Been playing Bloons TD6 a lot recently, a nice modern blast from the past. Reminds me of when I used to play 3+4 in school.

A lot of Nintendo eShop accts are getting breached recently, especially if you have a Paypal acct linked.  Two factor auth. is recommended.

Very cool barcade, lots of theme nights, 80s / horror stuff all the time, cosplay, pinball tournaments, they even have the physical Pong machine, which is great.

Finished RDR2 a while ago. Damn what a good game. Up there with Witcher 3.

Playing uncharted 4 at the moment. Also really nice. Couldn't really get into the 1,2 and 3 though. Too old and too many puzzles. Like Skyrim has too many boring dungeons.

It's like around 2014 game developers really found out how to balance everything out just right.

Is there much of an Animal Crossing player base on here?  I know joyrex and a few others play it, and it's setting sales records.

I’m playing it. I’m annoyed though, cause I set up my kid as the first player/settler, which I guess means she gets all the main challenges from Tom Nook. Wish Nintendo would fix that because I’m locked out from really advancing the game - only she can.

Aside from that, it’s been a whole lot of fun!

Yeah Amazon got review bombed with 1 stars bc of only one island per game.

Me.  Mostly for 30-45 minutes a day, but it’s chill.  No pressure either.

paradox games is giving away the parklife DLC for their game Cities:Skylines until the 26th.  Only available through PC version/steam.  That game can suck hours of life from you with little notice.

XCOM: Chimera Squad just released. I completed two missions so far. Doesn't feel quite like an XCOM game in the traditional sense, but almost like a SWAT simulator. As before, the division between factions this time is no longer along lines of race or species, but rather along faith and motives. Interesting seeing how the franchise has evolved since the 90s.

The new Breach game mechanic is pretty cool too, as this wasn't an official option in past installments and therefore players were easily prone to haphazard assaults into rooms or areas of high enemy concentration. Plus you no longer need any fancy tasers or other devices to capture live targets. You can simply subdue them, but you have to be in melee range.

My cousin has been talking fondly about this game, and the reviews appear to back that up. Guess I'll have to add it to my wish list.

I didnt initially realise that the rpg aspect is almost entirely conversation based. because you have an inventory space for bullets i thought it was an introduction. once i realised that the conversations are the game it started making alot more sense. the skill trees are fairly overwhelming at the start.

Picked up a couple Indies and they are all excellent so far for different reasons.

Ape out (favorite so far), GatoRoboto, Minit

 

I've had my eye on disco Elysium but haven't picked it up yet. Is it the kind of game that can be played in ~30m-1hr bursts, or does the experience/structure lend itself to longer sittings? I find I only have time to play games bit by bit

Also considering void bastards, but would ask the same question as with disco Elysium

Void Bastards can absolutely be played in brief time bursts, as most vessel raids take about 10 minutes. Also if you have a Nintendo Switch it'll be available May 7th.

The 90s game Flashback is currently $1 on Switch eShop

https://www.nintendo.com/games/detail/flashback-switch/

Holy shit thank you for the information !! Flashback is one of my favorite games, I recently unearthed my Megadrive to play it again lol but at this price it's a steal.

The only problem imo is that the "remastered" soundtrack sounds very bad compared to the Megadrive OST... But I guess that's just me being nostalgic !

I 'member playing the 2013 remaster once, but the voice acting/dialogue was so cringe that I had to stop.

I think it was a sequel to Another World/Out Of This World, and prequel to Fade To Black which was full 3D (but kinda sucked). Was one of my favorite games on the SNES back then. And early Blizzard's game Blackthorne had very similar gameplay.

Those of us who were here in early November 2013 might also remember a certain Featured Artist adopting the Flashback title artwork as his avatar...

OK so after a few minutes playing : you can choose between a "modern" version (with a tutorial for the different moves and the ability to rewind your gameplay when you die) or the 1993 original.

And the 1993 original version has the original Megadrive OST so I'm a happy man ! The SFX are different so its not 100% the same thing but still !
