Picked up Metro: Exodus.

Not going to lie, I'm shocked at how bad the dialogue and voice acting is. I was expecting something a bit 'grittier' considering the setting. Gunplay is passable at the moment but some of the animations are rough too. I'm hoping this game starts picking up. Not very impressed at the moment.

One of the most overrated series’ in gaming. It doesn’t pick up or look any better. The game was a PC benchmark, and that’s about it.

Are renovations backed up in the UK like they are in the U.S.? I put a down payment on a deck renovation. I’m having a roof with a fan and lights out over my existing trex deck back in February. They aren’t starting until August…. We also had a few pool companies come out and look into putting an in ground pool in. They’re all too busy to even give us a quote at this point. And the prices are like double what they were a couple years ago.

Consoles and GPUs aren’t the only things that are inflated and hard to come by.

I'm starting to get that feeling. If it's just graphics then I'm probably out 30 bucks.

@Bikouchu35: lol I've already played them. Just wanted a digital copy. I'm actually one of the few people who loved Yakuza 6. It's one of my favorites from the franchise.

Just the new Total War: Warhammer II DLC on July 9th.

Might get Cris Tales and/or Orcs Must Die 3 later in the month, but unlikely. They look like sale buys at best.

I suggest you also get the 2 expansions for it, they are worth it. Especially if they are also on sale and you plan to give the game an average amount of your time.

I picked up Mass Effect Legendary. Too busy with NBA 2K21 though.

I checked and it looks like it comes with everything lol (which was what I was hoping for!) I loved Civ 5 back in the day, was addicted to it. I got in on 6 at launch and it didn't jive with me. I'm hoping since then the game has improved significantly. Firaxis games seem to get better over time. And speaking of Firaxis, where's my XCOM 3?!

Nice, how would you rate it/compare to others? Was considering getting one. I like my PS5 headset, does it have similar features? Only thing is I don't like having multiple headsets.

@SolidGame_basic: Only gaming headset I have to compare it to is the Turtle Beach Stealth 600's that these are replacing and these are way better in terms of build quality and sound. The TB were pretty shit to be honest.

Not as nice as my Sony WH1000M3's but they're 3 times the price so you wouldn't expect them to be, but they won't connect wirelessly to the xbox.

Well worth £90.

Not too sure. I'm renovating my place in Canada, from sale of property in the UK... Though that property does need some repairs to the roof, so I hope it's not backed up.

Nice big deck and a pool? That'd be amazing. Construction material is getting nailed with inflation and difficulties in transportation. A new housing construction area by me, has taken the price sign down because material prices are going through the roof.

Nice. I just finished Death's Door. Solid 7/10. I recommend Hob as well if you haven't already played it.

the game just came out yesterday didn't it? I've been thinking about getting it also..GS gave it an 8, but you give it a 7. Are your standards higher or the game isn't that great?

I also gave Hob a 7. For reference.... Ori and the Blind Forest is an 8. Ori and the Will of the Wisps and Hollow Knight are 9. Remember, on a scale from 0-10, 7 is a good score.

Checked out Horizon Zero Dawn on PC. Was able to play on ultra settings in ultra wide at 1440p 30fps. Still pretty cool. This type of game is great for ultra wide.
