    Still playing Catherine, up to the sixth night. I can't get enough of the announcer at the beginning of each 'boss' stage: "The [Child/Doom's Bride/etc.] has arrived. It's the killer. Do not die." I wish all video games came with such succinct instructions.

    EDIT: Found a clip with the voiceover, ~0:20:



    Also I can't believe that Katherine may be cheating on me. =/

But G4 is just the right size, nearly every mission can be completed in 3 or 4 different ways (often without fighting at all), and the storyline is far and away the best of any spiderweb game I've ever played.
    You are going to have such a ball with GF5.

    It's called a respect for superb audio design and insanity resulting from enjoyment of adventure games, I'd say.

    If you want you could just turn around at the end of the dungeon and spend 5-20mins of your life walking out with pride. Throw on that Proclaimers song while doing it to enhance the fun. On repeat, of course.

    Thanks to a few weeks of break from everything (stomach bugs, exams, weekend retreats) I've not been able to really play games at all (or do anything else) but slowly getting back into things. Still trudging with Amalur every now and then - enjoyable, but can only play for small portions every now and then because it's getting a bit monotonous. What's been taking my time moreso has been Rayman Origins that a friend got me for my birthday a while back. Now, despite pretty much starting my gaming life with an endless armada of 2D platformers, I've gone off the genre quite a lot in the recent years and it's really hard for me to find one that really sticks with me. Sonic Generations' 2D parts did it last year and now Rayman Origins has stolen my heart. Such a wonderfully charming, adorable, lovely, feel-good, funny, beautiful, perfectly executed game that is, to put it simply, incredibly fun. The level design is excellent, the art style and animation are AMAZING, the difficulty is spot-on and it's all just so damn charming and charismatic. I can't help but smile when playing it. Lovely, lovely little thing.
    Give me steam and how you feel to make it real.

    No what bothers me about it isn't the shortcut, it's the predictable structure of the whole thing. Every mission I take on, doesn't matter if I'm working for the Bard's college, or the Mage's guild, or just some random mini-quest, or woteva. It's gonna be the same deal regardless: travel to cave/cairn/ruin, crawl down a linear tunnel, boss room at the end, shortcut out. Would it have killed 'em to throw in a few more open-ended maps for the quests, like something you'd meet in Doom, or Thief, or Deus Ex? (Ok, high-standards I know, but at LEAST just a few different patterns!)

    There could probably be a few more sprawly interiors, but I guess you go into a dungeon to get something different from the open exterior so it isn't that bad.
    Irrelevant on further examination of the rest of the thread.

    I'm finished with Binding of Isaac for now.

    That took a lot more time than I'd care to admit. Now, since the Dead State Kickstarter just launched two days ago I figured I'd play through Vampire: Bloodlines again to see if it's as good as I remember. But I don't know what clan I should choose. Already played as Brujah, Malkavian and Nosferatu. Any suggestions?

    and what kind would that be? ;)

    The game is not without flaws, the writing can be uneven, and the twitter integration is just a little more tolerable than Word's Clippy. But it was also a game that dragged me in its world as I was playing it, and that's about one of the greatest compliment I can make to any game.

    If you've done all of this and it's a DoD issue, ignore me :]
    Thanks! It helped!

    The later levels of Tidalis are rather fiendish.

    @fiddlesticks Malkavian are the best thing in the game, best dialogue, best unique content, best "your character spelling out the plot of the game but it didn't make sense at the time", best argument with inanimate objects, best conversation "win button" (insanity).

    Feel free to play Malkavian 2nd, but don't miss out.

    But yes, for anyone else reading that might not have beaten VtmBloodlines as Malkavian: you're missing out on some of the funniest and most interesting dialogues in the game. Although I'd say that Malkavian is best played for a 2nd run, really puts into perspective some bits of insanity.

    I second that. Nozzie's are third.

    any other clan can be first.

    Finished Saints row 3 yesterday now getting stuck into AC: Revelations. Why do games have to have such long tutorials, yeah AC games are about the worst, 3 hours in and still being told about stuff. Thing is it is pretty much the same as the last 3 games. Still I love the game though. Once I finished this I will go back and finish Torchlight.

    I found Toreador to be a pretty great clan to go with thanks to the Celerity power. Bullet time in a game with wonky combat is a blessing.
