Balatro, Nier: Automata, and Automation: Car Tycoon Game.

Just finished Bomb Rush Cyberfunk and need to get back into Baldur’s Gate 3 to finish the last act.

Muffi,

WoW Season of Discovery and it’s been fantastic. The group of friends I used to play with 10 years ago all decided to start playing again, and we just had our first raid yesterday. It’s been ages since I’ve laughed so much during a night of gaming.

Underwaterbob,

Metroid Dread, Stardew Valley, and Baldur’s Gate 3.

The former on Yuzu’s last build on a nice 32 inch monitor with a big controller that doesn’t cramp up my hands. It’s pretty hard, but I did just get past a part I hear a lot of people quit on, so there’s that. I can’t imagine trying to play it with Joycons. I’d probably snap them in half.

realitista,

Still going on Baldurs Gate 3.

GTA IV and NFS Unbound on Rog Ally.

I’ll be honest, I was too young to understand GTA IV’s lore back then, and I was mainly playing it for barely getting 20 FPS on my PC and the physics system of the game. But now when I actually listen to the dialogues and radio station, man it sounds like they saw what America would be like in 2020s a decade early. “We should reduce minimum wage and remove rights of citizens to fight against the illegal immigration crisis”. Damn.

just beat a difficult game about climbing and i loved it! it’s the only other game in the genre that has risen to the heights of getting over it in terms of gameplay mechanics and level design.

if anyone reading this knows about a community for these types of games (foddian? getting over it-likes?), please send it my way. i love these games to bits and have so much to say about them but to my knowledge basically no one cares about these games outside of watching people on twitch get angry at them.

looking forward to playing return of the obra dinn, then i’ll probably start speedrunning the climbing game until baby steps releases lol

Just finished Deus Ex: Human Revolution for the umpteenth time, and managed to bag the achievement for not triggering any alarms (commonly regarded as one of the most difficult achievements in the game, alongside Pacifist)

Yes, a moderate degree of savescumming was used. I’m not sorry!

I'm kind of in a gaming slump right now and nothing has really grabbed me for a couple of weeks.

I'm still doing runs in Deep Rock Galactic: Survivor, which is fun for the most part.

Then I think I finished the campaign in Kingdom Rush, a Tower-Defense game, which unlocked a bunch of super hard bonus levels, but I guess you're supposed to clear all the challenge modes for the regular levels before that, for upgrades, but I'm not really interested in that at all.

I also tried getting back into Dyson Sphere Program, Last Epoch, and Satisfactory, but nothing really stuck.

A few days ago I started Solasta: Crown of the Magister, and played through the tutorial, but still need to start it properly, but who knows if I'll do it.

qeqpep,

Trying out Ironsworn, my first tabletop rpg. After watching emacsconf talk on it ;D

aaaaaaaa Persona 3’s remake finally came out!!

I was a little too young to be playing the game when it first came out, but it really left a mark on me and I’ve always wanted Atlus to update the game. I started with FES on the playstation 2. and when I tell you I was so excited for Persona 4 that I called every video game retail store in the city until they said they had a copy and immediately went and bought it, I’m not lying.

so far really loving the remake! I’ve been busy with another hobby so I haven’t gotten to finish it. the voice acting is great (Akihiko is really the voice I felt strongly about out of the entire cast that I liked, and I know the voice actor from work in Genshin Impact and Honkai: Star Rail, and of course he knocked it out of the park. so did Allegra Clark, as my favorite character in the game, Mitsuru) and while I know reviewers complained about Tartarus being copy paste environments with the same enemies over and over, it really hit good for me and brought back memories.

other than that, playing Honkai: Star Rail (taking a long break from Genshin, because I’m really frustrated with how it’s being handled overall) and trying to pace myself with the content since Sparkle’s banner is going to last for another ten years. I’m so excited for Acheron (also voiced by Allegra Clark!) that I’ve prefarmed almost everything for her, short of her relics. there’s a reason my Discord status is “I love you in every universe” with a Raiden Ei emoji, hahaha.

Computerchairgeneral,

After around sixty hours I finally rolled credits on Yakuza: Like a Dragon. Started to feel like a slog towards the end, but I wanted to see the story through to the end. Those last three chapters had to have the most Yakuza-style plot twists I have ever seen. Overall I ended up liking it a lot more then I was expecting given that its the series first JRPG. I think it handled the switch well, although it did feel a bit grindy at the end. There's still some side content I might end up doing, but for now I feel like I need a break from it.

I got predictably burned out on RDR2 after trying to complete a bunch of challenges before proceeding (I wanted to look cool in all the cutscenes!), so that is on the back burner for now. I also had some personal events that made me less able to focus on story games. Or maybe less in the mood. Take your pick.

Found a good deal on F1 Manager 2023 instead, and that has been a perfect distraction. Not least since I’m not really getting my F1 fix from watching the races so far, this year.

I didn’t play the predecessor so I don’t know how much it improves year-on-year, but I’d say it’s solid if you are an F1 fan. The presentation is awesome, especially thanks to the official licensing, with stuff like radio clips of the actual drivers and engineers adding a lot of immersion during races.

As a management game it seems fine. As someone who’s put a lot of hours into Football Manager, this isn’t on that level in terms of depth. But it seems perfectly adequate. I’m having fun juggling the budget and striking a balance between long term investments and short term development. There are a lot of little considerations to fiddle with. The setup-sliders minigame is fun.

I’m playing as Aston Martin on Hard Race AI/Hard Development AI and it hasn’t felt too easy (yet). Red Bull is leading and I’m not catching them, Ferrari is thereabouts and I’m just behind, with Alonso usually beating Ferrari (but not always), and I even managed to sneak a win when Verstappen crashed out in Baku.

If you’re an F1 fan and can find it on sale I think you’ll enjoy it.

DmMacniel,

Together with two friends I play Nightingale. It’s buggy but beautiful.

And when I don’t want to multiplay, I play the old Command and Conquer Titles EA was so generously providing on Steam for super cheap.

Doing my part in Helldivers at the moment.

That game gets my brain firing on all cylinders and although it has It’s frustrating moments, I’d say that overall I think it’s great. It’s one of the few 'Live-Service" games I actually enjoy.
