    I fully intend to play the “evil” side when I can work out how to make it fun. There just seems to be less dialogue, content and just New Vegas in general when playing as the Legion though. Might be a good run to do the DLC or Bounties Mod with I guess.

    Battlefield : Bad Company 2. Heard about it only recently, bought it off ebay for about 3 quid, downloaded a huge 2.4GB patch for it and finally got to play. Exploding my way through the SP campaign right now... WHY ARE BUILDINGS IN EVERY GAME NOT DESTRUCTIBLE!

    New Victoria is kaput. Fuck it. I'm off mayoring to Awesomeville. Now, Awesomeville is kinda sustaining themselves rather than rely on NV's power supply at all times. Good, but as the city grows, business shrinks and I'm getting a bunch of vacant/dirty buildings in the outskirts, particularly in the comercial zones which are high density. I tried lowering taxes but demand for commercial is still below zero and I can do nothing about it. I've also zoned some industrial zones for high tech as demand for it soar sky high. It's been pretty slow so far. Probably because pf my sims in the city are particularly poor. Gotta find a way to make 'em rich, fast

    Double true, its such a game changer. I do wish the grinding was a thing of the past though.

    Crysis (1) completed.

    Was more fun than I thought it would be, it does go down a bit after you meet the aliens but nowhere near as much as I'd heard from some places. Actually looking forward to firing up warhead sometime now.

    Next up away from the PC, Injustice.
    A PC version would have suited me better but it decided not to exist.

    Finished Driftmoon a couple of days ago (took me about 10 hours) and I think it's an adorable little game with good story (although not the most original, with quite a few pop culture references), nice looks and some great ideas.
    I think I can describe as an adventure with RPG elements or as a small RPG with adventure elements. You got your leveling up, abilities and some decision making (I wonder how the story plays if you choose the "evil" options...) mixed with item usage, lever pulling in the right order and even a sliding tiles puzzle.

    So now I went back to Kingdoms of Amalur and this time I'm politely ignoring all those annoying people with exclamation marks above their heads.
    I already reached the second continent and finally the story gets more interesting and I feel more involved in what happens in the world. It makes the side quests ignoring feels like I'm finally playing kingdoms of Amalur the right way....

    Clearly checking things off your to-do list is the best way to play games.

    I'm playing Monaco, reveling in its cheerful singleplayer, but have no-one to play with. mumble server?
    Also I'm still trying to figure out Starseed Pilgrim. Adam's promise that I'll have figured out the basics within a half an hour turned out not to be true.


    [Spoilers (I agree that it's a game to be discovered for yourself, but I suck at such things)]
    I have managed to notice that there are two planes: one where new seeds are scarce to the point of running out before I can reach another platform or decipher the text that is written above them. And another, where I have the possibility of extracting seeds from the blocks I plant, but the black stuff is progressing at a "neverending story"-sort-of-depressing speed. Which should I try to progress at first?
    [/Spoilers]

    This is the post-WoW vision of good RPG design. At least I think WoW is to blame for the popularization of quest log as TODO list. Definitely for the exclamation marks.

    The Demo of Euro Truck Simulator 2 is rather generous, I gotta say. Played for nearly 3 hours straight without encountering any limitations, pop-ups or in-game advertisements. Apparently, you can aggregate up to 3.000 km or visit up to 8 cities before the demo shuts down, which is more than enough to evaluate the game.

    Cara's game is really interesting. Thank you for the link.

    I checked it out. Pretty amusing, especially when I realised she was writing out the lyrics to a Ladyhawke song.

    Alright, so I started on Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Gosh. There's a lot to do it in, isn't there? Also, I think it may be clever, like, sentient-level intelligent. After the prologue, I wandered around the offices and went into the ladies' loo. Before leaving Pritchard later, he told me not to go into them. I don't know if he already said that or was simply aware. Spooky! Also, in taking some time with making conversation decisions, it briefly interrupted my selection to tell me to hurry up, as spoken by the other person at the time.

    I've put it on the hardest difficulty, in way of trying to keep myself sufficiently challenged. Other than dying in a few shots, I can only surmise that detection distance is reduced, or that it's easier for enemies to pick up on odd things happening around them, like me headshotting them with a tranq dart from the otherside of the room and lining up all the shots with everyone who goes to check it out. That kinda thing.

    So far so fun though. I'm not in love with the limited energy mechanic, although I understand why it's in there. Also, some of the saving/loading systems are a bit silly. It's not that they don't work, but that quick loading only loads your last quick save, as opposed to your last any save, but whatever. Completed the first main mission and now off to explore the world. Only taken 3 hours to get there...In my defence, I have been talking to almost everyone I can do and exploring a bit, not to mention a few resets that lost me a few minutes each.
    Powered by Steam. And biscuits. I'm also a twit and dabble in creative writing.

    Spent a bit of time with Metro 2033, and it just really isn't my thing. Gorgeous game, incredibly atmospheric, and I can totally understand why a lot of people love it, but it just really didn't click with me. I got it for free, so I don't feel ripped off or anything, but nor do I feel like I should continue with it.

    I just don't thing FPSs are my thing. I bounced right off of Half Life as well. Just didn't grab me, as much as I can tell that it's a well made game.

    So I played it, was entertained, but now because of the background being so obnoxiously pink/magenta/whatever my screens appear to have a very heavy greeny cyany tint. Like when you wear (old style) 3D glasses and the eye that had the blue lens sees red and the one that had the red lens sees blue.

    THE HORROR.

    However I have been playing Hitman: Abababababab. It's actually nowhere near as bad as I'd been led to believe but it's also nowhere near as good as a Hitman game should be. It allows for some freedom of approach to situations but is ultimately too linear and doesn't feature anywhere near enough assassinations. I do get a kick out of fibrewiring/silverballing/accidenting the prey, though, but I also love that the AI is so poor that in some situations you can shoot your target in front of everyone and as long as they can't see the target they don't even care. It feels so supremely badass, until you realise it's just the AI being stupid. Policemans don't carry around massive silenced .45s and they certainly don't fire them into what you'd assume to be empty apartments, so stop being cool with that. But wait until I've left the area please.

    Dead Island Riptide is incredible. Not in a good way, mind you. The first time I launched it, it decided to launch in in windowed mode. It wasn't windowed, but it claimed to be. It told me to adjust the gamma, but that I couldn't, because it wasn't running in full screen mode. Okay..? Alrighty, educated guess and let's move on!

    Went into options and video settings. Adjusted a few things and was told to restart the game. Sure, standard procedure, I suppose. It then crashed twice on startup. Now I'm past the intro ads and have reached the "push any button to continue" screen. But... I am. Why isn't anything happening?

    ...

    To be continued, I suppose.

    Continued! Got it working. I think I got the wrong intro sequence (or they just have the one with the australian girl), but now I'm comfortably trapped in a Chinese woman's body. Going into character. Here we go.

    I have had it with these motherfucking zombies on this motherfucking ship!

    EDIT 2: This game is in dire need of some AA (and writing). Isn't there some way of forcing it (AA, that is)? I have HD6950 crossfire.
