Minecraft - Digging out lava lakes and exploring caves.

Spider Solitaire - When it's got to be quick.

Still playing this. It's getting tougher. Three times so far, I set out to kill the Necromancer but had to retreat after losing a character or two. One time I thought camping might save us, but we got ambushed in pitch darkness, and I lost two characters and retreated. Last time--just minutes ago--I was doing pretty well, but my Vestal had a heart attack, followed by a killing blow. Couldn't proceed without a healer, so back to town we went.

In one fight I had two Crusaders at death's door but somehow saved them both and won. My whole party had been hanging on by the thinnest thread.

I've also started running into situations where stress overcomes my characters, causing them to pass or act on their own initiative. Or have heart attacks.

My best hero, Reynauld, is up to level 4. Most are at 3. But I keep having to choose short, level-1 expeditions to finance provisions for the tougher level-3 expeditions.

Still a compelling game, though. Hard to tear myself away from it.

Still playing this too. Tried a vanilla game this morning. It's a bit different without the DLC, but I don't do any better. Played on Noble level again, and I held out to the end. Even repulsed Spain in a little war. But America won the space race, and I came in third, with a score to match Ethelred the Unready.

I've never been more than an average Civ player, but I must say I've done much better at Civ I, II, III, and V than I've been doing at IV. Yet I like IV the best, without a doubt.

Played some Overwatch with Alex after a long while of not having played with him at all. He had to sort out all kinds of computer related problems and stuff, so I've missed him. Good to have him back now heart

Andrew also joined us for few games, always good to play with you too! Hope you guys had tons of fun games after I went to get some sleep.

Highlight of my games from yesterday (those of you who play the game can appreciate a Mercy killing a Widow):



Those of you who don't play the game: Widowmaker is a sniper who can one shot you, and Mercy is a healer who really doesn't deal that much damage, her pistol is more of the last resort.

You can also see me heal Andrew there, so I managed to get the both us in the clip

Edit: And just for fun, here's one of my Play of the Games as Widowmaker:

Gave up on GTA: San Andreas. The mission style doesn't hold up, as well these days.

Joined my Fallout 4 back in progress.

For the first time, I'm going to side with

The Institute.


Just made it inside.

UPDATE: Really fun fighting the new enemies and new missions. Looking forward to what other new missions come from my alliance, and where the story goes.

Playing more of the Eternity Port campaign in Transcendence. Some of the systems are very packed full of stuff, like the Sol and Centauri systems, for example. The Eternity Port campaign has a couple more currency types (Euro and Yuan) than normal, which makes it a bit trickier to buy the upgrades you want when you want them. Still really enjoying it.

Also still playing Chrono Trigger on my phone. Currently in Zeal.

Most of my videogaming time is still playing Fallout 4.. I have 130 hours in the game in my first and only play through... Been doing a lot of settlement building... I tried to build a vault... I've done a lot of side quests... I'm just really enjoying the game world at the moment.

Continuing my second play through with my brother... he is playing as Brick and I am Mordecai. (I've previously played as Roland and Lilith). We managed almost 2 hours on Sunday night and we finally moved on from Fyrestone to the Dahl Headland, having completed all possible side quests in Fyrestone!

Video Game: The Sims 3
Been having a really rough time lately so I needed something easy... back to this old favourite again.

I've pretty much finished up my Buy Nothing Project game that I was playing. Well, I want to make my Sim re-sculpt one of the sinks in a different material and take some photos in case I want to write up the challenge properly but otherwise it's done.

I've also started a new game. I spent some time trying to think of ideas that would force me to explore the World Adventures content since I haven't done much with that expansion pack yet, but in the end I decided it would be best to just start with trying to complete some of the WA specific lifetime wishes. So my new game has one Sim who wanted to be a Seasoned Traveller and one Sim who wants their own Private Museum.

More of the same from last week! I'm about halfway through Wolfenstein now. I'm enjoying the characters in the game, and the game does a pretty good job at mixing things up without feeling annoying. I've gone from defending against waves, to stealth sections, to piloting a giant armored mech.

I've made it to the next world in Kingdom Hearts,
Spoiler (click to reveal)
an arena from Hercules.
I died in my first attempt but don't think I need to grind to get past it, I just need to play a little smarter. I've finally got some skills that make combat a bit easier; in particular, a 3AP move that does damage in an area at the end of my attack string, as well as a second and third magic spell (although I have a hard time adding them into the mix effectively). This game is reminding me that I need to catch up on Disney movies! I've never seen this movie or some others that are featured in Kingdom Hearts.

