Well, that's not many publishers left skipping Steamworks for retail products.

 

I suppose you won't be able to play Obsidian forum's most beloved Mass Effect 3 either because it will utilize Origin.

 

So either you stop playing video games or you start playing on consoles.

 

yes...yes I do play on consoles, as do millions of other ex-PC gamers chased off from PC games (which sold under a Billion dollars in sales last year, whilst console sales have risen over 20X the PC games market in an almost exponential rise in relation to DRM's rise).

 

I could start a console vs. PC war at this point probably, but won't.

Oh look, MW managed to derail the discussion into DRM, again.

 

Dam@$%$% #$%@%$,

 

You're right, and I got derailed right with it.

 

Starting the Uncharted series on the PS3 currently. On the PC considering Victoria, or wondering if they've fixed Elemental yet.

Don't blame me, I was asking about AP DRM removal patch and got offered some subpar rental online service ;) Of course I got into berserk mode :p

 

Back to topic, I just got Platinum Trophy for Final Fantasy XIII, with about 150 hours played, now playing White Knight Chronicles International and soon I'll start playing Hyperdimension Neptunia and Atelier Rorona... Hopefully I get soon my Alpha Protocol by mail, but I am affraid my PC is to ****ty for this game... and cba to upgrade to new PC, when I am actually purchasing like 1-2 PC games per year... down from 15-20 due to crappy business model and customer treatment in the PC games industry...

I think I will play some Drakensang: River of Time. But I'm going to do something special and play it with a British accent.

Done with Divine Divinity. I very much enjoyed it, but especially on the back of DS3 it makes me realise how hard it is to make ARPG combat fun and not a button masher. The intriguing thing is that Divinity 1 gives you a lot of options and interesting skills, a typical control scheme that works well, a huge world with lots of monsters to fight, etc. But in practice, skills are either not differentiated enough to bother using both, are balanced poorly and not worth wasting points on, etc., and you end up using, well, five or six active combat skills the entire game. (In my case, Meteor Strike and a sword killed everything, with occasional uses of Skeleton Wall, Life Leech, and later, Hellspike.) After the first few hours, I was just so tired of mashing left-click on everything. It didn't help that the loot system seemed to be broken - I was literally swimming in money after 5 hours and shops would almost never offer anything worth buying.

 

That said, it did a lot of things right - good seamless world full of interesting places, reasonably interesting quests, some nice touches of wry humour. I'd probably have enjoyed it a lot more if it featured IE-style combat or something, rather than Diablo.

World of Tanks and Dragon Age Origins.

 

I probably buy Dragon Age 2 after finishing Origins. It should be worth 15e.

My god! Second one here who plays WoT!

 

Haven't much played it in a while though, 30 day premium accounts would just go to waste for me during summer.

I've actually been playing a free-to-play MMO for a while:

 

http://www.realmofthemadgod.com/

 

You play it in a browser, it has.. almost 8-bit graphics, but it doesn't suck! It's actually fun!

 

I'm still unlocking the character classes because I suck..

Bought Shogun 2 from Steam sales. Difficulty seem to be higher then in previous Total War games (and I'm only playing Very Hard difficulty, not Legendary). Checked some of Steam stats and only 0,6% of all Shogun 2 players have managed to beat game on Legendary. I'm not sure if there's even "Let's Play" on youtube on that difficulty...

 

I really like the game but there seem to be nasty memory leak. I can only play like 20-30 minutes (or 2-3 turns) and game crashes. Task manager show no.1 prosessor at full force and memory to the max :lol:

 

Oh well, I've been rather lucky with previous Total War games. Had to experince "Creative Assembly" quality sooner or later.

Let's play Alpha Protocol

Been splitting time between Rift and Just Cause 2. I'm an artifact king in Rift, I've been selling my duplicates for a decent bit of coin.

Alice: The Madness Returns - so far it's been worth my day-one buy.

You're better off reading a synopsis on wikipedia, the plot is so badly told you'll have no idea what's going on (even if you played trigger multi times).

I never had a problem with understanding the plot.

Admittedly the game is slow in providing explanations and ties things a little too neatly but by the end nearly everything was plainly spelled-out.

Decided to play Singularity again before getting back into my backlog. I kind of felt the need for a game that was easy to get into and stay hooked into after tooling around in a bunch of different games.

Was thinking of replaying Fallout: NV, but I'm waiting for the remaining DLC before doing that. This gives me a chance to finish some games from my backlog.
