    I have started playing a new mod for Iron Hearts IV which converts the game into Fallout New Vegas Grand strategy game and it makes me want SO much to write a new post apocalyptic world!

    once in a blue moon, Guild Wars 2. although I have so many great RPGs to finish: tyranny, pillars of eternity, divinity original sin, witcher 3.... skyrim is a never ending game so, let's disregard that one.

    I used to play Guild Wars 2; excellent MMORPG! Nowadays, I've gotten into designing my own games.

    TrippleA, but it seems the system breaks down at around turn 40. :(

    I'm currently playing the new God of War. I hate myself and selected the harder (not the hardest, just below it) level. The encounters are challenging enough (read this as I have to fight the same opponent 20 times before I beat them) that I feel a sense of accomplishment.

    I've actually beaten the main story line but, like most games, there's extra content. You can wrap up all the side quests and tackle the main prize: defeating the nine corrupted Valkyrie. I'm working on number five.

    For anyone a fan of the God of War franchise, who loves a great story, and can appreciate violence, this is your game.

    Wife and I just finished God of War. I had not seen the franchise since the original, which I found overwhelming and never tried the others. I'm glad I did this one, though. It's quite good.

    Hate the Valkyries. Buncha cheaters. 8)

    Been going a little old school lately, playing a bit of Knights of the Old Republic on the weekends. And a few of the other Bioware lineup. And Puzzle Quest.

    Same here! I recently found a copy of StarCraft '98 at a garage sale, still in-box with strategy books and everything. It remains to be seen whether it runs on my PC, but I'm pretty excited.

    Last year when I was taking classes with a different graphic design professor (who was...an experience to have a class with), we'd have StarCraft nights in her computer lab. Anyone who was still on campus after her last class would come down and we'd throw it up on the projector and play for hours. Ended up breaking the original disk because we played it so much...Good times.

    Anyone else here looking forward to Bethesda's E3 Conference?

    Yes, but with crossed fingers. Bethesda has been very gung-ho about multiplayer online games recently, and that's not my cup of tea, so I've been nervous with all the rumors swirling around that that's what Fallout 76 might be. I really hope they announce a new Elder Scrolls game, but unfortunately that seems unlikely at the moment.

    I'm also excited to learn more about Anthem, the new title in development at Bioware. Maybe they'll also give some info about the next Dragon Age installment, but because they're pushing Anthem so aggressively right now I don't think they will.

    Yeah, I don't think we're likely to see an Elder Scrolls game. Howard mentioned in an interview not too long ago that they had several other games they were working on and ES6 wasn't one of them, if I remember correctly. And I totally agree with you about multi-player. I'm not into those either. I have a feeling 76 might be that...so we'll see. I guess we'll know in a few more hours, huh? :D

    After four nights, three hours each, I finally beat the final Valkyrie Queen. That was a tough one. When I ripped off her wings, I couldn't suppress my smile. That as a tough fight.

    The challenge came mostly from my refusal to set the difficulty level to normal. I beat the entire game on the harder setting, I'd beat this Queen too!.

    For Father's Day my wife and kids are getting me the new Zelda game, Breath of the Wild. I heard some good things about it, so I'm looking forward to giving it a try.

    I can't believe Bethesda announced Elder Scrolls 6! It's finally happening! The teaser they showed didn't give away much about the setting and I'm really hoping it's Hammerfell.

    The teaser also mentioned that Elder Scrolls VI would come out for the next generation console. From what I can tell, we'll need to wait another 2 or 3 years. PS5 Isn't expected to launch until 2019 or 2020.

    But this thread is about what are we playing now. I'm now working on completing Horizon: Zero Dawn. From what I can tell, I'm about 2 or 3 hours from completing the main story line.

    I'm also trying out an older game, Beyond: Two Souls. It's the one with Ellen Paige as the protagonist. The game mechanics is unintuitive, but I like the story.
