Pre-orders on Origin get early access. Amazon.co.uk is cheaper, has just as many unlocks, comes as a disc (yay physical media) but doesn't come with the early access.
So your statement =/= true.

The 90's called, they want their technology back.
Oi, is this when I get a huge sig-image, start whining about "moar sid" and make nonsensical arguments to no good?

And yet I get better quality sound from my CDs than I do from any song from iTunes. Discs ftw. While they may be a bit less practical, I still much prefer them, and especially for CDs, I will continue to use them until an actual replacement comes along.

Actually, Minecraft. I've already bought it, but you know, it's TECHNICALLY not been released yet as full version. Virtual Lego is fun, at least so long as you are playing with other people. Also, redstone circuitry. Makes me feel like a boss an engineer who I am not. B) (English philology student here, also probably a NEET in the future due to no real prospects of work, but that's a different story.)

Also, Touhou 13: Ten Desires. Being owned repeatedly never gets boring, and with each new instalment your deaths get prettier and prettier-looking.
What is this Touhou? THIS, more or less...
Aaaaand before I know it, I went through being a NEET and got into harder-than-hard Computer Studies. The irony!
Suddenly, I do not care about Minecraft anymore. I went through a period of very active minecrafting online during these vacations and I kind of had enough.

Touhou was only cool because of its insane difficulty. I suddenly thought that if I have one of these Touhou games it is more than enough for a while. That is, until you memorize all the deadly patterns and master the game. And I was right. I focused on a single TH game. I lost my interest before I even moved from Normal difficulty to Hard.

Well that was unexpected.

You know what? I am now waiting for DotA 2. Not because I want to play it, oh, no no no, not at all. New video games are not very interesting to me. See, I like the "original" DotA, the Warcraft III custom map. I await with anticipation because I have the feeling that once most players move away from DotA to DotA 2, the original will only be played by hardcore fans. Which means the opponents will get more skilled, but there will be fewer of them, so it will be harder to play a casual game of DotA.

Obviously I am just fantasizing about what CAN happen, but it is not said that it MUST happen. I mean, look at Counter-Strike. Or Quake II for a more extreme example. Or Call of Duty 4.
 I must admit that out of these three games I am only playing Counter-Strike. But it feels harder than Team Fortress 2.

Although Team Fortress 2 was made to be a very fun and light game. Counter-Strike wanted to be more realistic, I think.

So here's a trailer for Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs.

I am looking forward to this game.


It'll be terrifying and I'll probably cry.



GOTY all years.

Oh yeah, shit's gonna be cash, I have no doubts about that. Though the trailer doesn't show much.

You know, I usually like Japanese independent shoot 'em ups. And I've recently found this game called Akashicverse: Malicious Wake. It's going to be released later this year I think. Though I am not sure if I am going to play it. Tell you the truth, this gameplay vid of the demo I saw kinda makes me scared. It's your stereotypical Japanese bullet hell with machines, lolis, and tons upon tons of bullets. But it is so trippy, man. Like a dying dream. It doesn't even have a story yet, it is going to be added later as supplementary material.
But it being surreal is not what is scary. It looks so hard. Unlike other bullet hells, this one does not even try to hide the fact that you are going to get hit and die, a lot. You are given infinite continues (a rarity in bullet hells) and even a shield to absorb multiple hits (again, in other games from this genre you are usually finished after one, maybe two bullets). Because there is actually no way to dodge everything. The last two minutes of this video, it's too fast for any human being to dodge. I gave it a working nickname of Fuck Yourself: the Game. You can play all you want thanks to infinite continues, but if you are not good at this game, you are just going to keep dying. That's just cruel. There is no incentive for the player to keep on getting better if you can just die+continue your way till the very end.

EDIT: apparently, it's an emergent trend among shoot 'em-ups called on-LSD STG. Oh wow. I don't even know what I play anymore.

(The game turned out to be alright.)

Holy cow guys, Metal Gear Solid V is coming out on the PCs. Rejoice!

Also The Stanley Parable: HD remix. It can hardly be called a game, but what the hell, the original mod for Half-Life 2 was really fun, even though it was actually a 30-minute-long barely-interactive story.

I'm mostly posting here because I just stumbled upon this thread by pure chance and it turns out it's been exactly one year, 36 minutes and 52 seconds since my last post.

Link for MGS V PC version confirmation? I though they said they were probably going to release it on PC, but it's not a priority. I assumed it would be like Revengeange, which was released on PC way after the consoles.

Also I'm definitely looking forward to MGS V, but with slight trepidation. The trailers and a lot of what I've read seem to indicate that they're pushing for a really dark and horrible story, and perhaps even making the mistake of taking themselves (and, more importantly, MGS) seriously while doing it. I'm afraid that, like pushing aside Hayter as Snake's VA, they're going to do away with a lot of the silly things I love about the games, like cardboard boxes, distracting dudes with porn mags, and exclamation marks and the sound that goes with them.

But most importantly, since they're obviously tackling real-life horrible things like blood diamonds, child soldiers, and real torture (as opposed to the cartoonish contraptions in the previous games), I have very little trust in Kojima being able to handle any of it with tact (just look at Tittygirl McSniper in the trailer), and if the game is missing the series' trademark humour, I'm afraid it'll just come off as dumb and insensitive.

Of course we've got stuff like Snake (why is he called Snake? I thought he officially took the name Big Boss already?) giving Kaz back his shades for the first thing while rescuing him, and riding a mini metal gear thing, which give me hope about the overall tone of the game. We'll see, though.

The gameplay looked amazing and even if I'm usually iffy on open world games due to the difficulty of providing a good enough density of unique content, being ridiculously detailed and planning shit like a bunch of lunatics is something I trust Kojima and his team entirely on.
