Skyrim is coming back to XB1, with all of the sanctioned mods built in and a graphical update. Plenty of bugs will be fixed, and some new stuff added, though no more "questing" content as it appears at this point. Comes out OCT2016. Looks like I'll need to buy back in. The visuals looks freaking outstanding!

With the graphics mods I use, my visuals already look outstanding. Of course, I also have a PC that can handle it all.

I’m looking forward to the Skyrim remaster, definitely.

Currently re-playing Bloodborne (with The Old Hunters DLC) and Fire Emblem: Awakening. I never used to like RPG videogames, but I find my tastes changing.

Pokemon-Go!
Because, why not? What's wrong, a 40-year old man can't play Pokemon anymore?

Thankfully, not Pokémon: Go.

However, I am playing an on-and-off game of Marvel: Avengers Alliance 2. When it works, its decent. But that's only 20% of the time.

I'm anxiously awaiting my print copies of the new Call of Cthulhu at the moment :)
To make the wait feel shorter I found an old game on STEAM called CoC: Dark Corners of the Earth, that I've never played before.
A good and quite spooky game! Not suprisingly the graphics look quite outdated.

Pillars of Eternity 2 was just released, which is a lot like the old Infinity Engine games (Baldur's Gate, Icewind Dale, Planescape: Torment). Of interest is the pen and paper game under development to go along with it, of which there was a 46 page preview released to backers. There's not enough there to play the tabletop version yet, but it's kind of neat so far.

The in-game system is just far enough from D&D to not just be a relabeling, but close enough to sort of know how things work when you sit down to play. Some of the classes are reminiscent of D&D, but others like Chanter and Cipher are a little further from their inspiration. Cipher is sort of debuff, hex, and psychic attack class that manipulates souls, and the Chanter is like a bard, but has these Chants that have cool names like "At the Sight of their Comrades, their Hearts Grew Bold" and "Sure-Handed Ila Nocked Her Arrows with Speed" which makes it feel like that ST:TNG episode "Darmok".

I just picked up the original Pillars of Eternity. Enjoying the story line, though I find the combat abilties of the various classes and how they all interact very confusing. Close enough to D&D to seem familiar but different enough to have a learning curve.

Rarely playing S.O.L Stone of Life EX. It gets very boring and there are large amounts of time where you can't really do anything -- even grinding gets pointless since you end up with items you can't identify without spending real cash. So, I play like once a day, maybe, just to get the daily freebie and maybe explore a dungeon before quitting.

Started playing Borderlands 2 with my son. Its OK. The main thing for me is this is with my son who still lives in AZ. So we spend time together via the internet playing multi player games every Sunday morning that we can.

I don't know if I loved the game or not, but it's certainly a good shooter with a lot of cool missions. The Farcry series just gets better and better with it's open world. It's certainly not perfect, but pretty dang good. For my money, the best Farcry in the series so far is Farcry: Primal (stoneage).

Right now Avernum: Escape from the Pit. It's an excellent hexcrawl RPG, very reminiscent of old D&D

I just started the Mutant: Year Zero game on my PC. Humble Bundle has it for $12 this month if you buy the monthly subscription. You can cancel again right away if you don't want to pay every month

Just started playing Inquisitor: Martyr. Only a few levels in but like the story/game play so far.

Spent some time getting back up to speed with Fantasy Grounds as well.

Finished Season 21 of Diablo 3, actually conquered it (completed all challenges.)

So, I'm done with D3 and will wait for D4.

Bought a Nintendo Switch and Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3. Haven't played it yet but will soon, whenever my wife gets a few minutes to join me.

So we started MUA3 on the Switch. Haven't gotten very far. Need to redo some levels as the characters just don't advance that quickly and are pretty weak. Its meh so far... camera doesn't follow properly, sluggishness in some battles, characters have stupid limitations, etc. I hope it'll get better now that we got the DLC for it... at least Deadpool should be fun.

Right now I'm not playing anything and no game really inspire me (except MMORPGs in Beta). The last game I've played was a MOBA, League of Legends). I enjoyed playing mid, support and sometimes top.
