    No it's not. As I've said before;


    1. The supernatrual events are not properly signposted.
    2. Too many human enemies.
    3. No standout moments except for the 'tinitus' moment.
    4. Two weapon loadout.
    5. The walker sections aren't as good as FEAR 2's.
    6. The end was pointless and under explained.

    He actually is in my game, but he is pretty weak at the moment.

    I just finished Alpha Protocol and I am PISSED! During all the mission I was trying to be non-lethal but it's not really that easy when you can have only 36 tranquilizer rounds on yourself plus I somehow missed 3 (THREE!!!) objectives in the last misson even though I 100%d' all the other missions. I have no idea how that happened.
    Oh yes, these objectives had something to do with Mina (I did not rescue her) and possibly Scarlet so they are probably dead. Plus I had to repeat this one bit after the fight with S. Darcy like a bazillion times because the game did not spawn the chopper where it should've been. Peachy.
    I wanted to praise this game so much but now I just feel betrayed by my own country! Err, I mean by the game, of course.

    Trucking on with Serious Sam: Second Encounter and I think I've completed the second full level. Still, allow me to offer you some perspective; estimated play time of around 1 hour, according to the post-level stats. Saves - 45.

    There are few other games that I would permit me going "Oooooooooh shit!" to this frequently, but even when I inevitably die and have to reload, it's still worth it.

    Such a lovely game! Definitely the best surprise from the Steam summer sale so far. Never read the RPS articles on it back when it was released, so had no idea of what kind of game it was. It's really addicting!
    Just made it through the factory.

    Does a quad-core help with the performance because I am getting a lot of slow-down, ( at the moment I have Windows 7 and a GTX 560 and 4g of RAM).

    Hmmm... Well, I have a hexacore CPU but an old Radeon HD4670, and it seems to work well for me. I get a few frameskips in certain rooms, but I can definitely live with that.

    Guild wars 2, only recently. But need to wait for the release. For me this is going to be THE game for a long time. To be correct, the currently game I play is LoL for time to time.

    Played a bit of Test Drive Unlimited 2. The driving with a wheel is a bit 'meh'. Not very impressed by that, so I'll have to see if there's some tweaking that can be done with various settings to make it a bit more interesting. The original TDU was never great at this either, but I don't recall it being this wobbly. On another note, it's such a shame that they recreated a lot of the actual real-world roads and then just placed random buildings everywhere. Anyway, a typical 'nothing special, but worth a couple of euros' kind of racing game.

    Still waiting for that free-roam racer with decently realistic physics and an interesting and detailed world!

    LA Noir bored me for a while by providing several random cases, but I'm really getting into it after being promoted to Homicide. I've been given interconnected cases with the same MO. There's a serial killer on the loose out there who has become my arch-nemesis, and every time I start a new related case I say to myself "this is the one where I'll finally nail the bastard." But it never seems to happen. I always end up with insurmountable evidence against an obvious suspect which just smells wrong.

    Bah. One day he'll make a mistake, and then I'll pounce on him like a ninja.

    Traffic is pretty much an extended tutorial.

    Replaying Prince of Persia 2008. What a wonderful game! The presentation and atmosphere are amazing. I enjoy the focus on timing and "going with the flow" for platforming. Was never a fan of precision platforming. The combat is much better now that I'm using a controller.
    In my two previous attempts to play this I abandoned it when facing the immortal boss. I think I'll play it to the end now.

    Alright, I'm done with Alice: Madness Returns. Interesting art design (though too much of the first chapter is drab and industrial), but ultimately much too repetitive, much too padded out, and much too platformy for my tastes. The combat's pretty good, but even that gets old, and don't get me started on all the instadeath platforming elements. So, yeah, done. Didn't pay much for it, didn't get much out of it, fair all around.

    Considering going back to Hegemony Gold, or starting a new game of Fallout New Vegas (gotta check my mods to make sure I'm up to date),or both. We'll see what sticks.

    Edit: While I'm dicking around, I think I'll try this copy of Theatre of War 2 a charming individual gifted me awhile back and see if it sucks.

    Edit2: Based on messing around with it for a short while it appears to be a crude version of Men of War.

    Blowing stuff up with a purple attack helicopter to the sound of Wagner doesn't seem to get old ...

    Related question: When is the best time to do the Season Pass DLC missions (before/after completion of the main story) and in what chronological order?

    I'd say you can do them whenever you feel, they don't really have any tie to the story and give you some cool stuff when completed, and if for some reason you want to do them again you can repeat them as many times as you please.

    Since I finished Deus Ex: HR, from wich I didn't really like all of the Panchea bit, I started with Just Cause 2. It seems fun, but the interface is ugly as all hell, the subtitles are too low on the screen and the voicework is kind of bad. Nothing I can't get used to, though.

    "Kind of bad" is a massive understatement I think. It hovers somewhere between "hilariously terrible" and "a crime against humanity".
