What have you been playing recently and what are your thoughts?

By - | Views: 38,168

It's Sunday, it's a lazy day for some and plenty of you are probably playing through your backlog of games.

I've been testing out the Linux beta of the upcoming monster capture game Monster Crown. One that was crowdfunded some time ago, and it's incredibly promising. The developer has been great to chat to and they seem very committed to polishing the Linux build. Still a long road ahead though but a rather unique take on a Pokemon-like that I can't wait to put more time into

Additionally, a fair amount of my time has been spent playing Danger Zone in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. Today I saw something quite hilarious actually; someone managed to use their Drone Pilot starting perk, to capture one of the late-game drops coming down and fly it across the map to themselves. First time I've seen someone do that, was a fun surprise. Naturally, I ran after it to attempt to take them down but they had some traps waiting for me. Those jump pads can be a real nuisance, sending me far into the air to come crashing down—dead.

Over to you: what have you been playing recently, and what do you think about it? Let your fellow GOL readers know in the comments.

Quoting: lelorrainI am also trying to learn how to use an xBox 360 controller with Euro Truck Simulator 2 on SteamPlay (Not an easy task at my age - 75!)

Some time ago, I saw a man about your age trying a VR system at an exhibition. His wife looked embarrassed by his movements to control the game with his head... but then, she tried it as well! Never stop being curious!

Aside from the ongoing F1 2017 season, I've picked up and completed Yes, Your Grace. A narrative game with a very casual management component tacked on, that would be quite unremarkable were it not for the lovely pixel aesthetics and the beautiful soundtrack. The story is standard fantasy fare, but it's redeemed by the small cast of likable family members whose well-being lies mostly in the hand of the player.

Since the setting draws from Eastern European mythology, it did have a bit of a Witcher feeling to it, with some not so subtle references on top. And as with most of today's fantasy, there were a few grimdark elements throughout the plot, but for the biggest part it was fairly lighthearted and enjoyable (or maybe I've just grown indifferent to the overabundance of cruelty and violence in the genre).

Testing some rpcs3 for fun

I've been enjoying the Witcher 3. This is my first time playing it on PC and it's great! I didn't play a whole lot when I had it on console.

I stopped playing GTA 5 online, now playing The Witcher 3 and Total War Warhammer 2, the last one playing with Skarsnik on mortal empires. Loving both games.

So is this some kind of retro computing talk about the masochistic experience of deliberately using Windows 8.*? :D

Longhorn was the codename for Vista.
You dare compare this beautiful animal to such a thing?
In case anyone is curious how this turned out she calved early Tuesday morning.

She even has a Longhorn emblazoned on her face.

Is it a GNU/calf?
