Looks nice.. I'm interested. Is it just random killing or is there more to it?

It's co-op (up to 6 people) wave survival. You pick a class (Medic, Firebug, Berserker, Demolition, Sharpshooter, Gunslinger, Support, Commando, SWAT, Survivalist), you kill a wave full of zeds and earn dosh from your kills, you visit a trader between each wave to purchase upgrades, and each wave gets progressively harder as they throw more and harder zeds at you. Rinse and repeat until either your team wipes, or you reach the boss wave and defeat one of two random bosses (Patriarch or Hanz Volter). Also your kills earn you XP, allowing each class to level up, unlocking both small passive bonuses (+% damage per level, +% magazine capacity per level, etc.) and much larger perk bonuses (50% faster reloads, 20% faster sprinting, carry more ammo, etc.) every 5 levels.


Also, the game is gun porn. The weapons have an almost fetishistic level of attention to detail. The reload animation were motion captured by weapons experts, so reloading a pair of revolvers looks both legit and cool. Also the weapons are animated at 120 frames per second, so that wherever the game goes into slow motion bullet time (triggered when you do something cool, like head shots and blowing zeds up with explosives), you can see all of the detail. If you pay attention to the barrel on the assault riffles, you'll see it wobble slightly as it fires, just what it would look like if you recorded the weapon with a high speed camera. Basically the weapons look, sound, and feel powerful. The guns are fun to use, which is good, because that's what you do 99% of the time.


Plus the game runs impressively on PS4, keeping an almost locked 60 fps. Doesn't look quite as good as the PC, nor does it's frame rate get or stay as smooth, but it's an impressive port all the same.

I prefer foxgloves, high enough dosages can cause deaths. All you need to do is spike the victim's drink and within 2 hours.. closed chapter..

I'm kind of a film buff - I'll generally give most any genre a try. I am very attracted to films from all over the world and documentary.
Also, passing time for me, usually involves a puzzle of some sort. Whether it's reading a who-did-it mystery or working out composition & spacial issues in an art work, I find myself most comfortable (less bored) in being challenged. Shy

Amateurs?? I'll think you find that the above method is actually a sophisticated technique.

On topic, I love films. Being from India. We have a massive film obsession as a nation.. So I grew up watching English and Hindi films. as well as a couple of regional films.

RE: Killing Time
Yoga, meditation, going for a walk or run with my dogs, going to an art museum, playing on TTA, watching a movie, painting my nails, doing something for skin care- maybe a mud mask or something, cranking up the music and dancing like a lunatic around my house Hobo (not while wearing the mud mask though Wink )
