Brother got an Xbox One over Xmas which I of course have commandeered. It's a pretty sweet console. Haven't found a game I'm really into...other than Forza, which is odd considering I dislike racing games...but I just ordered Fallout and Battlefront so that will most likely change.


Also picked up Cards Against Humanity, if that counts!

Rhythm games are my jam right now. The obvious example is Guitar Hero Live, which is the best Guitar Hero/Rock Band game ever with the controls and the way that you have songs available to you with the Guitar Hero TV system. Might not have some of the great anthems that have already been in past games, but it has Biffy Clyro, which is just 10/10 for me. A less obvious example of a rhythm game is Crypt of the Necrodancer on Steam. It's a rogue-like dungeon crawler, with the twist being that every level has it's own song and every action happens on the beat, so you can't stop to take a breather, you always have to do something every beat, which can get really tough when there's tons of enemies around, all with their different movement patterns and effects and the song is really fast. It's just an incredible game, one of my favourites ever and my definite GOTY of last year.

Out of curiosity, which Biffy song is it?

Opted in to the PC beta for Metal Gear Online, the squad based multiplayer component of Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain. Seemed okay, I'm not normally into online shooty stuff, but I had fun for a while.

They have Victory Over the Sun on the disc, and on GHTV they've had Sounds Like Balloons since the game came out and they just added Black Chandelier.

^ GH Live is a LOT of fun. I've been playing on PS4. The new controller is fantastic (though the adjustment to it is brutal) and the GHTV system is great! Only problem we've found is that if you want two players, only one can earn points for their profile as the second player must join the game as a guest. I suspect that has something to do with PSN not allowing two sign ins from the same device simultaneously

Acquired civilization V and have been playing every now and then. It's quite nice, although I do prefer the tiled board look instead of the fancy graphical one.

I haven't actually played these yet but I'm closely looking at the new X-Com game and there's a re-release of the old Atari (?) game "Master of Orion". (think Civilization but in space)

Master of Orion is currently out on Steam as early access, and you also get ported verisions of the original games as well.

Sounds good. Did you try beyond earth by chance?  It's civ in space from the civ makers.

I've played a few recently, though playing on Linux until recently caused more than a few problems.

Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition
-- I made a thread for this, so if you want my opinion you can take a look there. Though, in short, I'd recommend it... even if I am only the smallest fraction of the way through it.

Witcher 2
-- I managed to get this one running, but it had problems with my Steam controller and my attempt at playing the game with a keyboard was an embarrassing failure, so I quit halfway through the tutorial. I returned to it later, managed to get the controller working, and ended up enjoying it. It is really easy to dive in for hours and not realize it, but I am not sure if that is praise since I am pretty sure the lost time goes mostly toward excessive backtracking thanks to the lack of a fast travel system.

Despite having fun with the game, I really can't praise it much at all this early in the game. The combat system is... there? It feels a bit awkward on the controller and is impossible (for me) on the keyboard, but is neither an attraction or a problem. The maps remind me of a sprawling Fable or condensed Kingdoms of Amalur, which is mostly fine except for the lack of fast travel--running the same paths over and over again and getting attacked by the same monsters quickly crosses the line from fun to tedium.

I will give it points for having an interesting story and being genuinely hilarious at times. I am tempted, however, to take those points away for the random narration that sounds like it was out of a Ron Howard film.

Transistor
-- I played a good deal of this game on the PS4 when I still had Plus and I enjoyed it back then. I am enjoying it this time around, too. Great game. Great soundtrack.

Lately I've been playing a lot of The Division and Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 on Xbox One, and Borderlands is one of the Games with Gold for the 360, and it's backwards compatible so I can play it on my One. I also just recently got a PS4 and picked up Dragon Quest Heroes for that and am really enjoying that as well. I'm debating on picking up Final Fantasy 14. I played the trial for it and it was fun, but I'm not sure if I want to get sucked into another MMO and have another monthly fee.

Hey hocho,

What did you think of the division and borderlands? Should I put them on my wishlist and if so why? ;)

I don't get Borderlands' popularity. It is quirky and I like that, but the respawning enemies made it such a grindfest that it got tedious after a short while. Perhaps the problem was that I was playing alone. I have a feeling that playing co-op would go a long way toward making it a heck of a lot more fun.

Morrowind - Got it installed and modded for a graphics overhaul and then I played it for about an hour and haven't gone back to it yet. I streamlined the beginning quests long ago, so I'm to the point that I'm going to have to start traveling around soon and maybe dipping into the main story. Age has made it ugly, but it is still a good game.

Skyrim - I picked this up at random because I enjoyed what time I spent in the original... you know, before getting bored and abandoning it. Equipment console commands have erased the tedium that a fresh start brings, so I am having a good bit of fun with the game. So much fun, in fact, that I have been completely ignoring Morrowind. Fun thing about playing this on the computer: I'm actually able to play in third person now. I don't know why, but when playing on the console I am limited to first person if I want to be able to hit anything. I'm playing the game strictly in third person at the moment and having a ball.

The Vanishing of Ethan Carter - I've played through the first two scenes so far. As the game starts, it warns you that it does not hold your hand and it sticks to that... not even letting you in on how to play the game really or holding you back if you straight up skip a puzzle. Not a bad game. Interesting story so far.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut - The boss fights may have been garbage, but I loved the original version of this when I played it on the PS3. I'm still loving it this time around, though my nostalgia glasses keep tricking me into thinking it looked a lot better than it actually does.

I have also played the original Deus Ex and Just Cause 2, but not enough for me to have much to say about them.

New Fallout! Hopefully it can maintain my sanity through the next couple of days...

For a bit of fun and a good laugh, I recommend playing as a woman and doing the Silver Shroud quests.

Dark Souls 3 just came out. I thought I was going to get to play it tonight with some friends, but not after all. I don't want to play solo before playing in a group, so I don't get to play until after Monday, but I'm keen as hell, I loved the first 2, and I own Bloodborne but haven't got stuck into it yet.

I just finished Human Revolution and wrote about that in another thread. Next, I think I will play some Shadowrun: Dragonfall. While I am not that fond of the gameplay, I am fond of the writing and how you develop your character.

There's a web game called slither.io (there's an app, and if you go to that website on your PC you can play it there) it's like multiplayer snake, where you eat pellets to grow bigger, and if your head runs into another snake's body, you die and turn into pellets that can be eaten, so it's balanced where even the smallest snake can get lucky and kill the biggest ones, and there's various tactics to force other snakes to have to die so you can eat them. It's pretty entertaining.
