    What Games Are You Playing? (2022)

    StarCraft 2

    This is about the only RTS (real time strategy) game i still enjoy these days and right now i'm going through a replay of the entire campaign game of part one: Wings of Liberty on Hard mode.

    Game designer/ Story writer Chris Metzen did an outstanding job on framing all the individual combat missions within an epic space opera tale (that began with StarCraft 1 way back in 1998)...imho, of course.

    I will add that his literary influences would probably have included Isaac Azimov, Larry Niven, A.E van Vogt and (i might be drawing a long bow here) also very specifically Richard A. Lupoff's novella With The Bentfin Boomer Boys on Little Old New Alabama.

    Overall the story is a kind of Game of Thrones in space - with a Southern U.S.A vibe!

    I watched that cutaway. Games have become incredibly sophisticated, these days. What kind of monster wrecks a jukebox, like that?

      Elden Ring!! I am not a huge Dark Souls fan. The games are way too hard for a casual gamer, but Elden Ring really opens up to exploration and finding crafty ways to defeat the op bosses. I started playing after watching my son play and seeing lots of what I perceive as Moorcock influence. I am really enjoying it.

        My son thinks Elden Ring is the greatest thing since sliced bread, at the moment!
