Your newest games
« on: January 03, 2018, 04:10:00 PM »
I thought we could have a thread to say "Hey I just picked up this game".

I picked up a few from the Xmas sale and some money I got.
Bulletstorm (new version), really enjoyed the last one, this one has the option of Duke Nukem as a playable character, and steam achieves.
CoD MW4 Remastered.  Again .. an old game I enjoyed with some achievements etc
Serious Sam Bogus Detour.  It has Serious Sam in the title :P and achieves.
Omegaland.  This looks fun and was cheap
Plantera: same as above

Great idea Tim

Last game I bought was They Are Billions, which I am really enjoying.
It is an Early Access titles, only has a Survival mode at the moment. Basically a zombie apocalypse RTS which has a tower defense feeling as the enemies come in waves every so many days. The waves get more difficult so you have to balance your tech with expansion and military might.

Next on my list is XCOM2 DLC. Still hasn't come up for a reasonable price.

Picked up Persona 5 last week.  Pretty fun art-style, decent story, but it's wrapped up in one of the most grindy/linear JRPGs even compared to other JRPGs.  Roughly halfway done and I'm at 60 hours played (I've done little else this week).

Hmm I picked up War of the Chosen a month or so ago and blitzed through that.  Absolute tonne of fun and really improves the Xcom 2 experience.  At Christmas I was lucky to obtain a Switch along with Mario Odyssey, Mario vs Rabbids, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.  On top of that my parents got me Uncharted Lost Legacy so looking forward to playing that to.

And of course, I've still Witcher 3 to finish :D

Picked up Horizon Zero Dawn on PS4, quite enjoying ot so far though the exploration/quest balance could be improved a bit. Too many things to uncover on the map, not that many actually interesting.

Just picked up Civ VI (for $12! Thank you Humble Monthly!).
To be so civilized one must tell civil lies...

Was recently gifted The Vagrant. The boobs are facepalm worthy and the outfits are Ludicrous Level 11. But the art is fantastic and the gameplay is a boatload of fun. I'm enjoying the heck out of it. Gonna put this in the "Gems for under $5" category and recommend it to anyone who might enjoy a solid sidescrolling adventure/RPG.
