    I swear every teammate in Rocket League has a personal quest to constantly ride my ass up and down the field. Learn about rotation and positioning fool, stop crowding me and messing up my hits!

    You gotta hit that par time. If I remember right, the game gives different after mission text depending on whether or not you finished within the par time.

    Yeah this seems to be the general impression I'm getting. I.e. that GTA5 online is pretty much the most fun you can have online if played with the right people. But equally lame if played with the wrong people. I'll stick to the story mode for now.

    Playing Witcher 3 NG+ on Death March has made me extremely good at the dodge/slash/roll combat in that game. It is infuriating at first, but once you are good at it it is super fun to run circles around several enemies which can kill you in 3 hits.

    Finished my playthrough of the GDI campaign of Command & Conquer (you all should totes check it out in the link in my sig wink, wink, wink). I'm taking a break from C&C though, and I'm thinking about doing a few videos with actual commentary. So I'm thinking of a nice laid back game where I can easily talk without having to focus too hard on playing the game. I'm thinking either an FPS or a turn-based strategy game.

    Any suggestions?

    That is on the short list of games I was considering.

    Anyone second the motion for Civ5?

    What type of game is it?

    Besides Civ5 I am considering Shattered Union, Civ BE, Starships, Starship Troopers, Homefront, and Warhammer 40k Armageddon.

    I used to play a game on DOS/Win95 that was a lot like that Rocket League game, 20ish years ago. It was shareware, I remember.

    Now, remembering those times: As you may have heard, I'm playing Fallout again. Not the new ones, but the very original one from '97. It was just to see whether WiNE worked properly but I got hooked. Bloody hell, that game holds up after 20 years. There's so many others I haven't ever bothered to play again…

    Oh, dude, Shattered Union is a game I played a lot as a kid. Definitely didn't age too well, tbh, but I still have fond memories since I thought it was the absulote bomb being able to wage war in and around Albany and places I knew.

    I'd love to see you do a Lets Play of that, if you did it as New England Alluance ;)

    I don't know. I live in Cincinnati, which is Great Plains Federation territory. I don't know if I could go against my peeps.

    Although, I do love the New England Alliance's unique tank, the FCS Bragg I think, so that might tempt me.
