Europa Universalis IV was on sale for $10 so I bought it, installed it, played it for 5 minutes and decided i didn't have 2 months to figure out how to play then opened Planet Coaster instead, they had a new content pack (vintage).  One day I will sit through all the you tube videos it Will take to get the hang of EU 4. by then i'm sure 5 will be out and I will have to do it all over again.

I love Planet Coaster, by far the best theme park simulator/builder ever made.

I tried to figure out how to play the latest Europa Universalis after I had already downed several cold ones. I lasted a little long than you, maybe 15 minutes, before I closed it and went back to the sweet embrace of Civilization 6.

Spider-Man (PS4) - 9/10

I had heard a Spider-Man game was coming, but seeing as I'm not a huge Spider-Man fan I figured I could let this go. Then I started seeing screenshots online, and all the comments on every image was overly positive.
So I figured I'd give it a shot, because certainly it can't be that good.
Boy, was I wrong. The story was good, the acting good, the villains good, plot twists were good, ending was good. All my Spider-Man experience comes from watching the various movies, which helped a lot because the big baddie was the only disappointment... not in execution, but in predictability.
Earlier today I managed to get the Platinum trophy (get all the trophies on the game).
Even though I'm now 100% complete, I might just play a bit more just for the awesomeness of swinging through the streets of New York City stopping crimes in the very good combat system.

Bought Keep Talking and No One Explodes, specifically anticipating some long holiday get-togethers.

Played it for 30 minutes so far and it's crazy fun.  I really hope there's time to play it tomorrow at our big family Thanksgiving.

$5 on Steam right now.  https://store.steampowered.com/app/341800/Keep_Talking_and_Nobody_Explodes/


Just please tell me there's bomb serial IDs with the letter "m" in them.  You know, "M" as in "mancy".   :laugh:

I played that game for the first time while fully drunk and tired at 5 am last Friday. We still nailed it. When you're in the zone, you're in the zone.

Im at the stage where Im rooting for games to be bad so I dont have to buy them.
Looks like this is going on my list.

I've been watching a series of YouTube videos (search for Kruggsmash if you're interested) that has rekindled my interest in Dwarf Fortress.

As you may be aware, Dwarf Fortress is known for two things in particular: First, for being one of the most complex and detailed world simulations ever programmed, which it can get away with by having crap graphics, and second for its horrifically steep learning curve. I mean horrifically steep.

But the kinds of stories you can get out of it make it seem worthwhile to try again. The last time I tried, I got as far as creating the world, and then I couldn't work out how to do a single thing. Having seen games in progress I now think I might have a chance of giving it another go.
