Started this up a couple of days ago, continuing my second playthrough of the whole trilogy, Renegade Femshep.

Almost done recruiting "The Professor." So far I'm really enjoying it.

As I commented elsewhere, ME1 and ME2 have very different ways of determining your character's Paragon/Renegade rating at any given point in the story. In ME1, the rating is something you build up. In ME2, the rating is something you maintain.

The upside to ME2's approach is that you'll never be shut out of red/blue dialog options if you're unswervingly consistent in your approach. The downside is that roleplaying is effectively shut down - any variation in the script basically wrecks the whole thing and the game decides you are neither paragon or renegade, which is pretty annoying.

Fortunately, importing a character with Max paragon or renegade gives you some breathing room (basically, the game adds it to the numerator of the hidden equation, but not the denominator). You can also pad things with a glitch that's available in the first hour.

All that being said, I can't shake the feeling that, moving from ME1 to ME2, Bioware is increasingly equating "Renegade" with "Jerk," which is the least satisfying, least sophisticated, and least compelling way to go about it.

We'll see how it goes.

I've been unable to settle on a game to play. I finished watching a lets' play of Mass Effect, which was great, and nice change of pace for me (as I don't watch TV otherwise). Started on a let's play of the sequel (not by John though!).

I played a few hours of LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 (Console/PC) (Wii) and it was pretty fun. I liked the different environments, but some of the chores are chores. I really wanted to play LEGO City: Undercover but my daughter has started that and she hates it when other people play the game she is playing (she feels it becomes competitive). So I'll leave it for now.

I have copies of Mass Effect 3: Special Edition, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and now Darksiders II ($15 from EB!) for WiiU, but I am kinda saving them for later, if you know what I mean. They are some of the first non-Nintendo AAA games I have ever owned. I think I'll like them. I've started them up, to see what they look like, you know, as you do.

My play through of Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World seems to have stalled.

I played a few hours of Dawn of Discovery last weekend too, but it feels a bit more like work than a game. I had the same feeling about Pikmin 2, so maybe RTS isn't my thing.

So glad they mostly fixed this game.
Tonight the servers were in a cruel mood.
Emptying clips into enemies and having them survive is kinda disappointing.
But besides that, some good gaming.

I am still hoping for 15 wins in a row, so my stats bar will be blue all the way across. The closest my teams have gotten is 11. Tonight we had a 10 game winning streak going, but it came to a close.
Someday...

Decided to celebrate making big progress on my current freelance project by playing this game... but it keeps crashing on me, and when it crashes it also corrupts the autosave. This has happened a few times now, with the result that if I don't save every 15 minutes, I lose a lot of progress randomly when I enter a door. Which is super frustrating. It's still a really cool game, and I'm quite enjoying the wealth of alliance options... so many people to save, or betray, or work for, or double-cross... it's a very cool game. I'd probably enjoy it a lot more if it didn't involve saving every 15 minutes and then stopping when it crashes and losing 30 minutes of progress next time I start (because naturally, I always forget to save for a while before it crashes).

Also, more Neverwinter with Jythier. Almost lv50. This may be the first MMO where I ever actually reach Lv60. I'm hoping we keep playing. Even if the characters say contradictory things.

Lots of retro board gaming this week. I waited 27 years to finally get a copy of this classic. My best friend had the board game version growing up, but GW games always had such a high price tag that I never got my own copy. I grabbed this for $0.53 off Steam with some quick trading card sales. I'm hooked.

This is about as simplistic as games come; almost completely random; chock full of cheap deaths; but it recreates the solitaire type game perfectly. I'm sure I'll get bored with it, but it's cool seeing how the different equipment combinations effects how you play the game. I'm tempted to get another copy for my phone so I can play on the go.

Path of Exile - Played a lot of this with Alex. My character is halfway to level 83 and can now do 10,000 dps using arc.

Payday: Heist - Played with Amy and Matt. Kill, die, restart level, repeat. It's a winning combination.

Played another game with Amy, Andy, and Dave. Same combination as before and just as fun!

Beat 140 last week. A great rhythm jump and run with a unique abstract style (and very cool music).

I had 140 a long time in my library and never took a second look at it. While on vacation I installed some small games on my (rather mid to low-end) laptop. 140 was the perfect match for some nice action. It took me only about 90 minutes or so to complete the game but I had a blast - very recommended (I liked it better than Thomas was alone which is similar).

I got the name in the database switched over, so that's nice.

