So the new gaming laptop arrives tomorrow (when the wife says get a laptop now and build a rig after the new CPU’s and GPU’s are released you don’t argue). I’ve been on my midtier gaming laptop for the last 6 years, so it’s definitely behind the times and my gaming has reflected that.
Probably the last AAA mainstream title I picked up was Dishonored 2. What are everyone’s must plays from the last couple of years? I’ll play pretty much everything except sports titles (that’s what the console is for).
Kingdom Come: Deliverance looks good, I need to get the new Mount and Blade as well. I was a supporter of the original back in the olden days. Dying Light I’ll take under advisement I’m not a huge horror game player, but if it’s got a STALKER or Metro vibe I’d be down. Innocence: A Plague Tale honestly looked to be more depressing than entertaining, but if you guys say it’s good I’ll short list it. Fallen Order looked good, and man I haven’t played a Tomb Raider game since the N64.
I never did finish the original XCom, I should do that. And BattleTech was fun until it got punitive in the later portions of the campaign. I kind of lost interest at that point.
I think I avoided that (not particularly intentionally) by doing a lot of random contracts between campaign missions…so I had a lance that was quite comfortable for the campaign missions by the time I got to them.
So if you’re keen to give it another whack I suggest doing contracts until you’ve got a few assault mechs and some ++/+++ weapons. Campaign life is a lot easier with more tonnage and skilled pilots.
I did most of the late campaign with 2 x Banshees (just what I got first - not a great assault mech on the numbers but has enough armour to push through most missions), a storyline Highlander and a Marauder. So what’s that…a 355 ton lance, I think. At that tonnage you’re the one providing the punitive treatment
Yeah I used a Catapult with stock LRMs to great effect, even better when I got some stability damage versions…often knocked the enemy’s heaviest mech down with them while the AC20/melee brawlers were sprinting up to him to wrap things up.
