I never truly stop playing Quake 3, but this was notably good. :P

Probably would have done if I had a better internet connection when it came out, but never did bother getting signed up on it.

Well I guess we need to upload some new ones then.

Ive been playing Metro Last Light. The Metro series is one of the best new FPS game series out there. Very well done. Its not a twitch shooter like Doom or Quake but just enough of a shooter/story to be good.

Metro: Last Light Redux is an annoying place for me - apparently DRM Free Linux builds of the game exist, but GOG.com has held back on releasing them:
http://news.softpedia.com/news/Deep-Sil ... 1335.shtml

Anyway, since May I have been trying to bash my way through Torchlight II due to the fact that at the time it appeared to be a good mindless time sink for me when things were not going so good, but I must admit now that I have reached Act III that the grinding really does start to get repetitive and dull after awhile:

To that end I have found myself relapsing to play F.E.A.R. 2 again and have now started another campaign of SiN Gold:

I am enjoying SiN more on my second playthrough than I did on my first. :shooting:

I'm heavily into Killing Floor 2 right now. I'm also using Rocksmith frequently to learn to play my guitar. But KF2 is freaking awesome.

Yeah Red Faction wasn't anything amazing. The destructible environments weren't exactly as they said it would be either. RF Guerilla on the other hand is pretty cool looking. Never played it though.

The game improves once the Mercs arrive and you get your hands on the more powerful weapons, but the early stealth sections are awful. Any game that needs to place an artificial restriction on you to ensure that you sneak through an area you would otherwise be able to easily blast through needs to reexamine its priorities. Especially when your best option upon sneaking through that area is the go back and shoot the place up in order to get your hands on additional supplies, not to mention to recover the health you lost when the alarm unavoidably went off and you were ducking and diving fire.

And I am pretty sure I missed quite a few of the vehicle sections later in the game. Meh, they always feel like cheating anyway. :guns:

Oh yeah those stealth sections did suck. So dumb to have stealth in a game that was praised for its immense levels of destruction. Very dumb.

Have you found that cool rail gun that punches holes through walls and has that x-ray scope? So cool.

So I seem to be running the gamut of lacklustre early 2000's FPS games. Just picked up Chaser for $2.09 CAD.

Image Image Image Image Image

Yet more crappy stealth sections and oftentimes clunky gunplay. Chaser reminds me of the on-foot segments of Shogo in a way due to its tactic of forcing you to take on loads of almost identical weak hitscan enemies that nevertheless are capable of dealing significant damage. The main difference being that Shogo had charm, which Chaser lacks. Production values are also all over the place, with most of the focus seemingly being placed on long elaborate cutscenes while the rest of the game suffers from a lack of attention to detail. I was even able to jump off the map in one level. Interestingly the game featured a bullet time mechanic only a few years before F.E.A.R. did the exact same thing. What undermines it here though is that your own weapon also slows down substantially. Nothing sucks more than having to watch your character reload in slow motion.

If anyone else wants to try the game it is still on sale from GOG.com as of the time of posting:

So Chaser has suddenly become Shadow Warrior. I kind of approve. :shrug:
