Finished through the main story of We Happy Few. For a game that caught some deserved flak early on, the story arcs aren't too bad. I'm not a huge fan of the combat, but that's okay; I'm prone to sneaky stuff and choking out bad guys.

I've been playing Torment: Tides of Numenera these past few weeks, delving into the Ninth World and experimenting with an abstracted version of the Cypher System in video game form. It's a pretty dialogue heavy game, focusing more on the story than the action, and I'm pretty far ahead.

Have to get back to it to finally finish the game, but recently got sidetracked with Shadowrun Returns, which I hadn't played in ages and don't recall if I ever finished or not (I tend to get sidetracked with video games a lot). I just felt the Shadowrun itch and couldn't resist. Already have a Mage/Shaman with high skill in Spellcasting and Conjuring, and also median Spirit Summoning skills as well in just like two days (they just hand out Karma like candy in that game :D ).

Just started to play Kingdom Come: Deliverance. I must admit that it was quite a surprise for me to see that it's a very cool game actually.

It's a great medieval simulation game: It takes place in Bohemia after the death of Charles IV and you are playing as a blacksmith's boy – Henry of Skalitz. You are simply trying to survive in a dark war atmosphere. The only problem is it's crawling with bugs and glitches but still, it doesn't spoil the awesome story.

It's both fun and entertaining for me: I wasn't expecting to learn so much about Medieval history and the European culture. Thanks to my Montenegrin passport I have traveled to the Czech Republic multiple times in the past but I must say that the game taught me more about the Bohemian history than my travels. If you are a sucker for medieval simulations for me you should definitely play this game.

Been playing Skyrim again with a Multiplayer mod, which whilst pretty buggy, is quite fun.
You have to sync your quests carefully with other people you want to play with though and even then it occasionally has strange behaviour.

Overall though, it's pretty amazing work for a Fan made Mod.

I just started playing Death Stranding over the weekend and I'm loving it.  Between the almost zen-like hiking and delivering of packages and the terrifying survival parts vs the BTs it's a game I didn't know I wanted.  It's definitely not for everyone though.

I'm also playing Rune Factory 4 on my Switch when I need to let the adrenaline settle after a session of Daemon X Machina.

I got Streets Of Rage 4 a few days ago. And I've been enjoying it. It's a nice little button masher.

I bought The Takeover for Nintendo Switch. It's a semi-3d brawler in the vein of Streets Of Rage. But the moves you can pull off are spectacular.

It has more special moves and variety than Streets Of Rage 4. But I like both games for their own reasons. And they are a blast to play.

Lately mostly playing Age of Empires 2 Definitive edition.
An update of the old classic from years ago.
Very well done and enjoying it a lot.

Tharsis: About an ill-fated mission to Mars and the crews attempts to just survive the remaining weeks to arrival as things go wrong, sometimes lots of things.
An indie game thats pretty off the beaten track as its a dice roller "express" game. Roll the dice to apply to problems, press your luck to try and get a better roll. And the allotment of dice to each crew will diminish as used.
You select from a roster of crew with different perks like you can apply a roll of 5 or better to repairing the ships hull one point. Or a roll of 5 or better could be used to give all crew in the section +1 dice.
Another quirk is that the crew can accumulate stress that can, and oh so very much will, cause them to make very poor suggestions during periodic meetings. And while I am not positive. I am pretty darn sure that higher stress causes your rolls to start skewing to bad results.
The other surprise is that its a rather strategic game and you really do have to plan and think things through to mitigate disasters.

After alot of effort and getting a handle on the system I actually beat it on Hard difficulty and got the good ending. Well as good as the ending gets... ahem.

These days I'm playing Fistful of Frags, a free western themed arena shooter. I'm also getting a lot of mileage out of the old Impression city building games like Caesar, Pharaoh, and Zeus.
