The weekend chat - what have you been playing?

By - | Views: 9,880

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 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...

While I was approaching the end of Undead Horde, I was thinking "it would be nice if this game had a "New Game Plus" mode).

Turns out, it has... So I have been playing another playthrough on Era 2, and now I am in the middle of the Era 3 (it seems there are 5 eras... I guess there is only one way to find out )

Apart from that, it seems I ruined the boot section of my laptop, trying to install EndeavourOS. I get a strange Grub command line... The good news is, when typing exit, Windows proceeds to boot normally, so at least it is still usable.

I've been playing a bit of Spiritfarer, a bit of Children of Morta, and just one more turn of Civ 6...

You *might* not already know this - but 7 Days To Die has released Alpha 19.1 Experimental and it has some good new stuff in it:

- 10 Toolbar Slots (up from 8)
- More HD Zombies
- The Dynamic Music works on Linux now
- and other stuff

I've started a fresh game on that, myself.
Got around to finishing up Life is Strange 2 and I would very highly recommend this to anyone who is into story-based games.
As you can see, I no longer try to finish up Dwarf Fortress... the dwarves... they are having a nap for the time being. :D
