    Gaming/Workspace Show & Tell!!

    Over in Discord, @phil bottle suggested we start up a thread to share how we game and work.

    What do you do?

    ONLY GONE AND GOT THE FUCKING JOB BOYSSSSSSS!! Just had a call saying they'd like to offer me the job. They said am I sure I want it as its a big pay cut from what I'm currently on and I said yes 100%, as I want to get into IT. My mate who works there said struggle for a year and then after that you have the qualifications and you can work your way up, which I totally agree with. My girlfriend is very understanding also, as this means I won't be able to save for a house for a year, but says my happiness comes first So happy! They just need to contact my references which should be fine, then wait for a formal job offer letter, by which I can then hand in my notice and start my 1 month period before leaving. So chuffed!!

    Back to the FGFGF grind! It has been a while since we've had to dig deep to send a few parcels. We'd love to do some on a regular basis but clearly that all depends on you lovely people helping to donate what you can to make some people Feel Good. However, the good news is that we managed to save enough up for a few parcels to go out in the last few days and we have a few more coming out in the coming weeks. Stay tuned for those. In the meantime, the parcels that hit their doorstep this week were for good old @Stretch616 and @ChaosGladiator. They are now both proud owners of a 1TB external hard drive and now therefore have no excuses for not having a game fully updated. I'd love to get some more done, in the UK and on an International basis, so I want to hear some more ideas from all of you on some people that really deserve a Feel Good moment, whether they have had issues or not, it does not matter. The aim is to keep giving Feel Good moments out as much as we can from the best place in the world. Thanks to the few that have donated over recent months, it really is the only way we can keep doing these awesome Feel Good moments happening. GGFG all

    Hi guys as a few of you may know my gaming life isnt my only joy.

    Gaming/Workspace Show & Tell!!

    Nice one @Shucker so sweet to have a projector, I have borrowed one from work occasionally. I'll add photos to my set up when the light is a bit better but I'll start with the specs etc. Console I still have my Xbox 360 hooked up, but to the TV in the bedroom and rarely use it now even for Netflix etc as it's only 720p. I have Red Read Redemption (not the new one of course) installed and that game still looks great now. PS4 (1TB) is hooked up to a 55 inch 4K Samsung TV in the 'living room' . My Steam device is also hooked up this TV. Thinking of replacing the PS4 with a Pro, as there's a lot more UHD content available online these days. PC PC is also in the living room, sitting in the corner by the window. CPU: Intel i7 8700k GPU: Nvidia MSI GTX 1080ti Mobo: Asus ROG Strix Z390 RAM: Kingston HyperX Predator 3200 16GB Storage: Samsung 970 Evo Plus (1TB), 850 EVO (500GB), 840 (250GB). The first is M.2, the rest are standard SSDs. Cooling: Corsair H100i Pro Power: Corsair RM1000x Headset: Astro A50s Keyboard: Corsair K95 Platinum RGB Cherry MX Mouse: Logitech G400 I replaced most of my PC a couple of months ago and all that's left from the original is the mouse and 840 SSD (both from 2012). Though the GPU is from around November.

    Xbox 'Project Scarlett'

    It's going to be insanely expensive for a very long time, plus i'd rather have my frames if i'm honest. You can buy an 65" 8k Samsung tv for just under £3000 but what's the point, you wouldn't want to play games on something that big. If it's anything smaller then it completely defeats the point of having 8k....not that there is any point of having 8k. Destiny was hard enough to play on the PS at times, never thought i'd see a console struggle so badly for frames. They should take baby steps and stop trying to do the long jump.

    New Windows Xbox App

    I can't even download games from the store anymore. Before E3 I had started Imperator: Rome downloading but paused it so my stream wouldn't lag. Next day I go to resume the download and now I can't download anything from the store, I can't even download the new Xbox App. EDIT: fixed now, I needed to clear my store cache. Anyone with the same issues, just do method 3 here: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-windows_store/microsoft-store-something-happened-on-our-end-try/24344bab-aef8-4091-a200-9f30fafd93e5?auth=1

    I honestly think as long as they keep it basic and focus on creating good quality maps and a good variety of useable weapons so that it is literally gun on gun action, bringing it back to what CoD used to be, then the vast majority of people will be happy. I am a heavy CoD player but I’m tired of this specialist nonsense with weapons and abilities that ruin the flow of the game. If I run into someone round the corner I want to Have a gun battle to determine the victor of the engagement, not have him leap 20ft in the air with his megadeath jackhammer of arsefuckery kill all team mates in the 6mile radius it covers.

