I see just enough of what it could be that I'm able to play that game at least as much as the one that exists. Many games have tried to fail so well and... um... failed.

Yeah, Meltdown isn't bad at all, for bundle scrapings (it's in the PWYW tier on the latest Groupees). Pretty simple little isometric 3PS, and slightly wonky difficulty curve - its origins on mobile as a monetisation engine are a little too obvious. But it looks and plays satisfyingly... chunky. Visuals are repetitive, sure, but they're nicely done and endearingly retro, the controls are nice and responsive and the weapons have a decent amount of weight to them. Online co-op seems to work smoothly enough (though player counts are almost dead, unsurprisingly). Certainly worth its full budget price and definitely worth the dollar minimum (AFAIK) for the bundle.

Rossignol! I usually spend my time in travel and image capturing. I am a professional traveler. But now I am playing Mini Ninjas. I like this game.

I have more than 300 hours on CS:GO now. Will keep playing.
As far as guerrilla, I've got 2 hours in it haven't looked back.
Far Cry 3 was fun although I haven't finished it. Someday...

I'm about to head into the Many which is new territory. This is where I always stop playing because it just doesn't look fun, like Xen without the low gravity and ejaculating giant crab, but this time I'm going to do it. It's been about eleven years since I first played the game I'm long overdue for a completion. I think I've prepared enough so it might not be too bad.

It's probably the only part that won't feel like plain backtracking and worn off the game in a couple of runs. But yeah it may feel alienating from what you' ve been playing.

I freely admit I'm saying this after only having played the game for about ten minutes, but still, after seeing their latest Steam news post (in response to players asking for a run button)? Jeez, indie developers. Jeez.
Whispering Willows was created to be an immersive experience where players took their time to really read, admire, and explore the world.
Compare that with Eidolon, which is (almost) as lo-fi as it gets, but where the sense of scope and scale and grandeur hits me wham! inside the first thirty seconds, to the point that while that game allows me to run whenever I like, I've already been playing it for eleven hours and I've barely sprinted for any longer than a few minutes in total.
I'm all for restricting the player's actions in the right circumstances but this really doesn't feel like it should be one of them. Not a promising start; thank God I didn't spring for the full price.

Creeper World 3: Arc Eternal. I forget who here recommended this game, but I'm glad they made me buy it. It's really rather nice, even if I'm probably not playing it right; I don't think I'm more than maybe 10-12 missions in and the last one took over three hours to finish (granted, I am a bit too fond of terraforming everything, which takes time). But then, my main problem in many games is that they don't allow me to take my time, so it's rather nice, though the creator of some of the missions don't seem to have taken into account that some people play as slowly as me because the creeper sometimes stops flowing after a while and that makes things a bit easy.
Also nice that the game allows you to ignore what it tells you to do and do things your own way instead.

Morrowind. I'm enjoying the exploration and more detailed conversations that are qualities of its age. The former I guess is due to a lack of fast travel, whilst the latter is because they didn't try to voice everything.
I've also installed the graphics and sound overhaul pack, and whilst it doesn't make the game look like a last year's AAA release it does just seem to improve the environment all round. The ashlands in particular are noticeably darker and more surreal.

Aye, the view distance increase is part of the pack. The world really is damn beautiful in a way neither Oblivion or Skyrim really recaptured (other than on the very odd occasion).

I thought Dead Island would keep me busy until Wasteland 2 is out but that didn't work out at all and instead I am playing another dreaded game: Fallout: Tactics. Dreaded because, well, it's a Fallout game with all the good bits cut out and instead it's a bit like an Xcom clone with a Fallout theme. I think people would not be so dismissive if they did literally that.
Basically you create your main guy at the beginning and later hire more from an ever expanding roster. You go on missions and kill a lots of bad guys while there is not a whole lot of roleplaying, sadly. It also does some strange thing with the lore which is why it's only considered semi-canon. Is it a bad game? No. Is it a good game? Well, no. Instead of being its own game it often feels too much like a stripped down version of the original games. It looks much crisper than the predecessors and it's very atmospheric when it tries but there's just not very many moments of brilliance.
Also, in typical Fallout tradition it happens to be very glitchy. Did you know you can feed laser turrets drugs and then kill them through the withdrawal?Old hat! A Steam curator page focusing on Immersive Sims WIP

Update: Currently playing Mark of the Ninja again, doing the new game plus thingie plus special edition content. Aside from that, some fiddling about in Minecraft and I've started playing Baldur's Gate again as well.

So I'm trying to maintain the Iberian kingdoms under my rule while I dodge the Muslim menace to the south in Crusader Kings 2, again. Fewer clicks per minute.
