This game feels like the Euro Truck Simulator of extreme sports. I'm digging it but not totally sold on the controls. I really love how open the world is. I'm not a fan of the narrative or dialogue, but I understand the developers are french so maybe that's why all the speech feels fake and unnatural? I'm not sold on the progression either, but at least there are things to unlock. I just don't have a boner for unlocking the stuff because I don't feel I have a reason or real opportunity to show my stuff off to anyone. There doesn't seem to be a sense of community even though you run into people flying down mountains here and there. Unless I'm missing something, there's no way to chat to people or talk to them over a mic.

I had to make a list for myself last year after I was hit by a drunk driver and immobilized on the couch for many months. Chill games only, preferably ones I could play from the couch. Thing is, I didn't have a modern console at the time, just my PC. Set up a table at the end of the couch and hooked my rig up to a medium sized TV. Here are some of my reccomendations while I needed chill games to play while on painkillers for a few months:

  • Truck Simulator (American/Euro)
  • Dirt Rally (has a pucker factor but not much thinking required. Bonus: Can use a controller and I think its on sale now, GREAT racing game).
  • Diablo 3 (Sure you can micromanage the shit out of your build or do what I did: Follow a guide and turn your brain off and kill shit)
  • Stardew Valley
  • Rogue Legacy

Truck Sim was a fun one for having podcasts and video on a second monitor if you're into that. I had it working with a controller pretty well so I didn't have to have a keyboard in my lap. Dirt Rally was the best for just laying back and driving with the controller. Learning how to take corners and feather the throttle/brakes was really relaxing but engaging enough to keep me out of a depression slump.

I was running the game on a 680 on medium to low and it played great. Never crashed but certainly didn't look as good as it could have. I now have a 1060 and it's maxed out. Again it runs great and doesn't crash... OR DOES IT? I completed the Chef target with no loss in points whatsoever. One of the cleanest missions I'd ever performed and I was so proud. I smashed that G button on the keyboard and got outta there. As I was watching the camera zoom out and the mission was ending, it froze. The entire damn game froze, audio and all. I had to end the process. I opened the game back up and to my relief, I didn't fail the target. Nor did I complete it. I had to do it again, only this time losing about 6000 points due to a hicup in my stealthy-ness. Bummer.

While we sit around waiting for Fallout 4 to activate, lets share some of those hidden youtube nuggets. Specifically, video game song mashups. I know I've got a ton buried in my favorites somewhere. Some of these are probably NSFW obviously. I'll start it off with something recent:

... I do intend to stop supporting Konami completely post-MGSV.

At least I can rest assured MGSV is the final Metal Gear game. It's Kojima's series. Even if Konami decides to try and make more, it's over.

Just... just need one more hit man, for old times sake, c'mon, you understand...

Sounds like a very selfish decision.

I envision EA as the World’s Greatest Games Company.

Woops sorry, you lost me.
