So I finished Dragon Age 2.

My general reaction was, "wait, that's it?"

I enjoyed it well enough, but it doesn't feel complete. Or rather, it feels like an anthology. Or a short story collection. It's like "Three Stories of Hawke" as opposed to a unified game. And the stakes felt shockingly low. I mean, big for Kirkwall, sure, but somewhat minor on the grand scale. Especially the endgame.

It almost feels like a 40 hour prelude to some other game.
I genuinely liked that low-key vibe in Dragon Age 2.

Picked up Subnautica from Epic for free, finally got around to playing it.

Holy shit its a great game. Incredibly atmospheric, interesting and engaging.

Had a couple of "oh shit its 1 in the morning" nights over the last week

Vaporium. It's decent so far; aside from the writing and voice work. :roll:
I do expect to play through to the end.

Lately, Dungeons of Dredmor. Like most roguelikes, there's a bit of a learning curve.

The character sheet put me off for awhile, but I found myself with small windows of time to kill that were none-the-less frequently interrupted. A turn-based roguelike fit the bill nicely.

Well after you mentioned it, I fired it back up and was doing the same. Had some processes I was working on. Mindless button clicking mostly, but some of the parts would take a few minutes to load, and a couple of sections were in the 10 to 15 minute delay realm... So fitted nicely with it.

Mouse movement is annoying, but so much easier to avoid traps, and their lovely snippets of XP.

I also don't remember there being a female character option last time I played.

Yeah, I turned off mouse move and just use WASD.
