Started up Borderlands 3. Initial impression, it's great but they've locked the badass achievement system behind completing the story campaign. That sucks!

Put some more time into Stellaris. Got a decent, growing empire on - about 14 planets now. My biggest rivals (who don't trust me but aren't openly rivals yet) have about 23 planets, however I have an idependence treaty with a slightly smaller empire to the south who like me a very great deal.

Thankfully, between me and the big empire is a fallen empire... So if they get too big for their boots, they'll awaken the fallen ones and get crushed.

I have unrestricted expansion to the north and east, so spreading my tendrils out that way.





Yeah, I remember that feeling. Then it all came crashing down around me :lol:

Sure is, although I haven't played it since getting into Endless Space 2, so I expect there's been a hell of a lot of changes.

Wrapped up "Dust: an Elysian Tail" last night.

Now just need to finish "Bound by Flame" and I can move onto "GreedFall"

It's a pleasant game. Cartoony, but not in a bad way. A bit on the easy side. Plays wonderfully on K+M. Plenty of backtracking once you unlock new moves, but nothing ridiculous. Doesn't really outstay its welcome. I'd recommend it.

Act 3 of Bound by Flame. Combat is getting more difficult, but there's a story explanation for why the enemies are boosted, and I get a quest that'll weaken them. That's encouraging.

Occasionally. Not in system view at all ever, but on galaxy map with a lot going on, yeah, a little bit.

Vaughan Adventures.

Also why pick silly Beastmaster? Go Siren. COME ON AND SLAM. I've been speccing down the Brawl tree so far. My mate is playing Moze and we have a minigames where I will slam enemies into the air and he clay pigeons them out of the sky.

The Birb Brains and my Peace Turtles now have a border which is souring relations. It's awkward because the only way I can gain any trust from them is to guarantee their independence, but they also border a Fallen Empire who have holy places just outside of their system, so the Birb Brains keep trying to settle these gaia worlds and getting slapped for it. So if I guarantee their independence, I'll also inadvertently get myself in the shit with the big boys.

Bound By Flame. The last areas are a boss gauntlet. And the last boss is a proper, multi-stage, PITA.

Was up till 3 AM last night trying to finish the game, but I suspect it won't happen until the weekend. At this point (30 hours in), I'm too deeply committed not to see the game to its end.

EDIT: 2 hours later, all I can do is quote Fiddler (or was it Hedge?) from RG

Woo-Hoo! took me like 5 hours total (another 3 hours tonight), but I FINALLY beat that final boss.

Might do an evil run later on Easy, just to see if there's any major differences in the story. And try actually using the heavy weapons this time.

Combat got a bit tedious in Act 3, but that's probably due to me sticking with daggers + magic, and not even trying to master the heavy weapons after mid-way into Act I. If I actually tried to learn how to handle the axes, hammers and swords, the game might've had a decent chunk more variety.

Played around an hour if Untitled Goose Game. It's wonderful and very chill.

Playing as a cheeky goose is a novel concept.

Stellaris: the Birb Brains done goofed and researched warp drive. Now I have dimensional horrors feasting on the galaxy with 160k fleets. My strongest is 20k... Is this the end for the Tortle race?

Yeah, that was fun. I managed to beat them in the end but it took a while.
