Slow week for me...
I played a bit of Borderlands 2, 15 hours in. I am still having fun, I am still dying around bosses (but i sense it's getting better with the talents points). I don't think I'll play this game more than one playtrough though.
Started Don't starve again. I hadn't played it since the beta... It's an amazing game, with lots to discover. I am on my 18th day... I made a small camp protected by weak walls.. I died of hunger but was revived thanks to a shrine i discovered.
I still have trouble finding food... I have to find cows somewhere to start a farm if I don't want to ... starve.
Now that Ninja Gaiden is over, I started playing Oddworld: Stranger's wrath... It's a cool game with an amazing setting, but the controls on the vita are difficult (even a bit shitty) (I wish I could de active the rear screen, I keep zoomiing at the worst time).

I love games that have a great atmosphere and The Swapper is a very easy addition to that list. The graphics, music and ambient sounds combine superbly while the puzzles are nice and juicy too.
Still trying to get my head around Natural Selection 2's most recent update, which changed the balance in almost everything in the whole game. I don't think the newbies enticed by the recent sale have been impressed when even the veteran players aren't able to answer their questions!
Magic 2014's brand new sealed mode is a lot of fun. Winning with a deck you've constructed yourself feels very rewarding.
Also replaying Thief: Deadly Shadows. I still love this game - can't quite understand the hate it gets. Need more first person games with full-body mantling - climbing stuff is fun.

Well, now I've actually finished Hotline Miami for reals, bonus chapter and all.
Didn't get A+ in all chapters but I'm not that sick.
I've been also dabbling into Crusader Kings 2. I'm falling in love with it even though I don't understand half of it. I'm in my first crusade and It's going terribly bad for me. I still don't fully understand the subtleties of combat.

Finished replaying SR3 in anticipation of SR4. Much love for that game. As a compare and contrast I've recently started replaying GTA IV and it's just feels so utterly leaden and ponderous in comparison.

FTL, playing on easy because I might as well try it. Got all the way to the boss ship on my first playthrough, beat it once and then let it go. Fought two rebel ships that hurt me more than it did on the way to get missiles. On the second time dronesplosion murdered me. Started an Engi game and died in the first fight. Did it again and now I'm low on drones, low on fuel, low on scrap, and hopelessly overmatched.
Killed 2 people by accidentally shutting off my oxygen in a fight because I am so smart.

FTL on normal. Trying to figure out what a good build is. I get 2 shields asap but between upgrading power as well, no idea what to get. Unlocked the engi ship.

As a general rule, I usually don't start upgrading my shields until I have 100 scrap that I don't want to spend on anything else; exactly the cost of a shield bubble and the energy to power it.
Made a run with the Red-Tail yesterday and absolutely obliterated. I replaced one basic laser with a dual laser, another one with a Heavy Laser I, and kept a Breach II bomb in reserve for the boss. Also got a teleporter in the third sector, and I got another Mantis added to my crew when I turned against the Engi that were chasing it, which made a nice boarding party together with the Mantis I already had. Add a Scrap Recovery Arm, an Automated Re-Loader and a Defense Drone II to the mix and there was nothing that could touch me. I don't care what anyone says, winning is way more fun than losing.

Are level 3 upgraded sensors worthwhile?

05-07-2013, 06:30 PM #15772I'm failing to writing a blog, specifically about playing games the wrong way

If the enemy ships weren't designed in such a way that they always have exactly as much energy they need to power all of their systems, I might see some more use for it.

The first thing I upgrade in FTL is engines. Because the only thing better than a blocked projectile is an evaded projectile.
Pro tip: After a tough fight, never teleport your boarding party into a teleporter room without oxygen! ;)
Shields have influence on the number of fires? Interesting...

I bought They Bleed Pixels because it was cheap (GMG) and I liked the Giant Bomb quicklook
I was prepared for it being NAILS hard
It is NAILS HARD but I love it - I love how I've spent eons on just the first level looking for stuff and perfecting bigger scores and better ways of getting through it.
OK - it's a retro pixelart (fixed resolution) platformer - that may be offputting to some - but it's got fantastic controls and some genuinely original ideas (you earn score which unlocks checkpoints you place as you see fit).
It also uses words like Eldritch - what's not to like?

I am playing Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien. It is very good. Once you customize the controls and get used to the rhythm of it then it is a very satisfying platformer.

Tried out the original Crusader Kings, the interface looks a bit cluttered and the map confusing to me, but I might have managed to reproduce the trademark "I don't know what I'm doing, I'll just poke around and stuff will happen to me" gameplay. An hour flew by without much of a notice.
Then Children of the Nile caught my eye and felt like giving it a spin: went for the first of the in-depth tutorials, which is clear enough but a bit slow/hollow (you just do what you're told and wait for the results), and that alone took an hour; when I was done I finally realized it was only Episode 1 of the first Season of tutorials :o The level of detail seems quite amazing while the UI looks smooth even though it lacks the visual polish of more recent games. I'm gonna try to stick with it for a while, but maybe saving the in-depth tutorials for later.

Played my first few DOTA 2 games against actual humans. Didn't do as well as I hoped, nor as badly as I could've.
