    Just bought Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem and played for an hour or so. Pretty good so far if ARPGs are your thing. Loads of customisation and the skill tree is massive. Combat is also smooth and fluid which is the main thing with these types of games, as well as interesting gear/builds.

    Haha, I bought it too despite hearing that it's broken as shit. Just too much of a sucker for these types of games. Only had time to play it for a couple hours so far but it looks great and the combat feels super smooth. Just wish it gave me more skills to play around with...

    Yeah I heard they had a lot of server issues to begin with. But i waited a few days and I’ve not had any issues so far. I’m playing a wizard build at the minute, but I always play spell casters so I might change it up and play an archer or something. Feeling kinda overwhelmed at the minute though with all the different stats and the passive skill tree and stuff. Lot of information to absorb.

    There are more than just server issues. A lot of skills and passives don't do what they're supposed to. Spell damage scaling is completely ineffectual from what I hear. Some passives do nothing at all, some do... well, I hear there's one passive that is supposed to increase your damage output by 0.5x, that is increasing it by 50x.

    Can't play it right now anyway because my headphone cable broke so I guess I'm holding out for patches.

    Definitely worth a shot if you’re a fan of the movies. Captures the atmosphere perfectly. Little rough around the edges and tough to find matches these days except on the weekend but I’ve put a lot of time in and have had a blast.

    I fuck around in Minecraft when I have some free time and this is my abode now. I reconstructed Prague's Winternitz Villa by Adolf Loos and set furnished the interior a little. Might post some pics from outside but I have to go to work in a bit so maybe in the evening.

    I mean, it's hard to believe that the Buildings of Adolf Loos do not come from Minecraft originally...

    This is Villa Winternitz:

    i can’t stress how fucking bowled over i was by the graphics of that game when it came out lol. that part during the battle between the gardens where you’re running left and all this insane shit is happening in the background, that was basically proto-avengers assemble or the battle of the bastards

    .... except for the fact that "avengers assemble" has been around for way longer than any FF game.

    i was referring to the movie's action scenes specifically, the GoT comparison is better anyway though. also probably children of men from what i remember

    No, but I play a ton of Dead by Daylight. It's a similar concept, but supposedly with better execution.

    Started playing Cities Skylines, waited too long to get into this. Still working out all the features but the civic engineering aspect is really delightful. I accidentally flooded three times! So exciting.

    The old man has taken a liking to the game too. So fucking painful watching him try to play though. He's really not a gamer, nor much of a civic planner apparently... I've literally bit my fist a few times.
