We've had a few decent chats at home over recent weeks about how we love finding querky places to go but we think we'd love it even more if we potentially looked into a motorhome of some kind that we could travel around the UK with. I'm not think Campervan style as per the likes of @Stretch616 and @G_dub52 , fair props to them as I don't think I have the knack of doing the work on something like this and we'd probably want to push for something slightly bigger and in a finished kind of condition. I'm just wondering what types of motorhomes work well, decently priced, and the more practical elements we should look out for. I'd love for an FG camping meet up one day, I think my only worry is about driving something that big for a change! What out there? Anyone else tempted by the Motorhome ideas, especially how Covid has impacted our lives?
First on solo I had no idea what I was doing. Second night on with @phil bottle and it is brilliant fun. Got shot of a cannon, drank grog and got sick. Then put in a bucket and then chucked it over Phil. Twas hilarious. Did some voyages (quests/missions) to kill some skeletons and then had to find the right island for some treasure. Dug it up and brought it home for to collect our gold. Did well not to run into any other scurvy crew so maybe next time will go out searching for the big ships and see if we can take them on. I can see already where the initial criticism has come to the game about content but I don't think it's made to grind for 7 hours a day to to do the voyages as quick as you can. It's a real relaxing game to play and sailing on the seas looks great. As the ships have a few things going on, it really makes a significant difference if you play in a party. Playing solo I think you'll struggle to enjoy the game as you get some reward out of taking roles such as lookout or checking the map whilst others sail the ship and another changes the speed of and direction of your sail. I wouldn't say its worth the full £50 from an objective viewpoint, however for the FG value of playing with people here i'm definitely thinking it was still a good purchase. Looking forward to trying crossplay at some point with a few of Xbox people to see how that runs. Oh, and being able to play musical instruments together is hilarious. Definitely grabbing a beer or 7 when we go sailing again.
In this thread I would like to post a counter point to most of the things I am reading about Bethesda no longer sending early review copies to media outlets. I don't want to hijack the other thread, so I left my one comment and I am out. I thought I would post my more complete thoughts here. My Two Points: 1. This shouldn't really matter to gamers. 2. This is actually better for gamers in the long run. 1. So this really shouldn't matter to gamers. I know we all want the game on opening day, because we are hyped, but if we are really concerned about the quality of the game DESPITE your hype, then we should be able to wait a few days for reviews. That is... if you actually care about the reviews. How many games prior to this have had reviews prior to launch and still launch crappy? A lot. How many games over the years have we pre-ordered over and over again just to have piss poor launches? We as gamers have shown in the past by spending our money on pre-orders and day one purchases that we in fact don't care about the reviews anyway. (Bethesda mentions this round about in their post as well) Most people who pick up the game on day one, preordered. And pretty much ALL those pre-orders were made LONG before any reviews of the game were done. So anyone really impacted by this, didn't really care about the reviews anyway. 2. How is this better for gamers? If this somehow motivates people to stop preordering, and motivates people to wait a few days for reviews then companies who release crappy games (even if only at launch) will learn. We get a better product, we get burned less, and game companies have to be more honest at launch. Furthermore, we would probably get more initial content in the form of demos/betas early access etc because they would want people to "try before you buy" to SHOW how good their game is, and that it deserves a pre-order. Or we will just get better pre-order incentives. Bottom line, for this post, is that no one NEEDS to have the game opening day, if quality is your primary concern. I feel this is a knee-jerk #trigger by most people. We are not entitled to early reviews, we have just become used to it, because it has been a thing. I would be interested to see if anyone has an argument on why we DESERVE early reviews (early being the key word, reviews are great).
