Agreed that Oblivion sucks. Worst of the Elder Scrolls. I'd rather run around getting stuck in impossible-to-complete quests and falling through the map in Daggerfall than play the weary grind of all those pointless oblivion gates again.

I am currently paralyzed by Witcher 3. I am basically sick of playing it, but loathe to switch to another game because I know I probably will never come back and finish it if I do.

My bf and I have been playing Minecraft together for the last few days and it's annoyingly addictive. I did play it for a bit when it first came out until I crashed my boat and lost my place and gave up lol, but it's much more fun with someone else. We've been focused on developing our house and base and farm which took a while to build, but it's pretty cool.

I ended up with a SNES Classic. I have yet to decide if I'm going to open it and play games, or sell it.

I finished the first one! Guess what's for credits! Awesome :woot:


It's not in the remastered version so that's one reason to play this version. Buuuut control over ships in the old version really lacking, and it looks like the new version has more interface.

Currently playing Fallout 4 (love the gameplay, but miss the New Vegas fun, the "story" in 4 is embarrassing.They should just let Obsidian do that aspect of the games.),

Also playing Mario Odyssey which is beyond great and I also got Skyrim for the Switch because I never played it and wanted something like Fallout on the go. I only played it on the plane the other day, but it made a 2h trip feel like 5 minutes.

Also extremely disappointed in the Animal Crossing phone game, so much so that I had to start a new AC:New Leaf game to wash the aftertaste.

I now officially hate not playing a game on the Switch, because it has allowed me to play games on a completely different level. I just hope developers keep releasing my backlog on it.

Probably old news by now, but I really recommend playing or watching a let's play of Doki Doki Literature Club. A truly special game / visual novel. Read as little as possible about it on beforehand!

Watched a let's play. Not really worth the long build up tbh. This visual novel looks more interesting

A few days ago my wife casually brought up Nintendo Switch out of the blue and mentioned how much fun Splatoon looked when she saw someone playing it at her friend's house.

I took the hint, and got her one for Christmas.


Set it up last night, and watching her try to play the instructional level of Splatoon 2 took me back to my childhood of watching my grandparents try to play video games. She simply could not grasp the controls. This is a woman who literally grew up playing NES and SNES, and had no trouble with other stuff like Katamari Damacy. But she gave up on Splatoon 2 without even finishing the intro level.

Coming from the NES/SNES era, those analogue joysticks aren't that easy to get used to. I had the same problem after a long Nintendo hiatus, going from the SNES to the Wii. I still prefer the classic 4-point controls over the analogue sticks. Something like Splatoon, which is quite aim-heavy isn't the best game to get into it either. Then again, if she played PS games she should be used to this sticks already, so not sure what the problems are exactly.

I love the Switch controllers, especially in fully detached mode.

And if you're into JRPGs, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 (the first one was pure bliss). Also Fast RMX is great if you're looking for an F-Zero alternative.

My better half has started playing Super Mario Odyssey, which is fantastic, and she's doing a bit better with the controls. I have already finished the main game portion, and am now working on all the additional moons and levels and whatnot.

I am hopeful that after she has spent some more time in Super Mario, she will be able to go back and play Splatoon successfully.



I have also started on Zelda Breath of the Wild, and it's quite a departure from the previous incarnations, but still quite good so far. However, I am not too keen on the mechanic of the weapons breaking so often, as it's sort of ridiculous that I can only swing a club half a dozen times before it is destroyed.



I have had mixed results with JRPGs. Sometimes they grab me, and sometimes not. My wife is definitely anti-RPG so I probably won't be picking one up any time soon. However, Mario Kart is a likely near future purchase. Stardew Valley would also be attractive, but I already have it on Steam.

And my wife loves the Layton games, so hopefully they release one for Switch soon.

They do break quickly, on the other hand there are plenty of weapons and it does push you to look for different approaches. You can accomplish a lot more if you don't rely on battling only.

I did finally beat Breath of the Wild recently actually. It's pretty great. Probably just me but Zelda in this game kind of reminded me of Grimes.

Just finished A boy and his Blob. The controls are a bit clunky and finicky in a few places but it has pretty good level design for a puzzle platformer and is, for the most part, forgiving enough to make up for the controls.

I don't play often, but the best games I've played in the last year were Getting Over It with Bennett Foddy and West of Loathing.



Getting Over It with Bennett Foddy is a very frustrating minimalist "platformer" meta-game from the creator of QWOP (which everyone probably has tried a long time ago at least for a minute). I honestly prefer to watch other people play it more than actually play it myself as I am not the kind of person who finds this type of challenges enjoyable, but I find the whole idea and realization incredible. I never thought that a fourth-wall-breaking voice-over narration can work so well in games.

And West of Loathing is a silly absurdist comedy RPG/adventure (of the kind where you spent 70% of time reading) in the Western setting. All game systems are very basic and paired down, but the writing is so good (here's a sample of it at 19:41 about spittoons). I recommend it especially if you like Monty Python and puns.

The weapon thing in Breath of the Wild is fine once you get your weapon menu bigger, by the end of the game you will always have way more weapons then you need.

I just 100% finished Mario Odyssey with 880 moons. Some were quite challenging but I had a blast. The one I hate the most is the jump rope, because it's so tedious. I got to 51 jumps legit and then looked it up and saw there was a glitch you could get to just freeze Mario over the rope. The glitch might be harder to trigger than the actual jumping 100 times, but it was way more fun then doing it. Took me about 30 minutes to trigger it.

