Post Re: What are you playing now?
Been playing World of Warships a lot... currently there's a limited-time grind to win a free Bismarck, so I've been chasing that. It's free, so why not? Plus I apparently like grinding to a degree. Besides that, some Rimworld, some Don't Starve Together with Shiny, and a bit of Deus Ex: Human Revolution.

I think I'm getting old. I'm not really into games as much any more. Doom was a bit of a slog, and so is Deus Ex. BTW, I'm not a fan of Deus Ex's graphics engine. I set everything to insane-ultra-max and it actually ran really crappy on my machine, which is disappointing. I dialed it back to high and it's fine, but the eye candy isn't enough imo to explain the performance. *shrug*

I know how you feel man. I'm getting a bit disenchanted with games too, and I think the same goes for some others here. It's probably a mix of us getting older and games getting more boring and uniform, I guess?

I used to feel like a kid in a candy store during the sales, now I kinda go like...I got so many good games in my library I have yet to play, might as well save the money for something practical. I think the biggest amount of money I've spent on a game during this year has been a gift to a friend. Kinda says a lot really. :)

Like you, I end up gravitating towards more 'casual' (not candy crush :P) and shorter games that don't necessarily require 'completion'. They just offer the joy of playing and building something rather than having to reach a certain end goal or target. Maybe that's what makes them so attractive now, not entirely sure.

I've been playing Football Manager and then The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth for the most part these last few weeks, especially since I have not been home a lot and didn't want to invest in a longer game. We'll see what I feel like when I get back in 2 weeks and will be home for an extended period of time. I think I just need to take longer breaks from gaming, so that I actually enjoy myself when I do play a game. Too much of anything is bad. :)

Sounds like we're all getting old. FFS, I don't want to be old. :P Ah well. I still need to get Witcher 3 at some point. I suspect I'll really get into that one.

Haha, soon we'll be complaining about how everything used to be better when we were young. :P

Yeah, The Witcher 3 is pretty captivating. It's pretty amazing to witcher (?) around in the world, going at your own pace. As long as you don't waste time on some of the more console-y 'gotta catch em all' quests the level of writing and quest design is top notch. That reminds me, I never started the second expansion (Blood and Wine) because of the busy period ahead. Still have that to look forward to. :-)

Well, I played a bunch of Deus Ex when I was off of work and got into it a lot more. I'm so OCD about exploring everything I think I burn myself out, but it's ok. I can't say I'm all that invested in the story, but I completely wreck folks for the most part, which is always good fun. Some immersion issues... like when I killed one cop and the dialog afterward talked about a massacre. I freaking electrocuted the guy... could've been an accident. :roll: The really terrible motion capture still bothers me, as does the look of the protagonist. Sunglasses, spikey hair, stupid trench coat? It's like Watch dogs.
