I don't play 7 Days with assholes.  Problem solved.

I have pretty much been reduced to the likes of LEGO games and Assassin's Creed, with the brightest star and best hope for me being Mafia III.  But after that?  Probably AC and AC-ish games, like Mad Max or something.

Why am I homeless?  Why do all you motherfuckers need homes is the real question.

Yep. And half of me likes the bugs in 7 Days that allows a safe base, half of me wants them closed. But that game would be so brutal without them.

I've long said that only f13 servers have been worth playing multiplayer, at least since I used to play in a bf1942 clan. League/ladder level play on team servers is really fucking awesome, pubbing sucks hard (unless you're a clan rolling onto a pub for lols, but that kinda sucks for the pubbers).

Funny, the first time I ever played Left 4 Dead was with f13 folks and one of them TK'd me with a molotov cocktail right at the end of the game.

For all but a very few f13ers, I'd laugh about that just as if I was playing split-screen with someone. It's different when someone you like is doing it, vs some random sociopath or known sociopath.

I've only had two negative experiences with f13 servers/guilds. But one was a known dickbag and the other was a ringer brought in to have more warm bodies. On the whole I've had great experiences playing stuff with f13 folks.

Played through steamworld dig 2, its alrighte but hollow knight was better in all ways, cheaper, more content, areas were far more interesting and more challenging.

A weekend that contained some attempts to have a father/daughter duo game of Epic Fortnite. 

Which turned into a marathon session and then a further marathon session with Husband/wife team because 'it looked fun'.

It is fun.  Enormous fun.  Though you really ought to prepare yourself to get utterly owned by two Chinese Teenagers.

It's also a strange game where you can come fourth just by avoiding most people.

Hahah weirdly I can report having almost the same weekend just replace Fortnite with PUBG. My daughter and I played 10 rounds and got thoroughly trounced by all the teenagers. Our best finish was in a game where we both AFKed for about 10 minutes and came 5th.

I love the fact that you can play the game as an explorer/stealth player using some intelligence and patience. I've come 2nd twice with only 1 or 2 kills. (At some point though you gotta beat someone in a gun fight, I prefer it to be the last someone)

I was slightly concerned that PUBG is both more complex and more realistic.

However, the cartoon style of Fortnite really impressed Elena, so the decision was made.

So a quick look I notice that it's available for PC (but not on steam, boo), the PvP version is free?Huh What's the catch?

Yes, the lack of steam pissed me off since I spent ages looking for it on there, but the signup and launcher isn't as bad as the usual shite, so that's good.

The PvP BattleRoyale bit is free.  I suspect due to the fact that marks like Elena will look at the youtube for the zombie game and say 'Dad, we could get that.'  Meaning, 'Dad, get that now you cunt.'

So it's a good marketing tool I guess.

I'll give it a try, hopefully less traumatic on my 4year old PC too. Good to know that I'm not the only one with a daughter like that, Cecelia is 8 going on 18.

Family is back to being addicted to Stardew Valley. Wife is the worst as the cell phone/ipad/book has been replaced by the Switch for idle time. No, you cannot play one more day, it's dinner time.

Otherwise it's Xenoblade Chronicles 2 (nearly at 100 hours) and Minecraft with the son. I'll be getting back to Risen once I've cleared something off the current lineup. Then perhaps Mario Odyssey once Risen is done.

I finished Night in the Woods, Battle Chef Brigade & Pyre, all of which I liked quite a bit.  Also played some Mario Odyssey and Mario and Rabids with the kids.  I cannot stand the Rabids, which is a shame because otherwise I think the game would be pretty decent.

Currently playing some Persona 4 and a little SFV here and there.

No catch (yet). The PvE game which came out first and is the worst of the worst in terms of progression tied to loot boxes and RNG is basically subsidizing the development of the Battle Royale mode (technically it's a different team but it's the same company).

Geez, you people.  You should go outside and get some sun.  It'll dry up the spots on your face.    Your kids need vitamin D.  It'll give you energy and clear some of the blood clots in your legs.  Wear sunglasses because you don't want to shock your eyes and go blind.  Take a shower.  Clean out your cupboard and toss the Doritos and beer.

Yeah, the resolutions all messed up and the sound is a bit wonky and, frankly, someone should have worked a bit harder to make it more fun and gamey.

All of the criticisms of the game are true, but I'm having a great time with it.

I actually got hooked on a playthrough of Baldur's Gate: EE. It's interesting to see how some of the things from that game, beloved as it is by people, were also things that successive waves of design have worked to take out (thankfully). Inventory management is so stabby, dealing with redistributing everything when someone dies is an enormous pain in the ass, some spells are ridiculously overpowered (as per D&D rules, I guess), and while it was fun to hear Minsc again for an hour or two, listening to the catch-phrases for most of the NPCs gets really, really old after a while. etc.

Still fun to do it--it's been so long that I don't remember a lot of the specifics--but it's also great to realize how much better a lot of basic RPG design has gotten on some of the smaller mechanics.

I picked up Overcooked on my PS4, partly because I dimly remembered hearing someone here talking about it.  Playing it in short bursts with the GF, who is a complete video game noob.  We're both having a blast.  A+.

I got it for the Switch. Kids and wife love it. Controls are good, even with the joy-cons.

I would master-tier support a Kickstarter by Square-Enix to remaster Chrono Trigger with modern day flair. Not that cheesy graphic shite they did with the recent FFV or FFVI remakes; something akin to what they're doing with FFVII. All time best game ever, bar none.

Currently playing through Zelda on the Switch, and The Division on PC when Switch is charging or something else is going on.

I thought I would, but haven't yet, give Conan Exiles another go since they claim to have worked hard on it since my last bout.  I'm wondering whether to use a few mods that have been made to make it a bit easier to get started and play in single player mode.  I haven't been playing much of anything lately.  I can't seem to maintain interest.  I play some of my past MMORPGs and twenty minute :sad_panda:s later I've wandered off.  I've modded the fuck out of some but eventually I lose interest.  I feel like a dinosaur waiting for a meteor. 

I think maybe a survival game that isn't horror, has crafting, building, single player or no pvp and can be played casually.  But not one of those cartoon-y or block-y ones.  Nothing too intense.  Is that Conan?

I have no groove left.

I feel like I'd like something in that space--that had other players, that wasn't sociopathic, that wasn't full of zombies, that let you build interesting things, that had a big world to explore with lots of surprises.

One of the really off-putting things about some of the big games in this domain is the "if you're offline, people can kill you/rob you/lock you up and destroy everything you've built" approach to persistance. That seems like such a bad bad idea at the core of it, even though I get how that makes persistence into something really...persistent!
