Mostly playing Diablo 3 this week, trying to get my seasonal character going. I went through the anniversary event with a mate of mine, but it turns out that you need to be playing in single player to get the rewards.

I've also been having another look at Grand Theft Auto V as I've never really got far into the game before. Finally met Trevor and yeah, he's going to be interesting...

Video Game: Space Hulk Ascension - Imperial Fists


Still chipping away at Anomaly: Warzone Earth as I warm up to the idea of a tower offense game. I still miss the defense mode.

From the small indie games, I'm becoming a little frustrated by how many of them copy games from the past. I'm not sure clones of Space Invaders or Centipede are really needed. Perhaps that's what I get from buying games in bulk. But I will find a gem if I keep looking.

I started playing this. You have to build bridges to allow cars and boats to traverse on and under. Many times you need to build draw bridges too. It's an interesting simplified engineering puzzle game, but I am enjoying it. Some of the puzzles I can't even tell what the intended solution was so I just build whatever comes to mind. I've made some ugly bridges, some awesome bridges, and some bridges that have killed a lot of people (thankfully the game doesn't track that stat).

I started this last September as the last game of my hardcore challenge. I didn't get very far and ultimately failed the challenge, But that was mostly due to getting rather distracted last year. Regrouping and refocusing in the new year I've pick this up again and have finally reached Vegas. I've swapped out a couple of NPCs from earlier in the game and have had no loss of life so far. I use the cheapest method of healing...wandering around the desert.

Finished up WD 2. It was pretty fun. Way better than the first one.
Only ran into a few bugs during the journey. Thankfully, Ubisoft doesn't force you to watch all the credits.

Tired of NioH beta. The game is okay. I wish it played fair like Dark Souls, but sometimes it doesn't. I might pick up the full game when it is dirt cheap. A bit too grindy for me.

Got the Android version when it finally came out and I've been playing most days ever since.

I know the AI isn't that great, but the AI beats me more often than not. I can win, but I need a massive handicap. To be honest, I wouldn't play anyone but a total n00b like myself face to face.

At least in this last game something fun finally happened. It was turn 4 or 5, I know it was Mid War for sure, and I for the very first time caused the AI to commit Defcon suicide-- after the AI has done it to me half a dozen time.

Just finished this one, and liked it so much I'm thinking I might try a hard-mode run this week. A little sad that the remaster doesn't have NG+, since the remaster of the original did have that mode.

If I don't get very far with that I will be playing the DLC, Minerva's Den, which is included with the remaster.

There are lots of small mechanical improvements over the original in Bioshock 2, and they end up making a real difference, for me anyway. The story isn't amazing, but it ties into the original well enough, and I'm not sure its fair to expect it to be more coherent.

Having finished my play through of Xcom: Enemy within, for some reason, I decided to start playing Hard Reset.. the Redux version. I played the original back in 2012, and had fun, and so far I am really enjoying playing it again.

I've just completed the last of the Bezoar levels... so I'll be starting on the Exile DLC very soon.

I love the cyberpunk setting, and the style of the game. I love the way weapons are handled and all the different variations you can have. I'm actually really enjoying the frenetic combat too.

Still fun.

I bought a field and drilled grass into it by the cow shed, and relocated my mowing set, windrower, and forage trailer to that area. I got a baler and made 15 bales, bought a trailer that should hold 8, but was unable to load them properly. A front-loader with a bale fork is not my friend. On the first load, I put 6 on the trailer and made it with all 6. The second load, I put 8, which is max capacity, and then stacked another on top of that, but the 9th fell off at the farm, and then 4 more fell off on route, so I had to go back and get them. It is NOT easy.

It was morning in the game so I slowed things down to real time while I finished resetting all the fields, which is 90% complete now. After that I'll probably speed up to 15x or 30x and finish dumping out my silage bin while the crops regrow. Then back to real time for the harvest. I planted canola this time, because I have a lot of straw already baled up.

