Started playing some Wargroove. Its like fire emblem (i guess?) or Advanced Wars - turned based combat with army recruitment and a hero character.

And Factorio, which continues to be endless hours of entertainment.

Starting Slay the Spire...
That keeps showing up all over the place, seems to be pretty popular.

Dark Souls III and its DLC are on sale on steam, so I ended up caving in and buying the DLC. Going to try and not to instantly spend 48 hours in there, since I've other shit to do. If anybody's looking for an immersive RPG with incredible atmosphere that has no qualms about kicking your ass, I can only recommend this game.

What does the DLC add? New bosses I'd hope.

I got bored rolling around after beating the second throne boss, but I can see the appeal. Finally beating a boss after dying a few dozen times was extremely satisfying. The biggest downside for me though is that it takes large blocks of dedicated time, which is becoming more and more elusive, especially because I'm terrible at these kinds of games lol.

New bosses, new areas, new items, new spells. A lot of the +3 rings can be found in the Ringed City for example. It is time consuming, but hey, isn't it more fun to get into one game heavily rather than 10 cursorily?

That actually sounds like quite a bit of content.

And yeah, you make a good point. Maybe that's been my problem with RPGs lately, jumping around rather than sinking into to one. Definitely something to consider.

Getting my asshole destroyed by Sekiro at the moment. The first boss alone took me fucking hours, easily on par with e.g. Sister Friede in difficulty, and the minibosses are no joke either. I didn't think I'd be into the Japanese thing, but they did a really good job with it. Smiler should be very into this.

By the first boss you mean Lady Butterfly?

And yeah, I'm totally into this game, it's absolutely amazing, but the Japanese thing is really not to my liking (I hate both Sengoku and Edo periods, at least). Also the plot is just generic so far, by far the weakest part of the game. Still, Sekiro is an improvement on Dark Souls combat system (and cuts a lot of unnecessary stuff in other places), and a great one at that. 100% worth picking up if you're at all into combat games. A bit of warning, though: Sekiro is likely noticeably harder than any of the previous Soulsborne games.
