Well, Dawn of War 3 came out, and I played it some, and I enjoyed it a bit as a fan of the 40k franchise. It wasn’t as good as DoW2, though, which is the game that convinced me to pick up tabletop wargaming. I feel like with multiplayer I go through phases of playing, where at first its cool and fun, and then I settle into a habitual grind where I’m not enjoying it but feel compelled to continue even if I’d rather be doing something else/playing another game.
I was doing some reading about Fire Emblem Echoes, and it seems like a great, back-to-basics Fire Emblem. Don’t get me wrong, I loved Awakening (it singlehandedly justified the purchase of my 3DS), but not everything from it had to be copied over. Like, in Awakening, the children units (your kids FROM THE FUTURE) made sense, because time travel was an important part of the plot, but in Fates, it was just sorta there because “ah, you loved this shit last game!”
…but I just started a new Stellaris game because its had some DLC and patches. My plan is to enslave a bunch of other races and build a Dyson Sphere. So that’s probably my gaming for the next month.