So for the cows, I still need a feed mixer and I need to move my baler down there to bale up the hay from the grass. That grass is doing double duty as hay and silage at the moment. While corn might have gone better for silage, I would have had to buy a new harvester and fertilize and replant. That's a lot more equipment for a really tiny field. It's a long-term goal, but I can get started with grass and since I'm not using grass for all the corn at the biogas plant, all that equipment I bought can go to good use. I bought a tedder to turn the grass into hay (by literally turning it and letting it dry out) and I have yet to buy a single cow. Yet it was interesting and fun to get started. I did mow AROUND the field in order to get to the 10% fill needed in the silage silo to get it started fermenting. I already had a bit. So I'll have silage, I have straw, and I should be able to make some hay, and that'll get me total mixed rations for the cows which should get them started at 100% production.

Meanwhile my sheep are at 0% production but I think that might have been a bug related to time going so slowly and me just having loaded the game. At least I hope so, because they have grass to eat, and they don't need anything else.

So I had a bad experience a couple times, but I had a couple really good experiences too.

So running around, trying to make it to the camp was fun.

Then, getting to the camp was really awful because everything I could do was already done 100 times over and better, because everyone brought their characters over to the new server, so they could do all kinds of things while I could not.

Regardless, I struck out on my own, close by so we would still be playing together, and built a house of thatch, and then upgraded it to wood, which was a waste of resources but gave me something to do. Then I tamed a dino all myself with berries. Then Amy gave me some tranq arrows and we tamed a Trike together.

The level of independence I want is that I don't want anything just given to me, I want to work for it - at the same time, Amy gave me the tranq arrows to assist her in taming the Trike (Princess Sarah) and then my quest reward was to keep the Trike, which makes as much sense as any RPG quest reward as far as I can tell, so I'm cool with that.

Now that I can keep stuff in storage and respawn near it dying isn't such a bad prospect, so I'll take more risks and probably have a lot more fun.

My Morrocan game continues on, and I am the richest civ in the game I think with my trade income, but I am behind on production and the other civs continue to build wonders one turn before I get them. It's unfortunate.

I'm afraid I might end up losing this one, but so far there has been very little war in the world, which is nice. I didn't get the chance to start a religion so I've thrown all my faith into the leader's religion. I don't know why, it just seemed like the thing to do.

The important thing is, when I hit the next tech level, I can upgrade my units quickly, or buy new ones.

Started this up, having been a big fan of BG and BG2.

Didn't get that far, character creation is overwhelming and a lot of the mechanisms and rules in the game feel very foreign at the moment. I don't really have a lot of desire to sort it all out.
There was a time in my life where I would have really sunk my teeth into this - but now it just doesn't appeal. soblue

Maybe I'll have a change of mood at some point and dive in again.

Started on this for my hardcore challenge. Someone told me it was a more "realistic" military shooter compared with Call of Duty. It's set in Afghanistan during the Taliban era. I've played 2 levels so far, it's ok. Easier than I expected.

Still.
Decided to just mindlessly grind to lvl 30 (max level) before bothering with the final push. Will probably save me time in the long run.

Tale of two games. First half? 9.5 out of 10. Brilliant. Beautiful. Engaging. Clever. Second half? 4 out of 10. Grinds grindiness until it's thoroughly ground in a repeatedly repetitive manner.

So far all that have been time for have been playing with cats - and one of my other Android games (but I don't think it is in the database and not sure if it really belongs there).

I slided some cats through boxes yesterday while waiting for my pickup to the navy base, as well as a little bit today. Yesterday I could log one hour of Kitty in the Box for the year; Last week or the week before I unlocked my favourite cat, Sushi, again (since I lost all my cats, items, and sardines some time last year...!), and have been using him ever since.

