Yeah, the Mass Effect games aren't perfect but there's still nothing really quite like them; the gameplay is fun and the story engaging if you like decently written space opera.

Just don't expect the clarity of focus in plot that PS:T or Deus Ex demonstrated.


mhmm it's pretty damn hard to improve on the original deus ex in any way, really.

Divinity Original Sin is pretty fun so far, but my God the looped dialogue every 5 seconds in busy places is doing my head in.

"Halibut, Sheep's Cheese, Tomatoes."

"No one has as many friends as the man with many cheeses!"

"Not in the mood for cheese? That excuse has more holes that a slice of this fine Gorgonbert!"


Shut uuuuup!

The truth. This man speaks it.

Amongst other flaws I'd list the atrocious inventory system (every character has his own gold, why is that not a party-shared resource, ffs?), music is sometimes inappropriate in a given situation, the journal and the map are somewhat clunky and not very useful and the progression path gets very unclear and confusing once you leave the first map.

Still, the game kicks ass. A bit too light-hearted for my taste, but eh, can't have everything.

Yep yep yep. Also not being able to activate chests and doors unless you do so with the character holding the key, and the same with identifying items; having to constantly pass the item to the person with the Loremaster skill is probably going to cost me a lot of time over the course of the game. I can definitely see the journal becoming an issue as it already has a little. It's just too vague in some situations and it would be convenient if it ordered the missions points by the order they should be completed in rather than the order they have been done in (in situations where I accidentally complete a section of it before another part).

But yeah, great stuff. Liking the battle system even though it's kicked my ass a few times. Forcing me to be strategic. Kind of sad the the Rogue class seems a little underpowered in battle and was more or less forced to turn him into a Ranger. Maybe the rogue will be more useful later on when I can make better sue of backstab and a decent weapon.

I am currently playing through Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow 2 and I actually like it quite a bit despite the mostly negative critical response it seems to have received thusfar. The game definitely introduces some unorthodox elements concerning the frequent contemporary locations but the dark, mystical atmosphere the series is known for is fully in-tact and, let's face it, playing as Dracula is simply a blast! I haven't beaten it but so far I'd say I don't like it quite as much as the first Lords Of Shadow but it's pretty darn close ... I am not even going to compare it to Symphony Of The Night because nothing compares to that one, haha.

Currently playing Smite. Pretty much a rip off of League of Legends and every other game like it, but still slightly unique and entertaining.

NEW DARK SOULS 2 DLC BITCHES! It's kinda fun, even if they did ruin my Faith Caster. Seriously, don't make a Faith Caster anymore. They're now rubbish.

Decent Humble Bundle right now: for 15€ you can grab Thief Gold, the entire Deus Ex franchise, Hitman 1, 2 and Absolution, and some other stuff. Too bad I already have the ones I want the most.

Stuck in my home town without proper Internet so bought myself the HD collection of the MGS games (not the Legacy one though). Quite looking forward to going through MGS3 again. This time with playable frame rate.

Contemplating getting Tales of Xillia as well. Thing is Tales games have all disappointed me since Symphonia and the reviews I've read don't totally convince me. Not sure I can take any more anime stereotypes.

Uhhh I watched a stream of it if that counts. It's only 1 outta 3 parts so I won't comment on whether it's better than the Prepare to Die DLC but it's solid stuff. Much better level design, at least 1 great boss, others looked decent at best.

I might try and hold off till all 3 parts are out. Will be more satisfying to have that much content in one go.

I'm down to my last 2 PS3 games to beat- Grand Theft Auto 4 and God of War III. I hope I can get through them before summer's over. Not so worried about God of War but I get the feeling GTA is going to be a looong story and the gameplay isn't exactly stellar so it might be a bit of a mission.

Long and shitty. GoW3 is great but not as good as the prequel. Near to nothing's as good as GoW2.

Well 50 hours invested into Don't Starve and I have to say it's become one of my favourite games. I've spent about 20 of the last 48 hours playing it which is pretty depressing but I've loved every minute of it.

The game can be pretty monotonous and frustrating when you first pick it up as it doesn't exactly conjure up a hold your hand type of affair. You'll die many times early on and couple that with the fact that you start off each time doing vaguely the same stuff (collect supplies x,y,z, make a fire, get a food source), I can understand why people give up on it. However below the surface, you have a detailed and in depth game that offers quite a bit of variety and fun.

4 seasons that change the gameplay quite a bit, many characters all with their palpable pros and cons, tons of things to craft, tons of intricate and subtle nuances to the game. I could go on all night.

Tl;dr Detailed and comprehensive world, lovable art style, only gonna get better with incoming multiplayer, mod support. Best survival game to date.

So far GoW3 is on par with the second for me, if not better. I really love it when game makers don't mess around with the things that make a game good in the first place, and there isn't much drastic change from GoW-GoW3. And the third is basically just the best graphics, best combat, an epic story on par with the others, and some of the most unreal boss fights I have ever experienced.

Risen 3 looks rather promising. The first one was fairly good during its first half but then took a nosedive, the second one was a pirate-themed abortion, so I'm hoping Piranha bytes learned from their mistakes and maybe they can finally make a good modern Gothic game (hopefully with good combat, 'cuz that would be a first, it's astonishing how retarded PB are in that aspect).

Also, Lichdom:Battlemage looks swanky.

Ye as most successful trilogies go they didn't really mess with the formula. The second one was just the most memorable for me. The pacing was just perfect.

Yeah. Pacing in the 2nd and 3rd I find pretty similar to be honest. They really made them just buttery. I might just be an idiot too but I found some of the puzzles in the first game really hard, which at times was grating cause I would sit there for half an hour solving a puzzle wishing there was some more guys to go macho on.

I got impatient and had a sneaky look at the bosses in the new Dark Souls DLC and I'm pretty appalled. From what I saw it's a re-skin of Guardian Dragon, a re-skin of Nashandra and a trio of standard looking NPCs, one of which is a clone of Havel! They all seem to have similar moves to their original counterparts too. How disappointing and lazy.

A shame. I remember the bonus content in "Prepare to Die" was awesome. Knight Artorias and Manus were easily the best bosses in the game. I spent almost a full summer day trying to beat Manus, died roughly 30 times.

I agree, they nailed that DLC through and through. The new one looks pretty bland in terms of locations too.

The location itself is pretty meh but the level design is great. The dragon really is a re-skin of Kalameet imo. The tri boss was obviously meant to promote summoning but I didn't like it. The 1st boss was quite a cop out too. They did what you shouldn't do and gave the boss some level of difficulty simply by throwing minions into the fray. That's just not creative...
