I started a second play through on Last of Us. One thing I noticed

 
Maybe I mentioned this before, but the start of the game feels more videogamey than the parts beginning with Bills Town. It almost feels like the designers trying to psych us out a little with typical videogame tropes, then switch it up on us. I know I mentioned the idea that is seemed like there might be supplies vendors that you have to visit, but there were other things. For the first little while, some of the "missions" felt really gamey. "go find Robert". "Get your weapons back". There were others that I can't think of at the moment. It was almost a bit tedious playing through them again. But once Tess dies and we hit Bill's Town, the whole tone of the game switches to being more cinematic. Even though we're doing things like going to find a car battery, it doesn't feel hokey. Anyone else get that feeling?

And something I didn't notice the first time. Probably not really a spoiler

 
When you grab a guy and take him hostage, I would just choke them out last time. This time I shot one in the head and there was a glorious red mist

Apparently you can download the first episode for free as a demo. Give it a try, it's quite unique.

I finished Walking Dead this weekend. What a gut wrenching, emotional game. I reiterate my recommendation from last week. I'm glad that Season 2 will come out sometime in the fall, as I want to see how the story continues.

I ordered Heavy Rain, and I will try to finish Mass Effect 2, which I abandoned a few months ago. Good times ahead.

Did you play the 500 Days (I think that's what it's called) thing that just came out and bridges Season 1 and 2?

Can you cancel your Heavy Rain order? Heyo!

Not yet. I'll download it soon and play it closer to the release of Season 2, I think.

Ha - too late for that. From what I read, most people either love it or hate it, so let's see in which camp I'm on. At least it was pretty cheap.

I loved it until I reached the end, at which point I hated every stupid second of it.

I love that dumb game. And I can't wait for GTA V.

Also, download this before Nintendo destroys all evidence of it:

Pokémon: Generations Windows game - Indie DB

I just thought it was so stupid, and left so many massive plot holes and inconsistencies, that it pretty much ruined the rest of the experience. Mass Effect 3's ending was incredibly fulfilling in comparison.
