Unless your own was hitting the uninstall button... I think this might fit better into the "how'd you last die" thread.

Elite Dangerous.

Found a location that, while it is 160000 out from the star at which it is located (about a 10m trip), gives out 5-6 missions every time to go kill the same pirates one system over, each of which pays between 1-5 million.

Going to finish out my missions tonight for a cool 15-20 million total.

Played 20XX we have not played in a few months, but a new character seemed like a good time to pick it up again.  Co-Op. I'm playing Nina, friend is playing the new whip person, Daily challenge.

Early on we see some prototype labs, I take a prototype upgrade that means I can't heal from pickups, but I fully heal after every boss.  Friend laughs at me for picking it.  We finish a stage, impressed by the apparent genius of my choice, he picks a prototype upgrade too.  He now can't attack or use boss weapons, but he has every minion bit in the game.  We continue on I pick up the 3x charge shot and the helmet that lets you fire 2 charge shots at once, and we're pumping basic attack power, since it buffs both my shots and his minions.

We get farther than we ever got, My friend is killing things simply by existing and is able to safely pick up ALL the health pickups, since I can't use them.  I'm hitting for over 100 damage with a charge shot (twice per charge to boot) I'm basically 2 shotting bosses, friend is doing the damage on the bosses I have difficulty reaching including it turns out, the last boss, as I struggled with the platforming.

We beat the game.   I didn't know it was possible, we beat the game.  We check the highscores and... we are not on it... friend assumes it was because we played through midnight and maybe it will be on tomorrow's.

20XX Daily Challenge

EDIT: Indeed we are on the one for the 13th  Ranked 2nd worldwide in both score and time unless someone else does better today.  Though for some reason the score pageis bugged to list the rankings inverted, and claims we were both playing Hawk

Was pleasantly surprised with the results of a long battle in Aurora with some ancient robots, one of the enemy ships wasn't destroyed. Instead its engines were all blown out and its weapons were dry, a sitting duck in other words, perfect practice for marines.

I quickly (well quickly for a poor troop transport being 4 days picking up the marines and then another four loading them into dropships) dispatched a light assault carrier to capture the stricken ship. It went well although the ship seems glitched and thinks its not at port for shore leave and I now have a shiny old alien warship that has no ammo and a questionable point defence turret but does have ECM and a medium range sensor.

Discovered how to run the game at more than single-digit frames-per-second. Muuuch better.

Returned to KSP to refine the SSTO design that I had been working on before. Aside from small tweaks to reduce weight and (hopefully) make the plane more aerodynamic, I decided to make a variation of the plane which isn't a single-stage ship like the normal one, but instead launched with two liquid-fuel boosters on the plane's tummy, containing two whiplash engines and doubling as drop tanks, allowing the plane to have well over 1000 more DeltaV when it reaches orbit. The rest of the mission after I accomplished this was simply me repeating the other couple of tests that I did forever ago, where I dropped some cargo off at the Mun in the form of a small rover, only this time instead of heading straight home I decided to aerobrake in Kerbin's atmosphere in order to return to low orbit, drop off some sciency shit at my space station, and then return home for realsies. Being able to do missions like these and then land back on the runway with basically all of the ship intact is still very satisfying.
