@ KarlSten: I think the idea is that you also describe Hellpoint a bit and say what you think of it so far for the benefit of other posters who may be interested. There is a free Hellpoint stand-alone story/chapter/sequel free on Steam at the moment if anyone wants to dip their toe into that gameworld, but it doesn't really appeal to me and so I cannot say anything more.

Came across Last Epoch and whilst still in beta mode (early access via Steam) I'm quite hooked atm. If you like Hack & Slash games (Diablo, Path of Exile, Wolcen, Grim Dawn etc.) you may want tot check it out.

Steam aren't doing Last Epoch any favours. Although it is a single player game, it gets filtered out as if a multiplayer game if players set their preferences to exclude purely multiplayer games. :?

I recently noticed that Aragami 2 is coming up on steam at the end of summer.
I really liked the first game, and ran through it again recently. I highly recommend it if you like stealth games with a nice story.

I'm very eager to see what they came up with for the second title.
Humans are deuterostomes, which means that when they develop in the womb the first opening they develop is the anus.
This means that at one point you were nothing but an asshole.

Some people never develop beyond this stage.

Highfleet.

The game cant be put in exact category since it is a mix of genres. You are fighting in a civil war in a future where an event you as player are not told much about much of know society and accumulated historic knowledge is gone.

It is a wargaming game since you are leading a group of ships which each of them has a function in your task force either solely in strategic sense like missile launching ships or tankers or in battle screen as air superiority airships. There is signal intelligence, radar, ecm, etc. On other hand it is a roguelike game often compared to FTL where you cant save where you want but are expected to restart the campaign if you find yourself in a impossible position. Controls are bit off and can mean different things on same screen (like RMB), display resolution is fixed, you cant change control keys and frequent flashing is epilepsy inducing.
But still the game has piqued my interest.

Anyone played Orcs Must Die 3?

I played quite a bit of OMD2 back in the days, and I remembered the multiplayer servers were notoriously unstable. I'd like to know if they fixed this for the 3rd game.

If anyone is iinterested, there is a neat game called Lifeslide coming out. you control a paper plane, and its coming out on August 6th. Thee is a 30 minute demo on steam.

Music is awesome, if you like flight sims (it supports joypad and keyboard. the full game will feature an endless mode (confirmed by the dev) I will certainly be picking it up when its comes out. already impressed by the quality of the demo.

As usual I'm getting around to play games that every one else played years ago. Just started Oblivion and have Skyrim to play after. (Bought in a Steam sales).

If playing Skyrim there are a few mods I highly recommend you install.

Achievements Mods Enabler
For some reason, Bethesda turns off the achievements in steam if you install a mod this turns that feature off and allows you to install mods and get the achievements, of course if you don't care about the achievements you don't need to install it.

Unofficial Skyrim Special Edition Patch
This mod is a must install, as the game is buggy as hell and with it being Bethesda and for some insane reason they take pride in not fixing bugs in their games, and that includes any game breaking bugs. This mod fixes a lot of the bugs. Of course, if you don't have the previous mod installed, this mod will turn off all of the achievements in the game.

Unread Books Glow SSE
There are a lot of books in the game and more than one copy of each book, while there is no way to know if you have read a book or not. Some books start quests, while others will give you a boost to certain stats, and some tell you parts of the story of quests and are pretty easy to miss. This mod lights up any books you have not read, once you have read them they go back to looking normal, it's not an essential mod, but it makes things a lot more easier in game. And helps you not miss out on books.

There are plenty of other mods of course, but I recommend these three, they don't change the game in any way apart from fixing bugs and a quality of life feature. One other point, these are for the SSE edition not the original, to be honest there is not much difference between the two version, just some graphical tweeks I think, because Bethesda never fixes bugs.
Stay at home, stay inside but most importantly stay safe.
