Post the gats you bought because of videogames.

New Vegas fueled my desire for a lever gun. 336SC in 35 rem. Chopped to 16", Brockman winged front sight, XS rear sight. Little bit of pic rail for a microdot when I'm feeling spicy.


This is one of those rare times that a pistol gripped and round lever looks good, drat

I used New Vegas as a test bed for turning a 590 into a trench gun






Turned out pretty good

Why was Triss bad? I am 100% Yennifer but I must have missed something. I tune most of the mage bla bla bla stuff out though.

I went back to play some more and I thought my weird scars from Gunter had been removed but they seem to be back and I hate it

Triss gaslit Geralt non stop because she'd been wanting him for herself for ages and saw an opportunity with his memory loss to fill his head with bunk. Friends don't do that, assholes do that.

So far the most fun I have had in RDR2 is waiting by a river, lassoing people and rifling through their pockets for alms for the poor before dragging them into the water and singing "Shall We Gather by the River" to celebrate their baptism.

I only played Gears 1 once and briefly. I was visiting a friend and playing the Xbox360 for the first time ever and trying out his games. My reaction to Gears of War was "meh" and spend the rest of my time at his place playing Viva Pinata.

Viva Pinata was weird in that five minutes with it and I'm drat near passed out. Only other game to do that to me was Don't Starve.

Wish I knew how that worked cause holy poo poo either game is stronger than any sleep aid I've ever tried.

Thermos posted:

Gears 3 is probably my favorite. The story had some cool moments and the multiplayer was nearly perfect IMO. Then in 4 they took out all the stuff I enjoyed because the hardcore playerbase just wants to roll around with gnashers.

I knew folks that'd mark the center of their screen and just turbo sprint everywhere with the gnasher, poo poo got really old really fast.

I always forget about how bullet spongey things get. It didnít seem as bad in 2 though. Am I misremembering?

It got better in Div 2, as the sponge enemies in 1 could only be negated by very specific builds. Of course the usual rebuttal is "hurr burr it's diablo with guns hurrr"

A fresh char in diablo can clear out a crowd with a couple of clicks so hmmm.

The thing with Division having builds you can do to negate the sponges hinges on you dealing with sponges to get them in the first place. Then they're only viable until pissbabies on reddit yell about ~*The Meta*~ and the devs cave to their whims.

Look up how to get the white Arabian. It's by a lake up north and is pretty much the best horse in game.

The white Arabian is fast, but that's about it. It's extremely skittish and doesn't have much health. The Missouri Fox Trotter on the other hand is nearly as fast, doesn't get spooked by twigs, and has tons of health and stamina.

So, with RDR2, is it just impossible to get perfect skins off some animals or what, because I'm shooting Grizzlies with express rounds from my Springfield and it's taking three shots and I'm getting 1 stars off them for my trouble.

Try high velocity out of the Springfield, that might work. I think slugs out of shotguns will get perfect pelts if you hit 'em in the head, too.

Failing that, poison arrows

I mean I shot a grizzly in the face twice with the Springfield using express rounds so IDK what the gently caress. But I have notable bad luck with poo poo like that regardless of game.

Express ammo is basically hollow points, I'd give high velocity poo poo a spin. Springfield is fun, but I hope we get a Sharps at some point. And the Navy revolver needs to be added to single player

I too touched the poop that is Tom Clancy's Breakpoint when it was on sale. I'm almost two hours in, some thoughts:

loving drat this game is pretty.
Oof this voice acting tho
lmao some NPC actually said FEELIN' FROGGY
Games need to stop having inertia in 3rd person movement, it always feels like weird lag
Death 2 tired loot and arbitrary score numbers
I'm already getting Assassin's Creed Odyssey vibes by being overwhelmed with all the drat Stuff In The World to do

First kill: I shot a dude in the head and he died yay headshots, lmao why did he blast 30 feet off the ground

Also I blew up some nerds with a grenade and one of them was all OH MY GOD THEY GOT CHAD, CHAD TALK TO ME BUDDY, I then shot him in the mouth and the last dude ran into my karambit with his neck

I'm glad I got this on sale cause holy moly $60 for this? Nah chief

Breakpoint update:

I'm liking this more than I thought I would, currently my biggest gripes are:

Sweet gently caress there's too much crap going on with all the missions I keep stumbling upon, I'm getting AC Odyssey flashbacks with Too Much Game
The movement is clunky as poo poo and I don't know why Ubi felt they had to change it from Wildlands

I got ran over by a train that I heard at the last minute because the Bezos style bozo that runs the island for his high tech hyperworld 2.0 didn't think trains should have horns

Also there are terminators

Breakpoint does a good job of flipping the script and giving the enemies the technology, especially air surveillance. I can remember really hating the open plains of certain regions because where the hell am I going to hide if a drone comes over head.

I was sorry to hear Aikon didn't like it, I think it's a great solo stealth shooter. I also think the movement animations are some of the most detailed I've seen, like when you're watching your character's stride change as they pass through a body of water.

On a whim I cracked a .50 at one of those spy drones last night and it sure crashed good, too bad I couldn't find it afterwards cause I bet there's some dope rear end crafting components on those things. And yeah it's a great stealth solo shooter, which is mostly how I played Wildlands. The animations are great, it's just moving around feels janky sometimes. Especially when you're trying to hide around a corner and climb stuff, it's nowhere near as snappy as Wildlands was.

5er posted:

I'm holding out for Ubi to try to turn the boat around on Breakpoint. Patch whatever's legitimately glitchy, maybe shift more of the micropayment content into game-based unlockable in response to the reviews/public opinion, and then ultimately I can scoop the game on a very agreeable holiday sale price.

Honestly I don't see the problem with these microtransactions as there's nothing worth buying, unless you really wanna go hard into dressup I guess? Although I hear Ubi released a lot of crap for free from a previous event as poo poo was bugged out hard or straight up unattainable.

It's dumb the round sunglasses are 100k Auroraland Funbucks though, I'm hovering at 50k just from looting crates and bodies

It's not intended to be a mass product at this point.

I mean, rural internet being poo poo is kind of a whole thing and we could go off on a giant tangent about why that's bullshit etc. That said, the reality is that if a company can be profitable selling a service only to people in NYC, Seattle, SF, other major metro areas, etc. then they will. From their standpoint the fact that someone in rural Wyoming won't be able to purchase it isn't ideal, but if they can make money selling it to Manhattan then they will.

Note that this is exactly how cellphones rolled out in the 90s. Once you get past the giant Miami Vice / Wall Street backpack phones of the 80s you see usable cell phone service crop up in cities way, way before it was workable in rural areas. A guy in a farm house still needing a landline didn't mean that ATT wasn't going to make a buck selling to cities.

What's really wild about this is I think it was Polygon in Seattle was testing Stadia with their big dick gigabit connection. Press key to jump, nearly two seconds later their character jumped.

On gigabit internet.

I had a problem with Doom 2016 that I'm almost 100% sure is Just Me.

Sometimes, the next place to go wasn't obvious. Like, walking around for a couple of minutes to find where to go next was obnoxiously momentum-breaking to the point where I put the game down and didn't go back to it after the first couple of levels.

How do I fix this? Pay more attention?
