bioshock inf 2nd dlc - a bit of a let down, elizabeth's story is so muddled and confusing.
orcs must die - this game is pretty fun!

bnw, Wednesday, 9 April 2014 16:50 (seven years ago) link

I (and, ostensibly, my girlfriend, who mostly only plays the pinball stuff I bought for her) just bought a PS3 a couple of months ago, which I'm completely new to aside from crashing helicopters into gas stations in GTA IV at my brother's. So I've been excitedly hoarding games, since this seems to be the sweet spot between when previous-gen system come way down in price and when they go out of print and skyrocket. But I'm trying to be restrictive in my playing so that I don't play eight million things at once and fail to fully appreciate the varied experiences.

Althought I was completely put-off by it at first (complicated tutorials maybe shouldn't take place in the middle of combat under cover of darkness), probably 75% of my game playing time of late has been devoted to Just Cause 2. So much addictive fun, and great for brief, post-work mayhem sessions. Strangely haven't read or heard a whole lot about it outside of ILG threads, so thanks for that, y'all. Prior to that, I was mostly sucked into Skyrim, which initially impressed and then subsequently overwhelmed me with its breadth. I mean, I'm level 25-ish and realized recently that I'd completed somewhere pretty far south of 10% of the core game, so it feels like a thing that could just go on forever. I'll return to it someday when I'm ready to really dig in.

Other stuff in my current rotation:
Fez (not hugely into platformers but I'm really digging it; music and design and use of color are aces)
Minecraft (kinda don't know exactly what to do with it yet, but it's cool to mess around with)
Arkham Asylum (not crazy about the combat, but maybe I'm just not used to it yet; the beginning of the Scarecrow encounter was amazing)
Where Is My Heart? (cute, cool concept, good for short bursts)
Portal (just started this...the rest of the Orange Box is backburnered for the time being)
Deadly Premonition (not terribly far into it; definitely bizarre as hell but I'm undecided just yet as to whether it's my kind of bizarre)
Prototype (love it to bits; I think I'm near the end so I've been sitting on it for a little while to prolong the love...although I do already have the sequel)
Resident Evil 3 (revisiting after 15 years; controls are for shit but I'm building up anticipation to RE4)
Walking Dead (only played the first episode thus far but it was great and I'm looking forward to more)

I also have a ton of stuff that I've played <15 minutes of (The Saboteur, Tomb Raider reboot, Marvel Ultimate Alliance) that I'm looking forward to jumping into more fully soon.

Kinda want to make a (sadly & ridiculously long) list of the stuff I've acquired and get recommendations of what to tackle next.

GTA5 in the evenings, still searching for those hidden items
Or Lego City Undercover on occasions.

Any other time I struggle to find time or energy to play anything else right now, I'm trying to design and develop my own games and I find that a struggle in itself.

Games that I *should* be playing anyway...

Pinball FX, really really should fire this up more often
Rayman, not even installed this yet
Red Dead Redemption (still not bothered to attempt the final mission)
Fallout3, embarrassingly never finished this either
Fuel, after having to purchase new PS3 I'll have to start all over again.
Just Cause 2, dropped off the radar a bit, dip into every now and again to get that 100% status
Minecraft/FTB, my only reason for not playing this more often is its just too daunting. In terms of time wasting goes this is the mother of all. FTB packs have basically kicked this game into mind blowing status imo.

Drop soap, not bombs (Ste), Thursday, 10 April 2014 12:02 (seven years ago) link

picked up gta 5 again just to round off the epsilon missions. i was convinced there would be a big heist at the end of all of it, because ripping off the scientologists seemed to make sense and how else would i ever get the cash to buy the golf course etc. so the only one getting ripped off was me :( officially done with this game.

also just finished xcom enemy unknown which i loved to bits. besides it was just long enough to keep my interest through the whole thing.

not really sure what to go with next. ps+ gave me lots of options. i'll probably get going on tomb raider, as soon as i stop struggling to like pes2014.

sonderangerbot, Thursday, 10 April 2014 12:35 (seven years ago) link

dayZ and nothing but dayZ. the slow small little updates that come out every couple of weeks just make it that little bit more appealing every day. i try not to think that's there's no real goal or 'end' to it.

NI, Thursday, 10 April 2014 17:28 (seven years ago) link

Dude, FRACT OSC is out. It's fun, but giving me a lot of flashbacks to Myst, due to heavy puzzles with occasional symbolic language hints. You're exploring this long abandoned machine world and you restoring operation to a giant synthesizer that you wander around in.

As a reminder, FTL: Advanced Edition is a free content expansion for FTL. All current (and future) customers will receive this update regardless of where they purchased it. Prior to release, we will post detailed instructions on how to get the update from whatever digital vendor you originally purchased FTL.

