        I played it all the way through on launch on PC. It had bugs, and it was missing some glaring things, like proper cop AI. However overall I had no game breaking bugs. But also, I didn’t really follow the hype until the game was already coming out, so i didn’t have many expectations going in. I highly recommend it. Performance has improved, features have been added and refined, and it’s got a very rich and detailed world to play with. I haven’t played the DLC yet, but I’m hearing that’s pretty good as well.

          Gotcha, that’s about what I’ve heard from others too. I’m glad they continued to work on it and make it the game that they originally envisioned. I’m looking forward to playing it eventually haha

      Just finished playing this for the first time. Loved it wished there were more in world missions to do as I enjoyed the city.

        I’m doing another playthrough on hardest difficulty while only leveling intelligence perks. So, all I do is use smart guns and quick hacks. It’s a very different way to play.

    I started another playthrough of Skyrim! I’m not using any mods, but I am using content from the Creation Club or something that Bethesda offers, so I’m seeing new quests and weapons. I’m still discovering rooms and such in caves and dungeons I didn’t see before, and after all these years, I’m still having the time of my life! :)

    Finished Batman: Arkham Asylum yesterday. Also started Witcher 3 a while ago and have yet to finish that.

    Slay the Princess

    What a crazy, unexpected gem. Without spoiling anything, it’s a hand-animated interactive narrative game with strong Stanley Parable influences.

      That came across my recommendation queue the other day - despite my dislike for horror, it looks interesting enough that I might check it out!

        I don’t think I would classify it as a horror game really. It’s got some gritty subjects that it dives into and there are a few storylines that can be a bit gruesome, but overall it wasn’t really scary. It was more witty and philosophical at its core.

        I watched a stream of someone who played through every ending because the game is just captivating and so well done.

    I ‘finished’ Symphony of the Night the other day. By which I mean I got the bad ending, rather than doing some extra stuff to unlock the inverted castle. Should I go back and do that? Maybe at some point.

    I’m very close to finishing Tears of the Kingdom, and I’ve also started a new playthough of New Vegas on my Steam Deck. Plenty to keep me busy!

        This is probably an irrational annoyance, but I don’t like how finding the inverted castle is near impossible without a guide. I like logical puzzles! So that put me off slightly. I will go back and play through it eventually though.

      SotN is one of the best games of all time. The GBA Castlevanias are good as well. Thinking of Castlevania always reminds me of that multiplayer co-op CV game on XBL that I wish was still around… Harmony of Despair.

      Oh man, I just found a Unity port of Harmony of Despair with an active community playing it!

    SMT Nocturne, it looks as if I’m about to battle with the four horsemen of the apocalypse.

    Old game I know, but old is great 👍

    I’m planning a big mission to the Jool system in KSP, so I’m working on a reusable heavy lifter, large resource scanning probe, a refinery with small collection ships, a big lander, a spaceplane, a science station, comm satellites, and reusable transfer vehicles.

        It’s several hours of monotonous testing, often involving spreadsheets, for one moment of triumph.

        Probably the best simulation of a space program I can think of.

          Oh damn, maybe that isn’t my kind of game then 😅 I don’t mind a few calculations here and there while gaming but idk if I would find it fun to go full blown engineer to play a video game. I’ll still probably give it a go if it’s on sale though

    I think I will continue playing Dark Souls Remastered. I am not that far at all. The second boss is killing my nerves.

    Or I continue with Minecraft: Create above and beyond Modpack

      I still haven’t gotten into the Souls games yet. I think I just can’t handle that level of punishment from video games

        Friends tell me that this game becomes awesome once I finish the second boss…

        Its a mix of punishment and curiousity.

    I have mostly been playing Forza Horizon 4.

    I am not a car nut, but fun and relaxing to play while listening to a podcast

        Forza Horizon 3 just had its servers shut down, so no multiplayer any more ):

        Switch. Apparently online play never worked for most people, only those with 5G-based home Internet (like me) were able to use it anyway.

          That’s rough. Honestly online play would be a selling point for me. I’ve played enough of THPS that a reskin and new soundtrack isn’t super enticing to me

    Resident Evil 4! (the original, not the remake)

    Man, what a great game this is so far. It feels oddly nostalgic even though I’ve never played it before. It’s peak design from 2005.
