If you focus on crippling to start off that makes the sort of coup de grace attacks far more dangerous, and also allow you to kite enemies with impunity. Stay out of tight areas like caves and dungeons if you can or you'll fall fast. But yeah it's quite an involved sort of combat you have with the Thief, you have to do more than just spam attacks.
    I'm still experimenting with the different weapon combos to see which one I like the best. Pistol/dagger and dagger/pistol. Both fun, but I'm testing out the sword combos as well. Supporting skills are tough to settle on. I enjoy the process- it's nice to have meaningful choices to make, but also to be able to switch out and try different things. I enjoy the repair costs a little less, especially as they rather delayed my first access to traits by 3 or 4 levels (buying too much crafting supplies may possibly have also contributed. A tad.). It's good to have consequences to spur me along, though. Too many MMOs have the early levels of combat as a face roll on the keyboard being as good as any other tactic.

    Nothing really. I think I've mostly played the 'Stare at the list of installed games' game and the 'watch other people play games on YouTube' game most of all in the last year or so.

    I bought Rogue Legacy...but it's not for me.

    Playing Fallout New Vegas. I'm rather disappointed how buggy the game is, but that's not the worst.. it all seems so dead.. Yes, there are loads of locations but 80% of them are just that.. a location.. with nothing to do, no interaction except kill a few dudes.

    Pretty piss poor for an RPG... Everyone raved about this. :(

    Man I am right there with you. I don't know if there is currently a drought of games coming out or what, but I just can't get into anything that's come out recently.

    Rogue Legacy hooked me for far too damn long...still not finished with it. But I'm not usually a fan of the Roguelikes myself...

    Been playing a lot with the new Prison Architect update. Nothing like locking yourself up for 20+ years alongside the developers (Who are surprisingly murderous...)
    Yes, I update the below link frequently on a whisky fuelled rampage. I regret nothing.

    Lost an hour and a half worth of hard-fought multiplayer progress to a Steam-related Borderlands 2 crash, so I think I'm done with that game for a bit. 3 disconnects followed by a crash and "the Steam servers are too busy to handle your request." Right. Fuck you Steam.

    Going back to playing Anno 2070 in the interim, I think it's hilarious that Uplay (shit as it is) seems be be able to provide a more stable multiplayer platform than Steam tonight.

    Need to mod it. If you want yo give it another chance Search Fallout Mod Vegas in the forum search bar for my post and try some content mods and overhauls like Project Nevada. Will become an entirely more modern and friendly proposition if you're prepared to put the time in to making it so, but life's too short to spend your leisure time doing things which aren't fun so there's no shame in just moving on.

    Modded its probably the most impressive PC game I've ever played though, and undoubtedly one of the best.

    I've modded F:NV quite a bit, but no mod could change the inherent lifelessness of the base game. There are NPC mods, but somehow I can't shake the knowledge that they were added after the fact, while playing it. no suspension of disbelief.

    Now that I've completed LA Noire (finding three more cars was a pain even with the car showroom trick - which worked annoyingly inconsistently) I'm off to finish Stacking. When it was first out the film effect made it basically impossible to play but it has now been thankfully patched out.

    The Walking Dead: 400 Days - comments reserved to another thread. I'd just like to take this moment to remind you all if you haven't played TWD from TellTale games you really really really really should.

    Dust: An Elysian Tale - a friend of mine does some voice work in this game so I told him a long time ago I'd pick it up if it ever came to the gaming master race's machine of choice. It did and it's great fun. It looks amazing and the combat is so much fun, very fluid and just spectacular to look at. Can't wait to play more of it. Some of the voice work is dodgy, but that's just because the game was made by one guy (all art, programming and design was the work of one single man) while the voice work was given to people all over the world through community forums. Music is handled by Hyperduck so it's also pretty good. It's currently on sale for about a fiver, so if you like Metrodvania games and are looking for something visually very pretty this could be it. The one downside is that a lot of people will see it and think "this is for furries". It's not. If you see anthropomorphic animal characters and immediately think of furries then you probably never got to see many movies or tv shows as a kid growing up.

