It warms my heart to see so many finally experience the glorious anime bullshit that is Metal Gear.

The side effect of 2014 being a somewhat sparse year for games is that I found myself exploring older titles to a greater degree than I have in the past. I started the year off by beating Persona 3 for the first time, a game that I had started, and stopped, playing multiple times since 2009 and moved on soon after that to Persona 2: Innocent Sin, which is an outstanding game in its own right that only suffers a little bit due to its age. Other games that I played extensively for the first time in 2014 included Quake, Quake 2, Doom, DmC: Devil May Cry, Panzer Dragoon Orta, Manx TT Superbike and Bastion. So my question is this: what older games did you discover, play, or finish for the first time in 2014?

Actually, I think Elite Dangerous in particular works extremely well with a controller. The UI effectively eliminates the need for memorizing large swaths of buttons. I played that way for some time while on vacation and found it suprisingly viable.

That said, I have a Saitek X-52 Pro and its a great joystick, albeit a little loose without some light modification.

I guess I'm happy that I'm not the only person who has thought of this. Not sure if I should feel vindicated because someone thought it was a good enough idea to actually put into action, or horrified for the very same reason.

Typically Single Malt Scotch Whisky, although a really nice Burbon is something to behold. Hard cider or dark craft beer for social gatherings.

Extra Life and Dragon Age have filled my days in recent weeks. I just beat Dragon Age, though, so I guess it's Far Cry 4 and Extra Life for the foreseeable future.

Well, I'm glad that they are taking their time to polish the game up, even if it does mess with my time table for reading through all the books and replaying the first 2 games leading up to the release of 3. I guess I'll just have to space things out a bit more.

Damn, this throws my schedule off a bit. I'm reading through the books now and planned to play through Witcher 1 & 2 again leading into 3. Now I've got a few extra months of breathing room to space things out I guess. In all seriousness I would rather they take the time they need than released a messed up game. Also, that's my birthday! Hell of a present.

I was on the fence with this game and whether to buy it now or wait for a better price, but this news has really pushed me over the edge. It baffled me that after such a positive showing at E3 they decided not to officially support the rift.
