I didn't play Portal or Portal 2 until years after their release.

I'm still at it in PoE, as well as Oxygen Not Included.

Coworker has an Atlas server up, but I don't have that kind of time to invest in a game.

I've stalled out on RDR2 as well. Time.

Can't wait for the graphical Dwarf Fortress to drive me insane.

//Ok, the rest of the way insane.

NetHack. I've been playing for a couple months now and recently completed my longest game. Only made it to dungeon level 8 and XP level 9. I am totally addicted, but damn if this ain't a hard game.
 
2019-03-14 05:39:58 PM  
The Division 2.  If you liked the first one, you'll probably really like this one.
 
2019-03-14 05:44:31 PM  
I've been playing Satisfactory for a while. They just released their NDA and are about to start selling the game.

In the game you land on a pristine alien planet and build it into a huge factory.

Gameplay is basically a bunch of "build widgets so you can build even better widgets so you can build even better widgets".

But that sells it short. Exploring the planet is fun, and there is something quite enjoyable about accomplishing a series of easy tasks.

I think anyone that really enjoyed the crafting side of MMOs would like it (it especially reminds me of Star Wars Galaxies), but anyone that didn't might be better off playing something else.

playing Rimworld. Been going back and forth on playing FO4 but i really enjoy rimworld

Finished second in B division at my pinball tournament last week!  Coulda won had I not been a dummkopf with the Smart Missile on Jurassic Park.

Anyone in CO, be sure to check out Blizzard Mountain Pinball in Conifer. Good folks.
 
2019-03-14 07:24:28 PM  
I play a lot of stuff on the five years later discount plan. Most recently FO4 which was extended with the Frost mod for serious survival play.

That led to some hardcore Long Dark survival runs...until Epic gave away Slime Rancher which totally distracted me for a few days until the recent Humble Bundle which led to some Plague making which is going well and running through the Offworld Trading Company training.

I can quit any time I want.

I've not played much recently, just  been dabbling with Cities: Skyline and picked up King of Fighters XIII on the cheap.  Not going to be doing much 'playing' with my computer this weekend, as I'm going to be migrating off my laptop.  It's had a good run, but the keyboard took a Dr. Pepper spill a couple weeks ago and it hasn't been the same.  So I've decided I'm going to dig my mom's old desktop out of storage and begin tweaking it.
(It's pretty much like this one.)
I don't plan on leaving the thing bone-stock, though.  I already maxed the RAM up to 16gb, and plan on yanking the GT 730 out of my slim-case Dell as a stop-gap until I get a few bucks together for a better graphics card and power supply.  It'll be nice to have a computer that can actually run some more modern-ish games decently...

I got Duck Season and I Expect You to Die in the VR sale on Humble last week, both are awesome.
And I decided to upgrade my setup with the new job starting next week so this is my plan -

Getting sick of framerate blarg on PUBG, and I want to get a 4K gaming monitor to go with the QHD one and ditch the 1080p one.  
Or not.  I dunno.

Late game would be Bayonetta for sure.

Also got on the Half Life series way late when Orange Box was a thing.
 
2019-03-14 09:30:04 PM  
Just Dragon Quest 11 and Ys 8.

The Division 2 launches tomorrow so I'm hoping to squeeze some time in with that this weekend.

I've been playing the new Toejam and Earl. OMGs. So awesome! Totally true to the original that I ❤  so much. However, I must warn you all about a slight deviation from the norm. The Angry Inquisitor judged me guilty, I burst into flames and fell down a level. Not surprising, really - if I hadn't still been hiding in the elevator. 😶

Ryzens are beasts but I would suggest ditching the OEM Wraith for a closed-loop liquid cooler so it will overclock itself

I have been playing Doom 2016 recently, for the last few weeks.

As for games I got to late but enjoyed , I would count Painkiller and Portal in that.  Still have not played Portal 2

Wild Appalachia dropped for Fallout 76 earlier this week. Small update, content wise, but a lot of significant changes. They massively cut back on the budget that turrets cost, so you can finally build a decent sized base. And a lot of bugs and issues also got taken care of.
 
2019-03-15 09:08:12 AM  
Spider-Man since all I need to do is beat the game on NG+ and on Ultimate difficulty.  Was late to the table with Bastion and Shovel Knight.  Shovel Knight has the same issues that most modern platformer run into where controls are tight until you get into the combat. May also get back to AC7 to finish my no damage run and then start work on the machine gun+speed run medals.
 
2019-03-15 09:09:38 AM  
Finally finished Super Mario Oddessy. Now playing LoZ: BotW. Man, what a game. Next are the South Park games.
 
2019-03-15 09:13:24 AM  
Factorio .17 for the most part. I've just located and secured a source of oil, and started the refining process. This update has added quite a lot of polish to the game. The fluid system is so much easier now. The new biter graphics are creepy, and the new balances to enemy strength are quite good. I'm really enjoying the research queue, since I can just stack up the next few items and let it go.

