Audiosurf 2 is decent for an early access game. Pretty insane compared to the 1st game, with mods and things like audiosprint.

Also, Goat Simulator patch! Adds a whole new level and all kinds of crazy shit like water physics, Minecraft-style goat, cycling, longboarding, and a freakin' rollercoaster.

Definitely gonna grab the first Pinball Arcade table pack before the Steam sale is over. I've been stubborn because of their prices up to this point, even though I'd get a lot of gameplay out of one pack.

You mean you're going to wait for it to come on flash or daily sale right?

They usually bring back the most popular daily + flash sales on the last day, but I don't think they get cheaper.
We'll see, Valve may try to fuck my wallet even harder this year

Payday 2, really fun with friends after a 10 hour warm up phase (not that long for a multiplayer game). But htey wave DLC in front of you all the time, it pisses me off. Still better than a completely Free to Play though.

Also Miasmata, They Breathe, Jet Set Radio, Battleblock Theatre, Resident Evil Revelations, South Park: Stick of Truth

All great games! Crazy. It's been an unproductive 2-3 weeks.

And then holy shit this blog

bought me a new pc, 3.3 ghz haswell 15 quad core, 8 gig ram, other shit...but still saving for a gpu, gonna grab a gtx 760 or maybe a 770
in the mean time, the onboard graphics are aight for cs go and usf4 so its ok for a couple weeks.

gave my old pc to my missus kid, must have had about 7 games online so far and already he beating me :explainittomelikeimfive: hes Grayskull, i'm MENDO
Image

btw the fps goes down when i bring up the scoreboard, i would turn the gfx down more if it ran a 37 lol normally at around 50fps which is good enough for the mean time

some chorus dude came round and fixed my internet somehow to make it better, getting 19 down 6 up now much better. on one server i had 25 ping and Grayson had 32 ping over the same connection pretty nice :D

Anyone run through P.T. on PS4 yet?

After 3 hours I HAD to look at a walkthrough, but good on the cunts that actually figured it all out.

Good on Kojima the tricky bugger.

Just watched a playthrough the other day, didn't really feel like I was missing out by not playing it, was super tense/ scary anyway!
Looks awesome, but I don't 100% trust any new Silent Hill so let's see how it turns out.

P.T was amazing, played in the dark with headphones and shat myself a couple times.

Playing Valiant Hearts at the moment, so good... This will make my Top 5 of 2014 for sure.

Yessss just installed SteamOS beta on an old compy in the lounge. FUCK YES.
Some games aren't optimised well for streaming (have my good compy in my room running them), eg Resident Evil 4 runs at like 1/4 speed, but Dishonoured runs great.. And not suited to twitch based games, eg Super Meat Boy, because of occasional lag, but still super stoked!! Finally!
Living room couch gaming on a library of 500 + games with no need to ever drop all of them because the 'next gen' console is out.

Sounds like I should do this.
Except still sorta want to get a console too for gaming with mates and fucking console exclusives.

Playing the fuck out of nosgoth (beta). It's great but frustrating, because so reliant on a team that doesn't suck balls.

Well, you can just plug any computer into your tv and run Steam and it will stream etc anyway, but with the OS I only have a controller plugged in and it boots straight to Steam big picture mode, so it has that console feel (though would be nice if it booted faster, still beta I guess). If you have a USB stick and a computer you're happy to format though, the installation is easy as: http://store.steampowered.com/steamos/buildyourown

But re. gaming with mates, that's what this setup is for! These are what we've been playing lately:

Nidhogg
Hidden in Plain Sight (the race game holy shit too good)
Towerfall
Screencheat is fun too
& Gang Beasts is next on the list to try

Get some drinks and 360 controllers and you'll be up all night with those for sure.

Just got an alpha access key for the weekend beta of EVOLVE. pretty stoked to jam some, even though I've got more important things I should probably be doing >.>

Destiny becomes such a bore real quickly. This month is going to be great new AC, Far Cry.

Oh yeah, and based on Aerozol's recommendation :P I grabbed Binding of Isaac since it was a free game on PS+ this month.

Good timing because
BOI REBIRTH!!!

All fucking day!
Beat Satan and Isaac! But I'm away for a week so that'll be a good breather and I'll be super keen to play again. I'm liking it heaps so far - the items are more fun and more OP, but the fights are harder and the pace is faster imo. More fun and more frustration, sweet!!
Much nicer than the flash based original Snuff, but the og version is exactly the same gameplay wise, not as smooth or as nice looking, but essentially that's it.

Played a little bit of my flatmates copy of Destiny, really didn't hook me. But its sales figures really show that blandness works if you're casting the audience net wide eh? I honestly just love the aesthetic and feel of Bungie stuff and combat etc, but some of the load times, difficulty in finding a party, and kind of boring missions are a bit of a shame. And 'story' lolol what? Oh well.

Yeah Rebirth is the one I got, xplay with Vita so will jam on that most likely.

Like Destiny is great, but my biggest gripe is that they've artificially manipulated the longevity of it by making the drops so weak and forcing this incessant grind.

ive just been playing far cry 3, great game, but im absolutely stuck on the knife fight with hoyt, its not even so much that its hard, its more that each time you fail you have to wait for the stupid fucking game to load, then sit thru hoyts thick saffie accented spiel before you get to fuck up the timing of the button presses again, super frustrating, and if you get sick of it and ragequit, like i just did, you have to sit thru the whole poker game again too when you turn it back on.
it really upsets me seeing sam get killed, i liked that guy.

one nutella topping on this shit sandwich is that i found this when looking for tips/cheats

I have been trying to get through this Knife fight wilh Hoyt for the past 3 hours and still no luck. I have done erveything that has been stated on the forum and still unable to stab him. I am 67years old and I will be dead by the time I get past this part of the story. I really liked the game until this point (9.5) and now I will rate it as -10. Please correct this part of the game, and I not I will no longer buy one of your games. Ghost Recon Future Solider was a flop as far as I was concenered, but this is a bunch of BS.


pretty much sums up how i feel
