It's like gaming has only started for 2014. March has brought a number of cool games, including Southpark: Stick of Truth, Dark Souls 2 and Titanfall. Finally, something to play that doesn't include hipster retro 2D graphics and pixelized swords.

I wasn't convinced by the beta of Titanfall. I hated the lack of recoil on the guns. There is also that hateful auto-aim pistol too.
The player movement was great though, double jumping, wall running, etc. It felt like a much improved version of Brink.

"hipster retro 2D graphics and pixelized swords". Good one!

I'm just stating the obvious truth about indie games and what they are becoming. I need a break with mainstream gaming for a bit. :)

The new Strider game last month was pretty good. Evidently Double Helix finally found a genre they're good at.

The biggest problem is to divide your time between the games... Too many good games in a couple of weeks.

I want South Park - Stick of Truth but no way in hell I am paying $60 for it. When it gets under $30 I might bite.

I'm currently playing Tomb Raider cash grab edition on PS4.... I will say that it looks great but I am getting really bored with the repetitive gameplay. Also I keep cracking myself up when I play because Lara is our "good" guy but yet she has killed like 100 people so far on this island and I am not halfway done yet. That is some Drake (Uncharted) level mass murder right there!

^ This is my one complaint about Tomb Raider. Lara goes from a scared girl to a killing machine in a VERY short time. She gives one second of remorse after her first few kills, then it's a blood bath for the rest of the game.

It's ridiculous that Lara could turn into a merciless killer that fast. Even more ridiculous, the 100+ cultists can't stop a 21 year old girl. Stealth should have been included more in this game.

They did went almost full action. Some puzzles and exploring would have been great.

Only the gameplay needs a change, (a major one). If you'd ask me, I'd go for a more Assassin's Creed approach.

I tried to get back into Dark Souls for the third time. Got some nice mods for HD textures, resolution, SSAO, etc. Got a nice mouse support. Controls with keyboard and mouse are very good now.

Just like with Skyrim, everytime I get into the game, I get to find either the same faults or more of them.

The combat is clunky and boring. Maybe it gets better later and only the beginning is so god damn unwelcoming.

But absolutely nothing will make me double click that desktop icon again.

Dark Souls reminds me a little bit of Severance: Blade of Darkness and Rune. Only those were actually fun.

You know, for a year now, I haven't bought one single game. I have pirated some but I've played them like demos. I don't think I've played one more than an hour. So, I wanna respectfully ask, all this developers, to chip in and PAY ME, for my FUCKING WASTED TIME pirating their CRAP !
