I've been playing Star Traders: Frontiers lately. It is a space trader simulation where you control the ship, the officers and the crew. You upgrade ship and crew gain experience etc. It is strangely addictive, although with several annoying bugs. Still in EA and on sale in Steam.

Spyro 3 was always my favorite one as a kid, and if you are playing them in order that means you are almost at enter the dragonfly, and it's just as bad as people say it is.

That's disappointing, but more or less what I expected.  And yes, I'm playing them in order after picking the first up for the first time around 6 months ago.  I really hate that I missed these as a kid.

It's too bad that the games after Spyro 3 are disappointing as a whole.  Maybe after the remastered trilogy is released something new and better will be made.

I got Deep Rock Galactic on the Steam Summer Sale and have been playing that. It's a lot of fun figuring out how to identify tunnels and dig out gems and spot those mineral veins, but all of that only takes a few hours, and afterwards there is little progression to incentivize further play. The actual action is engaging for a while, but with just shy of 20 hours played I'm already starting to look for my next game. I paid just $19 at the current sale price, so I consider that a fair ratio of fun to price. And it's still in development, so I may well come back and get some more hours out of it at a later date.

Rock and Stone, to the bone!

I don't usually like ship-centered space games, but this looks... kinda awesome.
I just not long ago wasted a few bucks on FTL which I will probably never pay, though, so I'm probably not gonna step out of my comfort zone in that direction for a while. (Being stony broke helps, haha.)

After selling a bunch of things in my Steam inventory, I had enough wallet money to buy Half-Life 2, and I installed a few mods for good measure.

The Citizen has a few odd things, some of which might be attributable to its age (I keep seeing "Node Graph out of date. Rebuilding... whenever I get a level transition), but it's otherwise pretty fun, and not too hard.

I'm also playing them in order but have kind of slowed down because of how bad enter the dragonfly is, also I got hero's tail recently and it looks really weird to me also it does control the same as any of the others.

one of the steam sales i picked up was the original deus ex game.

im having so much fun being stealthy. i minmaxed into stealth, melee, and hacking/lockpicking.


JC probably stands for John Cena, cuz they can't see me.

Ah yes, the insatiable lust of corn and rice, clearly two of the most erotic foods.

If you liked Deus Ex, you might want to consider some of the other games, like Revision, The Nameless mod, and probably a lot of other mods out there.

If you want some hilarity with your stealth and aren't going for a no kill run, try getting the jumping augmentation and kill people by goomba stomping them from atop buildings.  The leg augmentation helps you to not die in the process.

I've killed a couple of late game "bosses" this way, and I giggled more than I want to admit.

Sadly, I don't think the game really sets you up for lots of opportunities to do this on mooks.

I'm juggling a play-through of Xcom 2 with expansion, Cities: Skylines, a sale acquired Dead Cells, and an obscure MMA booking manager simulator I got in a dollar bundle.

On top of that, I've gotten back into a couple mobile games of varying degrees of monetization

...I've got a short gaming attention span nowadays so I pick up and drop games on a dime.

So, had a funny little experience on SS13 a while back...

The server actually had people on it, which is uncommon, and the round was starting to drag out. Suddenly, pirate event! I spawned in as the captain, and started trying to figure out how to actually play the damn role.

I headed aft to the ship's engine room and started going about setting up the pirate cutter's (horrible, abysmal, torturously bad, shameful) turbine generator.


While I'm fiddling with the pipes trying to get an actually not-awful burn mix going, someone else spawned in as a pirate, ran in, and tried disarming me a couple times. I backed off and said "What's yer problem, ya layabout?". He responded with "I fuck bitches and get money". I was in the act of responding with "Then go and get the station's money ya scabrous dog!" when he continued his self-description with "And now, I fuck you".

He ran at me, knocked me down, and just started strangling me. I was a bit shocked to say the least, as this was highly unexpected behavior from, y'know, a team antagonist.

I tried breaking out of his grip, but as I'm sure many SS13 players know, trying to break out of a chokehold is a ha-ha hail mary. So I just sat there and waited for my second time as a pirate to come to a confusing and abrupt end. For whatever reason though, I didn't seem to be dying.

After a while of this, he chuckled to himself and said "Now I'm the captain!". I was still alive and conscious at this point. I figured I'd just gotten lucky and my cigar somehow had some kind of oxy medication in it, or something.


Apparently, neither of us were familiar with whatever changelog turned all space pirates into skeletons. Skeletons, which don't need to breathe, and thus cannot be strangled.


Suddenly, my resist attempt actually went through and I wriggled out of his grasp! Grabbing the nearest toolbox, I set about cracking his skull wide open with some old-fashioned robusting. His next few outbursts were of the "What-OUPH!", "How di-GAK!" and "Wait!" variety. I kept slamming him with the toolbox until the last spark of life left his body, and then kept smashing a while longer for good measure.

I then grabbed his corpse, opened the turbine ignition chamber, hurled his body inside, shut the door and started the burn. "I don't abide mutiny", I muttered while observing the crisping bones in the burn chamber.

OOC: "Fuck you captain shitstain"

He then apparently tried to adminhelp me because I killed him after he tried to kill me. As you might expect, I was not the one who got banned that day.
