Finished Darksiders II. Despite enjoying playing it immensely, the only way I got to the point of completing it is setting myself a rule that I couldn't start any new games on my desktop PC until this was finished. My frustration with a story that never went anywhere in a 30+ hour game seriously tempered my engagement.

I've also just started playing Rogue Legacy, so I should post my impressions on Andy's New to You geeklist shortly.

Other than that, I have also been participating in a Hearthstone tournament organised by a work colleague of my wife. The game I played last night is going to stick with me for a very long time. It very nearly came down to being decked, even though I was playing an extremely high tempo Warlock deck that should have either won or lost well before turn 10.

I am getting re-addicted to Diablo II Lord of Destruction! Or maybe it is the same addiction that I've had since Diablo II first came out for the Mac in 2000.

I have purposely not upgraded my OS on my iMac past OS X 10.6.8 because this game will not run on OS X without the Rosetta simulator that was discontinued after that. (Actually, it will also run on my old G4).

Today, I started a new character (I have hundreds because I like trying out different skill combinations): a Necromancer named Umbre. He's up to level 11 right now. I'm planning to put points in Bone Armor (and many in Bone Wall to strengthen the Bone Armor), the Golems and Golem Mastery and Summon Resist (probably concentrate on Iron Golem, but haven't decided yet), Bone Spear/Bone Spirit, and Amplify Damage and Dim Vision (and maybe Confuse and Attract).

More Neverwinter with Jythier. We hit lv30, which is the breakpoint for some cool new powers, so now my freezy wizard has become a zappy wizard (that's the technical thaumateurgic jargon). And I can send one extra minion out crafting for me. Hooray!

Also spent more time willing the Hearthstone single player campaign to release. Soon. Meanwhilst, played some SolForge against an old college friend who demolished me. Hoping to get Wytefang into the game and building up his collection so he can work towards doing the same. ;P

And briefly, Monaco with RenWmn and Kempeth, who I thank for their forbearance of my craptastic connection.

I've decided more Fallout:NewVegas will be my reward if I can get these stupid chapter edits done. So far, not.

Free game that I saw mentioned as Diablo-like, but with Super Heroes, so I thought I would give it a shot. Not too bad so far (I'm up to level 6 with Captain America), and it seems like a good one to play when the kids are watching.

Got a new speedrun personal best of 54.7 seconds despite a huge mistake in the middle. I'm sure I can shave off another ~3 seconds or so, but I need almost 5 to reclaim the record...

We played "The Parish" campaign and all died about 4 times on the final run across the bridge. Sadly I had to go to bed, so I don't know if the others ever made it across!!

Completed Blood Dragon on Friday. And it was awesome! I don't remember when I last played a game that was so ridiculous, hilarious and satisfying! I'm impressed how the game managed to entertain throughout even though it very quickly becomes a curb stomp battle. It is so filled with cheesy one liners yet short enough that they never wear thin.

And the ending. Oh my god the ending... It has to be seen to be believed!

Final verdict:
Spoiler (click to reveal)
Puntastic!

Played with Rudy, Amy, Andy, Alex and Nick.

I'm starting to get the hang of some of the more unusual dinosaurs. It seems like everyone else is starting to find their niche characters, so there's less fumbling around than there was last weekend (other than when the game automatically changes our classes for some reason).

Played with Andy, Amy and Rudy. For the first time since we discovered them, we actually cut back on the number of mods installed, though that was just to keep from having to reset them every time the game started. There's still a few dozen running during play. We had some trouble with the bridge level in the Parish campaign, but eventually got through it.

Amy made a new goal: for all of us to actually survive the end of a campaign, not just one person. We'll see how that goes.

I played around with the characters I wasn't able to play during the free weekend last year and finished their story modes. I think I may actually go through the training and then test my luck in online matches, though if there's no ranking system to show that I'm on the low end of the ladder I'll probably just get my ass kicked over and over again.

So I turned up the graphics and it's more pretty - the rain looks fantastic... but really, when you're playing, there isn't much call for graphics. Oh well. I mostly didn't notice the upgrade, and watching the replay didn't help.

Not disappointed but not overly enthusiastic about it either.

Played with Cabal on a map, and ended up holding my baby while playing which really brings down my game. Against 2 normals, though, it was enough, although Cabal carried the match. Thanks bud.

Far Cry 3 - Played coop with Kevin. I... I don't get it. I consider myself to be a competent gamer for the most part. But this game, which is an FPS and I one I am good at, Kevin absolutely destroys me in each and every time we play. He's so consistent. It's not a competition, we are on the same team. He just obliterates the enemy faster and more efficient than I can. Even the in between level games he crushes me. I've never seen him go Rambo this hard in any other game I've played with him. I told him he is like the Warner Brothers frog that only seems to sing and dance when I am around. I'm convinced he is doing this on purpose. His excuse, "The enemy seems to fall into my bullets." Jerk.

Dino D-Day - Played this with fellow VGGers. This scratches the TF2 itch. "I'm gonna bite your toes!" I will say that this game takes a while to find the right combination of character and play style that is effective, but once you do it is a lot of fun.

Left 4 Dead - Another game with VGGers. It's always fun killing zombies and Andy.

I'm at level 14 (out of 20, I believe). I've put a stop to another head demon and will soon take on another. Today I got two new weapons - the circular "Aquila" blades and the shotgun.

There seems to be a little foreshadowing of what will happen during the next boss battle, so I'm pretty sure it will be a crazy fight.

I've just finished the first case. I love the whole series! I don't own Nintendo 3DS, but the next games come only on this platform, so it might be a good reason to get it in the future.

So far, I'm really enjoying it and I must say that I missed Miles Edgeworth and detective Gumshoe

ninja I didn't post last week, 'cause I was unplugged while visiting Norway (more on this in a later post). Still tremendously jetlagged which hasn't stopped me from playing as I try to readjust to not having eighteen hours of daylight. Mostly it's been Tomb Raider, a single CoH game with Jay, and some skirmishing in AoE 2 HD, this time as another old fave, the Saracens. ninja

I played this a couple of hours a day during the week and finished it this morning. Not bad, but pretty rough around the edges. I would advise most people to play the sequel and only check this out if you love the more unique aspects of the game (which aren't as good in the first one, but where else are you doing to find them).

Also played just a bit of The Guided Fate Paradox, and got seriously burned.

About 45 minutes into the second major dungeon, I stepped out of a transition pathway (where your visibility shrinks to almost zero) and a seemingly normal enemy ambushed me / wiped me out. It didn't seem like there was much I could do once I stepped into the room. I suppose I could have used an expensive warp-exit item - at least I would have retained loot and stat gains. If you die, you keep stat gains, but it wipes your entire inventory and half your gold.

This prompted me to scan the message boards at gamefaqs, and apparently a lot of players use a "trick" where you can store "temporary," in-dungeon saves to a flash drive instead of the PS3 hard drive. These saves are only meant to give you way to stop playing every 10 minutes or so (otherwise it would be every hour or more), but if you die the game gets rid of them. Apparently, using a flash drive lets you save "for real" every time you progress to a new floor of a dungeon.

Given how easy it is to lose everything, I may try this out. Going to let it sit for a few days, though.

I'm actually considering abandoning Dragon Age: Origins. There's very, very little that I admire about it, and the console in-battle interface is atrocious.

Continuing the games I was playing before. First off with Euro Truck Simulator. I bought my own truck in the meantime and learning to be a independent driver.

Continuing this game as well. At the moment in the temple of rain trying to perform a tricky jump and not being able to pull it off. Frustrating.
