its going to be a joy to replay!
Yeah, the dialogue is particularly good too. Feels like there's some very real consequences.

The Experiment-I thought I'd give it another try, but besides the game controls (cameras) being a pain in the butt to use, the stuff you have to read is so over my head. I don't mind reading stuff, but a lot of the documents are very scientific and I don't know what I'm reading. I haven't given up on this game, but it's quite a chore.

Alan Wake

Finally started. Not much to say other than that I'm liking it so far; and very good atmosphere.

On the Wii, Super Mario Galaxy... I previously played it most of the way through and then stopped. Recently I've decided to go back and replay it, so I can finish the game before starting on SMG 2! I just finished the Terrace (although there are still some stars I'm missing), and I'm starting on the Kitchen.

On the PC, Sacred... I am getting ready to escort the guy and his bodyguard from the second town to the third town. Upon my first play, the skill/spell/combo system is diabolically confusing. Fortunately, there are more quests, more plot points, and more characters than in Diablo and most of its spin-offs, and the gameplay is less focused on mindless hack-n-slash, and more on tactics, than Diablo and most of its offshoots. This makes things very difficult, as I'm not a tactically-minded person. It remains to be seen whether I'll look favorably upon this game or not. The fact that it's 10 years old doesn't do it any favors, either.

Red Dead Redemption

Currently doing missions for my wife. I had a lot of fun before I got to Mexico, but then it just got tedious and felt like work. The voice acting and dialogue is great, but I stopped caring about the story after the first few missions. Oh well, I never liked GTA either, so I guess this kind of game just isn't for me.

Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers

Day 1, 40 points of 342. Just got out of the Police Station after talking to detective Mosley. Liking it so far, though it took me some time getting used to the narrator's voice which now I think is kinda cool. I wonder if Chris Claremont or Jim Lee played this game, as Gabriel reminds me a lot of the earlier appearances of Gambit (the coat, the hair, some demeanor traits and the fact the both a from New Orleans).

EDIT: I just checked and Gambit is the older character. That must mean I'm getting old as I recalled him being a "new character" in the marvel universe.

Some time ago me and my friend made a cultural exchange, i would play his favourite game and vice-versa, so he got Half-Life and i got Final Fantasy 7. I never played a Final Fantasy in my life, actually i never touched an JRPG so... it was a rather interesting game to explore

I started a few months ago, lost interest at the beggining, but in the last few weeks i advenced quite a bit. I'm now at CD2 and i'm really enjoying it, the first few hours are a bit slow, but then it gets on track. Although the writing is a bit focused for a younger audience, the story is interesting and characters well made. The thing i most despise are the random combats... god so annoying!

But overall, it has been a good experience.

Eversion... a short puzzle-platformer available on Steam. Very interesting concept... at certain parts of the game, you can "evert" to a more "primitive" form of the level you're playing, to reach some areas you normally couldn't. I hate to say much more about the game, for fear of spoiling it, but the more times you evert, the more interesting (and genuinely creepy) the game gets. I've "beaten" the game once so far, but I didn't get to the real ending yet. Still trying to figure out what I need to do. Collect all the gems? Beat the last level at the most "primitive" stage?

It's $5 US, I think. If you enjoy unique puzzle-platformers such as Braid, this might be one to try.

You need to collect all gems. I enjoyed it, clever mechanics and i loved the contrast between the Mario references in the brighter "realities" and the Lovecraftian nightmare in the darker ones.

Interesting, Maybe I'll give it a chance in the future.

I've read in a review that the story is indeed a bit boring at the beginning, but it gets better after a while.

I'll check that game after finishing Alan Wake. Looks pretty good.

I'm playing Gabriel Knight 3 and I have a hunch that I am at the very last bit.

Spoiler:
I am trying to defeat Asmodeus. The only problem is that the three actions I can perform, use dagger, use talisman and walk backward all three seem to have no effect whatsoever, so I'm going to have to give this some more thought. Unless this is again just a stupid arcade section...

It´s been tricky for me as well

Spoiler:
use the talisman, immediately after the dagger

Actually I tried that many times, but it turned out that I overlooked to
Spoiler:
jumb in the tomb first. Performing these actions on the floor does nothing (the game doesn't tell you why it is not doing anything, and I couldn't tell from my point of view why using the dagger when Asmodeus was stunned by the talisman didn't do anything). Anyway, only by accident stumbled upon the 'climb on tomb' verb and finished the game.


So my current status: just finished GK3, still being a bit baffled by the story and the scope of the plot. How I wish there was a GK4 coming up...

Yes, it´s epic storytelling at it´s best.

I´d take GK4 over Gray Matter anytime.
But I don´t complain

LOL... I would have mentioned the Lovecraftian imagery, but I didn't know whether it was a "spoiler" or not. Nice ending! And I managed to get all but one of the achievements (I'm not effing around with a level editor to get the final one).

Right now, it's just Super Mario Galaxy. I'm halfway through the "bedroom", and I'm right where I left off on my previous game, over a year ago. Perhaps this time I'll actually finish.

I finished with "Tomb of Sammun-Mak" and continued "Secret Files". Did the Irish Castle chapter and have now reached the cave in the Himalayas.

You know this is actually a pretty hard game at times? I mean, that chimney helmet puzzle? How are you supposed to figure that out? I didn't even realize I could go back to shore (that also explained why I couldn't find any leg protectors anywhere).

Oh well, guess the game's almost finished; it's sure been fun and I'm also sure to play it again, if only because I like looking at Nina.

Next up is "Overclocked".

I've been playing the "Purina Dog Chow Incredible Dog Challenge" game, which I got when going to one of the Incredible Dog challenges awhile back. I love the event, and this game is pretty cool. Only four different events in the game, and pretty repetitive with only 3 contestents to chose from, but it's cute and I like it.

Surprise surprise, "They Stole Max's Brain" came out before I could start "Overclocked", so now I'm busy with that. Reaching the finale, have to do two more things but I don't know yet what they are. Well, I know what, but not how.
