    It's pretty much generalized Bioware hate bandwagoning at this point. To hear it described, Bioware didn't make a game; they just marched to each fan's house and kicked 'em in the nuts. They can do no right, etc etc...

    I am currently away from my PC gaming machine, so for two monthes I have to stick to my android tablet. Currently playing through World of Goo which I enjoy a lot. The graphical style is very nice, funny music and most important the UI is fantastic for touchscreen playing.
    Also bought the 20th anniversary edition of Another World. Only spent some minutes at the beginning, but damn this is hard. The input over the touchscreen further adds to the high difficulty. Think I will play this using a gamepad sometime.
    Another thing I tried was Avadon:The Black Fortress. Only played the tutorial, but it seemed fun and the UI seemed good too. Not sure when I have the time for this, as I heard it is quiet lenghty.

    I don't think that's fair; it's reasonable to dislike DA2 strongly since it changes so much from the original. ME3, on the other hand, just seems to be an improved ME2, with some elements from ME1 that were streamlined out in 2 put back in in a more coherent way. All the changes made throughout the Mass Effect series are logical and consistent, and they seem to really understand what they're doing with it, so that when for instance they make a mistake like the streamlined inventory in ME2 to fix the bloated inventory in ME1, they realize exactly how to fix it for ME3.

    Making EDI a sexbot is my only complaint so far. Oh, and having Space do everything. I don't think it needs too many more keys, maybe 2 rather than 1.

    Irrelevant on further examination of the rest of the thread.

It is also turning into a more tense game, as the marines are royally fucked once the lights go out because the aliens have chewed out the power. You do get the occasional Aliens vibe. It is not feature complete yet though, so some higher tech items have not been implemented yet. There is also balancing issues, but it is still early beta. Still, I do recommend it to anyone with a passing interest in FPS/RTS. I believe you can pre order to get into beta.
    I read the patch notes every time they have a new release and they seem to be still adding lots of new stuff.

    I'm waiting for them to start finalizing the game for a release to start playing it, because I think I'd be annoyed with the constantly changing gameplay.

    I got myseif into the Super Monday Night Combat beta so I've been playing that.... or trying to, while my shite internet prevents me from actually playing, earning me leaves due to my connection constantly dropping. That, and random server crashes thanks to the influx of people like me who just got keys.

    Working my way through Batman: Arkham City but keep getting sidetracked playing one more game on Gotham City Imposters (the game is just so much fun). At least I have a consistent theme going.

    I'm revisiting Prince of Persia: Warrior Within.
    From an art direction point of view is perhaps the weakest, but it's somewhat interesting in it's small openness. Also the combat system is good (it was great when it came out) and it doesn't have carriage races.

    Depends. Took me 62-63h trying to do all the sidequests. Eventually I sidestepped the 3 strongest enemies, otherwise it would have taken longer. If you try to cut it short, it's probably around 40h.

    Really? I love that kind of stuff, one power or tool/unit gets added to a strategic game and it flips the whole world upside down forcing you to discard methods which were previously perfect. Constantly reinventing itself.

    To be fair, it is only the higher tier items that have not been added. From what I understand this means stuff like Heavy Armor and Miniguns. The Jetpack and Onos are in the game right now.

    In my quest to reduce the guilt pile I finally got round to Just Cause 2 and find myself enjoying it a lot, in a "'splosions! woo, flying!" sort of way. Does anyone know if I'll miss out on anything but dumb story if I decide to not do the agency missions and just generally explore and cause havoc when the fancy takes me?

    Not sure, but I don't think so.

    The agency missions are so over the top they're actually quite fun.

    Some story missions end in fun setpieces, like parachuting away from exploding radar dishes and the like.

    Thanks, I'll probably get round to them eventually, but I won't make a point of doing them as soon as they become available.

    I agree about the combat system but the art direction/soundtrack/whining Prince relegated it to being my least favourite in that trilogy.
