Kagero Deception 2:

Stupid story, good but ultimately repetitive gameplay. Short but has several endings.

Another Code:

Short and easy, nice music and graphics (for DS). It's sometimes refreshing to play a game without enemies to defeat.

Chrono Trigger DS:
Same as it ever was (which means kickass), with an interesting but time-consuming arena mode. The Dream Devourer bonus boss is a right bitch, and I still haven't beaten it.

I thought it was based on the movie that's why I never played it cause i hate licensed games

It was not. Hella cameos from Marvel, fucking Matt Murdok, Bullseye, Iron Man, Kingpin. Nick Fury, Black Widow, and some more. Pretty badass too.

... Resident Evil

No..not 5, not 4, not the GC remake..not even the directors cut..simple RE from 1996.

Dont ask me why but i like to show my GF old games and especially how some popular series which she also likes started. And so i played this fine old game again trough...and will probably do the same with RE2 soon.

Resident Evil is a Horror Survival Game made by Capcom for the Sony Playstation in 1995. You can choose between 2 S.T.A.R.S Members which had the order to investigate some obscurre murder cases where victims...were partially eaten. There is Jill, the maste rof unlocking and Chris..the guy with the steven seagal eyes in the intro and you have to kill a lot zombies in a mansion. Yarr i m not good at writing reviews of popular games.

Game is great if you happen to like arcadey-esque, 3rd person shooters, mission objectives were a bit hard to figure out, Co-Op is great with voice chat and abilities are cool. Will be starting to practice online (got my ass kicked tonight :( ) anyone else play this on PSN?

Man Hunt 2
Such creative ways to kill a person. Although I expected the last level would be a little more than that, but it's still fun overall.


Mass Effect 2
The game is only fun once, it does have great plot, characters,  but the gameplay is really lacking. You just run-cover-shoot-cover-shoot-repeat, let alone have few skills that only 1-2 you would use. Once you played through this, you played it all kind of feel. Even the conversations is dull, yeah you have options but very few, hell I don't even think it affects the gameplay.

And does Lost Planet 2 play like Mass Effect 2? I've always had a feeling that it does.

Liked how Travis gained more dimensions beyond "jackass assassin guy", building on the first game a bit. Still lots of fun, even if the bosses were (IMO) the only remotely difficult part of the levels. Loved playing as other people. Oh, and the Peony kicks ass.

That is all.

Nier

I only bought it to take advantage of a 2x1 sale as it looked very half way done from videos and stuff but damn is it a good game. Graphics are indeed impressive for a ps2 yet very lowsy for a ps3 but the game is very fun and simple with a bloody great story after you finish the game once (before that you have no idea of how deep the story actually goes) the few final fights/sequences were some of the best ive ever played. Just remember to set the game on hard from the start for a somewhat decent challenge and an easier drop grinding.

Finished disgaea 3 story mode a couple days ago but i cant say im even close to beating the whole game due to its hardcore grindy nature.

Fallout: New Vegas. PC Version

A great game similar to Fallout 3, with a lot of options to choose your path (Karma AND Factions) and a big map to cover. Customized weapons FTW (though in Fallout 3 there was an unofficial mod that allowed that). The game sometimes is hilarious (heck, I found Indiana Jones inside that fridge LOL). Story is a little bland, though. Oh yeah, and A LOT OF BUGS.

If you can handle the bugs and CTD, you will enjoy it. Be sure to save a lot so you don't lose anything because of all the problems the game has.

It takes a few cheats to make the game more enjoyable, the showguns mode has the guns models showing up all over the girl body( like they should) the gore mode allows any finishing move to be a dismemberment, instead of the 1 in 20 kills is a dismemberment thing. It allows for way better stuff going on as your blades are then able to cut off arms and legs while the opponents are still alive. ( I loled at the feral vampires regrowing them)

Dead Rising 2

It is ridiculously, shamelessly over-the-top, but that's why it works.  There is nothing that is not fun about charging through a crowd of zombies with a lawnmower blade strapped to the top of your head.  The weapon combo system is a lot more fun than the photography in DR1.  The boss battles could have used a little more variety in terms of strategy, though.

Sonic the Hedgehog - in the PS2 compilation named Sonic Mega Collection +

So much memories. Kinda hard to get used to it again since there's no spin dashing nor any friends (tails, knuckles), but hey, I wanna play them in their order of release.
It really helps that they added a "save" feature to save your progress in the middle of the game. Only thing is that saving and charging is not instantaneous and takes a few seconds each time, which is a shame. Gonna play Sonic 2 tonight. :)

Star Wars: Empire At War

Two words: HOLY SHIT. An RTS that takes place between Episodes III and IV, you can either play as the Rebellion, or conquer all as the Galactic Empire. This game relies on what your next move is, whether it might bring you victory, or utter defeat. If you are short on time while playing the Campaign mode, you can save in the middle of a fierce battle, space or land, and the next time you play it, start off where you left off.  Online play is very nice as well. So, if you are a fan of Star Wars and Real Time Strategy games, then I would recommend this game.

It's definitely better than GoW3 (Not graphics wise) alot of replay value, it's a game you have to love or hate, really..

Megaman Battle Network

I can say right off the bat that the anime did not do this series any justice. The chip selection had room for improvement (which thankfully was fixed in MMBN2) but otherwise a fun game nonetheless, combining classic Megaman feel with RPG elements. Also the replay value after you beat the game by unlocking the additional internet areas and the optional bosses (as well as getting all the chips just to kick Bass's ass) is gonna keep you busy.

Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology

There's hardly storyline, too many missions that are similar and bothersome (and you need fame that you get from completing them to obtain storyline missions :-\), the AI is so dumb that it puts priority to his commands and not yours (to the point of a healer ignoring your request for a gel to attack an enemy >:() and not using items at all...

They were right, the first game from PSP of Tales of series was really bad. Gotta sell it now to feel I didn't waste money at all.

Bionic Commando (2009):
Fucking awesome, but over too soon.
Nostalgiafags made the game tank, and GRIN shut down as well. Lack of sequel makes me pissed at obsessive Capcom fanboys.

White Knight Chronicles:
Singleplayer is a meh, really easy and repetitive bullshit fest that ends too soon while ending on what should be half the game.
Online multiplayer makes up for it. Jesus fuck. It's amazing. (When there's people on, anyway. ;~;)

Surprisingly shorter than I expected it to be, but overall a good play. The gameplay was pretty nice, and the things fanboys whine about ("Samus has issues!"/"She's taking orders easy!") are easily explained and at least a little justified in-story. I recommend it.

Megaman Battle Network 2 -
Overall, the gameplay is much more refined than the first, and the addition of the style change offers alot more variety such as elemental charge shots. Kinda disappointed that Capcom kinda pulled a Necron (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Final_Fantasy_IX) at the end with the main villain, and the Gater program advance could have used a nerf, but still a good game overall.

Saints Row 2

Ronin was my favorite storyline, wish I had saved it for last and even though the main character is your create-a-character, I felt extremely attached to them at the end (something I usually only feel with pre-designed main characters). Great story, great voice acting, great characters (LOL PIERCE) and great gameplay, haven't tried co-op, though I want to. The ending left me craving more than just a sandbox mode at the end, plus it's sad I won't get to hear more badassery in the form of cutscenes from her anymore :(

Overall, it's an awesome game with great music, great visuals, great story, great sense of humour and a huge sense of adventure that just feels awesome.

I wouldn't say finished, but i'm doing things legally with a guest pass so my time is limited anyway

Starcraft 2

After the initial very very agravating install method (why must i patch before i play single player?) And running through all the shit i have to do to make what i'm doing legal (seriously, i see why people pirate) and i haven't bought anything new for ages which made all this worse.

I put it on normal, because i'm not really that fantastic at RTS although i enjoy it and... simplicity? A small squad of marines (not more than 6) and 2 medics and i can blow through the first 4 missions without any stress at ALL. In starcraft 1 i'd been killed in mission 4 and i had that on normal too. I shall persist until my guest pass runs out but although it's pretty, the challenge is lacking.

Except in the arcade shmup. That was actually hard.

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2.

It wasn't as bad as I was told and infact I thought the gameplay enhancements, new system of upgrading, and graphics were vastly improved. Big problem was the condensed story/MUCH shorter story on an already short first game, horrible corridor level design compared to the first(which had huge beautiful levels filled with flora) and the rather small amount of enemies to fight off.

Decent, with some flaws that ruined the game, like the inventory system, that just attacking is enough to beat even bosses (making skills worthless, though the damage they cause already made them useless, since weapon abilities, djinn and summons rock), puzzles suck as they're really easy... Also, hating the cliffhanger end. Did they have to do this just to announce that there will be a continuation?!

I dunno, I died to some silly shit from car crashes in the main game, but now during the DLC where you're timed and constantly rushing it seems to happen very, very, often. It's especially infuriating when your barely hitting 50 and clip a barrier inside a tunnel an die. Defiantly a good "What if GTA held to the actual rules of the road", but from actually experiencing it in a game, I'm glad it's not like that. Oh and car customization is purty kewl.

I recently finished Metro 2033, didn't know exactly what to expect when I started the game, but I came to fine it was some of the best things I enjoyed from previous games that fall into the apocalyptic "open" world genre. I write "open" in quotes because it is fairly linear, seeing as alot of the game takes place in fortified Metro stations, but when outside you have a bit of leg room to move around and it gives you a vast idea of how much detail and little things they did to make the world more lively. Defiant must for those who enjoy the Fallout and Stalker series.

Legendary

A FPS based on a whatif scenario if someone opened Pandora's box and unleashed hell on the world. Nothing really outstanding was found throughout the game and the Signet(the power given to the person who opens Pandora's box) was rarely used and uses were fairly stupid. Overall a boring unoriginal FPS, but the enemies were fairly cool to fight against...well for the first 5 chapters.

Don't know how I missed this post.  :ninja:

I completely agree, it's one thing that recent Fallouts have been missing, the idea that you're just a drone in a large world with all kinds of shit going on you just so happen to stumble upon. I don't know how many hours were spent just sitting around listening to the crowds, soldiers telling stories, and families going through the lost of a family member or friend who got caught in the evacuation of a overran Metro or had gotten lost while traveling between them and on the surface. If the next game has more of an open world that allows you to travel above ground at anytime you wish, it would easily be my GOTYAY.

No, the 360 one goes by a different name. Also, no again because if you liked the those games then the other one might not tickel your fancy since it uses the rules from the IRL card game.

Dead Space 2

A sequel that takes its formula to the logical extremes, with a supporting cast this time! It keeps you on your toes, whenever it's not trying to creep you out. The setpieces are fucking superb, and unique events are plentiful. Me + Force Gun 4ever

Warpath - Jurrassic Park

A 3D Fighting Game with Dinosaurs...and its works somewhat good. Where Primal Rage just wanted to be a Mortal Kombat with dinosairs maybe, the Jurrassic Park game has a very different approach withut special moves or something but at least some combination moves and throws. The graphics and the Music is good, the animations and presentation very good for the ps1 and for me the game was fun enough to play it trough multiple times to unlock some of the hidden dinos.

Elite Beat Agent (DS)
(http://dsmedia.ign.com/ds/image/article/743/743324/elite-beat-agents-20061101043440202.jpg)

A very cool rythm based game. You don't just need to hit the areas on the right time, you need to make some moves, like slides, and spins. If want a game to enjoy and laugh, go with this one.

Star Wars Force Unleashed II (XBOX360)
(http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_IeAtqo7LHDo/TMWqv6wXPQI/AAAAAAAAEyE/zYAy3dH3oa8/s1600/star-wars-the-force-unleashed-ii1.jpg)

A hack-and-slash SW game. Heavy inspired on God of War mechanics, its a good game, althought is kinda easy. A bit unbalanced: the game is easy but the challenges (that you unlock) are hard. A good game thought.

Hey no problem, an I agree on how hard the actual challenges are compared to the main games highest difficulty. Fucking impossible Platinum medals.  >:(

I finally finished Darkest of Days an it really never improved and the frame rate bugs continued to bog the game down, especially when at the end your taking on constant futuristic enemies and new heavily armored one with arm mounted Gatling guns an Rocket Launchers. They even threw in a new gun and location that were both incredibly interesting, but due to problems mentioned toke the awesome right out of it. Bad game none the less and was made even worse with how the dev team were wanking each other off in the "secret mission" about how much work was put into this game.  ::)

James Bond 007: Blood Stone

I really liked this third person cover shooter, take downs and stealth options through levels were fun, but one thing that I can't get over is how terrible nearly all the chases were, none toke advantage of gadgets and just came down to "catch them" or wreck their car. All in all not bad and worth a play for any Bond fan.

Dead Space 2.

Loved it, combat greatly improved over the original and the zero gravity sections are much better. Voice acting was pretty good too. Enemy variety was a bit crappy though, nearly all of them were the same from the original with a few new ones and the final boss was total bullshit. Multiplayer is fun so far, top player on the few matches that i've played, seems like everyone else sucks at shooting limbs and doing objectives :P

If you get in the right mindset it's easy to get nervous and even scared. You have a good chance of going "OH FUCK" multiple times, especially the harder the difficulty. You might have guns, but without ammo Kinesis will only get you so far.  >:D

I finished Vanquish the other night and despite having NO IDEA ABOUT THE STORY AGAIN(beginning to see a trend with Platinum's games and not understanding jack shit of the story), but easily how fluid and fun the gameplay was makes up for it tenfold. Hoping for a seqel.

Well in most shooters the worse death you have to worry about is a bloody screen or falling over dead. Necro's rip, tear, and mutilate your entire body and on the higher difficulty's them getting close almost guarantee's your death where you can usually have time to breath during heavy firefights via cover.

Dino Crisis (psx)
actually I finished this one many years ago but I tried twice again lately (in easy mode, normal mode is just as awesome as a kick in the balls).  but it still is a classic survival game by capcom, many memories and much fun collecting medicines to make poison darts. still haven't found the 3rd final though...

Snow Bros JR. (gameboy)
Thanks to the almighty power of save states, I've finished this in less than dunno.. 3 hours (I know it's a shame). I've played the arcade version long ago (and finished it on mame) but this gb version of the game isn't that different as regards gameplay, still a real masterpiece imho ( omg the ost is like keygen music  (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zOJ6TZak5oE)). I've been also surprised by the final sequence of the game which relates to the cult of the Sun. Does anyone know where I can find the OST for this game?

Super Mario World (snes)
everyone knows it, nuff said

GTA 4
(ps3)
lol, it's like I finished it because I'm using cheats on it.
I hate this game because it makes me hate people coming from east Europe. also who cares about ragdolls fx when there aren't organs popping out of the victims after an explosion. damn human-like puppets.


now I feel frustrated: I'm tempted to start Devil May Cry (ps2) again in normal/hard difficulty but I know it will be a pain in the ass. yeah, I'd like to complete it at 100% but I know I have to sell my soul to the Devil that will laugh instead.

Chuck Norris: Bring on the pain (Mobile game by Gameloft)

100% Based on the popular CNFacts, this is a tongue-in-cheek game with no other intention for you to kick ass playing as Chuck Norris. I liked it, I lol'd, I noticed they mimicked and sometimes even retraced over Capcom and  SNK sprites for Chuck's special attacks, I got hooked, I finished all levels in 1 day :P

After a few years I've finally finished the main game. I loved it, even if the difficulty levels for places skyrocketed out of no where. Now onto the DLC's, even though I've been told Zombie Island was for earlier in the main quest and I'll be overleveled the entire time running through it.

I also finished Raven Squad last week and man was it bad. I had a strong belief that it would eventually get good and the RTS element would come into play more often, but there was maybe 2 times throughout the story it was "vital". Top onto that, HORRIBLE voice acting and a fairly boring story made it a snore to playthrough.

Think of this as Battlefield and Call of Duty together. That's all it is pretty much. Single Player is run-of-the-mill action like CoD, and Multiplayer is open and vast like BF. Story is great, but the whole package feels lacking to milk the consumer of cash because of console limitation. XBOX IS KILLING GAMING its already dead.

Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime

Only played coop so no real story while playing it, outside of text between characters in each level. Fairly fun, but can see some odd difficulty spikes when you least expect it, like Blue Gargoyles that can take you down in a single ground pound that are already faster then you, yet also has slombies that can slow you down making it easier to take you out. Still pretty fun game with friends and not bad for only 10$. Only true disappointing thing for me was the fact NONE of the original Ghostbusters are playable, make cameos or anything, not even the rookie from the first game makes an appearance. Perhaps this happens during the comic in SP, but guess I'll have to wait and see.

Dragon Age 2

I have no qualms with the modernization of the combat system (is not as big a deal as people think it was going to be; it actually takes the old Bioware action rpg formula to it's logical conclusion), and I love the greater focus on politics and personal tragedy. However, the recycled environments are irksome, and Act 3 is a gauntlet of ass pulls. Still a great game though.

The Third Birthday

Developer Hexadrive is probably to blame for the game's failure to realize it's full potential. It's a real shame too, because shooting is some of the best on the PSP, but shitty enemy mechanics ruin the experience. The story is pretty gaiden-ish as it pertains to the first to games. Wouldn't recommend it.

Zone of Enders 2

Fantastic game. It is one of the best mecha games I have ever played. The story was meh and the voice acting was lulzy but the gameplay is fun as hell.

Chaos Legion

It was made by the guys that made DMC. The gameplay is fun and all as you get to summon different types of soldiers to help you out (which they do) but you can get lost in the story easily. The end boss can be pretty hard, but once you get your final legion back you might as well be in god mode since the rest of the game becomes easy as hell. Voice acting is also pretty bad, even cringe worthy.

Front Mission 4

the story kinda pointless, I never knew why did  the republic of Zaftra infiltrate venezuela, and some of the new backpack feature are only useful for the enemy, like the radar backpack. it is very annoying when multiple enemy units has it and suddenly all missilers can shoot all their missiles to our team in one turn creating absurd damage, while the backpack is heavy and the unit who carries it is most likely expendable with light body setting and light machine gun, while we can't afford to have a scout unit like that since we only have 6 units, while the opponent can have multiple scouts with this backpack, anyway I hardly have any cassualties, only on the last battle I lost 2 members from la allianza, because I forgot to upgrade their wanzers on the last shop since I thought the game was already ended.

Really fun horror game. The atmosphere is constantly tense, with numerous nifty ways to spook the player. My only gripe is that the humanoid monsters eventually become...predictable. You're bound to notice a universal pattern they follow, meaning it's piss easy to avoid contact with them. Still, I highly recommend Amnesia to anyone who craves for an unusual approach to the horror genre.

Here's a tip. On chapter 11(its exactly where you were in the beginning of the game) looks towards the right side where the second catwalk is and there should be some sort of peng treasure, grab it with your kenises. That's one thing that I missed in my first playthrough.

So THAT'S the Peng treasure! I read it on the achievements, and couldn't figure out what the reference was about ("who's Peng, and why the fuck am I 2 steps away from finishing the game without knowing who it is?!")

Although in the begining of Chapter 9 or 10, where you find the Movie Posters in the entrance, you can see the movie poster for "There's something about PENG" and I thought it might be related to that :O ... so I started trying to apply KINESIS on it, and shoot the damn thing and nothing happened :P

The story was actually good but i still hate that you could not kill pedestrians it would have been alot more fun if i could.
It also would have been fun to be able to search random people out on the streets. Hopefully if they do plan on making another one they could add that stuff to it and maybe a nice online mode kind of like GTA or Red Dead Redemption where you can work together in cases that you and your team or partner have to solve.

Infamous:finished heroic story line on hard and it was great.4 shards left but I don't give a shit anymore >:(. Doing the evil playthrough now and Sasha rants make alot more sense now.

Deus Ex 2:Not as bad as everyone painted it ,but it wasn't as great as the original for sure. Maps don't feel as large or epic,universal ammunition and removal of RPG elements kills it.
Do you need to erase the save? Or is there any option to start from the beginning? Cant pass some of those shitty uplink race missions( 3 ) .

Amazing series entries, disappointing protagonist. I still miss the 3 men squad system but PSP can't handle it apparently, the difficulty curve is spot on, though some level tend to be designed to completely shut down no upgrade runs, no big deal. Not as good as Z but still great. 8.5/10

L.A.Noire

I think people need to understand that this is not a sandbox game. the huge world is there just to give the feeling of you actually being a cop in Los Angeles. Its overall really good. The story, the atmosphere, the dialogue, the puzzles and the fact that its not all about blowing peoples brains in. I recommend it to everyone who is looking for breath of fresh air in games.

The last mission was rather silly though.

[size=3pt]And its a fucking long game[/size]

edit: just beat prototype. In terms of mad sandbox fun its all you can really ask for and the combat is good. But the missions just leave a bad taste in my mouth (boss fights in particular start out boring and go into just being shit). Its overall alright.  I guess.

I like Infamous more.

I wish i had a PS3 ;-;

Edit again (wtf? is no one else playing anything?): Finished condemned: criminal origins.

I absolutely love this game. Its scary, brutal, gritty and it still plays like a charm. I highly recommend

I wish it was longer.

The jak series


never got around to really playing it like i wanted to but finally did

the first one was zeldaesque then i played the second one and went 'holyshitgtainthisbitch' which was cool

then the third one which still kept that vibe but went back to the more fantastic elements of the 1st and also added monster trucks fucking a

all in all a great series but daxter is annoying as shit i get it hes supposed to be that way and all but hes reeeally annoying almost annoying as issun which is remarkable

Woefully short, clocking in at about 2 hours including all the optional puzzles, and it's just not as funny or charming as its predecessor. 90% of the puzzles are still easy as piss, so stick to the Prof. Layton series for a real puzzle fix.

Pokemon Black

Best game since the original release of Gen2, if not the best period.
A villain team I can actually hate (the only instance I can think of in five gens of playing where one witnesses a villain team physically abuse a Pokemon), a team boss that's actually fairly competent, and a plot that's actually slightly deeper than "get badges, beat evil team"?  Please sir, can I have some more?

My only gripe, and it's one that I've had since Gen3, is I miss a real rival.  Having friendly rivals is nice, and Gen5 did it pretty well, but I miss having a rival I actually want to beat the shit out of.

gen 4 remains supreme.

E.Y.E : Divine Cybermancy

Awesome hardcore indie FP(S?)RPG with lots of content. Think Warhammer 40,000K, Blade Runner and Deus Ex all blended in. You can shoot, slice, cast magic, hack OR stealth your way through any level, and being able to dual wield a pistol and a sword is just plain awesome. A few complaints are that there are no civilians in the game and the levels feel a bit empty with no items to loot, the writing and dialogue is pretty bad in English with the developers being French and all.

Metroid Other M:
I really enjoyed the game, despite having too many cutscenes which are impossible to skip, I've took ours playing and trying to figure item locations.
My remote's battery started to fail several times and specially in boss battles which is pretty tough. Don't cared so much about the story being good or bad, at least they could provide the options to have japanese dialogue with english subs. My hand shake involuntary when I'm holding objects for long time, so it was pretty difficult to aim with the wii remote, but I managed to finish the game anyway.

