  1. What are you playing?

    Massive Chalice really really clicked with me now. Have gotten to around year 230, so I'm not sure how it holds up over repeated playthroughs, but I'm really having fun with it now.
  2. Thanks for the tips. Will check some of them out. Agents of Shield has been on my To Watch list for quite some time, but I still haven't gotten around to it. Trial&Error, The Good Place were completely new to me. Orphan Black and Dark Matter are series I've heard the name of, but haven't known anything about before.
  3. What are you playing?

    Back to playing my Double Fine backlog. Full Throttle: Remastered - It's Full Throttle, and it's Double Fine remastered layer on top of it. Definitely using the switch between remastered and orginal graphics more in this, then in DOTT, since I feel that this game "suffered" more from resolution limitations back then, then what DOTT did. MASSIVE CHALICE - Like with 80 Days, this was one of those games that I felt I liked, gladly recommended, but didn't seem to be able to make any lengthy progress in. But I've gotten longer now then before, and it keeps growing on me with the bloodline and relic features. And as always, there's something very rewarding with solving turnbased combat. It's like violent puzzles or something like that. I still feel, as arrogant as it may sound, that the UI could have used another pass because it feels a bit sparse. I'm still not completely comfortable with building and research being one combined queue, and I would gladly have had a list of events in text, to get a better overview of the events. But there's so many good things about the game: The premise of the events the game is based on. The combat is very satisifying. Especially now that it's been a while since I played XCOM and have stopped directly comparing them. Love the art style. The classes are all very useful, and hybrid classes is a stroke of genius to have come up with. The music, soooo good. Enemies are fun. Aging mechanics really emphazis the value of experienced fighters.
  4. On the topic of TV shows. Is there any new good show, non animated, that's not to damn dark and depressing, and also not about the main characters being an awful person?
  5. @Anemone Read about Chroma Squad some time ago, and it really looked interesting. Haven't bought it yet, but maybe should have a new look at it. @flesk Haven't played To the Moon, but will have a look at the game you recommended.
  6. What are you playing?

    @Anemone Good writeup about The Long Dark. Been a bit interested in it myself, mostly because of the style the game has, but still haven't beaten it. As for what I've been playing myself, I'm off on vacation here, so I've given Skyrim a rest. Been playing a bit more 80 Days instead, on my phone. Off the games I like the most but play the least, this must be a top 3 game for me. Love everything about it, can talk plenty about how well made it is, and there's almost nothing in it that annoys me. Yet I seem to struggle to play it more then in very short bursts with long time between them.
  7. The amount of energy you can spend on being annoyed other peoples lack of organization is sometimes scary. Don't really want to the be guy who works up a fuzz over things that don't really matter, but I think I might be just that guy. :\
  8. What are you playing?

    So, I just had the following game in Rocket League. Scored the first goal. Assisted to the second goal. Managed an Epic Save on our goal line, with 0 seconds left. Scored the winner, 3-2, in over time. Decent game.
  9. Still don't know enough about Prey, to know if it's a game for me. But I really like this song from the OST.
  10. Fantastic Creatures And Where To Find Them It was....fine, I guess. I've never had any real interest in Harry Potter, and barely watched any of the movies, so I rented this without any bigger expectations. Eddie Redmayne was good in his character, as was most of the others in the cast, although I'm not sure why (presumably) paid Colin Farrell a lot of money, and then barely used him. My main problem with the movie, was that in the setting of the magical world, it was a bit too much "anything goes". There was no limit as to how big creatures could big, what they could do, what magic could do and what it could be used to. Which meant that it becamse pretty uninteresting quite soon, and that the characters became more interesting. So it was fine, but not particulary interesting. 3/5 perhaps, even if it's a weak 3.
  11. And in similiar news of great kickstarters, Playdek, the project creators of the utterly failed Unsung Story kickstarter, have decided to just pass all the responsibilities for the project to a new company, instead of owning up to it. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/482445197/unsung-story-tale-of-the-guardians/posts/1952544
  12. I just realized that I've so far own only two games releases this year. Thimbleweed Park - Mostly solid, but a letdown in some aspects. Full Throttle: Remastered - Great, but a remaster. And I've gotten to play Zelda: BOTW and Mario Kart 8 DX on Switch. Is it just me, or have this been a pretty shit year for games so far? It feels like a "between" year, where the developers that interest me are busy with next years games. Genres I usually like are: Short focused story games, preferably with puzzles over combat. Strategy games with turnbased combat. Open world RPG's, or RPG's with lots of choices if they're linear (think Alpha Protocol). Games with good turnbased combat Strategy games, if they don't focus on linear campaign. And of the interesting released and upcoming games that interest me, I'm looking at: Oxygen Not Included Rime Divinity: Original Sin 2 XCOM2: War of the Chosen Battle Brothers Northgard PES2018 It's not nothing, it should be sufficient. But it feels like a worse year then 2016 for games IMHO.
  13. What are you playing?

    Yonder looks interesting. I'm a bit weary about to timeconsuming games now, with crafting and what not, but it's on my radar. Even though it reminds me that I should buy Rime on GOG, and play that first.
  14. Pirates of the Carribean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Non offensive sequel, that worked as passable entertainment, but brought pretty much nothing new to the table, and wasn't really funny either. Well produced, but it felt like they had polished an empty shell.
  15. Didn't think Godzilla was dumb at all. The 1998 version definitely was awfully stupid, but the 2014 version? Not really. Maybe a bit with the rampage through Las Vegas, but otherwise it was solid, pretty true to the source material, and had an appropiate dark and grim atmosphere, with brilliant footage. But John C. Reilly was great in Kong, definitely.
