Man. I need to stop playing Dark Souls. It makes me mad.

Darkroot covenant is dumb. So dumb. Level 25 guy with a Balder Side Sword against a level 200 wreckmaster and his buddy, butt-blaster? Naw. NAW.

Oh well, it's like, my eighth character.

That's kinda the point.  Besides, if you were looking to be PvP effective at level 25... what?

You only need to kill a few people to get the Cat Covenant goodies, anyhow.
Any questions, comments, or condemnations to an eternity of fiery torment?

"Be impressed.  Now!"

ftlgame.com should be up on steam and GoG.com soon. My impressions from beta are that while its unique and fun, its challenging and not balanced very well. It suffers from being TOO random in terms of drops.

Protip get a teleporter and two mantis crew members. Then BOARD and make sure the enemy ship doesn't explode or runaway with your away team on. Killing all crew members gets you more loot because the ship stays in tact.
And there was some dwarf smoking spice, and I thought that was so scandalous because I'd only been playing in 'nak.

Modern Warfare 3 is the newer release, but an obligatory Please Don't Support Activision is necessary.

If you have time to spare, I think Black Ops 2 comes out soon.

Are there any better war games like that instead? He'll probably be playing mostly single player, at least for a while.

If your husband is a casual gamer, Black Ops or Modern Warfare 3 single player are probably your best bet, sadly.

Battlefield 3 is another option, although the single player won't last very long.

If you want something a little deeper, Spec Ops: The Line supposedly offers a more thoughtful/intelligent plot in it's single player campaign.

I'm not ashamed to say that I really like the Call of Duty franchise and that I buy every single games that come out when it does  :)

The people scattered gold-dust before my horse’s feet;
But now I am a great king, the people hound my track
With poison in my wine-cup, and daggers at my back.”

I know, me too. But it means he's pleasantly distracted while i'm playing Arm!  :D

Edit: Presuming WARFACE means what it obviously does? Anyway.

Edit again: Ok I fail at gamer geekiness  :-[

It means what it obviously does, as well as being a terribly named game :P

It might be worth having a look at ArmA if he's into WARFACE military shooter games.  I've never played it, but apparently it's rather good for what it is.

Also, To The Moon is now out on Steam.  Y'all better play it.

Well, Kenshi got Greenlit by Steam, so expect the game to actually be followed through with. It's obviously got enough of a fanbase to warrant it votes. I'll be keeping an eye on the game.

King of Dragon Pass kept me awake pretty much all night.  Can't believe it took me 13 years to boot it up.

I love that game. If they never release an android port I will be in danger of getting it on the iPad just to "touch" the beautiful art.
And there was some dwarf smoking spice, and I thought that was so scandalous because I'd only been playing in 'nak.

KodP is a fantastic game and I play the shit out of the iPhone version.

Something about it is just so damn addicting.

Does anyone know if there's a full screen patch/mod for PC?  I'm absolutely loving it so far, but it gets a little squinty at times.

Also, FTL hits Steam in just over an hour.  I'm back to staring at a clock again.

The PC version is stuck at that resolution. I would lower the resolution of your desktop ... it's the only way around it. The PC version has more "knobs" and a tula screen along with about a dozen fewer scenes from what David Dunham said on the blog. It's the only version I've played.

FTL is officially released and on sale for $9. It is DRM-free and works multi-platform. I bought it. Worth every cent.

I found the FTL trailer very confusing, I couldn't even begin to grasp the game mechanics based on the video. Maybe I'm getting old. Already.  :-[

Those goddamn mantis boarders. Now I know why staff don't allow people to play them.

In an early beta version if you opened up doors to outer space you could -suck- people out. They removed that quickly though since it was OP.

For mantis, I usually send 2 people after them back and forth to the med center, until they either port back or are in the med center fighting while my defenders are being healed.

This is a well done game that's WAAAAY too random. I emailed them about this and they said it's part of the design.

The game is fun, but it doesn't seem to be much based on skill whether you win or lose. So vry typical of a rouge-like in that way. I've been playing a lot all day though, only gotten to the boss once.

Yeah, I agree, it's just too random for me.. You try to follow some tips but unless you get lucky, there's no way you can plan ahead some sort of strategy..
