    https://store.steampowered.com/app/528460/Rogalia/ I'm also playing this one. I don't know about the MMO part, as I basically play alone. I think there are a few players on the Andromeda server, but I don't know about other regions.

    Gogo, if I remember right, you like horror stuff. Dude, do I have a free Steam game for you: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1111210/The_Backrooms_Game/ I have about 6 total hours playing this game. It seemed easy enough at first; check watch every 30 seconds for the "press E" prompt, don't check watch too often, don't look at the entity, don't run unless you hear a static sound, don't look at the lights. But in the heat of the moment, you forget some of that stuff. And that's when the creepy noises start, the walls and floor start swimming, the vision starts dimming.

    Minecraft was cool, but it was very blocky. I decided to go back to Rising World. I found a beautiful stretch of beach, so I built a boardwalk from the beach to the ocean, and at the end built a.....hmm, I'm not quite sure what I'd call it....... maybe an open-air safari lodge. I put glass sections in the floor so I can watch the water under my feet, then I made the ceiling out of wooden grates and put the wavy glass panes underneath, so it looks like mesh netting when I look up at it. Instead of walls, I put a layer or two of stone skirting, so I can fish right off the side of this thing and not fall in. I put a semi-enclosed set of stairs in the center for easy swimming access. Right before I logged on here, I was watching the sunset while grilling some venison and fishing for plaice. Minecraft is cool, but In Rising World, I can create the vacation spots that I can't quite afford in the real world.

    I had just a heck of a time finding something to scratch a particular itch I have. I want to mine, farm, build a house, have a pool, and have some sort of vehicle to cruise around in. Ya might think "dude, are you serious? That is everything, from Empyrion to Starbound". And that's true; I know how to build a pool in Starbound, and you can even have a pool in Empyrion if you build over water. If I remember right, Empyrion even has a type of plaster texture, so I can build those weird Richard Meier homes I love so much. Empyrion ticks most of those boxes nicely, but I don't really want to have to defend my home, I'm looking for something a little more relaxed. I could build any home I desired (with pool) in Rising World, but no vehicle. They have horses and mules in Rising World, and that's cool, but Rising World has too little challenge. All you have to do is find one plant or fruit-bearing tree, and you're set. Crops never wither or need water; you have a whole field in absolutely no time. The game's awesome as far as graphics, but there's just too little challenge at this time. I intended on saying a lot more, but I have a high fever at the moment and feeling a little bogus, so long story short, I think I might give Planet Explorers another go. I haven't tried that one in years. I know it's mostly negative reviews, but I think most of that's something to do with mp being cancelled, which isn't exactly a concern of mine. I wish I would have waited a few years to get it, though, as I see it's now free. But since I already own it, I think I'm gunna give that a try when I kick this fever crud

    Diablo 2 Fallen

    I honestly don't know, I've never used Shadow Step before. But as long as you know, it's all good. I have nothing further to report as far as bugs and whatnot.

    Diablo 2 Fallen

    I am noticing one issue, with the Sorceress. I know how to use the teleport spell; you point your cursor where you want to teleport to. But when I put it into a combo, let's say I cast nova and then teleport, she stays put instead of teleporting where my cursor is pointing to. I don't know if teleoprt isn't supposed to be put in a combo, or if teleport is supposed to be cast before other spells in the combo, but that's what I'm encountering so far.

    Diablo 2 Fallen

    I never really tried this mod, due to the fact that I love clustering maelstrom and the piping in the Blood Poison set. But I just tried it out; those two things are such a tiny price to pay when you consider all that this mod adds. Thank you so much for this mod

    I did have a laptop, and there's no way I could have run it. I game on my desktop now, and it runs just fine and dandy. All I know about my desktop is it's got an i5-2400 processor and a GeForce GTX 1050 graphics card. Some of my customers scoff, "blah blah old and outdated blah blah", but I can run both Sacred games, Doom, Killsquad, Fallout 4, and a few others just fine. I also hear "you gotta upgrade. Blah blah Windows 10, blah blah such and such and such cpu, graphics card blah blah". Why upgrade, to join the " (╯︵╰) I can't run Sacred 2 anymore" crowd? Bonk, wrong answer. If it's not broke, don't fix it

    I can't remember exactly when, but some time later this year, The Witcher series is coming to Netflix. I'm kind of stoked about that

    Don't you have a laptop, like with a wooden finish, or am I thinking of someone else? Can you change out components on laptops these days? If so, that's freaking awesome!

