I don't usually take photos but when I came across this for the first time, I just had to take a screenshot of it. Ubisoft does such a good job crafting detailed worlds, it almost feels like you've stepped into a painting.

Listening to podcasts is a requirement with Ubisoft open world games, which isn’t a bad thing at all.

I could name easy ones like Fallout 76 and Metal Gear Survive, but Call of Duty 4 Remastered was the most personally insulting to me. They took a beloved game, one of my favourite games of all time and made it so it was only available to those who purchased the premium version of Infinite Warfare, bastardised the game with microtransactions of which included overpowered weapons and required you to rebuy the DLC for more than what it was worth back in 2008.

Activision has got it easy compared to EA, they've gotten away with a lot, but their practices are still to this day, shamefully insulting to consumers.

I agree that the discussion went on a little too long but I found nothing wrong with how it was done. I disagree with RDR2 being on that list but I found Dan's arguments to be reasonable and a lot of others in the room seemed to agree with him more or less. He came out of that better than Brad did.

Going by some of the responses here. Are we seriously copyrighting culture now? Who even decides that? Bunch of nobodies on Twitter who Google who made the sombrero first? Do we all have some committee of every distinct race and culture that decides what belongs to them?

It seems such a small thing to rattle on about that can't be validated, controlled and provides little to the betterment of society as a whole. It pushes people away from each other, it makes people defensive, encourages segregation and ultimately leads to more racism.

So... can you still do stupid shit in this game like the game advertised or is it actively preventing you from doing that for some stupid reason? Like because if you can do that... then where is the problem aside from the keybinding issues? Like yeah, those issues should be criticised but not all games need to have this full monty that appeals to absolutely everybody, it doesn't need to be the next big thing. It can be just for a small audience for a specific purpose.

No such sales for Europe. What a bummer.

I felt that I was done with Far Cry after 5 and this being post-apocalyptic probably won't change that. If anything it makes me even less inclined. Those settings have become stale for me.

I want to go back and play God of War and Spiderman as I left those unfinished. I want to make a start on Detroit: Become Human. I want to play at least a single run through of Hitman 2 and if I got enough time, maybe more Forza Horizon 4, Battlefield V, Red Dead Online and... Fallout 76. I should try Celeste too.

And we also got Just Cause 4 coming out next week... so a lot to play this month. :D

I bought an Xbox One X, Fallout 76 and Battlefield V for a pretty decent price. And... a 64GB memory stick.
