    Mario 35 is pretty amusing

    Fortunately I'm not good at any Mario that doesn't have a hippo, so don't feel the need to try very hard at it

    I'm gonna say it: Oblivion was a better game than Skyrim.

    I play a couple of FB games currently: Diggy's Adventure and Game of Thrones: Winter is Coming. I'm pretty much out of video games besides that these days.

    Picked up a steampunk-y RTS called "they are billions" because i wanted to pick up an RTS and this seemed like a good one to start with. It's decent.

    Well, I snuck some time in and won at Wuppo! [​IMG] I was hoping for a pacifist award for the final boss, but nothing forthcoming.

    Have I talked about how much I like this game? Because I really like it. It's got a cute, appealing graphic design that can still combine with the music to be creepy or whatever mood is needed, the bosses are inventive, the storyline is fun, the worldbuilding is enough to feel worthwhile, it just all comes together so enjoyably. I still have some collectibles and bosses to find apparently.

    I also started playing Hue recently. I'd been eying it, and a friend gave it to me out of a bundle. It's a basic (so far) platformer where changing the background colors causes doors and things to appear or disappear as they do or don't blend in with the background, which makes it considerably less basic.

    I just started playing the Baldur's Gate 3 early access...

    I'm not even through the prologue yet, but I'm enjoying it so far. The only thing I don't like about it is that race/class choices are limited. Hopefully by the time of full release it'll have at least all the race/class options from the 5e Player's Handbook, and hopefully some others as well.

    Unlike the other Baldur's Gate and similar games, it's built around turn-based combat rather than real-time, which is interesting.

    Update: It's noticeably buggy, but early access. Also, the difficulty slider won't be installed until Tuesday, and I suck, so all combat after the prologue I keep getting my ass handed to me.

    I saw some early access videos, can't create my typical double dragon (dragonborn draconic bloodline sorcerer) character yet, was mildly disappointed. It's still early access though.

    Started up Momodora: Reverie Under the Moonlight. So far it's a side-scroller with less emphasis on platforming and more on dealing with enemies that each do different annoying things. No stat system for levelling, just an inventory for consumables and a couple of equipment slots. Also no reveries yet. Enjoying it.

    Also I tried to log in to Realm of the Mad God for the first time in a while and that thing's a resource hog now. :(
