    Lord of the Rings Online. I’m working through the “Ballad of Bingo Boffin,” which is excellent! It’s lighthearted and cheerful and worth waiting for each week’s episode. Last week, The Tolkien Professor made it to Minas Tirith as a chicken. I have a Loremaster following the Epic quest line in the Lonelands, and a Hunter in the Misty Mountains helping Gloín with some Orcs. I almost don’t care about the adventures; it’s enough to explore Middle Earth.Report

    Now that I’m done with my series of trials, I’ve a bit of topi me here. Resumed Rise Of The Tomb Raider, trying to clear out the Soviet Installation before moving on to the ruins of Kitezh. It’s kind of like Ridiculously Overpowered Deer Hunter right now: my chronically shortaged resource is animal skins.Report

    Been playing Pillars of Eternity again, now that the second expansion is out. It’s still great fun, though the expansion companions don’t do it for me the way the base companions do.Report

    I continue to play Fallout (I don’t get as much time as I’d like). I’m currently putting together “Morat’s Home for Wayward Companions” (I’ve ignored the Red Rocket truck stop, and I plan to park all my companions there. No beacon either. Just my companions. Which means, among other things, I need to toss in beds, water, defenses, and food…

    I did finish the Nick Valentine quest, and came out with 5 jumpsuits — all moddable, which means I can slap them on companions. Makes them easier to pick out of a crowd.

    I also snagged “Don’t Starve” and “Plague Inc: Evolved” off of steam to give them a try. Assuming I find time.Report

    I’m not as quick as @autolukos so I’m only about halfway? through XCOM2 (the doomsday clock is at 6/10, but I’m only just starting to strike back).

    Funny – one of the base upgrades gives a random perk to soldiers from a different specialty’s skill tree. Scouts have an interesting skill which gives a free move (not free action, just free move) if they get a kill with their last action (allowing them to rush in for a coup de grace then escape). My main sniper was gifted with that perk, so now every time she gets a kill, she gets a free move. For a sniper. Who’s sitting in cover. Way back off the front line. I’ve rejected it literally every time it’s come up.Report

    Still cracking away at the Shadowrun: Hong Kong expansion campaign. After I’m done with this, I have to choose between moving on to either Just Cause 3 or Fallout 4. Right now, I’m leaning toward the former, just because the DLC for the latter drop over the next few months and it seems worthwhile to wait to get all that before I start.Report

    I’m on Far Cry 4 and, while it’s “good” it wasn’t as interesting as Far Cry 3 was, which introduced the whole crafting thing. Frankly, because it’s “more of the same”. Yes, it’s cool to ride an elephant and I do like the whole buddest/zen thing going on but it’s really just FC3 re skinned with a minor story line change. Glad I didn’t pay 50 bucks for it.

    Not sure what next up is. Now that I have a pc capable of playing some recent games there’s lots to choose from.Report

    I bought the Ubisoft Humble Bundle earlier in the month and finally played through my first Assassin’s Creed game.

    Assassin’s Creed Rogue was entertaining, but I definitely had the sense I was entering the story mid-stream. I used google to fill in some gaps, but I’m guessing people who played through the whole series cared more about the recurring characters. Overall, I enjoyed it, but the collecting and conquering aspect of it seemed pointless after a while and I simply stopped and focused on the plot. Speaking of the plot, it’s one of those maddening situations where if the characters had simply had a long conversation they may have been able to avoid the entire mess to begin with. The naval battles made me nostalgic for Sid Meier’s Pirates! I only got frustrated with the controls a few times, such as trying to climb up to the flag on a ship. And for some reason the first person view gives me motion sickness when turning. The first and only time I can recall experiencing that with a game.

    I wouldn’t mind playing another in the series, but I’ll probably wait until something goes on sale.

    Next up for me will be Far Cry 3, which was also part of the bundle. I played most of the original but didn’t finish and never played Far Cry 2 at all.Report

    Uh-oh.

    So far it looks like there are no PC codes for Far Cry: Primal and implicitly no PC reviews. It's advisable to wait with purchasing it.— John Bain (@Totalbiscuit) February 22, 2016
