I plan on really diving in after a couple more patches, but what I have played it is fun as hell.

Stellaris Console Edition 2.2 patch has dropped (4 gig update today, give or take, if you applied the larger one from 7-10 days ago in advance)

Not sure anybody else here is console'ing this one but for those familiar, this is the one that removes the original tile system and switches console over to districts & population management, etc.

With it comes the need (or not) to buy a new DLC season pass. First up is Synthetic Dawn, with two more to follow later. For now I'm gonna hold off on another season pass investment. I suspect there are many many hours of learning curve ahead of me with the massive overhaul of the game's structure. I'd hate to buy DLC and then discover that I don't like the game after the changes.

I just picked up Synthetic Dawn and Ancient Relics in the Stellaris Green Man Gaming 10th birthday sale Jon. Haven't had a chance to play a game with them yet. I think the switch over in districts, etc is easier to understand and deal with than the old way

I snagged the Deluxe edition on PS4 a while ago. Thanks for the heads up on the second expansion pass. I'm not gonna buy it right away but I'm gonna throw it on my wishlist and wait for a sale.

Took me about, I dunno, 2-3 hours of my first session to at least kiiiiiiinda feel like I had a little notion what I was doing.

The biggest difference to me thus far however isn't those changes, it's what feels like much more glacial pace for things like movement, research, and surveying. The original didn't have things popping like the first 100 turns of Civ or anything but it sure didn't feel this slow. Maybe that's to balance against the additional resources in place at start up (which are definitely higher than before)

And I'm playing on the 2nd lowest difficulty setting right now but the things I've run into feel like they're at least 1 if not 2 levels tougher than my last experience with the original.

My personal jury is still very much out on this, although the biggest drawback for me getting deep into the game is the fact I have to sit in a really uncomfortable chair (as opposed to the couch I'm normally on for gaming) in order to see well enough to read everything. I'm a marathon session guy with pretty much any/all games, but my (literal) ass protests if I try that with Stellaris. Even going up a full TV size since last played didn't help, I simply cannot read the text well enough with being less than 6 feet from the screen.

Yeah, given the massive changes in 2.2, I really don't feel the need to try to learn it at the same time as I'm dealing with unfamiliar starts. Heck, I went Random for my first try and got Hive Mind civ (which I haven't played) and was like "nope, let's re-roll that".

(the first of the next batch of DLC trio is Synthetic Dawn, and I'll gladly try an AI-based civ at some point I'm sure ... but not on Day One)

Biggest roadblock for me is gonna be playing with a Dualshock once I really dig in. The mechanics will be what they will be because I've never been able to get real deep into a game on my potato PC, but I've never really done grand strategy on anything but a mouse/keyboard before either.

fwiw, I've found it reasonably okay. Stellaris is about 2x - 3x tougher on a controller than, say, Civ 6 but it can't be too unmanageable since I'm able to do it.

I have significant issues with, I dunno, muscle memory or whatever applies when it comes to controllers. For example it's nearly impossible for me to switch between shooting games because the MW/COD layout is so ingrained.

The toughest thing with Stellaris controllers by far for me today has been that right stick is strictly pan/tilt rather than camera movement. (that's the Civ6 default, move camera and right click to center cursor ... and I've played a lot of Civ6 in the past few weeks).

Man, I couldn't play on PC games on a console knowing that I would be 6+ months (or is it 12+ months) behind the PC folks on updates. The Stellaris DLC's are significant structural changes plus the modding community is great.

Comes down to what you're after. Mods = PC, full stop.

Playability? Being totally up to date might be the sacrifice you make for quality of life.

You can always get the console playing experience on a PC just by having a console controller that's PC compatible. That also gives you access to patches and mods.
I usually don't care about mods unless it is for an old game. But patches are very important!
If you like playing NEW games PC is a MUST!

however...that double edged sword is when you play new games you'll have to run them on the lowest graphic setting usually since it's impossible to keep up with the tech.

new games usually stink anyhow tho unless they are indeis. Granted many indie programmers kinda suck tho too heh.

