Played Overwatch yesterday for the first time and it was super fun. Will probably be picking up a copy.

I also picked up Overwatch, and have really enjoyed it so far!  I'm not even a big fan of shooters, but Blizzard just has a knack for taking a genre and making it super approachable.  Amazon had Overwatch at $48 for Prime members, but I believe they opened that price up to others as well recently.

About 15 hours into Stardew Valley now and I think it's great for gamers with busy lives! Lots of fun, always something to do to feel like you're making progress, but not too "grindy" (except fishing can sometimes feel that way). Each "day" takes maybe 15-20 minutes to play, so it's perfect for short sessions. I could see this easily being a ~60 hour game just for one playthrough. Highly recommended to anyone who enjoys the Harvest Moon genre and only $15 at full price.

I was just about to recommend this game, it's very relaxing and I'm starting to unlock some of the stories by befriending the towns people enough (basically giving them a bunch of gifts). It's nice to have a game that's just about exploring and not kiling/getting killed all the time (though those are fun too).

Also, it's one guy who designed the whole game! I find that pretty bad ass.

This game kills me. When I first got it, I think I spent 70+ hours on it in a little over a week. To be fair, I have a tendency to leave it open for a while and walk away (since you can only save at the end of the day), and I was home sick for a day or two and couldn't do much more than crawl over to my desk chair and sit there like a lump. Then I just stopped. I picked it back up the other day and had a hard time getting back into it.

My friend is obsessed with Banner Saga. I really want to try it but I'm waiting for it to go on sale.

Just bought Fallout 4 from Newegg for $25 plus free 2-day shipping with ShopRunner (free if you have an AMEX card).  I got the PS4 version but I think PC & Xbox are also the same price.  Promo code is EMCEJGF32

I can't remember the last time I paid full price for a game.  I try to stay around $30ish per game give or take $5.

I can only play when I get the occasional hour on Saturday or Sunday when I wake up earlier than my wife. And that means I miss waking her up. Video games were a huge part of my life up until we moved in together. Since then it's just a rare hobby =(

Same here :/

If you're a Baldur's Gate fan, check out Pillars of Eternity that came out recently. It's pretty much the same thing with better graphics, a great story line, and good mechanics. I loved it.

+1

It was pretty good but magic was better in Baldur's Gate and Icewind Dale

I got a certain way into it. Liked it. Then got distracted/in to something else. Same with... Divinity Original Sin.

I ultimately had a similar experience. Spent a good 45 hours on it (and genuinely enjoyed them all), but then just stopped. Still, at $0.33/hour of relaxing entertainment, I would say the investment was worth it!

Got FF IX on Steam. Bloody Sealion got me, did continue.... And then found I'd missed a mognet letter.

UGH.

This is why I hate this game. Playing the PSP release I missed one Stiltzkin package.

Still. Speed boost is nice... I'll do some grinding later on, and I can flick it off and on in battle to speed stuff up.

I get that the characters are good. But the actual game is annoying. We'll see how far I get this time.

Looking forward to the VII remake, though it'll mean buying a ps4. Not sure if I should get XV.

I bought Doom the other day.  $37.99 on CDKeys after 5% coupon.

omg.

It feels like the 90's again, in such a good way. I haven't played such a familiar old-school shooter in years!

I started playing Total War: Warhammer. I used to the play Warhammer 40k/Fantasy as a kid on tabletop, so it feels like I'm back in the 90's again without the pain of having to paint 100's of miniatures. Plus, it's my first Total War game so the learning curve is somewhat steep, but it's been a blast so far.

DAOC is still around?  I played a smite cleric then a bonedancer on that back when it was just out...must have been 14 years ago now?

Was seriously thinking about picking this one up. I've never played a Total War or Warhammer game, but the idea of a fantasy themed epic strategy game where I can watch waves of dwarfs and orcs crash into each other sounds pretty sweet. I'll probably try to wait for a good sale, though, as I could see myself giving up if the learning curve is too steep. I don't seem to have the patience I used to when it comes to learning complicated games.

Enjoying Doom, trying to finish the Fallout 4's Far Harbor DLC then its on to Witcher 3 DLC. After that, I've got nothing new on my plate for a few months.

Might fire up Baldur's Gate EE or go back to Divinity Original Sin

As much as I want Doom.. I just can't pay the AAA prices on first release.
I've been playing Brutal Doom, a mod for Doom 2 which is just breathtakingly extensive. Absolutely amazing what the guy has been able to do with such an ancient engine. It's so damn good, it's scratching the exact itch that the new game was promising. I'll wait for a steam sale down the line to pick up the new one.

Did you play Pillars of Eternity? I haven't got around to knocking off it's two DLCs but I loved the main game. I tried to go back to Baldur's Gate but it's just too oldschool for me now (yes, my last paragraph was about doom 2), Pillars is a great reinvention.

If it helps at all, cdkeys has Doom for $39.99 and you can find a 5% Facebook-related coupon, bringing you to $37.99. I very rarely buy games this close to release, but I have no regrets.

Yeah lol, I play on a classic server so the target patch/content is old. I actually never played the real DAOC when it was out. Skald is my main. https://uthgard.org/

I am now unemployed, so when I'm not sending out CV's and worrying about finding new work, I'm playing Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria on PS2.  My fiancé tried to play it a few weeks ago and ragequit - he found the game mechanics unfair and far too difficult.

