    After a rather long layoff, I have returned to colluding with the Russians and playing World of Warships, which I enjoy both as a game and also scratching my inner history nerd with some marginally-realistic WW2-era naval warfare.

    Your point is well made on expansions. Having in the past played quite a bit of the Total War series, by the time they get to the final “expansions” you are practically playing a different game all together. Of course you can by the inevitable “collection” once all have been packaged as a “set”, but who has the money for such things…Report

      The best expansions, to my mind, are the single ones. If there’s a baker’s dozen of expansions, it feels like a rip-off. If there’s just one, it feels like the band came out for an encore.

      Diablo II: Lord of Destruction. Icewind Dale II: Heart of Winter.

      StarCraft: Brood War.

      Those all left me feeling like, holy cow, I can’t believe that they gave me *THIS* many hours in this little dinky box.Report

        Since you mention it some point we could have a game discussion on boxes since those have gone away for all practical purposes. Everything is downloaded now. I remember Diablo having that funky trapezoid box and graphics, for example Report

    I actually have been playing War of the Chosen on and off for the past few weeks and it’s a ton of fun, although I haven’t played it lately because I got stuck on a thing 95% of the way into an incredibly tough and brutal fight where it keeps crashing now matter which save I reload the battle from. Eventually, though, I’ll just redo the damn thing and get on with it.Report

    Playing Pillars of Eternity 2… never having played PoE 1.

    Usually these types of games bore me after the initial experience… the realtime walk-a-thon’s to find stuff to do plus the endless c-grade story/conversations plus uneven characters and skills that don’t seem to do what they say that do, eventually kinda remind me that I’m playing the wrong game.

    PoE2 I’m happy to say has kept my attention for 2 weekends… I suspect it is the pirate ship… and so far I haven’t even built my pirate ship into anything other than a watery quest taxi.Report

    Picked up Divinity: Original Sin, which is one of the games I’d been putting off until I had a personal PC [1]. So far I haven’t really been able to give it the attention it deserves, but I think I will really end up liking it. It’s a nice change of pace from the last couple CRPGs I played in tone, because it’s very tongue and cheek. I knew I’d made a good choice when someone trying to get me to join their adventurers’ guild said it had been voted the best adventurers’ guild by Sidequest Monthly for three years running.

    [1] Pleonasm intentional: I had only a work laptop and an iPad for a couple years.Report
