I've played several levels now with all four classes and I'm in love. I'm not too impressed with the class skills available for the Berserker, but throwing some Wolverine style claws on him is awesome. My Outlander just rips stuff up as well, and the fact that you can level the weapon from Krull is hilarious to me.

Didn't play much with the embermage, but I loooove the engineer. So many ways to bring death and I can't wait to get the mechs later on. This game, put simply, is the best $20 buy out there. Totally worth every penny and I'm never touching the Diablo franchise again. This game is fast paced, gorgeous to look at, chock full of awesome loot, and genuinely fun to play.

Torchlight 2. I'll wait on Borderlands for another year or two when I can get it plus all DLC for $10 on a steam sale.

Sleeping Dogs is the plan, though a second playthrough on Borderlands is awfully tempting. Know what else is tempting? Cranking up some olde schoole style platformers in Vessel and Trine 2. Been really curious about those for a while now and maybe this weekend is the time to try them out.

45  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [Movies] ... I'd never like to see again. on: September 15, 2012, 05:56:15 AM
I agree with Eyes Wide Shut. I was knocked out by it at the time, but I don't think it's aged well. Plus I was in a poison relationship at the time which made things way more awkward than they already were. Pulp Fiction is another one (to piggyback on the Tarantino thread) that I loved for a long time, but that has not aged well in my opinion. Also, as many know, I never took to Blade Runner beyond appreciating the aesthetics. Seen it several times to make sure I wasn't crazy, but I still don't like it.

As for movies I hated the first time and never want to see again, Sin City is right at the top of the list. Just hated every second of that movie.
46  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [TV] Doctor Who on: September 15, 2012, 05:45:02 AM
Note to how Netflix does streaming:

When Tennent's run ended, they closed out the arc with the usual monster sized finale. The next ep starts with the new Doctor (Matt Smith). People who actually watched the show will notice there are three specials missing in between. The first special isn't on streaming though it's available on disc (nothing of note except he gets a prophesy which he repeats in the next special so you can skip it). The second special is Waters of Mars and the last one is The End of Time Parts 1 & 2. You need to watch those in that order prior to season 5. Like I said, you're a ways off but wanted to give you a heads up sooner rather than later.

Also Blink is genuinely awesome. "You're not watching it either." smile

The show did take me up to the "are you my mummy" two-parter to get into it. It's just so very British at the start before finding its own groove. The last several eps of season 1 are good, and personally I liked Eccleston in the role. I thought it was great watching him have so damn much fun for once in his life. Tennent is my favorite of the three newest Doctors and Smith has, frankly, worn out his welcome for me. I'm curious how they're going to wrap up the new season and whether or not he'll leave at the end of it.

There's a rumor going 'round that fans are trying to get a campaign for Alexander Siddig (Dr. Bashir on Deep Space 9) to play the next Doctor. This would rule, IMO.
47  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Tarantino on: September 09, 2012, 03:29:11 AM
Reservoir Dogs stands, for me, as his best. I think Tarantino has gone to his own head with self indulgent fare, and I genuinely do not like Basterds. At. All. Liked Death Proof at the time I saw it, not so much a fan of it now (save the last half hour during the chase). In my opinion, he's so in love with his own voice that he's lost any sense of pacing that he had in Dogs and Fiction. He just goes on and on and on as though he's seeing just how long he can stretch something out to where it becomes unbearable, a fact he admitted to in an interview regarding the lunch scene in Basterds (where the evil Nazi and the girl meet and the Nazi prattles on for like 15 minutes solid). The scene did become unbearable, but not due to tension.

Anyway, that's my take on the man.
48  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Doctor Who 7th Season on: September 03, 2012, 03:14:32 PM
DVR'd it. I'm still in season 6 (last ep I watched was "Let's Kill Hitler") so I'm not quite up to par with everyone. Fantastic series though. Since this year is going to be shown in five episode increments, I'm going to watch them once I have each round DVR'd. As strange as it sounds, I'm actually much more of a Rory fan than an Amy fan. It probably stems from his nickname and how he earned it.

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.

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.

I've been working on my steam backlog but then they'll have an awesome sale and BOOM! Blown.

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.
71  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.
72  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.
73  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.

77  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.
78  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Weekend Playlist -- 2/24/12 on: February 28, 2012, 05:51:46 AM
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!
