chances are I'll make it a handful of hours into 1 before I question my commitment.

I want to try Mass Effect 1 - 3 since I've always heard such big things about its story and characterization.

 

I started into Mass Effect a couple of years ago, but I found the gameplay mechanics to be distasteful, the combat in particular. From what I can remember, one of my issues was damage sponginess. No, "But RPG!" does not somehow excuse poor combat.

 

If there is a difficulty setting, hopefully turning it down will reduce the annoyance factor and allow me to experience what it is that most people seem to praise about the games.

Yes - there is a difficulty setting that you can turn to casual.  It's worth it just for the story and presentation of the game. Even ME 1 still holds up in my mind.  

 

After I played a few hours last night I started thinking about how they f*cked up ME Andromeda.  What bioware should say to themselves when making a new Mass Effect is "lets make a new movie"  not "lets just continue mass effect".    Treat it like the Star Wars movie franchise.  

 

The universe and lore are enough to carry it forever.
