    Yes i did buddy, looks like the arse end of hell, out there.

    Mike.
    Back in the 1970s a young probationary cop I knew (from the small country town I lived in) was finishing his training in Sydney and was asked where he would like to be stationed for his initial posting.
    He said something to the effect of "over the hill".....a country-ism meaning to the country, not the city.
    He was really pissed when he was sent to Broken Hill!!

          Installed and into the first mission in the Campaign (solo player....no multiplayer for me).
          Having played SE4 you'll be at home with the controls - they are the same.

          Initial impression is that it's a "prettier" SE4; graphics enhanced, obviously.

          Worth the AU$35?
          Time will tell but right now I'm treating it as a continuation of SE4 but with my GPU and case fans working twice as hard!!

          UPDATE
          Yeah....as a single-player doing the Campaign just consider it as a tarted-up SE4, set in France instead of Italy.
          For multi-players it may have some additional attraction (such as the "Axis" feature) but for we soloists it is really same-same but prettier.

            Hiya Bruce, pretty good purchase for you then. I had to pass at the moment, i want the deluxe version. Which is only 40% discount, so with other commitments i had to grit my teeth and say, not at the moment

            There is quite a bit of DLC as well, so that could be expensive in the long run.

            Enjoy buddy.

              Off topic a bit I know, but after the mention of Fallout 4 earlier in the thread, I reinstalled (vanilla, no mods) and, erm, for the last three evenings not touched anything else - trains, planes or trucks. Seems to be stable after ditching the mods. Just off to Vault 81 to grab Curie as a companion and Overseer’s Guardian, best overpowered weapon early/mid game.

                It has this tendency to suck you in.....well, maybe not everyone, but I certainly do.
                No mods at all, Vern?
                Wow! June 2019 was the first - and last - time I played FO4 without mods.

                  Well, to be honest, Mike....I've become bored with it.
                  As I said earlier, for me it is just another chapter of SE4.
                  But I'm bound to get back to it at some point but it won't become a regular game.

                    No mods at the moment Bruce, may start cautiously start adding some back in but as I said at the moment nice and stable.

                      Bruce i am glad i did not make a purchase then. Does not sound like it is one of your must have games, buddy.

                      Quite happy with Enlisted at the moment. It has lasted nearly a week, so that is a good sign

                        @VERN:
                        Over the years the only mods which I have kept (I've tried dozens) fall into these categories - Weapons (and only ballistic...I don't use sci-fi weaponry); Environment (a greener world and less radiation) and those which affect how the AI/NPCs behave.
                        Horizon also.
                        Never had a problem with stability.

                        @MIKE:
                        Yeah....save your money. Having tasted it I really would not have bought it if I'd known.
                        Not looking for a refund but as I say, it'll stay installed and I'll no doubt fire it up occasionally.
                        Have not yet tried Enlisted.
