Nope, game just freezes up completely and then I have to go in and manually kill the process in order to recover the machine. Odds are it's a driver or hardware issue rather than anything wrong with Steam.

That... yeah I have no idea what's going on.

Stop fueling your machine with beer, it's getting drunk, yo?

Classic Week, a mod campaign for Dragon Age Origins.

It's funny. But balls hard if you aren't actively exploiting the broken mechanics of the game.

Shenmue - emulated, of course - my Dreamcast packed it in years ago, as they were wont to do. What an awesome game this is.

Played some Fallout: New Vegas this morning. Rounding up some quests and killing NCR if I encounter them. Ok, I'll admit, I was looking for trouble in the first place Razz

Finished Human Revolution. I'd have to say, after an extremely promising start, the game kind of tailed off towards the end. I blame the extremely generous XP system - by about half way through the game you were pretty much unstoppable even on the hardest difficulty and could sneak into or hack everything with consumate ease. Too easy.

Playing through Dead Space now. I'm a massive fan of survival horror, and this is delivering in spades. Great stuff.

I actually liked Human Revolution all the way through. Yeah I was kinda miffed that the planned Montreal hub wasn't included, the Tyrants were tacked on bullshit, but I actually liked how near the end you were basically becoming exactly what the augmentation tech was promised to provide: superhuman ability. In the end I started to see just what exactly the anticog's deal was. Actually, come to think of it, I liked Human Revolution more than the original.

I'm on my 3rd play through of Skyrim, just finished Arkham City for the 2nd time and I can't seem to stop playing Battlefield 3 online.

Recently finished Dragon Age: Origins and all of the DLC. I loved the gameplay, but I have to admit that I think it was the single most linear RPG I've played in ~10 years... and this is coming from someone who forced himself to finish Final Fantasy XIII.

All Bioware games are to some extent linear in their story progression, even if you're allowed some wiggle room as to where you actually want to go and what to do when you get there. But DA more linear than FF? Really?

I can see where you're coming from, but I think the system in the first game that forced you to choose between different augs for each slot ended up with a more balanced game - you could be great at some tactics, but not suited for others, as opposed to awesome at everything.

Just finished Dead Space - slightly miffed to discover that you can't continue your game into the next difficulty, like in other games in the genre. Now embarking on a single-gun run with my trusty Plasma Cutter in Impossible mode.

Not that it hasn't always been so straight-forward, but the (painful?) linearity of the gameplay in FF games people see nowadays is pretty recent. You can definitely fuck around in and side-quest the shit out of 7 and 9, and other ones like 6 or 8 if I remember weren't so strict with the number of fucking steps you can take before you hit another cut scene.

I did like 13 though. It would have been perfect had they really mixed the old with the new instead of claiming they did just to get fans like me to buy their new shit. Or maybe that was 12, I'm not even sure anymore.

I found myself wanting the old, so I've been playing a FF6 rom. It really helps that I got a USB SNES controller as a secret santa gift a few years ago.

I played about it about half way through. I felt really let down by it - not a patch on the original.

It's probably not as bad as you think. It could be the hype, which always just kills everything.

Yeah agree with Bloo. I've played the multiplayer a few times and the game really pushes you to be innovative in tactics; you can never really play a game twice. Love the challenge. Have to say in terms of single-player story though, it was not as gripping as the first.
