    But yeah, of GTA4, LatD and BoGT, I liked BoGT the best, and mostly because these people had lives outside of shooting cops. (Plus, the protagonist lived in Northwood, the fictionalization of my neighborhood).

    Forgive me. Forgot to qualify. Decently by video game standards.

    Yes, that's it. Despite being able to relate to them or not, liking them or not, they felt like people, much more so than in any other GTA game to date.

    Fair enough. I picked up the SVD, but left it in a stash once I cleared the laboratory because the G36 works pretty well enough at range.

    You're about 2/3 of the way through the game, if that helps; if you are where I think you are.
    The story. I get that context and it's well done at that, but when playing a game with a story, I do at least like to try and understand what the hell that story is. Perhaps it speaks of the game that I'm still playing it, or perhaps I'm so invested it would make little difference. Doesn't mean I'm not enjoying it though.

    I also had a look on GameFAQs because I wanted to check something regarding what I thought was a bug. The game really seems to pick up pace when you get a good gun early on. That sounds stupid, but once I got a gun that both 1) Hit people fairly accurately and 2) Did meaningful amounts of damage, I proceeded to march through fairly quickly, my biggest slow-downs being forgetting to auto-save and losing maybe 20-30 minutes of progress. Anyhow, I feel like I'm drawing close to the end of the game, if only due to Map Spoilers, whereby I'm progressively getting closer and closer to the top. Entered an interesting section whereby I was raiding Pripyat with some fellow STALKERs, but it seemed to bug up so I abandoned the session, for now.

    That's because bikes handle better in TLaD ;)

    Are you saying it's not an achievement?! Well, if that's the case, then I'd like your face to meet my wheelchair, good sir!

    I hope the high rent for it is worth it.

    Okay, I thought that was just my imagination that bikes handled better in the biker game :).

    Indeed. I wonder if the TLaD handling model is patched back into the main GTA4 campaign. That would be neat.

    It's not, or at least not as far as I can tell. Even after installing TLaD, Nico can't handle a bike at all.

    Saw this article the other day (can't remember where) about how GTA4 can be improved (depending on your mindset) by disabling the interface, ie. removing the minimap.
    Then the game becomes more immersive by necessity: you need to memorise landmarks and streets unless you're ok with constantly Escape-ing out to the map, the talking GPS devices in the higher-end cars become useful as anything, firefights get a lot more tense as it's hard to know where enemies are and if they're dead.

    There are of course a few times you'd have to turn it back on such as when you need to find a package or quest item or during some of the annoying chase missions. But it is something to consider if you have been finding the game lacking in certain ways.

    Yeah I read that too (on Kotaku.) I wanted to try it, but then I remembered the hell that was trying to run GTAIV on my comp.

    I'm running around on the unofficial RPS Minecraft server. Just uploaded an album of screenshots, actually.

    Somehow the Risen team managed to make an even worse combat system than Gothic 3. I keep getting my arse handed to me and I feel it is due to the controls. I keep spinning around wildly slashing at air and the enemy seems to teleport wildly around the place.

    *sigh*

    0% important, ass creed 2 has mandatory collection of codex pages, and maybe assassins seals, but I hungrily hunted them down so its hard.to be sure.

    Don't marathon it or you're likely to get bored. Not a lot of variety so it's best played a couple of hours / missions per day.

    Yes, one assassination per play session tops. Then go away from it for a day.

    Replaying Mass Effect 2 and for the life of me I can't figure out whether to play as Sentinel or Infiltrator.

    Also, going to try out Necrovision now.
