    Been playing this game for almost 20 years now. It's rare to see a system with a population of over 400. Perhaps 1 max 2 per game. Not every game at that. 440-450 at best. 550 is unheard of. In 20 years. Imaging my surprise when last night during my stream I got to see this. And yes I was playing as the Romulan Star Empire and did get to persuade the Angosians to join me. The production in this system is unbelievable. I am going to need it to beat the United Federation of Planets and Ferengi Alliance, alliance.

    I started streaming some more Fallout 4 on twitch and while I get no views I do get a lot of fun out of it. Last time I played the game was a couple of years ago I think and well, my memory could be playing tricks on me, but I don't remember the game looking this good. Or so smooth.
    Anyway, good looking game now. I hate the new loading times though. Something is definitely wrong as others seem to have this issue. I don't have a new CPU, i7 5960X, but it's plenty of powerful and a 3.5GB/s drive and it takes many many seconds to load parts.
    I wish Bethesda would fix it, but who are we kidding, it's Bethesda.

    My student is beginning his journey in the world of Tekken 7 (a young friend I play with who I have been teaching the game to, he has come as far as I did in months in just two weeks). :D

    So the Serbs copied the design of the building in HL2 and built the parliament looking like it. Nice!

    Jokes aside, I think I remember the level and I did NOT like it. It took me like 4-5 attempts to go through it.

    I usually hated the fight with the striders that follows the part in the building. As for the building itself, I generally like it (though some parts less than others).

    BTW, some of the spots that I remember as difficult went quite easily this time, as if there were fewer enemies or something else. For instance, to me, the hardest bit of the game was the final stand off in Nova Prospekt (after we meet up with Alyx). Previously, I always cheated in that part: I'd die a bunch of times and then I'd stack some crates and, when the Combine charged, I'd get to the higher level and somewhere away from that area, and just wait for the script to run. This time, I got through it on the second try.

    EDIT: BTW, after exiting the building, Gordon is urged to get to "the horse". There is a monument in Belgrade, near the Parliament, that's known as "the horse". Unlike the building, though, it looks nothing like the one in the game (it's actually an equestrian statue of a XIX century prince; poor sod, literally the whole city meets "at the horse", no-one says "See you at Prince Mikhail").

    Funny, sad, but funny. :)

    I haven't played the game since I beat it...15? years ago or whatever. I still remember some parts. Not the horse though. :)

    My two daily drivers (not present here is my Lamborghini Centinario which is my other daily driver and the OG car I used to drive, the Ferrari handles the absolute best though and can build points scarily fast):

    Yeah the graphics are pretty, especially when it rains or snows, or whatever, there are minute details like the brakes of the car heating up and then cooling down when you stop, and cooling down faster or slower depending on if you go again.

    And also if you stop you notice the exhaust pipes shaking/rumbling. Hot rods have their engine rumbling too as it sticks out the hood. Also there are seasons that change (winter, autumn, summer and spring) globally for all players. The dee jay on the radio also says what is happening for all the radio stations depending on what is going on, for example if you just found a rare car in a barn find she/he will say that, or if you just won a racing title that, or doing stunts for a movie or whatever may be going on. For a 2018 game it's held up quite well.

    The game is STUNNING. The detail, the lighting, everything just beautiful.
    I am playing at 1440p, max all settings other than film grain, blur and MSAA which I have turned off.
    MSAA because I heard it hurts performance, blur and film grain because I never like them in any game.
