Rainbow 6 Update due today/tomorrow

I feel I would be so crap I would get annoyed.

But might be worth a look for giggles.

I do have that fear. Hopefully all the good people will play ranked and we can go unnoticed in non

Oh feck me sideways… It’s been that long since I played this I have a 66.50GB update to get. Thank god I’m on fibre now so will only take 2hrs 45mins, dread to think how long it would have been if still on copper wire broadband :confused:

I’ll reinstall it over night. Might get a game this Sunday evening

100gb download for me


Just looked on Amazon. A 120GB SSD is about £20.

They could literally put the game on an SSD, place it in a plastic DVD case, add an instruction manual - and sell it as a ‘gaming cartridge’ for £40.

We’ve literally gone full circle. I expect the Megadrive III to be announced next week.


I played a bunch with friends over the last two weeks. Still fun as fuck but we are not ready for ranked mode yet.


Hmm… Been reminiscing with @nomane tonight bout this. Maybe, just maybe a lockdown revist? whatcha think? @Jester @Angelclaws @adrock @RoGuE @VirulentPip @Hammy @adrock @MadMan @n0tch sorry if I missed others (can only mention 10 apparently). Trying to recall who was all playing.

Could be good fun just ZiiPster? new maps likely, new characters? No idea wher they are upto and any costs involved. 4 years ago though came out. Just saying. Seems like yesterday.

It’s close to a 200 GB download now.

The hammer still makes me chuckle

I did love this game when we played it!

Jeez. Don’t know if I could manage that for a wee blast.

and who could forget the power of PQ? (you’ll need to go fullscreen to read the text comments…)

I need a brandy and apple juice now.

Hammy’s “Did you think you were fucking carrying Thor’s hammer?”. Brilliant.


I’m busy downloading the game to give a bash again :slight_smile:


Its only a 75 gb download. When I uninstalled it last time though Im pretty sure it was close to 200 gb

I’m really not sure. This was one of those games that really pushed my buttons. The bad buttons. Buttons that had no business being pushed.

I think it was the fact I didn’t play long enough before having said buttons pushed so I didn’t learn maps and gameplay nuances. Catch 22.

Yeah, I’m downloading only 75 Gb but there was an option to download HD texture pack which I didn’t go for. I guess this is 200Gb.

I’m going to download again - but with only 1 PC in the house, I’ll hot-seat with @Angelclaws
