What game are you playing lately?
« on: November 10, 2016, 08:29:30 PM »

I'm not much of a video gamer, but I love Diablo 2 Expansion (it's probably my favourite game), so I still play that a lot.  Lately I've discovered that I'm good at speed running it, so I've been doing that with some experimental Assassin character builds.

Attached is a quick screenie of one such experiment (normal mode, since I was testing a build approach to get me through normal mode Acts 1 & 2 as fast as possible).  With this particular character, I beat Andariel at 11th level and Duriel at 15th, total time on par with current world record pace.

What I'm working on is optimizing each stretch of the game so that if I'm playing a full speed run all the way through, I have the character build for each section down pat and don't need to fiddle with it (which costs precious minutes).

What have you been playing lately?

1. System Shock is getting a remake by Nightdrive:
http://systemshock.com/about/

As part of the Kickstarter, I got the enhanced version of the original which I've been playing lately. I'm really only familiar with SS2, so it's interesting to get the backstory. Of course, this means I'll have to re-play SS2 soon.

2. Also playing Skyrim: Special Edition. I bought the original + all DLCs for cheap on Steam awhile back so they gave me this one for free. The updates make it worth another play-through in my opinion. I wouldn't have spent $40 on it, though.

3. I bought Super Castlevania 4 for SNES and have been playing that as well. I'm going backwards in this series as my first experience was Symphony of the Night on PlayStation and this is only my second. I love pretty much everything about this game, so far.

4. I'll be buying one of the NES classics as well assuming I can get my hands on one...

Geez... And I thought I was working on spending less of my time on video games.

... my first experience was Symphony of the Night on PlayStation ...

Hard to improve from there, IMO. The only reason I still have an original PlayStation console.

I still dabble in WoW, and am occasionally on Diablo 3. I was addicted to Darkest Dungeon for a while, but I borrow the game through library sharing with my just-as-addicted partner, so...

Mersault just mentioned Tyranny on FB, so I might need to spend some money.

Three words for you guys... Euro Truck Simulator.

What?... I like to drive.

The setups that some people have are INSANE. Check out this guy. That's dedication if you ask me. I'm fine with a keyboard and joystick, thank you very much!

My claim to fame is that I commented on that game after he won... you know, during the part where they're scrolling by so fast nobody can read it.

I'm reasonably sure I'm not, but I'll have to check and get back to you.

WoW mostly, but I will confess to being mostly inactive due to work schedule and writing. Legion is still fun, though.

Ditto - haven't logged on for a while either. I also play Hearthstone, but that's typically to run the odd Arena and complete Quests.

I've been seeming to flit from game to game lately. Fired up Diablo II for a spell as well, ran through Fable, Neverwinter Nights, and StarCraft ("Battlecruiser operational.").

Now it's EVE Online, and I'm absolutely hooked. Fly me to the moon!

I gotta get back on my Euro Truck Simulator.

Now that I work from home, I suppose this is logical this way I can sit in traffic on a video game after work since I don't have to deal with it commuting.
