Finished Divinity Original Sin and have moved on to its sequel, which I'm enjoying very much.  I forgot how rough the beginning of the games can be seeing as how you have not reached physical god status at that point.  

Also slowly getting better at Smash but have a long, long way to go.

Path of Exile's new league is absolutely amazing, probably the best one I got to play so far. This game is a bastion of hope for me, it's not only enduring the passing of time, it's getting better and better. Unlike other franchises that I enjoyed currently experiencing downfall.

On the side, a bit of Distance, which got tremendously better. The developers really invested themselves in creating this excellent parkour racing indie. The atmosphere, the soundtracks and the levels all speak good quality to me.

Would like to delve into some more Cities Skylines and maybe purchase a new game on Steam since the winter sale's going on. Plenty of options to choose from.

Started playing Smash-U. Damn, I'm bad at this game That said it's really cool, you can do a lot of stuff in it and the flavor/nostalgia is all over the place. Because I suck so much at this, it's nice you are given second chances to unlock new characters if you loose the initial fight (yeah I now it's not that hard to beat them, but first I got to learn not to suicide my characters by dropping them out of stage ).

Other then that Valkyria Chronicles 4 which is simply a great game.

Just started playing "Divinity Original Sin" (Enhanced Edition if it makes a difference overall, i don't know).
Man...!!! I saw my kids playing impressive new games, but it's another thing to see and another thing to play one.
Too much time spend in HOMM-5 i guess.
Wonderful musics, wonderful artwork, super fast loading, flawless playing. Very early thoughts but i thing i 'll like it big time. Especially when my foes approaching and time freezes, with game entering in turn based mode. Hehehe...yes...i thing i will love this one.

Annoying bot.  

Still working on Divinity 2 and Civ VI on Switch, which is a pretty solid port.  I do wish they had ironed out some of the older bugs though.

Crusader Kings 2, the latest version with all the DLCs.  Holy Fury is just amazing and so fun.  Created an empire which spans from the Aegean in the south to the Baltic in the north, reformed the Slavic religion, currently setting my sights on the remnants of the Byzantine empire.  And I'm absolutely enjoying it

Also, Dota 2, and Fire Emblem 7.

Damn, those cool GBA classics. I really hope Three Houses on Switch will live up to the hype. If not Nintendo please make a Radiant Dawn/Path of Radiance remake.

I normally avoid Early Access games, but I trust Klei to make a good thing and stick with it until it's done - and so I bought Oxygen Not Included.

It is quite entertaining and very approachable. Big problem so far is that I tend to significantly underestimate the need for oxygen production. That and so far with each colony I started, I managed to contaminate my water source within two days

Civilization III with DYP (double your pleasure mod), the game where the escape key does not close the dialogs and where it keeps looping through all AI production before your turn, during your turn and after your turn, thus you never get any Wonder built - at high dif levels naturally when one turn makes the difference.

Other than that, great game.

Rediscovered Stellaris, I admit I giggled too much when I started genetically modifying and then later giving cybernetic implants to my materialist space octopi, even got to test out the megastructures, hilarity ensued.

Also I played with my brother, I got bad neighbors and was forced to a slower expansion (with an empire that was built for expansion), resulting in me raging at my brother's easy start that allowed him a much faster technological advancement.

Pretty fun overall.

Sigh, I thought that Winter season will give me a break when it comes to number of games to play, but it turned out as always: a lot on my list.

Valkyria Chronicles 4 - I finished the main story, only a few bonus missions left to clear. The game was cool gameplay-wise (no surprise here, yet it felt a bit easier then original VC?). I liked the characters, but somehow the story didn't captivate me more then the original. How they resolved the world war thing was pretty underwhelming (I sense some morality-related things at work, it is a Japanese game after all).

Super Smash Bros Ultimate - this game isn't exactly "finishable" per se, but you can at least finish its Adventure mode. I'm pretty deep in. I think I cleared most part. Nowadays I'm really focused on the "collect Spirits" aspect of the game so I regularly visit the Spirit Board mode.

Endless Legend - so yeah, here's the thing. They caught people by surprise and popped out with another DLC (final they say, yeah right, where did we hear that before). I wanted to pass on it for now, but unfortunately the game baited me again. Not to mention I didn't buy the previous expansion (Inferno) and it's 50% off now. I want to play EL now, alas it really messed my plans with...

...Wargroove - not exactly playing it yet, but there is no chance I could've pass on it, especially that it comes out now, so before FE: Three Houses (which is still slated for a Spring release).

Not to mention I barely touched TWWII: Curse of the Vampire Coast.

There is no second story in RE2 btw. It's just the regular Male/Female story, not A/B stories like in the original. A bit of a shame.

Playing on Hardcore and this is snowing awesome btw. Claire naturally. First zombie you meet doesn't die from ten handgun rounds to the head. You have ten rounds. SWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEET. Having no ammo to take out more than 1-3 zombies at most on you you start to think of alternate plans and really, really listening to those creaks and shuffles around you.

I just got the tyrant loose. On my way to clocktower. Tyrant on my heels and lickers in the corridors on the way. Yayyyyyyy


No lockpick for claire though, meh, have to be a pleb.

Missing the ability to stomp on zombies heads when they're on the floor. That was always fun.

The bigger complaint would be the knife. It deterioriates with use so while you can down a zombie and then finish it off with the knife, it's not a real solution and just feels gamey.



EDIT: There is a 2nd New Game, just like the original A/B but they're not character unique. So Leon A is almost identical to Claire A and same with the B scenarios(the start to Leon B is super gay btw, you have to buffer back+run or you'll get instagrabbed after the cutscene at the gate.)

