Also, Limbo had an ending?
I am enjoying APB Reloaded, playing the pvp areas. A lot of fun, but I am kicked out of the game every few minutes by PunkBuster.
Played a bit of the ShootMania: Storm beta. I really approve of the level editor! The movement is a bit wonky though (it slides a lot), but overall it seems like it could be pretty good fun.
Mirror's Edge. Awesome so far, great news that we may get a sequel. Probably one of the prettiest games I've ever played as well.
Just beat that infamous Wrong Side Of The Tracks level and it was surprisingly easy. Was I that bad at games back then? Today I even crashed a bike once and still completed it on the first arttempt. Back then I felt like only way to beat this level is to do everything perfectly, now I just cleared it no problem.
Twin Sector- 99p in the Steam sale and I've had my eye on it for years. I can sometimes be a patient man.
Very very rough around the edges, but there is a good game there. In some ways I wish they'd given up the pretense of plot as the game looks cheapest during the pre-rendered cutscenes. If they went with a qube type aesthetic/plot it'd have probably been less work, looked better and been more professional. In any case I really like the Glove mechanics and at their best moments it can be extremely slick. The puzzles are moderately good with a decent rewarding feeling on figuring something out. Its just a shame about everything else.
Ultimately its an impressive creation for an indie title and certainly something to be proud of, but it feels like it tried to reach a little too high especially being an FPS puzzler in the wake of Portal's release.
Red Dead Redemption. Terrible controls and a UI that always requires more button presses than it should to do anything. Also I doubt that any real human cowboy ever personally killed as many folk as I have so far -- just reached Mexico.
I'm just very casually and slowly exploring the world of Deus Ex: Human Revolution. It is such a versatile game. It can be played as a very tense and atmospheric shooter, or, while watching something else on another screen, I can patiently kill/knock-out (I'll regularly change my mind about that) everyone in a certain area, and then progress further towards that objective I've completely forgotten about while coolly stealthing around the place.
Also, I've started to dabble around Minecraft again, for the first time in at least a year. My god, how that's changed!
Eva in Peril is possibly one of the best side quests ever. And Strange Man. You'll know exactly what I mean when you play them. RDR is such a brilliant games, it's a shame it's not on PC too.
Currently splitting my gaming time in half.
On one side, Saint's Row 3. So, so much fun. It's basically GTA3 - my favourite GTA - turned up to eleven in every way. Except in music, but the mixtape idea is so good all sandbox games with radio stations should adopt it from now on. It's funny, it's zany, the mechanics are good, there's certainly plenty to do, the customisation's great and pretty much an all-around excellent sandbox adventure.
On the other side, Tribes: Ascend. I'm not a huge multiplayer person but every now and then I do get the desire for it, and the scifi style of Tribes mixed with it being F2P made it a pretty comfortable thing to try. I'm really enjoying it, and I haven't even dared to wander outside the team deathmatch mode yet. Can imagine it only gets better once I get involved with the other modes. Unlocking speed seems rather painfully slow, even with the Steam Starter Pack boost (which I got from the sales), but on the other hand I've been pretty happy with the standard load-out for the class I currently play so *shrug*.
Fuck me,was playing game for over an hour in Medieval 2 and didn't saved,suddenly i was back to the desktop,with no error screens or anything similar.
Inspired by a lack of real football going on, I'm getting seriously into Football Manager 2012 for the first time. It's a unique experience to play in Germany with a database mod that opens up the lower leagues, because unlike Spain, your reserve team is part of the normal league structure and you can directly control them. (Without mods, you can still do this with Bremen or Stuttgart.) Get your reserves promoted to the second division and they'll be an excellent feeder team for your younger players who need match experience but aren't ready for the first team. If you want the optimal youth development process, that's probably how to do it.
Right now I'm playing Steam, where I explore until I find something that either interests me or that I forgot I wanted, then I check the price and decide whether I want it or not.
In a more general sense: BF3 (though less than before), MGS: Peace Walker, Cargo: The Search For Gravity (what an excellent game that turned out to be!) and I intend to start playing Payday: The Heist from now on after having spent a handful of minutes on it for the first time today.
