I just bought No Man's Sky from GoG seeing as how it is on special.

All I need is a computer that will run it :))

Still just playing Minecraft, sadly ...

I miss Minecraft. Last time I played was in 2011.

I wonder how my underground castle is fairing...

It is running in the background now, with me standing safely near a skeleton farm.

Got so many bows, arrows and bones I don't know what to do with them.
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But that’s incorrect. It’s in HHKB’s slogan, but when America’s cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

Just finished Nier: Automata and I'm already thinking of replaying through the whole thing again. Such a great game and the soundtrack is just absolutely on point.

I just wish the devs/publisher would get off their butts and patch the PC version. There are so many problems with the PC port.  :mad:

Tried PUBG and really disliked the boring formula that basically forces you to hide in some hole and snipe like a little ***** instead of actually playing and having fun in the game. I don't really understand why this game is popular promoting boring cautious game play over fun action.

Also the developer seems like a little snowflake crybaby.

Yes. I LOVE Daggerfall! I played it a year after it was released. It was my first CRPG that I played on my first computer I ever owned. At the time I had only played JRPGs on consoles. It was the one that hooked me into The Elder Scrolls series.

Waiting on the release of Monster Hunter Stories for the 3DS. I played the demo hella and completed it so now I have nothing to do :c

I'm also thinking about getting a new console this year.. maybe PS4 or Switch. Leaning more towards PS4.

Replaying Fallout 2 over the weekend, not too far in yet. But damn did I have some rose-tinted glasses on regarding the super frustrating combat. HOW THE **** can I miss a giant ant with a spear 12 times in a row? How is that even possible?

But the Fallout 2 Restoration patch that adds dropped content and dialogue is excellent thus far. A seamless and welcome addition to the game for sure.

I'm currently playing Batman - Arkham Knight on my xbox one s.
I get why some people hated it because of the Batmobile, it's very different from Arkham Asylum & Arkham City (man i loved City so much), but honestly i still enjoy it. It's different but still very good.

So I started to replay Shadow of mordor in preparation for the new game/ I never actually finished the game. Annnnnd I don't think I'm interested in playing anymore of these. I do plan to reach the end of the game but when it first released I guess the shine of a new game distracted me from how dull everything is. Nemesis system is still kinda cool in like a yeah that was a great idea 3 years ago kinda way.

There was an open beta on PC recently, it played realllllly smooth.  I played on PS4 last time, but am waiting for the PC release.  It released on consoles today, have to wait until 10/24 for PC...

I got a 3DS about a month ago and finally got around to hacking it. Lengthy process took me a good hour and a half. So many steps.

So anyway now I've a whole ton of stuff to play. So far I've been doing a bit of River City Ransom Tokyo Rumble, Rhythm Thief, Super Mario 3D Land and Sega 3D Ages.

Personally I couldn't get into D1 as much as some did, though I appreciated its artistic design. D2 clicked right off the bat. Really enjoyed my time with it, and also so far with the expansion (though I think the base game has better gameplay thanks to the wider variety of powers and larger map sizes).

One nice feature of D2's New Game+ is it combines both Emily and Corvos powers, which is great for those who wanted to try other powers but liked playing the same character. Emily has some pretty unique powers, so for my runs I chose her.

I would be playing Gundam Versus as of this past weekend, but my PS4's HDMI seems to have borked Saturday night...

Currently doing a new playthough of FO4 on the Xbone to try out the mods on console and for that comfy couch playing. Feel like a fish out of water on my PC playthrough because I hadn't touched that one in a good while.

Probably going to start up NeiR:Automata on my computer soon so I can have my singleplayer story/character-heavy game that'll keep me engrossed while I can't play P5 at the moment.

Completed Dishonored: DotO non-lethally. On the whole wasn't as satisfying as the base game but not bad either. It's firmly in the 'expansion' category with what feel like progressively more linear map areas—especially the re-used level from the base game (albeit heavily restyled and at a different time of day) which sections off most of the original level.

Power-wise wasn't that fond of the more difficult to aim Blink-esque Displace, which manages to be more finicky than Emily's Far Reach (which I quite liked). It serves a unique purpose however, since you can mark a spot for later teleportation—provided you're in visual range.

I could imagine returning to replay the earlier missions in the Upper Cyria district since it feels like the largest map and offers more gameplay variety in one when combined with the optional bounty 'contracts'. Visually still pretty.

Been playing Overwatch since release and i don't think i'll be stopping anytime soon.
Other than that, currently installed games are...

Outlast 2,  Hellblade : Senua's Sacrifice, Counter Strike : Global Offensive

Btw check out these screenshots of Hellblade i took the other day with Ansel.

Yeah, Hellblade is a looker, especially the rendering of the protagonist from screens I've seen. Picked up Cuphead and it's kicking my ass :)) Taking it at a slower pace helps but after a dozen attempts you tend to try and speed through it which can lead to mistakes... Art design and animations are top notch though, which is mainly why I was interested in it. There really isn't anything like it.

One other thing is the default mappings for controllers are a bit finicky. You can't really dash easily while shooting with the defaults so I mapped shoot to the left trigger so I can keep it held down. I found this helped for the third transform of one of the bosses which turns into a slot machine as it requires both jumping quickly over/under moving obstacles while continually shooting. I'll see how I like it for other levels.

If you have a Switch and an extra $15 think about buying Golf Story. It's a short play (took me about 16 hours) and it's incredibly fun. I don't know how the thought of a golf-centered RPG came about but I am happy it did. Weird game, but incredibly charming and wonderfully stylized. The Switch is really establishing itself as a healthy platform for indie games and developers. If that's your thing I would highly suggest picking one up.

I am now playing Stardew Valley for the second time on the Switch after my initial playthrough on PC.
A bunch of stuff. Someone teach me how to properly solder.

Btw does the Switch allow for copying screenshots to a PC? Seem to remember someone saying you could only share via Twitter/Facebook which sounds pretty restrictive.

They release Stardew Valley on Switch?! Play it last year for 100+ hours on steam. How was the experience playing it on switch (controls, interface, etc.)?
