I realized long ago that to make sense of any of the PCs in RPGs you have to imagine them as incredibly nosy busybodys who can't stand letting anything happen without their involvement.

Jumped into King of Dragon Pass. It's really interesting, but also baffling, even after the tutorial and manual - maybe a bit like Paradox games. I don't know what I'm doing half the time, but it seems likely that the only way to figure it out is to plough ahead.
Also played a bit of Rayman: Oranges until I got frustrated. It's forgiving by the standards of platformers, but I've never been all that good at platformers."Harry uses the One Ring to defeat Magneto and save the Rebellion!"
With thanks to RaveTurned in comments on the main page.

Just finished Bioshock Infinite, which was absolutely brilliant.
I'll be gobsmacked if there's a better singleplayer shooter this year.

So now I am playing Infinite, Planetside 2 and GW2.

Well, I definitely positively love Nier.
I love it so much, in fact, that I am about to go replay the first 12 hours (I imagine it will take me less time the second time around) because I only found out after saving that NG+ won't let me complete the quests from the first half of the game. So... yeah. God damn it :pSteam: Gundato
If you want me on either service, I suggest PMing me here first to let me know who you are.

Finished the New Vegas Dead Money DLC.
Spoilers: There was almost 400,000 caps worth of treasure in the vault... in heavy gold bars. And since you have to be able to run in order to escape, I only made it out with 20k. Damnit. Should've dumped everything but my underwear.

God, if I'd slogged through the unending torture that is Dead Money and all I got for my trouble was a bunch of caps, I'd have been even more murderous towards that god-awful DLC than I already was. I'm doubly glad I gave up on that one, now!

Dead Money is significantly harder if you use guns. That's because the Junk Rounds perk is seriously broken and has nothing on its energy weapon counterpart, Vigilant Recycler. Oddly enough, this wasn't fixed in Project Nevada (at least it wasn't when I played, almost a year ago). Jsawyer did fix it, however."Reason is the madness of the strongest"

I've put a couple of hours into Brutal Legend now and, after coming from The Witcher, I feel like I've gone from one good-but-flawed game to another, but I think this one is not as good and more flawed. For one, the driving feels really poor. Handling doesn't settle quite right with me and I feel like the frame rate is really indecisive. I've turned what I'm sure is Vysnc on and I know I should be able to get 60fps on this, but something just feels off and I can't put my finger on it. Combat is simple albeit not in a bland way, but the lack of a health bar is frustrating because it's then hard to know how much damage you're taking. I don't mind the quick regen health, it's not like I expected this game to have the combat depth of something like Devil May Cry, but then mix in the feeling (not that they necessarily are) that some enemies are bullet sponges and combat altogether just feels a bit flat. I am playing on hard, but I don't think that would really diminish any of these problems, at least not significantly.
The secondary quests, well, already two hours in I've had repetition and even these shown signs of not being really polished. Take that "Ambush" quest. Sometimes your allies will die really quickly, other times they'll be fine and you'll feel like you've almost not done much. The racing ones feel not entirely balanced, not to mention infused with the same vehicle issues I have above, but can be quite frustrating. Of the two I had available, the second one took a good 15 minutes because whenever I got close to the other vehicle, so much as touching it would almost send me the wrong way. Considering that at that point in the race if you flipped out you would essentially have no chance of catching up, it was very frustrating.
It's all really at odds with the music and design which are fantastic. I feel like, even this early into the game, the cracks are obvious and the game needed more time. I've had to restart to some checkpoints for dying to things I didn't feel like I'd taken damage from previously and so on and so forth.

Played and finished Waking Mars. Interesting setting, characters and story, but dear god the whole planting thing felt more and more like a chore the further I went in. Glad to be done with it.
After buying it ages ago shortly after release because I enjoyed the demo, I've FINALLY started War of the Human Tanks proper, and I'm quite enjoying it.
It's simple, but works and manages to be somewhat challenging, and I'm a bit of a sucker for the stupid wackiness that revolves around what passes as "story". The game doesn't take itself seriously, and that's probably for the best. Pretty much meets the expectations the demo created.
I would however suggest that if japanese/animu stuff puts you off, you avoid this game like the freaking plague.

I now realize why nobody plays Dwarf Fortress on 200fps

After 30 hours or so in Dark souls I feel like I must play a bit of something else tonight.
I think I'll play Limbo. I started a bit yesterday. i'll try to finish it in one sitting.
