Thoughts on Deadllight – really beautifully crafted backdrops. The platform you were standing on has a tendency to fall dramatically every time you make a big leap. Felt the ending twist was totally unnecessary and was there just because the game had to have a twist, it’s like, the law or something. And it finally happened, I am getting sick of zombies.
Oh wow, I had no idea that Just Cause 2 had AI in place for aerial evasive maneuvers. If you're in a fighter jet and you shoot another plane, it starts to dodge and weave to avoid it. There's literally no reason why you should ever shoot at another plane; they don't have offensive AI, they don't count towards any achievement counters (like fuel tanks destroyed etc.) and they don't give you any special rewards. Plus, all planes are friendly to you. And they still added rudimentary dogfighting mechanics just to make it fun to shoot down other planes. That's fantastic.
I tried The Train http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BE0qr_3sxck
Not my best idea :D
Don't Starve has blown away my mind pretty thoroughly. Dunno what to make of Children of the Nile, I call it "the waiting game". If anyone would like to explain me why I should keep playing it, I'm all ears.
Super Hexagon is taps into my autism and takes control of my mind. I've only gotten up to square so far.
But its kinda funny,while i hated that SA is so long,it was fun doing all those diverse missions (For example quickly burning down ganja farm before police came :D),when in GTA 4 they really made shooting and driving system better,you were doing the same missions whole game,go here then there and kill few people,repeat 40 times.
yes, ok, the very small sub-window resolution thing I managed to fix. But my argument was that all the other things weigh in, and I'm just not willing to cope with all that. I do admire the endurance for fiddling-until-stuff-works of some people here, but I don't have it.
Muddling through Alan Wake. I saw somebody else mention the low quality level of writing in a game about a writer, and that is pretty jarring. I've only made it two chapters in, and while I want to like it, I'm actually just forcing myself through it in short bursts. Really hoping it picks up.
Started Bioshock Infinity. I've made some decent progress, I think. The visuals everyone gushed over at release are indeed chock full of graphics. Gameplay is, so far, meh. Lots of being forced into whatever direction the plot needs me to go. The world is interesting, but that's what Bioshock does.
I thought Alan Wake was taking the piss for a while - if they'd put a BIT more effort in, they might have actually made something out of it
Oh wait - no - for 2 reasons
1 - it's clearly riffing on Stephen King, from the lighthouse at the start through car crashes and a schlocky plot
2 - we have a writer who's gone to a remote cabin with his wife who is AFRAID OF THE DARK - isn't that like taking someone who's got a spider phobia to the Insect House in the Zoo - e.g. bloody stupid??
Don't get me wrong, SK has created some memorable concepts but his writing isn't top notch and what worries me most is that his endings tend to be really shit - so I guess they'll copy that too.
I actually read 'Under the Dome' last year and honestly wish I'd not bothered, my dog has had 3 better concepts for an ending today alone...
I do like the scenery tho - some of the settings are really lovely, esp. if you can get the crappy talking-head NPCs out of the way
Papers, Please today and oh, it's still feels too goddamn short but so good. I did a few accidents like subconsciously denying a couple when I wanted to approve or letting a few people with discrepancies in. Sometimes this game just caught me by surprise like a suicide bomber I unwittingly let in who just walked up to the guards and blew himself to gibs . My family died even I had penalties down to the minimum or none at all.
Also, Gunpoint's demo was pure brill
Hotline Miami - This is my second time playing it. I love this game so much. I can't wait for HM2. Furthermore, the soundtrack is often played when I sit at my computer. All in all, this is one of my favorite games of all time.
Euro Truck Simulator 2 - I'm so lost. (I'm an American, and I don't drive anything bigger than my Ford Ranger). KB&M isn't working too well for me, so I'll try out my gamepad. I am not buying a wheel, as I can find something better to do with the money.
McPixel - It's dumb and fun.
Dust: An Elysian Tail - 35%. I'm having a difficult time going back to play.
