Currently playing FEZ, which is pretty fun, but it could really do with a better fast-travel system. It's a pain in the ass to figure out which of the five doors in a hub area leads to the path that you're trying to get to. I'd rather just be able to click on the visited areas and warp there. I've already made my way there once, why do I have to do it again?
I'm also codebreaking, but apparently the sides of the counting cube did not correspond to the numbers one, two, three and four. But I think I mapped some symbols to the buttons on my keyboard using the posters in the boiler room and that one weird pillar. No idea what to do with those though.

Dead space 3 is a good example for why developers needs to hire good editors. It's 20 hours long which is around 10 hours longer than what it should be. There too many pointless and recycled area that turn what could be quite a good game to something a bit boring.
They also dialed down difficulty by making ammo and medkits a craftable objects, which brings to crafting - another pointless implementation.
Also finished 400 days and couldn't quite figure if it's a prologue for season 1 or some sort of test.
Anyway, I managed two out of five (people to join the group) and was on the lower part of the statistics in 4 out of 5 stories.
Oh. And it's quite a good DLC that carries on the same line of thought and great writing of the main game.

I've also been playing a bit of Driftmoon, but very slowly - so far it looks very generic, although it's cute. And I started Dishonored, but the fact that I'm awful at stealth games makes for a slightly frustrating experience. "Let's see if I can get past this guy... oh crap... *kills everyone*" :(

Angelica Weaver: Catch Me When You Can. Not even sure where I got this from, except that I think it was a recent bundle.
It's a hidden object game, probably fairly standard for those (I've only played Tiny Bang Story, which is not standard, so I don't really know, but it's similar to a demo of another game I tried), but I'm fairly impressed with the work that went into it. The 2D graphics are quite nice and they even bothered to make a 3D avatar overlaid the 2D, and found a voice actor too. It also has a simple physics engine for a few puzzles.
It takes place in both 1880s London and modern Chicago, so that's a bit unusual too (or so I would guess). Murder mystery thing, with some surprises, although that could well be because of some major plot holes; not quite sure if I just wasn't paying enough attention.
I spent a mostly pleasant six hours on the main game, but it's the collector's edition, so there's an extra chapter and some other stuff too.
ETA: hmm. Word of warning; the game apparently has a massive bug that at times makes it impossible to start the game unless you delete the file where your progress is saved.
At least I got to play it through, plus the bonus chapter, before it happened, but it seems like a lot of people aren't so fortunate.

Just finished Call of Juarez: Gunslinger. Very flawed with a lot of frustrating bits (admittedly, I played on Hard), but I really enjoyed it.
Also been playing a bit of Mechwarrior Online and am thinking of a Path of Exile build to play as.
And I'll probably bite the bullet and just go start up Dragon Commander on Easy at some point.Steam: Gundato
If you want me on either service, I suggest PMing me here first to let me know who you are.

Ugh, no wonder all of my solutions are wrong. I got Fez's numerals completely wrong, but that's because they don't make any sense!
Spoilers: I assumed that all the possible combinations of stripes would be exhausted before starting with a new stripe. So, if top-stripe is 1, and right-stripe is 2, then top-right stripe is three. Correct so far. The next logical step would be to call bottom-stripe four, and then top-bottom stripe (4+1) five, right-bottom stripe (4+2) six, and so on.
But that's not the case. Bottom-stripe is ALSO three. Left-stripe is four. It goes on from there until all four stripes are in, which is ten. But that means you can write four as left-stripe, but also as top-right-bottom-stripe. Five is not only top-left-stripe but also bottom-right-stripe.
That's completely backwards! Who would use numerals like that?
I haven't even got a clue about how to figure out the alphabet...

I've been spending some time in both single and multiplayer trying to learn to play Rise of Flight. It's an enormously neat game, even though I suck terribly at it, but even incremental improvement is really rewarding.

Got around to playing Deadlight (a summer sale cheapie) - it starts-off well-enough but my god does it resort to some cheap tricks and nasty ideas by the end of Chapter 2.
The controls go from seeming OK to being - quite frankly - horrible, sticky and nasty - wall jumping is a particularly 'potluck' activity (often with certain death if you miss it - or worse still, dropping into somewhere you cannot get out of!!)
and it's one of those game which 'reloads' if you need to go back more than 2' too - grinding my gears...

Everybody in Tropico 3 is an asshole. From the superpowers who can't leave things alone to my loyal people who're complaining no matter what I do. I'm supposed to be the asshole and I'm not good at that, clearly.

Started playing Dragon Age again, accidentally created a character who looks about 13, and am now roleplaying a moody teenager trying to save the world.Irrelevant on further examination of the rest of the thread.

I'm not finding this game easy at all. Last attempt ended when I got invaded by the US and I gave up on the current one when it was impossible to get enough soldiers hired to win over the rebels. Secret police didn't have much effect either, nor prisons (they seem vaguely pointless since I never had a single prisoner).
I did better when I was all nice, but things still collapsed.

Syndicate is penis. Don't bother with it.
Moving on to Disciples 3 as I have no idea what I'm in the mood to play. Tempted to go through Sacrifice again but that gets abit stressful.

Anno 1404. It's, well, it's an Anno game. You played one, you kinda played them all. The campaign is remarkably daft. It's supposed to be something about crusades but it's still set on tiny islands and some suspiciously anonymous emperor. Like, everybody just calls him emperor. Is this taking place in the same universe as Waterworld or maybe Warhammer? 1404 years after the bombs were dropped? Is history really that cyclical?
Yeah, it really doesn't make a lot of sense.Old hat! A Steam curator page focusing on Immersive Sims WIP
