Electronic Games - What have you played recently?

City of Heroes is apparently back, I was invited to a game a few days ago and enjoyed it as much as ever. Showing its age a bit now, but then so is the PC I run it on, plus what I liked about it back in the day was the community. Hard to judge how well that has survived, but apparently the servers are run by diehard fans as a passion project with approval from NCSoft.
 
I’ve just started playing Immortals: Fenyx Rising. It’s a really cool action RPG with strong vibes of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Fun game, lots of puzzles to engage with, combat just the right side of button bashing to make it interesting without being ‘Souls’ hard.

And it doesn’t take itself too seriously either, with a fun narrative laid on by Prometheus and Zeus (it’s a Greek mythology themed game…).
And six months later, I just finished the core game. It’s the first game since Wyldermyth to really hold my interest for a long play.

There are various ‘new game +’ and DLC options but it seems like a natural time to pick another game off the pile to play. Probably Jedi: Survivor…

Which server did you pick?
I'm on "Everlasting"
 
After watching far too many YouTube videos, I took the plunge and bought Dragon’s Dogma 2. I’ve only just started playing but the game is very poorly explained. I don’t even know how to use a healing item!

The thing that swung it for me - someone described the characterisation for the pawns as like being at a LARP event, with slightly stilted dialogue and cod accents - that’s my kind of gaming experience! :D
 
I'm playing Matrix Games' version of WW2 boardgame Valor and Victory. It's similar to Squadleader but without the rules headaches. Having fun with the scenario editor as well, and editing some of the counter values where I disagree with them. I think I might be falling down some kind of rabbit hole...
 
Geneforge 2 dropped this afternoon... This is the remake of the original Spiderweb game; it's pretty morally ambiguous because of the basic premise of the game - the Shapers make creations which they control, but they limit their creations' freedom. From a European perspective, it looks remarkably like chattel slavery. The first 2 games are reasonably straightforward and you can play as a neutral, but the 3rd game in the series is really bad - you have to pick one side or another, and both are equally bad.
