What Are You Playing? (May 2016)
 
I just bought this bundle on Steam today:

There's two reasons to re-buy these games. The Hub:



And mod support has been added for all the games. They have an entire Mario game, Wolfenstein 3D, and even Fix It Felix Jr. There's almost 300 mods uploaded so far.

Also switching between

Quantum Break on XBox One

King's Quest Chapter 3 on PC

And then waiting patiently for Uncharted 4. Sounds like I won't get to finish replaying Uncharted 3 before it comes out.

I never finished Uncharted 3, so I'm trying to beat it before 4 comes out. I'm alittle less than halfway through.

Still playing Mass Effect 3 and The Division. Don't feel like I'm making much progress with either. Also just started Uncharted 2 remastered today.

Let's see:

Xbox One
Stranger of Sword City (I like torture and lots of grinding)
Borderlands 2(Handsome Collection) OR Borderlands (BC) (can't decide which one to play)
Ziggurat (eventually I'll survive the Ziggurat)
Lego Batman (BC) (I'm going to get that remaining achievement, I swear, glitch or not)

Awesome experience. I wouldn't call it "fun", but it was definitely one of the best games I've ever played.

You are in for quite the treat. I played it on the 360, and it was well worth my time and then some. I actually re-bought it for the Xbox One during Black Friday last year for my backlog. I'll probably play it during the summer months when things tend to be a bit slow. Fantastic, fun game.

That's pretty much how I explain TLoU to anyone who hasn't played it. You might not have "fun" playing it in the moment, but the experience will follow you for years to come.

As of May 4th...

Just finished my fourth (!) run through Ratchet and Clank on the PS4 to get the platinum. My wife is almost done with her first playthrough and wants to do the whole Challenge Mode thing too. Believe it or not, this is the first platinum I've ever gotten on the PS4.

Maggie's also addicted to Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 Fortune, which I wouldn't have guessed. I'm pretty close to platinum-ing that one too...just one trophy away. (Well, two, but one of them is "collect all trophies", so...) I'm at level 39 now, and I'll get the platinum once I cross level 50. We're using separate profiles, so her obsession isn't feeding my progress, and that's totally okay.

The only game I know I'm getting this month is Uncharted 4. After that, I'm not sure what I'll play. Maybe the Day of the Tentacle remaster. Maybe dig my old Ratchet and Clank games out of storage. If the Overwatch open beta really grabs one of us, that could be a thing too. Maggie was hopelessly addicted to Splatoon, and I'm wondering if Overwatch might scratch that same itch.

As of May 15th...

Maggie's finished Challenge Mode (normal) on Ratchet and Clank. I got my platinum on DOAX3 and finished the last two episodes of Saturday Morning RPG for the Vita. Still haven't started Uncharted 4 yet.

I am still playing Phantom Pain. Trying to complete all the side missions, run through all the main missions and complete all tasks and get my teams with only S members. Its taking forever. Still, i never get bored with it.

Agree 100%. I couldn't play for more than an hour or so at a shot because of how intense it was. But in the end, it was a gaming experience I won't forget.

Got it cheap at some point for the PS3 ... got around to playing it. I never played any of the other Far Cry games, and I'm not particularly a fan of shooters. But I can enjoy great games in any genre, and this seemed to get universal acclaim.

It was fun. My only gripe was how I didn't like like how defeating the main villains simply came down to quick time events. I finished the game with none of the outposts cleared on the South Island, and the "Monkey See, Monkey Boom" DLC unfinished. But after 30+ hours of the game, I think I'm tired of it and ready to try something different.

Next I think I'll play a shorter game in a completely different genre:

Finally finished another game off my unfinished pile of shame

I just finished 2 this morning and started 3 shortly after. I finished the trilogy on PS3 but am replaying on the HD remaster collection before starting 4 :)
