In my case, it's been Anno 2205 or Anno 1800 during their Free Weekends. (Anno 1800 is supported by GeForce Now; Anno 2205, unfortunately, is not - yet; I own Anno 2205, but not Anno 1800.)  My alternate is Bejeweled Blitz (Facebook) on both PC and phone.

Playing Animal Crossing right now on my Switch.  Ok game I guess.  Kind of slow going though.  Things that need building, you need to wait until next day to complete the build.  Also, resources are kind of low for what you can get per day.  Maybe I am doing something wrong but I find myself playing for a little while and then doing everything I can for that day and turning off the game.

Finished Control and the first DLC for, really fun game and I've been a fan of Remedy for the longest.  Wish I had more to do in it and I'd still be playing it.  Hope the 2nd DLC doesn't take too long to come.

I think I've split my time this week between the following:

  • Doom Eternal
  • Jedi Fallen Order
  • Elite Dangerous
  • The Last of Us

But at the same time I have also gone and bought these:

  • Detroit: Become Human
  • Assassin's Creed Oddessy
  • Rise of the Tomb Raider (just started it today which is why I didn't put it in the above list)
  • Shadow of the Tomb Raider
  • Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy
  • Tetris Effect
  • Dreams
  • The Jackbox Party Pack

In my defence, Tetris, Dreams and the Jackbox Party Pack I got hold of so that it can complement Knowledge is Power as party games for the house when we get bored. As for the rest...well, if you're not going to let me go out what do you expect me to spend my money on?! At least I've got things to keep me occupied. :laugh:

Well I've already completed The Last of Us several years ago, I just started it up again because a) I want to be reminded of everything that happened before TLoU2 comes out, and b) it's an awesome game. I'd be comfortable putting it down though and just watching a gameplay run-through on YoutTube.

 

Crash Bandicoot I got because it was one of the first video games I ever owned as a kid, back when it was just called a Playstation. Nostalgia is a ##### though, and the controls haven't lasted too well over the years. For a game that primarily has you jumping from one place to another it's really hit-and-miss on if I stick the landing or not.

 

I've played about an hour of Assassin's Creed but it hasn't grabbed me at the moment so that will take a backseat for a while.

 

But still, I guess even if you remove those entries as well as the party entries...yeah, I've got things to keep me entertained. :p

Can I add you to my PSN? I don't play online much but it is good to compare.

Oh don't get me wrong, I love the series! I just wasn't grabbed by the beginning missions and the daunting size of the thing. Starting simple missions, "go here and kill him. Now go here and kill him" is a bit boring compared to what the other games are asking of me at the moment.

 

I'll send you a PM with my PSN. I warn you though, it might say that I'm online or currently playing a game when I'm not. For example during this isolation thing I'm working from home, so I might take five minutes to relieve some stress by taking out demons and then pause and go back to work rather than shutting the PS4 down. ;)

I started playing The Talos Principle last week. It's not my usual cup of tea, but I'm really enjoying it right now. It's kind of a philosophical, slow paced puzzle game. I really like the atmosphere, very chill, really gets my mind off the whole quarantine shtick. The gameplay is alright for a puzzle game, some might compare it to Portal. I guess I needed a game that wasn't very mind numbing and instead makes me feel kind of clever 😅

I played XCOM: Chimera Squad. Pretty good time waster. I liked not having to deal with base-building and stuff.

Now playing Gears: Tactics. I'm freaking loving this game. Very, VERY unforgiving. lol

Completed The Witcher 2 this weekend after being distracted by No Man's Sky. Loved the game despite its flaws and cannot wait to pick the third one

 

Installed the Dead Space Trilogy for some mindless fun. It's a damn good looking game for its age.

      Sony enables PlayStation 5 SSD upgrades via M.2 slot for beta testers
      by Chandrakant Isi



      Sony's PlayStation 5 shipped with a dormant M.2 expansion slot. Months after the launch, the Japanese company is now opening up the M.2 slot to beta testers. Those who like to tinker with their gaming console can boost its internal storage by adding an SSD. If you would like to give it a shot, Sony has provided an elaborate guide with some software and hardware requirements.

      For starters, PCIe Gen4 x4 M.2 NVMe SSDs with capacity ranging from 250 GB to 4 TB are advised to be used with Sony's console. The recommended sequential read speed is 5,500MB/s or faster. More importantly, you can't simply stick any SSD into the PS5. Sony requires it to feature an effective heat dissipation system. You can either go with an SSD with a built-in cooling system or buy an aftermarket cooling solution and add it yourself. However, you will have to ensure the SSD module size including the heatsink element should be less than 110 mm (L) x 25 mm (W) x 11.25 mm (H).

      If all this hasn't deterred you from going ahead with the storage expansion process, it is time to ensure your system software is compatible with this feature. At this point, only the beta firmware supports the M.2 slot. So first, head over to this link to register for the PS5 beta program. It is only open for gamers in the US, Canada, Japan, UK, Germany, and France. If you are lucky enough to get selected for the beta program, the next step is to install the beta system software from Settings > System > System Software > System Software Update and Settings.

      Once you have the software ready, the next part requires you to pop open your expensive PS5, which is quite hard to come by due to the global chip shortage. Hence, we recommend heading over to PlayStation.com and carefully follow the steps provided by the manufacturer.

      Call of Duty, Uncharted, and The Last of Us developers team up to form a new studio
      by Chandrakant Isi



      Video game industry veterans behind blockbuster titles such as The Last of Us, Uncharted, and Call of Duty, have teamed up to start a new studio dubbed That's No Moon. The independent studio's first project is a AAA third-person action-adventure game that focuses on a single-player campaign.

      As per the official website, this new studio is led by CEO Michael Mumbauer, who previously headed PlayStation's Visual Arts Group. Creative director, Taylor Kurosaki is known for single-player narrative in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. Jacob Minkoff, who was involved in the development of games such as Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, The Last of Us, Modern Warfare, Warzone, will serve as a game director. Currently, the company has nearly 40 developers coming from several big studios. With office locations in Los Angeles and San Diego, That's No Moon has plans to get 100 developers on board by 2022.

      The studio has received $100 million funding from the South Korean video game company Smilegate best known for creating the Crossfire series. That's No Moon hasn't shared many details regarding its first project, however, there's a clear emphasis on building "genre-defining" and "narrative-driven" games. Sure it is too early to say this, but the studio would like its games to be adopted in film and other media.

      That's No Moon isn't the only new studio to pop up this year. Just a few weeks ago, Rockstar Games co-founder, Dan Houser reportedly started his new company.

      Rocket League and James Bond crossover brings in the iconic Aston Martin DB5
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      After many returning collaborations in the past months, Rocket League developer Psyonix today announced a brand-new crossover event that has James Bond's 1963 Aston Martin DB5 coming into the game as part of a promotion involving Metro Goldwyn Mayer (MGM) and Aston Martin.

      Driven by 007 in a multitude of Bond movies, including the upcoming entry No Time To Die, the DB5 in the popular rocket-powered vehicular soccer game features the signature Silver Birch Paint finish, as well as unique engine audio, wheels, and a Reel Life decal. The car will be using the Octane hitbox. As with other crossover items, most other customization items won't be usable with the DB5.

      Rocket League players will be able to pick up the DB5 starting on July 29 across all platforms via the Item Shop, where it will cost 1100 Credits. It will be a short stay though, as the iconic car will leave the store on August 4.

      This won't be the only James Bond-themed car to arrive at the free-to-play game either, with Psyonix going on to tease that more content from the franchise is planned for the future.
