Occasionally I download a wackjob free indie game on the recommendation of RPS, and then I completely forget to play it until about a week afterward, at which point I start to wonder what that .exe is doing in my games folder. So today I played Will You Ever Return, having no recollection of it, which is the absolute best way to play the weirdest stuff.
Replaying Dishonoured, using a kill-them-all approach. I don't notice a huge difference in enemy quantity, but some dialogue is recognising my murderous ways. Using all the offensive spells is good fun too.
Rrrrgh. Running out of filters in Metro 2033 is infuriating, especially when I reload the checkpoint and it turns out that filters on corpses I already collected once can no longer be picked up. This game really needs some good old console commands, but those are nowhere to be found. Not even enabling the console itself works.
Oh, and ambient chatter from the guards is puns and swearing.
Went through a load more from the Humble Bundle 6.
Wizorb - nope.
Shatter - "Eh, it looks nice I suppose." *shrug*
SPAZ - nope.
Gratuitous Space Battles - "What's happening?" Eeeeeeenope.
Dustforce - "Hey, this is pretty co...no, doesn't feel as tight as Super Meat Boy." I'll probably complete this at some point though.
Had a couple of breakthroughs in Vessel though and completed the Factory. I just don't think I'm built for these types of puzzle games, but I'm going to push on. I feel compelled to complete it now.
I've not yet touched Jamestown or Rochard.
Jamestown is awesome, Rochard is mediocre, and the thing to keep in mind with Dustforce is that it was designed for keyboards, so you only have 4 directions, binary movement etc. The game is designed around that, so it works great, but it's a very important distinction from "plug in a gamepad, loser" SMB.
BLOPS2 online. I guess this is what MW fans felt like when they got MW2. The only tolerable thing is FFA with SMGs and I got bored of that after 5 hours.
BLOPS is one of the few games I liked online but this is rubbish. The campaign is awesome so I don't regret the purchase. Zombies is useless to me.
Black Ops 2 at last!It cannot be denied that this one will be one of the top 5 contenders for theGame of the Year.
A prequel or asequel of any movie or game needs to have sufficient innovations to avoidplodding along the path of monotony. On one hand, it also has to provide enoughrelation and connection to the previous installment. This seems to the strengthof Treyarch in their Black Ops series.
Black Ops 2 allowsit to carry the game by allowing them to test their judgment anddecision-making skills. This I found to be most interesting in this franchise.Of course the game also lets me develop (in game sense) my presence of mind aswell as leadership capability. Aseveryone knows by now, the game allows different endings, and I'm yet to tryeach of the choices. This gives this game more improved replayability factorlacking in previous installments of Modern Warfare series and original Blackops. While not meant to be a spoiler, the game gives a chance to players topractice leadership skills to stir sense of responsibility among team members.While not big, such innovation is a very good innovation indeed.
The theatricalpresentation of the game is simply awesome. I think this is one of the mostdiscussed aspects of the game review I read. Enhanced versatility ofthe camera, meta-data, one button editing, among others are just some of theterrific features in Black Ops 2.
In general, thisgame is easily the best among its rivals today. And there seems to be nothingcloser to it now, not even Halo 4.
If you're talking about Animal Crossing however, there's no cure. Aside from suiciding your farm and letting the weeds and spiders get everywhere.

Heh, I instinctically read it as Arkham City. It seemed a bit strange though..
If my memory serves me right, it should be Animal Crossing.
I'm currently trying to not start playing Rome: TW, while not wanting to play anything else and listening to The History of Rome podcast. It's an excercise in restraint.
Victor Coste: My kids never draw anything for me, or write either.
SEAL: They don't write 'cause you can't read!
Victor Coste: Laugh it up, first thing I'm gonna do when I get back...
Sam Fisher: What, you're gonna to go to kindergarten?
SEAL: I think they have entrance exams now. I don't think Vic is gonna be able to get in, Sam!
Some of the puns the guards crack about you missing the matinee in a cinema [bleh.. spoilers i guess?]you crash a helicopter into [/bleh.. spoilers i guess?]through actually made me stop playing because I laughed so hard I hurt.That and a metric unit of F-Bombs but I don't mind that unless the game is otherwise kid friendly, conviction isn't.
