I finally got around to playing this and it was super fun. Awesome level design. Except I played for low chaos so I never even got to jump on someone and kill them. I'll definitely have to do another playthrough at some point.

I still want a stealth thief game without any supernatural stuff.
122  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / So I watched a horror movie tonight on: January 26, 2014, 04:18:34 AM
Whenever my wife goes away on business, I'll usually take the opportunity to watch a bunch of movies she's not interested in, like violent action movies and horror movies. But I don't like those horror movies that make you want to claw out your eyeballs and go into psychotherapy like the ones PR_GMR watches slywink. I like scary sci fi movies and fun slasher movies. A while ago I saw the trailer for "You're Next" and made a mental note to track it down at some point. Tonight seemed a good a night as any.  

If you don't mind a low budget horror film with a sense of humor I'd definitely recommend this one. It's got some gore but nothing terrible. The story is basically about a family reunion that is interrupted by masked killers. Other than that I'd recommend going in blind.

After watching it I found out that it falls into the category of "mumblegore" because a lot of people in it are part of the mumblecore scene, yet it's a horror movie.

Oh by the way I also watched "Dredd" tonight and it was surprisingly good.

That makes no sense. The UN would not care about this case, nor would this person get worldwide support. If it was a case of civil rights they would say so.

And by the way the issue is not that the person is allowed to have the operation, it's that the state has to pay for it. A person outside of jail has to foot their own bill.

Yeah, this is a tough one. It's kind of hard for anyone without gender identity disorder to know what it's like. It does seem hard to call it "medically necessary". I would think "medically necessary" = "life threatening".

In the Aliens special edition. She had a daughter before she left on the Nostromo trip, and by the time she returned to civilization in the beginning of Aliens, her daughter had already lived a full life and died of old age.

Ah, right, I do remember that.  I guess I can speculate on when this takes place then, but if I'm going to play it, probably better to just go in blind.

I do find it kind of funny that calling in Titan is sort of like calling in a care package. From the video though, it looks like the process is a lot quicker and from what I understand no one can steal your Titan, so it limits the downsides.

Besides Purge, who I am fairly sure exists (but maybe not) I figure the rest of those are just stock photos to make it look like GT is some kind of big operation.

Finished this this weekend. Not too many people played it, huh? They sold a million copies, so someone did.

I had a similar experience to the other people in this thread. Story was engrossing, but gameplay was kind of nonexistent outside of the stealth mission. Surprising coming from Heavy Rain which had some basic puzzles at least.

I do love me some Ellen Page, though. Even as a videogame character she's adorable.

141  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Squeezing in GOTY candidates on: January 09, 2014, 02:54:48 AM
Just updating this to add a few games I have finished up recently

The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds
I finished this game and I enjoyed it. But maybe because I don't have any nostalgic ties to the original game it didn't really blow me away. It was fun, but it didn't strike me as GOTY material.

Metro: Last Light
This, on the other hand, jumped into my top 10. Absolutely beautiful looking game with incredible atmosphere. This is a game you can take your time with, soaking in the world, or if you wish, you can ignore all that and just play. Sometimes it's moody, sometimes it's scary, and sometimes you're surrounded by gunfire and explosions. Many of the levels (often laid out with alternate paths) can be done with pure stealth or with guns blazing, your choice. The problem with the game for me, however, was that the story in the last 1/4 of the game just got a little too goofy. I think they really could have streamlined the ending sections of the game and it would have been much better for it. I played this right after Metro 2033, a game I was pretty ambivalent towards, and was really pleasantly surprised. Probably also the game with most close-ups of nipples in 2013 I suppose  icon_confused

I started up to the demo, went out into the world and into a dungeon, and was promptly one-hit killed by the first monster. Guess I will have to read a little closer about where I'm supposed to go smile
145  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Someone's been using my Netflix account on: January 03, 2014, 01:55:12 AM
Yeah, and I checked with Netflix and they won't do a single device reset. So, all devices have been reset and I'll have to reinstate them one by one.

