Since there wasn't already a thread I figured I might as well throw this up. Because people aren't sick of all my other threads already, right? :wink:

I have been sucked in to Infectonator 3 pretty hard. At its core it is very similar to something like Plague, Inc, but having the extra steps of controlling the infection for each area and crafting zombies adds enough extra that it seems a perfect loop of "just one more" for me.

I'll probably also jump back into City of Brass if I get time to break up the pace.

    Interesting... went to check out Infectonator 3 and it says on their website "Infectonator 3 has not yet been developed, why not play one of our other games below". :)

    Finished up Far Cry last night. Yes, the first one.

    Fired up Bionic Commando, and have bounced off it by trying to kb/m it.

    LOL, well maybe my version of Steam is connected to the future, then. :lol:

    I finished up Battletech Friday night and have been bouncing back and forth between Destiny 2 and Conan Exiles since. i feel like I am hitting the limit on what you can do solo in Conan, so I might just try joining a PvP server and playing around with getting killed repeatedly.

    Aah, that's too bad. I had kind of worried that like Ark you would be a bit too limited as a solo player in Conan and it sounds like that's how it goes.

    Just more Elder Scrolls Online for me. I'm close to wrapping up my third zone (finished Vvardenfell and Glenumbra, almost done with Stormhaven) and working my way up to 50 (just dinged 42). Started running dungeons as well, which have been funner than I was expecting. They seem to be kinda mindless tank & spank though, at least compared to some of the ridiculously complex mechanics I got used to in FFXIV. I'm sure that'll change at higher levels.

    After playing some more, solo isn't really that bad... it isn't really much different from Ark though. I moved to a (official) PvP server and didn't see anyone all day and got back to where I was on my local game. For most of the day there were 7-10 players on and a little chat going on. I finally decided to go for a run after setting up my crafting stations to make all the stuff I needed for a decent-sized Tier 2 base... and when I came back I couldn't get on.

    The official servers have "raid time." Player structures are indestructible, except for a specific time window. On the server I was playing on I think it is 5-11pm ET. The server was 40/40 every time I checked... and I checked a lot. Basically I had a Tier 1 house, full of Tier 2 crafting materials and I couldn't get on to check on it. I did what any sane person would do... I started a character on another server.

    The official server have gathering set at 2x, but this server had it at 1x so I didn't get as far as fast, but I got some decent levels for the time invested, did some exploring and built a starter home.... again. This server was running around 30-32 people at prime time and had the cap set at 50-ish.

    This morning I was finally able to get on my original server and found that I was alive and my building was still intact. I guess it was too far out of the way to be worth to anyone equipped to harm it. On the other hand, I know somebody found it because all the bricks were gone from my furnace. My furnace was poking through the wall of my base so you could access it from outside. Oops. Bricks are probably the most annoying thing to make and that was the last thing I needed to prep for my new base. It only took me about a half hour this morning to recover what I had lost, so not a big deal.

    The real question is what do I do tonight. I'd rather play with 2x gathering, but I do not want to fight for a spot on a server. The game just hit release last week so I assume people will get bored and move on... hell, I'll be playing State of Decay 2 in a few days.

    If anyone wants to play with me on the server with space, (I think) it is: 134.255.251.171:23000 If the name comes up with Mixer.com that's the place. It has RP in the title. From what I can tell, that means at the end of character creation change your name from your steam name to something more thematic.