I can't wait to get laser turrets up and running so I can stop belting ammo around the entire perimeter of the base.


I also picked up Space Engineers Deluxe on sale, and it's a whole different kind of complicated. Currently just playing through the tutorial campaign, and it's great fun. It turns out that I'm terrible at flying spaceships, and I keep crashing them into asteroids. Which is not a good thing when you've got to repair them yourself and you have no parts. I can really see myself getting deep into building in this game. You can make intricate and responsive ships and space stations, set up automated drone mining and resource collection, automate fabrication of parts, and you can use those parts to create ships and drones and rule the local space. And it's all in a destructible high-res voxel space. Blow up anything.

Well, this answers teh sidebar question, and covers the first game I'm mentioning this week:

Currently still playing Assassin's Creed 2 when I manage to wrest the controller away from my wife, whom I'd forgotten was super into the first game and is charging far, far ahead of me on the game. I'm only half-watching when she plays because I don't want the plot fully spoiled for me. Fortunately, she's mostly do the side quests and typical Ubisoft collect-a-thon stuff when I watch so I'm mostly unspoiled plot-wise.

I'm still very early into the game. So far, I've only assassinated one target, Gonfaloniere Uberto Alberti, so the plot's not fully kicked off in earnest yet. I did crack the heck up when Mario Auditore introduced himself to me with the "It's-a me, Mario!" soundbite. And now I'm busily learning to fight and touring the villa in Monteriggioni. (I'm not spoiler-phobic, and I know the game is ten years old at this point but it's still fun to find the story as I go)

Haven't gotten too far, but have managed to assassinate Vieri de' Pazzi. I'm pretty sure he's an entirely fictional character, but my dimly remembered knowledge of European history is somewhat stirred by that surname. Pretty sure that means some serious political intrigue is going to go down in game. As for my version of Ezio? Well, his current assignment is to find a figure known only as La Volpe..

I'm also enjoying the Republic Trooper class story in Star Wars: The Old Republic. I know it's technically a MMORPG, but I'm playing it effectively as a single player RPG, so it's the closest thing I'm likely to get to Knights of the Old Republic III (I'm also doing it as Free to Play, because I'm a cheap bastard). I've finished the prologue on Ord Mantell and am now into what is apparently the first chapter on Coruscant. I accidentally did a Flashpoint mission (which I think is the equivalent of a dungeon instance in WoW?) Assault on the Esseles, which involved dealing with Mandalorian mercenaries, a Sith apprentice and a couple of interesting karma choices. I'm playing my trooper as super Light Side, so I'm probably making things a little harder for myself.

Once I got to Coruscant, I've taken an instant dislike to my commanding officer, General Elin Garza, who's a lot more pragmatic and a rather more cavalier attitude towards collateral damage than my character has. So far I've tracked down War Droids and sabotaged them without killing many civilians. This included suspected cyborg infiltrators who Garza suspected of being unwitting sleeper agents. I let them live. After that I managed to sneak into Black Sun crime syndicate territory, disable their nerve gas canisters and steal a prototype blaster.

After admitting to some unsavory aspects of my squad's history before a Senate subcommittee, I was sent to infiltrate Justicar territory and capture former Havoc Squad member Jek Kardan. I did this well enough that he actually turned himself in, which gave me time to disable a compromised communication array.
That all being done, after reporting in to my CO, I discovered that one of the Senators I had appeared before was kidnapped and taken off world, which means I know have a ship, specifically this rather spiffy BT-7 Thunderclap:

Dawn of Man here. A bit too easy really. It's no challenge building up a village. There's no sense of connection with the sims either, not like Rimworld where you knew every one of them and what they could and wouldn't do. So when 10 die in a raider attack because you couldn't get them into a cohesive group and they run into the fight one at a time to get slaughtered, you think "there's a couple of houses I don't have to build now" not "OMFG, Biff Splatter is DEAD! 😭"
 
2019-03-15 09:18:23 AM  
Been slowly chugging through The Witness and Dead Cells. I've activated three lasers in the former, but it looks like I ain't gonna get much further without guides. Which is a shame as that's not how the game should be played but the shape puzzles absolutely baffle me. I get the mechanics, I just struggle to make em work.

Dead Cells is turning out to be quite addictive! I love games of that nature where you get slightly and slightly further in each run by slowly upgrading your skills. I know the term isn't exactly "rogue-like" but I think it's related.

I often play games behind the curve due to looking for bargains some time after the initial release, only my absolute favourite games will break that rule. I only got my gaming PC last year so there's many many Steam games I couldn't play before that I can enjoy now, the main one being Rocket League.

