Started playing Dying Light. I like it quite a bit but I still dont get used to the parkour aspect, I've been falling over and over while trying to grab ledges.

I was at the ER with bronchitis yesterday and last night. I'm so ready to go home, sit back, and fish on Ice Lakes. Guys, I'm not really an outdoorsy dude, even though I live in Texas... but this game is so relaxing. If it drops low, check it out. I wish I could go ice fishing now.

Started a TW1 EE playthrough. I can't believe they pulled that game off with the Aurora Engine. I'm simulatenously amazed at the technical feat, the storytelling and horrified that this is still contemporary to Crysis.

I'm a huge Witcher stan. This became an epiphany with Witcher 2, and I literally built a whole rig to play Witcher 3 at max settings (minus that hair effect that nobody even noticed).

Looking back at Witcher 1, it's still great storytelling. But whew, those graphics!!! Indeed, that game is an impressive feat on the same engine used to do Neverwinter Nights.

No disgrace in being compared to Crysis. That game still puts a lot of modern games to shame.

Currently into the new Path of Exile league, but the Baldur's Gate 3 announcement has be interested in doing both a full Trilogy run of that (I already made my character for that in BG1, a half-orc fighter/thief), and finally finishing a run of D:OS2. Too bad there are so many hours in a day, because that's a lot of video gaming to do.

I took a little break from Ice Lakes and jumped in Mighty Gunvolt. It's a nice, little, medium difficulty "Mega Man" gem.

I'm finally starting to like Oxygen Not Included. The game becomes more interesting and challenging after the first 30 days. Developing new ways to collect gasses, recycling polluted water etc is lots of fun! I'm glad I didn't stop playing after the first few hours.

I also bought Dishonored: Definitive Edition (currently €6 on CdKeys). I've played the base game on PS3 back then, but I really want to replay it on pc. I'm also looking forward to play the DLC.

Installed Opus Magnum from PC Game Pass. It's actually really good and would be great to use as a teaching tool for coding. Really nice game, though some of these puzzles require a galaxy brain I don't have to make them efficient.

Thanks! I’m already better.

Enjoy Dishonored!

Hidden object games are the perfect palate cleanser between games. Playing the House of Snark trilogy and Hidden Folks.

I forgot how much I liked Wolf Nü Order... though some of the mechanics... like peeking under the door to shoot the feet... I don’t have enough brain strength or fingers for that.

Tower Unite is an online social game where you play things like Minigolf, Laser Tag, Bowling, Trivia and many more with your friends and/or strangers. For almost everything you do in the game, you earn a currency of units, which can be spent on items for yourself and your Condo.

There is also a Movie Theater where you can watch synchronized YouTube videos with fellow moviegoers.

Perhaps my favorite place of all is the Casino, which has Texas Holdem, Video Poker, Blackjack, Slot Machines and a few others. It's all super addicting and assures I'll never enter a real casino :p

The developers recently added Fishing. Their next big update is the Arcade, a place to play 2D games and numerous other arcade machines. Down the road, they will add a Night Club, Go-Karting, Bumper Cars and so much more. For it being in early access, the game is already really good and has the potential to be even greater. I'm excited to see its development.

Here is their roadmap

In between the days when I find the will to face the inherent repetitiveness of AC Unity and Grim Dawn, I have found myself in a JRPG mood.
So archeo-gaming with Final Fantasy Legends 1 (GameBoy) and finally returning to Tokyo in Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse (3DS).

Final Fantasy Legends 1 (GameBoy)
Always avoided the Saga series from Square because of their 'weird' reputation, but it finally dawned on me that it is by the guy who made Final Fantasy II, and I'm one of the two people on earth that loved FF2. So...
Strange beast, this FFL1. Very very old and formulaic, shit is basically grind yourself to oblivion in order to advance the bare-bone plot. And yes it is by the FF2 guy, needless or broken mechanics that don't work well, here we gooo. But it's has a definite charm, and with the few plot and dialog there is, it has a surprising amount of moments. You have to be in the mood though, that's a given.

Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse (3DS)
Apocalypse, the jury is still undecided about it. Vanilla 4 was already very meh overall, and this one is... often very bad. I mean I should have seen that coming since it takes place in the same setting, but this shit shamelessly re-use assets like there is no tomorrow. And, if the plot looks decent at first, in 10 hours they didn't do shit with it and it never caught with me. No shit is given.
I can't say it's totally bad, but for the time being, this is not even Megaten 4.5, this is a fan disk.

