That is sad. Move the game to different partition / drive if possible and 'check game files'?

I played just some ED and AoE DE.

Age of Empires: Definitive Edition I get

But what is ED ?

Since I hit 91 in Restoration (Skyrim)
I went to the Augur and got the Bane of the Undead
600 magic to cast = rubbish

Strange I passed the test without using Restoration

Kingdom Come Deliverance. If unsure, lookup Sexy Biscuit's channel on Youtube. This person lives and breathes KCD (and has done interviews with the actors involved, very entertaining).

I was thinking to play all DA games, but managed only to start first one and lost interest quickly. Will revisit that hopefully soon.

I finished twice Lords of the Fallen. I really liked it.

Bought Cyberpunk 2077 but due to its glitches (even after a number of patches) gave up playing it and returned to Destiny 2. I am used to buying different helpers for the game to always win. My old school chum even hired a coach at this service and if I got him right he is more than satisfied with the level of skills he acquired.

I've been playing AC: Valhall ever since christmas. Good game IMO, even thought he Ubisoft formula is very noticable. When I started to play it, I thought it feels like "Far Cry2, but I like the setting much better.
Already got clocked 120 hours and I guess I'm not even halfway through. Not sure if that game is really meant to be played through. But the good thing is, that I can fire it up anytime, without loosing much. For some games, I loose the drive when I stopped playing for some days or weeks due to time, because then I forget the controls or what I'm supposed to do right now, etc..

Past week finished Age of Empires: DE - got all achievements on xBox live except rated online game.

Couple other games I've tried over past week:

ReCore
Rise of Nations: Extended Edition
Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey
Crusader Kings III

Interestingly, I did not even log into ED.

I have that problem with Civilization. If I quit a game that is well underway to finish it later then I lose my affinity with it. I forgot what I was planning or working on, what had happened recently, what my relationships with other civs are... it just doesn't feel like my game anymore and that makes it harder to continue it.

That can be an issue, especially for games that are like Elite Dangerous, where you can either restart the game or continue where you left, but mostly will not remember what you are doing or how to do it. There is always a week-two period to reboot the game.

Really enjoying Everybody's Golf VR. Just a shame there is no competition mode. Or a story mode like Mario Golf on the GB - still may favourite!

I gave the Command & Conquer remaster another try.

It just didn't age very well for me, it's so mindnumbingly boring to me now. Back then I was completely wowed by it but not anymore. The hammy cutscenes are still very enjoyable though

Can't say I'm very impressed by the remastered music either, the original soundtrack still rules.

Witcher 3.

I actually uninstalled this game in April last year as I just got bored with it. I decided to give it another go and boy, am I glad I did. I can honestly say this is one of the few open world games that I have really enjoyed, and I'm getting those warm and fuzzy feelings you get when you develop a deep sense of attachment to a game's characters, world and lore.

I just restarted the same game - Witcher 3 - went again from beginning to go through tutorial and story.

Did updates and some extra downloads on Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 - over 30GB of updates.

I actually was on another Witcher 3 playthrough during the Christmas vacation but the game becomes way too easy if you've already played and completed it before There is little challenge if you know how to dodge, know where to go and where to find loot. I just wanted to do a playthrough where I literally was a huge jerk to all romantic options. It worked - I felt like a jerk.

I'm playing it on PS4, so it's vanilla for me.

I also purchased Streets of Rage 4 the other day. My first impression is that it looks nice and plays well, but the music doesn't hold a candle to SoR2's. Then again, I regard SoR2's soundtrack as one of the best of all time, so it's stiff competition.

My wife also got me Cyberpunk on PS4 for Christmas. Despite all the bad press, I'm super hyped to play it. But I might wait until the big patches drop, or perhaps until I get a PS5.

Both Dragon Age and Lords of the Fallen are brilliant, and I definitely recommend them.
