I guess that's part of what sucks about it--those guys have some money hats now, they could have hired some people who knew what the fuck they were doing. But they haven't.

I've owned Conan Exiles for a long time but never actually got around to playing it.  Was the f13 server abandoned because everyone just had enough and moved on, or was it, like, actively bad?

Just another assenting voice to the hive mind -- pretty fun for a while, but lacks depth. That said, if you like survival/building/crafting games you should get some dozens of hours out of it. More fun with other players also building on your server of course. I've actually been seriously thinking of getting some of my minecrafty friends to trying it as a group.

Also never played it full on catass PVP too, so no real opinion of that, except that I no longer care much for full on catass PVP.

It's certainly worth a play through.  I enjoyed it a ton when we were playing, and we all played it pretty heavily for awhile.  Even if you are just doing it single player, there is a lot of content for you to do.  Server only stopped because we had all completed most the content, and finished building out elaborate/insane monuments to ourselves.  Still, that was several months of near constant playing.  Put more hours into that than anything since the old MMO days.

Just also keep in mind you can customize things heavily, and I'd look into doing that to meet your play style.  For instance, we played with max XP gain on our server, so not doing so might feel far more grindy than I dealt with.

I put over 500 hours into Conan Exiles on a server I ran with some RL friends. I modded it based on what we wanted, there wasn't any PVP, I wrote some custom quests for it and added levels and items. It was great fun until it wasn't. I burned out on it hard. I've always kind of wanted to go back and play on a popular PVP server but other things took up my interest. It didn't help that the only new official content added while we played was the pets update which really wasn't that great. The paid cosmetic DLC was kind of cool but every single one of them was just that... cosmetic.

That's true for me of all these types of games. Obsessively binge them until you bust and put them away for a couple of years and then binge again.

The bust usually comes right after some huge construction project that takes weeks of real time and you do it, admire it from all angles, then log off until next year...

Full catass pvp on Conan (as on Ark) is only worth doing if you're playing with a sizeable group of friends or friendlies. I tried it for a few weeks just to see if a wily n00b can survive long enough to build some kind of durable structure. There are places in the map where it takes people a long time to find you and destroy everything but not that long--the map would have to be four or five times as big with a firm cap on accounts to have the space to build a real hideout and build up some kind of lone-wolf strength.

A while ago I grabbed Titanfall 2 (on Xbox (not for Windows)) after watching someone else play it - this is an awesome game. I just finished the campaign and it was really well done. The switching from in-mech to out-of-mech play is very seamless and enjoyable.  (First 15mins of campaign: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KG-ALPfs0Dg | wall running etc shown here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JUBD_eLk8TI) The multiplayer modes are pretty fun too, if you like simplified mech combat (coop and pvp options).

I've also been playing Apex with my brothers recently. It took me a few gaming sessions for me to realize that Titanfall and Apex are in the same universe. You'll see a lot of crossover guns, weapons, and character types. Now if only they would add wall running and jump packs (and maybe even mechs) to Apex, that would be some cool shit.

Iím traveling so I grabbed Luigis Mansion 3 before I left. Itís my favorite Switch game this year. Pretty standard fare for the series, lots of puzzling and sweeping. I wish it were about 25% more difficult, but itís a bunch of fun.

I legitimately believe I will try to 100% it.

After fiddling around to get my Dual Shock 4 working on my PC to play Persona 5, I remembered I bought Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night a while ago and didn't play it because of the same issue. So once I got the controller working I figured I would fire it up for a few minutes, and now I'm hooked. It's fantastic, everything I've wanted from a modern Metroidvania.

Finished Bloodstained last night and loved every minute; best Metroidvania I've played since SotN. I'm going to hold off on NG+ for now, waiting for some of the DLC to come out.

Despite how bad this one sounds, I'm picking up the new Pokemon since my son is incredibly hyped for it. He's young enough that stuff like Dexit doesn't bother him, and I don't want to crush his spirits. So I guess that's next up.

The game itself sounds fine. It has lots of QoL improvements and he'll likely enjoy it. People are bitching and moaning, however, because Pokemon is the richest media franchise in the world but Nintendo continues to refuse to spend enough development money on them to make really great games like they do with some of their other franchises.

Oh I'm certain he'll like it, I'm just unsure how much I'll enjoy it. Hopefully the older Pokemon will be modded in later by third parties, if not patched in directly by Ninty.

Finished The Outer Worlds. It was OK. Not worth any hate, but nothing really outstanding beyond some of the dialog and character arcs. Combat system was less shit than Fallout. It was like a better modern Fallout, but just a lot less of it. It feels like it could have used another year of content generation.

New PoE league in 2 weeks. So, umm, I guess backlog time? Nier, Battletech, Kingdom Come, some janky ass survival sandbox?

Just bought a PS4 Pro in the Black Friday sales, with Horizon Zero Dawn and Gran Turismo Sport for about $10 each. I figure one game to get deeply into and one game for a quick zip around here and there. Haven't had a console of this generation yet (it replaces a PS3 I've stopped using), so a lot of catching up to do.

Lots to catch up on indeed.  I thought everyone had a PS4 at this point.  I have resisted the temptation to upgrade to a Pro, figuring the improvements aren't significant enough for me, and that I can just wait for the PS5.

It is. It's really tame and unambitious. I finished it, but I don't feel a need to ever play it again. It's very well made; it just could have been a lot more interesting.

Playing Battletech. I didn't love it at first, but it's growing on me. I'm pretty bad at this, and the tutorial wasn't great. I suppose I could always read the help. Harebrained Schemes does turn-based very well.

All of you outer worlds people need to post in its own thread.  I, and many others all seem to share your view.  Just nice to see the commentary all in one place.  It as such a swing and a miss.....


Battle tech is as amazing as always, and about the best TBS game Iíve ever played.  Current expansion has a lot.

There's also a mod called Turn-Time Destroyer than can help with turn times if you have it installed when you begin a game.  It wipes out a bunch of minor factions on the opposite end of the map from your starting location that you'd never get to see anyway.

I've been on a new BattleTech binge that brought my total play time over 110 hours while I was waiting for Phoenix Point to appear on the Xbox app, which it didn't.

So I decided to try Vambrace Cold Souls on XGP, which is a Korean variation on the Darkest Dungeons theme, but that only made me hungrier for more Darkest Dungeons, so that's where I am now.

As usual I'm just fucking around on games that I probably won't finish, except that I think I'll finish Bloodstained.

Playing Final Fantasy XIV with the woman. It's basically what we have for bonding time these days but is frictional because she is weird. She has 2 DPS characters and I have one white mage but I'm not supposed to level past her. Don't you want your healer to be leveled? I'm not great in boss fights as it is.

Picked up Path of Exile again and for the first time since release, I'm playing a necromancer. This is MUCH easier than it used to be. The Blight fungus is a nice, quick source of loots, too.

My Switch is being held hostage until Commercialmas arrives. I think that the only 3 things I am looking forward to over the next 3 years are:
1. My Switch
2. Grecian Isles cruise
3. Boy going to college

Assuming my marriage survives, 2023 should be great. Or, you know, even if it doesn't.
