>what games I play
The relative recent games I played is these: Spellcross, Digimon World 1, Unreal Gold, City of Heroes, Sexy Beach 3 and GMod.
I have 238 hours playtime of this game and I like it so far, however I think it was a mistake playing it on hard mode first and not easy mode (it has only 2 difficulty options for english version). The main premise of this game is the earth is overtaken by Other Side [czech naming]/Forces of Darkness [english naming] and it is up to the player to build up a large squad and fighting of creatures like orcs, wolves and elves. It is a turn based tactics game where the player has to manage limited money, you gain money by holding territories and each territories has a limited set of money which you get per turn. Repairing units cost money which makes this game more difficult to play.
What I like the most about this game is that units can be upgraded for better states, you can upgrade armor, engine and weapons as well changing its type as long it is on the same category so for example you can switch out a Marder II for a M113 APC but doing so it will lose all upgrades and no refunds so you have to be careful doing so. The one instance where I had to mass switch units was the campaign where the first mission involved killing alot of undead skeletons which can be only effectively killed with flame throwing units so the remaining infantry units I had I upgraded them flamethrowers so that I can claim this territory.
The campaign I'm currently I am it is called "Fire and Death" and I hit on a another brickwall there (this game has a lot of difficulty spikes). The difficulty was that the first mission I played on this campaign I found myself a whole platoon! of AT Orc's which can really fuck my shit up as those AT Orcs deal great amount of damage both against infantry and vehicle units and they can hit airborne targets too, so I had to resort on a cheese tactics where I used my cannon artillery to finish them off one by one. So after several tries I managed to claim this territory, then on the next mission I found myself stuck with another new types of enemy called I think master or dark elves which are upgraded version of the regular elves that shoot explosive arrows. I bought myself a new artillery unit called the MLRS but since it is at rookie levels it has poor range and poor damage against experienced units.
So I have no idea if I should just finish this game by cheating (there are cheat codes), or I should just start from a new and play on easy modo.
>Digimon World 1
I haven't played this game much because I find it a bit off turning that I have to grind the skills set again once the mon starts to devolve due to unknown factors, I have only 47 ingame hour of this game so far and I didn't managed on any instance to get a champion class mon so I found myself often stuck getting numemon. I might pick it up again soon when I found a better method to play it.
Nothing much to say about it. I look at the multiplayer browser and the only interesting server I found so far is a server which has a custom RPG mod which plays when alone fairly nice but as soon a higher leveled player joins then its almost impossible killing the monsters because the modder made all weapons inaccurate as hell. Not even the sniper rifle is useful anymore for its intended role. I don't play on other servers because I don't like the vanilla weapons much, there was also another good mod called knifee.u which has a nice selection of firearms but nobody host it sadly.
>City of Heroes
This game has several private servers and the one I'm in currently is hosted by thunderspy, the amount of players during European hours is very low so it can be hard to form a team. Combat wise there is nothing much home to write about, the class I'm using is Assault Rifles+Devices which according to other player is a good set so I'm glad to know I didn't screwed myself over with that as I'm on Level 50 already now (maximum level). So for how the combat plays out well there are several different types of mobs to fight off against and they are always grouped either regular mobs or lieutenant mob + regular mob. On some missions elite boss shows up and this is where I often hit a brickwall there as the elite boss does way more damage then I can do despite blasters are made for maximum damage per second.
So in order to unlock the incarnations experience I had to do the ouroboro missions which was quite tough and one particular missions I had to ask for help but while I was playing this mission my internet crapped itself and I couldn't rejoin the mission, some days later when I found the guy that helped me out I apologized to him that my internet crapped itself.
>Sexy Beach 3
It is a hentai game where the player can pick right off the start several girls located on a single small island, before the player can get to actually fugg the girls he has to go on several dates with the girl to increase the "love" score, though how exactly this variable gets increased I don't know, what I do know however that when the love variable is between 3-4 then the player can fugg the girl but only during night first at the hotel only then on all the locations and when the variable is 5 then he can fugg her anytime. It's a fairly alright game for what it is I guess.
for this damn game hoping I would be able to fulfill my vehicle building autism, though the first time I got it I just fucked around and didn't made any useful contraptions and later I played this game again where my first goal was to build a crude car and I failed badly at that because whenever I try to attach the wheels with wiring setup and adding thrusters then the car either goes full bonkers or it has very poor terrain capabilities. So on my 3rd car that I build it was slightly more stable but it was still pretty terrible driving it, so my next goal was to build a manned gun turret which worked a bit better but the gun was not stabilized so it was very difficult to hit moving targets.
So far from all the games I enjoyed the most was GMod despite its very janky physics engine.
>what you've been finding around the net
I haven't found anything interesting on the internet, at least none that I can recall right off the bat.
> and what projects you work on.
I have worked on several projects in oldest first: Panzerstahl (Total Annihilation: Spring), Microtank (Zandronum later GZDoom), Yeltsin RPG (broken, tkinter), Reaktor manager (tkinter), ARWM (Factorio), Fer Char 2D (Godot), AA Defence (Godot). I'll write those more on the next post.
>Also get fresh air often, that'll do something.
You're right, I've been skipping my walking too much as of lately, I should be doing it more often.
Thanks. In a way having so much free time to use the computer is pretty nice but around the same time its easy to get distracted and procrastinating a lot.
