Felled the Belfry Gargoyles, Moonlight Butterfly, a black knight, Havel, the bridge dragon and Capra Demon today. Capra was definitely the worst of the lot, but once I figured out how to get through the door without dying instantly it wasn't so bad. That's probably enough Dark Souls for one weekend. It's definitely a lot easier than Demon's Souls so far, (the upswing in character power feels far more pronounced, for one thing) not that I'm complaining.

Completed Gateways! That was fun. It got really tricky toward the end, but I managed to do it without buying any solutions. I'm still missing 30 orbs from the 500, but I'm not interested in trudging around the levels again to collect them just for the sake of 100% completion. I can check this game off.
Gateways is basically what Quantum Conundrum should have been like, difficulty-wise. It got absolutely crazy with me walking on walls, using a mirror to redirect lasers that came from the past, while three other time-traveling clones are running around, shrinking themselves in order to push tiny buttons that you can't reach unless you drop through a gateway in the floor and emerge from the ceiling. It was glorious. I just wish there were more levels that required that kind of planning and thinking. I think there were only about three that presented a real multilayered challenge. I'd totally pay full price for this game if it had an advanced challenges map pack.

Hitman: Blood Money ate my save, and I don't feel like trekking through the tutorial level again, so I've started up Assassins Creed II. Plays quite a bit better than the first game so far, I must say.

Made a start on Brutal Legend of the Missing Punctuation. Enjoying it so far and having been warned of the RTS bits being a bit rubbish (and not really being a fan of RTS games anyway) I'm ready to just enjoy it for the style, atmosphere and story and not for the gameplay itself.

If you treat the whole thing otherwise as a 'trip through classic metal with some driving and hitting things' tho - you'll have a whale of a time - just be thankful you didn't spend £40 on it as many people had to !!

At the moment I seem to be playing games from 2011 that I'm only getting around to now.
Saw Battlefield 3 for ten euro on Origin recently, so I picked it up.
I was worried about all the unlocks and stuff meaning I would get stomped by all the vets, but I seem to be holding my own with the default rifles, getting a decent score in most games. It's a bit dumb that the medic class doesn't start off with a defib unit, but it doesn't take long to unlock it so can't complain too much.
The game feels very precise and polished, and the basic shooting is solid. My bullets always go where I want them to go and if I get killed, it's because someone else got the drop on me, or had slightly better reflexes. It doesn't feel like I'm being killed by guys just because they have a better gun than me, not yet anyway.
Also, what happened to all the scenery destruction from BC2? I haven't seen much at all so far in BF3. I always liked hearing the creaking supports of a battered house, and trying to scramble out before you get squashed by falling masonry.
Saint's Row : The Third has been sitting in my steam library for what seems like forever, but I started it up last week.
I like the little smart phone that you get to look at the map and missions and stuff, it feels very slick. Also, I love that the GPS directions actually pop up on your HUD, so you don't have to constantly be looking at the minimap. It should be a default feature in any game like this.
The shooting and driving feel much improved from Saint's Row 2, and performance is much better as well. Liking it so far.

Drugs are borderline mandatory if you want to go melee. Also, I always say explosives go very well with melee in FONV. Explosives are very versatile with bombs, grenades, mines, launchers and grenade rifles. They're too awkward to use, too prone to collateral damage and too heavy for primary weapons but you can handle all of those with a melee build.Immersive Sims on Steam WIP

Veronica died : (
Installed the unlimited companions mod just because I was bit bored of me and Boone killing everyone. She said she wanted to see the world, I showed her some legion camps and she died protecting me from Caesar's praetorians. The big man himself died, not sure if I got the final shot in though. Blew Benny's head off. Got the chip. Was tempted to reload to try and keep Veronica alive but resisted.
Interested to see how the game intends to make me care now though, my story has basically been one of fleeing from the legion, finding some allies to protect me from them and then buying up the armaments to get my vengeance. That's all done now but still plenty ways to go before the endgame. Am keen to see if they can offer any reason for an essentially violent drifter such as myself to want to settle or go for power for anything other than it's own sake.

Does anybody know if good old Jedi Academy on steam works on Windows 7 64 bit? Those older games on steam are a bit fiddly at times and I don't want to waste money on something that doesn't work...

Well I managed to get Jedi Knight working pretty much no problem and they are pretty much identical engine-wise. Windows 7 64 bit too.
You might have to do this though:
Basically you will get it working.steam: sketch

Never had any problems with Jedi Knight or Academy on Windows 7 64 bit, at most it's a quick sift through compatibility mode.

Besides my new New Vegas run, I've been playing the original stalker. I don't remember the Stalker boards in CoP, and I think it's a shame. The mods really are beautiful. I heard a top stalker get taken down in a three way fight between him, a pack of dogs, and a group of bandits. When I came around the corner they had pretty much killed each other and he had a neat special gun on his corpse. I do miss the reality storms from CoP, as well as the achievements. The nuclear eye one from staying out in the blowouts was awesome.
Get the stealthboy from the school, use it to sneak past the cazadores to the north of town. Angle as far away from the deathclaw mines as possible, jump over the hills and you're in the fiend ridden outskirts. Steal some gear from an NCR fiend fight and sell it for cash. Use luck to win at casinos, buy a luck implant, then an int implant, str, and ag and you're ready for level two with some fancy weapons and a piece of combat armor courtesy of the casinos. Kill some fiends, make some scratch, and get love and hate from one of the fiends.
I've tried doing gun builds but they bore the pudding out of me. I don't use NPCs either. Their stories are cool, but I like fighting, not watching Boone kill enemies I can't see. Cazadores are dangerous to a melee build. Deathclaws are lethal. The trick is to dodge their attacks (mostly through luck), and then punch them when they're on the ground. With a proper build virtual every enemy you hit will fall down. I've taken the queen out with a ballistic fist, industrial hand, the fireman's axe, and the proton axe. The Proton axe is by far the easiest, unarmed is brutally hard because you have to eat two melee attacks before making one of your own.
If you can, get the power armor and kill Caesar as soon as possible. He has a ballistic fist on him.

Well, lost all interest in my Torchlight 2 Berserker after getting killed by one of the first Champions of Act 3 ten times in a row. Just one of its dark shotgun attacks is enough to kill me, so my options are to either chug a lot of mana potitons and kill him with the shadow charge thing (since he shotguns as his default attack...) or give up, and I have chosen the latter. To be fair, I have found myself to be something of a glass cannon for a while now (not sure how I screwed it up), this is just the last straw.
I think the big problem is that Normal is WAY too easy, but Veteran seems to assume I intend to grind the same area multiple times to be the "right" level for an area. Shame there is nothing in between.Steam: Gundato
If you want me on either service, I suggest PMing me here first to let me know who you are.

Started playing Brotherhood again after some serious time off.
Is much more fun now. Especially now that I have money flowing in, good armour already bought, most of the place bought and only one more Lair of Romulus to loot (in the locked off St Peter's Basilica) before I can get that sweet dagger.
Then on to Revelations!
