Oh, leviathan. Right? You've pretty much just named some of my favourite moments in that series.

I have been playing Pokémon Sword a lot since the back injury (I’m mostly fine now) and I have been trying my hand at Pokémon breeding.

It’s kind of tedious, but there are plenty of other things to do while you’re hatching eggs.

So this is an odd one for me: Tom Clancy's The Division 2.

If you'd asked me to pay up-front for a 'live service' cover-based shooter I'd have told you to go fuck yourself. But while bored the other day I saw that they offer 6 hours of a free trial period for it so I figured why not try it out. Worst case scenario I waste a few hours of time but no money.

But I'll be damned if I wasn't so into it by the end of the 6 hours that I willingly bought the full game to carry on playing. There's just something oddly compelling about it and I'm really enjoying my time with it. Which is really unexpected if you know anything about me and how much I usually dislike cover-based shooters.

I love it when they re-release old games in 4K. :awesome:

(Of which the second game (originally from 1998) is an example but not the first, which is exactly the way it was released for DOS in 1994. :keke:)


Oh, how did you manage to play Settlers 3? Would love to play this one again…

It's a re-release called the "History Edition". I expect you can buy it somewhere, though I pirated it (easily found through torrent). Let me know if you need help finding it. They did Settlers IV and the others too — though I never found anything after IV interesting. Still need to try out II, which is supposed to be really good. :)

Ooh, the city builder? :awesome:

Still need to try that one sometime! I did play Caesar III recently — well, the fan-made reverse-engineered open-source drop-in replacement that supports high resolutions, called Julius. :D

There's also a fan remake/expansion of that called Augustus, which adds loads of new features apparently.

I wonder if similar projects exist for Pharaoh.

With all the recent buzz, decided to pick up Nier Automata again for the 2nd playthrough.
That and Tekken 7 - Hype for the teaser at the end of evo 2022!

Yes, the very same. There is a reboot of sorts but I've heard it's a bit hit and miss.

So, I'm learning I'm apparently the only non-gamer/nerd this forum has!!! :P
