    Started playing Hollow Knight for the first time last night.

    Maybe they're waiting for me to finish it before they announce the release date for the sequel.

    Trying to play Starfield but the game is just annoying me. Its running crap on my PC even on low settings and everything just looks grey. Dont think im going to stick with it. Loading screens all over the place and if I have to look at that ship taking off and landing one more time ..Mission system is annoying me as well, maybe im just in a bad mood :)

    I'll give it another crack over Christmas, need to get in the right mood for it.



  • Registered Users Posts: 6,616 ✭✭✭Glebee


    Actually stuck with Starfield after and am starting to get into it more and more, ok it has its flaws but its definitely growing on me, will stick with it definitely.

    there are so many wonderful games in the world and I'm stuck in dota 2 my whole life and wow, how to get out of this circle.

    Got amiga forever emulation software recently and playing Chaos Engine, absolutely brilliant game back when I played it originally and still brilliant today. Jesus but the Amiga had some great, highly playable games that you don't seem to get on the PC. Available through steam for PC, highly recommended.

    Are there dedicated steam deck forums/threads? I'm looking for some game recommendations of the pick up and enjoy for 15m variety

    After finishing up with Starfield its back to Baldurs Gate 3 for me. Had just started Act 3 when I got sidetracked so will stick with it now to completion.

    Everyones gone to the rapture: Been meaning to get to this for a very long time and by the ending I wished I had gone to the rapture as well. Looks lovely with a beautiful soundtrack but a complete walking simulator and I have no idea what story was about.

    Finally finished Portal 1 (thanks to santa depositing a steam deck) and now started on Portal 2. Absolute cracking series

    Warhammar rogue trader, I'm really enjoying it.



  • Registered Users Posts: 6,616 ✭✭✭Glebee


    Would not be a massive Harry Potter fan but after a slow start I am really enjoying Hogwarts Legacy. They really have done a fantastic job with the source material and if your anyway into HP it must be absolutely fantastic.

    Equipped with a powerful new PC and what game is taking all my time only WOW classic 😁 , Season Of Discovery is sooooo good.



  • Registered Users Posts: 6,616 ✭✭✭Glebee


    Submerged: Hidden Depths - Alright game, nothing really to it. You don't really have to do anything excerpt travel around the game world on foot and by boat. Puzzles are not difficult. easy relaxing game. 7/10



  • Registered Users Posts: 6,616 ✭✭✭Glebee


    Sea of Stars: fantastic little game on game pass. Only stated it yesterday and it has me completely gripped. Well worth checking out.



  • Moderators, Computer Games Moderators Posts: 14,692 Mod ✭✭✭✭Dcully


    Eh so i started to play Palworld and yeah its insanely addictive but very very good.



  • Registered Users Posts: 5,572 ✭✭✭EoinHef


    Might wanna be careful, I hear the Pokeman fanatics are not happy it resembles their favourite franchise🤣



  • Moderators, Computer Games Moderators Posts: 14,692 Mod ✭✭✭✭Dcully


    Ive moved on to Enshrouded, similar to a point but more RPG and exploration focused and an even better experience imho.

    How have you enjoyed it a few days in? I’m on the fence with it for the steam deck



  • Moderators, Computer Games Moderators Posts: 14,692 Mod ✭✭✭✭Dcully


    Its really good to be honest, its like Valheim and Skyrim got together.

    It wasnt on my radar at all until a few streamers i watch were playing it and i knew i would enjoy it despite not being a huge fan of survival games but this hits different.

    Proper RPG and exploration vibes , im really enjoying it.



  • Registered Users Posts: 6,616 ✭✭✭Glebee


    Gears of War 5: more of the same really, open world vibe, mediocre. If you liked the others youll like this.



  • Registered Users Posts: 6,616 ✭✭✭Glebee


    Finished up with Gears 5 today, after a sort of mediocre game I really enjoyed the over the top action ending levels. Installed Lie of Pi, got to first boss, died, uninstalled. My god I hate souls like games. Just can't handle any of them. Love to give Elden Ring a go but know I'll probably hate it.

    Jan/Feb for me is somewhat of a golden period.

    I fully intended to get absorbed in WOW classic season of discovery phase 2 but some top tier games took me away.

    Enshrouded early access with a tonne of content took a lot of my time but then Helldivers 2 and more recent Deep Rock Galactic Survivor are taking all my gaming time but well deserved as i feel both are approaching masterpiece status.

    Sadly Helldivers 2 is suffering from its own success as its really hard to get a multiplayer game in with the broken matchmaking and server overloads but what an incredible game.

    In few days time another incredible game will have its 1.0 launch, Last Epoch imho is the best arpg out there.

    Also played a small bit of skull and bones which to my surprise is enjoyable ,incredibly chilled game for someone looking for some relaxing gaming.



  • Registered Users Posts: 6,616 ✭✭✭Glebee


    Think I might dip back into Last Epoch, have not played in a long time, has much changed with the full release?



  • Moderators, Computer Games Moderators Posts: 14,692 Mod ✭✭✭✭Dcully


    Massive amount of changes, complete graphics overhaul but so much more.

    Vid expains more, its just a brilliant arpg but servers are getting hammered 200K on regularly now.





  • Registered Users Posts: 6,616 ✭✭✭Glebee


    Playing a new character in Last Epoch and really was enjoying it until I hit a boss battle that killed the game for me in beta as well. Just can't get past a certain boss battle no matter what I do.

    Currently playing the 5.0 Update of the Old World Blues mod for HOI4, an amazingly done mod that keeps getting better.
