    To each their own. I generally don't like PC gaming. If I'm playing a game, I want to kick back in my recliner, not sit at a desk. :p

    What says I can't? :p Not trying to get in a PC master race argument as I have nothing against the consoles just saying there is a big discrepancy in software prices. Whether it ever comes close to offsetting what I spent on hardware is another story...

    I play all my PC games from the couch on my bigscreen TV.

    My roommate absolutely hated that part of the game! :)

    Hell, I didn't even make it an hour into the first one. ;)

    Mostly because the FOV made me feel nauseous (and I don't usually suffer from that problem) but also I find games like that more stressful than fun.

    Well, if you found the suspense stressful, then the third game might actually be more to your liking. They basically turned Dead Space into an action-y TPS.

    ^Actually I think I'd find that even less engaging.

    Don't get me wrong, I *like* horror. I'm a huge fan of horror films and to a certain extent, literature. I just haven't played many horror games that I've been able to enjoy. In my experience they're generally either stressfully oppressive, but not actually scary or just mindless action games wearing the trappings of the horror genre. Typically in about as effective a manner as a bull with some seaweed draped on it's horn might try to pass itself off as a salmon.

    In the case of Dead Space, it was more issues with the mechanics combined with an over-dependence on blatantly telegraphed jump-scares in lieu of atmosphere and suspense.

    To give an example of a horror game done right (at least in the beginning) have a look at 'Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth'. Quite possibly the most terrifying and engaging segment of gameplay I've ever experienced come pretty early on and involves nothing more than basically running for your life, unarmed and alone, with nothing but your wits and pure adrenaline.

    Yea, but it'll be awhile before I could play it :(. A couple of years at least. I have a perfectly good "Old" 3ds that works just fine. So I don't need a "new" one just yet.

    Been playing OR and AS lately. Hoping to play some more games this weekend.

    I just got a Wii U a week ago so I'm playing:

    -Super Mario 3D World
    -Super Smash Bros. for Wii U
    -Nes Remix Pack

    I also downloaded the original NES Legend of Zelda on the virtual console so I'm playing that too.

    I played "X-Men: The Official Game". The game was challenging for me, and I felt relief when I succeeded at the toughest difficulty. I didn't like the last level, which I didn't complete at the Superhero difficulty, for it was a mano-a-mano fight. The game lacked a cohesive story structure.

    So I finished LEGO Marvel over the weekend and now I'm working on getting some of the other trophies. I still haven't decided whether or not I wanna get the Platinum.

    And I started playing The Last Of Us Remastered... man I forgot what an awesome game it is. According to my save game I'm at 54%. And now that I know what I'm doing, it's fairly easy on Hard. I might give that Survivor playthrough a shot eventually. :D

    I'm findin that to be the case with Tomb Raider as well. Places where I remember dying 4 or 5 times are now a breeze!

    ^ Well I thought TR was fairly easy the first time i played it (on Hard)... at least compared to Uncharted (especially the first one) on Crushing. ;)

    Awesome! :techman:

    It's been awhile since I've played on my Wii U. Gotta play some of NES Remix Pack. It seems crazy :p, in a good way.

    Yeah, I've replayed all of the Uncharted games three times, and there are still certain areas that are a challenge.

    TR is relatively easy, but there were still a few parts where I died a lot, though most of them involve me sliding and falling and getting impaled by random branches. :lol:

    Fallout: New Vegas, and I'm enjoying it, but as usual with games that aren't a bit more linear and far more character-driven I'm finding it difficult to stay focused/interested. Tempted to start my fifth Mass Effect run, but intrigued enough by the main quest to stick with it for as long as possible. The Mojave was going to be a tough sell regardless as open-world games just frighten me, but it's really not engaging me as a play space. The plot, however, is.

    It's really fun, especially for a nostalgia whore like myself.

    Yeah TR is definitely a more casual game. I still loved it though.
