For those playing XCOM2 and who have already encountered all the Chosen, I am adding my three Chosen in the spoilers below, if you want to compare :)

Spoiler

Mind you, the Assassin has "leveled up" as well now and also returns fire on missed shots.

Yeah, the Assassin dazed Jane, the girl from the first mission, and stole a bunch of information from her on one of my missions. She gave a nice little speech about her while doing it. It was a cool moment. :p

 

The Chosen are definitely interesting.

Decided to start a replay of NWN2 of all games because... well, I guess I want to get to MotB and I dislike just starting it straight away because I'm weird like that.

 

But oooh boy... the NWN2 OC. Forgot about the voiceacting and characters, and the glory of NWN2 D&D low level combat. My god... It's not pretty.

Save often. Use multiple save slots. I had a bug that made the sidequests in the swamps fail even though I had completed them. Last save was a long time before, so I just quit the game in disappointment.

The beginning of the Witcher 1 is pretty weak, it doesn't really get interesting until Chapter 2 starts (the city). So try and stick with it.

 

And potions are important.

So, people with XCOM 2... What the hell's in there to make it almost 60gig deal (only slightly smaller than GTA V)? I'm retired and senile before that thing's downloaded.

Enjoy the original... Witcher 2 & 3 dropped almost everything I liked about the series' style & gameplay.  That doesn't mean to imply that W2 & w3 are bad, it just means they could almost pass for a modern Golden Axe sequel instead of Witcher sequels.  Witcher 1 was superb. Also Geralt doesn't look or behave like the same person in either sequel; different face, and a lost sense of pragmatism.

**Well what do you know... They actually made a modernized sequel to Golden Axe:

Alright, gonna take a couple seconds to type up some thoughts on what I've been playing, although it's hard to pull myself from my little free time to do so:)

 

Started XCom 2 WOTC like a lot of people here and have been enjoying it so far.  Love the little and bigger changes.  I'm certainly not too far into it as I played through the tutorial again, so really I've only met up with the reapers and skirmishers, however as of right now, loving the skirmishers.  Would like to put more time in but had inlaws here over the weekend and my oldest just started kindergarten, so life has been a little crazy.

 

I have put in about 2 hours into Mario + Rabbids and will say so far it's been great fun.  Although it starts off illustrating and informing the player of how a turn-based game works, probably new to many fans of Mario or Rabbids (I've never played a Rabbids game), it appears to have quite a bit of depth if you want it to.  With different weapons (of the same class, but with different attributes/abilities), a skill tree for each player character, and numerous playable characters, this game has a good bit to offer for sure.  I will say, coming from XCom, you have to kind of get used to the movement in this game because you're allowed to move ALOT in your turn and you're selling your team short if you're not taking advantage of that.  And I will say, this game looks good.  For being on a handheld, for the animations within the game, and the little details it has, it looks very good.  I believe right now, I'm in what they consider world 1-6 or 1-7, but really, really enjoying the game so far.  Good purchase for sure and a great game for the switch.

Still playing SWTOR (Jedi Knight campaign). The new companion is amazing.

Started Furi (boss rush; got with Absolver on GOG). 3 bosses down, ? to go.

1. Going to the swamps at night is not recommended (a lot of enemies, 2-3 bosses);
2. Obtaining Red Ribbon (drawners-repelling talisman) is preferable before chapter 5.

I think mostly audio files for Bradford and the Chosen, so they can blabber you to death. One of my gripes with the expansion is that they seem to have taken a gripe people had (Bradford being too chatty and annoying) and while they have an option for less help chat, and there is a mod "Quiet Bradford", they decided to get back on people's nerves with even chattier Chosen. Hoping for the "Quiet Chosen" mod to be released soon.

On a serious note they added more of everything. And the final install size shouldn't be 60GB, it's just that the way they integrated everything into the campaign, and reworked quite a bit of stuff, the whole installation needs to be patched. And the way Steam handles install and download, that means a huge patch.

On a different XCOM note:
I still think Jane Kelly should get her own XCOM spin-off. She has turned out so much more iconic and awesome than any other character in XCOM 2

XCOM2:

Went to defend a resistance haven from an ADVENT attack. While the squad was being briefed on their way there, Central informed us that a Chosen was leading the raid. And he was right. In the immortal words of Admiral Ackbar: "It's a trap!".
Resistance fighters were doing their best to keep their people safe.
And this was no normal raid. The most "rank and file" troop the aliens had send was a Muton. Other than that, a Faceless, three Berserkers, four Chryssalids, and three Codex. And on top of that of course: The Hunter.
The squad rushed to reinforce the resistance fighters. Together they made quick work of the first group of enemies and evacuated half the civilians. But the other half was surrounded and had a Faceless in their midst.
And while the majority of resistance fighters, alongside the XCOM squad took out the aliens, one fighter climbed onto the roof of their shack and started shooting the Chosen. Hit, 6 DMG, rinse, repeat. When the last of the aliens were taken out (4 civilians were killed by a Codex and a Berserker), the resistance fighters rushed the Chosen and caught him in a crossfire.
the Hunter went down without any XCOM operative ever having a chance to shoot in his general direction.

I had a resistance raid early on where the Hunter showed up, and things went sideways fast. I lost a soldier, and 11 out of 16 civilians died. There were no resistance fighters. I did manage to kill the Hunter and hobble through the mission. There were Lost out there too, they actually helped draw some enemy fire.

 

edit: Mixed up my bad guys. :p

I bought Sunless Skies on early access.  Much brighter than Sunless Sea, but the bare bones appear to be largely the same.  Always tough for a company to make a sequel that adds something good without changing something else that works.  I have high hopes for it, but I'll probably shelve it until full release.

Was in a mission and hacked an ADVENT terminal. As a reward I got to double my research speed. Awesome, since I was researching Plasma Weapons which were an 18 day project or so.
A couple of day later one of the remaining Chosen - probably the Hunter - managed to sneak a saboteur into the Avenger and blow up part of the research lab, cutting my research speed by 50%.
I sent a covert ops team to find a way into his citadel. Blow up my crib? I'll come blow up yours.
