I'm still playing the hell outta Baldur's Gate 3. I've played through so many times, have multiple multiplayer campaigns going on, and I'm just having a lot of fun with mods.

[-] joho 5 points 7 months ago

Also still playing but still on the first play through. Such a good game. I didn’t try any mods yet. Are there any you can recommend?

[-] popekingjoe 8 points 7 months ago

The Improved UI mods are definitely nice. Better Containers too. Uncomplicated mods that improve general usability. I also like the Pretty Font Project.

Achievement Enabler, the Mod Fixer, and the Native Mod Loader are all also helpful, though I'm not entirely sure they are needed for the UI mods, though it doesn't hurt to have them. The Achievement Enabler allows you to still earn achievements with mods if that wasn't obvious, and the native mod loader allows the game to load the achievement enabler.

Beyond that, I'd recommend just looking around on Nexus. There are thousands to look through, ranging from improving classes and races to adding spells to straight up making you a god.

I about 120 hours paly time and still on Act 1 in Baldur's Gate 3. I have a problem. I want to pick up everything and sell it. That takes a lot of time. I also switch my party around all the time to try to work companions quests

I think most people pick a group and stick with that group. Also most people don't need to pick up a fork and sell it. I may have to change my play style it i want to finish the game anytime soon.

Oh and I am loving this game. It plays very well with my Ubuntu/Nvidia/Steam PC.

[-] Thehalfjew 3 points 7 months ago

I have a similar thing, but I got over it by committing to robbing every vendor of everything they have. Then there's no one to buy the stupid fork.

[-] Dremor 12 points 7 months ago

In my case I'm finishing Sea of Stars, a very good old-school RPG. You get 22h+ of main story in easy mode, I think it is worth the price.

[-] [email protected] 2 points 7 months ago

I finished that one up last week and loved it! Might be my GotY, honestly.

I gave in to the hype and bought BG3. And this is the first time in ages where I've bought a brand new AAA game and not been disappointed.

I have a brand new PC, so it's about time I ran something more demanding than Factorio on it.

[-] [email protected] 6 points 7 months ago

Factorio is a pretty demanding game as long as you play long enough

[-] [email protected] 4 points 7 months ago

I know. I have an angelbob megabase save that clocks in at 788MB. To play it I need to add an additional 16GB of swap. I figured that it was about time the GPU did some heavy lifting too.

[-] the_rhyme_minister 11 points 7 months ago

Completely in love with Starfield. Just finished a big storyline that had the feel of a good TV serial. The sort of self-directed epilogue of looking at my quest log and trying decide what I want to do next felt awesome and I’m going to be chasing that for while.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 7 months ago

Same here, played the UC SysDef undercover questline yesterday and couldn't stop playing, so i ended up playing until 3 am lol. The amount of stuff that's in all those side quests is amazing.

[-] the_rhyme_minister 2 points 7 months ago

That’s the one I was talking about! What did you do in the end? I stuck with space cops and regretted it until they gave me the reward. Big chunk of change.

I've recently started playing deep rock galactic and it's an amazing game.

[-] Wooki 6 points 7 months ago* (last edited 7 months ago)

Such a great game and community which I feel was enabled by the devs who has the forethought to make spamming a cheer button so enjoyable! End result: everyone cheers and the community gets just that little more happy.

Rock and stone!

I've been playing Cities Skylines a lot - got pulled back in with all the talk about the new one - and also Going Under.

Going Under is one of those games I bought a while ago because it seemed fun, played for a bit, got my ass kicked more than what I was used to with roguelites and stopped for a while. I started playing it again recently and think it finally made sense to me. Looking back, I probably wasn't paying much attention to the game the first time I tried it because I didn't understand there was an indication for weapon damage on different weapons - which made weapon choice feel random - and I also didn't understand how the mentor system worked - which is a big part of the strategy of the game. I've been having a lot of fun with it now, though.

[-] [email protected] 6 points 7 months ago

Borderlands. Always thought it was an arcade/retro shooter, turns out it's an rpg. It was exactly what I was looking for. Although I don't really understand why some of my shots miss

Noita, kind of. It's daunting knowing how much there's to the game and I seldomly get past the first level

Metro Last Light, Lies of P and RDR2. Mid, fast and slow paced games lol.

[-] [email protected] 6 points 7 months ago

Got Hardspace: Shipbreaker on sale the other day on Steam and been pleasantly surprised with it. Sometimes I'll blow the ship up for giggles and restart.

[-] caseofthematts 3 points 7 months ago

I also just got it on sale. I told a friend my dream game was a sim where you scrap and dismantle different Star Wars ships and vessels - they pointed me towards this game right during the sale. It's been a lot of fun!

[-] [email protected] 5 points 7 months ago* (last edited 7 months ago)

I've always been a PC gamer but I just got a retroid pocket 3 plus so I've fallen down the rabbit hole of old console games that I never played. I'm having tons of fun just building a rom collection and seeing what this thing can do. Best $150 I've spent this year, hands down.

Dynamite cop on the Dreamcast is awesome, soulcalibur is possibly the most enjoyable fighter I've ever tried, and all the Mario karts are great stupid fun. I really need to rebind my controls though, Mario kart is killing my thumb lol.

There's also some great android games that are just so cool when played on the TV with a controller like Streets of Rage 4 and TMNT Shredders revenge.

