I put a lot of time into Hyrule Warriors. Probably a few hundred hours since it came out and I still go back every now and again. It's the only Muso game I've ever played so I think that was a lot of it. It's a fun game to play while listening to podcasts or something.

It's my first as well. If I do get the dlc this will easily get into the hundred-hour mark for me. I don't think it's possible to clear everything much faster considering how many challenges there are and how much managing/grinding you have to do. I haven't checked how much time I've spent on the game but I'm sure it's been over 20 hours.

I really underestimated Jet Set Radio the first time I tried it. I'm getting back into it and I'm surprised how hellbent Japanese-insertsuffixhere police are to kill graffiti artists.

Yeah I just keep poking away at the game in short bursts. It had a ridiculous amount of content even before the DLCs

Grim Dawn is on sale this week on steam. I would strongly recommend it to anyone who likes Diablo II and/or Titan Quest.

Maximum comfiness.

Spent many hours when I was 7 and 8 years old putzing around under Win3.1 with a shitty midi of RHCP's "Under the Bridge" playing in the background, and now I can carry a small piece of my childhood in my pocket.

I'm 27.

It's really mind blowing how much things have changed in only twenty years. Back then, if you wanted to listen to music on your computer, you could either put the CD in your drive (if you even had a CD drive) or dial in to a BBS and find a MIDI somebody had transcribed. Of course, you could only do that if you had a sound card installed, like the Soundblaster Pro I probably had at the time (I'd fire up the bundled tech demo every so often -- keep in mind this was pretty hot shit for the mid '90s)...

MP3 had just been invented and almost nobody had computers powerful enough to decode and play the files, or hard drives big enough to store more than a single album at most -- and that's assuming people even knew what an MP3 was. Then a few short years later you had the Dot Com Bubble, Kazaa, the rise of peer-to-peer networking, 3D games becoming the new standard, MMOs, YouTube...

 

Now, people can wirelessly stream dozens of gigabytes of video data to their phones just about anywhere in the country, and they complain about low quality or buffering, and throw their phone across the room if it's too slow...

I kinda feel like people should have to sit down and use a 486 for a week before they're allowed to use smartphones, to gain an appreciation for the wonders of the modern world...

My 100th run at the Crimson Armory has yielded up another of my target weapons: the S&S Draco. This legendary weapon is very easily overlooked because Gearbox glitched it and never fixed the glitch. The Draco will never spawn with the orange glow, the Draco title, or the appropriate red text on its info card ("Dragon's Fire"). Instead it spawns as a Glorious Massacre or Machine Gun of blue, green, or purple rarity. But there are certain things to look for in order to spot one.

It: a) must be manufactured by S&S and have a color scheme of black and yellow, b) have a strong fire accessory (x2-x4), c) and have a cylinder-shaped accessory under the barrel. Plus its listed stats must fall within a certain range.

A weapon matching all of these traits appeared in a chest during my 100th run. I am now the proud owner of the rarely-found and easily-overlooked S&S Draco combat rifle.

I started playing Resident Evil 4 again for I think the 409th time?

I lost count tbh, but it's the Wii version so it's like the bestest thing ever.

Was using some Gearbox SHiFT codes to unlock some character customizations in Borderlands 2. I'm playing as Axton this time (I played as Roland in BL1). And did enough side missions to level up to 8, letting me kill Boom and Bewm without getting wrecked myself (again...).

I'm playing Sonic Adventure DX for the PC. I REALLY wanted to test the "only people who like this game are just nostalgic" theory since I had no prior experience with it. 

And it's pretty darn fun! It's a bit janky at times, but really fun. I've only played Sonic's stages so far tho. I remember Game Grumps saying the controls were shit, but I'm happy to report that those guys couldn't be more wrong, man.

also, I'm soooo glad the dialogue/cut scenes don't make me cringe or want to die. It's simple and to the point so far... yup.

