Re: What are you playing right now?
I just finished playing thru Crimson Skies (PC), and have started again on Starlancer.  Years ago I made it to the last mission, but a persistent crash to desktop kept me from finishing the game.  I'm hoping for better luck this time, plus I now know how to look this stuff up on the internet.  :)

I've also been dabbling with Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, Titanfall 2, and Air Conflicts: Pacific Carriers.

Something more relaxinc after trying to get S rank on all missions on ace in Ace Combat 7.
I've finally managed to find the last secret in the boss area of the forest, that 99% was really annoying for some reason.

Good luck escorting ships so small you can barely see without an escort list in that last mission, boy Starlancer becomes really frustrating in the last third or so.

Re: What are you playing right now?
Rediscovered StarCraft II for me...

And decided to play through the first game aswell, but with the StarCraft: Mass Recall mod for SCII. This is actually very good and for a person who does not have a big affection to the first game, it is the much better deal than StarCraft: Remastered.

Have to laugh, that you are actually able to play the Infiltration missions as a Third Person Shooter if you prefer. Sure, it has some fundamental flaws from other TPS, like that you are not able to shoot while you are moving, but it is a RTS engine after all. It loose up things, nevertheless.

As far as i know the Classic version of the first one is Free aswell. So you can experience a good part of the story for free anyway.

Re: What are you playing right now?
The first is definitely free.  I bought the battle chest back in the mid nineties but it's good to have a backup .

Warcraft 3 is on there too ;)

Re: What are you playing right now?
Started re-playing Hurrican. It is a free fan made modern take on the classic 16 bit era Turrican games. Its bloody good - easily one of the best examples of the genera. You can download it here: https://www.winterworks.de/project/hurrican/

Mods, cheats, extra levels etc can be found here: http://selmiak.bplaced.net/games/pc/index.php?lang=eng&game=Hurrican&page=userlevel

NB if installing level packs make sure there are no blank    spaces in the folder name, otherwise it wont work. Using_underscores is fine :-)

Started binging Arma 3 again, playing with some modpacks. Loads of stuff like Russian vehicles, USAF aircraft, etc.

One thing I didn't read in the descriptions was that one of the missile trucks was... special.



At least the enemies were all gone.

Re: What are you playing right now?
So, in the last few weeks I've started and finished a bunch of videogame stuff:

Finished Steven Universe: Save The Light (PC) with all achievements, just a delightful little pseudo-JRPG and an excellent licensed game, there are a few glitches, especially in the later parts of the game but nothing gamebreaking. There wasn't even a need to grind all that much, basically all I needed to do to beat the boss I got just by going around hunting for secrets and farming crafting materials to 100% the game (easy enough, but a couple of secrets are a bit too cryptic compared to the others, one of Greg's in particular unless you notice a certain thing in the backdrop of another screen will make you try more or less everything in vain and I had to consult google, the other I discovered just by dumb luck) even with the achievement that required you to wear the Crying Breakfast Friends badge during the fight (thus halving all your stats).

Finished Monster World IV for Sega Mega Drive twice, because when I discovered that the ROM I put in my Everdrive wasn't the official translation I had to try the official one which is better (the unofficial one botches one of the hints to a puzzle in one fo the levels and seems to make stuff up here and there) you can tell which one you got because the unoffical translation uses a much more plain font while the offical one uses a sort of comic sans thing that's supposed to look vaguely like Arabian writing I guess.
Last entry of the Wonder Boy/Monster World series until the recent Monster Boy and The Cursed Kingdom (which I'm still waiting for PC) it goes for an ancient middle eastern aesthetics and a Wonder Girl called Asha. The game seems cut down somewhat compared to The Dragon's Trap and Wonder Boy in Monster World ditching most of the metroidvania elements in favour of a largely linear progression with a HUB world, you can go back and forth from a level until you beat its boss (and you'll need to, since occasionally some grinding will be necessary to buy equipment or to get secrets you might have missed before the level is gated off forever) then you can't go back to it. Still it's graphically very nice, with the cartoony style now being much more expressive compared to the relatively stiff sprites of the other Mega Drive entry in the series. You also get a pet that will help you jump, activate switches and various tasks connected to puzzle solving or just navigating the levels. Combat and movement are also much faster and Asha while incapable of magic seem to know a couple more moves compared to Scion. It's a pity Sega never put the official translated version on Steam like the other Westone games for the system, still IIRC it's available on some of the recent consoles, probably will get ported on Switch sooner or later if it isn't already.

