You'll have to tell us what you think when you finish it!

 

Eh, I'm only a week late with my reply, almost :v .

 

Other than being fantastic there's not much else to say. You see, I've already finished the base game a few times with some neat texture packs for Darkplaces but I've never ventured any further (mods and even the expansion packs), so this time around I'm doing just that. I'm also streaming the game if you're interested.

 

Also revisiting Duke Caribbean and damn it I don't remember some of the incredibly frustrating enemies.

I have been playing Castlevania: Symphony Of The Night for a while now and I'm enjoying it so far. I've made it in the Inverted Castle and I have to say, it's one hell of a difficult turn in the game.

Just get two Crissaegrims in the Forbidden library, equip one in each hand and lawnmower your way through the rest of the game. I should go back and play through that game again, it's been probably 10 years. It's really enjoyable, and I love the inverted castle, it's a nice way to extend the game.

 

Right now I'm replaying what's available for Amid Evil. I wasn't terribly impressed when I played through the first three episodes, but that's probably been almost a year. Going back through them, it's apparent they've done quite a few updates to the combat and the enemies; the game is quite a bit funner this time through. The first time most of the enemies felt like they had no physical presence, they were just fodder to mow down that didn't respond to getting hit, and all they could do was run straight at you and die. I'm noticing the enemies with projectile attacks seem more likely to keep their distance and dodge.

The Crissaegrim, Shield Rod and Soul Steal spell all completely break what's an already easy game.

Since I have barely played L4D2 in the past I've decided to play some more recently.

 

Although I still stand by what I've said in the past regarding the playerbase of MP games nowadays, it's still real fun. Far, far more enjoyable than the cancer I've used to run into almost every single day in other games (probably because there's not hundreds of thousands of players around anymore to ruin the experience for others), and it's quite stress-free too even if you happen to run into useless teammates, nothing to lose here. It's also the second to last Valve title to not feature lootboxes and other types of micro-transaction madness, all the better, those titles get only a nail in the coffin from me.

 

Didn't realize they'd reused the sky from Ravenholm in some campaigns until now. Ah yes, the atmosphere in this whole campaign is so gripping. Thick, cold, mesmerizing and soothing. I wish they wouldn't have stopped at The Sacrifice (if memory doesn't fail me that was the last Add-On they've made before ceasing development on future L4D content) and made more.

I agree, but if someone's having issues with the inverted castle it might help them out. I was probably half-way through the inverted castle before I even found out about the Crissaegrim, and after using them for a while I ended up forcing myself to use something else most of the time. They really do make the game just way too easy; and I never found it to be that difficult to begin with. But it's still a great game, and you have to admit, being completely overpowered is always kind of fun.

Sometimes being completely overpowered is fun, but the majority of the time I prefer being challenged.

Just started playing the fan translated PS1 port of Policenauts on a emulator and it's really good. I really like the story and the soundtrack so far. The art style and animated cutscenes are pretty nice to look at too. I also found out that this is where the well known Konami logo intro jingle from Metal Gear Solid (which I just recently finished) came from. It's used in the opening theme of this game and the save screen, I mean just listen. It's so good:

Wait, Wings of Liberty is now free? I didn't know that it was until now. I still have the physical copy of it from 8 years ago just lying around somewhere on the shelves.

I didn't find most of the starcraft campaigns to be that difficult, though the later ones were pretty tricky. The last few missions of Brood War Zerg are pretty brutal if you aren't well versed in Starcraft though.

Yes, it became free about a year ago. (and it still is)

 

And for those who had already bought Wings of Liberty before it got free, they had a limited time offer to obtain Heart of the Swarm for free. Though that offer has ended now.

Actually I wasn't finding it difficult. Its just that almost all missions (that I played) were pretty much just amass a 200 supply army and steamroll the AI. Couple that with horrible pathfinding, manually order workers for minerals/gas and 12-unit selection. I just wasn't enjoying so i gave up. 

 

I had lot of fun with SC2 tho. Much better mission design and no annoying mechanics (aka 12-unit selection).

Also I play the first Cossacks, Heroes Of Might And Magic III, Tiberian Sun, Civilisation III and Diablo.

Cossacks is one of the favourite strategy games of my childhood (I really loved it when I was a child).

Been playing Dragon Quest XI, a coworker's recommendation.  I've never played a Dragon Quest game and was in the mood for a classic JRPG and this certainly grew on me.  It's not perfect but I'm about 40 hours in and still loving it.  I'm even thinking about checking out some of the earlier games but I've got some other games on my DS that I need to finish first (started a game of Oracle of Seasons about three years ago and finally put aside time to finish it recently, now I'm playing Oracle of Ages).
