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.

I finished Super Robot Wars V on PS4, very enjoyable, would recommend. I may replay it in Game + at some point, there are branching storylines so it would not be the exact same game.

I bought a Nintendo Switch to play the new Advance Wars game on, then Nintendo put an indefinite hold on the release due to the war in the Ukraine. :(

So now I'm playing The Outer Worlds on the switch. For $20, the price was right, and I am enjoying the game. That said, playing the game on any other system would be a big graphical upgrade. The textures on the Switch are not good, and there are no extra shaders or anything. Still, I'm enjoying the game, and would recommend it.

Definitely worth $20 although I didn't really enjoy the entire game because of the issues with the ending. My favorite part of the game was Stellar Bay and it's missions.

All my computer game time is in Incest Simulator... I mean, Crusader Kings 3. Maybe one of the best roleplaying sandboxes there is. Yes, you run a domain, but it's about your ruler and his dynasty. How you stay in power over the generations.

(Re)made the ancient Bactrian Empire from a custom Zoroastrian/Tajik start. It's not the best to start on divine marriage that early with a custom character because the game has no real ancestors for your custom characters, so the genetics are very few (and the offspring are more likely to get Inbred). You pretty much stack the deck for Inbred when you marry your twin children to each other that early in the game. (Can't wait for the Game of Thrones mod for CK3!)

Just waiting on the Iberia flavor pack next... then I'll do the Reconquista game again. I've already done it with Asturias and with the Jimenas (Urraca of Leon), but kicking the Moors out of Spain doesn't get old.

Still playing Warframe from time to time, but I have cut way.  Over a thousand hounds in and I still play a lot of Approaching Infinity (sci-fi rogue like.) 

Just picked up Solar Ash since it was on sale, don't know if I'm going to hate it or love it.

Started a new game in Kingdom Come: Deliverance after about 2-3 years of a break.   I'm busy autistically punching cows to power level some stats in skalitz before the real game starts. KO's some random villagers, etc.   Going to try getting high stats without lowering reputation in skalitz, and no killing like some of those really psychotic playthroughs do, like.. really.. maybe its bad that Henry would just punch cows for hours on end as a detour from helping his dad finish the sword, but Henry wouldn't just run around killing all the guards either, lol.

Spending a lot of time lately in Tom Clancy's The Division 2.

It's a looter shooter set in the United States after a biological weapon attack in NYC destroys the world, which is kind of funny in the time of the COVID plague.

The main play areas are Washington DC and Manhattan (or, the post apocalyptic ruins of those locations).

It's pretty woke, though. The heroic characters definitely have a quota. The main bad guy is a white Caucasian man. Many of the boss fights are against a diverse cast of mostly African Americans or Native Americans, with the occasional Latinx boss. Many of the peon enemies are white.

Having fun with an offensive shield build (using the named holster, Forge, to buff my shield, along with the exotic, Memento).

Did you just see the review on MandaloreGaming? I had forgotten about this game until I saw that review recently. I had the demo back in the day on my mac.
