Been hooked again by Borderlands, mainly because I think it plays better on PC. Maybe some FoC MP as well. The Steam backlog whittling might continue as well.

Runic has said we'll learn the release date on August 31.

If it's not also released on August 31, I'll be pissed. Want. This. Now.

The Steam Summer Sale managed to completely blow up my backlog, which is now epic in size. But on the plus side I have enough gaming goodness for the next six months. At least.

Alright everyone, the insanity is back. There were rumors of an MP mod but then nothing for a while. Guess what appeared a little while back on Kotaku:

I just snagged this for PC thanks to the Steam Summer Sale and if they manage to add MP into this, I think it would be absolutely hilarious. That clip is nine kinds of awesome.

Picked this back up recently and it's consumed me. Why the hell did I never know the Mage was so massively overpowered? He's got this beam spell that simply kills every thing it touches. Max that out and throw in a steampunk golem as well and you are good to go. I love this game.

Wife and I watched Tucker & Dale vs. Evil last night. Fantastically funny. So glad we saw it.

Just watched this. Was laughing my head off within three minutes of starting it. Absolutely hilarious send-up of the horror genre. I think a double bill of this and Cabin in the Woods would be a nice way to spend an evening. It does a terrific inversion of the cabin in the woods/slasher genre and Alan Tudyk, as always, crushes it. The sequence with the wood chipper left me gasping for air. Really fun way to spend 90 minutes. Highly recommended.  thumbsup thumbsup

No idea if this is any good, but someone made a free remake of the old school space sim Elite.

Ive played it and wasn't impressed by it. You're better off playing Galaxy on Fire if you want a fun space sim.

Fired up Torchlight again this weekend and decided to try out the gunslinger chick. Eight hours later I was amazed at where my day went. I never realized that she could be very steampunky in terms of dress and weaponry. Basically she's awesome and I'm plowing through enemies again. I love this game.

They took away our used games on PC, and I haven't heard of anyone abandoning the platform for that.  I just hope that the console market has an impact on pricing like the PC market did.  Prices seem stickier on console games to me than they do on the PC side.

See I don't think this holds water. Until I can work spreadsheets and do my job while on m PlayStation, then the PC is used for far more than gaming. Ergo, I can use my PC for far more than just games. That bend said, BC for my 360 wasn't a big deal. Having two 360s die during the course of my ownership of the console IS a big deal. So the quality of the machine is far more of a concern for me especially considering the costs.

But if they do ban used games then I'm sticking with my PC and swearing off consoles.

Recently my gaming has been from 10 pm to 1 am the most so I'm definitely on. I'm currently gaming via Steam as my 360 is kaput. I'm on as whiteboyskim in both cases when applicable.

Beat Half-Life 2 and Episode One this weekend. How sad that I take a break from one game (DE:HR) and blow through two other games.
63  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Weekend Playlist -- 3/16/12 on: March 16, 2012, 04:51:28 PM
Going to try to finish off Half-Life 2 again tonight or this weekend. May pick DE:HR back up and hope the rest of the game doesn't piss me off as much as that first boss fight did.
64  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Playlist - 3/09/12 - Daylight Savings weekend! on: March 14, 2012, 12:54:27 AM
Actually have three games going right now. I have a replay of both Half-Life 2 (apparently I got the Orange Box achievements on 360 but not PC) and Psychonauts on Steam and loving both. Psychonauts is better than I recall but the story still isn't the strongest part. I also respect that it goes very, very dark at the most unlikely of moments. I've also made it to not-Hong-Kong in Deus Ex: Human Revolution and I'm on pause there. The first fight so soured me on the game that I'm taking a bit of a break.
65  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Weekend Playlist -- 3/2/12 on: March 03, 2012, 04:19:29 AM
Firing up DE: HR tonight again but that's about all my gaming for the weekend. Get to go into work tomorrow as well as Sunday (maybe) due to a massive amount of content that needs completion by midnight Sunday. Fun times.

69  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PS3] Assassin's Creed Revelations on: February 29, 2012, 09:05:33 PM
Having completed the game, I'll agree with the complaints on difficulty re: wagons and the glitches. No question those plus the lame tower defense and assassin stuff is just there to give you things to do. Upon completion I felt nothing towards the main the story. No elation, no frustration, no nothing. It was just over and that was that. Now, the finale involving Ezio, the redhead librarian, and the final flashback to Altair I felt was really well done. It didnt knock me out, but it felt like a good ending for all three characters. It felt like the right one too especially for Ezio. I'd recommend ignoring the side quests and plowing through the main story to just finish it but that's me.