Final Fantasy Adventure (1991, GameBoy)

After the initial adaptation phase when you have to take into account the age of the game, its hardware etc, I must say that I am hooked. It’s relatively boring, the music while sometimes great, can be repetitive and the sound quality is limited, oh and let’s not forget the awful controls...
...
But this is seriously great. I’m impressed. The best thing I could say is that at a certain point during my session, I realized I had no need to lower my expectations due to the age of the game, that I was having legit fun.
It still control like shit and I can’t wait to play episodes with more than two colors, but yeah, impressed.

Today is my last day off until June 30th so I played DOS2 for 6-7 hours.

I've cleared most of Reaper's Coast now, I think. I still have to track down the demonologist and the elves. I've unlocked my third source point now after eating a disgusting organ of some kind, and then having a graveyard worth of souls injected into me by an evil elven necromancer. Now I'm eating the souls of dead Magisters to power my abilities(they deserve it) and being told that I might have to betray my friends in order to Ascend.

I think the whole environmental fields thing is cool... I just wish it was maybe simplified a bit? Cursed electrified steam clouds and cursed necro fire and such are so annoying to deal with, at least for me. That fight in the Blackpits with all the Oil and Fire voidlings was so annoying. I was fine, but trying to keep Gwydion alive was a pain.

Started Stranglehold for pc the other day. Boy do I wish this had controller support, especially since im playing it on my htpc. I feel like I could dual wield and aim gun separately if I wasn't limited to just a mouse (A thought I will likely never have again - m&kb4life)

Played a lot of Apex Legends today with my new Xbox one controller with the new wireless adapter. I switched to the old one since the left analog stick on the new controller loves to slightly drift right.

I'm still trying to get through Assassin's Creed Odyssey: I finally uncovered all the map and completed all locations of the base game!

After the last big patch that increased the level cap to 99 I decided to cheese the rest of the way so I increased all the passive skills that give critical hit chance, upgraded the armor pieces I already had with that bonus and now my Assassin set has a 100% critical hit chance while at full health.
So I pretty much kill anything if I don't go in open combat, and even then I need to be pretty unlucky to die.

I switch to my Warrior set only for the conquest battles or for the legendary monsters now.

Played DOS2 for an hour or so this morning before work. I'm trying to finish up in Reaper's Coast and I keep stumbling upon new quests.
I still have to find the elves, and deal with the sawmill. I have done nothing at the Paladin checkpoint and the rest of the North/North-Eastern section of the map. The demon island is done, as is Marg/Grog, and the Magister Investigations in Driftwood. I still want to check out a cliff in Cloisterwood that looks like it is on fire.

Oh! And I just found out that Fane can eat body parts in elf-mode so I feel like I missed out on a lot of stuff, but oh well.

Started to play Super Mario World. So much memory to relive, and I seem to remember most of the game from the time I played it a lot. I even discover new things I didn't know even when I beat all stages and got all alternative exits.

Apart from playing an old game I am also playing Rise of the Tomb Raider. Fun game too.
I try to finish Yooka Laylee to but I find it very boring collect-a-thon game. Only got two more worlds to beat

Playing Assassin's Creed Origins at the mo and loving it. At 65 hours I've completely cleared the whole map, apart from some Gladiator and Hippodrome events, and getting close to the end of the main story. I love Bayek and Aya and would consider them two of my favourite protagonists in an Assassin's Creed game and the Roman antagonists are especially wonderfully evil pieces of shit. Still got the DLC to do so I expect another 20 hours or so of Origins before I finish. Hopefully I finish it before next week since Judgment is out and I'm a complete Yakuza Studio fanboy.

Also bought Assassin's Creed Odyssey for £36 for the Ultimate Edition but I might leave that for a good 3 - 4 months before starting it. Don't want to burn out lol.

Does that work for a game if I add it to steam? As right now it's just installed standalone on Windows
Yeah, if you add it as a non-Steam game to Steam you'll be able to use the Steam Input stuff.

I am playing FF7 on the Switch (formerly PS4, long story, did a post) and it's remarkable at how well it aged, at least for me.

I’ve toyed with the idea of replaying FF7 for years. I played it in French, which if I’m not mistaken is even more badly translated than the English version.
But there are so many possibilities. Switch for portability and not having those ugly models too big ? Emulation with a good crt shader ? Retranslation, and if so which one ? Remako mod ?
A little too many choice for someone who doesn’t even like FF7.
FF6 FTW.

Any advice guys ?

Still plugging away at DOS2. I think I am done with Reaper's Coast now... The map is scoured clean, all of my open quests are for the next area(or are quests I don't feel like finishing). Time to move on!

I went portability for a few reasons, but mainly because it’s a longish game and I don’t have chunks of time in front of my PC for the foreseeable future. I had gotten it on PS4 with the intention of doing remote play, but that was a spectacular failure. So, Switch it was.

I also think it presents nicely on the small screen.
