Played some more Toki Tori today, although I'm at the stage where I'm struggling with every single puzzle. The fact that there are YouTube videos with solutions for all (or most) of the levels isn't really helping, particularly when I'm watching something else I don't want to stop to go hunting for said solution. I may have to go back over the puzzles I've done so far, and maybe do the bonus and hard puzzles for the first couple of worlds. Puzzles aren't really my thing, so I'd sort of be okay with just getting through them any old way, but it'd be nice if I could at least say that I'd mostly worked them all out myself.



Another on the list of games that I bought because someone said it was good and then forgot about is Magic the Gathering - Duels of the Planeswalkers. Only had time to go through the how to play bit and lose a campaign, but I think it might be something I can enjoy. As long as I can learn enough to not lose all the time. Which.... could be a thing. We'll see.

On thing that has me hesitant is the whole unlocking decks thing, particularly with cash. I'm hoping that it'll work out so I'll either get what I need as the game goes along or learn enough to be sure of what I want to buy, but that sort of thing is definitely not my skill. I like games that go "Here are some good options, learn how to use them and you'll be fine." For the time being I'm sticking with what I've got, and if that's not good enough I'll either quit or get better at the game.



Also tried a f2p mmo called Dragon Nest on impulse and it's not too bad. Well, terrible compared to WoW but that's not a fair comparison so we won't do that. Infinitely better than Everquest at least, and certainly decent enough on its own merits. I had some setup issues because of my dual monitors and Dvorak keyboard setting, and the monitor thing at least doesn't look to be something that I can fix how I want it regardless of how much I fiddle. Probably would have spent more time with this one, but our power's been playing up.

The dialogue to get quests is a bit tedious, and I'm mostly just spamming my way through it all and then checking the quest log after to figure out what's going on. Plus the quests involving Delilah make me.... a little uncomfortable. She's a dodgy vendor, but my character basically threatening her was a bit much. It all seems to be fully scripted though, so I don't think there's much I can do, and I'm guessing it won't affect character relations in any way that wasn't meant to happen. Still, wish it wasn't a thing.



And finally, in the "I've heard nothing good about this but it was on sale and I just had to try it" category: Game of Thrones RPG. So far it's.... not good, but I'll probably play more of it than others might. The dialogue is way too much - serious infodumping issues, probably because of the books/tv series connection - and I have no idea if the dialogue options have any influence on things, but I tend to ignore that anyway unless it's really good. So unless it turns out that what I say actually matters, I'll probably just skim the talk and make whatever comment seems reasonable at the time.

As for the combat it's.... clunky but not impossible, and goes rather well with the not paying much attention thing. Although I've died once so far because I forgot health was a thing. This is one of those games where the epic casualness of my playstyle will help, as long as the game lets it, because I think I can ignore a lot of the awful elements of it.
