Been playing some Don't Starve, and I'm genuinely impressed by the unexpected depth of the game. It's fun, it's creepy, and it generates a great "survival game" feel. I've been deliberately avoiding just about all information about the game, and playing it completely blind, but I do find there's one thing I can't figure out: how the heck do I get wooden boards? I have logs, I have sticks, I presume I have to make boards somehow but I can't seem to figure it out. Any help?

Boards are in the materials tab, but you have to research them before you can build them using the research machine thing.

Without going into spoiler territory, how much do the other characters change the game? That is, should I restart with the scientist or would it be better to try someone else. Are the construction trees different for different people?

Dead Island: Riptide
It feels like it's held together by duct tape and prayers. It never starts at the first attempt. It's also one of the most immersive games I've ever played.
This is strange because it's full of non-sensical gameplay systems and quirks. Something always pops up on the screen, the containers respawn, you pay workbenches to fix and upgrade your weapons, the weather changes in about one second...
I don't mind any of it.
It does the whole loot-and-quirky-weapons thing a lot better than Borderlands. The exploration is on par with Stalker or The Elder Scrolls. It's very well balanced. There's always something new to discover or a new quest to take on. The challenge system and the continuous events are fucking amazing, as I'm always working towards something and the rewards are extremely generous. It feels like I reach Nirvana when after a couple of hours in the wild I return to the base with gifts and get a gigantic XP boost.
On top of that I love the slow pace and the combat. I suspect the sluggish movement is a dealbreaker for many, many people.
I'm going to preorder Dying Light and Hellraid.

Came back to Borderlands 2 just to get stuck in an area (Something "Cauldron") without being able to find the exit, until I remembered that I can just quit, save and continue and start at the entrance to the level. So basically I was saved from a bad level design by a bad save system.

Borderlands 2 with some work comrades. Its fun and I do find myself loving the gun designs and humour of the game here and there but my sessions seem to be getting shorter and short as I find myself getting bored between story quests.
Also started Warframe after hearing some good reviews. Just past the tutorial and it reminds me a lot of MassEffect multi player,

I can't be sure, but saw no hint that the trees would be different.

Started playing Dishonored, stealthy and non-lethal of course. The first proper mission is gloriously long! Loving the world and the complexity of the levels.
At one point I got spotted and thought what the hell, murdered four guards at the same time before reloading. The sword fighting seems quite beautifully fluid. Might have to do a murderous speed-playthrough once I finish this one.
Oh, and they should totally have used British voice actors.

I just tried a ridiculous strategy and it worked:
Don't build any base buildings as Soviets in a CoH2 skirmish. Just spam conscripts and, if necessary, call-in units.
At one point I had three groups of three conscript squads each - Oorah! Molotov! - and while they don't last long under pressure, they're cheap as fuck, there's a million of 'em and they can outcap and therefore bleed the Germans for resources.
It was a 2v2, and I took the top half and my teammate did the traditional thing and took the bottom. At no point did I not have more or less all of the top, whereas my teammate was having troubles keeping 50% of the bottom, so I saw vehicles earlier than I wanted, but far, far later than the Germans wanted - we're talking 15 minutes without a vehicle, and 22 before a tank. By the time the tank came, I'd already been able to call in four T-34/85s because I had not spent any fuel on anything except conscript upgrades.
The MG42s could handle one or two conscripts, but not when you have so many and can just outflank 'em and Molotov from all directions. The scout cars and halftracks lasted about two seconds because the enemy would run them into my conscripts and then three AT grenades would go off at once. At the end of the match I had 105 deaths (to 207 kills) but didn't lose a single Conscript squad, so they were all vet 2 or 3 and thus that much harder to kill.
Mortars? Oorah and steal the mortar. Because I had the initiative the whole match it was hilariously easy to deal with the enemies as they came. Germans work best when they can dig in somewhere - but the sheer amount of flanking you can do with 7+ conscripts makes it nigh-impossible for them to cover all the bases. And of you lose 'em, who cares? They are cheeeep

Well strats that work in 2v2 rarely work in 1v1, but good job breaking the game nonetheless.

Ok, it feels like a well-made flash shoot-em-up but there is a problem - it's rather boring and repetitive in my opinion, almost all stages should have been at least two times shorter. There is no real fun in the gameplay itself and in the scripted sequences, the only fun is from ridiculous boss-battles and firing ray-gun. All in all, a quality game for nostalgia-platformer crowd. Played for an hour and I doubt I'll touch it again.

I'm staring blankly on the screen not knowing what the hell should I play in this fine Sunday evening. I played a bit of Fallout 2, earlier. I'm curious of how much 'experience' does it take for me to get that powerfist off that guy after I win the arm-wrestling contest.

I've been playing the first 6 hours or so of The Witcher 2 and I'm not sure how I feel about it.
On one hand the graphics are mostly gorgeus (Though I really dislike the way they do shading, it's too noticeable), the combat is way better than the first game's (But I miss combat styles) and the story is decidedly less silly.
On the other hand I hate the quicktime events (Specially those in the minigames), the cutsceney bits are poorly integrated (Hate it when an execution move seems to teleport me and the executioned to another section on the map, just to come back to where we were originally), it's way less intuitive on almost every regard, it has poorly made mandatory stealth sections, and the autosave being broken has fucked me over a couple of times. There's something else that puts me off, but I can't quite put my finger on it.

The stealth sections in Witcher 2 are just moronic and completely unnecessary. I had to quicksave my way past nearly every one of them.

I seriously don't know what they were thinking, you need just one minute playing one of them to see that they DON'T WORK.
