Talking point: What are you playing this weekend?

Posted by , | Views: 10,830

It's nearly the end of January already, feels like the year is going rather quickly! With all the releases we've had lately along with some excellent games last year, what are you clicking on this weekend?

I'm rather sick from a nasty bug going around my Son's school so I shall mostly be moaning, groaning and playing something like Slay the Spire since it's ridiculously good and requires very little actual effort. Bonus points to it for working very nicely on my notebook so I can do it in bed.

I might also be catching up on some more Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus, since I've been having a lot of fun with it and the turn-based nature of it means I can take my time. I'm still in a little shock at just how atmospheric and stylish it is, they did a good job.

If you're stuck and looking for something new, Steam has two interesting sales going on right now. Their Aussie Sale 2019 runs until Monday and their Global Game Jam Sale is also on until tomorrow!

There's also the GOG Weekly Sale, there's a few days left on the Humble Double Fine Presents Bundle and the Caffeine bundle both with great games.

What are you playing and what do you think about it?

Finished AER - Memories of Old. It's... nice, but not great. The flying parts are nice and relaxing. I didn't expect the slightly Zeldaesque temples. The story, though... couldn't make heads or tail or the little story fragments. Or the ending.

Now I've started Darkestville Castle. Starts like something funny and relaxing.

If I have enough time it will be State of Mind, or just some quick sessions on Hollow Knight... or maybe both if it's a real lazy Sunday.

Starcraft II! Its awesome and Gallium Nine is a must to play this game. The engine is heavily CPU bottle necked which doesn't help wine at all, Nine takes off the Dx9 -> OGL conversion off the CPU and the game performance becomes very good.

X2: The Threat. X3 is nice and all, but I love parking my ship inside of a station, it's the little thing that increases my immersion to the point where I just love flying around planning my economic empire.

The Witcher 3 (Proton) - after 73 hours of gameplay I finally reached the end of the main storyline. The hype about this game is validated...

TW:Warhammer 2 - loving this game!

Somehow I got very much into DiRT Rally. Runs very smooth, great port by Feral I hope to see Linux version of DiRT Rally 2.0 soon after it gets released, meanwhile I will play it via Proton!

kokoko3kGot a new amva monitor (benq gw2470) and i'm really happy to finally see blacks!
Gonna play everything to just see how it looks.
By now, Soma and everspace win!
Eheh, that’s my monitor too and yes, great blacks with much better contrast in dark areas than on my previous TN.
The only problem is the trails some colors leave when scrolling, but it’s not too bad.

Edit: oh and the horrible bright blue screen when the screensaver starts…
