I’m liking it! Didn’t realise Arcanine was so fluffy! I’m usually running like heck away from him.
I’ve been getting way into Starbound again recently, it’s such a beautiful game. Yeah, I’m aware the game had a recent spike in players and why that happened, but that’s certainly not the reason why I got back into it. Each day I discover some new mini-biome, a new dungeon with beautiful architecture, or just expand my colony, always accompanied by the amazing soundtrack.
So yeah, this game is pretty much my happy place right now, and I’d like to share some screenshots from my recent sessions.
Here’s the first Hylotl village I discovered, 2 days ago. I like how they worked with fore- and background blocks to kinda give the buildings a third dimension and make them look more elaborate. And of course, as the weeb trash that I am, I love the japanese architecture and all the items and details they put into the little shop.
Yesterday evening I first found a village of my own people, the clearly Aztec-inspired Avian, including this burial pyramid and also a huge tower they use for the ritual of ascension. Learning about their culture was quite fascinating, and I was surprised about how much care the devs put into the lore behind just one of the 7 playable races in the game.
And finally, also last night, two of my main colony’s tenants asked for housing for Glitch (i.e. medieval-style robots) guards to be built, so I went “shopping” for furniture in a fortress I bookmarked a long time ago and built my own little Glitch keep, with guards housed on the ground floor, a mess hall with a cook who sells food items, and a King Glitch safely in the highest room in the top right with no access for ground-based predators.
Are there any other people here who play the game or did so in the past? What are your stories? I’d really love to see what other players built in their colonies, please share some screenshots if you have them!
Should of named my character Jesus.
This is a nice view
Lol you can literally level up by KICKING TREES.
Is that Killing Floor, or No More Room in Hell, or what? Looks fun
What a beautiful game… I gotta try it out with my new GPU, see if I can get it to look that good.
This one, The second to last screenshot is hotline miami though.
Hotline Miami is sure a weird thing to call TF2.
I remember that Hotline Miami level. Had a few difficulties with it.
You probably won’t be able to get it looking “this” good, because it’s a bit edited in Nvidia Ansel and stuff, but it’s still a good looking game.
Yup, it is! Do you have KF on your library? If so, we can organize a match later/some day.
What do you think?
That picture it’s from Team Fortress 2
welp for some reason that last screenshot didn’t load for me when I made the comment, fixed it.
So I got Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.
I hate the games but love this one
Now I’ve disliked every AC game after the first one. AC2 was…okay. AC3 was decent only because I could hear NA languages. Black Flag was ONLY nice because I could see beautiful islands. Unity provided hilarious laughs due to bugs. Origins crashed so much it crashed the mode. So why did I take a chance on Odyssey when I clearly didn’t have a good history with the other titles?
So many people were saying it was “The Witcher 3 of the AC games”. Now I disbelieved that until about 5 days ago when my friend said pretty much the same thing. Suffice to say…I’ve been obsessed with the game. Uplay keeps track of some of the things you do in the game. I’ve killed about 1.5k enemies, distance traveled 446578 and am still going. And that’s not including the DLC, which I don’t own, but supposedly add a ton more content.
Here are some screenshots of the hero I picked, Kassandra (psst, I love her <33).
UGH Gotta go play more! the next one is supposedly going to be about…Vikings! I’m SO excited!
I have Killing Floor 1 and 2, but never played any of them. A few years ago KF2 was popular on YouTube though, and it always looked really fun. So yeah, I’d really like to try it
The bit I played of AC 2 I loved - just got flummoxed by the controls - couldn’t figure out how to climb that church faster than bro. shrug I’m obsessed with getting Black Flag and Revelations coz Ezio is love. Odyssey looks really good! Super even. Vikings you say? My memory so wacky, I must have heard about that before… hm.
I should probably explain my position.
The only reason AC2 was decent in my opinion was the craftsmanship around Ezio. I couldn’t really get into the growing storyline they plopped him into though, and how it concluded annoyed me beyond explanation. And as it went on, it seemed like they were refusing to expand beyond the foundations of AC. Which is understandable in some degree. You have to remember your game’s origins (the assassinations, the assassins etc) but hardly anyone wanted to play the same game pattern over and over again for 6? 7? Games. If that wasn’t enough of a problem, when games like AC3 and Black Flag came around, which offered in seemingly great story lines or mechanics (such as the American Revolution or commanding a pirate ship) they fumbled the ball by failing the execution. For example, in AC3 you get from point A to B so fast that you can’t get attached to anything, and it feels like the “war” is nothing more than a spat at a border. The characters other than your main character are flat and thrown in to remind you it is a historically centered game about Assassins. In Black Flag, they forgot about story and character almost entirely to focus on scenery and gimmick, so when you jump into what appears to be the lake, it turns out to be a shallow puddle. They aren’t terrible in any means though, I wouldn’t say that, just not something I personally would play in any free time. I don’t mean to knock anyone’s favorites, just wanted to express my opinions and why I might have felt that way about the games.
But I feel like, as someone who felt that way for the other games, in AC:O, they really seemed to have learned from their mistakes. I mean I would prefer that in AC:O they spoke more Greek (even should it not be the Greek of that time) but it is an incredible game.
And yea, I think the Viking information was a huge leak when Odyssey came out, so you might have heard about it then. I remember hearing about it then, but having bad impressions of the AC games, and despite loving the Scandinavians and Vikings to pieces, pushed it aside. lol

I may have killed off a few countries…
