Looks like the graphics alone in Ghost of Tsushima are going to be pretty amazing:

Or 2, or 4....depending. Usually it was 3/4, but sometimes it was 2/3, depending on the machine. And which channel was better depended on which channel had less interference in your area.

I have been playing a bit of Minecraft Dungeons. Its pretty much Diablo as Minecraft gameplay wise. The stages feel a little less randomly generated than Diablo though and the gear system isn't as robust, at least from what I have seen.

Its alright, but a little repetitive. The bosses are all stupidly cheap though. You pick a stage and difficulty even below your current power level, then breeze through the regular enemies, then suddenly you hit a boss that spams 1000 projectiles from all directions that you can't dodge with dozens of adds bouncing all over.

So far it feels like there is zero point to the emeralds you collect. You can spend them at camp for randomized loot but its basically never anywhere near as useful asloot you find in the levels. Items have an unlock system for special abilities that feels exploitable in interesting ways. Like, I have an axe now, that when fully unlocked will reduce enemy damage by 80% (2x 40% reduction stacked).

The game also feels really short. Each stage takes around 30 minutes, I think there are maybe 8 stages, then you get to grind up to be as strong as possible.

Found a newbie on Steam. Satisfactory is kind of like Factorio without the bird's eye view. That said, the buildings and conveyors are a bit... HUGE and unruly. Still fun. (^_^)

Or, so I thought they were HUGE and unruly... Until I built the Space Elevator... (o_O)

Best game I've played in years, it's really something!

I'm up to tier 5, I'm not rushing, but that's roughly a tier per day I've had the game.

The learning curve is really nice, and subtle! They've packed a lot of features in which just kind of become obvious just as you need them.

Time to go find some oil so I can start working on plastics! :)

I downloaded Satisfactory yesterday. Today I'm gonna start it up and see what's what!

I watched a streamer playing it a while ago, before it was available on Steam and it looked seriously fun.
