Just plain wrong son, just plain wrong. The Bioshock series, especially the first one is a perfect blend of story line and FPS action. The writing is brilliant and there are sooo many fascinating ways to obliterate the enemy.

They're well written, I'll give them that (though I didn't enjoy experiencing the story through audio tapes: yawn) but the gameplay is so linear and repetitive. Same enemy types and for some reason I find the plasmids or whatever they're called don't offer enough variety as they should. Definitely not the height of gaming if you ask me.

Loving bloodborne at the moment though I can't get past the first boss.

Only done two hours of gameplay though. I'm also playing fire emblem awakening on the 3DS. Really having fun with that.

Which boss? Cause some people accidentally fight the second boss first who's way more difficult.

It was the cleric beast but I finally beat him. I just love exploring yharnham. Like in dark souls there's just a certain sense of dread you get with every step.

Ye its a very well designed world. There's a pursuit and achievement of verisimilitude that's hard to find in most other games. GZ on the boss kill. With those large bosses it's usually ideal not to lock on.

Kinda disappointed with Bloodborne's Replayability. There aren't any builds and new game + doesn't change anything. All there is is the Challice Dungeons. Still, absolutely fantastic 80 hours.

Played a lot of Bloodborne and put up a review: http://plus10damage.com/blog/2015/4/15/bloodborne-review

Now I'm playing Scholar of the First Sin. The changes they made are pretty darn good and make the game more challenging, but also a bit fairer. Some areas aren't as bullshitty, and some just make more sense lorewise.

I've started playing GTA IV with my friend a lot, just beat the final heist and made $1.3 mil. It is the biggest pain in the ass waiting for the exact amount of players needed for missions, but once we start playing they're great. When we are hanging out we play horror games, at the moment its SCP: Containment Breach. We got stuck after it turned out the one place on the map where we constantly glitch and fall through is necessary to beat the game! After that its probably Amnesia: Machine For Pigs (we just beat the first game.)

Project Cars. Will be good when its finished.

Promising so far, though glitched to hell. Needs many patches.

Pillars of Eternity is the tits. It is a shame they made it real-time with pause rather than turn-based, though.

Aye, but I find PoE to be far more playable than old Infinity Engine games, even if PoE is trying hard to be like them.

Planescape: Torment was the only IE game I could stomach playing (since it is not combat-oriented at all), even though I wanted to like Baldur's Gate II a lot, my principal gaming experience with BG II was getting freed from Irenicus' crib at the start as a sorcerer, then meeting a couple of imp-like things, blasting them relatively fine, then ran out of spells, no way to rest and then I said hello to like 2 min long battles against imps where my two-member party nearly died with no way to regen.

This is on easiest. I fully realize I suck at this whole DnD shiznit, but I don't see why a real-time capable video game has to adhere downright strictly to pen and paper rpg rules, and I don't see how should I have fought those early battles with so limited spells as a spellcaster.

Never had this issue with PoE however, even if the game IS hard, and a turn-based (or fully real-time) combat system would have fit it better.

Bought so many games during the Steam Summer Sale, but I can't stop playing a wee £2 game called "Town Of Salem". It's so unbelievably addicitive. I'll get back to point n click games and CS:GO eventually

Well "finished" playing Assassin's Creed Unity. By finished, I've done the bits I can be arsed with.

What a real backwards step from Assassins Creed Black Flag in everything from gameplay to plot to nature of side quests to upgrades to inventory management. Most things were just a case of running and pressing O.

Witcher 3 done after 180 hours. I love the game but man it nosedives hard story wise in the last act. The books that I've read and the first 2 games mean a lot to me and it's extremely disappointing and depressing to see how the final act was treated. They clearly ran out of time. Curse of the open world still lingers...

Sad to hear it was disappointing.

I still want to play this one but still have a ton of other stuff to play. I'll wait until it goes really cheap.

Emotional conflict. There's disappointment but i'd still give it a 9/10 or something. Do you care about the world, the characters, the lore as much as I do? If not then what bothers me (and many other diehard fans) probably won't bother you as much, or at all.

It won't go 'really cheap' anytime soon ;P Witcher was basically unknown when the 1st 2 games dropped so it's gonna take a lot longer that 3-4 years for it to sell for <$5 on steam haha. Even at the full price the game ticks the 'bang for your buck' box.

Not played 1 or 2 so no attachment to the world (yet).

Actually I was thinking more like $40-$60 and on PS4.

I still haven't finished Watch Dogs! And I've got a few others sitting there collecting dust that I am yet to play.

On another note I managed to dual wield controllers for the first time ever whilst playing the most inane game I've ever played bar "My Hero" on Master System: Diablo 3.

3 of us were battling a boss and one of my mates left to go to the toilet. So I grabbed both controllers and pressed X with both controllers. Boss and minions were dispatched rather easily.

Truly inane. Never playing that again.

I hope you can get through the first Witcher. It's combat system and the first area discourage many people from completing it which I understand but personally I had no issue with the combat. It's a shame since I think it has one of the best sections/acts/chapters in VGs (Act 4).

Witcher 3 done after 180 hours.

Got me thinking what games I have spent the most hours on. Pretty easy to tell with Steam members. Just look it up. So with that in mind, I have put in 1091 hours into Borderlands 2. 313 hours in Skyrim. 8 MONTHS on QuakeLive, but that doesn't count since it's an online shooter. On the consoles, I remember putting over 300 hours in Final Fantasy 7 on PS3, the counter stopped at 299 I think. Oblivion, Fallout 3 and New Vegas, I know I put a boatload of hours into those games as well. I am missing some other games, those are the ones off the top of my head. Anyone want to chime in?

I also found the swamp in Witcher (acts II and III apparently, looking at the Wiki) very generic and tedious. So many quests about running back and forth through uninteresting areas, farming uninteresting monsters. Perhaps my memory of the experience is distorted, but it felt like doing chores in two areas (half of Vizima, and the swamp) dominated the major part of the game. It had its moments: a good story, art style (apart from recycled NPCs) and atmosphere, but a large part of it was just unappealing. Outdoors area design was very MMO-ish, I guess you could say, and the combat/character building aspect sucks ass. A good game, though, but nowhere near a modern RPG gem for me. (But I guess that is partly due to me being an RPG fan and the game really isn't one, so I judge by unusual standards.)

When you've invested 6000 hours it counts regardless if it's free or not But 1000 in Borderlands 2? I found that game to be so lackluster. Oh and Randy Pitchford is a cunt so there's that too

Ye the game really would have benefited from a fast travel system. At the end of the day it's flawed as fuck but it oozes charm if you ask me. I've finished it 3 times and would have no issue going through it again.

If you like Action role-playing you will love it, but you need patience (game is hard as fuck, not for newbies) and skill.
