    Finished with Unreal 2: The Awakening. Lot of issues with this one, most boiling down to the fact it's a ported PC game. That results in occasional control issues (like having to scroll through your big collection of guns constantly instead of just tapping the right numeric key for the one you want) and a bunch of technical hiccups, most notably the way enemies and NPCs more than 20 paces away lose so many frames of animation they practically move like Mr. Game & Watch. Despite this, I enjoyed my time with the game. The story's not much to write home about - an undisguised MacGuffin quest with multiple enemy factions after the same thing - but the scope of the campaign shows how big and thought-out the Unreal universe is, with loads of wildly different planets and a real sense of history to inter-faction relations and the like. Every mission is practically its own self-contained story, be it a descent into a planet-size Sarlacc's mouth, a prison break, or escorting the most mouthy pain-in-the-ass scientist you'll ever hear of (who at least has the common sense to stay out of the way, so, there's that). For an Epic Games release the writing's actually pretty sharp - which in fact I would say about Bulletstorm, so, what's Gears' excuse? And it's just as well since you'll be putting up with a LOT of talk between levels. Another limitation of the port, probably: at some point I figure the game would allow you to wander around your ship freely between levels, chatting with your crewmates. For whatever reason this got scrapped for the Xbox, but they kept the conversations recorded and just play them all one after another like a chopped-up cutscene. It doesn't flow well and there's a lot of repeated information in there, annoyingly. But back to the good, you move with a pleasing degree of heft and almost all the guns have a good feeling of impact and are genuinely useful. It's difficult to really recommend Unreal 2 but I don't feel bad for having tried it.

    Replaced with TRON 2.0 Killer App, another PC port. There's nothing about TRON I don't love and, old though it is, this absolutely captures the look and sound of TRON right from the get-go. Too bad you're playing as a guy seriously called 'Jet'.

    Been playing some Uncharted 3 remastered and Ni No Kuni.

    Uncharted 3 I have decided to try on Normal and folks , let me tell ya ...that isn't an easy deal. Level 14 or 15 , where you gotta avoid the snipers and more is insanely crazy on easy. I can't imagine folks who play the game on HARD or CRUSHING. Dear lord ...be insane. Anyhow I finally made it through that part and could celebrate some thank the gods.


    Ni No Kuni is a fun RPG and the combat I can tell is what Final Fantasy XV wanted to be like. But Square seemingly couldn't understand , you don't need to make combat a clusterfuck.

    Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney.

    I'm coming at this from someone who has never played a Layton game and has only played the Ace Attorney series. I recognize that the setting, and the investigation portions, feel more like a Layton game, but with the trappings of Ace Attorney mixed in. To the surprise of no one, I'm really enjoying the trial portions of this game. They are a little different from the usual Ace Attorney fare. There are multiple witnesses on the stand at once and you have to check to see how other witnesses react to the testimony.

    Out of the 3 Dark Souls games(Haven't played Demon's or Bloodbourne) I had the most trouble with 2, but that came down mostly to stuff like the weird hitboxes on the smelter demon's sword and how in a lot of cases they substitute challenging enemies with just throwing a ton of them at you at once. While not a bad game it was very much my least favorite of the series.

    Anyway, finally picked up Mortal Kombat X and played through the story mode. I think MK 2011's story mode was better but I still enjoyed this one for the most part. Playing though the arcade mode equivalent now with all the characters, some early favorites for me are Sub Zero (Cyromancer variation) and Kenshi (Balanced variation).

    I have only played the first (a few hours) and the 2.
    The 2 was difficult enough to me.
    Especially the second fight with the Pursuer and the fight with Smelter Demon,i think with these two boss`s was when i was the most stuck at the game.
    So far Dark Souls 1 look challenging enough as well,the enemies for example seem a bit faster than in the 2.
    But seems that i am progressing faster in the first one that i was in Dark Souls 2.
