I've never payed attention to Picross games; I just knew that they were about "making pictures appear by filling boxes", but just read about it and how it plays out/techniques to solve it and holy sh*t! I love it! Being a Sudoku fan, I will surely give this genre a chance! If anybody can recommend Picross games as a starting point, I'll appreciate it.

As for Nintendo options, Pokemon Picross on the 3ds is free, but has some annoying microtransactions.

 

Picross 3d for DS and Picross 3d round 2 for 3ds are pretty awesome twists on the game.

Oh, man, just tried the Steam recommender and my 1 and 3 picks were ridiculous

 

Dota2, similar to Pubg, L4D2, Slay the Spire

One Finger Death Punch

CSGO, similar to Pubg, L4D2, Euro Truck Simulator 2

 

Also, I want to second South Park Stick of Truth as my favorite turn-based rpg of all time. Fractured seemed to improve a lot of stuff, but for some reason wasn't as fun and of course the writing wasn't as good.

BTW, just a reminder that Frostpunk and Night Call are both on PC Game Pass.

And Book of Demons.

 

I beat Frostpunk in normal mode even though I haven't really gotten into a city management game since Simcity 3000. Not sure why this one grabbed me, but I really liked it. I did basically beat it in a weekend and after beating it I haven't had any desire to go back to it even though it has scenarios and other difficulties.

 

With 2 the most interesting games in game pass, easy 3rd pass in a row for me.

It seems like they've said that a next gen patch or sku won't be happening this year. Maybe next year with the multiplayer update.

That article has outdated info. They recently said that Cyberpunk multiplayer is at least 2 years away.

I played 3 new games on game pass this weekend. I was really looking forward to Lonely Mountain Downhill since it had gotten some acclaim and it sounded like my kind of game. It's cool, but the presentation is a little lackluster and the perspective is kind of a cool choice, but I feel like it makes the game overly difficult to play. Not that the game is hard, but with the low quality visuals and the game focusing almost entirely on you navigating terrain, choosing that camera angle seems like a bad idea.
 

While that was a bit of a disappointment, the other 2 were nice surprises. My Friend Pedro is a side-scroller shooter/platformer with the vibe of Hotline Miami mixed with Deadpool. It's not a really hardcore game like Hotline though; it's more of a casual shooter so far and I'm really enjoying the gameplay and tone.
 

Played a game of Frostpunk and lost because I didn't know what to prioritize. Started another game and ended up winning on Monday night. Pretty surprised I won my second game, but there's other scenarios, difficulties and an endless mode so there's definitely more to do although I feel like I might've seen most of the game in that 1 playthrough. I really enjoyed it, but strategy games can get repetitive so fast.
