4. Deus Ex: Human Revolution (Director's Cut) - Nintendo Wii U
This "Director's Cut" of Deus Ex: Human Revolution supposedly fixes what are seen as the biggest gripes that people had with the original release. Most notably, the game no longer forces you into gun battles with the bosses. It's now possible to complete the game without so much as firing a shot. Being that this is one of my favorite games of all-time, I'm very excited to give this Director's Cut a play through. *update* Having played this game for a little while now, I managed to reach the first boss, and I'm happy to say that if you concentrate your points into hacking, you won't be completely screwed like you would have been in the original release.

Telltale Games makes superb games, and I'm expecting nothing less than that here.

6. Fez - PC Games
Aside from being critically acclaimed, this game is coming HIGHLY recommended to me by one of my good friends, whose taste in games (or at least his assessment of whether I'd like a game) I have a fairly high degree of trust in. Looking forward to giving it a shot.

9. Super Mario 3D World - Nintendo Wii U
Alright, This is the first "big one" for the Wii U. The first fully 3D Mario game. I'm kind of excited to see what they've done with it. Like Call of Duty, I've played every single main console Mario game, so I know what I'm expecting. *update* I'm completed 5 worlds now, and I'm enjoying every second that I'm playing. I'm even leaning towards doing a 100% completion run of this game, which means tracking down all three of each levels hidden stars. Many levels also have a deviously hidden "collectible stamp". I'm not sure just what exactly you do with these things, but whatever, I like collecting them anyway.

10. The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD - Nintendo Wii U
I thoroughly enjoyed playing the Wind Waker back on the Gamecube, and I was just thinking that I'd like to play it again when I found out that it was being re-released on the Wii U in HD! Whoo-hoo! Also, they made a few changes that make me VERY happy. They give you the option to GREATLY increase the speed with which you sail around the game world (originally I felt like it took FOREVER to get anywhere) and they drastically reduced a series of late game fetch-quests. All in all, this sounds like they took an old game that was superb in it's own right, and made it absolutely magnificent. I can't wait!

13. Space Hulk - PC Games
Well, it's an okay game. I like it, mostly because I love pretty much anything that has to do with the Warhammer 40,000 universe. It's a video game based on an old-school board game. I agree with most reviewers in that while the game is slavishly true to the rules of the old game, it probably would have benefited from altering some of the rules for the sake of smoother gameplay.

14. Batman: Arkham Origins - Nintendo Wii U
Well, it's another Batman game. I suppose some people would fault a game for just offering up more of the same, but when it's Batman, and it's basing it's gameplay on the superb work of it's predecessors, I'm hard pressed to find fault with it. That said, I do get this odd feeling of deja vu. I really feel like I've done a lot of this already. Still, I'm thoroughly enjoying myself.

16. The Walking Dead - PC Games
Well, I played through this game once already on the Xbox Live Arcade. However, I have ditched that console in favor of the PC. That means that I'm going to have to play through this game again before I can play Season Two of the Walking Dead. I don't mind that one bit.

19. Pikmin 3 - Nintendo Wii U
All of the reviews of this game have been lavishing praise upon this game, and as a Wii U owner, I'm absolutely STARVED for some really good games to play on it. I really liked the first game, so my hopes are up for this one.

21. Papers, Please - PC Games
I find this game oddly compelling. I'll agree with Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw in calling it a "Bureaucracy-em-up." It's just a day-in day-out simulator of a soul-crushing, monotonous job that requires something of a hard heart to perform.

22. ZombiU - Nintendo Wii U
Alright, so I feel like this game was made to show Nintendo fans that they're really going to start making "Mature" games for adults, not just kiddie games, but... it's really not that compelling of a game. It has a lot of really good ideas, it's just a shame that it's not terribly fun to play.

I really love the hell out of this game, and I'm looking forward to playing it again. Simple as that.

25. Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge - Nintendo Wii U
I'm not going to lie, I've really hated all of the Ninja Gaiden games on the last three generations of consoles. They are hard as shit, and the story is absolutely bizzaro, and not in a way that I usually enjoy. Still, I'm strangely drawn to try this Ninja Gaiden game out, regardless of how turned off I was by the previous iterations. I'm glad to report that the issue of the ball-busting difficulty has been addressed by adding a "wimpy" mode. Note: Even the wimpy mode is still kinda tough. Also, the story still doesn't make a lick of sense. At least the gameplay is fun.

27. Starcraft II: Heart of the Swarm - PC Games
I'm enjoying this game quite a bit, and it actually inspired me to try completing Wings of Liberty on Normal difficulty, (I only beat it on casual previously. I suck at RTS games. I did end up beating it on normal though.)

28. LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes
Regardless of what it's based on, all of the LEGO games are pretty much the same. And you know what? I'm perfectly okay with that.

30. XCOM: Enemy Unknown - PC Games
I'm playing through the DLC/Expansion for XCOM: Enemy Unknown, known as XCOM: Enemy Within. Ya know, being able to give my soldiers mutant abilities or cybernetically enhance them wasn't something that I was asking for, but it turns out to be just the thing I needed to breathe some new life into this game. I'm impressed not only with the new friendly and enemy unit types, but also the MANY maps this expansion introduces. I'm definitely getting my monies worth out of this game.

32. Fallout: New Vegas - PC Games
After taking a break from playing Fallout: New Vegas, I decided to give it another shot, this time on my PC. The visuals looking REMARKABLY better than they did on the Xbox 360, and by now it seems like most of the major bugs have been fixed, so playing this game on the PC is a solid improvement, which has enhanced my enjoyment of this game considerably.

33. Volgarr the Viking - PC Games
I am loving the hell out of this game. It's easily one of the hardest games I've played, easily on par with Super Ghosts n' Ghouls. It has the same play style, so if you've played that, then you know what kind of game Volgarr the Viking is. What I especially love about this game is the fact that it borrows heavily from a relatively obscure arcade game by the name of Rastan. In fact, the entire first level is almost exactly lifted from it. There are cosmetic changes, to be sure, but it's almost exactly the same level. Still, I love the fact that instead of ripping off Conan like Rastan does, it comes up with it's own Viking themed aesthetic. I love it.

35. Planescape: Torment - PC Games
I am loving every minute of playing this old-school RPG again. I'm taking my time, reading every word of dialogue, doing every side-quest, just fully absorbing the game once again. I love it.

36. Penny Arcade's On the Rain-Slick Precipice o... - PC Games
I loves me some Penny Arcade. Now in glorious 16-bit sprite form!

*edit* I must say, I'm enjoying the hell out of it so far. Granted, I'm only playing on Normal Difficulty (there are 2 harder difficulties) so I suppose I shouldn't complain that it hasn't been very hard so far. If I want it to be tougher, I certainly have the means to make it so.

Orcs must die was a blast but short, and playing through again on the harder difficulty seemed near impossbile!
Posted: 1 year, 11 months ago at May 3 22:49
I've been playing Orcs Must Die! in short bursts. I generally play one or two levels and then move on to something else. And yes, the hardest difficulty is IMPOSSIBRU!

Let me know how I Am Alive is. It looks interesting to me, fellow dystopian future lover.
Posted: 1 year, 11 months ago at May 4 9:10
It's very interesting so far. Very intense. Also, fairly difficult, but maybe I'm just an idiot. Fairly good. I'd recommend checking out The Walking Dead by Telltale Games. It was short, but great! It's in episodic format. Five episodes at $5 a piece. Not too shabby, in my humble opinion.

Sword and Sworcery is a pretty cool game. A definite must :) I had to start over because I repurchased it for PC (had it on my iphone) so I have to get back to where I was before.
Posted: 1 year, 8 months ago at Aug 2 13:26
I've heard that game is actually fairly short, but there are some small changes that occur based on what phase of the moon it is in real life when you're playing.