    Nice idea for a thread, I’ll post a pic tomorrow as it’s too dark now. Consoles PS4 - An OG 500Gb. A hdd drive upgrade is still on the list but I kinda feel if I made it this long then I can make it until the PS5.

Also you'll have to excuse the mess, I'm in the middle* of sorting a load of stuff out hence the dvd's and games being everywhere, pops on the floor, boxes of stuff reflected in the tv. (*by middle I mean I got halfway through sorting out and moved on to doing other things. I'll finish one day....maybe )

    I hope this is a return to form for COD. I do like the series but it's gone way downhill since BO3 (the last decent COD). Chances are Activison will fuck it up. They always do. They always go full retard. No mention of the F2P bit that is supposedly coming.

    I've gone from "couldn't give a fuck" because of Blops 4, to "you have my attention". Apparently the game looks stunning because of the new engine. Campaign is supposed to be realistic and really quite brutal. It honestly depends on what they do with MP. All maps are going to be free. If all the in game purchases are cosmetic only then I'm fine with that. Via the FG App

    Hi all, been on FG a couple of months now and realised I hadn’t done an intro. My bad. Im a UK PS4 player who mainly plays Destiny 2 usually with Adamf1007 and Bluffin109. Already ive met a few awesome members on here that have been welcoming and have helped me with quests I’ve been struggling with so for that I’m grateful. Hopefully play alongside more of you guys too on raids etc. Thanks to Lee, Rob, Kempy for helping out and Adam and Dave for recommending to join. Cheers Clive

    Sledgehammer and Raven have both removed as the main developers of COD 2020 and relegated to a support role. Treyarch have been appointed to lead the project and now have to scramble together another rushed game and dress it up as BO5 as they take charge of development https://kotaku.com/sources-call-of-duty-2020-in-upheaval-as-treyarch-take-1834858368/amp whilst then also working on COD 2021 for release the following year which will probably be Black Ops 6! Basically Treyarch have two years to make two games. This could quite possibly be the biggest embarrassment the franchise has ever faced. Black Ops 4 was already one game too many in the series and now we’re gonna be getting a rushed sequel with 5 plastered on it. I haven’t seen anything like it and Treyarch are going to be stretched beyond belief. The Black Ops brand is just a tag now for the latest generic game to be called and about an unimaginative as it gets. Black Ops 4 was bad enough in terms of being rushed, lacking content and having now forwarding strategy on content and community engagement so I dread to think how Black Ops 5 is going to turn out let alone 'Black Ops 6' a year later. Just shows that Activision cannot afford to take a year off. I can see what's left of Sledgehammer and Raven being merged or disbanded and then just having two primary developers IW and 3arc like the old days left. Not exactly a glowing future this series has going into an exciting new gen.

