I'm going to work on finishing the career mode in DiRT 4 before Gran Turismo Sport comes out.

I'll also be playing Gary Grigsby's War in the West.

Uh, Blackjack? Heading to Vegas for a conference. I'm hoping the positive spirit and love there overshadow the dark veil over the city following last weekend's events in defiance of such evil.

I have been moving my four bedroom house and prepping it for sale for the past two weeks. Finally have a day to myself to just kick back and game.

I'll be playing divinity original sin 2 and some more path of exile.

I tried getting into destiny 2, but it felt like there wasn't a ton of content.

Started playing World of Warships again and having more fun with it now than when it first dropped 2 years ago. They have done a respectable job adding content. I'm getting a kick out of the German Battleship line.

Path of Exile. Level 28 now on my first character. I enjoy it. The passive skills tree is seizure-inducing. It looks and feels like one would expect Diablo 3 to if one had only played D1/D2 and not the actual D3; that's a compliment.

On the negative side, the forward edge of the community in 'global chat' (akin to 'general chat' in D3) is so mentally deficient, with constant references to sexual fetishes and practices, names chosen for their stupidly immature anatomical references, and the like, that it has succeeded in achieving the impossible of making me miss general chat in D3 for its comparable maturity.

Seriously. It's WTFBBQ terrible. Absolutely ridiculous.

On another note, as a loot-drop-oriented-game PoE does a terrible job of doling out 'legendary' (orange) items. I played for just shy of 20 hours before I even got ONE to drop, and it was a piece of crap for my particular build as well. I'm not impressed with that aspect of the game. Leveling also seems quite slow, and like D3 it seems like an 'end game' (i.e. high level) game that holds most of its fun for high level folks who've finished the main acts.

Good game, with flaws. Free makes it worth a shot!

I gave up on Forza 7 and put it on Ebay.

Other than that i finally sat down and got the input issues on my Retro Pi fixed. Everything works correctly now.

Ill prolly be playing my Pi until Odyssey. GT Sport is coming but my PS4 is packed for the move next month, i may just wait until then. So many games i cant even.

Ive been playing path of exile as well. I'm on my second build, i'm surprised you are only L28 after 20 hrs. There are like 20-30 viable starter builds, you really should be building one of those or things are going to go real slow. I think a Spectral Throw or Ancestral War-chief build would be a really good choice.

I started this build up to L25 (in 1-2 hrs) and really enjoyed it but I switched to Sprectures: https://www.pathofexile.com/forum/view-thread/1839087


What build are you playing? I might have some Low Level items you can use.
