Mudrunner is absolutely brilliant in co-op, Mini. Having players position themselves around the map to provide support roles is essential to completing the log delivery's that are the main goal for each map. You should at least try gear changes! So much more engrossing than auto.

Looking forward to tonight. Super eager to continue my NMS run now that I have a freighter, my base has a teleporter and I have a clue. Equally excited to log into Warframe where I have three new frames cooked and ready to use... Chroma (space dragon), Ember and Nyx. Apparently a decently forma'd Chroma with an equally forma'd Lanka is currently the ideal for solo-Teralyst runs (the big monsters thing in the Plains of Eidolon).

I have definitely done some manual gears, mainly just to hold it in 1st, rather than it randomly changing into 2nd or 3rd and losing all drive through big mud puddles and water. I have been playing mostly with 1 other person, and have been mainly just doing our own deliveries without worrying about helping too much. Have had a couple of instances where we have towed each other up a hill or through a big section of mud.
We have now completed all but a single of the standard and DLC maps on casual. The problem with hardcore is the log pickup, I think I could figure it out, but know that my brother wants to rage quit when trying it, maybe I can put myself on log loading duty while he delivers stuff.

I'm assuming you are playing NMS on console (Xbox?)

I will have to keep an eye for when you are one then... It is one of those relaxing run about games...
Now if I could just find this bloody part I need for the hyperdrive I would be much happier.

Wowzers... farmed like hell tonight, made 6 million in credits.

It's the abandoned building method with whispering eggs. Place down a base-building computer, then build four walls around one batch of eggs. Shoot an egg outside of that wall to cause the swarm to surface, then jump into your little enclosure and grab all the larval cores. Rinse and repeat across the base. Did two abandoned bases and yeah... have a nice multitool, an upgraded ship and a second frigate.

More of that tomorrow methinks!

Zelda Breath of the Wild was delivered today... which means it is sitting on my desk next to me while I am working.
It is a slight distraction.
On the Switch, I completed Mario Odyssey Monday night, and spent an hour last night going around collecting more moons... was addictive trying to find them all.

Also got a few games of Overwatch in last night, was some good fun, especially playing with 3 mates that are just happy to play.


Tonights plans are for some racing, haven't used my wheel in ages, so some Project Cars.
Then probably some Rocket League, and Defense Grid 2. Maybe even a little bit of leveling in WoW

Mini, you're starting to sound like me!

My night is quite simple still... a bunch of Warframe with the rest of the NZ-based clan, then back to NMS for more larval core farming with a view to buying a few new freighter escorts.

Tonight we got into some Project Cars (Original one, brother hasn't grabbed the second yet)
I forgot how much fun the G25 wheel is with these sorts of games. Had 2 races, both set the time limit to 20 minutes.
First was Bathurst with the Renault Megane's. I managed to come second, and wasn't far behind first, brother came in 7th.

Second race was some race track with a name starting with Z in China... was a really nice track.
Went out for 20 minutes practice as neither of us knew the track at all, I got the quickest time. Race started, I didn't get the first corner correct, dropped a couple of positions then got knocked off the track a couple of corners later, ended up being 24th (out of 31) after the first lap...
Second lap I got up to 19th, then someone clipped my rear corner panel coming out of a fast corner, I clipped the grass and ended up spinning, right back to last position. Next 15 minutes was spent battling back through the pack and ended up 14th.
All while I was doing this my brother had got first place and ended up winning by 10 seconds, never got challenged and put in the fastest lap of the race (half a second faster than my practice time). Was good fun in the end.

Damn, I thought Monster Hunter World would be hitting PC today.. even just for a preload, but it turns out there is no preload option available and we can't begin downloading until 1AM tomorrow morning AEST.

Yeah I could have told you that. The grind towards cooler gear isn't worth it when movement and attacks all feel so horribly clunky.

Traded my xbox copy of Monster Hunter in today actually, and picked up No Man's Sky so my mate can play it with me. In about a quarter of my current PC playthrough, I have a 30 slot ship, a 15 slot multitool, a freighter and 3M in credits still. Have also found the most gorgeous, peaceful planet to put down some roots on.

We didn't even get that far, 2 hours in and still trying to figure out how to connect for coop and my resolution randomly changing made me bin it, which is a shame.

Got stuck into some No Man's Sky today while I had a day off.
Managed to find a new star system and had to rename it (I wasn't very imaginative, it is now Mini System)... Had already found a new planet on another system that no one had been too, it is called Mini Planet.

On my second or third system jump I came into an area with a freighter under attack, killed off the attackers and was offered the freighter (WOO!)
Built the extra room to send frigates out, and sent my first group out on an expedition. Need to make a bit more money now to get a couple more of them working for me. No idea what they do, or what they will bring back, so that will be interesting when it finally comes back.
Also helped a random guy with some carbon for his suit on a space station and he gave me a multitool. think it has 24 slots compared to the starter which had 5... lots of broken parts on it that I am now going to start repairing.

I don't know much about No Mans Sky other than all the outrage when it was released.

I know it was recently updated. Is it actually good now or just OK? Should I pick it up when it's on sale??

Finally got my game saving. Really annoyed because last night I found a blissful planet which was so nice and had a super multi tool from a space station. Now my starting planet has acid rain and hostile sentinels

Depends what you want in a game... I would describe it as farming simulator in space for me.
A very peaceful game (Until the planet actively tries to kill me) of finding stuff and learning stuff.
Currently trying to find more words so I can understand these fuckers!!
I got it at $30 and I am happy with that, not sure how much more than that it is worth

Some planets have aggressive sentinels... also they don't like you killing animals, trees, or even removing rocks...
So if they catch you doing any of that they get angry at you. I try to avoid them when possible, and run away when they start scanning me.

Riiiight, I'm with you, I just wondered what they were because I didn't notice any on my starting planet, Nekosan had some on his though.

Kind of unsure what to do now that we've moved to another galaxy, do we keep just jumping and then find a planet to settle on or what?

I jumped until I ended up helping a freighter with pirates, who then gave me his freighter.
I'm now trying to upgrade the freighter.

Not sure I am actually settling anywhere currently. Although I have just found an awesome moon with some weird-ass creatures on it...
Nice climate, lots of resources, and small sentinel (robot) presence. Might start building some sort of base on it, just gotta remember to add a teleporter onto it to get back to it when I want to.
