i think that was one of the least scary games i have played that were labeled as horror.
and i even played it at night with my headphones on.
only one time i got scared, and that was when a girl came from a small space in the wall which i did not anticipate.
Finally found something in my backlog that I like and that something is Waking mars. So far only plays about an hour of it, but I'm eager to go back and explore more those shiny red caves.
Will probably stop playing Two worlds 2 at the moment, due to loss of interest. It's pushing most of the right RPG buttons (simple crafting, plenty of loot, things to kill, skills to upgrade), but the world itself feels empty and un-welcoming with not much to explore beyond the main quest and the few side ones.
Also bough the recent bundle (didn't beat the average though) so I might play Fear 3 and LOTR: WitN, since those are the only games from that bundle I haven't played yet (and won't feel bad if I'll from them to the big pile of games I'll never play).
I'm a bit mad at XCOM: EU right now.
I just lost my Colonel sniper (First colonel on this classic ironman game) because my SHIV chose to bug out, preventing me from moving it during the las five or so turns of the mission. It was in a rescue mission from the council, a mission I needed to make a succes. The VIP was within dashing distance of the extraction point, but no with no less than four overwatching thinmen, unreachable for most of my squad, specially since two of them had to reload. My idea was to sacrifice the SHIV, making it activate all of the shots, but since it got bugged that was impossible to do. My only choice left (because the damned things had the VIP flanked) was to move my colonel onto their LOS or lose the mission, since everyone else was too far away. I did it, to my surprise, every shot failed to connect. But on the next turn they flanked and killed her.
Saints Row 4 doesn't get old for me. It really should, but it just doesn't. It's just about the perfect stress reliever for this particular, unbelievably busy moment in my life...
Spelunky: why can't I stop?
I am managing to tear myself away to get some Saints Row: The Third in. It's been heaps of fun, although I think I'm getting towards being personally done with it. I shall try to stop myself getting too distracted and focus on the missions, which have been increasingly pleasingly bonkers.
People use the gang backup? Huh. I finished all the thefts and assassinations without using any backup.
Oh, God, I snapped and downloaded Pinball FX 2 when I found out they'd made the Sorceror's Lair table free for PC, too. Oh God it's every bit as phenomenal as it is on tablets and now I have to buy every single table I own on Android a second time and probably more of them into the bargain and oh God oh God my poor wallet.
Seriously, this has been pretty much one of my favourite games of all time since I first started playing last year, even though I'm terrible at it and in no danger of getting anywhere near any of the leaderboards. Not the sort of thing that turns up on RPS much, I suppose, but it bloody well should be. I must have put ten hours into World War Hulk alone. I am the green scar! I am the world-breaker! I! Am! The! HULK! Pure, distilled arcade bliss.
Back to Dark Souls this week. I am determined to finish it before xmas. Now in the Catacombs. I cannot wait for DS2 in March!
Don't really have time to sit down for a proper match, but Geforce Experience says that, with my new card, I should set all BF4 stuff to Ultra. YAY!!!
BUt I will say what I am NOT playing. I am NOT playing the new Splinter Cell (Wrong Voice Actor but Fun Gameplay Edition). Why am I not playing that? Because FUCK YOU UBISOFT!!!!!
Downloaded and installed during Agents of SHIELD last night. No complaints there. Comparable to Steam.
Started up when I got off work today. Started downloading a patch. Taking a long time. Watched an hour and a half long podcast. STILL fucking downloading. Went off to make supper, ate. Ran patch. Clicked to start game.
It is now downloading ANOTHER FUCKING PATCH!!!!
So back to podcasts.
Splitting my gaming time between Path of Exile, still, and WRC4.
The more I play PoE, the more impressed I get. It's such a remarkable achievement for a small indie company. So much depth in an ARPG, so many possible variations, so many ways to make fun builds.
WRC4 is a neat surprise as well, much much better than WRC2, the last one I played. Unfortunately force feedback is completely broken on my G27, so while I wait for a patch or a mod (the latter is more likely), I've been playing it with my trusty X360 controller. Lots of fun, nice cars, the stages are well made, career mode is a joke. Shame it's going to get stale rather soon, since the stages aren't varied nor long enough - and a rally game dies once you start knowing every stage as well as you know a normal racing circuit. I hope one day Milestone will take this next, bold step and give us actual rallying stages instead of fantasy ones. But it's a faint hope.
