    Got FTL on the Steam weekend sale, and managed to get about 40 minutes into it yesterday. I already died about 5 times. Fucking solar flares.

    also it was ages since i played GTA3 and did not realize that Catalina and Claude where from that game. lolz. Still I liked Tommy way more than Claude.
    SA was always my favourite of the GTAs. GTA4 runs a lot better now than it did on release, however if you've never played it before I must warn you a lot of the fun from previous GTAs was thrown out for a grittier, more realistic story and gameplay. There's no taxi missions, no fire truck missions, no insane stunt bonuses, collectables have been replaced by shooting pigeons and there's almost no whacky or out there missions to be played. That's not to say it's not good, it's a good game. But it's nothing really like SA or Vice.

    If you can't get away fast, just open all doors and only keep manned station pressurized. If your oxygen system gets damaged you'll be in trouble, but if fire spreads you'll be in trouble anyway. Also, get blast doors.

    no stunt bonuses would indeed be deeply missed. one of the best moments in gta.


    i am aware of the grittiness... I just spent 70 hours in funky world. wouldn't min. but amd3200, 2gb of ddr1 and 4850 512MB is not capable of handling the game i think :(

    I just finished Dishonored, and this video sums up pretty much sums up my opinion on the game. (note1: I'm not the author of the video. note2: It's quite spoilery).

    It's weird to think that San Andreas was made by a bunch of Scots considering it's the most black American game out there.

    Loved it though. CJ came with the most awesome stuff.

    Starting my third Far Cry 3 play through soon, I can't believe it's real to be honest, been waiting in anticipation since the second blew me away.

    An odd one, I know judging your affection of a game against its metascore is a recipe for disaster but Dead Rising 2 is surprisingly better than the score it has. Its got IMO GTA4 level graphics, great mechanics, a daft as rabbits story and an amazing sense of ownership.

    I know a level of detail about the malls and parks now that I don't know even know about my own local shopping centre, and that's so enjoyable, grab a builders hat while I'm escorting someone, make a beerhat later, I'll safe that axe that's half damaged, add it to a sledge hammer to make a 'defiler'.

    So, here I am, putting down a gun and a sword because a carton of juice and a fire axe are more useful when I realise I am learning the game without ever being trapped into a mission I cant refuse or magically having all my weapons taken off me. at no point do I need to wait for an AI to tell me we have "cleared an area", and if someone suggests a mission I can just refuse, and go strap a machine gun to a motorbike and try and reach the next milestone in zombie kills, go explore some of the corners my travels have never taken me to or go hunt down those 'Psychopaths' I was ignoring for more pressing matters.

    I gave up on DR2 after an hour or so because of the atrocious save system.

    Dead Rising is like Garth Ennis comics. The first game you play/series you read is wonderful, fresh, and entertaining. The second one starts to wear a bit, but is still fun. Beyond that, you realize that every game is exactly the same (and that every Ennis comic is the same basic set of gags to cover for the lightly veiled attacks at acceptable targets).

    If you want me on either service, I suggest PMing me here first to let me know who you are.

    It's probably just incompatible with my play style. I get distracted by the shinies and spend hours running around doing various shit only to die and then be told all that transpired since my last save only happened in my head. Of course that's true, but being reminded of that is depressing.

    well... single core 7 year old cpu is worthless when it comes to gtaIV. GPU manages to handle it alright but cpu is the bottleneck.
    shame. but i do have 150+ of other games i had never played to keep me occupied.

    Except for punisher MAX, don't forget Punisher MAX.
