Since @Mad Rocket Scientist cottoned me on to the free giveaway of Subnautica, I have now spent 13 hours so far dying in all sorts of way: asphyxiation, starvation, dehydration, radiation poisoning, boiled alive, and being eaten--to name a few.  And, as  bonus,, having things I build get destroyed (sound familiar?)  It is a frustrating, maddening, discouraging and absolutely brilliant game.

 

But I do need to take a break before I rebuild my Sea Moth for the fourth time...

Sounds like you found Sammy the Safety Reaper. (The community has named all the large monsters in the game) You may want to invest in a hull reinforcement module for your seamoth, you need a base with a moonpool and a vehicle upgrade console in it.

I have been playing World of Warships and Portal. World of Warships is craaaaaaaazy expensive. The Tirpitz is like in excess of $40. Thats more expensive than KSP!!!

Could you imagine if KSP's seas on Kerbin and Laythe looked like those?

Nope nope nope. After Space Engineers and its three-year-long detour into planets, I have a violent reaction towards any sort of scope creep.

Been trying Interstellar Rift this week...  Makes me appreciate the SPH editor a LOT!  (still wish moving between the VAB and SPH didn't change-up on the controls)

I got Subnautica for free too, and I have died too many times for me to count :D. I confronted the Reaper Leviathan in a seamoth and jumped off my seat with a yelp. I also found the Ghost Leviathan today! (Yes its as cool as it sounds!)

My only complaint is that I don't have a spear or a harpoon of sorts. And there's no Aquaman in that game. I want aquaman....

Yes, I quoted myself... 

As of last night, I have a staggering 120 hrs now logged on this game.  Will see how the next 100 hrs goes, but this one has potential to be the KSP killer for me.

Funny thing...  its a sci-fi fantasy spaceship builder sandbox game that was designed around multiplayer from the start.  So guess what the community is talking about?  How the devs should maybe focus their time on single player and possibly just scrap multi-player.  LOL...  Damned if you do, damned if you don't!

Not crazy about exposing my peaceful exploration and science vessel to the riggors of the PVP servers; I can't even kill the lowliest of PVE baddies yet.  ...but I will definitely be on the PVE server in the next week.  It's a little tough managing a Battlestar Galactica sized dreadnaught all by me lonesome self!  Not exagerating at all on the size of the craft that you can build in this engine.  My first ship is about on par with the size of an aircraft carrier with 3 distinct hull sections spanning 5 decks and so far, I only used the "small" and "medium" sized engines.

Anyone interested in Star Wars/Trek sci-fi capital ship multiplayer?

I discovered OneShot today. I like it a lot so far!

I also started Lone Echo, which is really well done.

I quoted myself to note that it was a 120 hrs of gametime logged in about a 2 week timeframe. 

Not adorable... disturbing.  I had to put it down for a few days.

In my defense though...  I was on vacation with a head cold; so no incentive to leave the house.

Bloody Minecraft, the game you love to hate.

Can't move nothing in there exept for riding bloody animals in that game.

That's why I keep coming back to KSP...

Ace Combat 7.

In fact, I'm so soaked in it at home, the only time I can play KSP is if I can sneak time at work, and lately that's been impossible, so I'm kinda missing my space hotels and munar construction sites already. 

Still, Ace Combat. The one series guaranteed to put muh space program on pause. :cool:

I'm bouncing between Stellaris (and fighting with recent 2.2.3 update) and a cool game called One Hour One Life which is as the developer describes it:

"a multiplayer survival game of parenting and civilization building"

Disclosure: I'm in no way affiliated with the developer. He's a one-man band type out West somewhere who just makes a ton of quirky awesome games.

I’m slowly building up my deck of customs civs (OK, custom civs, but I do plan to play as a Trade League) to play against. Can’t stand the stock ones.

This weekend will be a good amount of the Anthem demo, probably.  I don't know much about it, but a friend gave me a token to get access to the demo this weekend.

Which means I'll need to boot into Windows.

Sigh.

The things we do for friendship.
