What're You Playing?
« on: July 04, 2016, 07:28:10 PM »
So!  Hi there!  I'm Lindrea!  I was curious what games everyone was playing and what you liked about them.

To start off, I've been playing:

Overwatch: Super team oriented FPS game.  I love the fact that you have to use teamwork to win, though it is rage inducing at times when you get steamrolled by the enemy team.

World of Warcraft: It's a longtime favorite of mine.  I've been playing this for.. years.  It's been off and on for the past four years, but I'm back in for when the new expansion hits: Legion.

So!  What are you playing?

Europa Universalis IV. By far the best strategy video game currently on the market.

Ya know, I've watched people play that for hours and I still don't understand what's really going on most of the time.  It looks like a super complicated game and it scares me to try to get into it.

It does indeed have a bit of a learning curve, but once you get the hang of it it's not so bad. It's basically similar to Diplomacy or Risk if you've ever played those games before. Global conquest is very difficult though, so most just opt for more limited goals (I.e. Conquering a continent, bringing the most prestige, etc.)

I'll have to try it out the at some point, when I've got more time, hehe.  I've played a tiny bit of Diplomacy and love Risk, though I prefer Twilight Imperium nowadays for board games.

Don't think I've played that one before, I'll have to check Twilight Imperium out!

But yeah, Europe Universalis IV won't disappoint. And it's not as complicated as it looks either.

Oh yes!  Try out Twilight Imperium.  It's like Risk on steroids.  Politics, war, subterfuge.  Takes FOREVER to play, but sooo worth it if you can get a group together to actually finish a game, hehe.

Fallout 4 - my first time playing a game from this series (mainly because it is based in my neck of the woods..) and i have become pretty damn hooked. I love it... and can honestly say i haven't had this much fun playing a game in a looong time. Who knew I could ever get behind a first person game with guns?

World of Warcraft - Similarly have been very off and on with WoW.. the last few years, But I always go back. Love my toons too much c: and then there is the mad rush to get them all buttoned up for the new expansion.

Harvest Moon - because everyone needs that guilty pleasure game.... and I love cows.

Smite - I only play Arena mode. Never really been into the full MOBA experience

Monster Hunter 4U - Love it, and also excited for Generations.

Zero Time Dilemma - This series is just great. Puzzles and a complex ass story showcasing plenty of scientific and mathematical theories. Goodness.

Fire Emblem Fates - Got all 3 storylines. Finished about 1 and 3/4s of the whole 3 part experience. Been having a great time strategizing my way through battles with style.

Fallout 4 - Got a survival mode playthrough going. I had taken a break to wait til mods came to the ps4 so I could get a mod that re-enables fast travel specifically between settlements. Unfortunately, no one has a clue when they're getting to ps4 with all the problems goin' on.

Agreed, though I'm behind one DLC by now. Too few hours in the day to keep playing it. Stays fun, no matter how many hours you pump into it.



Planescape: Torment - I've decided to catch up on older games that I never got around to playing years ago, so I picked up this one to satisfy my craving for an RPG. It's a... unique RPG, to say the least. And I mean that in a good way. It's weird, strange, has an impressively good story, but it's also showing its age a bit. Still, I'm enjoying it and if you like unconventional RPGs, it might be worth checking out on GOG.com.
