Face, thanks for the review about Cities: Skylines.

Too bad about all of the addons that are basically required.

Here is a link to the game, and addons, in steam:

Looks like if I want to play it I'll need a serious computer upgrade first, just to hit minimum specs.

Been playing Zelda Breath of the Wild on Switch
What a game
I am fully addicted
Cant wait to play tonight
The world to explore in this game is huge and I have barely scratched the surface
One of the most fun video games I have ever played


Well, duh.

I grew up a Sega kid. Master System, Genesis, too poor for Saturn, then to PS1, PS2, and then Microsoft ever since. Was never a Nintendo kid and spent all of my childhood as a Nintendo hater to play my part for the console wars. But I have played it. And many Zeldas. And I dare you to find one that was mediocre, or a score from another game that was more perfect.

I haven't played a Zelda since Link to the Past ('94?). But some of the modern stuff, like Ocarina of Time? So good I've watched it be played through. Twice. And the main theme never fails to give me chills. That's powerful stuff, right there.

You're welcome, Dalex64. I agree about the add-ons, but that's modern gaming. At least there are Steam sales for relief, but my already Spartan buying has become even more so, as I'm dropping / have dropped out of ones that use predatory tactics. Pay to win, lootboxes, early access, et al.

And sorry about that omission. Ever since getting a good rig, I've completely forgotten anything to do with requirements =/
Be bold and risk defeat, or be cautious and encourage it.

That was pretty great music Face, and completely new to me! I think I missed something, not playing any of the Zelda series. I go back alllll the way to before video games, had more than a few, like the original ZorK and stuff like that, and really enjoyed them. But somehow went right past Zelda. Thanks!

I stayed up all night last Saturday watching the finale of AGDQ 2018 which was a BotW all main quests speed run. These guys are amazing!

I watched some of this
A lot of good advice
I personally really take my time in this game doing a lot of exploring

I'm the same way. I prefer clearing RPG type games 100%. This one though will take you 6 months to a year at a casual pace!

I finished the beginning part of the game, the great Plateau. So only watched that part of the video. It was interesting in that the player got to 1 shrine in a completely different way then I did. I like to be pleasantly surprised so stopped watching.

Any good advice you can suggest?
I always make sure I have an axe to make sure I have access to firewood if I run out.
I chop down trees, make firewood and light it with a fire arrow
I never travel at night anymore. Too dangerous. I make a campfire and travel in the morning

I haven't played it. Only watched it on YouTube or Twitch.
