^^ Never finished it but, yeah, brilliant game. Got it on Steam and Switch. Keep meaning to return to it.

Back on Morrowind. There's a lot wrong with this game, especially the lengthy and awkward travelling, and some of the monsters - those damn birds! - but it really is so quirky and so bizarre that it's always entertaining. It's also hard. Playing it without exploiting some of the tricks in the game would make it quite slow and dull. But for all that, the pleasure of seeing new things, exploring new places and just generally enjoying the weird setting is great. If only you could ride a netch!

I bought a game called Grim Legends 3 - The Dark City, which was in a sale. It's one of those "hidden object" games which are apparently popular with older people, although there's a lot to do that doesn't involve finding hidden objects. I was expecting something a bit cheap, but it was a very slick game, with many puzzles that were generally slightly easy but challenging enough to be enjoyable. The story was all right, and the voice work perfectly acceptable.

Of course, it makes no sense that virtually every important building has a puzzle instead of a lock, and the heroine suffers from a condition obliging her to carry around random junk in the hope that it might be useful for something later on. Above all, the artwork was extremely good and it was very pleasant to look at. I might have a go at some more of these.

Not ashamed to admit to really enjoying the Classic World of Warcraft! Playing it on my son's computer, and finding the slowness of the action superior to the latest versions, especially instances. Only playing once a week at the moment, so it will take me ages to progress though the levels.

As an aside, there are some small free DLCs ('bags') in Divinity Original Sin 2 (customisation options and some gameplay fiddling).

I just downloaded Deadspace 1 and 2 from Steam. For some reason, Deadspace 3 isn't available.
Once you’ve played DS1 I’d seriously recommend watching the Dead Space: Downfall anime. It’s really great and has expanded the backstory of the Ishimura in such an interesting and comprehensive way that I wish there was a massive catalogue of DS material.

Also Dead Space: Aftermath is another animated film that is linked with one of the DS2 characters but I prefer Downfall.

I’m a huge fan of the Dead Space franchise and love the way it becomes totally Lovecraftian.

So I'm about ten hours into Dragon Quest XI S : Echoes of An Elusive Age Definitive Edition on Switch and enjoying it even more than the first time (and a bit) I played it. It feels like this is the way the game was always meant to be.

Dead Space is ****ing amazing. Even the Wii game - extraction - is fantastic.

Anyway I recently fixed my cousin's old PS4 and she let me have it cheap like. Anyway I've picked up Dragon age Inquisition, Abzu, and Far Cry 4 as well as Spider-Man. Absolutely loving Spidey, the story and combat is fantastic. Hope there's a sequel.

I just bought Mass Effect 1 and 2 from Steam.

I have heard so much about these games and I really want a good Sci-Fi experience. I haven’t had much experience with RPG games, though as I don’t have too much time on my hands. Still, let’s see.

I did start to play KOTOR and really enjoyed it, but I didn’t even get off the first planet.

I was just talking with someone about the Mass Effect trilogy the other day. I liked them a lot, particularly the second game.

Speaking of sci-fi RPGs, just a couple of days until The Outer Worlds comes out.

It's getting good reviews, too. I like that it's a comparatively short game (as in 30-ish hours). I've got more than enough long-ass games to deal with at the moment :LOL:

Speaking of which, alongside replaying DQXI on Switch, I've been dabbling in Pathfinder: Kingmaker. It doesn't do a very good job of explaining its systems, so I'm relying on the internet crutch to clarify some stuff, but I'm having a great time with it. The characters and story are excellent, the lore is wonderfully deep, and the whole thing looks gorgeous. I'd heard so much about its teething problems on release but - so far - I've had no problems with it at all.

We're also gearing up our co-op play-through of Divinity Original Sin 2, which has been sidelined for a while.

Yeah, I've heard 30-40 hours. But it also sounds like it has good replay value.

With more limited time than in the past, I think a longevity of that type is more of a pro than a con in this case.

Hope Pathfinder comes to PS4 (I think it's planned to).
