    Still Playing Fallout New Vegas: The story is nice and I love the NPC, just met Cass, nice 'clin d'oeil' to Fallout 2. I still think that the environments are weak and the engine dated but I can live with that. But got, could they make a less intuitive inventory ? how can people complain about Skyrim's...

    Just finished the Darkness on my Xbox, needed to finish it so I could start the second one on PC. I hadn't played on a console for a while and I must say it felt pretty good to play on a larger screen with a controler for a while. Do anyone knows if it's possible to play with a wireless xbox controler on pc ?

    I started the Darkness 2, to early to say anything about it but it started strong, more action packed but faithful to the first one (lots of talking, loading cutscene, the metro, the humor...)

    It is, but you'll need an adapter to hook it up to the PC. (That link should be useful if you're in the UK)

    I just played through Hexen (using zdoom), which was very good and I hoped I could start playing Sleeping Dawgs but for some reason it's only available here on Friday while the USians can already play. Not cool.
    Oh well, I guess that gives me some time to play through the Hexen expansion.

    Will all make navigating the inventory and text interfaces easier. They don't do anything drastic so it's fine for a first time playthrough.

    You'll see some more intricate environment design in the DLCs, being that they are smaller and self-contained.

    Recently started playing the Smite beta, which is my first encounter with a moba/dota game. The difference is that you're directly controlling your character in Smite (3rd person view, WASD controls), which draws you into the game immediately. Besides that it's almost similar to LoL/Dota2 when it comes to the mechanics, but I'm just more comfortable with WASD controls.

    Also busy with a month's old BG2 game and returned to Vanguard: Saga of Heroes for a bit, as it just went F2P. It's not going to be a long stay though, as the game is still insanely laggy and has the same graphical glitches as it did in 2007. Sigh, the wasted potential on this one :(

    Seriously, it could've been much, much better with a few tweaks. I was hoping it would be more like Two Thrones but it lacked a bit of the scope of that game.
    Yes, It has some nice ideas, like the water thing. But the story is just uninspired. The combat too simplified and the unlocks thing just silly. PoP is about getting from one place to another while jumping, running and doing crazy acrobatic stuff. Thing is here getting from A to B is just a matter of timing the movements right. You don't get the satisfaction of figuring how to get through it, and that is it's biggest sin for me.

    However, while that is much better than no info at all, it would be perfect if it just gave you the general area, like some "locate the target" missions, and you had to find the feather in that limited area.

    Finding them in AC2 was mostly annoying, but it did let me to apreciate the area design a lot more!



    The game end reward might not be, but keepign my OCD satisfied is a reward in itself. Plus, if it's marked on the map, it's trivial.

    I know what you mean, I collected everything besides those feathers as well, they weren't on my map or at least I don't remember they were. Thing is I did the feathers as last and since collecting all of them gives you a cape that makes you public enemy #1 it was pretty useless post-game.

    I also played it on PC so no trophies for me.

    The feathers thing in Brotherhood is a bit of a red herring. The feathers experience of AC2 is replaced by the Borgia flags in Brotherhood. Still the best of the AC games however and the Leanardo machines side quests are an excellent laugh.

    You can buy map markers from art shops for the regions flags too.

    Finished Saints Row 3 and it was great fun. Never played SR1 or 2 but really looking forward to SR4 now.

    Looking through my game library at the stuff I've never played and noticed Overlord 2. I'd completely forgotten that I'd bought that. Anyone played it? Any good? It's either that or Terraria which I've also never played.

    Turns out the Hexen "expansion" is absolutely awful. No new weapons, no new enemies, no new environments. In fact, they even reused puzzles! All they did was turning up the difficulty up to 11. Not gonna bother beyond the first third.

    Splinter Cell Conviction isn't really grabbing me as much. Proper stealth games (yes I know Conviction is very watered down from Chaos Theory) fascinate me for a level or two but then lose me in the repitition. I prefer stealth in things like Deus Ex, Alpha Protocol or even Skyrim - games where it is only one option of several.
    Don't get me wrong, Conviction is a good game and I'm going to try and finish it. It's just not going to be played exclusively.

    Hence me starting a new game of Sins of a Solar Empire Trinity. Quickly made a nice 2 Star / 60 planets map and am doing a 3v3 with some AI varying between Normal and Hard difficulty. I love how quickly the game lets you set something like that up - the map creator is a dream to use. Only about 3 hours into it but I'm already hooked again. And now that everyone seems to have inter-star travel unlocked things are going to get very interesting.

    I played it and liked it, but not as much as the first one. Also, I played them on Xbox 360 (before I emerged from the primordial ooze into PC gaming), so I'm not sure how well the PC versions play.

    Tower Wars - what on earth was I thinking. Online play is dull and slow. Matchmaking seems to be random or i'm just completely crap at it. Defender's Quest, Gratuitous Tank Battles and Immortal Defense still rule!
    Guardians of Graxia (plus all DLC) - this seems actually pretty good so far. Complex card-based wargame - lots of variables - kinda like Etherlords meets Summoner Wars.
    Hero Academy - hoping this is something I can play with the missus until Torchlight II comes out. Seems simple but fun.

    Played through part one of the walking dead game. Have to say I quite enjoyed it (I did rewind chapters a few times to try out different things) and I'm looking forward to seeing how things play out in part 2, although I might play an alternative version of Part one as I'm interested to see how differently things could go. Thumbs up so far.

    The mouse feels surprisingly natural for controlling minions.

    Deniable Ops is a fun time, better than the main campaign.

    The pad controls are spot on. Mind.

    Just started with Jagged Alliance: Back in Action, and I'm mildly suprised to find it quite fun to play. I've played JA1, Deadly Games and JA2 (and 1.13) to tiny bits, but somehow JA:BiA does things right as well. The graphics, sounds (with the big exception of the voices) and atmosphere are all nice, and the game is a bit quicker now, which is not necessarily a bad thing.

    However, it's not all sunshine and rainbows; the voiceacting (and portraits) are both a whole lot more "flat and dull". And the green glowing markers where I can blow up walls or find items are a very bad design choice. And why the hell can't I create my own Merc? (or can I?) And (not sure) do I only payed my hired Mercs only once?? Then why do I need income anyway? Or is this game suddenly impossible with just 2 or 3 Mercs? (JA2 sure wasn't). But.... I'm still happy to play this game, and somewhat excited how the other towns are modelled and if all old characters are there.

    I've also played a very short bit of Escape Goat, but it was too little to form an opinion just yet. Can't say things about graphics as well, since it's not such a game, is it? Did love the cute little rat addition, and the ability to teleport to him with the Magic Hat.

    Last but not least I've finally continued my play of Fallout New Vegas, but I'm starting to get annoyed by the sheer ammount of assasins the Legion sents after me, that I can hardly defeat each time. And even worse, they kill my companions too quickly. Luckily, with the Animal Friend perk, I usually lure the assasins to a nice group of critter to deal with them. Especially geckos are chewing them up nicely. But I do like some way of stopping them more permanently. Any suggestions?
