Well school started so I haven't been gaming recently...aside from what the boys and I call rematches. Which is a round or two of SupCom2. Awesome little gem of an RTS imho. It's simple, and now my 6yo and 12yo can steam roll me, but I am able to hold my own and sometimes get them back! Most fun I've had with gaming in years.

I have been playing some Planetary Annihilation which is just about to go GOLD. Yes!

I am also still fiddling with Star Citizen, Elite: Dangerous and my ultimate space sim fallback and my most played of the 3, Evochron Mercenary.

Beyond that...just eagerly awaiting the remastered release of Homeworld and Homeworld 2....

I actually thought about playing it again and then remembered that when I left, it was dominated by rank 90+ Assaults floating around on their jetpack indefinitely because they're near invincible with all their upgrades, while raining down projectile C4 charges onto advancing infantry.
Meanwhile a single Infiltrator could run past everyone abd 'throw' an anti-vehicle mine onto the ground, exploding your Sunderer without it even moving or triggering the mine.

Sounds like a fun game!!! I love the games where 2 or 3 classes can completely wreck the balance of a game!!!

Actually semi addicted to Hearthstone though I'm a little ashamed of the fact :)

Other than that I've been messing around on Crysis 1, I agree with the earlier post. Even on Vanilla DX10 Very High it still looks pretty awesome.

Timothy Duncan and Timothy Pulver are geniuses.

Playing them right now. Hard, but sooooo good. You wan't proper storytelling in your turn based strategy games, play those. (Heroes III WoG campaign)

And Aurora. I was playing Emperor: Rise of the Middle kingdom but there's a bug in a campaign and for some reason I can't access the cheat meny so there just is no way to win that level. It's annoying.

When I'm feeling for a longer sitting (I can never game for long periods these days, partly because I actually don't have the time and partly because I'm kinda bored with the concept) I'm working through Neverwinter Nights. Never played it when it came out, it's time for it.

It's certainly fun and worth playing, especially if you're a sci-fi shooter, Tribes, kinda person. The amount of players on a battlefield at anyone time is really impressive and quite a step forward for online PC gaming. I have a chuckle when I hear kids going on about how intense BF4 or Destiny is on the consoles with thirty-two or sixty-four players :)
Unfortunately the RPG/ranking elements lend itself to the bad nature of online gaming and everyone is out to manipulate and exploit until it becomes stale.

If they'd never had a ranking system and never allowed C4 to be thrown, the game would be wildly different and I suspect more niche but with quality over quantity.

Tribes? Real Tribes? Tribes 2 even, from over 10 years ago when you put more than 50 people on a server??

Almost had me until your last sentence, 1st paragraph :)

I've been playing Hearthstone on daily basis just for quest. Other than that, I played AoE2, AoE3 or CoH2 every few nights and on weekends, depending on availability of my friends.
Truth is, I've bought several games that I think I want to play like Bioshock 1-3, new Simcity, Batman AA & AC, Witcher 2, Men of War, Arma II, etc, but I don't even click the shortcut at all.
Guess I'm getting old *cry*

Just finished playing Resident Evil Revelations on PC. Great game and for my opinion, the best version available (much better than console versions). Revelations is more like old RE games and thats the thing that makes it so great. Good story, fantastic gameplay and ok graphics.

Far more better game than the crappy Resident Evil 6.

Nothing will be quite as awesome as the old Tribes or Delta Force games - our first online experience of 'lots' of people playing together.
But in that spirit and the fact that it's free to play, I'd advise any one whom likes that type of gaming to definitely give it a try. It takes a while to learn but in a week or so you should get it.

Bioshock 1, Arma II, Witcher 2 and Batman AA would be a good start - best of the list and gives you diversity in genre.

I finished The Witcher in 28.5 hours which apparently means I rushed it...but I definitely didn't feel like I did. It was a good game, looking forward to playing 2, already have it installed. I am playing through Sleeping Dogs right now. Might start State of Decay after since I have the PS3 controller sitting here for SD lol. Sleeping Dogs isn't as good as I hoped it was going to be. The controls feel clunky running around and the gameplay just feels meh. Fighting is about the only thing done well, the driving sucks, the shooting is kinda lame, etc. The big fights with melee weapons are fun and the story actually isn't too bad, but just kinda meh. They do have some good music selections though.

