Witcher 3. No idea what's going on, but I keep plugging away. Next month is Ghosts of Tsushima so that's my PS4 being used again.

DCS, several times per week online with my group or working my way through one of Reflected's campaigns.

Project Hospital

Ultimate Admiral: Age of Sail

Company of Heroes (Europe at War Mod)

Was heavily into Mount & Blade Bannerlord, but performance issues kind of led me to shelve it for a while.

About to start playing DCS and IL2, since I finally got a VR headset. Wish I could afford a P6, but not on my income.

I just beat Jedi: Fallen Order. That game was absolutely monstrous to beat. the story was great, but man Story Mode was too easy and Jedi Knight just kicked my butt ever where, like an entire evening to just beat Trilla (each time).

Looking forward to Iron Wolf and a few other VR games. I prefer Star Wars, but really excited about Star Trek Bridge Crew.

As I'm a Mission Observer in the Civil Air Patrol, I'm currently virtually flying a Cessna 172 w/G1000 in XPlane. I typically take off from KECG and practice search patterns using FlyQ on my IPad linked to XPlane.

I keep all my flight sims updated,I just can't get into playing them right now. I wish it was not so. I'd even reduced my BoX MP time to mouse/keyboard. I realise my man card is in danger of being revoked.

Since i'm running out of time, if anyone has any recommendations from that list, it's greatly appreciated smile



@Vaderini, I don't know all of those games but here's a few thoughts:

I've got Abzu on PC and its a beautiful underwater game, kind of fantasy but with real fish types and seems to be a mostly experiential Zen kind of game. I enjoy it for the atmosphere and relaxation.

I only played a little ICO on PS3 and enjoyed what I played of it but I think its a game that takes some time.

Shadow of the Colossus I played some of on PS3 but would like to get the PS4 remaster. Its a cool game though fighting monolithic bosses to save a princess in a stark but atmospheric world.

I played quite a bit of Beyond 2 Souls on PS3 and enjoyed it. Narrative heavy and interesting, spooky adventure.

As a fan of Mafia 1 and to a lesser degree 2, I'd stay away from 3 though I've not played it. To me what they did to Mafia 3 is not in keeping with the spirit of the first two.

Deadly Premonition I have on PC and have played a little. Its a quirky, interesting, Twin Peaks-esk game. Folks seem to view it as a little gem but it has its quirks and the PC version needs some user made fixes so its likely an experience that would take some patience.






I think I'm close to completing my epic five year play through of Mad Max which is a very good, solid game that deserves an even better sequel.

I'm currently playing Jedi Fallen Order and I'm really enjoying it. The game definitely has some significant bugs and glitches at times which can get frustrating but over all I'm enjoying it and its a solid game. Please don't post spoilers. I only recently finished my second encounter with
the Second Sister and finished Miktrull's tomb
.

Still working through my first play through of Prey.

I'm trying to get further along on Horizon Zero Dawn.

I finished God of War and enjoyed the story and combat for the most part very much. I don't think I have it in me however to try and beat these pesky Valkeries. I would like to know what happens when you do though.

I finished a third play through of Uncharted 1-3 earlier this year. I'd like to start a second play through of Uncharted 4.

I'd like to eventually play The Order: 1886 for my third time soon. A very good game that absolutely deserves a sequel. Has one of my favorite video game characters in thirty years of gaming. Outstanding thing they created there.

The thing I'm really looking forward to after years of anticipation is Ghosts of Tsushima. That comes out finally next month and I hope it proves to be a stellar game and story and experience. Though I probably ultimately will not, I may play around with their Japanese only voice overs and black and white mode. I'm really excited to see this game.

I just wish they redid the engine and controls for TIE FIghter and that would be amazing. Not sure how EA is going to be. Jedi was good, but Battlefront...I wasted money on. Guess it has improved, but I haven't bothered to try it.

Thank you! Had dinner at a new Pho place, the chief is new from Vietnam and scratch makes it. So much better than the powder stuff other restaurant usually make. He showed me how he does it and it simmers over night.

Until like two or three weeks ago I played a lot of World of Tanks.
Since then I played the alpha of Ultimate Admirals: Dreadnoughts. - fairly promising game, though they still have some balance troubles from one patch to the next.

Just yesterday i started playing Elite:Dangerous again, after more than a year of pause. Made some adjustments to the blueprints of the Colonia engineers, which are nowadays ahead in how far you can upgrade certain items. Then I boarded my (t)rusty AspX and set out to a (not exactly straight and fast) trip to SagA*, and then back to the bubble.

Are you referring to the overall plot of the story? I felt the same way when I first started playing the game but the more I read about the lore of the Witcher universe the more it eventually made sense to me.

Yup, same here. At first I thought it was just my reflexes perhaps not being up to snuff anymore but then I read stuff online and it seems MANY players found the game difficult. What did you think of that unexpected appearance of you know who at the underwater facility? wink

Some big changes to ED within the past year. Fleet Carriers is the major one while the sell value of most minerals that you can extract from deep core mining have all been significantly reduced. The happy days of raking up easy money are mostly over.

Elite Dangerous has been my go-to space sim over the years although recently it's been neglected by myself.

Star Citizen made an interesting side-show for a while and others that I tried have failed to grab me,like the X series and the lesser known stuff like Helium Rain and Rogue System (now abandoned).

I'm interested in the new SW game but I need to see what it's going to be before spending any money.

When I first bought Elite Dangerous I was curious to learn about the developer (Frontier) and I found out that they are based in Cambridge Technology Park which is associated with the University of Cambridge.


I just KNEW the game was made by very smart people! biggrin
