Also we were playing on a pretty low difficulty level. I think once we ramp up to the harder levels the friendly fire will do a lot more damage.

This isn't in reference to any specific thing, just sort of an awkward Blackhawk disclaimer.

I'm not a very social person most of the time. I have a hard time grasping the back-and-forth of socializing. It's an autism thing. So, when I meet new people I tend to be both formal and reserved, as it lets me fall back on hard social rules rather than more... subjective socializing. Once I get to know people and relax, though, I stop being so reserved and formal. At which point my lack of ability to read people tends to lead to me spending a lot of time with my foot in my mouth or looking like an ass. I tend to talk over people, make comments that are inappropriate, or act like a know-it-all. I lecture rather than converse, as I don't know how to converse. I don't always have an appropriate filter, as I never know what filter is appropriate. None of it is intentional, and none of it is because I don't care. It's not a lack of empathy. I'm just blind (on a genetic level) to a lot of the social cues that are obvious to others, and constantly struggle to compensate by analyzing what people are doing instead of just 'knowing' the way normal people do. It's tiring, and when I'm tired, or stressed, or if I let myself relax too much, it starts to slip and I find myself annoying people again. And I rarely know that I'm doing it until someone gets fed up and snaps at me (not undeservedly.) It's all of that, constantly, that makes being around others so stressful for me, as I'm always actively trying to not let myself relax. It's like performing in front of an audience, constantly.

Anyway, I know I get that way around you guys sometimes, and when I do, I apologize. I don't notice it at the time, and always feel terrible afterwards when I realize it.

Apparently a pretty big bug happening right now with GTA-Online.
Best not to log on for a bit.

According to Rockstar it was just resolved, but I'll likely give it a day anyway.

So I've had some requests to post longer videos than just my usual clips, highlights, and montages so here's a couple of longer clips.

So, here's a couple of World War Z clips featuring a bit more gameplay.
The first one is a portion of our playthrough on the Jerusalem maps.



The next one is much longer and is most of the Moscow campaign.



I have several more hours of WWZ play to post but I want to do a more thorough job of editing before I post them.
These two were mostly just to get feedback from those requesting the longer videos.

WWZ has put out a big update today, along with a new episode DLC and a GOTY edition. There is an upgrade option for current owners to the GOTY as well.

Went ahead and grabbed it. I figure we got the basic game for free and we've enjoyed it so throwing $20 their way is a good thing.

I did, too. A new campaign is very appealing.

To be fair, I was never directly responsible for the destruction of 'Hawk's helicopters.

World War Z - Gameplay featuring the new Marseille map.
Not sure if anybody is watching these or not but I'll keep posting them.

If you remember, we may all want to try reinstalling Strange Brigade. It'd give us another option in the rotation.

Hey, I won't be there tonight. I'll be around, and likely gaming, but I need to be able to pause and walk away every few minutes tonight.

Have fun!

No problem.

I'll be there but will be a bit late as my computer is a bit taken apart at the moment.

If we are going to play Sea Of Thieves soon, I would recommend everybody play through the Maiden Voyage tutorial first. It teaches most of what you'll need to play and, if you are thorough, you can unlock a secret area that will net you 25,000 gold to start off with so you can better equip your character when we play together.

I've finished it, and done a mission or two to get a handle on things in addition (plus watched a handful of videos as the game is confusing.)

I'm comfortable with the basics at this point.

Cool.

I haven't done any missions yet but am looking forward to it.

Make sure you check out the WWZ patch notes. They changed a lot of abilities.

Link. You have to click "World War Z – The Dronemaster Update" at the bottom of the article for the patch notes.

Killing Floor was kind of fun. Though it was also really confusing at the beginning. I'm not sure if you can start up a private game. I also think there were usually more than the "default" 4 people in most of the games. So even if you can do a private server, you might be making things tough if you only have 4 people.

Of course, it's been a long time since I played it (last played it with GreenGoo some - to give you an idea). So everything I said may be outdated.
