That review made it sound really awful.

Nice to see this back, I missed it last week. Playing KB Warriors of the North. Typical KB game. I love them myself.It's fun to get some dragon units and go on a rampage. And the game is so pretty. Some of the quests are rather clever. Some are frustratingly vague, or won' open up til you do something else in the game, but I'm having fun clearing out the map.

Kotor 2 with tsl 1.8 mod. Great game!
Kings Bounty Warriors of the North.
System Shock 2-only took me 14 yrs to finish! I got stuck back in 1999. Thank you GOG
Kingdoms of Amalur. Solid game. Sad what happened to Big Huge Games.
Deus Ex Human revolution. Great game. Liked it so much I thought it was a little short. Didn't think the boss battles were quite as horrible as many others, but the second one was quite a pain. Doing the DLC now.
Finished the DLC Missing link. Surprised there was no more extra content for Deus EX HR.
Game of Thrones RPG. Fun game. Wish it had done better. Combat was a bit bland but still enjoyed the game. Don't know why they made every ending sad though.
Venetica-fun action RPG. And I got it for free on a New Egg deal
Torchlight 2-pretty fun, but just when I got going it was over, and I don't replay games.
Risen 2. Decent, but not quite up to PB specialness. Something was missing
AC3-worst game of the series by far imho, but I still had some fun playing it. Don't get the hatred for the Desmond parts. It also ran like a pig on my modest system.
ME3-most fun I've had with a game this year.
Tomb Raider 3. At least as good and maybe better than ME3!
X-Comm, Enemy Unknown. Continues my roll of excellent games. 3 in a row now. Really enjoyed it.
Dishonored-another great game, will play the DLC for sure when the price comes down.
Max Payne 3. Hated the check point save system at the start but got into it more as I went. They nailed the vibe perfectly imho. Sorry to hear this tanked in sales, I had a blast.
Vampire the Masqurade: Redemption. Too funny, thought I was buying Bloodlines. Kept wondering when I could change my clan. Duh. Oh well. It was ok for what it was.
Bioshock Infinite. Rather disappointed and let down by this game.

I just played and finished this a couple of months ago. I thought it was fine and failed to see what all the gnashing of teeth was about. Had a fun time. I thought that was the point. Then again I tend to be more forgiving and less critical that most on gaming forums.

Finishing up Kotor 2. Good game, but ready for it to be over. Anxious to start Kings bounty:Warriors of the North. I have really enjoyed and been hooked on all the previous KB games.

I tried going back to KOTOR II with the restoration mod recently, but it just felt kinda boring.  Maybe it's just basis of comparison with modern games, but all the environments looked so sparse and dull, and the initial set of missions on the mining facility weren't terribly compelling.

I'm getting near the end of Kotor 2. I have really enjoyed it. Stay with it. The mining level stuff is by far the worst part of the game. It gets much better after that.
167  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Weekend Playlist -- 1/11/13 on: January 12, 2013, 03:06:12 PM
Continuing on Kotor 2 with TSL mod. Finally got my light saber and am laying waste. Also really into the story.
168  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Weekend Playlist -- 1/4/13 on: January 04, 2013, 06:48:55 PM
Kotor 2 with the tsl mod. Enjoying it so far.

My gaming rig is in sick bay. I will be in the corner with the shakes until Monday when I will hopefully get it back.....
171  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Weekend Playlist -- 12/14/12 on: December 14, 2012, 05:06:21 PM
I will be finishing up Dead Island. Simple game, but I really liked it as much as anything I've played this year. Now I have to look at the back log. Is the Kotor 2 fan patch complete and working? If so, I might pick that. Still have to play the new Deus Ex too.

I hope I don't miss out on too much story from going SP.

