Most recently, i've played Cibele, Dr. Langeskov, and Undertale. All super great games. Undertale, an rpg classic. Dr. Langeskov, phenomenal comedy narrative. Cibele, very interesting, esoteric games like that are why I love itch.

GAMes. Games are fun. So, what are you playing, and what do you like about it?

I've been playing Metroid Prime. Back when I was a kid first playing the game, I never made it past Flaahgra, so most of the game is new to me. I'm blown away by the level design in this game. The areas are a joy to navigate, with lots of verticality and paths that twist back on and over themselves. It feels like kind of like the half-way point between Ocarina of Time and Dark Souls.

I also finished a game of Invisible Inc. It's a really elegantly designed tactical game with a sort of X-COM-ish mission structure. I played a game on easy mode, so it will be interesting to see how the game plays on the harder difficulties (fortunately, a game of Invisible Inc takes about 4 hours, so it lends itself to multiple playthroughs).

If you enjoyed Prime 1, definitely play Prime 2. It's basically how Majora's Mask is to Ocarina of Time. Prime 2 does the Prime formula over again with a new world and an added mirror dark world akin to a Link to the past and a zillion other games. Level design is just as good as Prime and it's just a great game overall. Prime 3 is also good. It's a lot grander than the previous two, but can also be a bit more frustrating in that you often have some external force telling you where to go, which can kill the feeling of discovering places yourself. Still an awesome game though.

I played Prime 3 back around when it came out and enjoyed it quite a bit. I'm going to play 2 at some point as well.

I've been playing Squad. It is a first person shooter multiplayer realistic modern warfare game. Gotta work together with squadmates to actually coordinate movement rather than run around aimlessly shooting everyone like in other games. Guess that's what I like most about it; feels like you're really in a real life battlefield. Even the bullets have ballistic physics. Can't get over it. Best thing since sliced bread
