Final Fantasy VII (2012) - I decided to play this game after seeing all of the hype about the PlayStation release and hearing some of the awesome music from it. When I bought it, I quickly changed the music files from the MIDI's to the original soundtrack, because I heard that the MIDI's weren't as good. It's been an enjoyable RPG so far and has major differences from the previous games in the series that I really liked.

 

FFVII's music has now been patched, thankfully :).

A whole bunch of stuff to be honest. With all the Humble Bundle and Steam deals i threw money at it recent weeks it's hard to focus on just one. Kid in a candy store kind of thing.
Sticking to the older titles though due to world travelling and just having a "13 inch AMD E-series netbook which is just powerful enough to handle stuff from before say 2004 and the simpler titles from now (Fez, FTL, Greed Corp. etc.).

At the moment i'm re-enjoying GTA: Vice City, which is a horrible port by the way but it's just so damn good that it is forgivable (hard to mod on Steam though), and have been playing Dungeon Siege, Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver and Monkey Island 2: SE on and off.
Not having a monster PC at my disposal isn't all that bad you know, gives me a chance to play some missed classics.

Just beat Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon. That was fun, but way too short. Not sure what single player game I'll take on next. Might take on Far Cry 2, then 3.

 

Multiplayer wise I've been playing the Battlefield 4 beta. Once I got it to run well, It's been a blast. Can't wait for the full release.

Max Payne 3 - been really enjoying this so far, runs beautifully on my low spec laptop (running on a AMD 6630M). Done a ton of work cleaning up that mess of an article.

 

Brought me back to a lot of nostalgia from the original Max Payne game which I loved and modded using the Kung Fu mod which was totally crazy:

Per usual, I've been playing some Team Fortress 2 at LANs with my friends. plr_hightower is still the best map :P

 

Other than that, I've been getting into Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. Sadly it still has yet to have been ported to Linux so I have to boot into Windows to play. I've mostly been playing gun game and I still completely suck, but I'm having fun.

 

I've also been playing Fez, which is an amazing indie game. I have yet to have had a single problem with the game (other than how hard it is, I guess). It was an exceptional port and the game's delays are clearly shown in how nearly perfect every detail is. The game is genius.

I quite liked Fez, even though there are a lot of people more or less hating on it, even some of the bigger names in the field. (Might have something to do with the Fish guy who's behind it.) Words like unoriginal and unimaginative come to pass. Sure most of it has been done before and a lot of little things and sounds even reminded me of classic games like Zelda and platformers like Mario but that didn't bother me at all. I'd rather see something copied right than something made up and implemented badly. It seems more likely that those older titles just inspired mr. Fish. And i really did like how everything in Fez worked out. It all feels very well done and controls are good.

I did however feel a little lost at sea when it came to all the secrets. That part of the game , with the whole hidden language thing , even though ingeniously thought out, isn't explained to the player very well and can looked over quite easily. If it wasn't for me stumbling over it somewhere in the Steam community i would never have known.

Isn't that why it's called a secret though?

Well sure, but if you want people to fully enjoy your game then you should at least give the player some subtle but clear hints that will get you going. I didn't get that at all.

Yes i noticed posters, paintings and writings spread out through the Fez's world but nowhere did it suggest that it actually meant something more than just that.

Anyhow, this is how i experienced it.

Scattered game choices all over the place... plenty of games to finish, but none really complete as such.  

 

At least they get completed at a trickle rate, they'll be done eventually.

Warframe: Addicting sci-fi shooter about space ninjas in a quest to find the mysteries of their past and to fight their enemy factions, while grinding for materials and items needed to improve their arsenals.

 

Batman: Arkham Asylum + Batman: Arkham City: Batman epi-fied, with lots of fun investigating and hourly thug beating. What else can I say? It's bloody Batman.

      I would like to invite community to predict what major PC gaming changes will happen over the next decade, please comment below if you have any thoughts. My own predictions are rather dour, I can see the 'end of PC gaming' as we currently know it will happen at some point in the future, but will it happen in this decade or in 50 years from now?      Current year 2020: Microsoft releases Xbox Series X and xCloud. Sony releases PlayStation 5.   Future: Microsoft Xbox sales higher than Sony PlayStation spelling the beginning of the end of Sony’s gaming division. Xbox Game Pass and xCloud merge to become thede facto game subscription system on their unified console/PC platform.   Steam release Steam Cloud, a desktop streaming service where you can play all your Steam games streamed directly from their content delivery network ala Stadia. It becomes a popular option for PC gamers that competes with Xbox Game Pass.   Stadia shuts down in 2023 due to lack of consumer interest which is overshadowed by Xbox Game Pass and Steam Cloud.   Microsoft release Xbox Series X Desktop, a new hybrid console and light PC that runs Windows X, a stripped down Windows OS that can only play Xbox games and run Microsoft Store apps and OneDrive/Office 365 and is designed to be used with keyboard, mouse and monitor. The next Xbox ‘console’ will run Word and Excel and kids will get them to do homework on.   At the end of the decade, light PCs emerge as the dominant new product range in general - with locked down operating systems and heavy cloud integration but with good enough gaming capabilities. Think Chromebooks but with passable GPUs and frictionless access to game streaming services and cloud services. PC hardware begins to become relegated to enterprise and hobbyist pursuits.   DRM like Denuvo becomes less relevant as games and consumers move to convenient subscriptions or streaming services. Game ownership question becomes far less important to gamers (see what happened to ‘music ownership’ once Spotify, Amazon Music, YouTube became popular). PC games become far more consumable, one-time use products and general users stop caring as much about game preservation.   Ultrawide resolutions rise from <2% to 25% adoption rate due to popular use in enterprise, replacing the 16:9 aspect ratio. 4K adoption languishes as computing performance begins to plateau and convenience of streaming takes over where 4K streams are heavily compressed.   Oculus releases another all-in-one successor Oculus Quest 2 and discontinue all other product lines ie Oculus Rift. Overall sales of VR games still do not dominate. VR games will only peak at up to 20% of the market, and it will be focused on the all-in-one product line and not PC VR.    Despite the short term success of Half-Life: Alyx, Valve Index sales slump and Valve step out of production of VR hardware due to low sales ala Steam Controller but still push SteamVR as the platform neutral choice. Third parties still compete on low cost VR headsets but Oculus Quest 2's Android platform will be the de facto place for VR gaming.
