Just bought Hitman: BM on Gamersgate (on sale ATM) and will get to it as soon as I am done with TL2.
In TL2, I am somewhere in act 3 (I don't really follow the story) and am starting to get a bit tired from it, so it's a good idea to take a break before starting a new character (thinking about berserker. Noe playing embermage).
Rage, finally. It's alright, but it doesn't grab me as much as the old id Software games did, nor is it interesting enough for me to play more than one or two missions during a single session. It's pretty much a huge sandcastle of wasted opportunities and reloading textures.
- If the sound of Samuel Barber's "Adagio For Strings" makes you think of Kharak burning instead of the Vietnamese jungle, most of your youth happened during the 90s. -
I'm in love with Borderlands 2. It's one of my games of the year, for sure.
I thought the first game was good (enough for me to be interested in buying the sequel at any rate) but I seem to be enjoying the the second outing a lot more, for some reason.
Perhaps it's because I'm playing it in co-op instead of singleplayer, but on the the whole the game seems ... bigger, than the first in almost every way. There's some good writing too; gotta love a game that can make me laugh.
I'm playing Sleeping Dogs.. great game so far, much better than any GTA was.
Started playing HOMM6 again (which I finally managed to get working, though the lastest patch of course broke stuff again as well.... ). I'm in the second Necropolis map (Towards the within), but had to start over since *SPOILERS* I had too little units left to "kill" the Haven hero (Conrad?). Which is a major annoyance, but the level is fun enough to play again. Apart from the flaws and bugs, the game is really entertaining to my surprise. But U-play still manages to frustrate me immensely...!
My mate also bought me Torchlight 2 which was very nice of him. I played an outlander in the beta with pistols, so decided to go melee in the realse, and found it really uncomfortable. So i might go back to being a ranged specialist, hows the embermage?(I played the Alchemeist (summoner) in the previous game).
From my last post i've only really played Syberia 2 any amount; not much to write home about really. I'm enjoying it very much, but its definately the "difficult second game", it plods on but it lacks the character progression Syberia one had (so far), still very pretty though.
As its October though i'm going to do my yearly tradition of digging out spooky games, and the line up looks like this;
Finish Lone survivior - currently outside
Finish Cthulu saves the world - I have a dragon and i think i'm really near then end with this one, I'm not sure, its been ages since i last played this
Finish Zombie Containment puzzler - I played this for an hour one night and found myself REALLY into it, so i think it deserves a second look
Start Blackwell: Deception
Try my best to actually finish Amnesia - I'm just about to descend the lift and the prospect terrifys me.
Although tbf, i'll probaley end up playing Borderland 2... alot of Borderlands 2.
But like TomxJ, this is all contingent on being able to pull myself away from B2, which has not been a very successful endeavor so far...
Spent a few hours playing grid. Locked myself to the inside the car view and all assists off (except rewind). I honestly feel like the drift events are really fun, using the 2nd analogue to look out the windows so I can see where I am going.
Drift events are fun? What's happening to me brah?
I attempted to play 3079, for a little while. What a very strange game.
If you go with SOC, just make sure to mod it with Complete first - it's keeps the spirit and mechanics of the game perfectly intact, and I've played the vanilla game enough to know that you lose nothing (and gain so much) by starting modded - and remember to take your time. There really is no rush. The landscape is the main character. It might be the only game I've ever played where sidequests and random encounters are at least as enjoyable as the main plotline.
I'm still mainly playing FTL. even with the occasional intersection of kicking ass with my Embermage in Torchlight, I don't think any game has had such a gleefully tight grip on me in at least a year as FTL has.