New systems (clone bay??), new race, new ships, just lots more stuff, and it was released as a free sort of patch. It's a toggle option when you start a game, you can choose standard or advanced.

dragon's dogma was good fun, at its best early before everything becomes too easy, so i encourage you to not progress the story at all until you have been everywhere. one of the best and most unique things it has are the giant wandering monsters that really felt like epic fights, at least until my gang quickly got OP'd. helps if you resist the temptation of the broken pawns that are available early.

"Finished" Portal and Fez, loved both. Seems like there's still aftergame stuff for me to do, which is cool.

I'm a good way into the first God of War, and I can't be sure but I think I might kinda hate it. The brutal waves of super tough enemies are awesome, and some of the puzzles are pretty good, but creating Indiana Jones-esque deathtraps with a shitty camera and sketchy controls was the fucking worst idea ever. I've wasted so much of my playtime on failing to kill everything onscreen within a set time before falling to my death or being crushed or sliced up by shit that I can barely see in front of me that it's kinda become a chore for me to continue. I might just be hating the PS2-ness of it, though.

I've been surprisingly digging a lot of arcade-y stuff that I've gotten cheap from PSN recently. Super Stardust and Wipeout took me a little while to get used to but they're amazing once I'm in the zone. Just got Retro/Grade, which I haven't played much but which has an awesome conceit (basically a rhythm game disguised as a shooter that runs in reverse). The Space Invaders update also seems like good value.

This weekend, I hit 50% completion and the 100 hour mark near-simultaneously on Just Cause 2. Clearing a few areas in the game has become such a reliably perfect way to decompress at the end of the day.

xps I played GoW 1 for the first time... a year ago? Maybe two? Felt some of the same frustrations as you, but I'm still planning to truck on through to the others at some point. I can see how it all would've been far more impressive back in 2006, but some of those levels and dungeons are awfully designed.

What build you going for in KOTOR, Mordy?

Nhex, Monday, 5 May 2014 19:39 (seven years ago) link

i guess soldier guardian. tbh i'm kinda more interested in my bg2 half-elf cleric/ranger build (so OP apparently it's ppl's fave for soloing the game). (thought about playing a wild mage too.)

Streets of Rage 3
Bare Knuckle III

So BKIII is the Japanese version of SOR3 and it is WAY easier. This does not mean it is easy though, it only means it is possible to get through stage 1 without using a continue. American version of Streets of Rage 3 is one of the more difficult games I've ever played.

Finally got around to Subnautica (PS version) and found myself really enjoying it. That changed abruptly after the game glitched out on me and corrupted/removed my 20+ hour save game. Googled it and apparently that’s been a common issue for YEARS, still not resolved. Wtf, guys.

Anyway, game does the survival/building/exploration thing very well and the sense of dread and wonder as you roam the deeps is great. I, uh, unfortunately can’t recommend it.

To the Moon (2011). 10 years to get around to playing this - basically, visual novel - made in RPG Maker XP. Saccarine and sentimental as all get out, I can't lie, it worked for me. Great story concept, and not surprised they're trying to adapt it into an anime film. A sequel came out years later and the third part of the trilogy comes out at the end of this month.

Side question: is this the most notable RPG Maker-made game outside of Super Columbine Massacre RPG!?

Been playing a bit of Spiritfarer, coop mode (my friend plays as the cat), and am enjoying it mostly.

It's clearly a linear experience, dressed up to give the idea you're making choices, but the characters are interesting enough and I'm keen to see where it all goes. I do like the mini games for each room you build, the Sawmill one is so hard though.

I'm a big boat fan in games, and not enough games let me just sail around and maintain a boat. Not necessarily interested in combat or exploring islands I just want to do mundane tasks on a boat. Let me just scrub the deck all day long amongst the roaring sound of the waves please.

Just finished Psychonauts 2! It's fantastic. The PSI King level has to be one of the most beautiful platform game levels I have ever seen. But it's amazing how gross and horrifying it can be too (teeth level, glove puppet boss fight...) I do wish they did more with certain characters, but that's a minor quibble. And being able to explore all the locations and complete the side-quests at your leisure after beating the game is a nice touch.

Really loving The Long Dark. Survival game where you're dropped into the Canadian wilderness and have to scrounge for food, shelter, supplies, all that good stuff. Thankfully free of zombies and monsters and what-have-you, just gotta deal with the elements and the wildlife. Top notch if you're into the genre.

I'm in a PC adventure game mood. I recently beat Toonstruck which was great. I started Legend of Kyrandia but I don't like it so far -- it's very much a King's Quest clone, with similarly illogical puzzles. I got stuck in a cave, and it turned out that to progress you have to drop glowing rocks on every screen -- they go out if you change rooms while carrying them, but if you drop them they never go out. Riiiiiiight.

I also just discovered http://magneticscrolls.net which might become a huge waste of time.

Inscryption, which seems pretty great so far, but I think I've only just scratched its surface

finished Superliminal, fun puzzle game. presentation heavily influenced by Portal but the mechanics made it feel enough like its own thing.
playing Carto now, another puzzle game but a lot more simple, more of a chillout game with nice atmosphere & music.
