    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    I just wrapped up Ori and the Will of the Wisps. Good platformer; gorgeous visuals; similar insta-death mechanics in some scripted sequences as the original which are just trial and error sections if you're not reading the route they want you to take properly (at the pace they intend for you to...

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    My toddler does the throttle when we play together - I spent an enormous amount of time getting things prepped for him to see the construction scenes for larger tasks or delaying bridge building so he could watch.

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    Ori and the Will of the Wisp only this time in earnest because I finally cleared my last owned DLC in SnowRunner (there's more I just don't have them). Monster Hunter: World coop - the game is mechanically decent and taking down the various monsters is fun enough. The cutscenes are frequent...

    Senua's Saga: Hellblade II

    Play the first on easy, the game is not interesting from a combat mechanic standpoint. I played on hard and all it did was prolong the combat which was not difficult or engaging.

    Six classic Star Trek games released on GoG

    I still have my ST Armada discs, and Elite Force but no case for that one which might have a CD key requirement. I don't think I ever played EF 2, anyone care to comment on if that was a worthwhile sequel? I see one endorsement.

    Call of Juarez Gunslinger

    It's quite a solid shooter and the arcade mode add on to chase high scores is good fun, to boot.

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    They just introduced some graphics bugs but hopefully they fix them sooner than later. They did fix some broken tasks for me in the Yukon which was a nice surprise. I had figured odds were low but my tasks that could not be completed were corrected - delivery tasks not registering trailers as...

    Review the game you finished recently.

    Correct - I am doing Yukon last after playing base game + the other Year 1 DLCs and am clocking over 400 hours. That includes a not-insignificant chunk of time put into my son's game so he can see things get built, but there's literally hundreds of hours of low stakes gameplay to be had. I...

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    Ori and the Will of the Wisps which I picked up for myself this latest sale. SnowRunner where I'm wrapping up the trials and have only 1 DLC map left to go from the year 1 pass (I don't own the year 2 pass). Hedon: Bloodrite a follow up campaign to a rip roaring retro shooter (GZDoom engine)...

    Elden Ring (From Software RPG)

    I had someone corrupt my DkS3 save while in the the Ringed City and it was annoying at first and then actually a problem later because it set a flag on a boss and glitched the game. I was able to use a third party tool to save the game and character but it was absolutely not something that...

    Elden Ring (From Software RPG)

    I'll buy it, just a question of when since I don't like pre-ordering games. I pre-ordered DkS3 and it sat on my backlog for years before I picked it up and did NG -> NG++ playthroughs back to back to back. At least, I think I stopped on ++.

    How often do you replace power supply?

    This morning when I found out it was toast in my machine. It was a Corsair that had a 6-7 year run. Slapped in the EVGA low end PSU I got with a bundle and had lying around. I'm not really comfortable with a 700W powering the 3080ti so I may be in the market for a new one.

    Doom Eternal

    If you're not finding PC gaming enjoyable and the community bothers you (admittedly, I was poking the bear) - why not make the change? Shelve the machine for a while and see if you like being away from the additional overhead that this hobby requires.
