    True; I didn't think of that one because I don't think there's really a dichotomy there. You can actually role-play, for once.

    Very underrated game. That it didn't do well enough to warrant a sequel is one of this generation's great tragedies.

    I went back into Crysis after watching that COMPLETELY AWESOME ironman LP someone around here linked the other week. Not feeling as awesome as that guy looked though. :P It looks so easy when he does it, but then he has the position and patrol of every damn enemy in the game memorized lol.

    You know what? Five playthroughs done and that's the only thing that I haven't done yet in that game. Oh, man, I think I need to start a new run

    Anyone who's looking for a well-done evil path in an RPG should play Neverwinter Nights 2: Mask of the Betrayer. Or, failing that at least read the excellent LP of it. It's the only game that made me feel genuinely bad for my decisions.

    Planescape: Torment is another game where the evil path actually feels interesting and just as satisfying as the good one. The Fallout games come to mind as well, with the exception of Fallout 3.

    I tried NWN2 a while ago but the controls and camera are horrible, sadly.

    Interesting but ultimately useless reward; the mini-cutscene did give me a warm fuzzy feeling so overall I'm happy I did it.

    That and my OCD is appeased, for now.
    Brotherhood let's you buy map markers for feathers later in the storyline. Genius really, much more satisfying hoovering the map clean.

    Take my advise and stop it, the end reward is not worth it. :(

    I keep hearing how MotB is a modern Torment, but every time I want to play it the completionist inside me reaches for vanilla Neverwinter Nights 2 instead.

    And then I decide that reading all 6000 Dilbert strips again is a better use of my time.

    I have that exact same problem. It's also why I haven't managed to play Baldur's Gate 2 in about five years - BG 1 is a damn sleeping pill.

    So has anyone else placed Kerbal Space Program? I downloaded the demo and was instantly hooked. Now I have that pang of regret that I should really buy it, but don't know if I really want to because it's one of those games I can see myself playing for a few hours one session and then never touching it again.
    Powered by Steam. And biscuits. I'm also a twit and dabble in creative writing.

    I guess I filter out proudly-announced idiocy.

    Some recent adventures. Literally - I've been in a sudden adventure gaming mood and have been clearing said part of my backlog.

    Syberia. Lovely atmosphere, fascinating locales, interesting story that managed to get me really interested in the central 'mystery'. Buttttt.... weak puzzles, horrendous amounts of backtracking and an inane main character with equally inane circle of family and friends who keep interrupting the game with their incredibly dreary phone calls. Not exactly a great adventure game experience but the positive points were positive enough to make me feel like playing the game through. Unsure if I'll ever get around the second part - I may have liked the chase for Voralberg but I really don't know if I care enough to actually see what the story offers afterwards. Pretty and interesting, but average.

    Jolly Rover. Indie adventure game that came along with some random bundle or another. I'm glad it did, actually. It's nothing groundbreaking and it won't offer any challenge to a seasoned adventure gamer, but it's got such a wonderfully innocent and adorable feel-good vibe. It's just a fun little adventure that always keeps a smile on its face and has enough personality of its own (even if in its core it's basically Monkey Island but with dogs) to keep the player enjoying the game. A positive surprise. Might not return to it again, but I'm glad I played it and would recommend it to adventure game fans as long as they're clear of the caveat that it's nothing that will test their braincells to their limits.

    No idea where I'm headed next in my grand and completely random ADHD-esque adventures.
    Give me steam and how you feel to make it real.

    I think you're supposed to be directing that at me, and instead you seem to have insulted Mohorvicic. Or maybe that was your intention and you have some beef with him that I'm not aware of.

    Ah who cares, both mine and Mohorvicic's comments are fine, so stop being such a "zomg he doesn't like the games I like!" prick.

    Seconded entirely. With MotB Obsidian allowed you to be the type of manipulative, despicable, evil sociopath that they do so well. Seriously, the complete evil way of playing this is the thing of legends as that LP can show you. I've never been able to bring myself to be that much of a dick in a virtual world.

    And you really don't lose much by not having played NWN2 first. There are a couple of throwbacks in the plot and a few conversation options which reference events in the first game, but otherwise that's it. You can even console your way up to level 20 when starting MotB so you aren't slightly disadvantaged (new MotB character start at level 18 I think) .

    If you think that "I want to play x but I feel compelled to do y first, and I don't want to do y, so I won't do x" is fine, you need to get a grip. Both of you are guilty.

    I don't think something like that is good or bad, it just IS. I like to play games in order, what's wrong with that? I paid for them. BG 2 is such a vast improvement it makes the first game difficult to go back through.

    Buying the last seven seasons of Scrubs just to complete a collection - now that would be wrong.
