What Game(s) Did You Last Get and What Are You Playing?

Recommended Posts

League of Legends and OGame today so far. I hope to play some Assassin's Creed: Unity tonight when I have more time...

If you have a PS4, get Horizon. Been playing it daily.

So I've noticed this thread's regulars all follow similar trends.

 

RPG is constantly dealing with psycho exes.

Muggi reminds us of the joys of polygamy.

Saq is totally oblivious to how much chicks dig him.

I strike out every other week.

Kalphite wages a war against the friend zone.

Randox pretty much stays rational.

Etc, etc

One of the blokes I work with picked up a PS4 recently that came with it, wasn't his sort of game, so I picked it up for 30 bucks, which is a great price for as-new here in Australia. I've installed it, but I've still been smashing FF, I might look into it tomorrow when I have the day off.

The game starts out pretty generic for the first hour or so, however past that, once you get out the first area and to the robots, it is amazing. It all is connected together really well, better than anything since AC II (if you don't count the Witcher 3, which is also in its own league). The story, the combat mechanics, the graphics, separately they are just good, nothing too special, but it all put together creates an amazing atmosphere, which is even more amazing considering it is the first title of that kind from Guerrilla Games, which previously only made Killzone FPS-es.

 

Haven't lost sleep for a game for a really long time, however did lose for that.

Downloaded a 32gb update to Halo Wars 2... Apparently there's been a new campaign series of missions which I gotta play now lol. I'll try to get at that sometime this week if I have time :) .

I logged in to this forum solely to find some hint as to what my minecraft login was, because I still have that installed for some unknowable reason and their account recovery is garbage.

 

The reason for this renewed interest in that nightmare factory of a game is because I am an adult that has lost control of her life and what better way to celebrate than with lego

 

Also sonic mania is pretty neat. Unrelated, that

 

and now i will vanish into the aether once more

Finally decided to get Medieval Engineers. I've been watching it since it came out (I was already playing Space Engineers for a while at the time), but the game has really taken a long time to start maturing. I finally found a youtube series on the game I actually like (by RadioMan03 if anyone is interested). The building system is better, and I can approach design from a clear direction (ground up).

 

Anyway, it's actually started to develop into a pretty fun game, though my inner engineer desperately wants more tools for building contraptions (mostly proper gears and a pulley, and proper tracks for cart wheels).

New Nioh DLC dropped today. It's pretty good. Enjoying it so far. Has a new mode comparable to GRs in Diablo, so i'm gonna be hooked on it for a while. Injustice 2 also dropped a new update. Also pretty good from a single player perspective. And i've actually been playing some RS again lately. It's actually pretty fun. But i want to get a new PC before i really start playing again. My laptop is [bleep]ed and keeps overheating every 15 minutes.

Have the same issue with my laptop. Luckily got some contacts and am getting a brand new 14-inch Razer Blade for around 60% market price.

 

So far, playing CK2 as always. Worked my way from a single count to a king of Suomi, Lithuania and Rus and reformed the Suomenusko.

My laptop is still really good. I mean, i used to play Skyrim on it at fairly high graphics, along with a ton of other games. There's just so much dust in the air here that the fan can't keep up anymore. I need to get it cleaned, but i've been so lazy. Hoping to start ordering parts for a new PC this weekend.

My laptop is extremely old and even in it's prime was pretty bad for games lol. I really think I'll be getting a new laptop come Black Friday, and hopefully it can play something other than ArenaScape and Diablo 2 when I actually go travel lol....

And my laptop doesn't wanna handle it.

Rise of the Tomb Raider was on a good sale, so I picked that up. I enjoyed the first game a fair bit, and so far I'm liking the second one. That said, the increased focus on scavenging/crafting is an unwelcome one to me. It reminds me too much of equipment crafting in far cry 3/4. It's a chore.

