Had a cold, might have been the flue but I barely even acknowledge that I was sick so I'm sticking to the "it was just the common clod" option. I am NOT a fan of winter :/

Decided to give Bioshock another go. I've been talking about streaming it for months but never got around to it. So, I finally do and about 15 minutes into the stream the game crashes and resets all my settings. This kind of pissed me off as I spent quite a bit of time trying to fix the horrid mouse sensitivity issues by tinkering with several config ini files.
Let me put it this way, the PC port is less than stellar.
I decided to give it another go, this time without any config tweaks, since I now have a mouse with several dpi settings that can somewhat counter the issue of insane speed and acceleration when dropped to the lowest dpi setting. So far so good.

a creepy classic from the bizzaro parts of Youtube.


Don't watch if you get freaked out by spiders or cows.

On a bus starting what's supposed to be a five hour trip. Problem is that it was about 30 minutes late and has managed to move arond a mile since it left the stop. F*ck traffic :/

But is it worth it, story and overall experience wise?

If you skip TLJ you pretty much miss out on the entire origin story of April Ryan. It also introduces you to the worlds the games take place in. I never got very far in Dreamfall (even though I've been meaning to for YEARS) so I'm not sure how much catching up it offers in that regard.

Thing is that I'd be playing on actual hardware (assuming it still works, and I have enough blocks of memory to work with; I know I don't have enough for a SaGa Frontier 1 playthrough, and its been next to impossible to rectify this) so I won't be able to post screenshots or gifs, and I don't know how entertaining that would be.

You don't really need to use actual screenshots from your playthrough, plenty of screenshots and artwork on the internet that will decorate your topic if you feel it's necessary. I didn't use any pictures in my thread and people seem to enjoy it regardless so I don't think its a must, though it sure helps in giving it more personality. If you want to go full on Dice mode and go the extra mile to illustrate your topic and give it more spice then google is your answer, you also have this to get you started.

I've been looking at Adventure games and possible digital comic style games. Neal's reviews in particular.
I'm pondering playing The Longest Journey, but have seen some people recommend just skipping it and playing Dreamfall: TLJ. What do you guys think?
I have a very small history with graphic adventure point and click games, and that's because I always get stuck. So, I want a great story with some not too challenging puzzles.
Also, if I were to play my very first digital comic, what should I go for? I see popular ones like Analogue: A Hate Story, and think I should try that, but am just not sure.

If you can get your hands on it, I don't see why you would skip TLJ. I can't remember how complicated the puzzles ware, but I don't think it was Discworld level of head scratching.
I'd also recommend Broken Sword, especially the first two. I'm not sure how good the remastered/remade versions are but the originals ware fantastic.
Can't help you with Visual Novels, I don't really play them.

Yep, Wild Arms 2 seems perfect :)

I kinda wanna do a Let's Play type thing for these new boards. Or a journal type affair ala Dice. I'm busy with a review game just now, and then I'm going to Germany on the 27th, so it'll have to be when I come back from that.

I find it easier to do a game that has a lot of stuff to pick on, but remains entertaining enough not to become a tedious chore.
You could do Venetica, it's both terrible and oddly charming. Nothing like talking to the same guy, with the same voice, that's a completely different person than the last three you met :)

Max: Free or paid?

If you're happy to throw a few dollars around, I'd recommend:

- Kingdom Rush & Kingdom Rush Frontiers: Fun tower defence titles with loads to do (optional extra missions, difficulties) and require a bit of brain power. Awesome production values, also.

- Superbrothers Sword & Sworcery: An unusual adventure game that is combat-lite and thought-provoking. Not for everyone, but I loved it.

- Joe Dever's Lone Wolf: More expensive, and it does get frustrating at times, but a fun gamebook/RPG that I've definitely enjoyed. Plenty to do and well-written.

- Aything made by Kairosoft. Game Dev Story is the cheaptest and one of the best. Fun and addictive strategy/simulation games.

- Rebuild: A post-apocalyptic zombie strategy game where you build up the fortifications of survivors and try to escape/defeat zombies/other optional endings. Strategy.

I've also heard good things about, but have not played Chaos Rings. Also, FF IV, V and VI are on there if you can get past the graphics.

Both free and commercial are fine, if the price is too hight I'll simply skip it but at the very least know what to look out for when it's on sale.
Funny thing is, I may have bough Rebuild last night as part of the humble mobile bundle, so I'll have to check it out.

I'm looking for an Android game that will keep me entertained during long trips. In other words I'm not looking for the type of game that I'll be playing during a short bus ride or on the toilet but rather a proper lengthy game to keep me occupied for several hours a pop.
Any genre goes though obviously RPGs are preferred, though bare in mind that I'm not a fan of touch controls on platformers, unless they're done exceptionally well.

Canada must be a fun place Dice (not being sarcastic by the way).

You skipped the "Users being ignored" statistic (Where did you get these stats from anyway?). I think my peak was 2, but I'm down to 1 again. I'm fairly sure it's CDFN after I said nasty things about Uncharted. Funny story, I actually think those games are pretty great now :) Just a guess though.

Took me a moment to realise what happened when I couldn't think my FFXIII thread.

So I think I'm not alone in saying I think threads like Maxx's FF13 playthrough, Dice's FF7 playthrough, and forgive-me-for-forgetting-who's FF6 playthrough have been some of the most entertaining threads we've had on these forums, plus they've generated lighthearted and fun discussions and debates.

Makes me feel bad about not updating for so long :(

Been buys with NS2: Combat recently.
It's about time I got back to my FFXIII playthrough.
