I punched him and then roundhouse kicked him, but I wanted to complete the quests for the guy so I went down the racist route too.

Btw the only way I managed to beat him up was by brute forcing it, as it had about 20% chance of success, so I just kept reloading the save over and over and over again until it worked.

On another note, why do I have a hankering to dig out my copy of NMS again? Has it improved a lot?

It's had a lot of big updates. The Devs have actually spent a lot of time improving it. Worth another go at least, I'd say, if you haven't already. No guarantees you'll like it.

Just finished Disco Elysium. Very good. Thoroughly impressed. Got an ending that I was satisfied with.

I'd love for a new Fallout game to be done in the same style, as it'd hark back to the originals but still be fresh enough to not be a slavish copy of the originals.

Been playing through Halo for the first time, because my parents wouldn't let me play M rated games and I was poor as shit growing up so I couldn't get Xbox or Play Station stuff.

Tis been fun, I will now refer to Master Chief as Exterminator Chief as that's basically what most of the story of the first game is.
