    Absolutely not into early access games, buuut.... I've been playing ARK for the past week and I must say, it's a super pleasant surprise.To see the game is really good AND that the Devs are really serious people. Money well invested !

    ..... Will still go back roleplaying on GW2 for the time they fix their performance issues tho

    Mostly GTA V and also Lollipop Chainsaw, GoldenEye 007: Reloaded and Skate 3. If my computer was better, I'd play Hatred but it can't handle it. Really need to get an Alienware. :mad:

    Alienware is still good, even after being bought out by Dell years ago..
    But, if you haven't heard, some of the Alienware creators just started a new computer company called Origin.
    Probably as horribly expensive as pre-Dell Alienware, but, always fun to look at new computers!

    I think Alienware, though good, is way over rated.
    I haven't looked into Steam Machines yet, but those too you are probably paying more for the name than the performance.
    It's still cheaper, and IMO better, to just buy a regular computer and add to it.

    I am in the middle of Lego Star Wars, Lego Indiana Jones, and Legend of Zelda Windwaker.

    I might give that another run. I started to get into a couple years ago, but things came up and happened, and I didn't get very far into it.
    I have never liked the toon shading (I think that's what it was called) of Windwaker though.

    Cell-shading, actually. I've always thought it looked gorgeous, but to each their own.

    I thought cell-shading may have been it, but then I wasn't sure.
    As for Windwaker, I thought it looked way too cartoonish.

    I was planning to play Batman: Arkham Knight, but Gamespot gave it a 7. I don't know why. That's such a bad score for such a hyped game.

    It still has a great score on Metacritic and GameRankings, though, so I may end up playing it anyway.

    I still remember the rave reviews Halo got.
    I have always thought that game sucked, and was several steps backwards for the shooter genre.
    I've also like plenty of games that critics have hated.
    I'd rather just ignore critics and form my own opinion. After all, a glitchy and buggy game that has a low score can be fun because of all the glitches and bugs.

    I think a lot of people couldn't get passed the cel-shading and it's really a shame because then they're missing out on a great game..

    I personally loved the way Windwaker looked. Aesthetically, it's my favorite LoZ game.

    I'm currently playing South Park: The Stick of Truth.

    To be honest, it's the most fun I've had with a turn-based RPG in quite a while.

    My only complaint of that game is it completely and utterly devoid of anything that resembles a challenge.
    Too bad they didn't put a mode in to make it harder for RPG veterans, rather than making it entirely so those with little RPG experience won't struggle through it.

    There are a couple of the mechanics which are iffy for me.

    For example, no matter how accurate I press the button, I can barely block attacks half the time. Other than that, I find the game to be very enjoyable.