Pillars of Eternity
(PC)
I've sent Eder to pasture once I finished his sidequest and got the bird lady to take his place. Since now that I gathered proof the animancers are being framed and I don't know which faction I'll use to back me up because they all seem various shades of dickish to me I'll probably deal with a bunch of sidequests first.

Toejam & Earl
(Sega Mega Drive)
It was the pack in on my Mega Drive 2 and since reviews of the remake/sequel/reboot/whatever reminded me I never finished it I decided to pop the cartridge in and give it a spin.
Well, I now remember why I never finished it, its roguelike nature is frankly rather annoying also the game is stupidly long, it took me three hours to the to half the game, and there is no save feature. A pity because having to run away from enemies is something rather fresh for a 16 bit console.

Golvellius: Valley of Doom
(Master System, played on Sega Mega Drive using a Power Base Mini adapter)
Zelda overworld with linear levels that are either sidescrolling or autoscrolling overhead, not easy but it has password saves (very long passwords, thank goodness for cellphones) and it's quite charming with a cartoony anime style not unlike the Wonder Boy games.

Re: What are you playing right now?
Slime Rancher is really quite pleasant.


 
Re: What are you playing right now?
I played Slime Rancher a tad ago, around when Frostpunk also came out so I played both side by side. I think Frostpunk is the easier of the two. I was sharing my progress with the person who recommended me Slime Rancher on Whatsapp and here are a few snippets:

Quote from: Autohummer
I was tired today, so I ranched slime. I think aerial combat is a better career choice.

Quote from: Autohummer
Meanwhile, ecological collapse! My ranch looks like Berlin in 1945!
I won't get executed by hungry exploding slimes, right?

Quote from: Autohummer
Yes, [the Boom Slime] enclosure is now a perpetual explosion machine after I plopped about 50 of them in.
I can't get enough chickens to feed them.
Oh, wait, I just found an infinite source of Chicken. Problem solved (?)

When asked where did I find the aforementioned infinite chickens:
Quote from: Autohummer
The Overgrowth, just on the ground. You need to let chicken deposits regenerate after aggressive chicken mining, though.

Quote from: Autohummer
Meanwhile, a crowd of slimes has gathered to complain angrily about the hunger. Many of them haven't eaten in a long time.
The 50-boom slime enclosure was a mistake....

Quote from: Autohummer
I spent my first 2 slime keys on really far off shortcuts, so I fed a super rock slime and opened the door to the mines. Now my ranch is like the glowing sea in fallout 4.

When asked if I have started making largos:
Quote from: Autohummer
I try not to after a situation with ~45 pink cat-shaped beachballs and 1 misplaced rock plort.
Now I only have about 20 left of said beachballs.

Quote from: Autohummer
There is no economy of scale in this game, only pyramid-schemes of tarr-producing shenanigans.
Now I find slimes that quantum teleport out of their enclosures.


Right now I am playing the "Blame everything on the Orokin game" AKA Warframe.

 
Re: What are you playing right now?
Ah, yes, quantum slimes... aka "They're already tarr"

I've just given them an expansion to themselves. There seems to be more than enough space on the ranch to go around, really.

Re: What are you playing right now?
I just grabbed Slime Rancher since it was free.  Im at day 20, i have the overgrowth, the cave, the dock, and the lab all unlocked. 

Also, I'm almost 100% farming Largos, but i only do like 6 per pen.  I've got rock/tabby, rock/phosphor, crystal/boom, and crystal/rad pens.  Just figuring out the best way to get Hunters integrated and profitable.
