Finished Resonance. What a great game! I was having a bit of a trouble sticking to it because what looked like sublimely charming retro graphics, had lost part of their appeal and I think Primordia had a hand in this. The middle part of the game, the one with the large multi-part puzzle, I found a bit confusing, but the game really kicked into gear after that.
Puzzles are generally of good quality and logical, although in the big puzzle, I felt like the game was leading me to do some things in a certain order, while really it's not the right one. In particular, one of the subpuzzles requires setting up three characters in a sequence which is reset every time you fail, and it wasn't clear to me you *have* to do those things /before/ you have a chance to solve it, so I ended up going through some unnecessary trial and error.
I'd like to see the second ending but there's no autosave from before the ending, and I was too taken to think about saving. With a score of 317 out of 340 on my first playthrough, I've decided to start a new game, this time with the dev commentary, I usually get tired of that after some time, in which case I'll just replay the ending.
Then, slowly progressing through Mark of the Ninja NG+, begun Iron Brigade, and playing some short games of Dwarfs?!

But so many puzzles used absolute bollocks moon logic, and the 4-character-split puzzles were such a royal pain in the ass, having to constantly drag people back and forth because you needed access to a specific memory or item, uugghh...
And then there's:
And then when you have to choose what button to press at the end of the 4-character section (When THAT happens, at the vault), it turns out that [spoiler] IT DIDN'T MATTER WHAT BUTTON YOU CHOOSE, YOU ALWAYS GET THE SAME RESULT! WHY EVEN GIVE US A CHOICE TO LEAVE US WONDERING WHAT WOULD'VE HAPPENED IF WE PRESSED THE OTHER ONE?! WHY DO SUCH A THING?![/spoiler]
So much bullshit.

Which reminds me, the memory inventory is a great narrative device, because of it the game can dispose with basically all of the usual 'exhaust all the conversation trees before you proceed', it was a refreshing change, really.
It also made me wonder what Resonance could have been with a real budget and team behind it. AFAIK the central theme it tackles wasn't explored nearly enough in fiction, much less in games. Anna's backstory was also the only one which was really fleshed out.

One game last night, inside 10 moves I'd been attacked by 2 other mages and 3 other random groups of creatures - not one of my armies had moved outside the city!! Not a lot you can build in 10 turns either!!
Didn't die either, just pretty much stuck in stasis creating units who'd then be killed endlessly.

Some Planetside 2 with a bunch of friends, great chaotic fun although there are times when certain areas are deserted and taking over bases is just becomes a shuttle run test with a bunch of people just staring at each other.
Decided to give Sonic and All Stars Racing Transformed a try and it's actually a pretty cool and fun cart racing game, it also looks amazing. I'm playing on B level and often get my butt kicked, in some levels more than others.

LA Noire,i run over dead body at crime scene and i needed to replay the mission..DAMN YOU!
Otherwise its getting kinda repetitive,and in third case in a row,we are dealing with stolen car ? Why dear god,authors were without imagination..Game is happening in 1940 right,they could use klu klux klan for example,something with them could be great case. Great!... I take the lives of a few to protect the lives of many. I commit acts of war to preserve the greater peace. I take no joy in killing, but make no mistake; I'll do what needs to be done. Because it's my job. It's my duty. My name is Sam Fisher, and I am a Splinter Cell.

DOW: Dark Crusade was providing a nice alternative to SupCom, but now I've dominated the map to the point where I can max my resource intake right away and the rest of the level is just a matter of slowly creeping across the map with my massive army. Maybe I'll go back and replay Warcraft 3 or something.

Finished up the Nightmare in Northpoint DLC last night for Sleeping Dogs. I'm really enjoying the DLC they're putting out for it. So far both story DLCs have been like movies, one is a Chinese horror about ghosts escaped from hell and abducting your girl and the other (Zodiac Tournament) is a kung-fu movie set on a tropical island where the bad guy is an incredibly old man.
Also played some Awesomenaughts as Lonestar and had my best game every where I went 6-0 and won the game. Went up two leagues (didn't even know there were leagues)

I'm still playing King's Bounty: Crossworlds, but restarted with the Orcs on the March campaign (pretty stupid I didn't do this the first time...). I do like the new Military Academy building, it's a good (if expensive) way to get the better units earlier, by upgrading your current ones. My tiny army currently exists of Inquisitors, Paladins, Archers & Polar Bears. Of which I'm looking for good replacements for the archers and bears. And I really could use more paladins, but the gods of randomness are letting me down.
That set up (droids & dwarfs) sounds also like a good one, might try that out sometime! As for dragons, I haven't had the opportunity to get one yet, but I'll get that skill when I have the opportunity.
