Starcraft 2 - got a f-ton of achievements and such, slightly improving my 2v2 1v1 etc abilities n such... I think I'm sort of addicted to that now... So yea...

Also I quit minecraft. It may be f-in awesome but I want to freakin fight people and kick their asses. (Via virtual medium.) I guess I'm gonna still have to update that Hexen texture pack and also the Doom one...

Portal 2 in singleplayer.

It's better than the original imo and seems very polished, as you'd expect from Valve. I really like how all the levels aren't just based on test chambers anymore and there are plenty of "outdoorish" parts where you have to explore and think differently (e.g how to proceed, rather than how to solve this whole puzzle and so on). The NPCs add a nice touch to the game too and fit in well, and in overall the pacing seems better than in the original, there are more "action" parts and so on. Athmosphere and sound design is great. Sometimes I just wish I could proceed and keep enjoying the game instead of having to stop and think.

Companion cubes and cake seem to be missing so far too tho, but I guess those memes got annoying already.

since I needed to buy Limbo for my PS3 and needed to buy something else with it, I found CTR on the PSN store and noticed it was #8 on my top 10 list, so i am going to check it out again.

Vasile, you're possibly going to have a hard time with the 3rd hub (Egypt). . . Many puzzles there that require quite a bit of thinking and sniffing around.

Oh yeah, HeXen II ftw. And about the 3rd hub, beware some stupid bugs which would prevent you from crossing it, thus restarting the whole game. Not cool. (at least how I remember. I haven't touched HeXen II for 3 years, but I remember something like that happening to me.)

Quake 4. God damn this is an amazing FPS. I thought it'd be kind of cliche and
when you become a Strogg, your friends will all turn against you so you have to fight both marine and strogg, but you fight with your own team continuously instead!
I was very happy with that, I must admit. The guns are fun to use and the constant new ones with modifications as you go along is refreshing.

I'm also playing Brink, it's not AS SHIT as I thought it was, but it's still pretty bad. I recently finished The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. It's replaced Mass Effect 2 as my #1 favourite game. The story was amazing and the character interactions made me feel attached to them, and when the ending came I felt kinda sad that it was all over. I foresee a second run through soon!

Wait what? When I say fight with your own team I mean they stay allied with you, if that's what confused you? XD

The only sign of your friends turning against you is when you return to the Hannibal and get cold welcomes. I don't remember ever fighting marines during the game, only Strogg.

Too bad that, after that Q4 ending, they didn't make a "Doom 3 ROE type" expansion pack to conclude the story.

I fixed what I meant in my earlier post. I said that I was thankful it wasn't going to turn into you vs. everything on the planet and actually made sure that you stayed allied with the marines. It was just written in a way that had 2 interpretations. -_-; sigh

Oh I see. I did actually like that near the end Quake 4 became the kind of game Quake 2 was, where you're a one-man army.

Couldn't agree more with you Tony, regarding an expansion. It ends with a painful cliffhanger where the general breaks up the victory dance of the team to say "Kane, you got new orders.".

I read somewhere (can't remember, may check it sometimes) there was supposed to be an expansion for Quake 4, but scrapped because of Quake 4's dodgy reception.

Also, Quake 4 is quite a space marine cliche, either way.

You are right, the expansion was cancelled and what had already been made became bonus content included in a patch.

I've messed with Q4's console and found some 3rd person adjust cvar. 3rd person working good but crosshair and all stats hud disappears.

Also I've figured out the problem with cryostasis. It was RAM, not video card. They are burnt but I never have been able to understand why computer was running everything else normal. Anyway I didn't like it. Finished yesterday and removed immediately. I've never played crap like this before. It's even worse than Adam's Venture.

I rather liked Cryostasis.
But, the guns ruined the game for me.

Aside from Cryostasis running like crap and some annoying mental echo scenes I am having a good time playing it. Even 5 levels in I still get startled by some enemies.

But I have some problems with it: What the hell is the purpose of the stamina meter if you can only run 5 meters before it is completely gone? And the guns need some serious beef-up. The first rifle you find is not a small gun, it fires large projectiles that can in real life take down a bear.

Realistic? Give me a break. The guns are ridiculously weak, you have less stamina than Homer Simpson and somehow you magically heal your wounds by standing by a heat source.

They're tried...
Guns are weak I know. Using its stock for melee would better than firing, i think.

Still Borderlands. Trying to level up to fight the hidden secret boss, who is very powerful. Imagine Serious Sam trying to beat Ugh Zan with pistols.

Cryostasis still.

God damn it the mental echo bits are annoying. Some are piss easy and short while others are cruel and unusual punishment and yet others are very easy once figured out but figuring them out requires lots of trial and error. The difficulty curve is all over the place basically. I'm now in level 6 (Ties) and there are whooping 3 mental echo bits almost back to back. One was easy enough, the next took some time to figure out while the third forced me to watch a LP because there were so many rapidly flickering lights around that I could barely see what the hell I was doing.

But when our hero is in reality I find the game quite enjoyable. It is not just some of the earlier enemy encounters that scared the living shit out of me, one axeman near the end of level 4 startled me a lot. Usually I stop being scared or startled after the first few scares. Impressive job I say.

I am really confused by the patching by the way. According to the exe the game is already at a higher version than 1.0 but then I find out that I don't got that water gun that was one of the 1.1 patch features. But that is only half the headache, there are god knows how many versions of the patch. Most likely I got the European retail version but there really is no way to be certain.
