    Thanks for the tip. I'd forgotten about that!

    Don't forget Star Wars: Rebellion. I'm currently looking for my disk.

    And the original TIE Fighter, and X-Wing Alliance.

    Empire at War and that older RTS which I've forgotten are pretty good too.

    Are you talking about Galactic Battleground (basically Age of Empires reskin) or Force Commander (terrible, terrible game)?

    So crysis warhead was short, less than 4 hours for the entire thing.

    But it was a mostly enjoyable 4 hours and the ending sections were far better than the originals.

    4/5 of the way through the back to the future adventure game. It's quite nice, bar the usual tell-tale shortcomings but it doesn't have that sam & max magic that they did quite well for me.

    Galactic Battlegrounds was the one.

    @apricot, I liked Warhead too, felt more fun than the first game and the ice sections were so gorgeous.

    Finished Bioshock Infinite, that last bit quite the mind bender.

    Dishonoured Dunwall City Trials

    Nice idea, lacking in execution. I didn't like the combat stuff too much but I was enjoying the stealth based missions a whole lot, right until I worked out that the scoring mechanics properly. If you're going to a stealth section, reward stealth, don't reward guessing and speed over stealth and accuracy.

    System Shock 2

    Completed! It only took.. many years. At release I'd quit on entering the living area near the end after getting completely lost and stranded in a radiation pool with no way to survive the return journey. Turns out I'd basically finished the game, but oh well - at least I never had to see that final boss fight until now. Still, it's better than a lot of recent games and managed to maintain the fear despite a creaking engine. I enjoy the Bioshock games but this was a reminder of where I wish they'd gone instead.

    Tomb Raider / Far Cry Blood Dragon

    Why can't developers handle mouse input properly? Neither allow me to set a low enough sensitivity from the menus, Tomb raider has no config file to edit I can find and Far Cry manages to introduce negative acceleration if I edit the config to drop the mouse speed low enough. Dropping the DPI to 400 or less in drivers shouldn't be a mandatory part of setting up mouselook in a game.

    I think I'll end up playing Tomb Raider with a pad, which will no doubt work perfectly out of the box. Motivation to play both games dropped significantly after all the fiddling and googling.

    Mario Wii U

    At least console games work with their controller out of the box! I wasn't planning to play this but mouse frustration led to non-PC time instead. More of the same but the first of the recent 2D ones to draw me into finding all the secrets.

    Oh man... That really takes me back. One of my all-time favourite (and most played) games, no question. I remember spending hours upon hours naming my ships and fleets for some reason. Think I need to go back and play that some more just to see how it holds up today...

    Game Dev Tycoon is really starting to open out now. I'm building whole departments for creating my own consoles, and researching more advanced stuff like digital distribution. At this stage it gets quite easy though, bankruptcy is only a looming threat in the earlier levels.

    The Force Unleashed 2 looks amazing and plays better than the original, but the environment and enemies are more repetitive. It's a better power trip, at least.
    Sam Witwer is really good as Starkiller. I liked him in The Mist too.

    Welp! Looks like Gorgutz brutally slaughtered the Space Marines right after I took over the space port. They wanted to vent out for losing to my wimpy guards I guess. After I take over their last line of defence, I'm off to storming their base. Time to roll out a single Baneblade off to their settlement!

    Increasingly I back up saves on dropbox to avoid such misadventures.

    Played through Freedom Force vs. the 3rd Reich. It's actually a very short game and, quite frankly, not a good one. It's not easy to put the finger on what's wrong with it. The whole nazi time travel story line lost its novelty almost instantly and even by comic book standards nonsensical. The three axis villains had zero charisma and felt inconsequential. The allied heroes didn't fare much better. The missions were short and not too interesting, often just going from A to B and killing everything in your path. Then the game continued its incredibly poor habit of forcing certain heroes in your team and removing others from your roster at what appears to be random. By the end it got a bit better and the Entropy story line was infinitely more interesting than the rest.
    Overall it felt like a massive step back from the original game. What a shame.

    Last weekend I decided to finish off the current Living Story in Guild Wars 2 and I finally managed to avoid getting distracted by zergs in Orr long enough to finish the Personal Story on my Asura Engineer (Rissc)

    Decided I'll temporarily shift my focus to my alts (Human Necromancer and Sylvari Warrior) as a change of pace.

    I've been gambling for Gheed's unidentified loot looking around for better armour and such. I gambled for a chain armour, a kite shield, a scale armour earlier on and a pair of heavy boots. So far, only the heavy boots were well worth their price. Anyways, I finished Act I and moved on to the desert while marvelling on how wonderful the cinematics were (at least, for its time). I really wished I could get some Paladin Shields this time. I only managed to nab a Rondashe and it was cracked

    Get yourself a new mercenary in act 2. Those guys have auras to help you out. Once you're level 20, go gamble a pike for your merc. It's the highest damage normal polearm. Personally I mostly just gamble for boots and gloves in early game, hoping for rare ones with 25% magic find + resists. There are also several nice early game runewords which you might wanna try to get, depending on what runes you find.

    Edit: Oh and remember you can use ethereal weapons and armor on your merc. He won't use up any durability.
