Not as deep and engaging as id hoped; still a great game though.

Agreed. It gets a bit rote, but it is still fun to dink around with.

Its weird; is the lack of continious (vs. discrete/chunky) progression intentional? I found it kinda weird that my first 10 or so full games (prob more, just trying to hide how bad I am) were identical in terms of gameplay (ie no new ships/gadgets/whatever).

Note I have only ever played Normal which may have been a mistake in hindsight.

I've only beaten easy twice, so it would probably be a good idea to start with that.

I forget, did you back their project? You watching the backer update movie things? Pretty interesting to get a glimpse inside the studio.

Yep, I backed the project. The documentary has been really enjoyable, well worth the backing.

Still learning the intricasies of redstone in minecraft. Have the basics like powered rail, and auto-farms more or less down, still figuring out other things, like how to make a redstone repeater.

Torment: Tides of Numenera on Kickstarter has passed the 4 Million mark (with some extra funds coming in through paypal directly to them as well). It is now the highest funded game on Kickstarter, and continues to climb with about 2ish hours left. Looks like a decent fun game to play when it comes out...18 some months from now. Ha. But I figured it was worth a token $20 to get a copy of the game that will supposedly be so reactive and interesting from an RPG perspective. I'll just cut back on bananas for few weeks.

Torment on Kickstarter. 2ish hours to go if you want to hop in.

I just read that Sim City released some free DLC. It made me laugh, and I am glad I decided not to purchase this game.

The new addition is the Nissan Leaf Charging Station. Perhaps in an effort to convince you of how awesome the Leaf is, the station does not require any power, water, or even workers to function. It simply sits wherever you place it, and produces free happiness for nearby buildings. The station also does not create any sewage or garbage, and will even give some of your Sims (of all wealth classes) little electric cars to drive...It is undoubtedly the first of as many product tie-ins as EA can find.

Well Xbox minecraft finally got spawn eggs, the End (Endragon included), item frames, and you can walk on tilled dirt, among other things.

Only problem is, I have yet to be able to get into the End from creative, at least not by building an End portal. All of the Eyes of Ender go into the thing, and nothing happens. Kind of frustrating. And yes, I create it 3x3 and have tried it with and without lava below.

"Divinity - Original Sin" an RPG to make its way out in late 2013, is on kickstarter for some additional cash infusion to add more features to game. I've heard of the other Divinity games, but never played 'em. It looks kind of fun:

I'm currently playing no video game... I'm currently typing in this forum.

I just finished Hitman: Absolution I enjoyed it immensely!

With the new baby my gaming time has been cut drastically...

I am looking forward to The Last of Us coming out soon but it will probably be the last game I buy for my PS3
with the PS4 coming soon. And then I'm looking forward to Diablo III hope it transfers well to a console I'm curious as
to how it will play.

Just got done watching a series called Ultra Hardcore Minecraft with the Mindcrack members. Very entertaining, and very funny as well!
