Happy 7 year anniversary to this thread. Thanks for creating it HardUp4HardWare.
Playing some DayZ and Tarkov. Downloaded Destiny 2 to see how it runs on the new 3070/5600x. Hey guys, I love PC gaming.
That's right. I get that. I play one MMO too. I have mature accounts on EVE (est. 2005) and Mortal Online est. 2008 (Mortal Online 2 coming out soon!), but the games are so dense, really you can only play one at a time. I also LOVE Mechwarrior Online, but have not played since 2012.It depends how often you game.... a Single Player game typically lasts me between 40~90 hours.... and if I am LUCKLY, I get maybe 4~6 hours of gaming time in a week... lol. So games last me a long time... not to mention, I only play maybe 1 Multiplayer game, which those tend to last along time too.
If you like MMOs and want a challenge, you should try the upcoming release of Mortal Online 2. I've been playing off and on since 2008. It's hard core, unlike WWC/EQ etc. It's also direct target, not tab targeting, so you really need to practice your combat skills. Tons of very serious players. The game is almost completely guild driven, and you need a guild to really have a lot of fun, but you can also solo anytime you want. it's just more fun to play with people. There is a LOT of politics in the game, and I don't mean personal drama crap, but necessary interactions with other guilds, for instance, to prevent wars or secure trade routes. Mainly that is taken care of by guild officers, so you don't need to worry about it. However, the actions of you and other guild members directly impacts everything in the game. That makes it fun because everyone is interconnected. You can play casually if you like also. You should check it out. It's clearly an adult game. You never see kiddies running around. It's too hard for them, and it's not for the instant gratification crowd, either.I'm facing a bit of burnout. I've been a regular of World of Warcraft sine closed beta in 2004. Right now I have little motivation to play. I'll spend 45m chewing out a mythic dungeon and get nothing out of it. Raiding is stressful. Just kind of spinning my wheels.
Fired up Path of Exile again. Its ok I guess. I'm only playing it because there really isn't anything else to play.
I've got Fallout 4 and Witcher. Don't care for story lines. I'm not a fan of quests. I just want to log in and get to it. I don't want chores, dailies, or story lines. Just log in and run maps. Log in and run dungeons. That's it. That's why I stick around for Path of Exile.
Must have spent an hour cruising through the Steam list. Nothing pops out. Few have mentioned ESO. Iunno. Seems like a bit of questing and story lines. No different than Warcraft.
Keep poking around I guess.
Resubbed to WoW just to see some of the changes since quitting with BFA pretty early on -- it's kind of fun but I still haven't bought the expansion yet. I think I'd like to quest through the new material fine, but I can't imagine getting very involved with raiding this time. hmm. I did get the Solar Spirehawk mount from Rukhmar over the weekend though, hah.
Started playing through Blasphemous, and it's kind of a mixed bag right now. Beautiful game -- it's tough but not overly difficult, the atmosphere is nice and creepy, but it feels like it's trying a little too hard to capture the Dark Souls vibe with the world's lore. The way it's telling the story through the item descriptions and odd character interactions feels a bit disjointed right now. I'm not super far into it yet, but I feel like Hollow Knight did a better job of capturing the spirit of Dark Souls while being something cohesive all its own.
Looking to start an FPS soon as well as it's been a hot minute -- looking at either Doom (not Eternal, the first reboot one) or continuing the Halo series replaying Halo 2.