They do not remember what you have done though. The windows you boarded are not boarded, the items you collected are not gone, you even have the same puzzles to solve again. This is a big, big letdown and they could have done like the original where it was consistent between A/B. Disappointed here.

Still, the 2nd scenario feels a lot tougher right from the get go and I like that. After finishing the first my main concern was ammo but that's partly because I didn't make good use of the stun gun. Should have used it to take out all the plant zombies, it's super useful for that(only found out in the escape sequence that it's a oneshot, oh well.)

As for general tips:
- SLS60, well, it's snow. Accuracy is bad, only five rounds and takes time to aim. At least get the speed reloader quick so it becomes somewhat usable. Use it to down a zombie(five shots in the head, so don't miss) and then knife them to death or if there are more than one, shoot them in the head another five times. Most of the time that is enough, but not always. After you get the reinforcement for the gun you get alternative ammo as well, which turns the gun into a magnum. Oneshots zombies(with a headshot) and is great against bosses but ammo is super limited. I gathered all ammo and spent pretty much all of it in Birkin three(saved SMG for Birkin four.)
- JB9 is great. Comes with a 13 round magazine and a laser sight so you actually hit where you aim. A magazine upgrade into 26 rounder later. So, so good. Ditch the SLS60 and just use this to spend all your handgun rounds. This is your main carry. Basic down a zombie, knife them to death to save rounds, otherwise unload a into their head after they go down to finish them off.
- Acid rounds vs Zombies are a no go, they do negligible damage and don't make sure they are dead. Acid rounds vs Lickers are great because they stun them from dash and jump and kill with two shots. Really nice. Acid rounds are also great at bosses and against tough enemies because they stun them so you can unload with something else in peace(handgun/SMG/magnum.) Upgrade not so necessary and it's questionable whether the stock is worth the inventory space it takes. Used all the white gunpowder in the game to make these. If you can afford to save all the large gunpowder/white gunpowder to mix only with each other, it's optimal and leaves plenty of normal gunpowder to mix into handgun ammo but rather have the rounds when you need them than not so not a huge crime to just make as you go along.
- Flame rounds oneshot zombies and make them dead for sure, really, really good. Also Claire's only way to fry the plant zombies later on so use caringly, don't waste on things not zombies(lickers, bosses.)
- Claire SMG without suppressor is super useless(bad accuracy and low ammo capacity,) SMG with suppressor is amazing(shooting is quiet won't alarm lickers or Tyrant and has almost no spread) with the magazine upgrade you can down bosses in no time. Should save ammo before getting the upgrade. There's enough in the game to never have to make it.
- The stungun is actually really good vs plant zombies later in the game, oneshot with a full load. Also it's almost useless versus bosses(or other though enemies with too much HP or resistance to come hit you while you are loading) so feel free to burn all the ammo as you get it if you feel like it. Not a crowd weapon(as it takes time to unleash the full charge.)
- Hand grenades are not that great. They don't oneshot zombies even. HOWEVER! Down a group of zombies and then one grenade can finish of all of them at once. You can also get grabbed by a zombie and use them to defend you can feed them one and shoot at it for oneshot kill.
- Don't use knives for defense before their condition is critical. A full HP knife will go down roughly 40% in condition if stabbed as a defense even if you take it back. Worse yet if you were not planning the enemy at all. You can take roughly 3 zombies out with one knife after downing them with a handgun and they are great for making zombies playing dead, actually dead.
- Flashbangs cripple lickers for a while so you might want to save them for such encounters. Highly useful items in other cases as well. If it wasn't for the ammo conservation abilities on the other two, these would be my favourite.
- Full heal herb mixes are gooooooooooooooood. The damage reduction is quite substantial and lasts for a long, long time. Take one into every boss or dangerous area and you can just breeze through like nothing. Unless you need blue herb for poison removal right now, it's worth spending all blue herbs on these. I think you get like one/two extra red herbs and something like five extra green ones compared to the blues during the course of the game.
- Board all the windows in that are in general passthrough areas. Kill all the zombies that appear near or in hallways in such places. You'll thank me later.
- Solving locks doesn't pause the game so you might wanna keep an ear out while opening them.
- You can brute force the three dial locks if you wish to, it's relatively easy, to avoid revisiting the area later. Safes not so much.
- Upgrading a weapon gives free ammunition for it if it is not loaded. SMG for example gets 24 rounds. That's not insignificant.

Not always.  I upgraded the Matilda a second time when it had no ammo and did not get anything free from it.

Yeah I figured that out yesterday as well. If the upgrade gives you capacity, like a magazine upgrade or alternative ammo ability then you get ammo for as much capacity as you gained. So muzzle brake doesnít give you ammo for matilda while the magazine does. Similarly reinforcing gives five magnum ammo for sls60 while speed reloader does nothing. I donít think the weapon has to be empty either.

Almost done with the station for leon B, just grab my magnum and head down. Shotgun is so fricking good for zombies btw. Sneak up behind them and pop goes the head. Compared to something like 15 handgun ammo it takes thatís pretty gooood. Not sure if I want to spend my yellow gunpowder on magnum or shotgun sells. If I do shutgun shells Iíll get more ammo. Not only do I get twice the combination, I can use large gunpowder as well. So maybe three four times more ammo that way and against zombies itís almost as good. Ofc making magnum rounds leaves you with tons of handgun ammo but aside from some bosses, plant zombies and convenient regular zombie placements its not that good.

Havenít run out of shotgun ammo yet though so will see what I end up doing.
