    steveo87 Procrastinating for....a while

    Sat in my new flat, FINALLY got my PS4 out of storage, no Wi-Fi but never mind I'm happy to play off line - a bit of Pro Ego.
    Sit down and turn it on, get as far as the intro and my controller dies. Where's the cable?

    It's at my mums...:mad::mad::mad::(:(

    :facepalm:

    I'm having a pop at Portal 2. Oldie but goodie.
    Wish they'd made another.

    Yeah it looks very good, enjoyed Wargame a lot.



    I am unaware of what this means.

  5. The wish list feature on Steam is brilliant. I used it as a reminder for games I liked the look of but you get emailed when they're on sale!

    Eight quid for City Skylines. Of course. Cheers.

    Injustice 2, where a grown man (me) attempts to play thumb yoga on a console controller against twitch kids from across time and space.

    In other words, a superhero fighting game where Darkseid is beaten up by a girl.

    Starcrawlers.

    I backed it on Kickstarter about 3 years ago, and they finally released it.

    It's....superb. Really, really good. Loads of little touches.

    Dungeon Master but in the future.

    Been playing Age Of Empires II recently, after reinstalling it following a hard disk wipe. It's still great, 18 years after it was released.

    caned it on rayman last night. After what felt like a difficulty spike had put me off I went back after a few weeks rest. Back in the game

    Just give it a rest once you've finished off all the main levels. Some of those "Invaded!" ones are outright impossible to master and you'll hurl the controller/keyboard at a wall.

    Skyrim remastered, I forgot how good this game was, in fact I wouldn't even call it a game, it's more of a journey. :)
    I'm focusing on lore on this my second play through... something I didn't really care for before, but all the links to ESO etc are so insightful and fascinating they provide a more in depth perspective to the mmo I've been playing for over a year.
    Plus I need to break my ESO Addiction as my life just suddenly got much better for various reasons and I realised I was using ESO to get me through a pretty difficult time.
    Which is fair enough because it worked.. :)
    YAY to living in a virtual fantasy world and loving every minute of it :D

    NoXion Give me space communism or give me death

    I can tell you what I'm not playing any more: Minecraft with the FTB Monster modpack, with a couple of personal additions. It was working great last night, yet this afternoon when I came home to play it, the damn thing doesn't even start when I hit the Play button on the launcher. I've already tried a couple of solutions to no avail.

    Just my fucking luck that this kind of shit happens right as I'm starting to get into the ComputerCraft stuff, in particular the little robots, in order to expedite the construction of my Space Pyramid. I'd just cracked how "for loops" work, and some work got done without risking repetitive strain injury on my part. I was also contemplating writing a more sophisticated program which would allow me to take a more hands-off approach when supervising the robots.

    If this doesn't somehow fix itself, I'll only have Kerbal Space Program to satisfy my technological sandbox cravings. :(

    I've been playing 'world of goo' which cost 3 pounds and is frustrating but fun. Starts to make you think about structures a lot. I say this game is an Educational Tool. Obvs I am not even past third puzzle

    bargain at 3 quid, its pretty and responsive. I've never been much cop at building things though so its a challenge. I've been playing puzzle-platformers recently over run and gun. Rayman is doing my nut tho.

    Got my modded Minecraft working again with a fresh installation, but unfortunately I have lost my previous saves. I am starting my Space Pyramid again from scratch, including the code I wrote to run the robots. I may dedicate the structure to Sisyphus.

    Here's a screenshot of the new setup:

    [​IMG]

    As I approach the base of the pyramid I'll probably start deploying multiple block-laying robots to speed things up a bit.

    Monument Valley 2 exists now, which is making me happy. Apart from one other thing this is the only computer game i've played since 'new zealand story' which must have been about 1962..

    What else exists that's a bit like monument valley?

    Finally got around to starting Pillars of Eternity.

    I have no idea what I'm doing.

    I took on a bear when I shouldn't've. Didn't end well.

    Got to find a pub, apparently.

    "What remains of Edith Finch"

    It's more interactive story than game, really, but it's beautifully-done and curiously affecting - had a couple of wet eye moments and several instances of that feeling where you put your lips tight together and nod, knowingly - sort of a "Yeah, that was inevitable, but it's beautiful and sad and right, whatever the name for that feeling is.

    So yeah, basically, if you like thoughtful and surprising and not exactly tremendous amounts of action but BOATLOADS of feels, give it a try.

    Glowing review of it here (Trigger Warning: Link to the Daily Telegraph, but only the video game section)
