Here’s what I played last week!

  • Elite Dangerous
  • Farming Simulator 19

A little light on variety this week but quality over quantity, ammiright?

I’ve shifted more into Elite over the last week but I’ve also moved FS19 onto my server. I was using the single player campaign to learn more about how some of the machines work and what’s needed to maintain a farm. I set up the server to play on the same farm as my wife but she’s really into Yakuza right now so it’s just me. And that’s okay. It’ll be there if she ever wants to play and that was the point. Yakuza looks fun! I’m going to have to give it a try at some point.

Here’s what I played last week!

  • Farming Simulator 19
  • Gauntlet
  • Planet Coaster
  • Elite Dangerous

Hey Gauntlet with friends is fun. We managed to not rage quit in 3 levels so that’s something!

I fired up Planet Coaster for a little bit to take a look at a couple of packs I got off Humble last week. The Back to the Future and Knight Rider cars look pretty cool! I threw them out at the entrance to Hammer Park… which I haven’t worked on in a long ass time. I need to play the game proper again.

What are you playing?

Heyo! Here’s what I played last week!

  • Teardown
  • Gears 5
  • Farming Simulator 19
  • Hardspace: Shipbreaker

Teardown is a stupid fun, simple game that can have some creative and beautifully destructive moments…

Here’s a behind the scenes moment, I make the playlist throughout the week and just schedule the post for whatever the next Monday is. I’ll absolutely forget what I did last week. I forgot what I did this morning… So I had a whole couple of paragraphs written out for Teardown but I’m starting a new thing instead.

First playlist of the New Year! Holy Cow.

  • Elite Dangerous
  • Gears 5
  • Zelda: Breath of the Wild

I managed to drop in on some friends playing Elite Dangerous for some bounty hunting last week.

I’ve also been playing a lot of Gear 5 with some pals. I’m enjoying it. I’ve gravitated to the mechanic and Jack classes. If you give me enough power as a mechanic, I’ll litter the arena with turrets and barriers.

Last playlist of the year. Man. It’s been a weird one.

I know I’ve been pretty lazy in updating the past month or so. It’s been a confluence of several things but mostly I have a problem with laziness. Anyway…. here’s what I played last week.

  • Elite Dangerous (just enough to collect some Arx)
  • Dead by Daylight (just enough to collect some blood points)
  • Jackbox games with friends
  • Zelda: Breath of the Wild

I’ve been playing the hell out of BotW the past 2 or 3 weeks. I’ve had it for the longest time and never really got it any further than The Great Plateau. I know I still have a lot more to go, but I’m having fun with it. It’s really a great game.

Playlist 11/16/2020

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.

Playlist 10/26/2020

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.

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.

Playlist 09/21/2020

  • Elite Dangerous
  • Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020
  • Jedi: Fallen Order

Mandalorian Season 2 is coming and I’ve seen some folks draw some lines from Fallen Order to the trailer. I’ve wanted to play it for a while and with more Star Wars on the horizon, I figure, why not more Star Wars! What’s more, I was able to pick it up for pretty cheap from Epic.

Like 2 seconds into the game and I love it
