    Carrying this over from CS...because I miss that place -

    Here's what I've been playing:
    [​IMG]

    I think this one gets an unwarranted bad rap. Yes, the controls are clunky, and the voice acting abysmal, but it really does serve up creepy atmospheric horror. I missed that golden era of horror video games (Silent Hill, RE) so this is my first exposure to the genre. The reviewers seem plagued by nostalgia.

    I'm on Chapter 6 out of 16 so will post an update once finished.

    Playing Alien Isolation next.

    I like Evil Within it emphasizes on a little bit of what Metal Gear Solid was like. This isn't just a kill things and move on if something gets you you may be done.

    In regards to Alien Isolation great graphics and I liked it. It can be annoying having to revisit a lot of places. It is similar to Evil Within in the sense if something gets you you are dead.

    In regards to what I am currently playing as Fallout 4 is coming soon got to finish:

    Back then I lost 2 prospective clients because of Fallout NV... I'm a fanboy for a ruined civilization, post-apocalyptic themed stuffs. :(

    I love post apocalyptic sheit as well.
    Pre ordered fallout 4 of course and also pre ordered the new rock band. Should be home on Tuesday. But I have a problem... I have a huge PS4, PS3, PS Vita, PC backlog and...

    CANNOT FREAKING STOP PLAYING ROCKET LEAGUE!!!!!!

    Talk about addictive!!! "Just one more game!!" And after three hours, it's two am, have to wake up at 6, rinse, repeat! Hopefully I'll steer clear when the new games arrive... Maybe...

    I have been playing Total War: Shogun 2 with mods(mods at twcenter). My favorite strategy game was Total War: Rome from 2004. Shogun 2 with mods is almost as good.

    "Ugh, that match sucked, can't go out on a loss like that"

    "Wow, that was awesome! Can't quit while i'm winning!"

    I may have finally kicked my 10-year WoW habit. I log in to the character selection screen and just stare at it for a bit, then log off. No desire to actually play, at all. I'm cured?!? But wtf am I going to do with all this extra time?

    Got Rock Band 4 yesterday... wow... forgot how to play this thing! LOL
    Same feeling as before.
    Different guitar mechanics in the Solos.
    No real depth in Character creation.
    You cannot download ALL of your previously bought tracks easily... :(

    Sound is awesome as always!

    As a fellow wow player I found myself with so much extra time I really started playing some other games I had missed such as Dark Souls, GTA V, Witcher 3

    RE: Rocket League - I was super hooked for a while. Managed to kick it when a family member stayed at our place for a week and I didn't get to play because my computer is in the guest room. Hopefully I won't go back...

    Received Rock Band 4 (PS4) and... WTF?!?! NO ONLINE MODES?!?! I didn't know this! Ugh!!
    Oh well... it seems they will implement it in the future. In the meantime, playing the "story"/"tour" mode. Setlist is alright. It's like 60+ songs but I don't really like most of them. Thank God for "compatibility" (i.e. you can download your previous tracks). Guitar solos are actually kind of fun now but I feel there's something missing...

    As of now... C+

    Finished Evil Within tonight. Under-rated game, I'll be playing the DLC as well.

    Beautiful art style in Apotheon. Fun too, but overall just decent. It was around 10 hours long. Unless you particularly enjoy art, greek mythology, or platformers, I do not recommend.
