Now playing - 2018

L4D2 "Confogl" matches. Confogl is a custom server setup that decreases spawn timers, increases infected damage, removes weapons beyond Tier 1 (smgs, pump shotguns, hunting rifles (of which you only get one per team)), removes health packs, and makes other items like pipe bombs and pills rarer. On top of that the matches I've been getting into have been using the !buffsi setting, which increases SI damage and decreases their cooldown. I'm actually pretty good, but shit going wrong is an inevitability these sorts of matches, with those balance changes. Thankfully these are just between friends and not actually something in the competitive "scene".

just finished bioshock 2 ( buying/playing games half a year to a year too late is great for your wallet :D )

+the setting is still totally awesome

+the different weapons /plasmids /ammo types/ upgrade possibilitys are diverse, fun and across the board useful

+its polished and properly qaed i dont think i encountered a single bug ( except maybe for a ragdoll arm intersecting into some railing ... everbodys got that shit )

+story and ending are better than the first one (you heard me !)

+no bossfight that is not supported by the core mechanics

+no escort mission that is not supported by the core mechanics

+horde-mini-game that can be initilized within the campaign is challenging and fun.

+tons of decision making goes into every kill and every interaction with the world ... this thing is bursting out of all seams with DESIGN

-too much too loot sometimes i was just spinning around the camera and hitting use to pick up everything around me.

-enemys dont give enough feedback when hit sometimes it feels like you are playing fallout or some other turn based rpg

-when combat gets really intense there is way too much stuff to keep track off which stressed me out quit a bit

-locations within rapture are not diverse/characteristic enough

-i think i missed a lot of water cooler moments by not look in the right direction and the right time.

all around awesome game 8/10 as good if not better than bioshock 1

Just picked it up, only played a couple hours.

Also been playing the new Castlevania. Game must have cost like 100 million dollars cause they introduce characters and then toss them aside never to be seen again like it's nothing. Not sure what to make of it yet. Around halfway through.

Throughout my entire time playing I was regularly thinking how much of an epic job it must been producing so many detailed environments crammed with detail/assets. Due to the pace of the game you blitz through them really quickly, and not just that but the game is also extremely long for a current-gen game.

Finished Lords of Shadow. What an amazing game. I have absolutely no idea how they will top this in a sequel. They threw the kitchen sink into this one. I'm eagerly awaiting the Resurrection DLC.

Agreed. I forced myself to slow down and take in the environments in many places, including Pan's temple and the music box. Baba was downright creepy.

Nice SpeedTrees

As long as you don't mention SpeedTrees around the graphics programmers you're ok ;).

You forgot to mention that it is possibly one of the most pointless sequels ever, though :v

I enjoyed it of course, but all I could think through the entire game was "I just got totally milked of my money."

I'll get my copy today, we should do some laggy fights again!

It's fairly complicated and every character has a death touch, though.

As soon as I finished reading the post on Rock Paper Shotgun I couldn't help but to run out immediately (metaphorically) and buy Xenus 2: White Gold off of Gamersgate. It's pretty good so far. Like Far Cry 2 with Deus Ex elements, light RPG stuff (you level up and at each level up you can get a Fallout esque perk, otherwise all stats depend on your gun and armor and any temporary medicating, such as drinking an energy drink or limb injury). Or for another comparison, like a nice, happy go lucky tropical wartorn hellhole version of STALKER. Gameplay-wise it's actually significantly more streamlined and friendly than any game mentioned thus far, though it's got its technical issues. Especially noteworthy is the english translation, which is a) an atrocity, and b) Cuts out after the intro cutscene, leaving nothing but silent text, as well as silent most everything else- sound effects are bugged so that only one or two can play at once. If music is playing gunfire is silenced, which had resulted in multiple unexpected deaths for me while I was doing inventory management while thinking I was safe. If you drop the sound files from the Russian version in the Eng version of the game suddenly everything's peachy again. Downloading these probably breaks a rule or two but then they're linked on the developer's own forums without repercussion, and there doesn't seem to be much of a chance of a fix, so I'm certainly not going to say anything.

For some reason I find Columbian peasants speaking Russian to a (I'm pretty sure, although in the intro he sounds like some sort of weird as shit combination of welsh and new zealand) American special agent (sent to their country by the RIAA to deal with deadly cocaine causing rappers to drop like flies) is really hilarious.

Also the main character is a STALKER nerd, you can babble about chernobyl and pripyat to anyone who mentions giant animals or sea creatures to you. "HEY THEY'RE JUST LIKE THOSE MUTANTS AT CHERNOBYL YOU KNOW ABOUT CHERNOBYL RIGHT *goes into the history*" I've had that conversation (different setup but same topic) like three times now with random dudes loitering about.

FPSRPG are rare, especially onces that are cool with not having ball busting difficulty and inexplicable game mechanics (the closest this gets is the weapon upgrades. At first I thought you were going to be taking guns apart, two worlds style, because of a "disassemble" button on that screen in the inventory, but as it turns out it's just weapon mod items you buy and apply to guns yourself (at risk of breaking it) or for a fee at certain guys, like faction quartermasters). I'd recommend White Gold to anyone who digs STALKER and wants to play it on a tropical island while making their avatar chase cocaine with absinthe and an enema.

Edit: It probably helps my first impression that I was listening to Mickey Avalon while playing.

Also I just checked my email and I've got an invite to the Darkspore beta :o
