And my budget refreshes in time to take advantage of the sale.  Sooooo screwed.

YAY!  I still have a gift card loaded to my account!


Most of my wishlist games are 50% off.  Pulling the trigger.

Picked up Conan: Exiles so I could finally get in on that action
Also got Dark Souls 3 because a bunch of local friends are crazy over it (and have been playing the board game, which I'm missing since I haven't played the computer game)
Also Witcher 3 because... well, the sound track to be honest. Love Percival.

I got lots of games I've never played personally, though most of those are from Humble bundles. Was looking though my wish list and found I really didn't care about any of them much anymore. They few I'm interested in are not actual available right now. Also doesn't help that the discounts on nearly all the games in my wishlist are crap. Seen better discounts on weekend specials. On the 1st my humble month will come though and I'll see what games I get and go from there. Might get something in the $15-20 buck ranges but might decide it isn't worth it.

Remember it's not StarDruid if it's not random topics.

I played about 4 hours of Conan figuring things out on Sunday! I can see where that would be fun with other people, but yeah, I won't play it long solo.

I tried to play Dark Souls, but I can't get the friggin' game to cooperate with my controller. I can't say I've spent a lot of time digging into it, but it's irritating. I tried to play on the keyboard and mouse, but all the in-game tips and moves are all based on controller, so I was getting my bingus kicked by not knowing how to translate that into my controls.

But yeah, for the most part you're right :) I have jumped into PS2 a few times over the last week and pay attention to Discord to see if anyone is playing, but so far I haven't been in front of the computer when anyone else is online :(

I picked up Rimworld and Oxygen Not Included and they are awesome.  I also picked up Battle Blocks Theater/Castle Crashers bundle for the kids so they could play each other and it must be good, all I hear is laughter from the other room when they are playing it.  I asked them if they like it and they both gave me thumbs up which is akin to them reciting the Gettysburg Address in my house.

The trailer for that game is probably the funniest thing I've seen in a while.

I accidentally stumbled across this old gem on Steam while looking for deals.

Subspace Continuum

Talk about Nostalgia. Mudhen and I used to play the heck out of this.

Just dropped on Fallout Classic Bundle (Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout Tactics) and X-Com 2.  CoH2.......thinking about that...

I just started playing dragon age inquisition.  It is fun!  Mad Max is next on my list.  I picked it up based on Alphabet's review of it.

Finished Mad Max tonight. 94 hours. Hope they make another one. I REALLY enjoyed it.
