Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus

The reboot of wolfenstein (The new order) was a pretty fun game nazi blasting at it's best running along blasting away duel wielding shotguns and machineguns blowing armor off mechanized nazis like confetti and then glueing to yourself was a fun time. It's story with an alternate 1960's where the reich won the war and dominated Europe and the US with their superior tech was fun too.

More frustrations in GTA Online

Since I've been grinding my way through research items burning large amounts of money to try and get the unlocks I want I've been playing a lot of GTA online in the week.

It seems like the hacker problem is worse than ever as almost every session I join seems to have someone hacking. Even ones that look normal and seem like they will be a good easy session to just quietly run some cars and the odd supply mission to keep research running ends up with some player bombing me and 10 other players all over the map at the same time then laughing about it in the chat.

̶A̶s̶s̶a̶s̶s̶i̶n̶s̶ ̶C̶r̶e̶e̶d̶ ̶M̶o̶r̶d̶o̶r̶ ̶2̶ Shadow of War - initial impressions

Follow up to Shadow of Mordor the sequel basically extends the good bits from the first one (the nemesis system, the ranger abilities, riding various animals over orcs) and adds extra levels of depth ... and also loot boxes.

The game plays as an extended version of the original shadow of mordor which I was quite a good game the innovative nemesis system adding a layer of depth to the game that made it a lot of fun to play. In Shadow of war they've taken that a step further and added some new modifications.

Lone Echo is incredible the VR game I've been waiting for

Ever since I saw the first trailers of lone echo I was facinated by it's unique locomotion techinique great graphics and interesting human and an AI robot in space story. Made by "Ready at Dawn" who made some of the best PSP games like Daxter and the god of war psp games (also The Order 1886 which looked amazing but was very very boring to play) Lone Echo and it's multiplayer component Echo Arena looked like they were going to be the first big professional vr game.

Fortnite might make a good weekend game at some point

Still in early access but supposedly pretty solid and from Epic mega games who sort of know how to make multiplayer games

A 4 player coop game of two halves part one in the day you scavenge materials and build a fort make weapons and traps then part 2 night comes and you repel a horde style attack filled with monsters.

It has four different classes that have different play styles

so minecraft crossed with L4D running in unreal 4 and featuring overwatch style loot boxes

It's like GTA crossed with Magic the gathering and a little MS Encarta and other inaccurate descriptions

Was playing this interesting pre pre pre alpha game off of itch.io called Autonauts.

It was described as Factorio meets Minecraft. Two games I really enjoy but the description was misleading. It could be better described as Factorio with vaguely 3d graphics and a pseudo voxel/minecraft art style.

Factorio is all 2d and sprite graphics the game play in all in the 2d plane. Autonauts has 3d graphics but the gameplay is still just 2d.

Revenger 55

Been looking for a small quad brushless quad for a while more power than a tiny whoop with proper brushless motors something like 2s power but still small and safe enough I feel happy flying it inside and around people.

There used to be a nice quiet area near the old office where I could get some flight time in but it's now pretty far away and also on the property of another company. So I've been keeping a look out. \
