What have you been playing recently and how is it?

It has been a little while since I asked, so let's see what you're up to. What have you been playing recently and how is it?

I tried a good bit of Starbound when it released and wow it has changed a lot. It's really quite impressive what they have built. The exploration, the awesome loot and it's just a pleasing experience.

The other main one is Stardew Valley, it utterly demolishes time in the blink of an eye and my farm is slowly coming along!

I also thoroughly enjoyed Near Death which I did on the last livestream. My failure at surviving in the cold was pretty obvious and I haven't managed to find the elusive penguin yet!

Personally, I just want to find the time to finish up Life is Strange, I still haven't managed to get some proper time to sit down and finish the last bit on it. Excited to see how it ends!

With so many games to choose from now, it does get almost frustrating at times choosing between them to play in my limited leisure time. Do you find that now too?

I've been playing the Metroid II remake mostly.
Also play Awesomenauts, Speedrunners, and Battleblock Theater with my daughter.

Planning to get my hands on Tabletop Simulator and some of the DLC. Looks like a good time!

Hmm, I've mostly been playing Saints Row 3 & American/Euro Truck Simulator.

But I make mods for the truck simulators so I have to play them in order to test the mods That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!

I'm still slowly working my way through Undertale - excellent so far.

Bioshock Infinite, thanks to the fact that I finally have a graphics card that can run it.

I'm playing "The Fall of the Dungeons Guardians" (the game on Steam) a dungeon crawler that is sooo unbalanced that for the first time in my life I had to lower the difficulty level while playing. It has a fantastic developer that is responsive to comments and requests and updates the game very often.

Before that I played "Divinity: Original Sin" for 40 hours then got bored: really great combat system, not so great story. I played it under Windows because the Linux port doesn't work with Mesa + radeonsi.

Outlast and Outlast/Whistleblower. I'm usually not a big fan of horror games but I have to admit that these games were well done. They had a really good and well-paced story.

I've been heavily inmersed in "The Last Federation" and trying to learn "Dominions 4" after being burned out of Stellaris. Don't get me wrong, Stellaris is going to be great, but right now it feels lacking to my tastes.

After remembering how good the mechanics were with Arcen games I revisited "Bionic Dues", "A valley without wind" and of course keep playing "Starward Rogue", waaay better than Enter the Gungeon INMHO. Sad that Stars Beyond Reach haven't been given a release date...

Aside from that I started playing "Payday 2", so much fun, but not having friends to play with takes part of the fun out, and trying time to time to finally finish the ork grinder simulator that "Shadows of Mordor" is.

My Linux steam library is almost 1000 games now so I try to finish games before starting new ones...

I have NMS on PS4, if it came to Linux I would buy it again for sure.
