    No. I had the same trouble, gave up and played in windowed mode.

    Finished the main campaign for Fallout 3 yesterday, and I think I can call this game done. There are still a few side quests to do, including all of the DLC content which I haven't even touched, but I just don't have the desire to do any of it.

    This is pretty much how I've always reacted to Bethesda games. I have a lot of fun with it up front, but eventually they get too samey and the amount of stuff to do that is all the same is just uninteresting. Ah well, I still got my money's worth of enjoyment out of it.

    Gonna take a crack at Revenge of the Titans this evening.

    ForumWarz, funny enough.

    Beyond that, I haven't touched a game since the end of Guild Wars 2's last beta. All I want to play is Guild Wars 2.

    Ah, it's such a joy to find that one game. May you start high and burn slow, Nalano.

    Tanner - "I need keys."

    Jones - "You need pants."

    Tanner - "... give me yours."


    Finished Driver: San Fran and I'm surprised they didn't Total Recall the ending because there's a thousand side missions left to finish in Tanner's head (seriously, and I thought Saint's Row the Third had a lot of side missions!) Doesn't matter, the game is happy to drop you back in imagination city after the credits and let you finish whatever you want.

    The final battle in Tanner's head was like a Jedi fight with cars. So awesome. The final battle in the real world was rather anti-climatic in comparison. There's a message there somewhere. I think it's that the real world kinda sucks.

    This week I will be playing Crusader Kings 2, Might and Magic: Clash of Subtitles, Hegemony Gold: Wars of Subtitles, and Magic: The Subtitle: Duels of the Subsubtitles.
    Irrelevant on further examination of the rest of the thread.

    Bioshock 2 - I think I enjoyed it more than the first. It hasn't got that Andrew Ryan moment of course, but the mechanics feel a bit better and the story is quite good. I liked the ending, I believe I got the "good" ending where I rescued all the little sisters.

    Spacechem, Atropos Station, Assignment 5: Accidents Happen continues to defy me. 70 symbols in, and I discover that it all falls apart once the second Phosphorous atom comes along. I'm going to be a hundred years old before I finish this game.

    Today I found myself enjoying more Just Cause 2 than the other days, I guess I just can't play iy like I play most games. I must pick it for smaller bursts and inbetween games that are really different, like Civ IV and Mirror's Edge right now. When I started with it I had just finished Saints Row: The Third, so I guess it wasn't different enough.

    I started Bioshock last night as well; it's my 2nd try at playing the game. I don't really remember why I gave up on it the 1st time, so I decided to go back to it and get my ass through it.

    The opening 2 hours are quite enjoyable and atmospheric and challenging. One thing that kinda took me aback where the few points where the game takes control from you and goes in the 1st person cutscene mode. Why anyone would do this is beyond me, especially a game that's already praying at the altar of Half Life.

    A fisherdwarf is trapped in the other side of the stream. I don't know how he got there, but he does have a swimming skill at least at Novice or Adequete. Then, he went hungry and goes on hunting for vermin, even when he can catch and feed on raw fish everyday until the bridge is erected.

    Slowly playing through a variety of games, but mostly Binary Domain. I find it absurd that people play it using a controller. Then again I'm completely uncoordinated using a controller for any shooting game except LA Noire (which is not really a shooting game at all).

    I just completed Arkham City. The reviews weren't kidding when they stated the game almost has too much content. I initially mocked such comments but whilst playing found myself tripping over optional missions, Riddler trophies and so on and found they did tend to detract from the oppressive atmosphere the game attempted to deliver [which is why in terms of narrative Arkham Asylum is superior game]. Even the amount of dialogue is staggering - I'd try my best to hide in the shadows and listen in on enemies discussing events [most seem to have this weird love-hate relationship with Batman, where they defend him in conversation one minute and then try to kill him] and find the enemies could talk for a minute or so without looping, all whilst discussing current story events and side-mission content.

    It's also one of the few games I've played that successfully pulls off a major plot twist that had been heavily foreshadowed without being overt.

    You do realise you can't die right? Unless you're playing it without using the vita-chambers, in which case, good on you!

    Currently trying to see what people are loving about LoL. It's slowly clicking using Ashe and Ryze, but I'm still rubbish at the game, often getting slayed by bots. I don't know how long it will take me to be able to play competitively against other players and be useful instead of a hindrance but I can imagine it will take a long while. Best advice I've received is don't worry about kills, worry about not getting killed.

    Half-Life 2 and Stacking (I'm doing it the completionist way so it's taking a fair amount of time, only just finished the ship level in 4 hours). I now have a X360 pad so I'm revisiting a few games that I had troubles with using my previous pad, like Lunar Flight and Sequence.

    I'm surprised how much I'm loving Death to Spies. The production values are a bit low, but the mission design is very well done. They are huge, varied, and some of the missions (like the SS schoolhouse one) play almost more like puzzle games than action stealth (and in that sense, it really owes a debt to Commandos, I think). Plus, it's one of the most diabolically difficult games I've ever played. Like, insanely difficult. I was certain, for example, the level where you blow up the bridge was impossible on expert, but then an hour later I figured out a way through it.

    Started playing Metro 2033 and so far, a little conflicted. I've removed the crosshair, changed the voice work to Russian (and put on subtitles, naturally) for that added immersion effect. After that, it all went a little iffy. I say after, what I really mean is during; the game wouldn't recognise KB/M inputs because my controller was plugged in. Because obviously if my controller is plugged in, I'm absolutely going to use it...Anyhow, I eventually got into the game.

    At the moment, none of the guns I have feel like they deliver any impact. I'm not asking for my starter weapons to be good, but I am asking them to feel like guns that shoot bullets as opposed to water pistols that fire water. I really dig the atmosphere though and it's one of the few games I'll allow the excessive "HD is grey" to slip through. Unfortunately, fairly early on I encountered a stealth section that took me an hour to do properly because my throwing knives would either somehow miss the target or I wouldn't kill a person in the precise place that meant the other folks wouldn't immediately go "Ah, what was that sound? While there are many rats running about, how about we take our shotguns and shoot anything that moves." And then the screen starts throbbing red and it's all a bit annoying.

    Perhaps it's coming from Serious Sam - and it probably is - but the lack of manual saving is weak, the inability to carry more weapons than you have slots for (ie. having some sort of inventory) is annoying and stealth sections can go screw themselves. Also, I dislike the game branding me some sort of heartless bastard (an achievement) because when given the choice to pay a kid to take me to someone over me exploring first and then choosing the latter, it wasn't because I wouldn't have happily given money to a hungry child, but because I want to damn well explore the area I'm in first. Nevertheless, I will continue. I get the impression though this will not be a long game, for better or worse.

    On a side note, it does look very pretty in DX11. No idea on my FPS, I imagine it's low but I can't be bothered to check and it seems to be working well enough.
