    didn't see a thread like this, so i thought i'd create it!

    what sort of video games have y'all been playing recently? what are some of your favorites?

    i loooooove hearing about people's experiences with games and discovering new ones, sounded like this would be fun ;3

    kk i'll start off:

    i've been playing Thumper and it's ridiculously fun, if difficult and an all-out assault on my senses

    seriously, it describes itself as a "rhythm hell game" and it's aptly named. definitely not for everyone, but i'd encourage people to give it a look!

    also been slowly playing through SMT IV: Apocalypse. i loves me some good god and demon bashing >:3c

    I will never pass up an opportunity to pimp Sil. good tolkein shit + really well designed gameplay + murderous permadeath is my jam.

    I've also been playing a lot of Fallen London recently, for an entirely different resource-managy, slower paced, baroque lore kinda game fix.

    Overwatch. Lots of Overwatch. It's a fun popcorn sort of game for me to calm down with. Need to get back to Dark Souls 3's dlc too. That was fun.

    Bugs life, the psx disney game using an emulator. The controls have not held up well over time and the camera is bunk but overall the game is still pretty damn fun imo. The mechanics are fun if not a bit irritating at times ( eg if you get the golden berry powerup it gives you a counter for enemies and you get an award for killing all of them in a level, however if you pick up another powerup after that before everyones dead youre fucked)

    Also been trying to do a nuzlocke run in pokemon white but i might give up for good, the first loss hit me ridiculously hard for some reason??? I am a crybaby who cant handle even pretend death of a cartoon animal

    Been considering messing around in skyrim again but itll probably end up being minecraft if anything, i like to build castles

    Meadow!

    It's made by the people who made Shelter and Shelter2, it's an MMO where you have no chat feature, just emotes and the ability for your animal avatar to bark/meow/make noise. You run around collecting flowers and finding groups to go hunting for things called obelisks. You then all gather around them and yell till they crumble!

    The more you collect essence, the more animals you unlock to play, along with skins and stuff. Owning the Shelter games and stuff also gives you things.

    The game is only 3 bucks on steam, and is really fun and relaxing.

    Been dicking around replaying monument valley a bit, sort of self assigned homework for my own game design ideas.

    I've been trying to get through the Dishonored dlcs before the sequel comes out, but it's been difficult because a) I am so bad at stealth and yet DETERMINED to do low-chaos a l w a y s and b) I keep getting distracted by Overwatch

    Stardew Valley. Also kitten game, although considering it's an idle game, it's less "actively play" and more "periodically check that tab, click things, and try to remember what the hell my general goal is".

    swirlingflight inane analysis and story spinning is my passion

    Minecraft, more Minecraft, BoardGameOnline, yet more Minecraft, Grand Old Academy, I Can't Believe It's More Minecraft, Simcity Destinations, Undertale, and you guessed it, Minecraft.

    The minecrafting has been on a semi-vanilla server, with locks and multiple sethomes. I find that shopless vanilla is a slew getting started, and sometimes not very fun.

    Team Fortress 2! Mostly Medic cause no one ever plays him and games are really unfun without at least one. Also, I don't know any of the maps and need a character who can reasonably get away with following other people around the whole match. Also played a bit of Pyro, cause they're basically negaverse Medic, so I can occasionally get kills with them. Need to get a new mouse, cause the one I got occasionally decides that I oughta be firing at the floor or rotated 180° just as I bump a Spy. It's not great.

    mostly WoW, some old Castlevania games because of Karazhan music, and poking around in the early access of a thing called CrossCode, which is an action-platformer RPG set in the world of an augmented-reality MMO. It's kind of fun with plenty of good puzzles, but a little grindy.

    • Animal Crossing: New Leaf and god damn you Nintendo for throwing out that update two weeks before Pokemon Sun/Moon drop
    • various Minecraft modpacks (building and survival in Hermitcraft Modsauce 2, culinary museum challenge in Karma, bucket challenge in Byte Size, and general derping around in Crundeecraft)
    • SOMA
    • finished a neutral Undertale run, said "I'll do a pacifist run someday," immediately reset and started the thing
    Apparently Blizz is doing a free overwatch weekend on Nov. 18-21, which may be the death of me
