One thing i wonder is how people are able to finish Skyrim fast. I know it has about 374 quests or such.

I never got all the quests done, but I got the majority of them and all the achievements. XBL chatting with a very impatient person helps speed things up to a degree, too :P

Currently poking at Minecraft: Bedrock Edition again. Some of the controls are weird and I don't like how laggy it gets, even on an Xbox One.

I installed another mod for X3 called Improved Races. It makes it so you (and NPC ships) can claim empty sectors. Moreover, it tweaks AI race relations so that species with historical tension (Split vs Boron, Argon vs Paranid, Everyone vs Terran etc.) will fuck with each other, sending assault fleets to conquer their enemies' territories or deploying defense fleets to repel such incursions.

The Split and Boron have been fucking going at it, they've each sent half a dozen fleets at each other over just the past couple hours.

 

The Pirates are also just getting owned up and down the galaxy.

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. Getting used to the low-gravity thing is a process... It keeps messing with my jumps. Did find a nice spot with which to farm moonstones, though.

I decided to start scavenging in X3 just so I'd have something to do while remotely managing my empire. Bought a Teladi Hawk (added by mod; can carry six subcapital ships) and I stuck four corvettes and two armored transports on it. I hover around near warzones, and then when the dust settles, send the transports in to pick the bones.

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel in true vault hunter mode. My Wilhelm is about to hit lvl 44 powering through the campaign. I occasionally go back to normal mode to farm Iwajira for moonstones

I love doing Zero Dark Thirty shit in STALKER... made a new save since I dumped AO3 for STCOP and I'm poking around in that mill by the railway bridge in Cordon. Late night, pitch black. Hit nightvision and start creeping around. Peer around a corner, two bandits sitting at a campfire. Pull out suppressed M16, pop one in the head. The other tries to run and gets three in the back.

Merry Christmas, сука.

Just finished playing Terraria with a friend tonight (we don't play often, so this was nice).
She's kind of a noob, but hey, so am I, hahaha. We still have fun, though. We're enjoying the little winter gift items we've been getting in the game.

I forgot how much of a fucking acid trip Sven Coop is
 

The map I was just on had a custom weapon that shot screaming scientists that explode into Mario coins, and we were killing twenty foot tall Black Ops assassins with Gman heads

BattleChef Brigade is soooo muuuuch fuuuun. It's like Lumines and Mega Man Zero make this bizarre combination that just fits naturally together. Match-3 puzzles and 2D action combat in one game sounds so weird, but damn is it satisfying and neither takes precedence over the other.

I got back into Terraria, after not touching it since 2014.

Having played for about a week, I've got two worlds so far -- one 'normal' (hard mode unlocked) and one 'expert mode'.

The normal world house looks like shit but I'm quite pleased with the one I built on the expert world:

I call it "The Ebon Fortress" -- after Quake 1's E2M4 of the same name (which had similar aesthetics).

I discovered Twilight Dye in Terraria, which basically makes your character look like a hole in reality leading to a cosmic void... MFW:

Let me guess... PC or PS4

I'm still impatiently waiting for Terraria 1.3 on Xbox.

Currently farming wither skulls, ghast tears, and mending books in Minecraft: Xbox One edition because if I'm going to have to sync the same world over and over to the Glitchy Together Edition, I want all my damn gear already available.

1.3 was supposed to be out on console by now... It was supposed to be released last July but they kept pushing it back. PS4 got it in early December but we Xbox players are still waiting and a lot of us are really sour about it.

I'm currently farming Minecraft: Xbox One Edition. Already got 3 wither skulls, 14 ghast tears (4 made into ender crystals to respawn the dragon), and a mending book on my Sharp 5 Looting 3 sword.

Had my first Solar Eclipse in Terraria, on my main world. My defenses seem a little overpowered...

105600_20180108061408_1.thumb.jpg.2e7cf24740e888da02178f7c966d81a0.jpg

The ground level doors are actuated blocks with an actuated block drawbridge (updated since this shot was taken to be triggered automatically by day/night sensors, with a manual override switch) over a single lava block (spread out across the bottom of a trench too deep to jump out of) so that it kills things without destroying loot. Under the lava are conveyor belts that push loot towards the castle, where it can be grabbed through the wall, and underneath the conveyors are geysers wired up to a timer and a single master switch, to roast flying enemies (though I've only found three so far, so the western killbox is sub-optimal).

This setup, combined with my Pirate Staff and a Bewitching Table, netted me over 50 gold just in coin drops -- with zero risk to myself.

I'm going to be eagerly awaiting blood moons in Terraria once 1.3 finally arrives... One of the new enemies drops the money trough which summons a flying piggy bank without the need for a platform to place one on. More portable storage besides the safe.

I was grinding presents in Terraria before the Christmas event ended and got two spectral elemental banners... They're going to be legacy items since spectral elementals are console exclusive and 1.3 will be removing them.

Still farming in Minecraft currently. Up to 4 wither skulls, 38 ghast tears (shooting at them with a bow and then immediately switching to a Looting weapon gets the Looting effect, so extra tears), and mending on my sword and my elytra.

I tore Plantera a new asshole -- much more easily than I expected -- and then went through the entire Lihzahrd temple and stole every single trap block and integrated them into my home.

 

My home is now one giant fucking war crime.

