Started Prey yesterday, bought it a while ago but there was a bug that didnt allow controller support, now that its fixed I am finally playing it. So far it is a lot of fun, great atmosphere, and cool story. Im only about 2 and ahalf hours in but liking it so far.

Also I'm playing tower 57, a twin stick shooter on steam. Its fun and I'll probably be done with it by the end of the day.

Awesome. I love that game so much. I dropped 120+ hours into it and still revisit it from time-to-time. It’s just so good, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Coaster building is easier, the camera is a lot better (still locked at an isometric view but you can rotate it much easier though there are steam workshop mods that remove camera limitations I think), customization is way easier so you can build some pretty unique things without much effort, the lighting is also great and you can choose day or night (some lit rides look really cool at night), landscaping is way easier and a lot cheaper so it's actually viable to build giant lakes or mountains (or tear them down) if you want.

My favorite addition is the visualizer so you can troubleshoot your parks problems directly. It puts a filter over the park that can show you where the hungriest guests are, where your crappy scenery is ruining guest immersion, where rain-cover is, and a bunch of other little things. It really helps in planning out your park and figuring out your strategy. It takes out a lot of the guesswork of the older games.

The biggest change gameplay wise is that your stores need to be stocked, but guests don't like seeing people hauling supplies around the park, so you have to figure out ways of keeping your shops supplied without ruining the magic for people.

Sounds pretty sweet. The old games could be very obtuse sometimes. Also I hated landscaping and decorating because it always seemed like a waste of money and time. Seems they've made plenty of improvements for quality of life as well as new features.

I binged it for like 10+ hours somedays, that doesn't always happen. Pure magical game.

@pook: I'm guessing you mean Arkane Prey... which is amazing! Lovely Dead Space / System Shock vibes. And it had some level designers from the original Deus Ex. I don't think it beats the Dishonored games for me, but I loved it.

How many games have introduced so many different elements into the formula time and again... Seriously.


I got 1st over the weekend. Felt like a boss.


Good lord I suck at Tetris. Felt good to get above #50.


I won't say I'm good at Tetris. But I won't say I'm bad at Tetris.

Well after recording a new episode for our channel this week, I got the itch and dived right into

I had played through the first area already and didnt think too much of it, but watching my buddy play for our recordings made me want to play. I've put in maybe six hours in the last two days, not sure how deep into the game I am. I dont feel like I've seen even half of this world.
