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.

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.

I finished Nier Automata last night. I've got a bit of cleaning up to do and optional content, but I'm not much for completionism nowadays. I am enjoying the gag endings though.

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…

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

well--there's a choice you're given at a certain point where you can answer "yes" or "no". choosing "yes" causes the choice to unfold in front of you without you being able to stop it

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.

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

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.

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?

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.

I feel like the plot of a Just Cause game is largely an excuse to justify giving you a ton of stuff to blow up everywhere, so that's not too big of a surprise.

Here, The Golf Club 2019, since KS and Raspberry are both playing it. I don't find it quite as fun as the old anime golf games, since it's a lot less clear about how things work, and the options for character customization are... sparse, to say the least. None of the options look good. And for some reason they made sure to give you several options for pimple placements, which. ew.

The commentator in the game is also exceedingly bad.

So I got the official 100% of this today, but there's still some tracked challenges to do like no-damage no-timestop for all the bosses and filling out the bestiary, but that's only if I want to.

I might.

I'm playing Perfect Dark for the first time. My roommate's been pestering me to play it for the past 13 years (things that happened in the time that I've spent deferring playing Perfect Dark: 3 presidential elections (including Barack Obama's entire 8 years as president), Hurricane Katrina, the mortgage crisis and Great Recession, the death of Osama Bin Laden), me realizing I was trans, me coming out as trans, me getting on HRT (there's about a 4-year-gap between each of the last 3 events ), but I'm finally getting around to it!!

The level design's some of the best I've seen in an FPS (I think of the FPSes I've played only Doom beats it, but then I haven't played Doom II or 64 ), and the graphics are really, really, realllllly good for an N64 game holy crap they're genuinely impressive. The only criticism I have is that the framerate is awful, which, duh. It does get a little problematic when you're in a hectic situation where like 10 people are shooting at you, which is like, the worst time for the framerate to dip. (There is, hilariously, a hi-res mode that makes the framerate even worse -- I might play around with it later, but no way in hell I'm trying it on my first playthrough.)

But God is it fun in spite of that. I'm even going to go out on a limb here and say it's a massive improvement over Goldeneye, a pretty good but not amazingly great game. I also genuinely think Goldeneye is one of the ugliest games on the N64, so the fact that Perfect Dark is one of the best-looking shows how much Rare had honed their talents towards the end of the era. They really hit their peak around that time, and it's a shame they only had about 2 years left before they completely collapsed.