I've started down the path of casting the tournament.





I like the second video better for numerous reasons. Apparently I published the video in 640x480 instead of native - fixed that for the second video. Also, I went in with the comedy on the second video.

Maybe you want to take a look, see what Frozen Cortex is about.

Had a chance after doing the Round 1 cast to boot up this gem and play it some more, and now I'm getting into it. But it feels JUST LIKE TROPICO 3!

There are differences, enough to annoy me actually. But that also just makes it tougher. I need a Minister of the Interior in order to do a lot of the things I use to just do. That's fun. I've started working on training high-school grads. I have a lumber mill and I'm working on a furniture factory. That should secure most of my financial future. After that I'll grab a college and maybe even get some power installed.

I like that there's a expensive, less powerful, greener power option now in wind turbines. If you're not going in with the big industries you can probably get away with several of those instead of a big power plant. But again, all this is in Tropico 3. I'm not sure the upgrade was really worth anything, but having new music and some new stuff is nice.

I'm planning to grab the expansions when I'm flush and they're on sale. I'm guessing that will make a huge difference.

Now, the game I'm currently playing I have on a very hard difficulty level but so far I haven't found there to be much difference compared to a normal game. They people still all vote for me. I have 50% happiness. The environment is getting wrecked due to tenements and industry. Apparently my avatar can level up but I don't know how to do that.

So, yeah, Tropico 4 so far is just 'Tropico again, but now with ads and integration with social networking sites'

Wow. Did not see that twist coming.

Also I'm a little non-plussed with some of the story.

But, I'm excited to save the universe now. First, side-questing!

There's some 'meh' to the sidequesting - it really doesn't give you anything to sidequest. The equipment is kinda boring in this game. You have 5 of everything and then you have slowly increasing numbers to go with the 5 of everything, so everything gets better but in the same paths, so you always kind of know what you're getting. But I love the combat so at least there's that.

Anyway, I keep hitting the 150 item limit and I can't find a way to offload stuff quickly and efficiently so I just Omni-gel everything below a certain number and then I can get more stuff.

I kept trying to play other games all weekend, but I bounced back to this one every time. Played two or three games, I think.

On Friday I promised myself I'd play a board wargame during the weekend. But I was only able to put away Field Commander: Rommel (I had had the North African scenario set up for a month or two and never played it) and browse through the components of Lock 'n Load: Forgotten Heroes – Vietnam. Then I went back to video games.

After a Civ V game, I told myself I ought to get into my new game, Civil War II. I read a section or two of the manual, then put it away.

After another Civ V game, I told myself Master of Magic is a great game that I ought to be playing if I want a 4X game. So I started a game of MOM and played until Tauron captured one of my cities. Maybe I'll go back and kick his butt for that, but at the time I got discouraged and quit. (I enjoyed it pretty well while it lasted, though--but it was tedious taking over towns with my Confusion spell. Too much running around while waiting for the spell to "take.")

Then, yesterday afternoon, I figured I'd just go back to Civ V. I had won two games in a row with Arabia as my randomly selected civilization. This time it turned out to be Germany--with an archipelago world for a change, instead of continents or pangaea.

However, I didn't have an island to myself. At the other end of the big island were the Aztecs. I cut them off from expanding up toward me, but soon they were sailing. The Arab capital was also right across a narrow strait on the next island. Before I managed to expand far, both those powers attacked me. But I fended off all their incursions, made peace with the Aztecs, shut down the computer, and went to bed.

I've upped my game to King level. Won the last one that way, but so far I'm behind a couple other powers in this game. We'll see how it goes.

Civ V is a pleasant enough game to play most of the time. My only problem with it is actually a hardware problem: with the CPU on my netbook computer, I have to sit through the Please Wait screen for a good while before my turn comes around again.

Played a bunch of this. Got a new record on the easiest level (127 seconds), which is neat because after finishing both this and the hyper level I get a bonus shape as my shape, even though it still says hexagon (I suspect it's a 12 sided object but it rotates too fast to tell).

I am slowly creeping forward on hyper Hexagonest but I almost ALWAYS crash the second after it alerts me of my new record. I think it's just because I'm hyper aware of it coming and then a new tension appears when that happens. I am so bad at being relaxed in these games. Ah well. I'll get there no doubt.

I've been borrowing this from Amy's steam account. It's the only game in the main series that I've yet to play. I'm having fun with it so far, though I have to say that I really prefer controller over mouse / keyboard for this game. Unfortunately, the Steam version of the game doesn't offer controller support. None the less, the updated graphics look great, and it still has that light hearted / fun vibe that Fable always seems to have.

