Still playing mostly Skyrim. I bought a fancy gaming PC and bought Skyrim for it and have fancy graphics. Send help.

I really like the whole look of the game, it seems to exude a sort of Lego vibe.

And yeah, that windmill was pretty awesome.

Got the job done!

Note: the machine doesn't have to be undamaged at the end, as long as the objectives are met.

I thought the guys who just charged right into it were kind of, well, pathetic.

Anyway, reminded me of the Persian army in Reign. I ought to finish that series some time.

And now I've got hooked on Darkest Dungeon. Its a sorta roguelikelike, where you crawl through a bunch of dungeons with a small party and mostly get killed. It's still in Early Access, so there're still content to add and balance issues to fix, but it's totally playable and even relatively polished. Would recommend it, though it might be better to wait for the full release.

I backed this game on Kickstarter. 8)-smf Most of the games I've backed over the last few years, I wish I could get a refund on. Darkest Dungeon, I wish I'd put more money into that. Maybe a grand or so.

I think the only thing I've backed on Kickstarter is Torment: Tides of Numenera. I loved Planescape, so I'm hoping this does the name justice. Probably won't be out for ages, though

For the record, the Mass Effects were entertaining in a Biowarey kind of way, but I found Dragon Age Origins unspeakably dull.

Yeah, it's definitively a very boring game in the start. I found that it got better once you got to the later points where you could goof off, though.

I dunno, I found the combat predictable and drawn-out throughout the game, and the characters insufficiently entertaining for me to want to slog through it. I was about 2/3 through the game stuck in some endless dwarf caves, when realized I wasn't actually enjoying it, and said fuck it.
