I started playing The Witcher: Enhanced Edition. Maybe I'll actually finish it this time.
Far Cry 2 has a lot of interesting gameplay elements. It's just a shame that the enemy enouncters aren't more varied.

Also, my complaint about the right clicking turns out to be a mistake; I didn't realize you could right click again to get back to where you left.

Finished Analogue: A Hate Story, which I really liked. Although it can get a bit tedious at times when you're an idiot like me and don't know how to progress, it tells a really good story. I also love that it uses a visual novel style, as that is traditionally reserved for "choose your own girlfriend" games.
Tried the Lilly looking through demo on Steam, uninstalled after two minutes.
Tried Cart Life, it was exactly what I expected. However, not in the mood to play an intentionally tedious game right now.
Edit: Started up Universe Sandbox for the first time today as well. I crashed the moon into the earth, good fun! Will crash the earth into the sun next time.GW2: Urraca Aldor

I bought MGS: Special Missions last Thursday and finished it on Friday. The sneaking missions with or without the SOCOM are great fun, the target shooting, man shooting, 1 minute battles, and vs. 12 battles range from 'meh' to 'gaaaaaHHHAAAARRGH', but the real value is in the VR Mission (10 stages with an overall time limit), Mystery, Variety, Ninja and NG Selection missions. Especially the ninja missions. They're not exactly challenging though.
Other than that, I'm hobbling along trying to 100% Just Cause 2 on the hardest difficulty - this is long, it took me nearly 100 hours on PS3 and that was on normal difficulty. So far I've been approaching it in three phases; shoot anything destructible first, then go back to do anything that needs a code (biofuel shafts and pipelines), then go back a third time to pick up collectibles. This is obviously not the fastest way, but it stops me from wanting to commit computercide due to being killed very quickly by helicopters as soon as I look at the inside of a military base. I spent tonight doing Arma 3's challenges, they were pretty good fun until I got to the third orange course (I skipped the blue ones entirely and didn't try red 3 either) where I couldn't find one target. I managed to impress myself by getting a shot on one of the moving 1100m targets in the orange 2 course while it was hidden behind a tree, but in truth I think it had slowed down a lot as it was about to fall down. Either way, I shot it and I felt like a sniper king.
That's about it. Oh, Battlefield 3 with RPSers is fun. We should all do that tomorrow.

Finished off Assassins Creed Brotherhood last night. Enjoyed it for the further adventures of Ezio as well as the banter of Desmond, Shaun, R3becca etc (who I'm warming to a bit more) however some of the 100% sync challenges are pretty ludicrous in terms of requirements and fail states.
Started up Revelations now, which I must admit hasn't quite grabbed me. Perhaps in part because of the unwarranted change in appearance of the characters of Desmond & Ezio who look little like their earlier incarnations, and perhaps also some unnecessary changes to the control scheme. Also just did the first tower defence sequence and really can't say it's something I care for. Still I want to see Ezio's story through to its conclusion.

If you did the first tower defence, you've done every mandatory tower defence. Just don't let your infamy or whatever they call it get too high for long and you'll be fine.
The rest of it... I sort of wish there was some way that the settings could have been swapped around. I feel brotherhood is a bit too long for just pondering around a setting you've largely explored (renaissance italy) whereas revelations, which is lovely and new, is comparatively short.

Was replaying Mass Effect 3, The Fast Show was on in the background... had to be done, sorry. Work in progress, aware of the obvious flaws.

Coming soon: John Actor is a tough, uncompromising N7 biotic, in "Mass Effect: MONKFISH."

Now if I can get a GIF going of the Mako replacing that Land Rover thundering over that little bridge...

I feel a little embarrassed for Ubisoft they have 3 ways of scoring your play.
Ghost (less than lethal stealth)
Panther (lethal stealth)
Assault (lethal, not stealthy)
The obvious omission being:
Bear (?) (less than lethal, not stealthy)
And i spent some time playing that way, the heavy armour guards are tricky to take down harmlessly without stealth.I'm failing to writing a blog, specifically about playing games the wrong way

Sonic lots of words Transformed has gotten tricky now that I've gotten my Class A license. I'm guessing the game proper begins here.
Can I get a quick piece of Shogun 2 advice? When I start I have a couple of neighbours, one of whom is hostile and one of whom isn't. According to my objectives I need both of their land to win the game. With the non-hostile one, if I try to keep on good terms until I'm ready to take them out (short of an alliance) is that going to impact me diplomatically later when I declare war? Should I try to trade with them or not?

Diplomacy is great. If you can't win a diplomatic victory, do what you can to avoid multi-front wars until you can afford them, at which point fuck everyone else.
So I would try and stay on good terms with your deader. Trade agreements, etc. But, more importantly, focus on diplomacy with your other neighbors so that when you ARE ready to go to war, you don't get completely surrounded by death.Steam: Gundato
If you want me on either service, I suggest PMing me here first to let me know who you are.

I'll tell you two creative ways of getting round it. Become whatever religion they aren't, incite religious rebellions, cause an uprising which will boot them out of their town and then invade yourself and keep the peace by taking it back for yourself. If your agent gets caught you'll get a diplomatic penalty but nowhere near as big as reneging on your alliance.
Alternatively assassinate your way through the clan til they cease to have any family left. If you navigate the family tree properly you could even marry into the family and inherit their lands after doing so.
