Provided that they don't spend a lot of future development time working on new features for the DLC, then it should be a win for people who bought the base game early. It just means the devs will have more funds to keep developing new features, right?

Spore - Previous games from Will Wright had insane amounts of depth and replayability, and the descriptions of what Spore would be were amazing! Suffice to say I got the game on release, as well as getting a friend to pick it up on my recommendation. Actually playing the game was incredibly disappointing. The detached nature of each section of gameplay just didn't live up to the hype, and the game was just incredibly shallow when compared with past hits from Maxis. I felt pretty guilty about my friend paying $90 for it, since he was pretty disappointed too.

No Mans Sky was a pretty similar experience, although without the pedigree of previous games from the studio to set a high a bar (Although Joe Danger was pretty fun :D )

@cloudymusic: Thanks for the reminder. I loved the other Cyan world games so I've picked this one up too now.

@giantlennonx_x: If you didn't like the storytelling of Console Wars, then I'd say that you'll be pretty turned off by Masters of Doom as well. The book goes a long way in trying to dramatise the events, and it's a bit much some times.

Personally, I loved it, but then again I thought Console Wars was great too. They just seem to capture that specific era of my childhood so well.

Depends what course you're doing. If it's a science or computer oriented course I would stick with a Windows PC, as there's a lot of software in that area that can't be run on a Mac. For most other courses I'd say you should be fine with a Mac.

Lost Winds for the Wii, it was a cutesy motion platformer made by the same dude who made the Elite space sims.

FINISHED IN 2015

Broken Age - pretty fun, but it was never going to live up to expectations

Westerado - Awesome little game. Underappreciated too. go play it!

FTL - This must be the 5th or 6th time I've finished it. Plus all those times I didn't make it to the end. Love this game!

GTAV - Finally! I got it on PS3 but only played through about 2/3 of the story. Finally got around to finishing it on PC. FPS view was actually really good! I played most of the game like that.

The Talos Principle - Another awesome game. Really enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone looking for a more slow paced, cerebral kind of puzzle game

Jazzpunk - Meh, it was wacky, but that was about all. At least it wasn't too long.

MGSV:GZ - Got through the main mission and one of the side quests. This actually got me pretty excited for the full game.

Dungeon of the Endless - This game is loads of fun. I've managed to finish it once, and have tried a couple more times without success. I'll definitely be playing this for a while.

Dangan Ronpa - Really enjoyed this, even though I had read some spoilers before I started. Recommend to anyone that liked 999/VLR etc.

GAMES IN PROGRESS 2015

Wolfenstein:New Order - I've tried to get into this a couple of times, but it just doesn't seem to grab me. The lack of cloud saves doesn't help, I've had to go back to the beginning twice now.

State of Decay - I really enjoyed this game, but gave up when my main guy died. I've started it again and am still enjoying it, but yet to finish the main story.

Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments - I bought this a while back, but I've only gotten to the second case. I really enjoy parts of it and think there are some great ideas in there, but it mostly just seems boring.

Dark Souls II DLC - I finished the main game, but I bought the DLC a while back and want to get through it with a different build. It's pretty fun the second time around, I've got a much better idea of what to do/where to go.

Pillars of Eternity - I never really played the BG games when they came out, sure I dabbled a little, but never really figured out how to play. I've got PoE, but I still feel like I don't really grasp how it works or how I should be playing. Enjoying the story, but I've put it to the side for now.

Dying Light - Really enjoyed playing this. For a game about brutal zombie slaughter it's pretty relaxing. I got to the second area and stopped playing a while back, but recently picked it up again and it still seems fun.

Borderlands the Pre Sequel - Against my hints to the contrary, one of my BL obsessed friends gifted this to me. I really don't want to play it, but I kinda feel like I have to now. UGh....

Tales from the Borderlands - See above. It also doesn't help that I'm getting pretty burned out on Telltale's schtick.

Shadow Of Mordor - I paid full price for this based on the reviews and I'm just not enjoying it. Given the money I forked over for it I feel like I should keep playing. Everyone says that it takes a while before it gets good, but I dunno, I don't see it myself.

The Evil Within - Another game I paid full price for based on reviews. It has moments where it seems fun, but then they bury it underneath some annoying boss fight or encounter. I know that survival horror is meant to be stressful and ammo scarce, but this game doesn't feel tense, just badly designed.

Resident Evil HD Remaster - I was really enjoying this, but then I ran out of ribbons and lost 2 hours of progress :(

Invisible Inc. - Just picked this up, it seems ok, but I'm not really into the turn based stuff. It's growing on me though.

Kerbal Space Program - Sweet jesus, this game is amazing. I've gone back in for some more since v1 came out, but I was never very smart about it so I haven't got far with the career mode yet.

Dangan Ronpa 2 - Started playing it, but was still a bit burned out from the first one. I'll definitely go back after I've had a bit of a break from the world of DR.

Fun times!
