XCom 2 (~ 2hrs): every design change was designed to prevent me playing the way I wanted to. Fuck that.

Maybe I'll give that game another chance someday since I absolutely loved Enemy Unknown/Within, but XCOM 2 feels so cluttered with systems and mechanics that are overwhelmingly distracting, especially with the expansion installed. My time with it on PS4 was also marred by an awful framerate and numerous bugs that guarantee that game can never be safely played without frequent save scumming. It's a bummer.

This episode made me have a lesser opinion of the suicide mission. The character deaths don’t seem entirely related to what their role is. Tali is a tech expert but is not quite expert enough to close a door, which didn’t have anything to do with her being in the vents? I love what they were going for but seeing someone go through it for the first time makes the structure of the mission seem odd and misleading.

@shivermetimbers: I had an okay time with the vehicle physics, but the camera placement always kinda bothered me. They put the driver’s seat in the center of the screen, so your car was always off-center. It just never felt right.

It’s been a while since I’ve played them but I remember 5 being considered inferior to 4 by the community. I was definitely disappointed by it. The game is generally the same with some new features but they also cut some stuff from 4 for reasons unknown to me. I wish I could be more specific but that’s worth looking into.

I like this idea! The Xbox 360 played a pretty defining role in my life and I'm looking forward to seeing you reminisce on the platform.

My man-child dream of accumulating my own personal video games museum, an Aladdin's cave of consoles and games from through the years telling the story of my history with my favourite pastime, has had to face up to reality.

I really feel this. I've recently made the decision to go all-digital after realizing that my physical collection of PS2 and Xbox 360 games are really the only ones that are going to hold significance for me. I seriously have a bunch of PS4 discs that I totally forgot I bought. I've also moved house 6 or 7 times in as many years and have come to really dislike boxes in all shapes and forms.

I got a kick out of your insistence (rightfully so) of properly capitalizing SNAPMAP.

Truthfully I completely forgot the feature existed until this very moment. A friend of mine used it a bunch and said there was awesome stuff there. It just wasn’t something I was ever looking for.

@thepanzini: I've never been big on any non-Conquest modes in Battlefield, but the Outpost mode they recently added is pretty cool. It's like a modified Conquest where the flags are radio towers that need to be destroyed and rebuilt for your team.

So i decided to reinstall Fallout76 because the argument "it's good now" 10 minutes in i saw mobs glitching through the world mobs lying in a death state attacking me mobs patting being wrong ( i was standing on a rock and they freaked out) So yeah Fallout76 still a "bugger".

Their presentation got me interested so I installed the free trial on PS4, which took 2.5 days to complete. Couldn't make it past the sign in screen because it kept crashing. Amazingly I'm still interested in some day checking the game out. Some day.

@bobobones: I think I preferred how pistols and SMGs handled in BF1, but generally speaking I would agree. I just wish they could make the tanks feel better to use!
