I'm going to resist the temptation of loading a save to see if I like the other outcome better, because I'm very curious to see how this is going to turn out, given that I've sided with the elves at every point until now. I even gave them all my mutton! But this time I decided there was no helping them.
Also, if I'd known that I was leaving the lakeside region with Aerondight and Berengar's sword, I wouldn't have spent thousands of orens on sword upgrades just hours before. Oh well.

Right. Playing as a science-geek early on in NV, not a good idea. I'm back to playing as a tank again and honestly, it's much more fun, especially when I got a Power Fist. I still don't get why killing a few Bighorners would up the karma rating. I mean, I'm not trying to play as a good guy here. Not now.
OTOH, I'm gonna start playing XCOM again after a long hiatus tomorrow. I think I'm gonna ditch the Ghost-Archangel combo. Not working well aside from the annoying bomb disposals, which worked pretty well. Last time I played it, I'm in a middle of kicking their ass after they landed somewhere. Abductor-class UFO and expecting a couple of Sectopods. Not too rough since the Colonel gets two rockets that deals twelve damage a pop vs. robots. Here we goArt blog here.

Finished Mark of the ninja yesterday. It was by no means a bad game, I always welcome any sneaking around or puzzle-solving game, but I found this one to be quite bland and uninspired, and the lack of any meaningful challenge didn't help either.

I think The Witcher 2 works on account of that sort of thing being dialled back and just getting a million very ambitious basis things right instead. The ambition is in the professionalism and polish of the scale attempted rather than the massiveness of the ideas, which is very much the first game's raison d'etre.

Yeah, one problem was that most people approaching The Witcher 1 (myself included) had no real background on the books, so we didn't understand the magic system and what is "normal".
By The Witcher 2, it was a lot easier to follow as we had all been given "Geralt 101" as it were.Steam: Gundato
If you want me on either service, I suggest PMing me here first to let me know who you are.

I'm starting to think FTL should be renamed to FML.

I'm behind on posting here, so it's going to look like I've been super-efficient with game completions, but... no, not so much.
Mark of the Ninja - I blazed through this game in only two sittings. Not that it's a particularly long game anyway, but it grabbed me and held on quick. Amazingly well-done stealth mechanics, and I can't wait to dive into the just-announced DLC.
The Path - Uhh, okay. Not my style of game, but I can understand how someone would like it. Someone who hates fun, that is.
DmC Devil May Cry - I have to admit I hated the new style for Dante when this game was originally announced, but I was never up-in-arms about it. First of all, the presentation, story, and characterizations were unexpectedly polished. It was really interesting to see where Dante and Vergil so drastically diverged and why. Ninja Theory also impressed me with the fighting mechanics here. They really GET this series, and I'm eager to jump back into the Vergil DLC and some higher difficulty playthroughs as soon as I can.
Sleeping Dogs - It's always been MY FAULT when I quit GTA-like open-world games, because I get focused on a clearing all of a single type of mission on the map, but then burn out on it, take a break, and never return to the game. It's happened on more than one occasion, so I am trying hard to force myself to mix up the mission selections more. The gameplay itself is fantastic though. I may actually like the combat more than Rocksteady's Batman series, but I'm not deeply enough into the combat upgrades to know for sure.
Also getting caught up on PS3 titles I've never played since I just bought that console, but I won't bore RPS-goers with non-master race entries :)

I have managed to finally finish Dark Souls and feel such a sense of accomplishment from getting to the end of such a hard game and killing all the bosses solo!
It has given me a taste for hard games where the odds are stacked against me so I thought I would give XCOM another shot on Classic Ironman. I got quite far into Classic before but didn't realise Ironman was an option I had to enable so found myself savescumming against my better judgement. Ironman makes things a lot more tense and fun but I find it hard to concentrate after a long day at work and it's annoying to have to restart the whole thing if I have a string of bad luck.
I'm finding the second wave options make the game a lot more interesting, I'm playing with "Not Everyone is Born Equal" option and the one that levels up soldiers with random stats make the game far more interesting. Hiring new squad members is a lot better and more tempting when there's a chance I get some good starting stats. I've also played a disable the bomb mode that wasn't in there when I played before, was pretty fun and I liked how it encouraged you to push forward quickly rather than sit about in overwatch.
Playing Super Hexagon on the commute to work on my Android has also inspired me to pick up VVVVVV once again. I didn't get that far into it before as I found Super Meat Boy, which was released close to it, had far better precision in its platforming. However, I have reached "The End" in SMB and know I can't make any more progress so VVVVVV is a good substitute. I especially like the hub overworld and the games soundtrack is certainly one of the better ones I have heard.

Freakin' New Vegas annoys me so much it deserves a second rant! There isn't even the most basic motivation supplied upfront to do the majority of quests, being unable to ask what the exact payment for a job is or even ask for a payment at all. Sometimes after clearing a nest of nasty beasties my employer just shrugs and says "that's great kid, now get outta here, ya bother me." FUCK YOU, PAY ME!
20-03-2013, 12:10 AM #13575
So few people would actually pay me for the tasks they asked me to do that I eventually got browned off with it again. "Oh thanks for going to the other side of the fucking map, to some arsehole ruins filled with murderous bandits to recover my grans necklace that I gambled away and probably will again." Rewards? No? FUCK YOU I'LL TAKE MY OWN!"Halo is designed to make the player think "I look like that, I am macho sitting in my undies with my xbox""

Looks good men. Will spread the love around.... 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.

But you guys are right! Now that I've finished my 12th playthrough (this evening) I'm going to move on to something else. I don't know what yet but I'd like it to be something meaty, maybe I'll start Mass Effect again, again... Or maybe a Star Wars game?

I finally made it through Might & Magic 8. The entire last part was incredibly boring and tedious. I had to force myself over the last couple of days and even doing the dishes was a more exciting alternative at times. There wasn't even a boss fight at the end or something. That's typical for M&M games but here it just felt incredibly anticlimatic.
Lady Anthile also spent most of her time being insane. That sounds worse than it is because it boosts your physical stats and lowers the mental ones. Just like in real life.
In the end...
