    I was going to sit down and do some Dark Souls, but sadly still not in the right frame of mind. So instead I'll go start Spec Ops while I wait for my GW2 key.

    Finished Sleeping Dogs yesterday which I heartedly recommend, it's not perfect but it's a pretty solid and enjoyable open world game and the combat, especially the environmental attacks are pretty good.

    Presently playing Dark souls which is every bit as hard as Coffin Nails as I'd been lead to believe, though extremely satisfying when it goes to plan. I can't say I'm particularly great at it, though I've managed to snaffle some nice armour and a decent sword through following some guides. It's taken a while for the realisation to sink in that the game actively encourages you to grind areas in order to progress, and that it's really about fighting your way through to when your in danger and then heading back with your souls, camping down and rinse repeating until the danger seems a trifle. I probably could of saved myself a lot of lost souls if I'd gotten my head around that aspect much earlier on tbh.

    Oh fuck you Grobnar Gnomehands. It was bad enough you led me on a wild chase for imaginary creatures, but now you even manage to screw me by NOT being in my party? How the hell am I supposed to know this little shit has to be around during a visit to Ember's well, when I picked up the other two golem pieces without any such stipulations? I've almost completed Neverwinter Nights 2 twice and I still haven't gotten to use the golem yet.

    Even if haven't finished Splinter Cell: Conviction yet, I just started playing Spec Ops: The Line. It's nice, and the story is amazing, so... Yay! I still prefer Binary Domain as a TPS, but, well... It's something. The cover system is quite annoying, though, and I haven't had any troubles with difficulty ("suicidal mission") until the 6th chapter, where I'm stuck right now. I've decided I'll try again tomorrow. Also, I should be able to target enemies for my squad members, shouldn't I? I could only target the one from the tutorial, don't know why...

    BTW, I've also been playing a bit of The Settlers 7, and, even if I probably suck at it, I absolutely love it. Even if the DRM has already given me trouble twice. >.<

    EDIT: Well, just finished Conviction. If you don't look at it as a Splinter Cell game, it's pretty nice. A bit too easy, maybe.

    There was somthing funny about the squad targetting, I think it was only available/worked if you were taking enough fire for the game to register you as "being supressed", otherwise you couldn't give the squad orders.

    But it is weird... Right at the beginning of the 2nd chapter the game tells (or sugests) me to target one of the first two enemies appearing, even before they discover me. Of course, I can't. Thanks for the help, anyway. ^^

    And, BTW... Even if it has some problems, I like the game, so far.

    Been playing Gothic 2. I really like it a lot. It's quest design is a bit....fussy (for example, you kind of have to do things in a very specific order or you break the game, even though it's open world), but otherwise I think it's combat is much improved over Gothic 1.

    Been having a strange hankering to dig out my KOTOR1 discs and replay the KOTOR series now that KOTOR 2 is finished. I might do that next (or if I get distracted during Gothic).

    I'd quite like to hear peoples thoughts on Spec-Ops: The Line when they've completed it. It didn't seem to have much appeal around these parts, so I haven't really had a chance to have a decent discussion about it.

    Yeah Splintercell fanboys were pretty mad about it, I loved it and can't wait for black list.

    It was nice. It'll make people boo and hiss by making them unable to go ghosting around levels but I kinda like playing predator. Makes me feel badass and I like that. The Deniable-Ops mode is better, tho.

    I never really seen any trailers of Blacklist but I'm assuming it's like Conviction.

    Even worse. (Yes, such a thing turns out to be possible.)

    I tried to play some company of heroes.

    since im connected to the net it forces me to sign up for their crap. i won't do that. there is workaround but really killed my interest in playing this game.

    Assembling the Golem and finding Guyven of the Road are the two most annoying sidequests in NwN 2. Ususually the game is pretty good about at least hinting at obscure secrets, but in these two cases you either need to be lucky or use a guide. It's a shame, because both quests are interesting and have neat payoffs.

    I recently replayed Bioshock 2 to see if it holds up as well as I remember. I can safely state it does. There are a few things about the game that bother me, but I'm willing to forgive it for them because the last third is just so incredibly fun to play. One of the best FPS titles in recent years and superior to its predecessor in every way.

    Have no problem finding Guyven because my fingers are glued to the tab key which I use to highlight all objects and persons of interest.

    I didn't use it during my first game and missed several ore veins. :/

    Having a good bit of fun with Dungeon Siege III. Nice to see that Obsidian can put together a decent engine and a nice gameplay system. Haven't had a single crash or bug or fps-drop yet and, while the M+KB controls are a clusterfuck, it feels nice to play with a gamepad.

    There are some issues, such as the lack of feedback in combat or the fact that I never feel like my item choice matters much - my playstyle with Katarina remains unchanged no matter if I employ items which give more Will or more Agility or more Attack etc. But ultimately I look forward to replaying this with all the characters.

    I know people are angry it wasn't like DS1 but honestly, much as I enjoyed that game, DS1 (and Aranna) pretty much covers that kind of gameplay and provides many, many hours of it. Something new is appreciated, especially as I bounced right off DS2 (and only got about 2/3 through Aranna before getting tired).

    Just got a key for Firefall and started playing it. I love it so far, I had never played a MMOFPS before, and I must admit it's quite outstanding, specially being just a beta... ^^

    Quite right. I've been replaying it too. Wish the weapons had ANY oomph to them - if they did it would be just about perfect for me.
