    Last game I played was Bioshock Infinite. Yeah. That was sick.

    I really want to get my hands on Dead Space 3 next. From the reviews I gather it's no where near the first two, but I still want to finish the fight.
    Aaand sold.


    Be it through hallowed grounds or lands of sorrow
    The Forger's wake is bereft and fallow

    Is the residuum worth the cost of destruction and maiming;
    Or is the shaping a culling and exercise in taming?

    The road's goal is the Origin of Being
    But be wary through what thickets it winds.

    Concerning Dead Space 3...well, haven't played it, but I know the ending(s), so if you aren't afraid of spoilers:

    Hidden Content:

    If you're looking to "finish the fight," you may be disapointed. The game itself has a concrete ending, one I feel that could have ended the series quite well IMO. However, the Awakened DLC ends on a big cliffhanger, making it clear that the fight isn't finished.

    What I played lately:

    Smite (8/10): So I usually hate on them MOBA and I thought the concept of gods vs gods was unoriginal and boring but... to my great surprise, this game ended up being a blast to play. Go try it, it's f2p anyways.

    SWTOR (8/10): Bioware doing an MMO = win. It's the first time I actually somewhat cared about the story in an MMO. Plus, there's nothing like running around town and turning on your light saber.

    Killing Floor (7/10): Fun game to play with friends.

    Ragnarok 2 (2/10): Typical poor WoW clone. I don't care if it's f2p, you'd have to pay me to play it.

    Warframe (7/10): Fun action game. Didn't play too much but it's something I'd see myself going back to once in a while.

    Red dead redemption (8/10): Fun but like in any rockstar game; I always end up going on a rampage.

    By the way I'm looking for a good pc co-op game. Any not too obvious suggestions(I've already played all the new popular stuff)?

    Heh, being a Rockstar game, isn't that kind of expected of you?

    Anyway, can't really comment on any of the other games I'm afraid, and since I play most games on console, I can't really suggest co-op PC games of any particular note. Adding to my list, I've started playing Gears of War 3, which is currently set for "good" or "excellent" categorization, but there's been a lot of hiccups along the way.

    Just finished the major quests in Skyrim, and boy, it only took me a single year....

    Anyways, just started Assasin's Creed for the first time.

    Really like the atmosphere and the setting. The inception idea of it is also pretty awesome. Though, I can see that the guy during modern times eventually will be a playable assassin seeing that he wears a white hoodie. And then you'll pop out of an Animus device in the future.

    That would be a nice ploy.

    Besides that, still need to finis Half Life 2 and Fallout New Vegas.

    Yeah..I'm slow.

    I did finish Heart of the Swarm, but due to my computer, it really wasn't that enjoyable. I'm sure it will be better if it doesn't lag every other second.

    I could never get into Assassin's Creed gameplay-wise, but I like the setting/story for the most part, hence relying on novelizations and its wiki for info.

    As for Half-Life 2, it's a game I regard as "okay," but the good type of okay, the one where at times it's great, at times it's terrible, and different people are going to get different experiences out of it probably.

    As for currently playing stuff, being overseas, played through The Two Towers on GBA as a breather before getting back to Gears of War 3. It's another game I rank as "okay" - decent, but as far as ARPG's go, it's hardly got any depth when compared to the Diablo games for instance. Unfortunately, having played through Arragorn's path, I've got to choose whether it's worth picking another one, since Arragorn's is (IMO) the most enjoyable.

    So I recently got into this visionary FPS with the most inmersive war experience...Battlefield 1942, of course, and while it can be fun at stages I don't really get the "older games are better than today's" vibe that people usually say about the franchise.

    Anyway, I also got into a bit of Heart of the Swarm multiplayer thanks to spawning and combined with the UI revamp and small changes to the core game gotta say SC2 is still fun to play, specially with the Arcade pumping out cool maps every now and then.

    every now and then.
    Yeah, I hear there's actually been a new edition to the top ten. That's been almost the exact same since WOL beta



    Rest In Peace, Old Friend.
