I mean it makes sense that if there's only 6 of you against 4 x your number that stick together and take things incredibly slowly and carefully but it also just makes things a boring steam roll. If you scout properly you will never have to face more than maybe twice your number due to the way the reveal mechanic works. It never really feels like you against the odds unless you advance piecemeal or spread out, in which case you die in short order. As a result I rarely got any drama or stories to tell, because it was either play the maths game and be largely fine, so no drama there, or play the hollywood approach and everyone gets wiped out.
There's just not much tension for that reason the times I've played. Its either slow, steady, safe and end turn more than you would in a game of CIV til you're done, or everything goes bad and everyone dies .
The most exciting games are the ones at the start, before you've advanced up to ignore the AI buffs, as those tend to be close no matter what you do. But they can also be infuriating too because the AI ignores cover at that point, so you can play the perfect defensive counter attack and still die because stats and fuck you. Basically it's fun at that point cos it's random, but it's also incredibly annoying for the same reason at times.

Yes, it is a lot of fun. Although the religious fundamentalists and the capitalists are not happy with how I run things. Oh well, just like real world.

I played a few rounds of SOTS: The Pit, thinking that I might enjoy another turn-based roguelike, but it's a bit boring. I was hoping to play a sort of mechanically similar Dungeons of Dredmor on a smaller scale and in a sci-fi setting, but it went a bit too far in the other direction. You have three classes, and they share about a dozen skills, many of which seem to do the same thing: open doors and containers. Combat doesn't seem to be especially interesting either; I'm either knifing enemies or shooting them. There's also crafting, but you have to discover the recipes over multiple playthroughs in a sort of meta-progress, so I guess that means my options in the early game are pretty limited. Overall, not impressed.

Dark Strokes but sadly that's not on Steam. Pickers has a plainer, less artsy look but s very well made (professionally, you could say) nonetheless

I didn't know you'd be able to pick your dragon and they'd have different styles and abilities. That's cool.

Right now I'm having more trouble with the Dragon form since you can't build units and your control over your army is rather limited.

Past the first chapter in Dragon Commander and have no idea where to go from here. I start right next to this badass opponent who is absurdly overpowered and can probably take my headquarters in two turns. I've got three ships but what do I do with them? Make land grabs? What's the point? Obviously there's some strategy here that eludes me.

Just had the most fun game of DOTA 2 yet. I was playing support Leshrac, had nice people on the team and we generally played well. In the end we were missing mid and bot rax and so were the opponents, but a good teamfight gave them the edge.
Sadly something went wrong when I hit close on the scoreboard at the end. The servers decided I was still on the middle of a game. If I tried to reconnect the game was not found (obviously) and so I had to "abandon" it, so now it isn't on my statistics and I missed any possible drop.

Some thoughts on Mass Effect 2 on Insanity difficulty;
- Even though I'm playing this with a maxed out imported ME2 character from a previous playthrough, who was herself ported over from a level 60 ME1 playthrough, and it's still incredible how hard this difficulty level is.
- There are certain parts I've had to replay nearly a dozen times each. In particular, that bit in Archangels' base where you have to seal the shutters. Coming round that blind corner where a Vorcha pyro is waiting for you is frustratingly lethal unless you manage to get very lucky with an overload or incinerate to detonate the bastard.
- Kasumi: Stealing Memory is made even more difficult because there are only two of you on the mission rather than the usual three.
- I am dreading a couple of later fights. Zaeed's loyalty mission has endlessly respawning enemies in that room with the overhead flame-spewing tanks, and I barely got through that on a lesser difficulty.

I'm playing Dragonborn. I'm not normally one for nostalgia but wandering around Raven Rock listening to the Morrowind music did make me think of being a 17-year-old swimming in his first Elder Scrolls game. It's actually somewhat sad because I don't think I'm able to get into RPGs as much as I could in my late teens.
Then my follower vanished randomly and the game slowed down to a crawl. Good old Elder Scrolls.

I had my horse vanish once. I found it a few minutes later, dead, with most of the body clipping down through the ground. Only the head was poking up. Silly horsey.
Lately I've been playing some Rising Storm. I'm always impressed by how much of a difference a good commander can do in a match.

Playing DoW2: Retribution. Impy Goo on hard. Glorious, glorious flammenwerfers with constant executions to be had. I think I would've outspammed the Nids if this keeps onArt blog here.
