Looks good and all, but since it's not coming to PC any time soon I won't be able to play it. And even if it did, I think I'd rather play Borderlands 2 still. And re-read the Halo books. I don't mind being called a dork/nerd/geek, but those books are actually pretty good.

@nethlem: Yeah, as Syndrom said, there isn't a PC version of Shadow Complex. 360 exclusive. If it was on PC I would get it instantly.

@themanwithnoplan: Huh, will have to remember that! Didn't think it was that kind of game.

Damn, the talk about Shadow Complex makes me want to play that again, but I really don't use my 360 anymore. Anything as good (or even close) to that on PC?

Also, Dan is really into that difficult platforming. Now I want to watch him play something like Super Meat Boy...

Not sure about that kind of Moblins being there, but if this is set during the Ocarina of Time period it can actually be canon and put into the timeline. If your are crazy enough to enjoy that thing, which I am.
The skeleton teaching you advanced fighting moves in Twilight Princess is after all the spirit of Link from Ocarina of Time and Majoras Mask. So if he went on doing this stuff before dying? Makes perfect sense.

Goddammit, I might have to get a 3DS now.

While I have never believed in ghosts, psychics or supernatural stuff of any kind, reading and (mostly) understanding particle physics cemented that belief. When you know somewhat how the universe is put together, it becomes pretty apparent why you cannot read anyones thoughts, move things with your mind or keep on living in some spirit form after death. I'd also say that knowing about that stuff is far more magical than the belief in ghosts and paranormal entities. Of course, they might discover something that would make paranormal things more plausible, but that seems highly unlikely.
Sadly the book (De Hemmelige Partiklene) is only in Norwegian so I cannot tell everyone to read it, but it is truly excellent. It explains about the particles in a simple way without math. So you get simple knowledge about protons, electrons, higgs particles and anti particles. If you can read Norwegian go look for it!

Also, love all the chatter between Drew, Vinny and Rorie on these.

God, that intro... the annoying thing is that TV commercials about soccer here in Norway is on that level. Or was, I have luckily managed to dodge those when watching TV the past year. Soccer is so stupid, and this QL will probably be awesome.

A few things: Double-right clicking the ground will eventually dig one layer down. So when Jeff said he had to dig out layers from the edge of the cliff to get a chest... not needed. Still kind of a pain in the ass though.
Also there will be no store, as feedback showed them that everyone hated the idea. So the gems can be mined instead.
You can also build "Settlements", which will gather all the belief in a radius so that you don't have to click all the huts.

That should clear up some of the "this game sucks" issues I have seen people having with the game so far...

Actually been playing Metro 2033 recently for the first time. Read the book a few weeks back before playing the game, despite my sometimes "crippling" fear of moving forward in games like that. The tension is just too much for me at times. I started it out on Russian, to get the authentic feel, but I switched over to English after a few hours. Specifically when I got through the level called "War", when I found what looked like a stealthy shortcut to where I had gone guns blazing. Checked a walk-through and sure enough, a pair of guards talk about this shortcut near the start. But because they don't subtitle those things, I had no idea. Which is silly, seeing how my character should understand them just fine.
