    I know right, I thought it was fake news at first if I'm honest and when I found out it was true, I couldn't believe it that Microsoft bought Zenimax (Bethesda) for 7.5 Billion.

    Yes me too, I loved playing on Fallout 3 and 4 also New Vegas there were all great video games and instantly became one of my favourite franchises. When you first step out of the vault for the first time, it was such a vivid experience because I loved the ambience within the world of Fallout. The wastelands were a different place to get lost and withstand extraordinary creatures and, to level your karma system in Fallout 3 was great! 76 was merely okay, but it didn't feel the same somehow, maybe because it was online. Oblivion and Skyrim were also incredible games. I think I played on Skyrim so many times. Also, their exclusive games would be on game pass day one.

    And you don't know what's around the corner with Fallout New Vegas because Microsoft also has Obsidian exciting times.

    I also have an Xbox and I would love to have the series X.

    The Garden Between.

    Played on this little gem of a game, and it was so peaceful. This game made me very calm and collective. I enjoyed it it's not perfect its short in length of gameplay and, I was starting to enjoy the experience when it ended, which was a shame.

      That is a lot of money - wow, video games have probably now surpassed film as money makers.

      76 was an utter disappointment. Skyrim, on the other hand, was sublime. To be honest, sometimes when I'd get stressed out, I'd just jog around the countryside, seeing how many mountains I could climb over without sliding down and swimming up and down the entire length of rivers as a meditative exercise without doing a single quest for hours.

      Ooh. I can't wait!

      Yeah, me too! I just laid out some money for a monitor, though, so it'll probably be next year for me unless they have some amazing Black Friday online deals (not going to the store!)

      The game looks fantastic. You post such lovely screencaps.

      The next two games on my list are Hades on Steam - not my usual thing, but the reviews are so incredible regarding the storyline and narrative structure and it sounds right up my alley with all the literary allusions to Greek mythology and the underworld -

      and Manifold Garden, which is a new puzzle game on Xbox that is supposed to be a real Escher-like head trip that defies gravity.

        I'm currently playing on 'Spiritfarer' at the moment and its great entertainment.

        You play Stella who, becomes the new Spiritfarer and you follow her travels on a boat to complete quests and favours to the spirits she meets until the last dying wishes where you accompany them to the Everdoor. All these characters have a connection with Stella and its a creation of her being a carer.

        It's a beautiful game so far.

        buffylover, I was so taken by your images that I downloaded the game on my XBox. Very excited to play it in the next few days!

        Watched the intro and was swept into the story right away.

          American Aurora That's fantastic news I would have recommended this game to anyone who likes management games. It's such a compelling captivating game with such unique, distinctive characters to meet and care for with their backgrounds. I also really liked the gameplay you manage them to learn they characteristic. Also, the theme and concept of death are special to witness and play. And I hope you enjoy it.

            Continuing with Spiritfarer and it's such an emotional rollercoaster. Seeing and hearing these characters express their last thoughts are upsetting especially the farewell of Stanley! I don't want to spoil it for anyone, but it was genuinely sad his speech before he leaves the Everdoor. It crushed me.

              I am also a fan of the Fallout series Mass Effect Trilogy is also a gaming masterpiece I guess. At the moment I am playing Path of Exile, a nice action RPG.

                  Welcome to the Forum, Bobby Broky!

                  Fallout is one of my favorite games of all time. I’ve played every incarnation and I have to agree with buffylover that Fallout 3 is a masterpiece! Blowing away mutants at close range in the US Capitol while hearing Danny Kaye sing “Civilization” with the Andrews Sisters is such a hoot. I love old American popular songs from the World War II era. Bingo, Bango, Bongo!

                  I’ve been sick in bed for a week and just slowly getting better. And I have to thank you, buffylover, for suggesting Spiritfarer - which I played for five days straight while recuperating! Such a brilliant, heart-wrenching game. I was not expecting it at all, but once I realized where it was going, I was captivated.

                  Mass Effect is amazing! I have to admit, I don’t know Path of Exile. It looks like a fun action RPG - lots of dungeon crawling. I see there’s already a sequel coming out later this year. Maybe for Christmas.

                    Mass Effect is great, but my favorite games from Bioware is definitely the Dragon Age series. Btw, Is anyone here excited for Cyberpunk 2077?

                      I agree with you about "Fallout 3!" Those songs were fantastic but, Agatha violin was something special, her compositions were making the game have an atmospheric vibe whilst I was exploring the wastelands. It felt like I wasn't alone that she was accompanying me whilst I explored the wastes. The radio soundtracks in "New Vegas" is also very moody and I loved the old classic country singers.

                      I am so thrilled that you enjoyed this magical game and, it helped you to get better.

                      I completed this game just yesterday!

                      Spiritfarer.

                      This game was very captivatingly beautiful. You play as "Stella" and, the gameplay is focused on you the player to take care of spirits and trying to accomplish, the last requests before entering them to the Everdoor. The gameplay was so addictive and challenging to comprehend out the characteristics of the characters.

                      The management side of this game was also very addictive. I love the fact that every material and item was significant towards the game design and characters that lived on your boat. What makes this game renowned was the unique definition of the theme and concept of death, the notion illustrated within these characters was so emotional.

                      The one that moved me the most was the character called "Stanley", he was represented as an 8-year-old boy who was the youngest patient that "Stella" cared for on the boat and in real life. His characteristic was naive and full of life, I adored his personality trait, especially when you figure out that he likes "desserts" and he does the desert dance. Anyway, but his speech when you take him to the Everdoor was heart-wrenchingly painful. He broke me.

                      I also download the soundtrack for this game which is remarkable.

                      ★★★★/5

                        Currently, playing on Blair Witch ready for Halloween. It is a decent horror game with satisfying gameplay. Here are some screenshots.

                        Blair Witch.

                        I just finished "Blair Witch", and it was decent. The gameplay was a satisfying performance that it made it a little thrilling to play. Overal the scariness wasn't that scary it has its moments but, nothing groundbreaking. The atmosphere was good, and I enjoyed that concept but, I think I liked the simplicity of the movie better a continuous-time loop. So yeah, it was okay.