Playing Starfield. I love exploring and I love the atmosphere. The least buggy launch I've seen from Bethesda. It's great.

I wanna get back into AC6 and try my hand at pvp but every time I try I get nervous and chicken out. If anyone knows of a place for noobs to hangout, chat, and learn the game please let me know.

[-] [email protected] 5 points 7 months ago

Cyberpunk baby!!! Spent 100 hours before the update, time to spent 100+ more again with the new content!!

[-] [email protected] 5 points 7 months ago

Baldurs Gate 3 was released on Friday on Mac. I played the preview and some hours on parallels and am glad now I can play natively now.

My problem is, this world is to big. I like role playing my character, even if it is not optimal. I read every dialogue and think: “what would Hsslek (my Githyanki Dragonborn Wizard) do?”

The great thing is, after around 50 hours I now have a picture of my character. A curious mind, not always fitting into Githyanki society, but counting on the Githyanki Warrior who shares his fate and is becoming his lover.

[-] Spacecraft 4 points 7 months ago

Just switched from starfield back to cyberpunk for the 2.0 update. It’s consuming my life again. When I finish the dlc I’ll switch back to starfield and let that consume my life.

[-] fishy195 3 points 7 months ago

Same here dude haha. Starfield was fun, but man has Night City just sucked me back in. I love Cyberpunk so much. I am looking forward to going back to Starfield at some point, it is a great chill out and vibe kinda game.

I just finished playing the System Shock Remaster yesterday night after ~22 hours. I could still do everything from memory pretty much, and it remains an amazing game to this day, especially with the slick fresh paintcoat from the remaster.

Now I'm exploring Shadow Gambit a bit. Always loved the Commandoes games, and this is the third - and sadly final - Mimimi game that copies the gameplay verbatim. And from the little I've played so far, it's fantastic. Having actual supernatural characters fits the abilities really well, and the voicework is done tremendously well, too.

May you put the last part into a spoiler tag? Thank you.
The syntax is

No line embedded spoiler currently supported for now, unfortunately.

Weird, because that's what I used and it shows as blocked for me.

Edit: I just deleted that line.

About 50 hours into Starfield, wrapping up the pirate and corpo questlines, enjoying it quite a bit, but there are issues that I'd love to mod out eventually.

Finally played the Tomb Raider reboot trilogy, probably almost halfway through the first one. A pretty good Uncharted-like experience with a bit more of a serious
tone, but I have to say, it's pretty good!

[-] thorcik 3 points 7 months ago

Finally got 2077 running on Linux, now waiting for Phantom Liberty and CET update to get all my mods working ;) Need to build on those 500 hours.

Also, I started Greedfall. Lots of running around but so far it's solid.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 7 months ago

Oh man, I had such a great time with Greedfall a couple of years ago. It has a lot of jank, but you can see the heart beneath it all and I really enjoyed the world building. The fact they consulted with linguists for their invented language and created a custom accent they made sure all the VAs for natives use was a great touch.

It's not a AAA game, but if you take it for what it is you can have a great time. I'm really looking forward to the sequel.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 7 months ago

I just finished rift apart. Definitely my fave games in the series after the original trilogy. I think it might be the best looking game I ever played and the dimension swapping is seriously impressive.

I'm currently on Hogwarts Legacy. About 7 hours in and it's not too bad. More RPG elements and a bigger world than expected. Also looks amazing but I can't make too much of an opinion on it just yet.

Playing a buncha old-but-gold games:

I was never one for Skyrim, the jank was just too much to get immersed and the graphics too low end to be impressed. 450 mods later, I‘m fully immersed and impressed (runs better (fact) and looks better (subjective) than Starfield now IMO) and playing the heck out of it.

On the go, Hollow Knight has at last pulled me in on Switch. Finally finding the dash and wall climb abilities made the game a blast. Mario 3D World helps to counterweight Hollow Knight‘s melancholy.

I just finished Chants of Sennaar. It's a puzzle game that has you deducing out glyphic languages from context to find solutions, and it's super satisfying.

Currently playing Yakuza Kiwami. Just 100% 0 and moving onto completing the entire series.

[-] caseofthematts 3 points 7 months ago

My only suggestion would be to take your time and take breaks between them to play other games. They're great, but they're all very similar. An easy recipe for burnout.

still going on with Path of Exile

[-] [email protected] 2 points 7 months ago

For me, it's been Last Epoch which is an ARPG. It's been doing a fantastic job of scratching the itch that Diablo 4 just failed to do.

I finally made it past the campaign and am in the endgame (as far as I understand), and I've had a good time trying to come up and play with various builds on my Runemaster character!

Also, American Truck Simulator for when I just want to turn my brain off and relax.

[-] [email protected] 2 points 7 months ago* (last edited 7 months ago)

Spread thing due to work, but the wife and I are still doing the weekly tower for Minecraft Dungeons, and then playing Minecraft Java with the family. I need to find a better way to maintain 4 different computers with different OS's with our mods though.
Also finally going at a snail's pace at Baldur's Gate 3 due to time constraints.

Also got party animals, it's pretty fun with 4 player local matches. Kind of a pain to set up currently but in small sprints it is fine.

[-] moldyringwald 2 points 7 months ago

I've been putting some serious hours into No Man's Sky the last few weeks. Lately I've been getting pretty hardcore about F-Zero 99 as well
