My 8 year old has warned me that it's too hard with the motion controls though, so perhaps I won't. ;)
Don't do it homes, we spent the better part of an hour trying to fly the bird-thing in the race at the beginning. it was dumb.

... I mean it probably didn't help that I hopped into it without knowing how it all worked and said 8 yo is her mother's child and didn't bother to read the damn instructions beforehand. But, y'know. Motion controls are gimmicky and stupid and I hate them. It has nothing to do with the fact that I suck at them and everything to do with them being bad no-good etc. :glance:

ASIDES from being a terrible role model, I've been playing Dawn of Man in between bouts of being busy/not. It's a decent sim, but it's very... automated. in some respects it's nice but I wish it gave the player more ability to tweak some of the smaller aspects.

I haven't looked into mods yet, maybe there's something that allows for a bit more micromanagement.

Been playing through Control again, because someone I occasionally watch was streaming it and because I never got around to the DLC when they came out. I need to clean up a few trophies for the Foundation DLC and then I'm going to start the Alan Wake DLC.

I don't have much time for gaming anymore. I did try playing GOG's version of Zombies Ate my Neighbor (which I loved as a child) back in June. However, the audio wouldn't work! :(

In video games, the most critical aspect is finding a quality platform that will be exciting gameplay and ease of use. I was lucky to find something similar because I did not start playing the usual fighting games and races, but a little different side
The gaming industry is very developed, and you can find absolutely anything. In this respect, I was lucky because my computer is not very powerful to pull big games. That's why for me, farmingless.com is the most suitable option.

Because I can't read kanji to save my lifeI shall have to resort to the eBay listing.

Kantai Collection KanColle Kai Regular Edition for the PS Vita. Cute anime girls dressed up as World War 2 era battleships. It's a Vita version of the mobile game. No clue if it's any good yet, but it looks like fun. And it was a sealed copy, complete with instruction manual.

I miss instruction manuals......

Unfortunately while I'm playing on a weak laptop, I've already got a whole list of things I'd like to get through. Now I've finally started saving up for something with at least a medium budget. Meanwhile, I'm passing old games such as C&C Red Alert 2-3, as well as once again passing the old Mass Effect trilogy. Well, if I'm on the road, I use my phone for a vulkanvegas bonus and play slots. It's a dubious pastime, though. So far so good.
