I doubt anyone does, but if there are any Pokemon players out there with Black/White/B2/W2 there is an event going on at Gamestop in the US, EB Games in Canada and a bunch of random ass places in Europe giving out shiny Dialga, and in the coming weeks Palkia and Giratina.

I've been playing a lot of Tactical Intervention since its Steam release a couple of days ago. It's made by one of the original Counter-Strike creators, It's really nice. You can level up earn money buy more weapons, equipments and even attack dogs. There are still classic modes like saving hostages, planting the bomb and there is even a map with cars on a highway. Where you have to protect the VIP and escort him to a location.

It's Free to play on steam right now, i suggest you give it a try especially if you are a fan of Counter-Strike.

Been getting back into some God of War. It's a very fun game and I look forward to playing parts 2 and 3 when I'm through with it. And might get Ascension somewhere down the road.

Playing Outlast. Undoubtedly the scariest fucking game I've ever played. Can honestly say I'm not enjoying it, even though it's brilliant.

Not finding the new Amnesia all that scary tbh. The original had me not wanting to press forward, but this one hasn't given me the same scares. It's really easy now because they removed the sanity and looking for oil. Now it's just a really easy stealth game with some creepy noises occasionally. But then again it is from the makers of Dear Esther, so I didn't have high hopes to begin with.

Here's why I think I wouldn't like that game. According to my quick search of what it was, you don't have weapons, it's survival in that you just run and hide away from stuff. For my survival horror taste, it is better when your character has at least some power. A lot of other survival horror games use sparse ammo as a check for power to the player if they have guns available, as opposed to FPS where heaps of ammo are lying around and you can usually just pump out as much fire as you want. Resident Evil 4 was that way from what I remember, guns and stuff but you had to be careful with the ammo. And I liked that one. Dead Space as well to an extent but there were times you could go completely macho in that game for short periods. Which I also have no problems with.

Dead Space as well to an extent but there were times you could go completely macho in that game for short periods. Which I also have no problems with.

That's why the game works so much better as a "survival" horror than games with weapons in. You'll always have some kind of power, even if it's a knife or crowbar. In Outlast you know that you can't beat the enemy, and that makes encountering any enemy hugely frightening rather you headshotting every iteration of every enemy without giving it any thought. Resident Evil 4 was not a survival horror, it was an action game where swathes of enemies came at you while you laid waste to them. I remember tons of ammo being available. I never run out in any of my play throughs. Dead Space was mildy better, but ammo rarely ran out in that either and while it was very tense at few points did I feel unsafe or unable to defend myself.

But yeah, completed Outlast yesterday and it's a brilliant game, through and through. The sense of helplessness and terror never lets up.

Probably my favourite section of the game, which when I played I'd almost ran out of batteries for the camera so my play through here would have been pitch black for much of it. Probably not fun to watch though.



Probably the best bit according to most people.

Yeah like I said it's been a while... All I remember from that game is running out of ammo and being chased by fuckers with pitchforks I would imagine you play much more survival horror than me and believe me when a game gives me a gun, I'm used to going Chuck Norris mode on someone's asses. Probably why Dead Space feels sparse ammo wise to me.

It seems cool, and it seems like an actually scary game but I don't think I'll try Outlast. Just not very compatible with my usual enjoyable experience

Will probably buy outlast when I am done with Amnesia, shouldn't be long now i think I am already nearing the end O.o

I agree that the new Amnesia isnt as scary as the older one but i had some quirky moments with pigs getting stuck behind stuff which made me think they were not there and then just blindy running into them. It's that kind of little glitches that make for the best scares lol.

Oh there are definitely moments in the new Amnesia, but in the old one there were points where I was like "fuck this, I'm out" and had to take a break or I'd break. This time around, not one break has been taken. It's still scary, and the atmosphere is there (the sound design is even better than the original) but it's just not that scary. How far are you through it though? Are there any moments like the water bit from the original? Like really unique sections of horror? Because all I've had is basic enemy avoidance.

