What video game(s) are you playing?
« on: September 08, 2013, 03:45:04 PM »
Playing Outlast with headphones, for effect. I'm waiting for it to get dark to continue so I get the full benefit of this scary game.

Quote
Outlast is a psychological horror video game developed and published by Red Barrels for Playstation 4 and PC. In the remote mountains of Colorado, horrors wait inside Mount Massive Asylum. A long-abandoned home for the mentally ill, recently re-opened by the "research and charity" branch of the transnational Murkoff Corporation, has been operating in strict secrecy... until now. Acting on a tip from an inside source, independent journalist Miles Upshur breaks into the facility, and what he discovers walks a terrifying line between science and religion, nature and something else entirely. Once inside, his only hope of escape lies with the terrible truth at the heart of Mount Massive.

I think Star Trek 2013 will be next.

Lately I've been playing a lot of minecraft. I bought a spot in a server and now I'm hosting it there... I've been playing that quite a bit.... I'll be playing Tera quite a bit starting this week now though
O cursed spite that ever I was born to set it right!

I hear Outlast is a good game. Not really my thing, I find myself only lasting about 10 minutes before I exit them.  ::)

All I play are Civ V and TF2 PropHunt. If I ever play anything else it's for the cards and then it's straight back to those 2.

This morning (3:00AM) I'm playing Outlast with headphones on, in the dark. My old lady sneaks in on her hands and knees, grabs me and screams AAAARRRRR. I nearly poo myself.

Finished Outlast. It had a strange ending. Just starting Star Trek 2013.

Just tried it on the easiest setting, I suck at it, closed tab.

8ullfrog was right, Star Trek isn't the best game I ever played.

It has 9 levels of difficulty.  Once I got over 100k on 4.  But since then, I've gone up to the speedy difficult setting.  It's hard to get over 30k there.  Tetrises are work 12k points, though, so it does reward you even as it makes achieving them nigh impossible.

There is a mission in Star Trek Online that is only available on Friday the 13th. It rewards you with an extremely useful adviser officer, and is horror themed.

I can of course, understand your aversion to the MMO experience.
just one little time change so a draft board in 1968 turns down the bribe to accept "bone spurs" and we are home-free.

I stopped playing Star Trek and started Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs.

If you ever decide to play STO, let me know, I can help you gear up regarding your career. You choose to be a tactical, science, or engineering officer. Tactical is probably the closest thing to easy mode, and playing an engi is a stone madam.

I have been playing Megarace.  I finished the first game and am currently stuck on the second game.  I started playing without cheating and after great effort made it past the Tibet level.  A few levels later, I became annoyed with my measly funds and started a new game with the "money speed map" switches.

I'm stuck on Tibet again.

I finally got around to getting back to Tera. I'm about nine levels from max level right now. My team has been slacking on me for the past few months so I haven't been able to get anything done there.

Yesterday I completed all 100 levels of Frozen Bubble.  It might have been cheating because I was playing the android version and using the stylus.  I recall the PC version being harder.  Anyway, level 99 was very difficult, the trick is to keep trying.
