    JUst finished Starcrawlers, inde small game, dungeon crawler meat turn based jrpg style fights in scifi kinda cyberpunkish style. Actually was fun even through pretty repetetive at the end. Especially hacking was boring as fuck.
    Bought it for like 5 euro so at that price - worth it

    I bought it in a sale but sadly won't run in ultrawide screen despite throwing all sorts of fix things at it. Looks good fun.

    just completed The Order 1886 which was a really good looking game for a PS4 release title, but it was just too damn short.

    Nier: Automata is a masterpiece.

    That is all.

    yes!

    Surviving Mars: green Planet is my curent hook. It's a bit vague to begin with, but i'm about to build a splinter colony now my first 2-domes + light industry is ticking along nicely, adn my first baby is born. I have enough spare rockets to drop enough resources i think to drop a dome on top of remote metal deposits and fill my supply chain, though shipping it back and forth could get interesting. it's a fun little game though, and works better now there's an endgame.

    How different is it from base Surviving Mars? I played it during free weekend and was unimpressed.

    i'm not really sure as i never played the bae game. buzz on the internet suggests that is's a huge improvement as there is now a reason beyond "build base collect resources build base" to be on mars on the first place, eg to terraform it. It's good enough to be idle entertainment at the moment. not sure i'll carry it too far.

    The base game also got some new features with the current Armstrong patch. Off the top of my head:
    - Large dumping site
    - Landscaping (flaten terrain, build ramp, small and large rock piles)
    - Research tree now is organized in columns instead of rows. Doesn't seem too impressive, but not the direction of your mouse scroll reflects the actual direction of the screen scroll

    I just got Green Planet, but haven't played a game yet. But from watching vids, to me it looked liked planetary anomalies now have a higher chance to fail/require you to do/spent x to recover rocket + payload. Green Planet also comes with a new vehicle (Dozer) specialized in landscaping. It does just this, nothing else. Drones do it otherwise, but ofc that means they don't do the logistics part in that time.

    As oyu said, this game - like most base/colony-only builders, implies that the player simply enjoys the building for the sake of building, i.e. its not a means to something else (confilct). Even the terraforming part mainly consists of new buildings.

    Ac and iracing <- these are always on the list.
    Wanting to get into endurance races, but I lack the time needed, the speed expected and the teammates required.
    I have some fast friends, but with the cost of Iracing I can't bring myself to try to convince them to try it.
    Oh well. I guess I am sticking ti IMSA for the time being.

    Mordhau. It's so damn good. Simplistic but amazing.

    I pulled the trigger on my splinter colony together. A few supply-pods full of metals, a pre-fab dome and a mass drop of supply pods full of metals later and we are funneling colonists into domes with little or no redundancy, all to exploit a metal deposit.
    What a great experience

    Grim Dawn on free weekend was good enough that I bought it. Not got very far yet but pretty hooked, not played a classic ARPG for ages. Game has 4-player co-op which sounds great - hit me up if anyone's playing it.

    Honestly, with the cost of iRacing you're better off going to drive real life GoKarts, doing 60mph in a thing that's glued to the road and with almost zero safeties is a lot more adrenaline inducing and satisfying when shaving seconds off the lap times

    The game currently eating way, way too many hours is Rule the Waves 2, the recently released sequel to Rule the Waves, a wargame with a tiny staff and not even sold on steam. The graphics basically don't exist, being MS paint and windows 3.1 level of advanced and there are enough tables and spread sheets to delight many an EVE player. Rule the Waves places you as Grand Admiral of a nation of your choice such as German Empire or USA or Japan. In RtW 1 this starts you in 1900 and RtW 2 gives you the option to start in 1920. The game runs on monthly turns where you design ships (in many ways, this is the heart of the game as you determine the size of your ship, its armaments, and armor protection) and build them if you have the money, move ships to duty stations around the globe if you happen to own colonies, and respond to events that randomly pop up and try to manage your tension and prestige; however you are not the one running your nation, you are head of the navy, not the head of state. This being the era it is; your mightiest warships will often be outclassed if not obsolete years before it is completed due to the breakneck pace of technological advances. You can and will influence your nations course, but events can easily slip out of control and war will break out with nations you wish it hadn't (basically war with England or the USA can be very fatal to your navy since their economies will likely dwarf any other nations). You set your nation's research budget to a degree and more importantly set research fields to concentrate on, such as naval guns or ship design or fire control. However, their is some RNG to the process; set your naval guns research to high priority will result in the development of new guns or improved versions of weapons you can already build, but you have no control if you get an improved 6 inch gun for your light cruisers or a new 14 inch gun of inferior quality for your capital ships.

    When war comes you will still have monthly strategic turns with battles that pop up where you and your enemy both have warships. This can be anything from a lone light cruiser intercepting a commerce raider, to a convey escort, to Jutland 2.0 now with more super dreadnaughts. Battles are pause-able real time (although you will make liberal use of the speed up time options) and for the default setting you will control your flagship and any ships in her squadron. Nearby squadrons may also be under your direct control, but the AI will handle more distant forces or if LOS to the flagship is lost for too long other squadrons will drop into AI control, such as at night. You chose headings and speeds; the ships automatically fire upon each other without your input, although you can issue orders for targets if you desire.

    RtW 1 covers 1900 to 1925 with the ability to play until 1950, but the tech tree stops at 1925, although with your research goals you may get new tech quite some time past 1925. RtW 2 on the other hand has the regular game go to 1955, with the option to go to 1970. The biggest change between the games is the introduction of aircraft, aircraft carriers, and air bases in the second game.

    An older, but excellent Let's Play of Rule the Waves is here if you don't mind the rampant anime additions; its still well written and enjoyable. If there is enough interest I might do a Let's Play or even group playthough later this summer once work dies down a bit.
