Been playing FarCry Primal lately. Burned through most of the main quests, too many games unplayed to deal with the million fetch/find things, so it won't get a 100%. As for old games, as always I play AoEII. Just picked up the most recent expansion - gotta love a game that puts out expansions on probably 20 year old products.

I've been playing Tom Clancy's Rainbow 6 Seige... It's a hoot to play with my wife and kids.  For lighter fare we've been playing Path of Exile.  Pretty much a diablo replacement MMO.  Free to play, and you get a lot of fun without spending on useless upgrades.

I've been on an old school Sierra kick.  Just finished King's Quest VI, and am having another go at the Quest For Glory series (GoodOldGames and Steam both sell all 5 games as a set for 9.99).

I'm about 160 hours into my very first runthrough of Skyrim. I killed Alduin 20 or so hours ago, and helped conquer most of Skyrim (for the Stormcloaks) like 50 hours ago. There are still holdout cities and camps with unkillable legates. I assume this means I'm not done yet, but I'm not sure. In the meantime, I'm just knocking out side quests left and right.

Any advice?

You're pretty much done, though play the Thieves' Guild line if you haven't yet. Then, Play Fallout: NV until New California finally drops.

I'm still collecting the stones so I can be a full member, even tho I'm already head of the guild. I'm also a vampire, werewolf, head of the companions, head of the assassins, head of the nightingales (i think), arch-mage of the college, and a bard. And probably a couple other things I've forgotten over the last few weeks.

also, I only play on my xbox, because my crappy lappy isn't remotely powerful enough to run a Fallout game. so unless they release New California as a mod for FO4, I'm boned.

Been playing Diablo 3 on my Mac a lot. Never played before but tried it at some "History of Video Games" exhibit in San Diego this summer.

Also, just found out there was a "Chapter 2" to Half-Life 2. DL'd it and beat it. I think Half-Life 2 is probably my favorite game of all time.

I'm looking forward to the Call of Duty: WW2 beta for PC to be not broken (keeps crashing on load). Played the beta on the Xbone and dug it.

I'm looking forward to the new Star Wars Battlefront in November, and Far Cry 5 early next year.

Why has no one released a sequel to The Bard's Tale remake? There are plenty of writers looking for work., and Carey Elwes could use the money. Negotiate for the rights, hire a modeler and and a landscape artist for a couple of months to start, then then make sure Elwes is on board, choose an off-the shelf engine, then shop it to a publisher. Shouldn't take more than a year of development if you can hire the right programmers and artists. Then 6 months or so for tweaking, new dialogue etc., and another 6 months of beta testing.

I think in 2 years you could double your money on $80-100 mil, as long as you didn't get too ambitious and instead focused on story, then dialogue, then voice acting between characters, and ignored the stupid 100% thing where ou have to find some robin's egg high up in a tree that you can only get to using a teleport spell at exactly the right spot.

Aim for 40-60 hours off gameplay instead of 200+ by putting in senseless fetch quests all the way across the map. And if you do, do it sarcastically, with him biatching about the whole way. That game was brilliantly written and Elwes made it happen with his snark.

Picked up the Wolfenstein games someone linked to in last weeks thread - couple hours in to "The New Blood" its fun but I havent really gotten anything more powerful than the standard rifle the Nazi's carry... unless you count the silenced pistol...

Golf Clash on the phone... damn that game is addictive.
 
2017-09-29 09:14:14 AM  
Finally got a real tabletop game together instead of that adventurer's league nonsense.

Tiny little sorcerer with every elemental cantrip in the game and fireballs for days is a go.  Already managed to win a shoving match with a raging barbarian with Gust and heighten spell, just because he challenged me, and un-made a fort's entire entrenched fortifications in less than ten minutes just before an orc attack because the DM decided to play the human-majority military command as annoyingly racist, then sank all of their boats when they tried to escape.

// Yes, I have the power of Heart, too.  It's called the "friends" cantrip.

Still computerless for the next week and a half, so living vicariously through forums about the big Elite Dangerous update.

Any of you E:D guys been blowed up by Thargoids yet?

Well, I've been a terrible gamer. Basically, all I've been playing this week is this glorified Bejeweled clone with anime boobs:
ksr-ugc.imgix.netI bought it as part of a Humble Bundle, so my success at seeing all the cartoon breasts did at least effectively include a charitable donation.

I see that Lego Jurassic World is on sale on Steam, so I may buy that. Also, I'm going to finish out both XCOM: Enemy Unknown & Brütal Legendthis week to get my 12in12 back on track.

Also, here's a link to one of my Minecraft streams where I die. A lot.

This.  I didn't have a whole lot of time to play last night but I fired up a Mazdamundi campaign.  I love the small improvements like the better end turn button, the bigger main settlements, and the different edicts.  I can't wait to get some of the bigger beasts to fight in my armies.

