Where ever the Emperor needs his eyes

I was talked into trying Final Fantasy XIV. My only real MMO experience previously was Star Trek Online (Romulans FTW), which I enjoyed, but mostly for the Space Ships.

So FF14 is a bit different for me, but Im enjoying it alot.

FF14 is both the first MMO I've really enjoyed since City of Heroes and probably the best Final Fantasy game since... 10? I really wish I had the time to play it properly.

Oh yeah, played it for a while and really enjoyed it. There was some grind sadly (was going for Dragoon, so folks probably know what I'm talking about), but nowhere near as bad as I remembered it from previous MMO's I played in the past.

The game is still being supported (had a new expansion released today of all days) and it has one of the best mounts ever: the FAT Chocobo. I wish I still had the screenshot of my game character looking in awe at that yellow chonk.

I liked it, not as much as my brother, who still plays it and has 4,327 hrs on record. Yikes.

On my end, spending what little free time I have still chipping away at getting Shadow of the Tomb Raider 100% completed. Almost there, wahey!

Im surprised really with how much I've been liking it, and they released a new Expansion or something. Im not even through the base story but it got me hooked enough to pick up the expansion.

I'm playing, and have been doing so since the disastrous 1.0 launch. I took a quick look at the expansion content this morning. I unlocked the new Dancer job, and did some of the new Main Story Quest. But I had to go into work, and didn't really have time to do much.

I'm looking forward to getting back online when I finish with work today.

Picked up Starbound from Steam thanks to the summer sale. Haven't really gotten too into it yet. I love Stardew Valley, and this is by the same people and seems sort of similar but yet very different.

I'm thinking about picking up A Hat In Time also. I used to love 3d platformers back in the day (played Banjo-Kazooie, Donkey Kong 64, and others), so the nostalgia value definitely gets my attention. Maybe I'll pick up Yooka-Laylee instead, as I've heard that it's decent too. Any input for either of those two games from someone who's played them would be much appreciated!

My armies (re-counted and updated on 1/27/19, including modeled wargear options):
Dark Angels: ~11200 | Space Marines (Blood Ravens and others): ~1300 | Space Wolves: ~3400
Inquisition: ~300 | Officio Assassinorum: ~500 | Imperial Knights: ~800 | Talons of the Emperor: ~500
Tau Empire: ~6200 | Chaos Space Marines (various legions): ~8100 | Death Guard: ~2800 | Chaos Daemons (all types): ~2100

I'm back to Read Dead 2 on the PS4, because my computer got the Blue Screen of Doom and won't boot up now. I know feth all about PC's so I'm going to have my friend take a look later this week to get it back into shape.

Oh yes, I'm at the stage right now where I have so much money but nothing to spend it on. And once you get the right gems for your guns of choice, no real reason to collect more of those as well.

Woefully short, the maps are massive and rewarding for those who want to 100% each mission though. Thankfully my brother and two others have also picked the game up, so sooner or later we'll be going through it as intended.

Finally decided to do the main quest lines for Fallout 4. They're not as bad as I'd feared, but still pretty bland when compared to New Vegas. At least it's better than the hot mess that was the "story" of FO3.

With that in mind, I guess I should actually play through the main quest for Skyrim too, since I've never gotten past the greybeards opening thing because I spent too much time roaming the wilds and hoarding crafting items and weapons.

I'm also working on Inqusitor Martyr, which is a great game. I seriously do not understand the hate this thing has gotten.

TBF, i consider Far Harbour a better game for story telling then what we've got with the mainline in 4.


For me overall i am still stuck with mordhau atm.

FH is one of the best expansions they've put out, it felt on par with a lot of New Vegas. However, the Mainstory for FO4 isn't as bad as I thought it was the first time I tried to play through it 4 years ago. At the time I was stuck with a PS4 and now I've got a good PC that can easily run it, so I think that is also part of the reason why I'm having more fun.

