Weekend Gamer: What are you playing?


Sometimes there are too many options of what to do over the weekend. First one should almost always be GAMES. What are you playing?

I just got a review unit of GreedFall from the publisher, so I will be checking that one out when I finish up working on my daughters's room.

I'll be avoiding Borderlands 3, instead probably playing my go-tos Overwatch and Rocket League. GreedFall looks intriguing but I'll wait to see more before making any decisions.

You're back! We missed you!

We have to find some time for some gaming again. Getting Borderlands 2? I do have The Division 2 now if you want to go for some co-op any Friday night or Saturday afternoon.

Well now that we're home after having to pay 800 dollars to fly back, since Canada's lovely medical system left us stranded a 10 hour drive away from home, likely some Battletech, & Spiderman GOTY edition

Super Mega Baseball 2, Blasphemous and Greedfall. I'm sure something else too!

A lot of Quake 1. I completed it with the Quake 1.5 mod and loved everything except for the new expanded final level. Think of Xen on steroids. I'm halfway through the official expansions which I never played before and a few levels into the AMAZING Arcane Dimensions mod. If you ever liked the oldschool FPS games I cannot recommend it enough. Think of Quake 1 with a hub system and 20+ years of map making innovation. I love it and the little tweaks to weapons and gameplay are good enough to consider an upgrade over the original and not just another mod.

Still enjoying Gears 5. There's something more fun about this one than the last couple (at least). It keeps drawing me back in. The extremely beautiful graphics help, but it is a big, different game than the prior ones.

Look at this quick clip of how the ice behaves. It also will keep your snow tracks for hours. It is just really cool.


I'm also always playing The Binding of Isaac. There is a new expansion coming out that I got to play at PAX, which I'm looking forward to. Just picked up Madden as well, watching the Seahawks got me pumped to play.

I gave up on Gears 5 because the graphics are so butt ugly. I just can’t finish the campaign at all. It is the worst looking game I have ever played.

I played a little of Red Dead Redemption online. Mostly, I didn’t run into a lot of people just ganking people for no reason, though I did have a few players who screwed up my missions - which is by design, players can come and kill you when you are on “steal the wagon” missions. That makes those pretty dangerous.

I’m still waiting for them to really add more “content” to the game. I’m not sure if they are focused on trying to figure out how to make online fun or if they are so quiet because they are working on a single player expansion like Undead Nightmare II.

Funny that you mention Quake 1, because I found the bonus disc for Quake 4 on the Xbox 360 that contains Quake 2. Iíve been thinking of playing it. I think it has Achievements and everything.

I keep meaning to go back and finish up Quake 4 on the PC or Xbox 360. It had a lot of performance issues on the 360, but it was still a fun game.

I would say I want to see Bethesda go back to Quake, but after Rage 2, Iím not so sure.

Not only is it a good looking game, it is right up there with God of War as far as *console* graphical beauty. The only platform I haven't seen it on is a "Day One" Xbox One, in whatever it runs on there, probably 900p? The only bone I can throw you is that you are playing on that? Otherwise... I don't care about console war stuff. I have just as much fun on my Switch as I do on my PS4 Pro and XB1X, as I do on my PC. So saying it is the ugliest game of ANY time is just patently wrong.

Whatever you are seeing, I'm not seeing. The textures flat out refuse to load no matter what settings I use and that makes it easily one of the worst looking games I have ever played. I have seen a lot of posts from other people who have run into the same bug.

Gears of War 4 worked fine on my system, Gears 5 does not. If they patch the game so it works I'll change my mind, but right now it's just an ugly ugly game. It looks like something from the start of the PS3 era. I'll have to take a screenshot so you can see it, it's just bad.
