Console Gaming.......I feel dirty.

Postby gpa-gone-west » Tue Jun 05, 2018 10:04 am

OK, I am a long time confirmed PC gamer as you all know. But a couple of weeks ago my PC died. I was mortified. As I currently dont have the finance to get another one I am left with two options:-

1) Watch TV
2) Use my Xbox One

I tried '1'. I was not impressed. That leaves me with dusting off (literally dusting it off) my Xbox One. I will not play anything that requires acuracy as I cant aim for shit with a joypad. Plus I havent played a shooter in a long time. I have come up with three games I can get lost in.

ESO: Summerset Isles
I have played ESO (Including the Morrowind, Orsinium, Thieves Guild, Dark Brotherhood DLC's) on my PC quite extensively. Its around £25 for the Xbox version. But I would also need a gold live account, which is around £30'ish on top of that. I also could not group with my son as he is still on the PC version and that has a different server to the Xbox version.

Kingdom Come: Deliverence
This looks interesting. Based on medieval times so no magic and no dragons, and looks pretty good graphically. I do like the look of it. Its around £45 and as its single player would not need a gold account. But it sounds like its a bit buggy at the moment.

Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Game of the Year Edition
I know this is a few years old now. But I played it on my PC for a while and really enjoyed it. Cant remember why I stopped. I got distracted by something else and never went back. The Game of the Year edition is around £35 and contains two add-ons and 16 DLC's. Again, it would not need a gold live account.

So out of the three, what would you all go for.

The Witcher, hands down for me.

I'm still playing it and honestly I've lost count of the hours I've put into it now. It's not perfect and yes it has some glaring flaws, but man its just so great to sit down and get lost for a while.

The thought of playing Kingdom Come deliverance does appeal to me. But with Witcher 3 coming with both add ons and the DLC's, it would be daft to not get that.

+1 for The Witcher 3. Also don't you have Xbox Live gpa as you could take advantage of all the free games it has to offer while you are at it.

Right then, Witcher 3 it is then.

My dad gave me an old laptop he isnt using. Clearly not the greatest laptop ever created. But it runs Oblivion without any issues, so I have jumped back into the one Elder Scrolls game I never really played. Classic old style graphics and really big interface apart, I am having a blast. Until Witcher 3 turns up, I shall continue to play that.

MOD IT!

Something like DarnUI overhaul really helps

I shall look into mods. I had a few cool ones for Fallout 3 & 4 installed.

EDIT
That is one hell of a mod, makes a massive improvement.

At this point I just like to call you attention to this comment.

It seems you have found one of the glaring flaws. They did release an alternate control style via a patch some time ago. Not sure if it made to the consoles though, worth a dig through the settings to see if it's there.

Stick with it though it's good in spite of it controlling like utter dug shit. :D

It may have caused me to shout and swear a little, while the twatty git did a dance before shooting through the doorway like his life depended on it. :lol:
