The Banner Saga is teaching me that my judgement is crap. Just lost a rank 5 character by making a bad call.

I am methodically trying to finish some games from my backlog.
While I am half way through Remember Me by now (such a wasted opportunity, it's a pity, gorgeous game), I spent an hour on the side finishing Zeno Clash. It was ... ok. The world was weirdly interesting indeed, but the fighting was a bit too frantic, with too many enemies at the same time usually, for it to be accomplished. Most of the time I was just walking around them trying to perform a few punches and run away. I will start the second one next week to see if it's any better.
I am putting UnEpic aside for this week, though the itch is there!

Like most of the world, I'm pretty obsessed with Nidhogg. But I'm so bad at it. Even when a fighter is stripped down like that, I'm too uncoordinated to mount effective offense!

Prime World: Defenders
Seems like the many other RPG lite Tower Defense games (Kingdom Rush, Defender's Quest). The big feature is that you collect 'cards' which are towers, spells and upgrade cards. You can forge cards into 1 card to level it up and you can fuse card/towers of the same time to enable access to higher upgrade levels when playing a map. You also get coins which you pay to unlock talents and pay to use the forge. So far a story mission has not been impossible to over come. Side missions that are enabled for you to play to grind coins and cards, the 'hard' versions have been impossible with my current collection.
Seems ok so far as long as the grinding does not become to required to much. And to be fair, the random maps are maps you have played but with different tower positions enabled along with different totems (bad guy buff towers that you can kill) and arcanes (super buff tower locations). Its in a Bundle Stars bundle currently. Worth the couple dollars you will pay for it.

Played the first episode of the new Walking Dead. Spent a lot of time moping about you know who and caved a few walkers skulls in. Good times.

Started the second chapter of the ArmA3 campaign: Adapt
So far, I like it. Starting to put me in charge of the squad, but the objectives are still tight enough that it isn't just "make your way across the map, do stuff". If I wanted that little direction, I would pub with random strangers :p
Only one hub mission in so far, but I like it. Not sure how the camp missions work since it said I can do them "on my own time" but I only get a few minutes between spawning and briefing and rerming
And it looks like BiS removed the good scopes from the camp inventory so as to force me to use a red dot. I realize that is probably more realistic (not every soldier is supposed to be the designated marksman) but god damn it, I like being able to conserve ammo rather than use my "line up the sights, spray a few shots" approach.Steam: Gundato
If you want me on either service, I suggest PMing me here first to let me know who you are.

I gave in to my dark urges and plunged into The Secret World. I guess most intelligent things to be said about it has already been said at this point, so all I can do is repeat the common knowledge that 1) the combat is pretty shit, 2) the writing is hilarious and 3) the investigation missions are occasionally brilliant and rewarding. The second two points are enough to make me want to keep playing for the moment at least.

Relearning AI War is a real treat, especially with some of these new, really cool mechanics. Hacking is a fantastic mechanical solution to certain problems in the original design, and opens up a wealth of new strategic possibilities. The new ships are interesting, and the AI has clearly been even further improved over the years - it's genuinely frightening how clever and unpredictable it's gotten. 400+ hours and this thing still has new tricks up its sleeve.
Also, still playing through XCOM: EW and still really enjoying it. I suspect I'm closing in on the end, though I can't be sure since this is my first time through. Normal is proving to be a bit too easy this time, so the next time I try I'll have to give classic a shot and probably get my ass kicked all over the place. Then again, whats XCOM without getting your ass kicked, right?

Playing XCOM: EW classic semi-ironman (there was one instance where I saved the game right before going on a covert op, loaded up the game the next day ... and lost the operative because I just totally forgot. So I deleted the game and let Steam Cloud Save get the old one back for me. Lost operative aside, it might actually come back to bite me--I almost lost two super important folks in the Exalt mission for one thing and for another I got a tougher random mission this time around when I caught up to the round of abductions I did right before noticing I'd forgotten the exalt cell--a mere day or two in-game time after said mission).
It's super awesome, but I haven't tried the MEC and gene stuff yet. I haven't really had the spare cash to do it. :PI think of [the Internet] as a grisly raw steak laid out on a porcelain benchtop in the sun, covered in chocolate hazelnut sauce. In the background plays Stardusts Music Sounds Better With You. Theres lots of fog. --tomeoftom
You ruined his point by putting it in context thats cheating -bull0

Remember that MEC gets obsolete rather quick while Gene, while expensive, levels well

Finsihed Black Flag a couple of days ago and probably going to get the DLCs for some more pirating and jumping on roofs.
It's a great open world game with a solid story, but I agree with the complaint about too much following and eavesdropping missions.
Next is Zeno Clash.

Let me just run my freak flag up a little higher by saying I absolutely loved almost all of Black Flag's eavesdropping/tailing missions and could happily have played more of them.
No, seriously. They've plainly got big ol' flaws, I'm not denying that (way too much emphasis on one correct route, to start with), but actually being able to work out the twists and turns on the fly, keep up with the target and pull off the whole ahahaha-I-can-hear-your-every-word thing successfully gave me some of the biggest thrills in that entire game. And while I did have problems I seem to have had far less than most (vocal) people playing it on this forum, at least. I remember multiple times where I caught myself thinking "Aren't these meant to be rubbish? Aren't I supposed to hate the game at this point? But spying on people is awesome."
Not to mention unlocking free dancers (and they cost sod-all anyway) makes half of them pretty much a formality. But then I still liked the missions even when they were a formality - I liked Black Flag's story and even at my most cynical ("Tish, pshaw, this is all nonsense, my good man") the writing was still generally great and made the conversations worth listening to. So, yeah. No getting rid of/cutting down on the eavesdropping or tailing, Ubisoft, ta. Pretty much the best thing you brought back from the first game, to be honest.

I didn't mind the eavesdropping missions, at first, but as they got longer and more complicated I started to get annoyed by two things: 1. It was impossible for me to play and listen/read subtitles at the same time and 2. Checkpoint system turned the whole thing into a bit of a slog and replaying the same sections all over again got a bit annoying.
The following without listening was much more fun for me.

Beat Castlevania: Lords of shadow this weekend. I don't remember the last time I felt so mixed about the game. Most of it is pretty satisfying even if the combat isn't quite up to other spectacle fighters like bayonetta it's still enjoyable. Great variety of enemies and the environments were largely well realised (if a bit drab at times). But the camera is fixed in position for each scene in a manner that greatly annoys me, the game is littered with completely pointless and long cutscenes (at one point there was a mechanism I needed to put a stick in to turn and the camera zoomed in on the already obviously glowing and 5feet away stick for 5 seconds). Platforming is a mix of middling and poor and isn't helped by the camera. Overall a good experience but its flaws are easy to see.
Broken Age was completely lovely and I didn't have the too easy puzzle problem as for once with these games I got to the end without having to think of looking online for some obtuse puzzle solution.
Megabyte Punch I picked up in a bundle and had a good time with, it's very much smash bros meets metroidvania and I can appreciate that. Intuitive and not too easy. Combat and platforming both feel good and the customisation options allowing you to pick from extra abilities or passives is a really nice system. Art style is unique but can make some of the environments repetitive really fast and the plot/characters are very much afterthoughts but well worth a look.
Hearthstone still addicts me.
