Continuing my play through of Lego Batman 2, which is definitely growing on me despite still having some annoying perspective-induced platforming issues.

Played for another couple of hours tonight.. including completing the incredibly long Chemical Crisis level.

So ... I want to play this game (Medal of Honor 2010 Tier 1 Edition) but it won't start, I get Error 80010514 (which apparently is a bad blue ray, but other disks work fine).

I gave checked for system and game updates (there was one that wasn't automatically installed), Restored the File System, and Rebuilt the Database, cleaned the disk, used a lens-cleaner disk. No joy.
Any ideas?

I have a 320 Gb PS3 Slim.

The disk also comes with Medal of Honor Frontline as Bonus content. This installed, but also won't play (Error 800190001, Bluetooth problem apparently).

After an exhaustive treasure hunt (read: using walkthrough), I am now the proud owner of a Deadpool team-up in a Pirate costume. Can't get enough Deadpool! Have you all seen Deadpool yet? It is over the top in every way, and delightful if you aren't offended by over-the-top-ness.

Tried this out while it was free - a solid, incremental improvement on core SimCity-style design.

I learned that it is possible to have Residential happiness at 0% (the cause of which was dubbed 'The Poopening' by my viewers). I'd like to make a video out of this, uh, incident but it'll require editing ~35 minutes down to ~3 minutes to nicely skip the in-between.

I also witnessed this happen which was amazing.

Two more failed attempts at the stupid big tank chapter. It's possible I may just end up abandoning this game, because this level has ceased to be fun. A shame, as I loved it up until this level. Maybe I'll come back to it next month. Between this and Divinity:OS having bugs, it's looking grim for the RPGs on my 2016 hardcore challenge list.

Bought this game during GOG's big sale last year and didn't get to it until now. Not perfect but it is the most Rogue like rpg fun I've had. So far, I've been unsuccessful in protecting my villages. In fact,I've gone through 4 or 5 villages- all overrun. Despite my failure to secure the safety of these towns, I'm having a blast just cutting through hordes of monsters and discovering new items and equipments.

The other game I'm enjoying is Space Rangers HD. Just finished the basic training- the last one being a ground battle. looking forward to the time when I regain my armada.

Thought I'd start a new Telltale game after being frustrated with my other games (and some life stress). So, I got 10 minutes into this one and it crashed. Graaargh. So far it's probably my least favorite Telltale game I've played, the theme is not doing it for me.

I finished up Assassin's Creed: Unity. Real glad to be done with that control mess.

From there I jumped back into Just Cause 3.
Previously, I just touched on the first mission. Man oh man, tonight I was wrecking serious havoc.

I stole a military chopper and leveled half a military base, before they shot me down. Then I parachuted and grapneled my way around the base hooking fuel tanks together and winching them apart until they blew up.

Ripping helicopters out of the sky and blowing everything to hell is quite enjoyable. Once I got my A-Team fix, I moved on to--

Unmechanical

It's a simple little puzzler. The little helicopter dude makes cute sounds, when he bangs into stuff.

I got to some giant heart underground with some mech-spiders attached to it. From there I am trying to open passages. Besides opening passages I have no idea what is going on, but it's fun enough.

The music is way cool.

Finished this game now. A ok game until the last boss fight. The boss fight was meh. But I liked the setting of the game. And it has some cool ideas, eg the combo system. Like to see more of the same in other games.

Video Game: Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Siege
Still loving this game. Just this past week I finally 3-starred every single Situation and that was with at least 50% of them being set to HARD difficulty level. I'm not normally one to do that type of thing so I'm proud of myself, for one thing, and I also think it reveals just how darn good this game is, that I'd actually want to do so.

I'd almost go so far as to say that this is a shooter for non-shooter fans, in some ways. It almost present a puzzle-like challenge to the single-player components.

Superb gaming experience and I'm excited to notice that I've been doing MUCH better in multiplayer matches of late, too!

