    Kasumi: Stolen Memories, 560 Points 7/10 DLC
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    A great mission that comes with a really overpowered teammember. Kasumi quickly became one of my favourites and the mission that is included is about the normal length of a loyalty mission in ME2. Maybe a little longer. Kasumi has the same problem Zaeed has though. After the mission is done there is no real conversation with her. She just sits there and spits out lines when you trigger her.
    The price is fair since you really get a powerful friend here. Paying 800 Points for her would have been a stretch though. (See ME3's Day 1 DLC for that)


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Overlord, 560 Points 10/10
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I really liked Overlord. It includes several Firewalker missions (the firewalker controls worse than in the actual Firewalker missions though). And then there is the bases. One of which gives you content you cannot experience anywhere else in this game or the first one. The story was brilliant and the length was okay for the price. If you want to get one of these packs get this one.

    Lair of the Shadow Broker, 800 Points 8/10
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    This DLC should have been in the game or at least a little cheaper. There is no excuse for cutting it out really. Playtime is about the same as Overlord (maybe a tiny bit longer) and you get Liara back for this mission, which is a real PLUS.
    It includes some great set pieces including one that reminded me a lot of the best bit in mass Effect 1 (walking on the outside of the citadel). You can continue your romance with Liara (if you had one and don't have a new love interest) and the bonuses that you get after the mission are really worth having. This includes the only option to reassign the Squad points for your squad. A feature that would have been a must have in the main game.
    Even at 8/10 a real recommendation. Even though the price is quite high.

    Arrival, 560 Points, 8/10
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Not nearly as good as Overlord but still worth the money. This adds another 2 hours to your game and gives you an alternative ending. If you wanna play for yourself what Shepard is trialled for in ME3 this is your chance. And that is exactly my problem with this pack. This should have been in the game. Close to the end. (Maybe during the decryption of the Reaper IFF).

    Mass Effect: Genesis, 320 Points / free on the PS3 in the Cerebrus Network, */10
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    This really nice new intro is for players that don't own Mass Effect 1 or don't want to play through it again for the key choices. Here you can choose 6 events from the first game and how you handled them. And again I feel that this should have been in the game from the start. Especially this *feature*. No real gameplay here. Just a 15 minute movie that can change the way you experience Mass Effect 2.
    I will not give this a rating because I cannot.
    0/10 for cutting this essential feature out and selling it back to us later
    10/10 for the intro itself which looks awesome!

    What I want companies to do is collect all the DLC and sell it one one big pack. Do that, Bioware, and I'll buy your Mass Effect stuff. Don't, and I probably won't. Your call if you wants my money or not.

  • They did it with DA:O. But then they noticed they could make a lot more money if they don't do that again.

    Don't know why. I bought DA:O:UE. Twice. Oh well.

  • Fallout: New Vegas: 9/10

    I was playing a another play through to fight for Caesar, I think. It has been awhile since I beat it, several months probably. Since then I've just played Madden 2012 or Battlefield 3, I really need to get a new game. I suppose The Walking Dead will be that game. :P

  • Portal 2: Single Player

    Well that one was enjoyable. And it didn't have an ending that destroyed my enjoyment of the game. I personally think it's too long though (funny I'd ever say something like that about a game). Taking a break when one of the major parts starts helps a lot with that. Playing it in one sitting might be painful.
    I waited to play this and when I got my new PC and it couldn't run it I was heartbroken. This was the first game I tried to run on it. Only 4 months of mental pain later they finally got around to release a BIOS update so I could play it and it was worth waiting for it.
    The Puzzles were not that great for 2/3 of the game. Marking the correct panels for you or giving you a wide open room with only two white surfaces. It wasn't thinking about the puzzle it was just searching for a surface at that time. The rooms in the thirdf and final segment of the game where pretty good though. And I had real fun painting everything with the Conversion Gel.

    Now all I need is a Co-Op-Partner and a working microphone or I could try the challenges and the developer commentary. And there are still secrets I haven't found...

  • The Next Big Thing

    Charming little adventure game. Difficulty: About what Sam & Max Season 1 was. playtime: 7-8 hours (30€ on Steam is definitely too much but it was free with Yesterday so it's okay).
    Some of the puzzles are not really logic but are solved by the old use everything on everything trick. You always have a chart with your goals on it which is important if you take a break. Only one really badly designed puzzle that can take 100 tries to solve even if you know what to do.
    Great feature: There is hints and object highlighting but these can be turned off before you start the game and turning them off actually works. (also you cannot turn them on again unless you create a new profile)

    Overall: 8/10

  • Yesterday

    Really enjoyable adventure game that does a lot of things right and some wrong. The puzzles are about the same as in The Next Big Thing (maybe a little easier). Playtime 5 hours. Maybe even less if you are tempted by the hints function. This time there is no option to turn hints at will and object highlighting at will off (you get no hints etc. without pushing the button but it is always there tempting you). There is a nice replay scene feature that I never used.
    It has this nice cellshaded / comic look and if you click on something a little box with a bigger version of it pops up in which you can examine it or do something with it.
    2 things that were a bit strange: In a dialogue you will see the faces of the people talking but they only move when they say something. If they don't say anything they will not even blink. Also there is no narrator (no idea if that was on purpose or a mistake) I liked that personally in most of the cases. but in one scene there is a lot text in short time that you would wish someone was reading it so you can just watch the scene. It feels strange at the beginning when you realise that there will be nothing but the music in huge parts of the game. I wasn't used to that any more but I re-learned to enjoy that.
    No illogical or plainly unfair / annoying puzzles this time. And the game is on the serious side of adventure games. So don't expect any corny jokes like in Monkey Island.

    The overall experience, even though it was short, was a clear: 9/10 for me but 30€ is a bit pricy if it is for that game alone. Wait for a sale when it drops to 15€ or less.

  • Psychonauts - 8/10

    Good
    Good story
    Interesting and fun levels
    Lots of collectibles
    Lots of upgrade incentive for obtaining said collectables

    Not So Good
    Graphics are somewhat dated
    Prerendered cutscenes are lower resolution (ie. fuzzier) than ingame engine graphics.

    Unsure
    Character models are interesting, but it's unclear whether they look the way they do on purpose or as a result of limitations of the graphics engine.
