You are EVIL! Damn this game is so... wrong for me, I just twitch to restart so I can make it more efficient, more, more ... nooo it calls me, even now I see the need to move conveyors, change lines... nooo.

In all seriousness this game will drive anyone with OCD crazy, there is just so many ways to do things but is it the right one or... any way *koff*
My only gripe at the moment is how hard it is to go from placing things to reacting to a attack, 9 out of 10 times I get attacked while holding items and pressing ESC brings up the main menu, you cant fire, you have to calmly put the item on your toolbar and THEN shoot the alien who is nibbling on your privates... items cost money after all :P

It is very addictive, be warned.
Sometimes keeping an eye on your stats is not a good thing :P

Some things are painfully obvious, others must be made obvious... painfully

Had to look for it. Looks a little like a cross between thief in the shalebridge cradle and bioshock graphics, besides this being a bespoke game engine, that apparently took some time to perfect.

It is just a shame that the demos don't really portray what the game is about.

Usually when I see trailers that don't show what the game is about,it reminds me of the film adverts where they show the best few minutes of a film to promote it. Those few minutes being the only part of the film that is enjoyable.

What they need to do is try and portray more about the game, but all you get is they are the makers of amnesia, which if you haven't played still gives you no clue.

Life is Strange EP 5. They should fire each and every person that was working on the story. The ending is even worse than that of Mass Effect 3.

In freecycle mode at the moment, given many games are just not to my taste or there is no demo.

Games Played at the moment, other than CSS
Left 4 Dead 2
Supreme Commander
Elite Dangerous

I was thinking of revisiting the earlier Thief games. I find that many games that have been made for games consoles are not that good when adapted for the PC.

I'm hooked on Star Wars Galaxies again so mostly playing that.

Playing a bit of SWTOR now that the new expansion is out and major game reforms have been made. Also dropping into Tales of Zestiria which so far lives up to the "Tales of" name.

When I get some spare time I try to jump into Elite Dangerous, whilst I'm not playing it as much as I did do, I still love this game!

If you ignore the 30fps lock it's a very good game. Some refreshing mechanics like merging equipment of the same name to produce stronger equipment. They have taken some of the best elements of previous "Tales of" games. One of the best ports I've seen this year tbh. Plus I love the anime cut scenes.

As for price, I felt it was worth it during pre-purchase because of the extras it came with. Although personal preference, it's probably worth full price anyway based on the amount of hours you could get out of it.

I've been getting an itch to play SWTOR again, haven't played since launch (I can't believe it's been nearly 4 years now!) but remember enjoying it a lot until I started to get bored of the grind - like most MMOs - but I hear they've stripped away some of the mundane questing and that the new expansion is pretty good.

Also been interested in Tales of Zestiria, but I'm watching my wallet for a PC Upgrade for Fallout 4.

Back on topic: I've been playing a lot of Fallout: New Vegas, and I was playing a ton of X-Com: Long War but I think I'm finally burnt out on that.

Yeah they have stripped back the questing and reformed it so much so that it feels less grindy. People are stating that it's 6x more exp that before the expansion. This is the 3rd expansion for SWTOR and without a doubt the best one. The first was awful as far as I'm concerned, the second was a step in the right direction. My only annoyance is that you have to play through them both to get to the last one unless you want to grind exp through PvP or Pve instances.

I was invited to the closed beta a couple days ago but the ethernet here (uni) doesn't allow gaming basically because *some vague muttering*

Final Fantasy X PS2. I never finished it and couldn't remember where I'd got to so started it again just to finish it. It's the FF where I kind out fell out of love with the series as it lacks some of the fun of the previous games and likes throwing multiple boss fights along with a bit too much of a grinding necessity for certain sections. It's a real pain where it loses you Yuna and you have to go too long with no summons or healer and then the dragon fight with still no healer.

The local Sainsbury tempted me into a copy of South Park Stick of Truth PS3 as they were selling it off for £7.99. So far I have pooped and made friends with Butters, this game pleases me.
