What video games are you playing now?

Huh? I uh......don't really know what that all means, honestly. Computer lingo isn't my strong suit. Is that a yes or a no?
If you type "system information" in your Laptop's home screen (should be the bottom right area of the screen.), you should find your specs.

I sadly also lack the knowledge about computer stuff, though one thing you could try if buying the game and refunding it if it doesn't work. (You can refund a game on steam if you've had it less than 14 days and played it for less than 2 hours.)

Its so funny how the previous Magikarp gives advice to the new one with a bunch of "... ... ..." lol

I'm playing SoulSilver for a bit before I cook dinner, but I can't stop checking on my Magikarp. Ugh.
 
Would I be able to play Palworld on an HP laptop, or not? It's the only computer I currently have that works, and I've become quite interested in giving Palworld a try.
I was able to successfully play Monster Hunter World on "an HP laptop" (a 2.2Ghz 4-core) ... that is, assuming you (the player) can abide by an average <5 frames per second (and, because it's apparently below the game engine's minimum framerate, massive actual slowdown).

On the other hand, if Palworld can run on a Steam Deck then that is no doubt a better option. (MHW runs on a Steam Deck like Rise runs on NSW.)
 
Super Mario 3D World: Haha, wow this game just keeps going, huh? After the World Star you get for clearing the game that you unlock Rosalina in, there's a World Mushroom, and it looks like a big one, so that's something I'm doing now.

Resident Evil 4make: Rescued Ashley from the church, escape was not as clean as I'd hoped. Buncha Ganados attacked us, the extraction chopper couldn't get it, turns out we have spooky parasites in us, it's a whole thing. So now we're trying to get to a safe space until Luis contacts us about getting those out. It's going about as well as can be expected, I suppose, what with an entire village out to kill me/re-kidnap Ashley. Ada showed up, too. Kinda weird how they recast her between games, though. Bit jarring honestly, her vibe's kinda totally different.

Crash 4: Done through the Dino Dimension, scored the Living Fossil and Floater skins for Coco.
 
Picked up Breath of Fire 3 for the first time in a while. Started a new playthrough. I'm only at the very early game, where Ryu, Rei, and Teepo decide to try to steal food from Bunyan. That will totally end well for the trio. No doubt. Ryu is Level 3, Teepo is Level 3, and Rei is Level 5, and I've since gained the Burn and Unmotivate Skills, with Burn now part of Ryu's arsenal so he has a decent magical attack. And Unmotivate... is right where it belongs: on the skill list, never to be used for the rest of the playthrough.
 
Still playing Breath of Fire 3. Ryu, Rei, and Teepo have since defeated the Nue Chimera and gained favoritism from McNeil Village. Ryu is now apprenticed to Mygas the mage in order to boost his Intelligence and, most importantly, his AP. Now it's time to find out what Loki wants. But first, some exploring and to do some fishing so I can make up the Zenny I used to buy a ton of stuff and gain Mygas' apprenticeship. Plus fishing will allow me to gain access to a certain weapon that'll come in handy against the next "dungeon". I've also acquired the Skills: Influence, Blind, and Frost, the former will be useful against a certain duo, the middle one is good for getting extra EXP from Eye Goos (blinding them increases their EXP yields), and the latter will be helpful later on. Ryu, Rei, and Teepo are all Level 8.
 
Got a bit further in Breath of Fire 3. After a ton of side stuff it was time to take on Loki's "request" to break into McNeil's manor and steal back the tax money. And that resulted in Ryu and Teepo fighting off various McNeil ghosts (and a giant chicken), before the trio fought Amalgam and raided McNeil of his money. This can't possibly backfire, right? Well, it did, as the trio ran afoul with Balio and Sunder, two goons working for McNeil, and two goons that'll make Ryu's life hell for a while. One curb-stomp battle later and Ryu is all alone, with the possibility of Rei and Teepo being dead. Ryu, however, doesn't believe it, and decides to head to Wyndia, since Teepo always talked about leaving for the big city one day. Picked up the following Skills: Charge, Jump, and Meditate, the latter of which will be going to a certain magical princess very soon, though I failed to get Snap from the Pooch mini-boss during the McNeil manor raid. Guess I'll have to find another enemy to get it from. Ryu is Level 11.
 
