    I just got the new Phoenix Wright game. The production values are the best yet, and the puns are atrocious, but the first case took a really long time to really get moving, so I’m a bit apprehensive at the moment….Report

    Offworld Trading Company. It’s a resource-gathering/empire-building game in the same vein as Civ. The only way to win is to make tons of money and buy out your competition. There’s no combat, but there are black market tools you can use to trip up the other guy.Report

    I’ve been playing the fun game of “WHY IS ALL MY CABINETRY BREAKING” and jury-rigging repairs with gorilla glue. And Fallout.Report

    gonna finish new deus ex at some point. it is good, not great. it has moments of great craft and care. and moments of a great lack of craft and care. kind of irritating.

    I’ve been playing a lot of RimWorld lately. I’ve played it off and on for last two years, but started messing around with mods since it’s now on Steam. It’s early access, but I’ve gotten well more than my money’s worth off the game.Report

    Master of Orion 4.
    The negative reviews are all “it’s just MOO2 with better graphics”
    and my response is “you say that like it’s a bad thing.”Report

      Do you have more information? I have Master of Orion 4 on my wishlist but… well, I didn’t want to get it if the spying didn’t work and I really, really, *REALLY* didn’t want to get it if the diplomacy didn’t work.Report

        RPS had a couple of depressing articles over the weekend:
        – They think the new MOO isn’t the “nostalgia critic” version of MOO, it’s the “TV Tropes” version of MOO… It doesn’t break any new ground, and it hasn’t learned from the two intervening decades – it even makes some of the same mistakes the original games did, when it would almost have been easier not to, especially since we’ve learned, and the state of the genre, not just the state of the art, have progressed.
        – They are afraid the new Shadow Warrior will be “Diablo as a FPS” with the procedurally generated content and multiplayer. Rather than the admittedly on-rails 2013 version where, although you were stuck playing asshole Lo Wang rather than whatever headcanon you’d prefer, you’d often react in the same way Wang does just because it’s so natural to.Report