More of this. I'm now 84 hours in, and I've mostly cleared each map I have access to (I think). Over the weekend I finally ran through the Oasis, which was pretty trivial at this point. I'm still missing 11 shards, apparently - thought I had them all. There's some maps where I've been less rigorous in collecting shards - they're one of the worst time wasters in a game rife with time wasting. Also, there's a miner I need to meet for a ring that I've spent half-an-hour trying to find. I've wormed my way in and out of that damned mine, and I can't find where the quest marker is trying to send me. I've still got four dragons to kill. And then I think I'm done most of the open roaming stuff. I'd figured 100 hours for this game (tops!), but I'm starting to think that was actually pretty optimistic.

I'm also playing The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt off and on. It's hard to switch between Witcher 3 and DA: Inquisition because they're similar in some respects (open world exploration, grabbing crafting materials on a map), but quite different in other respects.

And I'm about three hours into Jade Empire, which I've never played before and am enjoying a lot. I wish I'd played it when it came out - the graphics must've been pretty nice at the time. Certainly a step up from KotOR, anyways. The game switching to a top-down shooter towards the end of the first chapter was surprising. Maybe ill-advised. Both Jade Empire and the Witcher 3 (and definitely not DA:Inquisition) are games where sometimes at the end of the fight I'll look up and see I took no damage, and feel like I'm really getting the hang of it (and then, other fights I'll get hit more than I like). I'm playing this on my laptop, using a touchpad, which adds some challenge when it comes to turning fast - but otherwise isn't too bad, because all the hotkeys are nice and close by.

I'm pretty far into Day 3, and I've found out a lot of information - but it isn't enough information! I must discover more of what is going on...

I also ran into a fun fatal error that crashed the game - but as I had saved recently, it wasn't that big of a deal.

My goal for this week is to make it to Day 4.

Suspect I'm about at the end. Only one side quest to finish and what seems to be the last main quest. I can sense a boss fight on the horizon.

Also some more Far Cry 5 co-op with my daughter. Managed to unlock all the perks/abilities. Going back and playing with my kid reminds me how much fun I had on my initial play through. Narrative is pretty wonky, but the moment to moment game play is a hoot. Managed to kill my self tonight shooting an airplane out of the sky. It landed on me. I thought "I survived that! I'm hurt really bad but I'm still..."
And then the crashed plane exploded.

Gather 'round, lads and lasses - gather 'round!

The Jackdaw have set sail again and begins to become a terror in the Spanish Main! My fleet is now expanded to hold four frigates - and I hope to be able to actually get a Man 'o War but I doubt I will.
One pirate hunter ended his life on the bottom of the sea as I seized his brig - only to scrap it to maintain my frigates and expand my harbour... I am missing resources for the ship's missions - so I just collect frigates for my own prestige: Nothing below a frigate is kept!

I've also completed my first underwater mission! Exciting - almost too exciting! I was a bit difficult to swim around and also find air pockets close enough.

I spend some extra time raiding ships: I wanted to get some more gold and cloth so I could get the dark Leather Sails: Black sails and a black flag! The very crude jackdaw on the front of the Jackdaw have also been exchanged to a mermaid: I didn't really want to remove the figurehead as it fitted the ship very well, but then again it was very crude made! Among the ships I captured was a payroll frigate with 2,000 gold doubleness in the hold!
And more pillaging will be done so I can complete the upgrade of my ships armoury and and armour!

My social life seems to go really bad lately...
Blackbeard have started to go insane! And Bonnet seems to have left his tradesman's life... I hope this weirdo will do fine...
Hornigold seems to go yellow - maybe he do not believe in the Pirate Republic anymore.
And James Kidd have one strange secret!
I've met "Calico" Jack Rackham once - but I hope (and is almost sure) I will see more to him and the bonnie Anne Bonny whom he historically sailed with!

So all in all I am 30% through the story - and played for around 20 hours!

Now over 50% through the main story - and so far the clock says 37½ hours!

I won't tell too much of what happened in the main story as many are playing this game at the moment, so I don't want to spoil too much, instead I will talk about one of my personal achievements! I did what Ahab didn't: I killed the White Whale! It took quite some time - and quite a lot of tries! But I managed to hoist Moby Dick up... now three more and I will be able to get that Whaler Suit which I don't really need...
I also killed a humpback whale - and apparently all the Sea Creatures in the game have now been hunted...

