<3 don't starve. I used to play a bunch with my brother.

No spoilers plz! Discovery seems to be the fun part. I've spent a lot of time staring at resources needed for crafting and then running into the world trying to figure out what they could possibly be.
...Once we were watching a Dr. Who episode.

The human-hero had just crash-landed on a planet full of apparently unconscious killer robots.

The first thing the guy does is run and hide. The second thing the guy does is nervously walk up and touch one to see if it will kill him. After that, he decides they are harmless and ignores them.

My brother turns to me and says, "if this was Don't Starve, I definitely would not have touched a robot."


(Which I guess is obvious, but it's really fun to always find yourself not knowing if something is good or bad or what and trying to find out the best way to experiment with it or just run the hell away.)

lol, run the hell away seems to be the default reaction to everything in that game. I've killed very few things myself, and those primarily with traps. Anything else I've "killed" has been by dragging monsters that are chasing me into other monsters and then collecting the loot from the loser. Been trying to get a giant bee to fight a giant spider for awhile, my money is on the bee if I can ever make it happen.

Had a different giant spider that I spent a long time planting a forest around, I then started a forest fire once I had 50 or so full grown trees to see if I could roast the damn thing... a day later the fire was out and he was still trotting around the massive field of ashes

(re)Started Witcher 3 on XBox. Hopefully I can give it more time. Unfortunately, these days, I get and hour or two a week gaming time. So this will be a long slog.

I haven't played a single minute of video games since Saturday (thanks a lot, work travel). And given my weekend plans, I don't know that I'm going to get a chance to fire up the PS4 before Sunday after my kids are asleep.

This. Is. Bullshit.

Currently 2 wins away from Grand Champion rank in 2v2 for Rocket League.

I've gotten 1 win away in 3v3 a month back, but have since slipped back to Champ 3 Division 1. Good sign that I have gotten to the border in both playlists though, definitely feeling more and more confident I'll be able to pull it off at long long last. But never know, the RL grind can be unforgiving sometimes!

Beat Bioshock Infinite last week as well. Ending was trippy as hell, had to look up online what happened

Done with my single players side games with Bioshock done, Assassin Creed Origin/Odyssey would be the natural ones to look into next.

Yeah, two hours a week will take 2-3 years.

3-4 if you throw in the DLC? I need to go back and do that, I hear Blood and Wine is excellent.
