AP: Actually went out and had some drinks with new friends for the first time in ages. Also discovered the glory of Guinness, Jameson, and Bailey's.

I am so proud right now.

LOL! Super Deformed Sammy and Jenny are so cute.

Agreed.  Jenny doesn't do the superdeformed or chibi representations of her characters as much as she used but I still enjoy seeing it.

EDIT: Just played the first part of the Sniper Elite 3 "Save Churchill" DLC. It's shit, it's basically mission 5 from the main game except with some slight changes (Takes place at night, slight alterations and additions to the map itself, different scenario), but is otherwise a copy/paste job. The other two DLCs, however, look MUCH better, in that they take place in their own, unique levels.

I liked most of Sniper 2 but really wasn't satisfied with the predominantly short range shots.  Did they at least open up the levels in 3 to allow for true long range sniping?

I've been playing Wasteland 2 this weekend since the final release finally dropped.  I almost got to the point where I left off in my last beta play session (during the second big beta patch.)  The game obviously recieved a lot of polish since then.  I can say if you liked the original Wasteland or the first two Fallout games you need to play this.  The atmosphere is spot on and the gameplay is solid.

I just regret that Wasteland 2 is competing with Shadowruns: Dragonfall Director's Cut for my attention.  I got almost all the way to the end of Dragonfall (which is fantastic btw) then stopped playing when I heard the Director's cut was coming out.  But having too many good games to choose from isn't something I can complain about too much.

I liked the concept of Receiver but the fact you can't remap keys which is a deal breaker for me.

And then the little girl rips open Murblesaur and ALSO pulls out a pistol.



That would be awesome.

I love the expression on the little girl's face in the last panel.  It's like, "dude, why are you letting your date leave?"  For almost being eaten five seconds ago she's a pretty chill little girl.

I always preferred this one.



Though these alternates are also pretty good.

Mass Effect 2

It's pretty awesome, and Tali  He love you long time Jack totally hates me for it but it's worth it.

I loved Mass Effect 2.  I really need to get around to playing 3 one of these days.

I have been playing through some of the various games I've picked up in indie bundles recently. 

Nosferatu: Wrath of Malachi.  Odd little game (I say little because it's short, 1 and a half to 2 hours-ish) where you go to a vampires castle and attempt to rescue your family/friends (apparently your sister is engaged to marry the vampire and you show up late to the wedding party.)  It's not a pretty game (originally released years ago and graphically hasn't aged very well) but I like it quite a bit.  The item interactions are simple but well thought out (the cross for example can be used to turn any water you run across into holy water) and there is a sort of rock/paper/scissor quality to the combat (for example the cross can repel vampires or even destroy spirits but has no effect on mortals enslaved to the vampire) and while the castle layout remains the same every playthrough the locations of many characters, items and even enemies are randomized.  You're encouraged to rescue as many of your friends and family as you can, for one you lose if too many die and two, each one you rescue can provide you either a special item or some kind of service such as healing.  It also has a healthy resource managment aspect.  Thereís nothing quite like being down to one round for your pistol, out of holy water and down to minimal health and opening a door with no idea what might be waiting behind it.

Wasteland Angel.  I love vehicular combat games and this one seems simple but fun.  I almost bought it a few times, glad I finally picked it up.

Lifeless Planet.  A moody exploration/platformer set on a dead planet where youíve crash-landed.  Youíre following someoneís footsteps, first assumed to be those of your crewmember but after a while itís obviously not himÖ  I like it so far though the fact that 90% of the game is walking and jumping puzzles (made a little more interesting with low gravity and jet assisted boosts) might wear thin eventually.

Leisure Suit Larry Reloaded.  Yep, another reboot of one of the most infamous games of all time.  Having played the original and the first remake already I would not have gone out of my way to get this but it was in a bundle I was going to get anyway.  It was a fun trip through nostalgia and they changed up enough to not make it a simple walkthrough even for veterans.  A few new things even got added.  Not bad if you were a fan of the series.

Outlast.  I loved this up until my first encounter with an enemy.   Itís moody and atmospheric (set in an insane asylum where apparently everyone has escaped and gone berserk) itís obviously inspired by Amnesia where the protagonist has no weapons and must rely on stealth or avoidance.  Then scripted sequences and poor level design rape you.  It might get better later but I was greatly disappointed with the first ďrealĒ enemy encounter even though I did ďbeat it.Ē   Amnesia did it better is what Iím getting at.

Sangfroid: A tale of werewolves.  I was disappointed that this game wasnít co-op because it really seemed like it should have been.  I havenít gotten any further after completing the tutorial but it seems OK despite the lack of co-op.

Monaco: whatís yours is mine.  Holy crap this game is hard if you play it solo or even with just one other person.  Itís really meant to be played with a full four players but despite the later steep difficulty curve the game is well made and fun.  Short story is between one to four players  choose  a criminal from one of up to seven classes (some unlock later in the story) each having a unique skill or talent (the cleaner can knock out enemies, the locksmith picks locks faster than anyone else, etc.)  Each mission gets slowly more difficult, especially if you are trying to completely loot them (cleaning out a level gets you nice score bonuses and also unlocks additional missions.)  I like the art direction where each level is basically played out on a blueprint drawing with top down view and pseudo pixel 3-d models. 

Charlie Murder.  A beat Ďem up in the tradition of Castle Crashers or Scott Pilgrim, this one can be quite dark but the game play is solid.  Best if you bring along at least one friend since each character has a unique team based move you wonít be able to use if you play solo. 

As always, if you see me on Steam, Xbox or PSN and feel like doing some co-op gaming give me a shout.

Have you played the Lifeline expansion? I rarely, if ever, used guns before I got Lifeline, but my experiences in Danforth have resulted in me always carrying one when scavenging.

I have lifeline but haven't played it yet but I always bring a fully loaded gun with me on any run though.  I've had a few encounters where things went from bad to worse and a firearm is the only thing that kept me alive. 

I really need to get back to playing this, I rage quit after an espescially bad session of Breakdown a few months ago and the taste of bile is still in my mouth whenever I think of starting over again.  I will one of these days though, the missing achievements will haunt me otherwise.

Finally finished The Walking Dead season 2.  I can't say I liked it as much as S1 but I suppose I knew going in that it was going to be a tough act to follow.  Season 3 will have to bring something very new to the table to keep my interest.

Giving up on Thief. As much as I love stealth action, I just cannot get into it, playing newer and more refined stealth games has probably ruined it for me. It's absurdly slow paced. The AI is a little too aware, being able to hear you through walls, and then there's basically no way to defend yourself if you get caught. Being caught basically means "Open the menu and load last save because there's nothing you can do." The one time I did try to defend myself, I whipped out my sword and basically left clicked on the guard for a full minute before he died, I could have just been trying to make another attempt at sneaking past in the time it took to kill him.
A quick google search shows Thief 1 and 2 take on average about 20 hours to complete just for a straight playthrough. I just don't have the patience to play something like that for 20 hours

This post makes me cry...

Oh god I hate that, when games just tack on fighting. Condemned 2 had the same issue. It's a psychological horror, there's combat and such, but you mainly rely on melee weapons (which break after too much use), and guns can be found, but ammo doesn't last long at all, and they're few and far between. End of the game it just becomes a full blown FPS, dropping assault rifles for you everywhere.

Yea, for a game that had an achievement for beating it with no guns the "lots-o-guns" at the end was weird.

Jenny, I know that mere words won't serve to express or empathize with what you're going through but I do feel bad for you and wish that I was more eloquent so that I would  be more adequately able to express how I feel and how I wish you all the best.
