    I just bounced of 2 Lego games (LotR & StarWars Saga) for two different reasons:
    1. LotR - the checkpoint system was awful. I saved using one of the statues mid-game only to discover it didn't work and I would have to replay an hour of game to get back.
    2. Star Wars Saga - why were the characters silent during cutscenes? It would have been a great game but for this 'silence' I stopped playing as the only sound they made was lightsaber 'swuuzz' (which I love btw). Didn't feel like I am progressing on story, rather as if I play disconnected areas.

    Overall, games with great potential, but these design decisions ruined the experience for me.

    So I started Neverwinter Nights 2 yesterday and after modding out some annoying pieces am looking forward.

    The old Lego games didn't have voice acting outside of a couple of laughs or grunts or moans coming from the characters. I think Lego Batman 2 was the first to feature full voice acting.

    Yeah that and the ones with QR codes - Fez doesn't really strike me as a game where the solutions to puzzles should require out of game knowledge/legwork (other than cheating and looking up the answers obviously, might have done that quite a bit myself, very lazy nowadays!).

    To be fair, those are extra puzzles. You don't need them to finish the game. Only if you want to completely get everything. I actually liked that there were some obscure and stupidly impossible puzzles. Not that I would even try to complete them, but at least they're there for the people who enjoy that kind of stuff.

    Is it the GOTY edition, or just the base game? I had similar problems with constant crashes of the GOTY edition, eventually it turned out to be related to the load order of the different DLC's being wrong. Installing the mod manager (along with the community fixes) so you could manually set the load order fixed it for me.

    Then after a few hours I just gave up as the game turned out to be way too dull.

    Dumb question, but make sure you disable all mods and do a clean install.

    I had problems with one of the Bethesda games for far too long because the download on the nexus didn't explicitly state that a separate download was required for the resources. Yeah...

    Played about 90 minutes of The Swapper. I was actually bored for the first 15 or so minutes and thinking yet another one of those metroidvansomethings where I need to go back and forth n times before I figure out what I need to fetch to be able and get past this puzzle, until the revelation hit me like a bright flash of light and made me go "cleeeeeeeeeeeeeever" and from that point on I was properly hooked.

    Thanks for Tikey so I don't have to think about what to reply and then give up. All that is good with the game is more than good enough that I hardly ever felt frustrated with it (there was one bonus stage near the e nd where I came close though). Like for some bands, you need to be able to put the public persona of the frontman aside and just enjoy the experience, there was nothing in the game that made me think about the poisson guy anyway.

    Just finished Moebius. I liked it and I thoroughly disagree with the WIT on the front page. Mostly because it reads more like Mr Walker had decided he didn't like then wrote arguments to support the preconceived notion. (especially cheap shots like the 'rape' picture, which makes sense in context, but ripped out of context you can wave it around and be offended by it)

    Yes, the animations suck. No excuse here.
    Yes, the story is not literature. Though I'd rate it about your average conspiracy fare. (and the ending wasn't the strongest part)
    Yes, there are weak puzzles. Though they are a good deal more logical then I'm used to in adventure games.

    I enjoyed the meta-puzzling with the investigations.

    The rest of the WIT seemed more like an ad hominem attack to the developer in a case of mistaking the narrator for the writer. I did not find the game having contempt for women, nor men, except for certain individuals, which are indeed objectified as being puzzles/obstacles, especially considering how the examples are described.

    I'd say if you enjoyed Gray Matter, and do not object the lead character resembling the one from QWOP due to the marring animations, you will enjoy this game.

    Even though he always came out as a prick, after watching Indie Game the movie I kinda feel sorry for the guy. He seems to have some serious issues.

To this end, I had my aging wife murdered and got myself a attractive lustful princess from Georgia. Helping them out with a minor civil war was a small price, really. She is pregnant now, I'm hoping for a great heir.

    There was some infighting between the muslims, Arabs and Persians were fighting, you see. The Arabs wanted to subjugate all of Persia.I was not going to allow it, of course. Over the last 40 years they did a lot to unify the muslim front against me and since I only control the coastline of the Holy Land, some of Anatolia and coast of Egypt, I border the Arab empire almost exclusively. I declared war on them and kept fighting even after they tried to surrender the eastern Syrian provinces to me.

    The Persians managed to hold their own with me keeping the vast majority of Arab forces committed and after the Arabs surrendered to both of us some factions in the Caliphate took this chance to revolt. With most of the loyalist soldiers dead, I don't know what will happen. Maybe they'll break apart and become easy pickings.


    edit: Oh and I captured the Caliph's 6 years old daughter.I am having one of my courtiers educate her as a proper christian. Heh, heh.
    I was trekking through here to see what folks were playing when I came upon this post. After the first sentence I was ready to offer my condolences. After the second I was...worried. Until the last word of the first paragraph I was beginning to become very concerned.

    Then I saw the word 'heir' and knew immediately I had missed something. So I scrolled back up a ways and saw the 'Playing Crusader Kings 2' line at the top.

    Does this game always generate such in depth personal narratives? Much as I enjoy reading and a good intrigue, perhaps I overlooked this somehow.

    Now, if only I could find something as atmospheric as Dark Souls without the frustration level...back to Steam I go.

    You may not be able to play them, but if you have a GC, Wii, or very, very powerful computer you should give the Metroid Prime series a shot. They're absolute masterclasses in level design, difficulty, archaeological storytelling and atmosphere. Far better than DaS, I'd go so far as to say.

    Kerbal Space Program, and lots of it. It's an unbelievably versatile game, I spent hours making my own sub-orbital aircraft based on The Flying Bedstead, quadcopter drones (except with rockets instead of propellers) and the Ryan Vertijet. Then I decided to just get on with it and made a rocket that was four stages of solid fuel boosters (the first stage is many, many rockets, second is 12, third is 3 and the final is just one) and two stages of liquid fuel rockets, though the second is completely redundant because the first has more than enough fuel to get me quite far away from Kerbin indeed... At one end of the orbit. The other end is still pretty low. I only started playing yesterday and I've already done 13 hours.

    Just started Zork. It's really fun just trying to map the place! I started drawing a map, and the geometry of the place is really interesting and tricky.

    I went back to playing Soul Sacrifice on my Vita. Been getting into the Multiplayer side of it, which is much more fun than the solo, though the solo side is where you'll get all of the really good lore from the game.

    Well, I am playing AC Black Flag and Red Dead Redemption (ps3). Actually, these two games have pretty alive open worlds... but the most interesting thing is that second missions are more breath-taking than main quest lines... Also I bought Battle slots for my xbox360 (I am a fan of slot machines but I play only free=) ). And I bought it because I just found a video on youtube))) and it reminded me this game http://webslotcasino.com/battlestar_galactica. I used to play it for hours... well, lets see what xbox360 Battle slots can offer for my brainzzzzz=)

    Wouldn't a slot machine without money involved just be pressing a button and randomly winning or losing? Doesn't really sound like hours worth of entertainment to me, but to each his own, I suppose.

    That's what a slot machine WITH money is too. Only without the winning part.