Waaaay better ending, hell it was tough to keep pressing R1 in that final sequence. I dunno if it was on purpose how the good side final boss was so tough and the evil ending was so easy (i played both runs on hard difficulty).

Borderlands

I'm quite satisfied with this game. After finishing the story I'm hoping for something similar in Borderlands 2. However the game is really glitchy and has a lot of game breaking stuff. Also the online mode could use some extra stuff, like match making and some extra modes. Hopefully they'll also tone down on the grinding in Borderlands 2. As it stands the first game doesn't have much replay value for most people. But I enjoyed it a lot nonetheless. Now I'm gonna play the online modes for a while and some of the DLCs.

I had so much fun playing this game. Did all the quests for each of the guilds.
I haven't finished every single quest and there's probably some more.
Finished the Nights of the Nine a few days ago.
I was mostly using the glitch bound armor that looks like Daedric armor.
I still haven't played the Shivering Isles DLC. Is it worth it?

Portal

Pretty much done, with the exception of the challenges (don't feel like taking them on). It was a fun experience nonetheless. Kept me engrossed enough to clear out the entire story mode in one go (which is admittedly short, but the bonus content makes up for it). All in all, an interesting and refreshing contribution to puzzle games.

Tomb Raider Anniversary.
Camera is bad aligned with the character(sometimes gets confusing), so when you press certain command, it makes whatever it wants...¬¬.
Aside that it's a fun game, with good puzzles and etc. Bosses are epic(fat lava bastard is fun, tho, xD). Some people finds this game kinda disrespectful with the TR1(Anniversary is a remake), but after playing both games...I'm with the remake :D!

Dead Rising 2

This game is tight. My only complaint is how you're forced into an item gathering quest for TK before being allowed to confront him; I find that segment dull and redundant. Other than that, good story, interesting repertoire of side missions, and a wide custom weapons selection.

inFAMOUS 2

Got the good ending first, then went back and did an evil playthrough.  Probably should have reversed that, because evil is so much easier than good.  Even on a higher difficulty, I breezed through the evil side in half the time it took me to finish the good one.

Silent Hill Origins

Apart from the stupid "fragile weapon" system (which is worthless because there's tons of weapons around), a stupid camera doing some annoying things and the not-so-great grapple events, the gameplay is okay. Unfortunately, they sacrificed the character and story for that. I cannot like the character when he's emotionless even after being confronted with his past, if I compare it to other main characters like in Silent Hill 2 when they have some emotional breakdowns. And the story is really weak, and feels like they're forcing me to play a whole game just to show what could have been resumed in few lines.

In conclusion, I don't recommend this game, which is a disappointment in the whole Silent Hill series. Go read what it is about in the wiki and you're done. No need to spend money for this.

Well, I found it boring. I was expecting to see more stuff about Alessa, but hey, two dungeons were only about the main character, and his reactions were totally dull and repetitive (not really tragic when he encounters and kills his parents but then shouting like crazy each time he grabbed that damn piece. I'm sorry but I couldn't sympathize with the character). One had nothing to do with anything, just small comments saying "Hey, she was there in the past" but that's it. Even the hospital didn't feel like it had anything to do with Alessa, only that "She stayed there for a moment".

Also, one thing I like about the Overworld is that it suddenly comes and you can't escape from such thing. But in here, you can decide if you want to go or not, which takes away the feeling of "Oh god, here it comes!" that I normally get when the world starts to change. Yeah sure, in the end it forcefully comes, but in the end when you're equipped with nearly all the weapons in the game, which is worthless.

God of War 3: Without a doubt the greatest action game ever created; it's only real flaw is being a bit too short IMO. Cool story, superb graphics, silky smooth gameplay, awesome music, epic boss battles and an ending that I'm sure shocked everyone that thought they knew Kratos. In the words of Adam Sessler "if you own a PS3, you need to get this game. If you don't own a PS3, you need to get one and you need to play this game!"

Ogre Battle 64: Person of Lordly Caliber

It's an good and sorely underrated SRPG/RTS with an 80 hours long story mode, multiple classes like dragons, golems, monsters, dozens of human jobs and a relatively "deep" approach in the social events that trigger a war, like the economic inequality. Most of the late game action is "let's stop badguy x from using an ancient power/magic to blow the world", though.

There are 3 endings depending on the decisions you make (which also determine which special characters join your army), being obviously the good ending (you become king); the standard ending (the leader you served is crowned and you become a royal knight); and the bad ending (your country gets wiped off from existence by barbaric tribes). My favorite is the bad ending because of the exclusive final battle.

Crysis -- on the PS3, lolololo.

Given Crytek's generosity, I was able to get a gist of what PC elitists felt with this title, and God was it exhilarating. For starters, the aesthetics were very good for a port, and frame rate was fine overall (yet had some slowdowns from aiming a cloaked ACOG, an issue still prevalent in Crysis 2). I could also notice some glittering here and there, but that's rare.

Furthermore, my favourite thing about this game is the variety; one could sneak by without notice, kill KPA soldiers with thrown objects (like chickens, LOL), storm in guns blazing (provided you're not asinine) or simply take delight in how absolutely powerful the sniper feels. Finally, my only real gripes with Crysis is it lacking the multiplayer component, getting stuck between geometry and how fucking frustrating a particular alien level was.

8/10 -- a truly solid purchase worth below half the daily price. :beamgoi:

-Warhammer: Dark Omen

probally the 1st game who invented the Total War Style of RTS, its a great game

the history, the strategies and your arsehole in your hand every time when your units are screwed(or when you lost them in the battle and you cant use them anymore) or the map is made only for the enemy (Kislev's 1st map or Sylvannia's region)

if you're looking for a good and old strategy game without the bullshit of base building and single units, and where your descisions can cost the life of your regiments and your gold coins

Dark Omen its your game

-Transformers: War for cybertron

Good game, they managed to use not only the G1 to BM main Timeline, but also Animated(Starscream Literally sister/clone Slipstream), Comics and Armada

This is the kind of game that if you play it you will say: Fuck the Reviews this game is Awesome!

Mass Effect 2

First let me say that I have a deep fondness for this game. The graphics, gameplay, sound effects, voice overs, and story make me feel like I'm playing a role in my own sci-fi movie. The game managed to piss me off a bit at the end though because (CAUTION SPOILERS AHEAD) giving me the freedom to do what missions I want when I want, was cool, but being punished for it by having almost the entire abducted crew get liquefied was a bit off putting (I liked those guys, especially the chef). I usually try not to play games using faqs or guides so I can discover everything for myself...Won't be doing that for Mass Effect 3, though.

All in all it's a great game and my complaints above are minor when compared to everything else. It gives me another reason to replay the game anyway.

PS: Never before have I had such impure thoughts for a fictional character, before Miranda Lawson...that is all.

Best sonic game ever. You have 3 different variations of a stage from the start, the present time, the past and the future. Now depending on whether or not you destroy robniks machine generator in the past determines the present time and the future(good or bad). Thats 5 different themed levels/music for a fucking stage. Robotnik has the greatest theme hes ever had in any sonic game ever (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i2eYmfkFN5U).

This is probably the first sonic game where i actually paused and try to find everything in a stage. Also enjoyed all the themes, the music in this game is fantastic

Assassin's Creed 1 (Came with Revelations.)

The gameplay itself was better, and I enjoyed the awesome variety of weapons and upgrades and there was a definite increase in general hilarity over 2. Still a great game.

Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3

LOL yeah, I finally found the motivation of beating all characters story modes. But still, 12 new characters, 8 new stages and spectator mode seems like quite a BS move from Capcom to obtain more money for things that could have been released as DLC, yet were released as a game. Don't know if the new DLC mode is good, haven't bought it, but I still wish they release a Tournament mode :(

Not really, because personally, from all the characters released, I was only interested in Phoenix Wright and Vergil. I played the others and yeah, they're okay, but I only used them once (for the story mode) and that's it. Do you buy all DLC characters even if there's one you're not interested at all? It's a waste of money IMO.

And hey, Tournament mode is great if you go with a lot of friends and organize a tournament. I have fun doing this with my friends at university with Super Street Fighter 4.

AC brotherhood

Super short story, beat it in a day and a half and I wasn't even focusing on the main missions. I got Rome 100% restored and all my assassins were at Max level. Btw I love my little assassins <3.

Graphics are ok considering the game is about 2 years old but WTF story mode runs like it's not going the speed it should. Alot of slow downs and unequal frame speeds. Looks really choppy at times as if it were going 30fps instead of 60fps. Oh Gawd multiplayer though.. fucking incredible. No slow downs and it runs fucking perfect. The net code is beautiful I haven't experienced any lag what so ever. Its also pretty fucking intense. Haven't had so much fun playing a multiplayer game of this magnitude of skill since counter strike

Overall, I give this game a 70/5 stars. Another huge plothole at the end, think its probably my favorite out of the 3. Well.. now its time to go back and get 16s hidden message( how the fuck does this work btw? Did he leave them in your mind? Can't be in the animus since its a completely new one). My bitch ass friend also has my acr I need to get that shit back asap before I lose this interest I have over the series >_>

Deus Ex: Human Revolution

Easily one of the best games I've ever played. Great story that kept me involved the entire time, flexibility when it comes to problem solving, interesting repertoire of augmentations to choose from, and most importantly, the endings. None of them can be straightforwardly classified as good or bad. It's up to the player to decide which point of view he agrees with.

Only issue I have is the hilariously abusable NPC AI, but I suppose a game can't be perfect in every regard.

The katana got the job done though. I like the game, but not so much the story. I think SH2 is still the best, I'm gonna try the other ones soon.

Ys: The Oath In Felghana

The only thing I knew about the Ys series before playing this is that the music was always awesome and so it was in this game as well. In fact the music kinda kicked me to play it for longer sessions than I usually do nowadays with any other game (The famous "Until the next savepoint, then I'll go to sleep" situations where instead you keep playing the game). No wonder the series is known for having some of the best videogame music ever composed.

Music aside I loved the fast paced gameplay and whatnot. Game's definitely fun from the beginning to the end and the bosses are awesome (Not a single one of them are defeated via sheer force, you always need certain strategy to dodge attacks and to attack them) and the RPG bullshit you often see is not aggravating here at all.

Oh right, game's REALLY hard on normal mode in some points (Mainly bosses). Shows you the difficulty we had back in 2005 when this game was released. And the game has 3 HARDER difficulties as unlockables D:

So yeah, I'm officially a Ys fan from now on. Totally waiting for Ys Origins to arrive on steam. I regret nothing :)

Battlefield 3 SP

You know. It's really sad that they but so much work into the multiplayer instead of this because with some work and a shitload of bugfixing it could have been actually good. It has pretty good writing, fantastic tech and some really good moments. If it had used the gadgets and destruction physics for more tactics oriented gameplay (and was about twice as long) it could have been actually good.

But no, right now it's a 5 hour corridor shooter with a few flimsy vehicle sections and lots of QTE's. Fuck you dice.

Yakuza Dead Souls.

Quite a disappointing game. It's a decent game, but not enough to be called good. You're better off grabbing either Left4Dead or Resident Evil if you want to play a good zombie game. In fact, this game lost part of the charm that had in previous Yakuza games. For example, all sidequests are about shooting zombies, and Akiyama is not as fun and awesome as he was in Yakuza 4. Also, the aiming option is worthless except for boss/mutant fights. You're going to spend the entire game going with a shotgun (or any weapon except machine and submachine guns) and shooting while running. That's the best way to handle everything.

tl;dr, this is a game for fans of Yakuza series. If you're a fan of zombie games, you want to skip this. And if you're not a fan of neither of them, you'll probably get bored in some parts.

Cave Story (DSiWare)

PRE-TWO-LINE REVIEW: I remember I got introduced to this game years ago when me, Titiln, and Jared did Stage Wars. Among the entries, Hoshi entered a stage using elements from the Balcony section (his was from the freeware PC version), and although he didn't win, Jared and I both got interested in the game. Then I forgot about it. And then a week ago I found it while browsing the DSiWare section of the Nintendo E-Shop, remembered the funtimes, and downloaded it.

After playing it, the gameplay and scenario are excellent, and while the jumps felt too floaty initially, I don't think I could imagine the game working as well without them. Due to the way the story is set up, I actually found myself tearing up at the Balcony scene, HIDDEN TEXT HERE==>where you have to shoot innocent Mimigas that ate the Red Flowers amd are now rampaging to kill you, the music perfectly capturing the feel of a weary-soldier on the last leg of the game.

Prototype 2

Better and more simple gampeplay than the first, story is just as bland but a bit better written, graphics are much better, cutscenes are great, only thing i missed was a huge boss battle, like elly greene from the first game. Final boss is terrible, weak and underwhelming. Still its a great open world game.

Umm tough question, i guess this boss has more meaning but the battle itself is way more boring, even on hard all i did was jump-tendrill-jump-tendrill, it restarts 3 times but doesnt pick up at all, its the exact same battle al three times, the supreme hunter was at least a bit more chaotic and a good challenge on hard, especially those last 30 seconds.

Imo its worse.

It's similar to God of War III as far as the last boss goes. It's more skillful and graceful than most bosses in games, but ultimately it's pretty easy.

Well thinking back the last boss of GoW III was pretty tough, if only because of the 2d stage of it (I didn't upgrade any weapons except the Blades is why it was tough, didn't upgrade Cestus).

I think some artwork was redrawn, and you can access the inventory on the touch screen, but outside of that, it's a pretty faithful port I hear. The 3DS version has more cameos and easter eggs, but I'm not spending $40 for 3D.

As an experience, the first was better, but as a game this blew it out of the water.  So much harder, more fun, better level design and all those callbacks to old Mario games.  I blew my load hard at Throwback Galaxy.  Ending was nice and cute too.

Warriors Orochi 3

After 2 days i played it trough and on the third day i also got all stages and characters, spend a few more days to try out all the characters. While those are done really good, the gameplay itself feels more repetitive than in any other Dynasty and Samurai Warriors games, even Warriors Orochi 1 and 2 were interesting for me for a longer time. I recommend renting for a weekend or buying it for a good deal.

Well , read it was only sold digitally on PSN in the USA..for ps3 and the fullprize will be the same even after months. Here in europe its avaiable already for 40 euro and probably less

Sonic Generations (PC)

To Start off Fuck Crisis City, Fuck Sonic the Hedgehog 2006, and Fuck Silver.

The final boss fight was second worst Sonic game final boss ever Classic Sonic is useless and there is like no reason to use him in it, Rings seemed to be non-existent or where hard to see, the worst part defiantly had to be "look out it's a *insert what final boss is doing here*" "watch out" every 5 seconds i have eyes and you said it already i don't need you to point it out every god damn time he does it.
Planet Wisp was stupidly designed it has some of the best Music in the game to bad you can only hear it in 5 seconds intervals between 'Spike" or "Rocket" followed by crappy power up music.

I really liked the game it was a nice mix of Classic Sonic and Modern Sonic voice acting wasn't to spectacular though, Really enjoyed Rooftop Run(Spagonia) even more as Modern Sonic loved the part of the level where you could just boost for quite a bit since Rooftop Run was my favorite level in Unleashed it was nice to see it was still fun to play, overall i liked playing as Modern Sonic more than Classic is something wrong with me?

Disgaea 3 Absence of Detention:

The VITA version, basically. I'm quite sad they didn't implement the "Fusing Monsters" system and the Professor class from Disgaea 4, I thought they were awesome features. There's still hope for the second in a DLC, but it's impossible for the first to happen. Apart from that, the new stories and characters are okay, I guess. Not really that special. The thing I basically appreciate is that I can play Disgaea 3 on a portable console now. Disgaea 3 was a good game IMO, and since this is basically a port to the PSVita, it's as good as the PS3 version, with extras included.

Diablo III

on normal difficulty at least, I actually started a different character (demon hunter) and my friend made a different character (wizard) and we ran through the game like that, this combo is really difficult to complete the game with because there is no one to tank and it all comes down to how well you can dodge shit. The game was sufficiently difficult (anyone who says this game is easier than Diablo 2 is full of shit) and the story and cinematics were awesome. Great game, worth every penny. Gonna do Nightmare, Hell and Inferno difficulties soon too.

Phoenix Wright: Trials and Tribulations

An excellent palate cleanser to wash the sour taste Jusice for All left in my mouth (the final case is the only thing I find good about the sequel). Three great cases, a cool backstory that ties a lot of the events together, many likable characters, a pleasant to the ear soundtrack, and the very idea of letting you play as other people (Edgeworth's segment could have been a little longer imo, I thouroughly enjoyed curbstomping Franziska in court) is what makes Trials and Tribulations so fantastic.

I'm kinda on the fence atm whether I should proceed to Miles Edgeworth Investigations (which would make sense as far as the timeline is concerned) or wrap up the main series with Apollo Justice first, but I'm going to give it a break for the time being. Other games await me.

LIMBO

Despite it's length (finished the game in more or less five hours, but I'll be lenient in this regard since it's an indie release), it was fun while it lasted. The puzzles are of varying difficulty: most you'll easily figure out on your own, but there a few that will put your wits hard to work, as thinking outside the box becomes a necessity. I've mentioned this in the other thread already, yet it won't do any harm to state once more that Limbo's visual presentation is fantastic. As for the soundtrack, not many tracks play through the entire course of the game, but they build up the ambience nicely and complement the art style.

Overall, it's a good game and I highly recommend it.

Mortal Kombat - Komplete Edition

Wow..GBK..known for defending the MK series and its characters finally got the last MK over a year after release. And got the Komplete Version with everything onboard for a kompletly justified price of 36 € imported from UK. While i knew the Story mode already i was surprised it was relative well translated into german and i played it trough in around 4 hours only having problems a few times with Shao Kahn. Like many mentioned before, its probably the best done story mode for a fighting game ever with great graphics and soundeffects, and a relative good written story and a few loveable characters.

The game itself is definitive a big step above every MK its pure fun combined with a deep gameplay, very great atmosphere and a lot good characterdesigns. The one thing still missing in a MK game are more different character proportions and ranges. There are a lot things to improve, but for the first time since years i have the feeling MK is on par with the other big players of the genre.

I look forward to Netherealms future games

Battlefield 3

On of the best games ever made. I must admit that even if i'm a CoD boy, I really appreciated the story and how it turned out. After finishing the campaign, I then played the Multiplayer. I first tried out charging by myself like I always do in CoD but to no success. I always got outnumbered if not outmatched. And with a wide variety of guns at your disposal, it just screams awesomeness.

I once went to a local firing range here in my country and there I tried out a gun called "Saiga". When I saw the gun in the game, the first thing that I did was listen to the gunfire and compare it with the sound that I heard when I first used it in real life. It sounded perfectly and with that being said, it means that the makers of the game went all out into making this.

10/10

WWE`12 - Wrestlemania Edition

Beside MK Komplete Edition i also bought WWE`12 lately, i am against dlc and try to not support it so this version which has almost all the previous dlc content included was attractive for me, that it came for the price tag of only 29,95 euro made it an absolute nobrainer as well.

The game itself was not a big step above previous wwe games in my opinion, the big roster of relative current superstars divas, the many match types and online modes alone however are justifying the aqquiration of this version already. I wouldnt have bought it last year even for 50 euros though because of some flaws i cant forgive as a wrestling fan.

Some of the entrances are just copied from previous games, Mark Henry as example has still his entrance first seen in Smackdown 2009, the commentary is often the same as in previous years and it seems like some of the wrestlers got less detailed and worked on bodies than others. Alberto Del Rio`s face looks different from his real version while other wrestlers like Stone Cold seem almost photorealistic.

The Road To Wrestlemania Story is a mixed bag..i liked the previous versions more which gave the player multiple stories and was all in all longer.

WWE `12 Wrestlemania Edition gets 7/10 from me

Yeah me and my friend are at the end of Act 2 in Hell Mode, the funny thing is that the hardest things are the elites and not the bosses themselves, lots of fun to be had when you have to kite 1 group of tough as fuck elites and end up running into another. I hear Inferno is basically impossible without a certain amount of resists and health as most of the mobs there hit you for 100k+ :X

I think Act 2 is the hardest on all the difficulties.

An incredibly well built and beautiful game, but it felt...short. Granted I didn't do all of the side missions, and I'm not enough of a completionist to chase down all those damn Riddler Trophies, but I expected a little more from the main story. That's what I get for playing too many RPGs?

Final Fantasy XIII-2.

Everyone lately is always complaining about how it sucked and that it was even worse than XIII (even though they fixed literally everything that was supposedly wrong with XIII.)
I personally enjoyed the hell out of this game. It was fun, it had a lot going on, the story was interesting enough to keep me on my toes, the gameplay wasn't really new, but it felt more enjoyable and easier than XIII, the character development was great, the side quests were a real challenge and fun (and I haven't even fought anything at the coliseum, yet) and the ending was.....well, let's just say this DLC better be what I think it is otherwise I'm going to have to buy Final Fantasy XIII-3.

Max Payne 3

Amazing game, worthy sequel to the series. The gunplay, movement, physics and soundtrack are superb and Max evolves as a character throughout the game. The story does get a bit too rockstar-ish at times and manages to lose the noir theme for a while and there are too many cutscenes sometimes, but it's a minor complaint. The cover system in the game does not make it a boring cover-shooter, it's used mainly as a way to take cover from enemy gunfire while formulating a plan before emerging like a ballerina with a gun, orchestrating the death of foes with grace. Just don't shootdodge into a wall or you'll hit it hard and embarrass yourself.

The multiplayer is pretty fun as well, not the most balanced or thoughtful but it's hilarious shootdodging into a room from a window and taking out everyone.

Mass Effect 3

First of all: the nerd rage over the ending proves that, once again, nerd rage is completely retarded. Yes, it could use some clarification with regard to what everyone does in the aftermath, but come on... Anyway, EC will fix that, so let's wait and see. :)

As for the rest of the game: it was beautifully put together. It had some technical hiccups here and there (mostly volume dips and spikes for me), squad interaction felt a little weak in comparison to ME2, and I definitely felt less in control of the conversations, but the combat, skill trees, and epic set pieces were amazing. :)

I can't wait for EC and the other SP DLC(s) they have planned (though I don't see what they could possibly do). In the meantime, however, I'll be playing multiplayer. Geth Infiltrator + Claymore = unstoppable death.

Superbrothers: Sword and Sworcery EP

My main problem with this game is it's repetitiveness. Once you've collected the gold trigon, say hello to Groundhog Day, as you'll find yourself doing the same thing over and over, with not much new content added. Furthermore, the lack in diversity makes me question the point of the combat system. Sure, the trigon fight had a nifty gimmick to it...but recycling the concept twice? Really? Plain boring. Gotta say though, the idea of using the moon cycle as an important mechanic was pretty interesting.

What I genuinely liked about Superbrothers is it's sense of humour. On the surface the game tries to deliver a serious tale, but there's so much surreal moments and fourth wall breaking lurking about that make the somewhat tedious journey more bearable. Additional props go to Jim Guthrie for composing a good soundtrack.

