This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

As long as you can use the Wii controllers for Mario Kart 8, I'm fine with that.

Still be-bopping around with War Thunder and now that they've got tanks and combined arms a-going, I don't know if I'll ever see World of Tanks again.

And I've developed an unholy obsession over getting some fun wrestling games for my ancient PS2.  Really need to upgrade that platform one of these days...
I start from his boots and work my way up. It takes a good half a roll to encompass his jolly round belly alone. Soon, Father Christmas is completely wrapped in clingfilm. It is not quite so good as wrapping Roy but it is enjoyable nonetheless and is certainly a feather in my cap.

'Both Father Christmas and Roy Orbison are completely wrapped in clingfilm,' I say to Jetta.

I place Santa next to Roy and stand in between them. With some difficulty I wrap all three of us up together as best I can. We enjoy a quiet but satisfying yuletide until people from the social services come to release us.

God Bless us one and all.

Nice.  I remember getting that when it first came out.  It had a *battery*.  Amazing.

Figuring out what to do with the flute was a challenge in the pre-internet days!

Well, apparently there's a huge Steam sale going on.

I've decided to pick up Borderlands 2. Yeah, late to the party and all that, but I could use a FPS and this one seems to have a few RPG elements, and a sense of humor to boot.

Still under the "late to the party" header, I still want to check out TES V: Skyrim but between WoW and GW2 (which I get to play 3-4 hours a week, maybe, both combined) I have a hard time justifying to myself yet another fantasy CRPG.

And yet I almost broke down and picked up Banner Saga. The game looks gorgeous.

Anyone picked up anything worthwhile?

Sadly, my backlog is pretty much full from previous sales.

Banner Saga is made by good people, though the folks I know that were there moved to Roberts Space Industries (Star Citizen).

I did get Garden Warfare for the PC, since the Cutie likes it but hates console controllers.

Here's another one that caught my eye: Broforce. I think our own Imperator was the one who drew my attention to it.

I've picked up:
Age of Wonders 3 (Master of Magic + better graphics to my eyes)
Space hulk (the new one)
FTL (I've heard this is a brutal but fun game)
and Spore (it was cheap)

I was told by some friends that Spore was only worthwhile because I got it for $7.50, at a higher price it possibly wouldn't have been as worth it.  They of course paid "retail" so they are bitter, perhaps understandably, but  I won't know until I play it.

Playing the first area of Borderlands 2.

Holy shit, this is probably the closest we'll ever get to a Rifts CRPG. Loving it so far.

Right now, Age of Wonders III.

I like TBS usually, and loved AOW2 and others, but something's missing here. It's the same rules as the other games, but the battles just aren't fun...too much fiddly stuff going on, and too time consuming. I find the strategic map tough to read, too, very hard to tell enemy cities and stuff.

Eh, maybe it'll grow on me.

I also just picked up the Borderlands II GotY edition, with all the expansions. I found it very obnoxious that stuff for the DLC was in the main game (just, you know, useless unless you bought the DLC). But $10 for everything was too good to pass up, definitely will give the game a few more hours of gun-hunting fun.
