  • I have to go to the store but quick reminder that the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Wave 2 DLC launches today.

  • Been playing more AC Odyssey and No Man's Sky.

    Cyberball 2072
    Mutant League Football
    NBA Jam
    NHL 94

    I think that about covers it.  Unless you count the N64 WCW and WWF games as sports.
  • Finished up Watch_Dogs 2, then made the bad choice of grabbing and starting Watch_Dogs Legion. Been playing that here and there, but my schedule at work changed so I've yet to figure out when to play.

    This past weekend, we finally got to play some Elder Scrolls: Online. I'm... Unimpressed so far. Maybe it's because it's the first MMORPG I've played, but it seems a bit too easy, the respawns are way too fast, and playing as a healer appears to be worthless. It also seems to be lacking in a integrated Voice comms method, and any way to accurately track the people you're playing with.
  • Apparently the Switch servers are getting slammed with people downloading the 2.1.0 update for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe so if you're heading to work or heading out you might want to leave it run.

  • CSB:
    In 1998 I was in the high school marching band. The low brass players had all been friends since birth and loved coming up with new unapproved songs to play while parade marching. One day while we were marching to the parade but not yet playing, a tuba started softly playing the RBI Baseball theme. Gradually a few others joined in and we had a pretty damn good marching song. Now every time I hear or see a tuba in hear in my head a soft solo of RBI Baseball.

    The band liked it when the brass pulled out Too Much. They did not like when the drumline decided to play Primus or Dem Bones as taps.
  • I hate-finished the Imperial Agent story line in SWTOR.  I liked the story, but SWTOR has all the worst mechanics of MMORPG games.  The game play felt like it was stuck in 1999 or so.

    As a palate cleanse, I started Divinity: Original Sin 2.    Its ok so far.  My character is an undead elf archer.  Elves are cannibals in that game, and I ALWAYS take the cannibal route in video games if I can.  No idea why, I just find it funny.  The undead look makes it even funnier.

    Other than that I've mostly been trying to collect one of every mech in Mechwarrior Online.  Working on skilling up a Wolfhound and a Hatamoto-chi.  I also made a Dragon last week that is among the best mechs I've ever made in that game in 8 years of playing on and off.

    QOTW: Best Sports game is NHL 93/94/95.

    Sure, you can include them in there as well. :)

    I like the 3/4 view racing format and upgrade/customizability which is missing from Mario Karts. If anyone know of a decent reimplementation I'd buy the heck out of it.

    My friend, what you're looking for is Motor Rock.

    It was taken down from Steam a hour or so after going up because Blizzard DMCAd it. But for a small donation you can buy a key off of the developers.

    Dammit, I forgot Blades of Steel.  Damn fine game.

    Follow a guide for DOS2. I would never have understood anything at all if I didnt. That said, it's a delightful game and in my Top 3 ever. The first is great too but 2 makes so many sensible upgrades and fixes that going back feels very constrained, so if possible play 1, figure out the mechanics, then do 2 and enjoy the things you wished you could do in 1.

    I try not to use guides when possible.  I did play 1, but it was several years ago and I don't remember too much other than liking it a fair bit. I was an archer in that one too.

    Thanks, I'll check it out.

    California Games was long a favorite, but ally Epyx olympic games were good.

    Yeah, I was like....folks still have those? Sheeeit. I remember telling people to pull their sound cards out and change the jumpers when I worked at Creative Labs tech support in the 90s.

    Fun with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Wave 2 DLC (versus my 12 year old, who wanted me to once again recommend Digimon: Survive on here).
  • I'm back playing Crusader Kings III.

    Kudos to this guy (who looks like medieval Edge). I went to war with his liege, captured him in battle, released him for ransom, captured him in battle again, ransomed him again, and now he's my vassal).

    Also, I went to war with a neighbouring county because I had 2,500 troops ready to go and he had about 150. The guy was single and had his spymaster as his concubine. His spymaster had -71 against him because she was Catholic and resented being a concubine. o_O Part of me expected her to just off him mid-war.

    Mid-way through that war I get dragged into another war by an ally. I lose the first couple battles because the guy had more troops. I call in every ally I had (all 9!) and we crush him flat. It was something like 13,000 troops in total vs... about 4,000.

    My character is suffering from stress after losing two sons to a war but I think I can lower that. His concubines hate his guts but one of them is finally pregnant. I had one concubine and then I went to war, captured the other guy's wife, went "damn, she's cute" and made her concubine #2. Then I realized I had her sister in jail as well and thought  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  • The best sports game ever is the Football Manager series because [complains for two hours about spreadsheets, 3D match engines, unrealistic result generation, difficulty in using editing program, etc. etc. etc.]

    Point being that if we can put up with all of that then still put in so many hours into the game, it must be good.  Or we're bored, I dunno.

    Anyways I've been playing MLB The Show 22 to help with insomnia. I'm getting a lot better with pitch recognition, and now my player in his age-20 season is in the MVP conversation.