To sum up, if you don't mind the backtracking and simplicity, give it a whirl. Otherwise you'll probably not like it.

Mortal Kombat Trilogy - ps1

Yes..seriously. Played the game yesterday a good while after many many years to make some screenshots for - of course -  a fan art tribute gallery. There are many old 2d fighting games which aged well, but MK Trilogy is not one of them. The graphics themself are still somewhat fine..the gameplay is..well..old but the problems which were problems back in 1996 already but were more or less a standard make it really hard to play now. Long loading times, a really weird AI which changes from super easy to super hard after every battle and the whole feeling like playing a bad mugen MK compilation make it difficult to enjoy this game now.

Koumajou Densetsu II: Stranger's Requiem

The game's a Touhou take on old school Castlevania games, as in the ones from before SotN. The game is as challenging as this suggests, and more importantly, it's fun as hell, save the second to last boss, who's just plain evil. The final boss is quite fun, though. I might post some screenshots from the game.

Split/Second

Pretty good racing game. Not bad for being a bit different from others. The multiplayer is pretty legit but it only supports two people offline unfortunately, but it's still fun. The races can be a bit difficult at times and the huge ass trucks are bs and seem way faster when racing against them then when using it yourself. -_- Seems like the sequel has been squashed for now but maybe one will be released on the PS4 or the ps3 before the end of it's cycle >_>

Left 4 Dead 2 w/ DLCs

The Sacrifice
The difficulty of this map is insane when it comes to the ending. Three tanks simultaneously, a dozen special infected (Damn Chargers), and a horde that can pretty much waste 50 minutes of your life. The map made me tense but at the same time, pleased. And oh my god Bill! :'(

The Passing
Map difficulty is pretty much toned down, easier than Hard Rain. I was surprised when I saw the L4D1 cast (excluding Bill) meeting the L4D2 cast. The map gives you too much support. (The boxes full of Pipe Bombs, Adrenaline, etc)And again, oh my god Bill. :'(

I guess it was fun in the end and together with the sidemissons, lasted me a good 10 hours, but fuck the collectibles. Why in Gods name do they even still have that shit and well over 700 of them!?

Saints Row The Third

When was the last time a game kept me glued to my monitor hours on end? In all honesty, I've never experienced a dull moment in this exceptionally humorous, over-the-top, bathshit insane gangsta story. You'll easily get sidetracked from the main plot by the wide variety of activities available and waste many hours just on messing around in the city. The character/gang customization is great too, with more options at your disposal as the game progresses. Also, futuristic technology. AND ZOMBIES.

Why are you still reading this? Go grab a copy now!

It's a good game, but has a plot I can't really like and with the worst ending I've seen in all KH games. I recommend playing it though, just try not to understand all the plot until you finish it.

Took me TEN months to beat thing hard son of a bitch. Takes quite a bit of patience and careful combat, but it's surprisingly enjoyable and pretty satisfying when you've beaten a really hard ass level. I love how you can create your own combos with whatever you like, and I REALLY like the "God" moves. If Dragon kicking someone into the fuckin' milkyway isn't a good time to you, seek help.

Anyway, A fun game, but a hard son-of-a-bitch.

Sengoku Basara 3: Samurai Heroes

Finally i got the time to play it trough with most of the characters to unlock all 16 ones.
The unlockable Oichi story is by far the best of them all, how it leads to reviving Nobunaga Oda is super sad and well written.

SB3 is a game like Dynasty Warriors, and about many characters during the feudal Japan era. These characters have all their different powers and play significantly different from each other, unlike the characters in most Koei games. There are multiple stories for the 16 characters, to unlock and see everything in this game you will probably need 100+ hours.

Its a great game to be played from time to time, all in all i would give it a 7,5 of ten and still hope for a Sengoku Basara 3 on this console generation which adds many of the SB 1 & 2 characters

Best third person game i ever played, awesome story-line (not comparing to 1 they say it was better). Not very scary ( i never get scared). difficult difficulty (those bastard immortal Necromorphs). I finished it in 2 or 3 days.
I got the game in Spain (Spanish menu, Spanish voices)so the expressions didn't match with the expression's of their voices so the technology they used for the expressions were for "nothing".

9\10 Spanish version

A little horror game called Ib. (pronounced "eeb", it's a misromanization of "eve")

It's been a long time since I played a game that was actually scary. Ib pulls it off with some extra. Got the second best ending when I played through, decided it wasn't worth experimenting with the dialog for the best ending. Also, I have to give extra points to the main villain having an actual developed motivation. Not just something like "Oh no, I have mommy issues, now I want to kill everything!" or "of course the best way to take over the world is to host a mixed martial arts tournament!" But yeah. Cool game.

Sleeping Dogs - It was a Awesome game in my opinion. The story was great with full of action but its not as long as a grand theft auto game would be but the game has a lot for you to do so you won't get as bored from having to do street racing, small side missions, underground fighting brawls, and cock fighting etc. From time to time you may see a bug or two but nothing to much to worry about. I still think the driving handling sucks just like the previous true crime games but they made it a little better by using the trigger button to accelerate instead of using the A or X button. I always had hated that A or X control configuration when it came to driving a car in games. The combat is awesome that's all that needs to be said on that part but honestly if you into open world action-adventure games i think it's worth the buy.

8.5/10

Edit: I'm hoping to see some extended story for DLC.

Portal 2 (single player campaign)

In every regard superior to it's predecessor. The story is engrossing and packed with surprising twists, all leading to a marvelous ending (the turret opera left me speechless). Puzzles are well-designed and vary in difficulty, although the truly baffling ones come late in the game. Personally, I didn't enjoy the gel section too much, it felt tedious and dragged out for me. Fortunately, you get to reunite with Wheathley after that and things start to get exciting again.

Now all that's left is to try out the co-op mode, which I will attempt asap.

The combat was really fluid and flowed nicely, and overall the gameplay was solid (well, except for the Sixaxis controlled bits, but those never worked for any game), but Jesus Jackrabbit Christ does this game end quickly.  As in "New game to end credits in less than a day" quickly.  I've played rhythm games that had a longer playtime than this.  Still a good game, however brief it may be.

Transformers: Fall of Cybertron

A step up from the previous game in terms of gameplay and story. I really like the implementation of RPG elements such as leveling up your weapons and abilities. Also really happy that they brought back Escalation (though they did remove the co-op campaign...) where I spend most of my time in the game, but compared to War for Cybertron's version of the game mode there's not really much of an improvement as some features like the upgrading system could have been implemented better.

Good game overall, but sill suffers from numerous glitches and graphical slowdown.

Metal Gear Solid 1 & 4.

1 is just as good as ever. Knowing some characters back stories and call backs in later games to the bosses made me appreciate it that much more. Only thing I missed while playing it was roll.

4 I loved every aspect of the gameplay, from gun, cqc and the different ways to finish each act. Nothing like helping the rebels when in an open warzone and hearing them cheer. I just wish they did a Directors Cut that shortened out the cutscenes.

Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney

A solid continuation of the series. I thoroughly enjoyed playing through all the cases, last one being my favourite due to how the investigation is laid out later on. It was a very interesting touch. The new characters are pretty likeable for the most part, and Apollo has made a good impression on me as the main protagonist (he acts perhaps a bit too much like Phoenix, but I assume that's intentional). One thing I disliked was the new forensic science gimmicks Ema introduces, it feels as if the game could easily do without them and they're just there as eye candy, never to return again once you've done your thing. But overall, although 1 and 3 are still the best installments imo, Apollo Justice is a game worthy of your time.

Tales of Graces F.

With an interesting and funny gameplay, but poorly done story with lots of plotholes, two terrible characters (Asbel and Cheria, Asbel being the main guy), and wasted attempts at trying to be funny yet failing completely, this game has given me a bad taste in the mouth. I have zero motivation to do a second playthrough, mainly because of the uninteresting story.

Currently playing Brotherhood, and will hit Revelations after that, because I'm REALLY digging the conspiracy theories, there's no god, 2012 end of the world storyline.

Yes guys, in case you were wondering Darkstalkers I'm not dead

How could you even suppose Assassin's Creed 2 sucked? I would understand Revelations as it's just a 2.75 version of AC2, which will probably make you less motivated, but the second one is where it truly started. The first had the flaw of being completely repetitive after a while. Maybe that's why the second seems that good.

Kids these days, always thinking something sucks before trying them. We old fellows will try everything, even if we know it sucks, like Duke Nukem Forever. You should follow more our example >:(

It's not a matter of trying everything or not, it was half a matter of money (I only play games I'm willing to buy) and half the fact that my first experience was WATCHING THE ENDING, and of course the sequence where you have a fistycuffs fight with the Pope. It was too much ... but now that I was 23 hours into the game, it all felt extremely fitting.

Brotherhood started 2 seconds away from the ending of AC2, so for me it's just like playing one VERY long game, that I've enjoyed very much so far, but not so much because of the gameplay itself, but more like because I actually I enjoy the storyline a lot. I read all the Codex Pages written by Altair in AC2, and there was a little philosophy in there that I liked.

This game is quite possibly the 80's-est thing that has ever existed.  There is more 80's in Double Dragon Neon than there was in the actual 80's.  It is exploding with over-indulged ironic retro nostalgia, and as a result is is easily the most overwhelmingly 'radical' game I have ever played (in a good way).  Highly, highly reccomended, especially if you've got a buddy to play co-op with for wicked high-fiving action.

This is perhaps the worst game I've ever paid money for on Steam. It's got the ugliest faux retro graphics that I've ever seen, an underwhelming soundtrack, the worst attempts at "lol random" humor and can be 100% completed in less than half an hour. If anything proves that Steam Greenlight is an absolute failure and that Pewdiepie is the worst thing ever, this is it.

Ys Seven.

As with the rest of the series: awesome action, kickass music and decent story. Seven gets the honor of being the longest in the franchise, very beginner friendly and having the most developed plot in the entire franchise. I liked how the seemingly light-hearted cliche plot took an unexpected turn and got all serious.

I can't believe it took me a year to complete that thing when it only clocks at 21 hours, I'm glad that's over.

^MY FAVORITE GAME OF ALL YEAR!

Anyway, finished Infamous: Festival of Blood, because it's quite short. It is a very neat-o experience when you've played the second one to death, and a bite-sized bit of fun when you haven't played any of them.

I actually enjoyed it so much that I wish it were a longer piece of DLC. It's only about four missions long, But, there's still plenty to do after and such, so, not bad Sucker Punch. No wonder it's still one of the top sellers on PSN.

Since Tekken Tag 2 is out in the arcades, time to put this thing to rest.

Tekken 6 (Home & Arcade Ver.)

This is definitely a sad day for all of us, saying goodbye to a once well known and sometimes called "perfect" game. It had some flaws, we know, but it was still acceptable. Sure, Azazel's invisishield made him a bit broken but he was still a pretty good boss to fight. The item attacks were pretty cool too. It felt great defeating Nancy, even for the millionth time. It gave us great memories, specially in arcades. Made me talk to strangers and even befriend them. Made enemies too.


May you rest in peace. (Except when there are too many people playing with the TTT2 arcade machines)

Finally finished the main story in this mofo. It's pretty much the same deal as Borderlands, except more weapons, more interesting characters, more vehicles and enemies, more abilities, etc etc. Story was fun, liked it better than the first one.

Horribly repetitive. The music in-game is disappointing. The skills and the decapitation feature didn't make up for it.
Online mode is just a way for you to get XP. Nothing special.
Enemy designs are dull, except for Sangria, the duke of Hell.
And the biggest mistake ... Spoiler alert for those who haven't seen the "real" gameplay.

Thats how I felt, even down to Sangria's design and mannerisms.  If the game had more time in development it would of turned out much better, but word was it was really pushed out early after its rather interesting trailer.

Solid shooter with tons of secrets and tons of other reasons to actually explore levels other then focus on just "shootin shit". The end levels were kinda a clusterfuck with the amount of enemies attacking you at once, but just the sheer diversity helped keep it from getting too repetitive.

In both origins and 2 why don't they keep the game open after you beat it rather that only forcing us to use DLC . At least let us walk around Kirkwall killing random enemies rather than having us being stuck in the house.

Borderlands 2

HOLY FUCK THIS GAME WAS SO AWESOME HOLY SHIT. I seriously can't point what exactly it is that makes this game so fucking addicitive. Could it be the humor? The massive amounts of guns? The constant search for rare loot, that that orgasmic feeling you get when you spend an hour beating a hard-ass boss, then to see a ridicoulous amount of loot fall to the ground?

I don't know, but I started vault hunter mode the second I was done, and will probably continue playing this game until i've capped each character. Seriously, if you enjoy shooting shit, you should really give this one a try.

Dishonored

What can I say about it? At the beginning it felt very awkward, from use of ability's to its stealth gameplay, but as I pushed on I really started to enjoy it. That feeling kinda left once in a while and sometimes it felt like complete BS when I was found and near the end of the game I had 2 crashes at the mission end screen, thankfully it was only about a minute from my last save. The game overall was just okay and I may consider picking up a sequel. Oh and the way they choose ending kinda sucked because stealthing constantly kinda got boring and I ended up with high chaos. If I do a second run I'm gonna try for low chaos.

6.5/10

The best AC I've played so far, albeit a bit short. The Assassin Recruits are super helpful to the point of breaking the game, but still it finally makes you feel like you're an Assassin Master instead of a noob ... And believe me, after 3 games, you feel you've earned it.

I was super hype on this in the beginning, but as it went on it started to wane.  The combat and stealth are vastly improved over the previous installments, but the free running is a little too touchy.  Not to mention that it's jammed pack with even more inconsequential bullshit than ever before.  Hunting is cool and all, but the trading system is hells of boring and absolutely useless.  Also:

Halo 4

Nice way to incorporate the novel's extended fiction into the game's realm, answers some questions left unanswered while raising plenty more.  Good, solid start to a new trilogy, but it doesn't measure up to Combat Evolved's story.

So....yea, on Braid, what's so bad about it?  Was overall quite enjoyable to play and listen to, and the story behind the story, how all of Tim's experiences are just a ruse to cover up the true story, was quite amazing to piece together.

If by 'amazing' you mean 'pretentious, unnecessary, and horrible' then yes.

The gameplay itself was... not... bad? There was some puzzles that were just flat-out poorly designed and some that were genius. I hate to say 'it didn't handhold enough', ever, but it didn't handhold enough. It didn't make you aware that you could do certain things, and some of them seemed to change based on the level. A little more indication of what precisely happened mechanically in each world wouldn't have gone amiss. I like puzzles, but I also like being aware of all the tools required to solve them.

Also would it have killed him to design a different enemy for each world, even if the behaviour was the same? The presence of enemies seemed arbitrary much of the time.

I genuinely don't understand why so many people praise Halo 1's story, and I say this as someone who used to enjoy Halo a great deal and thought the first few novels were quite good.

It... wasn't anything special. At all.

Don't see what what so wrong with the atom bomb story, but if you're that against it, then very well, I'll drop the question.

As for Combat Evolved, it had a fantastic world surrounding it, enjoyable characters, the twist of the Flood, and of course its gameplay.  It just had the right combination of things to make it all work perfectly.

Yeah, the story's pretty damn pretentious, no doubt, but it's not like the story is integral to the game; you can skip most of it. The only thing you can't skip that's story related is the last level I guess, but that has you actually playing a level and the twist is so damn cool!

Yeah, the 'surface' story rubbed me the wrong way a little bit, but the last level twist was great. It's when I went 'dafuq was that?' and looked online when my brain began to want to punch things. I didn't really want to be playing as a rapist or whatever that was. I hope you don't fault me for that. ._.

As for the gameplay, I just came off playing better puzzle games, so I was expecting more production value. It wasn't bad, it just could have been better.

Agreed. I've just seen so many people refer to its story as the second coming, and I didn't get much out of it. It was a very well-designed game but not one where the story had any special relevance to me, like it did in, say, the Legacy of Kain series, or many RPGs. I enjoyed it a lot, just not because of that.

Call of Duty: Black Ops II (Campaign)
It was pretty fun, had some sad moments but still very enjoyable.
The "Choose option" system fucked up the whole campaign feel for me imo because i'm not really sure if the ending that I got was the Best/Worst one.


Oh and the after-credits movie was fucking awesome.

I honestly hated the part of controlling troops to defend the base (or rather, those three objectives). I suck at these kind of challenges. Apart from that, it was quite a cool campaign.

Multiplayer though, I'm quite disappointed at what they did. I just can't like how it works. Specially the new Join Room in Multiplayer. Takes waaaaaaay too much to start a new map, and you cannot choose what server you want, it's all automatic. The worst offense is that now there's only 4 types of games (or 8 if you count Extreme and Normal apart): DM, TDM, S&D and CTF. The others that existed in Black Ops 1 are gone. And I really liked them. Why did they remove them?

Dishonored

Awesome game. But honestly, I didn't buy any power, and you really didn't need them (except Blink, which is awesome). Also, it's waaay too easy, even in the hardest difficulty (or maybe I'm too good, who knows). Also, it sucks that if an unconscious enemy falls from two meters he dies. Because of that, I didn't get that achievement of not killing anyone. And the ending kinda sucked. Still, it's an awesome game and I highly recommend people to play it.

You could blast through in 5 hours or so if you stick to nothing but main assassinations, but with exploration, side missions, finding all runes and other items its time increases a bit. The game also pushes towards replaying it and trying to find the different ways to finish each mission. By the time I finished the game doing all side missions, killing most of EVERYTHING and getting a few items I clocked in about 13 hours.
Title: Re: Last game you finished + 2 lines review.
Post by: Nanashi_1337 on November 22, 2012, 08:23:12 am
Yeah, the game is short IMO. And I took the non-lethal route without powers except Blink, so that means I had to hide bodies, and find other routes that possession or time stop would have opened, plus I tried to explore as much as possible in order not to miss anything (which I didn't), so in theory it should have taken me the most amount of time, but I completed it in 8-10 hours, I think.

Fallout: New Vegas (Dead Money DLC)

The DLC was crazy hard at first because for one, you can't bring your Mojave Wasteland items to the Sierra Madre. Second, if one of your companions die (you'll have three new companions, Dean Domino, Dog/God, and a chick), then you'll die too because all four of you are wearing an explosive slave collar that are linked to each other. And lastly, there's poisonous gas everywhere and because of that, your health will keep on decreasing.

It became easy when you reached the Sierra Madre casino, too bad it became very repetitive.

9/10

Dark Souls

Dark Souls was a great game. Great graphics, difficult gameplay and tons of armor sets. And just like Demon's Souls, the story was as confusing as ever. I had to read around the internet to understand it all. Also, It turns out there's two endings so I have to play all the way through again. Which should be fairly easy seeing as this game was no where near as hard as Demon's Souls.
PvP is fucking awful. No matter what I tried, I was always practically instakilled. They either lag/glitch or some stupid shit and manage to get a backstab on you in the dumbest position possible or spam cheap scaled magic attacks and kill you with little to no effort. I completely gave up on the achievements.
Still, the game gave you a magic spell to disguise yourself as something related to your environment. I had a lot of fun with that. I actually used it once in the midst of battle (I took advantage of the camouflage poison mist gives you) and turned into a giant vase. Guy was completely clueless as to where I went. I ended up laughing to a point where I lost all focus on the battle and got killed about 10 minutes later.

Solo or with an allied phantom: 8/10
PvP: 4/10

Some DLCs that increase Cop/Triad/Face Exp are not worth it IMO. Though I did purchase the Triad Enforcer DLC so I could up the Triad level to 10. Nightmare in North Point can be finished in like 2 hours or something. It's really short.

Possibly start with a new character whos a conduit in training or something.

I see because there is QUITE a bit of DLC they have out. I did purchase the Square based character pack so I could run around as Adam Jenson. Shame to hear Northpoint is only a few hours, but I don't know why I'd expect anything on the scale of Red Dead's Undead Nightmare. Thanks for the heads up though and I might pick up the one you mentioned that increased Triad level.

Besides the DLC business I'm having fun with it so far, its like a little more restrictive Batman: AA/AC.

Overall, a solid game.  The gameplay gets a teeny bit repetitive and there's a lump-load of backtracking you have to do, but the excellent writing, graphics, and music help to smooth some of the sharp edges out.  It's also pretty short, but it's got enough replay value in it that I'm probably going to start New Game+ right away.

@Blackmore: Congrats on making it through unscathed. :thumbsup:


Assassin's Creed 3

Hmm, where to start...

Firstly, I felt more like a mercenary than an assassin. I understand that they'd want to change things up a bit, but my actions felt more like grunt work than something becoming of a skilled assassin.

Glitches, glitches, glitches... My God, I wish I could count the number of times my horse got stuck in something. That made the segments where you were forced to ride one a complete pain in the ass. Especially when you had to chase down that fucker in sequence 10. >_<

Chase sequences are pretty unforgiving, especially that last one. You pretty much start out so far away that if you slip up once you'll fail.

Guards are assholes. While they've always been in these games, I found it rather frustrating that I'd be incognito, in a non-restricted area and still hordes of them will start chasing me for no reason. It's pretty hard to get rid of them too as they're VERY persistent, and it seems as if there are fewer places to hide, this time around.

Side quests felt very inconsequential.

Conor is also a pretty dull character IMO. Nowhere near as interesting as Ezio or even Altair. The supporting cast of characters were pretty good though.

Now for the good points:

The music and graphics are marvelous. Same goes for the voice work, and as always, the combat and free running are fun. They've been dumbed down a bit (and were never very challenging to begin with), but it's still fun I guess.

The story was pretty decent, as well,  though Conor's portion ended a bit suddenly IMO.



All in all, I had fun, but was pretty disappointed by the time the credits rolled.

GOH was right, it was short, but at least funny and a less serious take on the games story until that point. I wish there were more rewards for the main game then clothes, like say using the cool blue aura instead of the normal face meter by toggle. Another thing that irks me, is that I need 2 more stats I need to level to gold, but I can't find the damn enemies. Do they expect you to start another one to finish them up, if they even carry over at all. Decent DLC for a little over 5$.

XCom: Terror from the Deep

Pretty much the first Xcom except with heightened difficulty, bigger maps, stricter research trees, and nearly twice the amount of gamebreaking bugs and glitches (usually as a result of the research tree overhaul). For all the hell the game put me through, the last part of the final mission was stupidly easy (though I do have to thank the map's random generator for that). Psionics/Molecular Control is just as gamebreaking as ever, even though I barely used it in UFO Defense.

Also goddamn I hated Lobstermen. I screwed up research on the Vibro Blades by capturing a live Calcinite instead of performing an autopsy on one, and only ONE showed up during a terror mission in February. Had to wait until October before I could encounter another, which pretty much hastened priority of getting Molecular Control ASAP (as broken as it was, watching unarmed Lobstermen claw each other to death or using them as sacrifical lambs to Tentaculats was rather entertaining)

Deux Ex: Human Revolution

I went ahead and replayed this game after a long time, doing a Ghost+Pacifist run. I have to say, after comparing it with other stealthy games like Dishonored, I can see a lot more flaws now than I didn't see in the past with the stealth mechanics. Still, it's a good game, and I still like it after so many years. Maybe I should replay the other Deus Ex too, when I have time.

