    Yeah, I played Squadrons in VR with xbox controller. Initially it was definitely very weird. But I think I've gotten used to it. It's more intense than forward/back/left/right movement in VR FPS, but I think less intense than VR racing games. Personally, I can't handle horizontal turns without me turning (cornering in racing games), but I'm fine with banked turn in a plane or FPS style movements.

    Played MSFS using the "side stick" last night on regular flat ultrawide screen. The joystick is a LOT easier to do minor movements than xbox controller, as expected.

    I feel like Andromeda is a really fun space game if you disconnect it from Commander Shepard. It's Mass Effect in a Galaxy Far Far Away. It's still fun, just don't expect... the trilogy.

    I have now finished Disco Elysium. That was... an experience all right.

    I've mostly been playing X4 Foundations for the past few days, picked up the Terran DLC and have been running through one of the plots for that.
    Outside of that, most of my free time is taken up by running multiple D&D games.

    I can't seem to settle. But then it's not unusual for me to have several games on the go. I got further into Vampyr and then saw Phoenix Point on sale (same guy that did Xcom). So now I'm 17 hours deep into that :hehe:

    I am playing Call of Duty these days on my Lava smartphone that has a Dimensity 810 chipset. I am literally addicted to this game.

    The Forgotten City.

    Only booted it up (is on game pass ) to see what the hype was about, and I'm loving it. 8 hours in, got one of the 4 endings and still exploring conversations, piecing together what's going on, and loving every minute of it.

    Having a proper good time with this right now . Saves all the messing around with a Pi or anything else. Works brilliantly .

    Back on the Valheim addiction!

    Got absolutely obliterated by a group of Draugr and promptly spent about an hour doing corpse runs while trying to take them out. Found a decent swamp biome for digging up iron though.

    Mechwarrior 5: Mercenaries

    Decided to buy this on Steam (I had it on the Epic Store, but eff that) over Christmas and am playing through as I feel I've neglected gaming for too long. IIRC, the last game I played was ME Andromeda, at the start of last year.

    Anyway, have only completed the tutorial and the first mission so far, but redid them a couple of times to get the hang of things, and to also not have a huge 250,000 credit repair bill owing to a badly damaged leg. Quite pretty and it's nice to be playing a genre I remember from my childhood. Hell, it was a 17 year gap between this and MW4 Mercenaries, and I never got around to Mechwarrior Online as I didn't really care about multiplayer. Used to be okay at MW4 Mercenaries online now that I think about it. Looking forward to getting my hands on some AC20s and giving something a spank up close.

    STOMPY STOMPY STOMPY...

    Am on that last ball twitching part of HL2 EP2. Did the other two over two days, but the end of EP2 is really hard.

    Remember you can kill Hunters by running them over in the car, it makes life easier!

    Yeah I mostly did that. Saved after every strider killed. It's the last part though man. Jesus that was tough ! I did it though, but kinda wishing I didn't now because I forgot how sad the ending is.

    I usually play through it all once a year. However, I never do that last part. Really gets me stressed to balls lol.

    Alyx when I get back. I put about three hours in then stopped playing. I need to create more space so I am not smacking my hands on the desk.

    I bought PC Building Simulator earlier on Humble Bundle.

    It's totally dumb... but I sat there and played it for nearly 3 hours...!

    This game has promise.

    AC Valhalla, which now I've found the "advanced assasination" skill I'm finding it a bit more enjoyable, still seem to get stomped in melee if I'm not careful, I'm not good at blocking.
    Getting fed up of the totally random crashes though.

    I bought myself a number of games in the Steam sale but began with Horizon Zero Dawn. Its clearly a great game but I'd have liked a little more variation in parts where I was hoping for a deeper RPG element. I love the combat mechanics however and there are also some amazing locations/vista to take in.
