Happy New Year! Hopefully all of you have had a safe and restful holiday season. It's back to work for all of us here at Stardock, but believe me: I got quite a lot of playtime in during my break!
My backlog of games is such that I didn't buy too much during the sale, but I still snagged a few things at some pretty great prices. I finally picked up Star Wars Battlefront II and, although I'm not such a great shot (at least I'm true to Stormtrooper lore when playing as an Imperial!) I've been having a lot of fun playing it in a squad with my friends.
I grabbed Divinity Original Sin II for a friend of mine so we could start a campaign together. I've never actually completed a playthrough of this game, to be honest - it feels like I've started and restarted dozens of games. I could probably recite the entire beginning area from memory, lol.
The game I've logged the most hours in recently is actually one I purchased during the Autumn Sale toward the end of November. Anyone out there playing Phasmophobia? I know I've said before that I am absolutely terrified by horror games, and this one is no exception - for the first two weeks or so I couldn't play too close to bedtime and there were at least a few nights where I slept with my lights on.
Now, nearly 350 levels and over 100 hours later, I'm desensitized to it mostly, though that doesn't prevent the occasional startled yell or the goosebumps I still get every time a ghost responds to us via the Ouija board. If you love a good game to play with friends and appreciate a good spook, consider checking it out - note, though, that it's a one-man dev team and still in early access!
What did you pick up during the sale and/or what have you been playing lately? If the answer is "nothing" or "not enough," you still have another day! The sale ends at 1pm ET tomorrow.
