    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.

    Trying to get back into EyE:Divine Cyberwhatsit's.

    Good things: Gunplay, decent visuals, interesting level designs and world, hilarious dialogue, pretty great music, load out system that's highly customizable and gives you that xcom feeling. Multiple ways to finish missions.

    Bad things: Make a sound and the enemy are all over you, monster boxes everywhere, enemies that have what I call bullshit guns (the turrets that just shoot you into the corners and keep you there with a hail of bullets).

    The AI of the enemies and the monster boxiness of it all are the big killers for me right now.

    Oh, what a pain. An hour's progress in my city vanished with just a click of a button. Forgot to save whole exiting to the region. Bah, I was losing money anyway and I can fix whatever wrong then. I still can't get rich sims and half of my city is dirty with run down buildings. I tried to expand the High-Tech industrial by building a new city dedicated just for that and there's at least some skyscrapers popping up on Awesomevill. What boggles me is that the high tech buildings in the industrial-only city went vacant after a while. I tried doing a few freight stations but it managed to fix a bit of that problem. Hmm...

    So, Bioshock Infinite was pretty neat. Not much for it's shooting but the setting is fantastic. Makes me want to see more of Columbia than to run around and flail the skyhook to the bads, though the game's a bit unsettling in some parts and I'm not talking about the violence. I just got Elizabeth out of that tower and now she's lost somewhere.

    Still some Company of Heroes 2 Beta.

    Now that I've developed two or three strategies against [redacted], I can appreciate the [redacted] of [redacted]. Surprisingly enough, though, my most effective infantry unit is [redacted], despite being a [redacted].

    I'm still playing Rift - it's still more fun and active and lively than Guild Wars 2 - leaping into every battle with a massive axe and cleaving multiple foes is still not tired.

    I couldn't give a rats-ass about the story, I'm ignoring it and just slashing my way through shit.

    Monaco - the singleplayer game is a fine stealth experience while the multiplayer starts that way but inevitably devolves into a chaotic mess. A fine example of entropy in a game if ever there was one.

    Been playing Arkham City quite a bit. It's really great, I think - a few additions which makes the game feel a lot different, lots of content (even excluding the riddler's trophy hunting) and the same enjoyable combat.

    Just continuing the Imperial Guard campaign in Dark Crusade. Trying to penetrate through the Necron stronghold was a real slog but I managed to blow it the fuck up. The best way to win this, imo, is to sweep dozens of pitiful soldiers through the map to their deaths before sending in the tanks. Usually the Basilisks are real game changer when I use the IG but they're ultimately better off holding positions in the bases I built, here. I don't think I have the confidence to take on the Orkz yet. Man, IG sucks with melee

    Ayup :)

    Imperial Guards in a nutshell, more like. Meat shields, all of them. Except the Kasrkins/Cadian Storm Troopers, they're awesome badasses who spew lasers like there's no tomorrow

    After two years of not playing any fps (DEHR does not count) I decided to play a bit of UT1 and UT3. Even managed to win one match on adept difficulty.

    I am very rusty tough. and need better mouse (using microsoft 12 dollar optical mouse)

    Fantastic night in Rift last night, still in the starter area (Level 14 at start - 17 when done) but there was some sort of invasion thingy on which meant huge groups of people kicking-ass everywhere you went.

    Being slightly higher than most I just leapt in a swept stuff aside in a hail of damage numbers, by the time it was over, half the landscape was sparkling with loot - I found one bit about 10 mins later when walking home!

    Still don't give a damn about the story, it just offers so many things to kill - every kill offers a quest to kill more things - there's someone behind every third tree wanting things killed, or collected from areas full of things to kill.

    OK - it's not original in any way but my oh my it likes to throw shit at you...

    See, a load of descriptions of MMOs make them sound really awesome, enticing even, but I know that as soon as I start it up, it won't be anywhere near as fun to actually play, I reckon.

    It depends what you want from a game - MMOs offer endless development and people to share it with but you have to WANT to develop and you have to find the right people to share it with.

    They require staggering amounts of time and whilst I tend to play most games in 30min-1hour bursts, for some reason I can sit with most MMOs for hours and hours so that doesn't bother me at all.

    Rift is probably the best example of a game which pushes players into grouping for stuff tho - and it seems good at balancing the content against the players avalilable (I've only once run into a group event we couldn't beat).

    MMOs are very much games that give out what you put in - they've not lazy corridor shooters you can quicksave every 10 paces in and there's seldom an ending but I LIKE that about them.

    Gonna start up Far Cry 3 today, see what all the fuss is about. Hopefully it'll be fun.

    I have a question for everyone who's playing Monaco: is the multiplayer still fun with random people? It seems like an incredibly interesting game, but I don't know anyone who would be interested in playing it, and I don't have a microphone so that element would also be out the window.
