Get DOS Box and do a Might/&Magic playthrough - starting with the first game. ;)

Played bits of this and bits of that. Wesnoth, turn-based, free strategy game - OK, but it's not quite my cup of tea - Interplanetary, which is kinda like the Worms game, only fun hotseat with other humans ;) - Rise of the Tomb Raider, which looks awesome and is boring is hell, Aven Colony, a solid city-builder, but lacking in originality, and Planet Explorers which is kinda like Minecraft and such. That one surprised me; I mean, there's a dozen of this type of game by now and it looked kinda ~meh, but it's actually pretty good.

And of course Transport Fever and OpenTTD ;)

Well, you could always get a console. This thread isn't just about playing games on PCs!

I've seen bits and bobs of Transport Fever, any good?

Anyway, I myself have mostly been playing Console games, FIFA 17, GTAV, F1 2016 and Watchdogs 2, with a bit of OTTD on the PC thrown in for good measure.

I recently got back to playing Fallout 4. I bought the Season Pass back when the game was released so I had quite a lot of DLCs to catch up to. Some pretty neat stuff. I've finished the Robotics Workshop DLC, Far Harbor, and Nuka World. Now to go work on that new Vault.

You wouldn't happen to be using the Xbox One?

Nope, I'm using a PS4, always preferred them to Xbox's personally.

Yup. Most people do sadly. Stupid controllers. We have PS4s at work and they simply aren't very nice to hold. :P

See, I don't like the Xbox controllers, the left Joystick is in the wrong place for me.

I think the left is where it should be. The right is too far down though :P

Still, the Playstation controller is too boxy. It's not comfortable for long sittings.

Rimworld. It's ruddy difficult sometimes. Colonists killing each other. Panthers killing colonists. Beavers eating all the trees. Screw you beavers!

Master of Orion 2 with the ICE mod, along with some gameplay changes of my own to suit my play style.

I've been missing the Formula One, so I've been playing a bit of Motorsport Manager when I find the time. Just finished my first season with the worst team in the game, and finished 8th (out of 10) in the Constructors! Even won 2 races after I sacked one of my drivers and got some amazing Portuguese Fella to head my line-up (The dodgy engine might have helped a bit as well, as technically, it was illegal if we'd have been caught :lol: )

I picked up Motorsport Manager as well but I'm struggling to understand it. The tutorial is too detailed in some places and entirely lacking in others. A bit of trial and error will be needed but I haven't had the time to do so.

Car setup is confusing me.

I've sorta been getting back into playing Counter Strike Global Offensive and OpenTTD, though if anything I'm just waiting for some games to come out (And now that I have a job again I can buy games and a better computer)

I keep bringing them in at the end of their outlap, and changing the set-up, though it doesn't quite make sense. I always thought Monza was a low-downforce, high-speed circuit. Not in Motorsport Manager! It wants a more balanced set-up!

Anyway, I've just finished the first race in season 2. Considering my main driver made 1 extra pit stop, had a drive through penalty, as well as changing the Rear Wing, Gearbox, Brakes, Suspension AND Engine, I wouldn't say second was a bad attempt! :lol:

Speaking of Set-ups, here's the set-up from my second race of the season. The "Mechanic's Recommendation" is pretty pants here!

He has that Schumacher chin. Good choice. I expect great things from Rodrigues.

So, I've not been playing that many games recently, but I have just bought an Xbox One, so I do need some game suggestions.

Will likely be buying Forza (both Horizon 3 and the new Motorsport) and F1 2017, but other than that what else should I get?

Forza, both of them. FIFA if you're into that. Fallout 4 of course :)

For Xbone I'd get Titanfall 2, the first one was a blast.

Speaking of TF2, played more Team Fortress 2 recently, we're about to get our annual update but nobody knows when. Supposedly the biggest update yet, hopefully worth the wait.
