Been playing Blitzkrieg 3 demo. Base game is $8 cdn on steam.
Riders of Icarus
Just another day in Hakanas Crossing
Some Blade and Soul landscapes.
Monster Hunter - World
The newest trio of meat by the names of Rennid the FNG who has no luck at all with boats Tressed the pet/ball ripping beast slayer (Just the right height after all!) and assistant Reziteppa ...Which yeah bit backwards but eh, it'll work. Ha ha.
(Yeah sure it will, prepare to dine edition! Pfft.)
EDIT: Also taking up a fair bit of space so tagged just as with Yakuza 0 above.
WE HAPPY FEW
Red Faction Armageddon
Kuze's one helluva character though Nishitami isn't half bad either, for the main characters though Majima is definitively more interesting than Kiryu so far but both have their moments.
Guy never gives up.
Well he's on cooldown now at least.

Well that's certainly a surprise fight. Yakuza in a tea-house. Hella tough too.
Ha ha. Wonder how the game is going to try to top that crazy little battle dungeon.
Excellent game really, candidate for title of the year so far, amazing.
Image embedded above is during the end of combat and the blue tinted view it briefly uses so not as much of a spoiler, the non-embedded one though while I really liked how it turned out is a actual end-game spoiler.
Monster Hunter World
The main menu, minus most of the UI elements.
(Rotten vale I presume. Haven't found it yet but heard about it and that seems fitting.)
The newest resour..member of the expedition team, Nocab
Sadly the game won't let you have him "assist" in the kitchen area of the home base, oh well.
(Guess he won't have his full name just yet. Nocab Regrub, ha ha.)
Terrible with names. <-
Eh, it works.
Everything so far on this expedition to the island of nope is going the wrong way so I guess it keeps the theme really keeping it backwards heh.
Yeah you can't really name the pig AFAIK. But the main duo of Rennid and Tressed the battle-cat / dress-up monster distraction is still going strong one weak critter at a time working up the chain to the big tooth/fang/tail things.
The Elder Scrolls Online
Just started playing this, and I am very pleasently surprised.
Appears to run on an engine very similar to Skyrim, but reminds me of Oblivion in how the world feels large and unconstrained. Which brings me to the other point, the quests are once again numerous and well thought out [which is exactly how they felt in Oblivion], while the general aesthetics and lore are perefctly balanced.
Finally, the online element feels seamless. Lots of people (and their pets!) about, so you really do feel like your in an MMO. Overall, ESO appears to have taken many of the best elemnts of the series, and executed them in an online environment remarkably well.
So far, no bugs to speak of, either ?!?
It's pretty polished, they took a existing MMO engine (Hero Engine I think?) and updated it and by now it really shows. Sunk a lot of hours into the game but took a break because it was getting a bit too time consuming and I had done most of the PvE exploration and missions over the course of a few hundred hours and wasn't a fan of the focus Zenimax was putting on the micro transactions so I decided to let it rest for a while.
Summerset seems like a really good piece of content now and I guess the dungeon additions are nice for delvers who are into organized groups and raiding for these new items and other rewards or just the challenge.
Still wanna see the rest of the pieces of Tamriel not yet included but I guess some of them like Elseweyr will be hard to implement due to lore being kinda confusing ha ha.
And one of these days Akavir will have to be added to some Elder Scrolls game after all the teasing of the fun and adventures over there.
EDIT: Monster Hunter World
Yes, to be honest, I did feel the Loot Box function was reminiscent of online gambling, but I'm willing to look past that and the initial "Crown Store advert" when logging in, as it's not so obtrusive once you start to play and can hold out on any gambling urges!
Elder Scrolls Online
Heading further into Morrowind...
Tomb Raider 2013 - reshade
Monster Hunter World
Hiding the player model turned out to only work partially since the head mesh is part of the overall geometry for the shader toggle so yeah...oh I'm sure a floating head is easy enough to overlook.
This..doesn't really work.
(Teeth and eye are separate too.)
EDIT: Well time to experiment with the binocular item then, zoom might be a bit tricky for screenshots though but eh it might be OK though the hub areas don't allow for using items.
EDIT: Binoculars seem to work, at least for the various adventure maps though some scenes see a increase in brightness from toggling off the vignette and chromatic aberration effect.
Gears of War 4
GeForce Experience now recognizes UWP games, so... FPS and screenshots are possible.
Though, problem with GFE screenshots is there is always a delay from when you press the button to when it captures the image.
capture it with windows game bar (you can edit those keys in xbox app dvr options)