 

This is also the first game I've gotten a chance to run in DX12. Performance gains aren't huge, but they're there. The post process AA really struggles, and the final solution has been to use virtual super resolution to mimic the in game SSAA (at x2 because that's all my RX 480 can really manage), and then set the game to use the SMAA filter. x4 SSAA would be better (I can't believe after all this time the computer industry has come full circle back to SSAA, or that the hardware is now powerful enough to use it), but this works (I went back and checked, and I can manage x4 SSAA in the 2013 Tomb Raider).

 

I've also ended up changing drivers a couple times because AMD loves to break things, and the trick is to find the islands of stable drivers in a sea of nonsense (the most recent island being 17.7.1, which I am now using).

Played some Diablo 3 last night for the first time in a while. Didn't play that much last season just because the build i use didn't get much love, but since everything was buffed this season i thought i'd give it a go and see how things look now. Managed to clear a 97 (my previous highest was 95) with my Crusader, and still had about 2 and a half minutes left. Figured i'd just go balls deep and try a GR100. Managed to clear it easily with over 2 minutes left, and only 1 death (honeslty not even sure how that happened). The GRift itself was kinda shitty too. Not very favorable mob set. I figure with minimal amount of luck i can push to 105 quite easily. Might even be able to go to 110 if i am willing to farm a bit. I am low on Paragons though. Sitting at only 1370, i think i might have to grind a few Paragons in the near future before i start pushing for 110.

I finally decided to get Viscera Cleanup Detail. It's been on my radar for...I guess years now. I got Santa's Revenge a while back, and I decided to give it another spin the other day but it's too early. So despite never having even completed that little stand alone in at least 2 years of having owned it, I got the whole game instead, and it's pretty fun.

 

Or maybe that's the wrong way to put it. It's relaxing in the same way as any game with repetitive play can be, and finishing a level is immensely satisfying. So it's not fun in an excited to play way, and I find it can be rather overwhelming as you start out in a given level, but damn, when you drop 3+ hours getting a level clean, fixing the damage, and getting things organised...it feels good.

 

Plus I love doing the whole CSI thing at the start of the level (where you basically work out how everyone got killed for bonus points).

 

Also, I'm not sure if it was intentional or not, but playing the game I feel like I'm less a cleaner in the janitorial sense and more in the criminal sense. That is, I'm pretty sure my services are being engaged to cover up these 'incidents' entirely. At least, I like to think that. Helps me take pride in doing a good job.

I've owned KOTOR 1 and 2 for a while now. Started on the first game a while back but got distracted by other things. One of my friends saw it in my library and told me I should give it another shot, but the first game crashed and I forgot the fix, so I started into the second game instead and it's fantastic (the first level is a bit long though). It's been a long time since I got hooked on a game this bad (the last games to do it were Fallout New Vegas and Skyrim. Games that hook you so bad you'd forgo sleeping and eating if you could).

 

On a side note, I've tried to get up to speed with some of the surrounding lore while trying to dodge spoilers, and god damn I'd forgotten just how stupid some of the EU lore is. I'm not a big fan of comic books stories, largely because the stories tend to keep escalating past the point where they devolved into absurd nonsense that no longer has much bearing on the original source material or ideas. See the endless clones of palpatine or the Sith Lord who led the Sith to Victory over the Republic, only to withdraw from public view so that he could found an entirely new empire to reconquer the finally victorious Sith Empire he was still Emperor of. Too much of the EU lore came from comics that did that. Plus you had to set your story like 6000 years before or 2000 years after the first movie if you wanted to make new lore that didn't tie into existing material.

Completed AC: Syndicate and playing Watch Dogs 2. Quite fun. The zipline thing was better in Arkham games, but overall was impressed.

 

Watch Dogs 2 is quite good. A GTA clone, but the hacking system and specially the RC stuff is fun.

 

Currently trying to get into the LAN party with my mates back home. 6 of them playing in local LAN and me trying to enter with Tunngle or Hamachi... So far nothing has worked.

Tried Wildlands PvP today. Shit was tough, but really fun. I can see myself getting into it easily.
