Yeah, I'm having a lot of fun, too.

Sure, the theme is a big part of elevating it, but I think we actually need an MP shooter that is more accessible.  We're a little too far down the rabbit hole so far as all the other ones go for new players (or those of us who only play lightly) to really get into them.

I still like the others, but I'm really happy to have this.

I know this is getting mediocre reviews but I am LOVING this on the PS4.

Fallout 4, maybe some MP game if I can pull myself away from Fallout.

Probably Fallout.

Before you buy anything, remember that the Steam Autumn Sale is due to start next week.  It'll be the best opportunity to pick up whatever you want to play at a pretty steep discount.

In addition to EngineNo9's recommendation of The Old Republic, you might consider Guild Wars 2.  It has no subscription fee past the initial purchase and is very solo-friendly, making it a great choice for anyone who wants something they can casually pursue at their own pace.

If you like action RPG games like Diablo, there are several PC exclusive ones, like The Adventures of Van Helsing, Victor Vran, and Grim Dawn which is in Early Access.  If you want an online action RPG there is Path of Exile and Marvel Heroes, both of which have big audiences (I'm a big fan of Marvel Heroes).

For more traditional MMOs I've heard that Star Wars: The Old Republic is quite good at this point.  Of course WoW is still great, but is quite old so may or may not have aged well in your eyes.

Starcraft 2 is now finished with all 3 games out, if you're looking for a traditional RTS.  If you were ever a fan of Dungeon Keeper you could check out War for the Overworld or Dungeons 2.

Cities: Skylines is a great city builder if you were a SimCity fan in the past.

Not sure if you have any interest in the survival games that have really taken off on PC in the last couple years, but there are plenty of options from ARK to DayZ/Rust/H1Z1.  I'd say that ARK felt like the most complete one to me when I played it and is getting regular updates.

So today I ordered my first gaming PC in almost 7 years! Since then, I've been predominately Xbox and PlayStation gamer.

However, I'm ready to get back into PC gaming and I need some recommendations and ideas!

I'm really looking for games that I can only get for the pc. Back in the day, I enjoyed casually playing mmorpg's like Everquest 2, Dark Age of Camelot, and Asheron's Call 2.  Loved Diablo II, Age of Empires 2, and Guild Wars.

I'm planning on picking up Fallout 4 and maybe Age of Empires 2 (for old times sake). But other than that, I'm clueless.  I don't get much time anymore to game, so anything that's a time sink, I'm out. (I realize Fallout 4 is a huge game, but I'll take my time playing that).

Any suggestions? Was thinking about a casual mmorpg like The Elder Scrolls Online for my mmorpg fix. Should I even consider WoW? Never tried it.

Any ideas?

Here's PC Gamer's lukewarm (73/100) review:

*While I can't argue with the take, he doesn't mention the Missions/Survival mode at all (my favorite of the non-MP stuff so far) nor the Traits passives system at all.

*I agree the various blaster number/letter mash-ups don't help me understand at a glance what each would be useful for. I'd love some "nickname" option so we could type a few words description (maybe as a "hover popup" description so it wouldn't clutter interface) as, well, a memory aid.  icon_smile

*I've actually enjoyed the smaller, simpler MP modes. I just view them as helping get one's feet wet before trying the more ambitious modes. I find them less frustrating than the bigger supposedly "better" modes but maybe that'll change with time.

*I question the idea of putting new MP modes behind a paid "Season Pass/Expansions" firewall, if that's really what EA DICE's going to do. Wouldn't it make more sense to update the base game with the additional gameplay modes, and only set the new levels as paid content? Then again, maybe the new gameplay modes and maps are hooked together.

Sorry to ramble. I'm just trying to say that while I enjoy the game, I don't have my head in the sand about all the ways it could've been better.

Will be hitting Arkham Knight pretty hard. With Mad Max I found some discipline in sticking to one game through completion, and I'm hoping to keep that trend up with AK. So far, so good. I'm reading a lot of Batman comics these days so I'm really enjoying the game, even the side content.

A cryptic Arrowhead Twitter post suggests another announcement should go out next week some time.  icon_smile

@xxxxxx Still no details, though keep an eye out for any announcements in the next week smile
While playing Star Wars Battlefront on Origin, I noticed that Origin DOES let you link to your PlayStation Account; however, not an option on Steam.

So folks asking "why can't I transfer all my Helldivers stuff to Steam" or "why can't I get a free Steam copy since I bought it on PSN" should maybe consider that Steam and PSN have no relationship. Which isn't to say that linking Steam to PSN account would mean any of the above would happen, but perhaps that account linking ability would at least make it more technically feasible?

I realize Origin isn't Steam exactly so maybe it's folly to say "well if Origin will let you link over to your PlayStation Network account, why can't Steam do that?" Probably it's ... complicated.  icon_smile

One could speculate that it's because EA/Origin isn't in the hardware business, whereas Steam is pushing Steam Machines as essentially competition to consoles like Sony's. Then it's like, well if Sony saw Steam as evil, why would it let its Steam Mobile division OK a Helldivers PC version at all? So I figure it's probably complicated.

fwiw I adored the first game, and the whole dungeon battle mode stuff eventually spun off into a separate game, but eventually just tired of the whole micro-managing every attack aspect of the interface. The games were increasingly sluggish on my old PC and maybe some day I should revisit with the gaming PC to see if I enjoy it more.
