Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I'm really impressed by State of Decay 2's difficulty options - I've moved up to Dread Zone/Hard and the tweaks they've made are subtle but work really well to make it a challenging experience and almost a different game. There are the increase in enemy numbers of course, including more super-zombie...

Re: Games Completed 2019

I love the huntress when I'm tired because you don't really have to worry about aiming all that much. Such a great game! Nobody else playing it? It's such a small community with fairly diverse tastes, and with there no longer being any need to jump on a game when it comes out, it's rare that people...

Re: Virtual Reality

"They're coming outta the goddamn walls!" :lol: Nice! I have a bunch of VR games in my backlog, I must make a sustained effort to play them soon. It's a pity you weren't impressed with Superhot - I think it's the seminal VR game. I do need to go back and give it another go though - I got the trophy ...

Re: Games Completed 2019

State of Decay 2 (PC) It took me quite a while to figure out how to interact with the many interleaved systems here, but this eventually turned into a very enjoyable experience. I abandoned my first game after ten hours or so when I lost my doctor and the zombie hordes seemed insurmountable (I hadn...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Settling into the loop in State of Decay 2 now. I have moved my community into a mid-sized base, which should put paid to morale and food-based issues, and let me focus on clearing out the Plague Hearts, of which there are ten. I've only done two yet, and they get stronger the more you destroy. I st...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

You know what might be pretty cool? If one of those open world survival games were to tie their difficulty settings to specific seasons. Summer would be Easy, with long days, short nights and plentiful natural resources. Spring and Autumn would be two different types of Normal, with equal day/night...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I've been playing Salt , "an open-world exploration game where you sail from island to island looking for loot and new discoveries!" which was on my radar a few years ago and popped up on Steam yesterday for EUR 3.75. It's meant to be gentle and relaxing, but it has 22 minute day cycles, which means...

Did you see that DLC that came out recently?
Looks quite 'Shmup-y' :lol: but really good.

I haven't finished the full game yet; I must go back to it one of these days.

Rogue Fable III (Ranger -elf) https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steam/apps/956450/capsule_sm_120.jpg I'm a sucker for these simplified roguelikes. Streamlined but with enough strategic depth to keep things interesting. My favourite since Golden Krone Hotel.. Have you tried Heroes of Hammerwatch? It’s...

Re: Videogame Deals

State of Decay 2 seems to be EUR 14.99 on the MS Store.

Did anyone around here pick it up at launch or since? I was looking forward to it but got cold feet because it sounded absolutely identical to State of Decay 1.

Hopefully with a bit of downtime you'll be able to get back to gaming.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I've been 'crunching' for the last six weeks or so, so I'm feeling too mentally exhausted to start into Sekiro - I played it briefly the opening weekend and along with the comments I've read on here, I'm starting to doubt if I'll ever be ready to start it. Instead, I've started playing Mutant Year Z...

Omega. The last letter of the greek alphabet. The End. I was driving home one night a few years ago when a neon sign rose up out of the inky blackness like the motel sign in Psycho. The Omega Retirement Home. :shock: The existential horror was strong that night. (Jan) Starlink :Battle for Atlas - P...
