Off-Topic Fridays: What Else Are You Playing?

Check out your local hobby shop or comic store. Last time I was in Stockholm, SF Bookstore was doing 1 shots and multiple different sessions.

It’s a really cool place, if you’re ever in Stockholm, I’d recommend it. Head down to the old town :wink:

You could also just check (Roll20.net). See if you can find a group on there to run with via discord or something. It’s also a lot cheaper as everything is on the site and you don’t need to buy dice and stuff.

I watched Funhaus play this and it looked like a lot of fun.

I’ll try it thanks. :grinning:
Question for developer: do you like 40k universe? Or just the fantasy one?(I prefer 40k for example) Did you play any games of that universe? . I played a lot on Warhammer 40k: spacemarine, the best one of the series on my opinion.
I liked Dawn of War (only the first) too. I bought even Warhammer 40k Deathwing Space Hulk, but i dont like it too much, it has so much wasted potential.

For Honor, a little bit of Steep to feed my SSX3 memories, Overwatch only with my friends, picked up Destiny 2 again recently, getting ready for when it goes free to play with friends.

Otherwise I’m still interested in MHW, and every 3-4 months I get back into GW2 to continue the living world story :smiley:

And on tabletop games topic, I’m GM with my own V1-V2 mix of Warhammer fantasy, lot of fun everytime :slight_smile:

I enjoyed Space Marine and the first two DoW games. I just installed Mechanicus last week and will give that a go soon, I heard good things :smiley:

Total War Warhammer, They Are Billions (just beat the campaign, can’t recommend it enough), Fallout 4, Graveyard Keeper (so much fun to goof around in), and D&D.

D&D takes up pretty much half of my free-time every week! I run a few campaigns for friends and about once a month one of my friends will run a Cyberpunk 2020 game. Personally, I think everyone should play D&D… it teaches you so much about people, socializing, how to have fun without ruining someone else’s good-time, and how to create something cool that isn’t a Rogue with a troubled past, I grew up on the streets and I’m out for myself, brooding in the corner of the bar. Did I mention how edgey I am? Edge-lord edge-lord edge-lord edge-lord for a main character :stuck_out_tongue:

I get terrible flashbacks to They Are Billions. Quality game that I am absolutely no good at.

I stopped playing The Division 2 some time before the raids were released (lack of meaningful content). How is it nowadays?

Borderlands full completion is pretty fun (don’t know about pre-sequel) but please reconsider doing all achievements for Bl1’s claptrap DLC and coliseum because that profanity will drive you insane.

I love this. Really good use of role-playing and most likely hilarious (for them) in a DnD setting.

A really good substitute!

Ont: Came back to V2 in time for beta, Borderlands Pre-Sequel on and off and finally finishing off Transistor, which I enjoy more this time around. I purchased it because of how massively impressed I was by the masterpiece Bastion.

I honestly have no idea, at the moment I just do the weekly invasion and bounties for specialization points haven’t even tried the raid, not all that interested until more gear sets are available as none of them fit my play-style at the moment.

Well, I haven’t really found it “grindy” as much as I’ve found it me setting goals for myself. It’s pretty much Stardew Valley in a cute little Medieval Fantasy scenario with… horrifically morbid undertones. If you find Stardew Valley grindy, then you’ll find this as much the same.

At one point you earn the ability to automate certain processes, which is something you can tech towards really early. Spend about 5-6 total hours playing and you can be there… but I faffed around much longer than that doing other stuff :slight_smile: totally worth it, IMO!

I think you can improve :slight_smile: the hardest part about the game is remaining observant… watching for those sneaky little buggers who try to get by your guards when you aren’t looking.

Honestly, though, they made a grueling and difficult game. I don’t blame anyone for not wanting to take on the swarms… but I also encourage everyone to give it a go :smiley:

I’ve been getting into Warhammer 40k. Just the other day I bought the “Dark Imperium” starter pack, and once I muster the courage (and learn how to paint) I am going to take my “army” to a game somewhere in my area and see if I like what’s going on. If I do enjoy it, I will start collecting a more interesting army (while adeptus/heretic astartes are cool, they are too “vanilla” for my taste). Astra Militarum and Necrons are the two biggest contenders for me, with Genestealer Cults as a runner-up.

If anyone has any recommendations for how to get started (especially with the social aspects, I have extreme social anxiety and even going to the big gaming store and buying the starter pack was hard enough), that would be much appreciated! Vermintide is great and I will always play it, but I’ve come to learn that video games as a hobby leaves much to be desired, and when one spends all of their spare time playing them it blackens the soul and darkens the mood.

Wait, DnD teaching people to not go for the clichéd and/or optimal approach? That’s new… (Okay, yeah, I know that there is a reasonably extensive system for backgrounds in the fifth edition. I still think the approach is still too mechanical, and doesn’t offer much tools to role-play after character creation. At least it’s gotten rid of most of the annoying number-crunching; nowadays it actually resembles something I can honestly recommend for newcomers.)

As an add-on, this weekend’s board games ended up being Splendor (in which I kicked arse), Cacao, Race for the Galaxy (in which I got my arse kicked) and Unearth.

I dunno, I made a pretty edgy chaotic Grave Knight. :joy: The DM made the terrible mistake of giving me a wand of wonder from Acererak. He randomized it with all kinds different spells and things. So far I’ve fireballed an inn, killing our quest givers and a lot of civilians. Helped drop a wizards egg onto a city killing around 30,000 people, authorities are still sifting through the wreckage for bodies… And we now have nearly every bounty hunter in the world after us. As well as the revenant of a old party member I killed for trying to stop me from using the wand of wonder. Needless to say, things are going great and I started my own squad, the Chaos Squad. lol

Ooh, Splendor is a good one. Can definitely vouch for that one, even if there’s ample opportunity for broken friendships (and/or broken noses).

W- wizards lay eggs?

And they explode with enough force to destroy an entire city, killing thousands?

Looks nervously at Sienna

Sounds like I’m going to have to give Splendor a whirl, sometime!

Wizards do all sorts of weird stuff in every universe. In D&D there’s a brood of Red Dragons so concerned with the powers of illusion wizards (because an illusion wizard can decide which parts of reality are real, which parts of an illusion are real, and which parts of reality are an illusion) that they’ve stopped warring against mortality to study them an prevent the collapse of reality via someone making too many eggs :stuck_out_tongue:

I have been playing a lot of Vermintide 1 and Arma 3 lately on a Invade and Annex server and have been having a pretty good time of it so far.