Though really, I wasn't that serious about getting Ghost and Pacifist achievements, and for some effing reason I got them. LOL. After my three tries in the past, which never told me why I didn't get them. Weird luck I have. Also, changed language to English for various reasons, but didn't expect the voice actor to be as awful as in Spanish language. A bit better, but still not good IMO.

Solid rpg with an interesting Pawn based premise. Second run through should be interesting and the need to make my pawn as good as possible is a decent driving force to continue taking on stronger enemies. Dragon seemed a little easy though compared to the monsters along the way to his fight. Can't wait for that second ending either and apparently a expansion hitting very soon.

So, solid generic turn-based JRPG.  Some technical hiccups such as knocking you off Xbox LIVE and a personally poor choice in boss theme, but nothing too bad.  Have to admit, there were some good twists come third CD, though maybe a little over the top at the very end.  End boss was way too easy, though, at level 80 I killed everything on the entire last level without taking any damage.

My first run through toke me about 40ish hours. I had to level up because even with decent pawns I'd get destroyed(along with my personally made pawn) and doing those board based side quest toke a little time, although I didn't do them all. As far trophies/achievements go I got a decent amount just beating the game. Infact I still don't have some easy ones because I rarely switch out my extra pawn spaces.

Zone of the Enders HD Collection.
The worst port to HD ever. The first ZOE game was ok (but still fps dropped more than in original PS2 version, a bit more).
But ZOE2 was a complete wreck. FPS dropped like 5 times more in comparison to PS2 version. Everything looked blurry in a game and overall worse visually.
In boss battle with Lloyd in a pre battle dialog - the heroes had black squares instead of mouth's. And finally they revamped the battle with final boss - in original he was the easiest boss, now he is the hardest and the location of the battle was just a nightmare (so much garbage on screen I sometimes didn't understand where am I on the screen).
3/10. Buy only because of Metal Gear Rising Demo. ZOE 1 and 2 are awesome games, but if you want to play it - go get the original versions on PS2.

Borderlands 2

Nice beginning, complete "can't believe they actually did that", tear bringing middle.....weak ending.

Guns are better looking and of a wider variety...but as with the first game, I found no use for most of them when you got a good Sniper.  And I wasn't even Zero, I was Salvador.  And I had no use for Slag or Electric weapons throughout.

The world and its characters within are expanded a lot, though, which kept the game humorous where wanted, serious where needed, and enjoyable throughout.

A few hours before triggering Ending A, I was thrilled, sweating with the expectations! Then I started OVERTIME MODE and I breezed through it, and I felt the challenge was gone (The learning curve with this game, JEEZ!) And then it ended.

Maybe I'll grind it out a bit more to max out to level 50, and save more pplz, now that I know my way around the mall.  The most bang for my buck (It was $16 USD) all year. Guys! Are the sequels any good?

The sequel is disappointing, just to warn you. The ADAM collection system was a pain in the ass, because of the whole "Protect the Sisters from tons of enemies while they gather ADAM x2" thing, which normally takes a lot of the ammo/health you've been collecting, even if you're good at setting traps. Also, the plot isn't as great as in Bioshock 1, unfortunately, and they just reused nearly everything from the first game, with few changes. I recommend you to get it only when there's an offer like "50% discount" in Steam.

Gargoyle's Quest

The game's way way easier then I remembered, I pretty much blew through it after I beat the first boss (save for the Naga Paths). It also hasn't aged too well, since the limitations of the Gameboy hardware really show in this game. Still a good game nonetheless.

Hitman: Absolution

I was expecting the plot-twist in the end, honestly. Anyway, the scenarios are smaller but with lots of places to interact, so I don't mind the reduced size. And I really like the new mechanics, specially that you don't need a syringe or anesthesic to knock down enemies. The only problems that I've found is that sometimes the enemy sees me from places that I just can't believe a human can't see you. Also, the "Subdue" option is waaaaay too sensitive of the position, and I honestly don't like that grabbing from the sides triggers a fight, and not the "Subdue". And I can't understand why you can't attack an enemy when you're hiding, like in a box.

But yeah, I can really say the game is good. Must play, really, specially if you like assassination games.

Doom 3 BFG (main campaign only)

Well, I'm glad I can play this game in a better resolution with this revision. Also, the flashlight is no longer a weapon, so that's great, but the problem is that the areas where you were forced to use a different source of light to travel since it was swarmed with demons were just pointless. Overall, I still like this game, even if sometimes I feel like it's too slow. And I still love how the game likes to punish you for sidetracking and getting more ammo/health/shield. It truly feels like demons are playing with you, as you may even waste everything you just got, but unfortunately the shotgun is so broken that you only need that to kill 75% of your enemies (aka dodge then shoot in the face).

Also, I got the Speed Run achievement too. Seriously, I was in Veteran and I sidetracked a lot. How can you even take more than 10 hours to beat this game?

Assassin's Creed III

I seemed to have missed the point that this became a terrible game bogged down by never-ending bugs, so I've heard it called.  Well, I enjoyed it plenty.  Connor's no Ezio.....but then, Ezio's no Altair.  They've all been quite different and enjoyable in their own way.  Music is superb as usual, attention to historical detail (And Shawn's sarcastic reviews of all of it) is great, gameplay is.....different than previous entries, but no trouble to adapt to.

Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D (3DS): I really enjoyed this game. Weapons are badass, cutscenes were great, I like EVA because she looks hot, and that's about it.  However, what I found pointless about the game was that I was trying to defeat The Sorrow, although, you can't. If he can't die, then how am I supposed to fight him? Another thing I loved about the game was when I was aiming weapons at those guards when they didn't know it was coming to them. :laugh4:

Resident Evil 4 HD

Not the best job from Capcom, especially when going against ports like the Wii version, but it is still one of the best damn games and thankfully the port came with every bit and bob that the Wii version had. Although I felt like the normal run through was much easier because I could of sworn you got the Striker at the island, as well as the largest attache case(or at the very least RIGHT before the island), but there it was in the castle. Love the game and can't wait to do Separate Ways later on this year.

Although I still want an opinion from somebody who played DR1, since I feel strongly about Frank West. I'm a believer now.
I know it's really late for this, but since nobody answered...

I was a big fan of DR1, and DR2 did not disappoint. It's great, and weapon combinations are really fun to play around with. And the survivor pathfinding is much improved, so while it doesn't feel like a chore shepherding them to the safe house, there is still some challenge to it. It's a great game and a sequel.

There is also a DLC prequel, Case Zero, that is pretty fun (and your XP and combo weapons will carry over to the main game) but it's not absolutely essential, I guess. The DLC sequel, Case West, is really cool and is more essential to the series' storyline. Plus, Chuck and Frank don't get along at all and spend most of the story sniping at each other and it's wonderful. Off The Record is also fun, but since a good deal of it is pretty similar to vanilla DR2, I would only get it if it were on sale. Or if you really really like Frank West, because he is awesome.

Well, I guess the prequel is unessential (but fun and engrossing); the sequel DLC, however, will almost certainly have implications for DR3. Plus it's really fun to see Chuck and Frank interact. And it reveals the canon ending for DR2, and wraps up some loose ends of both DR1 and DR2.

Last game I completed, as in start to finish would be Persona 3 Portable.

Well, what can I say that hasn't already been said? It has an engaging story that kept me interested with what turns would happen next. The combat system is pretty standard RPG fare. The only trouble I had was getting a strong grasp of what Personas do what and how the fusions work. (Loki is bawss). And the quasi-dating sim elements were neat as well.(Maya-chan for life). So, all in all. Good times were had. I loved it to death. Now I just need to get Persona 4  :llama:

DmC Devil May Cry

The game was a lot of fun. Combos felt great, platforming was awesome, and the graphics are really nice. The Bob Barbas boss fight, in particular, stands out for me. So does the little gauntlet you go through in that night club level. Great fun! :) Ironically, the games weakest point is the reason Capcom hired NT in the first place. The writing went from serviceable to OMG I hope no one heard that cheesy line just now. In any event, it's an action game so I can forgive sub par writing. Also, I hate to say it, but the game somehow gets much better once you slap on Dante's DMC3 skin. While I've never liked Dante as a character I've always thought he at least looked cool, so it was good to see the skin make it's way into the game.

So yeah, had fun. Waiting for Bloody Palace and Vergil's Downfall.

Uncharted: Golden Abyss PS Vita

Played the game on the hardest difficulty. Which means I can easily die by staying without cover, and enemies have godlike accuracy, hitting you even if you cover if there's one small part of the body coming out of cover, and grenades always appearing right at your position, even if there's something in their path that should be blocking them. Just for the achievement. Other "extra" thing of this difficulty is that the two QTE scenes will kill you automatically if you make one single mistake, unlike the other difficulties that gives you three chances. Fortunately, I was better this time, so I only died once in the first one and none in the second one.

Anyway, I can be satisfied about this now, I beat it! But the amount of tries it took me, the lots of swearing and the amount of insanity that came to me for some deaths that required tons of tries is a good proof that you should only spend 2-3 hours a day for this achievement. No kidding.

Title: Re: Last game you finished + 2 lines review.
Post by: Jmorphman on February 16, 2013, 10:42:07 pm
They're both pretty glitchy (and SA1 moreseo) but I'm more forgiving of the first simply because it is the first one they did. And also because the Knuckles levels were better and the shooting stages were fast paced romps instead of obnoxiously slow and also there was no Shadow nor Rouge and the enemies had variety and the bosses were better and there were adventure fields which were fun to mess around in and seriously Shadow is the worst.

Even Amy's levels felt pretty fast, IMO, so they felt like they worked with the game. In fact, pretty much the only character I disliked playing with was Big the Cat, because he feels so pointless and grafted onto the game.

Arkham City (New Game +).

Man, that game is a lot shorter without the riddler trophies, and the difficulty spiked in some weird places, but it was mostly easy and quick enough to be enjoyable. I really love the Batman Beyond skin, and I was so much better at gliding this time around. I've still got Riddler's Revenge and all the DLC to do, this is just the game that keeps on giving.

What Titiln said, it is short, I finished it with 4:54 hours. But it is so intense and full of epicness that it doesn't matter how short it is.
Also - it has a lot of unlockable stuff and has one helluva replay value. Will for sure replay it on very hard and Revengeance difficulties (Just need more bp to purchase dat cheap OP Gray Fox sword)
I'd give MGR a 9.8/10. Probably the best slasher I ever played.

I agree with you on the radar system for the Knuckles/Rouge levels being ruined in SA2. It was way better in SA1.

Yeah, nope, it's a glitchy piece of trash with horrible gameplay all around, and missing many of the aspects that made Sonic Adventure great.

Glitches that make me die repeatedly and prevent me from completing levels for hours on end are not 'irrelevant'. Nor is climbable surfaces not being programmed correctly. Only the Sonic/Shadow levels were worth anything, and while one or two Sonic levels may have been better than any single level in Sonic Adventure, one or two Sonic levels does not make a game.

It was too linear, lacked gameplay variety, had shitty story and shitty music, bad level design (Keep running! Don't worry about the pits, if you keep running, you'll---OH, NOPE, YOU NEEDED TO JUMP THERE, YOU'RE DEAD! Now climb around looking for an emerald for aeons while listening to I'M KNUCKLES, RAP RAPPITY RAP), and obviously very little playtesting.

I can say it's a bad game because it's a bad game. That's why I'm saying it's a bad game. Because it is. It was the first bad mainstream Sonic game and marked the decline of the series. Try not telling me what I can and can't say just because you want to be right.

Well, I didn't hate the emerald hunting. The only ones I didn't like were Meteor Heard and Mad Space. Those levels were HUGE, and I'd spend over ten minutes on them (and it didn't help being constantly bombarded by meteorites). I guess it might be I just suck at those levels though. Other than that, I can't hate the game. It's a fun game for the most part and I have good memories of playing it with friends.

Screw Omochao though! I throw him..her..it off cliffs whenever I get the chance. I know I already mentioned my dislike for Omochao already, but UGGGH! So useless!

My biggest problem with this game is that the 3 core aspects of a platformer or mainly a Sonic game are all spread out into 3 gameplay mechanics. Linear speed, clunky platforming, limited exploration in most levels, no thanks.

Also I wouldn't consider it one of the best sonic games... at all. Not even Adventure which I loved to death as a kid and still like the good characters of it to this day. I know I can't find a way to say I dislike SA2 without sounding whiny but it's really hard to talk negatively about a game most people love since anything I say can easily be classified as nitpicking or bitching.

Edit: I will give credit to the multiplayer though, it does a really good job of offering variety with its multiple levels and modes of play.

Sonic 3 and Knuckles
yeah I replayed this game again. One of many, truthfully. I still wholeheartedly stand by the fact that this is the best sonic game, not Sonic 2, not Sonic CD, as good as both of those are. The Special Stages here don't feel as cumbersome, or as irritating(see Sonic 2 ughhh.) The level design is open ended and Sonic and Knuckles are both very unique experiences, neither one feels tacked on and it just flows. Awesome game, probably my favorite 2D Sonic game.

SA2 was the mainstream game that killed Sonic?

No, Sonic isn't dead. It declined for a while, starting with SA2, and then revived itself with Colors and Generations. By 'mainstream' I meant 'not handheld or spinoff'. Sonic 3D Blast is not a main Sonic game, and it actually was the particular shitpile I was thinking of when I wrote that. I never said SA2 was the worst Sonic game. That would be absurd. It was the first bad main one, followed by '06 and Unleashed, which were worse. o-o

"I feel that you're wrong. You can't express your opinion because it isn't legitimate." Really?

That's not even close to what I said. I said that most of it is purely subjective (AKA opinion) and that I found the glitches irrelevant because they aren't gamebreaking, in times playing through the game (Bout 3 or 4 times I think) I can only recall a few glitches that required a retry, and everything else was just the result of a beginner's trap.

It's not for everybody, but you can't really say it's a bad game, it's just not your cup of tea. Still up there with the best Sonic games, even without nostalgia.

Edit: I will give credit to the multiplayer though, it does a really good job of offering variety with its multiple levels and modes of play.

At the time that it came out the linear speed of the Sonic/Shadow levels was actually fairly revolutionary and unique. The hidden upgrades were all very intelligently done for me and it was epic at the time to do the things that you were doing. Grinding on a bridge, running from a giant truck, the boss battles were all grand in scale (IMO), it set a benchmark that was soon surpassed with time, which is why I think you might feel this way.

The exploration of the treasure hunting is what I'll forever disagree on because the ones that weren't wide open were fairly intriguing in one way or the other. The ones that weren't wide open for exploration were often made up of puzzles that really felt rewarding when you got it.

Tails/Eggman missions were overall hit-and-miss though, they never were really fun but they was never really so boring either.

Like I said, not a bad game, especially for the time it came out. However some people will like it, some people will not.

Dude Snakebyte chill man. There's a difference between saying "here's why I don't like a game" and "this game sucks stfu and stop trying to question me"

Cazaki as you said, yes the sonic levels were fun then and stand alone are fairly enjoyable, compared to others though.. I can't say they stick out as well. But that's just how I see it since I compare this game to SA1 a lot since that was what I thought when I first played it.
Exploration I'll say the same as you said "I'll forever disagree on"
Mech.. well said.. pretty bland for the most part, not too fun, nothing too bad, just felt like it kind of slowed the game at times.
As for the bosses, I think they did a good job for the most part, some of them are pathetically easy but others are well done. The Final Hazard did a good job of introducing many people to the final boss and crush 40 music theme that would be in later games, SA1 may have done it first but I think SA2's had a bigger impact on the series.

Also how can one not like Knuckles' music? As much as I hated most of those levels the music made it better. Pumpkin Hill yo.

HEAVY HITTING MESSAGES that are actually done very well, how about that.

Gameplay is pretty standard but I would still recommend it for the good narrative and the excellent structure. Playing it on "suicide mission" (hard mode) from the start helps, since it forces you be more careful and rely on the tactical elements more.

DmC: Vergil's Downfall

The combat is fun, not to say the base game isn't, but you can see more influence from the original team of DMC 2-4 who did work on this. Story is stupid and is just a sequel hook, but with no bait attached. Far to short, no "real" unlockables and after finishing a simple Human run my, SoS run toke me an hour or so. Not worth the money. 4/10

Tomb Raider (PC version)

Updated impressions from another thread :
-Good : graphics and animations ; audio (sound effects, music, most of the voice acting) ; fun when the game actually lets you play.
-Bad : story ; characters ; skills, hunting and crafting are kind of unnecessary ("kind of" only because Lara doesn't figure out she can use her axe as a melee weapon until you unlock that "skill") ; AWESOME vision kills the exploration aspect ; not enough non-human enemies.
-Worse : "young, inexperienced Lara you'll want to protect" during cutscenes, Terminator during gameplay ; linearity ; hammer the buttons and wiggle the sticks to evade the rapist hobo, a.k.a QTEs ; tons of ammo, health regen, next to no challenge in combat... so much for survival ; hammer the buttons and wiggle the sticks to evade the rapist wolf, a.k.a more QTEs ; tiny tombs with puzzles so complex a gopher with brain damage could figure them out in a matter of seconds.

+Gameplay is simple, but it takes time to master it so you don't end up dead.
+Music is really catch- MY PRIDE I HOLD IN MAH HAANDS
+Story is actually pretty good, at least in my opinion.
+Quite a few of the characters are great
-Missons needed a bit more variety
-I wish some characters were fleshed out a bit more, like Garuda.
-OINKIE IS ANNOYING JESUS BALL-CRUSHING CHRIST
-THe ending could give some closure and all that good stuff.


Overall, I give this beaut an 8/10. GO give it a shot if you haven't already.

I'm hearing really good things about this game. I'm glad it ended up being good, honestly. For what I'm hearing too, the camera works perfectly, which is a must in games like Tomb Raider that makes you do a lot of acrobatics. Not seeing where to jump because the camera obstructs you is annoying (Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 ugh).

METAL GEAR RISING: REVENGEANCE

Case File R:07 (last boss) is so over the top, it's madness! The rumors are true, they tried to build a "plot" around a good gameplay, and failed at the plot.

I'm sorry sir, you must not have played MGS3 or MGS: Peace Walker. I feel sorry for you.

PW is the epic-est game ever to have graced the Metal Gear saga, in all possible senses.

Post by: 修羅 on March 11, 2013, 11:49:22 pm
But I cleared Peace Walker where most of the interesting story bits are in the briefing files. Portable Ops brought more to the table than PW in terms of story integrated with the gameplay.

And MGS3 is a bad example to use because it had about 5 hours of cutscenes, to the point where the Existence disc in Subsistence (limited edition) actually took some of them out for the sake of keeping it more focused on the important stuff. The game itself could be cleared in shortly under two hours and a half in European Extreme without speedrunning it.

And it was the best thing ever. Seriously E-Extreme MGS3S was the shit.

...actually the only MG games I didn't play were the AC!D games. I heard I missed out hard. ;~;

God of War: Chains of Olympus HD.

Short but sweet. 10 hours on hard mode but I looked everywhere and died a lot, plus maybe another hour for the challenges. Story could have been better, graphics could have been better, but gameplay was spot-on and the Gauntlet of Zeus in particular is wonderful. It's free from the problems I had with 3, and is probably my second-favorite game in the series. So much better than the impression of it I got for beating the challenges for my cousin on his PSP in like 2008. Now for Ghost of Sparta. :D

Its worth it. Certainly not the best game in the franchise, but it has some good moments. Its worth it to play a coop run simply for Carver's optional missions, but only if you are him. Otherwise your kinda just chillin' as Issac fighting things normally.



Sleeping Dogs: Year of the Snake

Fun being a simple run of the mill cop, but most of the side missions feel familiar and no new enemy types to fight. Story was alright, but nothing huge like I was expecting, especially since this is canon stuff after the story. I got enjoyment out of it though in the end and at least it also gave you more stuff to use in the main story whenever I go back to finish stuff there. 6/10

Very good, the atmosphere of the game makes it feel right. I liked it overall, but it's too short and actually no sub-quests. So, overall I liked the first Darkness more, but the second game is almost there. I recommend it to everyone, even if you don't like FPS's.

Battlefield 3

Well, borrowing it from a friend who used their online pass code, so no online multiplayer for me, anyways.  Campaign was ok, felt like it was really cut short when it was starting to get good.  But good god, is the game filled with bugs.  Missing textures, characters with no eyes, layering issues, bodies disappearing before they even drop dead....

The jump from the plane with the Battlefield theme remix playing, though, that was pretty awesome.  Shame that's probably one of two places in the whole game you'll ever hear it play, the other being the credits.

Now that I've finished it I disagreed with some of your cons and I just kinda wanted some insight on it if you're cool with that.

fun when the game actually lets you play.

To me personally the game was not plagued by QTEs, in desperate situations where you wouldn't be able to normally control the game anyway (like a slide), sure there's QTEs, but it's not Heavy Rain, they were tastefully placed IMO, was there any particular ones that you found obnoxious?

-Bad : story ; characters ; skills, hunting and crafting are kind of unnecessary ("kind of" only because Lara doesn't figure out she can use her axe as a melee weapon until you unlock that "skill")

Story is fine to me, it's a survival story mixed in with some supernatural archaeology, but I'm not familiar with older Tomb Raider stories, so what was so bad about it. Most characters in the game I do hate, I would agree and I felt no kind of connection to them except Roth, Hunting is just for XP (as it should be.) and the upgrade system to me was great. What was your beef with it?

-Worse : "young, inexperienced Lara you'll want to protect" during cutscenes, Terminator during gameplay ; linearity ; tons of ammo, health regen, next to no challenge in combat... so much for survival ; tiny tombs with puzzles so complex a gopher with brain damage could figure them out in a matter of seconds.

Lara by the middle to end of the game is the stone cold killer she's supposed to be, starting out it's just new to her. I thought her development was fine. There's atleast 3 to 4 hours of optional exploration and tombs, I agree with it being too easy though but perhaps you expected too much out of the survival aspect of the game? There's health regen and all that but you still die fairly quickly and it's not like your just taking hits like crazy. AI is too inaccurate, but when you do get hit you die fast if your not careful, the game is designed so that you aren't taking bullets and that's why it seems like terminator. Firefights usually have you at a vantage point and most encounters are stealthy, it's not like Call of Duty.

Again, just friendly discussion I'm not attacking your opinion or nothing I just kind of wanted to see why you thought some of this.

Guardian Heroes (XBLA version)

Bought this months ago, finally had time recently to actually finish it.  I actually enjoyed it a lot more than I did on the Saturn... and that says a lot.  The updated sprites are lovely, controls are spot-on, and the rewritten dialogue gives the characters a lot more personality (ex: Glute and the thieves).  There's lots to do in order to truly "complete" it, from finding all story branches/endings to unlocking characters for the Arena/Arcade mode.  Wasn't able to do any Live multiplayer though, since I don't have a Gold subscription at the moment. :(  Even without extra companions, it's still possible to make it through Story mode on Normal by yourself in as little as a half-hour (and a little practice, of course).

