So what is everyone playing these days?


Personally, I am just playing on my phone these days. Three games mostly, Pokemon Go, Star Trek Fleet Commander, and Transformers Earth Wars.


I do get some time with Minecraft every now and then on the switch.

Pokemon Go, another play through of Miles Morales to get myself through another platinum on the PS5, and playing some of the Castlevainia Advance Collection.

Monster Hunter: Rise

I've never played anything from this series before and it's all kinda overwhelming (every button brings up a whole new menu, guh), so I've been taking it slow in the free-play Expedition missions.

Finally sitting down to give Dark Souls the actual time of day. I'm surprisingly having fun with it this time around. Just reached Anor Londo.

Just finished some console games, debating what to play/finish next. Currently I'm playing mobile games:
Obey Me! (Male harem game)
Time Princess (Dress up and stories)
The Arcana (Romance stories, LGBT+ friendly)
Cat Game (cat collecting)
Aggretsuko (match-3 type)

The first two are the most fun, The Arcana is really engrossing but I'm mostly done reading it. The other two I play for quick sessions (eg waiting for an appointment).

My abusive relationship with Enter the Gungeon remains as strong as ever, but I've added a new infuriating roguelike to the mix, Void Bastards. It's a first-person shooter with heavy System Shock inspiration and a tone right out of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Technically it's a roguelite in the vein of Hades or Rogue Legacy because you occasionally make permanent progress towards the eventual goal, but that's just being used as an excuse to make the game even more dickish in other ways. The game doesn't have bosses (or levels) in the traditional sense, but unless you have the item that makes pirate ships disappear, they'll camp the ship that contains your major progression item and you have to deal with a ship full of minibosses. I managed to survive once and I don't remember how.

Also I started Hollow Knight. The bosses have been pushovers so far, but the platforming... got super hard around the point the bouncy mushrooms showed up. Every single person I've watched play this game has made it look way easier than it is. And the frame-perfect timing I have to do with my wall-grip and dash to hit the switch to open the pit to the Mantis Lords is insane. I might have to try playing with the keyboard and see if I'm any better with that.

Oh, and I finally snagged a component cable for my PS2, so I'm probably going to biting into that massive backlog pretty soon, provided I can figure out where my memory card got to. It isn't in with any of the other PS2 accessories so I'm probably going to have to turn my whole room upside down. This is the second memory card that's gone missing now; I'm starting to suspect they just have a despawn timer.

UPDATE: OK, it turned out it was in the amorphous pile of papers that I'd also buried my shovelware DS games in. Realizing they weren't on top of said pile with the good ones was the clue.

Unsighted, because I need my fix of depressing indie tech girl shit and it's been too long since Iconoclasts.

Background rotation:
Fallout 4 replay
Quake remaster
Power Wash Simulator
Destiny 2
Dead By Daylight

You may test that assumption at your convinience.

Lots and lots of valheim.

And I've been meaning to start a new character on "new world" since I downloaded it.... but... valheim. Need to finish the lodge and find more swamps.

What is power wash simulator?
It's a simulation of using a power washer.

I wish I was being sarcastic, I really do. But I'm not. You play as a guy who owns a power wash company and you CLEAN SHIT, run and upgrade the company and that's the game.

It's like, 90% pretty straightforward Just Really Cathartic Powerwashing, the last 10% is weird quirky humor and stuff going on in the town that you get via text updates from your clients/friends/family as you progress through the jobs. It's nothing like other games with Simulator in the title that are all acid trippy and half-baked physics abortions masquerading as a game.

I mean, you could, yes, but I do enjoy more precise control over my sprayer.

Well Miles is again nearly 100% Trophy wise, Again just missing the 100 hit combo. Once you max out the skills it becomes even a bit too tough to obtain as you take out enemies too fast. Ended up finishing playthroughs of Super Metroid and Metroid Fusion before Dread comes this weekend. Debating on grabbing either Nick All Star Brawl or Monkey Ball Banana Mania tomorrow just for fun.

Cowboy Lizard Man! The costumes in Monster Hunter are kinda amazing. My cat's got this horror nurse outfit made out the skin of a nightmarish Dead Hand Dragon thing.
