I like 2 types of games the most:
- Tower Defence - e.g. Baloon Tower Defence
- Sniper - Hitman:Sniper

I mean, if you really love the gameplay then I think you could get into it solo, but it really is much, much more enjoyable once you get to know some people and hop around as a group.

It's a flat out FPS, but in typical Blizzard style there are a lot of pretty in-depth mechanics that make it interesting to me. Blizzard calls the classes Offense (primarily DPS and quick for the most part), Defense (a mix of DPS/AOE and still relatively quick compared to the Tanks), Tanks (self-explanatory I think), and Support (healers/other support functions). The interation between all these in a single game is pretty intense if you can get together with people that actually want to play as a team.

I think OW is a wonderful game, but again, it's primarily an FPS and it's mostly definitely a Blizzard game.

Sounds cool for what it is. I love Destiny (both) and I can't get myself to play PvP in it at all so I should probably assume it wouldn't do anything for me. :p :)

Thanks tho.

Did you ever play Defense Grid? It and its sequel were the most entertaining tower defense games I've ever played. I figure that, if you're a fan, you'd have seen them by now, but it's always possible that something slips by.

The only real tower defense is custom games in SC: Brood War. I will die on this hill.

All the Starship Troopers-themed UMS scenarios in Brood War were sure fun back in the 90s, anyway :lol:

I've been playing Vox Machina on my Rift lately and it has been a ton of fun! The movement controls for the mech are all setup in virtual space, i.e. you have move your hands to the controls and squeeze the grip triggers to "grab" the controls and then move your hand to adjust the controls. You can also grab the other displays in the cockpit and position them in better positions. I've found the controls surprisingly easy to use. It really make you feel like you're actually in the mech!

I'm giving Cities Skylines another play through, I picked up what people consider 3 of the better xpacs/dlc for half this weekend. The one DLC I didn't get is the natural disasters, which looks like a great throw back to sim city's natural disasters back in the day. If I enjoy a couple of play troughs without it maybe ill pick that up as well.

Been playing Spider-Man for PS4, and it's definitely up there with Arkham Asylum/City when it comes to great superhero games. It's also another big win for fans of story-driven single-player games.
On second thought, let's not go to TechReport. Tis a silly place.

I got into the "beta" of Google Project Stream so I'm gonna play a little AssCreed Odyssey. I played a few minutes last night and it seemed to run alright. We'll see!

Overload, and enjoying the whole shebang.

If you liked Descent, this is it's modern(ish) reboot. Made by the same guys, and done well. Two thumbs up.

playing the original Disgaea on PS4. These games are so good, so crazy, and such a timesink. I wish they’d added some of the later games’ combat features but it’s ok that they didn’t. I really liked the combo skills in Disgaea 3 but that feature hasn’t been seen in any others.

The past week or so we've been playing Ring of Elysium. It's PUBG but new and with snow/ice and much simpler. It's not really PUBG it's just BR and Early Access on Steam. It's fine. Still early days so lots of bugs/glitches/whatever.

My daughter has hijacked my PS4 this afternoon and is playing Disgaea herself now. She thought she got the combat because she'd been watching me, but when she took over it was obvious there was a lot to learn. Positional strategies and moving player chars to make room for other player chars, how to clear Geo Symbols in item world, just lots of stuff she is learning and it's a joy to watch her do it.

She likes to fight using the prinnies. I've never gotten them beyond level 3 or 4, instead choosing classes that are better for fighting, but she's making them work up to level 8 so far. :lol:

Replaying Nier: Automata on Hard after laughing at some n00bs trying a blind playthrough on Hard.

Stopped laughing when I tried the prologue on Hard. A single hit from the boss will take you down to a sliver of health, and insta-kill you if you're not at full health.

Finally beat the prologue after close to a dozen tries, I do like that the game doesn't pull any punches on Hard (and that's not even the Very Hard difficulty).

Made it to the starting area of Chapter 1, decided to wander around the ruins, and saw some Moose (Meese?) in the distance. Ran up to them, forgot I did not have the items that pacify animals yet, drew aggro from a Moose, and he headbutted me to death.

10/10 would play again.

After seeing the double-Prinny magichange, I put Disgaea 1 down and picked up Disgaea 5. Gaming has always been a fun father/daughter bonding time in my house. This afternoon my daughter and I finished Disgaea 5 for apparently the first time (since we were getting PS4 trophies for completing each episode from 11 onward) and we were weirdly invested in the story. We breezed through the latter half of the game this week, since she was off school for most of it and I was on vacation.

She's getting the first game for Christmas on the Switch. I think I'm creating a fan of the strategy games, which is cool. I'll probably wait to revisit it myself, but right now I need a palate cleanser. :lol:

It has been an age since I posted here. Thought I would stop by, say hi, and participate.

I just finished Red Dead Redemption 2 on PS4 Pro, and I am about to start AC Black Flag on PC since I always read great things about it, but never got around to buying it. It was
$7 or so on steam. I was burned out on the series after trying to play AC 3 and being unable to get in to it. I had played every installment to that point. I also picked up Odyssey for $40 on steam since it seems like a nice departure from the old style i remember.

Lulz, just saw my sig. That is how long it has been!

I love 3 types of games ARPG/Loot Based, 4X Games especially the Civ Series, and Street Fighter. After 5ish years I can't play Diablo 3 any more. A friend had been playing Warframe on and off and I finally gave it a try, it's not bad. I'm not the biggest fan of starting over leveling new frames, but it forces me to try new frames and I find I really like some of the new ones. I'm also thinking about firing up Border Lands and Civ: Beyond Earth again soon.
