Eh, all of them are good but I like the Original AoW the best. First love and all. If you get Shadow Magic, there is no reason to get AoW2 apart from the campaign because SM is like a standalone expansion which adds 2 races and some other things.

As for tips all I can say is that, for the Italian campaign at least, keep an eye on the month and year as you don't get a lot of time to complete the main objective. I beat it with two months (two turns) left on the clock, and that was with some good tactics and lots of luck.

I did manage to beat Ys: The Oath in Felghana. I was quite right about the boss difficulty escalation. The second fight against Chester is nigh impossible without either level grinding (in a game that doesn't really do level grinding) and abusing the invincibility frames on the earth bracelet. He's lightning fast, hits like a truck, has no weaknesses and barely provides any opening for you to hit him without getting hit yourself. He might be worse than the final boss if that one wasn't about three times as long.
The final boss was really well done, mechanically. The first and last phases were oddly easy after figuring out the patterns but the second phase more than made up for it. I was closing to giving up at some point but after about 1-2 hours of dying miserably I finally made it.

MechCommander. Managed to salvage a Mad Cat without resorting to cheesy tactics ... at the cost of Beast's life and Lynx is badly wounded. We will remember Beast's sacrifice, but a salvaged Mad Cat is a machine of destruction... well even more so than the some of the mechs heavier than it is.
But maybe it doesn't bode so well that after 4 missions 2 of my best pilots are injured, one pilot has died and all I have is MechWarriors fresh out of academy.

Just played some Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed online. 9 player 'Capture the Chao'/Battle Arena is chaotic as hell, but equally as fun. New patch has really helped players join games, it's great. I'd love to play some time with some RPS lot, maybe on a scheduled occasion.

Blood Bowl Geez, Louise I am pretty terrible at this game, it's a game rough getting in to.
Luigi's Mansion The aiming is kind of a pain but awesome game, currently 13/50 Boos hunted so far.
Ni No Kuni 63 Hours in and no idea how far in the story I actually am, there's so much to do though so it will keep me busy for quite a while.

I played a bit of Inquisitor, the self-styled old school RPG available on GOG. I bought it during the winter sale, despite the rather negative reviews and really, how bad could it be?
Inquisitor's stamina system is the single worst, most unfun game mechanic I have ever seen. If somebody gave me unlimited time and resources I'm pretty sure I couldn't come up with something worse. After just about ten minutes into the game I wished for the developers to be dragged into the deepest pits of the abyss.
Basically, every combat action uses up stamina, from basic melee attacks to casting spells (in addition to mana). However, every action takes up a lot of stamina and you basically have none, even if you invest in constitution. It does not regenerate unless you stand perfectly still and even then only about one stamina point per second. Oh, and it also does not regenerate during conversations or even looking at your character sheet or inventory. I really hope you enjoy the landscape or brought a book because you will spend more time with either than playing the goddamn game. It's a disaster.
While the actual inquisition aspect might be somewhat interesting, it's dramatically overshadowed by the incredibly poor combat. In the end, it's really just a worse Lionheart. Yeah, I just went there. It's that bad.

If you want me on either service, I suggest PMing me here first to let me know who you are.

I hear you cry "but you wake up after combat" sure, but boss battles will be the brick wall parties meet, you might as well equip for them.I am once again writing a blog, vaguely about playing games the wrong way

Playing yet a new city in Sim City 4. Why? Because I just discovered that by holding shift down while zoning, it doesn't try to ignore my beautiful layout and insert it's own bloody roads. No Sim City, I don't want it to look like that!!
Now I just have to get my balance out of the red.

Just started Dishonored.
I am enjoying it, but less than I expected. I love the setting and the blink power is really a nice touch, but it doesn't draw me in as much as I would like too.
Maybe i am not paying it right. i was going for a pacifist walktrough but it means reloading a lot and I ended the first contract with 2 dead guys and I am pretty sure i didn't kill anyone...
So now I am thinking, maybe i should play the game without reloading, trying to ghost it but dealing with failures.
Any thoughts ?

I've got Inquisitor lined up after i've dragged my way through Avadon: The Black Fortress. The solo area in Avadon nearly made me rage quit for good though. I'm playing a sorceress that concentrates on buffing and i spent most of the damn dungeon exploiting bugs in the game mechanics just to get through. Although after i got my companions back i went back to the dungeon and massacred EVERYONE to make a point.
Hit a Rock with Sherlock Holmes Snacks on a Slipper, I've reached a puzzle that requires at least a basic knowledge of the American Civil war, which i really don't have. But saying that instead of quitting and going onto something else, I'm actually reading up on a bit of history, so I suppose that counts for something.
Borderlands 2 is still going strong, at level 49 (true Vault hunter mode) now with one other RPS’r, i guess we’re about half way through ‘Big game hunt’.
I’m also getting my ass kicked once more in the RPS Frozen Synapse league.

Ah, Nalano, if only a knowledgeable and kind gentleman such as you would write a SimCity 4 guide for us peasants...because no matter what I do, I don't get any cool looking cities and I don't want to cheat.
Seriously, this game is harder than Dwarf Fortress.

And I like Dishonored too Drayk, but one thing I really hate is if your spotted you have no choice but to go lethal, as I don't want to keep reloading the game. You can hide sure but the AI is so bad that they stop looking for you after 5 seconds and return to normal as though nothing happened, so it feels almost like your exploiting it. At least with something like Human Revolution you could knock out enemies (yes I know lots of people hated the close combat in that game but I actually liked it)
