What's happening

  • Trying chimera squad (overheating issues aside) gameplay wise it’s not bad, I do think the price is fair for it.

    HOWEVER

    The story is bad, a Lott if lore and world building subdued for a cast that try to be either edgy or out one line each other as much as possible. That shouldn’t be in any game.

    I didn't, I just installed the epic launcher. And it's actually better than Steam, works smoother, isn't laggy, doesn't crash.
    Tribalism is not for me, breaking monopolies is always a good thing.

    Welcome back Commander and erm..Commander. With Epic games, well that was disappointing for me but left and move along. Have I installed it? Nope, simply out of concern it won't run on my PC. I have gog installed and that doesn't work.

    So probably won't be trying something new till I at least get a new computer.

  • I figured I be one of the older folk that still plays the 94 xcom, but it turns out there is someone in their 60's that still plays it. Well ok fair do, but i still see myself as the old one around the community! (My great wisdom is what makes me old) :P
