  • Re: What game did you last play?

    I'm definitely very interested in the Evil Within, but waiting to see if there's any patches first on the PC version. Plus I have a heap of games to play first. Alien Isolation and Legend of Grimrock 2 being the primary candidates, and then probably burn 100 hrs in Civ: Beyond Earth if it's anywhere near as addictive as Civ V.

    While Alien Isolation was downloading on steam, I went and finished off getting one of the proper endings to Papers Please having not touched it since late last year and constantly ending up broke / dead / in jail etc. managed to get the Member of the Order achievement.

      Playing Alien Isolation.

      OMGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG GGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG

      SO FREAKING AWESOME!

      5 hrs in. Loving it. Up to chapter 6 (maybe half way through 6...). Really really nice slow paced survival horror similar to Amnesia the Dark Descent except with no going mad stuff / evil shit and with an Alien Skin with ridiculously good vibes and sticking to the source material like a honeypot of satisfaction and reward. (Except the game is soooo fricking scary!). Plus you feel pretty smart when you outsmart the Alien and all the other things you have to deal with and the game has achievements for not dying on particular levels so when you get to the end and somehow avoided all sources of potential disaster it rewards you for being extra sneaky. The only game where I enjoyed hiding in a cupboard just as much was the Stanley Parable.

        Could it be the best Alien game ever made?

        I have lost myself with these Batman games. I played the Arkham series again, 'cause it had been a while, and also because Arkham Knight is coming. I just can't get enough of DC lore.

          I'd be interested to hear your thoughts about Alien after you beaten the game. Many of the reviews suggest that they've padded it out quite a bit.

          I'm tempted, but if I buy it now it'll be for the 360, not next-gen/pc; so I don't think I'll get it at full retail.

            I think the first thing that I love is the AI of the alien itself makes it scary. Because it seems to be sort of random in where it chooses to go. As it it might be stalking a specific area but it's actual pathing is going through a randomised logic check so it's not like getting past an enemy in Thief or Assassin's Creed or Hitman where you just memorise their patrol pattern, but you constantly have to check where the bugger is and sometimes when he's gone silent and you whip out the motion detector the bugger has snuck up behind into the same vent as you! So to get through certain bits unnoticed you actually need to be closer than you want to be so you can actually confirm he's gone into the roof ducts as opposed to elsewhere. Hiding under something close by, but in slight visual range of the alien seems to be more effective than hiding in another room in a cupboard and having to make more noise getting between your current position, the alien and your destination.

            Technical things:
            Control scheme works beautifully on PC with KB+M.
            Graphics are superb at everything on max. Turned off film grain though.

              Some happy snaps, no spoilers. Just teasing you guys.

              9 hrs through. Chapter 10. Half way.

              Hiding under bed! Oh noes! He can't see me!


              Ooooo the space! Needs more furniture.


              Comfy happy place!


              *Holds hands on ears* "LALALALALALLALALALA!" throws KB+M away and goes and cowers behind PC chair.


              Oooooooo this must be a good plan!


              I have heaps of really cool screenshots too, but they're probably considered "spoiler" territory. So no blue light disco party photos OK.

                    Finished AC: Black Flag (PS4) story and did quite many of side activities there - all in all 64% cleared everything. Might stop there - don't see much sense in just killing time in there collecting stuff. But might play it a bit - until InFamous: Second Son arrives - decided to order it since kind of liked First Light, which I bought to see if Second Son is worth it

                    And once FarCry 4 is out - this is what I'll be doing for quite a while. I pre-ordered it the same day it was announced, so fingers crossed I'll get in in 3 weeks or so.

                    Also considering buying Xbox One. Will use it for exclusives and Kinect games (my wife misses Xbox 360). Obviously will be playing mostly on PS4 - 1080p sounds better any day
                    If you are afraid of gaining weight - drink 2 glasses of vine before every meal. Alcohol kills fear...

                      Yeah, I so need to buy PS4 this christmas and Alien: Isolation. Facehuggers scare the shit out of me though. I may not be able to finish the game.

                      Bayonetta 2. The fighting mechanics in this game are just so good. You basically need only two buttons to fight. One for leg, other for hands. So it is simple play, but some combos need right timing and there's Witch Time (Bullet Time) which also needs good timing. So the fighting feels for the lack of better word like dancing. It's just so effortles and still so brutally difficult some times.
                      Plus you can switch between two customizable sets of weapons of the fly, so you figure it out.
                      It's not steady 60FPS, but that's Wii U. Still it looks good and there isn't any troublesome frame drops.

                        I started playing World of Warcraft again. Ugh, what am I doing with my life?

                          Finished Alien Isolation. 10/10. GOTY 2014.











                          Though I haven't played Divinity:Original Sin or Dragon Age: Inquisition yet. Having said that just finished downloading DA:I and played through the opening 1.5 hrs. Seems like this could be either a) AMAZING or b) will need to really deliver a terrible story for me to hate this. Only thing I'm annoyed about so far is that playing as Mage is kinda stand still and spam spells = boring.

                            Dragon Age Inquisition. OMG lost in the middle of no where with 10,000 side quests to do and so addicted to everything. Swear I just destroyed an entire castle full of undead with no potions in my inventory and the entire party on "Low Health" the whole time getting chased by some horrific god-ray Golden Sun Death Satellite Castle Defence BS. Yes the tank mechanics work really really well in this game. ~25 hrs into the game. And this was just a silly sidequest. 100% optional.

                              OMGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG GGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG GGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG GGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG GGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG

                              It's like Bioware listened to all the shit about DAII's shittyness and then went and slapped DA MOST EPIC GAME EVER into the most gorgeous looking engine every and then went INSANE on original artwork all over the damn place and amazing sidequests. OMG the sidequests never end. 45 hrs in and still doing SIDEQUESTS. BECAUSE SIDEQUESTS OMG THE SIDE-QUSESTS TO THE SIDE OF EPIC NESS.... YESSSS EY+TEYEAYAHAHAAHAHAHAAHAHAAHAHAAHAHAHAAHAHAEYEYYE SO damn awesome.

                              Stumbled into an epic sidequest finding hidden dwarven ruins everywhere based on handdrawn maps using the natural features of the environment as clues for the next. Then rolled into taking back a keep from templars, then finally unlocked specialisation and now my Lightning/Fire Mage of Doom is now a IN-YA_FACE NINJA / Lightning Walking Death Machine. Knight Enchanter is sooooo bad-ass. OMG after 45 hrs of my mage standing still and wrecking havoc, now I run around and REKT EVEYWHERE! And the lame find stupid sparkly things everywhere sidequest actually has an awesome temple to unlock and slowly get nice upgrades for your character from. It's just excellent. And I'm still trying to romance both Cassandra and Sera into a three-way with my fem-[shep]-Inquisitor.

                                Yo dawg, we heard you like sidequests, so we put sidequest to your sidequests sidequest, so you can sidequest while your sidequesting sidequest?

                                I really don't know if that game is for me, really love Mass Effects tho, but still...

                                I'm playing Alien Isolation and propably at 3rd or 4th chapter. Have been quite a blast to this point. Allthough, the Alien tend to be more annoying than scary at sometimes... Also, don't know if it was a bug/glitch of some sort, but once when crouching through few areas where that thing was lurking I opened one door and it was standing there. Apparantelly it didn't notice me, because of it went on and killed other humans at that section...
