Stared minerva's den last night, just got to gaining the electricity plasmid. It really is great, so good to be in rapture again.

Only niggle I have is the movement speed of the character makes combat clunky and unnecessarily tough, to the point I had to put the difficulty back to normal as a little sister harvest was almost impossible.

Infinite has entered the Grind stage so might start Minerva's Den over the weekend.

The only bad thing about infinite was the halo regenerating shield and the bizarre tower defence type final battle. I loved it personally.

Played some more minervas den last night, it's so good I forgot it's DLC, as it's already clearly heading towards the end game. I also forgot about the big sisters, so I had one of those show up after a harvest, and then a roaming big daddy got caught up in the fight so I had him to fight too, on top of fighting the sister and having just done the harvest defence.

Forgot how much I liked the bee swarm power, I feel like a reverse jawa.

I think its possibly the most self-indulgent trash ive ever played. It was so, so convinced it was the smartest, cleverest, most intellectually challenging game ever made. But it was nothing but nonsense that shied away from actual challenging topics like race that it swept under the rug after about 5 minutes with nothing to actually say about racial issues, and focused instead on being a load of alternate timeline bollocks with the most face reddeningly piss poor attempt at a Shaymalan OMG THAT TWIST ending of all time.

Opening Hour of Infinite is amazing, i did find the ending amazing also I must admit.

It has a terrible middle bit but at least it tried something different, think about the other FPS's that came out the same year...

Played some mo Infinite and enjoyed some of the gun fights.

One thing I must say tho and that this game is Gorgeous, jaw dropping. X1 version is same as PC but yeah stunning.

It's not the same, might be a port of the PC code but it's dialed back in effects and can't maintain 60fps.

Infinite was great. It's the only 'AAA' game I know of that has built a narrative referencing several well known theories from pop science.

My point was a nod to it being a port of an older PC game but still miles better than 360. The sheer opulence of everything stands out in the higher resolution.
