Upgraded the old rig yesterday from Celeron 2.8ghz, 2gb Ddr2 and a Gtx220 1gb to Core I3, 8gb DDR3 and Gt760 2gb.

Had a jam on Cities:Skylines. Started a new Fallout NV game and started downloading first 3 FarCry games.

The old rig could play the first FarCry maxed out (what is it 10 years old now?) But looking forward to jamming on 2 and 3...which I bought off steam for $7.49!

Pretty much addicted to bf3 atm. Good fun.

Apparently the new Battlefield Hardline is really good.

"Run your crew as detective Nick Mendoza in an episodic crime drama single player campaign or as cops and criminals in rapid Battlefield multi-player. You will be on one side of the thin blue line or the other. Assume control using new tactics to gather intelligence, obtain warrants and takedown with non-lethal force to effectuate the arrests. Take the cash in a new battlefield playground. New maps and gadgets alter the way you play the game. Utilize grappling hooks and zip-lines to scale city buildings and fly across the city with the cheddar. No matter the strategy, teamwork is key to winning the turf war. Sate your need for speed in new action-packed modes. Hop in exotic muscle cars, sleek crotch rockets or even give your whole crew a lift in transports or armored trucks."

Fucking Spelunky Daily Challenge erry day
I think it may actually be the best game ever

Also been playing Olli Olli which also has a 'daily grind' because playing something for just 10 minutes every day is a great and doesn't ever feel like work

^ did you play Hotline Miami 1?

Apparently the difficulty picks up where that left off, which was pretty punishing, but definitely doable if you'd played through it all

Dark souls 2 releasing a GOTY type edition, with better graphics and some tweaks, which is cool, but also a bit bs that it's not a free patch if you bought the game.
Bought the season pass for evolve, even though $35 for dlc is bullshit as well, but can't really do anything about it.

Mainly been playing Turbo Dismount lately, great fun:

Also tried the Road Redemption early access. Does pretty well to bring back the spirit of Road Rash, but with far more brutal weapons.

^ yeeeaaahhh that game's SO GOOD

Only ever played locally though, never single player or online. Same-screen with drinks is where that game is at!!
Only annoying thing is that the 'throw your sword and just keep running/ jumping them' strategy is the best strategy, unless there's a good counter that we never found

I've been trying to play multiplayer but have heard that there's a lot of complaints about that feature not really working. I read the creator thinks it's meant for samescreen gaming.

I don't know about how successful that technique would be once you know what to expect! the little move variations are subtle but can be useful. I like playing dead near a sword and cartwheeling up and lunging it's pretty efficient!

Once you pick up momentum it's really hard for someone to counter your jump or jump and kick down combination at the right time, even when you know it's coming. And then you can clear screens in no time. Especially since you run faster without a sword.

Apparently online latency just isn't quick enough for the game, personally I think he should have stuck to his guns and just not put online in, but the internet had the biggest cry and knew best, as always. Again, haven't tried it though, could be better than I've heard? Have you been getting destroyed by l33t people who only play that game, forver, or do you have some online matches that feel good?

Watched videos of people playing, looked cool.
Picked up a second controller and Diablo 3 so I can couch coop with the girlfriend, it's pretty good.

^this. only just killed the first big monster and done 1-2 sidequests, but it feels good. True to the witcher style of making you feel like you need to be careful how you use your skill points, but a lot of streamlining, and the open world feels pretty good so far