    I was so excited for this one. I can't believe I uninstalled Sacred 2 for it. I uninstall Sacred because it's so easy to install and uninstall; if I uninstall Fallout 4, I have like 90some mods I have to reinstall. Anyway, I liked this game. But today, I was looking at the dev diary, and saw this : Novarama [developer] 37 minutes ago Explaining? Who needs explaining? Where we're going we don't need a damn explanation! BlackjackGT 1 hour ago Love it. Though I wish you guys would put a concise 1-sentence explanation of Vector on the inventory screen so every newbie wouldn't have to spend so much time trying to understand the most important concept in Killsquad. That is a crap-poor attitude to have. Let's say you came into my store and said "Ryan, I don't get it: there are purple stones over here and purple stones over there, but these are called 'amethysts' and those are 'fluorite'. But they look almost identical! So, besides the price tag, what's the difference?" I think that's a valid question. So, you ask "what's the difference", and I respond with "Explain what? You don't need a damn explanation; those over there are fluorite, and the other ones are amethyst", isn't that kind of douchey? Maybe I'm getting more sensitive as I get older, but when a customer asks for an explanation, the salesman saying "you don't need an explanation" is in poor form, it's a buttmunch move. It's too late to refund, but I'm not endorsing this one. I'll tell ya something else, it is hard to find..... I hate using this term, but I already wrote a whole wall of stuff..... Diablo clone, these days. I'm tremendously disappointed with how Wolcen is turning out, I was never really impressed with Last Epoch. And I can't find much else. Is LifeLeech still in production? Because it is not empty, patronizing b.s when I say that I think the market sincerely needs it.

    I did indeed. My system so far runs it like a champ. You can either solo the game, bring up to three friends, or go into the public section and up to three people are randomly assigned to your squad. So far, I've been able to solo the game with all four of the different characters.

    I'll be keeping Killsquad, though it wasn't quite what I was anticipating. I'll be real, though, I'm not sure that I'd like it quite as much if it didn't have... hmm.... basically Jason..... in a spacesuit. He even has a hockey mask.

    I love Surviving Mars. But I miss loot and the thrill of a boss kill. I just impulse bought Killsquad: https://store.steampowered.com/app/910490/Killsquad/ because yesterday was my birthday and I felt like treating myself. I'll report back in a few hours once I decide whether or not I'm keeping it.

    I've never seen the show, but I've seen things that I think are similar. I don't mean to be sanctimonious, but if I were gay, I'd be offended by crap like that. Homosexuals aren't mystical, mythical creatures that we need to capture and analyze: they're people, just like any other person. Besides being married to a woman, how is my life any different than any gay man's on the planet? I don't have to deal with the hate of homophobia in my life that some individuals deal with, and I don't think I'll ever truly understand what it's like unless I faced that myself. But besides that area, how are my hopes, dreams, aspirations, inspirations, frustrations any different than anyone else's? One of my gay friends told me "you don't have an aspect of your life that you have to keep secret, like it's some sort of dirty, vile taboo. That's the difference." I don't have a secret? A secret that some don't understand even if I explained it? I sure as hell do, just not the SAME secret. It's not the same thing, but there are similarities. Let me tell ya, society as a whole doesn't exactly accept former adult entertainers with open arms. My only saving aspect in that was the type of adult entertainment I was in kept my face and most of my distinguishable features (like tattoos) covered. I was over at a friend's house, in their linen closet. I'm not a snoop; all I did was touch the shelf and it collapsed. Hidden in the back was a stack of particular DVDs, some of them featured me. I tried to fix the shelf, but the wood had split in areas. I swear that I have the anti-Midas touch sometimes. I could have just thrown the towels back in the closet, but I didn't; I told him the shelf broke. He looked embarrassed. I could have made things very awkward by telling him that I starred in his collection, but why complicate things even further? All I said was that I didn't judge him, because I used to be an adult entertainer. The rest of the day was awkward and I never heard from him again. Not the same as "coming out", not even along the same lines, but there are similarities. Anyway, I've seen some of those shows, and they treat homosexuals like they're a recently discovered aborigine tribe, like you're watching a program on National Geographic, with that one host (damn, I can't remember his name) hiding in the bushes whispering to the camera "here, we see the local gay man as he goes about his day. Look at his diet, so similar to ours. Here, you see him preparing to conduct an elaborate tribal mating dance.......". Pardon me, but eff that. We're all human, all subject to the human experience. All of our experiences are slightly differently flavored, but they're all equal.
