Whew! My second Terror Mission in this game done. Loads of Chryssalids coming out by threes at a time ain't fun but god it's intense. I expected a Cyberdisk to come and fuck up my squad but I got lucky this time I guess. Supports are awesome
Bah! My blog is fulla bollox! What? Don't believe me?Here! Just look at it!
Kentucky Route Zero
Enjoyed it more than I thought I would, it's a weird beast; it's a bit of a text adventure and a bit adventure game and has a really nice atmosphere and looks really neat.
The game ends at Chapter V but I heard that it goes up to X if you start exploring and discovering.
Dawn of War II
Decided to start over and play through them all in case DoWIII comes out someday.
Last week (too my horror!) my internets were down, with only brief period of connectivity (which I used to get absolutely Curb stomped in the Frozen Synapse League here on RPS).
So I HAD to play a select collection of offline games without an obtuse reward system because; achievements.
As the outside is looking particularly picturesque with a few inches of icy death hugging the ground I decided to finish Syberia 2.
The final few scenes seemed a bit abrupt compared the meandering 2nd act I had got used to. But I feel the game was better for it, I was getting oh so tired of backtracking, and relished the last few puzzles which were absolutely superb. I wasn’t sure if the game had finally got into a groove that worked for it, or whether I had finally become accustomed to the way the puzzle designers thought, but the last few puzzles were the right difficultly level and contextual.
I hear theirs a 3rd game on the way, not sure where they’re going to go from the end, the adventure seemed pretty much done from Kate’s perspective. Wouldn’t mind playing as the PI that was following her though.
Being in the Pointy, clicky mood I installed PISS, which had been sitting in my games directory for a while and spent 3 hours absolutely glued to the screen. Its one of the most engrossing pieces of interactive fiction I’ve played in a long time. Its got real Planescape vibes in setting, narrative and art, and although there isn’t really much ‘game’ to the play, just unlocking tidbits of background and story from various characters and objects is reward enough in itself to keep on going. Got a CTD in part 2 though, but I’ve contacted Ben and it’s not a game breaking glitch (clicking on a rock behind a character) apparently I’d found piece of content that had been completely cut!
As PISS had crashed and my urge to point and click had not been satisfied, I scoured my archives and found a game called Lume, a p&c puzzle game that was completely constructed using a paper and card set and camera movements. Its really charming, short and well put together. But seriously, f*** the puzzle to get into the cupboard under the sink. F*** it to space.
I dabbled in Temple of Elemental Evil for a few hours, just wandering around Hommet. It really is still a pretty game.
I also completed the main Campaign of Super Crossfire. Now I’ve unlocked the dark campaign. Frikkin love this game.
Now I have internet again! So I’ve been picking away at Avadon; I’ve currently just finished Nathaniel’s companion quest., and playing Borderlands 2: Torgues Campaign ("Tom4j" steam id if you fancy a game).

So... is PISS the actual name or just an unfortunate acronym? It doesn't ring any bells.
I just added for about 8 hours of trance music in to my gta music folder,then i'll for a nice relaxing ride through the city of liberty,jeej. Wish the highway were much longer.
... I take the lives of a few to protect the lives of many. I commit acts of war to preserve the greater peace. I take no joy in killing, but make no mistake; I'll do what needs to be done. Because it's my job. It's my duty. My name is Sam Fisher, and I am a Splinter Cell.
Where might one find it? I tried Steam, Gamersgate and GOG without results. I then googled "piss game" and found what one might expect from that search. Desura had an image that said something about Summerbatch games, but didn't have the game from what I can tell.
EDIT: Then I googled "summerbatch piss". I do believe that's it.
EDIT 2: However, Summerbatch isn't available. Where is the game?

Borderlands 2 in multi, working our way through True Vault Hunter and still having a great time.
XCOM: EU in single, still feeling my way along. Am I right that I shouldn't be researching constantly? I feel like I've got far more tech than I've got money with which to actually build that tech. I've been blowing past whole tiers of weaponry without ever getting a chance to make one and field it. For reference I'm playing on normal (at least until I stop misunderstanding the mechanics!) and have very little experience with the original game.

Buying games you aren't going to play is a waste of money (no matter how cheap they are). Forcing yourself to play games you wish you hadn't bought is a waste of time. Both are best avoided.
