    Immersive sims are few and far in between, considering how difficult it is to make them. And the genre's bleeding titles too: the shock series is all but a linear shootfest now, and Thi4f is a...

    Ah. Rogue assassin, solo. Killed the Highland Ravager in 25 seconds, three other dragons in under 20 seconds each. Zero damage taken. Next to an archer/artificer rogue, easily the most OP build.

    Only the major cities (Kingston, Havana, two others I can't remember) were "gated". Everything else: the little isles and atolls, the fishing communities, the forts, etc were open to approach.

    What it says. The ones that survive hardware upgrades, crashes and spring cleaning. The fixtures that, when Windows says you're running out of disk space, you do not even consider uninstalling.
