What Are You Playing On Steam This Week?

Illustration for article titled What Are You Playing On Steam This Week?

Steam releases approximately one hundred million billion (give or take a zillion) games every week. So let’s help each other out: tell me what you’re playing on Steam this week and whether or not it’s any good. Let’s recommend games to each other.


Me, I’ve been splitting my time between Power Ranger strategy goof-’em-up Chroma Squad (which you can read more about here) and Killing Floor 2. Both are quite good, but I’m kinda getting bored of KF2. It’s an Early Access game, and even though it’s refreshingly polished by Early Access standards, it’s not overflowing with that all important video game nougaty center—that which we hunger for, mouths open and tongues aloft, quivering with a primordial hunger, our unmarred god: Content—so I’m starting to tire of it.

I really want to see what sort of maps we get once the mod community has some time to work its magic, but I think it’s about time for a break. My trusty shotgun hammer has cracked thousands of Zed skulls, and the pinata candy of their skulls (hint: blood, it is blood) is all starting to run together—like, well, a lot of blood. That’s not to dissuade people from playing! There’s a lot of interesting team strategy to be found, even within the confines of a few levels and one boss enemy. But I think I’m gonna cut myself off so I can save some excitement for the more complete version of the game.

As for what I’m planning to replace it with, that’s still up in the air. I might do a replay of The Witcher 2 before The Witcher 3 comes out, because I can’t remember if Geralt slept with everyone or only most of everyone. Alternatively, I’ve been meaning to play Vampire: The Masquerade—Bloodlines since approximately one immortal vampire lifetime ago, and well, it’s now on my hard drive. I should probably do something about that. I’ve still kinda got a craving for something multiplayer, though. I’m not entirely sure what I’ll play to sate that.

How about you? What Steam games have you been playing lately? Any surprising or interesting discoveries? Anything completely awful that we should all steer clear of? Speak below, and you will be heard (unless a Kinja glitch doesn’t let me un-gray your comments because Kinja can be real dumb sometimes).

I just set Cities: Skylines down. Except for dipping my toes into short stints of Pillars of Eternity
