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

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.

      Rainbow Six Siege is gaining crossplay and cross-progression support in waves
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      With Operation North Star on the horizon, Ubisoft dropped another piece of Rainbow Six Siege news at its Forward conference today, revealing that crossplay and cross-progression are finally coming to the 70 million players strong tactical shooter. The features won't be supported across all platforms but will roll out in waves to different clusters.

      The game is launching on the Google Stadia cloud gaming platform on June 30, and starting from that date, PC, Stadia, and Amazon Luna players will all be in a single group of servers sharing queues and progression.

      Meanwhile, the Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5 players will be on a separate cross-play group entirely, likely to avoid the mouse and keyboard advantage PC players would have if they got in too. Unfortunately, this release is much further away, with Ubisoft planning to launch the capability in early 2022.

      The good news is that when this update rolls out next year, cross-progression will then be enabled across every platform, including PC, cloud, and consoles.

      Siege will be getting the new Operator, Thunderbird, Favela rework, and other major changes and fixes next week when the Operation North Star content update lands. The Rainbow Six franchise got expanded today at the Ubisoft Forward event as well, with the cooperative experience Extraction finally getting a full reveal and a release date.

      Riders Republic gets a September 2 release date, beta sign ups open
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      The massively multiplayer extreme sports game Ubisoft announced last year before quickly being delayed, Riders Republic, got its first confirmed release date during the E3 Forward presentation by the company today. Players will now be able to go biking, skiing, snowboarding, wing suiting, and rocket wing suiting starting on September 2.

      Ubisoft also shared a deep dive trailer at the show, catch it below, that gives a look at the Riders Ridge social space for the first time. This is where players will be heading into for learning to do tricks, managing their career, showing off their in-game creations, and jumping into the various multiplayer modes available.

      Similar to Steep, another Ubisoft extreme sports game, Riders Republic throws together a large group of players — somewhere over 50, Ubisoft wasn't clear — into a massive environment made out of mashed together American National Parks like Bryce Canyon and Yosemite Valley. 6v6 tricks-focused matchups, a versus mode for racing amongst friends, and free for all races are also included alongside a single-player career mode.

      The mass races are only for new generation platforms and PC though, with older consoles getting around 20 players instead for their multisport races at maximum capacity.

      The cross-generational title is coming to PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, as well as Stadia and Amazon Luna. Those who can't wait until the September release can sign up to take part in the Riders Republic beta program by heading over here.

      Far Cry 6 DLC will let you play as the villains of previous games like Vaas
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      Far Cry 6 still has a couple of months left in the oven before launching, but during the Ubisoft Forward presentation today, the game's very villainous season pass content was unveiled. The main antagonists of the series' three previous games get the spotlight in the DLC, where players will actually be jumping into their roles for the first time.

      Vaas from Far Cry 3, Pagan Min from Far Cry 4, and Joseph Seed Far Cry 5 are getting a DLC pack each that will "delve inside their minds to uncover their backstories, encounter familiar faces, and find out what it’s like to become the villain." Ubisoft has even brought back the original voice actors to expand on the content, letting fans take in the popular "meaning of insanity" quote one more time.

      Inside these twisted minds players will be going back to iconic locations from the previous games, and the longer they survive, the better their gear and perks get. Dying means starting the runs back over though, so it's a race to find all the pieces of the villain's psyche safely.

      Sweetening the package, Ubisoft is also throwing in the hit standalone expansion Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon as a bonus for everyone who purchases the season pass.

      Far Cry 6 comes out on October 7 across PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Stadia, and Amazon Luna. Ubisoft also released a new trailer for the main game today focused on Giancarlo Esposito's character Antón Castillo, see it above.

      Ubisoft gives a first look at its Avatar game 'Frontiers of Pandora'
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      Ubisoft announced Massive Entertainment is working on a AAA game based on James Cameron's Avatar movie back in 2017. After years of being silent, the mysterious game finally got its first reveal trailer today at the Ubisoft Forward E3 presentation, see it above. It also got a name attached to it now: Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora.

      While this is not actual gameplay, it is footage from the latest version of Massive's Snowdrop engine — the same one powering The Division — that is being used to develop the game. Through the trailer we get to see the lush jungles, various life forms, the Na’vi, and the familiar floating mountains of this bioluminescence-heavy alien planet.

      The title will be a first-person action-adventure experience that has players taking the role of a yet-to-be-named Na’vi. The game takes place in the Western Frontier, a never-before-seen region on the planet of Pandora where Avatar takes place. However, the storyline will be an original one that is separate from the movie universe.

      "Explore a living and reactive world inhabited by unique creatures and new characters and push back the formidable RDA forces that threaten it," says Ubisoft describing the setting. Massive is collaborating with Lightstorm Entertainment and Disney for the project's development.

      Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora launches sometime in 2022 and is officially skipping out on last-gen consoles. The title is coming out across PC, Xbox Series X|S, and PlayStation 5, as well as the game streaming platforms Stadia and Amazon Luna.

      Rainbow Six Extraction launches September 16, gameplay unveiled
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      After multiple delays and even a name change, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Extraction finally got a full unveiling during the Ubisoft Forward E3 presentation. Both a cinematic trailer and seven minutes of gameplay footage dropped today, catch the former above and the latter below.

      The fully cooperative experience makes use of 18 Rainbow Six Siege Operators to contain an emerging alien threat named Archæans. The 12 maps in Extraction will feature procedurally generated challenges, and the further teams progress in each environment, the more difficult the incursion will get. However, all intel gathered during a mission will be lost if the team fails to extract safely, so it's a gamble to keep pushing forward. These elements should be familiar to fans of the indie title GTFO.

      Meanwhile, failing a mission can mean an Operator is listed as Missing in Action, removing them from the player's roster until a rescue mission, as depicted in the cinematic trailer, is thrown together to get the Operator back.

      Rainbow Six Extraction also received a new release date today: September 16. It is coming to PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Stadia. Ubisoft+ members will gain access to the game on day one. Cross-play and cross-save support will also be there across all platforms.