    Dust is a lot better than the demo suggested - my only real issue with it is the 'furry' thing, at times I feel like I'm alternating between playing a game which belongs to my daughter and a pervy old man - and I don't have daughter and don't think I'm a pervy old man :)

    I don't really get that feeling from it.

    I grew up watching a lot of cartoons and cartoon movies that had animals and anthropomorphic animals as the stars. I'm fully aware of the furry subculture and I think the game suffers from it because a lot of people today, particularly anyone younger than me would be more aware of anthropomorphic animals in the sexualized furry subculture sense than it being a legitimate art style that at one stage not all that long ago was very popular for animation.

    Also, apart from Fidget whose obviously different from the other characters (she's a guardian as opposed to a "person") are fully clothed and from a wide range of ages. The first NPC you meet outside of the vendor (who looks like a cow but is covered in a robe and you cant see any details of) is quite clearly an old lady who lives on a farm. There's barely any over the top sexualiztion of any of the characters, at least that I've seen so far.

    Alpha Protocol

    It took all my of RPG skills to install the thing. After trying to install the fucking game 2 times in a row I had a hunch that my disc copy was infact an American version of the game and I was right, the 3rd install I applied the US patch instead and it booted up nicely. Also this is the 3rd time I have play it but now I have got further then the tutorial and 1st mission and I am quite enjoying it.

    I think the problem was that I tried to treat it as a true stealth game and its really not and I got so frustrated with it especially with the guards, they have x-ray eyes and can hear a mouse fart and it pissed me off everytime I got spotted. Anyway, i'm still trying to play it stealth but this time if I get spotted, I say 'fuck it' and let the shotgun do the talking. Also i'm trying to pay real attention to the plot which I think i'm getting the gist of it even if I did miss a couple of cut scenes (No pause button on cut scenes, why oh why) and I quite like the dialogue wheel thing. So hopefully I might be able to complete this playthrough. Well 3rd times the charm as they say.

    A large part of the stealth portion of the game also assumes liberal use of the invisibility button. I resisted this at first, but when there are narrow pathways that lead straight into enemies, you start to use it.

    I just cleared Spec Ops colon The Line from my backlog. The first hour I played was really underwhelming and I just didn't care for it. Tried it again the following evening, just for a bit, and progressed through a few chapters. Then I was genuinely interested in what was going to happen.

    Finished it on the third evening and was glad I did. I liked that it was unsettling, and while I agree with the criticisms about it not offering player agency, it was a welcome change from so many military shooters. The Heart of Darkness angle was a bit heavy handed and there are some gaping plot holes, but I'm glad I played it. I didn't realise there were multiple endings till after I finished but, by the end, I consciously put my gun down because I just didn't have the stomach to shoot more people.

    I think it has flaws both as a game and as a commentary on gaming/human nature/warfare, but I'm glad it was made and that I did finally get around to playing it.

    I've finished The Walking Dead and was very pleased with the finale, although a couple days later I realized it reminded of Portal 2. I was kind of non-plussed by Ep 3, while 4 was easily my favorite of the 3 central ones.

    Then on I went to Karateka, and still wondering why they call it "rhythm based": except from the notes before each attack I didn't notice any sync between the music and the attacks... I'd settle for "beat em up on rails". In all in all I thought it looked a bit hastily put together, anyway.

    Also dabbled with 1000 Amps, which will be given a second chance when I'm feeling less impatient, before going back to Super Hexagon.

    And now a question: is the original Crusader Kings worth my time (given that Amazon haven't given me another chance yet to nab the whole of CK2 supahcheap), and if so, any advice for tutorials/letsplay/whatev to have a less rocky start?

    Mortal Kombat - 100% awesome. I played it on the PS3 but this is the first time I'm going through the story. I'm a complete noob and I find the second difficulty out of five challenging. Perhaps the keyboard will feel better than the 360 controller...

    Also I tried to play Sniper Ghost Warrior 2. I changed the graphics to DX11 and now it won't start. Turns out the latest patch broke DX11. I'd have to go to the registry to to put it back to 9 but now I don't even want to play it anymore lol
    Maybe when the next patch hits I'll try it again.
