I'm personally waiting for Pillars of Eternity: White March (expansion) to start a new game in Pillars of Eternity. It is a wonderful RPG in the mold of Baldur's Gate, with great game mechanics and some excellent writing to boot.

Also I still have an ongoing Football Manager 2015 save with Rochdale AFC in the English League. I managed to get from League One to the Premier League in three seasons and now I'm competing for European qualification positions in 2025. The idea with the save has been to keep wages low, train and buy promising youngsters and sell them on when their wage demands become unreasonable. We've remained competitive in the Premier League for seven seasons, albeit we've never broken into the top four. We have great facilities, a new stadium, good coaches and lots of homegrown players. We also have the healthiest bank balance in the league. The challenge is to really kick on and start challenging for the title, while having a wage budget that's only a third of our competitors.

Yeah, I'm looking to play the Witcher 3 again as well once the expansion set arrives. Still need to play the game through with a Yennefer romance.

I guess I could of gave some feedback on Magic: Origins. Its free to play you gain gold through the campaign or online battles to unlock more gold to buy booster packs that add to your card collection. You can buy gold with real money if you wish to get a head start. You can build any type of deck you want, build combos, etc. Also 2v2 is back or 2headed giant :) Its very strategic and worth the time as it makes you think...

Oh sorry for this but I have to Hearthstone sucks compared to this game its pretty much a new made up game ripping off the simplistic form of magic. Magic is very much more complex. ;) and let the hate come I will take it and not scared :P

I played Witcher 3 as well and it was amazing. One of the best singleplayer games I ever played. Only downside for me was lack of challenge in the later stages of the game. It feels like the npc's don't keep up with the charakter leveling up very well and the game overall feels easier than Witcher 2.

I'm still trying to finish XCOM (Long War mod 15.e) in Ironman mode. Brutal difficulty.

It's so hard and frustrating and heart breaking that I feel like I'm married.

I have witcher 1. Should I play them in order or can I go to witcher 3 and enjoy it regardless of the past installments?

I would definitely play Witcher 2 before playing Witcher 3, just to understand the world and the story better. Alternatively you can read Andrej Sapkowski's novels and short stories to get to know the story. Witcher 1 is the game I would avoid playing, mostly because it was the company's first effort and it shows. I loved Witcher 1 myself, but if you wanted to skip a title of the series, that's the one you want to skip.

Of course you can go straight to Witcher 3, if you are not overly fussed with the story and just want to explore a great world.

At the moment I'm playing Starcraft II, Dota 2, Total War: Arena and Heroes of the Storm.

I want to go hard in either Dota 2 or Heroes of the Storm, but I can't decide between the 2 really :/

I managed to finish the season with Rochdale winning both the Premier League and the Europa League. I'll do a more detailed write up, mainly because it was a great season and wonderful way to culminate a long-term Football Manager save.

I didnt finish Witcher or Witcher 2 go about 3/4 in both. 3 is a masterpiece its a stunning RPG tbh.

Its all Diablo 3 for me atm playing season 4 on the new patch with wizard. Its amazing how much the game has changed since launch, its really great atm. Well worth another look if you have it, the addon made it great and the latest patch adds a new area and new cube powers.

Fun to hear that you've enjoyed it as well. It is a really great rpg and one you can't really powergame through as nearly all builds and parties can work, provided that you adjust your tactics to each encounter. :)

You can find me on majorcommand.com playing Risk under the username "jonahgrandstrom" If any of you ever played the board game risk then you will love this site. I play "real time" with 3 or 5 minute turns but you can play games with "24 hour" turns as well. It is a bit buggy but completely playable. I would advise using internet explorer because I seem to get the following bug less often using IE: If you cannot see your armies on the screen you need to refresh your webpage and not scroll while it reloads.

It is most popular for its 24 hour turn games but you can find a real time battle at most times of the day but may have to wait a few minutes for it to fill up. The most popular battle you will find is 4 player on the regular map with 5 minute turns and escalating cards which means the cards go up in value quickly. These battles last about 1 to 1.5 hours. The other popular game is 1v1 on the regular map with 5 minute turns and escalating cards. These last about 20 minutes to half an hour. Whenever I see a game with a different format than these two I always join it and sometimes I will host a battle with a different format and wait for it to fill up. But like I said most people play the 24 hour turn games so real time games can be a bit slow to fill up. You can almost always find a 4 player or 1v1 battle though.

Edit:
Personally i like 6 player, regular map, and escalite (they escalate in value but much more slowly) A battle with this format can easily take 4+ hours to finish though. I also like the 12 kingdoms custom map. It's hard to fill up anything other than the 2 game formats i mentioned earlier but i try sometimes and get a few interesting battles with other formats now and again. There is a lot they could do to improve the game (for example if a player who is not playing his very first game goes AFK it takes 3 turns before it sits him out) and (5 minute turns are necessary, even though i would prefer 3 minute turns, because the game can be a bit buggy and freeze up and require refreshing and reloading the page and it can be hard to get all your moves off in time at the end game stages) but it is the best option for real time risk on the internet right now and i enjoy it.

It's great because i love the laid back way you can play it and listen to music, browse the internet, watch videoa and go AFK for perioda of time without affecting your game.
