That's a nice mechanical keyboard.

The Razer green switches (actually Khail switches re-branded as Razer switches) are virtually MC MX Cherry Blues. That means Nem will love the tactile feedback and the clickity-clack and everyone around him will hate him soon. I'm currently using Browns but I want a Corsair RGB with Blues.

Mechanical Keyboards are fucking great though. Unless you're a godless heathen who likes linear switches. ;)

Playing Alien Isolation and The Evil Within at the same time can my heart take it?

I have to say though Alien Isolation I'm finding really quite creepy. I think the music really helps, the atmosphere is really strong. Coupled with the fact you never know when the Alien will turn up. It's not really often youcan get massacred by the save point in games. That's usually a safe spot.

Funny you mentioned that. I've always though that if I made a survival horror game, I'd have totally put a scare in a save room about half way through to let the player know that they are never safe. You gotta keep the player on their toes and surprise them by showing them that you know how gamers think in games and that you'll take advantage of that.

Just got Evil Within on the PS4, I'm enjoying it a lot. Love that it's a much harder resident evil 4 with a even creepier story.

I haven't quite got around to starting it yet but it always looked more creepier then Resident Evil. It looks like it's much closer to the earlier Silent Hill games.

The clickity clack is not a problem around here.

We had a fire alarm broken on our old appartment wich beeped every couple of minutes for a year. We developed a bit of a resistance to annoying sounds. We just filter them out. ^^

Also, hammer must have been on my mind because I said MC Cherry and they are MX Cherry.

I also got Evil Within, Alien Isolation and Sleeping Dogs on PS4. I think I'm about halfway through EW and enjoying this game so much. Probably my favorite game so far this year. It really plays like a spiritual sequel to RE4. Though, I can imagine new generation of gamers(or anyone unfamilair with earlier survival horror and RE4) being somewhat put off by the oldschool design and mechanics of the game.

yup, I was thinking the same thing. People said the game was extremely hard and unfair.... I laugh at that! It just means they really suck at bullet management. But, then I beat all the RE games with just the knife and under 2 to 3 hours.
