    No, but it's harder to sell loot boxes in single player games.

    I play games to get away from other people. and i just get left behind in multiplayer games or just annoy my fellow players with my slowness and lack of stealth.
    Playing Fortnite with my nephew is no fun at all. :D

    I love the idea of multi player, but I just don't have the time to invest to meet any kind of standard, gaming is to much of an occasional thing for me, because of real life.

    I realized it had reached last days of rome stature when I read an article on some controversy surrounding 'boobie streaming'. First the article informed me that people live stream games and other peopl watch them play and give them money because nothing makes sense in this world anymore, bitcoins and hashtags. Then it informed me that some clearly sad sad individuals had been monitoring these twitch streams to see if any women were streaming while wearing a low cut top, thus 'booby streaming' attracting viwers for the boobs not for the thrilling sight of watching some cunt play a fucking computer game. At this point I am mentally preparing a vast re-education program.

    Slightly more comprehensible was the ire over certain Hearts of Iron mods, and other paradox games modded that let you basically re-run ww2 as a dictator, or win the crusades etc. The article was saying how the scene has become a cesspit for sad nazi cunts who like playing holocaust or crush the saracen etc. That I can make sense of, its an evil thats knownin my frames of reference rather than just confusing me

    Yeah many people complain about that on Twitch! I remember seeing a 'creative' stream where a woman was just jiggling her tits and all she drew was a couple of black lines on a piece of paper...

    I think there is an argument as to why women feel the need to show boob in order to get views, its like how some people complain about how a business woman might dress provocatively in a high level meeting etc. Are women simply ignored if they don't dress like that???

    Slay the Spire. Decent roguelike card game thing. In the sale even though it's early access :rolleyes:. Finished it on my 9th go though so not sure I want to go back again. Maybe when it's finished.

    Just picked up The Witness for £8. It's as good as the reviews say, at least the hour I've played so far.

    I'm an idiot.

    I am knackered, every morning for weeks I have woken at 5am at the latest and I'm not one of those people that can go back to bed, so I'm really tired.
    Last night I found steam on my laptop and had a look at the choices for linux, I apparently have a lot of linux compatible games.

    One of those is Prison Architect.

    I went to bed very late last night.

    My current PA game has been about five-six hours so far. And I'm still paused and laying down the initial blueprints

    Playing Atila total war at the moment. Steep learning curve!

    Tried out Darkest Dungeon, I'm not overly fond of the art style and it's just to randomly willing to fuck you over and the difficulty is off the scale.

    Two great games for under £1.50 on Steam right now - The Silent Age, a point and click time swapping thing, and Life Goes On, a puzzle platformer where you have an infinite supply of knights whose corpses you have to use to progress.

    Both games are simple, amusing and stylish-looking.

    Am I the only Overwatch player (on ps4) who thinks the game is really broken right now?

    Just got Legend of Zelda Skyward sword back on the Wii. Its not bad.

    I've never completed a game since Prince of Persia (the original DOS game), so will attempt it again.

    I’m really stretching out Zelda on the Switch. I got the DLC and I’m also doing every shrine before I go near the endgame.

    When I decide to go round every Korok seed you’ll know I’ve gone a bit too far. It’s just really relaxing, though - on the train to work I can wander around lovely hills and mountains and hear that cute squeaky noise that foxes make when they notice you and run away.

    Oh and what really stretches things out if you get the DLC is not the new quests but the “hero’s journey” thing which shows you where you’ve been on the map in blue, so you can make sure to visit every fucking square inch of Hyrule and pick every mushroom. I was nicking pigeons’ eggs this afternoon.

    Finished Banner Saga 3. Got the worst ending and everybody died. :( Might replay it when I feel ready for the misery again.

    Started playing Star Traders. It's interesting. Not sure about it at the minute.

    temporarily trapped on a netbook so I opted for a rougealike, chose dungeons of dredmor which is like the Colin Hunt of roguealikes, not only is it not funny the monsters are shit. So I sacked that off for Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup which is much more like it. I'll never get near 'beating' the game so I'm playing it as I did original rogue, just see how far your man can get before he dies

    There's a thread somewhere about Dungeon Crawl. In the many years I've been playing it through many versions I've never won once.

    that threads got a useful wiki on it, ta. I'll bump it when I have a death worth speaking of.

    Speaking of old games, I'm back on Neverwinter Nights because it's been re-released and the persistent world I used to play on is still running .. so that's fun.

    And NwN is a fantastic RPG, in part because of all the user-generated content that now exists for it (and because 3.5 was the best version of D&D, ooh bit o politics there...)

    edit, muh typz

    Onrush.

    It's insane. Really enjoying the crashes/ridiculous air/landing on an enemy etc but finding the whole teamwork thing a bit weird. Sometimes my team win and I've no idea why. Still good though.
