    I have finished my first game of Civ V , with Brave New World, and I think the new features really add a lot.Report

    The Witcher 2. On my second play through to see which of the morally ambiguous choices produces the most desirable results. The combat’s more interactive than the first, though during a couple of the boss fights I did get frustrated with the controls/camera. I am really enjoying the characters and story.Report

    Though I did not finish the Bloodmoon expansion, I realized I was done with Morrowind. It had reached the point where playing it feels like a chore, so I stopped. Since Shadowrun Returns comes out this week, I did not want to get heavily involved in anything, so I started playing Rainslick Precipice of Darkness 3, the Penny Arcade game. It is a 7 – 8 hour game. It has not really won me over, either. I am not sure if I will finish it or not. Your entire party is revived and fully healed after combat, so there is not much incentive to play smart.

    I also rolled up a Gunzerker in Borderlands 2 for solo play, and it is fun to just blast away at stuff.Report

    • Yes, Shadowrun Returns comes out *TOMORROW*.

      Perhaps even *MIDNIGHT*!!!!

      I don’t know if I’ll stay up to kick off the download or not, but, I tell you what, I’m tempted.Report

        I will start the download before I head off to work, assuming it is available. I have been counting down all week.Report

        I made it to 10:30.

        It’s just as well, it’s still not downloadable from Steam. It’s still a “pre-purchase”.

        “Game will unlock in approximately 3 hours.”

        So I’ll find an excuse to come home for lunch.Report

      • Avatar Reformed Republican in reply to Jaybird says:

        I will just have to wait. I live about 45 minutes from where I work. I guess it will download while I cook and eat dinner.

        I have not read any reviews, but there was an aggregation on Gamebanshee this morning. Most reviews were 8/10. I think the lowest I saw was 7/10. That is a good sign.

        Did you preorder, or were you a kickstarter backer?Report

      • Avatar Jaybird in reply to Jaybird says:

        I merely pre-ordered. (I don’t believe that I’ve kickstarted anything at all, yet.)Report

      • Avatar Jaybird in reply to Jaybird says:

        Did you Kickstart? (Did you get some sweeeet stuff for kickstarting?)Report

      • Avatar Reformed Republican in reply to Jaybird says:

        I kickstarted at the basic level, so I did not get anything cool on this one. I do not remember any backer only stretch goals on this one. I got in for only $15, so I saved a few bucks. I also got to vote on the city for the second campaign, which ended being Berlin.

        This was one of my first kickstarters. I have done way too many since then. Mostly board and video games, and supporting a few webcomics I have followed for a few years.Report