Anyways, HIGHLY recommended if you love Treasure/beat-em-ups/juggling chaos.

Great game. Amazing graphics, same-old satisfying gameplay. Liked the characters but I couldn't really get into most of the dialogue, I felt that the dialogue was kinda fast, and that every character had an immediate answer to everything, it didn't felt really natural. Or maybe I wasn't used to seeing the protagonist talk a lot unlike the other games idk. Other than that:

-Every encounter with wolves, especially the wolf cave, in which you get to "fight" ONE wolf in a QTE.
-The climbing section in the intro.
-The "arrow to the knee" dodge counter. You want to make an overpowered move that requires a certain timing, fine. Don't make it a freaking QTE that pops up every time you dodge an attack.
-The final boss fight.
-Funny you mention the sliding sections, I didn't mind them too much, except for the bits where the game goes into slow motion right before you hit a wooden barrier.

Story is fine to me, it's a survival story mixed in with some supernatural archaeology, but I'm not familiar with older Tomb Raider stories, so what was so bad about it.
In my opinion, the plot is okay for the most part. Not really original and kind of predictable, but it gets the job done, pretty much like every Tomb Raider (at least, the ones made by Core Design).

However, I think the whole dramatic/serious/"realistic" theme of Lara growing into a "survivor" is done quite badly and completely at odds with the gameplay. She's an amateur archeologist with a little practice with a bow (and "not THAT kind of Croft", whatever the hell that's supposed to mean), yet has no trouble aiming a gun and handling recoil like a pro, and is better qualified than a Space Marine Green Beret in survival techniques and dealing with crippling injuries.

Then there's stuff like making a big deal of Lara killing someone for the first time, then leaving you free to mercilessly murder hundreds of guys without ever touching the point after that. Although it has her deal with other matters in a (slightly) more efficient manner much later in the game. Meh.

perhaps you expected too much out of the survival aspect of the game?
Guilty as charged. I was expecting silly stuff like hunger management or hunting/harvesting plants to make health items instead of just extra XP, and weapon maintenance (especially since you're using WW2 weapons). >: P

The upgrade system is okay for the most part, but kind of uninspired. Only one health upgrade that boosts your HP (by 50%, no less), abliities that give you more loot/XP when hunting or scavenging, combat abilities that net you more loot/XP if you kill enemies in a certain fashion... I would have liked a skill tree for each weapon, and more health and/or healing rate upgrades.


Anyhoo, more on-topic :
Sleeping Dogs : Year of the Snake
Fun, but a tidge short (took me three hours to finish the story and side-missions). Like Nightmare in North Point, it doesn't let you import your save from the main campaign, so you are stuck with a pre-determined skill set. The story is pretty uninteresting, no new enemies, and most of the missions are repetitive.
~30 DLCs, including 3 story DLCs, and I'm not sure a single one of them is worth the money. Pity.

Zelda: Skyward Sword

Another great Zelda game, at least for me. The dungeons were very fun and unique, and the motion controls, while a bit awkward at first, felt alright. The item upgrading was also a nice addition. I loved grinding for treasure and upgrading every item Link had on hand, and then overpowering pretty much any enemy in my path.

This game also has a fantastic soundtrack and a few great characters. Ghirahim was such an amusing villain!


Although, I would have liked if they included a fast-travel to move between the regions after unlocking them all. It was a bit of a pain having to move back-and-forth between the sky and the surface.

Still a great game though. 9/10.

This is most definitely one of the best written games I have ever played. The characters are all likeable and the dialogue is genuinely funny. The gunplay isn't the best out there and the climbing can be iffy at times, but it's a lot of fun to explore and just take in the gorgeous  graphics.

If you have a ps3 and enjoy adventure games, you're doing yourself a great disservice if haven't played this game. Ordering the third game now. :)

Tomb Raider:

Kinda disappointed in how things ended. With that, I mean that I wasn't expecting the Oni to be a final boss honestly, then make Mathias a QTE boss (glitched btw, forcing you to low quality if you wanted to survive it). I was expecting some sort of fight against the Sun Queen, and Onis be a mini-bosses that could appear through the game. Oh well, the game was really really fun, and a nice change from the usual Tomb Raider games. I really recommend it to everybody. Now on to play Bioshock Infinite, which I got as birthday present.

Skyrim (Main storyline)

....Kind of a letdown of an ending.  I mean, Oblivion at least had some serious destruction going on to the city, Alduin here didn't really do anything.  He wasn't even remotely challenging to fight, seeing there's 4 other people he fights instead of you, I never even took any damage.

Blades don't even celebrate that he's dead, just "Oh, that's cool, did you kill Paarthurnax yet?".  The whole main story just ended up being done like one of the many side quests throughout, no big ending.

Ah well.  Sovngarde was pretty at least.  And there's still the rest of the world to explore.

...Okay, it was surely a plot twist, but not as great as Bioshock 1. Definitely better than 2, of course. Some parts of the game were really beautiful to look, they truly did a good job here. A little disappointed that they pulled a "Kill a whole army" last boss fight again like in 2, instead of the last boss fight in 1. But honestly, it's a great game and I recommend it to you. Don't know why people had trouble understanding the ending though, was kind of clear IMO.

Bioshock Infinite. I really don't think 2 lines will be good enough to review this.

Clearly one of my favorite games of all time. I was never interested in the Bioshock series in the first place which makes it even all the more surprising that I would love this gem more than I should have.

Infinite has some of the best graphics I've ever seen within a video game which really made me stop and appreciate how gorgeous the city of Columbia is. Though I was only playing with the PS3 version, it's still a sight to behold and the sense of scale that the game brings to the floating city is simply breathtaking.

The story itself is pretty generic near the beginning, but starts to ramp up as the game goes on. Though it can be quite confusing at times especially near the middle portion of the game, everything will be answered as soon as you get to the ending. While one of the best stories I've heard in a while, it still has a few unanswered questions and plot holes, but the ending itself will leave a lasting impression on you for a long time.

Overall this game is just so good. The actual gameplay can be quite limited and restrictive for the console versions and the story can be kind of confusing to some, however it more than makes up for it in every other aspect. 2013 just started and it is already my candidate for GotY.

Katawa Shoujo
A pretty nice visual novel,which seems like a basic and dull FIND A GIRL game,but with every character having an awesome back-story and even more awesome chapters you can really see characters develop and change while the game goes(Hanakos character probably goes through most changes,being a shy girl with almost no friends at the beginning,later she gets less and less shy-er,and actually opens up a lot to you if you pick her route).
I heard Rins route is the best,didnt play it yet,cause im not all that interested in Armless Painters....
Oh and your neighbor Kenji is just plain weird and funny...He believes that all feminists are planning a conspiracy against men,which leads to some funny conversations.

You should really try the first one. It's really good, and it has an awesome plot twist. You probably got the first for free if you pre-ordered or bought the game in the shop.

You should also play Kagetsu Tohya, else you won't know the origin of some of the characters that appear in Melty Blood and subsequent games, like Len and Kouma. I do recommend you to grab a guide for Kagetsu Tohya, unlocking everything is a real pain in the ass.

Thanks will try it out.
Anyway,fixed my PS2 the other day and continued playing some of my other games.
Finished Dynasty Warriors 5.
It was pretty fun,the stories were interesting,probably a lil more to me than a normal person,with me being a fan of history and swords and stuff.
The enemies actually attack you in the last couple of missions(!),so finishing them wasnt really easy.
Unlocked all the characters and stages(Theres a big bunch of them),still didnt unlock all the weapons and objects.
The voice acting sucks,and for some reason Xiao Qiao,a lil girl with fans,has the best stats in the game.
Also,characters deaths are done so dramatically,especially Guan Yus death,which actually made me chuckle a little,and didnt leave any sign of sadness on me,which i suppose it was the scenes actual point.
Also i find some parts of the game weird(Gan Ning kills Ling Tongs father,they become best friends later),but thats history for ya.
Xu Zhu and Zuo Ci are my favs,also Ma Chao(Whos name translates to Bye Dude on serbian,CH read as ć)and Sun Ce....A brilliant strategist that has a big habbit of not giving a fuck.
The game would get a 8 out of 10 if you ask me,cause it was pretty fun

Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker HD Edition (console port) (main ops only + real ending)

An amazing entry into the franchise that I finally got to play without those outlandishly terrible PSP controls.
I can't really say too much without spoiling it, it's just greatness.
The only real gripe I have is how grindy the game can be at times, It sort of uses the retroactive progression like RE5 works (you can play older parts of the game with all your current items and grind for more) but in more bite-sized bits.

Also, it's the first Metal Gear Solid that has a co-opable main story and imho, Should be included in almost every other franchise ever.


------------------------
inFamous 1

Fair Story, decent gameplay. Liked the moral choices. It's ok.
Ever wanted to play Spider-Man 2 or Ultimate Spider-Man as Electro? Well it's pretty much that. Not to knock it at all.

Lost in Shadow

Fun, inventive puzzle-platformer. It's not perfect (combat is bad), but it really takes advantage of it's central gimmick (you play as a shadow, and all the platforms are shadows cast by objects in the "real world"). They keep introducing new twists to keep the premise fresh (such as giving you control over the light source, which allows you to dramatically change the size and position of platforms), so it never really gets stale, and the entire game is just about the exact right length it needed to be. A good purchase, especially since it's available pretty cheaply now.

Just beat the Story Mode for Skullgirls.

It's a very fun game, and as usual, I'm good with the quicker characters, while I suck shit with everyone else. :y

The story itself was rather interesting, what, with how everyone basically worships Eldridge abominations, I guess.

In two lines (set your display resolution to 320x240 beforehand) : My innocence has been shattered by this blatant tourist trap. I want my money back.

(slightly) Longer version :
-Good : graphics, music, first hour of the story, setting.
-Bad : rest of the story, characters, general gameplay, setting has no bearing on the story unlike Rapture/Bioshock 1&2.
-Worse : enemy AI, way too linear, no replay value, only a few types of enemies, no challenge whatsoever, not a single puzzle.

Well, now I get why it's called BioShock.  Those clever bastards, tying things so well by keeping them so separated.

Couldn't have asked for a more wonderfully confusing ending.

Absolutely perfect storytelling all around, beautiful looking throughout, and an actual challenge for a change on Hard.  And could not ask for a more better fitting soundtrack.

Really only thing to take away from it...is the lack of scare factor the first two had.  Worst was...

I could elaborate, but I'd probably end up typing an entire essay and drawing comparisons to the other Shock games and the gameplay demos. : P


Dishonored : The Knife of Dunwall.
Three new missions, which take place in four new maps and one recycled from the main campaign. Took me ~7 hours to complete my first playthrough, but I tend to play these kinds of games slowly, stalking every NPC and checking every nook and cranny. There's also the same moral system as in the main campaign, which means some decent replay value.So yeah, I had more fun than in the main campaign... Unexpected. It still isn't Thief though, but I'm looking forward to the next one.

A good game, but it's neither what I expected nor what they advertised it as.  That whole "weak, helpless, inexperienced Lara" angle fell straight out almost immediately (it was lost completely somewhere around the time she grabbed a grenade launcher and screamed "Run you bastards, I'm coming for you") and the so-called survival mechanics were nowhere to be found.  The climbing and exploring elements were spot-on, even if the combat felt too "modern action-adventure shooting gallery" for my taste.  It's pretty much exactly what you'd want in a next-gen Tomb Raider.

Made of win and awesome.

There are a lot of opinions about the difficulty level going around. For me it felt like the character's strength and game progress depends on the character's level just as much as the player's skill and world knowledge. I played my first character for some 8 hours, felt like I screwed up my skills, started with a new one and it took me about 45 minutes to get to the same point (and almost level) I was at with the old character. Which is awesome, because there is a LOT to discover in this world, and the characters you play are just different angles to look at it.

I'm not even tired of the battle mechanics yet, even though I was using the same single weapon for the entire game (save for some 10 minutes at the beginning)[avatar]//mugenguild.com/~valodim/twi/yesyesyes.png[/avatar]

Aliens Infestation

I really wanted to like this. I mean, really, really wanted it. But it just... wasn't all that great. :(

An Aliens Metroid-style game, developed by Wayforward should be amazing, but this wasn't. It just feels incomplete and wonky. Everything feels clunky, especially combat, which isn't that big of a deal until you have to slog through the boss fights, which are just giant meat tanks that are absolutely no fun to fight. And exploration is pretty pointless, the only new items you can get are weapon upgrade packs that apparently increase the strength of your weapons, though it's not really noticeable. The only other thing you will discover off the beaten path are health packs and ammo refills, which are completely pointless since there is no shortage of save rooms that refill both. So exploration usually means slowly crawling through a vent to discover a grenade refill you don't need, and a dead end. Really puts a damper on things. And the rest of the things you find that are mandatory are pretty boring, one-use items that open up a door somewhere. Sure, in a Metroid game most of the items are like this, an item you need to bypass something or open a door and then you don't always need to use again, but in Metroid they always make the item useful elsewhere (like, I dunno, Super Bombs, you need them to open a door here and there, but they also are super useful for clearing the screen and sussing out secret passages and stuff), or make it make traversing the environment easier (Screw Attack), or what have you. With Infestation, you get such wonderful items as a welding torch that unlocks doors and a wrench that can turn off steam blocking your path. Whoopie. Even the ability to use a power loader is boring: you get to have an awkward fight with a queen that basically consist of you trading hits with her, and then you reenact the end of Aliens. Oh and then you get to use another one to... move a crate. That's blocking the wrench. Oy.

The gameplay feature of "once you die, you're dead, and you have to use another marine" is pretty cool, at least.

Oh, and the story doesn't make any amount of sense!

WHAT A WUSS.

I dunno man, I was one of the rare few who loved Raiden. Yoji Shinkawa's watercolor art style made him look badass in every drawing we saw. What killed Raiden in MGS2?? The horrid localization. If you ask me, the PlayStation MGS has some of the best voice acting I've ever heard. With that said, the lines from MGS1 were thoroughly and professionally acted out. From MGS2 and on, everything felt wooden, flat, and unfortunately... just read. Compare Twin Snakes re-dub and the original recording. HUGE difference.

Being such a fan of the first, I was severely let down by part two. The story really sucked. Here's a favorite Penny Arcade of mine that shares the same opinion:
(http://art.penny-arcade.com/photos/215143536_vAHF4-L-2.jpg)

A top-down action shooter in the likes of old-school GTA and Loaded. Had fun playing this game. Loved the neon trippy visuals and the mesmerizing soundtrack. Also really challenging. Apparently there's gonna be a sequel. Looking forward to it.

It's good to see someone else recognize and mention that awesome game. I remember having the PlayStation Underground demo disc with the first stage and Fwank as a selectable character. I played that demo to death!! The soundtrack was awesome. I actually converted that game to my PSP. It's great on the go.

BATMAN (NES)

This title is highly underrated. Yeah, 90% of the enemies are out of place and don't make sense. It's also more of a platformer with Batman plastered on the box and his sprite utilized in-game. But man, it is solid. It's one of my top favorite NES games and it still holds up very well in my opinion. The platforming is tight (especially with that wall jump) and the game is actually challenging. Great soundtrack too.

I dunno man, I was one of the rare few who loved Raiden. Yoji Shinkawa's watercolor art style made him look badass in every drawing we saw. What killed Raiden in MGS2?? The horrid localization. If you ask me, the PlayStation MGS has some of the best voice acting I've ever heard. With that said, the lines from MGS1 were thoroughly and professionally acted out. From MGS2 and on, everything felt wooden, flat, and unfortunately... just read. Compare Twin Snakes re-dub and the original recording. HUGE difference.
You're preaching to the choir dude (I share all your opinions). I was just joking :P

I bought The Twin Snakes for GC without owning a GC just to be able to play the damn game. When I heard it, I was severely let down. All of the voice acting was inferior, and they changed Gray Fox's voice ; _ ;  . Also, the MGS I've played the most times is MGS2, because SWORD and METAL GEAR RAY ... so you see, Rising is just an orgasm of a game for me.

I COMPLETELY agree with you there on the Grey Fox voice. I was kinda angered when I heard the switch. Hell, even Psycho Mantis' voice, while the same actor, sounded lifeless. I also shat my pants when I found out that Cam Clarke voiced both Liquid Snake and Leonardo from TMNT. Mind = Blown. I still play MGS regularly, even if its for just the boss battles. Everything about that game is masterful and has stood the test of time nicely. The voice acting has helped that aging process.

That game is all kinds of awesome.

 Well, my feelings about it are mixed, in one hand you got a nice story, sound is decent, good characters, and a catoonish graphstyle like borderlands, in the other hand you got some "tablet-like" controls, clumsy anims, boring level design, you do more chitchat than zombie asskickin, even when they say the game develops as how you play, well there are a lot of common features to make it way too linear, dunno, I think this game is good for tablets, Iphones and such not for console.

A 3D fighter.Based on the movie of the same name.
I love the fact that you can break opponents bones during the fight,and also that you can switch levels during battle(Fighting in a bar,kick the opponent at the door,now you are fighting at the parking lot)
Although,its glitchy sometimes(Charachters sometimes getting frozen in an animation,The neck on Halo sometimes has a will of its own and just removes it self from the body)
And its way too slow if you pick anyone who doesnt use Kung Fu

Overall,6 /10.There were better games.Much better.

In familiar terms: what if Dark Souls difficulty, Assassin's Creed parkour, Shadow of the Colossus climbing, The Elder Scrolls exploration, Monster Hunter battles and Resident Evil pre-4 survival and combination elements all went to the most bitchin' orgy without going out of control?
That's what this game is. It's the most free-form action RPG I have played yet that didn't require mods.

9/10 because I wish your main pawn wasn't mandatory. No, throwing it off a cliff doesn't count.

Fight Club (PS2)

I remember reading about that title and have always wanted to try it. Out of curiousity, of course. Even official reviewers had so-so things to say about it.

Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen (PS3)

This sounds pretty cool. I'm a huge Assassins Creed fan, and I was blown away by Fallout 3's vast exploration options. Getting lost was one of the best damned things to do in that game. I played the entire thing without a guide. Sadly, I have both Elder Scrolls and Skyrim. And Skyrim is still in the shrinkwrap.

One day I suppose...

RoboCop (NES)

I went on a Robo movie fit recently (It's my favorite film of all time) so I decided to play the NES title. The only thing the game has going for it are the cutscenes that play closely to the film, as well as the stages that follow the film's progression (Streets, Town Hall, OCP Headquarters, etc.). His arsenal is also somewhat competent. Otherwise, the game is kinda boring and rough around the edges. It moves slowly, hence boring, and some enemy types don't make any sense. Yeaaaaaaaaaah... lets have a guy who runs and jump kicks a cyborg. Or attack hounds that think RoboCop is a mailman.  o_O

Since I'm a RoboCop fan, I dig it. But that's all I really have to say about it.

Robo-Fan says 6.5/10

Otherwise, a generous 5/10

Sadly, I have both Elder Scrolls and Skyrim.
Elder Scrolls is the series, though, not a title in it.  Do you mean the original Elder Scrolls, Arena?  Or Oblivion?

Poker Night at the Inventory 2
Well, the game itself isn't anything too special, it's simulated Texas Hold'em and Omaha, simple enough.  Layout's simple, easy guide to follow if you must see what Brock, Claptrap, Ash, Sam and GLaDOS have to say, but doesn't hold your hand throughout, so better to actually know how to play beforehand.

If you know the individuals in it, the stories between them are hilarious and highly entertaining.  If not, not much to get from it.

For the dialogue, while they repeat the common lines, there's a bunch of them, so it doesn't get too repetitive (Though Claptrap's "Auto-fold activated!" line got annoying fast).  But the longer stories are great.  Things from Claptrap becoming infatuated by picturing HELPeR in Brock's chest, to GLaDOS teaching that Brock is really Ash's great-great descendant to everyone in the room singing Sam & Max's theme song to them, the conversation between them goes by so perfectly, you'd figure they've been in a show or game together for years.  And there's a few stories that cover multiple poker games to reach the end, like Brock loaning Dr. Orpheus to help Ash with Wendy; mostly with supernatural abnormalities and wedding planning.

So yea, fun week or so of listening to interesting what-if stories between them and winning some nice Borderlands 2 stuff.  Worth the $10 in my book.

Ratchet and Clank

Yes, I am really just finishing this for the first time.  I had a lot of fun with this game.  It's challenging, which I like in a platformer, and it had some really interesting level design and fun weapons.  I did however hate almost all of the non platforming parts (trespasser puzzles, board races....) and the slowdown when a bunch of enemies and projectiles would be on screen at once was really fucking annoying.  Otherwise it was a lot of fun and I'm glad I played it.  And now back to....*sigh*....Metal Gear Rising....

It's a great game;  It looks and plays excellently.  It just doesn't quite feel the same as the first one.  The mansions are all well designed, but they don't really give you the same feeling of exploration as the one original mansion.  The boss ghosts all feel really generic compared to the original too.

Liberation Maiden

Well, the game was alright. The game gives you the option of two weapons, but I rarely saw myself use the second one at all. The combat itself is nice, but can be a tad bit repetitive. You can explore the area and eliminate enemy forces to purify the area, but it's kinda hard to believe that I have time to scope out areas when they're basically shouting "THIS IS A PRIORITY MISSION DO IT MISS PRESIDENT"
The story is fast paced, and it works. The last boss is a sharp contrast from what you become used to shooting, and the game ends on a cliffhanger.

Overall, it's an okay game; nothing spectacular but it's good if you've got some time to burn and you feel like becoming president and shooting down giant nails in a mech.

7/10

That's what won me over. If it weren't Raiden, I'd give this game a solid 3.5 out of 10 (No pun intended). However, Raiden is portrayed so crazy stylish, you can't ignore it. With Raiden as your playable character set in the MGS world, the score jumps from a 3.5 to a 7.5.

And with the Grey Fox skin, the score jumps up to 8.5. He is easily one of my top three favorite gaming characters of all time, so it's a treat to have his armour as an option to play as. And for some reason, that damned animation that plays when he crushes someone's spine never gets old. I could slice up baddies all damned day with a huge grin on my face.

But I do see your point MC2. The levels are barren and the graphics, outside of some individualized character details, are severely lacking. There's also a lot of nonsense and level progression is staggered. It really is a bargain variety action title and I could go on and on all day about the game's flaws. But slicing shit up as Raiden saves it. Style over substance for sure.

The Testament of Sherlock Holmes (PC)

Well, I've been following the series, and with this last one it's all over. Honestly, I couldn't like the last game, I just couldn't, at least plot-wise. Specially since I read all of Sherlock Holmes books. They exagerated it waaaaaay too much, and the ending was just impossible to fit with the books, though I suppose that, if you like those kind of endings even if they don't fit, then you'll like it. Still, it was an entertaining game if I decided to ignore the plot, and its gameplay kept on improving in each release, something that makes me happy to see.

