Considering I've bought quite a lot of games recently, I'll just stick to what I have for now (next month or so).
Anyway, what's your opinion on Cursed Mountain, do you have one yet?

I have it.
About 3-4 hours in and Id say its very good, probably worth getting if you liked Eternal Darkness, or similar slower paced horror games.

Artistically its stunning. A real surprise to me. The graphics engine isnt anything amazing or anything, good drawdistances are about all it can boast about. But its really well used, the texture work with the town area at the start especially. It also seems fairly well researched and intelligent....certainly dosnt play-down to its audience like a lot of games do.

That said, its too early to judge the story, and it hasnt had any real smart puzzles yet to speak off. It feels a bit like Eternal Darkness "light" in a way. Same well created atmosphere, good voiceacting/writting, and uncliche charecters....but not nearly so original in terms of its actual gameplay.

I'll have to try to give it a bit longer to form a more detailed opinion on it.
My Wii has been away for repair over the last week, and Ive only just got it back. (fairly common disc drive problem with old Wiis...they repaired it for free despite being out of warrenty, and did it darn quick, but they forgot to re-assign my WiiWare link >_< That should be fixed today sometime...)

Ah..hmz..in that case its a bit hard to think of a comparison.
There arnt many slow paced Horror games these days let alone well written ones.

I guess it would kinda be like what Zelda would be, without the tool-like items, much less exploration,more story, and the whole game only populated by Redeads :P

Btw, I had my Wii replaced recently (Metroid Trillogy had problems running),
if anyone here has my Mii, or any Miis from me can you send them back to me?

My new number is 2327-4516-8325-3127
So update your address books folks

Metroid Prime Trilogy crashed for me recently. I collected the Varia suit but when the game should have shown me Samus in the new outfit, the screen went black and nothing happened any more. I had to plug the Wii out to reset it. Then after I replayed to that scene it didn't have any problems. The DVD also doesn't look damaged at all.

If you start to get disc-read errors (Actualy say disc error etc), send the wii back to Nintendo.
They will deal with the problem for free, even if its out of warranty.

Release-day Wiis often get this problem, theres a fault on the dvd drive that only shows up with dual layer discs. (Trillogy, Brawl being the most common)

Metroid Prime Trilogy:

The only problem I have with this game that sometimes you miss the save point and can't get back to it. I has very low on health when I finally found one in the Phazon Mines.

Yes, the game can be very frustrating when the saves are spaced far apart.
2 and 3 I find are a lot more forgiving then 1.

As for your Wii, guess you just have to wait and see.
If you get a disc read error on trillogy, brawl or any other dual layer game I think they will replace it free, regardless of when you bought it.

btw, people share codes with me :P (for trillogy) And if you got my Mii send it back.

What games you have you played recently then? Because to me it seems like we are in a golden era these last few years.

Kirby Super Star Ultra - nice game & all, but I wonder whether it's really worth 40€.

Well, most of those games would bore me too.
(Not that Diablo's bad, of course, its just that theres soooooo many clones/things like it, and after you played a few they all seem pretty much the same).
WoW (and, in fact every MMO Ive played) bores the hell out of me very quickly. They are just, fundamentally, very repetitive games. Social Interaction/Multiplayer improves everything, no question. I just find the actually, you know, gameplay boring -_-.
Dunno what HoN is, so cant judge that.

If you havnt already, you really should get Portal.
By far and away the best PC game of recent years.

Apart from that, Id look into the smaller companies. Often these games are $20-30, so much cheaper, and normaly just as fun (if not more).

Check out Penumbra;

http://www.penumbragame.com/

Scarest game Ive played.

Ive also played a demo of a FPS called "Cryostasis", which is pretty slick and quite clever. Interesting storytelling.

The Path - Strangest, eeriest, most surrealistic and most unique game I've ever encountered. This is unlike anything I've ever seen before. The whole game is like a riddle I haven't deciphered yet. If you're looking for something fun, this is not the game for you.

World of Goo -

They have a special birthday sale offer that lets you pay anything you want, from 1 cent to whatever paypal lets you enter as a donation value. But the server got crushed yesterday because of the massive traffic and I still haven't gotten anything yet.