Last week as prep I finished my Clan Angrund campaign and also played a dwarf VH campaign after with thorgrim just to see how it felt comparatively.  Regular dwarves are so much easier even on VH.  I never even got to use many higher end units beside a couple hammerers.  I might try them some day on legendary.  Once game 3 hits, and hopefully skaven and chaos dwarves are after the mountains also, I think dwarves will be a hell of a bigger challenge.

Been trying to finish the Van Helsing game, but my single player backlog is gonna have to take a seat to Dead by Daylight.  Completely sucked in, been leveling up my Leatherface but just tried the doctor and I'm enjoying the insanity.  Doing a little survivor too, but my teammates always hookdive and leave me the sole survivor. :/

Tried lawbreakers out last night because I want to support a local developer, but I'm not very good at it and the low rank community is very toxic.  And I say this coming from dbd, where the salt builds mountains.  Maybe I just got some bad matches.
 
2017-09-29 09:19:35 AM  
I just started Divinity: OS2. I picked the dwarf (beast) as a cleric. I am only on the second level of the opening ship. Hopefully I won't have to restart too many times from stupid character build decisions.

I tried to play some old castlevania on a raspberry pi NES emulator. The sweet memories didn't flood back.

Warframe, in prep for the Plains of Eidolon patch. Along with some Fortnite PvE, fun if you don't try to rush the campaign (Still in early access, so the content's not finished).
 
2017-09-29 09:21:14 AM  
No Thargoids for me in Elite yet, but I've been bouncing around the bubble grinding Fed rank, picking up and kitting out my Gunship at last, and then spending a few hours getting the engineers to have a look at it.  7 engineered autocannons is a very fun way to collect bounties, it turns out.

I don't know if I'll go looking for encounters myself yet.  I mean, I probably will, because pack mentality, but there's nothing meaningful I can do with them.  Not that interested in refitting a ship as a Xenoscanner/hunter yet, but with the market tools still apparently screwed since the update, trading is a manual chore once again, and I'm burned out on exploring for awhile.  Maybe it is time to play around in Conflict Zones after all...

And iRacing... got my oval participation done in the USAC 360s at Lanier, and going to switch to Pro Mazda at Daytona Road for my road side.  Formula Renault as at Bathurst this week, and as much fun as it was to drive a league race there the thought of driving it in open play gives me the shivers....

Older games, well, I've been blathering on about the Trails (Kiseki) series here for over a year now so...

Since Battletech got pushed back to next year, I had 60$ of steam cards burning a hole in my pocket, and there was a sale last week, I made some purchases based on these threads from the last few months.

Heart of Iron 3
Crusader Kings 2
Stellaris

I've started HOI3 and Stellaris.  So far Stellaris is a lot of empire micromanaging (exploration and expansion phase on my first run-through) and it seems OK.  I like it better than Masters of Orion 3, but it doesn't seem to have the charm of 2, although that's what it most reminds me of.

I like HOI3, and I can't believe I've never played them before.  This reminds me of a more detailed Computer Third Reich, previously my favorite World War 2 grand strategy.  I like the diplomacy in it, but for the life of me, when it all hits the fan I can NOT figure out how to task my interceptors and bombers, although the enemy AI seems to have no problem with it.  I'm on easy level (learning the game), so it isn't hampering me too much, but it annoys me to no end.

Haven't played CK2 yet, but looking forward to it, right after I crush Poland (sorry guys).

Anyone with HOI3, is it imperative that I get the DLC?  I got the base game to see wat I thought of it, and I am pretty happy, but it seems like it is pretty solid without the DLC.  Anyone whit the DLC care to opine?
 
2017-09-29 09:26:18 AM  
Loving Wasteland 2.  Not too far into it, but they won me over with the quirks and kept me hooked when I learned that choices have consequences, completionists be damned.
 
2017-09-29 09:26:37 AM  
Panic!  PANIC!  I'm DMing my first game in decades in a full-day adventure on Sunday.  I'm running a homegrown campaign, and I'm nowhere near ready.  My mind is chock-full of D&D rules, gods and cosmology, not to mention the map, encounters, and characters of the first adventure.   I ... may have overextended myself.

The campaign's heavy on universe-mechanics (a wizard tries to understand the gods scientifically), so I've been cramming like crazy.

I also bought a few minis and I'm really happy with the results.  I've got a beholder (zombie) to scare the shiat out of the PCs, and a glabrezu as the Big Bad.  When the party first sees it, it's battling a halfling, with both of them locked in stasis.  The scale of the models is exactly what I wanted, with the glabrezu towering over the halfling, almost 3x the height.

2 more days and still so much prep to do.  Wish me luck.
 
2017-09-29 09:27:00 AM  
I've found myself replaying Super Robot Wars Original Generation this week.

Hopefully I can get some persona 5 in this weekend though. It's been hella busy with the new twins in the house.
 
