Grabbed Ryse:  Son of Rome from the Steam sale today.  It's one I've always wanted to try, but couldn't justify full price.  $10 is low enough to take a flyer on.  Will also be doing some Guild Wars 2 (hopefully...if it stops locking up my system) and maybe some Order & Chaos 2 on iPad (the pay to play elements are really starting to get to me).

It's finally time to play some Metal Gear Solid V now that I've finished up Mad Max.  Also maybe some Oktoberfestslywink

What is "SS:SE"?

EDIT: Oh, never mind.  I just Googled "Exotech Larva" and found out it's Serious Sam.

Anyway, I'll probably play some more Heroes of the Storm, Lego Batman 3, and Diablo 3.  There's another narrative game I've been playing as well that may be finished this weekend. paranoid

Serious Sam: Second Encounter. and i just finished the first of the final three levels, so it may well be that i'll reach the end in the next few weeks. i'm using the Serious Sam wiki this time around to find the tougher secrets, which i don't want to miss as there are some funny ones.

Was hoping to check out the Rainbow Six beta but I'm out of town and probably won't be back before it ends.  Also missing out on double bounties in Duablo frown

I had planned to get in some Rainbow Six beta but I may not get a chance - it's been busy. I did get a little more Mad Max time in last night. Completely cleared Jeet's territory and now I'm knee deep in Gutgash country.

Spent a little time with Ryse.  Looks incredible, and I'm still getting the hang of combat...jury is still out.

Tried Destiny again today, and after a few hours I think I can pretty safely say it's not my thing.  Hey, at least I tried something different.

Already kinda bored with Guild Wars 2, and I think I'll probably just go back to FFXIV.  It's supposed to get a new 24-man within the next couple weeks anyways.

Also picked up Undertale due to the overwhelmingly positive feedback it's been receiving.  Not quite sure I see what all the fuss is about yet...it seems like a pretty basic retro RPG to me.  I'm really early on though, we'll see if it gets better.  This piqued my interest though:

Undertale made me grin until my face hurt. Then it broke my heart. And that was just the prologue.

Undertale is a new RPG that just landed on Steam. It’s cut from the same cloth as stuff like Earthbound; that is to say, it’s charming, weird, wacky, and subversive, but not without substance. It might not look like much visually, but it’s no generic “retro” RPG. It can, among other things, lay claim to the unique distinction of being an RPG with plenty of battles, but—if you so chose—almost zero violence. You can engage with pretty much every enemy by talking to them or flirting with them or petting them (there are a lot of dogs) or a ton of other unique interactions that pop up on a per-enemy basis. They’re little puzzles unto themselves, and they’ve left me smiling every time. Or you can mash monsters into paste with your fists. Your call.

You have my full attention Undertale.  Let's see where this goes.

And, of course, there was the 62-20 pasting that my Utes put on Oregon last night.  That was kinda fun.  smile

ending this weekend on the very last level. currently slogging through the 'Corridor of Death'. every game in this series becomes even less subtle on the final level - it's many hundreds of enemies to take on, over and over. trigger finger is worn out.

the end of the previous level was a perfect example of why i like this series so much - on the way to this castle, you have to fight waves of enemies on a vast ice lake. you can't control your sliding and where you're going very well, but neither can the aliens you're fighting.

also ended up going back to Minecraft on the OO server. this particular server requires the use of like 80 mods, but i'm still having fun with it.
