      • I quite like railroads.
        Even if it is overly simplified and a massive step backwards from Railroad Tycoon III.

          Surviving Mars.

          • I like surviving mars, but it gets a bit repetitive.

            It suffers from the same problems as city building games, there is no clear objective, you basically just build until something goes tits up and totally screws you over making you restart and try again.

            I just wish firms would find a better way to do these games and give them some real direction past just keep growing.

            • Yeh, it's a problem with city builders once you have built everything available.
              Looking through the "achievements" available, it would seem that multiple playthroughs might reveal some sort of story or events.


              However this week I have mostly been playing...……
              Superhot VR.

              • The story events are strange and the triggers seem totally random, had them trigger really early and not really go anywhere then had ones that just didn't seem to trigger.

                As for what I'm playing soul calibur 6.

                • Mostly Overwatch, but I recently bought Call of Duty Black Ops 4 for £45 and that was with a 10% discount, they're charging 50 squid for it and it doesn't even have a campaign..

                  • just picked up Ironsky: Invasion and its dlc for less then a fiver usd.
                    it is based on a 2012 movie called Iron Sky which is a great silly over the top B-movie about space nazis.

                    • all the talk about RDR2 got me nostalgic and i dusted off CoJ Gunslinger and am giving it another go round

                      • So is Iron Sky any good?
                        The film was bonkers.

                        Comment


                        • the iron sky game is just as bonkers but in a good way.
                          you can play with m/kb but for me at least a game pad allowed for better control.
                          the game uses tongue in cheek FMV cutscenes

                          • I'm one of the many gamers that decided to go back and play Path of Exile after the disaster at Blizzcon where they announced a new Diablo game for mobile only. It's a solid game and remarkably better since the first time I played it, I would recommend checking it out, they got a new expansion coming in December for it.

                            • i played path of exile when it first came out....liked it since it recalled diablo to me.
                              i stopped sometime before its first expansion because something else caught my eye.
                              it was fun to play....IIRC it is co-op too.
                              might be a candidate for something all of us could play

                              • So picked up a remake of a game from 1999.
                                Outcast: Second Contact.
                                was free at the time from Humble i think not sure if it still is...

                                anyways...this game is surprisingly good.
                                the 'remake' seems to have been to make it run well on modern systems / monitors.
                                also redid hud and textures a bit.
                                i forgot how captivating this game was....started it up other day and played for 6 hours straight and woulda kept going if it hadnt been time to make dinner.
                                graphics are still dated by todays standards but is fine...and all dialogue is 100% voice acted along with subtitles.

                                it is a great open-world sandbox style action adventure rpg from the turn of the centrury
                                and predates GTA3 by a few years.
