hmm. there might have been some changes since I last played Factorio. I don't remember anything beyond red and green?

Yeah there's 7 science packs now.  Oh ho ho ho. Reallllly?

So I've now got a 20+ hour game on the go, with pretty wimpy map settings (many resources, few aliens) and still haven't got the last 2 science packs being produced. The yellow ones will be easy enough once I get my iron & copper production ~doubled but the Space Science ones need satellites and a rocket silo so they're a way off yet.

One of these days I'll actually get sufficient iron & copper set up at the start instead of running out half way through the game like I usually do.

Making items that have a long production time (engines, grenades, etc.) be ingredients to science packs has really messed up all my layouts and strategies.  It's *almost* like playing a completely new game.

Yup, when I've had no idea at all as I've been adding offshoots from my main bus just what kind of impact it's going to have. I'm just having to decide now if I'm going to set up trains to outposts to pull in more iron & oil of if I can do it with belts & pipes. I've never done trains before so I have very little idea what I'm doing with them.

Tell you what though, the tank has been buffed massively. Just the machine gun with some AP ammo is enough to tear through early biter bases, it's great fun!

Edit: Uh-oh. Put down some solar manufacturing and started throwing the logistics network down and everything nosedived. Need more infrastructure!  awesome, for real

Just completed Thimbleweed Park, really enjoyed it. The dialog and voice acting, really well done. Not quite at the level of Monkey Island, but still a return to form for Gilbert.

I'm going to escape, come back, wipe this place off the face of the Earth, obliterate it and you with it.

Got bogged down in minecraft (the sparseness of galacticraft planets is always a let-down), fired up Witcher 3 on a whim. Hadn't ported over my savegame, decided to start a new game as a refresher. After completely scouring the newbie area clean, decide to continue through the Baron parts again on the new game....

Such an amazing game, but ye gods I don't have the time for this!

Had the itch of playing something non-violent Caesar3-esque and discovered that I had Cities: Skylines in my Steam account. Weekend gone and I think I re-built LA traffic wise.

Thea: The Awakening is on sale, picked it up. Kind of a neat fantasy strategy-RPG game where you have a village, harvest resources, interesting crafting system, and from this village base you supply, equip and dispatch RPG expedition parties to explore dungeons/map and complete quests by moving them around the hex world map. Another twist, the battles in card game format and pretty quick. Would really recommend to anyone especially for 10$.

Picked up WH:Vermintide in the sale, just spent much longer playing it than I planned. Light gameplay but fun.

I finished Prey the night before last.  About 30 hours, but I did wander a bunch and do most of the side-quests.  Enjoyed it a bunch.  I expect some people will really, really hate the ending, but it worked well enough for me.

Tip for those who want to balance side-questing and exploring with the main questline:  You can follow the main quest ahead pretty freely (and you'll need to do so especially if you want access to the wackier neuromods), but I suggest pausing at the point it takes you down to the Power Plant, as after you finish that leg of it (and a smaller action just after), the situation on the station changes significantly, making it much more difficult to wrap up your sidequests and such.

The specific action after the Power Plant part of the main quest is:

Went back to FFXIV after last playing it in 1.0 (so well before reboot). It's come a long way and kind of fun to just kick back and play it with a ps3 controller on tv instead of my usual mmo-style (in front of a monitor and with a mouse+kb+n52e).

Played the ashes of ariendel dlc for dark souls 3, friede kicked my ass so bad. Not exactly the best boss to return to after a year hiatus. Had a one hit left wipe and had to suffer lots more pain until i finally got her. Ringed city next. Worst part is that I don't really like the weapon i have on my save, not enough reach on my dark blade, compared to the washing pole i use on my ng+ character.

I'm messing around with EQ2 again and actually finding it entertaining: it still satisfies the "one more quest before logging off" old-school itch; no 10000% bonus XP crap while leveling, lots of stuff to do even as a F2P (well, of course :P); slow combat, animations, mobs placed in wide open areas for no reason...you know the drill. Welcome to pre-WoW era (well, yeah, with the exception of Vanguard).

Sigh, what's wrong with me.

I started playing some pretty dire alpha D&D style tactical game I found for a few dollars on steam, which lead me to pull out BG:EE again.

What a great shame that there hasn't been a RPG of BG, BG2 quality since them.

Edit: I should note that the last few years of updates to the Enhanced Editions seems to have been quite good. Can't see myself going back to the older versions now.

Finished Prey. It was rather good. Started a new game straightaway. 3rd act got aggravating, as this style of game always does, but it was at least expected. Ending was abrupt and stinger was obvious, but there were moments of greatness in the game.  The actual looking glass tech was really good and well done I thought.

Went back to LOTRO for a week, ended up hating the quest design so much by the time I got to Misty Mountains that I really couldn't continue. Just some terrible shitty design ideas that deserve to be expunged by cancellation. Every once in a while it clicked with me but mostly I hated it way more than when I played it last.

Opinions on Payday 2?  They are making a VR conversion, but I know nothing about the game.  I understand it is meant to be a co-op game, but is there anything like a decent single player game to be found here?

You can play it single player but it's pretty terrible like that IMO.  Once you set off an alarm (and you will definitely do that the first few runs) cops spawn endlessly for the rest of the game and you have to sit there and soak up bullets because your dipshit AI teammates won't do objectives and you often can't fight back while you're doing it.  It's basically "Regenerating Health: The Game".
