Steam summer sale strikes again. Picked up Civ: Beyond Earth - Rising Tide expansion and I'm just testing it out now.

I'm a huge Civ 5 fan and was a bit disappointed with Beyond Earth on release.  I know the expansions added some depth to Civ 5 so hopefully this helps BE.

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.)

I get this. I got an odd calming satisfaction from collecting materials in Skyrim to build a house with the Hearthfire addition.

This perfectly describes how a good friend of mine and I felt with BE. Please keep us posted on how you feel about the expansion. We've been playing a lot of Endless Legends lately instead of CIV 5. We dropped BE almost a week after release. We were really disappointed with it.

I've sunk so many hours into Endless Legends. With all the DLC installed there is so much going on, never a dull moment.

I auto-resolve all battles tho, can't stand the combat interface. Kinda wish it was a bit more like a Heroes of M&M combat system - its halfway there already. Just zoom in on the battlefield a bit, make the unit control completely direct instead of the weird vague control system they have. Maybe in the sequel.

Glad to see Civ VI is adopting many ideas from it.

I manual the Silics battles. The enemy unit can only move 1 space at a time and you can kite them to take no damage, if you have a ranged army that is. If you auto resolve they usually do a lot of damage early on. This is an awesome little Easter egg for me because I put them at top priority for assimilation followed by the Dorgeshi.

Ok, so I've put a few more hours into it and it is better, but... it's still not holding my attention like Civ 5 or Europa Universalis does. Exploring the map is more interesting and they've added some more nuggets to find. The artifact system is neat and they've changed the diplomacy system for the better. Also, seems like they tweaked alien aggression in a positive way. There's a lot of little improvements, but it really feels like they just put some more makeup on Frankenstein's monster, but still haven't figured out how to bring it to life -- if that makes any sense.

I might just end up picking up Endless Legends, instead.

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 haven't tried Total War: Warhammer, but I wanted to give a shout out to a fellow tabletop player!  I didn't think there were any other mustachians doing it (or did it).

As far as other Warhammery Video Games, the Dawn of War series is really good to get into if you're into that 40k feeling.

Fortunately or unfortunately, I actually haven't done any video gaming recently at all, been focusing on the tabletop stuff lately (including alot of painting/modelling).

Oh God!  I hope my savings are enough, because I'm gonna get fired.  Pokemon Go came out yesterday and there is a gym at the end of the hall in my building.

I'm having fun with it, but I don't expect it will be a game that I will play for very long unless they add some more depth to it.  I don't really like the way the gyms work.

Picked up God of War III remastered since it's $10 at the playstation store right now.  Used to be an xbox guy so there's lots of PS4 exclusives that I've never played.  I like the cinematic, the way you kill bosses and stuff are pretty cool.  It seems to be very hack and slash though with not much strategy.  Either that or I don't know what I'm doing!

Excellent choice for game! You need to play Uncharted1-4 as well. The Ratchet and Clank games are fun too

My office is literally underneath the gym in my building. Have you found that pokemon don't spawn nearby? When I was home, I had pokemon spawning in my range at a constant rate, but at work not a single one.

It seems like there tends to be more spawning in higher populated urban areas.  Maybe other people are catching the pokemon at your work? I'm not sure if the pokemon spawns are specific to each person, or if they're a shared network resource.  I can't seem to catch anything at home (I saw someone walking around the apartment complex this morning before work staring at her phone the constantly), but I get a steady stream at the office (lots of older folk who probably wouldn't know or care about Pokemon Go)

Haha came on here to mention Pokemon Go!  You guys already beat me to it.  No gyms at my work, but I sit in range of a Pokestop.  I got an egg out of it so far.  The pokestops are interesting, many are points of interests I would have never heard about cept for the game.  I'm interested to see what else I will find.

I get pokemon at work at random times, much more than at home.  I could beat the dang gym at the end of the hall except for the damn glitches and freezes in the game.

I work in an urban area and there are a lot of pokemon to catch when the game is working.

I was actually the gym leader for a brief time this morning at my train station stop :)

I've finished Uncharted 1 & 2 (came with the PS4).  Just started 3 but put it down to play GoW III.  I also finished The Last of Us, which was amazing.

How on earth do people level up so fast in Pokémon Go? I spent some free time for three days walking around and catching, even evolving a few. Thought I was ready to take on a rival gym with my CP 300 Vaporeon. It was guarded by a CP 1000-something Jolteon.

I can't wait for this. My only complaint is that it doesn't look like Duck Hunt will be included. Still worth every penny.

RimWorld is pretty cool. It's a game similar to the playstyle of Dwarf Fortress, but themed in western/Firefly style.

The general strategy is to use accumulate lots of candy for common 3 stage evolutions (caterpie, weedil, pidgey), use a lucky egg and evolve them all at once. You'll get 1k xp per evolution. I have about 15 pidgeys, 10 weedils, and 10 caterpies waiting to evolve.

