I played fallout 3 for a while. Now im playing skyrim.

Havn't been able to buy the dlcs yet. Waiting on my paycheck :(.

I bought GOTY edition i was like "YES I GET ALL DLCS". Installed it and all they did was give me a sheet of paper telling me they exist. I was pretty mad.

Then my brother a few days later saw another version of skyrim called the "delux edition" that came with DLCS.

I don't feel like buying GOTY and DELUX editions. So bethsoft well played, you just drained about 20 dollars out of my bank.

I've returned to Contra recently. It's been a worthy adversary.

Started playing The Walking Dead again. Finished Episode 4 yesterday, now on to Episode 5 (alone, because the whole group is just a bunch of wussies. Especially Kenny!)

Definitely as good as I remember it to be. Seriously, in terms of atmosphere, this is one of the best games I've ever played.

I'll also be playing Super Mario Sunshine a bit more frequently. My brother finally agreed to give me his GameCube (which he never uses anyway) so I moved it over to my apartment. I'm thinking about looking for some more GameCube games to add to my collection now. Tales of Symphonia and Paper Mario and the Thousand Year Door are two games I'd love to get my hands on someday. Maybe Animal Crossing and Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem too.

Nah, Dragon's Dogma is way better IMO. I haven't played DA, but I played the original game until near the end of NG+ when I was so powerful it became boring. Meteor storm was 1-hitting almost everything in the game. I just finished up the campaign of Saints Row 3 and it was alright. Starting up a new run of XCOM: Enemy Unkown on impossible now. I never would have played it if it wasn't free for PS+, but I was really missing out. I had a 24hr+ session when I started my first playthrough. I can't remember the last time I played a game for that long straight. 9/10 would highly recommend

Jester is finally joining the Witcher 2 party while redoing the co-op campaign for Splinter Cell: Conviction with a friend of mine. They're both pretty great.

I'm also going through Dark Souls for the first but it's on hold for the moment due to the aforementioned games.

If only they didn't gut content to push out lodsofdlc. It's still a good game, though, and I can't argue with the price of free. Did you get it from PS+ too?

I could fill this entire reply box and not say enough good things about this game.

Other titles you should check out:

Killer7
Viewtiful Joe
Soul Calibur II
Metroid Prime (no shit Sherlock)
Wind Waker (again)
RE4 (now this is just offensive)
RE0
Beyond Good and Evil
F Zero GX

Super Mario Sunshine gets a bad rap and it's not at all justified. The OST was amazingly varied, one of the best hub worlds, the Fludd mechanics were creative and the level design I dare say was even better than Mario 64.

Tales of Symphonia is some people's favourite in the Tales Of series, but more than likely they are suffering from FF7 syndrome. I mean it is well above average, but if you decide you are interested in the series take a trip down history road and give Tales of Destiny/Phantasia a chance and you decide you prefer them. (I certainly do, but I'm a sucker for 2D)

Paper Mario Thousand Year Door is a perfect sequel and deserves all the praise it gets. Super Mario RPG is still king though.

Animal Crossing I've never gotten into honestly, but I've seen people become obsessed with the game like an MMO, so play at your own caution.

General Tips:
Upgrading your weapon is more of a priority over leveling up.

The game world is open world, but if you find you're having too much trouble you're probably someplace you shouldn't be yet.

Do not kill NPCs.

Your starting class and gift do not matter in the grand scheme of things.

Any melee weapon that isn't obviously terrible is more than capable of carrying you through the whole game.

Stat returns past 40 are diminished.

Never put points in Res.

Kite enemies (bow and arrow) and tackle them one on one.

Always carry homeward bones with you. Also blooming purple moss.

READ ITEM/EQUIPMENT DESCRIPTIONS.

Do not use a guide for your first blind run, cherish the experience.

Do not use the Drake Sword, if you've never heard of it good forget I mentioned anything.

If Capra Demon rocks you hard focus on the dogs first, use a pine resin weapon buff and time your rolls so your Invincibility frames make you pass through his weapon.

The skeletons in the catacombs do not revive if killed with divine weapons.

Kindle the bonfire for more Estus flasks if you need it.

Spider shield prevents toxic. (Blight town)

Take your time and do not be afraid to explore.

May the flames guide thee, chosen undead.

I assume you mean Deus Ex Human Revolution? Both the original and HR are both fucking prime examples of brilliant game design. You're in for a wild ride my friend. Only real complaints were the boss battles and Adam Jenson sounding like Keanu Reeves. That aside the storyline is excellent, (blade runner vibe) acting/dialogue is above average, characters had depth, tons of abilities, nice pacing, open ended level design, fantastic AI, your choices were grey shaded rather than black/white, music fits the atmosphere and scope of the world and story, etc.

After you give the game a thorough play, pop back in here and share your thoughts.

12 Hrs. into Vagrant Story, Finished Disgaea IV and I'm past the child Ryu portion of BoFIII. Doing a quick 100% play-through of Super Metroid/ Metroid Fusion tonight, just in that sexy space bounty hunter mood ya know?