I have been playing natural selection 2 for 2 years now. I keep trying to play other games, but nothing can hold me. I try something else and only want ns2 again. I am at 1350+ hours now too. The game has a steep learning curve that once past makes the game incredibly rewarding. The FPS and RTS mechanics make the game impossible for me to get bored. So still, 2 years later I am still playing ns2.

I thought Sleeping Dogs was solid but I was also playing with a Microsoft Xbox360 controller. I did grab the mouse for shooting because, well, controllers always suck at that.

Most other forums I chat on people are in denial about gamepads. Nice to hear people talking sense about their limitations. I really hope Valve comes up with something better, it's about time.

I tried to go back and play GRID Autosport some more, but I still find it boring, and have yet to finish it after getting it right after release.

Even though Metro isn't challenging enough to offer good replay value, I'm finding 20333 Redux more exciting that Autosport. Don't know if I'll bite on LL Redux though. On PC it seems kinda pointless if you've played the original.

The game I'm most anticipating lately is Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. It comes out in a month and it's combat animations, gore, Nemesis system, rideable beasts, and rune upgrades have me by the balls. Ubi is crying foul claiming they've ripped off their code and animations, I don't buy it.

Monolith worked on AC 1&2 yes, and came up with the air assassinate animation, but SoM is built on their own Lith Tech engine, and if anyone should know how to make near identical looking animations with different code it's the originators of them.

Ubi are just too busy lying to customers to have any credibility lately.

I bought that game a while back and it kinda sucked. They probably have the same selection of maps they had then which was like three...a neighborhood map, a prison map, and one other one I think. The game mechanics were there and everything it just wasn't very good.


Also, the only way to play open world games is with a controller. GTA, Just Cause, Sleeping Dogs, etc. With a keyboard and mouse they feel terrible and are not made for that IMO. I prefer using a controller for games like that, I use my PS3 controller to emulate a 360 controller.

To be honest, I beat Sleeping Dogs first with keyboard/mouse then replayed it with Xbox 360 controller. 90% of the time, the gameplay was better with the Xbox 360 controller because that 90%, you're either running around, punching people, or driving (all things joysticks excel at). The remaining 10% starts at about 2/3 through the game where you start running into gun battles. The joystick fell flat on its face but luckily the engine supports Xbox 360 controller and keyboard/mouse inputs simultaneously. I had the controller in one hand for movement and the mouse in the other to aim and fire. 'Twas a nice combination.

I should really replay that game. They added the DLC for that super car and OMG is it super. I want to replay the game having access to that car throughout the entire game instead of just for DLCs at the end of the game.

I do miss the old True Crime games though. Sleeping Dogs is a more refined product than True Crime ever was but Sleeping Dogs is not True Crime and True Crime is truly dead. That makes me sad. :( Nothing like doing Matrix moves single shotting perps in the head in every direction in slow motion. Nor is there any game with that sense of satisfaction of grabbing a big ass gun from the trunk of an unmarked cop car before opening a serious can of justice in an apartment building. FordGT90Concept drifts into the past for some serious nostalgia waxing...


I played Farming Simulator 2013 most of today. I was high on pain meds for at least half of the day though so it isn't like I could handle much more. :(

I believe later this month Sleeping Dogs gets a re-release with the Definitive Edition. Yeah, basically they are getting in on the redux bandwagon too. Still, it's a fun, immersive game, that I think I will play again (Did the whole thing Mouse/Keyboard as I always do on every game...don't understand the hate for them) as soon as I finish SC Blacklist, which I'm playing now. Finished Dishonored last week with high chaos...I'd like to go back and do it low chaos too....they just made it SO fun to kill people in inventive ways in Dishonored! After that, start on my second 100 hours of State of Decay....

Not playing too much of anything seriously. Put in a little time on Metro Redux and the odd couple heists in PayDay 2
