Started The Banner Saga 2 after I downloaded my savefile from the first game.

...Also new waifu on normal. About 1/3 done. Still getting silver to gold (mostly gold) stage rankings.

Finally picked up Forza Horizon 3 so I'm playing that and the excellent HellBlade.

Shadow of Mordor. I've heard good things, so nows the time to give it a shot.

I bought Starcraft Remasted yesterday since it came out. Only played a few hours so far but this sums up my feels than any words can...

More Shadow of Mordor... it got frustrating fast though. Some of the opponents just make it annoying like the Arkham series did. Though i do like how the dying mechanic works in this game though.

I found the same thing when I played the game. It gets a little easier in the second half when you gain the ability to actually possess Orcs and do an AoE styled attack, but until that point it's really easy to get overwhelmed as what's his nuts has a very hard time focusing down a single target until they die.

I'm trying to play through DOOM and ORI AND THE BLIND FOREST,
but anytime I go on my PC I end up playing PUBG, CS:GO
or LOL (which I'm trying to learn how to play)

I'm new to PC, but I want to use my PC to play the older games
I missed on my consoles. And I want to keep playing the
new games on my PS4.

So many games I want to play but I can't stop playing Heroes of the Storm! I've been heavily debating playing Kingdom Rush again, I still haven't finished it. One of the best tower defense games I've played, so addicting!

In the beginning it was super easy because it's simply Batman with swords. But it's not quite as tight as Batman, kinda more like Origins, so it feels off to me. A lot of the time I feel like he's not responding to what I want him to do, especially when it comes to the bosses that can only be hurt one way. Also the ranged Orcs piss me off.

My "arch-nemesis" Orc was this piece of shit ranged asshole who kept killing me from across the map when I was beating the piss out of hoards of Orcs. Every time I started a riot this fucking turd burglar would show up. It was so gratifying when I finally caught him alone and cut his fucking head off.

There's just too many games out there now, and then all the new ones I want to play all come out at the end of the year...

I beat Bayonetta on normal! I thought I was done with the game, but when you beat it on normal you get alternative costumes, and I was all like:

I'm never allowed to stop playing this game apparently.

Going to be starting ShadowRun: Dragonfall (again) to actually play it to completion this time, rather than getting a 1 hour look at how the game plays and what it's all about.

Also, played The Banner Saga 2 in there. It is fun like the first, but god damn it if I wasn't frustrated by the story.

Anyway, if you liked the first game, I'd recommend playing the second. It is more of the same, which if that's your thing then you will likely enjoy it. The tight run time also keeps things from outstaying their welcome and moves the story along at a brisk enough pace to not have long periods of uneventful meandering.

My daughter just started playing Bendy and the Ink Machine, and I'm playing by proxy. Seems interesting enough.

Shadowrun: Dragonfall. I'm about halfway through it...apparently. I like it. It's like a short version of a CRPG, which is nice given I find the 100 hours a little offputting. It's not as involved as some of the longer more complicated stuff, but it hits a nice RPG-lyte balance. I like it...a lot.

Rivals of Aether. It's like smash, but instead of being obnoxiously full of unbalanced characters it has a much tighter roaster and a great focus on competitive play. It plays more like a fighting game than smash does, which is something I like. It's not really grabbing me by the nuts like smash did though. I'm not sure if that's because I'm too preoccupied with real life shit, or because it's not as fun as smash. The initial time I spent with the game has been really fun so I'm thinking the former.

I'm playing Hearthstone, I've done that reqularly for a couple of years. I've played a lot of Dead Cells as well, but I'm at the point where I'm done. I've also tried The End Is Night for a couple of hours, it hasn't grabbed me too much. Multiplayer-wise, I've mostly played PUBG and Gigantic.
Can't wait for Destiny 2, I'll be playing with my PC group of friends :D

Tried to finish Shadow of Mordor and got up to the last few missions, but I quit. I hate the shitty mechanics they've got in this game, especially having to Brand high level targets. I just don't give a shit about the game to keep trying. Now to find something else...

Shadowrun: Dragonfall. I didn't play it for a week. Was doing some other shit. Was easily able to hop back in and I think I'm in the final stretch of the game. Think is the keyword there. There are aspects to the game that I really like, but a few minor things that really grate on me as I progress through the game. How finicky the mouse inputs are when it comes to moving your character around and interacting with stuff is really starting to piss me off.

Just started the beta for Battle Chasers: Nightwar.
I don't think it's terribly well-balanced for PC - I know it's a beta, and all, but I don't think I have a really bad notebook, as I do have a Dell Inspiron 5557, which has an i7-6500U CPU running at 2.6GHz with 16GB of RAM and a NVIDIA Geforce 930M, and the game still didn't really move all that fluidly, even changing resolutions and stuff (the only thing that actually had any effect was taking out V-SINC, but that made the game kinda ugly)...

Thank God I chose the PS4 version of it, in the Kickstarter, anyway.

The game does look glorious, tho. And seems fun. SeemsGood

Based on the rest of your post you mean "optimized", right?

Also your laptop has the graphical processing power of a toaster.
