Will buy.


Banner Saga 2 is great. Survival Mode is even more addictive.

First time I've ever encountered an instance where a mobile game I played was abruptly shut down.

Star Wars: Uprising, was not the greatest game but it had enough going for it to make it interesting, and the story was actually kinda cool (it was set right after ROTJ). Their last few tweaks a few weeks ago were quite frustrating though--I imagine they made the game harder and more inaccessible because they wanted players to pony up $$$ to advance. I just went ahead and deleted it off my phone. Kinda feel jipped after investing so much time but oh well.

Yeah, I was playing Real Racing 3 on the iPad with the goal of acquiring every car available without actually forking over real $$ but it just proved to be pointless. I quit after getting about 95 out of 104 cars; I think it now has over 130. But i went from 15-20 hours per week to zero on that.

Looking forward to playing BF 1 on PC in a few days; I pre-ordered but won't have a chance to play until the weekend. Been playing BF 4 until now.

Finally am trying Banner Saga based on your rec....had it on PSN for $5. Of course I also ordered the Skyrim redo...so I expect to lose myself for a few months there.

I am hooked on Star Trek Timelines on my pad but with these Android games there's always a payoff point between wasting money and free.

I will tell you that on the first playthrough of Banner Saga, the random events can be kind of frustrating with losing caravan folks and resources. You can gain items and resources when you choose correctly, so if you don't plan on playing many playthroughs then you can read guides as you go along to make the most beneficial choices. Just try not to read ahead. Follow the story in-game.

So I start Skyrim again and all of a sudden Master Vampires are randomly attacking towns and killing vital NPCs....................

I say WTF is this?

Apparently this edition of Skyrim comes with all of the DLC in particular one called Dawnguard which has all of these idiotic vampires randomly attacking towns....

Now I wouldn't mind much but I am not equipped to handle Master Vampires right now so I have to run away and the idiotic townspeople get wiped out. THESE ARE VERY IMPORTANT QUEST GIVING NPCS.

So come to find out you can't even disable the DLC!!!!!!!! Nor are there any mods to put the town people in their houses or stop the vampire attacks. That is just f'n stupid that the whole game gets ruined by random bad ass vampires slaughtering towns. I can understand dragon attacks.....but the vampire attacks occur FREQUENTLY if you fast travel in at night. STUPID!!! People have been bitching about this dumb DLC for years and not only does Bethesda NOT FIX IT they include it in their brand new game with no option to turn it off!!!!


WINNER!!! F'N IDIOTS!

Banner Saga 3 kickstarter.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/st ... er-saga-3/

I had no qualms about dropping $20 for this after the first two games. The stretch goals are great too.

Yeah, I had traded in my original copy for close to what I paid for it, but got an itch to go revisit the same cities that I visited on our Italy trip. So I picked up a used copy and playing it now. So good.

I think its amazing just how damn accurate the portrayals of Rome are.......every time I see shit be it in a movie or on TV....I am like why does that look so familiar.....wait I've climbed that at least 10 times!

Sadly I have now remembered that Revelations was pretty damn poor.

Lately I have been playing Horizon Zero Dawn. A fine game that reminds me of some of my favorite elements of AC and ME. I also like that it has a female lead...of which my daughter says Daddy now you don't have to be a girl all the time in your games. Apparently that's my gender thing.

Unfortunately Mass Effect 4 shows up today.....so I might get lost in that for a while.
