Red Faction 1. Got it cheap on PSN, along with Red Faction 2. I really loved RF1 on PC, used to play it a ton on PC. I'm pretty angry about it right now, though. Maybe it's just because it's the PS2 version, but the hit detection is AWFUL, I can be literally point blank and have rounds miss, and then the weapon accuracy is all over the place, where a bullet will land is totally random, and zerg rushing enemies is probably the fastest way to kill them.
Of course, this was before proper auto aim was invented on consoles, so it has that god awful lock on that was in GoldenEye and Perfect Dark, which only locks on to enemies chests. You can disable the autoaim, but good luck hitting anything.
What else? Well, I get to a boss fight, against some floating guy with a nanotech shield thingy that shoots lasers or some shit, anyways, an AI partner blows through a wall coming from some cave, in this cave is some gear to aid in the boss fight, so I go in there, get it, decide to save, and die... No biggie, reload autosave, and instant game over, the game thinks I went too far into the cave and abandoned the boss fight. Alright, no big deal, reload auto save. Wait, what's that? The game doesn't have auto save, even though auto save is a pretty widespread feature by then? Okay, well let's just go to level select and get as close as possibl- Wait, what? It doesn't have level select either? So I have to start the game over entirely? Hahahaha, fuck that, fuck your shit game design, I am not replaying that at all. I'll just wait for the PC version to go on sale, I'll cheat my way through so that I'm relatively close to where I was on the PS2 version, and continue from there normally.

Trying to keep myself away from Doom, I'm pretty addicted to it. I don't think I can ever grow bored of it, as long as people keep making new mods and maps for it, and people still are all the time, the Dooming community is an amazing and dedicated one.

Anyways... Other games.

Battlefield 4, recently. Yeah, I know you all have probably heard about how broken or buggy or whatever it is... Though for me personally, playing it on the PS4, I haven't run into a helluva lot of issues. At least, not enough to really ruin my enjoyment of it. The latest DLC for it, Naval Strike, is probably one of the more enjoyable DLCs I've played recently.

I "beat" Gone Home earlier. I like the method of delivering the games story, non linear, visual storytelling, through notes and stuff, as a storytelling mechanic it's pretty great, and they did a good job of making this sort of unsettling, almost horror atmosphere for the mansion. However the story itself, while not really tackled often in games, isn't really all the special, it felt like oscar bait. I'm glad I bought it on sale though, it's not worth the full price.

AP:  A few years ago I invented the best way to eat leftover spaghetti and today I made it even better.

So one day I had a bunch of leftover spaghetti and decided to punch it up a bit because I wasn't in the mood for that slightly soggy taste leftover pasta always seems to have.  So I dumped it in a baking dish, put some mozzarella cheese on top, baked it til the cheeze melted and started to brown at the edges, viola!  Spaghetti bake.  Simple, and delicious. 

Tonight while I was getting ready to make a batch I had a slip of the tongue and called it pizza bake.  Then I was like, "why not?"  Layer of cheese went on top like normal, then pepperoni, and another light dusting of cheese.  Amazing.

This has been, cooking leftovers with Outlaw, join us next time where he shares his recipe for Mexican spaghetti!



That sounds delicious.

Playing the original Deus Ex, have it on steam, just haven't played it that much. It's really hard playing the original game coming from Human Revolution, HR feels much more refined. The original has lots of really "Gamey" feeling stuff, that just kinda bogs down the experience. The biggest gripe I have so far is every weapon you use is total shit until you get the necessary amount of points to upgrade your skills, which can take a fair bit, I've gone through two missions now and don't have enough to upgrade my pistol skill yet, so a majority of the time I just zerg rush them with a knife, or spray and pray. Another issue is that there's no apparent autosave function (a feature most games had at the time), and as a result it just encourages save scumming.
I'll try to beat it, but so far it feels like a slog.

EDIT:

Ubisoft is having a wicked sale on PS3 currently, I got myself Rainbow Six Vegas 2, since I had always heard about how good it was, and so far the gameplay is great... However, there's horrendous audio issues with the download version of the game. Wish I knew that before buying it.

EDIT: The Walking Dead Season 2, Episode 2. Oh god, these cliffhangers, man.

