As we wrap up the weekend, I'm curious what games you all are playing.Here's my list:ECOWe blew up the meteor tonight! I have a video and write-up coming tomorrow. It…
It’s the weekend again… crazy how fast that came. Unfortunately, Monday always seems to come that much faster which means it’s time to get in the gaming while there’s time!
I’m playing a couple of solid games this weekend.
Dragon Quest Builders on Nintendo Switch
DQB is such a phenomenal game. I’m loving the sandbox with a hint of being guided toward objectives. This is one of those games where my wife will randomly ask if we can play it tonight. Right now we’re still in the first chapter, but we’re spending a good amount of time gathering resources and making a neat city. We’re focusing on building rooms and function with moderate aesthetic appeal.
There are so many neat things to craft and ways to explore the world. So much of the game is still very new to us, so there’s a heavy amount and emphasis on exploration and ‘figuring things out’ which definitely adds to our enjoyment.
As the weekend comes to a close here at the — almost literal — 11th hour, I’m curious to hear about the games YOU played. I think my time was quite obviously spent in ECO, which is an immersive and realistic sandbox building/surviving game. The Keen and Graev Community has our very own server that we actively play on and maintain, which has been the crucial component of how much fun I’ve been having.
Before we get to what we played this weekend, let's remember there are some cool games coming out this week: ECO and Dragon Quest Builders (Switch). I'm glad to have…
What are you guys playing this weekend?
I’m playing a lot of Skyrim on the Switch. I’ve been leveling a warrior-type using 1h and block. Having not played Skyrim for years, I wasn’t aware of so many of the little changes. The biggest change is to Smithing. My goal was the level up Smithing and craft some pretty epic items. Turns out, it’s a little more difficult now. Smithing in Skyrim now works off the value of the item. From what I read, the best ratio of resources to skill gains comes from making ‘gold rings’, but I’m also reading some info about Dwarven Smithing. Looking for some advice here.
If I haven’t spent more money rebuying games in the past year than I’ve spent on new games then it has to be really, really close.
There’s a really big trend in the past few years toward re-releasing or remastering past games. Even the most recent Nintendo Direct was all about re-releasing games like Dark Souls, and they also recently released Skyrim (which itself has had numerous releases). Nintendo is leading this phenom with their NES and SNES classic systems and console tempting lots of games to release again.
This weekend I’m looking forward to having some time to relax and invest in some games. This week was marred by food poisoning (or something unpleasant…) and a ton of client work. I’m ready for some R&R.
I’ll be clocking time in Skyrim for Switch, finishing up an Assassin’s Creed 2 play-through with my wife, and perhaps looking at getting We are Billions.
On the West Coast of the U.S. we have approximately 8 hours until 2018. That's PLENTY of time to get in some games! What are you playing? If you're not…
The majority of my Christmas presents are usually related to video games, but every year I receive a few neat geeky gifts from my wife or my parents that always…
