Between sessions of Witcher (think I'm close to the end), I'm beating my head up against the brick walls of Binding of Isaac and Bit.Trip Runner. I feel like the Little Engine That Could If It Wasn't For Constantly Getting Kicked In The Balls.

Just started Chaos Theory. God I forgot how much the graphics improved over the previous two!

I'm gonna have to eat my hat and admit Terraria, despite the sucky jump, is a nice enough game (some choices I like better than Minecraft's), provided 20-30 minutes are invested on a Starting Out How-To before you actually start playing it - trying to plunge in on a first try was Not a Good Idea.
(I do wonder how the hell console players deal with that?)
~10 hours in, I am sort of stuck with seemingly nothing left to explore, except some corruption zones I can't get past or dig through because I don't have the nightmarish pick-axe(?), or try to find some floating islands... the world I'm in is a small one but the guide assured that was plenty big for a beginner.
I still have to start tinkering with potions, need more metals.

Insanely small sample data/annecdotal evidence suggests the console folk are better at accepting and learning games with weak guidance (if only based on how many PC gamers kept trying to do the Catacombs before Undead Parish).
And yeah, I really enjoy Terraria, but I definitely run out of steam after a few hours. The dev is considering/planning another "final" patch though, so hopefully the new content will help with that.

I finished The Longest Journey yesterday, then I threw in I Am Alive which turned out to be really disappointing. The local WIT says it all, really. The combat system seems pretty interesting on paper but the execution is all sorts of terrible. While it is never offensively bad, it has the stench of a game that had been halfway done, canned and then given to a completely different developer who just didn't give a damn and only cared to somehow turn into some sort of playable mass.
Once again it seems that games are mostly produced like sausages.

Mucking about with the BG Enchanced Edition and seriously thinking of breaking out my BG Collection and playing through the whole thing. With some mods of course. Can anyone confirm if this guide by Destructoid is reliable?

Just keep in mind it is outdated, so make sure you grab the latest versions of all utilities.

Seems that way to me. It was a bit more complex and fragmented when I did it and obviously, the more mods you want to use, the more prone to complications it becomes. Also, Sword Coast Stratagems mod.

My recollections of Baldur's Gate don't include anything about it being tricky but I'm playing on the easiest setting now and some of the areas are murderously hard. I also forgot the wonders of instant death in its numerous forms. I have no idea how I managed this when it came out at normal difficulty; some of this stuff is plain bullshit. Some highlights:
Level drained to death by a pack of vampires before the rest of the party could walk in the door
Having 5 party members petrified by a single greater basilisk
End boss of BG1 having a level based instant kill that's higher than the level most classes reach in BG1
The Underdark. Fuck you beholders, fuck you mind flayers.
The many, many, many holds, stuns, charms, confusions and fears that will incapacitate your entire party instantly
A lich who chain casts imprisonment with no resistance or saving throw. I still don't know how you're meant to do that.
I'm enjoying it, but I'm sure glad nobody makes D&D games now.

I didn't make it past step 1 *chuckle* My disc version of BG refuses to even load up.
Ok, I got it to load up and now there's a problem with 3D acceleration, and I'm not sure the mod needed to correct it is compa- oh piss on this.
The Enchanced Edition is worth every penny.
