Except racing games, what are you playing at this moment?

Personally I am tempted by the latest Mass Effect, but the reviews chill me a little bit. The firsts were so nice, with great characters and story.

I play Battlefield 1 too. The game stays what it is, but it's really looking very nice. affraid
I saw a motorsport manager review on french video game emission, it seemed nice for those who like management game.

Couple of years ago I got hooked on Hearts of Iron 3, a fabulous "grand strategy" game that uses the Clausewitz engine as other Paradoxe Interactive games such as Europa Universalis, Victoria or Crusader Kings. The game starts on January 1, 1936 : you can pick any country existing on that starting date and you get to manage every aspect of this country : politics, diplomacy, economics, technology, military, intelligence. A very complicated game indeed, but it's rather well done so not unlearnable either, even for someone like me who had never played such "grand strategy" games. A must-play for history buffs as it is thoroughly researched, and even more so if you like the alternative history genre. Pretty addictive too I must say :D.

I didn't like the fourth installement they released recently, ugly looking and you have to learn it all over again as they changed 95% of how things work in it Rolling Eyes .

:D Have fun mate ! I suggest you start with a smallish country to learn the ropes, Republican Spain is probably the best one to begin with as you very quickly get into the fighting part due to the outbreak of the civil war. Also make sure you get the community updates (another good thing about this game which is created with this in mind very much like rFactor was) such as For The Motherland and Their Finest Hour. There also is a WW1 add-on Smile. Another good advice I guess is to not hesitate to set many parameters on "auto" for your first try, i.e. mananged by the computer. Also reading the big readme pdf files can be a pain but it also is very helpful.

I don't play any other games except rFactor. Ocasionally I might load up NR2003 for a short race with the AI, or (a weekend) Silent Hunter 3 or 4 for a short patrol, but nothing else.

When I quit motorracing and get back into naval sims in the future, I will try to finally get my head around flight games, which I have tried but never really mastered reasonably. In general terms I am a history guy, so I like IL2 Sturmovik and the like, playing historic missions and campaigns. Curiosly I never was too fond of shooting games like Battlefield and the like, probably because I own weapons and have been shooting since I was strong enough to hold a rifle or pistol, so I don't find there anything special.

Hearts of Iron III, mostly been playing the WWI mod(haven't tried IV yet, looks complicated to me)
Europa Universalis IV (been playing since EUII, Love this game!)
Farming Simulator 17
War Thunder(mostly Tanks and by mostly I mean just Tanks)
Occasionally play World of Tanks, World of Warships.
Also occasionally play a couple AGEOD Games, Wars in America, Birth of America and recently go a hold of To End All Wars.

Trying to learn Command:Modern Naval/Air Operations.


Also occasionally dabble in RaceRoom Racing Experience. Recently let a 2 year subscription to iRacing expire as I didn't have any of the purchasable content and had told myself 2 years ago I wouldn't renew unless I could get some new content, and I finally went through with it this last December. Although with iRacing releasing dirt content next week, I may renew again.

Waiting suitable for me the events on the HSO portal, I pass the time usually on a saturday night in multiplayer driving these beauties.


Yes, ETS2(ATS), unfortunately to the status of the simulator is still very far away. But how and classic racing equipment, trucks cause I have a lot of interest.
By the way, if you suddenly find yourself in the vastness truck multiplayer, my nick Bohemian Rhapsody. Don't forget to say Hello! Smile

Well... A multi-tasker here so to speak...

I'm currently playing the 1st Mass Effect for the 1st time, really enjoying it so far. Thought of trying it after reading how it was very good in a review of Andromeda...
In the same Genre I've played Dragon Age Origins, 2 and Inquisition, looking to replay DA:O sometime soon to re-emerge myself in it's fantastic story Twisted Evil

Also playing P&C games Broken Sword (2 at the moment, own 4 of them) and Blackwell Unbound (2) in its 4 game series, some really nice games in my view, if maybe a bit short for the 1st one of the Blackwell games...

Looking to try out Bioshock, baught it on a sale recently and I've got it installed but haven't gotten around to starting it up. Heard a lot of good things about it so looking forward to the experience Smile

I'm also in the middle of a Divinity: Original Sin playthrough, currently gotten about 20 hrs in the bag, or about 10% of the game played according to the reviews I've read on the games. A nice little Tactical Combat game with a, so far, intrieguing story.
In the same Genre I'm also playing Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, so far also very nice, so far.

Total War Games, currently really enjoying Warhammer (as I've previously played the RTS games of the universe.

Occasionally I sit down for a bit of semi-competitive League of Legends play, but very occasionally as the community is a true pain...

A final game I'm currently playing is XCOM 2, so far intriguing and a good bit of fun, although it stresses the hell out of you at times, just like the original and the reboot Very Happy

Cheers Smile
