    Just finished Apotheon. The black-figure art style and attention to detail in the mythology was magnificent.

    Stardew Valley. It's a tiny pixel farming sim with touches of mysterious plot, romance, and fantasy elements. It's also like somebody designed a weapon to destroy my free time...

    LMAO Oh yes...this is totally what it's like when I'm getting clobbered somewhere and that message comes up on the Pip Boy...

    I'm re-playing Ori and the Blind Forest. It's very very pretty.

    Recently, I started playing Crusader Kings 2, seeing how popular it seemed to be here on MS. I haven't gotten all the dynamics down yet, but I have been having fun with it.

    Witcher 3 :) I wish I could live in this game. I pretty much do, I'll never finish it.

    Star Fox Adventures!
    I know most Star Fox fans hate it because it's not really a Star Fox game, and I know it's pretty much a Zelda rip off...But hey, I've never played Star Fox and I love Zelda, so it's all good to me :D
    I remember playing it a bit as a kid but I never finished it. I can't remember why I stopped playing, but I'm back on it now and enjoying it greatly. Except for the shop keeper. I hate his voice :|

    Just started Witness on PS4. If you played the old Myst games it's very much in that vein, but it's all puzzle based. It doesn't tell you ANYTHING, but it scaffolds the puzzles in a genius way to teach you how to solve them. It's sandbox style, but gently guides you because sometimes you run into puzzles you don't know how to solve, forcing you to find where those type of puzzles begin in the world to learn how to do them.

    I'm not sure this makes any sense, but if you love puzzles and Myst or Starship Titanic you'll probably love this.

    I'm playing Outland (Outland on Steam). It's pretty, and some of the game play is good, but my patience with it is wearing thin. I die too much and it's too far between the save spots, meaning I have to redo annoying parts far too often for my liking.

    Next up is Sine Mora (Sine Mora on Steam). The story seems questionable, but I figured I'd give the bullet-hell kind of shooter a try and see how it works out. So far it's not going too well, but I'll keep trying for a bit longer. It didn't help that the game saves were lost and I had to redo the first two chapters.

    I'm getting the Fallout 4 Season's Pass today. Has anyone played Far Harbor yet? It looks freaking dope.

    That didn't last too long, I got near the end then just quit playing. It's not a very good game, wasn't worth my time.

    Since then I played Dark Souls 3 which I loved, and then replayed Dark Souls 1 and finished it today. Brilliant games.
    I always play strength builds in Souls so I replayed as dex this time, and i don't know if dex is just way easier or if I'm just way better at the game now, but wow it was actually easy, much easier than I remembered. I only had trouble with 2 dlc bosses, the rest I beat first try no problem.

    Its a solid dlc totally worth 25$. If you have liked fallout 4 so far this DLC builds on the game in the way all DLC should. If you like Nick Valentine take him with you to get some sweet back story! Also there is so much neat little secret stuff around the island you'll have a blast treasure hunting for it all.

    I guess I should also say, beware buses. They aren't always what they seem.

    Atom says if I find everything in Far harbor I'll be free of this cursed trap I've been blindly stuck in since November 11 2015. Praise Atom!

    Right on!

    I've seriously been looking forward to getting this dlc. Been holding off this weekend because I have a lot of writing to do and I know that once that dlc downloads...it'll be Pip Boy time.

    Nick Valentine, eh? Ugh he's boring. Much rather take MacCready or Dogmeant. <3

    Valentine gets some extra dialogue and such, but he's not necessary to take along. You can switch out companions as you please (or at least, you can in what I've done so far).

    The sidequests feel like they have more gravity than most of the ones in the base game.

    Yeah you don't need nick valentine for it. I'm just saying if you like him and want some more companion dialogue and character backstory, you should take him. Besides that you don't need him. You can use any other companion and it will be all okay.

    or none at all if you like playing that way.

    I finally downloaded it last night. The first thing that happened is that I got blown up by some random robot attack. Automatron?!?!?! And I'm playing in survival mode which is a pain. I tried to bring the difficulty down and the game wouldn't let me. So yea. I'll be playing from now on in survival mode. Wow. She keeps getting sick from all the chems, too so the game has tripled in difficulty.

    Currently, my vault dweller Chloe is on her way to meet the guy from the detective quest. And so it begins. :D (but I have to get my writing done first)

    I haven't had much time at all to game the last month due to work commitments and other real life things happening, but currently playing a few games including Oblivion and Dragon's Dogma. I probably have a thousand hours into Oblivion over the years, but I've only started in DD and it is already turning out to be an amazing game, the visuals and gameplay are great.
