    A friend of mine invested in an Oculus Rift a while back, I mistakenly introduced him to Elite.

    He's on his 4th hotas (he keeps buying better ones) and a goddamn motion chair.

    The divine voice of Avechna, the Avenger reverberates powerfully, "Congratulations, Morkarion, you are the Bringer of Death indeed."

    You see Estarra the Eternal shout, "Morkarion is no more! Mourn the mortal! But welcome True Ascendant Karlach, of the Realm of Death!

    Gwent public beta. Oh god I had things to do.
    I was lucky enough to have had a closed beta key on day 1. Already had my fill of Gwent.

    My favorite Northern Realms strategy:

    1. Play Cirilla and Geralt on the first turn. Intentionally lose.

    2. Play Cirilla again from her passive ability and use revive to get Geralt back on the board for this round. Play Triss and attack any of your opponents hero/gold cards with the passive ability Triss has. Depending on what you have in your hand you could follow this up with either the blue stripes commando combo or a swarm of poor infantry. 

    3. You wanna have the Dimeritium bomb and Aeromancy cards. If you had to use them on second round, that's fine. But it's better if you have them in this battle. Play Roche, your last gold cards and attack anything your opponent has on the table. If you are going first. Take a stab in the dark and play Aeromancy and then Roche. You might wanna have Prinscilla on this fight, but if she's not on your hand use any cards you have and try to lure any remaining buffs in your opponents hand before lighting the Dimeritium bomb.

    I am learning how not to play Stellaris by failing through my first major playthrough. For starters, colonies are important. And it's hard to colonize when you are fond of arctic environments but the universe keeps sending you deserts. ;_;

    Memo to past self: trust your instincts earlier, and invest in uplifting that mindless pre-sentient wildlife on the desert planet you infiltrate with a droid colony ship. Use the grateful, uplifted, enslaved populace to get as many colonies as possible and farm through their resources to create a better navy. Do not wait so late in the game to start collecting all the colonies via this method.

    Speaking of the navy! Learn how to use the ship designer way way way before your 500th turn. Upgrade your fleet frequently, and not when you happen to be under attack by two huge nations. You do not have 300 turns to get things right before you're smushed. I'm sorry you learned this on Ironman mode too late.

    Sincerely, the smushed Chairman of the trill race who enslaved Gaudiguch, but Gaudiguch was freed by benevolent aliens who thought she was a Collectivist monster.

    I liked your discovery of the ship designer. :P

    "Have you updated your ship design at all?"
    "I do upgrade!! Uh...maybe."

    So my character's father's brother just died in CKII and didn't have an heir. I ended up inheriting the entire sultanate of Egypt.. And i am a devout Christian. It's going to be a lot of fun to deal with the Sunni/Shia divide in my court. At least i get to keep my feudal government form. Iqta is a little bit more complicated with decadence, Islam and all that.

    Just finished Quantum Break last night and about to start Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands
  • TarkentonTarkenton Traitor Bear Member Posts: 2,555 Transcendent
    So just started playing the first Dishonored. Wow. I'm playing how I want (high chaos atm, heh) to get to use all the nifty weapons and powers and such, and later I'll probably try a no kill playthrough.

    And then there's the dlcs...

    I was investigating steam achievements the other day. I find it odd that only about 9% of the people who have bought the game have ever completed Pillars of Eternity. Granted it has a lot of text and requires a bigger attention span than 3 - 5 minutes but it's a good game. One where you don't understand the plot completely until the very end.
    I have been wanting to have enough time to pick up The white march for Pillars of Eternity but as it stands. I would never have enough time to actually concentrate and dig into it.

    Every time I try to play Pillars, I can only play for maybe an hour or so before I save and quit. It's so slow that I can't really play it for an extended period of time, because I get bored. I don't, like, hate it? But I'm pretty sure I will never finish it.

    I've sunk I don't know how many days into Pillars of Eternity.  I get pretty far in, then... something happens.  Work picks up, another shiny game comes along, something. Then I come back to Pillars and feel compelled to start over.  Rinse, repeat.

    Would not recommend Ghost Recon Wildlands unless you're into meh story and frustrating vehicle controls.

    Going to play State of Decay now

    Salt and Sanctuary, like it says on the box, is Dark Souls in 2D. It's almost a 1 to 1 mapping of Dark Souls mechanics, atmosphere, and storytelling, but it's still pretty satisfying.

    I may not be able to resist, actually. The animation is just too good. 
    I caved and treated myself because, so many stressful emails today. ;_; Anyway, the characters are delightful, and the little social interactions feel so natural. Would say if you enjoy social links in Persona games, or the interactions in, say, Undertale or Oxenfree, this is a great game to play.

    It is legitimately hard deciding which characters to spend time with, omg. Bea the crocodile is my current favorite though.

    Also Mae is very much her own character. If you're interested in shaping your character through your choices, the ability to do that is pretty limited! I don't personally mind that, but some people I know do. (Mae as a character does a lot of things I wouldn't choose to do personally, heh.)
    It was a long time coming, but I finally picked up Night in the Woods. Gregg rulz ok.

    is it okay to ship characters that are already a canon couple?

    A friend bought me EU IV and a couple DLCs, my Austrian Empire already spans most of middle europe....after a spirited but bad attempt at Castile first.
  • LehkiLehki Member Posts: 1,168 Fabled
    My brother introduced me to Hollow Knight, which has action-platformer gameplay, metroidvania style exploration, but what really hooked me was the slowly pieced out story and trying to figure out what the heck happened to this ruined kingdom.

    Also all of the characters and enemies are various bug people and everything is just beautiful looking and well designed and mysterious.

    What y'all getting for the summer Steam sale? I'm trying to snag a few Stellaris DLCs, but idk if there's anything else worth getting.

    Off the top of my head I'd recommend: Undertale, Stardew Valley, the Tales games, Final Fantasy, and Paradox stuff that is on sale. And if you ever wanted to play Amnesia: The Dark Descent, it's super cheap right now.

    Nothing leaped out at me... which is good because I have Adult Obligations tying up my money for a while anyways.

    I'm just going to skip this summer sale and play CKII.
  • PhoebusPhoebus tu fui, ego eris. Member Posts: 1,888 Transcendent
    I'm probably skipping this one. I have too many games I don't play already.
  • TarkentonTarkenton Traitor Bear Member Posts: 2,555 Transcendent
    Picked up Hollow Knight. Transformers Devastation for me and my kiddo to play together. One or two other Metroidvanias I've had my eyes on for a while.

    Still can't justify picking up Stellaris or any of their games, tbh.
