I got a hankering to play some Divinity: Original Sin 2 again. This time I figured I'm going to play in Tactician Honour Mode, which is the hardest difficulty level, and you only get 1 save game, which is deleted if you get a game over. In other words, if you get a party wipe, that's it, your playthrough's over. But I'm experienced at this game now, I can handle it.

Two minutes into the game, I get killed by a sheep, game over.

Rage 2. So far it's basically Far Cry if Far Cry had fun, satisfying gunplay. I'm enjoying myself so far.
When it comes on sale I'll play it. Or when July rolls around. Just don't have $60 lying around for games when I got stuff to play already.

So, while I wait for my new video card to come in I've been going back to Pathfinder Kingmaker which I bounced off of SUPER fiercely due to the kingdom management part of the game. Now that I've returned and tried it with the management part set to Effortless, I've been enjoying the game ALOT more. The game feels a bit more balanced now too and I'm going to guess that some patches have fixed the game up a bit and the encounters aren't crushingly brutal constantly anymore.

Okay, this time I managed to actually beat Divinity: Original Sin 2 on Tactician Honour mode. Mainly by not playing as a dumbass. But holy jeez that was a hard experience. It's comparable to beating XCOM Long War.

Went for Lohse's... well... bad ending. Mainly just for the achivement.

Have you ever had trouble picking a game to start? I finished Dues Ex: Mankind Divided, blew through What Remains of Edith Finch, and now...I'm kind of stuck. I have a ton of games to play, I just can't make myself start one and I don't know why. My daughter was playing Fallout 4 on my machine the other day, and that's what I wanted. I need a new Fallout that doesn't involve other people.

For now, I'll check out Stories Untold I guess.

Since I decided to play all my games in alphabetical order, I started to see gaming as work. I haven't play anything in almost two weeks.

Yes which is oddly why I've made myself refrain from buying any games this year. I need to actually play what I own but almost everytime I go to start, I stare at my massive steam list and just restart something I've already played.

For me it's that I have so little time to play that a disappointment really hurts. DE:MD was okay, but nothing special for me. I installed Arkham Knight, but can't make myself start it because it feels like it's just another Batman game. I want something...moving? I need a story right now, and I'm not sure what will fulfill that.

Divinity: Original Sin 2 has tons of story.

And sheep. Quite a few sheep.

I think I fired up Empyrion on my computer last night.
Then I ran around doing other things around the house for a couple hours.
Then I came back and quit out of the game.
I don’t feel like that really counts as “playing.”

Somehow Total War: Three Kingdoms flew under my radar and is out in a few days. Total War, and in one of the most interesting periods of Chinese history? Sign me up. However, after the failure of their last game Total War: Thrones of Britannia, I'm a little uneasy. Warhammer Total War 1 + 2 are going to be hard to beat, regardless.

I completely missed Three Kingdoms, too. Huh. I'll have to look ip up and research a bit - the last one I really loved was Empire :confused:

I started Stories Untold last night. The first chapter took about a half hour, it was pretty obvious where it was going, and it was still super effective. Looking forward to chapter 2.

For nostalgia's sake, I fired up Prototype again.

Man, I'd forgotten how fun it is to be Alex Mercer. This is another outstanding game in the open-world mayhem genre that I like so much. It helps that the city is full of bystanders, and they'll panic oh-so-satisfyingly when you start to unleash your powers.

I haven't played the sequel yet, though it's in my Steam inventory. I think I'll definitely try it out when I finish my playthrough of the first game.
