Here’s what I played last week:

  • Elite: Dangerous
  • Mars Horizon

Mars Horizon is a lot of fun and I need to give it a full post. You basically control a space agency like NASA or ESA and try to be the most successful. I’m working through my second save as NASA. My ESA save started out strong but ended up taking a turn. So far, as NASA, I’ve been first or second in all the milestones!

Just a reminder that Elite Dangerous is free on the Epic Game store until the 26th! You should pick it up and come play in space with me!

There has been some crazy ass work days the past two weeks but I’ve managed to get a little gaming in. Here’s what I’ve been playing:

  • Elite: Dangerous
  • Dead by Daylight
  • Broforce
  • Sea of Thieves
  • Carrion

Broforce and Carrion are free on Xbox Game Pass. Carrion wasn’t for me but holy crap is Broforce just plain stupid fun.

Elite: Dangerous is owed a mission log, but with work being what it is, I barely had time last week to manage the ending of my pledge to Duval and the acquiring of prismatic shields for my fleet. I bought a ton of them. I have no regrets.

Speaking of regrets… Sea of Thieves is hard to play alone. So if you’re looking for an extra pirate for your crew, hit me up yarr?

Hope you had a great Halloween! I, both, can’t believe it is already November and I can’t believe it’s only November…

I hope you have a plan to vote if you haven’t already!

Here’s what I played last week:

  • Elite: Dangerous
  • The Division 2
  • Age of Empires 2: The Definitive Edition

I saw Age of Empire on Game Pass for PC and got curious. I used to play a lot of AoE back in college. I haven’t given it a lot of time, but it does have me itching to play an RTS more.

Here’s what I played last week:

  • Elite Dangerous
  • The Division 2

Most everyone has been busy with their own stuff but I got enough help to finish the story missions for Division 2 and got access to The Summit. It’s been a lot of fun scaling the floors and mowing down jerks.

Friends got me to floor 10 pretty quick but I’m up to 23 now.

In news other than games, I finished binging Smallville. I used to watch it with my mom when it first aired. It’d been a long while since I’ve seen it. I think it still holds up. Now I’m working through all the movies.

Mission Log 75

I haven’t been posting a ton because there’s not really a lot of news to be had. Two things remain in-progress:

  • Acquisition of Prismatic Shielding
  • Columbia mining operations

The shields just take time. I’ve been working to get my ranking where it needs to be with Aisling Duval and now it’s just a matter of maintaining that rank and waiting out the clock. 2 weeks to go.

It’s proving to be pretty expensive but mostly because I’m impatient. I want to get the ranking done in one session as opposed to waiting for the material buy clock to tick over so I’m paying extra to stock more propaganda to deliver at once.

October is halfway over… wtf?

Here’s what I played last week:

  • Elite: Dangerous
  • Empyrion: Galactic Survival
  • Tom Clancy’s The Division 2

The Division 2 has taken up most of my play time this week. A bunch of my friends are playing through the Warlords of New York expansion and I felt like playing something with people. Elite is great and in the past month I’ve actually been doing some multiplayer stuff on it but the Hammer group is family and I want to hang out with family.

Mission Log 74

Community Goals are back!

I haven’t done anything with them yet and I found out I missed out on getting a new weapon module because of it, but HEY! They’re back! Great.

Hey look at that, I forgot to move this from draft to scheduled!

Here’s what I played last week:

  • Elite: Dangerous
  • Empyrion: Galactic Survival

Short list this week! My Elite playing has ramped up a good bit to help other folks get things like Engineers and Guardian components unlocked. Empyrion is proving to be a really fun combination of a bunch of different things that I like. The best comparison I can come up with is Space Engineers, though I’m not sure how deep the crafting/programming is yet. I’ll try to get a post with some photos written up so you can see what it’s like.

I haven’t played much of Star Wars Squadrons. I’ve had trouble adapting to the flight model using a HOTAS and to be honest, I wanted to play it with friends but no one seems to be into it for various reasons. So we’ll see what comes of it. I’m hoping for some polishing patches to keep rolling in.

Here’s what I’ve been playing!

  • Elite Dangerous
  • No Man’s Sky
  • Star Wars: Squadrons
  • Shapes.io

Squadrons may need to wait till the first patch. It’s fun enough but I feel like it’s hitting my GPU pretty hard. Harder than it should be. I dunno. Shapes.io is a factory game that scares me. I don’t think I’m smart enough to play it.

No Man’s Log 1

I’ve started playing No Man’s Sky again and it’s feeling pretty good. This has been on my back burner for a long while now but when I noticed some friends playing it, I thought, hey. I’ll jump in too.

I played this a lot at launch on PS4 and walked away, but not because I didn’t like the game. I just drifted to something else. I think I burned myself out on it too quick. But that was way back before they started releasing the content that started turning the game into what they actually wanted to have at launch.
