I'm playing the hell out of some Far Cry 4.

At about 55% completion in 30 hours.

Re: What Are You Playing? (April 2016)

Soo....what am I playing...


Xbox One
Ziggurat - Fun game, maybe someday I'll actually beat it. Pain in the butt though and somehow I want to keep playing.

Xbox 360
Lego Batman - Yes, the original. Playing it thru my XB1, had one achievement left over from 2012 (I actually started the game in 2008 and then shelved it after a couple of months and then picking it up again 4 years down the line) due to a crappy glitch. So I'm playing the story mode from start to finish like it was the first time and once I go into free play I'll grab the citizens (glitched achievement because I played it with my ex-wife) and finally 100% this sucker.

That's the active ones, assuming I finish Lego Batman this month and don't wait 4 more years or get bored of Ziggurat I'll probably switch to a Telltale like Wolf Among Us or Game of Thrones.

Conan as I remember it was decent little hack n slash, it would probably feel dated now though I imagine. And currently its not BC and I would imagine its not that popular of a game. Though that hasn't exactly stopped a few of the titles from becoming BC, I just wouldn't put it high on the list of possibles.

I always wanted to play it because it was Conan, but never got around to it. And yeah, I don't think I've ever even seen it on a request list.

Re: What Are You Playing? (April 2016)

Now that my overclocked i7-6700K, GTX 980 ti, and 32GB RAM system is up and running, I've been playing:

Goat Simulator - my 3-year-old loves watching the goat run around.


VVVVVV - Powered through this one in one sitting. Didn't get all the collectibles, but had a blast with it.


Super Win The Game - Took about 3 or 4 sittings to get through. I really liked it. LOVED the music. It has the absolute best CRT filter I've ever seen, and puts all other "retro" games to shame in that regard. It makes playing all other "pixel-perfect" retro games less engaging. Such a strange thing, as I never gave a shit about that kind of thing when playing emulators.

Spoiler:


Undertale - Really cute and fun so far. Already made one big mistake... tempted to go back and redo it but

Spoiler:
I already know that the game 'remembers' what you do, even when you start a new game.

After playing Super Win The Game, my only real complaint about Undertale is the lack of CRT filter. That would have taken this game to a whole new level.


So yeah... making great use out of my new gaming PC and its capabilities.

(I'll be starting Quantum Break on PC in about a week, but I'll play it a bit on Xbox One first)

I scanned through this and saw the games you were playing and immediately thought "wait, didn't Dan just get a fancy new gaming system?"

Well, I did play about 20 minutes of Portal 2 on the highest possible settings, and it was wonderful, but my focus has been on my Steam library which is mostly filled with Indie Bundle games I never got around to playing, while I patiently wait for my Quantum Break PC code to show up.

I'm playing on the 360. I had started the game years ago and got stuck for a long time and traded it. I saw it for $2 used and decided to give it another try. I think it has a rep for having some difficult bosses. It's ok.

How is this? I've been waiting for a great rally game. My favorite racing game was RalliSport Challenge 2.

I tried Dirt on the Xbox (original) and never fell in love with it.
