Middle-Earth: Shadow of War

Honestly, I don't think I'm going to bother finishing this. It's not that it's bad. It's just so repetitive. After taking down my first fortress, the world opened up and there were I think half a dozen more. And all with the same side stuff and collectables in each area. And I thought to myself, "Ugh. This game is fine, but it's not fun enough to plow through all of that." The gameplay just isn't varied enough and traveling around isn't really all that fun. At least with sandbox games like Batman or Spider-Man, the manner of traveling is fun and the gadgets and moves are wide enough that combat rarely feels repetitive.

The various orc personalities almost makes me consider continuing on, but it's so repetitive, I don't think I'll bother.

Steam itttttttt

Watching Terrik play Beat Saber is actually kind of impressive.
I've already beaten his high scores for some songs. But I get really perfectionist sometimes when I've already cleared a song once, and I can't imagine it's fun to watch me restart my game over and over again until I finally suck it the fuck up and just play through it. :p

Please, I wasn't even trying.

On a side note, I might stream some of my classmates doing this later.

I uploaded a video of my best run on K/DA - Pop Stars, I'm really irritated that i keep totally fucking up at the end, but it's pretty good for my third day of playing.

I am still loving the hell out of Battletech, though I took a hard mission and got my ass kicked, then bought an expensive component that will be very helpful, but also means I now have less than 2 months worth of C-Bills in the war chest, and the main character is out of action for at least 3 months and am down a couple of mechs.

I know Officer Charon, Dave, and Caleb all have it. At some point we should try and do some PVP. I'm still getting the hang of it but it should at least be moderately entertaining.

So I'm playing Subnautica, and I'm loving a lot of it, but there is one issue. I'm someone who squeaks out an hour or two every few days, and the leisurely pace required to explore and whatnot is a bit trying for me. It hasn't stopped me, but now that the messages have stopped and I don't really have anywhere to go, I'm getting stuck a bit and spending an hour finding where the magnetite is kept is rough. I'm going to build another scanner at the southern end of the ship to see if I missed any major wrecks, but I'm getting a bit stuck for sure.

I find it interesting that you say that, because I hear him clear through my oculus headset...
Maybe it's just an OBS thing then, because on his stream, when he's using his headset, it's bizarrely muffled. Maybe OBS is still trying to use his regular mic.

That requires me to record myself with a green screen and edit my videos, and I don't have that much ambition right now.

You've attempted the rendezvous with the Sunbeam, right?

Here's my last beat saber video for a while since I'm spending the next few days in the mountains. I moved the camera and put an appropriate avatar in.

Yep. Did some building exploration, built a nice little base and a Seamoth. Just kind of slowing down now.
Yeah, you've reached the point where the game takes off the training wheels. You won't get many (or possibly any) convenient map markers to destinations now. Further progress in the storyline will have to depend on your own initiative and explorations.

I asked about the Sunbeam specifically, though, because you can get a data download from one of the terminals in the giant gun, which gives you a hint of where your next objectives are. If you're not averse to being spoiled...

You're probably going to want to head to the Lost River next, where the Disease Research Facility is located.

Oh, and magnetite is quite common in the Jellyshroom Caves. (The subterranean biome with bright purple mushrooms and giant snakes.)

So there I was, happily on my second modded playthrough of Skyrim SE, when things started severely bugging out. I got CTDs quite a lot more than I used to, Frostfall became half broken, framerate start dropping... all that jazz.

I managed to get it mostly working again by removing Frostfall, but... well... I've gotten so used to playing Skyrim with Frostfall that it now feels like a major part of the game's gameplay is missing. It'd be like if thu'um were removed from the game. I doubt I'm going to feel motivated to continue playing much more.

I get to work this morning and realize I forgot to STOP streaming! Fuck!
Given I don't watch streams very often, I was confused when browsing this morning and seeing that somebody was streaming. Now I have my explanation.
