Re: What games are you playing currently?

Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare...it's pretty fun and funny. It's a third person shooter/tower defense game with some mild RPG elements in it. A 3D version of the 2D Plants vs Zombies and Plants vs Zombies 2: It's About Time. In mutiplayer, you can play as the plants or the zombies. Likely a good, light hearted alternative if you don't want your kids playing M (Mature) rated titles like Call of Duty, Halo, or Battlefield.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I started playing Apollo Justice. It's a good game, but I miss Phoenix, Gumshoe, and Edgeworth. It barely feels like an Ace Attorney game.

And after that, you can explain to him what Early Access means. Or should mean

I'm trying to think of a way to gently introduce him to the concept of DLC. Oh, and Microtransactions/IAP.

You mean paying more money for a game you already paid for, more of the same?

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I was a staunch GOG man before I caved and checked out Steam. The unfortunate truth is that a lot of the "grand" old games haven't aged well. I keep trying to motivate myself to play through that first mission of Deus Ex, for instance... just isn't happening.

As for microtransactions and ostensibly "free to play" games, yeah, no thanks.

DLC's witchy call is already loud in my eardrums, though. It whispers "Dragonfall. You know you want it." And I'm all like, "No, I am strong!"

But I am not strong.

There's some pretty good UGC for Shadowrun: Returns, though. At least the first one I tried out, "Nightmare Harvest," satisfied.

Heresy! Deus Ex holds up very well I thought (replayed it a few years back). What put you off, the graphics?

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Been given the GalCivs 3 beta a whirl this week. Quite pleased with how it's all going.

Also managed to get back into a little bit of Space Engineers on the weekend with a friend. Gravity is not my friend in that game and I had a crater that just had my bodies at the bottom of it due to me stepping off an edge and falling to my death because I got too used to my jetpack turning itself on.

Munin's driving me crazy. There's a feather on the level I'm on that I just can't get.

"What a shame."

Deus Ex is still a great game, maybe better than some of today's games.

Also try Planescape: Torment if you want a good and interesting adventure RPG with an engaging story.

As for me, still ticking away with the Elite: Dangerous beta. It's coming along well so far, despite the rough edges and missing features, and my combat skills have improved a lot.

It is also the best game of the franchise, although DX:HR was surprisingly great (minus the bossfights, which Bob tells me were all but fixed in the Wii U version).