Beat the game yesterday, now I'm going back to all the locations to find the GPS Caches I'm still missing, and to complete the challenges. The challenges are in some parts hard to find, so let's see if I will actually get them all.

I have really been enjoying playing this game, despite the QTE I really didn't care for at all.

Actually playing PLANTS VS. ZOMBIES GARDEN WARFARE 2 but annoyingly there isn't an entry for it and the process for making one is such a pain in the ass, that I can't be bothered to make one myself.

Hopefully some patient (very patient) and kindly soul will get one up asap, as the game launches later today (Tuesday, March 23rd).

I have signed up for the Origin Access program so I got to play this game for 10 hours before launch, which was awesome.

Going to be a LOT of fun for both adults and younger gamers alike.

Have had some fun playing with VGGers and in the various leagues here at VGG so far.

What a cool game. Wish there were a LOT more unlockable things...more car types, and more arenas to play in. Sigh.

I've been playing GoH for the past few weeks - Level 45 now, and slowly losing interest, although I would still say it's a fun game. But to make noticable progress now I might have to put in more "work", play it more seriously instead of casually dabbling away.

I have seven characters on the light side, five on the dark side - no optimized team, obviously. I'd actually like to get Rey and Luminara in my team. But farming shards (splinters? Whatever they're called in the English version) for them takes a lot of time...

Just started playing this. So far, it looks cool. The dual story lines seem interesting, but I'll be curious how they are woven together.

I'm also playing Bloodborne, but a little safety and sugary cereal seemed like a good alternative to blood and disease.

Back to basics for me so far this week. I just wasn't up to playing any of my newer games last night, so I opted for good old MoO.

Didn't work out so well for me, though. Or it did but it didn't. I enjoyed playing, as I always do, but the tide turned against me.

Playing as the Meklars, I colonized a nearby terran planet right away, and I expanded reasonably well. But before long the Klackons were my neighbors, and they're known for expanding very quickly indeed (they're probably prototypes of the Zerg). I restrained myself when they forcibly took over one of my colonies, but war became inevitable, and it came before I could get ready for it.

The other race in this small-map game, the Bulrathis, were too distant for me to communicate with. And at first they were allied with the Klackons anyway. So I was on my own. I could only hope to tough it out long enough to build up production.

I did manage to build fleets that could defeat the Klackons most of the time. But they kept coming, wave after wave, attacking various planets and sometimes capturing a weakly defended one. I'd get it back, but production there was ruined and would have to be rebuilt. Then, surprising me with a huge bomber fleet, they even took my home planet, Meklon. And I had to get that back and start over.

I finally contacted the Bulrathis and even forged an alliance with them, but it was too late: within a few turns, the Klackons had eradicated the entire Bulrathi race.

I saved the game, and I'll finish it tonight. But it's not looking good. I noticed the Klackons now have the neutronium bomb (the most powerful in the game). If I can steal that technology and buy time to build a fleet of neutronium bombers, there's an outside chance I might start knocking out Klackon colonies and turn the tide. There's probably a better chance that the Klackons will close in for the kill and I'll join the Bulrathis in oblivion.

My time here may be coming to an end, almost have my 2016 vgg poe goals met. I'm getting tired of this stuff.

Fire_Priest: 86
MjolValkyrie: 84

I have 19 challenges complete. Challenge 20 can be done when I find 1 last rogue exile (vanth agile) and throw a talisman at him/her. Challenge 21 will probably be Avatar of Thunder that I buy for 25 chaos from someone.
21 challenges complete. woo.

The only other goal I want to hit is level 90, but that won't happen before league end, so I'll wrap it up with the Ascendancy expansion.

Soon, I will shift to one of the following:
Death Trap
Machinarium
DOOM (2016)
Total War: Warhammer
Endless Space
Portal
Geneforge 1

I still play DOTA2 as a casual thing, and my solforge account is accruing silver, packs and tix.

