I just played Ghost Trick, that was so good - some of the best 3d animation I've seen!

If I remember right, it's all actually 2D rotoscoped animation of 3d animation, or something. Anyway, yeah its really good.

Yup, that sounds about right.

The 2d look was great, but the 3d animation was really, really well done. The characters just have great motion that shows a lot of personality. Even little gestures were a treat!

Haven't played since a couple years ago when I got trapped on a train station after sitting on the wrong train, but one scene sticks out in my mind. I think it's two guards, and one does a little dance or something, I just remember that being amazingly well animated.

Ghost Trick's style really draws me in, and I've been meaning to play it since it first came out. but my backlog of DS games is huge. At the top of the list I've got Front Mission, Castlevania Dawn of Sorrow, Henry Hatsworth, the second and third phoenix wright games, and Monster Tale. And then I've got at least ten other unplayed games sitting on my card, not counting the GBA ones.

Been playing Overwatch recently. It's pretty good. Very polished, lots of fun. I don't necessarily know if I agree with the vocal minority of people screaming about balance issues but I do see why some people wish there was something more to do in game. As of right now I've played for about 7 hours and I find myself starting to get a little burnt out on it already.

But then... I decide to pick it up and play it again. It's one of those games that's good in short bursts which I can appreciate. Idk if it's necessarily worth the 40 dollar entry fee but I'm sort of counting on Blizzard to give this game the support and love that it has given all its other games in the past. Maybe some new maps, modes, and characters will come down the pipeline at some point. I just hope they don't make me pay for it or some bullshit (which they probably will. :/)

Not bad. We'll see how much I sit down and play it this summer. If nothing else it's pulling me in more than TF2 ever managed to do.

Did you find them? They're in the very first location in the game, in the apartment you wake up in!

Also funny thing? My uncle did the writing for basically all the side-quests in Dying Light (but none of the main story).

So if it seems like the side-quests are pretty bizarre, you've got some fraction of my genetic heredity to thank

I've been pouring a majority of my time into Fallout 4. It's a pretty good game, I guess. Don't really feel as though there's as much freedom as there was in the previous games, and the new perk system really confirms the term "Like Skyrim with guns", but all in all it's still fairly enjoyable. I just like caving people's heads in with my rocket-powered sledgehammer.

Oh shit, really? That's pretty fuckin' cool. I might check this game out just for that fact alone.

I've decided to give it a year and wait for the inevitable "put the rpg back in" mods

Started playing Dying Light. Looking at every refrigerator for CC magnets.
thats it. i will buy ''dying light'', just for that fact alone.
(i already knew that, but i guess it will be more fun if i buy the actual game)

i wonder who added those magnets tho... the dude must've been a former clock, im sure about this. (or, in the very least, he was familiar with the CC's mythos in general)

Also funny thing? My uncle did the writing for basically all the side-quests in Dying Light (but none of the main story).
really? cool! you could've suggested him to add a few CC hints here and there...
oh well, its still good, i guess!

No way! That's so awesome.

Oh damn, really? I started looking at every fridge I saw, but I must have missed it. I'm sure I'll be headed back there after my current mission, so I'll definitely look more closely.

Edit: Hm. Just scoured the building and only saw one fridge with magnets, but they were just squares of color. Maybe it's in one of the rooms I don't have access to yet? I just finished the prologue so I'm not very far.

Edit 2: Nope, this looks like it's supposed to be the refrigerator (comparing it to the original screenshot of the CC magnets). Did they patch them out for some reason? Hm.

Yeah. If someone saw us or NG talking about it and got nervous we might sue or something... or if they were worried about us affecting their image... then lol.

uhhh sorry to bump, but are the clock-shaped magnets removed from ''dying light''?
if so, i will not buy the game.

(however, if the PS3 version still has the CC magnets in it, then i will get it, it will be a cool CC memorabilia)

I've gotten into the new Doom recently, it's a ton of fun. There are some games out there such as Spec Ops: The Line or Undertale where the big twist is that 'you where the real monster all along'. It's revealed in the prologue that this is one of those games, the difference being that not only does the game not chide you for it, it encourages it.

