I was playing Classic Ironman and was doing okay but was never able to get any engineers which pretty much prevented me from building any useful equipment.


Had a few false starts with more Classic difficult, then eventually went with Classic Normal and have been doing a lot better (the strategic campaign is where I notice most of the difficulty reduction).

I have gone to bed at pretty much 4 AM every day this week since it's been released.

It's easily the best game I've played this year.

Ahh..it's my first time playing. Didn't know about any ring like that. I'll have to check it out I guess. Thanks for the info.

Walking Dead Ep. 4 is now available for download.

Also, I would STRONGLY recommend Dishonored for single player gamers. Combines some of the best elements of Bioshock and Deus Ex. If you liked either of these games, Dishonored is likely worth playing

aye.. it can be hard to stop 3-4 of the countries from leaving at the beginning, especially without the extra satellite from the tutorial. This is my first time playing the tactical Turn based squad game, ironman is a little to hardcore for me yet!

I just wrapped up Xcom. I played 95% of the game on Classic mode, but the final encounter of the final mission was so ridiculously impossible for me that I had to ratchet the game down to normal.

Absolutely amazing game, and the only competition it has for game of the year this year in my books is FTL and Walking Dead(assuming the last 2 episodes are as quality as the first 3).

Now I sit on my hands and wait for my copy of Dishonored to be delivered.

I still like episode 2 best, but that is more from a popcorn and a couple beers angle.

When it comes to character drama and absurd choices this series continues to escalate. It could just be me being a dumb kid without alot of nostalgia for classic point and click adventure games, but this has to be considered among the best ever.

First playthrough I killed everything in sight, and now I'm trying to finish it without killing a single person... Much tougher this way. Great fun though. Definitely recommend.
thanks for that
I've heard great things about this game so i think I'll pick this one up

Bought AC3 yesterday. The graphics are so good, everything is very creamy and smooth. It is very linear at first, i played for about 2 hours and still cant do full free roam yet. Very fun so far.

Did one match online where you are trying to assassinate someone based only on a picture while others are trying to kill you. Hid with this crowd who all had hats on (my character had a hat) and I killed like 5 people before anyone noticed I wasnt a NPC but a real person

I've got the next 3 days off, I think I'm going to go pick it up in an hour or so. I'll probably roll up to futureshop around 12:30. I don't want to stand in line with a bunch of smelly kids.

Probably should have just gone to Gamestop and gotten a ticket for the advance line.

Not sure what the lines look like now, but BestBuy was lined up around the building for a midnight launch a few years back. Showing up by 12:30 would've had you home by 3.

I'm just going to pick up my copy tomorrow morning.

I'd probably get back so late that I would barely have any time to play tonight anyway.

Hmmm, I have a few things to add

Walking dead game is great (not a whole lot of games that make you want to replay the whole thing... just to see)

Halo4, never liked anything Halo. So Meh.

Dishonored? So based on the comment above. What if I loved Bioshock and hated Deus Ex ?

Classic games, lets do Monkey Island! ... still awesome.

Side note, never thought much of it (since I don't like Warcraft crap), but I picked up Orcs Must Die for 2 bucks. A great 2 bucks spent. So simple, a lot of fun.

Black Mesa anyone? Free to play, goooood memories ... with better graphics.

Final note, Just finished Borderlands2 .... holy heck is it a lot better than the 1st one. I actually wanted to keep playing it. To bad the ending sucks. Still, better than ME3. Blah.

For all the Boarderlands players, I haven't played the first one yet though I've always wanted to check it out. Should I pick up Borderlands 1 first (which I would imagine I could get fairly cheap now) or should I not even bother and just pick up the new one? Is BL2 a game that you could pick up and play without ever playing the 1st one, or do you figure it would be better to have played 1 first?

Dishonored looks pretty awesome as well, but I may wait to get that one. I only have so much time available to me to play video games, and there's a lot of cool looking stuff out there.
