Damn, I had to replay that last part of "The Hunt" chapter over and over again because I suck.  Frustrating as Fuck.  I can't wait until I finish this stupid game.

Why is steam download management so stupid. I want to download multiple games concurrently and I don't want to pause them while playing a different game.

Yeah it get's annoying....especially when you buy a indie bundle or a bunch of cheap games and it decides which one it downloads for you

I'd guess it's just being cautious and assuming that (1) you want all your CPU power focused on the game you're playing and not running downloads in the background and (2) that you might be playing something online, so you don't want to run downloads to increase your latency.

 

Just Alt-Tab out and click the pause/unpause and it should at least restart the queue.

Beat Infamous 2 as a goodie goodie. Now I'm working on the bad side.

While I still like the setting, story and enemy variety more from the first one, the powers are handled better in the sequel. Loved that ice launch.

I hated having to fight the same bosses over and over, even the end boss was a repeat. It was cool near the beginning when that first giant boss appears, but the thrill wore off as I fought a half-dozen more of the fuckers.

Infamous 2 is much shorter than the first one, and while the missions are varied enough, some of them are simple and completed in a couple minutes. I can only assume they hope you play the user-created missions to pad your playtime, but the rewards for doing user-crafted missions just aren't worth it.

Overall, it ain't a bad game. Zeke is the best thing about it, though. Ice launch is up there too.

I liked the first game better too, for the most part.

I don't think it's shorter, at least not if you're going for platinum... I'd have to go look up my save file times to check though.

And Zeke is seriously just about the *worst* things in those games.  Absolutely fucking terrible.

That's definitely the line of thought they took..  I seem to have a lot of problems getting steam to process multiple concurrent downloads.

The powers in the second game are definitely much better.  The ice launch serves a much needed niche since verticality is such a big part of the games.  Definitely preferred NYC to new orleans though.

Its the fact that Zeke is so terrible that makes him good. I paid more attention to things when Zeke was there because I was waiting for him to do something stupid.

I think it depends on your tolerence for that sort of thing -- I just find him annoying but it's like those movies that some people say are "so bad they're good".  MST3k and all that.  Not my bag though.

 

The Festival of Blood standalone was kind of decent too, if you're looking for more Infamous.  The blood teleport in that should be in any Infamous game from here forward in some fashion, that move was amazing.

I'll move on to Festival of Blood as soon as I'm finished with my dark-side playthru. How long is it?

Pretty short compared to the games.  5-8 hours max?

Zeke was much more tolerable in 2 than he was in 1. I actually think he had a decent arc between the two games.

I had my first day back at work yesterday since my ankle injury. Ankle was fine, but since I'm no longer used to standing for 8 hours, my feet were freaking killing me at the end of the day. Glad I have today off to rceover.

That site can be majorily fucked up as the times are all over the place.  I'm almost positive it took me more than 4 hours to 100% and get all the trophies.

 

I remember trying to compile some data from it when people were bitching that the $15 (on sale for $12 week 1 if you had PS+) Guacamelee was only around 6 hours long to do the Story, about 10 to do everything other than platinum and 15 to platinum; I was mainly looking at games like Super Metroid and Symphony of the Night and the data gets so erratic that all the averages are kind of screwy.

 

It's a good tool for getting a guesstimate, but it's definitely not near enough to accurate on a lot of titles for various reasons.  
Another good tool is using the thread in General Gaming here on CAG:

Why would I ask a stupid question like that?  It was party time, not work time.  Booze drinking and chick hunting time.
