So I just finished up one of the most fun days of gaming I've had since joining PCP, and I just felt the need to share how it went down. Started out this afternoon by downloading Forza 5, if you haven't played this yet, do it. I jumped right in to the first season and started racing against Drivatars from my FL. Now here I am racing against the computer, yelling at Wipsy and Alkihol for cutting me off (that's the beauty of Drivatar, they weren't actually there, but still drove like douche bags). I then jumped into a party with a couple of other pigs and we tried out a couple of custom private races, we're oping to have a lot of fun with this title over the next few years.
When we finished up it was getting to be dinner time, so with a simple "Xbox, watch TV" the family and I were watching TV and spending some time together. After watching a couple of shows with the kids it was time for Daddy to play some more, so "xbox, go to friends" and let's see who's playing what. Oh look, there's a group playing Ghosts, join party (thanks for the tips Nejin on making this process work better
and get pulled into the lobby. I spent the next hour or so rolling Timmy in HC Dom, and I'm a guy that never really enjoyed HC, but on the new console it's soooo much better. Then we had an extra pig looking for room, so I bowed out and headed over to Bf4 for some Pork and Bourbon.
I again jump into a party and get pulled right into a match, now we didn't win nearly as much as we did in COD, but everyone was laughing and having fun. And when it comes down to it, that's why we're all here, to laugh and have fun. So I spent a couple more hours in there until it started to wind down, and that concluded my gaming for the day.
Now in my 3+ years here at PCP, I've had a lot of fun days gaming, many with more hours than I put in today. But today felt different, I played 3 different titles, with 3 different parties of pigs. Didn't hear anyone complain, in fact, heard everyone have a good time. I don't know if it's the new system, or the long weekend for thanksgiving. But whatever it was, it was perfect.
Thank You PCP!
P.S. Now I don't mean this to pressure anyone, or make anyone feel bad. But, if you can find a way to save up and swing an X1, do it. Until you play on it, you can't even believe how different it is. The 3 title I just talked about, are all big, beautiful games that make you go around the map and just say WOW. And I know some don't want to watch TV through the xbox, it's for games. Well let me (and anyone else who has one) tell you, this thing games, AWESOME!
Sorry for wasting so much of your time, it was just that fun of a day wit PCP!
