I highly recommend it. Such an amazing game even without the terrifying descents. The wonder and exploration is top notch.

I actually got Soma free from the epic store a year ago. Barely got to playing it now. I highly recommend checking it out every now and then, I've gotten a lot of good games for free from there (but let's not talk about how I've barely played a third of those free games...)

Dude... my Steam library is littered with the corpses of games I got during Steam sales in the Summer and Winter and then either never played or have barely played. Nearly 20 years of them. 😂

This is their business model I swear. Who doesn’t need Europa Universalis and it’s 7 expansion packs for $19?

You, Lawlor, that’s who.

We’re all sitting in the dugout. Thinking we should pitch. How you gonna throw a shutout when all you do is bitch.

Have... have you been looking at my Steam Library? Don't forget about Crusader Kings III and DLC, Cities: Skylines and all of its DLC, and so much more. Oh, and the entire Final Fantasy collection of their games on Steam. 

Yeah, I may have a problem. I actually just looked and discovered I just need two more games to hit 300.

Anyone playing the new Hogwart's legacy game? Surprisingly fun combat and an OK storyline. I'm just killing time until D4 and the new Jedi Fallen Order game are released.

On one shoulder is an angel wisely saying you’re never gonna have time to play this. On the other is a devil screaming the Vanishing of Ethan Carter is bundled with 4 indie games for three dollars, you’re practically losing money if you don’t buy it at that point.

I just bought Ori will of wisp, return of obra dinn, and imposter factory in the last sale. Who knows when I'll get to play them heh. Recently restarted Monster Hunter World, and also playing Stardew valley with the miss occasionally.

Amazing game, I've talked about it extensively on here a few pages ago. My only gripe for HL is that there is no morality system or Quidditch. The main story is pretty forgettable, but the side quests are great. I particularly enjoyed Sebastian and Poppy's companion quest lines. My wife is 2 achievements away from 100% completion.

The next big game I'm waiting for is definitely Jedi Survivor. I 100% completed Jedi Fallen Order and it's become one of my favorite Star Wars games. It will be interesting to see if they bring Cal Kestis into the live action Star Wars canon.

I think the live action show they could fit him into as things stand right now would be Andor, given the timeline. Or they could just skip him all the way to where Mando and BoBF — and likely the Ahsoka series — take place in 9 ABY, where he'd be in his early 40s.

My steam library is mostly the Total War games. Well, the ones that still work. OG Shogun and Medieval, yeah. Rome got a recent upgrade, making mods easier. Medieval 2 still gets a ton of great mods (historical and fantasy).

Anyone have any gamecube games they wanna sell?

I have a couple of them, I'd have to find them. One isn't for sale though... it's Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance, which goes for upwards of $300-400 on eBay.

My copy of Smash Bros. Melee was stolen from me back in high school. I'm still miffed about it. Lol

I love RTS but never played Total War. I've heard all good things. Need to get to work on building that gaming PC.

Oh damn, that sucks. I think I have that one somewhere as well. Metroid Prime, Mario Party (whichever number was on the GC), and a few others that I can't even remember the names of right now.

Total war is great as a whole. The RTS is good but games with a narrower scope that only focus on the battles are better in that regard. The mods are great though.

Rome and Medieval 2 at least, don't need anything that special. A semi-recent computer or even laptop works just fine. Even Empire Total War isn't too bad.

Its after those games you need to really pay attention to what your PC has. And for Medieval at least, I highly recommend mods. They expand on types of units, factions you play as, the map size, and even little mechanics to improve more minor things. Not to mention you have mods that focus on being more historically accurate, but ones that turn the entire game to something like, for example, the LOTR universe (maps, factions, all of it).

Speaking of LOTR did you ever play Battle for Middle Earth 2? AWESOME game.

Not that much of a story. I had one of those "friends" in high school who was nice to your face, but would do shady shit when you weren't looking. I invited him over to play some games and eat pizza one weekend and when I went to the bathroom he pocketed my game. He stole it out of the case and denied ever taking it when I confronted him about it. I was just playing it the day before, so I knew he was the only one who could have taken it. I didn't bother to speak to him again after that.

The Total War franchise is one of my favorites in all of gaming. I played the original Rome: Total War back when I was in high school. If you're interested in jumping in, I would recommend Rome II: Total War as there are a lot of factions to choose from, city management is easy, and you can run it on basically anything as it's the best optimized Total War title. Empire and Napoleon are both great for the time periods, but it's much slower paced and the battle mechanics takes some getting used to. I think the most challenging of the franchise is Attila. Attila is personally one of my favorites, but you need a beast of a rig because of how poorly optimized it is. I have all the Warhammer games, but I tend to stick to the historical titles. Medieval II is also a really good pick up. I personally wouldn't bother with Thrones of Britannia, Troy, or Three Kingdoms.
