HOTLINE MIAMI - Ahem, Hotline Miami is pretty entertaining. I was expecting it to be much more punch-the-screen difficult, though. So far I've been able to complete the levels in about two dozen tries, which isn't even nearly enough to make it frustrating. The element of surprise is really the most deadly thing to have in this game.
I just hope it doesn't make a habit of crashing to desktop and leaving a stuttering audio loop behind, because this is the second time it's happened tonight. I have to restart to get rid of the sound.

Renegade playthrough of ME3 and oh I how I love Biotic Charge Vanguards. Focus on melee, shotgun and power recharge speed. Biotic Charge should take 7.5 seconds to recharge, mine is less than 2 seconds. Couple that with 100% barrier recharge and the typical engagement for me involves a femshep blur zipping around the map; charging, punching, shotgunning then charging off to somewhere else. Doesn't work great against bigger beasties like Harvesters, but I regularly lamp the shit out of Brutes and almost took down an Atlas until it cheated and instakilled me, the wee prick.
Much more fun than Infiltrator Shep, although with more death.

(it was first in the list so I assumed it is the original campaign. too late to change that now.)

I'm playing Hotline Miami and finding it infuriating. It's just so fucking hard! That first level with the dog - I must have replayed it over 150 times before I cleared it

I'd rank myself as a skilled player, usually building up my army steadily but with very minor losses. I've had no problem with AI enemies before but this one mission is just impossible with my strategy. According to a walk-through I read after failing for many times, the best way to beat it is to rush them as soon as possible. Otherwise they'll build up an army which is impossible to beat. I actually gave up at this point but I really hate the idea where you're in a big disadvantage and you only have few possible ways to beat it (rush the enemy, having heroes with specific skills etc.). Makes it much more of a puzzle I feel.
Also, Lukasz, just in case you're not aware, there is a HD mod for HoMM3 which works really well with my game (I've got the HoMM3: Complete from Gog). Being able to change the resolution from the default 800x600 makes it much better. Here's the link: https://sites.google.com/site/heroes3hd/

Sonic Generations is great, a lovely mix of gameplay styles if only it didn't keep locking up.I am once again writing a blog, vaguely about playing games the wrong way
04-06-2013, 03:44 PM #15268
There's actually one particular challenge (Seaside Hill, I think) where the game will lock up completely with a high probability. See this thread for more information. I experienced no crashes apart from that, though.

Got some mail today. The Walking Dead DRM Free (hugs) and StarDrive... requiring Steam.
DA FUCK?! I am so goddamn sick of disc versions of Indi games making this mandatory. If I knew, I wouldn't have bought it.

I didn't know there was a DRM free version of TWD. Why wasn't it included in the Humble?
04-06-2013, 05:22 PM #15271
No idea! All I can tell you is this disc version does not require Steam, or any use of the Internet. I had to check to see what you're talking about because typically Humble Bundles make a point of being DRM free.

I have tried so many space 4X type games, but with two all-night sessions under my belt I think Distant Worlds may turn out to be the one that endures. Good job, considering how much it costs. It is simple enough at the start, but holds the promise of increasing complexity. Most importantly, it conveys the impression of unimaginably vast distances.

Woopty doo! It was almost worth waiting the extra month for the boxed version to come out!

GRID 1 (new at GoG)
I've been playing racing sims for the past 10 years. At first I couldn't belive why anyone would want to play this shite. It took some time to accept it is totally arcade and then I had some fun. Also: hyper-coolness culture-shock.
Been playing Mechwarrior: Living Legends, as always. Multiplayer is still fine in Europe.

After watching a couple of youtube videos on EU4, I decided to jump back in to Europa Universalis 3. Playing as England. My Irish brothers had some trouble uniting their island under one rule so I decided to step in and help them a little. Now we are all one big happy family. Also attacked Scotland and made them my vassal. I still need one of their provinces though, so might have to declare war on them later on. Normally at this point I would detach myself from the politics of the mainland and concentrate on colonizing and trading, but this time I might do something different. France still has several provinces that clearly belong to us so invasion of Normandy might be the next step.

I sometimes buy disc versions of PC games because you can still get them cheaper than digital copies and they're pretty much all going to give you a steam key anyway. The discs I buy never make it out of the cases.
Example: Remember Me, cheapest right now is €39.99 in my region, maybe it's €32 if GMG have their 20% voucher going. I can buy a boxed copy for €23.99.
Now obviously with digital sales, Remember Me will end up cheaper than retail. But I'm just giving an example of why people would buy discs.
Second reason and much more common I'd imagine, would be that not everyone has the ability to download these games due to their internet connection being very slow or restricted. They might be able to log into steam and register their game, but they could never download it. There's a huge difference between sending a data packet with a 25 digit key in it off to Valves authentication servers and downloading a 15gb game. To those people, discs are still valuable."Halo is designed to make the player think "I look like that, I am macho sitting in my undies with my xbox""

Oh, and Company of Heroes 2 open beta started today. I just remoted to my home computer to start the download process so I can go kill me some Nazis when I'm off work.
