I fell into a hole filled with Bloodborne and Horizon: Zero Dawn. Been a while since I've played anything this good.

I've become bored and frustrated lately so I'm playing that Drakensang Online.  I played it for a small time ages ago but it's much better now.  Sort of.  You no longer have to collect weird stuffs to ID things.  That alone makes a HUGE difference.  You find the cash shop money in the game in small amounts but pretty frequently.  Fast enough that I don't even feel tempted by the shop.  But most of all you don't really have to think.  Mostly just kill things.  Thinking is overrated sometimes.

The Witcher 3 is an amazing game.

You should also read the Black Company.

Decided to go from frustrating, boring experience in LOTRO to Elder Scrolls Online, kind of feeling MMO-ish.

I actually like it so far. I'm surprised at how much it actually feels like an Elder Scrolls game, in fact.

In Modded Minecraft today, I beat a flying fireball spitting Ghast in the Nether down to half a heart with my Fist, so I could trap it in a Cursed Lasso, so I could make something to give myself gain the ability to fly.

Means nothing but thought I would share, as it involved me going a little nuts chasing them, and trying to trap on in a space low enough so I could attack them.

Pro-tip: You can use an EnderIO Soul Vial to easily capture a Ghast and then release into a box room with one tiny opening in so you can then safely punch it to half a heart for your angel ring. If you have EnderIO installed ofc.

I picked up the free Starpoint Gemini 2 yesterday because, well, free. So far it's not too bad, although the voice acting is hilariously bad. And unskippable, grr. Other than that it might be a better space game than Elite: Dangerous.  Oh ho ho ho. Reallllly?

Oh the tutorials, such as they are, are total wank. The controls and UI are a bit shonky too. Took me a bit of fiddling to work it out, and trying the different views for different situations too. A few browses through the control binds helped a lot actually.

I actually made my first angel ring because of the wonky way Draconic Evolution progression works. Go from creative flight Zivicio armor to non-flight Wyvern to creative flight Draconic. Didn't need it too long, but definitely didn't want to be without flight very long!

Went to download SG2, saw it was already in my library with .3 hours played. Ok, then.

Fiancee hates when I say wonky (what does that even mean!?), she'll LOVE 'shonky'.

Wonky and shonky are entirely different words though.  Wonky means not working as intended or quirky, whereas shonky usually indicates illegality or deliberate malice.

Over here, anyway.

For instance, your posting is wonky, while Speedy's must surely be actively shonky.

Wonky means bent, crooked, not straight. Shonky is a combination of shoddy and wonky. Wanky is like wonky with extra shonky.

Still pootling about in Starpoint Gemini 2. Discovered how to capture ships, dumped all my skill points into troop skills, got a couple of crew members with bonuses to transporters, got some appropriate augments, went hunting. Now flying a goddamned battleship cruiser at level 9. Had to install a mod to remove rank restrictions on ships though. Much fun.

It's a marketing tactic that may well have paid off for them. I am now definitely interested in the just-released SPG-Warlords, whereas before I'd never have given it a second glance.

Edit: I bought it. Available here for 13/$17.

I bought a Switch with Kart, Zelda and Disgaea 5. I hope the system does well over time, it's a super-slick idea. It has so much less of the wank factor that the Wii does and the hot-dockable concept from TV to handheld should be the way all systems work going forward.

That's a milestone.  My complaints so far all center on the controllers which I believe even Japanese would say are too small.  Playing Zelda is not a problem, but I gave up trying to play Mario Kart with the HalfJoyCon.

Been playing Assassin's Creed Syndicate since I got home.

Played some Mario Kart with some friends a couple of weeks ago. I had no problem with the mini joycon things, although I do have tiny girl hands. I wouldn't want to use them for longer than the 10 mins or so between rounds we were doing.

How to break SPG2: choose Engineer class, put all your skill points into Rift/Radiation, maybe a few in Trap. Radiation does % of hull damage per second, ignoring shields, to all hostiles within ~600m. Melt entire enemy fleets of carriers in seconds.

Got back into MechWarrior and I actually don't mind the new skill system that much.  It's a complete fucking rip off if you require to respect, of course, but I made myself some new wee improvements on my mechs and crushed a lot of enemies.  I don't know what's going on, but either everyone's a retard today, I've got hugely better, or I'm stuck in some shit tier.  One of the three.

In other news, truly, truly jonesing for some kind of RPG, Roguelike, adventure dungeon delve thing and I'm coming up short.  What happened to the grand old days of warriors and wizards anyway ?


Also, I took SPG as far as I think I'm going to;  there are a LOT of gamebreaking things in there that just show you what the whole game is gonna be like and I'm like 'Nah.'

Yeah, I'm done with it too, pretty good for free but as you say, easily broken. I'll give Warlords a go some time but not now.

You tried Grim Dawn? Was a decent enough Diablo-alike for a while.
