Must be a driver issue on my part then. Using a GTX 1070 on v388.13. Gotta be that 13 in the build number

I think you're exaggerating a little on the difficulty in Far Cry. It's hard, but it isn't that hard, at least not in my opinion.
Well, I thought it was balls hard at times. Though the AI could be stupid as a wall, walking right up to a doorway you're crouching behind, waiting to get shot after seeing 2 of his buddies killed before him, they could also be sneaky little shits. The Rebellion level had me re-playing it more times than I've ever played a lvl in an FPS before. Try playing that lvl these days. Maybe our twitch reflexes aren't as sharp as they were 15 years ago, tho I have no trouble with Doom wads. Go figure.

Um, it wasn't a review just couple of QUICK observations, Mr. Potato Head. Yikes. Have a glass of chill and a bran muffin there for that IBS before you bust, bro.

But I have played both games to completion; actually I have played far cry to completion several times (3, 4, 5); though frequently i just do my favorite maps (boat for example). crysis - been a while since i played it - i should probably replay it just to refresh my memory why i found it to be such a bore.

If you only played 'a few minutes' of Crysis, you are what is essentially the tutorial … and sorry to be blunt, but this is the third time this week I have seen different takes on this in different threads/forums … and I am frankly completely fucking sick of it.

"I have played far cry to completion several times (3, 4, 5)" How was Far Cry 2? Fans seem very divided about it, some claiming it's the best in the series, others saying the absolute worst.

I thought far cry 2 sucked rotten eggs (well worse than rotten eggs). Basically you go in a circle and every 2 seconds everything regens at the intersections. Stupidest design ever (well actually not recent games have shown you can do worse). I thought it would be an improved version of far cry because well it was far cry 2; sadly i didn't listen to the rumours that said it was ubishit using the name far cry. I think it was that game that started me down the path of referring to all things ubi as ubishit even though child of light was fantastic.

A crying shame since I don't think there is a better potential location for the Far Cry series than Africa. Sure beats Montana. First Far Cry I played was 4 then 3 then realized 4 was a re-skinning of 3 but I enjoyed them both immensely. Far Cry 3 actually had the most memorable C&C moment for me in all my gaming, in the end. I chose not to rescue my friends but went for easy sex with the female baddie of the game. And the consequences of that were, um, memorable, to say the least. Well, at least I died with a grin.

I am playing through Elex finally and I am really enjoying it. It feels very close to the Gothics and I do not mind the somewhat futuristic aspects of the game.

I really think that fan-theory about Magalan being a pre-cursor to the Gothic world very apt and interesting too. I think there are many things that could have been done better, but I haven't had many games engross me as much in a long time. I have been playing from 19.00 to 00.00 today non-stop.

I had a few really fun quests pop up too:

Still playing Hero-U Rogue, and having a good time with it. I'm up to day twenty-one, and I'm sure I've missed many quests/puzzles so far, but have quite a few cleared under my belt. This is a product that I can see replaying a few times again in the future, just to explore things I totally missed the first time around.

New weapons and new outfits.

Be carefull to not upgrade the new weapons types when one of the units eqipped with it is doing covert operation, there's a bug: the new weapons won't upgrade and will disapear of your game instead…

I think there is also suppose to be new maps; but maybe not. Anyway i find it to be a fun game and even if I don't notice a difference it will still be a good romp. Then hopefully enough patches will have arrived to finish divinity sin 2 definitive edition (dos-2 de ?)

There's new assets for the random mission maps but no new custom maps, sadly.

Oh well could hope. At least those tactical missions have me interested in what they do for xcom 3. As a collection they were short but I still found them a lot of fun - esp neither knowing the map in advance nor being able to save scum (something i tend to do from time to time). Manage to do them all without anyone dying (so yea they aren't that hard) but it was close a few times.

Yeah, wasn't that hard (didn't lose anybody either, silver ranks for all missions) but as you said, the maps are interesting and fun.
Maybe less random maps is what the serie needs fo XCOM3.

I am playing The Precursors right now. It is a fun game. The quests aren't all that deep, but there is a variety of them. (They're not all "Fetch 11 lizard testicles.")

I finished most side-quests on Goldin, and am just now starting space exploration.

It's got that wacky Rrussian mod vibe bursting with enthusiasm & great ideas about it that I love. Tries to do everything under the sun. I played the FPS beginning section and it was great. You know a game is gonna be good when it starts off playing like a AAA title does only in the much later, wilder stages of the game. I should give it a go.

I do not like the space combat much. It's hard to navigate, and there are not enough hotkeys.

I never reached that part of the game but are you using keyboard, flightstick/joypad or game controller for navigating? The latter two are generally much preferred to keyboard in flight sims. Sometimes good analogue control is everything in these games, something a keyboard simply cannot provide.

Ah, Far Cry and Crysis. I remember seeing and playing Far Cry for the first time when it came out and it blew my mind. I was 13 then and it was the best looking game with the best AI I've seen. I ought to replay it some time.
Crysis I didn't play until recently since at the time it came out, my PC wasn't up to the task, and I played less games. It still looks great 10 years after release, better than some newer games. I don't know about performance, but I wasn't able to keep it above 60fps at all times on my 1060. I don't know whether it is CPU bound, it is a driver issue, or the game is simply still too demanding for 1060, but now that I have the urge to replay it, I'll try that windowed trick.
