That really sucks for PC players.

Paladins - When this launched, I wrote it off as an Overwatch clone and laughed it off. There are characters that are near copy pasta from Overwatch in this game, and the game modes are as well (mostly). But, I was looking for something competitive to play on the PS4 and with this being a free to play game the price was right. After giving it a shot, I must say, this game is ten times more enjoyable to play than Overwatch. Unlike Overwatch, which allows players to switch characters at will during the course of a match, Paladins locks players to their character at the start. This eliminates people yelling at teammates to switch characters, and doesn't get you banned from the game for playing a character you enjoy playing as (Overwatch started banning people for 'one tricking' which is ridiculous). If you have a bad team comp, you can set your expectations for the game right at the beginning, but the game is malleable enough that I can make plays that can make up for a bad comp (as long as the team plays the objective). The F2P elements aren't too bad, as I've been able to unlock enough characters to allow me to play ranked in a few days. I could go on about it, but I don't want to write up a novel here. It's a fun game, and it's free. Give it a shot.

NM, latest patch is introducing a bunch of P2W shit. Deleted.

 

 

Deftech, where are you in HZD?  That game is my GotY, and possibly my favorite game of this generation.  Maybe of the past several generations. 

Leaving Meridian to help that guy with the thing about his sister.

Since I took the past two weeks off from work, I've mostly been playing games that scratch my competitive itch, spread mostly across PS4 and PC:

 

PUBG - Love this game, and some of the changes that are coming with the 1.0 patch look to make it even better. Vaulting will be huge, and the new map is sorely needed. Getting a solo win in this game is so incredibly satisfying.

 

Overwatch - Installed this for the third time, played for ten minutes, and uninstalled it. Just don't have fun with this game.

 

Heroes of the Storm - Installed this for the second time, played it for a few days, and uninstalled. Something about competitive Blizzard games find new and exciting ways to make me angry. As a solo player, it seems the game forces me to win/lose at a 50/50 clip. I'll get matched up with a team that has a semblance of knowledge of the game for a game or two, followed up by guys spinning in circles, not playing, or kill chasing. After an extremely painful drubbing, I uninstalled this again. I had fun playing with Tychus and Nazeebo, so that's a plus. I do enjoy the gameplay, so I'll likely install this again at some point.

 

Horizon Zero Dawn - Bought this during the PSN Black Friday sale since so many people were praising the hell out of it. It's not bad. I typically expect the worst with games that have as much hype as this has had. Graphically (sans characters faces) the game looks beautiful, and the music is really good. The story is engaging, but at thus far it feels a little run of the mill. Combat is fine, though the human enemies are a little too easy to take out. The gathering/crafting aspects are weak. Pressing Triangle a bunch while you're running around isn't very compelling. With all that said, there hasn't been a 'wow' moment for me just yet. I suppose I may still be fairly early in the game (just hit level 11 or 12 I think), so there is plenty of time for that to happen.

We pushed our office holiday party a week earlier as to not interfere with screenings for The Last Jedi. Sounds like you need to find better employment.  :D
