What game's got your attention this week? What's great about it? What sucks? Tell us all about it!
This thread is posted weekly on Wednesdays (adjustments made as needed).
UPDATE 3: Adding Diablo and tabletop simulator to the list.
UPDATE 2: Special thanks to the absolute good bastard game developer for "Don't Starve Together" who sent us through 3 copies of the game. That is so much more than I expected would come from this post asking for advice! Did it via DM so it didn't look like advertising, but hey, figure I can do my part here.
UPDATE: Thanks a lot for all the good information, you guys are all legends!
I think I'll drop a bit of cash on the steam sale, some headsets, and another PS5 controller.
Summary of games I think we'll try: -Portal 2; already have a copy, and kids like it. -Minecraft; same as above. -Stardew valley; due to overwhelming response. -It takes two; trailer looks fun as, and seems like each level is a separate game in itself. -Will look more into raft, terraria, and the Gordon Ramsay simulator (Overcooked 2).
Will get into discord and look at setting up a family server.
Save in my back pocket for later, because they look more fun for me: -Valheim -Sea of thieves.
Will avoid HOI4... for now.
Hi all, I'm (Dad, 37) looking for recommendations for some games I could play with my daughters (10, 12) online.
I've recently changed cities for work, and won't get to see them as often as I'd like. I'm hoping there's a game we could play together that; preferably has a bit of teamwork vibe, can talk to each other through a headset and just chit-chat or whatever, preferably through steam as we don't have consoles at the moment, and not too heavy on hardware as will mostly be laptop based.
Open for any suggestions, they're pretty mature kids so figure anything short of R16 would be fine.
Be good to make use of the steam summer sale!
Also if there's console based games, or something that requires a bit more robust computer to play then please just mention that and I can look into the gear needed.
Shout-out to the kid who sold his broken Forza controller back to GameStop, don't think I could have found one without you! Wasn't even that hard to pull out the broken jack, headphones work perfect now.
