    Pull that back in your ass where you got it... Weapons have the right feel (at least Vanu ones) Proning isn't needed, leaning isn't needed.

    I can deal with no lean (I almost never use it any fps) but not being able to prone just feels wrong now. Borderlands 2 is the only fps where I didn't miss it because all the other shootybangexplosion mechanics are refined down to the millimetre.

    Is Planetside 2 open beta/released now? Gonna sign up if it is.

    Edit: nvm, just read the article! HI-HO SILVER!

    yeah. Good thing I enjoy taking my time. That mission took about three hours and I have had others which took closer to six hours. I can't imagine they're meant to be played like I do (spending an hour micromanaging a single sniper, for example. Or two hours flattening everything with artillery), but I can't see how else to win; your forces are way too weak for more aggressive tactics. Wonder how other people played them.

    Beaten Faerie Solitaire. It's too long for its own good, I'd rather recommend Runespell Overture, it's more varied, has an original, well-written story, amazing production values including songs from The Guild's orchestral score, honey for my ears.

    Picked up LIMBO and couldn't stop playing it despite all the deaths: the controls just feel so smooth and natural - it's a joy to play (guess it will be until the infamous level that drives everybody crazy). The demo didn't really do it justice.

    It got a lot of average reviews with the main point being false freedom and it's more of the same, so I was a bit worried. What's your opinion of it?

    Hoping to wrap up Alice: Madness Returns this weekend, Walking Dead Ep. 5, and the new Torgue Borderlands 2 DLC. If time permits, I may give Planetside 2 a shot.

    On another note, I've been gifted a DOTA 2 key and I want to check out the game, but I've also heard that newbies can really ruin the game for others if they don't know what they are doing. I'm new to MOBAs in general, so anyone have recommendations on how I can knowledge-up before starting to lessen the impact of my newbiness?

    well i helped a rooster hat wearing penguin with lipstick steal his diamond back and then george washington fought two of the four horseman of the apocalypse with the sword i gave him while i learned to never ever give wings to a shark and then i tried to cheer up an orphan with a juggler but she just ended up riding on top of his head while zombies invaded and then i realized that of course it wasn't lipstick at all that the penguin had it was a jetpack.

    and now i have a jetpack.

    Civ5 - I finally caved and bought the expansion last week after not having played since the launch of CK2. Loving it.

    Well, Waking Mars is lovely, fascinating and engrossing. I'd like more games like this.

    Play some bot matches to get the feel of things and how everything works, and when you start winning and feel comfortable with the characters you can go do versus matches. That's what I did with League of Legends anyways.

    I've found Dota2 to be a bit of a different beast from LoL in that the bot matches in Dota2 are harder than playing against humans. If I'm remembering correctly theres an option to watch matches in dota2, which I think is the best way to learn. Otherwise yeah, just play against bots (because while harder, the games don't count for anything I think.)

    playing against bots in dota2 will make you pretty decent. their timing is perfect and their coordination is impeccable. if you can figure out how not to get caught out of position, last hit, etc., against bots, you'll do just fine against humans.

    The bots are outstanding. Effective way to learn the mechanisms and other basic elements. Youtube a few beginner's videos and proceed. Alternatively, grab some random replays within the client and see how it works for yourself. :)

    Assassins Creed 3. Just watched the intro, they really have gone batshit crazy with the story (I only played the first one in the series so far).

    Scribblenauts looks beautiful on a big, shiny PC monitor. Inputting words via keyboard is quicker than tapping them out with a stylus on a Nintendo touch screen, but I found the overall experience of switching back and forth between that and a mouse (as to determine exactly where I wanted to drop my spawned items) a little bit cumbersome. With time I could see myself becoming well adjusted to this scheme, though, and unlike the Wii U version, all of the action takes place on one screen, making the PC a wonderful platform to enjoy the best Scribblenauts yet.

    Why would someone uncomfortable switching between mouse and keyboard be reviewing PC games?

    I started playing Penumbra for the second time today, and made it a a fair bit further than I did on my last attempt... But then I did something shameful. There's a part that blatantly tells you "make sure the dogs don't sneak up on you", giving very clear forewarning of what was about to happen. I dragged a barrel in front of the door, judging by my laborious movements that it would be heavy enough keep the door shut... And had my heartbeat jolted to double its resting rate when the dog jumped me not 10 seconds later when I turned my back. As per usual when a game does this to me, I immediately quit to desktop.

    Prior to that, I was entertained by this fellow's delightful journal:

    Later, still not brave enough to face the dog I had now been twice warned about, I tried to play Far Cry 2 but the obnoxious haze and a prompt CTD informed me that I didn't actually want to.