I also decided to give Electronic Arts $6, since they had The Sims 4 on sale, and liked the first few Sims games. And even if it's crap, what's $6? As part of this, I had to sign back in to the Origin store. Which surprised me because I didn't think I had an account with them. Apparently I did, and I had added my copy of The Sims Medieval to it in 2015. So I apparently have 2 Sims games on Origin. So far, I've created one character in Sims 4, which the game gave the ridiculously badass random generated name of "Jett Savage" despite him looking like an unholy fusion of me and the ugly ginger bastard who used to run Ain'tItCoolNews:

I also have done the first of the Monarch quests in Medieval, so here he is Lord Jay Erso of Abania practicing taking in his beloved mirror:

I'm also still steadily plugging away in the open beta of Magic: The Gathering Arena. Mostly just doing the daily free play quests to unlock more gold (and aim for the 15 wins a week to get the 3 additional booster packs to increase the collection).

I finished up my Civ6 game this week with the expansions.  They do add a lot of depth to the mechanics.  Much better than vanilla.  Not crazy about the price point.

After that, I went on to Everspace.  Goddamit, I want to like that game.  I really do.  It's got great space visuals, that rogue-like approach and meta progression like Immortal Redneck.  But Jesus Hiriam Christ, the controls are straight dogshiat.  Doesn't matter if I'm using controller or kb/m. And there's no way to change them to anything decent.  I had to give it up after a couple of days.  Do a run, fark with controls, do a run, fark with controls, do a run....fark it, load up something else.

Late to the party? Grim Fandango.  That was one I always looked at when I was a kid and never got the chance to play.  Picked it up on sale a couple of years ago.  Good stuff.

Yeah, it's utterly brilliant. I got to a lot of the LucasArts point & click games very late to the party thanks to the remakes, including Grim Fandango, Day of the Tentacle. Really should see if I can find a version of Indiana Jones & The Fate of Atlantis.

Almost done with Devil May Cry 5, and that's mostly all I've had time for this week.
 
2019-03-15 09:28:31 AM  
Playing games late is my MO. I typically hold out for a GOTY edition with all dlc to go on ssle before I buy in.

Stardew gets what very very little game time ive had this week. A "day" t as kes ~15 minutes, which is about the right amount of time for me to fit in time to play.

Dipping back into Battletech... A heavy load out with a pair of Kintaros using 3 SRM6+++ each is a bit of fun. With several having bonus stability damage they can pretty quickly knock down just about any mech they gang up on, then stomping time for the big guys.
 
2019-03-15 09:31:42 AM  
Also, I rediscovered the local arcade bar here in Richmond, VA this week, and visited it with my son. We played air hockey, skeeball, pinball (he did really well on the Star Trek 2009 table, I sucked on the Star Wars table), and then I couldn't get him off the Contra & Frogger machines.

I blasted through the first 8 levels of the old school Gauntlet machine until my Wizard accidentally shot teh food that he "needed badly." Also, they had a few of my favorite 4 player games, including these, all of which I didn't play this time, but I recall being fun as hell

Glad to hear you're enjoying it, the class stories are all pretty great. However, you'll probably want to consider tossing the game at least $5 or something, the QoL of having more hotbars from being a 'Premium' player alone is a big deal. And with the fun money, buy yourself the rocket boots. they're a speed boost on a relatively short cooldown that you can use indoors, great for when you have to run back out of some of the later instanced areas. And if you haven't, get yourself Two-factor Authentication setup, they give you some free fake money every month for doing so, for if you want to buy a cool-looking blaster or something.
 
2019-03-15 09:33:22 AM  
What haven't I been playing this week? I started simultaneous games of Far Cry 5, Witcher 3, and Assassin's Creed Odyssey, so that alone ought to keep me busy for the next ten years.

I also tried out some MMOs. Revelation Online is buggy as f*ck and stupid as hell. Ditto Black Desert Online. Riders of Icarus is pretty but practically deserted, for low level players at least. Elder Scrolls Online is actually worth playing and even marginally pretty with a decent reshade.

Also started up Assassin's Creed 4 because pirates and tried to do Arkham Knight, but that game is still a buggy pile of crap. I get a vague error at launch that could require one of a dozen different solutions according to the Googles, so f*ck that game. And, of course, there's still Skyrim. It took about four hours to get all my mods back in place on the new PC, but it's just so much prettier now with its modded textures and its ENB.

Setting up the TFA stuff tonight. I'll probably toss in some $ once I've done a couple more of the class stories. I'm getting a lot out of it for free currently, so haven't needed the QoL upgrades (beyond maybe a bigger inventory)
 
2019-03-15 09:37:57 AM  
Still playing a certain MUD after 4 months.  My time there has devolved into scouring the pawnshops for valuables to sell to other players at huge profit margins rather than even attempting to level my characters.

A friend got me playing Eternal again (essentially MtG+Hearthstone) and I'm doing pretty good in this month's league (which for me is ~.500 winning percentage).
 
