    Thoughts on fallout 4

    My issue with the FoV is it's much more adapted to consoles ( something like 55-60) doesn't work too well with PC screens - esp as I've a large screen quite close to me. I set it to 90, problem solved :D

    Thoughts on fallout 4

    I'm enjoying it - had to alter the default FoV and the FPS cap. My only major issue with it atm is the collision meshes are really quite terrible. Got stuck on wooden boxes etc a few times.

    "Returning to WWII" (game discussion)

    Oh I understand the idea of games having a role in learning, I did that for my university thesis. I just don't think a game that is primarily a form of entertainment would give justice to quite how serious the topic of the holocaust might be. A virtual teaching tool, absolutely something that...

    "Returning to WWII" (game discussion)

    Some interesting points they've drawn on here - however, most of them have been done in one way shape or form (just none of them in one single game). One point though has gotten me a little riled up :D. I'm aware of a few games that have touched on the idea of including/ paying homage to...

    I might have a chat with the lead producer, see if we can get some large scale battles set up so those joining us can experience the game at its best. Watch this space.

    Post some of your favorite songs here!

    I like to listen to a wide variety of things, but usually , if there's no bass or guitar to it - I'll give it a miss (there are exceptions to this rule! ) Here are my most played 4 as of this week: Muse- Reapers Lindemann - Yukon Procol Harum : Conquistador(live) And my nice happy...

    Any other WW II games?

    I worked for wwiionline for many years :D - the graphics are a limitation of the engine, which is ancient - seriously, I think it's held together with string and tape. I've played wwiiol for 9 years, was a player for 4 years before getting on board as an art intern. There's nothing like it...

    The Christmas Truce (Verdun)

    Perhaps a little cheeky for me to post this here but Verdun is a project I've helped contribute towards for a long while now. This year there will be an extended Christmas truce event, taking place between in game battles/skirmishes. While it's not necessarily 100% accurate in some aspects, it...

    What games are you playing?

    on and off Verdun - its interesting seeing how the ww1 warfare can be portrayed in an FPS. Some maps work - some less so ... but good fun :)