Best thing that came out from the series, is how to use the stupid "Watson appearing on your back as soon as you turn over instead of making him walk" to make a really funny and interesting video. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bc5x9tclNh0)

Deadly Premonition: The Director's Cut

Not much to say here.........it's almost pretty much the same game as the 360 version. That's not a bad thing by any stretch actually. The controls feel much better in this version and the enemy encounters are made less tedious now that they're easier (they weren't that hard in the original version anyway, but they did get grating after a while).

That being said, the framerate has taken a nosedive due to the "updated" graphics. The sound also tends to stutter a few times as well (hopefully these will be fixed with a patch). The "extra content" while nice, isn't much to go by either since it's just really added cutscenes (which if you don't own a PS3, you can just watch on YT). Even with the noticeable problems I still enjoyed it, though not as much as the original version. Worth getting if you missed out on the original game due to not owning a 360 though.

Another entry into the series that has its postives, but mostly negatives. The breaking weapons thing is bad and at least in Origins you could pickup all of them and take extras with you. Otherworld looked...nice, but once again they fell back to using some big ominous figure instead of thinking about getting away from the guilt/rage monster thing. Fuck that stupid running section too. 6.9/10

Alan Wake's American Nightmare

I love this series, I love Sam Lake and the atmosphere the first game put together. A majority is still there, but to fit some restrictions I imagine this game could of been better or at least cut down on the repeating levels, even if within the narrative it made sense. Great choice of weapons and they all felt pretty nice, but not completely extreme. 7.5

Well, if you've played the main Metal Gear series the codec convos in MGR are nothing.
I have, but that doesn't make the conversations any less long!

Also they kinda felt longer to me since I listened to every one of them, because I need to hear about Guyanese cuisine and other assorted tidbits because that shit is fascinating.

EDIT: that sounded kinda sarcastic but it's not

System Shock 2.

Played that back in 1999 and it's still one of my favorite games ever seen.
Review: Awesome, scary, innovative (even by today's standards), unforgiving, epic. And it has Shodan, nuff said :)

Yeah, oooooold stuff, but recently made available on GoG for $10 and a couple days later on Steam aswell. The new version is a bit updated with a new dark engine build coming from some dubious source (but certainly from a skilled developer with access to the original source code). People are suspecting that it's either based on the code that leaked a couple of years ago or might have been written by an ex-developer from looking glass or irrational and released anonymously. The engine has lots of new features and works fine on modern hardware (+operating systems) and with some 3rd party updated graphic resources, the game does look decent.

Just finished playing DmC and I thought it was a pretty fun game. I only did a quick run through of the story, so I missed a lot of the secrets. I only have experience with Devil May Cry 3 on PS2 from many, many years ago and I can't say that I really intensely preferred that version over this one. The writing was pretty bad, but it was funny/stupid enough to keep me interested and I really enjoyed the gameplay itself a lot. I personally don't believe it deserved all the hate it got.

Post by: rednavi -RETIRED on May 30, 2013, 08:54:12 am
I actually enjoyed DmC a lot and I also disagree with the overall hate the game got. The main problem in my opinion was the way the game was advertised. NT pretty much showed only the scenes where Dante was a total asshole towards everybody but as you go on you can see how he changes and matures enough to actually care about his people and is no longer that punk who says "fuck you!" all the time.

The game's certainly not shakespeare or anything but the story wasn't dense at all and I enjoyed every cutscene (The first time) and I really don't regret the 60 hours I invested in the game. I have yet to buy the DLC but meh, 7 dollars for it is too much considering how short it is so I'll wait for a sale or something.

Besides, hey! It uses the Unreal Engine so we have lots of cool mods for it by now. I bet we'll eventually get mods that change the game enough for a new playthrough once you get all the achievements and get bored of the original version. In fact there's a mod that increases the speed and that mod already warrants a new playthrough.

Personally I was a big fan of the puzzles, I thought they were a lot of fun and made me think without having to consult Gamefaqs.  Well okay, the scarecrow crap was dumb. 

@Rednavi, TempesT: I think a lot less people would have a problem with the game if its existence wasn't thought to replace the old series.  If we could have both DmC and DMC everyone would be happy.  Well okay not everyone, but definitely everyone rational.

Youyou Kengeki Musou/Enchanting Swordplay Reverie

Touhou doujin game with Ys inspired gameplay. Me, being the hardcore Ys fan that I am went ahead and tried it.
Disappointing is all I can say. The highly acclaimed graphics it has is just high quality shaders and water reflections, the actual models and textures are pretty low budget. The gameplay is a VERY watered down and easier version of Ys (Felghana to be precise), now I know Youmu's Roukanken can cut pretty much everything but if it can destroy enemy projectiles (aka their only way of attacking) then we have a game design problem. Other than that the bosses are easy, platforming is annoying and combat is too simple. Music is a bunch of power rock synth arranges of Touhou music but there's nothing too impressive although I'd highlight Stage 3 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WC14qo7_prI) and Stage 2 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YuvaSLvFbVg) as the best songs in the OST.

6/10. Falls short in many areas but is pretty decent.

I wasn't really that big a fan of the gameplay; it got pretty repetitive after a while (then again I beat it over the course of one weekend so yeah). I loved the characters, though. Good god, the characters are awesome. I especially find myself mesmerized by The Illusive Man's eyes. I could stare at them all day long. :sweetheart:

Gunpoint.

Basically a 2D version of Watch_Dogs that doesn't suck with less pewpew bits. Fun and short (took me 2~3 hours fo finish and get A+ on every mission), but not an inch of filler. The gimmick of the Crosslink (basically a mini-level editor) is really neat and allows for a lot of messing around with the levels. There's a bit of replay value in optional objectives, but no real challenge unless you're going for no violence/witnesses.
I'd say it's well worth the 15 bucks I paid for it.

GTA IV

30+ hours telling the story of how life sucks.

Main complaint would have to be how long story mission respawns take, due to being forced to exit the mission, then re-start it from the beginning.  Otherwords, the game was great.  Certainly better than expected, and I've heard good things about this one over previous titles.

Remember Me

Well. I went in expecting something good. I came back knowing I got something much greater than once thought.
The story is excellent; everything from the beginning, to the middle, to the bombastic ending just wowed me. The setting was well-thought out also.
The music fits the motif, and everything just fits together like a LEGO car.
And as much fun as it was for me to toy around with pressens to enhance my combos, I can see how some people would be turned off by it.
As for the memory remixes, they're neat additions, really. And while some people would probably want more, I thought that there was enough of them to make it work.

Overall, I think Remember Me is going down in my Top 10 favorites. It's got great story, great characters, great acting, and Nilin is an awesome protagonist. I give it an 8.5/10

Give it a shot. You might enjoy it as well!

Fairly Solid game, with nice and varied gameplay, Different characters, tons of sidequests to do, many items to collect, all with varied settings and nice music that accompannies it. Only gripes in this game was the sloppy control with one of the characters in the game, and except for a few situations, lives are completely worthless.

BIOSHOCK (Hard Mode)

This is the best FPS/RPG/Adventure game ever. I'm an idiot for not buying/playing it when it first came out. The only thing that's disappointing IMO is the final boss, Atlas. He's so fucking easy. He reminds me of old SNES/PSX boss characters. His pattern is so easy to figure out that it's stupid.

Will definitely buy a copy of Bioshock 2.

So Bioshock Vanilla was packaged with Bioshock Infinte ... WHY IS INFINITE SO FUCKING DIFFERENT? Where's the horror elements? Why did they change the button layout? WHY DO I KEEP ON DYING? :wall:

tl;dr Bioshock is a great game. 9.5/10

I heard mixed things about this game, some good, some bad. The main two problems are that one, it's too linear, and the second one is that the combat system sucks, as you have no way to deal with multiple enemies and because of that your combos are constantly interrupted, plus the combo system is not really good (they compare it with having different moves like in DMC, which is a far better option).
Title: Re: Last game you finished + 2 lines review.
Post by: DMK on June 19, 2013, 10:57:55 pm
I think a better way to comparison would be God Hand for how you can choose to assign moves, where as DMC is all about changing playstyle to weapon movesets.

Uncharted 3

This game was really fun, I could see every cliche from a mile away but it rarely ever toke me completely out of the moment. never played 2, so I went and picked it up yesterday and I can't wait to start it.

Well, as for the linearity, the story calls for it to be linear. You're always on a mission, that's usually pretty serious, and in times like those, you really can't afford to screw around. But in inFamous 2, you got a giant that's chock full of I-HATE-PEOPLE-AND-THEY-MUST-DIE heading to New Marais, but Cole's got no problem with slinging cars at Grandma Fillis and taking dumps in the streets before moving things along.
So linearity helps with the experience, IMO, and having an open world would just kinda ruin it when you know you can kick someone in the nads and steal their Vespa.

But like I said, I can see why people would dislike the combat.

But what can I say, the world of "Remember Me" looks really awesome, so I really really would have prefered it to be an open world to be able to explore it all. I don't like that I'm stuck in a path and there's an invisible wall blocking me from exploring the rest of the world. I really don't see the point of making this game linear, honestly.

The God Hand comparison was really good, btw. But if we compare God Hand with Remember Me, God Hand battle system is a lot lot better.

Well, yes, the scenery DOES look spectacular, and I can see where you're coming from. I just don't like screwing around when I know something needs to be done, and I'm more of a story-nut than an explorer. :P

And I haven't played God Hand, so I really can't say anything about it. But I do admire that Dontnod tried to do something new, and I do find fun in planning out how to use the pressens. It COULD be better, of course! I'm not saying the combat's perfect, I'm just saying it's a bit neat.

Best game in the series. Would recommend playing on Normal rather than Hard because of some godawfully frustrating combat segments--I played on Hard to trophywhore, so it's my own fault--but aside from the difficulty spikes, beyond fabulous, best story, best interface, best combat, could have done with a few less elevator challenges but... huge success that restored my faith in Santa Monica after GoW3 and I'll be trying out the multiplayer as soon as I find some people to play with.

Typical VN bull aside, I suppose I could say I enjoyed it from an intellectual standpoint, insofar as I was impressed with the accuracy and extent of the developers' research into the disabilities of the cast.  Knowing more than a few disabled people in real life, along with having some disabilities myself and everything that entails, I can say it's a generally humane and factual portrayal that, surprisingly, doesn't fetishise their afflictions the way I was hoping to poke fun at as I played it.

Of course, I'm not going to lie about crying during it.  I literally laughed hard at the early moments alone.  Game is fucking hilarious for all the right reasons to get me sent to hell, and it was totally worth it.

Metro: last Light

The game plays rather well with rare or noticeable frame drops. Each weapon looks, feels and plays differently with a certain amount of attachments for every weapon. Enemies can be rather challenging and infact difficulty spikes tend to pop up when going from humans to mutants no matter the selected difficulty. My only gripe is in how you obtain the good ending and because of it, like Dishonored, nearly ruined my experience. Why do you punish people for playing the game and if you do have a mechanic like that, for which killing even one person causes it. you wouldn't add some way to absolve it? I would say I hope the next game fixes that, but the first had that problem as well....7.1/10

Can't wait for its singleplayer expansions they have announced, but I don't care for the challenge maps or map editor.

The game is about his internal struggle, and I'm always one for well written storylines. Add in sweet gameplay sections and refined play mechanics, and you've got one awesome title to play.

I know right? I feel like the only thing that's a bit out of character (or maybe it's in character but just feels OFF in my opinion) is when you start throwing melee attacks, and Isaac yells profanity. It's like, is DS1 when he was mostly silent, you could see his struggle but the screams and the tension were your own, not Isaac's. Now that it's actually him doing the yelling, it just feels like they wanted to take advantage of the M Rating and throw random F-Bombs.

In any case, I'm actually playing DS3. So far so good :beam:

GoW: Ascension

Story mode felt kinda short, and it seems it wasn't as tested as GoW 3 since I found a lot of bugs, and hear me well when I say a lot, during regular play and the difficulty it's weird, since most of time you'll beat all the foes without being seriously harmed, then you get to that fucking elevator thing where you will die over and over again.
All these things seems to be caused by the time focused on developing multiplayer, wich sucks since I wont touch that thing at all.
Anyway, It is a great game, gameplay is fun, this is the best GoW on that department, weapons add a lot, but they lose their usefullness once you upgrade your blades, the detail level is still impressive as the previous game, and story is OK.

The last of Us

interesting storyline, but it really didn't try a thing new and was sadly filled with more cliches and tropes then most of the games that started the zombie craze. it did do them okay, but in the next one I hope they don't play it so safe. The story itself was fantastic and over 15 hours had me care a lot for what was happening. Its biggest downfall was the gameplay, which as far as stealth for Naughty Dog, isn't something they do very well. I actually had killed most enemies at one point via their overused strangling animation and 2 times they spawned smackdab in front of me, opening me to being shot for no reason. Enemies also, despite living in the same world, tossed hundreds of rounds at me without a care or reloading the guns, which was a huge immersion breaker. Overall a nice send off to the current generation, but I have hopes this game will be improved in the sequel now that it sold like gangbusters and everyone and their mom jumped on the "INFINITY OUT OF INFINITY, FLAWLESS GAME". For me, a simple 7/10 though.

A cute, well animated, under appreciated, fun little fighting game by Konami, the gameplay was slightly stiff, but it was unique. Most people reguard it as a "kids game" which it isn't, and the ending was lame(Hinting to a sequel)but it still is one of the greater fighting games, except that the emulator was a total let down.

Injustice: Gods among us

Well, after being forced to play this game competively at camp, it sucks. It was too simlar to MK, the characters we all knew looked awful, too many Batman charaters, the stage interactions being UNBLOCKABLE(Especially in Alantis), pointless stages(Wayne's Manor Day, and Wayne's Manor Night, Srsly), Aquaman being OP, when you block a hyper, it looks like you get hit, plus due to what my consulers comments toward one in particular character were, I HATE THIS GAME!

Basically a bunch of random 20 second puzzles, except there's no rhyme or reason to the solutions, mostly since it's going for a lol random type of humor. So basically it's just trial and error and the fun is seeing what happens. There's absolutely no logic to what clicking on something will do. Kicking a bomb might make it instantly explode in one segment, and in another it may be the only way to defuse it. And that might've been fine, if the humor was anything besides absolutely godawful. Which it is not. Also fun: barely visible background elements that sometimes turn the game into a pixel hunt.

Graphically, it looks like shit, and the soundtrack seems to consist of one terrible song droning on over and over again. Just a dreadful experience. And somehow they're charging five fucking dollars for what basically amounts to a flash game (least I got it for free, then?). Ugh. Humble Bundle why have you forsaken me? Now it's gonna be on my Steam profile for ever and ever. FOREVER UNCLEAN. :qq:

McPixel

This is perhaps the worst game I've ever paid money for on Steam. It's got the ugliest faux retro graphics that I've ever seen, an underwhelming soundtrack, the worst attempts at "lol random" humor and can be 100% completed in less than half an hour. If anything proves that Steam Greenlight is an absolute failure and that Pewdiepie is the worst thing ever, this is it.
Wait what does Pewdiepie have to do with—

But Pewds is awesome :3
Actually no,i must not state my opinion about him here,i will either get attacked or this thread will go completely off topic and start talking about him which happens everytime someone mentions him anyway!

Anyway

Resident Evil 1.5
This is the most BUGGIEST Resident Evil game i ever played.Ever.
The new character,Elza Walker(Finnaly a RE game with walkers),is a dumb blonde who speaks with zombies when she is effing bored(Sorry for bugging you,just dont come any closer...ok?)(She even says that to him if you kill him)
But thank god the best RE character Leon is there.
Irons is a good guy in this one(Holy shit,is that possible?) and the guy that welcomes you,almost shoots you,then dies right away in RE2 is actually a big character for Elzas route.
Using grenades freezes or crashes the game,and Flamethrower is as helpful as a spoon in a zombie apocalypse.
For some reason,throwing grenades at doggies does not crash the game.
Zombies must be shot like a thousand times with a gun so they can be killed,while they die with a knife in a couple of stabs.
I hope those guys who are modding this game actually fix all thouse atrocious bugs

Zone of the Enders 2

From the HD collection.  It's....ok, I guess.  Lip sync is apparently still completely off, voices are tolerable to annoying, and a bunch of other small things like that abound.  For the reviews saying the game's speed was all off, that seemed fine to me, though.  Only complaint on the gameplay is there's one part where you and a small army are fighting a much, much larger army of smaller enemies, at least a couple hundred, and the game lags to a crawl during that.

Story was passable.  Nothing too good, nothing too bad.  22nd century, the UNSC UNSF is out to stop some Martian colonists who are rebelling from Earth's rule, were winning until Martians make new type of mecha that outclasses Earth's variant.  Guy in charge of the rebellion just wants to be an emperor and destroy everything because he's sick in the head, but tricks colonists with promises of freedom.  Main protagonist, different than last game's, used to be part of the rebellion until he learns of its true intent, then leaves.  Finds an important one of these Martian mechs, gets symbiotically attached to it, goes to help his past enemy to stop the rebellion.

Also, I get the feeling they use the word "comrade" as much as "and" or "the" in this game.  Guess it's the translation to blame, but it just gets humorous after a while.

Remember Me

It was pretty average. Remixing a memory the first time felt so cool, but you hardly got to do it again, they sort of just left the idea alone and then the times you do it afterwards aren't nearly as interesting and the last time you do it is just fucking awful (JUST HIT ALL THE BUTTONS). The combat is fun, or at least would be if enemies didn't die before chain combos finished, but it feels a little clunky. All in all they had a bunch of great ideas they seemed to have just left unfinished and it made the game kind of unsatisfying. The story was really great though, imo, and Nilin has a cute ass.

It was awesome they thought out a lot of different scenarios and half the time I tried in each one to see every outcome. Hopefully they can do a second and really improve the combat, cameras and maybe add a ability to remix memories during the fight to turn enemies into allys, rather then just robots. I think those were more like bombs anyways.

Tropico 4 Gold: I got through both vanilla and modern times campaigns and made a bunch of sandbox islands and It definitely feels like its an improvement over 3. None of the campaigns felt particularly hard though which was mostly disappointing since you can complete all of them by gathering resources - building industry - raking in money (which is what you be doing in a city builder anyway). Tourism still sucks and you'll still never get an island to survive on it alone even in MT. Farming in MT is amazing though Bio Farms and Ranches are crazy good and Electronics Factories and Car Factories make mining worth it. Only thing I hate in MT is that old buildings get replaced and you're forced to use new buildings that use up a large amount of real estate or don't seem to make sense to replace at all.

Dragon Age 2

A very fun though heavily flawed game. Combat feels light years better than it does in Origins, though it's a fair bit "dumber" at the same time. There are few occasions where tactics are actually required, and the wave based nature of the fights got a little tiresome after a while. This was especially problematic in the penultimate boss fight where they just kept coming for like 20 minutes. Still, everything you did had some actual oomph behind it, and spells and talents were all really cool.

The dungeons weren't as long and drawn out as in Origins, but seeing the same shit over and over got old REALLY fast. I could have done with them being a tad bit longer too.

As for the characters, this is one major complaint I've heard against this game, and really, compared to Origins it's not that much different. In Origins the only likeable characters are Alistair, Morrigan and maaaybe Leliana. DA2 had Varric, Aveline and Meryl, all of whom I really liked. Anders was a whiny little wretch the whole game, and I would have knifed him in the back if I didn't need a healer. :P BTW, whoever did the voice of Knight Commander Meredith deserves a fucking Emmy.

The story could have been executed a little better, but it was still pretty cool.

7/10

Fun platformer and seeing as I don't remember the first game to well I love the characters. boos fights weren't all that difficult, but were fun. Only bug I had was at the end and...Sly's eyes disappeared during cutscenes.  o_O

Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams.

I helped this gain some serious attention when it was kickstarted for PC, and then... kind of forgot to actually buy it until it came to PS3 a year later.

It's really, really great even if the final boss is obscenely difficult and poorly designed to be luck-dependent. Highly recommend it. Well worth $15, and it was recently on Steam for as low as $3. The best 2.5d platformer I've played since Donkey Kong Country Returns.

Bought No More Heroes yesterday and its sequel.

Starts out fun and great however that starts to fade away towards the middle. You have to do jobs to get money to pay for a ridiculous fee in order to proceed to a rank fight with an assassin. It drags the game on longer than it needs to and it's just not fun after a while, the worst part is having to drive across town using that bulky mess of a bike Travis has. Some missions give a good amount of money but having to drive to the place where you get the mission, then to the mission, and then back to the building can be so tiring and it makes me just want to rush to the next level to experience something different. The levels also go from decently lengthy levels to just a few rooms of nothing but bloodfest and it can get boring after that as you can only slash away at guys in a subway station for a few times without it getting boring.

However the game picks up at Rank 2 where you fight Bad Girl as the boss actually requires more attention to beat it, especially the part where she swings those prisoners at you and you can swing them back at her, it makes you actually feel more involved as you're not just waiting for them to attack and then swinging when you can. The fight with Jeane and Henry are probably the best parts of the game and are enough to make up the tediousness of getting money for the fights. Should also mention Rank 4 was fun for its design and charm.

Time for NMH2.

NMH2 is like the opposite of the original in that there's less grind, less story, more action, more polish, and on the whole the experience feels fresh after every boss fight.

I don't know how to feel about NMH2. I love how Travis looks, I love the fighting in this more, and I think it did a better job in its design and other things such as the framerate, but I just didn't feel the same about it as I did with NMH1. Its gameplay is ten times better than NMH1, and its nice to not have to grind all that much but the expense of the items in the game (also those minigames are fun) but the story disappointed me. It moved too fast for my liking and I found most of the assassins to be pretty forgettable and meh.

Spoiler: Rank Spoiler (click to see content)

As for Alice, best level in the game and the best battle. Long level with silence and death for the most part, but towards the end the piece, "Toothpaste" starts playing, it sounds so tragic and relaxed, it fits Alice perfectly. Then the fight with Alice, good battle, music fit well with her and her death is perhaps my favorite as its enough to evoke anger from Travis and actually show care for the people he's killed more than any other time, it really makes you want to take down number 1 and end all of this. It is a shame rank 1 is designed to be unstatisfying.



