Still playing Skyrim, back to playing Fallout: New Vegas, still playing X3 when I need to relax... and occasionally when I just need to blow things up. Nothing says boom like hundreds upon hundreds of heavy missiles.

Ya, if I'm not careful, I'll load One and Two, have all three running, plus some of the mods (got about a thousand of them for all three versions) - I'll be invisible for quite a while...

Batman Arkham city and I have to say its one of the best games ever made Even better than Arkham Asylum,the DX11 graphics are amazingly detailed if not flawed by the constant load stutters,I've been tempted to play it on DX9 just for the smoothness but DX11 is just too purdy a DX 10 option would have been better.

I don't like beat em ups but this is different,I decided to play it first run on hard which is quite a challenge and I'm simultaneously regretting and enjoying in equal measure.

I'd forgotten what it was like to be frustrated with a game as most of the games I play on you can think your way through like mass effect and fallout with this you just have to think on your feet and have the reactions of a gazelle.

Yeah I love that game! It's one of those games that just makes you feel like a God, like God of War type thing. Just roaming the streets knockin' the sh*t outta folk

The open world is nice too, lots of freedom. I find some of the side quests tricky to locate and a couple confused the hell outta me lol.
And the combat is second to none.

I've had an all over the place day off, first thing this morning I fired up Fallout 3.
Around noon I continued with Napoleon Total war campaign, then a couple of hours later I had a couple of online matches on BF3 then MW3, then played some MW3 survival, then finished a couple more levels on Portal 2 which lead me into continuing my game of Half Life 2 and then finally I played Minecraft for an hour lol

Just could not decide what I wanted to play

Never heard of it until your link, played the demo.
Very unimpressed, far too retro for my liking. It kind of reminded me of Limbo but not near as good.

Although I am soooo toying with the idea of grabbing "Dear Esther" , it sounds so terrible but so intriguing.

Ugh finished Batmah Arkham city kind of,its broken. I'v finished the main story but missed a few side missions I thought it was because you get locked out a few missions from the end as that's when they stopped working but no they are dead,I give up.

Next...

Which quests are you finding broken?
I have quite a few of the side missions to complete yet having put the game down for a while, but when I pick it up I could check the quests and see if they work for me.

The watcher in the wings isn't where he's supposed to be on the third sighting,I've found him twice once near the town hall and once on that big wheel

http://www.gamesradar.com/batman-ark...mission-guide/



I've flown around forever tryna get oracle to phone me about the identity theft too and nothing,the third victim isn't there and shouldn't be until oracle phones you.

It could be I've not done something to unlock those missions,I haven't found every riddler trophy "85%" and I haven't unlocked every tyger security console.

I just uninstalled it in a fit of rage I haven't deleted my save game though so I may return to it but I've had Cryis 2 sitting on my shelf since christmas so I've installed that and I'm tryna get the dx11 texture pack and tessellation to work,I started installing it at 2.00pm its now 5.30pm and I still haven't seen what the game looks like yet

I can't remember how many times I saw him, I think 2 as well.
I do remember having some troubles with some of them and then later they worked ok.

I'll look over the weekend.

As for Crysis 2, why so long to install? I'm almost certain I installed.... oh wait, I did it through steam and just left it running over night.
Runs like a dream maxed out for me, the occasional slow down but very rare and usually while going into cloak mode with all kinds of explosions and gun fights going on, but I get a steady 40+ fps, dips to 30 and highs of 60.

I just loved the increased speed of the nano suit functions, stealth sniping is soooo much fun. It's just
Cloaked.
Uncloakshootcloak.
Done

The tessellation pack is 600mb download and the high res texture pack is 1.7gb file on my 6meg broadband The auto update didn't work there's something wrong with the website,then when I installed it the auto update though I hadn't and kept tryna install it again screwing up the game from starting,there's also the major problem of the game wanting to constantly run at 24fps on my HDTV which is documented problem which still hasn't been fixed the only way around it is to restart the game.

I can get a constant 60+ frames with everything set to ultra,high resolution texture pack installed and the DX11 tessellation pack installed patch 1.9 so far on the first couple of missions,aa set to X16,if I set it to 32msaa it slowsdown to 55fps regularly so I don't use it and it doesn't really make much difference in visual quality.

I have noticed a massive slowdown though which is repeatable,when I duck and the NPC's shoot the ground in front of me splashing up dirt,smoke and particles it slows down to 30fps.

It reminiscent of the 50% vsync slowdowns of crysis when the framerate dips below the refresh rate but I don't think it's that as it only happens at that time,I'll have to look into it.

The game is fun though and looks awesome,damn content censors though I so miss dismemberment and mutilation of corpse ala half life and soldier of fortune 2,with explosions and weapons,all these fancy rag doll physics are over rated. When I set off a grenade next to a bad guys face I want a cloud of red mist and bits all over the place not an indestructible mannequin flying around.

Never did me any harm seeing those things,apart from the afore mentioned cravings and blood lust.