2017-09-29 09:28:40 AM  
Still trying to unlock the rest of the engineers in E:D.  I got Selene Jean,  Ishmaak and Palin this week.

I'll tell you what, I bought myself an FAS and kitted it out for that combat zone community goal last week, and that thing is FUN.  I've got a big MC on top and a big beam on the bottom, with two medium plasma accelerators on the side, and it's a blast to fly.

But for now, I'm working on the final tweaks on my explorer AspX build.  I think it'll be time to take it out into the black again.

I haven't interacted with any thargoids yet

GRCooper: Still computerless for the next week and a half, so living vicariously through forums about the big Elite Dangerous update.

Any of you E:D guys been blowed up by Thargoids yet?


No.  But I am 2000 LY away from home, on my way to 3 lonely little neutron stars I found while searching for them.  They are not all that near to any nebula or other points of interests.  I have about 10 more hops to go to the first one and I haven't seen a claimed system in the last 10.  I may be able to claim then?

I have only been able to play about 2 or 3 hours of the update. What has changed from exploring (at least on the PS4)
-Unexplored / unpopulated systems come up as anarchy instead low security/clean now.
-I saw that there was something to do with salvage in the release notes.  So I stopped and checked the random 'unidentified signal' that pops up.  Data caches are no longer illegal.
-
I will stop for more of them.  Maybe with an update, I'll get a random Thargoids encounter? Which would suck way out in deep space.  I probably have about 40 mil in exploration data saved up at this point. I have gotten really good at cool down/activate/boost/re-enter FS from the times I had a few painite from a mining run, though.  So I got that going for me, which is nice.

Wife and all my kids are busy and gone this weekend.  Not busy as in I have to do stuff, but I'm still home.  They are gone gone. I have been working mostly from just before 7am until 10 or 11pm every night this week.  I am taking time for me when I am done with work today.... and hopefully tomorrow.  And stocking up on some libations, because drinkin' and explorin' is so much fun.

/I'd say cue the pietasters, but that is probably a little obscure for most.

For Skyrim fans that don't know yet, a head's up. Unlike Fallout 4, you'll have to get the survival mode through the CC. I think the Frostfall creator is involved. Cost is 800 credits. The lowest tier for buying credits is 750, so if you've used up the free 100 when it launched for Fallout, you need spend more for the 1500 deal. However, they're making it free for the first week. The Cazador dildo using turds are trying every trick in the book.
 
2017-09-29 09:37:03 AM  
Guildwars 2 path of fire expansion came out last week, so I started playing that after the hurricane of server bugs that usually comes with an expansion passed.  Otherwise it's been Breath of the Wild as it's one of the few things i can do on a 3 hour commute to NY with 2 of those hours being on a train.
 
2017-09-29 09:37:08 AM  
Does anyone remember the game which used to advertise in Dragon magazine with art of a graffiti wall/alley saying "Always outnumbered, never outgunned"? There may have been a dead person on the ground kinda Borderlands looking and I think the game was cyberpunk-y/dystopian future. I cannot remember the name.

Also, scalpers have the SNES up to $180 on Amazon. People are assholes.

ox45tallboy: Why has no one released a sequel to The Bard's Tale remake?


inXile is currently making Bards Tale 4. They made Wastelands 2, Torment and are working on Wasteland 3 so they are a bit busy. I think I recall them saying they wanted to revisit the Bards Tale remake in one of the kickstarter videos they did they. I wouldn't think it would happen anytime soon.


I'm playing Divinity Original Sin 2. Pretty awesome turn based combat RPG. Multiple ways to accomplish goals and the environmental effects in combat are great. Something other RPGs should incorporate imo.
 
2017-09-29 09:39:56 AM  
I'll be picking up my pre-order for the SNES Classic after work, unlock Star Fox 2 and play the hell out of that, then probably go download Golf Story for the Switch.

As far as old games, going through the lot of Famicom games I bought was interesting.  Transformers is as bullshiat as advertised, though the Macross game was pretty good.  Got some RPGs like Samsara Naga I have to get translation patches for, but looked interesting.  Dragon Quest definitely ruled the day in the Famicom era and it shows in the influence on styles.
 
2017-09-29 09:40:59 AM  
I found a ZX Spectrum emulator and I am playing "Jumping Jack" from 1983ish...

Still can't finish it though.
 
2017-09-29 09:44:16 AM  
Finally getting around to the Metroid 2 remake for 3ds and I am loving it. So far it's a very good reimagining of the original.

For older games I picked up and loved I would say Anacronox. It is a cyberpunk RPG that has tons of charm. Some of the fetch quests and such can be a bit annoying, but the combat is fun and the overall atmosphere is kind of a cross between Blade Runner and National Lampoon. If you like turn based RPG's and the Cyberpunk genre, you can't go wrong with giving it a try.

Or, alternatively, I look for a fan-made "survival" mod on the Nexus.
