    I've gone back to playing Just Cause 2 (hijacking helicopters) and Project Diva f (improving my score on easy/normal songs and working my way through hard songs) while trying to decide what in my to-do pile to tackle next.

    I thought I'd finish off the shorter games first but I'm not sure that any of them are short! Almost all RPGs and open world games.

    Borderlands 2, Trials Evo, Pinball FX2. Mrs Hermit plays Minecraft and Bejewelled 3. It's a pain in the arse trying to get her off the Xbox these days. To all you people out there who, like me, wished your other half would spend time playing games with you. Stop wishing. Right now. It's horrible. Also don't get Netflix on your Xbox either. Unless you like having conversations that start with 'Why should I have to sit here watching you play games when we could be watching a film.'. Seriously, between Minecraft and Bejewelled getting 9 hours each last week and about the same on Netflix, I was lucky to have scraped through with 14 hours of Borderlands and 6 of Pinball.

    @robthehermit Sounds like you need a handheld!

    I've een playing Counter Strike and La Mulana recently. Can't decide if I like the latter. It's an odd one. It's a very 'open' game and you're thrown into the deep end straight away. You're entirely on your own with this one.

    It sounds great, but the execution doesn't compare to the likes of Super Metroid. With that game, whilst it's not as open as La Mulana, it teaches you how to play the game. How to think. And motivates you. It makes you want to explore every nook and cranny. It makes you want to find those extra health tanks and upgrades. It's easier to remember those areas you've yet to explore, or those rooms that were previously inaccessible. That's what makes Super Metroid so rewarding to play.

    There's absolutely none of that to be found here. You pretty much have access to the whole game from the word go. Or at least it feels that way. You're given one important piece of advice, which is that you'll need to collect and use weights to activate switches, and then you're pretty much on your own. For a while, it's quite enjoyable exploring, finding clues and solving puzzles, but you don't really feel as if you're making any substantial progress. You receive emails from time to time, which i've been using to track my progress, but they seeming come through in the most random order (They're all numbered).

    My biggest problem is that I feel i'm exploring too far into the underground. It just keeps on going. I do enjoy solving the puzzles, but perhaps I just don't have the patience to cover such a big area in one go. I'd like the idea that other areas are locked off until you solve the area your in.

    Sounds like you need a second console/screen.

    A handheld is an excellent idea if you like JRPGs. I bought a psp and the number of quality games available is ridiculous.

    Currently utterly addicted to trials evolution. Think I will try and take a break from it and play a few new games. Only have walking dead and the maw to play on the Xbox but grandia and valkyria chronicles 2 to complete on the psp and final fantasy tactics and 7 to begin. I'm also looking at buying a gaming pc...

    Started Assassin's Creed: Revalations, and it's a bit rubbish so far. Will give it a chance to get going though.

    I'll never get my Orc looking the same again.

    Game of Thrones RPG

    It is really quite good. And decent length. About 20 hrs in and only about 70% through.

    Quite a bargain in the Steam sale. Has the voice actors from the HBO series, a story by Martin and a plot that ties in nicely with the lore.

    Think I am enjoying this more than Dragon Age 2 and is possibly as much fun as I had with the Witcher 2

    If you're into the books and the series I do encorage you to spend your gold on this

    Is there much platforming/tombs?
    having recently visited some nice historic churches, i was reminded of ass creed brotherhood and wouldn't mind some more exploration like that.

    XCom, Borderlands 2, Dishonored and NiGHTs. All utterly fabulous. Typing with pad on xbox is a bit tough.

    Gave Rocksmith the heave-ho and picked up LA Noire and Lollipop Chainsaw in its place. Both are good (and very different games to each other) so far!

    I'm dabbling in Tekken Tag 2 for my fighting fun, and i'm also getting stuck into Demon's Souls to keep my Dark Souls withdrawal symptoms at bay!

    Once I'm done with Dishonored I'm back to having next to nothing to play until AC3 starts the October/November onslaught of new titles.

    Tempted to rent something to fill the gap but nothing comes to mind. Maybe Forza Horizon but that's a week away.

    XCom. Loving it, the game drags some serious emotions out of you.

    XCOM at the moment and a damn fine game it is too!

    My books, contests, reviews and author interviews on my blog

  • Deleted user 18 October 2012 20:42:09
    So now doing some NG+ On dark souls. And started dead space 2 for a second time.

    Although at the time, Dead space 2, i enjoyed, i felt it never matched the first. But i just arrived at the church, and really loving it. The production values are amazing. probably the bests this gen? Graphics are so clean and nice. Shooting limbs of enemies and then using them to finish them off never gets old.

    I want to finish it through, but i ordered saints row 3, so not sure if i will. I normally just put in cod for a few days to last me off, but never intended of starting a game again.

    Playing through Saw (x360) again this week. By no means a good game but I've got to be honest here; the atmosphere is dead-on, you feel extremely vulnerable as there is a constant feeling of dread, knowing that death literally lurks around each and every corner. And compared to Silent Spin-off Homecoming - because it appears to be running on the same engine it's five times the survival horror game Homecoming should've been. I'd say give it a chance if you manage to find a very cheap used copy, there's definitely something to like about it. However, avoid the sequel at all costs.

    Funny thing for me this game, I really enjoyed the first one but I find I very rarely ever want to play the second. I've become a bit bored of it and I can't figure out why. I do think so of the grimness of the whole thing leaves me less inclined to play it too.

    You are a factory of sadness.

    Sweet! Got me the xbox versions of Brothers in Arms: Road to Hill 30 & Earned in Blood off of eBay last week and they just arrived this morning.
    Finished my first playthrough of Hell's Highway (x360) last week and didn't like it very much. However, I am replaying the game on Authentic and for some reason it just clicks with me.

    Kingdoms of Amalur. Seems a bit easy so pushing it up to hard. Quite impressed so far, its certainly dead easy to pick up all the moves and the inventory screen is a breeze to understand. Great colour to the game.
