Currently alternating between Bomberman Tournament and AC New Leaf, just started up a new town.

Spent lots of time last night doing SRV mining in Elite Dangerous. Found a planet with lots of high grade metals and i have finally been able to drive in full speed between the ore nodes, despite controls being crap when using keys instead of an analogue controller (flightstick).

Yeah Factorio is a micro manager's wet dream come true. There's so much from a logistical perspective to deal with and the game gives you all of the tools you need to meet those extreme demands. It also has multiplayer which makes the game even more fun.


Aye, so I've heard.

I cant imagine doing multiplayer myself though. Here's everyone else being all organized, and then here's me just doing whatever and making a horrible tangled mess that only makes sense to me and nobody else...

Unless of course it's a group where EVERYONE is disorganized, and then that must get outright hilarious.

That sounds like my job in real life.

The World Ends With You.

Maybe I'll actually make some progress. If only the pin evolution system wasn't so terribly complicated. >.<

I am playing Wargroove, a game I'd been looking forward to for some time. It is exactly what I wanted. It's similar to Intelligent System's tactical games from the Wars and Fire Emblem series, balanced and fun, with the ability to support short or long form matches. It doesn't just take what made their good, but makes them better by implementing the sort of features that the community has been using in unofficial versions of their games for years.

It bears the hallmark of a Western PC developer, by being not terrible on PC - as much as I love Japanese developed games, they're goddamn awful at PC games. That, and it contains tons of modern additions. That means things like arbitrary resolution support and aspect ratios without acting like supporting more than one resolution in 2019 is some big deal, online and local hotseat multiplayer, competitive and cooperative play, custom map editors, custom campaign editors community uploaded content browsable within game, asynchronous multiplayer with Steam integration to allow notifications. And since it's on Nintendo Switch and Xbox One too, crossplay with those platforms, where I assume it has the same robust features.

I was disappointed when Intelligent Systems stopped making Wars games in favor of Fire Emblem, and then they started making the series really weird with anime waifu petting sequences and extraneous RPG elements like making all your soldiers marry each other. I wanted Tiny Metal to be good when that came out last year purporting to be the sort of game this turned out to be, but that was a train wreck. I'm just glad that this turned out to not only be good, but that it is surpassing my expectations right out of the gate.

Ugh, yes, I remember when the Wars games were swapped out for Fire Emblem. I loved the Wars games. I loathed Fire Emblem. Still do, always will. Bleh.

I'd considered getting Wargroove myself, but after so much exposure to the indie scene, my tastes in strategy games has changed dramatically. Heck, even as nice as the Wars games were, I probably wouldnt go back to them now.

But they still left quite the legacy and it's nice to see someone continuing it even if I'm not going to bother with it.

The World Ends With You. My progress is very slow, which is saying something, since I usually take a long time to play through games.

Done with Resi 2 (2019) for a while. Sub 2 on each scenario.
Over the 50% completionist mark for Yakuza Kiwami.
GF just bought the Nathan Drake collection - she's playing that, but I'll maybe try it this weekend. I played the first 3 more or less when they came out and not really since then.
