    …still Long War 2. XCom 2 on the summer steam sale is likely the best value I’ve ever gotten for a game. Unless you count Hearthstone (because I’ve spent $0 in aggregate on that one)Report

    I finished The Witcher 3 during the week. By the time I got to the end I was ready for it to be over, but then it took me more than 100 hours to reach that point.

    Now I’m playing Pyre – and it quite different from Supergiant’s previous games.It basically a text RPG mixed with a sport game. It is fascinating though, and the art and music are up to Supergaint’s normal standard.Report

      I find myself lingering over the Game of the Year edition when I see it…

      Then I think “well, I’ve never beaten the first two…”Report

      Dude, did you do all the side quests? 100 hours? That’s like the main storyline.

      Best money i’ve ever spent on a game, in terms of play time.

      Speaking of which, I’m playing it now. Going to hit the qwent quests, which I blew off the previous time.Report

        Still haven’t finished the main quest. Right now, I’m near the end of gather allies for Kaer Morhan (sp?). Haven’t played it in a while. I love open world games, but almost always spend too much time on side quests. You’re right: it’s one of my favorite games, too.Report

        • Avatar Damon in reply to Jason says:

          I get teased by some friends about doing the side quests. Right now I’m trying to collect the cards for the qwent decks but I MUST investigate every question mark on the map…I’m level 10, the main quest is set at level 6 and I expect I’ll be at least 15 before I get back to hit.

          Honestly, nothing was more fun than sailing around the skellige islands finding all the question marks and looting…well except for eyeballing the romantic interests backsides 🙂Report

    Got the expansions for War for the Overworld so am playing those. The game remains good, they’ve polished it up pretty well but it just doesn’t have the Dungeon Keeper… whatever it is. I fear that it’s not them; it’s me.Report

    I haven’t been playing much lately, but I did run across an interesting singer on Youtube the other day.

    12 year old singer in beauty contest. She wasn’t in the contest, she was just at it. The contestants throw her some shade.

    Her name is Patricia Jane?ková (Yanechkova) and now she’s 19, and perhaps destined to become one of the immortal sopranos. Pie Jesu in Prague at age 16, Doing Strauss at age 17. There are quite a lot of others. Serious orchestras went with her when she was 13. She kept getting better. Her voice is almost as sweet as the sound of a Pratt and Whitney R-2800 radial.Report

    Still working my way through Ghost Recon: Wildlands, which has been a delight. I played it in arcade mode initially so that I could just go tear-assing around the Bolivian countryside mowing down cocaleros with impunity, but once you hit Level 30 it can go into Tier One mode, where there are forced difficulty increases as your “Tier” increases but you get increasingly large rewards and the ability to upgrade the raw power of your guns. So I’ve slowly worked my way up to Extreme difficulty, and now the game is totally nuts; it’s forced me to gradually completely rework my play style, which has been a weirdly satisfying experience.Report

    Okay. You guys got me.

    Witcher III: Game Of The Year Edition is now on sale on Steam. 50% off.

    So I got it.Report

    • Avatar Damon in reply to Jaybird says:

      Good for you.
      Now, i’d recommend you check out the various story endings and see how you want things to end…..

      And do the side quests. You should get dozens of hours out of this game if you do a lot of the side quests. And explore. Lots of interesting things off the main roads. 🙂Report

        If it’s like the Batman games at all, that won’t be a problem.Report

        • Avatar Damon in reply to Jaybird says:

          Assuming you’re referring to the endings.

          IIRC, you have three endings for Ciri, 2 good, 1 bad.
          And of course, you get to choose which Sorceress you want to end up with.

          Probably my favorite part of the game is running around Toussant. It’s just gorgeous, like Provence but with monsters 🙂 It’s nice to do after spending all that time in Skellige.Report