One more thing, hearing the thugs scream out shit like "MOMMA", "OH FUCK", "NONONOOOOO GAAAAH", is beyond fucking satisfying, God damn does it feel good.

killzone 2 & 3

I liked them both, 3 being better as far as the shooting mechanics go. never got that attached with the characters, but near the end of 3 I really enjoyed the banter and arguments that would spill out at tougher parts. both games though felt like they lasted an hour longer then they had any right being, especially as their ends were the weakest and only 2 had a proper "boss fight", if a bad one. I'm interested in picking up Killzone HD to see where this series began and maybe the PSP top down shooter. Killzone 2 gets a 6.9/10 Killzone 3 gets a 7.1/10

Samurai Warriors 2 Xtreme Legends
Compared to Dynasty Warriors series,this one seems much more polished out,but unfortunately its also much easier than DW,which already was a easy game.
Each characther can be leveled all the way till level 99(I believe),and im out there kicking ass with lvl 20 Hattori Hanzo on Extreme difficulty
The only problem in using under leveled characters on highest difficulties is if they are slow,they stand no chance.
Also,why the fuck did Koei remove Goemon!?And why did they replace the 4th wall breaking ultra cute Kunoichi for Nene,a girl who thinks that she is everyones mother.
Since this is an Xtreme Legends expansion,all characters are unlocked from the start,including the Xtreme legends 2 only chars.
Voice acting is meh,although i do prefer their Warriors Orochi voices.Especially for Magoichi and for Motochika.
Now to da characters
Oda Nobunaga is back with his HUH before every fucking word,and his "If this is what you desire" crap,Kotaro Fuma is a fucking awesome rage machine(Chaos,Chaos,Chaos),and Gracia is probably the most cutest and most innocent thing in the whole Warriors franchise.
Samurai Warriors has less characters than DW,but since all of em are so different,i guess its ok then.
Overall,a really fun game,liked it a lot.Now,to finish off Dynasty Warriors Gundam 2

Dennou Senki Virtual-On/Cyber Troopers Virtual On (PS3, Japanese PSN release)
Very Hard is still just another way to say "Temjin and Viper will give you a hard time."
Port is amazing, may lack the Sega Ages remake content like extra Real Fei-Yen boss and novelty modes, but it runs beautifully, has no (or really small) loading times like the rest of the Model 2 Collection, and the netcode is the same as the latter meaning as good as VF5FS.

In short, Sega of America done fucked up not bringing this game overseas. Did they really think Sonic The Fighters would sell compared to what everyone waited for long enough to hold off on buying the other Model 2 ports? Besides, 360 owners are lucky enough to get Oratorio Tangram and a region-free VO Force, yet NA PS3 owners get jack shit besides Marz which nobody wants.

At least NA PS3 owners get the convenience of being able to make a Japanese PSN account and get this damn game, It's soooo gooooood...

DuckTales Remastered

An excellent trip back to the olden days, both watching the TV show DuckTales on rerun channels(I wish I could've caught the ORIGINAL runs, but...hey.) and playing the games. Visuals are outstanding and not only remind you of classic Disney, but of a simpler era of cartoons, or a more complicated one, depending on your perspective. Game plays and controls smooth, very very occasionally the pogo doesn't work, that'll prolly be patched soon anyways.

I give DuckTales Remastered an 9/10. Definitely worth the 15 dollars you'll spend to have a few hours of fun, and plenty hours of unlockable goodies, including TV show concept art among other things, especially swimming in the pool of money in the vault....so fun. Scrooge even spits out coins like the show's intro!

Finally finished this game,it took me like 30 hours.I knew who the bad guy was because i read it on the net,so i thought the ending wont leave that much of an impact on me,but holy shit,was the ending awesome.'Twas just beautiful.Also i loved all the references it had,referencing Hokuto No Ken,JoJos Bizzare Adventure,Resident Evil,The Hobbit and probably a lot of other things which i didnt get.
The game had its moments,both hilarious,thrilling and sad,and im sad its Japan only,and that we get our release next year for the vita.Thankfully there exist fan dubs.Also that last execution was cool.Waiting for Super Dangan Ronpa 2 to get translated so i can play the crap out of it,and i can already see an easy Gundam reference in it.

Code Of Princess (3DS)

I just recently beat this beat-em-up, and it's okay. You get a cast of characters that parody RPG's, but some designs are hit-or-miss. The story is actually pretty interesting when you think about it, but the writing doesn't really take advantage of it. Sure, there's plenty of interesting things they reveal, but there's no build-up to any of it at all; they just go 'oh by the way, this happened' and never really tell you why. But it's hard to expect a well-told story when they make RPG references 3/4 of the time. A small amount of them are clever, the rest vary from groan-inducing to OH MY GOD WE GET IT YOU LIKE RPGS LET'S MOVE ON. The combat system is simple, but fun, and each character has a nifty playstyle. You level up like you would in an RPG, and you buy equipment before you go on missions, which is rather convenient. The campaign kinda looses replay value after you beat it; you can choose an option that determines what ending you get, but after that, you can just go back to that very same level to view the other ending. The real meat of it is in Free Play, where you can play as almost any character in the game (fuck shit up with a housewife). The music is catchy at some points, I guess.

Overall, it's a mixed bag. The gameplay is good, and the playstyles are interesting to experiment with, but the story falls flat since it has a difficult time trying to figure out if it wants to be serious and gloomy, or wacky and HERE'S AN RPG REFERENCE, NOW LAUGH.

I give it a 6.5/10.

The Walking Dead: 400 Days DLC

Okay, this one is nowhere NEAR as powerful as the main story, but it's still an interesting playthrough. You get five character arcs to play through, and each is about 10-15 minutes long. It's interesting to see how all the stories are connected, and I like how at least two elements from the main series carry over to this one. There are also a few new game mechanics that I think are pretty cool, and it'll be neat to see if they'll get carried into the next installment.

I hope Wyatt and Bonnie have big roles in Season 2, because they're both great characters IMO

Dragon Age: Origins

I decided to give this game another chance after completing DA2. I started as a new Warden, and after sucking it up and trudging through the god awful fade portion of Circle Tower, I really started to enjoy this game. :) I still think the dungeons drag on for too long, especially the Deep Roads, but overall it was very enjoyable. There's just so much awesome story in this game (a mature story at that), I have to wonder what the hell went wrong with DA2. Origins really shows just how far that game fell.

I highly recommend this game to any RPG lover. It's best played on PC, but the console version is also great.

8.5/10

That's great to hear considering how Gamespot panned the shit out of it. Gamespot is very hit or miss with very little middleground. I love their videos and whatnot, but their reviews annoy me.
I really do think they're miss with their reviews usually. They either follow the standard opinion to the norm, come up with a bizarre one, and when the blue moon comes out, they pick the right reviewer for the right game.
I'm playing it right now, and while I don't think the game deserves that low of a score, he has some legit complaints. The dialogue could've been trimmed down a lot, especially for the retooled Amazon stage (does Scrooge have to talk about EVERY coin he finds?). There are some cool moments where the add-ons work, like Gizmoduck covering you while you get to the blockade on the moon, but the experience does feel quite a bit lopsided so far. I'll have a more balanced conclusion when I finish the game, tho.

Sly Cooper 1

After finishing the latest title I picked up the HD collection and it so awesome how well it holds up. Art style got better over time and I'm glad it moved away from that one hit die mentality, at least for bosses. Solid game, but I did encounter a game breaking bug that crashed as I jumped towards a mission. Got around it though and tons of facial issues when characters talk. Overall the game is a solid 7/10, HD version itself somewhere around 6.7/10

Duke Nukem Forever, replay on Insane difficulty for trophies.

Screw all the negative press, this game would be awesome if it weren't for the horrendous load times and glitched-as-fuck shadows, and it's still pretty enjoyable despite those things. Beginning to wonder how many 'games journalists' actually played this or just hated on it to feel superior, as it's pretty damn close to what I want from a first-person shooter. The sheer spatial awareness of it alone, having the camera locked into position when climbing ladders, being thrown down and seeing legs and arms and having a 'stand back up' animation, does wonders for me.

Solid 7/10 game and screw anyone who tells you otherwise (singleplayer only, I hear the multi is horrendous beyond belief). Off to buy the singleplayer DLC.

The dialogue for the coins is unique to each one considering if you listen to Launchpad's radio calls. Again though, easily skippable. VERY easily. It's two button presses and bam you're back to adventure. I don't really see the problem, it's a callback to people who really liked the dry humor/dialect of the show.

I agree 100%. I've been saying this from day 1.

Also the multi isn't as bad as it is barebones and dated. It would've been good if the game came out back in 2000 or whatever.

A nice remake tribute to one of the best old school FPS games. It's fun and it plays like an old school FPS.

Shadow Warrior Classic Redux

Back to the classics. I got this gem from the Summer Sales in Steam. When I was a little kid, I remember that I only played the first part, which doesn't even reach Zilla's boss. Now that I got a chance to play all the game, including expansions, I must say that it truly is a game that ages well. I highly recommed you to play it, specially if you liked Duke Nukem games, as it's nearly the same.

Saints Row IV

One of the best games I've played all year. The inside jokes and parodies are absolutely hilarious. (There's an entire mission that makes fun of Streets of Rage, by pitting your character in a 2d beat-em-up.) The game is also FULL of fanservice. I won't give it all away, but Saints Row fans will love how much this game references the past 3 games. Also, you have the option to give your character the voice of Nolan North. Literally, the option specifically says "Nolan North", cause hey, Nolan is in everything.

While the story may turn some people off, considering that a series that started off as a GTA-clone has winded up as a game where you fight aliens with superpowers, but trust me, it's the most fun you'll have.

Rayman Origins.

If you're at all interested in a 2D platformer, do yourself a favor and pick this up. It's second only to Donkey Kong Country Returns in my opinion, and it should be cheap now because the sequel's coming out next week and looks even better. Which is incredible to me, because this was really, really good. Challenging but rarely frustrating. A lot of timed challenges and such that got me really learning the patterns and the levels.

I'm just frustrated I can't dive into the sequel now. >_<

Man i love this game, and i know, most people hate outbreak, but its SH and i prefer this over RE6, and i aways think "how this game looks in 1080p" some games looks like crap but this one looks like moder games and that is impressive considering how old he is (2003), and runs nice (60fps) in pcsx2, and if you going to play get the PAL version because you can save like in REOF#2 and bots dont keeping talking everytime. :)

Duke Nukem Forever

Played this game again, this time in Insane. Insane is frustrating because the Ego bar (aka Power armor system) works terribly in this game, and there are some parts that you're going to bang your head to the desk because there's no cover or the enemies go kamikaze on you, which works well because of the increased health in that difficulty. Apart from that, it doesn't feel like a Duke Nukem game at all, it's more like a mix of different games except Duke Nukem LOL. Oh well, I needed to play this so the Duke Nukem 3D: Atomic Edition feels like a masterpiece now (and it is). Have to say, DLC was better than the main game, which already says a lot on how disappointing this game is, and was in the past.

Just played the DLC myself.

It was... a little easy? Definitely better designed overall but it felt like it was missing some of the challenge I enjoyed from my Insane playthrough. Definitely not bad though, lots of nice touches and variety, still a solid 7/10 and only that low due to load times.

The barbie car, the school bus, and the commentary of the companion had me laughing pretty damn hard,

Saints Row

Well....it certainly shows that transitional period in gameplay between the time of GTA:SA and GTA IV.  Bit of a let down ending, too.

There are still some annoying bugs, even though I see it still gets occasional updates.  Missions freezing the game.  Too many cars crashing in Insurance Fraud causing the game to severely lag.

While in no means terrible, overall it was an unsatisfying first game.  Hopefully it picked up in the second one.

May the series rest in peace and thanks Spark unlimited for guaranteeing we never see EX Troopers over here, you couldn't make the game at least not suck or universe uninteresting, one job.

The barbie car was one of the funniest things in the game, honestly. They did a good job there. And about insane, you're right, but that's mainly because there were lesser occassions of you being swarmed with enemies, something that is so common in the main game that it becomes a pain. Beating the Octobrain boss in Insane turns you insane if you didn't grab the Shrinker from the Companion Barrel secret.

Also, just finished all of Duke Nukem 3D: Atomic Edition.

It's an awesome game, seriously. I never got to play the Episode 4, and it was awesome. The DLC were fun too. My favourite was Duke it Out in D.C. I really love the level designs, honestly. Seriously, grab it, it's a game that ages well.

The main game is boring, so I don't blame you. Just stick with the Duke Nukem 3D from Steam. It seems they're going to add multiplayer to it, which sounds really good. Also, another game completed:

Alan Wake for PC

Got that wonderful offer for 2.99€ in the Summer Steam, and finally finished it. Great game, honestly. Only problem is the camera which sometimes jumped way too much, which ends in me going back and forth in front of enemies. And sometimes it kinda gets boring in the parts where you just go from one checkpoint to another. But apart from that, it's a great game. Nightmare difficulty doesn't seem hard since you can easily skip nearly all fights except the ones that force you to fight. Going to try to get all those manuscripts.

Meant to finish this back in February, but replaying the whole game with a second character to get the last level was rather off-putting, just got around to it now.

Gameplay's where this shines, because story's nothing special, characters don't stand out beyond the future's bizarre tastes in post-apocalyptic outfits, and music's not to my tastes (Here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lrFLSjIA-xY)'s basically what you're listening to every mission).  But the gameplay, single and muliplayer, is rather fun.

Ducktales Remastered

Finally sat down and finished the game (on Normal because I suck), and it's pretty okay. I mean it's not like the best thing I've played in a while, but it's not a bad game at all... That sounds bad, so I'll just do Pros and Cons

Pros
- Classic Ducktales gameplay, even adapting the simplified Pogo from the second game if you so desire (I do).
- It's really interesting to see how they updated some of the stage layouts.
- Super, super nostalgia factor. I mean, I didn't watch the show a lot as a kid, but it's still pretty nice.
- The new stages feel like they could've been in the original game.
- The storyline that they added is pretty good, although anything is an improvement over the original game's nonexistent one. At least it makes sense for Dracula Duck to be there.
- I don't have to go Transylvania 3 times (although there's a nod to it in the African Mines).
- The covers of the classic songs are really good, and the new songs go well, including the 8-bit versions of them.
- The VA's are of course great, although some of the sub voices for the deceased original actors are hit or miss.
- Glad they upped the boss difficulty level.

Cons
- The fucking Amazon level has 8 coins you have to collect, and each one has dialogue that lasts longer than finding items in the other stages (which average about three items or so). You can skip it, but...
- ... I shouldn't have to pause and select it from the menu every time I do it. It noticeably breaks the flow of gameplay. A single-button skip would've been much better IMO.
- As good as The Moon's theme song is, it felt too prominent in the covers (it's in the stage select, part of the Himalayas stage, there's a piano rendition in the credits, and hell, even the vocal update to the TV theme song has an instrumental part with The Moon's theme in it).
- I dunno if it's just me, but the framerate is really inconsistent and is either really good (60fps) or terrible (20fps).

 Overall, 7.5/10

Star Ocean IV International

A relative short JRPG, took me around 18 hours to play it through and a few of these hours i was watching cutscenes. Those, and the general story was good, some of the characters are forgetable. The fighting system is okay but nothing spectacular, the monster designs good but there are way to many variations /pallettes for them, almost no enemy is unique, they almost all have 4+ different color /stats variations.

A nice game but not worth the full price.

Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs

Good game, but I have some complaints about it:

- There are far less interactions that in the first game, which is disappointing because I liked the many interactions in Dark Descent.
- There's nothing scary about the pigs, compared to the first game with the Brutes. Btw, guess what, what happens in the trailer doesn't not happen in the game. Disappointing.
- They had the balls to reuse the invisible water enemies and just gave a silly explanation as to why they exist.
- Shorter than the first game IMO, only needed 2 hours and a half to beat it.
- Honestly, story of the first was far more interesting than the second, and explanations and documents were better.
- Removing the fear of darkness does make things really easy since the only reason you won't use a flashlight is when pigs are near. The flashlight also doesn't need fuel, so unlimited light source does make things easier, too easy IMO.
- There's no inventory at all. You don't even grab objects and then use them from the inventory, like keys or other things. Most you'll do will be to drag objects to certain parts. Really? I thought the inventory system was a good thing. Only things you will grab will be documents.
- Loading screens take a lot of time sometimes. Loading the game at the beginning can be a nightmare.

So IMO, I had high expectations for this, too much for the end product. It's a good game, but not as good as the first one IMO. In fact, they did several things (like removing inventory sytstem) that makes me feel disappointed, honestly.

Saints Row 4

What was supposed to be a large expansion for Saints Row 3 was turned into a full game and more. there wasn't much i didn't love and most detractors came from a couple of the mini activities throughout virtual Steelport and maybe one, to many game crashing bugs. the story though picked off of Saints Row 3 and hauled ass into awesome and never stopped. Super powers haven't felt this good since Hulk: ultimate Destruction and by God are they awesome. I can't wait to see what they do for building 5 on next generation hardware and i hear the PC version of this will never stop getting better. Overall I recommend this to cure that ache for GTA5 if you may have to wait or want something to get you pumped for that open world. 7.4/10

Dynasty Warriors 8
This was just a plain awesome game hands down however, I have a few pros and cons about the game...
+ The game has a lot of characters which will keep you busy.
+ The story was very well planned out.
+ Can now pull off three musou attacks which is fun.
+ The Graphics and Engine is wonderful.
+ Hypothetical paths are a challenge to get which kept me playing.
+ You can pull of a chain combo easier even with Xu Haung.
+ Lu Bu is still a killer.
+ last missing character returned. Zuo ci
- When you go to a free mode you will sometimes begin a battle on a white screen. (Xbox360 version)
- Ambition mode felt short/wasted space.
- Certain characters fight slow even with a velocity power up such as Han dang and Li Dian.
- Ai seemed dumber then previous installments. Manly just standing there letting you beat the crap out of them.
- Other doesn't have a story except free mode. (I know extreme legends is coming soon.)
Besides those little issues 8.5/10.

Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs

Good game, but I have some complaints about it:

- There are far less interactions that in the first game, which is disappointing because I liked the many interactions in Dark Descent.
- There's nothing scary about the pigs, compared to the first game with the Brutes. Btw, guess what, what happens in the trailer doesn't not happen in the game. Disappointing.
- They had the balls to reuse the invisible water enemies and just gave a silly explanation as to why they exist.
- Shorter than the first game IMO, only needed 2 hours and a half to beat it.
- Honestly, story of the first was far more interesting than the second, and explanations and documents were better.
- Removing the fear of darkness does make things really easy since the only reason you won't use a flashlight is when pigs are near. The flashlight also doesn't need fuel, so unlimited light source does make things easier, too easy IMO.
- There's no inventory at all. You don't even grab objects and then use them from the inventory, like keys or other things. Most you'll do will be to drag objects to certain parts. Really? I thought the inventory system was a good thing. Only things you will grab will be documents.
- Loading screens take a lot of time sometimes. Loading the game at the beginning can be a nightmare.

So IMO, I had high expectations for this, too much for the end product. It's a good game, but not as good as the first one IMO. In fact, they did several things (like removing inventory sytstem) that makes me feel disappointed, honestly.

The hell?

When did this come out and why didn't I hear about it until now and how much does it cost and where can I get it?

LOL, it really is a good game. Worth dancing for it.

Metro 2033

Went for Ranger Hardcore mode, and I wonder why some people think it's hard. I mean, enemies die even faster than in Easy LOL, and there's no real difference in how fast you die, except with the goddamn amoebas ugh. And ammo, just go sneaky in the parts with humans and you will see how you reach the 200 amount with any weapon if you go for knife throwing sneak kills. HUD disappearing is no trouble at all. The only annoying thing was the lack of filters, nearly all the filters you could find are impossible to grab and I forgot to grab a good amount of them before you couldn't buy anymore from shops. Oh well, now I have all achievements unlocked of Metro 2033. Explorer was a pain in the ass to get. Now I need to get Metro Last Light to see the continuation of the game.

And about the game, it really isn't that bad, but I certainly played better FPS games. They say Metro Last Light is way better, so I guess I will enjoy that one even more.

Outlast

Surprisingly good survival horror, takes the gameplay from Amnesia that I didn't quite care for and makes something actually suspenseful and fun. I was pretty impressed with the story telling and presentation, only complaint is that the ending kind of leaves you wanting more, but I assume they did this on purpose to set up for a sequel.

Muramasa: The Demon Blade, known in Japan as Oboromuramasa (朧村正) PS Vita version

I, literally, just finished this game with all of the additional endings. Kind of grind-y to get the final endings for both the characters, but the stories were quite good.  You get attached to the characters.  I really enjoyed it and people that enjoyed Odin Sphere, Dragon's Crown or any of the other Vanillaware games should try this out; either the Vita or Wii version.

The Walking Dead: Season 1

Ok, I suppose.  More buggy than I suspected from something with such high praise.  Often would talk to characters, only for the conversation to not start until I talk to someone else, then Lee just kinda teleports back to the last person he was talking too.  Frame rate would also suddenly drop to the point of freezing at least twice as well, though from previous Telltale games that's kinda commonplace.

The way conversation works kinda bugged me too.  They give you the four choices, but sometimes Lee doesn't actually say what you chose, sometimes even just grunts instead of saying anything.  Why offer the choice if he doesn't do it anyways?

Despite some technical bugs and personal annoyances, was overall enjoyable.  Just not as "gripping" as expected.

It was on the 360, what with it being free there and all.  Though I've seen similar issues with their Wallace & Gromit games on the PC.  Just seems to be an issue they haven't quite solved in their newer games and patched yet, but nothing too bad.  Good to hear at least it's not apparent on the PC version.

Though how one lags in a point and click adventure game confuses me.

The first Deponia game had some obnoxious lag in some parts, to the point of making one of the minigames impossible to beat unless you skipped it. So yeah, it can happen if they did a poor job at it.

Bunny Must Die! Chelsea and the 7 Devils

Quite a nice plot twist it had, I was always wondering where the Chelsea girl from the title was LOL. I had a hard time getting used to the fact that the characters have problems trying to turn around, plus mixing forward jump with neutral jump at the worst possible moments and bad timing in the jump wall. Apart from that, I have no complains, it was a fun game, and even though both characters go through the same dungeon, their different skills forces you to visit different areas and approach things in a different way, which makes it unique for each of them. The music was also awesome, I downloaded some to my iPod. A Must Play if you like platform games.

Zeno Clash: Ultimate Edition

I got this 3 years ago, and totally forgot until a recent sale on it.  Just ran through it now.

Rather interestingly designed game.  First-person fighter, in what they best described as "stonepunk".  Playing as Ghat, who's running away with his friend Deadra from his brothers and sisters who are out to kill him as he attempted to kill Father-Mother, their clan leader, and...well, father and mother.  Story jumps around a lot from the present as Ghat and Daedra travel to the end of the world to find somewhere to avoid Ghat's family to different moments before Ghat "kills" his parent(s?).

While what they did do, they did great  It was really enjoyable, the actual gameplay wasn't too hard or too easy, the world was beautifully made, the characters were intriguing, but....it was also way too short.  Reminds me of Mirror's Edge....which I've notice also gained some comparisons to this game.

Hopefully the sequel improves on this.  For both of them, actually.

After fighting Peach's Castle (This was just about the most stressful boss ever because damaging it is a pile of fuck.

Although, fighting Dark Bowser without the Magic Window Bro attack was kinda annoying, Ending was still as perfect as the last time I finished it.

The Wolf Among Us: Episode One

Oh my god the writing in this game is awesome. It feels like the choices you make have greater weight than they did in The Walking Dead. The only problem at the moment is more of a technicality; since I've already read a few of the Fables comics, I have a general idea of what his personality is like, so it's hard to play against his character (although usually my sensibilities win out).