This game is the physical embodiment of the idea that first person shooters don't need sprint or any wall running gimmicky movement stuff to feel fast paced as everything runs incredibly smoothly and frantically. The best way to get health when you are low is by performing glory kills, which means that when you are in a tight spot, your best bet is to run towards the action as opposed to away from it. I like to explore the environments in the games I play and love the details they put into the locations from Hell to the facility using it as an energy source.

*starts saving up for this game*

I've been watching Vinny from Vinesauce play that and it looks like a lot of good honest fun! Though being strapped for cash myself, I'm still playing custom Doom II wads and older games I have in the meantime.

I did also get Cities Skylines for sale recently though! I had just enough in my steam wallet for something cheap. My PC isn't that great so the framerates aren't that smooth, but it's at least not as bad as how some other games have run on it recently. I used to play quite a lot of Sim City 4 and the new Sim City that had come out was pretty boring (I played that one a total of twice ever) so I'm hoping to get into it as soon as I fix some optimization stuff with my PC.

just got boxboy and majora's mask 3ds. I haven't started majora yet but boxboy is so damn charming and fun. pushmo bored me to tears but this game hasn't had a single dull moment. definitely the best puzzle platformer I've played on the system so far, even more than than Yumi's Odd Odyssey. it's the same dudes who made kirby and it really shows, though it's a completely different experience.

I'm playing through 999 and despite the cheesy writing I'm really getting into the Agatha-Christie style mystery. Enjoying speculating about who's telling the truth, what kind of betrayals/conspiracies might be going on, and it's cool that there's a mathematical system to check my theories against.

Also I've tried out the new Torment: Tides of Numenera beta. The writing sticks a little too close to the original game, but it's not as bad as, say, Star Wars VII. Overall, it's working! I loved the original Torment so it's heartening to see the sequel treated this well. I wrote up a bunch about my first couple hours here.

999 is one of my favorite games ever... not really gonna add more to that just thought I'd like to say

i played a few things..
grow home - very cute, very short. i enjoyed what i played and it felt good to climb and really get real fucking high in the clouds by the end of it. it's odd that i never really felt "vertigo" from being so high up, i guess it's the way the gameplay works you're only really focusing on where you are at the moment and not your context in the world. until you take a second to look down and really see how god damn high you are
metal gear rising revengeance - for the first hour or two I really wasn't getting into it, I just didn't "get it". but at some point in the 2nd or 3rd level I finally figured out to reliably parry and how to deal with most enemies and everything sort of clicked back into place, I really enjoyed the entire middle portion of the game. by the end it got a bit dodgy with the frustrating aspects of killing enemies which I assume becomes the norm on higher difficulties but I didn't matter too much. by the end of it all i'd say i liked it
the bridge - indie puzzle platformer about rotating the world to get shit done. everything feels molasses slow and movement feels like shit and you're slipping and sliding constantly like an asshole who can't get a fucking grip. dropped it like halfway through the 2nd world cause i just couldn't give a shit about this game
door kickers - real time/pause plan top-down SWAT game. it's a real treat to spend quite a while planning out an *entire* mission at the start of it and unpause and watch all the bad guys get shot real hard. i got kind of frustrated at the mission that introduces having a bunch of locked doors and gates that take too damn long to break while having to stop the enemy from destroying evidence so i stopped, but i guess at some point i'll get back to it...

mostly i've just been playing tf2 and warframe like a dipshit despite having like 100 more games i have never even touched

Yeah, I got it as one of the free PSN games and wasn't disappointed. They've included some excellent indie games through that.

I feel the same way ("I don't 'get it'") every time I play a game like that. Devil May Cry and Bayonetta come to mind right away. I keep hearing that Bayonetta 2 is one of the best games of its year, but I got bored of the first game halfway through. I was excited about Revengeance when it was announced, but I've been too scurred to pick it up.

Grow home is one of my favorite games. Great scope, hilarious gameplay, and the sound design is soooo good!

I got the now-expired humble bundle and tried Hand of Fate, which I've heard a lot of good things about. But the batman-y combo slashing gameplay just turned me off. I bounced after the first hour :(

I also bought the original XCOM from GOG, installed the open-source OpenXCom update, then tried the total conversion mod, X-Piratez. So far I'm impressed at how realized the setting is - the aliens won a long time ago, and you play a fringe group of raiders causing trouble for the government and various mega-corporations. Much more melee combat, it feels brutal. Looking forward to playing more.
