I figured I'd make an /e/ equivalent of that great, big /beat/ thread.

Recently I have been slogging away on XCOM: Enemy Within with the Long War mod. Humanity is doomed as I'm simply incapable of holding back the torrent of battleships the aliens keep hurling at me.

It's bloody fun though.

Rise of the Tomb Raider on PS4.

Decent enough follow up to the first reboot, harder to get the camera to look at her tits than the old games.

I really really fancies playing Cities Skylines this summer, as a means of procrastinating from writing my thesis, but I'm glad I never got it during the sale. It seems everyone is praising this game, but forgetting about the piss poor value for money the company is offering, as the base game really shines with all the DLC that is at least 10 quid each.

I've been playing a massively-autistic transport game called Logistical. It's basically just an endless grind of delivering various stuff to various towns and industries, without any of the fun of designing the infrastructure like in Transport Tycoon. Having said that, it's strangely satisfying to get the Steam achievements (bloody thousands of them, one per town / industry etc)

What's the best racing game out these days lads? On PC, I don't have any consoleboxes these days.

I haven't played a good racer in yonks. I like the realistic vibe of Gran Turismo type games; but I don't want one so realistic that I have to spend days practicing my racing line just to get past one track.

Rally ones were always fun too, in fact I think the last actual racing game I played was one of the Colin McRae games that came free with a 7600GT in 2006 or so.

The Forza franchise is probably the closest thing to Gran Turismo on the PC - loads of cars, loads of tracks and an accessible learning curve from arcade to simulation.

I got the first Dragon Age game for free on XBL a while ago, and decided to give it a try today. I was expecting The Hobbit meets Mass Effect, but then in the first half an hour all the young women are abducted from the Elf ghetto I live in and my cousin is violently gang raped by human aristocrats, who I subsequently murder. That might only be as dark as every other GoT episode, but in a game that looks and sounds more like a Dream Works animation it really knocked me for six.

Also the combat mechanics are awful.

Try to remember it's more akin to Baldur's Gate and NWN than your typical hack'n'slash and you'll start enjoying it more. The biggest give away is how the PC version had a top down view which, once I started using it, the whole game made a lot more sense. Pause the battles every five seconds to micromanage, build your characters into strong heal/tank/DPS roles. Very easy to make an utterly broken character in that first one too.

I've never played either of those and I think at this stage in life it's too late for me to adjust. I don't mind RNG, but live action RNG I feel like I have no control over might be a bridge too far.

I have very fond memories of the first Dragon Age. The mechanics were (purposefully, as it was kind of a last hurrah for a certain era of Bioware RPG) dated even at time of release, though, so I can't imagine they're intuitive now.

Bought Fifa 12 for 99p from a charity shop. It's quite good, but also this is part of a long term plan to just buy, or pinch from a torrent site, old(er) games I overlooked at the time of their release. Partly that's out of disdain for the copious inclusion of microtransactions, or DLC that's confirmed from day one so I end up waiting twelve months before I know I'm playing the full game, but also because I'm a bit skint and if I never played Fifa 12 again it's only 99p and I spent that much on Poppets today.

Type:Rider. It's a relatively simple gravity platformer interspersed with little entries about the history of printing and the evolution of how text is presented. If you've ever rolled your eyes at Comic Sans or got all pedantic about how fonts aren't fonts, they're typefaces, which I have a suspicion applies to one or even both of you, then get this game when it's on sale or whatever. The platformer bits are fun and the history is fascinating. My only complaint would be that it's slightly jarring for the play part to be regularly interrupted by the text, but it's worthwhile nonetheless.

I must have sunk days into King of Dragon Pass already and I'm not even close to scratching the surface. It's an rpg/strategy game where you control a clan and handle various facets like cattle affairs, raiding neighbours, and sending people out on exploratory missions but you also get issues popping up all the time that you have to rule on. I advise you be nice to the duck people.

£1.61 for the (newer) Steam version till the 23rd and apparently they're releasing a spiritual successor in 2018.

Thanks for reminding me about this game. I'm glad to hear it's on Steam, maybe this time it'll actually work on my system.
speaking of old games on Steam, where can I find them in the store? I've scrolled to the end of a few genre lists but the selection always seems pretty modern (and poor, to be honest).

I bought The Flame in the Flood for the Switch and now understand what people mean when they say a game is comfy. Sitting in bed listening to dystopian Country & Western while I navigate the ruins of a fallen civilisation on a makeshift raft with my loyal pooch is, indeed, comfy.

Lately I've been spending a lot of time getting drunk and playing Rainbow Six 3. It's a fun combination but the beer is taking its toll on my operatives. They often get injured because of my shit drunken plans, and a few of them have died in the line of duty because I was too impatient to click the retry button. RIP Arkadi Novikov.

It's a bit depressing to play games from the 90s/early 2000s. You're reminded of how much videogames have regressed: graphics have been consistently getting better but almost everything else has gotten worse.

I bought a Switch and I'm playing Breath of the Wild. I'm about 7 hours in and I can comfortably say its going to be one of my favourite games. The Switch too is incredible, lots of cwtchy ways to play the thing, (none of which are on the adverts). A great library already. Very pleased. I never thought anything could sway me from PC gaming and my GTX1080 and your refresh rate and yada yada.

The RRoD debacle cost Microsoft a billion dollars. It wasn't the regular 1-5% failure rate that you tend to get with mass-produced electronics, the design itself was defective and most 360's from that era that ever saw real use are either dead or have been reflowed/have had the stress-inducing heatsink swapped out.

To my knowledge there's nothing akin to that with the Nintendo Switch. Or any other Nintendo product, really - for all their weird, boneheaded business decisions, they've always produced solid and reliable hardware.

From the video's description:

Had the Switch since launch. BotW is good but not amazing, would have preferred a more traditional Zelda. Odyssey is fun, but could have done with having twice as many worlds. Only took me like 10 hours to beat the main story. Mario + Rabbids is a brilliant X-COM style game, just a lovely game. Splatoon 2 is one of the more fun multiplayer shooters out there. And going to start Xenoblade Chronicles 2 this evening which looks to be lengthy and interesting. Probably the best launch year for a console, and the next few months look good too with the Bayonetta 1 and 2 remasters and Kirby and Yoshi to look forward to.

Well done Nintendo on finding success after the relative failure of the Wii U.

85 hours in I have only unlocked half the rare blades and I'm not even half way through the game. It's difficult to comprehend Xenoblade 2's scope, I've burnt out. I need a couple of days break.
