Have you played Limbo?

It's a good "dink around" game...

Pokemon Yellow?

I'd go with either of the Red/Blue/Yellow(gold?) (1st gen)
I spent days playing that without fail :). I'll accept up to 3rd gen as well, but pokemon y/x are simply lacking in creativity from what I've seen/heard. :sick: (I mean some of the evolutions are, simply inane.) Also played mystery dungeon which wasn't bad for the new concept.

How is no one playing GTA V? And I don't mean that shitty multiplayer mode... I mean just the kick ass, basic storyline...

Got better things to do than that... Also I would replay Mirrors Edge more than 4x than that.

hey, i've got nostalgia for the old games too, but x/y is the biggest leap forward since gold/silver. and almost all of it is in good ways.

Mirrors Edge? Cinematically, it ruled, but after one time through, blah... Had a great soundtrack too, as I recall... been a long time since i played it.

dink around game?

it's a good game, but very short, and it doesn't have much replay value.

It's the kind of game I like to dink around with...I'll play it when I need a short break...solve one puzzle and close it and get back to work.


I'm finding Red Dead Redemption to be so-so. I think I don't get the same connection to the characters in console games...it might be the bigger room that hurts the immersion...being more aware of reality...not sure...some day I'll bring the PS3 up to my computer desk and play it through my monitor and see how it is...

I haven't touched the franchise since Crystal, so yeah.

Amazon had a deal on the Walking Dead (the Tell Tale Episodic Game) and the DLC for like 7 bucks, so I picked it up. More of an interactive sort of choose your own adventure story than a real game, but probably worth the 7 bucks.

Really a visual novel, but I've been watching Millbeeful's LP of Katawa Shoujo. Over 100 episodes (not quite done with it) and each and every one is pretty funny the way he does it.

everyone laughs at the concept of katawo shoujo... and then they play it... and then they cry

it would probably be just as well to watch an LP of it, though, since it's mostly dialogue

Millbee makes the sad and depressing moments funny. You should check it out sometime.

But he does a great job with cliffhangers, to the point it frustrates those watching his videos.

Two items to mention: Humble Bundle is now officially launching a store (since indie developers have long been using their check out system anyways): https://www.humblebundle.com/store Some discounts on a few titles in this initial launch.

Also, FTL is getting a free expansion, due out in early 2014. It will also be available in IPAD as well. Here are the deets of the new expansion:

FTL: Advanced Edition

We’ve been working hard over the summer and are excited to finally officially announce a free expansion, FTL: Advanced Edition! FTL: AE is a huge content addition that includes new weapons, drones, augments, systems, enemies, and more. Here are some details on just a few of the additions visible in the trailer:

Mind Control System: Temporarily turn enemies into allies. Force a boarder to repair the damage they just did, or have the enemy pilot sabotage their own helm.

Hacking System: Lockdown and disrupt enemy systems. Unique effects for each system, ranging from forcing a teleporter remove boarders to making the medbay damage instead of heal.

New Sector and Events: Our writer Tom Jubert has returned along with special guest writer Chris Avellone (of Planescape fame), who managed to find some time for us between his work on Project Eternity and Wasteland 2. They’ve been helping us add a new sector and scatter new events throughout the rest of the game.

New Weapons and Effects: Many new weapons that take advantage of new mechanics: overcharging to increase the number of volleys, stun effects to freeze crew, and area effect targeting, to name a few.

And more systems, drones, augments, enemy ships, enemy layouts, and hostile environments. All of which we’ll be sure to talk about more in the coming weeks!

In addition to new content, we’ve continued to polish FTL and add some of the most requested small features. As a few examples: you’ll be able to save your crew positions and send them back to battle-stations, save and quit during combat, and find more items for purchase in stores.

For the purists out there, FTL vanilla will still be available. All of the new content can be disabled from within the hangar before starting a new game.
