Finaly beat that helicopter in Ninja gaiden sigma plus without potion. Hurray !
have played two more maps of Iron brigade... kinda fun but weapons feels weightless. And I wish there was localized damages as well (tails, wings, legs), it would have been better.

After Mark of the ninja I accidentally started Hotline Miami...
At first I thought it was one of those game that are difficult for the sake of difficulty (like Meatboy or VVVVV), that I personally find frustrating. But after less than an hour I realized that it's not difficult but clever and, till now, didn't feel frustrated (like in the games I mentioned above), even after getting killed a dozen times.

Way to go, RAGE!
"You, get in the buggy!"
"Yeah, just a sec, let me have a look what's up that ..."
Uhm, alright, "Reload from checkpoint", then ... ... ... which in id land obviously is another way to say "Restart the bloody game from the very beginning and sit through the unskippable cutscene again!"
Worst first impression in the history of gaming. Screw you, id!
Angry-Edit: Holy Effing Shit, what is wrong with this game?
Now I'm sitting in said buggy when the game freezes completely for solid 5 seconds ... and back to smooth 60 fps ... nope, freezes again ... arghh ...
It also seems that the graphic options give you the choice between "Super-ugly textures" and "A-bit-less-ugly textures but with added micro-stutters" ...

Personally I didn't have any technical problems with Rage other than the slow-loading textures (that tech might work for on-rails shooters, not so much in games where turning around is a thing that people do) yanking you out of any possible immersion, I would've picked consistently lower res textures than that streaming mess.
I'm playing X3: Albion Prelude. I sort of accidentally left it running all night after I thought 'hey, if I let it run while I eat dinner I might earn a few tens of thousands through my sector traders!' then watched Django Unchained and went to bed, forgetting I'd left the game running. I came back today approximately 32 million credits more wealthy than the 3 and a bit million I had before I left. Totally not complaining.

Why, Capsized. Why would you give me a gravity gun without a put-down button. And pressure plates that I have to use it for. Why.

Seriously? Just aim to put it down near the pressure plate and use your air blast to knock it in the general direction. It is kind of annoying and a control oversight though.

Ah, RAGE, I really want to like you ... Why are you making this sooo hard?
The freezing issue seems to be completely gone. I only experienced this in my initial play session, so maybe the game was creating some cache files or something. Okay.
But there are so many other quirks. Texture quality up close is abysmal, no matter what. Usually not something I would criticize, but in this case it's clashing with the overall quality and detail of the world in a very distracting manner. The FOV is extremely narrow. Again, not something I usually have issues with but here even half an hour of gameplay is really tiresome.
Savegame slots are limited to a generous 15 for no apparent reason. This is even more of a joke because early on the game encourages you to "save early and often" in a tooltip. Then there are these pop-up messages whenever the game introduces new gameplay elements. The first two occurrences I could close with a click on "Accept", the third one didn't even bother to show a mouse pointer and I could only close it by hitting Enter. And the game changes this behavior on a case-to-case basis.
It's really hard to believe that this the work of one of PC gaming's pioneers. And a damn shame, too. Because I really, really dig the art style and character of the world. Maybe I'm gonna try to "enjoy" it in some smaller doses, then.

This year I am trying to work on my backlog... Since january 1 I finished Xcom EU, persona 4 Golden, Sleeping Dogs, Darksiders, Dishonored, Limbo, Dark souls, The Darkness 2, Spec Ops the Line, Max Payne 3, Legend of Grimrock, Mars War Logs...
But I did this without any logic... I still have so many games to play, so I started another list, with some games I know I'll want to finish at some point (sometimes I remove a game from my backlog because I know I won't finish it... like Hard reset lately... Kane and Lynch 2 might disappear too...)
So here is some games I already installed on my hard drive.
Playing= Iron Brigade 7 h tower def
Space marin 10 h action
LA Noire 25h adventure
Trine 2 10h puzzle/action
Psychonauts 15h Adventure
Borderlands 2 30h Shooter rpgish
Mark of the ninja 10h Action/puzzle
Darksiders 2 25h Action/adventure
The list lacks a good shooter... maybe Metro 2033... and there isn't any RPG, strangely...
Now I don't really know how to proceed, smaller games first ? By genre ? mixing everything, by name ?

In what universe is Borderlands 2 not a good shooter? :)

For a burning satire of 'social' games, Little Inferno does a good job of being entertaining. It's probably because setting things on fire is inherently fascinating. The fire looks and acts really good too, they must have put a lot of work into that.

Can anyone show me some mods that are good for Fallout New Vegas, but don't modify anything too much? I read of a realism mod made by a creator of the game or something like that, which make F:NV hardcore mode better?
I just want some simple stuff that make gameplay/questing better, the more complicated they are the more bugs they will have so i don't want to put too many mods (for example project nevada is too complicated).

My guide there. They all work together, or separately. The Mod you're talking about is the JP Sawyer mod, there' s a link in that thread.
Worth saying though that if you don't want to run the gauntlet of bugs and crashes you are playing the wrong game. Probably the best game I've ever played, so that's not a dig, but it will die on you at least every other session because that's what New Vegas does, with or without mods, it's just inherently a crasher.

I'm going to write a more long-form musing on this somewhere, but it took me 80 hours to finish Space Pirates and Zombies. While I enjoyed the game, the time-consumingness of its gameplay was not one of its virtues, which once again calls into question the meaningfulness of a $-per-hour metric of value."Moronic cynicism is a kind of na´vetÚ. It's na´vetÚ turned inside-out. Na´vetÚ wearing a sneer." -Momus
