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).

Finished Axiom Verge recently and it was pretty rad. Now getting back into Bloodborne after a bigass break.

Maaan Metroid is my fav series but have never played Metroid 2. Really need to get AM2R.

Speaking of, playing Metro Redux at the mo. Never played either before. Liking 2033 - getting a wee bit of a metroid vibe from the atmosphere.

I've been playing a bit of Intrusion 2 in my spare time. It's basically metal slug but made by Russian. Would recommend

Not really, most of my friends and my clan are on PS4. I've got a 3.2 i7 w/ 64GB Ram and 2x 1070s at work so I might grab a copy for PC (it's only $10) and teach you a lesson for your sass on my lunch break deez!

How're you enjoying the mediocre 'upgrade'?

Not full of hate for this, once the mods come out for it and make use of the 64bitness it's going to be great, but fuck, they really couldn't be bothered upgrading even a single tiny thing while they were at it huh. I couldn't play without SkyUI anymore so I don't really have a choice anyway.
Nice of them to give it away for free to most peeps too

ummm the upgrade is pretty meh if you were already playing on ultra, on console it will prob be a decent jump. but considering it was free i'm happy enough with the improved lighting and shit, i would have been pissed if i paid anything for it..

and yeah i've already put it down until we get skyui, the standard one is just so fucking aids after getting used to the mod.

Even meaner. These games RULE. Pretty much everything I want in a WWII FPS. Some story-based expansion packs would be boss.

i5 processor is alright! 3gb gfx 'will do'. If it doesn't already have an SSD then get that sorted and she'll hum along reeeal nice. You should be able to play most games that are coming out on low quality, and maybe even some on high. Older games will be fuckin' sweet as I reckon. Especially if you get an SSD for windows and installations. It will make a huge difference. You can get an 256gb SSD for $149-$199 now. Almost goes without saying that at least 8GB of DDR3 RAM or better would suit you well...
