I have mostly played Star Trek Online recently. There was just a huge new expansion released (for free) that added Romulans as a third playable faction. Who doesn't love that?
I love the new login screens, makes it a joy to show off your crew:
After quite a while I also played something else just yesterday. Prime World: Defenders
, an indie game that just hit Steam. Actually it has been available for a while, but only as an "early access" game and now it's an official release. I must say it feels very polished and bug free so far. But the game itself, eh...
The game is basically a combination of Tower Defense and Trading Card Game and RPG.
The core gameplay is pure classic tower defense, plain and simple. But which towers you can bring into a map is determined by your deck, which, (you guessed it!), is determined by tower cards that you can obtain as random drops in the game. The RPG aspect is that you can also fuse and upgrade your cards to be more powerful. The problem is that sooner or later the quality of your cards is more important than building a clever defense and you start grinding ramdomly generated missions over and over for useful card drops and money to buy booster packs with a shitty chance of useful card drops.
I mean really? At least (and that is its saving grace), it is not a free to play game and the cards do not cost money and can't be traded. It is a self-contained singleplayer game. If buying and selling cards for real money had entered the equation, I would have called this Satan incarnate. As it is, it only makes me die a little inside