Finished off Dead Space 2 late in the week, and it made it into my top 5 from last year. Holy crap was that thing entertaining. I also DL'd Deus EX: HR on steam as it was only $10 and thus far I'm liking it. It's a little crash happy for my taste, but overall it's a heck of a lot of fun. Also fired up Psychonauts again on steam and played through the first bit in the camp. Not as funny as I remember, but I did recall it being a bit slow at the start. Still fun after all this time. Although to add insult to injury, apparently I don't have the steam achievements for Half Life 2 even though I played through it like three times. I'm guessing I just never played through it on PC once the Orange Box hit so another run through will have to commence post haste.

I did, however, recently discover Depths of Peril courtesy of EdX's glowing review of it. Wow. It's Diablo but with competing in-town guilds (who will absolutely raid your guild if you're not all up on your diplomacy skills), and monsters in the field can, if left unchecked, form their own groups and really mess up your day. Overally, it's terrific. Thanks Ed!

Picked up Space Marine this week. Wasn't sold on it (Scottish Orks? Really?) until I shoved my chainsaw into an Ork's mouth then stomped his body into nothingness. I think I'm in love.

Managed to get my PC working again so I fired up Mass Effect on steam. Not bad overall. I can't stand the combat in it but I like the universe and appreciate the really hard sci-fi nature. Planning on plowing through this and Mass Effect 2 this spring and continue to cull my steam backlog now that my 360 backlog is finished.
74  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: Disk Boot Failure on Win7 on: January 30, 2012, 05:04:33 AM
OK so I ran the memtest today and it came back clean. I let it run for six hours this afternoon, it ran 10 tests, and all came back with a passing grade. So now I'm baffled. I can still try to pull one stick of memory then test, then pull the other, etc. but if the mem sticks are fine, I'm beginning to worry if it isn't my motherboard and/or processor. A few months back I swapped out the mobo battery just because I figured that might be it, but it never made a lick of difference.

Thoughts?

76  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Laptop vs. PC on: January 20, 2012, 05:57:01 PM
Alright guys I'm seriously debating whether to shelve my old PC and just get a top line laptop. I primarily write and game on my machine but I'm sick of upgrading and tweaking my rigs. Maybe I'm just getting old. Either way, I'm looking for thoughts from people who use their laptops for gaming. Screensize isn't an issue as I'll plug it into my current monitor. Thanks.
77  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: Disk Boot Failure on Win7 on: January 18, 2012, 03:48:42 AM
So this is what happens when you have a work laptop, three months filled with non-stop birthday parties, holidays, and crushing work schedules - you completely ignore your home computer and let it sit under your desk gathering dust. Fired it up tonight after all this time and here's what happened:

Bad checksum error - probably due to lack of use for several months. Hit enter and went straight into Windows. The desktop appeared along with my icons but the tray items in the bottom right did not appear. Also, to Vidiot's point, the HD makes a normal sound of fans whirring when it works as advertised. Such was not the case tonight. The only whirring came from my case fan and that's it. I was able to open a single folder before the machine froze and crashed out to the DOS screen with the aforementioned disk boot failure message.

My time is limited again at night this week but I have a free Saturday afternoon with everyone out of the house for a few hours. I'll run the memtest then if it will allow me to do so. Additional testing to follow though I suspect it's simply a bad drive. If that's the case, it's going to piss me off but it's a relatively cheap fix.
78  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Weekend Playlist -- 1/6/12 on: January 06, 2012, 06:16:45 PM
Planning on wrapping the storyline for Saints Row 3 this weekend. I absolutely love the insanity of it all. If I finish it up I'm also going to fire up LEGO Star Wars: The Clone Wars and see how that goes

Overall there's not a lot of games in 2012 that I'm interested in which is actually a good thing. It'll let me replay some from 2011 that I loved like Dead Island.
79  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Saints Row the Third on: January 04, 2012, 05:55:52 AM
I have tears streaming down my face. The mission is http://deckers.die or something like that. After a lot of combat you enter a VR world. Hilarity ensues. But after more combat, one of the most inspired bits of comedy I've seen in a long while occurs. My character's voice is the male angry Brit and his frustrations and eventual tantrum when you screw up is causing me to laugh so hard I'm crying. This rules.
80  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Saints Row the Third on: January 03, 2012, 03:44:10 PM
Holy crap is this game fun. I've been having an absolute blast terrorizing the good citizens of Steelport. Also the humor is killing me. I just about lose it everytime Zemos speaks (you know why) and the tiger mission had me howling. I had to pause it because everytime the tiger would swipe my guy I'd almost fall out of my chair from laughing so hard. "A F$&@ING TIGER?!?!?" LOL. Oh and the character creation is unreal. Next playthrough I'm going as ridiculous as possible. Right now that's limited to giving my character jet black eyes (which is just freaky as crap in the cinematics).
