What will you play in the weekend?

I might finally find the time to get back to

…and while I’m at it, maybe some

and/or some

No Man’s Sky Beyond in VR. I ran into a broken quest so looks like I may have to start again!

More No Man’s Sky here this weekend. I saw a 33 slot freighter for 128m that I need to make some $ for. Also need to find the perfect planet for a base. I might try to fire it up in vr on the oculus.

I am back to playing Pillars of Eternity. I had left to play Dark Souls 3 with the gang but I finished last week and have just been helping others since then. Today I decided it was time to return to Pillars.

Most definitely more RGO, and maybe Shadow of War now that @vinraith mentioned it.

The alpha is out, so I’ll be checking out:

I guess it’s finally time to, ahem, try this beast:

There’s some new gamepass games:

And, of course, I’ll continue grinding season 4 in:

And, finally, I’ll be trying out some new releases: Vigor on my Xbox and Gears POP! on my iPhone.

Very little gaming time this weekend, as it turns out, but I have taken a dip or two back into an old favorite:

I started the weekend by playing Rebel Galaxy Outlaw. I’m enjoying it but I find I can’t play it for more than an hour or two. It gets too grindy and repetitive. The best way to make money early on is mining and it’s not exactly exciting.

So I started playing Far Cry Primal, the only Far Cry game I never played. Enjoying it so far!

I really wanted to play Assassin’s Creed Odyssey over Steam Link… but I’m not sure how to do that since the game is on ubisoft’s uplay client. I wish I could transfer ownership to Steam.

Finished up Yoku, played 2 rounds of golf, and solved a few puzzles with my robot eyeball.

Overall a great weekend!

Ys VIII: Fishing Fishy Fish For Fuck’s Sake

Some of my prior thoughts on the joy of fishing in video games: LINK

Super Mario Maker 2: Onslaught of the Sadists

Nintendo gives the next Hitler the keys to the city.

Contrary to all my plans, I mostly ended up playing:

Which, it turns out, is pretty great.

Just more Rebel Galaxy Outlaw. Congrats to @tbaldree and the other people at Double Damage Games for making a compelling experience.

I had a better time in Vendetta Online last night (Sunday evening):

Events are one of the areas where this game truly shines.

I’ve been playing The Golf Club 2019 lately, and while I think it does a lot right, I find that it mostly makes me nostalgic for the mid-2000s PGA Tour games.

The course builder is awesome, though, even if it’s not great at extreme terrain There’s a Pittsburgh-area golf course built around the top of a hill that crushed me in real life, and I’ve been trying to build it in the game with only a little success.

I seemed to have spent my time with Offworld Trading Company. No enjoyed it, but I guess I was surprised.

My weekend was No Man’s Sky with a dash of Elite Dangerous.

@legowarrior am I understanding that correctly that you didn’t enjoy playing Offworld?

Oh I did, I just wasn’t planning on playing it with my limited free time. I was hoping to get a few more hours on Pathfinder Kingmaker.

I played the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Gunfight Alpha pretty much exclusively and it was a blast. The basic gameplay is superb and has a really weighty feel for all the weapons. Everything save the basic pistol is deadly depending on range, which all seems perfectly calculated for some great gun battles. People were mostly cool, and one game in particular had me laughing like mad…

…we got our four players and one of the guys immediately asks if we can go fists only in Gunfight OSP (On Site Procurement) where that’s how you start. I said, “I’m game” and there wasn’t a reply from the other two. Turned out I was on the team of the guy that asked so in the fifteen seconds before the match started, we’re discussing whether they’ll be all in on it or not…

Counter gets to 3, 2, 1… we step out from cover and two dudes are coming at us all assholes and elbows under the walkway on docks. My teammate says something like, “Beat his ass!” and we engage in a hell of a brawl. I was laughing so hard I cried. It was so much fun!

Apparently this is similar to a Rainbow Six: Siege call of “Knives Only” that pops up in chat sometimes. It was a damn blast! I’m still grinning thinking about it. The final kill often ended with a fist to the chin. All it needed was a “KNOCK OUT!” call from an announcer. About five rounds in, we decided to goad them into trying to get onto a car on that map. The one dude stood way back and fired a shot! Yoooooo! My teammate goes, “Did he just shoot you?!” incredulously. Haha! Good times.

Anyway, Gunfight bodes well for a great Call of Duty game this fall. It is excellent.

Remnant From The Ashes.

It’s only Wednesday! Let’s not start planning for the weekend just yet.

But if I had to plan, it would be same as usual:
Rebel Galaxy when I’m upstairs and can plug in my joystick
Dark Souls 3 when I’m upstairs and have uninterrupted play time
DiRT Rally 2.0 when I’m upstairs and could get interrupted with five minutes notice
Forza 6 when I’m downstairs and the TV is free
Steamworld Dig when I’m upstairs and could get interrupted any second
Overload when I’m upstairs and feel like Dark Souls 3 is too easy.
