Mackay with facial hair in Battlefield 2042
If you want a dark and gritty look, you gotta add facial hair

The following post is part of a series of posts that are published every Wednesday to update readers on what I've been playing during the week (this also includes games on my "Pile of Shame"). The games to target are picked by Choicest Games contributors Choona, Luke and myself. As I'll be talking about my progress through these games, there may be spoilers ahead, especially for games containing a narrative. Consider yourself warned.

Not much to report here. Still grinding to get the final achievement!

Battlefield 2042

I've only played a little bit of Battlefield 2042 this week as a lot of my time has been spent trying to troubleshoot the issues I reported about last week. I've now tried clearing Origin's cache and reinstalling the display drivers in safe mode but still no luck. My most recent test is to activate a DirectX 12 flag in a configuration file although I'm skeptical as to whether it will result in any changes. If this doesn't work, more drastic changes will need to be made such as reinstalling the game or reformatting the hard drive. If I end up needing to reformat the hard drive, I think I might just give up and not play the game anymore. It's not worth it.

UPDATE: The game still ended up having issues when loading however the next time I booted up the game after forcing it to close, I at least didn't need to reconfigure settings or repeat the tutorial, which while annoying is at least an improvement.
