    It's not as obnoxious as in SA, but yeah, that kind of stuff is present. Eating, horse feeding, weapon maintenance, etc. You don't have to really even do that stuff very often, but all the same it's another case of bogging a game down with unnecessary systems just like SA. RDR1 did it better.

    Sometimes I feel like the only person who had less fun with SA than with VC and IV.

    I loved Vice City the most, actually. I couldnít get through SA, quit before even reaching 3rd city. Game was too big for its own good. IV didnít grab me at all and I donít even own V.

    I've finished all of the 3D GTAs. For me it goes:

    VC > IV > III > V > SA > LCS > VCS

    IV has serious problems (map size, incessant phone calls, being the first RS game that started going too insane with how easy it is to get a wanted level and how hard it is to get rid of), but I really liked Niko, the plot (particularly the end sequence), some of the supporting cast (Brucie is a lovable dbag) and the expansions. I'd rate it lower without the expansions.

    Man I want Bully 2 and L.A. Noire 2.

    I own Bully, never played it though. Never played LA Noir either, but figure at some point itíll be a free PS+ game for the month.

    Neither reached their full potential. They're both too confined and lacking in content and needed refinements in the mechanics that set them apart from RS's other titles (like interrogation in LAN), yet both were still plenty of good fun.

    That's mainly why I want sequels. There's a lot of untapped potential in both of those titles.

    And also L.A. Noire has the coolest cars in any of the RS games. Cruising around in a Tucker 48 or a Cord 812. Great stuff.

    Tetris? Is that some sort of Hatris knockoff without hats?

    Don't feel bad using it with all the stupid forced "realism" the game shoves down your throat.
    I just float in and out of the game , I play the good guy , but your right , they try to shove too much down your throat . like Forza Horizon 4 where I just do what I want to do , I wish they did the same in RDR2 !!!

    I always have a fun time at Halloween Wolfy. Love seeing the kids get dressed up, and the hot little soccer mom's too.
    I binge watched cheesy horror movies all month as well. My fave month of the year.

    Figured I’d put this here as well...a little tour of what I’ve been working on: my arcade Front End.

    Still a work in progress, but it’s coming along nicely:

    1972 made for TV movie “Gargoyles” on Svengoolie tonight. I know there are some really good football games on tonight, but if you are looking for something a bit different, Gargoyles is actually pretty entertaining.

    98%! Holy crap! You couldn’t get 98% of Americans to vote even if you paid them $100 each.

    Wish we had sausage sizzles at our voting booths. Just people outside handing you pamphlets and telling you who you should vote for. I did get a free pen and a pin once.

    They gave me a free sticke “I Voted”
    98% that’s really great. This election Tuesday my guess would be a good turnout for a midterm election but 98% no way.

    I`m having a little giggle here , our voting is compulsory , a little fine of $50 if you don`t vote , plus it`s on a Saturday . our Marriage Equality vote was done by postal vote and it wasn`t compulsory , 80% voted for that , not bad I reckon !!! most of our schools are used as voting booths , I heard the other day , I can`t remember which town it was , which only had 1 voting booth , and the Republicans said it was closed because of construction being done near it , and placed the new booth some amount of miles away . sorry I can`t remember how many miles it was . anyway have fun on Tuesday , I will !!!

    It always blows me away how much about our elections people from other countries know. We know jack about yours!

    The Tuesday voting is rather stupid in this day and age. One of those things that started with a valid reason that simply doesnít translate to today. Problem is, itís now tradition, and truth be told there are many that like the fact weekday voting suppresses turnout.

    Iím not holding my breathe, but Iím really hoping the page gets turned on Tuesday. I really want to go back to not caring about politics, but as long as the Cheeto and his enablers are in control, Iíll sadly not be able to do that.