You get a lucky egg once you reach lvl 9.

A Dwarf Fort reference.....Yes, the hardest, most mind numbingly frustrating game that you can never stop playing.

The more you catch, the faster you can level up because you get stardust and candy when you catch the pokemon.  Also, there are a lot more pokestops and pokemon in downtown metropolitan areas where there are a lot of landmarks and buildings.  In my downtown area, a lot of times someone is using a module at a pokestop which attracts more pokemon to an area for everyone to catch.  Incense works the same way, but it is only for the person who uses it.

My apartment is within reach of a Pokestop where other regularly place lures, very convenient!

Unfortunately, since I haven't been playing every day, my collection of Pokemon is falling quickly behind the level they need to be to take over gyms. I did get lucky today and found an out of the way gym that I was able to (briefly) take - and then left a very low level Magicarp there for my own amusement. I'm sure whoever came there after me was very pleased about that!

Playing a game called Evolve which went Free to Play a few weeks ago.
Got to chat with some of the dev team for the game from Turtle Rock Studios that play a few times a week. Very cool people!
Very fun actiony game, although it always feel unbalanced for one side or the other depending on how much teamwork there is.

PCMR4Life. Just finished up the Witcher 3 Dlc (so good). Waiting now for Civ 6 and Torment. In the meantime I'll hiatus unless I can get Xcom 2 at a deep discount.

I'm guessing Civ 6 isn't going to be good until maybe the 2nd or 3rd expansion. I'm going to be waiting and reading reviews before I pull the trigger.

PCMR4Life. Just finished up the Witcher 3 Dlc (so good). Waiting now for Civ 6 and Torment. In the meantime I'll hiatus unless I can get Xcom 2 at a deep discount.

I'm guessing Civ 6 isn't going to be good until maybe the 2nd or 3rd expansion. I'm going to be waiting and reading reviews before I pull the trigger.

I'm thinking the same, however I've been a huge fan of the franchise since Civ 4 so I'll probably pre-order 6 just to enjoy it right away.

Bought Battlefield 4 from playstation store for $5.  Also Assassin's Creed Syndicate for $17 from Newegg w/ free 2 day shipping.  I try to buy stuff for under $25, $30 if it's something I'm really interested in.  Can't remember the last time I paid full or near full price.

I am SO INTERESTED in No Man's Sky, but my craptop won't support it. By the time I upgrade computers (in a few years, barring the unforeseen) the game will cost less. In the meantime I will obsessively read reviews.

Has anyone tried it?

From what I've been reading most people are pretty disappointed.

I used to play Everquest II and Starcraft.  When I FIRE I may look into playing more online games.  I kind of miss them but then life got in the way.

I'm dying to play this. I've read how much you'll like the game depends on what you actually like. If you're looking for battles or a plot heavy game, this isn't for you. If you're interested in exploring at your own pace and discovering new things, you'd enjoy it. I'm forcing myself to NOT get it on Steam yet - one, I'm not sure my desktop can handle it, and two, $60. Must... not... buy...

The first Mass Effect is on sale for $5 on steam though. I only tried it while ridiculously sick with the flu and on meds, so the game made zero sense to me. I LOVE Dragon Age, so I'm definitely interested in trying Mass Effect again.

I've heard No Man's Sky has been some pretty bad reviews so far. If a game is super poorly reviewed I usually turn my nose up. It just can't be worth $60.

I've heard the exploration in No Man's Sky sucks as well. Here's a breakdown of a lot of the problems:

My wife really liked the Mass Effect series.

The Kotaku review made it sound like my kind of game, once the bugs are worked out. Less goal-oriented and more imaginative and discovery- oriented. I assume the bugs will be worked out by the time it's a price I'm willing to pay. ;)

I am curious about mass effect. I, too, love dragon age. are they aimed at the same kind of gamer?

Mass Effect was an absolutely incredible series. 10/10. It's more of a RPG-lite when it comes to mechanics (gameplay is closer to a shooter, but I am not a huge FPS fan and I still loved Mass Effect), especially the second two games, which drop some of the RPG elements in the first. All of this is to say that the appeal is somewhat different from Dragon Age, but the story is epic and the game is extremely fun. Personally, I really liked both series (DA and ME).

Enderal - a total conversion mod for Skyrim. New story, new land, new game. I'm shocked that this free game is so incredible.

Thanks, I'm going to have to check this out.

Recently got "Ant Queen" because I was feeling nostalgic for the good old Sim Ant days. It isn't a great game, but not bad and did remind me of Sim Ant. I wouldn't recommend paying full price for it, but if you see it at 50% off and were a big Sim Ant fan you'll probably get a few hours of entertainment from it.