Some of the Dark Side of the Moon scarecrow challenges are pretty tough and of course the final moon Darker Side is a real tough cookie, but once you memorize each segment it's doable.

Between Halloween and Christmas I've managed to finish The Evil Within and The Evil Within 2. I quite liked the latter and found it much better. The narrative was engaging and the villains really great, especially Valentino.


Now, I'm currently playing Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. It's been fun exploring Prague but can't seem to grab me as Human Revolution did. The latter is a fav of mine.


Anyway, I spotted a funny easter egg from my childhood:

The name is actually Zoltar but the first thing that occured to me when I saw that was "I wish I was BIG!". The next morning I wasn't Tom Hanks though..

They alos bought me a voucher for a mountain and hiking shop and a hiking guide for the nearest mountain range.

I guess they don't want to see me that often in the future? :think: ;)

:lol:

Finished Arcanum which caused me to quit watching movies for a few weeks. Another interesting but largely flawed true-RPG. It has a steampunk edge, so it was a must for me. 6 down*, 4 to go on the Codex list.

*includes the two Fallout games that I had to resort to watching on YouTube because of the 1st's time limit and the 2nd's save file corruption (even though it was fairly early in the game, I don't restart)

I've gotten back into oldschool Runescape recently lol. I first started playing Runescape in 2004 (first time I used the username 'mightysparks'), became a member 2-4 weeks later and played it pretty regularly for about 2 years. I started a new account on oldschool and have to start from the beginning which is frustrating because I had done most of the quests and things like that. I still remember most of the map, I think I spent more time in this world than any other game world, and I still remembered where certain things were and which cities had banks etc. I can't play games for very long because my hands get sore after a while and the click-intensive nature means I don't last long. I can't really binge play it but it's ok because it's nice to just play for 30-60 minutes for a break between homework and just do a bit of skilling or a quest or something. I'm itching to get membership because all my favourite skills and places are member's only and so many quests argh. But it's so expensive. I'm trying to hold off until I graduate/get a full time job but idk.

I like it coz of stuff like, yesterday I was doing a quest and I needed a redberry pie, so I got the things I needed and went to make the pie but realised I needed level 10 cooking and I was level 8. So I killed some chickens for a while (lvl up hp and atk) and collected their bones (to lvl up prayer), feathers (for arrows) and the meat (for cooking) and eventually leveled up and made my pie and did the quest. I like the grind and all the other things you can do in the mean time, like working on 3-4 skills at once even if just gathering materials and stuff. I wish the new Runescape wasn't really lame but it's like classic Runescape is always preserved how it should be I suppose - the grand exchange didn't exist when I first played and you had to buy and haggle in chat which I always got my brother to do for me, so I'm happy the GE is there even if it's not 'original' RS. My bro had also been playing again over the last few months and gave me a few things to boost me along, just like old times lol.

Oh no, brings back memories. Runescape is great, I think I played from 2007-ish to 2011-ish. I reckon it contributed quite well to my learning of English. I got to a fairly advanced state (and also had membership for the second half of my playing time), I was close to beating the final boss from the second Grandmaster quest. A shame, it's probably impossible for me to log-in to that account anymore, it might've been worth something (though if I actually knew my nic and password I'd obviously never think of selling it).

Fuck it, I'm going to join you on the nostalgia trip and make a new OldSchool Runescape account (so glad they made this mode happen). I remember most locations well too, but it's going to be a delight exploring them again.

Eh, it's not fun when you start from 0. Was nice to listen to the music again though.

Hope I can somehow locate my old account, but that's probably impossible.

whom shall we find
Sufficient? who shall tempt with wand’ring feet
The dark unbottom’d infinite Abyss,
And through the palpable obscure find out
His uncouth way, or spread his aerie flight,
Upborn with indefatigable wings,
Over the vast abrupt, ere he arrive
The happy Ile?

Nur dein Auge – ungeheuer / Blickt michs an, Unendlichkeit!

Fuck it, I'm going to join you on the nostalgia trip and make a new OldSchool Runescape account (so glad they made this mode happen). I remember most locations well too, but it's going to be a delight exploring them again.
Eh, it's not fun when you start from 0. Was nice to listen to the music again though.

Yeah it's frustrating starting from scratch. I remembered most of the quests that I had to redo and I already know the skilling 'tricks', or at least the things I used to do, so it's like argh I've got to do all this hard work AGAIN, but it's also been so long that it's kind of nice starting from scratch in some ways. I played on mute most times I played because I listen to my own music, but Medieval was always my fave tune.

Still playing and enjoying OS Runescape. I set up a second monitor so I could play RS on one screen and do homework on the other screen and being able to play and work at the same time has greatly increased my productivity. Bit slower doing the homework, but I get more done. And I can do the slow grind-y RS stuff without getting bored. I reaaaaaaaaaaalllllllly want membership and I'm probably going to get it, even just for a month or so, once I finish my last assessment of the semester. I wish I could catch up to my old account already, but it's going to take forever. I'm combat level 25 at the moment, working on getting all my skills to level 20 (very close!), then 30 and so on. Once I get membership I'll probably start working on skills for quests. So excited for more quests!

Bard's Tale IV is nearing release later this year, so lately I've been replaying through the original 80's Bard's Tale. It's a bit more grindy than I remember, but it also doesn't require a lot of attention in the grindy parts.

Been playing Frostpunk the last few days and really enjoying it. I was playing an idle browser game that was kind of similar and then came across Frostpunk which is like a better, harder version. After playing about 5-6 games, I just beat the first scenario. I really like resource management stuff so yea I really like this.
