Finished Mass Effect 2
You guys were right, it was awesome! And they kept the story interesting, which is more than you can say about most sequels. Looking forward to ME3.

Just as when I played ME1 I found the game quite boring the first hour, but once you got in to it it was great. I think I ended up spending 26 hours playing ME2 in total, which is 7 more hours than the first game.

I liked how my decitions from ME1 actually had an impact in ME2, even though it didn't matter as much as I wanted it to, but I hear that the choices you make in ME1 (and ME2) will have an even bigger impact in ME3.

I think it's a shame that they removed the inventory system, and that they removed the infinite ammo feature. I often ran out of ammo, and as far as I know you couldn't buy ammo between the missions so sometimes I had to let my teammates do all the work. Luckily the AI was better and more controllable than it was in ME1.

Also I've been playing the BF3 Beta. It's fucking awesome, but quite buggy so far. Love the intensive firefights, they really feel vivid. I really enjoy the new suppressing feature. When you're getting shot at, you feel the danger even though you are behind cover. Feels like I'm playing Company of Heroes from a first person perspective. I'll probably end up wasting even more time on this than I did on Battlefield 2.

Last week I was complaining about how I couldn't get Mass Effect to work but eventually I did, however I still suffered from some major problems such as not being able to load my saves (which was quite a pain)

Today I beat the game, and I have to say that this was probably the best game I've played in a long time. It was awesome. The story was incredibly imaginative and the gameplay was very entertaining.
This is probably the first game that truely had me care about the characters. They were very memorable.

I'm buying Mass Effect 2 next week, and I'm guessing that will keep me entertained until they release Battlefield 3.

I got into Uni! The physics course. This is a dream come true to me. I've been studying a lot of physics and it's really something that I love.

It's a 5 year long course, divided into 2 parts. 3 years of basics and then a two year master course after which you can attempt to doctorate if you wish. Perhaps I'll someday become a lecturer as I've always wanted.
Wish me luck. :)

Has anybody else tried Amnesia?
I started playing it a few days ago. Honestly I've never been more scared in my life. Holy shit. FEAR ain't got nothing on this.
The story is very interesting, however I'm progressing through it at a really slow pace since I keep shitting myself and close down the game every 15 minutes or so.

For those who have played it, what did you think?

Crysis is awesome.

Fighting koreans who also have nano suits was the best action experience ever

Aha, my new arctic_flare map for HL2 is soon done!
I didn't make any reflective water, but I connected it with an ENV_cubemap, so the sky is relfecting in the water. :D
And a fog makes it harder to see the day textured sky.. :P
I'll change the texture next time. ^^