Purchased Rogue Legacy on Steam today so that's my new time sink. Roughly two and a half hours in so far and I cannot encourage you guys play it enough. Plays like a pseudo- Castlevania rogue like and has defined areas with bosses at the end. Along the way you collect gold which you can spend to acquire skills, upgrade your stats/equipment/etc and when you die you select between a few relatives of the previous character that had died. Since each have their own unique skills and traits, it adds some depth to the experience.

There are challenges sprinkled about in the levels, (A treasure chest will be at the end of a room littered with spikes and you have to reach it without taking damage or it will lock, just one example) the platforming controls seem solid and the art style is very reminiscent of something you would see here on Newgrounds -which could be seen as either a positive or negative-.

Sound wise the music is sparse although what is there isn't off-putting, I feel the sound effects for your dude/chick swing the sword and enemies screeching etc were all on point. There are plenty of different kinds of enemy designs throughout each themed stage. Level Design constantly changes with each run but I'd say overall it's fair most the time, luck does play a huge role in your success however.

So yeah, anyway, this is probably what will be eating up my time for the next few days-week. Might manage a few more hours of Vagrant Story, I know I'm nearing the 3/4 mark so it shouldn't be long now until i clear. Still unsure what title I'm gonna tackle next.

The last game I played (and have been playing for the past week or so) is Dark Souls. I love the amount of detail for exploration in each location on this game, as well as the distinctive bosses you face throughout the game.

Rogue Legacy. This game is amazing. It's basically Spelunky + 10,000,000 with its own interesting twists and gameplay. I love games like this and this is one of the best I've played.

I've been playing a lot of playstation all-stars battle royale recently. It's a fun game, a different mix from smash bros and fun online play.

I usually tend to not play games at launch, instead I wait 6 months or so and get the game on sale :D

Imma supa cheap ass!

I recently picked up Assassins's Creed for the pc, it was on a DVD of a computer magazine. Not far into it, only a few missions and I got my short blade back. So far I really like it and spend most of my time just freeroaming through the city and I am surprised how easily Altair can be controlled and pull of nice jumps and counter attacks - I am happy though that I have a XBox 360 controller because I can't imagine how difficult it would be to play it with keyboard and mouse ^^

Conquered the first two bosses and I'm Lvl 56 at the moment. Equipment wise I'm rocking the silver set (should probably upgrade) blood cape and the double jump bracer + life drain bracer. I've molded a very much tank character with high HP + Dmg and my favorite class thus far is either Hokage or Paladin, but Miner is great for gold farming. The game is an absolute blast and if a sequel of sorts is ever made my only real criticism is there needs to be more areas and bosses. The initial startup always being in the castle can and does get annoying after hours of play. (you can use the architect to lock the dungeon layout and use warp points, but still)

I've heard there is a NG+ option, so I'm not sure if it offers more equipment/classes/bosses/content of any kind, I guess I'll cross that bridge when I get to it.

Starting a Final Fantasy (origins on ps1) marathon, hoping to clear by Sunday. Going to rock Warrior/Monk/Red Mage/White Mage for diversity.

I'm Lvl 90 something and haven't even attempted the second boss. Not sure why, I could probably easily take him out at this point. I'm using a lot of blood armour and runes, enough for 11hp per kill anyway. Lich and Hokage are my favourites.

Haven't played Rogue Legacy in a couple days though. I bought Skyrim Legendary Edition for $32 on Gamefly, so I've played a bit of that. I kind of hate Skyrim, but with mods it's a lot more enjoyable for me. I can easily remove problems I had with the game or add new things to keep it fun. Also bought Cube World today and I can see a ton of potential in it. It's pretty fun at the moment, but because it's in Alpha it is missing so much. Can get boring, but I'm sticking with it.

Watched Gameplay for Reshelled it looked a lot lamer,less charming and surprisingly Cheesier in aesthetic then it's the original arcade release granted that it could have been more challenging seeing as the enemies your fighting could have freer movement in 3d space but this somehow makes it easier then before not to mention the \giving you 9 lives at the beginning.

Paper Mario Thousand Year Door is a perfect sequel and deserves all the praise it gets. Super Mario RPG is still king though.

Only thing is that the game is very expensive though.

Animal Crossing I've never gotten into honestly, but I've seen people become obsessed with the game like an MMO, so play at your own caution.

Yeah I can imagine. The game looks a bit "you either love it or hate it".

I've had some free time recently, so I've been playing through some Steam games I've collected over the years.

I just finished F.E.A.R. last week. Man that was a fun game, definitely one of my favorite FPS now. I've moved onto The Witcher which really surprised me how much I like it. I'm close to finishing chapter 2 so I got a ways to go with that. I also picked up The Witcher 2 on GOG when it was on sale so I have that lined up too.

The other game I've been playing on and off is Sword of the Stars: The Pit, a fun little rogue-like, which I highly recommend.

I finished Deus Ex HR and I'll make a larger post about it later.

Over all it was pretty damn good, but I don't quite think it was as good as I kept hearing about.

Oh also, those boss fights were awful. Like, really bad.
