Borrowed a 360 from a friend to continue this survival horror kick I've been on. Currently playing through the Silent Hill HD collection that came out, while waiting for a cheap ebay copy of Metal Gear Solid HD to arrive.

Looks like the big anti-cheat update was just released for Fall Guys, but ever since installing it, I'm sort of locked out of the game.

Yeah yeah, I know what it looks like and no I didn't cheat. I suspect it's overzealous anti-cheat software doing something to my internet connection, because as soon as the game stops me from logging in, my entire connection to internet becomes unavailable. Steam says I'm offline and my browser won't load any pages anymore. Things come back online when I kill Fall Guys.

The absolute worst way to play Silent Hill. I hope these aren't your first playthroughs

They are horrendous ports with huge bugs like audio clipping, stereo channels reversed (lol), framerate issues, missing or replaced textures and samples, broken shaders, and a bunch of other immersive breaking issues.
Technically you can complete the games but most of the original atmosphere is being broken by these issues.
Also the company responsible for the port went bankrupt before they were able to release a patch so its a literal lost cause.

Definitely not my first play through of 2 or 3, but the most convenient way to play. I don't own a PS2 anymore, and a buddy had a 360 sitting around with the game.

So far I've noticed a few of the bugs, but they aren't detracting from the play as bad as reviews seem to make it. Still having a blast playing through this game that messed up my sleeping patterns in my childhood :up:

360 games are so damn cheap secondhand. I snagged Red Dead Redemption and L.A Noire for under $10 too. Might take a light cruise through some more 360 games before I give this 360 back.

Just finished Dead Space 2. I got it for a couple of euros in a Steam sale.

Apart from a few annoyances related to controlling UI menus with mouse/keyboard, EA for some reason having made all of the DLC upgrades available for free right from the start of the game (although you can just ignore those) and EA servers not being available for the game anymore, this game is just so good. It's better than Dead Space 1 and while the gameplay is relatively basic, it's just so satisfying to use those weapons on the Necromorphs.

I can definitely recommend this game. It is a horror game, but not really survival horror. It never gets really scary but it's very atmospheric. There's also a few sections with genuinely original gameplay.

I wonder though, is Dead Space 3 worth it? I remember reading it's not really good, but maybe I remember wrong.

Will do while recovering from dark souls. :up:

I'm actually not a fan of them... The jump scare games kinda bore me. It's like, oh, there's a zombie corpse, well might as well put a few rounds in it before I get close cause you know... Rinse and repeat.

It's extremely unremarkable, but worth playing if you want to finish the trilogy.

Blasphemous - 8/10

Souls-like Metroidvania.

The exploration is a bit too linear for my taste and there's not much room for sequence breaking since most of the gates are locked by key items/events rather than movements.

But the boss fights are a real challenge; esp. in New Game +.
