Dark souls 2 releasing a GOTY type edition, with better graphics and some tweaks, which is cool, but also a bit bs that it's not a free patch if you bought the game.
Bought the season pass for evolve, even though $35 for dlc is bullshit as well, but can't really do anything about it.

Mainly been playing Turbo Dismount lately, great fun:

Also tried the Road Redemption early access. Does pretty well to bring back the spirit of Road Rash, but with far more brutal weapons.

^ yeeeaaahhh that game's SO GOOD

Only ever played locally though, never single player or online. Same-screen with drinks is where that game is at!!
Only annoying thing is that the 'throw your sword and just keep running/ jumping them' strategy is the best strategy, unless there's a good counter that we never found

I've been trying to play multiplayer but have heard that there's a lot of complaints about that feature not really working. I read the creator thinks it's meant for samescreen gaming.

I don't know about how successful that technique would be once you know what to expect! the little move variations are subtle but can be useful. I like playing dead near a sword and cartwheeling up and lunging it's pretty efficient!

Once you pick up momentum it's really hard for someone to counter your jump or jump and kick down combination at the right time, even when you know it's coming. And then you can clear screens in no time. Especially since you run faster without a sword.

Apparently online latency just isn't quick enough for the game, personally I think he should have stuck to his guns and just not put online in, but the internet had the biggest cry and knew best, as always. Again, haven't tried it though, could be better than I've heard? Have you been getting destroyed by l33t people who only play that game, forver, or do you have some online matches that feel good?

Watched videos of people playing, looked cool.
Picked up a second controller and Diablo 3 so I can couch coop with the girlfriend, it's pretty good.

^this. only just killed the first big monster and done 1-2 sidequests, but it feels good. True to the witcher style of making you feel like you need to be careful how you use your skill points, but a lot of streamlining, and the open world feels pretty good so far

Been playing lots of Road Redemption since it'll be out of early access on Steam soon. Also a bit of Road Rash II for comparison.

Gotta love the car rain mode:

Oh that looks fucking sweet played a shit load of Road Rash back in the day.

I'm currently playing Satellite Reign, can't quite bring myself to ditch it yet as I looked forward to it for so long but the AI is really bad, a lot of the gameplay doesn't make any sense and the animations are jumpy. It just doesn't feel finished. Disappointing.

^ thanks Jamal!

I've been playing Resident Evil Revelations 2, been really warming up to this one, the end gets much better than the slow start.
Also Stardew Valley which is the best game. Feels like it's straight out of the 90's, without being as janky as those games actually feel when you revisit them now. Good shit.

It's damn fun, lots of hours to be had from it already. There's a lot of enemies to smack, and switching weapons is a bit distracting. Difficulty gets quite steep, but you earn XP and can come back stronger each time. Until finally completing the campaign, which unlocks a 2nd more advanced one. All of which can be played with up to 4 players on split screen, though haven't tried that yet. Online multiplayer is still in the works. Might get to test if that's any good before the proper release.

It's not as intense as being on a faster bike in Road Rash, but can be about as hilarious. Especially when the cars are causing pileups getting airtime off hills, and struggling to navigate sharp bends. Fences and things are partially destructible, ie. shades of FlatOut 2 / Ultimate Carnage (another brilliant game which Road Rashers would love).
