Definitely get Link's Awakening too if you've never played it. That and the Oracle games are great.

Oh yeah that's another thing. While "AK-47" is used to refer to all AK's generically, strictly speaking it refers only to the first generation AK with the milled steel receiver. That was replaced fairly quickly by the AKM which used a pressed sheet metal receiver. This was lighter, cheaper and simpler to produce and less prone to breaking. If you look just above the magazine on your golden gun >>42133980 you'll notice a little lozenge shaped dimple. Those help to hold the magazine in place. A proper AK-47 with a milled receiver has a broad rectangular section milled out of it in the same place instead see here: >>42126566(Also in video below).

Now to make things a bit more confusing Romanian AK's like my AES-10:>>42133985
don't have dimples, instead they spot-weld sheet metal tabs inside to hold the magazine. Also, the AES-10 is an RPK built on an AKM receiver. The AKM reciever is 1mm thick, while the RPK receiver is 1.2mm thick, making it a bit more rigid. If you watch an AK firing in slow motion it is pretty amazing how much they flex under recoil:
Inside the AK-47
And all that flexing has a detrimental effect on accuracy which is further magnified by the longer barrel.


I had a pimped-out MP-7 in Wildlands on my old PS4 I think it had like, a blue and purple digicam pattern on it or something. I pretty much exclusively used the M110 and the Mk.48 in that game though. I started a new game of that the other day but quickly lost interest because I just didn't feel like spending 2 or 3 hours flying all over Bolivia collecting all the good gear and skill points before I actually started playing the game proper.

I'm still trying to grapple with the controls on the GBA version of Link's Awakening, it's a really interesting game but it's very opaque in all aspects of design.
I'm sure if I got the Switch version, all the QoL problems would be fixed. But also, like, the Switch version is absurdly expensive, and the GBA version is just, like... on my emulation handheld already because I shoved an old zip of popular games into it. So I really wanna manage to play the GBA one and save my cash. Plus, a lot of people who swear by the classics keep telling me the old one's nebulously better in some way, so maybe it is...

Oh, I also bought the MW2 Remastered Campaign. Mac got me an Xbox Live gift card of a hefty value for my (upcoming) birthday, which was super sweet of him. Tbf its one of the only kinds of gifts he could get me without, ya know, being here/me being there, but still. That's how I got those Gears 5 skins and UDT Ghost (the latter of who is included with MW2R).

I streamed the first three missions of MWR here: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/611957286 (including the infamous 'No Russian'). It looks and feels pretty damn good tbh.

My brother is planning to move out this month and he was originally gonna take the Xbox with him but he made a deal with me where he basically sold it to me for $150, which is a pretty good deal considering that even a used one is $250. He's gonna be taking the 60inch TV though and I'm gonna have to downgrade to the old 30inch one I have in my room. Thank god I didn't sell it!

He'll be taking the speaker system with him too which seriously blows because my good headphones broke, so all I'll have for music is crappy $20 Sony headphones and the old TV. I remember there was a time I was amazed by the quality of that old TV. Seems like a joke now.

I like both a lot. Some days I'll play Killer all session - normally days when I have other stuff to do too that I can do in the long queue for being Killer - and other days I'll play Survivor all session, when I want some good ol horror and cooperation. Being the Killer doesn't feel scary at all, of course, lol, and I like being scared sometimes.

Out of curiosity, how good would you say you are at this game?

Country code: ponies-twilight.png, country type: ponyflag, valid: 1  42136707

>>42136652
Not especially good. I have great matches sometimes, and I know the best setups for farming lots of XP and having fun, but as far as things like actual overal k/d go, well, you can see its not great. I also primarily play Shipment 24/7 now, which is a map where you basically either get stomped or you do the stomping, it kinda goes back and forth.

I'm a lot better at MW19, and I'm also kinda good at the original Black Ops. But CoD isn't a game you need to be good at to have fun with, and even the "good" players are often just players who abuse cheap loadouts.

>I would recommend everyone watch Scorpionz aka Josh when it comes to the pig. This killer in his hands is a piece of art. Uses no slowdowns perks, no add-ons, only the traps and mind game skills. Always play as rank 1. 7 k hours player. I believe pallets are the biggest problem as for many m1 killers so I think perks dealing with that issue whisper, monitor and abuse are good on her.

I don't know what the average is for COD because I don't play it. I've seen people talk about how great they are at the game (Not Chewy) and have a K/D of like 1.2 or something, so I wanted an idea of what the average is.

I haven’t played my Xbox for a good month, and some of the old games I have haven’t been used in years, probably half a decade for some of them.

I’m going to put all 37 of them on Amazon. Some of them are selling for up to £20 used so I could get quite a bit out of them. I’ll probably sell the Xbox as well at some point.

I decided to take a break from World of Warships and have a go at World of Tanks.

Is a difficult transition to say the least. Not only is WoT a far faster-paced game but it's been so long since I last played that I've pretty well forgotten the lay of many of the maps and knowing how best to exploit the terrain is large part of not sucking.

Also I don't have hardly any OPAF borderline broken tanks to help me cheese my way to victory. OK I do have the Panzer IIJ but it's not nearly as OP as it used to be.

That belongs in a museum. I don't think I played that one but I do recall playing a few Sierra Entertainment games back in 90's and early 00's. I think they got bought-out or folded into Valve or something.
