    I bought Stardew Valley last Wednesday. There’s so much more than I expected. I thought this was like a farming simulator with pixel art. Boi I was wrong.

      I think finding all the hidden depth of it is definitely the best part! I’m playing Stardew at the moment as well. This is my second long playthrough and I’m befriending villagers I neglected last time and it’s been great.

      So you are the developer of neofetch then? Just kidding of course, but the developer archived neofetch’s GitHub repository with the comment:

      picked up farming.

      If you want more of Stardew Valley look into modding, especially Stardew Valley Extended. It adds tons of content to it.

    Started Cyberpunk phantom liberty. I’ve played the game before the DLC and 2.0 and felt it was ok but nothing amazing. Now it’s just awesome, the rebalancing made my smart smg netrunner fun and the new story is way better than the base game.

    I’ve dropped fallout 4, it’s just so shallow and gutted, it makes the mass produced Ubisoft stuff deep. I don’t get why they removed all the RPG elements and dialogue to replace with meh crafting and the story is just so mediocre so that doesn’t help either

      Having the exact same experience, though I’ve only barely started the PL storyline. The rebalance and revamped perk tree has created so many cool builds and so many fun ways to play. The game is just a joy to play honestly.

    Gave up Dragons Dogma 2 at 120 hours.

    Played a shit-ton of Vampire Survivors this week and I’m thinking I may pick Jedi: Fallen Order back up. Jedi: Fallen Order was hard for me to get into because, while it has a fantastic opening act, normal difficulty was too hard and easy was way too easy, which made it tough to get into.

    I’m still working on Lies of P. I’m starting to feel like Jack Torrance in The Shining, but I am just half a chapter away from the end. Currently working on getting past the mid-chapter boss.

    Finally after many many years I have gathered my friends together and played divinity original sin 2. The first session was very fun and we all had a blast. We couldn’t complete any storylines because someone kept aggroing every npc and by the end of the night we had killed every npc in fort joy and used about 20 rez scrolls and many reloads.

    After we got out of fort joy and agreed to put our muderhobo ways behind us and keep a good standing with the traders. It lasted about 5s before someone threw a bucket at the lvl 8 skeleton trader and he killed us all. After a reload to previous save we managed to sell our loot and have 1 npc who doesn’t hate us.

    We just had our second kid so any games have to basically be on the phone right now. Luckily, someone mentioned Wildfrost in the same breath as Slay the Spire and it has been awesome to play while holding the little one.

    It’s a card/deck builder rogue like, but you’re deploying units into one of two lanes and positioning them for maximum effect. Each unit counts down until it attacks, but you have a handful of cards to directly attack as well. You run until you fight the final boss, unlock more stuff along the way, etc…it’s been a blast. The art style is cute (how big can Yuki’s snowball get? Try and find out!) and I love the soundtrack.

    On iOS at least, the game is free to download and try out before purchasing (think it was $7). If you like Slay the Spire and similar games, well worth looking into!

    Still playing Shining Force 2, almost at the end. I read somewhere that Peter is the real main character and kind of agree.

    I also started playing Sonic Adventure 2 because it looked cool and was less than $2, and omg, it might be the worst game I’ve ever played. I looked it up and it apparently was rushed, had a small team, and was made during a turbulent time at Sega. But it’s just bad. The controls are garbage, camera is even worse and sometimes does not let you move it to see where you’re going. The dialogue is thrown together poorly so the characters are often talking over each other in cutscenes. It’s a shame too because I can see the wasted potential. At least the chill Knuckles levels are still fun to play, and the music is memorable. I really hope the “Dark” path is better than the “Hero” path.

    Still on New Vegas, but going to take a bit of a break.

    Last time I played (over a decade ago, at this point), I only did the Dead Money DLC. So, over the last couple of days, I’ve been doing some of the other DLC and ignoring much of the main quest.

    Old World Blues was super fun (and reminded me of Outer Worlds a lot; I wonder if they took inspiration for OW from their earlier work here), but it kind of took a fair amount of energy out of me.

    I probably should have taken a break there, but decided to try Honest Hearts. I really didn’t enjoy it, but at least it wasn’t too long.

    After that, I realised I’m burning way out here, so I’m going to get back to the game in a few days.

      I think OWB is many people’s favourite, and Honest Hearts is certainly the weakest DLC. It does have some cool lore and story bits to it though, and the environmental storytelling with the survivalist is very neat. And I think Joshua Graham is a great character.

      I hope you come back and do Lonesome Road too, I absolutely love it and think the level design and environments are outstanding.

        Yeah, I enjoyed the whole background narrative with the Survivalist, and there’s some great loot as well, but I think maybe I was a bit burned out and having a bad day because I just couldn’t really get into it.

        Thinking back, it seems like my only real issue with it was just navigating the map. Maybe I was just tripped up by the sudden change in landscape and didn’t adjust well to it.

        Could also be that I just finished OWB and the immediate change in tone and pace gave me a bit of narrative whiplash. Lol, probably should have done some more stuff in between instead of rushing it.

        Anyway, a nice break should do me well. Then I can come back with fresher eyes and appreciate the little things without feeling too overwhelmed.

    Still playing Forbidden West. I’ll probably finish soon. I don’t have a ton of time to play but I’m about 110 hours into it.

    Replaying Fallout: New Vegas. I wanted to do a tale of two wastelands, but I couldn’t get the mods to settle out. It’s a much better game than I remember from my first play through!

    A little bit of Crash N. Sane trilogy and starting a new run of Fallout New Vegas on hard difficulty hardcore mode, alongside more slogging through Baba Is You.

    Never completed a single run on the games I’ve played in the Fallout series, yet for some reason I decided to start another playthrough and do hardcore mode for the first time because clearly I hate myself. Currently maybe 5-6 levels in and it ain’t easy compared to the really cool melee build save on my desktop.

    Been playing The Finals. It’s a competitive FPS that my friend says is similar to R6 Siege, but I’ve never played that so I can’t say if it’s really accurate. Regardless, I’ve been having fun

    I’m playing the ninja platformer N++. I’m probably not good enough to 100% it, but I’m having a blast with it.
