While I agreed with Patrick's write-up about the paradox that is Aiden Pierce, I don't generally give a damn about articles.

Mass Effect 2

Half of the Assassin's Creed games

- I start to lose interest in those long RPGs

Going through my Steam library right now

Games I suggest

  • Jamestown - Local Co-op and I manually put this at the top of my list for a reason
  • Pixel Junk Monsters Ultimate - A TD even my wife enjoyed. Though I was sick of this game by the time we beat every single level.
  • Risk of Rain - Maybe, maybe not? Keep an eye on Humble Bundle for this one on the cheap
  • Awesomenauts - She'll be ok playing against bots. Though if she craves any kind of story then this won't do.
  • Sanctum 1 & 2 - Not local co-op, you'll need your separate PCs
  • Portal 2 - Local co-op, first-person puzzle madness
  • Orcs Must Die! 2 - Not local co-op, you'll need your separate PCs
  • Trine 2
  • Dustforce - It's co-op
  • Deathspank - My wife likes to play these, but she hates when I scream "HEARTS" to remind her to heal us.
  • Magicka - again, not local, and you'll need a couple of decently powerful machines to run it smoothly. This game is weirdly demanding.
  • Rock of Ages - has a decently fun versus mode.
  • Dungeonland - Pretty sure it's free 2 play. so nothing lost there.

Games we both felt indifferent about

  • Rocketbirds - The opening cinematic and the music are great. But the controls are probably not fluid enough for her to like. The atmosphere and game is kinda lovable though.
  • Hammerwatch
  • Spelunky
  • Full Mojo Rampage - rogue likes seem to not be our cup of tea. Risk of Rain was an acception for me alone.

Games I suggest avoiding

  • Dead Horde
  • Sacred Citadel - We both found this game to be just boring.

I voted Normal, or Medium, but sometimes if I just want to chill out with game and absolutely not get pissed about anything then I put that shit on easy and have myself a nice relaxing time.

I like number 2. It could definitely kill troll comments and spam bots.

While I disagree with your rant that the Imperial system makes as much sense as the Metric system, here's a couple of points that I think we can ALL get behind.

  • Timezones are stupid - We should all be on One World Time (OWT)
  • Time Change (Daylight Savings) is stupid - Why don't we just start the work day an hour earlier in the winter?

I was tripping for a second. I thought I was on Polygon and wondering why in the hell this was reading like Alex Navarro had written it. And then I scrolled back up.

PS. that's not a bad thing. You write like you talk, Alex, and it makes for some easy to understand reading. At least for people whose primary language is English.

I'm leaving out the suggestion of a gaming laptop, because if you are considering a console then I assume that your class needs are already met.

There's aren't many differences between a console and a PC any more. There are plenty of PC games that support local co-op, and running the PC to your TV should be relatively painless in a dorm. Actually it's relatively painless, period.

What's the price on a new console? About $400? You can build you a decent gaming rig for $600-$700. And now visit STEAM to see games that are 75%-80% off, while their console counterparts are at least double the price.

+1 for the PC is the multitude of F2P games that exist. There's a lot of content out there that can has the potential to hold your attention, even your friends' attention as well, at little to no cost to you.

This game is absolutely worth $5. Hell, I'd push it for $10.

Personally, I had issues with the controller controls. I cursed the game, rage-quit, and all but gave up on it for a couple of weeks but there was this something that drew me back to it. This time around I went the mouse/keyboard route and the experience was MUCH better. This seemed to improve my commands being received and accepted by my AI partners. Just my 2cents.