No sadly it doesn't get a lot scarier, you do encounter the water monster thing again but i wont spoil anything about what does or doesn't happen. I've already finished the game, took 5 hours and i am generally not a very quick player, i tried to do it pretty slow. I'm starting to think Outlast would've been the better choice afterall. What I do like about it thought is that if you have played the first Amnesia you will sit and wait for something to happen all the time (at least I did) but so little happens that I was constantly like "And now the scary is going to come!" but it never really came like in the old one =p

GTA V, and I'm enjoying the heck out of it. I've only done around three missions, and I've put almost six hours into the game. Considering that the missions take less than minutes or so to finish it, the driving and exploration is so good I'm just tempted to treat the game as a life simulator. Not to mention that I unlocked the movie theaters (one of the films was a spot on parody of pretentious art films), and I haven't listened to the talk radio stations yet (which are hilarious in past GTA games). It looks like I'll be playing this one for a long time. Until Ken Levine releases the first BioShock Infinite DLC, any way.

I admit it, I wasn't really a big fan of GTA IV, this mostly being the fact that, as a game, it was pretty drab. The Mission design was repetitive, the combat was terrible (not quite as bad as GTA PS2 entries, but nowhere near the likes of Gears or even Uncharted), the driving felt wonky, and the game was just plain dragged down by attempts at realism. I did like the story at points. but it just felt drab, and felt fundamentally flawed mechanically. It just wasn't worth it for me.

I'm surprised it took this long for someone to mention GTA V The hype & initial reaction has been unbelievable. $1 billion sales in 3 days?!

I haven't played it yet but my copy just arrived in the mail today (the game was banned here so i had to order it online). From the reviews i've seen/read and the comments i've got from friends who've played it already i'm pretty sure i'm gonna love it. I've been a big GTA fan over the years but I had the same issue with GTA IV that i just found everything boring & repetitive to the point I didn't even complete the game. I was hoping with this new one that we'd get a bigger, grander GTA San Andreas, & it looks like it's exactly that

Ditto. Looking forward to getting it. And I found out yesterday the codes are back to manual controller input; the cellphone idea of IV was a terrible idea on whoever's part.

FIFA 14 on pc. enjoying it, although my squad has a chronic problem with offsides. one of my midfielders gains possession of the ball, takes a step forward, and my strikers are already lounging in lawn chairs and mixing gin and tonics in the net awaiting the ball.

Brilliant writing, amazing story.

Brilliant writing, amazing story.


If the gameplay wasn't so clumsy and the area of vision so small (compared to the resolution of Baldur's Gates and Fallouts around the same time, for example), it would be hard to match. The story is great, and even better is the level of detail put into crafting the setting. There are numerous little gems hidden throughout the game, from NPCs to item descriptions. Come on, you can even equip new teeth for Morte and teach him more obscene taunts. The companions are hilarious and touching, and the story folds on itself in a masterful way. And I just love the Planescape setting, how it's a hub for all things freaky from the various D&D worlds and then some. I used to play this NWN server set in Planescape, Gatecrashers. The game didn't quite manage to grasp the overwhelming, crowded and twisting nature of Sigil, though. We only caught a glimpse. Still, one of the best stories and game settings ever. I just wish the combat was better (Baldur's Gate did it with much more balance and strategy) and the controls smoother.

I can't wait for the new Torment game in development. Won't be set in Planescape, but supposedly stays true to the spirit of the game. Kind of like System Shock to BioShock, I imagine.

I keep trying to get into it but consistently fail. To call it a "game" seems rather inappropriate. I think "interactive story" would be more apt. I appreciate what it goes for but the gameplay is totally non-existent. I'm sure if I gave it a chance and treated it like a book I might be able to get through it.

That's the same problem I had with it. When I first started it up I was faced with unfamiliar gameplay so I quit right away. Then I decided to give it another go and focused on reading all the dialog and doing all the quests. It stopped making me force myself to play it and instead I just wanted more of it. Still haven't progressed far though. Haven't had time to play it.

Yeah, Planescape has some really poorly made combat. I have a friend who considers to be his favorite game of all time, and he even admits that the game shouldn't of really had combat. I do enjoy that you can get through the entire game without having to use combat, aside from a few sequences where it is required.

Having said that, I was not a particular fan of the controls either. I found them tedious and confusing. Either way, I can't wait for the successor to release. Chris Avellone is the man.

From what I understand almost the entire game can be completed without having to fight, apparently only half a dozen or so battles are mandatory. Everything else can be completed with dialogue options. Don't know how true this is though. I also heard you can defeat the final boss by convincing him / her / it to kill itself or something.

Yeah, that's pretty much it. Granted, you have to sometimes think before you communicate, but it can be done. Good thing too!
