What Did You Play This Weekend?

This weekend was short on the games, but the time I did get in was pretty good. I ended up driving a lot yesterday (about 9 hours) which ate up a lot of game time. That’s also why today there will be a double posting instead of what I was planning to publish yesterday.

Deep Rock Galactic

I was able to continue playing Deep Rock Galactic with some randoms while Graev was busy. I decided to try more of the Digger class, originally thinking it was lackluster when compared to the other class options. My opinion reversed when my fellow dwarves were all rather inept at using Engineer platforms or carving their own paths. The digger just bust through rocks and forge a beautiful tunnel in seconds — even to the bottom of a major cavern — providing the entire team a clear path to progress.

Dragon Quest Builders

Most of my time playing was spent in Dragon Quest Builders on the Switch. My wife and I are doing this play-through together. She’s really into the exploration, so she pushes me to explore the nooks and crannies of the map. I’m always reluctant, then end up being grateful she pushed me to look around because we find so many neat things to contribute to our city. Right now we’re in the second chapter, and we have a really cool city going.

Leaving our first city behind was rough. I felt attached to the characters and buildings, even though in reality the place was ugly. Our second city is much more practical, and I even have a nice room elevated over the city with a cool view. The surrounding terrain is ugly, though, and I hop Chapter 3 brings a nicer locale.

Next Weekend…

I’m excited for EverQuest on the Coirnav server. I always think I won’t miss MMOs until I haven’t played one. Then I get the itch so strongly I can’t think of anything else.

Anything fun you’re playing this weekend or planning to play soon?

  • Warframe 🙂

    I’ve gotten back into ‘Hyper Heroes’ on my phone, as well. I put at least 100+ hours into a year or two ago, and felt like seeing what changed.

    Other than that, not much. I just enjoy the grind (new weapons, frames, etc) in Warframe that its hard for me to pull away from it and play anything else.

  • Chroma Squad, which is great fun and quite amusing.

    It can be a bit frustrating as the order of operations and definitions behind game mechanics (like for Director instructions, which give give you greater rewards if you complete those scenario objectives) aren’t always obvious, so you can end up replaying the scenarios more than one might desire just to get it right.

    Overall, an A grade, or for social media people, 5/5 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂


    • Also finally picked up XCOM 2: War of the Chosen DLC as it is on sale (until tomorrow), but I basically just re-played the intro, so I don’t have an appreciation for it yet.
