Re: What are you playing right now?
I've been playin AM2R 1.4, just to fill that 2D Metroid-shaped void.
It's a very well polished game, there are still those stupid secrets that basically require you to use some weird combination of shinespark with basically no tolerance for mistakes and while I greatly enjoyed the Gameboy original when I first played it last year I can appreciate this remake too.

Dark Messiah of Might and Magic (PC)
Yes, I'm replaying it again.

That sounds like you are ashamed... Don't be! Dark Messiah is basically proto-Dishonored!

Speaking of which... all of Dishonored 2, picked it up on sale - don't know why I didn't have it yet.
The Stiltion Manor is awesome game design.
I consider it a bit of a guilty pleasure with the shlocky fantasy plot with Marty Stu protagonist and all.
Though sincerely in hindsight lockpicking isn't that useful when you have healing spells since most weapons can be aquired without needing a key anyway.

Re: What are you playing right now?
Just recently finished Mass Effect Andromeda. It took me 90 hours, and it was surprisingly decent. I was turned off of it originally because of the string of Bioware releases at the time, but I'm glad I got around to playing it.

So now I'm considering jumping back into Dragon Age 3 and seeing if I can muster the will to actually beat it this time around.

After months of watching my kids play Fortnite, I decided to give it a try now that they have planes.
Maybe someday God will give you a little pink toaster of your own.

h the shlocky fantasy plot with Marty Stu protagonist and all.

That's just because the someone didn't have confidence in the appeal of game itself and skipped a lot of exposition for the people who did not play Heroes of Might and Magic 5 and its expansions - which is weird if you consider other stuff like the shift in genre and graphical style.

Re: What are you playing right now?
SO I tried Fallout 76, got bored fast because I got the power armor and good weapons and now just waiting on content. Now I'm in kind of a lull looking for a game and I'm not sure what style I want to play. FPS, MMO, RTS? I dunno.

Finally found some time to start with Subnautica.

That game scratches so many itches that I didn't even knew I had (mainly the thrill of staring into the deep murky waters, getting scared of the moving shadows), I'm loving it!

Dishonored: Death of the Outsider ... now this one I had for a while and never touched.

Would do except I already have a hooded tough luck Aussie heavy with dark blue/grey digital camo. I'd never tell you two apart! :D

Re: What are you playing right now?
Steven Universe: Save The Light (PC) is simply delightful.
A lot of the appeal is in it being a Steven Universe game, but under the hood it is a solid light JRPG with very colorful and sharp cartoon graphics.
I could do without the QTE-based attack and parry mechanics but combat is turn-based otherwise so it's fine if not entirely to my taste. That it uses the A button on the pad for the QTE doesn't help since mine has a busted rubber dome so the feedback is horrible even if the button itself is technically functional.
I'm sincerely torn between splurging on a 8bit-do SF30 pro so I can finally also have a decent d-pad for platformers or just get a replacement rubber dome membrane and try to at least fix the A button on my old wired 360 pad.

Would fix the old button. Just my random opinion.  :D

I only say so because I can't count the number of times I've splurged on new gear, only to suddenly need the cash badly for something much more important and I wish I had just made do with less.  :lol:

Re: What are you playing right now?
Pillars of Eternity
I did two of the character sidequests and I was surprised how none of them had an easy resolution, Eder
Spoiler:
will probably never know why his brother joined the enemy in the war he was fighting
and Aloth is
Spoiler:
probably gonna have to live with another personality for the rest of his life
, I wonder what is in store for the others, Sagani in particular since she left a family back home for a really far-fetched quest. It also seems that you don't need to bring them in your party for the quests to trigger since I left Aloth attending stronghold business for most of the game but the quest still triggered when I talked to him.
I also finished upgrading the stronghold, at this point I'm tempted to start the White March content since I sincerely don't know who to choose between the Knights and the Dozen for the Battle of Yernwood.
I should probably set an additional grimoire or two for my wizard perhaps while until know I got away with casting only a few grimoire spells per rest I suspect I might get to the point I'll need to switch for additional spells.
I also leveled up the scepter I got when doing Caed Nua quests which is a really good wizard weapon and its ability to charm enemies randomly gratly helped with drakes, trolls and the like.
I'm still puzzled about some locations I still can't get to even if I have a bounty that's apprently roaming around them and the Druid's sidequest requires me to go there too and I'm always scared I'll get to a point where things will get gated off (it took me forever to end act I because I kept doing as many sidequests as possible because of this personal paranoia of mine).

I ordered the spare part on eBay but since it's from China it will take a while so I put the game on hold, it's a bit disappointing but it's either that or rage at the game because of the early presses registered due to the lack of tactility.

The point of No Return for the story's finale is well telegraphed. Let's just say that you shouldn't do anything that you know for certain requires divine intervention, even if you already have the assurance of divine assistance, like jumping into a seemingly bottomless pit.