You could also use them to build an arena for farming the Pumpkin Moon and later the Frost Moon. Both drop some awesome weapons, like the Horseman's Blade and the raven staff from the Pumpkin Moon and the chain gun, Razorpine, and the North Pole from the Frost Moon. And some cool new trophies for your walls (Mourning Wood and Pumpking, and Santa-NK1, Everscream, and Snow Queen). My ranged character uses the chain gun with a modifier for crit strike damage and it wrecks Duke Fishbreath

WHAT IS THIS I DON'T EVEN

Final wave of the Pumpkin Moon. It goes by points at that point and all that spawns is boss tier mobs... Pumpking, Mourning Wood, and the Headless Horseman. That's why you want an automated arena with as many traps as you can pack into it. If you managed to get a Horseman's Blade to drop from that chaos, reforge it to have a Legendary modifier and build an AFK room with slime, jellyfish, bat, and crab spawn statues in it, then weigh down your attack key and let it go. The sword summons pumpkins that home in on and attack enemies for you, the hits from the things spawning from the statues gives you that constant few seconds of invincibility, and the traps/lava layer take care of the Mourning Woods and Headless Horsemen. Your AFK room should also have honey in it to give you constant health regen. Once you reach the final wave, it doesn't end until the sun rises.

Last time I farmed the Pumpkin Moon, myself and two other people in a special arena, I came out of it with 17 Mourning Wood trophies and 19 Pumpking trophies. We had two dozen Pumpkings on the screen at the same time at one point. If you have other people farming with you, you all want to have Paladin's Shields because it splits the damage between everybody. Therefore no one takes an ass-ton of damage at once. You also want to have every buff potion you can get (regen, ironskin, rage, etc). And turrets, like the Staff of the Frost Hydra, and minions. The sharknado from Duke Fishface, the deadly sphere staff from the solar eclipse (or was it the Blood Moon?) or the stardust dragon if you have it. You want to dish out as much DPS as quickly as possible while taking as little damage as you can. Get all the banners from everything that drops them to help with the dishing out of damage.

If you go ranged, use the flying saucer mount since it can outrun the pumpkings. Then shoot the shit out of them with chlorophyte (homing) bullets and a rapid-fire gun. The chain gun or the SDMG if you've beaten the Moon Lord and gotten him to drop it.

Be warned: the Frost Moon is worse. You really want an arena for that one. Trust me on that.

meanwhile I just sat on the floor with a Godly Solar Eruption swinging straight up and I killed shit so fast that the hearts they dropped kept me alive

I don't even remember how much shit I got out of it because I just vendor all of it except for a single item of each. I did get nearly every single possible drop on the first time through though. I usually end up with like 5 plat each run.

And yes I know how much of a bitch the Frost Moon is because I tried that before the Pumpkin Moon. I don't usually die during the Frost Moon, I just can't kill shit quickly enough. Fucking Ice Queen bitch wastes the most time.

Yeah, the ice queen is the worst XP She keeps darting away and hovering out of range to shoot crap at you

I don't have the Solar Eruption. 1.3 still has not hit Xbox. I have to make do with 1.2.4 weapons, armor, and tactics. We have no mounts with infinite flight and the best melee weapon I have, a godly flairon, doesn't go through blocks. The legendary scythe I got in the underworld does, but it has a more limited range

Titanfall 2

Pretty fun with the single player campaign, although the parkour puzzle shit kinda got annoying at times. Also even though the game revolves around the pilot of a mech, the first levels usually make some contrived plot point where he has to spend most of his time out of the mech for that level, which was annoying cause I just wanted to walk around blowing shit up in a mech.

Multiplayer I have only played a little bit but found it's filled with way too many 10 year olds who are loud and annoying as fuck on their mics.

 

Battlefield 1

I like the whole intro level of this where it's like "This is war, and most people didn't live very long" and then you play a bunch of characters all of whom eventually die in the battle. Played through the tank missions which was fun. May try the biplane levels next.

I am so happy this game exists, though. So much in the gaming and movie world is focused on WWII even though I thought the first world war had more interesting equipment... Biplanes and triplanes, the tanks of that war, spy balloons, zeppelins, trench warfare, railroad guns. And I think it's great that you get to play a campaign with a British tank and another campaign with a biplane. There isn't enough WWI airplane games either.

Tried some multiplayer and kept getting my ass kicked. The copy I'm playing is console, I borrowed it from a friend, so if I decide to buy it I will probably get it for PC because I have so much trouble aiming with a controller. Mouse and keyboard all the way.

While I still play FFXIV, my involvement has decreased a lot since I have work, and the fact, 4 years playing and feeling the content is stale.

 

Enjoying Monster Hunter a lot, there's much more progression in how they do gear which is what I like. I still think the controls are a bit on the convoluted side but I'm getting better at it little by little. A lot of the friends I made on FFXIV are playing Monster Hunter too and trying to make a squad so people will have more fun doing other things besides FF.

Still Terraria. Though the Minecraft Bedrock Edition is finally getting the beta version of the Update Aquatic, and there's an update to Slime Rancher coming that adds a new area and a new slime.

Dead Island: Definitive Edition for a change of pace. My co-player is lvl 40 while I'm only lvl 8, though, and I do not like how the zombies are scaling to them instead of to me. running into a lvl 16 thug zombie is So Not Good.

Still enjoying Monster Hunter World. I really enjoy how it feels like a living world. I tried Monster Hunter World 3 on my 3Ds and I can see how much more streamlined things are, and well...comfortable on 3Ds it's a painful experience, even if I went and got the extension for the other analog stick, it just doesn't feel comfortable to play.

I'm hoping to be able to get Monster Hunter: World next month... Two of my friends have it and I want to join in.

Still playing Dead Island co-op, though going back to Terraria or doing Crawmerax kills/armory runs in Borderlands on occasion.
