Thanks Chucky! Good one, specially If It´s free! I have the older version, IIRC It´s the 2018 version? Anyhow, a bit of a pain to figure out how the RoadBook works, at least In the older version.

Call of the Wild: The Angler is free on Epic this week.


A guy walks into a bar and hears two women speaking in a British accent. He asks, "Are you ladies from England?" One says to him "No, it's Wales, you idiot!" So, then the guy says, "Okay, sorry. So, are you two whales from England?"

Yes, the real irony here with many of these free games from EPIC and other online services is that they are often never played.

Let me know what you think of the game after you've put a few hours into it. I tried several times to get into it but the game simply didn't draw me in.

I so wanted to like this game, love the era and graphics are great but couldn't get used to the combat - I found it awkward and left me cold. I may try again if it has been perfected.

Eh, the combat takes a little bit of practice. After getting the hang of things fairly well, I feel KCD combat is quite a bit more realistic in implementation than other first person medieval games. There's a soldier outside of the southeastern town you can practice with, and after about an hour of clanging blades you should have things down.

Best advice: Buy the best weapons possible, before armor. The top dollar longsword was a game changer, and always remember to use war axes against armored foes.

I've only played KCD once, one year after release. That was what, five years ago now? Good grief.

But anyway, my comments at the time were that KCD had the best melee combat I've ever used in a video game. And what really impressed me was how progression is done. The way my character improved along with Henry's narrative, from a blacksmith's son with no training to the best swordfighter in the land. It isn't just a matter of git good, but the synergy between practice, acquiring new moves and understanding. It all meshed in such a natural and believable way.

Just make sure you have the stats for it. If you're strength and dex aren't up to snuff you're gonna suffer a penalty and flail around like a fool.

Seems more like my ineptitude then! May fire it up and give another chance on the Series X over Easter, cheers.

Will do PM.

Feels like a decent game but can already tell the combat will take a bit of getting used to, which isn't a bad thing. Just got my first training session from the bailiff, won the archery but lost the swordfight so didn't win Hans's bow.

Maybe yeah? Haven't watched it, but my take is it is based on the Fallout IP, not any one game and even then it takes license. Regardless, both games have seen a huge shot of new players as a result of the show.
