I'm close to getting a fifth warframe, Nyx, and have almost gotten Trinity to max rank a second time.

I picked up a lot of crazy weapons recently, like the taser-whip, a boomerang, and the sonicor sound-blaster.

I was looking for a farming game, and this seems to be a solid option. Still in the first month, so I'm just doing basic things, but it seems like it has sufficient options to remain interesting for a while, at least.

I continue to have fun terrorizing Australia with my vehicular shenanigans.
Figure I've got around 30 hours invested in this so far. Could be much more because I lose track of time while I'm playing.
Have stopped spending as much time just driving around and am now focusing a little bit more in competing in some of the challenges so I can progress the story (such as it is) a bit. Need to accumulate some money as well, looks like at some point I'm going to need to drop a couple million on a car to accomplish some speed challenges.

Enjoyable.

Finished chapter one yesterday and am finding the characters and humour quite entertaining.

Still dabbling in games from bundles but havent found anything interesting yet. I was intrigued by Digital Homicide being banned from Steam and have played a few of their video 'games' to remove any sympathy for them.

Got a trio of games in against YellowLab. Still a better game than Hearthstone -- shame the UI is infinitely worse.

With Matt, Rudy, Jan, and possibly someone else I've forgotten. A pleasant game to play for a few rounds with battle races. Lately we've been playing to 50, which is a good amount of time.

This one supports up to 8 people, so it'd be cool to get 8 VGGers at once some time.

With Matt and Rudy primarily this week, and Marius and possibly Ken briefly. Clan research is almost complete now, meaning a vast plethora of wacky weapons blueprints are available. Of course, I still need a bunch of specialized invasion resources to build them, not to mention a billion cryotic to research the last few parts, and of course credits which are acquired quickly but spent even more quickly.

Finally starting to get the hang of the Spy missions -- I still fail some of them, but some of the vaults I've figured out how to get through them, which is neat.

Thanks to Peristarkawan for this game... I got it installed tonight and finally started playing it...

And... 24 hours later, I've played it four times for a total of 8 hours... The choices definitely make a difference in the ending of the story... I've found that
Spoiler (click to reveal)
a balance between the three characters end up giving the best results overall... Still haven't gotten a positive result for the son unless I focus solely on him...

Been playing tons of Terraria since I got back from Greece. My house is ridiculously large with herb farm and glowing mushroom farm and all

I love trying all kinds of things and therefore my poor house is going to get bigger and bigger with stuff. I hope I will be able to beat the game one day too, with all the other tinkering aside.

Been also playing tons of Overwatch with Alex. I'm sooooo close to getting my second star (you get star for level 100 and then start all over from level 1), which means level 200. I'm still not very good at the game, but hey, at least I'm having fun

So my main character is lvl 109 and I've exhausted the storyline and DLC. Never used power armour and after lvl 60 played on very hard.

Time to start again, this time on survival and being a baddy.

I honestly couldn't see the point of this before but 4 hours in and it feels like a whole new game thanks to the pressures of Survival mode.

No fast travel.
You only save by sleeping.
You only have one save.
Being over encumbered hurts you.
You can carry less.
Ammunition now has a weight.
You need to drink, eat and sleep.
You do half the damage opponents do double the damage.
You can now catch diseases from enemies and drinking unclean water, including one which periodically damages you by 20%.

I got to Rising Star in Standard.

This is quite a big deal for me. I've never been ranked this highly before. There are still 3 more ranks to go before I can even begin to think about Champion. Also, it took one of the greatest runs I've ever had in the game in order to get up to Rising Star. I just couldn't lose for a while. It was exciting and fun and now my matches are going to be really hard all the time.

Great moments in me history:

14. Video Game: Super Mario Galaxy 2 [Average Rating:8.41 Overall Rank:47]
Video Game: Super Mario Galaxy 2
For Wii

Officially beat this game. The final level where you battle Bowser as the final boss was nice, if a bit predicable. As was the final boss himself.

Concerning stuff after beating this level
Spoiler (click to reveal)

The ending got the job done, if not spectacular. It's nice that Princess Peach actually thanks you in multiple ways!

The "Legendary S World" reveals it self right after you beat world 6! I was concerned I would need unlock it through some unscrupulous method like getting all of the stars on and previous to world 6, or find some well tucked away "secret passage". Nope! World S is pretty much "world 7". Between the stars I missed from the last 3 worlds, and World S/7, there's probably another 15 hours of play! This is also why I'm not counting this as beaten, as per the guidelines set forth on the "games you've beaten" GL here on VGG.com


The Wii messaging system told me I spent 21 hours and 11 minutes to get to the point of getting the ending, but as mentioned, I'm going back for the rest of the 30+ stars.

