So in an effort to stay vaguely current I thought I'd update this page, it might be something I try to do monthly. I should say that I am terrible at sticking with something from beginning to end so I do quite often dot about between games. Last months update is here.
I'm still playing LA Noire, about which I will write in more depth at some point. I can't help but think it's too easy at the moment... Sims 3 still amuses me and Rift still calls me back a bit as well.
I have indulged in the Steam sale over the last few weeks and picked up some things that I wanted which I saw on offer and couldn't resist. I can't help but notice that it is the month of the sequel!
The Witcher 2 - I enjoyed the first story of Geralt and invested in the second. So far (and it hasn't seen much air yet) it's very pretty, it's very smooth but there's a lot of cutscene. I think more than gameplay as yet. But time will tell. It's also quite unforgiving, so lots of saving is par for the course.
I also invested in Bioshock, the original game because everyone tells me how amazing it is. I am pretty impressed so far and it was £3.49 which I think makes me a winner! (This game somewhat dissapointingly though doesn't fit in with the month of the sequel so I rectify that below!)
Portal 2 was another reduced buy because lots of people rave about it. Perhaps I will be too, certainly I'm impressed so far.
And finally for now I bought Neverwinter Nights 2... My inner geek couldn't resist it for £5 with change! I'm looking forward to playing it. I didn't try the dungeon designing thing in number 1, but intend to in this version.
All of this ended up with me investing in a new graphics card as well - I thought mine could handle the pace but I was proved wrong. I have to recommend the helpfulness of the people at PC World - they knew exactly what they were talking about and I got a great deal with a card that was on sale. Hooray.
I have been somewhat snowed under with work of late so none of the games have seen enough play time, but in months to come I am sure they will get some hours of enjoyment / frustration thrown at them!