I mainly mean with the bosses. They seem a lot more deadly than Dark Souls 1. In DaS1 I only had to summon once in need of help for a boss... Dark Souls 2 I've had to use it a lot more.

Also fuck Old Iron King. He wasn't too hard but you had to travel SO FAR to get to him if you died.

I bet Valve is regretting lending a hand to the Oculus VR guys now.

From what I've heard, Sony's VR headset is pretty slick, so I hope that takes off.

It's just awful, word is that the Oculus will be rebranded, and Zuckerberg is already talking about integrating facebooks shitty interface into it, with advertisements. Oculus is as good as dead as far as I'm concerned, I hope that Sony's Morpheus VR headset turns out good, because there's no way I'm going to buy something with Facebooks cancer attached to it.

Just beat Scorpioness Najka in Dark Soul 2, hit level 99. Goddamn this game is just as brutal as Dark Souls 1.

PP: Facebook bought Oculus VR, the group making the innovative Oculus Rift Virtual Reality Goggles. Facebook will probably ruin it like they do everything else.

PP: Facebook in general. Fuck them.

I thought it was amusing. All depends on your sense of humor I guess.

Saw Full Metal Jacket. It was fantastic.

I know how that is. Bought a points card for the Wii U once, turns out it was only for the Wii. Pissed me right off.

I never knew Sony made cards for their online store... Did it have the Playstation Network, or Playstation Store logo on it? Those are what make them stand out.

Pursuer really wasn't that bad, he's very easy to dodge, I just wanted to get it done the fast way. Speaking of bosses...

So played through Ground Zeroes. If you don't know, it's basically a glorified demo for MGS5: The Phantom Pain. Ground Zeroes acts as a sort of epilogue to The Phantom Pain, to introduce fans to the games new gameplay mechanics and features (Reflex mode, the game being open world, vehicles, etc, etc). It's sold at a lowered price, I got it for $35, I think it's about $30 in the US. The main mission can be beat in half an hour, but there's several side missions, and the side missions all have their own little side challenges to beat. I'd say it's only worth it if you're a big fan of metal gear, and could see yourself replaying it a lot, I got through all the games content in about 3 or 4 hours, however I only have 34% on it, so there's still stuff for me to go back for.

Anyways, the game itself... Unlike previous games, MGS5 Ground Zeroes takes place in an open world environment, albeit a very small one (The Phantom Pain will have a much larger world), giving you a lot more freedom in how you want to get shit done. The gameplay has been streamlined a fair bit, Snake's movements are a lot more fluid, and you have a bit more freedom of movement, you can now sprint, climbing is faster and less clunky, and you can vault and jump over obstacles.
Features of more modern stealth games have been brought in as well, such as the ability to tag enemies (Like Far Cry 3, or the more recent Splinter Cell games) so you can track their movement, and there's also "Reflex", when an enemy spots you, the game will go slow motion, giving you a short opportunity to whip out your gun and pop off a shot at the enemy before they alert the others. What's nice is that if you don't like either of the two previously mentioned new features, you can disable them entirely from the options menu.
Speaking of enemies, they're a lot more dynamic this time around. In previous games, enemies had a short field of view, and if you entered that field of view you would be immediately spotted, or if they caught a glimpse of you they'd either pass it off as nothing, or take a look before quickly returning to their patrol. The enemies of MGS5 now have a longer field of view, but that doesn't mean they'll identify you as a target right away, they might shine a flashlight at you to get a better look, or even walk towards you to confirm if you're a friend or foe, if you move away before they can get a good look, they'll call up on the radio stating that they saw a suspicious person, and that they'd like reinforcements so they can investigate.

Anyways, I could go on and on, but I'm having a ton of fun with it. The PS4 version has its own exclusive mission where you explore the game world, and recreate scenes from MGS1, it's full of easter eggs and other fun secrets, you can even unlock a MGS1 Snake or Gray Fox costume to use during that mission, or dress the enemy soldiers up as Genome Soldiers.

Yeah I've been having to summon a lot more for Dark Souls 2. The Ruin Sentinels are a BITCH. Also, for the Pursuer, lure him with one of his slow ass attacks in front of the broken section of ledge, and then quickly run to the ballista and shoot him with it, takes down like 99% of his health.

Just got MGS5 Ground Zeroes today, waiting for my sister to get off the PS4 so I can play it.
