Soooo got my hands on the Live 14 demo and I actually think it's a lot of fun. Sure, it's merely a slightly better version of Live 10, but Live 10 was a game that I liked.

Sounds like your current custom title may not be misplaced. ;)

Finished The Last of Us not too long ago. I enjoyed it although I'm torn on how it ended, probably because I find the male main character kind of an ass in the end and I get the message they are trying to get across but I wish they went the other direction(so that there is a room for a sequel). Might play it a second time just to get all the collectibles and to see if I could finished the game with just the pistol on hand.

Also playing Ni No Kuni. It's pokemon but with a much more complicated mechanic than pokemon.

I used to be a huge FIFA fan back in the day but I hadn't played any of them for many years, and I gotta say the PC demo for FIFA 2015 was very impressive, I'll probably end up buying the game.
Other than that, recently finished season 1 of The Wolf Among Us, season 2 of the Walking Dead, and now playing Assassin's Creed IV and replaying Metro: Last Light.

Wow, I didn't know that exists, looks like I learned something new today. Anyway, as I said I'm really hyped for Bloodborne. So much I've decided to order those extra DLC for Dark Souls II, supposedly there's supposed to be 3 of e'm. However, rumors have been said that there's more potentially coming. Bloodborne really looks like an awesome game, the player to player encounters (from what I've read somewhere) may be at random- and your visitor can choose between aiding you and... ailing you. I would very much like to see it this way, especially since you can no longer distinguish friendly players from hostile ones (I think).

I was just starting a new game of Dark Souls II a couple of days ago and I must say that I can understand why the developers appear to have removed or altered the dodge-rolls. I see a lot of side stepping and lunging, which is different from the usual variety of rolls (fast, normal, slow) dependent on your equipment load. One feature similar to this I'd like to see a return, is the inventory weight which was used in Demon's Souls (I'll never understand why they got rid of it). After all, the bottomless box serves the purpose of keeping stock.

The player shouldn't be able to carry multiple great swords, great axes, Spears, Lances, rapiers, daggers, staffs, chimes, curatives, and especially slabs of metal alloys at once. If I remember correctly, demon's souls even utilized weight added to the little things, like firebombs, throwing daggers, and even arrows. This presented the player with a need to tactically be prepared before they departed. These latest titles haven't in that same regard. Though because this title's theme appears to have a horror Victorian pitch to it, I could expect to have to face the difficult decision to drop certain items in favor of others. I may be wrong though.

Currently playing Dragon Age 2 whenever time permits, in-preparation for Dragon Age: Inquisition. IMO, Dragon Age 2 is still inferior than its predecessor Dragon Age: Origins. The quests are so cluttered.

I say it's a wait. The whole way it works really feels like a fetch, protect, go here, quest over and over again. You return to the same places but go 1 door deeper in future missions. There are new enemies, but mainly the ones you already encountered just level up with you, so in the previous mission the guys you were 1 shotting with a hand cannon now take 2-3 shots.

The gameplay itself is probably one of the best FPS games I've played. Multiplayer is amazingly fun and even the quests or missions w/e play well...its just the story and progression that gets stale very fast. And the awkward and inconsistent leveling up.

Right. The DA2's gameplay is awesome, Origins was a little too slow for me. However, the first one's story is just too good. I wish I still had time to play these. :(

In defense of DA:O, it was based on older Bioware RPGs, where combat is slow and tactical. DA2 plays more of an action game. And it seems like Inquisition is like that too. And those repetitive caverns. :lame:

I pre-ordered The Witcher 3 (Steam had a 10% sale and they also gave an extra 5% if either one of the previous Witcher games was in the library), and in the meantime I got Shadow Of Mordor which is quite fun, in a Batman Arkham kind of way. Still have to delve more into the gameplay mechanics but it's a pretty badass game so far.

Read about Shadows of Mordor being a rehash of assassin's creed, and a repetitive one.

Looking forward to Alien Isolation as well as 2k next week.

Played Payday 2 and it was absolutely shitty. Still enjoying LoL and Dota 2 anyways. Meanwhile, Saints Row IV's arcade-y feeling drove me out of the game.

It definitely borrows a lot of AC's mechanics, and it can certainly become repetitive. But if anything, it's much closer to the recent Batman games when it comes to gameplay, but it has some really interesting twists and so far it's hooking me much more than either one of those games. With the highest settings it's also quite gorgeous.

Such a shame because it had great potential and I was looking forward to it too, but as expected from an Aliens game, it's apparently pretty flawed:

Waiting until Christmas to get a PS4 (sentimental reasons, mostly) so I've been playing through Skyrim lately. The game can get repetitive, but it's still ridiculously addicting with all of the different quest lines and things to level up. Kind of embarrassing how fast the generic NPC dialogue gets old.

NBA Live 15, NBA 2K15, and WWE 2K15. Also picked up GTA V on PS4 recently, so I expect I'll be back into that in due course.

Thought about purchasing Live 15, but instead bought Destiny. I'm still desperate for Bloodborne, and have been trying to completely finish Dark Souls II (DLC, and other missed content). I recently went back to NBA 2k11, and reloaded a my player save on Hall of Fame, which promptly reminded me why I never play on that difficulty; the cpu shot 66% in the first half, and my team shot 52% with 12 minute quarters. Ultimately I had to score 76 points just so my team could turn the ball over on the last possession. Both teams exceeded 130 points with mine losing by a basket. Final individual stats were 31/47 FG - 3/5 3PT - 16/18 FT - 12 REB - 17 AST, but pointless. I'm also interested in Tom Clancy's The Division, and other currently unreleased titles.

I just decided to buy Live 15, and I gotta say - it's not nearly as bad as some make it out to be. There's a couple quirks here and there, and it obviously hasn't made a jump to #1 yet but it's a great improvement. The "Finals Preview" pitted the Cavs and Thunder against each other, I chose to play as the latter - 80-82 was the final score with Westbrook hitting a three at the buzzer. An overall balanced experience, but nothing was really phenomenal. I did enjoy the commentary though. The game recap at half time and post time was interesting. So now I'm going to start the rising star game mode and see how that goes . . . I also decided to get XCOM Enemy Within, because I had the original Enemy Unknown and completed it twice with all of the DLC.

EDIT: I Neglected to install the update for Live 15, and so I decided to finally install it but I discover it pauses at 26%. EDIT2: It finished, and I resumed playing.

I liked flying in bf2, but I was pretty horrible at it.

On PC, the key trick to fly efficiently is to bind a key (say Space bar) to pitch up. And even better if you bind something else like Q to pitch down so you can make loops easily.

As I usually play on "hardcore" servers without a minimap you should also wait for really good shot in dogfights if you want to really sneak up on someone (I use only cannon in dogfights).
And I carry Air-to-Surface missiles (if both hits it's usually kill even on tanks), so a good laser marker in team is great plus for me.

Five years late to the party, but I picked up Dragon Age Origins Complete Edition the other day. After clocking far too many hours on Skyrim, then not finishing due to glitches, repetitiveness and a dead feeling game world, this game is refreshing. Only a few hours in, but I love the characters and their banter between one another. Looking forward topplaying inquisition when I get a PS4

Looking forward to it! Origins is pretty dated visually (looks like a ps2 game on my 360) but it nonetheless kept me up past midnight. I've heard DA 2 sucks - should I skip it or is it important to the story?

I've seen from everywhere that it's a skip. Not sure but I think Lean played and wasn't impressed.
