    I'm now messing around with Melty Blood: Actress Again: Current Code's recently release PC demo, since it's one of the few fighting games to get a PC release that is even slightly big. Sadly the full version is prohibitively expensive, and not released yet, but the demo will do for now. It also allows online play which is pretty cool although I have no one to play with :(

    As well as getting lost in Might and Magic IV, managed to reach around level 10 on my party.

    I bought the 1+2 collection and 3 right when I got my PS3, so I decided getting 5 GOW games at once would be a little bit overkill. I'm pretty sure that they're referenced a few times in the story, though, so I might pick them up when they're cheap.... There were a couple times (or every single time...) when NPCs acted like they knew Kratos even though I'd never seen them before, and sometimes it just wasn't explained.

    I have the PSP version of Chains of Olympus (the first PSP GoW game), when I played through it I thought it was prettty good but also quite short.

    The first levels of Orcs Must Die. The gameplay was OK, but the presentation is so, so terrible.
    Serves me right for not trying the demo before buying it a couple of weeks ago. The gift I receive for that achievement better be good! At the moment it's MIA.

    Tried Dungeon Defenders, tried Orcs Must Die, ended up going back to Sanctum. I'm closing on 50 hours and this thing is not getting old, either in single player or co-op. It's ridiculous, I've played this more than I've played Fallout New Vegas!

    Oddly, despite elaborate plans to start a big RPG or strategy game the other thing I find myself playing is Silent Hunter 4, not that I'm complaining. I never gave this one a proper due, despite thinking it was absolutely fascinating, so I'm pleased that I seem to have finally worked up the nerve to give it a proper tackling.

    Has anyone else played Bloodrayne: Betrayal on the consoleboxes? It's half off on XBLA and I'm a huge Wayforward fan so I used some old points to pick it up. First of all, whoever decided to give this a "T" rating was out of his mind. Beheadings and blood geysers seem to be a common theme (not that I'm complaining, but I can see some upset mothers over that one.) The game plays a lot better than its contemporaries - Shank being the most notable one - the combat feels a lot more fleshed out and skill based than just funneling every enemy through my shotgun/dual machete grinder. Just don't go in expecting Castlevania; while the atmosphere is largely the same the actual gameplay is a lot closer to Bayonetta. To that end, the game is also great at reminding me how much I suck: F ratings on every level I've completed :/

    Again, sunk some more time into Orcs Must Die. The game is at its best when it just pours enemies into my meticulously created deathtraps, and at its worst when it blows them up with those goddamn kobold sappers. My general strategy is "Oh I can use swinging mace traps? This level is awesome!"

    And finally, started Cave Story+. I can see why this game gets the praise that it does, but I HATE that the enemies respawn everytime you leave/enter a room. This works in Metroid games because the enemy placement is actually well thought out, whereas Cave Story goes more the clusterfuck route. Especially with the amount of backtracking the game expects of you.

    (I also cranked out a couple of Steam achievements today... Why am I so bad at Revenge of the Titans?)

    Finished the Ad. Vice desk in L.A. Noire, so now in the home stretch. I'm interested in what the grand finale will be. It's a good game, but there's a ton of wasted potential here.

    While browsing for games on Amazon, I came across one I'd never heard of, Venetica, which as far as I can is only sold digitally by Diret2Drive for too much money. The elevator pitch is that it's an action RPG set in fantasy Venice, in which you play the daughter of Death, which sold me. The box arrived yesterday, so I fired it up and played a couple hours, and actually I'm really enjoying it. Don't interpret that as a recommendation. It's dopey, but it has a charming naivete which I find endearing. In the first scene, my village is burned and my boyfriend takes arrow in the knee--I mean, through the chest. And dies in my arms. It's much better than Dragon Age 2. I haven't even reached Venice yet!

    The first two to three hours of gameplay are actually quite nice, but everything really grinds to one of the most horrible, unsatisfying halts once you reach Venice.

    If I hadn't gotten the game for free from the publisher, I'd be complaining a lot more.

