Surprisingly Claptrap doesn't make me want to ram my head into a paper shredder for once.


I found out that my favorite character in that game isn't Ash or Glados, It's Sam & Max.

This is the correct choice. Check out their adventure games and TV series if you haven't yet.

I'm a little half and half, but I'll give it a try.

Really been enjoying System Shock 2. It definitely shows its age, but the pacing is done extremely well and I like that the game is more built around managing your resources and inventory rather than using brute force in every scenario. While it's not pissing yourself scary, it does quite a good job of building up tension and has a nice, creepy atmosphere with some unsettling enemies to help play this up. There are minor annoyances and the like, but I'm loving it for the most part.

Dark Souls, atm. <.< Running with a leather armor/halberd build, focusing on strength and endurance. >:3

Eventually I'll probably breakout the Skyrim and Civ5 and Crusader Kings II.

Thomas Was Alone makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Conveys the idea of friendship with rectangles, puzzles, and narration and actually does a great job of combining these elements and injecting a lot of personality, both for the characters and the game itself.

I only ended up getting like two games this time. Couldn't get into the hype this time for whatever reason, maybe it was the trading card metagame or something.

Valve basically released trading cards for certain games that can be combined to make a badge for your profile, I think. Not really any reason to do it and they're not forcing it or anything, but there was a minor affinity for them for a while that I don't really care about.

Dishonored is fun, but I'd kind of prefer if it wasn't pretending to have a story. Would've been cool if they had Corvo as just an assassin for hire, fulfilling missions for the various sides of the conflict; that way you could still see the city change with your actions, but without the revolution you know nothing about in the story that you have no stakes in other than to get back your daughter figure who you see for like four minutes. But yeah, really love the mechanics and how they weave into each other, keeping things interesting while still leaving the approach up to the player. Lots of fun.

I wish that Snatcher has a reboot.

Some of you guys might be interested in Sir, you are being hunted. A british game heavily influenced by the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series, in which the player is hunted across the British countryside by steampunk robots.

Here is the kickstarter pageand the place where you can pre-order

I currently finished a run of replaying Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, and have now started up a replay of the sequel. I do love getting wrapped up replaying old games I've loved forever...
