    I put off Factorio for years, because I knew I’d like it a lot. Had some free time in my life recently, so I went for it.

    Send help.

    Horizon: Forbidden West

    I think the combat in this series is my favorite of any action RPG. The various weapons, damage types and abilities give you a wide range of options, and the ability to knock pieces off the enemies makes your attacks feel meaningful. They’re not just a health pool to widdle down.

    The 2nd game didn’t originally pull me in, but I just witnessed a story beat 10-15h in that has me intrigued.

    Just started up ‘Oxenfree: Lost Signals’.

    Loved the first game. Let’s see if the sequel can match it. 😊

      Nice, I just played that a couple weeks ago. Had some friends over and we played it through in one sitting.

      Well, just finished it.

      And although it didn’t match the first game, it’s still a nice chill game in the same vain as the first. Same feeling and all that.

      As suspected, it’s tough to attempt a continuation of the first story. They dipped a bit much into a few themes that really didn’t seem to fit very well and there’s a distinct lack of interaction with other NPCs. There’s a few random characters you talk to over the radio, but not anything that has any impact on anything.

      So it’s a fine enough game if you just want a bit more of the Oxenfree flavor, but don’t expect too much from it.

    Picked up 30XX last night and have been going through it. Very fun so far but the end boss is just a bunch of bullllllshitta.
    SpiderHeck because I can never fully put it down.
    Finally finished the full Red Dead Redemption 2 story. (After putting 450 hours into Red Dead Online and starting the single player over a year ago lol).
    City of Heroes is always in the rotation. Can’t stop won’t stop (unless they shut it down again).

    I’ve been working on Diablo 3: Season 31 off and on for a couple months now, and I’m kind of over it. I made it all the way to the Conqueror chapter, but I keep getting repetitive and useless legendary drops, even though I’m on higher Torment levels. I’m at a plateau that I’m just not that interested in crossing. I don’t know if it’s because the class I picked or the build or what, but I think I’ll just call it here until next D3 season. It’s like a complete polar opposite of the fun I’m having with Diablo 4’s current season (which we finally got pets for!).

    I thought Kona 2: Brume would be a separate story than the first that I played a few weeks ago, but nope, it picks up exactly right where the first one left off. Story wise this game is a lot more interesting and linear than the first, even though it goes in some weird directions and still leaves unanswered questions. I did feel like I was actually learning the story as I went along, instead of going until the very end to have it all laid out for me. I did have to look at a walkthrough for one area because there was a ridiculous amount of back and forth over and over for that size of a map that I kept getting confused on where to go and what to do.

    spoilers?

    So many unanswered questions! Like does Carl have radiation poisoning now? If not, how did he avoid it? What was up with the meteor? Why did it make people react the way it did? The scientists couldn’t make the blue pieces red, but then it suddenly didn’t matter because the core was red? How did the guy turn into a wendigo? Was it because of the meteor, or was Carl just hallucinating him as such? The Cree angle kind of felt pushed aside, it almost feels like the aliens meme.

    I felt the need to have a FPS after my recent bout of non-shooter games recently, and I was in the mood for F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin. It’s been a couple years since I’ve replayed this for the thousandth time, and it’s still a great time. I absolutely love the entire F.E.A.R. series.

    I’m playing Kamaeru: A Frog Refuge and loving it. Cute frogs, beautiful art style, chill gameplay. Just a really nice way to wind down at the end of the day (and also at the end of a very intense academic year.)

    I’m also playing Ori and the Blind Forest when I have the energy. I’d never played this before, but picked it up on sale a few months back, and I’m finding it very challenging even on the easiest difficulty. Visually beautiful though.

    Survival, fountain of youth. I am mostly enjoying it. It reminds me a bit of the Long Dark, wildlife, hunting, fishing, nature and best of all no zombies.

    Still blasting through World of Warcraft Remix mode, but it’s slowly losing its grip on me. Playing my main, a druid, is still super fun, since everything just explodes in seconds, but my two alts are kind of boring in comparison. Buying all the cosmetics should take me another week, so after that I might focus more on gearing my other chars. I really hope Blizzard adds something to make gearing alts easier, since I’d really like to give other classes a shot, but I’m not interested in slogging through the slow-ish gearing process for all of them.

    I’ve also started playing Diablo 4 again, leveling a Necromancer in season 4. Currently, I’m using a minion build, but it’s pretty boring, since you don’t really do much.
