I finally started playing Abzu and it's very calming. Nothing but swimming around and interacting with things underwater so far

Inquisitor: Martyr was half off and I picked it up.

Its very much a Diablo 3 clone, but that's not a bad thing. I'm enjoying it, though I am aware that while I can play it fine on my laptop, I'm going to need to really upgrade it to really enjoy it. But definitely a game I'm going to enjoy.

I am utterly shocked at the lack of LotR mods for Warhammer Total War 2 on the steam workshop.

I think that might be a contractual thing the developers have with GW, no importing foreign assets or something.

I've been putting it off but I'm finally gonna replay Fable. I got the anniversary edition for Xbox 360 and made it half way so I'm restarting on Xbox One

I was getting ready to shudder at how cruddy it would look but I forgot it's the updated Anniversary edition

Not playing but watching several playthroughs of: Control, by Remedy Games.

Absent a miracle in licensing and acknowledgement by the corporate world of the rights of internet-based literature creator groups, this game is the closest thing we'll ever get to a game based on The SCP Foundation.

Sounds like the Bastard offspring of Jedi Knight and S.T.A.L.K.E.R., set in Stross' Laundryverse.

I like it!


I've been playing Space Engineers quite a lot - I caught the "survival and build"-bug from Subnautica, and SE takes that up a few notches. Not to mention where the modding community is taking it ...

I cannot for the life of me figure out how to confederate the rest of the HE factions in WHTW2. We're all on really good terms, above 100 rep (like 120 something) I have worlds most powerful military and own something like 23 towns/cities. Confederation is yellow in the diplomacy screen but they all reject it. What am I missing here?

Some of these games are hard-wired to force you into a military confrontation once you reach a certain power level. It's usually explained in-game as being basically the other leaders' paranoia that you intend to dominate  them.

I locked into Catalyst Game Labs latest Kickstarter.
BATTLETECH: Clan Invasion.
i'm in for $100, but would've dropped $600 if I could swing it.
very excited.

In the past month, I've been able to MeetUp with gaming buddies for two Saturdays of BattleTech fun.

It looks like a Warhammer Fantasy Witch Hunter from the cover art.

Fun game though. And you can play as an Inquisitor as a class - dual wielding pistols though. Although the dungeons do tend to drag little bit.

Grim Dawn > Diablo 3

Ooooor, and hear me out on this, we fight the big gribbly spirit thingy instead?

I can smash crates...and mobs. I love Shockwave.

What build did you go for? Two handed Warlord (Soldier/Oathkeeper) here.

It's honestly been a bloody while, so I can't remember too well. Taking a glance, though... Demolitionist of some sort, I think.

Actually I tried WoW Classic when it launched last week.
My general thought is that nostalgia is great, but it does blind us to the flaws that were present at the time. Poorly laid out quest structure and progression, zero map interface - I can be on board for seeing material that was lost due to expansions over the years but at times, it felt like writing on a touch screen to chiseling stone with a broken animal tooth.

I think that the stone tablet and animal tooth are an easier way to write than touchscreens sometimes.

so i'm actually going to beat Dark Souls finally! just been 5 years since i first bought it, lawl

Edit: poor final boss Gwyn went down really hard, fairly quickly. i'm just too OP, I guess.
hooray! finally beat it.
(click to show/hide)

Now I wasn't gonna bother, but I'm dashing through New Game+ for shits and giggles. It's funny, now that I know/am familiar with most of everything, and remember enough of the alternate routes that I can skip whole levels. Maybe I'll go back for some of those levels before I put this playthrough to bed.... maybe.
