What video games are you playing currently? by konomo | tildeverse BBJ

I'm fascinated by SCP: Containment Breach (The game is extremely frustrating at parts, even on Easy difficulty)
A month ago I have looked into Minetest (especially the Hades game mode, which plays on a volcanic planet)

What are you playing?

I'm veeeeery sloooowly working through Knights of the Old Republic. It's ancient, but I'm enjoying it. It helps that the difficulty isn't too high (I'm a casual player at best and my gamer reflexes... aren't, lol.)

Honestly, the only reason I'm playing it now is that the two KOTOR games were on sale and nostalgia hit hard :D I used to have a poster of KOTOR II as a kid (it came with a gaming mag), but never actually got to play it.

At least now I don't have to care about the hardware requirements XD

All the Old Republic games were great, even the MMO. I played KOTOR2 when
it was released, and while the story and characters were pretty involving
the game itself was plagued by crash bugs (probably long fixed).

As for myself, I've been playing Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate. Lots
of fun, but weird after coming off of Monster Hunter World as it's missing
many of the innovations of that game.

Those bugs were never fixed, i'm sad to say. way way back in the day a team came
together to try and fix these bugs and restore content back into the game (there
was a ton of content in the game files that was ready to be played, but not
"linked" into the rest of the game). But at some point there was some huge drama
and accusations and it all ended. i don't know if anything else happened after
that...

As for playing... My gaming pc is 10 years old, so it's mostly stuff that still
runs on it nicely, when i feel like a pc game.

Outside of that, i have a lot of emulators on the rpi

Everyone should try factorio!

Just started playing .hack//fragment on the netslum server. I played the .hack// games as a kid and was always bummed that the 'mmo' version was never released in the west. I was lamenting the fact that Bandai Namco was probably never going to let Cyber Connect 2 make another .hack game to some friends and decided to see if there was any progress on an english patch/ fan server. The game is super crusty, but it scratches a massive nostalgia itch for sure.

I bought a Retroid Pocket 2 this year for bus rides to/from work so I've been playing The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time again. I love this game,theres just some sort of weird charm about it that i cant put my finger on!

>8 jwinnie @ 2021/02/02 19:58

I'm playing ULTRAKILL right now -- it's an amazing game! It's like classic DOOM but faster, bloodier and more creative... it's probably the most fun I've had playing a first-person shooter game so far. The demo is free on itch.io, and it works natively on Linux, so I would definitely recommend it!

>9 rmgr @ 2021/02/02 23:13

That ticks basically all of my boxes. I'm going to have to pick that up!

>10 teaboo @ 2021/02/03 20:30

I grabbed this game because of this post. The game feels like an alternate answer to the problem Doom 2016 tried to solve. Compared to the glory kill system in Doom 2016, the blood system in ULTRAKILL feels more connected to the rest of the gameplay. The movement feels natural and help to close the distance to position for a kill without holding your hand. The blood mechanic feels like something that could be added to Brutal Doom and feel at home.

I'm playing lots of modded minecraft with my friends, and I also started playing pokemon go again

Are you playing a modpack, or just mods you and your friends selected?

>13 karx @ 2021/02/06 21:55

>>12

It's a modpack that my friend made, although I could post the link here if you guys want it.

I am currently playing Hollow Knight. It's a pretty intense platformer (for me). Loving it.

>15 anonymous @ 2021/02/08 00:03

i really need to finish Hollow Knight. I lost a bunch of money on a stupid death and ragequit and never returned.

Recently bought the Crash Bandicoot remakes, so I've been playing them.
I think they did a pretty good job.
Even the parts the frustrated me when I was younger, still frustrate me
now.

>17 architect @ 2021/02/09 09:29

I'm really into Sea of Thieves. It's sort of like an MMO, where you sail
around collecting treasue and fighting skeletons, and you can go attack 
someone else on the server to take their treasure, and if you decide to mind 
your own buisiness, you need to be aware of your surroundings and make sure 
nobody's sneaking up on you to go all Jack Sparrow on ya while you're trying 
to sell your spoils.

Played best with friends so that you can sing sea shanties and have a 
swashbuckling time.

>18 hrnekbezucha @ 2021/02/13 16:07

not much of a gamer but i fired up some old doom wads again. this one is called ancient aliens. getting my ass kicked but it's nice.

>19 jeroanan @ 2021/02/13 20:24

I'm playing Kickle Cubicle for the NES. Turns out it's just as much fun now as it was 25+ years ago.

>20 zer0 @ 2021/02/16 01:11

Just finished Hitman 3 and now I don't know what to do with my life

Hitman 4?

Still show up occasionally in-world on an old space-shooter called Vendetta Online.

