I've been on a big Stellaris kick of late. it's a massive 4x empire building game where you attempt to take over or destroy the galaxy, a little like the Civ games but grand sci fi instead.

tough game.. but very rewarding feeling when pulling off a nice shot/putt. I will say that putting and chipping around the greens is difficult, and sometimes it might feel like it's a little too much, the emphasis of being good around/on the green is spot on to 'real' golf.

If you like golf and understand all of the different factors that go into a shot, then you'll like this game.

Finally have a full release date for BG3, and lo and behold Divinity: Original Sin 2 is on sale. Spoiled myself. Anyone played? What should I expect?

Side note - One ending away from 100% completion on CP2077. Digging the Edgerunners additions/Easter eggs.

Just bought the gta trilogy remaster while it’s on sale. I know it has its problems but had to get it for the nostalgia alone. Only thing I noticed so far is the audio gets kinda muddy at times.

This looks like something I'd be interested in buying when it releases.


Here's your first look at Aliens: Dark Descent! Check out the first Aliens: Dark Descent gameplay trailer, announcing that the real-time tactical action game will launch on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, and PC on June 20, 2023. Get a look at the upcoming strategy game, which will feature an original story set in the Alien universe. In this gameplay trailer we learn that our ship has crashed onto Planet Lethe, and you'll be investigating a Xenomorph outbreak.

Aliens: Dark Descent challenges us to recruit and level up a squad of Colonial Marines as we explore the dangerous planet. Deploy your team strategically to safely make your way through the zone, but tread carefully as death is permanent.

Trackmania was recently released on xbox so I've been playing it a lot.. fun game and addictive. Addictive to the point where I question to turn it on because I know it's gonna lock me in for far too long.

Interesting. I had never heard of it. Went to Xbox and they were offering it for free so I figured, why not.

free version (which I'm playing) is limited but there is enough to dig in and have fun.

It’s hard! I definitely have a learning curve to overcome. I’m playing on easy level atm. Once I get the hang of all the mechanics, I’ll try moving up to normal difficulty.

Setting up your initial character traits is a crap shoot. There are many combinations to choose from. While it gives good descriptions for each, honestly, until I get into the game, I have know way to know if my choice will ultimately fit my play style.

Oh, and the graphics and sound are as good as advertised.

I expected there to be someone here talking about Helldivers 2. It's the most fun I've had in a game for quite a while. It's as if Halo, Starship Troopers and Warhammer 40k had a baby, and that baby chain smoked cigars. For the few people that haven't heard of this game yet, here's the trailer.
