Re: What are you playing right now?

I overcame my inhibitions and started up State of Decay (PC) again, and whaddya know, it's actually a pretty great game.

Zombie outbreak, yada, but the whole emphasis is on building up your base (building defences, sleeping quarters, workshops etc), gathering survivors and keeping them happy, while advancing the game through story missions. The story and characters aren't that exciting - they are blank slates that, however, don't really work for you filling in the blanks or projecting your own story onto. However the game is solid, has a great open world, and providing for your survivors is very addictive (I'm reaching full capacity on my first base so will have to work towards moving to a bigger place far across the map).

Doesn't seem to be too buggy at this stage and can be played with keyboard and mouse at last.

Recommended. It's excellent.
