# 259 “Pulling Out of Nvidia”

This week we discuss;

Play Lists

Jim

  • CODMW, WoW Retail
  • New Keyboard (Corsair k95XT) to replace my logitech g910 because I hate roamer-g switches.  

Logun – God Of War (I need to put some notes in here else I’ll mis a bunch of stuff)

  • Released 2018 on PS4
  • Game of the year for 2018
  • Smooth transition with cut scenes.
  • Complex armour and Weapons – difficult to decide what to craft and upgrade.
  • Good character development albeit SUPER weird at times
    • Game does an insanely good job of explaining why it’s so weird at times though
  • Playing on easy mode to enjoy the story. 
  • One chapter runs long and seems to have been put in just to make the game longer
  • Combat is fucky. Either I super suck at games now or shit’s getting way complex – multiple weapons, multiple moves with multiple weapons against a variety of opponents. PLUS controlling Atreus (your son) in combat.
  • Multiple options on your loadout affects how you fight (Area, vs Melee, vs Line affect…)
  • Progression can force you to go back to older areas just for 100% completion (opening chests you couldn’t open the first time through)

Curls

  • Jedi Fallen Order
  • Destiny 2
  • New phone