2019-03-15 09:38:51 AM  
Playing Zelda breath of the wild.  It's a great game, but somehow doesn't feel much like Zelda to me.  No dungeons, no item based progression, etc.

Beautiful world though, love the art style.

Also picked up a PlayStation classic.  Working to get bleemsync on it today and side load rips of my ps1 library.  Hopefully all goes well and I can enjoy myself some retro goodness.  Such a shame Sony bungled the original release and game selection, the underlying hardware is supposed to be quite good.
 
2019-03-15 09:38:58 AM  
Internet at home is out, so I could not join in the planed network gaming session. Instead, I finished Resident Evil: Code Veronica, knocking another game off of my backlog and leaving open the question of what game I tackle next.

I am considering South Park: The Fractured but Whole, though I may first take a brief interlude with one of the many short-ish Metroidvanias in my Steam library.

On Wednesday a friend and I finished a run-through of Dead Rising 2 on co-op. We now need another co-op game to play.

My progression in Distant Worlds 2 has gone nowhere due to the lack of checkpoints, though I did participate in the mining CG, turning in a whopping 32 tons as my contribution.


Games that I got into late but enjoyed:

System Shock 2 - picked up in 2003 to wash the taste of Deus Ex: Invisible War out of my mouth. Wished that I had picked it up sooner.

System Shock - Poked at it on and off a few years ago until the release of the updated version on GOG with the integrated mouselook patch. Finally finished it about two years ago.

Arcanum: Of Steamorks and Magick Obscura - Grabbed it from GOG on a whim a few years ago and had a wonderful time with a time mage.

Metro 2033 - Did not get it until it was offered for free with Games with Gold. Metro: Last Light remains on my to-do list.

Shadow Man - Had no real interest in the game until I read that it is a Metroidvania. Picked it up for cheap on GOG a few years ago. Struggled to get it running but overcame the technical problems and had a good time.

Wasteland - I did not even know that it was included when I redeemed my backer copy of Wasteland 2, but once I saw it in my library I decided that I needed to play it first before going into the sequel.

The Bard's Tale (2004 edition, not the classic RPG) - Had little interest in it upon its release. Later learned that it is a comedy with the talents of Tony Jay and Cary Elwes. I could not get it quickly enough. I farking love Tony Jay's voice.

I had a lot of fun with Sims Medieval back in the day. I should've guessed - I've got it on DVD-Rom but my laptop doesn't have a disc drive. I can probably login into Origin and download and play it that way. Or input the code and register it to an account and so on. Thanks!

Once in a while there are special deals on amazon that are a bundle of sub time and fake money for a good price.

And once you finish Trooper I really suggest Imperial Agent or Sith Warrior, both are among the best stories.

More Just Cause 3.  I think I'm doing stuff a little out of order, but not unacceptably so - I've so far avoided doing many of the story missions, and have just been enjoying flying around in the wingsuit.  Then I'd see some place I could wreck, so I'd go wreck it, and I've liberated a whole bunch of places.  There is this funny thing that keeps happening - there are "random event missions" like "Rescue this prisoner being transported" and I head in the direction of that, but before I get there the prisoner transport drives past a liberated zone with freedom fighters who kill the baddies which immediately counts as having rescues the prisoner - I think it's because the NPCs are doing the killing, which means I don't end up with a wanted level I have to lose to complete the task.

And then I finally got around to checking out one of the challenge things, and found it leads to ability upgrades, so I went around doing as many of the wingsuit challenges as I could, and then liberated places to find more, so I could get the "put away the wingsuit when you're low and slow enough" ability, which is wonderful.  I no longer have to go from wingsuit to parachute to grapple in order to land without crashing.

I'll probably branch out and try some of the other kinds of challenges this weekend (The only non-mobility upgrades I've gotten so far are glass grenades and thrust explosives.  Thrust doesn't seem to do much - I might need additional upgrades, or maybe I just need to attach them to lighter things.

Dimensio: The Bard's Tale (2004 edition, not the classic RPG) - Had little interest in it upon its release. Later learned that it is a comedy with the talents of Tony Jay and Cary Elwes.


TIL. I guess I'm going to have to buy a 15 year old comedy RPG remake this week...

LucklessWonder: So far, I've created one character in Sims 4, which the game gave the ridiculously badass random generated name of "Jett Savage" despite him looking like an unholy fusion of me and the ugly ginger bastard who used to run Ain'tItCoolNews:


TIL that not only did Harry Knowles quit AICN but that he did it under multiple accusations of sexual assault. And here I used to feel vaguely bad for making fun of that dude

Hunter4242: And once you finish Trooper I really suggest Imperial Agent or Sith Warrior, both are among the best stories.


I'm probably going to try a Light Side Sith Inquisitor next, but Imperial Agent is under consideration.