    I will never ever use the Epic Store ever. It has less features than Steam did over a decade ago. Fuck all those developers/publishers that sold themselves out for what is essentially Fornite money backhanders. Any company willing to lose sales for the sake of receiving a lump sum up front deserves nothing. Now devs/pubs are beginning to stab their own backers in the back like the Shenmue 3 saga. Epic have moved into this domain so they can keep their company floated highly on the stock market. Once Fortnite money starts drying up, shares prices go down, company value plummets and shares get sold off cheap, so Epic need something to retain their high valuation so the share prices and overall value of the company doesn't decline. The Epic Store and launcher is merely an overnight knee-jerk feature designed solely for this purpose dressed up to pretend it's onside with publishers, developers and gamers. If a game is available elsewhere, I'll buy there or not at all. Steam is the market leader - it may have a higher percentage cut per product sold but the size of the customer base and the amount of features for the sake of a $100 publication fee is quite astonishing for developers and publishers. It's a great platform for gamers with a great UI, community elements, the workshop and with sales. It is the only one to have a fixed refund policy in place. uPlay has also improved massively in recent years with most past problems non-existent. Origin is pretty bad in terms of the interface but they do have some exclusive franchises in there which are popular so if you just wanted to play those, it's worth suffering. Origin Access is also excellent value if you are interested in a handful of EA games. Unlike Steam, you're not going to be spending too much time on there not playing games. As long as it doesn't become one launcher per major publisher, I'm happy to use a handful of established and proven ones. Bethesda already tried it, failed and have come crawling back to Steam and Epic have fucked off a few of their business associates with has seen products been removed. Ideally, I'd prefer to have my games in one place and Steam is ultimately the best across the board which is why Bethesda are back, Bungie are en route and Microsoft are joining the fray along with a few others. Epic can continue to give away as many games as they wish for free but you cannot trump experience, market presence, features and quality that other proven launchers have.

    Xbox 'Project Scarlett'

    People don't realise that this 8K they're banding around will cost them $$$$ but they may never get to see it in action plus it will slice their framerates. PS4 couldn't even handle 60fps at 1080p in 99% of its games and the Xbox One struggled to hit 1080p in many bog-standard AAA ones so this is a huge leap and total overkill to see who has the biggest penis in the market. Both MS and Sony should really remain grounded and focus on 4K 60fps next gen. I don't think there's any reason for MS to release another system when the 1X has been neglected and is still OTT for console gaming right now. 8K native wont be until 2028 I bet.

    MW Remastered FG Party Megathread

    So last night was unexpected and hilarious as always. I won a game so it must've been a top night One gun game I think everyone started to just knife everybody to make them go back a step. Biron knifed me 3 times in about 20 seconds the little Yorkshire bellend. I think everytime we started shotguns only or snipers only on Shipment it took about 10 seconds for rules to be out the window - airstrikes and helicopters bloody everywhere. Not to mention all friggin smoke grenades FML (I will punch you in the balls and winky next time Stretch for most of those). Ace to see Harold and Dan turn up too. Told you they were worth it, although Dan turned up when most of us were pissed and falling asleep in the chair so i'm glad he brought his A-game to carry Didds' waste of space, er, i mean our waste of space team at the end of the night. So much for one last game 6 matches later. I was just staying for Gary's pissed as a fart entertainment And after sleeping on it, you're right Greeboth. Gayboth doesn't suit you at all because it doesn't sound like cunt enough. Next week is our first FGer Game Choice by @Misneach_ to play BO4 custom games so get the damn thing updated all. You have a whole week you bastards. GGFG everyone. @Diddums @Stretch616 @techno @Shucker @Spacedeck @MrBiron @Chookes @Greboth @Dan94

    DayZ PS4 first impressions.

    Ok so it's finally on ps4,some good points some bad. So far servers have been solid no teleporting zoms or invisible players. Loot spawns are renewed with every server restart and the melee combat isn't as rough as I thought it would be. Now on to the bad . . . . . The inventory management and overall equipping/repairing is pretty clumsy but I'm sure with some feed back it will become more refined. Some textures take a little while to render in such as trees and bushes but all other AI based models don't which isn't to big of a deal but it is still one. Gameplay when you get used to the controls isn't actually all too bad though typical dayz slow paced it still has some tense moments along with some utterly dull ( hiding when it's pitch outside). All in all I think they have done not to bad of a job with it although I still think that £40 is a little rich but hey who needs furniture anyway. Via the FG App

    Head says Liverpool, heart says Spurs. I don't believe in "the stars aligning" or fate etc... but like Jenas said in the Ajax game, so many things have gone Spurs' way this season in the CL, it wouldn't surprise me if we did pull it off. Getting out of the group of death after just 1 point Getting a draw at Barca to go through Beating Dortmund (who were top of the Bundasliga at the time) Beating the favourites Man City (inc the whole VAR drama) Coming from behind against Ajax with Lloris pulling off some amazing saves and them hitting the post before we grabbed the important third Just maybe we can do it...