‘Well, at any rate, the Dormouse said—’ the Hatter went on, looking anxiously round to see if he would deny it too: but the Dormouse denied nothing, being fast asleep. ‘After that,’ continued the Hatter, ‘I cut some more bread-and-butter—’"

"‘But what did the Dormouse say?’ one of the jury asked. ‘That I can’t remember,’ said the Hatter."

After finishing the main story in Icewind Dale, I started into the Heart of Winter expansion, and that led right into the Trials of the Luremaster expansion. So I got a taste of both expansions, and then I decided I'd had my fill of Icewind Dale for the time being.

So I shut down and took a break. Lately I've been playing the occasional game of Spectromancer, since a filler is about all I feel I have time for.

I'm up to more than 70 weapons in my arsenal. I could probably get rid of some of them.

I'm still at 18 warframes. I probably won't get rid of any of them. Valkyr Prime, Vauban Prime and Ash Prime are on my hopefully-soon-to-acquire list. With the current setup for getting the parts for the Infested frame, Nidus, I doubt I'll try for it again at all. Hopefully the system will change soon.

Video Game: Darkest Dungeon
Starting out the new year with the intention of getting to the games that have been sitting in my backlog the longest, I fire up the game that has been sitting in my backlog the shortest.

It's week 20 and I think I got decent teams (with some back-up adventurers) for all the areas, Except the Weald. Which has been hit and miss so far. Haven't taken on any of the 1st level bosses just yet. Maybe I've been overly protective of my adventurers as I've only have had 5 deaths and no team wipes. Though my abomination managed to complete a quest as the only survivor.

Playing yet more of this. I've got everyone up to max friendship except for one person who's virtually never on the island. Which means that the game is down to exploring, crafting and questing, however I want to do it. I liked building up friendships with everyone in town, but I'm kind of glad that's behind me and I can focus on clearing out shrines and stuff. Although when I go a day or two without talking to someone, they have a "I haven't seen you in forever!" type message that actually kind of makes me feel bad, like I'm not keeping up with friends. I'm on the third dungeon, now (of four), so I feel like things are picking up steam.

Also played some Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition last night. I'm in Dragon's Eye, which is my favourite section of the game. I managed to use my druid to wipe out a bunch of those bombardier beetles with a combination of entangle and spike stones, which brought back some fond memories. I didn't roll a straight thief, which is detracting from my ability to plan out combat by scouting out in advance (which was one of the things I liked about the game), so that was kind of a mistake.

And I played some Sunless Sea. I got my ship down to about 8 hull when I didn't realize I was getting schooled by some bats, so I've just been building up the money to fix that problem by going back and forth collecting port reports. Developing sustainable resources seems like one of the challenges of the game, and I suspect once I do so, repeating the same activities over and over to build things up so I can venture forth once more will be dull. Otherwise, though, this game is great.

I'm further along in this, working at joining the Railroad. I've also done quite a bit of work on my settlements, and have gotten several of them to decent points of development, though things will -really- take off once I have the second level of the "Local Leader" perk.

Ancient Domains of Mystery: I beat this for the third time ever with my randomly chosen Ratling Duelist on the new, Steam version. Sadly, a bug kept me from getting the "Beloved of Fate" achievement for doing so. Ah well, all the more reason to play again at some point!

Ascension: I continue to be a training dummy for Amy and several of my fellow geeks at the electronic implementation of this well known deck builder.

Sentinels of the Multiverse: After a couple of weeks of failure I was able to mint the second most recently weekly one shot, then lost on my first attempt to beat the very latest one, which is an absolute beast!

I'd put this on my challenge list, and today I had a frustrating day that merited playing the most fun game possible, and this one looked like pure SNES-style awesomeness.

Good news: It totally was. This is a phenomenal SNES-style game (but for PC on Steam!) that reminds me a bit of Secret of Mana. It was past 5am before I knew what happened. Most fun new game I've played in a while.

Bad news: It's still in early access and incomplete. Skills missing, story not done, etc. Apparently ETA for rest of game is September.