I've also been playing quite a bit of Out There on my Android phone, and that continues to provide a great rouge-like / resource management sci-fi experience.

You can read more of my thoughts on this game on the "VGs beaten in 2014" geeklist.

I'm glad it's through. Is was always hoping it would redeem itself but it didn't. There was some fun to be had but not enough to compensate for all the annoyances.

Played with Amy and Rudy. Amy and I completed Panic Room earlier in the week, and the three of us went back through it later.

From gallery of vyran

We then attempted the Bridge heist after it. We got overwhelmed at the choke point of the tower entrance more often than not.

Amy has taken to referring to "playing Payday: The Heist" as "getting paid."

Up to the the 140s in levels. Two bosses down and all runes found. I've been venturing into the Maya a lot more since then, but haven't gotten to the point where I can take on the third boss.

After watching Justice League and related shows again lately, and reading more superhero comics, I decided to get more super-speed power-jumping and alien annihilation going in SR4. I still haven't unlocked a fourth super power, but just flying around the city is still pretty entertaining.

FTL as always. Had a decent run through with Stealth A where I got the Zoltan super shield quest early in the piece. I ended up losing two sets of boarders during the boss fight (from not beaming them back before unexpectedly doing a stack of damage to the rebel flagship) which left me with only one crew member to take on the mind control boss. It did not end well.

Didn't play much for videogames the past 5 or 6 days as my mum was in town, and we were out and about and visiting for the most part. I'd play a level or two first thing in the morning until everyone was awake.
I've finished the first playthrough of each level and finished the Republic Assault missions. There is a ton of game on this disc...still have all of the Separatist Assaults to do, and all of the Bounty Hunter missions...lots to do.

Played a tiny little bit of Diablo 3.

Purchased the Guardians of the Galaxy table for Zen Pinball 2 and messed around with that for a while. I haven't figured that table out quite yet...same with the Deadpool table and a handful of Star Wars tables. Need to spend some quality time with pinball, I guess.

Well, since I watched Guardians of the Galaxy on Saturday, I couldn't resist picking up Star Lord with Gamora as a sidekick for MH. I made it to about level 25 by Monday night.

I'm still having issues with Steam for my Company of Heroes 2 install, after about a dozen emails back and forth to tech support, multiple re-installs or Steam and the game itself, it still wants to re-install every time I load up Steam new. All my other games on Steam work fine. soblue

Started playing Rogue Legacy, which I picked up a month ago on Steam's summer sale. It's a good game. Reminds me a lot of The Adventure of Link, and not just because of the downward thrust - although that helps. More the jumping and the slashing and the descent into some dungeon until you invariably die, and then try it again. Also, it's got a just-one-more-game thing going on, because after doing all that struggling to get cash, I want to see the exciting ways to spend it - but that requires starting a new descendent, and that just turns into another run to get cash... and the cycle continues.

I also played and, just last night, finished up Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World. There were some sidequests and so forth that I ended up dropping, but I was kind of keen to finish it up. I would've had to engage in a lot of grinding to do all the cool stuff I'd initially planned (like get all of my dream team of monsters to workable levels). All told - good game, and I'm glad I played it.

cool I've reached the "Point of No Return" mission-wise in Blood Dragon, so spent the week cleaning up the rest of the side missions and hunting down 25 Blood Dragons so I can get all the Ubiplay achievements (and thus more spendable "Ubipoints"). All the garrisons are liberated, I'v maxed out levels--picked up all the collectibles except the TVs (they only serve to upgrade the shotgun, which I never use). I'll finish and add to Beaten list shortly.
A bit of maintenance in ANNO 2070, and a couple of skirmishes in Company of Heroes 2. cool

So not much videogames in the last two weeks. My wife was at home so we spend most evenings relaxing talking, watching a movie, ... But since she's working again and having to work early shifts she's tired and loves to watch some of her series. So for me it's time to game.

So restarted Euro Truck Simulator. Still trucking away with 3 trucks from my Brussels garage. Looking to expand and buy a new garage in a capital somewhere in Europe. Undecided where. Paying of my 400.000 loan and working for capital to upgrade my Volvo truck in a bigger one. Well I just want to buy a bigger one for myself. Then hire a new driver to put in my new garage and in my old truck. But still have to find about 160.000 for that so that will be some driving to do.
