Tomb Raider is $7.50 on Steam. For anyone that hasn't played it... GET ON IT!

It's not nearly as bad as you think it is, don't worry.

Plus, the fact that she is still a kid makes her more vulnerable than an adult, so in sticky situations it's more stressful/more important to make the right moves. Personally I like season 2 better than 1.

Also yeah, Wolf Among Us is great, the only issue I have with it is I don't think there will be a season 2. There could be, I hope there is, I just don't think there will be with so many more Telltale series coming up (Game of Thrones/Borderlands) plus TWD still going. I think this was a one and done season.
I'm happy someone prefers TWD Season 2 to 1. I've never really spoke with anyone about it, but I would really prefer Season 1 as it felt a little bit more like a "journey". It's good to know that I could be the only one in that because I absolutely love the series and wouldn't want people to be acting like it's going downhill.

Season 2 defo tugs at the heartstrings a bit more too. Not a single person sat with Luke (no spoilers lol).

It'll be interesting to see what happens with TWAU. I don't know too much about it's popularity. I'm really not too bothered with Borderlands because I've never played the game before. It's not something I'll be TOO interested in. While Wolf Among Us has fairly broad spectrum of what could be journeyed into. There are a host of characters to interact with and even play as. The ending left the opening for a sequel, as well as the town's 'reaction' being displayed at the end (wording everything to make sure I spoil nothing). I hope they do make a sequel but I never considered it until you mentioned it there.

Played the Destiny Beta. I thought it was good, but nothing special. It felt like a mix of Halo and Borderlands (but mostly Halo). I played part of it solo, part of it co-op with a friend, got a decent taste of it. The two main issues I have would be fixed if it was on PC:

#1, the FPS is really bad. It's supposed to be 30fps, but I feel every missing frame. 30fps is, well I wouldn't say unplayable, but it's far less enjoyable than it should be. Lower the graphics and give me higher FPS, an FPS at 30 frames is just not optimal and all it does is make me want a PC version.

#2. The field of view is AWFUL. The amount of screen space you have is just downright bad and actually damages my ability to play. I can't see the enemies right next to me, I have to turn all the way around to find someone. The guns need to be a bit smaller and the FOV needs to be turned up a lot. It also makes me a bit nauseous when everything is so enclosed.

The game is good but could be so much better if those two things were fixed, they make the actual gameplay far less than what it could be. I'll probably either get it when it's half off, or wait for a PC version that hopefully comes out eventually.

Has anyone here played Aliens: Colonial Marines? I know it has a bad reputation for being an awful game, but how much of that is fans being way overhyped and thus being disappointed, and how much of that is the game actually being legitimately bad? I watched some PC gameplay and honestly it doesn't look so bad, not the best FPS footage I've seen but from what I can see it looks decent and worth 20 bucks or so if you're an Aliens fan/just want an FPS to play.

Got the Destiny Beta but haven't loaded it up yet. I got the WoW Warlords of Draenor beta right before the Destiny beta began so I have been playing that. Seems a lot better than MoP.

After watching Alien, Aliens, Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection for the first time (yes, I've never seen an Alien movie), Alien: Isolation is one of my most anticipated games. That game looks really great in general but after watching all the movies I want it even more.

I went ahead and bought Aliens: Colonial Marines. I've heard bad things but then again I also heard bad things about other games I loved, for example Alpha Protocol and that's easily one of the best action RPG's I've ever played, I enjoyed that more than I enjoyed any Mass Effect game (although I really like the ME series). Anywho, can't go wrong for 20 bucks especially when I hear the multiplayer is fun and that people still play it.

Played some Destiny Beta at a friend's house. It's not a bad game by all means but some things about it just aren't right IMO.

First of all the aiming controls suck ass because you use a gamepad and they give you an aimbot to make it easier. I take that as an insult. We tried using keyboard and mouse but it didn't work, maybe because it's still a beta. All I know is gamepads and shooters should stay as far away from each other as possible.

Second, they seriously reduced your choices when upgrading weapons and armor. In the trailers and early gameplay videos you can see you can collect weapon parts and upgrade them individually. We'll in the beta you can't. You have one set of predetermined upgrades for each weapon and you just buy them. And there goes that whole part of the game that made it interesting...

Third, the loading times are baaaaaad. About a minute and a half to load the first area of the game, not as bad when you go back to the Tower. May be a beta problem.

Fourth, there is no ******* loot. Maybe I'm just spoiled by all the other games out there but we played two characters to level 5 and in total we found maybe 4 or 5 items (excluding the quest rewards).

Fifth, it only made me want to play Borderlands even more. Again, it's not a bad game by all means but the way it is now (without the custom weapon modification, basically no loot, have to use gamepad) I might as well play Borderlands 2 or the upcoming Pre-Sequel on my PC.

Sixth, you need ******* Playstation Plus for basically everything from joining a party (yes, that's correct) to PvP.

Seventh, it's not going to come to PC because Bungie is led by an asshole who claims nobody likes to play shooters with keyboard and mouse (actual quote) and they single handedly revolutionized FPS when they made Halo. What a jackass.

Metroid is the unofficial Alien game if you ask me.
