I'm finally playing VVVVVVV
Given that you seemed to be a fan of Super Meat Boy, I'm surprised you didn't get on with Nimbus. To me, it felt like a more ambitious and gratifying version of that game. It took me a few minutes to adjust to the controls, but I think the game is awesome. Some of the levels are very Rube Goldberg-esque in their execution.Seeing as Gemini Rue won't run, and the other games don't do anything for me, the Indie Royale Launch Bundle has turned out to be a waste for me.
I haven't completely written Nimbus off, but it didn't grab me in the way SMB did. The thing about SMB is that everything about the game is so precise and it works so well at what it does. I didn't get the same feeling of precision, or indeed speed, with Nimbus.
Or another way to put it, Nimbus feels clumsy, but SMB makes me feel clumsy (in a good way).
weekendwarrio.rs - We've got more games than time...
I "finished" Recettear, which is to say I made it through my first game. At this point a wide diversity of options open up, from survival modes to endless modes to enhanced new game modes. Unfortunately, it's something of a "Plants Vs. Zombies" effect. When you place a bunch of bonus material at the end of a long and ultimately somewhat grindy game, I'm usually so tired of the game by the time I get to them that I've no real interest in them. Maybe I'll come back, but for the most part the whole thing has kind of lost its charm, and the new modes look too easy to exploit anyway.
Instead, I'm back to playing Bronze (need to catch up with MD!) and am dabbling a bit with Minecraft for the first time in ages.
Buying games you aren't going to play is a waste of money (no matter how cheap they are). Forcing yourself to play games you wish you hadn't bought is a waste of time. Both are best avoided.
Getting increasingly annoyed by Far Cry. Now the Trigens are invisible! Now they fucking jump around! Now it takes more than one headshot to kill the mercenaries! Now all the mercenaries all have fucking rocket launchers and always know where you are! Finally came to a head when the game expected me to take on a rocket launcher Trigen with half health in a tiny ass hallway, so I cheated. It's not something I normally do in a game, but there was no way in hell I was going to make it past this part, so I cheated. Nothing gamebreaking - just infinite ammo and all the weapons - but I did feel a little guilty. At least, until the next area, where any strategy besides sniping everyone from across the map would get me killed. I'm really just waiting for this game to end, but it keeps dragging on and on and on far longer than it's really welcome anymore. Even the awesome parts (I can tow a jeep behind my patrol boat?!) are ruined by the poor design choices (oh right, it's impossible to steer and everyone has a fucking rocket launcher)
Even the game seems to know it's dragging on too long. Carver says things like "God, I hope that was the last security panel" and "As soon as I can, I'm getting out of here... I'm not even getting paid for this shit!" I hear you, bro.
I am replaying first Splinter Cell,its still good after nearly 9 years ^^
Terraria, still. Now had 85 damned hours of it.
The game was rushed, end of story. Crytek admitted as much. It feels like nobody actually playtested it.
I'm playing Renegade Ops and Dirt 3. Monitoring for Skyrim and The Goddamn Batman to arrive in post and for Saints Row 3 to unlock.
Kill me. On top of that, the game crashed my computer (forced a restart) and is now giving me bizarre sound glitches. It's grueling in the extreme, but I'm so close...
Crytek, all engine, no game.
All the Skyrim talk has made me reach out for Morrowind again. I go back to it every 1-2 years or so, find myself enchanted for a few weeks and then slowly get more and more annoyed with the massive gameplay flaws it has. This time however I'm armed with a mod that changes the levelling, with the hopes that it doesn't feel like I'm gimping my character with every single thing I do. Got all the standard mods I've used previously as well to fleshen out the world and the ambience, and even mucking about with some custom race stuff this time for the sheer hell of it.
A quick question regarding the game: is there anyone around the starting towns (Seyda Neen, Balmora, etc) who'd purchase illegal goods? The Wilderness mod added some whale blubber which sells for riches, and right now as a poor newcomer my moral compass bends enough to get rid of that thing for some change.
Give me steam and how you feel to make it real.
You're terrible. Far Cry was awesome. I still have the box and case right next to my keyboard - the 5 CD edition.
Also in Balmora can't you unload stuff to guys in the Thieves Guild??
Oh my god it just won't end... I have to admit, the volcano level was pretty badass, but Far Cry has more false endings than Lord of the Rings. And yeah, I wouldn't call it terrible... It's just a hell of a lot longer than I anticipated. I wish I'd spread this game over several weeks/months, but I'm determined to beat it within the next few days now.
Since my computer decided to play nice with Max Payne, I played an hour or two of that in between marathon Far Cry sessions. It's totally mindless, but I like the overblown narrative style. It's practically the polar opposite of Far Cry: ugly, simple, good voice acting, decent story... And while I might get bored of slow-motion dives, I'll never get bored of watching Max's ridiculous death throes.
Edit: There's two volcano levels, I was referring to the first one with the jeep.
Long overdue perhaps, but I bought Outcast a while ago from GoG and I'm just getted started on it.
