Perhaps that just means dingoes are direct descendants of raptors.

So... my advice to anyone trying to get someone who sucks at FPS but likes RPGs to play FPS... Borderlands 2 is a gateway drug

I've still been playing Monaco a lot. 100%-ed it last week, but I've just been jumping around helping people clean out random levels for fun.

Gave up on Deadlight. Nice idea, atrocious execution in that one. Needed to be more Limbo, less Bubsy.

I've got Metro 2033 thanks to a generous acquaintance. Might start that up, but there's also Dust 514 to review. E3's coming up, which ironically means I will be able to play no games.

FYI for Metro 2033, I liked the game a lot but be warned that the engine is optimized for crap. It's like the old Crysis meme. So if you don't have a monster of a machine, don't be shy about fiddling with the settings if the performance isn't there.

I personally thought it ran fine on my old i3-530 with the GTX 9800+ but I've heard plenty of opinions to the contrary about it.

Last Light is a new engine and runs much better.

Thanks, I'll keep that in mind. The rig's no monster, but it's solid. Will be ready to adjust as necessary.

Now you can wait for GOTY edition!

4A announced that they got the green light to product DLC for Last Light with a Season Pass coming out. Supposedly four content expansions detailing different stories from the Metro beyond Artyom's.

Not sure if being sarcastic or...

Anyway If you need an invite to the guild I still have the game installed. Just dont ask me to play. Smite and LoL are my drugs of choice til sunday when Ill be netless then i have 300 gigs of games installed to burn through. Not sure if I should do Hitman, Sleeping Dogs, Blood Dragon, Mass Effect series, or insert other title here game first. Hopefully I can burn though my backlog quickly with no internet/tv to distract me.

ofc sarcasm.

I tried Smite last weekend, and its also the first MOBA game ive played. Is there any form of persistent progression with these games, or do you just start at square 1 every match?

There's nothing wrong with the latter, and it makes sense for fair competition, but that's just not for me.

Smite is still in Beta So no no real progression. LoL on the other hand your summoner level goes up and you get wow like talentsand rune slots that unlock that give bonuses to the character you're playing.

They just introduced "God Levels" this last patch after a fight your god earns Followers, atm it doesnt do anything cept increase your beta rank but It will probably lead to something like LoL summoner level.

So, after playing Bioshock Infinite, Tomb Raider, Borderlands 2 and Metro: Last Light I'm sort of stuck. Mainly because I'm not sure what to play next that won't be a step down in quality. I really sort of had a winning streak going there for good games.

I'm playing Dust 514 for review. It's so bad that I have to chase gameplay sessions with other, better shooters.

So much potential with it, but the meta-game is barely integrated, the real money transactions are ubiquitous, and the gameplay is atrocious.

Gonna start up Metro 2033 this weekend, and maybe go back to Red Dead Redemption or something.

Ya, I remember when I first played it for the 360, got to my first vehicle mission on a planet, controls were horrid, I died instantly as I was swarmed by some enemies. I actually stopped playing then.

Didn't pick up back up until later when I got it on sale for the PC.

I actually think it's easier on the 360 than the PC.

I hit my one month non official burnout point for MMOs in Age of Wushu this weekend so I picked up Dust An Elysian Tale on a whim for 13 bucks. It had some pretty good reviews and even the Steam forums seemed unusually bright and cheery about it. So I figured wtf?

It's a bit hard on the eyes at 1080P resolution so I bumped it down to a window and I prefer that. So far it's a fun action platformer RPG hybrid with a surprisingly decent story. Kind of a weird blend of cutesy and dark at the same time.

Still trying for a 1000 hit combo but got some high 300's. Had to stop playing last night to go to bed after about 8 hours. I think it's maybe in the 20ish hour range overall depending if you hunt for chests and reclear areas for side missions.

*edit to say full controller support works very fluidly.

Just playing TF2 until I feel inspired to play something else.

I picked up about $150 in computer bits from Memorial Day sales and will throw together a "new" i3 system this weekend to replace my old 2006 Dell. I already had the processor, hard drive and video card so it was mainly waiting to find an 1156 motherboard for a reasonable price (eBay) then filling the holes. Upshot being that this system will be more than TF2 capable so I'll be able to fulfill my dreams of getting my 14 year old son to play and then ubersawing him in the kidneys.

I think the prefered tactic is to blind someone with a flashlight/red dot. ..... Yeah lifelike


Edit: Did I mention from across the map too? I undersand running into someone with a flash light in a dark corridor and being momentarily blinded but I remember being blinded in daylight with a guy had a flashlight at a good distance.

No, I think he(she? sorry, dunno) means Valkyrie Profile: Covenant of the Plume. Tactical RPG. I played it here. I played it for a little while, but never finished it, as I did with most DS games a few years ago. I own a card that allows me to try any games I want...
