What are you playing?

For me lately it has been For Honor on PS4. Something about sword fighting can really get my heart going more than any FPS I've played.

    Basically nothing but League and Dota. For some reason nothing holds my attention anymore. Sometimes I'll start up cheesey runs of Dark Souls 1. Sometimes I'll play a round of two of PUBG. I play Hearthstone when I only have access to my phone or only have a few minutes to play. But something about MOBAs just fucking consumes my brain I swear. I think it's something about meta-gaming and competitiveness. I love build diversity and whatnot. I don't like the raw-skill element to competitive shooters, nor do I like complete min-max fests in more complex games.

    I'm a one trick on League, I only play Vel'koz support. Like "4k games on him and maybe 100 games on my next most played hero" one trick.

    In Dota I've been back to spamming Necrophos because I love the new Ratboi set that got released for him. Friendship with Dagon ended, Radiance is my new homie.

    Oh, I guess I'm also really excited that Handlock is back in the meta on Hearthstone.

    I recently got Borderlands 2. I'm currently in the "Meh" category. Not the best game I've ever played, but not a waste of time either. I haven't played with friends, though, so that might change.

    Apart from that, I've been replaying Half-Life 2, which is always fun. I always do it about twice every year.

      I played Borderlands to death, both one and two. It is pretty fun, but it was a lot more fun playing with my then-girlfriend. The game is easy enough that one person can carry a team of two, but she still helped out. Plus it's more fun with two characters being around to use their special ability. Never really got into the online scene for it though.

      Yeah, Borderlands didn’t really age well. I recently tried replaying the pre-sequel, and I think the biggest thing is that the shooting feel doesn’t hold up to the newer games that we’ve been seeing. Bullets don’t feel like they have much impact and the guns don’t feel as weighty and satisfying to shoot as say Destiny to compare to another looter shooter. I would say the humour has become a little dated too.

    I've been playing Far Cry 5 but not so much because of anything great about the Far Cry series, but more because my best friend loves (a) Far Cry and (b) co-op multiplayer. So it makes her happy, so I play it. Which makes me happy because even mediocre games are good when played with friends.

    Otherwise I am still playing WipeOut VR and will shortly be playing Pixeljunk Monsters 2 (which I only just found out exists and am very excited about - I keep a PS3 purely for PJM 1)

        WipeOut 2097 was such an iconic game in my life - it came out just when I was at university and me and some of my to-this-day best friends (including the girl I'm playing Far Cry with) would spend hours and hours racing those tracks to that soundtrack. If one day I hear the opening notes of We Have Explosive and my right thumb doesn't involuntarily twitch as if pressing a throttle button then I'm probably dead.

        WipeOut VR is the game which justified my whole PSPro+PSVR purchase, which I could only just afford and I'd spent the previous few months worrying I should have bought something more sensible instead, like a new vacuum cleaner or similarly useful but dull purchase.

        It's so, so good. Even with the mild motion sickness it engenders in me (I thought I had my VR legs but it turns out that hypersonic antigrav racing is a whole different league)

        Hopefully it will make it's way onto other platforms eventually.

        Yeah, it's pretty good. Someone can join your game and you can play the story stuff - which is new, previous FC multiplayer was just liberating outposts and so on. When they leave you just carry on from where-ever you were when they left. The visiting player gets to keep any perks, weapons and money they picked up, but not story progression.

        I personally have felt there's enough. But I've probably only put about 10 hours into it so far. The only complaint I have is that there's some irksome bugs when trying to select things and the auto-save behavior could use some improvements. But for the price I think is worth it if you know you liked what you saw. That being said some elements of the game lack the depth you might see in similar games. For example after you've played the main campaign you likely understand what building patterns and choices are optimal.

        If you do decide to play it. I hope you have a good time.

    After the whole Bethesda/Fallout nonsense this week, I decided to go back and mod (again) Fallout 3. It's my favorite FO game, and the last time I played it (about 5 years ago) I was still a bit of a noob at modding, so it wasn't as stable as it could've been. This time I've decided to rebuild my old setup bit by bit, checking for conflicts and patching stuff as I go. It's gonna take a while, but once I'm done I can just make a copy of the installation and not worry about modding it again :)

    Besides that, I should really finish Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice. I've been putting it off for months now.

        The audio design is exactly why I stopped. It's brilliant, so much so that it felt wrong to play with regular speakers—like I was missing a crucial part of the experience. I had only some super cheap headphones at that point, so I decided to stop and go back to it after I got some decent ones. Months later, I haven't bought a decent headset for PC use, and the best thing I've got right now is a pair of earbuds... I think I should give those a go, otherwise the game will be collecting (virtual) dust on my library for who knows how long.

      I keep putting of finishing Hellblade too. Not 100% sure why but part of me thinks that the story/setting are so great that it's a bit overwhelming, like I want to savor it so it never quite ends.

