    I'm having a long anticipated day off and playing The Walking Dead. Had time for the first three episodes, will see when I get an opportunity to finish the season.

    As everyone has been telling me, it's really good, especially all parts with Clementine in them. My main - and only, really - gripe is THE FUCKING QTE:s! Pure. B. S. I had to replay two particular sequences near the end of episode 2 a whole bunch of times because of arbitrary button reasons that had nothing to do with my decision-making. Stupid that a game otherwise quite excellent is afflicted by this classic trope.

    A secondary problem related to the above is that at least one of the "make an important choice, NOW!"-sequences didn't really show me that I had two options until after a second or two, by which time I had already clicked buttons since it all felt so urgent. Nothing catastrophic happened that time, but if the game is going to give me crap for that decision later I'm going to get pissed, since the reason I made the choice was being unaware of it being a choice!

    Otherwise, I really dig the persistence of your actions. I know some decisions are not as meaningful as the game leads you to believe, but I don't really want to know the technical details. It feels as if I'm making some sort of mark on this world, which is excellent and reality can stay outside for a while thank you very much.

Shame there's no co-op in 4, that would've been an incentive for me but I'm pretty sure I'll end up buying it anyway when the right deal comes along.

    Interesting that there are weapon unlocks for SP, does that mean there's a SP loadout screen on Battlelog or does it just mean you find the weapons you unlock on the floor in missions, as in Hotline Miami? Thanks for the info, I'm surprised by how little I know about BF4 considering BF3 was and still is the only competitive multiplayer shooter I play now.
    Odd question, but did I do the helicopter mission with you?

    Yeah its a shitty mission, I only got to be gunner once of the 5 times I played it, and by god I am a terrible helicopter pilot

    More Batman AO. I completely nerded out after the *spoilers* fight with Bane and you end up playing as the Joker retelling the tale of The Killing Joke to pre-Harley Quinn Harleen.

    As a Batman fan I love this game. So much. Probably too much.

    I've now completed the Missing Link content in DXHRDC. I just realised: those cloaking soldiers would be a lot more effective if their cloaking and decloaking wasn't accompanied by the sound of air raid sirens.

    Also, the Missing Link boss fight was more amusing when I decided to play it lethally. Spoilers: Step one: EMP grenade on the robot. Step 2: Sniper bullet through the glass. End boss fight. Well, technically I still had to dispose of all the other dudes as well, but I wish all bosses went down that easily.

    You helicoptered with me! It only worked out when I learned to pilot the thing (the trick was to do as little as possible, ie. mostly just hover).

    Ahhh yeah. We also snipered together, but I failed because I often shot too early.


    :aye:

    Fallout Tactics.

    On a mission 11 where you have to kill a leader of supermutants. AI in this game is not existent. npcs rarely move and if they do it is pre scripted. so fights include my snipers slowly eroding their health out of enemy's range. no setting up traps, no tactics really...

    Still playing that EUIII game with England. I've colonized the Caribbean and large parts of North and South America. Economy is going strong, and I'm catching up in both tech and military. I could look towards Europe again in cca. 100 years (it's 1530 atm).

    When not subjugating savages, I'm playing Spelunky. The number of times I've thrown the damsel into spikes, it's just sad. I'm terrible at it. :)

    Really? I have such fond memories of that game and it being really dynamic. Hard to believe that it's been so long since it came out.

    Playing Tomb Raider(2013) right now.... I'm almost ashamed to say that I like it quite a lot... The level design is somehow very interesting eventhough you are railroaded through most of them. It just features some pretty stunning environments and I'm a sucker for that kinda thing. The documents you can find around the map are actually really interesting... They remind me of the Bioshock 1 audio logs so that is a good thing I guess

    It's biggest flaw was not being a "real" Tomb raider game. but on it's own, Tomb raider, is a a very good game.

    What I'm playing these days?
    These days I'm playing everything and nothing at all. I'm sorting through my catalog and trying different games from different genres, games that I got from bundles and impulsive sales, to see if something will catch my interest. So far nothing and I don't know if it's "old age" kicking in or I'm just trying the wrong games (and that there's a good reason I didn't play those games too much till now).

    I just finished Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons. It was a rather sweet interactive fiction game, the story, even if it has nothing original, is well told, the interaction is interesting, but the best part is the world, which is gorgeous and very imaginative. Some moments are touching and on the whole, well worth the 4 I paid last week. Great soundtrack, too. It took me just under 3 hours to complete.

    Back to DmC.

    I don't know why I'm buying games anymore.
    Battlefield 4 online simply isn't working. It refuses to connect 95% of the time, and when it does it keeps crashing or the sound cuts off. The beta was flawless.
    At least the campaign works but it's a shitty COD clone with 0 polish. Still a million times better than BF3's and BC2's.

    *starts preloading CODGHOSTS*

    BF4 Multiplayer: Fun times

    Batman: Shitty Voice Acting: I do like the story thus far, even if it feels a LOT less thought out than the previous Arkham games

    Batman: Finally Another Fucking Asymmetrical Multiplayer Game with an Emphasis on Stealth: Gave it a run through. Wanted to be a mook, ended up getting stuck as Batman for a round. Was fun, got a significant chunk of my side's Intimidation and we won. I definitely agree that the Elites may be a bit hard to balance (pretty much the entire time the elites were ignoring the other team and just staring up and shooting at us), but the game is fun. Still prefer Splinter Cell though, and looking forward to Blacklist-That-I-Get-With-Video-Card-On-Monday

    The thing I've liked about arkham oranges so far is that all the characters feel like rougher versions of themselves. I know this has been played out before (both in batman, and without, in watchmen and kick-ass, with different tones) but I like the atmosphere of the batman universe where everyone feels like they're just people in costumes, half making it up as they go along and using the city as their personal wish-fulfilment playground, with the darker edge being that countless people actually die because of it. It's a rougher, less professional atmosphere all round, and I dig it.

    Just beat Bully. The amorality of GTA maps wonderfully well to teenagers, and this is probably my favorite Rockstar game I've ever played. Well worth the $2.50 Steam sale purchase.

    Resident Evil 6 - Chris campaign

    THIS GAME IS FUCKING AWESOME!
    I'm playing on the easiest difficulty and with cutscene QTEs off. I also read this handy guide, since the game doesn't teach you anything.
    Everything explodes, the gore is outrageous, the graphics are awesome and the performance is very good.
    I have no idea what the hell is going on but it's so much fun! It's the kind of game where level 2 already features enemies the size of a house.
