The weekend chat - what have you been playing?

By - | Views: 18,654

The ending of another week is just about here, ready to begin anew. Before Monday comes knocking, it's time for the usual GOL community chat post.

For us over here at GOL, there's been plenty of Left 4 Dead 2 while we wait for the upcoming community expansion with The Last Stand. Our streamer Sin has been doing a bunch live on our Twitch Channel and it's been absolutely hilarious. Left 4 Dead 2 released around 11 years ago and it holds up incredibly well. Still hugely popular overall too, with it regularly pulling in close to around 20K players each day.

Personally, I've been torn between a few titles lately. Colmen's Quest turned out to be a pretty great turn-based RPG that sucked me in but looking after the bees in APICO has been absolute joy that I'm seriously excited to see what the developers do with further development to APICO. I've also attempted to learn some game development with GDevelop, which is a surprisingly versatile tool. You can really get going quickly with 2D games on it. I'm also personally very much looking forward to seeing Songs of Syx release in just over a week on September 21, bringing in another interesting city-builder with some grand strategy elements.

Over to you in the comments: what have you been playing? Is it good, is it terrible? Unload your thoughts.

I've finished A plague tale, technically & artistically it's astonishing.Loved it from start to finish.

Tried Wonder Boy, the controls killed my fun and patience, one hour and it was uninstalled. Too bad, art is nice.

Finally, I've settled with Katamari Damacy rerolled, it's weird but it's fun and the soundtrack is unique.

Next, Dishonored 2 since I loved the first one.

Some Xonotic and CTF Minetest. I need to scratch that flag capture itch.

Remember Me
an excellent concept set in a beautiful world built in an engine that only just manages to keep up. A horrible camera and trying-way-too-hard combat system *almost* get in the way of the story, which is superb. Very worth your time if you can find it on sale
Tried Mirror's Edge and repeatedly failed the tutorial (which did not surprise me at all. I'm horrible at platformers and not great at 1st person, and Edge is literally 100% fist person platforming)
Caught RUINER on Humble, which is a decent enough game with one of the best soundtracks ever. I've been listening to the artist -Sidewalks and Skeletons - almost non-stop for days.
Next up is Arkham City and Quantum Break

I also just bought A Plague Tale based on member recommendation

Ooooh, I have been very tempted by that one. It looks amazing and I'm a total sucker for Bill Blake.
Ok, damnit. Sold.

Apart from L4D2 with Sin, it's still been a lot of Factorio. Megabase still not done, but it is growing! And the biter attacks are relentless.

Crusader Kings III. Managed to unite Norway to one kingdom with the first ruler, then his son ruled it from the shadows, and married away an unimportant daughter to the indian Maharaja. Unfortunately, all my kids died, and my only living heir was the indian son of that unimportant daughter, resulting in the entire kingdom of Norway becoming part of India...

And of course, became the most revived player in Left 4 Dead 2

Project Cars 3, works great with enough wine ;)

Desperados 3 !! awesome game, and runs pretty good considering that normally freshly released games are packed with bugs, I would say this one has very few of them. I highly recommend it.

I've been playing a lot of F1-2018, lately. I was a big fan of the Grand Prix series games in the early 2000's and just rediscovered the pleasure of playing F1 games, when I got it for free, couple of weeks ago.

Also, on last week "What have you been playing" thread, there was a discussion about Deus Ex games, and it made me want to play Deus Ex: Human Revolution which I did.. And I will probably start a new run of DE:MD too...
