Well, shit. I tried installing World in Conflict today, but my computer isn't up to the task of maxing it so I decided to put it away until I have one that can. I've got plenty of other games to play that run proper anyways.
Moving to the extreme opposite of the spectrum, I went ahead and loaded up Ultima Underworld for the first time. I fumbled my way through making a Paladin, wandered around a bit, and then got stuck at the bottom of a pit because I wanted to find out the hard way if the ramp I was walking down cut off. I'm assuming there's a lot of moments like this? I can see why it has such a fanatical fanbase (especially amongst those who got to play it at the time! An automap? In 1992? Are you taking notes, [every single game that lacks an automap]?) but I keep struggling with the cursor not quite lining up with my mouse movements. Are there hotkeys to switch between look/grab/attack? Also, some way to move items into my inventory without laboriously dragging them over there would be really nice.
Anyways, I'll probably need to pore over the tome of a manual before going back, so I'm off to play something else that I've been cruelly neglecting.

Yesterday I finished my Napoleon: Total War AAR in which I make a try for the Medallion of the Imperial Psychopath achievement. I won't tell youhow it ends, you'll just have to read it yourself.
Today I shall be moving on to Shogun 2, a game that I have been waiting to play for some time. If I do an AAR for it I am sure it will end up on the forums here.

After 26k battles (10k if them in beta) I give up just last week on World of Tanks. That game makes me allergic to MMO and the thought of a grind. Also, was playing GR:FS last week, I cringe what the next R6 may be like.
Right now, I'm playing Rage, finally decided to pick it up when I saw a deal, just $12. Liking that game more than I thought I would.

Just finished Deus Ex: Human Revolution. The last area/zone was rather underwhelming, not sure what to really think of the entire game yet. Some of the areas were beautiful though, fantastic atmosphere at times."He has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to

Dues Ex - The missing link. Was enjoying it but fed up now of going back and fourth through the same area for like the fourth time. Real lazy level design. A shame cause I loved the main game.If graphics are not important why spend so much on a GPU?

Yeah, he's a real winner in the casino. (See what I did there.)

Alice: Madness Returns is a shitty game but it sure looks good. I stopped at some bullshit timed run & jump part less than two hours in. I'm debating if I should push forward or not - I'm not entertained by the gameplay but the visuals are amazing...
I didn't like the original either.

...also, Sonic CD doesn't want to work on integrated intel graphics. This makes me rather disappointed.

So Alice: Madness Returns sucks. The combat is unbearable. Wasted 5 bucks but my curiosity was satisfied.
Now Bastion freezes very often for a couple of seconds. Woe is me.

^That's a shame. Like I said, the parts are all in place... The game remains eminently playable compared to other PC games of the era, but the wonky mouse movement on such a mouse-heavy interface is killing it for me right now. I'll have to poke around in Setpoint and see if there isn't some setting that at least feels a little better.
Edit: messing with the polling rate seems to have done the trick!
x2: And apparently the function keys swap between actions! I can't wait to dive into this with gusto, especially now that I actually know how to look up/down.

If it has a fault it's that you can deal with roaming enemies in a lazy way but when you run into the set pieces, if you're not worked out how to do it properly, you'll get your shit kicked-in.
It was the thing which kept me going in the game tbh - when the levels seemed to stretch on forever, I simply looked-forward to the challenging combat bits...
