Well, few weeks ago I've got sucked in Genshin Impact on my phone and ever since I'm just playing it as my back problem prevents me to sit near computer for too long.

My sister came to visit the US from Taiwan and we've been playing The Legend of the Mystical Ninja on SNES, brings back so many memories. We're playing on my pc and I only have one controller, but I'm surprised at how intuitive SNES games are when configured with a mouse and keyboard.

I've finally beaten all of the RCT2 Triple Thrill pack. Fairly comfortable wins for the Expert Time Twister parks, which was a pleasant surprise. Quite liked the aesthetic of Gemini City - wouldn't mind seeing that sandstone and obsidian skyscrapers theme (and hovercars) used in some other game or media, to be honest!

 

I've started up the Serious Sam Classics Revolutions extra episode: Bright Island. Took a little time to get used to the older feel and handling (I've mostly played Fusion 2017 and SS4 as of late) but I'm back in the saddle and have already made it through the first level on Serious. I'll probably check a guide if I'm struggling to find the secret levels, as Serious Sam secrets can be hidden in the most ingenious, unintuitive ways, and I know there are two. Want to get a "full" experience at least once, and then maybe come back for a "proper" play some other time.

Just finished Eye of the Beholder, and good grief did it ever get tough by the end.

I've been playing a lot of Pokemon TCG Online lately, lol. It's addictive, man, and I love that you can redeem codes for real life boosters/decks to play them online too.

I finished playing Quake 1 on normal with Darkplaces. I used the shotguns a lot more often despite them being objectively ass. Fuck Spawns so goddamn much.

 

I've been having a lot of trouble logging into Diablo 2 for a few months. It's been getting stuck on "Connecting to Fastest Server" or "Checking Latest Version" for hours on end. I guess I shouldn't be surprised that service for a 20+-year-old game is spotty (especially since I play non-LoD on USWest); it certainly makes transferring items between mules a guaranteed loss. The last time I played it in earnest was a little over a year ago; otherwise I've been just logging in on the first of the month to refresh my characters.

 

I doubt I'll ever get D2 Resurrected; the Blizzard of back then sure as hell isn't the avaricious bastards Activision-Blizzard of now.

Still playing Trials of Mana, I'm about 11 hours in, and I have to say that it's the most enjoyable RPG I've played since Final Fantasy 7.

 

It took me about two and a half to three hours before I realized "Holy shit, I'm having fun playing a videogame again! I love this game!"

 

I really can't remember the last time that I lost a couple of hours in a game, or I couldn't put the controller down. That "Holy shit, it's three AM" moment. It's just a fun, enthusiastic, beautiful gem of a game. Everything about its presentation is perfect, the music is fantastic, the combat is fluid, the story is divided up between six different characters. I just absolutely fell in love with this game.

 

Stupid job, interfering with my Mana time.

I play Mafia II. This game has been through 10 times. If not more. It was the second part that really got me with its plot and characters. I do not recommend 1 and 3. Waste your time. This game succeeded in everything - mechanics, staging, characters, design, music... A little bit about the story:


The events of Mafia II are set in 1943-1951 in the fictional American city of Empire Bay. The city is "ruled" by three major Mafia "families": Vinci, Clemente, and Falcone. The main character Vito Scaletta as a child moved with his family from Sicily to the United States. As a boy. Vito thought that all his dreams would come true in America. But in fact it turned out to be different. At school Vito became friends with another boy Joe Barbaro. A well-known bully in the neighborhood. They were both from poor families so becoming best friends they quickly became addicted to the basics of gangsterism - working as pickpockets, robbing stores, etc. One day grown up Joe and Vito decided to rob a jewelry store. Their first serious deal didn't turn out to be quite successful. They were spotted by a policeman. Vito was caught and Joe managed to escape. It was the Second World War. Volunteers with knowledge of the Italian language were needed at the front. So Vito was given a choic. To go to jail and serve his time or to become a soldier and expiate his guilt to society through the blood of fascists. Vito chose the second option. And as a result he was sent to the front.


And then all the fun begins...

Besides binging Doom like crazy I've been playing Dark Souls Remastered for the first time on Xbox, just got to Anor Londo. Prior to that I went through Fallout: New Vegas for the first time as well (and my first Fallout game altogether) and binged it like a MF and finished it in a little under a month. Still got to go through the DLC however.

Not sure how my comment turned Russian.

 

Yeah, I'd say the game is worth playing. It is good, but I personally found some of the puzzles and hidden areas to be kind of frustrating, and by the end, it all felt a bit tedious, but that's just me. It was well ahead of its time and represented its source material very well.

I am currently playing through Quake Mission Pack 1: Scourge of Armagon & Doom II : The Way id Did on Twitch. I may look into playing Take No Prisoners next (after Doom II) because that game needs more love and I usually have a thing for top-down shooters.

Currently playing Celeste. I will always have a soft spot in my heart for platformers and there has been so many amazing ones lately, but this is such a white knuckle platformer, I love it to death.

 

BUT THOSE B-SIDES ARE FUCKING KILLING ME!

Recently I played through most of the Saints Row games that have been released on PC. The difference between 2 and the later games is so stark, even if 2 inches toward the craziness of the later games.

