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.

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...

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.

That's next on my list (I'm still fully immersed in Europa Universalis IV).

This is very interesting. I think Red Dead is probably my favorite non-strategy game of all time and I had no problem connecting to the characters on the X-Box 360. You mention the monitor, but do you think it has something to do with where your PS3 is located in your house/apartment?

Humble Indie Bundle is back, and I apologise if someone has mentioned the link before:

http://www.humblebundle.com

You can pick up Batman Arkham Asylum, Arkham City, Scribblenauts and two of the F.E.A.R. games for under $10.

Maybe...I actually have a picture of the area online....it's in my basement in a pretty open area...really good DTS surround sound system...good sub woofer...the TV is 58"...I turn the lights off, so it's just me and the screen...

Image

I think maybe I sit too far away from the TV...I'm probably only about 8 or 9 feet away...

I should say that this is my favourite TV to watch movies on because I can really get absorbed...the room is really dark with the lights off...


I wonder if I'm just not as familiar with the PS3 controls as the computer keyboard/mouse combo. That might take my mind away from the game a little bit and hurt the immersion...

They are very good. I'd also recommend gog.com as worth checking out, though they're a different model. Humble Indie bundle let you pay what you want, but if you pay above average (currently around $5) you get more games.

Random question for the "portable gamers" (i.e. ... that handheld stuff which is more advanced them gameboy):

Are any of those consoles worth it?

Given their limited capacity, those kinds of games seem no greater than any flash ani. game on the internet. Convince me that I'm wrong, and I shall send forth an apology gif!

I've heard good things about the PS Vita, and if you have a Play Station and are on the go and want to continue playing games, it is evidently good for that.

But I'm pretty much PC only, so I don't know too much else.

Yeah, I think next time I play the PS3 I'll try plopping a chair in front of the sofa and see if that gets me more into the game...


That's how I play X-Box actually - in a small room, close to the TV. It almost simulates being at a computer, which, again, I've never thought about before. I can see how playing a game like Baldur's Gate would be less enthralling on a TV than on a computer.
