I just finished Far Cry 3. Fun game. Though, I can't help but feeling that FC3 and Tomb Raider were not all that disimilar.

Now on to Dishonored. Deciding between a panther or murderfest playthrough. I guess I did a panther-esque style on my first run through, so probably gonna do a high chaos run this time.

I got High Chaos (bad ending) on my 1st play-through of Dishonored.

i feel like i need to play minveras den again. i completely forget what it was about, i played bioshock 2 three or four times, but minervas den just once, for some reason.

 

Also - anybody play burial at sea yet? I just finished it today, enjoyed it. Was wondering what other people thought of it. The ties to Bioshock 1 were definitely interesting.

Oooh - I played Burial At Sea, Episodes 1 and 2.

I liked them both - but I certainly preferred Episode 2.

 

The change of making Ep 2 you actually play as Elizabeth; more emphasis on survival-horror elements; and making the game feel MUCH more stealth-orientated was awesome.

 

Also, the pacing felt much better, as well. In BAS Ep 1 - you could pretty much roam around for a good while, before crap even hit the fan for a good while - then, it's over. Ep 2 does a better job of mixing this up on and off, here and there.

 

And of course - BAS Ep 2 concludes the whole series really well. You really do need to play EVERY Bioshock game made by Irrational (Bioshock 1; Infinite; BAS Ep 1; BAS Ep 2) in order before you touch BAS Ep 2.

 

 

Also need input on what to play next again...I'm torn between Far Cry 3, Call of Cthulhu: Corners of the Earth, RAGE, Prince of Persia: Sands of Time, and Alan Wake

Far Cry 3.

Just about every girl I'm friends with and girlfriend I have had has been into video games... The new one is into your typical Xbox 360 FPSs like most young girls in this day and age.

 

I was genuinely surprised when she said she was into Call of Duty 2, though. No, not Modern Warfare 2, CoD 2. That's almost a classic at this point.

CoD2 was pretty damn good, I must say.

What game is the girl in "How I Really Am" playing?

Looks like some kind of PC MMO, maybe?

I don't understand these pictures. The "ideal gamer" is playing some Xbox FPS about shooting curtains, while the "true gamer" doesn't seem to have any games but probably can rob a Software Etc. with all those guns.

Maybe she's (supposedly) "ideal" b/c she is a girl...

So, how many girls you know actually are into video-games? :P

 

"Bleh" @ she ain't playing some games on her PC, though.

So about those Amazon deals...

I know, it's tiring to keep seeing Rockstar deals on Amazon DVG...

but at least Rockstar shows up to the Amazon DVG sales....

 

Same goes for EA, as well.

true PC gamer ≠ ideal image of PC gamer

Thank God.

Yes, I'm definitely a "true PC gamer" - sticking to my "PC gaming only" guns since after the original PSX. I'm all about PC gaming - period. I live, breathe, eat, drink, and sleep PC gaming.

 

I'm definitely NOT the ideal "PC gamer" - that's namely b/c I don't often go out to gaming shows and conventions like PAX or anything like that. I'm definitely NOT a social butterfly by any means. In an ideal world - yeah, I'd be a social butterfly.

 

But, you could also make a debate I'm not entirely a "true gamer." A "true gamer" would likely spend the $ and have Microsoft consoles (XBox+X360+XB1) for their exclusives (Halo series, Fable series, Gears of War series, etc) + Sony consoles (PS2,3,4) for their exclusives (The Last of Us, God of War series, Demon's Souls, Heavy Rain, Beyond: Two Souls, etc).

But "screw that noise," for now - not unless I can get any of those consoles + some console games quite cheap! ;)

I was just going to say, I hope those games get adopted by Steam. 

Would be nice.

But, how many companies are going to put money into keeping their OLD games going?

 

 


Even just single player of the first half of the old Halo would be amazing.

FTFY. ;)

So I'm trying to get a list together of the PC games affected (it's mostly Nintendo/PC games that are getting fucked here), just found out the Halo: CE for PC is among the titles...

We can dream, but...

If only M$ would integrate Steamworks into Halo: CE....

What I want to know is, in this day and age when don't you have access to the internet?

Always online is the same as offline to me because....I'm always online

When my ISP (Comcast) has issues.

Literally - it was out this past Sunday from 11am to at least 2:30pm.

I don't know exactly when it came back b/c when I got home (after 5pm), everything was fine.

 

Also, if D3 is on "Maintenance" - then, I'm screwed. Can't play it.

 

Why should I be at the mercy of the dev's + pub's in a game, in which I had no problem going solo with companions (bots)?

I could kinda understand IF they FORCED gamers to play ONLY w/ other live-players online - but, they don't even go that route.

 

EDIT:

I lead my groups like I lead WoW raids....

...which would be addicted to whatever Blizzard game you're playing, I presume? ;)

 

EDIT 2:

#ToasterWorldProblems

I wanna know what #CylonWorldProblems are...
