Aside from Minecraft yet again, I've been playing Just Cause 2. It's got much more of a quantity of quality approach than most games I think. You can get a pretty good indication in the first hour of what the game is like, and I can guarantee that if you don't like that you don't like the rest of the game either.

In it's credit and I feel to it's detriment the main plot is very short though, and you're mostly free to do side missions and faff about blowing stuff up in the intermediate time. It does limit the amount of overarching plot...
Also, it feels like as far as Panau is concerned the populace loses out no matter what happens.

Guild Wars 2: Path of Free (playing without paying).
It's kinda complicated. Maybe a little too complicated. I only get 2 character slots, and I want to make more, but I must pay 800 gems per slot. To obtain these gems, I must get TWO sets of 5,000 achievement points (5,000 points generates 400 gems). To get these points, I must do all manner of things in the game, and only the ones that are access-only-to-paying-users have any good value number of achievement points. The sad part is it's got a REALLY good character creation system, which is pretty much the whole reason I got it (I operate it from an external hard drive because the game files are 40.43 GB, occupied mostly by one .dat file, which I cannot edit to mess with the game because I only have 8GB of RAM). This is why I quit using Steam. I cannot befriend anybody until I pay, I cannot send messages until I pay, I cannot comment on anything in the forums until I pay, I cannot access certain locations until I pay, I cannot buy certain weapons until I pay, I cannot earn sufficient points of any type until I pay, and if I did pay, it would automatically open up enough features that THE BENEFITS OF PAYING BECOME MOOT (except the gameplay experience).
Thankfully, you don't have to pay to join a guild, or else the goals would be unattainable and defeat the purpose of free gameplay entirely (a scent so strong you can almost taste it, but you can't sample it unless you pay... except then you get the whole meal). This is why full-version trial periods exist WITH basic free versions. All I can say is I am glad there is freedom in this game and I have no time limit, especially since I AM IN COLLEGE and have schoolwork to keep me otherwise busy, which makes me wish there was an idle skill-building feature.
I can say there are like ZERO bugs and ZERO lag, so that's a plus-plus.
If they could change one thing, I want the characters I interact with to speak their full dialogue rather than making me read it. I AM AN AUDITORY LEARNER. There are NPCs galore that you can't do anything more than GREET, but if you are present at the right time, they'll have LONG conversations that really don't have a great impact on the story. SO WHY NOT THE ONES THAT DO HAVE STORY IMPACT?
Detailed enough, Xkeeper?

I made a save file editor for that and gave myself wacky stats. Didn't beat the game, but did annihilate pretty much every achievement. It was a fun project for a while. I'm still waiting on D5PC to come out, because that'll probably be much the same.


As for me, a bit burnt out on Terraria, so I might use the Everdrive GB and play Mario Golf on a real console for a while.

I haven't deleted my save file yet, if that's what you mean.

Mario Golf, sort of? Less playing and more breaking, as we try to figure out how the passwords work.

Well, that and the occasional (large) game of Net. I usually do 20×15 or 25×20. Takes a while to solve, but it's usually pretty straight-forward.

Uh, you'll have to be slightly less obtuse for me to answer that question.

This is the type of context I am incredibly bad at.

it's hard to be less obtuse without spoilers

βI finally got a winning (i.e., “final boss defeated”) single run of Enter the Gungeon pretty recently! I've been trying switching from the Marine to the Convict, but I'm having trouble getting used to the Convict playstyle… I've actually been leaning toward maybe going for the Pilot next, because I'm really feeling those lockpicks (+ second active item slot if you're willing to lose them later) and that shop discount…

Still playing Terraria here... Might need to take a break from it soon, as we're basically at the end-game in terms of what's left to do. Still missing a few drops we want, but other than starting over (again) what do you do when you've already done everything?

I heard another Picross game came out on Switch, so maybe that's something to do.

We've been playing Terraria in Expert mode. Turns out that when you have a weapon that gets down to basically one-frame-per-attack, most bosses tend to melt instantly.

So we farmed Golem about 10 times, and there's another 50 Golem batteries if we ever get bored.

Arc the Lad 1 complete!

Everyone's in the 50s (Arc and Tosh are at max level, 60, because of sidequests, namely the Choko and Proving Grounds ones) in preparation for Arc 2.

Pretty meh game, but it's like Soul Blazer to me. It's not that special, but I've played worse. It fits squarely in the inoffensive yet average category. It does what it did just fine, and that's ok. I'd have appreciated more places to grind rather than stick them all in the early game until you reach Zariban. You CAN mostly solo the game as Arc in around 10h if you don't plan to transfer the save to Arc 2, but still.

Tosh is a cutie

Also playing Digimon World: Current partner is Bakemon, wanted Leomon but what're ya gonna do. File City's prosperity at 10.
Wild ARMs: PS1, not Alter Code F. Heading to the Sand River, also beat Chaos.
and Summon Night 1: Not Swordcraft Story. At Chapter 5 of 19. Might restart just to translate the dialogue for myself, I haven't been paying attention to it and that's a shame. Chapters are pretty short (a few story scenes; travelling about Seijent to speak with party members, buying items/armor and grinding in Free Battles; and 1 or 2 mandatory story battles) so it's not a huge issue. Game's fun too. Edos and Leid are shaped like friends

Also still at Mt. Gagazet in Final Fantasy X International, haven't touched that in a while 💦💦

Kinda in the mood to play more SRPGs thanks to SN and Arc, might try Shining Force, Ogre Battle or FF Tactics again soon.

EDIT: Also played Barkley's Shut Up and Jam: Gaiden some weeks back. It was pretty amazing.

Mainly playing random things right now; some very unspecific, some very specific...

Specific: Voltorb Flip in Pokemon SoulSilver, ex. when on the bus or otherwise waiting for something.
Unspecific: Mid-90s to mid-2000s PC games on my newly built Athlon XP machine, like Unreal Tournament 2003.
