Waiting for Bioshock 1 remastered to download. If that doesn't hold my interest maybe Dragon Age Inquisition.

This evening I thought I'd fire up Cities Skylines again but I can't get the dams to work :(

I haven't played a game in... a long time. I dunno what's happening to me in that respect. :(

I played a little bit of Prison Architect awhile back ago and I played some of the new Early Access "The Spatials: Galactology" which I highly recommend to any sci-fi gamer. It's loaded with all sorts of fun space-station building/management features, and promises to be a great game. (The devs gave it away for free to previous owners of "The Spatials" (A good game in its own right) and that's how I got it.)

I really want to get back into playing at least a few games, now and then. I've been doing a bit more with 3D work as a hobby, so I may have invested more creative spirit in that than in gaming, lately. I dunno... I still find it troubling, if you can believe it. Withdrawing from activities one used to find frequently enjoyable is a sign of depression, which I've probably got a bit of too. :)

Just completed Saints Row the Third for the second time. Not sure what I'll move onto next...my broadband is getting upgraded next Tuesday so I don't want to start any downloads until that's in place, so it'll have to be something that's already installed on my PC. Might have another game of GC3 or Civ5...

Similar feelings here. :wink:

I play mainly Elite Dangerous, but it's only about a couple of hours a week, It seems to take me an age to complete anything, and waiting for the servers to update and display missions etc. is getting me frustrated...more than it should do I think, so perhaps I should put that game aside for now...(for my own sanity :D ). I sometimes dip into 'Age of Mythology' or 'Civ V' now and again, for a quick blast, but I don't get the same fun with games as I used too, at the moment.

Off topic...sorta....I'm also trying to get back into hobbies I once enjoyed, photography for example. I've just splashed out on a new DSLR camera, great!....BUT!...I went to print off some photo's yesterday...AND...my printer stopped working, dead as a dodo, so it looks like I'm going to have to buy a new one. Two steps forward...one step back...(or so it seems).

I'm turning into a 'Victor Meldrew'...&*%&*$ unbelievable! :D

Mainly Squad and I can't see myself switching to any other "main game" anytime soon. It simply is very good and depending on who you play with every round feels different.

Other than that, a bit of everything really. I slapped a bunch of mods on Fallout 4 and now it plays really well. Also play a bit of Stellaris, Hearts of Iron 4, Rimworld and Naval Action.
Laugh and the world laughs with you,
Weep, and you weep alone;

But has trouble enough of its own.

I'm holding off on Stellaris until they release the Heinlein patch in October, because that's supposed to make some fairly major changes to how things work in the game.

How is the optimization these days? I bought the game when it first launched to support it's development, so apart from about 20 hours in game back then, i haven't played it since, as i thought i would wait to see how it develops.

Back OT - Currently playing world of warships at the moment, as i can either drop in for an hour or two, or play as little as 15-20 mins, it scratches that casual itch. For a game to lose myself in, i'm hammering Rimworld - Just got 9 colonists safe on a dead is dead game, i daren't load it up sometimes :D

A bit of Skyrim (went back to it after a long pause). Entertaining enough but I'd forgotten about the random CTDs so quick-save ftw.

A bit of Xcom Apocalypse which is still brilliant imho. Started afresh on superhuman and just about surviving the early game.

A bit of Albion Prelude because I hadn't got around to it before and felt it was time I did - not sure I'm ready though.

And I also will have another look at Stellaris once the next patch comes out.

1# Skyrim again after a break (was a nightmare to get all mods up-to-date and running).

2# Homeworld Remastered (besides the eye-candy quite a disappointment)

3# Diablo 3 (finished season 7 some weeks ago)

4# Age of Conan (still my "main" game)

Got Stellaris on my Amazon wish list ;-)
