The weekend chat - what have you been playing?

By - | Views: 9,632

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.

Yakuza 0. I love the mix of serious storytelling with weird/wacky secondary missions. Planning in buying the remakes of the first two

I started playing Firewatch and finished a day or two ago. Really enjoyed it and a nice break from Dota 2.

What do you think? Early reviews haven't been particularly kind...

Sorry for late answer, the game runs pretty well and the carrer mode is also fun. The only down side is, that if you dont like the carrer, you wont have cars to drive, cause you need to unlock them with points.

Another downside is that the KI in "Own Event" mode is so dumb, the just drive in a line through all the Nordschleife... no exceptions. But I run the release version and have no updates installed. Maybe the fixed it.

Would give it an good 75 score

Bard's Tale 3. You do need to run

protontricks 1086940 dotnet48

to get it to run, but It. Is. Gorgeous.

From Larian, it's the new Divinity Engine using 5e D&D rules (EVERYTHING is a die roll), and taking place on the Sword Coast.

It's $59.95 in Early Access, which is the first act of the game. Saves in this version are unlikely to work with the full version of the game, and character creation, while extensive, is still limited.

But is it good? Oh my, yes.
