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.

Is this a dream sequence because the "I just happen to have a secret stash of weapons you don't know about" line kinda took the wind out of the page.

I mean if they talked about this scenario, weapons would have come up at one point.   

Or Sammie is providing her friend and boss with one of the greatest gifts of all... plausible deniability.

Seriously bizarre dream last night.

There was a gun fight in a shopping mall or some other large building with a lot of staircases and open areas, and I was decked out in full tactical gear apparently responding to the disturbance.  I was with two other responders who for whatever reason turned out to be Seth Rogen and James Franco.  I have no idea why and I agree it makes no logical sense.

So it turns out we are facing off against Mary Jo Pehl (aka Pearl Forrester from MST3K) who was dressed like a blue pyro from Team Fortress complete with flamethrower but also packing a sniper rifle (no gas mask though.)  So after initially wounding her she had us pinned down with sniper fire so what else do you do with downtime if you're hanging out with Seth and James?  That's right, we rolled big fat doobies and smoked them.  It was the most logical part of the entire dream.  My alarm clock went off right at the point I bitching at Seth for rolling the joint like shit because it wasn't burning even.

I finally got around to reading the Harry Dresden novel "Changes" while I was on vacation in Mexico.  I've had the book since it first came out and it has literally travelled around the world with me on various trips until I finally had enough down time to read through it and I forgot how much I liked this series in the nearly five years since I read any of it.  I already ordered the three books in the series that have come out since.  According to Amazon they should be waiting for me by the time I get home, I can't wait.

Back in the USA!  My first sleeping in my own house was great.  I never sleep well in hotels.

Killing Floor.  New Summer event means new limited time character to unlock =)

PP:  This is the first Steam sale where I have NOT been able to craft the badge for it.  Because I'm in Mexico I couldn't buy anything (it detects that I'm in Mexico and my paypal account is linked to the US so it thinks I'm trying fraud of some sort) or even buy the cards from the marketplace to complete the set.  It pisses me off because I spent a week trying to work through it with Steam support which is totally unhelpful, the just copy/paste stuff from the FAQ I already read and close the tickets.