You mean co-op I presume instead of SP. Since they are keeping both modes, SP and Co-op, completely separate, you have to choose one or the other, I still think SP will be as good as 1 and 2.
173  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Weekend Playlist -- 12/7/12 on: December 07, 2012, 09:36:31 PM
Really Ceekay? You will bounce around all those games? That would drive me insane. I'm a one at a time kinda guy.
Continuing with Dead Island. Hacking Zombies is not getting old in the least. Just wish they gave you a bit more ammo for those damn rhino like rushers. And I wish the game was a bit less buggy.
174  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Weekend Playlist -- 11/30/12 on: December 01, 2012, 07:35:15 PM

As a one at a time gamer for 23 years who created his first backlog with the 2011 winter steam sale I worry about this. But with a price point of $10, I don't feel like I'm wasting too much money. Plus, with so many publishers in trouble, I feel there could be a drought at any momment. Then again, there are a lot of cool kickstarter stuff as well..... So far, all is still good.
176  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: I love sales on: November 26, 2012, 03:59:35 PM
Most games I've bought over one sale since these things started.

KOTOR 2
Dead Island GOTY
Darksiders
Kof Amalur
Spec ops the Line
Syndicate-the new one
The Darkness 2

Total cost $44.83
I decided a while ago a game has to be under $10 for me to get it. I have a big enough back log now to hold me over and every game will get there eventually. I don't play multiplayer so that's not a concern.
I was hoping Risen 2 or Mass Effect 3 might be up but I guess maybe at Christmas. I have more than enough to play now.

Into the third act of Dragon Age 2. Still having fun.
178  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Weekend Playlist -- 11/9/12 on: November 09, 2012, 06:04:25 PM
Dragon Age 2. I guess I'm more easy going than a lot of gamers. I see now what they mean about all the reused areas and not much variety and I just don't think it's that big a deal. I do like to have some discovery in my RPG's and this is basically just going from arrow to arrow, but the rest of it is so good I'm having a lot of fun with it.

If you like DA2 give Divinity2: TDKS a try (the re-released one). It's the game that I wanted Dragon Age 2 to be

Quote from: Greg Wak on November 02, 2012, 04:04:41 PM

Had to do something I almost never do, give up on a game. Anachronox. While I liked parts of it, I never knew where to go or what to do next. I could just never follow it.
However, I was able to pick up DA: 2 in a sale. While I don't like the camera and battle seems way too fast, I love everything else about it and am having a great deal of fun.

Played DD2 TDKS when it came out and finished it. Agreed: It's a great game.

Playing anachronox, as I missed it when it came out. Having a little trouble getting into it so far.
182  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Weekend Playlist -- 10/12/12 on: October 13, 2012, 02:39:32 PM
Dishonored looks so cool it's almost strong enough to break my will on waiting for price drops.  But I'm not bending and will probably play it Christmas 2013 after a steam sale.
Into the meat of AC Revelations now. Really love it. Don't like tower defense so I don't let my awareness get into the red. Problem solved. I kinda miss the picture puzzles but not the code wheel ones.
183  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Playlist - 10/05/12 edition on: October 05, 2012, 03:30:01 PM
Allright Soulchild!!!! Another O's fan!!! I have been a fan since the Cubs flop in 1969 and the O's choke against the Mets. I don't have a very good feeling about facing Yu Darvish. But this is not a sports thread.
I'm continuing AC Revelations. Getting into the flow now. Really hate the captains that run and hide and the whole beating the Den to reveale and unlock the map bit. Otherwise having fun.
184  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Mystery GOG countdown (now general GOG discussion) on: October 03, 2012, 05:20:53 PM
Spycraft was great! And imho unlike any other game. Well worth playing. I always wanted a sequel.
185  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Playlist - 09/28/12 on: September 28, 2012, 03:32:21 PM
AC Revelations. Enjoying it.
186  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Weekend Playlist -- 9/21/12 on: September 22, 2012, 03:51:14 PM
Ultima ix was nice enough to corrupt completely on me. And the game was so much not fun I was happy to quit. So on to the back log. AC: Revelations. Just getting done with the tutorial stuff. I really love these games. But I have dinner out tonight and Bears game tomorrow so not a lot of gaming time.
187  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Weekend Playlist 9/14/2012 on: September 14, 2012, 05:08:00 PM
Ultima IX. Really does lead you from place to place. And side quests don't seem to advance your character. But it's an RPG, so I'm still having fun
188  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Weekend Playlist 9/7/2012 on: September 07, 2012, 04:26:54 PM
Never hunted a flag in any AC game. Couldn't resist picking them up if I came across them in my travels though.
Playing Ultima 9 this weekend. First computer game I ever played was an RPG and they are still my favorite. So even though it's a 13 yr old game and looks and plays like it, I'm still having a lot of fun.
189  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Weekend Playlist -- 8/31/12 on: September 01, 2012, 02:46:50 PM
Finishing up Alan Wake. Can't wait to see the end. THen What ever I decide from my back log. Just got Ultima 9 from gog. Maybe that.

