Gaming/The Path review

So, all upgraded. In fact, my rig is basically complete now. I'm still getting some stuttering in some games it seems..and after upgrading everything else I suspect the CPU is the problem..I've heard people have had problems with AMD dual core CPUs so I'll probably get a quad core one or something sometime this year..but I'm not remotely in a hurry.

I've been playing a lot of games, of course..new ones and revisiting games I've already beaten, like BioShock:



Another thing I'm extremely happy about is Good Old Games...it's a digital distribution service for PC games if you haven't heard about it already (from me, since I dont shutup about it, or wherever else). I've gotten my tax refund for 2007 back recently (apparently I forgot to do my taxes), and I spent a nice chunk of it there because it's my favourite source for PC games..DRM-free, cheap as hell, contests, and modified to work with modern operating systems..plus they come with a bunch of free crap. So I about doubled my collection this morning after my money went through to Paypal (I dont have a credit card yet, which isnt entirely a tragedy for me):



Sands of Time looks freakin' gorgeous on this monitor by the way:



Augh!

Add that to my own list here on Neo, and you can see I have a sick habit. The list isn't as bad as it looks though..most of the Valve games I got practically free after finding a used copy of Half-Life for cheap..which was apparently apart of a Platinum Collection or something, as I found out upon activating it on Steam. Though it's going to get even worse than it seems once I clear out the want list...

(Hm..I'll probably post a picture of my physical game collection sometime. Too lazy now and I've already posted enough crap today hehe.)

On a related note: I encourage everyone who frequents this site to use the own/want lists...they keep me sane.

So, the second thing is The Path. If you haven't caught it yet, my one and only review was posted for the game last week, a horror title based loosely on Little Red Riding Hood. I highly recommend it if you're looking for something different. And if you're not..give it a shot anyway. :P
(Psst..we have a contest if you wanna win a copy.)

Anyway, I thought it might be neat to kind of show you how I wrote the review. I don't have a laptop so I just wrote notes on paper (remember that?!) while I played, which I kind of like anyway..it reminds me of a simpler time. :)
So, here are the notes:





(You'll have to click them and then click the 'original' button to actually read them.)

At first I was planning on going through the journey of each girl, as you might be able to tell..but quickly realized this would ruin much of the experience. But I used some of those parts in the end, which I'm happy about.

Okay, thats all for now lovelies. Happy trails. Be good to your fellow countrymen and friends from abroad.

I wish I could read my own writing. I can generally only make out about 2/3rds of words.

Paper notes are the way to go for alot of things . I don't remember the Sands of Time looking that good when I played it. I simply must catch up on the POP series once I'm done BioShock and Gears of War 2.

It didnt! I used a widescreen patcher. Allows it the higher resolutions and makes it all beautiful and stuff.

It appears we have the same keyboard.

Have you ever (successfully) tried to use the Setpoint Logitech software to configure the shortcut buttons at the top of the keyboard?

It's a solid keyboard.

Never!
I'm good with it how it is..seems to do things how I'd like it to by default.
