Well, I started dead Space yesterday and I'm fucking loving it. It doesn't reinvent the Survival Horror Genre, but it does do everything perfectly. It has a coherent story, gameplay that doesn't depend on simply giving you way too little ammo (instead you have to use your ammo smartly to take off the limbs of monsters to kill them as fast as possible), a great HUD (it's non  existent, everything is done through in-game holograms), awesome sound and very nice graphics. Controls at leats on the PC are pretty smooth and the game has had me freaked out a few moments when I was just beset on all sides by crazy necromorphs trying to eat my legs off.
I'd just suggest any experienced gamer to play it on hard level, because even on hard it isn't the most challenging game ever. It feels more like what medium should have been...

Also if you have problems with babies turning into tentacled acid spitting monsters, don't play this game. Otherwise I really recommend it...

I don't play games much anymore. After a long withdrawal, I'm enjoying the freedom.

I generally don't talk much about games on FF, that's all.

If I do have time to play a game, I don't have time left to write shit about it.

Something like Rick ;)

Played War with the Walrus for awhile but he started later and now he got twice my level soon so not much activity there from my part. Work and doing other things takes up my time. :-/
Could maybe post about some of that instead but it's not like many here can give me any nice input back. ;)

oh well...

:( Its true! I dont have the time for games in between working and studying, usually my spare hours are spent rolled into a ball, drinking alcohol and sobbing.

But on that note, have I not spotted you working at a local food-dealership lately soupie? I thought it was you but I was in a rush so i didn't stop and say hi. Plus you looked intensely focused on what you were doing.

Depends if you mean the Norwood Foodland on The Parade. :p

Should've said hello anyway, I'm only focused on what I'm doing to make the time pass quicker. :)

Plus we have the cheapest prices in Adelaide!  Or something.
