Gah. Skyrim’s Dawnguard is still not available for PC. ME3 DLC is… nobody knows.

I guess that I could try to do Deus Ex: Human Revolution again, although I never could get the flow of combat right on that one. Or maybe I could just start Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning from scratch, although obviously it didn’t hold my attention.  Or I could just play Spider Solitaire forever.

This is starting to get grim.

    The flow is like this: 1. Sneak up behind someone. 2. choke them out. 3. Drag body to air duct. 4. Stash body in air duct. 5. Go back to step 1.

    If for any reason you are seen, restore to last save, or hide in air duct till your enemies stop looking.

    True, it means the game will take 60 hours to complete, but believe me, it’s more fun that way.

    Yeah, pure stealth is like a chess match. It also helps to be fanatic about scrounging for goodies and being good at the hacking game. Try it again before you give up on it.

    Try Kohan 2, still playing it after 3 years. It’s fun to see how the combat flows, especially in 2x2x2x2 games. You can actually see your skills developing. Although I also like Galactic civilizations. Trade is important in that so start early.

    Ever since my computer melted, I have been playing Solitaire when not online. I’ve personally made-up three different rule sets when playing and I’ve memorized them all. I’m starting to get bored and am about to start a fourth Solitaire set of rules. Maybe some day I’ll publish them.

    Some other suggestions:
    1) How close did you get to 100%’ing Skyrim? You will have probably a month until the X-Box exclusiveness wears off. You could use the gaming time to prepare. Or go fight some giants; that might be a lark.
    2) From what I heard, Kingdom of Amalur works splendidly as a 10 hour linear game and terribly as a 60 hour open worlder. If you chose that route, do only the main and faction quests and it might work better for you.
    3) It might be time to dig into the older release stuff. Amnesia: Dark Descent should feed the Lovecraft itch in interesting ways…

    You might also look at some of the inexpensive PC RPGs on Steam – I got Cthulhu Saves the World as a freebie last week when I bought the latest Penny Arcade Adventures episode, and it was kind of amusing in that 80s JRPG way, good for 5-6 hours of fun. Definitely worth the three bucks if you like that sort of thing.
