Even after having some of the big turns spoiled during the GOTY podcasts (my choice to listen) this game is still hella affecting. I gnawed through episode 2 and 3 yesterday which was highly engrossing. My poor sweet Carely. Episode 2 has had the best arc so far, but episode 3 had more "oh shit" type moments. My money would be with episode 2 as being the best, but that could change once I play 4 and 5. Upset that I missed this last year, but better late than never I suppose.
I am very late to this party, but Portal 2 is awesome. Stephen Merchant does an amazing job and the dialogue is laugh out loud funny. Very rarely am I actually laughing with a game. I usually laugh, in a lovingly way of course, in spite of the game, but Portal 2 is legitimately funny. Just got an iphone last Monday...nice shiny 4S...of course Jetpack Joyride is my jam, but I just finished downloading Superbrothers and am thinking it will steal a good chunk of my mobile game time for the near future.
Hey all, hope anyone that reads this is having a great summer thus far. Just bought Portal 2 yesterday...about 50 minutes before the sale ended. I will pay 7 bucks for Portal 2 any day. I have also been dabbling in Microsoft Flight because why the hell not. My laptop has some trouble running the game, but once I lower the settings it runs ok. AIRMECH. I have been playing a whole bunch of that game. Really fun stuff, although some matches can take a really long time to complete. FTP browser games are catching my interest as of late and I plan to explore that space a bit more as the summer progresses.
Praise be to Jesus for I am cured!!!! Around May 2010, I finally ended up squeezing the last bits of entertainment from Fallout 3 and the (good) DLC . Needless to say that after well over 220 hours I was pretty sick of the "make your own adventure concept". For the rest of that summer I reverted to playing the most linear, un-open world games I could find (thank you for easing my transition SSF4). I have to admit that I was a tad weary as I began playing Skyrim, wondering if I could feel excited about the prospects of sinking hundreds of hours into a single game. I am happy to report that Skyrim has re-captured my love for non-linear worlds. This game is filled with some amazing moments, but the best bits happen when traversing the area between point A and B. I was fearful that since I was so used to the conventions of a Bethesda RPG I would simply fast travel everywhere, but the vibrancy and variety of Skyrim allowed me to push the idea of fast travel to the wayside. I am 26 hours in thus far and I feel like the game is really hitting it's stride for me. I think we may have a top candidate for 2012's 2011 GOTY.
Almost done...just a couple more weeks...graduate school has been fun so far. Granted it is lots of work, but I work with cool, interesting people so that keeps things fresh. Haven't really been playing any video games lately aside from Terraria, TF2 and Forza 3. I almost finished Stacking which I have very much enjoyed. Was thinking about a top 10 list and realized I might not have played 10 games that came out this year!! I have 4 games I can think of that I could put on my list so starting next week I am going to try to consume the games of 2011 any way I can...be it buying or borrowing. Anywho, happy thanksgiving to my American duders and have batman
