I am also playing Magic the Gathering Arena, and I highly recommend you all try it.

It's free and has tutorials for learning. You get a good variety of cards and pre-made decks just for playing games. Each day they offer simple rewards for playing (and winning just gives you access to more rewards). You can make real purchases, but the rewards system gives you enough opportunity to earn in-game gold and gems and new cards/decks. You can also edit the decks and make your own once you learn how (with tutorials on this, too).

Note: It's only available with PC Windows at this time, and you need to be connected to play.

I used to play quite a bit of Hearthstone. How does it compare with that?

As someone who played MTG: Arena, it sucks since it left closed beta.
They removed a lot of the different packs you could use then.
I think it'll be better once they add more packs.

I guess, if you like MTG, you'll enjoy it.
If you haven't played MTG - It's a reasonably good card game. You can also unlock things just by playing MTG arena online - you can spend money to get things faster if you wish, but isn't needed.

If you are a fan of the Harvest Moon genre there is an early access game called My Time at Portia that I have been playing recently. They are apparently nearing the end of main story line development so I might wait until they finish that to start it. The developers seem fairly responsive to the community's input which is nice. It's $19.99 plus tax on steam and I have already played 20 hours to get half way through the first year.

I bought that game earlier in the year, but haven't played it yet!
When I fired it up, I tried running it on my second screen, so I could play it while doing something else but, it didn't like that. :p
I'll probably put it on my laptop, and play it during deskwarming over winter break

Not interested in Smash at all (am I the only one lol) but the Sega Genesis Classics collection also comes out on Friday for the Switch.

I know I can play all those games on an emulator but I'll probably pick it up.  Toejam and Earl: Panic on Funkatron.  Need I say more  8)

Currently playing Darksiders 3.
It's incredibly buggy.
The combat system sucks in this one. It's more like dark souls, but not as good. You have a dodge, that is supposed to avoid an attack whenever you use it, but you still get hit 90% of the time when you use it. Unless you fight 1 enemy at a time. Then it usually works fine.

I guess, if you like dark souls and the first 2 dark siders, it's worth playing; if you liked the first 2 darksiders, but don't like dark souls; probably just worth reading about the storyline online and skipping this title.

Yeah, there were some issues with efficiency when I started a couple weeks ago. They recently (I think around the end of November) had a patch that fixed some of the issues they had. I couldn't run two screens at all from my laptop before it but now I can just about run some 480p youtube on a second screen. I expect that by the time most schools start winter vacation they will have released at least another content/bug fix patch.

The last of us is pretty decent. I forgot to check out the DLC for it though!

All of those are great games, though if you had to skip one, I wouldn't pick up Far Cry 4.

Still playing and enjoying Fallout 76, despite the internet's loud and persistent assurances that I'm not supposed to like it because it's objectively bad.

To me, the biggest issue with it is a) the fact that the game still has the same glitches and problems from Fallout 4 and b) Bethesda's response to the collector's edition controversy.

I don't doubt it can be a fun game (it is Fallout, after all), but there is some blatant laziness going on with Bethesda

Yeah, for FO4 they were able to just tell themselves "meh, modders will fix it," but they're playing the mod-free online game crowd now. For the first time, they're actually going to have to fix their own sh!t. It'll be interesting to see if they're up to the task.  :laugh:

And for what it's worth, they're making canvas bags for the people who complained. Too little too late for some, I'm sure, but they're listening and trying to make things right.

Ah really. Do they do Christmas sales like steam? Those games are on sale, though, so I'll probably still pick them up

yeah there should be a christmas sale or a new years sale.  if you can hold out for a couple of more weeks you might be able to still snag some deals.
