Gamer for about 30yrs and still loving it. Always been a console gamer until recently getting into PC Gaming. I really dig the indie scene and it has become one of my main focuses lately. I also write for a great gaming website looking to get better called VelocityGamer.com. I'm the guy bringing the PS3, Vita, and PC gaming focus to the site. Check out my the first article of my soon to be reacurring editorial Indie Picks of the Month. I'd really appreciate your input and recommendations for new games to spotlight.

I've played the crap out of Sound Shapes and earned my double platinum. Game is amazing and a definite must buy for any Vita owner. Other games on my Vita I've been working on are PvZ and Gravity Rush. I'm pretty close to earning the platinum for PvZ. I never thought I'd like the game much but playing it on the Vita is so much better than console. Gravity Rush has been pretty fun. I am having a hard time with the controls for it though. It takes some learning but I have improved from when I first started the game. It's sometimes hard for me to track my direction because of the motion controls.

On my PS3 I finished Shadows of the Damned and X-Men Destiny. SotD was a fun an awesome adventure. If you can handle grotesque horror and crude humor this is the game to play to get both. I also enjoy the story and the characters. Garcia Hotspur is now one of my favorite demon hunters.

X-Men Destiny on the other was a boatload of crap. I felt like I was playing a game from 10 years ago. Hell Duke Nukem had more polish than this game and it took 14 years to make. Silicone Knights hasn't done a great game since Eternal Darkness. The did do the MGS on GC but that wasn't already a game completed by somebody else which they ported. I did get the platinum from it as it only took about 10hrs total. So if you're a trophy hunter this is an easy one.

For my PC gaming I've been playing The Witcher, Terraria, Blacklight: Retribution, and have finished Amnesia.

Amnesia was a great game but man was it nerve racking. Playing a game where you need to stay in the light so you don't go crazy and then have to hide from monsters once and a while in the dark because you have no weapons really gets to you. It was fun to play and a good horror game.

The Witcher has been pretty good so far. I haven't gotten to far in it yet but I wanted to play it first before I started The Witcher 2. Blacklight is a great FPS F2P game. I wish they had more stuff like this on consoles.

Last but not least is Terraria. It's like Minecraft but 2D. I stayed up till 4 in the morning a few weeks back mining and building in this game. I didn't get into Minecraft the first time I played it but after having so much fun with Terraria I may try it again. Terraria is well worth the money at $10 and should be checked out if you like Minecraft.

I've really dug into PC gaming lately. I've been buying all the indie bundles from the different sites that do them. I bought a crap ton of games from the Steam summer sale. I've also had to download Desura so I can play some of the games I get from the bundles. I never realized how much great stuff I've been missing out on for PC being a console only gamer. Looks like I'm staying in the PC community now.

Oh I've also been digging on some game soundtracks lately which is cool because a lot of times when you buy the indie bundles you get game music with them.

Well that's it for me. Thanks for reading.

I too just recently got into PC gaming. It has options and advantages that consoles are just sorely missing. The main reason I think I never got into it is because I've never had a powerful computer. Now that I have one, it's amazing. I have Skyrim on PS3 and PC now, and I doubt I'll ever touch the PS3 version again (especially since it's pretty broken anyway). But from another new PC gamer, here's to future enjoyment. Cheers.
