    My first try through the game I ended up rushing through too much, which left me in a sticky situation later on. So this time I’m taking it slower, and there’s a bunch of quests I missed last time.

    I’m really liking the strangeness of the setting – generic fantasy is nice and all, but its good to encounter something with more thought put into it.Report

    Skyrim, special edition. Right now I’m regretting choosing imperial instead of breton when I started. But I’m level 54 anyway and I don’t want to go back and redo the whole thing.Report

    I bought the Skyrim special edition. The cheat room mod is great. I wanted to replay the game, but I didn’t want to grind all my skills. That was nice.Report

    I picked up XCOM 2 for my Xbox One a few weeks ago (and yes, I already own it on Steam, but apparently I am a consumer whore) and I’m nearly at the end-game. After that, I think I’m gonna take the new Masters of Orion for a spin; has anyone else here played that? How is it? Keep in mind I’ve only played MoO 3, many years ago.Report

      MoO3 must die (and it will, all on its own, as it plays itself — not buggy, just boring). Please play MoO2 instead.
      (dunno about new one).Report

    I spent time with my family, hooked my brother up with my Steam library, and we played some games and watched Doctor Strange.

    Finally played Dixit with a full group — was very fun, enough to invest in a few expansion sets of cards. (You go through them quickly with 6 players). We also played One Night Ultimate Werewolf which was fantastic.

    Of note: My mother is as poor a liar as the 8 year old, and my brother is a relentless and quick thinker who sadly tends to include at least one false assumption underneath it all, leading to hilariously close results. (He correctly deduced who ever other player was and what they did, except for the very first one he based his logic chain on.)

    After playing it, I’d say this: Make sure there’s background noise. Music, the TV, supposedly the free app for the game does it. You need something to hide the sounds of people moving cards.Report

      For our group, it was the table moving. You’d feel the guy lean against the table and you’d know “oh, it’s moving away from Dave and Pete… Dave or Pete must be leaning in.”Report

        It’s worth having them stand up if possible. We made an “elbows off the table” rule and I (I was doing moderator only) would have them point to the cards they wanted to see or swap.

        That helped.Report

    I’m still playing Metal Gear Solid V.

    I have, since I bought the game Thursday before last, put in 81 hours of playtime. (Pretty much all of both weekends, and then a bunch during the week.)

    For the record, the game is supposedly 100-150 hours.

    I am…32% done, according to the running total.

    I suspect I’m not playing the game like everyone else is. I suspect generally people are expected to sneak in and out of places, instead of my ‘carefully tranq every single person on the way in and fulton them out’ playstyle.Report
