Cowboom (owned by Best Buy) has had some decent ps3 deals in the past couple of months. If you're not in a rush I would check them or slickdeals.com a couple times a week. In the past two months I've seen sales on both sites for around $70ish+ tax + shipping.

Thanks, but I'm in Canada, so it's not usually worth it to try and buy cross-border. Anyway, I'm trying to resist! Razz (but I can't guarantee I won't check out my local used game store)

I'm taking some time to enjoy my Kickstarter offerings, Dreamfall Chapters and Shadowrun: Dragonfall. Both were released this fall, but WoW and Dragon Age sucked up most of my attention. These days, I'm in the mood for chapter-based adventure gaming and old school RPG play, so I finally got around to getting my Steam keys.

Been replaying Kingdom Hearts 2 from the 2.5HD re-release on the PS3 lately and another run through of Fire Emblem Awakening. Up to Xemnas on Proud Mode for the former and just started the attack on Valm in the latter.

Fun fact: I am stupid and have three copies of Kingdom Hearts 1, 2 and Chain of Memories and four copies of Birth By Sleep.

It's my guilty pleasure series. Razz

One of the best parts of getting married is seeing what all games my husband has, including Kingdom Hearts 1 and 2. I rented KH1 back in the day from blockbuster (olds) and never finished it and now I can!

KH was awesome. I can't believe I wasn't all over it when it first came out.

I'll be starting Dreamfall Chapters myself pretty soon. But I have to get more school/research work done first. Boo!

Oh, I know that feeling. It'll be worth the wait, though! I've been quite happy with it so far, and I think the story that's being told works well in the episodic format they're using.

Did someone say Dreamfall Chapters? *sustains self* I've been enjoying the whole TLJ saga very much. I mean, it's not without its flaws, but at this point I'm still honeymooning. Heavily.



Slightly off topic, anyone have recommendations for good PC games with little to no violence? (More Portal, less Gone Home?)

Are you looking for little to no explicit violence, or less violent themes? Papers, Please has little to no on-screen violence and is very very good, but it does deal with grim themes and off-screen government violence.

Also, gotta pimp Porpentine's Twine masterpiece With Those We Love Alive-- no explicit violence that I recall (maybe a tiny bit towards the end, but text-only) but deals with heavy and heartwrenching shit. Sorry, I don't play enough lighthearted PC games. Shrug

I love heavy, complex themes, it's the explicit violence I have a hard time with. Eg Bioshock: absolutely loved the concept but found the game experience (and the ensuing nightmares - yes, I'm like three years old) a bit too much for me.
I had heard of Papers, Please but not the other one - will check it out, thank you!

Here's some non-violent games that come to mind: Thomas Was Alone, Braid, Antichamber, Broken Age (actually, there's a scene where some characters are very cartoonishly and quickly eaten by monster with no gore or anything, but other than that there's no violence as far as I remember), Fez, Little Inferno, and World of Goo.

Anyone playing Pillars of Eternity? I may or may not be addicted. Also, thinking that this is a game that would be quite fun to LP (I follow an LP forum and keep pondering doing one of my own...) because wow, the people who wrote this really love their moral dilemmas. I'd love to toss some of them to an audience, I'm not sure *any* quest so far has had a straightforward "this is the right thing to do" option.

also, dat character creation. The only reason I haven't started a dozen new games is I can't actually make it *through* the character creation process without going "actually, I could play a Boreal Dwarf Chanter from Naasitaq! *restarts everything*"

So I noticed with Super Mario 3D Land that it was almost like the developers said "The 3DS can do 3D, now we don't have to try as hard to make the perspectives work." Neutral

Pokemon Picross on 3DS is very addictive. Worked 40 minutes on a puzzle before realizing I'd fucked it up and had to restart and didn't feel deterred

I picked up Sunless Sea, the spinoff of Fallen London, and it's a little frustrating but a whole lot addictive. It's cool to see new sides to some of the Fallen London lore and explore the bigger world. Though it really should be called Zunless Zee Disapproving

So a big rumour that just dropped for the next Zelda game (which is going to be on Wii U and the NX) is that you can choose Link's gender.

Yes-ish (it's kind of a been a "Why aren't you doing this, dummies?" thing for a little while), but the source on this one is someone who has leaked stuff that eventually came true

My wife and I both got Baldur's Gate a while ago on a Steam sale, and it's a lot of fun so far, except it keeeeeeeeeps crashing when we save or load in multiplayer Sad

I finished off the original Halo trilogy the other day. Halo 3 kind of homogenized everything and was probably the most so-so of the bunch, but did have some achievements tied up in a single player scoring system that I really liked. 1 was probably the best game story-wise and 2 the best gameplay mechanics. Probably gonna hit up the other side-games at some point

It was worth it to read the accompanying novels because it gave more meaning to Master Chief/Cortana stuff

Been doing more gaming stuff recently:

Super Meat Boy: I fucking hate this game, but I'm good enough at it to where I can be like "... One more try, I know I can get this."

Democracy 3: I'm really not good at running a country Grin

Ace Attorney 5: <3

Super Mario 3D World I'm just amazed that with the Wii U gamepad, I can play a legit 3D Mario and not a pared down one on what's basically a handheld. Shiny/thrilled

I saw that Hunie Pop was on sale on Steam and since some friends of mine had recommended it, I decided to buy it.

For those who don't know, it's a mix of puzzle game and dating sim.

It often feels weird to pick certain dialogue options just because that's what the woman I'm talking to wants to hear. On many occasions, I've even blatantly contradicted what I've told other women in the game. Basically my avatar in the game is a pathological liar.

I do that in pretty much any game where characters hold opinions of you. I JUST WANT EVERYONE TO LIKE ME, OKAY?!

The Egg Cup DLC on Mario Kart 8 put a smile on my face, specifically Excitebike Arena and Mute City, though I do like the Dragon Driftway twists and turns and chinese motif Grin
