Been playing Rage 2 and I love it. Took a little while to get going and the missions are a little repetitive but fuck me the combat and movement is fantastic.

Oh and Massive did their Division 2 State of the Game today and spent 30 mins talking about NPC behavior. I know this might sound crazy but that time could have been better spent uh, I dunno, maybe talking about how they plan on fixing the loot system, skills and build diversity. Actual specific details. Not oh that is coming in update 4.0. I mean I know it is crazy to think a developer would spend time talking about the shit the community actually cares about.

For a game that started off so remarkably well wow is it taking a nose dive. Making the same mistakes they made in Division 1 and not listening to the community. Fucking devs need to start pulling their heads out of their asses and realize they need to put their ego to the side and design the game based around what the community wants, even if that is not the design direction they wanted to go in. Bungie does this shit. We are listening. No you are not. I will give Bungie credit at least their core systems are fairly consistent. They are not trying to reinvent the wheel with every update. Fuck I haven't played Destiny is almost 8 months but with Anthem tanking and Division 2 going off the rails a part of me wants to jump back in. I just can't bring myself to get back into that grind, particularly when I know Borderlands 3 is out in September.

Been playing Satisfactory and Graveyard Keeper recently - both are pretty fun games, though Graveyard Keeper is a bit tedious at times.

Keen to check out Void Bastards in the near future:

Satisfactory worth a download HB?

It's an online game, in Early Access at the moment, and while I'm enjoying it so far, I think there's a good case to be made for holding off until a full release.

As it stands at the moment there's only the bare minimum of a plot, so if that's something you need then hold off. The focus is very much on building though, if you're expecting a story driven game and killing bad guys then look elsewhere. As with many of these types of building/open games, the fun is what you make it, rather then being lead by the nose. And even though it seems a bit open worldy from the trailers, it's certainly not an open world. There's exploring is pretty light on at the moment (perhaps there will be more in future updates) but there's not much to do other than build.

I tried Void Bastards last night - that was pretty cool but not super compelling, need to spend more time with it though.

Civilization 6 on the switch. Playing as Australia is quite tough I've found but early aggression seems to be winning at the moment.

The key to winning using the Australian Civ is to become a religious fascist state

My preferred method of course. :)
