Curious what everyone is playing right now? I'm playing two games starting with Fallout Shelter. I loaded it up on my iPhone for a recent trip and have been super hooked on it after experiencing most of the updates i've only read about. The addition of quests make the game feel like a proper Fallout game plus the addition of Mr Handy and other quest rewards like Bottle and Cappy really kick it up since I first played it when it launched.

I'm Preying right now with Besthesda/Arcane Studios new shooter Prey. So far i'm about 30 minutes in and there is no tie in to the original Prey, which was something they said previously. It seems like a mashup of System Shock, Portal & Half-Life with an incredible amount of polish. It contains on of the most unique and inventive credit sequences i've seen that really punch up the beginning of the game and I hope there are other set pieces just an inventive sprinkled throughout the game.

How is Prey? I don't know anything about it, perhaps I should watch that video.

I'm playing Twilight Princess HD right now so that I can get a stronger Wolf Link in Breath of the Wild via my amiibo. I'm working on getting through the Cave of Ordeals and I'm near the end of the game. I'm also playing Fallout Shelter on Steam and Pokemon Go.

Prey looks super good! I can't wait to try it.

I finally bought Overwatch, and that's been fun. I love my Junkrat. Started replaying the Mass Effect Trilogy on Twitch. It amazes me how dated and stiff the first one seems in just a few years. Just finished Until Dawn for the first time. I thought it was really fun until my favorite character died in the last 3 minutes of the game. Still a bit salty about it.

I need to get the Mass Effect series, I've never played it. I have ME2, it came free on Origin.

I finished Twilight Princess HD, without finishing the Cave of Ordeals. I did, however, manage to get my data uploaded to my Wolf Link amiibo, so soon I'm going to jump into BotW with a better Wolf Link.

Not too much at the moment. I took a break from FFXV for awhile, but recently jumped back in to try the timed quests that started back up this month.

I've also dusted off my PSP and been playing Tactics Ogre: Let us Cling Together. It's a fun and surprisingly challenging tactics game in the same vein as Final Fantasy Tactics. The game hits that sweet spot of being challenging without being frustrating.

I am about 85 hours into Breath of the Wild. Still enjoying it quite a bit. I think this is the most that I have put into a game.

Playing Prey but I haven't felt up to it lately, crazy deep-head allergies are not great for sitting at a PC for extended periods of time. But that's re-awakened Mario Run for me. The balance changes they've made to the Toad Rally have really helped.

*growls at Travis's Mario Run Mii*
Seriously, the only Toad Rally I can never seem to win is against Travis lol (your Mii is unmistakable)

It's a good shooter that seems to be fairly interesting. I'm not very far in so I can't give a super complete view of the game but if you love really polished sc-fi single player shooters this one is well worth looking into.

Eat it Farnsworth!

Lol. I love the airship runs.

It seems the only games I'm playing lately are Rocket League and Dirty Bomb. Dirty Bomb is a fairly standard FPS in the style of TF2, or maybe even Overwatch but not so over the top. The fact that it's free to play is awesome, but what's really cool is that it's very much skill/class based, without any 'pay to win' bs.

I did sample the Prey demo on PS4, and it was absolutely amazing. So fun, and I look forward to picking it up soon (probably on PS4). It has this really cool way of feeling like the best first-person sci-fi games of the past, while still feeling fresh and new.

A few days ago, I decided to replay Fallout: New Vegas. I've finished it on the PS3, but I got it on Steam last year. Playing quite a bit of Fallout Shelter on Steam made me want to play another Fallout game again. I may hold off on Breath of the Wild for a little bit longer.

Fallout: New Vegas is one of those at the top of my Wall of Shame (such a tall wall...). Not that I ever finished any of the other Fallouts, but I really enjoyed the time I spent in 3. Next on the list, though, is going to have to be Darksiders 2, especially with the recent reveal that #3 will be coming soon. Too many great games.

After playing Fallout New Vegas, my enthusiasm dwindled. So, I'm back to playing Breath of the Wild. I'm not too far in, I just got spoilers from "the old man" and Impa. I'm glad that I get to use my Wolf Link amiibo, he really helps!
