I didn't like that much Sonic Rush, I sold it after I completed the Sonic part of it.

A game that had a good feeling at first but left a bad taste in my mouth.

Resident evil 4 - Wii Edition
Almost done with Chapter 4. This game really knows how to entertain me. While there isn't much in the way of originality, everything from the controls to the atmosphere and game play just clicks. The only thing that bothers me in the slightest are the British merchants which for some unknown reason can stand around and sell weapons everywhere from the sewers to the Castle...
Oh and the puzzles are corny and stupid and doesn't fit in at all, but that's nothing new considering this franchise's past.

You ought to download the Sega Rally Demo. Will not feel as fast, but it's arcade perfection.

I'm at the end of Day 5 of Tex Murphy Under a Killing Moon. As much as I like stories where evil cults plan to kill everyone and rule the world I think this one was just one too many.
I've also had the hardest time playing this game. I never managed to set the controls right so I've been staggering around and at times I had to rely on a walkthrough to just get through sections with timed sequences in order to progress into some other area where the controls didn't totally ruin the experience.

There's something wrong here, because this is far too addictive. That said, I've only cleared eight stages on the easiest difficulty level so far. I got an "A" first time on Y.M.C.A., though .

Crysis
What a difference a graphics driver update makes (or at least appears to). This game has gone from running smoothly and then suddenly grinding to a halt to running reasonably for what appears to be all of the time. I'm not about to start counting my chickens, but hopefully being able to play it for more than five minutes is here to stay.

That problem, of course, has limited how far I've been able to get in this. I'm currently leaving the excavation site, so I'm still fairly near to the beginning. Oh well.

I' m playing Next Life and i'm on Day 3. A lot of walking in this game and very hard to find hotspots. Interesting story though...

Taking a look at this oldie called Port Royale 2 but I suck at it. Can't make money at all, can't even finish the trading/building tutorials, I think this game sucks.

Might replay Silent Hill 3.
I'm in need of that atmosphere, and I have some unfortunate doubts regarding SHV's appearance on the PC.

First of all, as a newbie to this forum, I would like to greet all fellow adventure gamers!

I just finished Nibiru yesterday. Nothing special really, but considering the 5 bucks I paid for it, I can`t really complain.

Since I had some catching up to do on classics, I started with the longest journey (yeah, didn't play it until now - shame on me). And I have to say, the atmosphere in this game is amazing. Although I`m not really far, yet.

On the DS I`m playing Hotel Dusk at the moment. Great style, but I'm kinda getting annoyed of it. I'm in Chapter 4 with this Summers guy, and I can't make sense of what this game wants me to do with this autographs...

I'm almost done with Bioshock on the 360 and it's astoundingly good. I love it. The setting, the context, the gameplay, atmosphere... I'm going to finish it first before making any final statement, but this might well be my new favourite game, and the last time that spot changed was after playing Grim Fandango in 1998. That's saying something.

Just got 'Project Zero' for a tenner.
Quite enjoying it, I'd prefer more character interaction, though.

I woulda sold my copy for cheaper than that!

Is it worth playing? I've got all three but haven't played any of them yet.

I’m replaying TLJ. Although I’ve replayed the video clips and listened to the music now and then, this is the first time I will have replayed an entire game from start to finish. I’m a lot smarter with the puzzles this time around. And although the element of surprise is gone, I still marvel at how rich this game is, especially compared to many newer games.

Currently taking on The Orange box on my X360. I just acquired the gravity gun. So far I don't understand much of the story. I've played through the original Half-life and its first expansion pack, but I still don't understand what I'm up against. Who are the "benefactors" and why is the civil guard attacking me? Have I missed/forgotten something in the last game or is this something that will be revealed later in the game? In that case don't spoil please.

On a more technical matter the graphics hasn't aged much apart from the face crabs and the people wearing them. The graphics looks great and the human character models make an impressive job of convincing me it's people and not polygons. The dialogue rocks! The physics deliver. Nuff said.

However, it's painfully obvious that the controls aren't made for the 360 controller. This is a game that's better played with a mouse and keyboard. Halo 3 and Gears of War felt much more natural with the 360 controller than this game does.

*edit*
Made it through Ravenholm and on my way through the highway chapter. The story so far is on par with Gears of War. I don't understand what I'm fighting or why. The monsters and soldiers attack both me and each others. I'm assuming the monsters are the Combine and the soldiers the civil guard, but then they should be allies!?

To piece together this sorry excuse of a story I went and read this since it's obvious to me by now that I've missed something or the story got lost somewhere around alpha and gold.

Where the hell is all that information!? I've played Half-Life, Opposing forces and more than half of Half-Life 2 and I can't piece together all that the linked site contains.

It's creepy, though sometimes repetitive (you travel through the same locations for the most part) - but the storyline is interesting enough to keep you going.

I'm at Day 5 of Darkness Within and it's so perfectly, wonderfully creepy just the way I like it.
Some really hard puzzles though, but I'm playing this mostly for the atmosphere so I just consult the walkthrough if I get stuck longer than I like.
