DmC got released this week. The critics have been positive but user reaction has been low.

Playing Freelancer, at last. It's nicely modded too so has quite pretty vistas. I enjoy shooting things in space.

I gave in to my childhood nostalgia, and I'm currently playing Warcraft 2.

Bahaha. That was my most played game on steam for a while. Now it's Dark Souls 2, followed closely by Skyrim.

I've played plenty but I've been kinda fed up with games for a while now. I usually play some old stuff in the middle of winter when people around here ain't doing a lot and I have a little more free time. I play some FIFA with my pals occasionally, but that's pretty much it right now.

Of the games I've played my all time favorite is Mafia I. A very well made and quite intelligent sandbox style game with a great storyline. The second game was complete rubbish compared to that. I've played lots of GTAs too, mainly Vice City and San Andreas and its multiplayer race mode Multi Theft Auto. Haven't played GTA 5 yet, but I didn't like the fourth regardless the neat graphics that much and left it uncompleted.

I also played Warcraft 3 and got hooked and later played WoW for about a year but this game takes insane amount of time if you want a decent character and it really got tiring, even though my guy wasn't that great at all. Otherwise great game.

I rarely play some vintage Sierra games from the early to mid nineties. Quest for Glory being my favorite series - basically you're an average Joe who eventually becomes a "hero" by completing different quests and helping people out. It has some cool folk references and these games introduced rpg elements as well, although overall idea probably seems cheesy.

New Final Fantasy XV trailer. Hard to know exactly what to think, but it certainly looks like one of the prettiest games ever made. Even the animation looks next-gen.



Those fucking hairstyles and character designs though. God, I hope generic anime tropes die a quick death sometime soon. I really don't want to play a game full of J-Rock stars.

Also the last Dark Souls 2 DLC has been revealed. Gonna be a snowy one.

Meh.

Also. Silent Hills trailer. I have no idea where they are now, story-wise, this kind of environment seems to be new.

@Silent Hills: Lot of cool design elements in that trailer.

@Final Fantasy: So torn by the trailer. I love the colossal monsters, environments and visuals but the characters are complete rubbish and the car is so extrinsic and distracting.

@Bloodborne: New trailer makes the game look even better than before.

@MGS 5: 20 minute demo shown. Top stuff. Took place in the jungle region which is my favourite type of biome in metal gear. It's one of the few games that knows it's a game and just embraces it. So much goofy content...playboy boxes, parachuting both living and still objects to your base and tons of other stuff that most other games would get criticized for including.

And there's also gameplay footage of Torment: Tides of Numenera. Maybe this'll be the first PC top down RPG to actually draw me in.



So glad MGS 5 is PC bound.

I don't feel like that game aged. I was playing it a few weeks ago and it still feels fast and intense especially on the later levels on harder difficulties.

yeah totally ..i mean if you override the keyboard only controls with more modern one (keyboard + mouse) and add jump/duck into game mechanics and polish rendering a bit (all of that Brutal Doom mod is doing )you end up with still a fresh game.its still fun to play it and to me is still more interesting than most modern shooters.

Finally played through Spec Ops: The Line. Am glad I did. It's a pretty generic third person cover shooter (albeit very solid and pretty to look at, and fucking hard later on) but the story and writing make up for any shortcomings. I don't think I've played a game that so effectively plays on psychological breakdown and delusions / hallucinations since Silent Hill 2 (in fact the stories have a lot of similarities). Certainly not what you'd expect from something so generic sounding.

Ye it really catches everyone by surprise. Could have been the best 3PS if they took advantage of the setting and just made the gameplay all around better.

So tomorrow we get the last Dark Souls DLC and that Lord of the Rings RPG. Honestly was even expecting to be vaguely interested in it but going by the reviews it looks like it'll be worth the time.

So I was home on the weekend and played like 15 or 20 minutes of Dark Souls. I don't know if I did something wrong or changed something, but unlike the first couple bummy skeletons in the jail I was hitting like 20's on the next few I was hitting 2's on, and they took like minutes to kill. I actually ran past the first archer one cause I thought he was unkillable. I also thought I had to kill the giant obese demon thing at first cause you have to stand on a certain area of the ground just for the message to pop up that said "Run".

You should be able to pick up a non-broken sword near the start. Everything there is pretty killable with ease. Not sure why any of the regular enemies in the first area took minutes to kill. They should take no more than 3 or 4 regular hits.

The obese demon thing does have to be killed if you want to get out the first area you get to drop down on him and take nearly half his health off at one point.

If you're playing the PC version you should get the DSFix so you can get 1080p and 60fps (though I can no longer get the 60fps function to work for some reason) as well as a few other nice graphic effects.

Well I mean like a minute or two. I was hitting 2's on the skeletons and I think they had like 50-60 hp. I might have accidentally switched my proper sword out for a broken one or something. But the first skeletons that just stand there were going as you described then the other ones weren't. I feel ripped off with my special power too, I think I picked a shit one. From the description I thought it slowly healed you over time but it seems to just "increase HP slightly", which isn't majorly helpful.

I'm playing on PS3, and the next time I'll get back into it is probably about 2 weeks from now when I have a couple days home for thanksgiving. I do think the obese demon is haunting my dreams a little bit though, I had a dream about him last night.

The only gift worth having is the key as it gives you access to areas far earlier than you would otherwise I don't think any of the others are particularly useful.

Maybe you equipped the sword in your shield hand. I think it reduces the power by quite a bit. I dunno though, IT'S A MIST-A-REE.

Don't give up <3

Yeah, since I didn't get very far I might just remake my character. I feel like I would end up getting to something locked then kick myself over not picking the key. Happens in a lot of games, actually.

It really is a mystery, but one I intend to solve (AINT NUTHIN gonna make me give up on this game). To be honest aside from not being able to go macho on the skeletons everything else about the game was cool. I like how the opening cutscene basically sums up the game from the beginning of time. In some other games, notably the Elder Scrolls 4/5, right from the get-go there's like all these different warring factions and kingdoms and shit and I feel like I just don't know anything about them. And also the castle you first get into has an almost Ico-like strange atmosphere and emptiness about it. Interesting game, no doubt.

The story is hella obscure. There's a few spartan conversations with the odd person you meet and the descriptions of items gives info on the game lore but largely the story is something you really have to hunt down for yourself through that. And I agree with the Ico comparison. The game is very lonely and minimal in many respects. I love the lack of music outside bosses, having only ambience everywhere else.

Not a happy chappy. Turns out Assassins Creed Rogue is only coming out on PS3/Xbox 360 and I only have a bloody PS4! Seems no port to PS4 is expected

PS4 players only get Assassins Creed Unity which has none of the awesome naval combat featured in AC III and IV!

Total suckage.
