We have writers from not only all walks of life, but from all over the world! I reached out to see what video games everyone has been diving into recently and figure out what’s been plopping them on the couch firmly. Or chair. Or hot tub. What? How do you play video games?
“My husband and I have just upgraded to a PS4 Pro so enjoying playing a lot of Battlefront 2 – which is always love (even with Ewok Hunt). I am looking forward to the new Han Solo update coming in the next couple of days. My son also got a Switch recently for his birthday so when he goes to bed I like to nerd out on Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Mario Odyssey. Husband is playing God Of War and loving it.”
“Last I played was DeathSpank which I loved because I like RPG games and it’s dumb-funny game. It’s fantasy adventure and he’s a guy who goes on a quest in a medieval type village setting. It’s self aware and makes fun of itself so that’s funny to me. My last card game I played was Cards Against Humanity which is always twisted and fun, we also play Disgruntled Decks which is a military version of Cards Against Humanity.”
“We’re playing Rise of Tiamat for DND, we’ve been playing for about 2 years. It’s been a blast and the group has gotten increasingly goofy. My second group is playing Storm King’s Thunder. That group only started about a month ago. My first group has a plan to launch an adamantin rod from a flying castle and use attack dinosaurs in underground tunnels. It’s gotten weird.”
“Newest game I’ve played is Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire. I just started playing it but I’m really enjoying it. It has a sort of Diablo 3-Esque view. The character creation also leads towards a Dungeons and Dragons angle where you select your class, then subclass, then stats and skills. I did not play the first Pillars Of Eternity but it isn’t like you get completely lost in the new game without playing the first one. Other then that I’ve stuck to my regular cycle of Fortnite, Overwatch, League and World Of Warcraft.”
“Yeah, I’ve been playing Pillars Of Eternity II: Deadfire as well. It really is such a complex but accessible game. The challenge is there, the deep mechanics are there, and the great story and characters are there. It really has everything you’d want out of any of the RPG video games out there. Read more about my thoughts here, and pick up the game here:”
“Honestly I’ve been mostly in a sports mood lately. Been playing lots of MLB the show. I’d absolutely recommend it. The nicest update this year is how they’ve changed their road to the show mode. Basically, you can’t purchase anything to increase attributes anymore. You have to improve your abilities purely through experience”
“Right now, I’m torturing myself by playing Kuso on Steam again. I wrote a review on it a while back, and while I rage quit for a moment, I’m back and determined to pass all these goddamn levels. The game is fun, addicting, and a little nostalgic with the pixel graphics. 11/10, do recommend. Though if you’re determined like me, you may end up staying in the house all weekend trying to complete it.”
“Recently I have been revisiting one of my favorite games, Left 4 Dead 2. Release in 2009, Left 4 Dead 2, the sequel to Left 4 Dead, introduced a ton more fun to an already fun game. Newer guns, maps, characters, infected, and game types. While I have never ventured to any other game type other than co-op, I have heard they can be fun. The new infected are probably the worst part of the update. The jockey, spitter, and charger are the most annoying infected. They seem to overrun the game. But I love this game, I always have. Being able to play with a friend in the same room is what makes this game fun. My girlfriend and I have been playing through each map together and it never gets old. My favorite weapons are the guitar and the frying pan.”
Sound off, geeks! What video games are you playing lately that’s got you firmly planted?