The option, for me, is play the occasional console port or don't play them at all. Short of a lottery win, there will never be a time when I can (personally) justify the cost of trying to stay current with a gaming PC.

For most PC games that port never comes and those remain simply stuff I watch on YouTube until the next thing I'm unlikely to ever play comes along & I watch that instead.

As of yesterday we're once again a dual-console household. First time in over a decade best I can figure.

Using -- or trying to at least -- a PS4 controller was one of the strangest / most awkward feelings I've had in a long time.

(Entirely driven by the kid's intense boredom and his desire to play MLB The Show again. He'd had it while away at school for the last two years thanks to the housemates)

Dabbling with MLB The Show 20 is my first experience with the franchise and my first baseball game in years. AND my first PS controller time in about a decade.

As a virtual beginner, one detail I appreciate quite a bit is not just the "dynamic difficulty" option but that they've split that into separate hitting and pitching difficulties that seem to scale independently of each other.

That's something that more games probably ought to try to incorporate.

Ostriv – a city building game

I played the first early access build, but shelved it to wait for more content. It has enormous potential.

Ostriv - a few hours in -

1. Definite Banished inspired
2. Can be slower than Banished if you keep it on the normal speed
3. Love the graphics and music. Very setting specific (Ukraine in early 1700s)
4. The minions build graphically not by stage. It's well done animation.
5. No grids or anything similiar.

6. Plays well. Industry makes sense.

7. Early recommenation not dissimilar to Atocep. Looks like a game with a good engine that could do a lot. As of right now probably has 7-9 hours o play before you have done everything. I have put in 7 hours today.

Honestly, I don't have a go to anymore. It's just catch as catch can at this point, whatever useful / interesting item I happen to spot via an occasional Tweet or RT, YouTuber, or something my kid passes along.

It's not what it once was, but RPS is still solid for PC gaming. IMO, it strikes the best balance between news, reviews, impressions, ect.

Outside of that it's occasional trips to PC Gamer and IGN. I like IGN for their TV show reviews as they see them through the eyes of gamers rather than critics. Kotaku is a shell of its former self and smaller sites tend to be really niche or simply don't carry enough content.

Opencritic is essentially a gamer-streamlined version of metacritic if you're looking for reviews.

Notched my first ever Victory Royale tonight.

Folks, when I win a game of Fortnite, I'm pretty sure that's a sign of the apocalypse scarier than anything 2020 has brought so far.

Well I guess it was nice knowing you all. Congrats Jon. I tried the battle royale version sometime ago, but it never really grabbed me. I'm much more interested in the supposed to be free someday Save the World version of the game.

I'm not sure I'm prepared to say it's grabbed me either. I picked it up a few days ago largely as a lark, as much to amuse the young 'un as anything. (Yeah, he enjoys seeing me REALLY suck at a game now & then, imagine that).

I don't care much for the b.r. genre, I'm largely entertained by trying using my very limited skillz to meta the XP bonuses, bonus whoring at it's finest. And the skill based matchmaking makes for a MUCH easier time of things now than when the game first launched.

The other benefit, honestly, is that it doesn't strain my eyes and worsen a headache that I've head for over 3 days now. It's not "close work" like Stellaris or even like playing COD, so I can play something on the console without my head hitting the eject button and departing my shoulders.

I just picked it up myself! Eager to fire it up once Iím done with Chimera Squad. Gears Tactics has, also, received a ton of positive reviews. Iíll definitely grab that once itís on sale. Current $60 price point is a bit steep.

This is why the gaming "press" is terrible. They to focus too much on issues other than the game itself in a gaming review.

Grab the DLC too (just the Blood and Titanium) if you can. Also, they have a great LP series on YT with the DLC. It's good for learning the ropes.

8 days, 160 matches give or take, of Fortnite and there's enough credit earned to cover the battle pass for a season.

Not bad for an old guy with poor reflexes.

Now if my K/D would just get over 1.00 that'd be great.