Dark Souls on the PC, never finished on the 360.  With the graphic fix this game looks great and is probably the best version, I can't stop playing.
Darksiders 2 - Stuck in some arena and can't find my way out.




How hard is it? The comments most people have made I must admit leave me intimidated.

I played quite a bit of Alan Wake this weekend. It's a blast. Can't wait to see where the story goes.
191  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Playlist 8-17-2012 on: August 17, 2012, 05:08:58 PM
Still on Dungeon Siege 3. Enjoying it.
192  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Weekend Playlist 8-10-2012 on: August 10, 2012, 08:43:22 PM
Dungeon Siege 3. Picked this up cheap in the Steam sale. I have no idea how a dev can decide a camera system like this is okay, and the game is a way simplified action RPG, but it does scratch that itch for me. Glad I didn't pay more than $5 for it though.
193  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Thief 4? on: August 08, 2012, 05:32:58 PM
I'm somewhat surprised this title seems to be having so much difficulty.  They have 3 good blueprints on what made the series so go. While I am slightly bummed that thief 4 might not see the light of day, it's easier as I'm in a cycle where I play things 6 months to a year after they come out anyway. it's just so much cheaper.
194  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PS3] Dead Space 3 on: July 27, 2012, 07:53:20 PM

195  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Steam Summer Sale 2012 Discussion on: July 08, 2012, 11:23:46 PM
So are we all just assuming it will start on the 12th now? The silence is driving me a bit loopy as I really look forward to this.

I've never tried a ftp MMO, but these devs may get me to. Stalker was my favorite series ever.

What the hell??? Shouldn't they have started by now??? Waiting for the 4rth or something???
198  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Old school Dungeon crawl: 'Legend of Grimrock' on: April 13, 2012, 06:30:40 PM
your choices seem pretty sound to me. I avoided the dex mistake but kinda wish I had gone with ice instead of fire. Ice freezes characters solid and it's nice to have them out of commission for a bit. Fire may have some nice bonuses later on, but I'm not that far down the tree yet.
199  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Old school Dungeon crawl: 'Legend of Grimrock' on: April 13, 2012, 04:35:13 PM
Tilt, I fully understand all of that and knew what I was getting into in most aspects. If I just hated the puzzles and "forced strafing it would be one thing. The fact is I love 80% of it. it's the other 20% that drive me crazy. And I do look up the answers to the puzzles I get completely stuck on. There is no way I'm not getting to the bottom and out, I just have to grit my teeth now and then.
200  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Old school Dungeon crawl: 'Legend of Grimrock' on: April 13, 2012, 03:03:11 PM
This game is as frustrating as I feared it might be. Had to look up solutions to three puzzles already, and spiders are the bane of my life right now. Lots of repeating. That being said, I love the game concept and the production values are top notch. I have always been a big sucker for skill trees. I just hunger to get to the next cool skill.So I will put up with all the reloads and being a save bitch every 3 feet.