I am continuing on my CIVBE:RT game from Sunday. Hutama, my loose ally, has taken over two of his neighbours and has been becoming a threat to me. All alliances are temporary as in the end there can only be one! So, I have ramped up my military production and have prepared for an attack as Hutuma is about the same military tech level as me but my production swallows him whole, so as long as I can withstand any initial attacks I will win in the long run with more reinforcements coming out.

Back to playing Diablo this week, as I've hit a brick wall on Icewind Dale Enhanced Edition. I'm currently doing torment VIII rifts and greater rifts, but still seem unable to get the belt I'm after, or better versions of the items I'm wearing. At least my legendary gems are all level 25 or better, so that's an improvement.

Although I have lots of games I have not yet played, for some reason I am running through this one for the second time. I first played it years ago on PS2, and this time I am playing the PS3 version.

And just like the first time around, it's a lot of fun as long as I skip all of the cutscenes.

Completed the remainder of the loyalty missions, and lost the respect of Miranda when forced to choose... Reactivated Legion when that was available... Managed to complete the final mission and not lose any of the crew... Romanced Thane Krios in the game...

Finished the game today with 35.75 hours on the clock... Need to get the third game of the series out later in the week...

He's looking real sharp in his 1940's fedora. He's got nerves of steel, an iron will, and several other metal-themed attributes. His fur is water tight and he's always up for a fight.

He's a semi-aquatic egg-laying mammal of action. He's a furry little flat-foot who'll never flinch from a fray. He's got more than just mad skills, he's got a beaver tail and a bill.

So I have 3 agents outside my city, and I can hire just a single Metsuke, who has a 30% chance of capturing a single agent, but only if he lives to the second turn he's alive, which he doesn't. Meanwhile, the ninja and the missionaries keep me from moving at all.

The battles are fun but the strategic portion is lame. My agent remover should have some serious firepower, or the other agents should not be able to remove him so easily.

This remains my new obsession.

Level: 82
Vitality: 24
Attunement: 12
Endurance: 35
Strength: 30
Dexterity: 22
Resistance: 10
Intelligence: 12
Faith: 18

Typical gear: Black Knight Sword +5/Halberd +10/Queelag's Fury Sword +2/Lightning Uchigatana +2, Grass Crest Shield +5, Talisman, Gargoyle Helm +5, Black Iron Armor +3, Black Iron Gauntlets +3, Black Iron Leggings +3, Covetous Gold Serpent Ring, Havel's Ring

Spoiler (click to reveal)
Bosses defeated: Havel, Ceaseless Discharge, Undead Dragon, Smeough and Orinstein, and Lautrec

I've managed to work my way through dying to Seath, and then fighting my way through the prison and archives. I saved the girl in the orange crystal golem, and have aided her father several times. I also killed the Ceasless Mass and Lautrec. I resurrected the Fire Keeper at the Shrine, and managed to get my Estus flask up to +3 after fighting my way out of the Archives. I found myself a bit stymeed at certain points, and curious about what to do with some of the boss souls I acquired, so I've done a lot of grinding, and I am probably overleveled for almost everything. Which shows in that I have had no luck getting summoned by other people and can seldom find other PC's to summon. I also really need to work on my PVP, I lose more often than I win, but at least I don't lose all the time, and usually manage to hurt the other guy pretty badly before I go down. I also have way more advanced gear than I should, including a +15 pyromancy flame that I mainly use to grind in the depths for large titanite and humanity. I've also used my bow to grind for souls in Annor Londo. Both are probably considered 'cheesing' but I'm in a 'whatever works' mentality when it comes to this game, including doing things like using humanity to heal in order to solo the Ceasless Discharge (which still took careful timing). At a certain point I'll have to drop that habit and get back to the actual game! Once I've got enough Intelligence for the light spell, that is....

I've been playing this a bit and I'm really enjoying it. I discovered after playing a bit with my Dwarven fighter that his stats weren't very good. I'd given him great resolve (to increase his deflection) and great might (to increase his damage done), but I hadn't bumped perception for accuracy, and thus he didn't hit all that often. So I've gone back to the drawing board and restarted with a more well-rounded druid, and things are going swimmingly. Great game.
