    I’m playing Railway Empire, a train building game. I’m enjoying the hell out of it.

    It’s reminiscent of the ancient Sid Meier’s Railway Tycoon, though it adds some very nice things like goals and custom routes, and lots more engines, and doesn’t require you to figure out how many cars to put on.Report

    I finally decided to take Call of Duty WWII for a spin, just for the campaign mode. As playable remakes of Saving Private Ryan go, I have to say, it’s a pretty slick and playable one, even if it’s not very deep.Report

    Enjoying myself with Stellaris now the expansion is out. It’s a much slower game now, so I think I need to play on smaller galaxies now, but combat is a lot more strategic now.Report

        Hyperspace is the only standard FTL now, and ships have to move through a system at STL to reach the jump point to move to the next system. This means travel times are way longer now. Combined with the fact that pirates now regularly spawn in unclaimed systems near your border (and with the new border system, more systems will be unclaimed for longer) you need multiple fleets to cover your angles of approach. There still may be circumstances where it makes sense to combine your fleets into a big task force (I did this recently to deal with a a marauder empire that united under a Great Kahn), but it’s now a situational tactic, not SOP.Report

    I had a computer version of Ogre for the Amiga way back when I was a kid. I never really got into the game (which was evidently just playing board game scenarios against an AI), but as was the custom for games in the ’80s, it came packed with cool stuff, including a “manual” full of colorful fluff about the bombed out wasteland the game took place in, and even a radiation badge.

    As for my own games, I’ve been playing Dragon Quest Builder, which is a lot like Minecraft, but has enough structure in the form of quests and a (lightweight and silly) story to keep me engaged instead of feeling overwhelmed by the unfettered freedom, leading quickly to boredom and finding something else to play.Report

    Oh my gosh, oh my gosh, oh my gosh! Steam has “Invisible Inc” on sale for 75% off (five bucks)! (For the next 36 hours only.)

    If you liked X-Com, you owe it to yourself to pick this little number up. (Get the game *AND* the expansion for six bucks!)

    It’s a stealth game rather than a kinetic one, but it has the upside of removing chance entirely. If you use a tool, it will either automatically succeed (and you’ll know beforehand) or you will automatically fail (and you’ll know beforehand).

    And it’s made by Klei, so you know that it works.

    And it’s only five bucks! Check it out.Report
