My GF has been out of the apartment a lot, so I can finally play Portal 2 an hour or so a day without her watching and getting pissed off that I'm giving it away.

 

I'm going to read the older thread and pretend it's 2011 and that I'm playing it when everyone else did.

 

Really wish we didn't live in a goddamn loft sometimes.

I've made it up to the early Cave Johnson levels so far. It definitely seems a bit easier than some of the twitchier Portal the First bits, but the test chamber/level designs are still amazing. And while some of the solutions seem obvious and easy in retrospect, they're not immediately obvious. That plus the writing makes for some incredible pacing. The gameplay is great. I'm having a ton of fun. I'd love to get some ridiculous challenges with advanced chambers someday, but the single player game feels really nicely balanced as is.

 

I love how Valve can pull off genuinely funny broad humor whilst simultaneously building an actual emotional connection to the game (eg the slow Caroline reveal after saving the turret [i don't know exactly how this ends, don't tell me]).

 

I know Valve routinely get flack from fans of more open-world design, but what they do they do better than anyone. But I'm totes gay for good stories, anyway.

 

I have to wait for the GF to finish before we splitscreen the Co-op, but I'm looking forward to that.

 

Short answer: it's totally pulled me away from ME2 for the time being, and ME2 has been fucking awesome.

 

Edit: I know there's a Borealis ref coming and I'm a little apprehensive that it'll (a) not make much sense with HL2E2's story and (b) make me want to play HL3 which I am dead certain won't be revealed until MS and Sony have new generation consoles, and probably not early in that cycle.

Okay, Skyrim question for all of you:

 

Will this game become a tedious slog of micromanaging your inventory of bullshit and loot? I am sick to fuck of the WoW style character management.

 

Also, I am a wizard type caster and it's not very satisfying. Should I just go back to being a hack-and-slash type or does casting get better?

short answer: Yes.

 

If you just want to enjoy dungeon crawling and questing, don't try to level up in Enchanting, Smithing, or Alchemy. Then you are dealing with serious micromanagement. I spent a few hours of my second game just repeating processes to build up levels....I had hit lvl 30 before even doing a serious quest....

just played cod:mw3 the first time(singleplayer) and thought it was "meh"

there was something missing for me. the action was solid but to hectic for my taste. black ops was more my cup of tea . still have to play the special ops mode but i don't know if the time is worth it.

Such a good fucking game!

 

Yeah, I loved that one when I was a boy.

 

I remember playing that on the original Game Boy console, which used four AA batteries. I remember there being a POP in the battery case one time while playing it, probably from battery corrosion.

Nah Skyrim is satisfying, clocked about 60 hours. I started off as a hack and slasher but have since refined my enchanting and magic skills too, bit of an all rounder. Definitely worth levelling up your smithing skills quickly so you can improve weapons and armour, same with enchanting so you can make a reletavely tame one handed weapon into something pretty potent.

 

You can up your smithing skills quickly by making iron daggers, just buy or steal lots of iron ingot and leather strips.

 

I like just exploring and discovering shit, occasionally dipping into the main quest, just try not to hoard loads of pointless shit. You can store stuff in chests if you want to use them later.

I dunno, post-patch iron daggers hardly make a dent in the Smith leveling process it would seem.

 

Honestly if you wanted to get maximum enjoyment out of the game, just save up enough to buy a house to throw all your stuff in, sell the rest, and just go questing. The rest will come according to preference.
