Murdered: Soul Suspect.

It's okay enough, it's a lot like Alan Wake and Heavy Rain type runs.

It would be so much BETTER if the controls weren't so wonky. You have to exorcise demons and you have to do it while they aren't looking at you. If you don't have the camera just right it won't register and you have to run for your life to get away from the damn thing. It's ... increasingly frustrating.

Batman: Arkham Asylum

Picked up a 360 controller for $20 and been fiddling around with all the games that have controller support on Steam. Works wonders with Electronic Super Joy and Super House of Dead Ninjas and Batman, it's just amazing. Feels real good playing it on the tv through Steam's Big Picture and guide kicking fools and grapple hooking away before getting caught is awesome! It's like you're Batman, except you are Batman. Amazingly solid and that WB collection was well worth it for this alone.

That just means you're human, Cheez. I feel like anyone who didn't at LEAST feel a little tug in their chest just has no heart.

True, true.

Just completed Dead Island (second playthrough, using the blades specialist this time) a few minutes ago.

Mass Effect, it's awesome. You can even go to a strip club and ogle some alien babes while they dance for you. Kinda makes me think of Duke Nukem 3D.

Kentucky Route Zero. Surreal point and click adventure with excellent writing. I strongly recommend it.

Been playing a billion different types of games, but the one I've been sticking around the most is Marvel Heroes.

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

I calculated the odds of this succeeding against the odds I was doing something incredibly stupidů and I went ahead anyway.

Well that was my experience of the 5 or so hours I spent playing it. I had no trouble sneaking past guys for the most part, but it just really drags on and on, since a slow walk over gravel can alert guys through stone walls, and the only way to sneak without making noise is by moving at a snails pace. The "Alert Phase" of the guards feels too punishing as well, I mean I know the goal of stealth games is to not get caught... But the guards can outrun you and take forever to take out, it doesn't really feel like I have any sort of chance if I get caught.

This is also kind of the reason I had trouble getting back into the first three splinter cell games after so many years, they're just mindnumbingly slow paced, and the enemy AI is kinda wonky.

Finished Dead island: Riptide yesterday. I thought it was a DLC, not a sequel, for bloody ages. Why I only recently bought it. I found it rather similar to Dead Island, though with a few extra features. I really don't get why those two games got so much flak, I liked 'em. Very fun.

They received flak because the first game had a very well received, emotional trailer to go with it, the final game has you playing as 4 stereotyped characters, with a pretty forgettable story, with none of the emotion from the trailer. Graphics aren't very pretty, full of visual glitches and stuff. I did enjoy the first one though, I really dug the analog melee system. I look forward to Dead Island 2, which looks a lot more tongue in cheek, as well as techlands new zombie game "Dying Light".

Yeah, there was that. It definitely didn't come close to living up to the hype, but let's be honest- how many video games do? I guess I got it long enough after it came out that I'd forgotten the hype, so could enjoy it for what it was.

Yeah I definitely still had a lot of fun with it.

I've been playing Quantum of Solace. It's a mix of Casino Royale and QoS. It's actually a pretty decent game, imo. A LOT better than 007 Legends. Legends has so many bugs that I'm regretting it every time I sit and play it, but I want to finish it, damn it.

Basically Goldeneye Reloaded > Quantum of Solace > 007 Legends.

I'm trying to find the others like Agent Under Fire, Everything or Nothing and From Russia with Love. i'm sorry i get such a lady boner for James Bond, daniel craig or not