I loved two, never really cared for three. It seemed like it was one step forward and two steps back as far as customization and just general zaniness. Two was just ridiculous while still maintaining some semblance of normality; yeah it kind of felt like a GTA ripoff, but it had enough of it's own identity to get through it. Saints Row 3 felt like it took itself far too seriously up until mid to late game. Then it just went off the rails. But as far as customization and gameplay it felt really limited compared to Saints Row 2. It's been quite a while since I've played it, but it seemed like 2 did everything bigger and better.

 

And I know everyone dogs on Saints Row 4, but I absolutely loved it, despite the fact that vehicles and firearms basically became pointless. When you can use magic attacks and fly across the map, there's no reason to use an automatic rifle or drive a car. But I still had quite a bit of fun with it, and I still think the dub step gun is hilarious. Plus I made my character look like an insanely buff George Washington.

 

Gat out of Hell was good, if not too short. But I found the firearms far more useful in that game than I did in Saints Row 4, and I enjoyed it. Except I played as Kinzie. I'm not going to look at Gat's ass for twelve hours. Shame there wasn't more customization available in it, but for a cheap bonus entry in the series it was pretty enjoyable.

 

In Saints Row 2 I made my character look like Anton Chigurh from "No Country for Old Men". Gave him a British accent. I liked playing as that character, it really gave me an excuse to be as sadistic as I wanted to the NPCs.

So i now got into Daggerfall!

Started Years ago and i felt as i did play through a whole Game only by getting out of the first Dungeon and doing another Quest for the Fighters Guild...

I am super proud that i've done more Quests and got through another Dungeon alive ;D
I even bought a Horse (because if not i wouldn't have been back fast enough to return the Quest...).

Seriously, this Game is hard, but now i am into it ^-^

I'm taking a break in Tekken 7 so playing some Team Fortress 2, I'm only playing community servers since I don't like waiting for Casuals. Lately I've been going to x100 servers and one of them buffed the Carbine to godly amounts, they removed all of its weaknesses and gave it new strengths. To explain, each bullet now deals like 100-200+, the fire rate now has been buffed and its now like a long range flamethrower, and each clip has about 180 bullets. You can imagine how this one weapon alone can dominate an entire server but it does have a hard counter with Dalokah Heavies because Carbine can't kill them fast enough because of their gigantic HP.

I've just been on a Pokemon kick lately. As for official games go, I've finally picked up Mystery Dungeon again on my GBA and have gone further than I ever went so far. I think I am finally getting to the end! On our way to find Rayquaza.

 

As for fangames, I have started up on Pokemon Uranium and have been enjoying it so far. I really love fakemon games since you get to enjoy seeing a pokemon for the first time.

Make sure to play through the Dark Brotherhood quest in Oblivion. One of the best storylines I've played in Elder Scrolls.

Already played through it once and did that one, it is pretty wild.  Thieves' Guild too.

I'm playing another campaign of the Misery mod for Stalker.

 

I wouldn't be surprised I've said this at least once before in this thread. I really like it! Except for the random crashes on a pushed unstable engine, bad frame rate on my 3090 and just some stupid level of random difficulty that makes save scumming essentially a game mechanic, part of the gameplay loop.

 

Also I got Project Brutality 3.0 and playing the classic Doom wads. I would like a quality wad pack that has tech base and average 100 monsters or less.

A couple of months ago Microsoft gave out £8 vouchers for the XBox store for their summer sale, so I took the chance to grab Soul Calibur II HD Online at a considerable discount and got all of the unlocks and offline achievements for that, which was great. Despite previous experience on the GameCube of having Seong-Mina as my main character and being very proficient, I found I slipped more easily back into using Astaroth, so he got the bulk of my play time. Equipped with Thanatos (his Soul Calibur-tier weapon) I was comfortable with most challenges, which made the harder unlocks still very attainable. Still a great game, even if I miss the expanded move lists from 3 and 4, and the graphics felt a bit dated in 1080p.

 

After that distraction, I ended up losing a couple of weeks to Netflix and Youtube, before coming back to Serious Sam Classics: Revolution and the extra episode "Bright Island", which had an arsehole of a battle at the end of the 5th main level (6th if you've found the first secret level) - Forlorn Ruins, where I basically resorted to camping a corner to handle the bulk of it and had to savescum it a bit... Particularly to make it past the Ugh-Zan Candidates who show up in force at the very end. Other than that and a similarly tricky set up near the end of the 3rd level (Sunken Pyramid), the episode was pretty straightforward and enjoyable, even with the inclusion of cut enemy types from TSE. I did both secret levels as well, so got a pretty complete experience.

 

Today I gave in to temptation and tried the first episode of the Quake remaster on Nightmare. Good stuff - but the again, Quake was always good.

Besides a lot of DOOM, I'm sort of always replaying the Thief trilogy (not the fourth game). I ran a YouTube channel about Thief for a number of years, it's nice to play without Fraps running, without needing to narrate, and do production and wait for uploads to finish. Feels like a retirement sometimes.

Im currently trying to get 8 secs on e1m1 but when I finish I plan to start halo 1, I completed reach when it came out on steam and I was quite disappointed but people tell me it's the worst halo ever.
