    Favorite horror game (and why)?

    I actually never managed to finish System Shock 2. It was one of those games that I tried to play when I was far too young, and couldn't cope with the very oppressing atmosphere. I should take another look at it when I have the chance. The Thief series also had some very scary moments, such as...

    Favourite Orchestral Game Music (also Video Games Live 3 Kickstarter reminder)

    Movies: -Old Boy: The ending reveal. -Rebuild of Evangelion 2.0 Essentially everything different they did from the original series. Games: -Half Life's Resonance Cascade. -Spec Ops The Line, when it starts becoming crazier after the White Phosphorus scene. -FEAR The first time I...

    Ever replay a game with a different language setting?

    How can someone ninja me? I actually have 2 copies of Pathologic and The Void, one in English and one in Russian to help me learn the language I also downloaded the Russian copies as well as the English copies of the Russian Indie Humble Bundle for later.

    Poll: How was your college/uni experience?

    This is probably the most worth-while post I have read in years here in The Escapist. Thank you for taking the time to write this, I really enjoyed reading through all of it. I will be going to university next year (I believe University begins at January/February here in Australia), and I can...

    Your favourite game moment?

    A couple of moments actually: -Spec Ops The Line: The second half of the game, particularly after the first white phosphorus strike. Truly memorable. -Half Life 1 & 2: The into sequence for obvious reasons. -Silent Hill 2: The revelation scene, the ending, the encounters with pyramid head...

    The Bad Guys You Admire the Most

    -Heath Ledgers' Joker. I mean, he contains a charming wit, a great characterisation, good speech and a charismatic laugh. What is not to like? For me he was the actual protagonist of Dark Knight, not Batman. -Do you count the Bolsheviks/Russian Communists as evil? If so, then yeah, I love them...

    What is/was/might be your major and minor?

    I plan to apply for the Bachelor of Music Performance degree next year here in Melbourne. Hopefully I'll be able to become a performing pianist.

    Music you thought you wouldn't enjoy but ended up liking

    I never thought I would enjoy Hip-Hop. Then I listened to Scroobius Pip, Sage Francis, Atmosphere and Cage and I like it very much.

    Best game you've played lately?

    Dark Souls 2 PC Version Won't Be Half-Assed

    Good to see this will happen. Apparently the PC version sold 300,000 retail copies on PC (no word on digital copies), so I hope they'll do just as good if not even better. I am glad I bought Dark Souls on PC. I really wanted to see DkS2 on PC, so I saved quite a lot of money for the game (70...
