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.
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.
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.
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?
As we wrap up the weekend, I'm curious what games you all are playing.
Here's my list:
We blew up the meteor tonight! I have a video and write-up coming tomorrow. It was awesome to see this feature play out even cooler than we expected. Many of you have asked me whether or not this means the game has ended. Nope! In fact, shortly after the meteor blew up people went on talking about what they were building next.
Our server will likely stay up and as-is for a little while. We may add mods or restart the world (bigger this time) with mods or simply keep it vanilla.
Deep Rock Galactic is a co-op-centric sci-fi FPS that just came out into early access. DRG features a group of awesome dwarves in a 100% full-destructible and procedurally-generated world.
Here are the key features:
Before I jump into a quick explanation of how the game works, and a cool story from this evening's session, you can watch the video below to get a feel for what a mission is like. This is Graev and I playing online tonight.