    I got to Venice, and to be honest I just stopped caring about it. I should really go back to it at some point...

    I stopped caring at the point where I was supposed to find a few pigeons somewhere on the different houses. Completely stopped my interest there.

    Ha ha, well, I'll let you know at what point my interest evaporates. I like Venice (and cities in general, I wish more RPGS were set in cities rather than countryside/castles/dungeons/caves/etc.), so I'm hopeful, but pigeon scouting may be too much for me. Then again, if they can keep tempting me with the promise of new outfits... (when I equipped the leather armor, seeing it form the front, I was surprised at how kind of sensible it was, as armor for a woman. Then I moved the camera to behind and... oh dear, backless.)

    Same reason I finished Alice: Madness Returns, really.

    Cleared up the rest of the Blackwell games. I really enjoyed all of them, the stories all tie very well together and the whole murder-mystery thing is intriguing. Theres even a little moral choice at the end. Puzzle wise... pretty solid overall. I looked up a walkthrough twice due to unclear puzzles, but other than that everything made logical sense. However, each game is only 2-3 hours long, and I wonder how I'd feel if I'd paid full price rather than getting them in the Indie Royale.

    Straight after I looked up Deception at their site- but at 12 quid its not something I feel I can justify right now.

    Just to see a storyline do you have to play the game as a multiplayer.

Is the multiplayer component completely avoidable or you have to do raids, pvp, group pve and stuff like that?

    no.
    you can play thru all the story lines and quests solo.
    the only time you group up is to to the heroic or flashpoint missions (not interesting at all).
    you get some extremely effective companions that are with you.
    my companion for my sith marauder is a rock solid ranged dps....i cant keep aggro sometimes, she kicks republic ass.
    so if you want to play for story content on your own its totally do-able.

    Because I like achieving things I tried to do all those achievements in Steam winter sale. And I finally managed to play And Yet It Moves for the first time (it has been sitting in my library for quite some time) and I like it! The concept is great, the puzzles are cool and sometimes even witty! I think I'm gonna try to actually finish that game now :)

    Pried upon Super Meat Boy for the two Christmas achievements. They're unbelievably hard.

    I then realised Renegade Ops had given me free DLC. Almost shot through it all in one go, but died on the final boss, which was a tad annoying. I'll be sure to come back and finish the job later. One of the new characters deploys a shield which is pretty awesome, perhaps a little overpowered too. Nevertheless, they've abandoned all sense of normality and gone more towards crazy. The final boss is definitely an epitome of this in a glorious, but hard, way.
    Powered by Steam. And biscuits. I'm also a twit and dabble in creative writing.

    Playing Trine 2 after Alice: Madness returns, my eyes feel like they've had a twenty-one course meal. Both games are visually stunning, a fantastic contrast to the limited dirt brown spectrum dominating today's AAA titles.

    Currently trying to survive in Skyrim. And a dash of Revelations on the side. Plus some other stuff.

    I've been putting way too much time in Saints Row 3. I can't get enough of it. Damn, just mentioned it and already got the urge to go blast rival gang activities with my VTOL fighter.

    I really enjoyed the demo, but lately I've just not even bothered with the 360.

    I know this sounds a bit ridiculous, but that horrible dashboard update really just killed the love I had for the 360. Advertisements everywhere, it loads slower for me, Netflix and Hulu are worse in this incarnation then they were previously and the whole thing just feels like such a chore to slog through. Why are games so far to the right? Why is it constantly pushing stuff in my face I don't care about like UFC, Verizon TV and World of Warcraft? (this is the weirdest one.)

    I really think Microsoft messed up with this one.

    Not to mention those sales on XBLA are pathetic compared to Steam. New Vegas DLC at $5 a piece? It was just $2.50 on PC. Bastion was a good $2.50 cheaper, so was Renegade Ops.. the cash adds up after awhile. The upside is that I didn't have to deal with that asinine points system.

    Sorry for ranting, just ugh, had to get it off my chest.