Another daily/Pinata level. I've back to getting bored with the usual in-game drivel of Quest Logs (e.g. defeat 50 Pirate Gargantuars) that just as I was about to beat today's Pinata level, I actually restarted it just to have another crack at it (costing me 1,000 coins, of which I have 350K of it anyways). 2nd time, I beat it without using any Lawnmowers.

I can't see myself touching this game until the next Pinata level which is tomorrow. Interesting how games like this artificially boost their plays with having to come up with new content like this (e.g. StarCraft 2's weekly Mutation levels via Co-op mode; Mortal Kombat X's weekly and daily challenges), but these are the times

I found myself wrapped up in this again this weekend, mainly doing more achievement hunting and completing side jobs. I'm getting close enough to going infamous again that I think I might see it through.

It's fun as always, even playing solo or with random strangers.

Finally, got a silenced pistol...sadly it's a .22. Decent accuracy, but if it's not a headshot it's no good. Hoping to get the silenced 9mm soon.

This game is a lot bigger than I suspected. Been playing probably 10+ hours and have taken down 1 lieutenant. 2 more of those to go, and then 3 underbosses, and then the main man.

That's a looong time.

One thing about this game I don't like: thumbsdown

To help gain racket money and help find collectibles, you need to tap phonelines with these fuses that are all over the place. 3 fuses tap 1 phone line. It takes about 10 tapped phones per district.

There are 10 districts...that's hunting down 300 of those dang fuses. They're easy to find. But continuously jumping out of cars and running around getting fuses gets boring quickly.

If 1 phoneline took 1 fuse, it would feel better, but 3 a piece is tiresome. After I tap the next district with the 30 fuses I already have, I am just going to give up on the fuses.

Most of the upgrades I want I got...except that 9mm silenced pistol.

Got a bit farther in Arkham City. It kind of bothers me that apparently no one is afraid of Batman. Random inmates even taunt Batman if they see him, trying to get you to come down and fight them for some reason. Also, where did the Joker get all that fair/theme park stuff? The area is labeled as the old industrial district and steel mill on the map.

Anyways, I'm really enjoying the game.

I was combing through my active-play list last night, and I wondered if I should uninstall RB to make the list more manageable. After all, I hadn't played in a long while, and I don't even have a joystick. But I decided to load up the game and look at it, at least, before saying good-bye to it.

Once I started, though, I couldn't stop. I played several missions, mainly just trying to get the keyboard/mouse controls to work well enough that I could shoot down an enemy on Novice level. In the meantime, I kept getting shot and losing oil pressure, slowing me down and forcing me to eventually land. The strange thing, to me, was that I never did get killed; I landed cleanly once and survived a crash landing another time. (Probably has something to do with the Novice setting. Back in the day, I always played on Expert.)

It's still fun enough that I decided it's a keeper. Combat sims like RB and Silent Service II are a nice change of pace from the strategy gaming I usually do. And I don't mind the dated graphics. State-of-the-art graphics would likely exceed my little computer's capacity anyhow.

Our group stopped playing OW when Pokemon Go came out and everyone but me wanted to spend every damned night out on the town Poke-hunting. I was extremely bitter about it. Luckily for me, Pokemon cooled down and Overwatch's Halloween event has everyone back in it.

This week so far I: got 3/4th of the achievements for beating horde mode (just need Hanzo's... who I've never played... wish me luck), unlocked the Zenyatta and Ana Halloween skins, and just generally had a blast. Oh, and our group ended up befriending an entire six-person team of strangers after telling them our life story over text chat for no real reason and now they're in our Discord channel swapping bad memes with us. thumbsup

I had about a good hour or so hunting around for a sacred artefact... I did get my hands on The Eye of Inos, and now on the lookout for Water Mages to repair this old swag amulet...

Took a few quests in WoW, but didn't feel like playing much. My beautiful warrior princes was thee only one getting excersised, but I am mainly trying to focus leveling up my Dranei Fire Mage (race and class picked by my lovely exgirlfriend - who she is also named after)... Maybe I get some time playing with her Thursday...?

I got this from Blammo off the Pay It Forward list for VGG... Started playing it today... So far, I'm liking the game, but taking it slowly... I think I put in about 2 hours today...

One Shot Target for iPod Touch 5

IIRC, this was free so I snagged it up? Either way, this counts as my 'backlog', so we're continuing it again from when we started long ago (and been on and off since then). Levels go very quickly, which is ideal for casual play (perhaps even quicker than say.. Angry Birds).

It's pretty much "abstract mini-golf" with only one stroke. Some levels you finish within seconds. Others, you need to keep repeating them, like throwing darts to try to hit your target. Then you have a level every now and then you need to think a bit through.

Currently on level 52 out of... 80? 100-something?
