I wanna play it, but I don't wanna fork out literally $100NZD ($73USD) for it and I'm not sure it'll even work on my PC. So I'm contempt with the first one for now.

Is it much of an improvement on the first one or more of the same (not a bad thing) with just more story?

Ya know, I did read that you wrote that too but it went in one eyeball and out the other.
I should really stop skimming over your posts at 4am and read them more thoroughly.

It is harder, I find. Resource and time management are more important than in Enemy Unknown. They added a bunch of little changes that I think improve combat, especially the Concealment mechanic. Just watch out for te Ruler-class enemies. That's some bullshit right there.

Itthe game was on sale by a big margin.

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

Cool, I do enjoy a challenge. And yea I do often see it on sale, usually like 50% off or something. Tempted every time but the cheapness in me wins out every time. Tongue
140 games on steam and the most expensive one cost me $50 (Rome 2 Total War). Yet I happily sit next to a big pile of xbox games that probably cost me like $80NZD each. ><

Oh, hey, Bioware's ANTHEM on Playstation.

Except, it's not. Well, not this footage at least. This is the Xbox One X footage, with editing in post to overlay Playstaion buttons on screen.

Dafuq Sony, that is shady as all hell. That's not an 'oops, we didn't notice' sort of mistake. Video editing button overlays takes a bit of work.

Wanted to do the flatmate a solid, so I got him a copy of Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls for the PS4 after he appeared interested in watching me play the PC version, and he's been enjoying it. Now I am probably going to pick up my own PS4 controller so we can play couch co-op, now that SONY has also released PC driver support for them. Should be a fun Sunday ritual.
