A non-violent playthrough where my sexually-baffled dwarf can barter with hand-crafted pieces of sculpture made from living yoghurt. Yeah, I could dig that.

 

You are getting it mixed up with the Bioware version. I can see how you could do that. Obsidian has done sequels for enough Bioware games. The Obsidian version though has a slight difference: you don't play as the sexually-baffled dwarf but as the last hand-crafted piece of sculpture made from living yoghurt on an existential journey of self-discovery. One way of finishing the game is to allow yourself to be eaten by an orphanage of starving children.

And your Nana is one of the companions.

I'd say the answer to that question is kind of like the answer to "who's the sucker in this poker game?"*

GTA San Andreas on the iPhone!

It's out already?

 

I wonder if the Android version is out already?

 

Edit:  Looks like I have another week to wait for the Android version.  Hopefully my phone can handle it.

 

How does it play with touch controls?

The controls are decent enough, though I do miss having analog sticks, and driving motorcycles is very chaotic on a touch screen lol

 

 

I bought a MOGA Pocket (I think) and it's excellent. Great build quality and it works with most games (not counting the ones with official MOGA support). Works with iPhone too.

 

I highly recommend it. Both GTA Vice City and San Andreas support the MOGA.

Something like that for a tablet would be awesome, phones have too small screen for my liking.

 

Tablet full of emulators and games, drooooooool.

Yeah I was thinking of getting a MOGA, the analog sticks and backup battery is nice, especially since San Andreas is a massive battery drain unfortunately

Indeed. Though she is likely to betray you down the road.

Also I forgot to mention that the starving children are lactose intolerant.

The Walking Dead Season 1 Episode 2. Had to try many different solutions before I could start episode 2. The first episode, I had no problem launching and playing. EP2 wouldn't launch until I chose W)( compatibility mode. I must be in a weird dream or something.

Finished Dragon's Dogma (haven't played the expansion island yet, though).  The ending was a bit confusing simply in the fact that I was walking around as a ghost, unsure of what to do next.  So I had to reload to return to that area to do that thing (yeah, spoiler stuff) with the dragon sword.

So annoying. I bought GTA: Vice City for Android, but when I went to download it Google Play store says my device is not compatible with this version. Which it is.

 

I've been in contact with Rockstar support, asking them to add my device to the list of compatible devices. They copy pasted some generic "thank you for your interest in our games but we have no solution to your problem, follow our Twitter!" bs.

 

I finally gave up and sideloaded the stupid game onto my phone and now it runs like a dream. Better than the PS2 version (Snapdragon 600 + Adreno 320). Amazing, really. Works really great with my MOGA Pocket too.

 

Now to wait for GTA: San Andreas and hope I won't have to sideload that too.

Time for an Obsidian UT game then ?

 

Only if there is the option for a non-violent playthrough.

I have been a shooter fan since Goldeneye/Perfect Dark on the N64.  I played some CS 1.6 on PC back in the day too, but always had a console in the house growing up.  Right now I'm enjoying some Dead Rising 3 and Battlefield 4 on my Xbox One.  Very much looking forward to Titanfall, The Division, Watch Dogs, the next Halo, and hopefully some Rainbow Six within the next few years or so.  I've been dying slowly inside without my AAA anti-terrorism group.  I miss Ding.

Almost forgot!!!  DayZ Stand alone is a HUGE title for me.  I hope they bring it to consoles as well.  I think the Xbox One and PS4 would receive that kind of game very well.  It may be built for PC, but it would be ridiculously successful on that platform as a 20 dollar buy in XBLA/PSN.

Never was that much of a shooter fan.

Looking forward to Watch Dogs. Or I'd like to look forward to it, but I fear I'd be disappointed if I allowed myself to look forward to it and have expectations :)

My PS3 is still at service, so I dusted off the PS2 and booted up Star Ocean 3 after more than 2 years... What shocked me, is that I still remember even the smallest details of that game... I did not have felt anything like that with most of the current gen games I played... I have played this game for the first time in 2011...

I think I'm getting five copies of W2 due to all the various intertwined rewards. Yeah....

dibs on one of those, if any are available :lol: I'd rather trade with you then buy from InXile, if you don't mind  :cat:

 

Sure, only need had one copy reserved beyond the one for myself anyway so the rest are spare.

 

 

Gonna have to remember to ask for a copy too over a year when it's finally released :)

Never played Wastelands. Never heard of InXile before the KS... so really wasn't going to give them any money from the get-go.

Also, have another kitty... :cat:

 

 

I never played Wasteland to, so I am kind of unsure about the game. I liked Fallout 1 but for some reason, which is completely unknown to me now, I never finished Fallout 2. Might be because I am not much fan of the "modern" settings in the games? Don't know. So I am kinda not really sure if W2 is for me or not. If you still have one key available, I would appreciate the chance to try out the game.

 

And I can give kitty too :cat:

Worked, watched TV, tried out my new Brandy Snifter.

 

None of that is games I am playing, however. So Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen! I went through the Saint's Row IV DLCs yesterday. Didn't catch my eye as being all that fantastic, however. I'd say to give them a miss unless you absolutely loved SR 4.

Played through Saints Row IV. Fun game, as over the top as ever, but it feels like it's missing something to push it into "crosses the line twice" territory.

Also some Revelations, which my disk is apparently smuged to heck or my PS3 is starting to give up the ghost, as it keeps refusing to load unless I'm at the right time of day.

Dragon Age Origins, doing a DLC before Landsmeet, will probably finish after finals.

Re-installed/re-trying Rift. I always liked it better than WoW, just never had the community in the game. I only installed it last night but it feels better than WoW does anymore, probably because the graphics are at a higher level than those found in WoW. And I'm not sure how much longer WoW can survive, It seems like Warlords of Draenor may be pushing to hard for some players and the devs need to just break everything from the ground up and rebuild the game with updated systems to include what they learned over their 9ish years of gaming relevancy.

 

Is it odd that one of the things I love the most about Rift over WoW is the sound design? Hearing the "Thwip" of an arrow as it leaves your bow just sounds better than the WoW sound effect (twang). If you can hear the wow sound over the various rumbles and booms of other spells going off and the boss screaming.

Did you play the Dominatrix? 

 

Yeah, I don't know how you can cross more lines than Enter the Dominatrix.  That DLC is completely bonkers.  They pretty much take the 4th wall, smash it, grind it into dust, set the dust on fire, then take a leak on the ashes.

I didn't play Enter the Dominatrix... I was just expecting (in a cyber world shaped by our "heroes") something like a nuclear power plant in the shape of a woman with cooling dome breasts. Or something else juvinile like that (Or a stripper pole with an active stripper on the ship or something).

With SR4 they somewhat moved away from "porn" territory, which, supposedly was something THQ more pushed them to do than what the devs wanted to do themselves, and more into just straight goofball wackiness territory.

Is it weird that I sorta want to play Mass Effect?  I wonder if I can find the disc...

 

 

Edit:  I did!  It was in a stack of bare discs on a shelf, right between Civ4: Beyond the Sword and BG2: ToB. 

 

Edit2:  It says "Disc 1" on it.  Not a good sign. 

 

Edit3:  "Disc 1" is a lie.  I found the box, with the manual and CD Key in it.  According to the manual, there is no second disc.  Attempting install.  (Also, LOL at remembering that the video named "SarenSuicide" is one of the very first files that pops up in the installer!)

Tried playing some Far Cry 2. Not really feeling any magic from it. Some stunning vistas, but the running back and forth and back and forth and back and forth isn't really catching me.
