M.Ilič continues his career at FC Wolfsburg in first bundesliga,right now they're first but bayern is only 2 points behind,they are really crushing everything in their path. Hope we are at least third at the end of season,also playing League Europa,next match is against PSV,one of the two best dutch clubs from Eredivisie.
My character has grown up to 85 as LWF (Left Wing Forward) and 81 as CF(Centre Forward),at only of age 20.

I believe New Vegas' biggest downfall was to make most of the Legion pretty much irredeemably evil. It's one thing to offer a darker faction but they cross the line so many times, it becomes impossible to relate to in any way. They are rapists, murderers, slavers, racists, cannibals and they also wear silly hats. The only good thing anyone ever says about the Legion is the old "they made the trains run on time".
I guess it's more remarkable that you can join them in the first place.
Edit: I should probably mention that I played DQ before NG+ was even a thing. I have no idea what they changed since then.

With all that in mind, I just agonised over whether to go Yes Man or Mr House just there. I was fully intending to go independent without question, but House's speech persuaded me otherwise. Having started out on a fairly malleable outlaw, self determinst route, I was swayed by Caesar into recognsiing the need for a change to the status qou. Not his change though. I was going to do it my way (lol) and take on the mantle of Benny's legacy.
The original intent of this was basically because I heard it's the best way to 'see' the game and all of it's factions, so it was a no brainier really. And when Benny urged me on to do it it sounded quite exciting, a sort of once in a lifetime thing chance for greatness thing.
But I guess didn't realise the extent to which the plot had really gotten into my head, because when I was about to start shooting up the lucky 38 it occurred to me that from a role playing perspective, in terms of how the game was interatcing with me and I with it, there was absolutely no motive to do so beyond self interest, which I had basically eschewed after meeting Caesar. It would have been a very arbitrary and unnatural choice in terms of keeping with how my character was evolving.
House had made a good argument, seemed to have his heart in the right place and was clearly very astute in regards to the big picture. His plan was egotistical but it was not solely centered around political self interest and pursuit of greatness alone, like the other options. So, much to my surprise I'm working for House now.
The game had made me care about stuff in spite of myself, and in spite of my gaming intent, to the point that breaking the fourth wall and character really felt wrong, which i think is a real testament to how good NV is at enabling role playing and meaningful choice and consequence.
It's been a really organic play through in that my character has evolved and changed more or less in spite of my self and my intentions and plans. I'm totally enthralled, quite obviously.
But I note in spite of all that taking the Yes Man route is still an option anyway..I have no idea where I'll end up, and it's amazing.

Playing some Unity of Command here:
It's the second turn, I already made some moves and I think that I'm in a worse situation than before.This south breaktrought it's not looking good, and in the center and top fronts, I have retreat a little.
But man, this game is refreshing and challenging. Those damn supply lines are very well thought. You cannot push very far without it, and the AI knows it and counterattack to cut them. In this map, you can reach the middle URSS city you see here if you push from North, but your supply line it's cut in the center and in the south. In this attempt, I have tried to go for the South to try to break the front lines, but I'm stuck and cannot advance too far. So, you think I will make it?

Playing more of The Witcher, and I feel like it's getting more and more entertaining. Chapter 4 gives you new places, new people, new monsters, and basically gives you a clean slate to do some good ol' witchering without having to worry about government conspiracies for a while. After spending days walking among all the stuck-up pricks in Vizima's trade quarter, solving peasants' everyday monster problems is refreshing, a nice return to form.
I still don't like that it's constantly so heavy handed, though. All this nonsense about 'finding my identity' and 'pledging myself to Triss/Shani' just has the effect of rubbing your face in how this game has choices! For gods' sake, the game asks me whether I want to hand over the care of a magical child prodigy with unpredictable powers beyond our comprehension to either a powerful sorceress, or an army nurse, and then the only consequence of this choice is that the lady in question will act like the two of you decided to adopt a puppy or something. It's completely incongruous.
In tangentially-related-to-PC-gaming news, I played the demo of Rayman Legends on a friend's Wii U, and it was, shall I say, completely balls-to-the-wall awesome, as a demo should be. The gameplay remains mostly same, but the graphics are ramped up to eleven while keeping the same aesthetic. It was previously exclusive to the Wii U, but then they announced it for other platforms as well, but the PC version is still uncertain. On the one hand, I'd really like to play a PC release, but on the other, I don't really have much hope for it to be as good as its console counterparts, since Origins had its co-op features completely stripped out. (To their credit, the game suffered almost no negative impact because of it.) By the look of it, Legends has even more capabilities for cooperative play, and somehow I don't expect Ubisoft to come down with a sudden benevolent urge towards PC gamers that motivates them to implement local and online co-op in the PC port. So, if we do get Rayman Legends, it'll most likely be the inferior product, which makes me doubt they'd be willing to make one at all.

Origins had local PC co-op, I'm sure.
Also, I'm playing Napoleon TW after only ever playing Empire. I get the sneaking suspicion this is how Empire was really supposed to be. It just feels better somehow, and I actually liked Empire a lot.steam: sketch

Still on a break from The Witcher, now playing Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory for the first time. This game is an incredible advancement from the original Splinter Cell (never played Pandora Tomorrow). Enjoying it very much!

Dabbling in the ArmA 3 Alpha from time to time and decided to take a proper run at STALKER Call of Pripyat which has been sitting on my HDD for ages. Apart from disabling head bobbing, I think the vanilla game will be sufficient unless someone can recommend a good mod(s).

Fallout 1 and Minecraft. Playing with my sister ( who is 21 years old ) and it is lots of fun. With mods of course. Vanilla minecraft gets boring fast.
