I was finally able to purchase some Steam games on my Wishlist, pretty ecstatic right now~

Currently playing: Voodoo Garden & some of Epistory - Typeing Chroncicles.  I have to say the graphics for Epistory - Typing Chronicles are absolutely breathtaking~ <3

Devil May Cry 5 (PS4)

Beat the first boss in the game, talked more with V.

The Sims 4 (PS4)

My teen Sim, Vivian is finally starting to get noticed in the celebrity world. Still getting A in school and in the Acting Club. Might age her up soon I think.

I tackled the last two trial bosses for the first time in DQ 11, and beat the fifth trial boss in under forty turns on the second try (fight is supposed to be the hardest in DQ 11 because the boss must be beaten in under 50 turns and hits hard).

Devil May Cry 5 (PS4)

Got to play as V for a bit and I have to be honest I think I like his fighting style over Nero's.

Am I the only one who thinks Nero's voice sounds like the Dante from the other DmC game that released a few years ago??

The Sims 4 (PC)

Aged up Vivian and now she's on her way to becoming famous. I have her learning how to sing and might start her on an instrument as well. She's currently doing small gigs and singing in local parks as well as uploading vids to help get a jump on her career.

About to play Minecraft

For me minecraft is one of those classics that never really gets old.  There's so many modes of play that pretty much anyone can get into it too.  Sometime TOO into it.  :D

I wasted a couple hours this morning playing an old (like really really DOS-days old) text RPG game called "Moria".  This is what cutting-edge gaming looked like before GPUs and the 'Net.  Ran pretty well even on a 386.  :D

No, but I did play Dragon's Gate (also on GEnie) before they shut it down.  After that I also ran my own CircleMUD for a while in the early days of the internet.  Fun times, but eventually I had to shut it down due to lack of time to admin it effectively. 

I was also a fan of the early single-player text adventures like Adventure or Zork.  To this day I often install Colossal Cave on my unix/linux systems for the nostalgia factor.

Devil May Cry 5 (PS4)

Found my way back to Urizen and got my butt handed to me again. After being knocked down a demon showed up... don't know who or what it is.

Discovered Dante sleeping on a statue-like thing while playing as Nero. Jumped to playing as Dante for the first time and I think I failed, lol. Found Lady and Trish on the ground and went up against Urizen again.

Been reading up on the latest No Man's Sky news.  Now that I have a system that meets the VR specs I'm kind of looking for a game or app that'll impress me enough to buy some VR gear.  Ironically, this "DOA" game might wind up being the one that actually gets me to take the plunge, especially now that they've got multiplayer working reasonably well.  Of course, Hello has a history to get past so this is definitely an "I'll believe it when I see it" situation.  That said however, I've been following the game's developments for the last couple years and there's a 'tuber that livestreams NMS play that I've periodically been watching.  Murray and crew have released a steady stream of bug fixes and new features since launch that have really turned NMS into an interesting and playable game.  It kind of reminds me of the early Notch/Mojang days of Minecraft in a lot of respects.

Ah, a couple buddies and I were originally so excited for No Man's Sky, it seemed right up our alley. One of them got it immediately at launch but I waited just to be safe, and I'm oh so glad I waited. It does seem like it has become respectable now, but at launch it was outright sad.

I wouldn't say it was sad exactly, but it certainly didn't live up to the hype that preceded its release.  Especially after the E3 demo expectations were so high that some sort of let-down was almost guaranteed.  It wasn't the first time I've felt bad for the people that bought into the hype and pre-ordered.  I wish the industry wouldn't do that sort of thing.  That said, my brother bought it about a month after release* and we had fun with it.  Even at that point it was an ok game.  If they'd released it without so much hype as a Steam style early-access or something along those lines I think everyone would have been fine with it, especially given the support and development that Hello has demonstrated since then.

*Word to the wise: always, ALWAYS, wait for at least the first bug-fix/patch to be released before purchasing any game!  I wish that the gaming public wouldn't continue to be so "generous" (gullible) with their pre-orders.  Why people continue to pay full price to essentially be unpaid beta-testers is beyond me.  This wasn't the first and as long as companies are rewarded for their behavior it won't be the last time something like that happens.

In other news there's a new version of Kerbal Space Program coming out... now that I finally got all my favorite mods working in the current version.  🙄
