My wife and I have been tearing it up in Valheim. Good base building game that has one thing I really wish was in KSP: If you clip parts in the design phase, they ARE CONNECTED. PERIOD.

I've also had Soda Dungeon 2 idling for about 2 months. I don't generally like idle games but this one is so good. And it's a F2P that is actually F to P.

Another indirectly related tangent.

Out of morbid curiosity, I took a glance at the EA sale.

With all of its DLCs and multiple discounts ATM, The Sims 4 would set you back RUB 38 731. For reference, 2k-2.5k is the norm for a AAA game. Our interns earn 38k gross per month; McDonald's promises you "up to 50k" with bonuses, and that's considered decent money outside Moscow. For a different reference, 38k is enough to kit out up to half a dozen kids for school (the Moscow government assumes a grant of 5k per each is sufficient).

I'm sticking with roubles because game publishers adjust their prices according to arcane logic that factors in income levels and probability of piracy, rather than exchange rates... which often means hella cheap games across the ex-Soviet space.

Russia does have an obscenely depreciated currency; as per the usual yardstick, the Big Mac is RUB 135 or less than $2.

Who the heck is the target audience here? And they say FPSs with microtransactions are predatory...

I'm ABOUT to get and play Metroid Dread. 

 

Only been waiting 20 years for another 2D Metroid game can't wait!

Bought Sprocket. Game is pretty raw. Will get back to you once I get my Renault FT to move.

I was looking at getting this game, been holding off for a sale + time to actually play it.

Wide of you. I took the plunge and thus far went on hiatus after one failed tank.

It seems to actually be harder to put together something WWI-looking.

I don't have an EA account but I just checked Steam and the game is $10 American (75% off, usually $40). The game with DLC and some bundle (how is that different from DLC?) is $21.43, 76% off the roughly $90.

AAA games usually run $60 here, which is also about what my wife and I pay for dinner out and drinks. $60 is about 4 hours' work at McDonald's going by their "$15/hour!" signs I see when I drive by.

How much more DLC does the EA store have than Steam? Like 27 billion?

Lately...  It's been Empyrion.

I own that. Never got into it after multiple attempts to.

Lately I'm still playing Valheim, but also started a gem-matching steampunk mech rougelike (I think they googled "things Superfluous J likes" when designing this game) named Ironcast. It's not perfect but it's pretty good.

Image in spoiler because it's kinda big.

Can't blame you... the gameplay is presented (thru tutorials) that lead you down a path of destruction and rage quitting.

It's when you realize the engine that drives all aggression towards you is entirely under your control, that it begins to feel like a simple sandbox.

Sniper Elite 4 , except I sneak around and stab people instead of shooting them , which leads me where I got the idea as i'm also playing Hitman 1 , 2 & 3 and as I have completed all three version in Master Mode , I know use them as a excuse to kill everyone on each level .

Maybe I have anger issues :ph34r::lol:
