What I’ve been playing:

  • Marvel Heroes 2016 - Diablo 2 clone with Marvel characters, I’m playing Gambit, Loot feels meaningless so i don’t know what the point of it all is other than a grind with familiar characters.
  • Meltdown - Tactical top down iso metric shooter game with multiple game modes, a campaign, endless mode, randomly generated mode, deathmatch, multiplayer coop, local coop, bosses, progression. There’s both premium and F2P versions.
