4 hours in Portal 2 (world^H^H^H^H^Hyear's end is closing in!) - a bit underwhelmed so far.

Well, wer'e off to a great fucking start with Batman: Aspiring Chef. For some god-damned reason there isn't an option to change the language, so I'm being forced to fiddle with some stuff to make it be on english (even though I have steam set to put every game on english). What if I don't want Joker's shitty spanish voice? what if I want to hear mark hamill?

Nope, it's an issue with the game not featuring the options it should (not even on the steam properties).
Also, now that I've managed to put it on english it decides to crash as soon as that mural painting on the start of the game renders. Fucking A.

- Edit Launcher.ini located in Steam\SteamApps\common\batman2\BmGame\Config folder- Search for [Launcher.CultureMap] section
- Put a semi-colon before each line in this section except "default=Int" and "en=Int". This section should now looks like:
- Save the file
Now your launcher and the game are in english.

Penultimate level of Sacrifice was a ramp up in difficulty. Two enemy wizards, one Stratos-based and the other Pyro; fuckall souls for me initially and put under attack immediately after opening cutscene by Stratos-wizard who had troops ready summoned; accidentally guardianed my Hellmouth (5-soul beastie) to my altar; got caught in many, many tornados; Pyro-wizard loved his Warmonger, I fucking hate Warmongers; hit a scripted trap early on which surrounded my then meagre force with Yetis and Flurrys.
But after 60mins of intense fighting and 30mins of steamroller-ing I had the victory, so now it's time to bring the noise to Marduk (he is going to fucking destroy me) and finally beat the game after all these years. I'm going to need the Rocky soundtrack on loop for this.

Having great fun with Blacklight: Retribution. Quite the nice online FPS! A brief first stint of this game excepted, I haven't really actively played this genre online since the days of Call of Duty 2 and I'm kinda wondering why.

World is still here and I completed Shogun! Double bonus. Now exhausted though.

I gave Snapshot a second and third chance, but no deal. Skipping a level brought the same frustration as the previous one. This game desperately needs a time-rewinding mechanic.
Closure provides more entertainment, as it utilises its base mechanic very well. Though I quit on a level with rolling boulders that was way too dependent on chance.
The Binding of Isaac is not the game for me. I could tell as much from the demo, and the full game doesn't sway me either.
TB was not exaggerating when he said Shank 2 didn't play well on m&kb.
This bundle is not one of my best purchases, to put it mildly. On the other hand, I'm enjoying Mark of the Ninja much more after this.

er, I seem to have just started a new game of Far Cry 2... I guess I was missing Africa already.
21-12-2012, 05:30 AM #10815
That said, the shooting in this game is much smoother and the stealthing elements and takedowns are much better than FC2. If anything else, it's more of the same as it's predecessor.

It does feel more like Far Cry 2.5, I'll give you that; but I do think that the enhancements (like the stealth, the corner-lean, outpost, and wildlife mechanics) make it a better game than it's predecessor.
I'm really enjoying it, and honestly the only thing I miss from Far Cry 2 is the African setting.
I'm surprised you don't like the hunting; for the first couple of hours in the game, the hunting was all I did! It feels very different and fresh to me. The Hunter's Instinct syringe and the 'double damage to animals' one are incredibly useful when going after some precious skins.

Just started FarCry 3 as well, while finishing off Sacrifice. I'm with the people who dislike the hunting, mainly as it's just a crafting system (and worse, pretty much a non-optional crafting system) and those are not for me. I can see the game is going to be lots of fun once I have all the things that I would have liked to start with (like being able to carry more than one weapon) but I resent having to put several hours into the game to search for wildlife in order to reach that point. Especially as pirates are scattered all over the place so me chasing down a goat can quickly lead me into a hail of AK fire.
And fuck everything about no-quicksaving. Whoever thought that was a good idea is now titled Prick Extraordinaire.
It's early days yet but I still prefer FC2 and I don't see that changing. In FC2 my HUD was clean, my map was real, and I didn't have to make progressively bigger diamond holders. The shooting was the same quality and, while I like the stealth of the new game, the stealth in FC2 was more rewarding and felt more realistic.

47 hours wow did you do most of the side missions? I've just got to the South at start of Act II after about 12 hours.
Question - are Armourer missions the only way you get new weapons unlocked or does the game give you a few more later? I did a couple of weapon convoy missons at the start but haven't had any new weapons for a while as I've been happy with my MAC 10 / hunting rifle or shotgun / RPG or LMG load-outs. Starting to worry I might get out-gunned later.
I've started to appreciate the voice acting too, the hardboiled mercs particularly are really well done. I really liked the everybody-dies way that Act I concluded, very fitting with idea that you are basically just an amoral thug for hire playing both ends against the middle.
Great moment last night when in the junkyard area, thinking I'd cleared it, and jumped in my seat when I walked into a shack looking at my tracker for a diamond and was sucker-punched by the last guy alive who was lying on the floor. gut-shot and groaning. He sat up and shot me, took my last 3 health bars before I could react. Cue buddy rescue by the Charlie Sheen look-alike guy who helpfully cleared the area of one wounded man for me. Cheers bud, I owed you one but too bad I still screwed you over later on and went to help the Underground instead. Shit happens, blame it on the malaria.

I've started, and it has some really wierd performance pits.
"look at all the snow and lightning effects, isn't this wonderful?"
"Yes it is game, yes it is"
"wait, what, are you looking at the ground? "
"LOLNOPE 13 frames baby!"

Two ways to unlock guns in FC2:
1. Do the gun shop missions where you destroy a convoy. Unlocks 3 guns at a time and then the appropriate gun upgrades once you've made the purchase.
2. After the tutorial (!) add this line "-GameProfile_AllWeaponsUnlock 1" to the FarCry 2 launcher (or launch options in Steam), without the quotation marks. This will unlock all weapons available on that map (so no map 2 weapons on map 1). Yes this can be construed as cheating but after finishing the game once I figure you can just play it as you want.
