    In order: Night in the Woods, Bloodborne, Rimworld.

    Rimworld
    I have 177 hours (and counting) in this game. It's really fun, and I hate it a lot. There's nothing quite like getting a good colony running, and there's nothing quite like that entire colony dying to a pack of manhunting chinchillas. Recommended.

    Bloodborne
    A masterpiece of a game. Even though I've done challenge runs long enough to burn myself out on it, I still love it all the same. The fast-paced gameplay, the infuriating difficulty, and the dripping atmosphere are jointly what make me incapable of shutting up about this game. Highly recommended if you own a PS4.

    Night in the Woods
    This game holds a very special place in my heart. The town and the people within it, despite literally being furries, feel more human than the characters in any movie I've seen or any game I've played in years. There isn't much gameplay to speak of but I don't see that as an issue. Buy this game.


    I haven't played Sekiro yet, but I've heard it shares and expands upon a lot of Bloodborne's qualities. I'll update this post after I get around to it.
    Honorable mention to The Beginner's Guide, a more serious game from Davey Wreden, creator of The Stanley Parable.

    A friend of mine in a Discord server for a game brought it up and it looked neat. I decided to check out the community and it was worth it.

    You should try it! It is interesting :P. Also, since Hacknet is on the list now, I recommend hackmud. It isn't all too similar but it attracts similar crowds. Text-based MMO puzzle game with (optional) programming elements. Less waiting for loading bars than Hacknet. Good soundtrack, mostly from Lena Raine but Ryan Ike has contributed (and is contributing) to it a fair amount.

    (P.S.: Since I've made a few posts mentioning hackmud on the site now; I'm not a shill, I just wish more people played it. The Steam charts are sad to look at.)

    Zachtronics also made Opus Magnum, a good entry for the Programming / Logic games section. Plants vs Zombies belongs in misc. here if Peggle does, I think.

    I've been trying to speak it, but I suspect that will come more naturally once I develop enough of a vocabulary to actually form sentences. I never thought about the self-consciousness factor, that's honestly pretty reassuring.

    Спасибо огромное! This is very well written (and helpful! A difficult combination, I find)! I'll definitely be trying these out in the future. Much appreciated. Good luck with the poetry, friend.

    Celeste's Lena Raine worked on (the vast majority of) the hackmud OST. I recommend the game, too. ;)

    Hearing the Transistor OST in its intended setting gives it a lot more power, I think. Hearing In Circles during the encounter with Reisz has stuck with me for many years.

    @Khromier, @Soulmaster and I are trying to learn Russian. It's the first time we've (I've?) properly tried learning a language.

    I was wondering if any of you had advice to offer for learning a new language, even if it isn't necessarily specific to Russian.
    We've been using https://russianlessons.net so far, but other resources would be interesting.

    Спасибо!

    I've been getting back into Factorio and its OST, namely Solar Intervention. It's a very relaxing track (and soundtrack, for that matter) that evokes a unique, vaguely melancholic emotion from within me. It's difficult to describe, but it's a feeling I've strongly associated with Factorio.

    After I got past Ornstein and Smough I was instantly absorbed by the game, and I've played through it quite a few times since then. I'm getting close to burnout though, and a broken sword run probably isn't helping that very much.
    The replayability in the series is absolutely unrivaled by anything I've played before, including several roguelikes.

    Fuck you, Blighttown.

    It really is something special. VaatiVidya is still making videos on the original Dark Souls' lore, and I think that says a lot.

    I've frequently heard of Demon's Souls' item burden. I'm not looking forward to it. I have a PS3 lying around somewhere, so I've been considering buying the game digitally, maybe alongside Dark Souls 2 if my PC can't handle it.

    I'm sad you couldn't experience Bloodborne's DLC, it has some of my favorite bosses from any game. I've been doing a BL4 run, and some of the DLC bosses were both the most troubling and the most fun.

    The round-trip price for me to visit boyfriend (or vice versa) is about $115. Even though it would be temporary, the memories would stick with me long enough for me to call it life changing.

    I chose this name because it's nice and short, and it isn't searchable. It also sounds like sticks if you try to pronounce it.

    I spent most of 2018 exploring the Soulsborne games (Demon's Souls, Dark Souls I (no longer for sale, thanks to the Remaster), II, III, and Bloodborne) and wanted to know all of your thoughts on them. Like them? Hate them? Want to try them? Favorite and least favorite?

    From Software is probably my favorite game dev studio now. I want to say I adore all of the games, but I haven't tried Demon's Souls or Dark Souls II... yet. Bloodborne is my favorite out of the collection (or what I've played of it) because of the familiar but much faster-paced gameplay, with higher risk meeting higher reward. Not to mention they didn't put Ornstein and/or his armor in it.
