I guess it's not surprising, but dagnammit, Lonesome Road is delayed.

Speaking of which, I'm currently playing Old World Blues and loving every minute of it. Nicely expansive and wonderfully 50s retro-sci fi in flavour.

What's the New Vegas DLC like? Worth getting?

I wasn't a fan of Dead Money, and Honest Hearts was a bit short.

The Dragon Age 2 Legacy DLC is very good. Adds some nice new touches to the mix and has an interesting little storyline.

Also, I'm on Chapter 2 of Deadly Premonition. It's baking my brain a bit with it's quirkiness and is a bit broken but I can see why we've all taken it to our hearts.

Addicted to fishing on Animal Crossing. I caught a hammerhead shark today and was kind enough to donate it to the museum even though it would have made a big dent in my latest loan if I had sold it.


Huzzah, I caught another one today! happy.gif

Brain baked on chapter 2...prepare for meltdown by the end, that's all I'll say.
I do love the unpolished nature of it all for some reason. Seeing clear lines between the textures makes me laugh. Have you spotted the deer that sometimes pops up on the side of the road whilst driving? The animation is so terrible that I'd like to think Swery decided to leave it in as a joke.
I'm also in love with the music, much as it was jarring at first with its repetitiveness and odd placement. The whistling tune and the song dubbed "Miss Stiletto Heels" by the fans really stick with me, I find myself humming them from time to time.
There's no official release for the soundtrack but I've just found a ripped version here.

Yep, it's pretty funny, and once it kicks off be prepared to be in combat ... a lot. Best of the lot so far.

The music is incredible - I love the mad scary jazzy one. The whistling tune is almost identical to a tune from Super Mario World, and the race driving music is clearly a cheeky rip-off of American Idiot by Green Day.

I'm just going back to replay a few chapters, pick up some of the trading cards and side missions I missed, mainly early on in the game when I was just trying to make sense of what was going on and neglected the extra bits, but they're often more fun than the main missions.

Do it! I've been eyeing the GameCube game, just for variety.

I was so confused by the racing music at first, wondering if it was intended to be so similar. Playing a little more it became clear it had to be and I love the game all the more for it. That happened a lot over the course of the game oddly enough.

I'm going to make a push to get the side quests done over the weekend myself, I'm very curious to see what plot details passed me by in those first few chapters, I too didn't do too much wandering at first. The time limit scared me until I realised it's the most forgiving day/night cycle I've known in a game.

By the way, (If you've not played through it yet , DON'T READ THIS! SERIOUSLY!)did you guess Forrest Kayson from the coffee clue at the start? I did but then got double crossed by the way he's made to seem sympathetic as you search for the bound agent Morgan as Emily. I've certainly never had a game play so much with my sense of what's going on and who to believe.

I ordered Swerty previous game on Amazon for the princely sum of 3, it's called Spy Fiction. Looking forward to seeing what it's like, I know it has some quirky anachronistic design choices much like Deadly Premonition so hopefully it'll in some way offer a similar experience.

Hey Jon, the game you were thinking of wasn't De Blob was it?

I played the Japanese demo for Final Fantasy Type-0 yesterday and its damn good; if it's even a slight indication of what FF Vs 13 will be like then I'm very excited.
It's really quite dark and violent, lots of blood in the opening movie; to extract man from fallen enemies it looks like you destroy them and turn them into a "red mist" that you absorb; if you finish an enemy with a fire spell they'll actually be on fire flailing around and their corpse will be nice and charred on the ground.
The combat is like Crisis Core (but more advanced) and Kingdom Hearts I guess. From what I can see you'll eventually get airships to fly around again (something Versus 13 is doing, as well as vehicles biggrin.gif).

I hope they release Type-0 in English, but it has got me really hopeful for Versus 13

No. The game was purely black and white and more abstract. You couldn't see any corridor or platform until you shot it. I think the character you play is human although it may've been a first-person pov.

A virtual jaffa cake to to any one who knows what game i'm talking about.
