    Just played a bit of Alan Wake, can’t really say I enjoyed it, maybe I was expecting all the wrong things. I was hoping for a bit of a scare but I think Corpse Party desensitized me from any other kind of horror found in games (granted, it’s a completely different kind of game).

    What I found in this game was faced a shooter with a mechanic I hate as much as cover shooting, I don’t know if it has a name, but I really don’t find any fun in this mechanic when it was in Shadows of the Damned or Red Faction: Armageddon – The mechanic of applying something onto an enemy before they turn vulnerable to take damage. Granted the game looks absolutely gorgeous on PC, though the gameplay I can do without.

    Also I was playing Nehrim: At Fate’s Edge, a total conversion mod for The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. Basically takes all the assets in oblivion (alongside some extra stuff) and makes a completely new game out of it. Quite interesting as its free (requires a working copy of Oblivion though) and is a +60 hour game. The game, like Oblivion, is quite buggy, in fact it’s way more buggy, had the machine freeze on me twice trying to play the game. I would have carried on if it didn’t crap out, but I thought you guys might find it interesting.

    I just tried out the demos for both Infamous 2 and Red Faction Armageddon. While both seem line fine games, especially the former, one thing surprisingly stops me from really investing in them at all:

    I hate their main characters’ designs.

    In the case of IF2, I actually preferred old-new Cole to what we got now. I didn’t think anything of Cole in the first game other than that his voice sounded like a 20-year-old Solid Snake. I thought Cole’s hair-and-black-T-shirt design better fit his new demeanor in what I saw in the sequel. Now he somehow looks and sounds even more obnoxious, like a bald space marine’s head attached to some street kid’s body. If there was some kind of hair stylist functionality in this game (like they just added in The Witcher 2) that’d be cool.

    After trying the Armageddon demo I actually took the game off GameFly because I just don’t feel like I need to play it. Probably a fine game – some fun weapons and all, but I honestly would have preferred a “Red Faction Guerrilla 2”. Worse though, is that Darius Mason somehow manages to come off as more obnoxious than his grandfather, like he has an unnecessary added gruffness in his voice.

    Why do we still have this aversion to hair in games? I think we’ve seen that hair can do badass things for a character when it’s not done the Tetsuya Nomura way. See: Geralt in TW2. I actually like Geralt’s half-ponytail a lot.