        Agreed. I'd say it's one of those games that you have to sit for a few hours with, and lose yourself in it. Definitely not one that you can just pick up, play for 30 minutes, and leave.

    I'm playing Uncharted 4 for the first time. I haven't played any other Uncharted games, or anything similar. I'm generally an MMO and online MP player.

    My staple games are EVE Online, ST:O, WoW, Minecraft Realms, and racing Sims, for perspective.

    I don't even have words for how blown away I am by this game! Like... Literally can't come up with adequate adjectives. The storyline, the fluidity of the movement, the twists and turns, and the sheer size of the world along with the art/graphics regularly just leaves me stopping where I am in the game and staring for a few minutes in awe.

    I'm hooked. I want more games like this now. If anyone has PS4 suggestions that are similar to Uncharted 4 please do tell (only exception is I'm not really into fantasy/dragons/etc and prefer reality or space/future based styles).

When you and an opponent are pretty evenly matched and it all comes down to taking some crazy risk, or executing a battle so perfectly you win the whole game off of it, there's nothing else like it in gaming for me.

    I haven't really been into any games since Super Mario 3 or Street Fighter 2, but last year or so I got into Rocket League and I'm totally hooked!

    Sometimes I need to take a few days off because the matchmaking frustrates me, but overall I have found it to be an extremely positive, relaxing way to kill some time. I often see reports of toxic chats and whatever, but I rarely see that sort of business.

    One issue with Rocket League is that its really fun when you suck at it, but as you get better and your matches get better, it can be frustrating if you don't practice / learn some tricks / know how to rotate, etc. Once you're past the middle section and you're up with fairly good people the game is extremely fun again.

    I play on a bootcamp'd 2013 macbook pro using an external monitor. I have a desk fan blowing onto my laptop to keep it cool (whether this helps or not, I have no idea.. it makes me feel better). The game runs great with some tweaks.

    I've been hooked on Cultist Simulator for the past like 2 days. It's a crazy Lovecraftian 'card game' about founding a mystic cult in the 1920s. It doesn't really teach you how to play, it's up to you to even figure out the full mechanics of the game. I've made a OneNote document that I'm using to make notes of some of the stuff I've discovered.

    It's easily the most interesting and unique game I've played in a long time, but it's definitely not for everyone. It's very story heavy and if you skip a lot of the text it will be nearly impossible to figure out.

    Expect to die a lot. In my latest run I finally have a well established cult and am successfully using my cultists to go on expeditions to steal artifacts and shit.

    I do have a few complaints. The UI is a pile of hot garbage: cards definitely spawn directly behind only cards, making them practically invisible. Which is particularly bad if it's an illness or affliction of some kind with a time limit. Other times cards will spawn in front and mess up your organization by bumping other cards to the side. Finally it's not always clear when resources are permanently consumed. I lost some of my core stat cards in what I thought was a bug, but was just me not realizing they were permanently consumed by the action I was taking.

    Anyway, I recommend checking it out if you're on the fence and like weird games. But for the love of god, don't read too much about it. A major part of the fun is discovering how to play.

        That being said, it's good that you haven't looked too closely. One of the major themes is just figuring out WTF is going on. If you start learning too much about it, you risk spoiling that part.

It's not like Skyrim, where you can still have fun role-playing and exploring.

I feel second hand embarrassed for people who dance. I should not like beat saber, I was hesitant to even try it.

    I decided to buy it on a whim and I love this game. I really really love it. You can mod it and put in levels built by other people. I still don't understand dancing, but there are player-made levels where they try to make you move in a dance-y way and it's fun and that's the closest I'll ever be able to get to understanding it. I really wish I was more into music and dance, then I would love this game even more. It's fantastic exercise as well. After playing it for an hour I'm completely soaked in sweat.

    Right in these days I'm replaying Pillars of Eternity with the expansion. I just got around to finish the main campaign (not completing the final step of the main quest) and went on the White March DLC.

    I was remembering it quite shallow and honestly I till think it is, but I'm doing it just to explore it all before starting a campaign in Pillars of Eternity 2.

    Before that I was playing Farcry 5 but more like 30 minutes at a time. It's quite monotonous after a while and the story in every Farcry is never that good.

    I also dropped some dime for Paladins, a free to play alternative to Overwatch that is still in alpha (maybe beta now) but it's a while that I don't play.

    From time to time I log into an unofficial WoW server because I really don't feel paying the monthly subscription to Blizzard to just play a couple of evening per month.

    I always have Civ6 installed but I don't even remember why at this point. Along with some other 4x game (Stellaris was the last i think).

    Oh, if you like light roguelike with a strong arcade/action side, try Wizard of Legend. Definitely worth having. Also, it support local coop!
