Ive wanted to write a review of this game for over 2 years but things have gotten in the way, looking at you No mans Sky with your incredable patches!
There are many games some are well good and some are bad but some are just something new and amazing and Subnautica is one of those games.
Of all the games ive played over the years Subnautica is one of the most enjoyable games ever.
Word of mouth – No mans Sky:
When No mans’s sky wasnt what it hyped up to be, people where pissed. I played it when it launched and wile it was “good” it wasnt what was promised. The failure of No mans sky was a blessing for other small indie games doing a similar thing.
After reading articles dedicated to 5 games better than “No mans sky”, “Subnautica” was mentioned, id never heard of it. So i had a look at the website and youtube trailer and i thought to myself yeah, this looks good.
Chill out & Stressful?
This game is such a chill out and yet serious game all in one. You can spend all your time just exploring, just floating along gathering stuff as the games music makes you feel at home.
I cant recommend this enough, its one of the best game experiences ive ever had in over 25 years.
So i have been using the app for ages and had a number of different accounts setup on it.
New phone, new problems:
When i got my new phone i assumed that when i logged into my google account and downloaded the Authenicator App again that it would setup the app with the codes that i had on the app, Wrong.
How wrong i was! it doesnt do this and i would need back up codes for all the services/apps i had installed! I thought that i only needed the backup codes for the app and not for each service that i had installed. Your talking about multiple back up codes for multiple login services.
Over the years ive had two hard drive’s fail but one failed before there was even a chance to know the drive was about fail probably before S.M.A.R.T back in 2002/2003. It was a brand new drive with alot of programming stuff on it. I didnt think id need to backup a brand new drive oh what a lesson learned.
The first one was at a time where there was no google cloud and no online sync and backing up was a pain in the ass.
The Windows 10 1903 update
When the Windows 10 1903 update “rolled out” it became one of the worst experiences ive ever had to go through in upgrading a Windows PC in almost 20 years.
When i did get the fecking thing to work after two BIOS tweaks it revealed another problem. Everytime windows booted up one of the harddrives would dissapear for no reason.
Turns out after a few software hard drive diagnosis programs, the drive is kinda fu*cked and its a Western Digital Drive.
S.M.A.R.T – Self Monitoring and Reporting and Tool:
This invention in hard drive tech is fantastic, if your having problems with a hard drive and do a scan if there are any problems with the SMART settings then you could be in trouble.
Now the drive is still working but S.M.A.R.T is reporting problems with the drive which isnt a good sign.
Thats two Western Digital Hard Drives dead!
Dont buy Western digital Drives im guessing i bought these drives cause they were the cheaper option and that wraps up this post with this link to a survery of hard drive failures and yes Western Digital is number one.
The worst thing about Black Ops 4 has to be the match making. The amount of bugs in this game 10 months after it was released is just unacceptable. Now before you get your list of excuses ready im talking about the multi player game.
the microtransactions work great lol. (tells you all you need to know)
Here we go;
This lobby is not joinable
You join a lobby the game loads it stops loading and you get his message.
Joining a game mid-game and viewing the score board is broke
Play of the game is broke: i actually thought it was just on PC but no its on PS4 too and doesnt display players setup
Sound problems there are no gun shots if i remember right.
Doesnt display anything sometimes
UI Error 62811:
No idea how or why this happens, it happens when you join a game and then nothing.
PC only :
Block a player and you still see their text chat
An absolute favorite tune of mine from the moment i first heard it back in the 90’s. This reworking is stunning and i actually hated it when i first hear it with the vocals as that’s not the way i remember it but ive grown to love it now.