Pathfinder: Kingmaker went on sale a little while ago; and after a false start 
(why bother putting casters in the game, who need to rest up to replenish spells, 
if there's going to be a time limit?) I'm well into the prologue. Having
a good time, but makes me nostalgic for *actual* P&P play.

About a decade ago I was an active member of the local PFS, and had my own
group working its way through the actual P&P Kingmaker campaign. As these
things go, the group fell apart when one player decided that their specific
minimax build, and arguing about the rules it abuses to make it work, was
the only means by which s/he could have a good time.

>24 ben @ 2021/03/07 18:01

not really sure why but i pretty much stopped gaming since quarantine

the only thing i play nowadays is duck game or other couch co-op games with my partner

it's wonderful

>25 tomasino @ 2021/05/06 10:25

I dusted off Lord of the Rings Online. I joined as a pre-order back in the day and paid for the lifetime subscription up front. I stopped playing about 8 or 9 years ago and forgot about it until a friend picked it up recently. They've added so much new content it's ridiculous. And, since I had that lifetime jibby-jab, apparently I've been acquiring LOTRO points this whole time. I was able to log in, create a new character, bump it up to level 120 and buy literally everything in the in-game store with the point I'd acquired. Now I just need to remember how to play.

>26 dgy @ 2021/05/06 23:18

I've been trying to find a decent Civ clone and compromising on playing UnCiv on my phone. FreeCiv remains as terrible and unfun as i remember it

Oh yeah, Hollow Knight is super good. Probably one of my favourite games. But yeah, pretty hard.
I've never finished it, but I should probably get back to it sometime.

Also excited for the sequel coming out (hopefully) soon.

I'm currently playing XOnotic, just got into it recently.
It's a FOSS arena shooter (I think?) similar to Quake and stuff.
Pretty fun, even though I suck at it.

>29 prisonpotato @ 2021/05/20 19:36

>>28
That sounds sort of similar to Red Eclipse, have you tried it?

>30 campfire @ 2021/05/20 22:32

I don't play computer games since 2017 when my last good computer died.
In late 2017 I've bought a PS4 instead of building another computer, 
but I had no time to play it too much, the only game I've played
kind of often on it was For Honor.

In 2019 I've sold my PS4 since I was going abroad, and I've bought a 
N2DSXL and a PS Vita, for if I ever want to play something I could 
since the PS4 would be hard to carry on bags travelling and moving so much.

Unfortunately I didn't played on those too much as well, I don't know what 
happened, maybe I can't enjoy games anymore without thinking in everything 
else I need to do?
It's almost the same with movies and series, the only one I watch is 
The Expanse and The Mandalorian, any others and I start to feel guilty 
about my time.

>31 easeout @ 2021/05/22 00:04

I'm finishing up Resident Evil 7 before I give much conisderation to 8. I replayed Prey recently; I love the immersive sim genre and its history.

>32 rmgr @ 2021/05/23 12:19

I've started playing ARMA 3 again. They just released a Vietnam war DLC and it is fantastic!

>33 erin @ 2021/05/26 14:41

I think I've heard of that before, never played it though.
I've only gotten into Xonotic recently.
Red Eclipse looks cool though, I'll have to check it out!

>34 rmgr @ 2021/05/28 04:54

>>33
Xonotic is a lot of fun! In my region there's as small crew who are pretty active on Friday/Saturday nights which is nice!

>35 dgy @ 2021/05/31 23:48

Are you playing on the pungas server, perhaps?

>36 rmgr @ 2021/06/01 02:04

Nah I'm in Australia, it's generally on Xonotic Australia Overclocked Votable

Dota 2 :-)

>38 cata @ 2021/06/04 21:37

I keep coming back to Rocket League.
It's one that I can pick up and play for 15 minutes or 4 hours.
I can walk away from it for a day, or a month and come back with all the context I need!
I've got a good crew of friends that I play with which definitely adds to it!

>39 anonymous @ 2021/06/22 04:00

Currently playing Hue, it's a somewhat simple/short game, but I find it really fun!

I did get it for free on Epic Games instead of buying it though.

I did use to play Minecraft a lot, but I'm kinda bombarded with school right now, and my interest in the game is slowly decreasing (haven't gotten to try 1.17 yet though)

>40 anonymous @ 2021/06/22 08:23

Not playing anything :( Suggest me some good text based games, RPGs and stuff

That's awesome, I've actually just been checking out Vendetta Online myself! I remember first finding out about the game ages ago, but I didn't like the paid subscriptions. Recently I found out it's become free to play, and so I've been meaning to finally give it a real shot. I started out with the UIT and so far, it's been pretty great, though I'm a bit lost on where to start, with how much stuff there is to do and all.

>42 ben @ 2021/07/09 16:29

i picked up mass effect legendary edition and have been working my way through the series.
