Why the **** do people like Destiny? What a horrible boring skinner box of a game there. I reckon the only reason people play Destiny is because their friends play it. So it's this vicious cycle of playing a terrible, overdesigned, unfun, repetitive, boring game only because all your friends feel the same way and don't wanna stop playing because their friends play as well. Like hanging out with people who do drugs, so you do drugs to hang with them.

game ****ing sucks.

I don't even play destiny...

Just two (top and bottom), but at later stages you'll need two for each to hit triplets and streams.

I really liked playing Terraria, although it can get really grind-y when you're trying to get the PDA.

I have been digging Hyper Light Drifter a lot. I actually play on my Switch. I can't play games on a computer after being in front of one all day.

I remember buying Terreria for my daughter, but never tried to play myself.
It looks like a nice game, 2D adventure with some RPG bits, is that correct?

Been playing Hearthstone and Pokemon TCGO. Don't have a Windows machine, or else I'd play MTGA.

I should boot up my old Minecraft file...

You've been really into the TCGs, eh?  :D

Did you ever end up booting up that old Minecraft file, or has Pokemon TCGO taken over your life?  :eek:

NOT looking forward to Shenmu III anymore after more strongarming from the Epic Games Store. I literally backed to get a Steam Key and physical disc copy as was promised on the Kickstarter page, only to have the devs renege on those promises for a games launcher that didn't even exist before everyone gave them money to fund their project. **** everything about this garbage, and **** the Epic Games Store.

Oh, wow; haha. I completely forgot I already posted it. My daughter and I have been playing the physical game a lot, which has led me to play online a lot more, too.

I did boot the Minecraft file! I had to migrate my account from Mojang (not sure when they switched), but everything was still there.

How is the physical TCG?  Do you play with newly released cards, or OG cards?  I haven't touched them since when they were first released, and rarely actually played the game back then.  :))

Nice!  I played Minecraft exactly once, back in the beta days, if I'm not mistaken.  Can definitely understand the appeal, especially if it's more polished these days.

I have been enthralled with The Coin Game. I dunno how to describe it... it's like a town simulator with an emphasis on arcade ticket machine games? It's surreal and lovely and I cannot stop playing it. I want to live in this weird world where it's always dusk and always your birthday and everyone in town is a robot built by your uncle.

It's in early access right now, and there is a ton of stuff being added regularly. I have no idea where the developer is going with the design of this game, which is something unique about The Coin Game. You get a sense there is something deeper going on, and as new content is added you can explore more of the little town. There is also this weird sense of looming dread, but nothing bad ever happens so it's totally unfounded for now.

Love it, but it can be very expensive if you want to stay competitive. Because the strategy involved is so spread out, there's no one perfect deck, and you can have all kinds of strategy involved but it's up to what cards you've included--which of course comes at a cost (literally). I mostly play with newly released cards. The OG cards would be a pain to use today because they wouldn't be able to compete due to the high energy cost and low attack power. But I still get the OG cards to collect!
When the TCG was new in the States, I was at my dad's Xmas party at work and they bought the kids booster packs. I pulled a foil Gyarados in my first and only pack and I've been hooked since. I started playing, though, only about ten years ago through the online version. You should try it! It's free and they give you starter decks.

I do miss Minecraft. I think I stopped playing when it was still in beta, too.

Ahh, that makes sense.  I would love to collect cards again (no real reason other than I'm drawn to collecting things, lol - so I will be holding off for sure), and of course wouldn't have anyone to play with anyway so won't be doing that.  I never drew any great cards from booster packs, but I did always love the excitement of it.  :D  Jealous of your foil Gyarados!

You should try it! It's free and they give you starter decks.

God damn it, romevi!!  I tried it last night thinking there was no way I'd be interested (a virtual TCG game? why would that be fun? all I ever did with TCGs was collect them, the game never made sense).  I'm totally hooked.  :))  This is exactly what the TCG should have been all along!  I've very quickly realized that the issue I had in my childhood was that I never really understood the rules or bothered to learn them.  I think the digital format works incredibly well for this sort of game, since it makes the barrier to entry so low and accessible.  Also, the whole not needing to spend actual money on cards to build a good deck is a huge help - I was always fearful of that aspect too (which is why I have never tried to get into MTG).

For reference, I have never played any sort of tabletop deck building game, so I have no experience with them (again, always considered them too complicated and involved).

Even worse, you can buy the physical cards and you get codes to redeem in the digital version! A physical booster pack will give you a code for a digital booster pack of random cards online, but stuff like preconstructed decks and special box sets will give you the exact cards you purchased physically. So it's deadly perfect if you're like me and like to play the physical and digital versions!

I never really played any other TCG. I'm waiting for Magic: The Gathering Arena to come to Macs. (And, just like Pokemon, you get codes from physical sets to redeem!)

But yeah, you can do daily battles in the Pokemon TCGO and you'll get rewarded with points and, at times, booster packs. It's a longer method of building decks, but if you're playing casually and don't want to spend money, then it's free cards!  :p

You should not have told me that.

My slow demise will be entirely your fault.

For now I will stay strong and go the slow casual route.  :))

I've started playing the Doom 2016 multiplayer again. The player count is really low, but I don't have too much trouble finding a game in the "Team Play" queue. I was among those who thought it was just "meh" when the game was released, but I like it quite a bit now.
