    I just played for an hour and didn't get nauseous. So between the disabling of motion blur and my own medicinal concoction of 1/2 teaspoon of ginger powder mixed into my morning coffee, I might be okay now. We'll see.

    I've been playing D2: Lord of Destruction and enjoying the hell out of it. Though, I think PoD is a fork that has active servers.

    I can download PoD, if you need a second person.

    Agreed with all your points. I'm having a playthrough at the moment as well and I have to say, it's a lot of fun to play pretending VATS doesn't exist, using explosives and guns and just exploring around to see what's around the corner over there.

    Claw Viper Temple in Diablo 2 on Hell with a Cold Sorceress...that was hellish. Had to Resurrect my Merc 3-4 times, and my sorc died twice.
    I thought Cold Immunes were really immune, but it looks like cold spells work on some cold immune enemies. But for the second of the two viper bosses, I had to resort to running and casting Fire Wall. (Chain) Lightning is useless since it's so bloody slow.
    Definitely the worst area since Nightmare Duriel (but then I didn't realize I could respec at will with PlugY, so was stuck with lvl 1 Fire spells).

    Playing Bomb squad academy, a puzzle game. Quite short, I'm one hour in and I think it wouldn't take more than one hour to clear the remaining puzzles. It's based around electrical circuits (quite simplified, if my memories of high school physic serves me right), with the goal of each puzzle being to defuse a bomb, by routing electrical currents to the defusing part of it.
    There are a few elements (AND,OR,XOR gates, switches, timers, capacitors, cables to cut) to which to use. Each element is brought in a series of levels of increasing difficulties. Each bomb is on a timer, but the penalty is nill, since you can start again that puzzle immediately. It's kinda easy, but I think the devs went that way on the difficulty so that the puzzles are doable in the time limit (between 30s & 2 mins). Also it's weird how a few time I successfully defused a bomb, but had to go back and do it again to understand how it worked.

    I got it in the latest sale, I'd say it's a tad expensive at 4.99 for less than 2 hours.

    I'm also still playing Tomb Raider: the last revelation, I suck so much (which is understandable since it's the first time I'm playing a platformer like this), but it's still fun.

    Book of Demons - made of concentrated Diablo 1 nostalgia. Very fun and addictive.

    Ghost of a Tale - I love that little mouse, a beautiful, fun game with some really clever and funny writing.

    Kirby's Return to Dream Land (aka Kirby's Adventure) - I have a son, ok? Also, it's a really good game.

    Trying Titanfall 2. I'm usually not an FPS guy but I have to admit that it's pretty cool. I don't care much about the story but gameplay is solid and fun, despite me being shit at games in this genre.

    Playing Hollow Knight. Pretty solid game. Some of the bosses have retarded RNG/boss design. I feel this is a common problem with games that wants to be "difficult". But the rest is so solid that its still a good game.

    I still think not all bosses are good design, no matter how much git gud I need lol. I've just beaten the game and I do think it's a nice one, but it changes nothing to my previous point, since I'm a casual at that kind of thing.

    Some of the bosses are crap, but not due to RNG. They've all got tells enough to avoid. A lot of the dream warriors are too simple imo and I'm not a fan of the bosses with long invincibility cycles. Most of the boss fights are excellent though, especially considering the norm these days is stupid shit like doing some gimmick 3 times instead of actually hurting the boss, or running around for a while in some repeating pattern followed by being free to unload on the boss for 10 seconds.

    Been playing through Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition recently. First played it nearly three years ago but it didn't grab me like Demon's Souls did so I put it down for a while. Decided to start again as a pyromancer and I've been loving it.

    Did some grinding on Diablo III: Eternal Collection the other week but stopped after I hit level 70.

    I finished Bomb squad, the difficulty ramp up for the latest levels, with bigger puzzles. Still it took me less than 2h to finish and some in the Steam forum said that they finished it in less than an hour.

    Shadow of the Tomb Raider - Just more modern TR. I like it well enough. I feel like the tombs and puzzles are a little more complex than TR(2013), but that could be my imagination.

    Warband Prophecy of Pendor. I'm like 4 hours into this and it seems OK. After hundreds of hours of Warband I was kind of hoping for more significant changes. Finished Viking Conquest a few weeks ago and it nudged me back into bingeing on Warband but I may be done again.

    Installing ToEE as I write; caught some nasty cold and the last 3 days were really shitty so I decided for some "gaming comfort food" where I'll just go and fight my way around the place :)

    Just like that the entire weekend went into soul calibur 6. Having fun with the rpg mode, though some of the conditional fights are really pushing it.

    The Long Dark. I keep going back to that one. It's hard, depressing, and devours you with loneliness. And here I thought we played games for escapism.
