    I blew through Shadow of the Tomb Raider over the past week. Solid gameplay. Story was kinda weird given that everything is Lara's fault in the beginning, but it seemed to only really come together in the last few hours of the game in terms of the story. Overall, it seemed to be a substantial improvement over the previous games for the gameplay pacing & I actually got around to the tombs this time (I was completely apathetic while playing the second game in the trilogy).

    ----

    Also blew through Prey the other week. Pretty solid Bioshock-in-space, pretty much. Loved the art direction too. The DLC probably wasn't worth getting, but I guess it's deserved money for the developer considering I waited so long. If I knew how great the SP was, I probably would have gotten it day one.

    It's just too bad they decided to use the Prey name considering the lineage/history of development. Seemed like it should have been a new IP altogether.

    Quite enjoyed the twist and the gameplay, although things were really confusing and overwhelming at the start once things started to open up. The waypoint system was serviceable after a while, but I can see how complicated it probably was in trying to make it function at all due to the game world.

    I can not tell you how much this annoys/bothers me. I loved the original Prey, it caught me off-guard when it came out and blew me away! When I heard about this I couldn't figure out if it was a remake or a sequel, to find out it had absolutely nothing to do with it was devastating. :( (Ok, so I'll survive the emotional hurt and it probably won't affect my life very much...but it felt like suck on the inside for a bit!)

    Finally got Doom for $15 Steam winter sale. It is super fun and runs well over 100fps max settings 1080p on my GTX970 lol.

    I had to look that up on YouTube and that is not a game, that is an image viewer with a clicky UI.

    I was taking a walk, the wind whistled all through the night and other welsh hymns, suddenly my attention was drawn to a burning shrubbery by the howl of a very gifted bat. It was the Gaming Gods and they commanded me to replay the Dead Space Trilogy.
    So I'm nearly at the end of Ds1 and really enjoyed it. I did use a trainer to give me $1million to to save me not having to traverse the levels and going to the shop multiple times picking up ammo and health drops because of limited inventory space.

    I was hoping they would have an upgrade path specifically for the leg/boot in the sequels.

    For reasons.
