The thread to talk about the game you're playing right now. Currently, I myself just ragequit Getting Over It With Bennett Foddy again. Once again thanks to Shady and his generosity in the giveaway thread for making my self-torture possible. :)

Just before work I got her down to 5% and was wiped. The solution was to strip down to my undies so I could get the long roll.

I just stayed away from her so she uses her extra telegraphed, extra long wind down animation attacks.

 



Cait's sidequest in FO4 isn't close to as good as Nick Valentine's was.



Gave Dungeon Siege 3 a whirl. Never played the DLC and decided it was time to rectify that.

I still think it's pretty fun after all this time. My original playthrough was as Reinhardt, I remember softening enemies up with ranged attacks, then dropping some area attacks before punching everyone to death. Now I'm giving Anjali a whirl and just somersaulting them all in the face. Or swiping at them with a spear when I can no longer do my sick flips.

The original Far Cry...on the PS3. :)

 

I remember Crysis having a lot of crashes on the PS3 as well as some cut content. Let's see how 'Far Cry Classic' is on the consoles. I remember not being able to finish it on the PC, the mutants eventually made me rage-quit.

Playing whack-a-mole with Windows 10 issues. Booting was starting to take ages so I did a reinstall.

 

Then it installed updates and deleted its own master boot record.

Then the start menu broke.

After I fixed the start menu it upgraded again and messed up the CLR and PowerShell (and all the tools that you're always told to use to "fix" things)

Running an in-place upgrade now.

 

This is easily the worst Windows version I've experienced so far. Everything breaks and since MS decided to "integrate" everything you can't even reinstall them. Only real solution is reinstalling Windows or that in-place upgrade, apparently. What a mess. Let's see what this is going to have broken once it completes.

 

EDIT: didn't break anything. The installer broke, so I'm stuck. Only option left being a clean install, which I just did. Tempted to wipe Windows 10 and reinstall 7 at this point.

Nothing like spending a couple hours trying to catch some hard to catch fish in a game. Not hard to reel in, just very slow, and hard to get to bite lures in the first place - takes forever. In those two hours I caught three of the 30 or so missing from my "you caught these fish" list. Then I cast the line again and the game froze with Noct stuck in standing on a pier animation pose, with splashing fishing noises, but can't do anything control wise. First time it's done that while fishing in hundreds of hours.

 

*turns FFXV off in a huff*

I started my three week holiday with grand designs of playing supposed epics like Breath of the Wild and Mario Odyssey on my sister's Switch before buying my own later on this year. Now, on the final day of my holiday, I can say I've played about an hour of them, combined. Not because of any particular dislike, it's just that I found I'd much rather play co-op games, and so my time was occupied by such titles as Octodad, Guacamelee, Overcooked and Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime.

 

 

EDIT: I also tried that Project Octopath demo. I was hugely sceptical because of the "from the makers of Bravely Default" marketing - I couldn't get myself to enjoy that game at all. But this new effort is actually pretty good. I mean, the writing is still the standard agency-free JRPG fare, but at least there are no insufferable child protagonists, no weird chibi representations in cutscenes, and it has a far more sensible combat system.

Finished Mr.Shifty that I got from Humble Bundle Monthly.

 

It's like Hotline: Miami, but better and not as annoying to play. You won't get hit by something you can't see, all the damn time. Last level or two were annoying though and I could have strangled whoever designed those levels.

Definately not playing that game again, even though the teleporting + melee combat mechanics were fun.

I started a game of Fallout 2, got a bit into it and his F5 to save. Turns out that is the load button. So I lost about an hour of play. :(

 

Ah well, I didn't love my character build anyways.

Finished Shadowrun: Dragonfall a few days ago and am currently processing what I think of the ending sequence. I will say writers were very brave and that's a refresher. I'll surely play it again after I finish Shadowrun Returns which I started a few days ago. After playing Dragonfall it's amazing how unremarkable Shadowrun Returns actually is. Nothing is really bad, but nothing is really good. It's so intensely mediocre that the only games I can think of comparing it to are NWN 1 and 2, sans expansions which are really their own games like Dragonfall.

 

Oh well. I'll probably finish it up just to explore the setting some more which is growing on me still. The games are short so I still feel like I don't have a good grasp on the universe yet. Maybe I need to pick up some additional reading material or something. Regardless after this I'll replay the superior Dragonfall campaign, then I'll probably try Hong Kong.

It's usually best to do them in order

 

Also, there's tons of material out there if you want to read up on the setting.

 

I've even read most of the novels but it's one of my favorite game worlds.

I'm currently only playing mobile games. Hawk: Freedom Squadron and Sky Force Reloaded (already beaten) are two of the more recent ones.

I'm a hoarder.  I keep collecting all these "special" weapons and armor in FO4, but I rarely carry more than 2 or 3 of them with me.  The rest just sit in my storeroom in Sanctuary Hills.

Icewind Dale, with a party of level one Jansens.

 

Surprisingly, it's pretty fun - and pretty competitive. Amazing what a flatter power progression does.

Revisited Age of Wonder, playing head to head with my bro. Tons of fun. Also I’m revisiting TripleA scenarios. Enjoying the NWO 1939 scenario. Actually struggling as the Axis. On the side I am giving hints he to my 10 yr old in Shining Force 2 on Genesis. What a great game!

About to start Nuka World.  I'm not sure which companion to bring along, if any.  Nick Valentine for Far Harbor was obvious.

Picked up a few old games over the holidays(Thief 1,2 and PST: EE) and the single new game purchase since 2015 in Cuphead. Yet I'm just hitting up New Vegas. It just hits that spot of substance with slight personality, not too much to be in your face and tiresome. Perfect game, glitches and all. Am looking forward to checking out Cuphead though, art style and music is right up my alley.

Cities: Skylines. I've spent like two hours tweaking traffic to finally get it going smoothly, but it worked out in the end (somewhat)

I'm in Nuka World and doing that quest for that crazy chick who loves Nuka Cola from FO3, and I have no idea what I'm actually supposed to do.  I can't find these "images" anywhere.

So Shadowrun Returns was a quick diversion and I'm done with it. I really liked Dragonfall though and am itching to replay it, but now I'm itching to play Hong Kong too. Suggestions?

On humble store I bought Mages of Mystralia and Moon Hunters - two excellent games.

I also play Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning - also a gem of rpg and Tangledeep - a gem of rogue-likes, Nine Parchments - gem of unique gameplay and Heroine's Quest: The Herald of Ragnarok - a gem of point and click and rpg hybrid.
