I started up a new game in Prison Architect. I think I've managed to isolate the cause of my previous crashes to guards using their taser, for some reason, so now I've simply avoided researching tasers, and the game runs fine.

I've also activated the game mode where there are no limits to the types of contraband that can be smuggled into the prison, which has led to hilarious results. Instead of your usual suspects like booze, cell phones, drugs, cigarettes, shanks, etc, people are trying to smuggle in submachine guns, rakes, hoses, guard uniforms, cleaning brushes, gardening shears, etc. Someone tried to mail a freaking sniper rifle into my prison. Fortunately I have guards sorting the mail, so they found the gun before it reached any prisoners' hands, but still.

Hollow Knight

Has this installed for awhile. Can't even remember how I got it; I THINK in Humble Bundle Monthly.

Anyway, I'm enjoying it quite a bit. I love the setting and especially the art style. I never get tired of seeing all the different character designs. Hopefully i keep on it through to the end.

I find big, Metrovania games like this hard to return to if I take a break from it. It happened to me with others like Axiom Verge, Guacamelee, Outland. All great games that I enjoyed... until I took a break from them. Then I'd try loading them up again...and I'm completely at a loss for where I left off. I've yet to beat any of those games. I think I got pretty close to beating Axiom Verge.

I find this with most open games like this. Stardew Valley and Cities Skylines, for example. I'll forget what I was building towards or something.

Still, I'm enjoying Hollow Knight right now.

Now that Kenshi has upgraded to 1.0 after being in "Early Access" for many years, I fired it up again after having it lounge around in my Library for at least
4 years. Still needs some optimization, but it is a full game. Kinda Mad Max meets Mount and Blade.

I think I've managed to kick my WoW fever (round 4), and have dropped back into Civilization VI with the new Gathering Storm expac. Enjoying so far. Should not have settled a city next to Mount Vesuvius... that was a poor choice.

Oh crap. I made a character on another server. Should I remake her in the morning before I get too far?

I remade her (super easy. It let me reload her appearance) and I’ll make her on Marlboro in the morning :)

Well I recently got back into FFXIV. I'm on Exodus though. But if we ever do a "communal" thing sometime cross-server, I'm up for it. Level 64 summoner right now, still going through the Stormblood stuff.

Level 5 Arcanistt hoping to grow up and become a summoner. I’m a pink cat lol. I had to be.

How does cross server work?

TIL about Town of Salem, which basically seems to be a browser based version of similar games such as Werewolf. Would anyone be interested in playing this as a forum game night sometime? I feel like we'd need a bunch to have it be fun.

I played it for a little while several years ago, I really like it (way more than in-person versions). As long as I'm not busy when it's scheduled, I'm game.

Devil May Cry 5 is fucking incredible.

Holy shit fellers.

I don't know who lit the fire under Capcom's ass, but bravo. All their games lately have been beyond excellent.

The new mini keyboard works pretty well. I’m still getting used to the controls. A mouse would be easier, but I’ll get there.

I’m loving the exp boost because I’m thinking that I won’t need to do every side quest. Usually I’m all over those.

With the xp boost you can pretty much ignore side quests and just do main story. Anything that is important and unlocks stuff will be blue, but the common yellow ones you can save for doing later on other jobs

I got 3 jobs (technically 4 but summoner/scholar share exp) to 50 before I even finished the story. I did have to randomly wander off to do side quests sometimes, if the level of the story quest got ahead of me, but not until the higher levels.

I thought even on consoles if you wanted to use mouse/kb, you could?

It gets better for secondary jobs. The greater the distance between your top one and the one you're playing, the greater the exp boost. You get from 1-10 in like 10 monsters (just about) on any new jobs if you care to level them.

And I have alt-itis REALLY bad:

64 Summoner (Sch, Arc)
59 Paladin
57 Astrologian
53 Red Mage
52 Dragoon
32 Black Mage (just beyond soul quest)
31 Bard (I had to be able to play music when it came in)
30 White Mage (just did the soul quest and stopped)
30 Dark Knight (that doesn't count, just did the intro quest)
30 Machinist (same as DK)

59 Botanist
Can't remember what my DoH class is (tailor? something like that) but really low, like sub-20

I’m sure I could use a mouse and keyboard later on. Right now, I’m laid up with a bad knee and I’m on a recliner with my knee propped up on a huge stuffed bear....a mini keyboard that fits on the controller is super easy for me right now :)

So, going forward will I gain Scholar levels as I gain Summoner levels?

Your alt-it’s is awesome. I was terrible in WoW. So terrible.

Since they announced the Rune Factory 4 remaster, and Rune Factory 5 for Switch, my husband and I have been playing 4 over again on our 3dses. (It's not multiplayer, but he started playing it again so I wanted to)

Once you hit 30 you'll have a quest from the Archanist guild master, finish that one then there will be a quest each to unlock summoner and scholar as job crystals, both are initially picked up from the Archanist guild.

When you've completed the summoner and scholar quests, their level matches whatever your archanist level is and any xp gained as either applies to archanist.

Just ran through them myself and am at 31ish now with all three.

They expect you to level at least 8 characters to 50, if not higher. I'd say this is entirely on them.
That's fair enough.

Mahavir Isha, 70 Togruta Male Jedi Sentinel LS
Strayer Voight, 70 Human Male Mercenary LS
Verdugo Estoque, 70 Sith Male Marauder DS
Zhora Feral, 40 Zabrak Female Powertech LS
H'rrao Mreran, 22 Cathar Male Vanguard DS
Vander'vecken, 46 Twi'lek Male Scoundrel LS
Azura T'Loak, 46 Chiss Female Powertech DS
Pilara Torgrena, 25 Sith Female Gunslinger LS
Xenophon Djoenis, 61 Ratatak Male Assassin DS
Gunn'hildr, 57 Mirilian Female Commando LS
Bucky Wintersol, 61 Cyborg Male Operative LS
Tarth Vayder, 41 Human Female Juggernaut LS
Corvus Fitzroy, 46 Human Male Sage LS
Rusala Arkhot, 66 Mirulakan Female Shadow LS
Beliye Kolgotky, 37 Mirulakan Female Sniper* DS

* this is weird overly complicated bad joke. 'beliye kolgotky' is Russian for 'white tights', which was the colloquial term for female snipers in the second world war, due to their winter camouflage. Mirulakans don't have eyes. So you have an eyeless sniper.

It's entirely possible to go past 30 before you receive this quest. The quests for sub-jobs is unlocked through a story mission, I was level 40 before my archer became a bard.

I'm just pointing this out because saying 'at level 30' is really confusing for new players, especially those getting big xp buffs.

I get ya. I worded it poorly.

Just explaining it as it occurred to me. I'm new, never played before Saturday. I suppose if you're not doing the guild job quests every 5 levels that could delay it but I was aiming for Summoner from the start so beelined a bit for it.

The Archanist story quest that ultimately unlocked the sub-jobs was marked as locked for me until 30, big red text when I visited her saying come back at lvl 30. Then once I finished that Archanist quest, the Summoner one was available immediately after from the interim guild leader and Scholar quest from one of the Guild Reps.

The "get a second class to 15" thing was dropped years ago and was a hold over from 1.0. You don't need to do it for any class...

The only class with "special" lock-outs (other than getting to Ishgard or being level 50) is Summoner, which actually requires you to do some things before some class quests become available.