Aaaaaand done! Those "58%" was apparently not the main story but story and collectibles.... I don't think I have completed 42% in around two hours when the first 58% took me over 37....

The last part of the last sequence however... Gosh I got angry in the end and was about to quit! But finally did it! And... that was apparently the end of the game! I think I will give it a few more hours of collecting stuff and hacking my colleagues... But not overly much: I still have Afro Samurai to complete as well.

I also found out that the harddisk I bought for myself Xbox 360 had Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag on it - along with some other games. Well... AC4 I don't really NEED on the Xbox now, but the other games could be interesting to check out after finishing Afro Samurai... Which have three safe games on another of my 120GB disks...

Still playing this on my Switch pretty regularly. I'm working through the adventure mode.

The Definitive Edition has the DLC characters hidden in the adventure map instead of them being unlocked by default, so I'm having to hunt for them.

Continuing Halo 3. This session started with me trying to destroy one of three different barriers. More than any other level in the game so far, I felt I was always short on ammo. Anyway, I made quick work of the first barrier, then had to head on over to the third barrier cuz the guy that was supposed to shut it down got captured. I had some difficulty in the Hornet, but eventually I was patient enough (rarity for me in Halo) to "clear the LZ", and shut the last barrier down.

After a quick jaunt through the suddenly snowy landscape in the tank, I ran into not one, but two (!) scarabs. The hornets came in good use here, as I just flew myself on top of the scarabs, ain't nobody got time to shoot their legs for ten minutes to disable them first. I followed the Arbiter into the next building, got past a couple hunters, and went to rescue that guy who didn't shut down the barrier.

Sigh. I know I said last week I don't care about the story. Which is true. But this was a bit ridiculous. One minute the Flood is suddenly on my side (and speaking English), the next minute I'm shooting them up again. Some giant tentacled thing almost killed me, then we ignored it and it ignored us as we made our way out. At least I won't have to listen to that covenant Truth guy anymore. But the bad news is I'm back on the Flood ship, looking for Cortana. Again! Didn't I do that in the first Halo, too?

Blerg. This level sucks.

22. Video Game: Endless Space 2 [Average Rating:8.12 Overall Rank:2711]
From gallery of BoardGameGeek
Back into a new game of Endless Space 2. So far I have finished 3 games - United Empire (default humans - good to learn the game on), Riftborn - completely alien from another dimension (very fun and different than UE), Vaulters - nomads who fled their homeworld (great story and fun to play - I mean super fun, as in they are kinda OP!).

Now for my 4th game I am trying the techie aliens, the Sophons. They're actually more generic and play like Psilons from MOO series. For those curious about the stories and the various factions, here is a nice compilation:

He's looking real sharp in his 1940's fedora. He's got nerves of steel, an iron will, and several other metal-themed attributes. His fur is water tight and he's always up for a fight.

He's a semi-aquatic egg-laying mammal of action. He's a furry little flat-foot who'll never flinch from a fray. He's got more than just mad skills, he's got a beaver tail and a bill.

Seth and I have started playing Age of Wushu. We don't really know why we're playing it yet, we just want to do some martial arts stuff and read badly translated quest logs and stuff. Should be a good time, although apparently at any time you can be attacked by other players, so that might not be the best thing ever. If it happens too much we'll quit. Just trying out a free game, seeing if we like it.

After completing the game, I went back to an earlier save and played through the bank heist, since I skipped that one on my playthrough. Since I was already familiar with a lot of the bank, having done a sidequest in it before, it was pretty easy going, sneaking through the building via ridiculously large and sturdy vent ducts. I discovered a lot of good loot in the corporate vaults, though I also discovered that they can be really easily accessed from the bank parking lot without having to go through the bank at all. Really fun game to explore. I'm going to play the DLC missions, next.

Last night Observer unlocked as the free game on Twitch Prime, which is the one I've been most excited about. I've wanted this game for a few months, but was waiting for it to drop in price.

I only played it for maybe 30 minutes before bed, but it's pretty cool so far. I love games and movies that are "in the future" but it's what people from the 80's think the future will be like. The monitor in the car looks like an old CRT monitor shoved into the dash. The "laptop" he uses looks massive with giant keys.

I didn't realize that Rutger Hauer played the main character, which is a great surprise.
