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.

That is terrifying to hear :shock:

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...

The Surge’s opening cinematic is delightful, I’d advise anyone on the fence to give it a look. Sound up please :D

The Surge and Conan Exiles are April's PS+ games.

I mean, they're taking the piss now. I'm disappointed with this service.
The Surge is really good!

Conan is quite good within its niche. Admittedly it’s a fairly niche niche.

Didn't get time to post it at the time, but finished Deadlight (PC) last Monday. It's the cinematic puzzle/platformer from 2012 that you'll have seen around and recognise from screenshots: http://i63.tinypic.com/339ppwp.jpg It was the game Tequila Works made before they made Rime; its main draw is t...

Re: Work and Jobs and Stuff

The "growing resistance to hard work" is less about people refusing to work hard, and more about the toxic ideation that hard works means instant success, and all those who don't find success simply don't work hard. Which, of course, isn't true. Agreed. Now, to be fair, I grew up in one of the poor...