Oddly enough, the Xbone didn't require a code or sign in, so it must have some way of linking up with Netflix via your Microsoft account.

147  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Someone's been using my Netflix account on: January 02, 2014, 10:11:59 PM
I logged into Netflix today and noticed it was recommending me a lot of movies featuring African-American actors. Looked closer and my recent views showed a whole lot of movies I never watched. Looked at my viewing history, and it shows someone watching entire seasons of "How I Met Your Mother" going back at least to mid-December (it doesn't go back farther than that).

I changed my password and I'll have to see if that knocks the person out, or if they've got a device set up, in which case I'll need to call support and see if they can ID it.

What concerns me more is how this person got my password. It's a password I've used a lot, although now it's mostly used on low security things.

So this was pulled from nearly all online retailers yesterday. Word is that the license was up and it was more economical to stop selling than renew. Haven't seen any confirmation of this theory, though.

He's managed to keep his craziness out of his movies for the most part (the exception being Battlefield Earth, I guess), and he's a pretty damn good actor who makes some really interesting role choices.

Tom Cruise wasn't in Battlefield Earth.

152  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What Collector's Edition purchase do you regret most? on: January 01, 2014, 08:43:39 PM
If I had a good place to put them I would consider getting a collection of nice collectors edition figures, but I don't, so all I ever get is the standard edition or on occasion a mid-tier edition that comes with some extra in-game stuff.
153  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Squeezing in GOTY candidates on: January 01, 2014, 06:42:01 PM
I spent the last week of the year trying to squeeze in as many short GOTY candidates as I could. Here's what I played:

Gone Home
I think the less said about this game the better, or else you start getting into spoiler territory. It only takes about 2 hrs to play, so about $5-$10 is all you'll want to pay, but I thought it was an experience well worth having. It's really more of an interactive story rather than a game, so just keep that in mind if you don't care for that type of thing.

Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons
First of all, this is a beautiful game. I spent a lot of time just staring at the scenes. Another "experience" type of game, clocking in around 3 hours. It is a game, however, notable for it's two character control mechanic and some very clever platforming. Maybe I'm not quite co-ordinated enough, but I often found myself messing up which stick was controlling which brother. Again, get it for the right price and enjoy it.

The Swapper
A fun puzzle game with an interesting story and unique visuals (clay models scanned into the game). A nice challenge, although I did wind up having to look up 2 on youtube so as not to get stuck - one had me saying "duh", but the other one was a bit on the "what were they thinking" side. If you like 2D puzzle games that actually have a story, another game worth playing.

Papers, Please
I totally get the point of this game, but I was surprised it topped so many GOTY lists. Reason being that the part of the game that creates its length, the sort of text hunting minigame, is really tedious. The very interesting part of the game, the part that gives it its weight, is the decisions you have to make whose consequences can never be predicted. To me, the passport stuff felt like a crappy iPhone game. I think it is a very good game for what it does, but because of the boring nature of a large part of it, I don't think it should be so highly rated. I got a few of the different endings, but I finally stopped after my third ending on Day 29 because I just didn't feel like checking passports anymore just to get another ending.

Not GOTY, but such a clever game and a real joy to play. Rarely does a game find so many ways to put a smile on your face. All the way to the end the developers were still finding new ways to incorporate the Vita's features, so it never got boring. The paper-inspired graphics were also inspired and the site is one of the best conceived integrations and use of collectibles ever.

I haven't actually finished this one yet, but have gotten a taste. Unlike the other games here, the story in this one looks mostly just for fun and the gameplay is the real star. It's very clever so far and I'm sure it's only going to get better.

So, overall I don't think any of these competed for the top spot in my GOTY, but I'm glad I played all of them, and they should all be available now at pretty attractive prices.

I usually have a bad problem with hand cramping, and I'm able to use the XL pretty well. It's not perfect, but a worlds better then I do with the Vita. Wouldn't mind trying a grip with it, but I haven't sought one out like I immediately did with the vita.
