    Fallout 1 and Minecraft. Playing with my sister ( who is 21 years old ) and it is lots of fun. With mods of course. Vanilla minecraft gets boring fast.

Besides, since you can change the game difficulty in addition to the monster difficulty, you can set it so that it'll remain challenging.
    I finished the game last week and agree with this. Thoroughly enjoyed it. I'll be going myself back for the new game+ soon as although I completed it I don't feel as though I'm done with it yet.

    Currently playing Cavestory+ and I am stuck at the Evil Core. Enjoyed it a lot till now but failing again and again at a boss battle is fun for only a short time. But somehow I am already tempted to start a new game once I beat it to get to the secret ending and getting some weapons I missed this playthrough. Leveldesign and the physics are perfect in this game. Didnt mind the backtracking you have to do in some levels.

    Anyways I had the great idea to try out Dark Souls again tonight and bounced right off from it again. Actually a really stupid idea when you are stuck at a boss battle to try to get into this one again. Had some problems getting it to run because of GFWL but I could fix it easily. Recently moved to China and you cannot use Gfwl there, but using a VPN did the trick.

    Tomb Raider reboot

    Okay, I'm more or less enjoying this game despite some obvious flaws but I had to pause and write this.

    minor spoiler ahead

    Lara Croft. Is she stupid? After broadcasting a SOS signal couldn't she say something like "Hey, almost forgot, there are seven thousand armed men here, be sure to bring expeditionary force with tanks and air support"? Why couldn't she at least mention armed thugs who kill people on sight? Why? I can already see a dramatic scene where rescuers are killed. All because Lara Croft is stupid.

    EIDT: oh, never mind. Writer just forgot about that. Plane was supposed to crash anyway. And where it was going to land again? On a mountaintop? Were they just dropping off supplies? What the hell, who wrote that idiocy?

    EDIT2: and then she just looked at how the pilot got stabbed to death. Now this may be screenwriters fault. Still, in my rage I spit tea all over my screen.

    DO NOT think about the story much - it's complete cobblers. You're not playing a Tomb Raider game, you're playing a third-person cover shooter and the story is just to make it OK for a young girl to murder EVERY SINGLE STRANGER SHE MEETS WITHOUT HESITATION by making them appear to be maniacs.

    If you get hung up on the SoS call - wait until you spend an hour climbing into a highly defended fortress that no-one has entered for centuries only to find the the men who were chasing you just strolled in the 'goons only' entrance and are ready to head-you-off the moment you get inside - that will blow your mind...

    Seriously tho - we need to ask Crystal Dynamics how the fuck they went from a Tomb Raider game to this...

    And in other news we have reports that, shocking enough, video games are neither realistic nor consistant! Well fuck-a-duck.

    Hurdurdur..Point is that they tried to create this belief that she is vulnerable etc.. Then they did that and that,and fucked up everything. Remember how you kill first deer and its like OMG NO WHAT HAVE I DONE FORGIVE ME ANIMAL FROM NATURE I AM HUNGRY! Then after that she is like oh deers and shoot dozen of them,same with killing first guy,after that she kills 300 guys more :|

    Nah, I disagree. All of the choices need to have some form of unresolved tension or issue for you to tackle, some sacrifice you have to make, as otherwise picking the one choice that didn't would be obvious and not picking it dumb or sociopathic. If choosing House had been a choice for everyone innocent or downtrodden being happy then it wouldn't have been much of a choice at all, and totally out of keeping with every thing else going on.

    Vulnerability went out the window when the game requires or even allows you to kill hundreds of enemies. The tone of the new Tomb Raider sounds like that which Far Cry 3 would have had if it hadn't played up the crazy side so much. FC3 cast you as a fish-out-of-water, but then gave you near-superpowers, guns, hallucinogens, a power-trip and reggae dubstep, then very self-consciously sets you up as a warrior god. Tomb Raider goes for the waterless fish again but gives you a tank top, a bow and probably internal bleeding, yet tries to then play straight the mass murder.

    This notion that House is anything other than a megalomaniacal objectivist who cares about nothing but himself and the handful of tribals he currently finds useful is very strange to me. But then, on first seeing the city of New Vegas, my first thought was "what an appalling waste of resources." It's a shame there's really no good path to follow for someone who has that thought, incidentally.

    I thought House was a massive dick. I killed him just out of spite, really.

    When Tomb Raider is good, it's really good. That just makes the flaws stand out more. The combat is enjoyable but I wish there was less of it. I don't mind its frequency, but the number of dudes in each encounter and the quantity of ammo is really stupid. It needs to be more I Am Alive, less Unsharted.
    The atmosphere, setpieces and mystery are fantastic.
    The amount of gore is phenomenal. In about five hours I think I saw more gruesome imagery than in all id shooters put together, including those they only produced. I love it. Best part was when various limbs and heads started tumbling down a slope as Lara moved through them.

    Yup, in my own game (which has been in limbo for about 3 months now, despite being pretty close to the end) it's really a (very hard) decision between the NCR and yes man as far I I'm concerned.
