    I played a demo of this game long time ago and was trying to remember the name of it for years after. Finally found it a few days ago.

    I made some screenshots. Although ME3 doesn't want to take screenshots in cutscenes so they were really shitty. But IMGUR is being shitty so.

    Tried Citadel DLC. Wow what a total disconnect. I liked the Grunt talk I guess but you know, everyone is dying and I'm supposed to relax in a stupid apartment and laugh? Ehm. Yeah no? And they threw in a casino and an arcade. OH WOW YOU SHOULDNT HAVE. YOU ARE RETARDED BIOWARE.

    Well atleast it was challenging at points. Although in most cases that challenge came from shitty design. Like telling you to repeatedly go to the EXTRACTION ZONE LIKE NAO SHEPARD. W-where is the extraction zone again? And Wrex dying repeatedly. Um. Wrex has like 1600 hp, five times as much as Liara and he's down more often than she is. What's up with that. And why Wrex? It doesn't make any fucking sense. He sat out two games because apparently a merc had a secret life as a chief, SO NO I DON'T WANT A FROG IN MY PARTY AGAIN. I thought I could get Zaeed and Kasumi and Jack etc in my clone battle - but fuck that, that would have actually been fun. Instead they're left for arena battles. Boring.

    All throughout the DLC I was waiting to get the outfit clone Shepard has because it looks fucking sweet. But instead all I get is Cerberus outfits worn by Kai Leng and Phantoms if I beat the arena. 3 outfits with different stats but the same look. DUDE. FUCK CERBERUS AND FUCK THE OUTFITS. I WANT THE CAMO OUTFIT.

    And I thought Kai Lengs infinite cutscene invulnerability was retarded. Then I got to the final clone fight. WHAT. THE. FUCK.

    I also installed MEHEM, and it seems promising. Haven't gotten to ending this time around yet. Essentially all it does is delete say fuck you to the starchild and makes the ending oh, infinitely better. Can't fuck with lead writer's retarded shit BioWare? Even when everyone says it's fucking retarded as fuck? Does Mac Walters really have that accommodating an asshole?

    So after my shameful failure in Blood Omen 1, I started the sequel, Soul Reaver 1. I'm only at the beginning, but holy shit, this has even better atmosphere than its predecessor. And that music... And that intro.

    Show Spoiler
    Basicly you are a lieutenant of the vampire Kain (the protagonis of the first game), and you evolve (get bone wings) earlier than you master. Kain ripps down your wings in his jealusy, and throws you into the abbys where you are tormented for a thousand years. Pretty good reason for vengance. :D


    Thankfully the gameplay seems better and the controls look OK.

    You are a faggot for dropping Blood Omen 1.

    However, here's a piece of legit advice: just remember not to play Defiance once you finish Soul Reaver 2. I mean it. You are better off watching all its cinematics on youtube. I refused to listen to people who told me the same thing and I regretted that pretty much all the time I played.

    To quote myself from 80 pages ago:

    Yeah I regret it a little that I didn't man up and finish it, but my patience ran dry in the middle. I would continue now, but I deleted my saves and I can't bother starting it from the beginning, and I've already watched it on youtube.

    Just finished my first playthrough of Bloodlines as a Malkavian. Excellent stuff - even the combat-heavy portions later on didn't bother me so much since I maxed out Obfuscate early on, except that Hotel Hallowbrook mission - fuck that noise. I have mixed feelings about Arcanum and TOEE bores me to death, but this game was p gud. Pretty satisfying ending siding with the anarchs, even though the rest of the game after Hollywood was kinda shit. I cut it some slack since I'm a huge FPP/vampirefag.

    Despite massive protests in the Shitbox, I decided to put everything else aside gaming wise and try Dark Souls (on PC).
    Bradylama was right: it's awesome...well once you download the resolution fix. Fuck you, haters!

    Yeah you should have listened to me. The only highlight i can think off is some bossfights, particulary Kain vs Raziel showdown. I hated the fact that they recycled the OST of previous games, but maybe it was for the best, considering they totally raped the spectral realm atmosphere by adding some crying repetitive voices and ditching this kind of soundtrack : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NOPKYv1auFQ&list=PLECD66691B2F17260
    (it's a shame the spectral realm soundtrack was not released as OST, since some spectral realm versions are better than the material realm versions, would love to see Soul Reaver 2 spectral realm OST)

    Been replaying the Megaman X games, I play before playing a strategy or slow-paced game so I don't get restless.

    Just beat Megaman X4, playing as Zero.
    I beat it.
    I fucking beat it.
    I BEAT SIGMA!
    FUCK YEAH!
    SMASHED BALDY, FLAT!
    It took me two hours and like 30 attempts, but I finally beat Sigma!
    Attacks, attacks from EVERYWHERE!
    X has armor and ranged attacks to cope with that shit, with Zero I have just a double jump, air dash and prayer.

    I beat Sigma. Destroyed Baldy.
    Stuffed his scythe and his doomerangs on his shiny metal ass.
    Slashed him into pieces.
    Slashed his two heads into pieces.
    It was positively heart-beating awesome as I rocked to EPIC final boss song.
    Still tired, my hands hurt.

    I WON.
    FUCK SIGMA.
    MAVERICK HUNTERS FOREVER.

    Started playing Scratches.

    Good atmosphere, but quite frankly, all those voxel hunts are missing me off like fuck, especially when they are like 'there are 1000 derelict cans strewn around the manor, find the one that is plot-criticool!!!!!' or 'there are 3 hueg piles of newspapers in one place, but the only one you can pick up to put under a door is in another place, hidden under a bucket!!!!'

    Yeah, that intro I could watch by itself, over and over. Better storytelling in that clip alone than the most of the story focused games the media like to dick ride these days.

    What is this heathen Shitbox you speak of? Sounds like a hive of scum and villainy.

    Anyway, tried to see if I wanted to finish Divine Cybermancy, but I just couldn't take the respawning enemies anymore. For some people the respawning might not be an issue, and they may even think it a good idea to keep you on your toe and managing your resources, but the game doesn't offer enough interest in other areas to put up with it anymore. I can get a similar, superior experience replaying Deus Ex or STALKER. There are a lot of skills and stats and whatnot, and I like that, but the level and scenario design doesn't make good use of them.

    On the bright side, Hexen. Fookin' metal as it's always been. Raven was on some rarefied air shit back in the day.