Forgive the double post (although it's been nearly a day since last time) but I got a lot more done in Breath of Fire 3. After cleaning out Mygas of skills through grinding on tougher monsters Ryu ended up having another run-in with Balio and Sunder, the duo learn of Ryu's "little secret" of being a dragon. One failed attempt to use him as a "golden egg" to the King of Wyndia and the two horsemen and Ryu are locked up. Only for Nina to try to release Ryu... and got tricked into releasing Balio and Sunder instead. One rescue later Nina joins the ranks. After playing Hide-and-Seek with some kids to learn about a possible Teepo sighting the duo head off to search. Nina gets apprenticed under Durandal to pick up his useless tricks (sans one, which will be useful for two situations) before moving on. Only to get caught by Balio and Sunder again. One daring escape later (and purchasing some new weapon upgrades) the duo meet Mr. Mason... who rats them out to Sunder. One chase and yet another daring escape Nina learns about Ryu's dragon powers, but isn't afraid of him. Picked up the Reverse Gene in a small grotto before making our way to Momo's Tower, one of the more difficult early dungeons. Ryu is Level 18 and Nina is Level 12.
 
Forgive the now triple post but I got a ton more done in Breath of Fire 3. First, managed to explore Momo's Tower (and spent too much time on the fountain puzzle to gain all three prizes), gaining her as a new party member. Then, after a not-so flying escape on a rocket I apprenticed Momo and Ryu to D'lonzo at the Coffee Shop and learned about the Plant that Palet and Momo's late father built. So it was off to the Plant. We learned of Palet's real reason for our help: getting rid of a mutant plant. So it was off to the Dump. After fighting the Mutant we had to dispose of it in the magma, to the gang's depression, especially Momo's. But from the Mutant's remains Peco was born. Now we have our little mutant onion. Afterward made our way to Yggdrasil, gave him one of our hard-earned Wisdom Fruits so Nina could become his apprentice. After cleaning out D'lonzo of her skills and shuffling a few around (such as giving Ryu Steal, Momo Double Blow, and Peco Monopolize and Charge), we were betrayed by Palet and handed over to Balio and Sunder. Nina hatches up a plan for the gang to enter the Contest of Champions and if we win we gain our freedom. Balio sees a prospect of making money so he allows it... but holds Peco hostage to ensure we can't pull a runner. Beat the first two challenges in the contest before Ryu lost to Garr. But Garr helps the gang out. Now we're free, but Balio and Sunder aren't done yet. Ryu is Level 21, Nina is Level 16, Momo is Level 15, and Peco is Level 1.
 
I am currently playing Genshin Impact, Honkai Star Rail and Xenoblade Chronicles definitive edition. I do play Genshin Impact and Honkai Star Rail a bit more compared to Xenoblade but I am really enjoying those three games. I don't really like having a lot of games on my plate to play since I have other obligations to take care of before playing games.
 
This weekend I played Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and Gotham Knights. Both have been on my backlog for a decent amount of time so it’s nice to finally get them started.
I’ve got to Chapter 3 in Xeno 2 and that’s been pretty fun, I’ve been really enjoying the combat and the premise is pretty cool. And in Gotham Knights, I’m on Case 2. It’s fine, but nowhere near Batman Arkham Knight and the traversal is a bit bland, but so far the story and combat have been pretty good.
 
Super Mario 3D World: Wrapped up all the way through to the end of World Flower. At this point the only frontier left to be conquered is World Crown, but I really have to decide if I actually feel like going through all of the prerequisites. Stars is probably pretty doable, I'm only missing three that just didn't feel seriously worth trying with the Drifty As Fuck Joycon, probably decently doable if I just busted out the pro controller. But I've skipped a lot of stamps, and even if I did generally try for a gold flag I never made a big deal about missing them, just because I never thought that either of those would be useful. So I'm really not sure if I wanna just go digging back through that many stages to pick those up.

