What have you been playing recently and what do you think of it?

Posted by , | Views: 15,668

It's question time once again, time to tell the world what you've been playing and let us know if it's worth getting.

I've actually been really enjoying Sid Meier's Civilization VI with the new expansion, it's far more addictive than I originally thought. While I previously got bored with it after a few rounds, that's no longer the case.

The disasters system with climate change adds so much to the game to seriously make it that much more interesting. Soon my English army shall take over what's left of the world…

In regards to the performance of the port (which isn't great in the later game), Aspyr Media did say this on Reddit:

The answer is actually not technical, but simply bandwidth. Frankly, it was a valentines miracle to get Linux out along-side Windows in a playable state that we were happy with AND cross platform. There will be time for optimizations once the dust settles, and we will continue to optimize for as long as we work on the product. For Civ V, that was years.

As for other games, I still can't pull myself away from Rocket League. Now that I have a few hundred hours in it, the amount of tricks I can pull off is increasing all the time, once you get to grips with some aerial maneuvers the game certainly opens up a bit.

Another shout out to Streets of Rogue, still one of my absolute favourite indie games. The amount of time I'be put into this is nuts. Probably one of the funniest games I've ever played with friends. Absolutely check it out if you haven't and do have a look at our video of it!

Crashlands
Only been able to play 4 out of the last 7 days, but have managed to get in over 32 hours of game time into Crashlands. Great story and fantastic crafting system. For me, it is like Baby Bear's bed in the fairy tale "Goldilocks and the Three Bears"... It is not too hard and not too soft (easy). The story behind the creation (creators) of the game is also a feel good story.

Slay The Spire
Before getting into Crashlands, I was playing the just out of Early Access game, Slay The Spire. Mega Crit has done a great job of combining a fantastic deck-building game with a roguelike adventure. However, after getting defeated by the bosses at the end of Act II eight consecutive times, I got somewhat discouraged. I am sure I will get back to it eventually. The replayability of this game is excellent.

Guild Wars 2 (mostly doing more storyline stuff for new characters). havent brought myself to play anything else, largely cause ihad been *SO* stuck on destiny 2, and i'm burnt out from other games.

Really need to test that tutorial on getting Elite: Dangerous to work in wine again.

Just finished my first run though Tyranny, which was a lot of fun. Going to play again and make some different choices and see how things look. Always doing a bit of Slime Rancher for relaxation. And the better half and I have been doing a co-op Stardew Valley game (having given up on Baldur's Gate).

I have started playing The Walking Dead: Road to Survival again. It is an Android-App, that I am running with Genymotion and a few adjustments. Great game, high potential for addiction. Cool that Android-Emulation on Linux is possible, too.

So, you are running an android app through Genymotion, a windows app that you are running on WINE?!?

Genymotion is using virtualbox and runs on Windows, Linux, mac. As long as you are not using it for anything work related you can use it with a restrictive personal license without paying. Not every game/app works too well though, and you get sample ads rather than real ones.

niarbehtI've been playing too much Kenshi recently. It's one of those games that could be massively better with a few features added, but that's life.

How do you play Kenshi? I thought it didn't run via Wine/Proton.

I've been playing Stellaris, it's an amazing game.

Also Allspace, Angels Fall First (via proton), Hyperdrive and Star Wars: X-wing (via proton).

I got X4 last Xmas, and can't wait for it to reach Linux.

doomiebaby
Elvanex8 years after I initially purchased it, I'm still playing the hell out of Mount and Blade: Warband. I finally hit the 1,000 hour mark last week as well, and that's not even counting the 200 or so hours I played before I got it on Steam. lol.

is sooo worthy though! if only i could still singleplayer..

i am rediscovering Ballistic Overkills. why i ever even stopped playing... so good
Why can't you play single player? Just not enough time?
Ballistic Overkill is freaking awesome as well though! =D It's actually my second most played game on Steam at 674 hours, despite only having owned it for a year or 2. lol. I've kinda burnt myself out of it for the moment though.
