[Official] What are you playing?



  • Still playing Azur Lane on my pc and tablet. It's the first mobile game that had me hooked more than 6 month (since its global launch last year). The current main event is Winters Crown which brought a new story, maps, ships, skins, gear and more. So the grind never stops and is fun as ever to experiment with new fleet compositions. Also, these skins are irresistable.

  • Watching the Allies play Anthem together made me crave looter shooter (shlooters?) again, so I'm gonna out The Division that PS+ gave me (thanks, Sony). I'll talk about it later.

    Wanna try out Destiny 2 but it kept failing to launch on my PS4 so I uninstalled it, no time to deal with such nonsense. Also, still waiting for my... My Hero One's Justice copy to arrive.



  • I started playing Divinity: Original Sin (1) on PS4 and I like it quite a bit. I actually enjoy this a lot more than the snooze-fest that was Pillar's of Eternity.

    Also the first game in years and years that has a bit of an Ultima 6 and 7 vibe. Reminds me of those old RPGs and (of course) the old Infinity Engine games.



  • Played a bit of The Division (big download size, took way longer than expected). It's good but not nearly enough to keep in my currently crowded gaming landscape (too many games to play, holy shit). I enjoyed it though, the gunplay feels pretty good and it still looks beautiful too.



  • @toxe Divinity Original Sin is a great game, and is surprisingly funny at times.



  • @inustar The main critique that I always read about D:OS is that people don't like the humor but honestly so far I don't see why. I think it's fine.



  • Hey @SabotageTheTruth , My Hero One's Justice is pretty awesome!

    Played it for a couple of hours and my first impressions is that it's more fun than it should be. The arena combat gameplay is quite simple, but in a good way. The controls seem a bit weird at first, but after getting used to it (which happens quickly), I'm already pulling some sick moves and combos. It's not a huge budget game (the levels are pretty small, and some parts of the levels doesn't look good), but they got the cool moves right. The game looks pretty good, especially the character models and effects. I haven't tried all the characters yet, but the ones I have tried are great (Deku, Iida, Shoto, and Gran Turino). I played as Deku a lot (almost too much), he's so awesome to play, dashing around as him and pulling that hand trigger blast feels so damn good.

    There's seems to be more than enough content here to play with. The story mode starts from the middle of season 2 of the anime, and the story is mostly told through short, narration-based comic panels, with a couple of cool in-game cutscenes. It's obviously not the best way to experience the story, but hey it's more than enough for me. Also, the story mode structure lends itself quite well for portable gaming, so I think it's great for the Switch if you're thinking of getting it there.

    There's also a separate Missions mode, Arcade mode, and Online mode. I have played a couple of online matches, and it's so fun. There's some very good players out there, got struck by many awesome combos already. Another new multiplayer game for my daily pleasure. Gonna go full MLG training on this, lol.

    So, yeah. I'm glad that i bought this game, more MHA is always a good thing but I didn't expect to be so entertained by this.



  • @bam541 Sweet, it's starting to look more and more like I'm gonna purchase it when I'm not so strapped for cash.



  • If you had a spare $80 and wanted to play some PC games, what would you buy?

    I was thinking some classics I've never touched before. Deus Ex or Vampire The Masquerade? Are mods essential for playing these in 2019? Any other recommendations new or old?



  • @dipset I streamed Deus Ex last year with the Revision mod and still had a great time with it. Would definitely recommend checking it out.

    I do like those types of games though and always wanted to check out the original.



  • @dipset Got Euro Truck Simulator 2 the other day and it's so relaxing to play. I absolutely recommend it. I also would try out Eurojank stuff like Gothic II (the only one i tried, really enjoyed it), and delve into the STALKER games.



  • Thanks guys!

    Just looked into the Revision mod for Deus Ex and Gothic II. I think I might get both of these games. There is also an unofficial patch for Vampire as well as a 1440p mod, so I might even dive into all three. I need to christen my new mouse and soon to be keyboard.

    I've never heard the term "Eurojank" but it sounds endearing.

    EDIT:

    Just found this dudes essay on Gothic 1. He seems to be in-line with my issues of open world games today and sings the praises of Gothic and Gothic II. I'd disagree that all of the hand holding elements in today's open world games are all for worse though. Divinity II could have used arrows on the map and tracked your quest progress. I finish a day of work and I don't want to have to check my handwritten notes about what I was doing in a video game a few nights ago.

    Regardless, seems like Gothic series is a gem I missed because of my age, but I love Morrowind and other games he lists so I should try this out!

  • Been procrastinating on starting Metro Exodus. Been sick the past few days, and have been playing a lot of mobile games from my bed.



  • 3D Dot Game Heroes. Next up on my list from the "Tackle the Backlog" topic.

    I'm maybe half an hour in. The jolliness is near-Santa levels and it feels like it might scratch the Zelda itch for now.



  • I also need to get back to 3D Dot Game Heroes.

    Currently, I just started playing ZeroRanger and I am having a good time with it. Reminiscent of Downwell, which was one of my favorites from this gen.



  • @E_Zed_Eh_Intern @HoloGraphics 3D Dot Game Heroes was the first FromSoftware game I ever beat. If you're Dark/Demon's Souls fans, pay attention to the weapons in game. It eve has some of those beautiful From cross-over shenanigans.



  • @sazime Wait, 3D Dot was a From Soft game? I respect them even more now.



  • @bam541 I hope you don't get stuck in the mud like Blood did, lol.



  • After getting the platinum in Resident Evil 2, I was craving some more Leon action, so I dusted off the PS3 and played through RE4, which lead to me realizing there's a game I downloaded and then never got around to. Until DMC5, I've got some spare game time, so I'm now playing Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Raidou Kuzunoha vs. The Soulless Army. This game has vibes for days!



  • @minamik Started Raidou around a year ago and really enjoyed it. Then a baby came.
