Hey folks, what is everyone playing this week? Are you trying something new or returning to a previously played game or genre? How are you liking what you’re currently playing?

        I’m so excited for the multi level trains. They would help me so much

        It’s no big deal. You just play until you realize you made some critical mistake at the beginning, and decide to just yeet a 140 hour campaign so you can fix the problem on the next go around…

        I’m okay… I swear…help

    I’m playing Fallout New Vegas properly for the first time. Started not too long after Starfield released and I’ve been really enjoying myself

      Excellent choice! I wish I could experience FNV for the first time all over again, it’s so good. Got any idea which factions you want to align with?

        So I already got the chip to Mr House. I put up with NCR I suppose. But I do enjoy the Boomers

          Sadly the boomers are a minor faction, but if they did have an ending, it would be entertaining.

    Been on parental leave, for a couple of days. I hooked up the PC to the living room TV and I’ve been casually playing No Man’s Sky. It’s utterly cathartic to fly around space with a 5 day old sleeping, his chest on my belly.

        Thanks! It’s my second, the other is 6yo now. It brings me back to my first parental leave - I played through The Witcher III with my first sleeping on my belly in a similar manner haha

        Congratulations to you and the mom!

        Can’t speak for your interests obviously, but good enough for me spending a good chunk of 10h on it in the last 2 days. I’m a huge space nerd though, so the interstellar travel alone is worth it for me. The storyline is mostly a pretense for exploring, trade, mining stuff, which I don’t mind at all given how pretty it can be. I also really like playing alone lol. I don’t know how long it’ll stick, but it’s scratching an itch for the time being!

          It lost its appeal for me… Every world is similar, or was when I was playing. There was no point exploring.

          Same minerals everywhere, so no point going looking for something interesting either.

          I guess I was hoping it would be more of a “explore and find really rare things, trade them with others at high prices” kind of a thing.

    Just finished the main quest in Horizon Zero Dawn. Looking forward to the frozen wilds next.

      Really wished this got a sequel. Awesome take on the universe and I miss squad based single player games like that.

    Back into Monster Hunter: World on PC! There’s still a small community of players filling up the servers, and it’s been fun.

    Project zomboid. It’s crazy how deep the game is and the mods make it even cooler

    The Resident Evil 2 remake. It’s pretty awesome honestly. I’m actually pretty surprised how good it is. It’s easily my favorite RE game behind the original release of RE4.

    Replaying Grim Dawn for the nth time, finishing the main campaign and then heading into the DLCs. After that, I’m not sure.

    A lot of Kingdom Rush Origins. Working on beating the campaign on impossible. I definitely recommend it if you are a fan of tower defense games.

      Except those last few levels, virtually impossible on impossible mode with the free-tier heroes:-(. I tend to like the original and Frontiers much better, though ironically Origins was one of the most “balanced” of them all, and that was neat to experience as well:-).

      e.g. archer towers should shoot singly, fast, and at high range, while barracks hold the line and are focused more on defense, right? Nope, the former do AoE magic bombs instead, while the latter shoots arrows into the sky. And artillery should focus on offense and hit AoE in as wide an area as possible, right? Nope, there are tanky bears and the shots hit only a narrow space. I’m cherry-picking these examples, but you get the idea - every tower does stuff that overlaps with what you would think other tower types might do instead, which makes for some fun thinking to deal with the foes.:-D

    Just started Dragon Age Origins, I’m still at the tutorial level but it looks like a game I’d enjoy.

    Picked up Skyrim Special Edition for PS4 used a while back for $5. I got the free upgrade to the PS5 version and have been playing Skyrim with my son for his first time. I am enjoying playing it again with better graphics, and he’s loving seeing it for the first time.

      If I ever get back around to it I’d like to make a melee character. Seems like that would really up the challenge while fighting dragons

    Baldur’s Gate 3, I’ve been playing it since it came out and I’m only on my 2nd playthrough. Looking forward to my 3rd playthrough, hopefully by that time I’ll have the heart to be able to play an evil Dark Urge run.
