Wanted to play Mafia III this weekend, but the shop in which I preordered had some logistical issues, so I need to wait for Monday
At least I'm getting it for quite a cheaper price then in other shops
I have some really high hopes for this. Gameplay-wise it's probably more of the same GTA-stuff. But setting and story are the main focal points here.
EDIT: So I've sank a few hours into Mafia III and so far I find the game really enjoyable. At this point I'm surprised with the harsh reception it got with all those comparison movies etc. Sure there are some glitches here and there by I didn't encounter anything gamebreaking: no crashes and Superman jumps for me at this point. There are things that previous entries did better, but I don't know if those are things of so much importance to your avarage gamer (who needs to tank their car in a open world game?). That said, game has great atmosphere and music. And the Bayou at night is simply gorgeous (not to mention other climatic locales like French Ward, cemetries or an abandoned sunken Lunapark).
Gameplay wise it's nothing groundbreaking, simple driving and shooting around, though the game has some cool ideas (for instance how you 'uncover' the map with junction boxes). It doesn't have the GTA's level of activities to do outside the Story, but I find the Story itself really engaging so I'm good (plus nowadays I don't have that much time to 'goof around' in games). I've heard some bad things from people about driving cars in this game, about how it doesn't feel right, but maybe they simply forgot to turn the 'Simulation' mode from the Options menu?
To put it simply I think the problem with the bad reception lies in the fact that devs generated too much hype with this game (and that it's predecessors were such good games)... I still must play this game a lot more to get the full picture, but so far I'm very positive about it.
*Skyrim Legendary finally will get to mod this classic)
*Shadowrun Chronicles - Boston Lockdown
*Might and Magic X - Legacy
*HOMM VII (staying true to the cause my friends)
* This controller, but only 10$ from ebay. (Edit: This controller is small but seems workable)
If I drop the motivation after these games I am done trying and thats okay. But I hope I get into these games over the winter season on my time off :|
I am looking for an immense gaming experience; Lastly I played the mass effect trilogy and I need something like that. A game with a great story that really pulls you in and will not let you go Any suggestions?

Ugh, for the third time I made it to the final boss in Nuclear Throne, but I am yet to beat the damned thing. Drives me mad!
My buddy's doing a webcomic and would certainly appreciate it if you checked it out!
I was playing last week "supermechs" from the featured games on this forum. The "Upgrades" have worsened and slowed the game significantly and led to sync error (probably because of publicity) ...
however despite all, I found it better than the simple average pay-to-win as strategy was still important.
I got to tier three of the PvP easily enough without paying, just playing four days.
However upon reaching level 30, i did not get my epic rewards (two mythical items) because of bugs (as I hadn't at level 25), so I quit it because there's no other way to get mythicals...
Overall sadly do not recommend :/ it was nice while it lasted bu tthe frustration of not getting one of the most important things of the game due to bugs is too much.
A whole new game experience...

Oh man, thanks for bringing up these memories
I only had battletoads on my gameboy....it's probably the only game i was never able to finish (i was stuck in the level with the falling rock chasing you for a long time and then something underwater...ridicilously hard but fun game).
Speaking of ahrd games again....castlevania, loved all of the games but also wanted to smash my mouse/gameboy etc to the wall sometimes. I'm now playing Castlevania dracula X chronicles on my PSP (which has bonus content: Symphony of the night (sweet!).
aaaand speaking of hard games. on my laptop i currently play Darkest Dungeon.....Unforgiving

Not if you build your "heroes" with some long-term planning and compose your party taking into account the opponents in the different locations (Jester won't be of much use in the Crypts but shines in the Warrens, for example). The only really tough part is the Darkest Dungeon itself but it's not impossible. Once you beat the main game you have an option to start a new one where the monsters are tougher, you have time limit and are restricted to 12 dead "heroes" for the whole campaign or game over. Now THAT is hard.
I got the hang of it by now but in the beginning it took some time to find compensations for groups and testing how to make curio's beneficial....and some of the bosses surprised me.
Like erhm....brigand vvulf, don't know how i was supposed to beat him with 4 level 5's. Needless to say two died and two escaped barely . But i like the challenge....definetly will try the hard game mode as well when i finish
Brigand Vvulf is beatable but as with all top tier bosses, you may need a bit of luck. Bring along a healer (preferably a Vestal), someone who can mark targets (preferably a Houndmaster), a Bounty Hunter to hit the marked target (Vvulf) for massive damage and someone tough to hold the front (Crusader or Leper). Focus the beating on Vvulf, he doesn't have great Dodge rating, nor any Protection, so his health drops quite fast - but don't ignore his henchmen completely, they can gut your team easily if left unchecked (in one of the fights against him I killed the snow with 3 "heroes" left, 2 on death door and 1 pretty close, then one of the henchmen dealt a Deathblow to the former two... barely retreated with the survivor).

Nice! I have never made it past the 5th stage or so.
As to what I am playing? Grim Dawn and Shadow Warrior 2 (with a buddy and my wife) and Civilization 6 (the main reason I haven't been around much lately).
The giant has awakened
You drink my blood and drown
Wrath and raving I will not stop
You'll never take me down