I refunded RedOut and saw Gurumin was only $10. I never played it when it was fresh on the PSP and remembered how painful 3D games were on the PSP, I'm glad this got a freshened up Steam port. At the same time, it reminds me why the PSP was my 2nd favorite handheld. I loved games like this. Nice simple humble games. Nothing grandiose. Just a charming little adventure platformer. Stuff to break. Secrets to find. And surprisingly varied combat (don't fuck with this little girl, holy crap), Ranking scores. Upgrades. All I can really ask for.

This War of Mine

A grim and relatively simple survival strategy game that has an emotional impact on you. The game is anti-glorification of war as it puts you in the shoes of civilians in a war torn city with active conflict going on. You must scavenge and craft your resources and there is always a scarcity of something. You often need to make tough decisions, sacrifices and think about "us or them" 

Available for mobile too. Highly recommended

Been playing the hell out of Destiny. I wasn't expecting it to be so addictive.

People really hate that game it seems. Whenever I mention it people just express an extreme disdain for it.
I thought it was pretty cool.

Borderlands 2 still, with occasional breaks to check out the new updates in Minecraft. I've been farming some of the character skins in BL2... I convinced Saturn the Stingy to cough up after killing him about 40 times

World of Tanks Blitz. Mobile version of World of Tanks; the biggest differences being teams are 7v7 instead of 15v15, and no artillery.

Kind of a love-hate relationship. It's fun, except when matchmaking completely fucks me over.

 

Last match built my team out of fucking five Tank Destroyers and two Mediums, while the enemy team got nothing but Mediums and even one Heavy.

Not playing anything quite just yet. Waiting for a port of a game I've been waiting for a YEAR to get here. 30 minutes.

This is the first time I've ever sat on Steam hitting reload waiting for a game to finally be available to purchase on it's store page. Got my card right next to me. Have the info pre typed in a text document so I can just copy and paste it in. Freed space on my harddrive. I am not wasting any fucking time.

Just started playing STALKER: Shadows of Chernobyl. So far it's quite good, it manages to strike a nice middle-ground between the open world of Fallout and the linear path of Metro in terms of level design, and I already like a lot of the minor mechanics.

It's odd; I'm a massive fan of both Fallout and Metro, but I'm only now getting around to playing STALKER, I don't really know what kept me from it previously...

Right now, Minecraft. Mojang fixed their screw-up that caused consoles to crash when the player tried to interact with chests. So I'm checking out the new stuff.

I also beat True Vault Hunter mode in Borderlands 2. Prepping for Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode now.

Friend got me dead space for halloween and says they'll give me dead space 2 if I beat it :|

The fucking music with its random dramatic tension in empty, cleared rooms. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

Edit: Also started a Byzantium game in Eu4 and decided to use the Ottoman tactic of making all of my neighbors angry with me, but not angry enough to join a coalition against me, by invading the muslim world for a few years, then invading the catholics.

I kinda fucked up though because I ended up feeding some vassals too much, and now both the catholics and the muslims have joined the same coalition because the protestant, reformed, and hussite reformations have pushed the catholic world too far on top of me invading everywhere.

Somehow decided to return to battle isle 2, managing get somewhere in the map I was stuck on. Then the snow happened and things began turning into a capture fest and went tedious with many half dead units all over, some ran out of ammo and became useless whist others ran out of fuel and became glorified turrets. The only guide I can find is in German which isn't surprising as the game came from there.

Also has to be the only TBS game to have armoured trains and railway guns, likely because Germany had a thing for those at one point. Though there are none in the map I am on currently.

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. Playing as Wilhelm.

Also Minecraft. My co-player and I are gearing up for a Wither fight and building a pyramid for a beacon. We're determined that the pyramid will be made of emerald blocks, so we're also doing a shitton of mining, farming, and villager trading.

Warcraft III  I'm revisiting the game after a seven year break.

God, I want a Naga campaign so bad. I also miss playing footman wars on battle net. I used to be devoted solely to footman wars.

Only 00's kids remember.

Hero Wars, Dota, Footman Wars, Icegliders and Polar Escape were my childhood

I remember. The game is definitely worth to pick up

Been playing Paragon. Didn't know that game could be so god damn addicting, but I suppose MOBA's are just addictive in general.
