    Really? I didn't know that, then in that case I take it all back. Still, wish Gamebryo was replaced with something better. Btw, what happened to Skyrim mod scene that made it so toxic?

    Well, like I said:
    "Full of primadonnas, giant egos, god complexes, blind fanboys (yes, there are blind fanboys of modders in the Skyrim modding scene), attention seekers, mod thieves/plagiarism, etc.".
    I can add more:
    Modders who don't share knowledge about modding, people who take over other people mods and get the credit for those mods even though they are only maintaining the mods (and not created them), people who dismiss anything other (way more knowledgeable) modders tell them, modders who think they are superior modders (and handwave other people's work, words and knowledge) because they managed to get a (small or big) fanbase but their mods are only cluttering interiors, etc.

    Spend way too many hours playing Mass Effect 1-2 now. Getting ready to jump into ME3 with my not so perfect perfect save tomorrow. I did not expect to like the games as much as i actually did but besides the shitty PC port and a lot of things that make radiant quests seem fun i actually loved the first 2 games.

    And getting the caine in ME2 did not make it any worse :P

    Started a new Nuzloke run in Pokemon Sun and Moon just for kicks. Picked the Black girl avatar but then I realized the first bag the girls get is styled as a Watermelon slice, now I feel like an asshole...

    Grabbed Battlefleet Gothic Armada on a whim. I like it. Wish it had gotten more support.

    Bought Dead Cells, maybe I'll eventually play it after beating Dishonored 2 and Wolfenstein.

    Finished Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin.

    A weird title. Great game, all in all, but weaker than the first in so many aspects - geography, level design, lore, NPCs, boss fights, enemy design...pretty much everything was weaker. Not bad, far from it (though there were some shitty parts), but worse than DS1. Has some improvements and great moments here and there, but overall I felt that it was inferior to DS1 (that is without technical stuff, because DS2: SotFS is so well polished and optimized that it only accentuates how shitty DS1 port actually is).
    I believe @Arnust mentioned that it has higher lows and lower highs than DS1, and I guess that sums it up nicely.
    That all being said, I enjoyed it a lot. It is maybe a bit too long for my taste, but I didn't mind.

    I was somewhat puzzled by the huge hate this game received, but then I looked at videos of vanilla DS2 and man was that a piece of turd. I get why people went so upset over it.
    On the other hand, heard that vanilla was made in 9 months, so it's no wonder.



    Now, waiting for DS3 Deluxe to go on sale because man I got so hoooooked

    Funny because Dark Souls 2 was the only one I played. Guess I fucked up.

    If it's vanilla, I feel sorry for you mate. If it's SotFS, not a big deal.
    You should play Dark Souls (with DLCs if you're on console) because that thing is a masterpiece. It's my favorite game, sharing the first place along with Fallout and Planescape: Torment. I'm going to shoot every fucker who plays it (and the other two) and says games cannot be art.

    I've fixed my laptop (read: attached a mouse and keyboard), so in addition to Age of Decadence (I finally passed the first skill check for the assassin character!), I'm playing some Battle for Wesnoth, Children of a Death Earth, Darkest Dungeon, Doom Rogue-Like, Europa Barbarorum 2, Expeditions Viking, Halloween Flop, Invisible Inc, Jagged Alliance 2, Open Xcom Area 51 or OG with No Psionics and a few integrated mods, Shadow Watch (with plenty of spy, cyberpunk, and futuristic music playing in the background) and Underrail. I'm also in between jobs and have a writer's bloc, so I got time to play 'em all.

    Playing Chrono Trigger on the DS. Been liking it so far, got stuck for a while on Prehistoric times because I wasn't supposed to be there yet. JRPGs are the perfect traffic Jam games.

    Yakuza 4 converted me to the series so now all of the games are on my list. The game was so good I was tempted to do a review until crippling depression kicked in.

    Started playing the Tell Tale Batman game and weirdly enough I am digging it if I ignore the obvious "Choices!" lie at the beginning and I am getting worried. Does it go full Tell tale stupid after the second episode? Should I brace myself for a sequence were characters just start screaming at each other for no reason to create conflict?

    I just started playing Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice not too long ago. I'm only about 30 minutes into the game, so I can only really talk about what I've seen so far. So far I'm enjoying it.

    The story, from what I can tell is about a girl with some extreme schizophrenia going on a journey to Hell to bring back a loved one. I don't know if it's based on folktale or anything. Senua only has had one, maybe two lines of dialogue (actual talking); I think there's one with a severed head she's bringing around, and another one where she's trying to bargain with a dark force. She's fuckin' nuts.

    Gameplay so far has been something like a walking simulator, with puzzles and the occasional combat. The only puzzles I've done are finding shapes and props which line up to match the runes on a locked gate, pretty time consuming if you are dumb like me. The first one took me about 6-8 minutes to figure out how I was supposed to solve it. Combat is fairly simple, different buttons for different moves, blocking, dodging kicking, light/heavy swings. Enemies will teleport once you think you've dealt the finishing blow, until they're dead for real, so always be on your guard.

    Also, there are repercussions for dying. Die enough times, you lose and start over FROM THE BEGINNING. The game makes sure to explain this clearly after your first death.

    While way behind the times, I only JUST now found out Streetfighter V isn't coming to Xbox One.

    BOO!