I can't do Mordhau, that community is so toxic it just turned me completely off. I was surprised Steam granted me a refund even though I was about 4 hours over the 2 hour limit.

Hahah Morhau has a kind of iffy community half the time, altough often you can ignore it.

FH definately comes close to New vegas. The main story of 4 is just, i mean it's a story allright but frankly it is not a good story for an RPG.
Altough personally i wait for Fallout Miami. (mod)

I'm enjoying playing Grim Dawn so far.

I just noticed how few people are playing xcom 2 or WotC (the xpac) on twitch. I checked all the high viewer count ones and omg they are so bad at the game. I mean sorry if i come off mean or tooting my own horn but i'm probably better than all the ones i just saw listed. I've played for almost 3,000 hours so maybe i'm better than most and it's not the newest game but i expected to at least see some really good players playing it. I kind of feel like i should stream the game just to show people how to beat a Legend/Ironman play.

Streams and youtube videos of games have a short shelf life, at least without a big dedicated fanbase of either the game or the player. And honestly its mostly the latter- like traditional film/tv, the ability of the entertainer to be entertaining and engaging matters a lot more than whatever they're actually doing. (silent, gameplay focused videos do the worst, for example)

It doesn't matter how good or bad the player is most of the time. In fact that latter is usually more entertaining to watch than someone trying to show off how 'awesome' they are to the audience. Intended or not, it usually comes off as condescending.

Finished Bloodborne after I decided to give up on the Chalice Dungeons at Defiled Watchdog of the Old Lords. Just annoying to do so I went and beat the last boss on my first try instead.


Started Sekiro, but now feeling like I might want to go play the Witcher 3 instead maybe. Sekiro is really brutal. I like the stealth gameplay a lot, swinging around and stealth killing people is great fun. But the boss fights rely heavily on parrying, and I am just not good at that. Gotten past three minibosses so far, but each one has been really tough for me and I have not fought a "real" boss yet.

@Da Boss,
If it's just a random Chalice Dungeon, you can roll up a different Chalice Dungeon and fight a different final boss. I don't recall if Watchdog was one of the "mandatory" ones or not.

Bloodborne is a great game. I still reinstall and play a little from time to time. Now you've made me want to reinstall it tonight.

As for me, still playing a ton of Total Warhammer on PC. I've started Dragon's Dogma on Switch. I'm still juggling Anthem, Assassin's Creed, RDR2, Spiderman, and Nioh on the PS4. Although I've only got one DLC left for Spiderman.

Nuremberg

It was one of the mandatory ones. It's fine, I decided my bs-o-meter could not tolerate fighting this thing on half health. Getting instakilled all the time was not really fun, and it seemed like it was going to be a really tedious fight. I had done everything else and am happy to leave that fight and walk away from the game feeling happy about it.

It is a really good game, the theme and atmosphere are amazing. I prefer the playstyle of Dark Souls I think, but the theme and atmosphere of Bloodborne are way more up my alley. Really happy I got to play it without shelling out for a PS4 and a big TV!

My secret fortress at the base of the volcano!

Still playing Gundam Battle Online 2, but the Steam Summer Sale happened, so I scooped up Hearts of Iron 4 (after seeing my roommate play it a bunch) and haven't gotten much sleep in the last 2 weeks.

Mostly, I've played as Germany because thanks to the Waking the Tiger DLC, I can stuff Hitler into a cannon and shoot him into the sun on turn 1 (I'd put him in a rocket and launch him at the sun, but I can't get rockets until 1943) and then restore democracy to Germany.

Or I can restore the monarchy, which is usually how I roll. I'm sorry, it's just Wilhem II's moustache... facial hair that magnificent cries out to rule an empire. I know, I know, the last time that moustache ran Germany, we ended up with WWI, but what are my options? Have you seen his son Wilhem III's facial hair? The man has the moustache of a peasant. There's no way he can rule an empire.

Besides, Stalin usually kicks off WWII long before I get a chance to.
