A small humblebrag about the end of a successful PUBG game last night

*round ends, we win*

Me: "Right so, how many kills each?"
Squad Member 1: "None"
Squad Member 2: "One"
Squad Member 3: "Zip. How many for you Sharky?"
Me: "Just nine this time"

I became obsessed with XCOM 2 in January after spending a week off work with the gastro. What mods are you running it with?

Very nice! How are you going to go about constructing a more permanent housing for it?

I used "Evac All", "No Avatar Project" and "Shepard Voicepack" back when I was playing XCOM 2.

Evac all lets you extract every soldier in the evac zone with a single click.

No Avatar Project lets you either never have the Avatar Project start (I don't recommend doing that) or if you enable it after the Avatar Project is started the timer will not increase allowing you to have fun killing aliens without constantly worrying about the Avatar Projects timer.

And the Shepard Voicepack is a pretty good voice pack of the male and female Commander Shepards from the Mass Effect trilogy. I have Femshep in my squad shooting aliens with her shotgun.

Thanks, the housing is pretty much there. I just need to find plates to secure the speakers, button panel and wires. That's it.

Anyone playing Battlefront II (the new one)? I want to know what the games like now that the progression system has been changed to remove the pay to win elements.

If people say it's a good game with the changes I might grab it since it's only $35 on Origin.

Didnít touch online, I paid $39 for it on release, thoroughly enjoyed he story and time challenges but I spent a good 12 hours with it and found it worth the money.

Iív clocked about 85 hours on Battlefront 2.

Itís a great shooter set in the Star Wars universe. The graphics and sound are top notch.

The change in progression system is much welcomed. Levelling your characters through RNG was such a poor decision.

The game still suffers from team balancing issues. There is no auto scramble after map changes and more often than not I see one team dominating over and over...not fun.

^ Wouldn't it be good if every developer and publisher announced when a game will be removed from digital services so you have a chance to buy it before it's gone forever.

Not this week, but probably when it inevitably goes on sale in a month or two. Ubisoft discounts their games fast.