A friend let me borrow an xbox 360 and it has renewed my interest in games. Been playing bioshock 2, fallout 3, and GTA5. The 360 is old and has some problems and I'm thinking of jumping off the deep end and getting a PS4. Not sure if I want to go down the rabbit hole, this would be an easier decision if it were winter. Should I pull the trigger?

I prefer handheld console games, but have regular consoles as well.  My go to's are Pokemon and Animal Crossing.  I like the Nintendo and Playstation platforms.

One of the reasons I want to FIRE is so I can play video games.  I'd like to play through the Persona series, Final Fantasy series, Kingdom Hearts series, Atelier series, Skyrim and many others.  I am hoarding many video games to play when I finally have more free time.

Well.. I preordered Final Fantasy XV, Final Fantasy VII Remake, and No Man's Sky, all for PS4.

I don't own a PS4.

Thankfully I have some Amazon credit to pay for a PS4, which I'm hoping will get cheaper this week due to E3 or something.

All this talk about PS4/PS4+...I am just getting around to get a used PS3...I don't even know how many years behind I am... I still have a number of PS2 games that I bought but never had the time to play. The funny things is I still want to replay some PS1 games. At this pace, I will be buying PS4+ when they announce PS6...

Keep an eye out for online deals. I got the Ebay deal of the day Uncharted bundle for $350 (free shipping, no tax) that came with the console, Nathan Drake Collection, and Uncharted 4. You could sell the two games it came with for $85. This makes the actual PS4 $265. I think that's a good number.

+1 to deal hunting.  I picked my PS4 up last November (a few weeks before Black Friday) for ~$240 + tax at Target (including the Uncharted collection).

I just read an article about E3 and how Sony is all about games while Microsoft is more about hardware. As such, people were more excited about Sony. Then I watched a video showing some of Sony's presentation. Good god are those graphics sharp! The games look really nice, them bringing back some franchises as well as starting a new one or two. Plus their VR they plan on releasing.

Maybe Microsoft has realized that they were destroyed on the hardware front last time, and now they want to make up for it.

Funny thing is that the article also said it was the same last year, and Sony continued with the "game" focus. I didn't read any articles about it last year so I can't be sure. Although, I think I remember Microsoft making a big deal about their HoloLens last year.

I started playing Total War: Warhammer. I used to the play Warhammer 40k/Fantasy as a kid on tabletop, so it feels like I'm back in the 90's again without the pain of having to paint 100's of miniatures. Plus, it's my first Total War game so the learning curve is somewhat steep, but it's been a blast so far.
I am madly in love with this game. I am the opposite of you: never played Warhammer, but love the TW series. Literally can't stop playing.

I own about 30 original XBox games that I purchased back in 2005-2007 in my pre-Mustachian days. A lot of them are multiplayer and I never got around to playing a bunch of them. I just learned that some fans have basically made their own version of XBox Live to play these old games, since Microsoft ended XBox Live service for this console about six years ago. Over the summer, I'm going to figure out the tech to hook this old beast up and relive the glory days when I was in my 20s and wasted my money on stupid crap instead of paying the electric bill. :-P

I started playing Total War: Warhammer. I used to the play Warhammer 40k/Fantasy as a kid on tabletop, so it feels like I'm back in the 90's again without the pain of having to paint 100's of miniatures. Plus, it's my first Total War game so the learning curve is somewhat steep, but it's been a blast so far.
I am madly in love with this game. I am the opposite of you: never played Warhammer, but love the TW series. Literally can't stop playing.

I bought and installed a new Nvidia GTX 1080 for this game after I bought it. It looks amazing on full detail, so much fun.

Been playing Witcher 3: Blood and Wine. I can only imagine what that game looks like on PC

Howdy everyone, it's neat to see a bunch of gamers who also care about their financial security!

I've been playing Type Racer lately :)

I think it's pretty exciting, I also play Age of Empires 3 on the PC from time to time.  This is great thread, thanks.

The old-school Star Wars space sims are 50% off at GOG (the whole series is $20) - https://www.gog.com/game/star_wars_tie_fighter_special_edition

I had forgotten how awesome TIE Fighter was.

For 500-700$ USD, as sure as hell hope it looks nice!!!! :)

Myself, I would probably snag a RX470-480 later in the year if they live to their hype.

What settings do you guys game at? I just bought a GTX 960 and it's enough to run everything I own quite nicely at 1920x1080 at maximum settings. Are there really that many mustachians with 4k or 2560p displays?

I can't believe how cheap good-enough performance has gotten!

4k if I can (usually older titles), otherwise 1080 max'd out. 3570k / GTX 970.

Just finished Borderlands Pre Sequel, which I enjoyed very much. I run a two year old GTX 770 and it runs any game I throw at it just fine on max settings @ 1920x1080.

I love MMOs where I can decorate. Right now I'm playing Star Wars: The Old Republic (SWTOR) pretty much exclusively. I'm currently working on decorating my 3rd player house. My husband likes to joke that i only complete missions so I have money to decorate. Hey, gotta keep myself in the style to which I've become accustomed. :) (Oh, and it curbs my urge to spend more money on decorating IRL.)
