Beat the first 4 and Conviction is sitting in my backlog pile.

Command and Conquer 1. Only one I played.

So I finally got to the point in AC3 where the game opens up. Had my first naval battle, invaded my first fort. So the game has it's hooks in me now, I'm liking it much better. Still nothing as cool as the tomb runs, which I really loved, but at least I'm having a good time.

I think there is quite a difference between climbing the old north church and the Roman colloseum!

AC3 As an AC fanboy, I have to admit this one isn't grabbing me quite like the others.  It's taking it's sweet time getting to the open world part, and climbing around Boston doesn't seem as natural as in the Middle East and Rome. But still, I'm just getting into it.

Risen 2. About 80% of the way through.

Risen 2. Enjoying it. Typical PB game, and while that's not for everyone, I love them!

Dishonored and Max Payne 3. Been a good sale so far. Got X-com last week. Don't think Bioshock Infinite is going to make my $10 limit. That's okay, it will at Christmas. Same for Far Cry 3.
129  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (07/08) on: July 12, 2013, 06:13:19 PM
My steam rule is $10 or less. Nothing for me on day 1, but got X-com today! Don't think Bioshock Infinite is gonna get there this go around, so I'll wait till Christmas.

Torchlight 2. Simple, but quite fun at what it does.

Civ.

Shouldn't the steam sale start Thursday? Seems comparable to last year.

Don't get my hopes up, sir!

133  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Playlist - 7/05/13 - Independence Day Weekend Edition on: July 05, 2013, 06:50:43 PM
Torchlight 2 and some Telltale Walking dead. Talk about completely different.
134  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Telltale]The Walking Dead on: July 02, 2013, 01:06:07 PM
I just started this game. Wow. Has my attention early. Really well done so far. All I want to do is protect the little girl.
135  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (07/01) on: July 01, 2013, 10:11:11 PM
If the Steam sale starts Thursday I will probably buy something this week.

Spec Ops-The Line. First FPS I've played in a long time and while well done, it reminds me that I'm pretty bored with FPS's. Don't think I'll play another anytime soon.

actually you still haven't played an FPS in a long time, since that one is a third person shooter slywink Tongue

I suppose. But I spend so much time in cover just staring at the crosshairs it still feels like a FPS to me.

I do wonder when developers will realize that the results are in, and people do suck online. Without any type of constraint, chances are high that this will turn onto a major gankfest.

Agreed big time. I got excited when I read Stalker because I love everything Stalker, but there are just too many griefers on line.

My rig is back up and purring!!  So I'm slogging it out in Venetica. Due to my hard drive crash I lost my saves. So I'm grinding away to get back to where I was. Just have one area left to get there.

I hope you fare better than I did Zinfan. I got about half way through and had to quit due to difficulty. They just keep making it harder and harder that at some point it stopped being fun for me. I know what they want me to be able to do, but I'm not good enough to do it.
141  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Weekend Playlist -- 6/14/13 on: June 14, 2013, 05:41:15 PM
Sob!!! My rig is down. Bad hard drive. No games for me this weekend. New drive and a reinstall. The opposite of fun.

Might be 2016 for me then. I don't buy a game till it gets to $10 on PC. It's fine. I still have plenty of fun stuff to play.

There's ways to improve it without resorting to arbitrarily locked animation systems. There's plenty of ways now to combine need for execution, without the clunky locked systems that those games employ.

You say clunky and I say brilliant.  Guess I am alone on wishing for a game that mixed Skyrim and Dark Souls.

You obviously got a good handle down on Dark Souls combat that gave you a fair amount of success. The game would be a blast if I could do that. There are other things they could do to help Skyrim and the other Elder scroll games. Get rid of the damn auto leveling. Get rid of the need to be able to go anywhere on the map from day one and have success. Have some very, very tough enemies that could only be defeated by high level characters having exotic equipment they either discovered through arduous quests or arcane difficult crafting. Bethesda, as has been said, are the only people who could make fighting a dragon routine and boring. But this would be a radical departure for the series and will never come close to happening. Also, they sell millions and millions of these games and print money so they have every right to tell me to shut up. Sounds like I hate the series but I don't. I play them through and complete all but the most obscure stuff. But each iteration has been a little less exciting than the last, and I do agree that combat could be a lot more exciting.

I'm recently replaying Skyrim (quit earlier due to bugs) and the world design is simply the best I have ever seen in any video game.  The combat system is lacking though (Bethesda just doesn't get it even after so many Elder Scrolls games).

Wouldn't it be awesome if Skyrim had Dark Souls combat? Or Dragon's Dogma combat, for that matter.

Not for us non twitch players it wouldn't. While I enjoyed most things about Dark souls I had to give up because I never got good enough at the combat.
148  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Official Review] Alan Wake on: May 31, 2013, 05:46:43 PM
Can't say about the motion sickness but I played the game last year and enjoyed it. It does use check points and a couple of areas can be frustrating but besides that I had a great time.
As to the price drop, it's mostly just old. Most games get cheap eventually.
149  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Playlist - 05/31/13 on: May 31, 2013, 04:33:22 PM
Had to give up on Dark Souls. To much twitch. I got the hang of it against run of the mill types, but they just keep upping the ante and it became not fun. So I went back to Game of Thrones. And back to fun, which is nice.

Dark Souls. Trying to find a way to beat the Black knights and the Gargoyle

Hey Glycerine, thanks for the reply. I guess Canuck just wanted to snark at me. While knowing my way around the computer a bit, I have to admit the DSfix directions had me a bit intimidated, so I'm trying to get along without it. Funny, what I thought was a bit of stuttering was the game trying to show me I was very slow as I was running around with 100 max of my weight-duh. Started a new character-bandit, and things are pretty smooth. I have never, ever touched a controller in my life, so starting now would be very awkward. I seem to be fareing okay with MK although I had to look up a lot of arcane controls. Thanks for the help.

I think I just discovered your problem.

care to expound on that? It was pretty much unplayable any other way.
153  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Dark Souls Coming to the PC! on: May 20, 2013, 06:45:39 PM
Well be careful what you lust for, I guess. Waited for this to get under $10. People weren't kidding when they said this is hard. Man do I suck. And I am repeating a lot, just without the reloads. But I'm also hooked on the stupid thing and really can't stop playing. I don't think I have ever played a game this relentless.
The 30 fps cap is also annoying. Yes I have read up on the fix but it sounds kind of complicated and not without it's own problems. So I set mouse sensitivity to zero and got used to the rest of it. Don't know if I can hang with the whole thing, but I probably will. I let out cheers when I get through some of the nasty parts.

Wow-tough weekend for you!

I started FEAR 3 this week, but I'm not having a lot of fun. pretty bland and seems like it's just whack a mole. No save anywhere is really annoying as well. I'm going to fire up Game of Thrones instead. I think that's more in my wheelhouse.

I can second Jaysemon's opinion as well. Really enjoyed LA Noir as well. Never got tired of driving around 1950's LA. It was fun solving all the crimes. I thought the game was well done.

Shaqnews just gave this a terrible review. For basically all the stuff from the first game that he didn't like. I have to say the complaints are valid. The map is frequently not very accurate in terms of paths and quest markers. There are a lot of cheap deaths in the game and you don't dare stand up to mobs. I know the ram guys from the first game drove me crazy for a long time. But if you don't fear the mobs then to me you have no tension at all. Games that are super easy to me are not as fun. While I recognize all the negatives, they didn't keep me from enjoying the game.

Good point. Never played SS but in SS2 those darn chimp noises were pretty scary especially in the early levels.