Resident Evil 4make: Made it into Salazar's castle, Ashley had a moment and ran off for a bit, I found her again though, 'sall good. Luis fucked it up though, now he's in trouble so we gotta go rescue him in a ballroom.

Crash 4: Played through everything from Bermugula to Cortex Castle (the stage). Collecting more and more skins as I go through, collecting Future Past for Coco, as well as Willy the Wombat and Crate Crusher 9000 for Crash. I also went back and collected all four coloured gems, since I'm pretty sure I'll need those to get Crate Crusher for Coco. And I did Cortex Castle, which I actually did much better in than last time I did it! Though I still got nowhere close to the 3-death limit for that one gem, it still generally kicked my ass significantly less than the first time through, which is good!
 
Got a lot further in Breath of Fire 3. I battled and defeated Stallion, finally putting an end to Balio and Sunder, with Garr joining the ranks. Went back to Wyndia to gain a passport and return Nina... only for her to join up again because of a misadventure with Honey, Momo's robot. I then apprenticed Garr to Bunyan, Peco to Fahl, and Ryu and Momo to Giotto (the latter of which was past the checkpoint), only to switch Momo back to D'lonzo after a few levels (I mostly wanted to boost her HP and AP to a more desirable level, as she's a glass cannon, and D'lonzo penalizes HP and AP growth, plus that +5 to accuracy is still necessary for Momo to actually hit a target even with the Artemis' Cap, and the Agility boost is helpful). Managed to clean out Fahl of skills in the process before continuing on with the story. Trained up Beyd thanks to liberal use of Backhand on Garr and Ryu's healing magic so all it took was three training sessions for Beyd to beat the snot out of Zig. Went to the Lighthouse, reactivated it, beat Gazer, and am now heading to the Faerie Realm. Ryu is Level 26, Nina is Level 21, Momo is Level 21, Peco is Level 7, and Garr is Level 21.
 
Just finished Inscryption, a fantastic psychological horror/thriller game with deckbuilding gameplay. Definitely give it a shot if you're a fan of either horror, OR if you're a fan of deckbuilding games like Dominion, Hearthstone, or TCGs like Pokemon or Magic the Gathering.

Still working my way through Valkyria Chronicles, which is a fun little tactical classic from the PS3 era, with a fantastic art style and unique gameplay, in the sense that you move around on a 3D plane & manually aim to determine hit%. The story is pretty cheezy for now, but good enough to keep me looped in.

Aside from that, still loosely working my way through Hades' postgame as well as trying the new "Adventure Mode" in Vampire Survivors. And, slowly but surely making my way through my Final Fantasy VII Remake replay in preparation for Rebirth at the end of the month. I'm in Ch14 now.

On the stream side of things, I'm at the end of my Pokemon Shining Pearl nuzlocke run, and just started a playthrough of Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance ironman! For the latter, I'm only in like Chapter 6 and I've lost two characters already :(
 
Sonic Battle: Beat the game! (The Eggman boss at the end was annoying to deal with tough, with his constant missile spam and strange floating making it hard to finish your combos against him.)
Other than the lack of a tutorial teaching the more finer mechanic, I'd say the game is pretty good! If you have a GBA, I'd recommend picking this up if you like Smash bros! (If you can find it, that is.)

FFPS: Completed the Mediocrity and Insanity endings, so now I just need to do the Completion and Blacklisted endings.
I am quite enjoying the game, the tycooning is charming and the night segments are entertaining. (Though I am yet to have to deal with all four animatronics at once, so here's hoping that doesn't prove to be too difficult.)
With the more relaxing, laid back nature and the day phases making the gameplay loop feel less repetitive, I'd say it's possibly the most replayable FNAF game.

I've also started playing Dead by Daylight on PC, after only playing the mobile version. Didn't like how you have to hold shift to sprint instead of having toggle option, but I just remapped an extra button on my mouse and now it's not so uncomfortable.
