I'm mostly playing Tribes: Ascend and a bit BF3 with some friends.
I have so many other (single player) games I want to play and finish (I recently started to play Mass Effect 1), but after a few hours/sessions I go back to my MP games ... :/ don't know why
Oh my... I am replaying Binding of Isaac (I forgot to backup my saves before formatting harddisk (well, not exactly forgot - I thought they are on Steam cloud >.<)). So far I am 7 out of 10 Mom's heart's deaths and I finally confronted Satan himself. I had lots of great upgrades - A pony, common cold, lump of coal, rock, the mark, spoon bender, tons of it, really and he killed me again! Ugh, I hate that game! Also, I cannot wait for the expansion :)
Don't even get me started on what I had to go through to get to mission 15. Mission 14, where you have to destroy four large cannons so D-Day can commence a little easier gave me nightmares. 15 is just impossible because the combinations of patrols, sight cones, number of guards, no alarms allowed or your target leaves the map, the complete and utter lack of leeway given to you is downright insane.
/rocks back and forth
I'm... I'm just up to mission 4 for now. Now I'm scared.
The first 10 missions are tricky rather than brutal and require patience more than anything to resolve them. But the second half of the game is just ugh...mission 12 onwards is where it got tough for me. Pretty sure 12, 13 and 14 combined were almost as long the previous missions combined in number of hours played.
What difficulty are you playing on?
I too thought Fenris was uninteresting and again, didn't fit in with my 2H Hawke and I didn't use Merril too much, mostly because she made me think of Torchwood (she plays a lead role in it). I didn't mind Bethany so much...to be honest, by the end game, I was just happy to have her there considering she had all these talent points and a crap ton of power. I think her and Aveline did most of the work on my final boss attempt.
Anyhow, I'm still playing the Mass Effect 3 multiplayer. Give it a week and I'll be starting one of the games from my 13 or so backlog. Might start with Psychonauts or Bulletstorm, haven't decided which. I'll also be introducing a friend to Ocarina of Time tomorrow. I can't wait to go through it again, been so long and doing it with someone who hasn't experienced it at all before? Fantastic.
I'm failing to writing a blog, specifically about playing games the wrong way
That is what i've been attempting to do as going from the right of the canal seems to be a no go. The problem is that the guard who goes up and down the stairs screws up my approach towards the smoking guard. The patrol that takes a full circle of the area isn't helping either. I've managed to get rid of the first two guards right at the start so at least that area is clear. I can't snipe the stairs guard either because apparently, Duke kneels so the wall on the edge of road gets in his line of sight. :/
Ugh. I'll get it eventually I suppose but thanks for the tip anyway.
Oh and is it me or is the MP too annoyingly finnicky with how to clock up points to be any fun? I've played with 2 and 3 players and both times it was pretty much a clusterfuck, with not much real chance to line up the kind of kills expected of you to rack up the necessary points. We ended up one of us kicking and leashing and the other doing finishers, which was boring as chuff.
Torchlight, because it's more entertaining than Diablo's login screen.
Max Payne 3. This game's pretty brutal.
Playing through Portal 1 and 2 as well, and Deus ex: HE. I hated Deus Ex: HE the first time I played it...but I'm starting to warm up to it even if Jensen is a douchebag.
