Dark Souls 3.

If you play only one Soulsborne game in your life, make it this one.

Just finished Alien vs. Predator (one from 2010) and not sure I like to hunt all achievements, as some of them are for online play - and I am not fun of online gamez...)

Replaying Wing Commander 1 for DOS (with secret missions)... It takes some tools to adjust it for DOSBox... (got it from GoG, even I have CD somewhere, can't bother fixing it up and setting the game ) Might try to replay all of WC games, as I got bit too tired with ED...

Also hooked on Starbound again after having given it another try now that it has hit a 1.0 version. And it is actually pretty great, all the pieces have fallen into place! Basically it is a 2D No Man's Sky.

Was looking at it, but knowing how addictive games such as this can be, decided to wait for 'sale' that might never happen... keeping it on safe side...
Still having nightmare from fishing in Terraria to get last achievement.... (had teleports to all major sites to fish - that took a while to build )

Currently hooked on 'Motorbike' for Android. Finished the included levels, and now onto the thousands of online levels.

Also, for some reason, playing Frontier on the Amiga again. I always seem to come back to it every 5 years or so...

Playing the last evenings some rounds of my favorite pinbal table from the past on real machine: Pinbal Dreams - Ignition table.
Even present day it makes a lot of fun.
I like the music and sound effects of this table, especially those sound effect, if you reach 2,5 million.
On the other hand it seems i am not as good with this table anymore!
I remmember i had a score of ~1,2 Milliarden in the past, but now less than 100 Millions.

Freespace(Amiga), only emulated. A really nice looking game but it gets a bit boring over the time.I may crank up the difficulty level.
A shame I never had real hardware, powerful enough to run it.

And I play GTA: San Andreas. On a phone.
Gets more fps than on my old Computer in 2005!!!

I recently completed Doom, and it's easily one of the best shooters I have ever played. And I've played them by the dozen since the glory days of the 90s, including the critically acclaimed, the written off and the ones that flew under the radar.

Shootouts in Doom don't feel like mere obstacles to overcome, or action set pieces to enjoy. They are periodic descents into madness, fuelled by ruthless enemies out to dismember and devour you, a gung-ho arsenal of chunky and ridiculously overpowered weapons, beautiful graphics, silky controls and a thumping thrash metal tracklist. And when the smoke clears, the blood dribbles away, and your frenetic rage subsides as you wipe the foam from your mouth, you seriously feel like you've recovered from some sort of seizure.

Doom is a frenzied, ballsy, insane and ultra-violent orgy that is both a love letter to the over-the-top shooters of old and an unrepentant middle finger to plodding and mundane titles like Call of Duty. The game is set in hell, the action is mad as hell, and the end result is pure, unadulterated bliss.

In other news, I've given Undertale a go, and I'm thinking of putting it down. A shame, as I don't like doing this - I prefer seeing games through to completion, even if they don't particularly grab me. For whatever reason, I just don't get Undertale at all.

Also can't wait for Dishonored 2.

Heroes of the Monkey Tavern.

Any Dungeon Master fan needs to play this. I believe Neil touched on this game in his thread.

Yep up on Indie Retro News, had the chance to play it pre-release..

Still wanting a gritty dungeon crawler though, one I feel fear when playing and surrounded by decaying walls

Damn, Its basically Grimrock with cooler looking enemies and traps. ... which puts it on my wishlist immediately. Nice price tag also.

Completely 100% Agree. Play the Alchemist Tale song from the menu loud and you will experience a great piece of haunting music.

I have finished the game now. Although a bit short. It was the best Dungeon master experience I have had since Grimrock.
