My ME3 pre-order still hasn't arrived so getting a few Riddler trophies in Arkham City which I could never be bothered with before.

After the wonder of rediscovering Doom with a few (freeking ace) mods and custom WADs I thought Duke Nukem 3D would be the next logical choice.
Its still a good game, just no-where near as good as my memory led me to believe.

I really dislike it. It's a shame. I wanted to like it, I really did. Nice concept, appealing presentation, platform based puzzles; all looked well.
Unfortunately I'm finding it an exercise in frustration. I get that it's designed so that part of the puzzle is to hit all the nodes in a room without leaving it. Fantastic, great. Only I don't know where the exits are initially do I? So I can spend a bit of time figuring out a puzzle only to fall through an exit which then has me falling through several other bloody rooms, putting me miles away from the puzzle I'd almost figure out. Fan-bloody-tastic, that's obviously just what I wanted! Plus the controls often lag slightly meaning that an attempt to move a single space to light up a node nearby an exit sees the character careering into the next room undoing any work I've done. Hooray!
Also unless I'm missing something obvious there's a certain degree of luck involved. The whole losing nodes when you teleport thing seems arbitrary at best (I assume unveiling more blocks makes you less likely to lose a node on teleporting but what gets lost seems completely arbitrary leading to lots of cycles of me teleporting again and again, hoping to get the outcome I want but having no clue whether it's actually going to be the case.
Not to mention the rather unhelpful map system.
So as much as I want to like it I can't recommend it, though lots of people seem to rather enjoy it so maybe I'm just being a bit dense/suffering from control lag that others don't see. Would definitely recommend trying the demo first, I don't grudge buying it as it was very cheap but at that same time I'd rather have bought something else!
And just so this whole post isn't negativity (I don't like being negative, me), I've also been playing Stacking which is as lovely and charming as everyone says it is.

Test Drive Unlimited 2
Start: Eh. Why the fuck has it started windowed?
Few minutes later: Why can't I fucking steer?
Hour later: Why the fuck are all these shoes with heels?
Another hour later: Vrooooooom
Another hour later: WHERE DID THE TIME GO
A further hour later: OH GOD I'VE BEEN PLAYING THIS ALL EVENING I LIKE IT QUITE A BIT

Were I any more tongue-in-cheek I'd probably categorize various sub-genres of "indie" game as
- Slightly crap platformer
- Graphical UI for music collection
- "art" game

Also don't forget "mainstream title with the fun removed".

Spent an hour or so on Gemini Rue and am surprised to find no silly vague item puzzels. Thus far the usage of items makes sense.
Center 7 creeps me out.