Definitely recommended, can't wait to see what the next episode has to offer.

I disliked 2D KoFs,so i decided to pick up the 3D one and try it out.Im liking it so far.....would like it more if the story didnt happen in a galaxy far far away in which fashion has died and everyone wears the weirdest shit.2nd costumes look like crap,especially Hanzo Hattoris,since it looks like some kid who likes bugs and has a bunch of glue and a lot of free time made it.The voice acting is definetly terrible,and the last boss might as come out of the closet already,who the fuck dresses like that.Big tits magically got bigger...and bouncier.Its like every big breasted girl ignores the magical invention knows as the bra.What the hell?
Also i feel like some character personalities have changed a lot(Rock calling everyone a loser,and K saying totally..).Also Kulas head looks like a egg with a wig.
3.5/5...still like it better than the 2D ones.

Beat Bastion 100%. I felt pretty iffy my first run, I didn't know the game at all and I stuck with the shotgun as it had good waveclear and the knives as the poison on them let me weaken enemies and then go in for a kill with the gun or a slash. Second time around I relied on the hammer more and allowed myself to use other things such as the pistols, rifle, and flamethrower. First run was more of a safe playthrough, second was more of a HAM run.

The story was pretty well presented imo, no need to get into too much detail into what exactly the calamity is or what it exactly did, it's more focused on the lives of the characters before the calamity and their struggles and sorrow after the calamity, and I frankly enjoy that as it made me want to keep playing so I could learn more and see what this world has in store for me. The narrator was damn good in this, him and the soundtrack gave this game an incredible atmosphere, the world has gone to shit but for the most part it seems tranquil with those two things.

Only real issue is how short the game is but with the different upgrades, weapon combos, and Gods this game has some pretty God damn high replay value as you could always have a different approach to it. The weapons mostly feel well done, and some become pretty useful with the right upgrades and can save some clunky weapons. The rifle at first has a poor loadup time and isn't worth keeping in your inventory as the damage output is unrewarding, upon upgrading the weapon though it gains some good charge speed increase and with an AoE addition it's great for clearing waves from a distance. I really enjoyed everything this game had to offer, I can't really find a big flaw with it myself and it would be nitpicking.

Also the scene where the kid is carrying Zulf through a barrage of Uras was a pretty good scene, nothing was said, there was no emotion shown but the actions the Ura took and the song "Mother I'm Here," were good enough to make me like this scene a lot more than I should have.

I recommend you to do the Spear & Mortar combo. The good thing about the spear is its range and speed, and being able to attack your opponents for a decent speed is awesome. For the Mortar, one of the Lv5 upgrade makes you inmune to its blasts. Grab it, and you have a beast, you simply use it then walk around the area it will explode and see how enemies die around you.

This combo is also recommended for doing the 10 Gods achievements for Bastion. It's the best you can use.

It was a fantastic game, but hated the camera. I can Blame Platinum for that, but It would be unfair since I noticed in the Final Boss fight that there was a lock-on option that helps a lot. I listened to the OST prior to playing the game, and that gave me a different and epic feeling for the boss fights.

Eternal Sonata

Ok first off, you run around in this JRPG as Frederic Chopin (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fr%C3%A9d%C3%A9ric_Chopin), beating people up with his conductor stick thingy. Second, it is a great game.

Presentation: Graphics are ok for their age. Voice acting is nothing special, but alright.

Battle system: It's awesome! New mechanics are introduced gradually which worked really well for me and never got boring, the boss battles are genuinly difficult if you don't develop proper blocking and character management skills. I loved that I could skip the grinding parts by just focusing and playing better when it mattered, and when I failed I knew exactly what I could have done better. I also loved how there are something like 12 playable characters to the game, and almost every one of them (except beat he's useless) can work in a party. I played the final boss fight about 15 times until I finally got it, and almost each time I played with vastly different party lineups and different gameplay strategies.

Story: The story was remarkable in a very specific way to me. After the game was over, I was left with a "dafuq just happened?!" impression. I thought about it for a while, and I felt like I had a lot of puzzle pieces that didn't quite fit together. This is rather typical for a JRPG ending, but most of the time that's where it ends. BUT, I read an interpretation online, and it all made sense. The story is a dream, based on the life of a real life classical musician, and somehow they made that shit work! I gotta say I was really impressed with that.

If you like JRPGs and need something to fill the gap between two new releases, give this one a shot![avatar]//mugenguild.com/~valodim/twi/shwing.png[/avatar]

I'm kinda catching up with PS3 JRPGs right now, right now we're 10 hours into Star Ocean International.

Post by: Long John Killer on October 28, 2013, 10:47:41 am
Funny, I had just played the demo for that yesterday, curious how it actually played.  Read on it years ago, seemed an interesting concept. (I thought the whole dream thing was explained right away, though?)  Oddly enough, Beat's the only useful one in the demo.

So it turned out to be a good game, though?  Good, plans for the next RPG for me, then.
Title: Re: Last game you finished + 2 lines review.
Post by: Valodim on October 28, 2013, 11:19:28 am
That it is a dream is explained right away, yes, but it's about the meaning of the dream. There are some political issues in the dream world, and frederic joins the party to help with that stuff, but that's just the "day job" of the party, not the meaningful part.

Beat didn't scale well at all for me. He's a ranged fighter but all you can do is hit X and he'll shoot some target, with less than poor damage output. Unlike Viola, who is also ranged but skill-based. Play her well and she has triple the damage output any other character can manage. Man I remember doing a happy dance after finally getting Viola back into the party after it was split for more than one game session for me. Those guys must have done something right I thought if I am genuinly happy to see a character back (and not even because the others sucked so bad).[avatar]//mugenguild.com/~valodim/twi/pleased.png[/avatar]

We started playing Tales of Xilia, but like any Tales game before, the battle system just doesn't work very well for me and the story wasn't intriguing enough to keep us going. Star Ocean is looking good so far, even if the pacing is very off.

Anyone got more recommendations for JRPGs on PS3?

Sonic Lost World ( 3DS )
+Every level is unique and not just ripped from the Wii U version
+The physics are at point, compared to previous Ds Sonic games
+They added special stages to get Super Sonic instead of finding the Red Rings
+Fully playable Super Sonic for the first time on a Handheld Sonic game
-The cutscenes are horrendously low quality
-On top of that, some weren't even used
-Same with some music
 ~(nickpick) The motion controls are finicky as hell
~i am sure that the special stages were designed by Satan himself

All in all a decent game, although let down a bit by some of the bad points.

REALLY good JRPG.

started playing it, had a "something different came along" situation something like 20 hours in.

The battle system was ok, but had problems with balancing. iirc I beat most bosses by running away with Oliver, casting fireball once in a while. There was also little encouragement to switch familiars, some very early ones were so much stronger (due to constant leveling) I felt I'd have to grind for at least two hours to get any other up to speed.

The story also wasn't terribly captivating. Characters, dialogue and presentation was ok (especially Drippy's VA!), but Oliver was just being dumb about stuff all the time, and I felt like the antagonists were just dicking around rather than actually threatening anybody[avatar]//mugenguild.com/~valodim/twi/filly_whaaa.png[/avatar]

Dead Space 3

Did a co-op run of it, and it's surprisingly long. The atmosphere is so much different from the first 2, but I thought it was a pretty fun time. Wasn't actually that scary after awhile for me (even though pretty much everything scares me). There was a lot of fluff disguised as content though, like blueprints for shitty guns and the duplicate weapon modules and parts, you usually can get a really good pair of guns only a few hours into the game. I liked it, it was fun, I hardly ever finish co-op runs of games.

Disgaea D2

Had a ton of fun for around a week with the main game, the story is good as always in Disgaea games, the new additions and characters are again making the game more complex ..the AI is as stupid as always though. This series needs a really cool multiplayer mode in the future.

Am at the post game stuff now and guess i will play this game again and again from time to time to finally beat Baal etc.

Injustice.

Finally started playing this, just beat the story mode. Very impressed with a lot of the changes since MK, though the story mode felt less in-depth the new meter burn moves and the minigames are really nice. And that the uppercuts actually uppercut. For all the complaints about man-like faces, they look good in the actual game IMO.

Alice: Madness Returns.

More naked geishas with wasp heads crying blood than I last recall in Wonderland.

Story's what you'd expect of American McGee.  Dark, twisted, morally questionable, hard to look away from, and debatable if you actually "won" at the end.

Graphics are good, the world for the most part looked and felt like Wonderland falling apart, minus two levels, one very Japanese oriented, the other....rather spoiler heavy, but certainly not Wonderland.  Annoyingly, while they have the option to stay in Alice's outfit through the game, or to have it change as the game progresses, the original outfit losses its details and textures at any given moment where it'd other words use the new outfit, so you're better off having it dress you in steampunk or as a siren or whatever new comes up automatically.

While the usual platforming and puzzles are done well enough, the combat could use some polishing, though.  Especially the dodging, tended to use it and warp right into the enemy more often than not.  Wouldn't be an issue if dodging and counterattacking is the main focus of combat in this game.

Still, enjoyable game.  Definitely worth reading the books/poems and playing the first game prior, though.

Call of Duty Black Ops 2

Reaaaaaally hate the Strike Force missions, specially when you defend. Apart from that, I really really liked the story, specially that it gave you so many different choices to end the game. It removes part of the linear gameplay it has, which made me happy. I really wish some of the weapons in the SP appeared in MP, there were some that were really cool. Probably one of the best story modes in the Call of Duty games.

Now on to Multiplayer. Since I was present before the patch that added all the content, I quit the game and never returned until now. Need to get some Prestige using Nuketown before heading to other gametypes, since it's the easiest way to get XP by easily fullfilling challenges there.

Metal Slug XX

Not impressed... at all. The game lacked any charm the original games had, and the soundtrack was pretty forgettable. Some of the bosses were okay but a lot of were mediocre. The amount of deaths in this one is ridiculous, they throw everything at you, and unlike other games were dying was mainly your own fault and bad timing the deaths here mostly there because of death traps or just being in a situation where you were fucked. I never thought the Rebel Army would be an actual pain and threat to beat but God damn this game made it possible. I had been wanting to play this for years but now I feel that perhaps it was better off I didn't, it's just meh. Not a bad game really but as an entry in the series it's pretty lackluster.

The Last Remnant

While I certainly enjoyed it, and want to recommend it, it has some rather glaring issues.  It has too much focus on stat grinding in certain places to continue, while not actually acknowledging this to the player.  You will run smoothly for some point, only to find bosses or events completely out of your character's range, while you've already passed the optimal training grounds to get tougher to pass them, requiring you to restart the game.  Not fun, considering this can happen a few times.  To add on to this, it has terrible cases of lagging in fights, dragging out already long animations, making fights take forever.  Definitely worth using a guide if playing.

Now, for the positives, the story was very entertaining tale on political reliance on questionable power, following Lord David who's forced into his position at a young age due to his father's death from such powers, and Rush Sykes, who you play as and gets mixed into all this.  Characters were enjoyable, outside of lag issues, the combat was new and fun to try, and there were unanswered questions left open for a sequel. (Though by now, I'd guess it's a no-go on Squeenix's part)

Paper Mario: Sticker Star.

Impressive use of the paper gimmick and the 3DS's 3D, less RPG elements than I remember from past games but I didn't mind. All in all it felt kind of bland/less memorable than other Mario RPGs, but this is the first time I've actually played one on a portable system, so I don't mind?

It's like I kind of want to say it's bad because it wasn't great, but it was very good enough that I can't, really? I'd be harsher if it was on a console, picking it up to play for little bits now and then is kind of a different experience from sitting in front of a TV for hours.

I recommend it, it's very fun, I enjoyed the vast majority of my ~24 hours with it, but it isn't gonna rock your world. Highly recommend if you're lacking 3DS games or like Mario RPGs, otherwise you won't lose much if you pass on it.

Anyways: Finished Pokemon X. It was ok i guess. The online stuff is amazing, and breeding perfect pokemon isn't as tedious as it was before, but the game was pathetically easy. I only grinded/catched for 5 minutes and I strolled through the game. I didn't have fun playing through the damn thing, nothing felt rewarding, and trying to make competitive pokemon isn't what I'd call fun or an experience. Gonna start up Dillon's rollin western and Killzone Shadow Fall i guess.

Dragons dogma dark arisen

im still not 100% done with the game but im on my second playthrough as a strider this time. Didn't know this game was so short i would have just done everything on my first playthrough. I breezed through this game because i didnt know of how short it was , so i kept level grinding and went to the dark isle or whatever and didnt know it wasnt apart of the main story lol. I spent hours grinding in the island until i wasnt able to go any further because of my level at the time, which was around like 20 ish and my pawns were  at the time, rook and a level 1 mage(at the time i didnt know side pawns couldnt level up). I got to the point where this chained cyclops kept killing me with one hit so i had to give up and go back to main storyline and escort mercedes to the captial.


It took my friend less than 20 minutes to start a new game and be at the capital lol

Dream Team does not "suck ass." Trust me. It's not Bowser's Inside Story but it's damn good albeit simple and slow at the beginning(tutorial bloat near the start but it pans itself out and throws you in full throttle afterwards.) After that it's boss fights with cool dynamics and awesome looking animation + a smooth OST. Anyways, my review is gonna be something interesting.

VIRTUAL BOY WARIO LAND (prolly gonna be 3 or 4 lines, sorry...)
I was initially a bit scared to play this but honestly, if you find an emulator and rig it up right to not have 3D, this game is a masterpiece. The visuals, while simple, animate very smoothly. The main draw of this game is the exploration. There are a lot of secrets for linear looking levels, and it's a joy to play. The bosses are challenging to a degree, almost like Wario Land 4 but not quite there. The music is awesome and funky, albeit sometimes quiet. The best part is, once you beat the game and get all the treasures, a second quest opens up for you to enjoy, with more spikes and less powerups.

Overall Score : 8.5/10

Konami Wai Wai World:

A japanese only NES game, where Konami's characters are kidnapped, and you have to save them one by one to unlock them. I bought this game and it's sequel through English reproduction carts for $20 and after playing the first one....eh, it wasn't worth it. I haven't touched the second one yet, but the first makes it so you have to be near the end of screen for the level to scroll, but the enemies come out of nowhere and you barely have any time to respond. This, plus that the characters you start with cannot do anything making it way too difficult to unlock other characters, really ruins the game, which is otherwise a mediocre game experience. But, hey, Simon Belmont and Mickey from Goonies.

3.5/10

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag

It certainly improves on pretty much everything III set out.  Minus snow environments, because obvious reasons.  Edward's story was wonderful, but the modern day story was rather lacking....too small in time spent and things to do.  Mostly there to say "Hey, Shawn works at a coffee shop and Rebecca is a courier". (Mirror's Edge reference in the making #1000, guys)

The sailing, being one of the main focuses here, does not disappoint, but upgrading can be a bit of a chore, finding ships with the right cargo needed.  But it's a minor disappointment compared to how fun the rest is.

Amnesia: The Dark Descent

I agree with people that say this is the scariest game ever. For me atleast, it's the scariest game I have ever played. You know a game has reached a new peak in horror when you try to play it for more than half an hour, and you start to feel slightly uncomfortable. Dark corridors, monsters appearing in every corner, tense chase sequences, disturbing themes, etc.

I felt the ending to be a bit anticlimatic mainly because I was waiting for the portal to open and it was boooooring. I'm still surprised at how I managed to evade every single Gatherer in the game without getting hit even once (with the exception of the Chancel trio of course). I did look at some guides in some sections mostly because of some items and puzzles, but even still the monsters are fairly easy to avoid. There are some tricky sections though, like the monster behind the door in the storage room or the escape from the sewers where most people have a tendency to turn back after reaching the door, because well one would guess the monster is on the other side after hearing the Brute roar, BUT NO, it's the same Brute that you tricked speeding like a motherfucker behind you oh god run!

Haven't played a game like this in a long time, in fact I don't think I've ever played a game like this. Truly one of the best horror games out there if not THE best.

Scariest bits of the game IMO:

- The 2nd Kaernk chase (running away from an invisible water monster while closing doors behind you ffffff)
- The Storage Room (basically where shit starts getting serious and monsters start showing up everywhere)
- The Prison (chase sequences are almost unavoidable because the monsters pop up around every corner)
- The Sewers (omfg walking on water makes so much noise and the Brute chase ffffffff)
- The Choir (most dangerous section in the game BY FAR there are like 5 brutes or so patrolling the area, and this tick red fog can't see shit and turning on your lantern only makes it easier to be detected and you can only hide behind the pillars omfg I hate the Choir)
- The Torture Chambers (mainly the ones in the Transept, the Judas Cradle will haunt my nightmares forever ;____;

Good story, good gameplay which is different from 3-4, love the humour because of the side missions (lol manbabies in Kamurocho) and expansion of adding one more city for a little more discovery. The enemies are a little more challenging and the soundtrack is amazing.

The Typing of the Dead: Overkill (Steam)

Okay, I have to admit, I didn't play House of the Dead: Overkill, so I'm reviewing it strictly from picking it up for the first time.

Holy shit was it fun typing out words at rapid-pace. It felt a bit easy until I unlocked Hardcore mode, though. But in terms of gameplay, I really liked how it was set up.

What really shines in the game, however, is the grindhouse aesthetics. The series is always mocked as being corny with bad voice acting, and now there's finally an excuse to have it as such. The difference, however, is that it's actually really good in fitting in with the environment, especially Isaac Washington being a pretty transparent Samuel L. Jackson clone (but an awesome Samuel L. Jackson clone at that).

I still haven't unlocked everything yet though, so I'm playing through it again.

There's only KB4 and I know I shouldn't be telling people "learn japanese so you don't have to wait for impossible localizations" so I'll tell you that you can still enjoy the game regardless since it's relatively import-friendly outside of Smashtalk. Fuck that messed me up bad, though getting MANLY SPIRIT back up is quite easy. Also the JP games aren't as tongue-in-cheek as KB3's localization.

As for missing playing KB3, I can sympathize about the broken PSP. I played it on my newly acquired (and awesomely cheap) Vita and got it when it was on sale for $7.50.

Battlefield 4


Yes, I'm one of those weirdos that actually buy these games for the single player. Not for the story, mi d you, but for the set peice filled shooting gallery. With that said, BF4 gave me exactly what I wanted. The controls are great, the guns sound magnificent, and of course, being a frostbite 3 game , It's beautiful.

The only problems I had with the game was my disobedient squadmates. I'd spot someone that was trying to flank me while I concentrated on a sniper, but I'd end up dying by the hand of the same guy I tagged while my squad shoots at someone else. Sometimes they won't fire a shot until you tell them either, but they are more than willing to give away our position by darting out into the open.

I've also experienced save file corruption during the Campaign, but thankfully i was only about an hour in at that point.

Let us be weirdos together because I do the same! I had just finished my normal playthrough and still need to see the two other ending. While I didn't experience the save bug, i did have an odd one popup while during a mission it counted my points, but didn't award my medals or weapons. Which is a shame because its the only one I have left to get my Gold medal on.

Piston it away has some really bullshit jumps to get back to the death route, fuck those levels.
Well it IS the last death route after all.

Warped had some insane death routes as well near the end.
Just beat Warped. What death routes? Those things were pussy shit.

Only thing that made the game worse was the racing levels but besides that it went a lot smoother, double jump and hover spin break the game.

Now that you mention it, I recall experiencing the same bug as well on the second to last mission as well. Kinda weird. I've seen 2 of the endings so far, but they're not really that different.

There's only KB4 and I know I shouldn't be telling people "learn japanese so you don't have to wait for impossible localizations" so I'll tell you that you can still enjoy the game regardless since it's relatively import-friendly outside of Smashtalk. Fuck that messed me up bad, though getting MANLY SPIRIT back up is quite easy. Also the JP games aren't as tongue-in-cheek as KB3's localization.
So should I get KB4? I'm kinda confused tbh. :(
Yes if you know Japanese, prepare to get your shit wrecked at smashtalk if you don't.
Also I was wrong, there are two more installments after 4: Kenka Bancho 5 and Kenka Bancho Bros. which is supposedly the manliest entry yet.

I KNOW WHAT I'M GONNA GET IN THE FUTURE

EDIT: Another thing that could catch your eye is basically the spiritual successor to the series, GachiTora!, where you play as a gangster teacher ridding the students in his school from their inner demons. You are basically a badass exorcist beating kids and peers up PSYCHOLOGICALLY to save their reputations and their grades.

Persona 3

Well I just finished this sucker aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand... My god that last boss took me like 2 hours to kill D:

During 59 hours and 30 something minutes of gameplay, I failed to actually get a girlfriend (it doesn't help that I was trying to get in pants of very chick that was showing mild interest in me). I maxed out all my characteristics though.

My only gripe with this game is the fact that you only get 1 turn per round during battles. Thankfully this was fixed in P4. I don't really know what else to say, that boss fight really exhausted me.

9/10. Go play this game if you haven't already.

Manos: The Hands of Fate

No, not the movie. This is a fangame that you can buy here (http://www.manosthehandsoffate.com/).

I walked away from this game pleasantly surprised at the amount of work put into it. It's a retro-style game, but done right. As far as I can tell, the music and graphics follow the NES limitations, and the controller layout is similar as well. It also follows the rule that NES adaptations of movies usually do in that a lot of the times, anything and everything will be out to kill you, whether or not it was in the source. Fortunately, you have a hand gun to shoot stuff, which you can power up into a shotgun.

This game loosely follows the events in the movie, but there are a lot of nods to other terrible movies, namely ones that were featured on Mystery Science Theater 3000. For example, one of the recurring enemies is a levitating, invincible screaming skull (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Screaming_Skull), and another one is the jumping green hobgoblins (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hobgoblins_(film)). The most notorious ones, however are the ones featured in the boss fights. There are two boss fights dedicated to fighting The Giant Claw (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Giant_Claw) and one fight (in my opinion, the toughest) against Ro-Man (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robot_Monster). I fail to see what they have to do with Manos, but they're amusing to see in action nonetheless and actually are funner to fight than the Manos characters' boss fights.

In terms of difficulty, this game feels a bit lopsided. The first two/three levels are almost insultingly easy, but after that, it makes the jump to really difficult really fast. So those 10 extra lives you got for not being a total idiot? I guarantee the first time around this game,  you will lose all of them on Level 4/5 alone, even after collecting Crystal Hands to max out your health. In what is simultaneously a good and a bad thing, all the statues that drop items will ALWAYS drop certain items, and the game has a tendency to set check points nearby 1-up statues. There is no disadvantage to getting a game over other than starting the current level from the beginning and losing all your points (which don't really do anything anyway).

So in my opinion, while the game did an okay job of being a tribute to Manos, it did an excellent job at atmosphere for an oldschool NES action/platformer/shooter.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna order from Torgo's Pizza.

The Wolf Among Us, Episode 1

It's only 1/5 of a game so it didn't take very long (couple hours). The time it lasted though was pretty awesome. It's a Telltale game, so voice acting and story telling are superb. The art direction was better than The Walking Dead, and the story is captivating so far buuut it's hard to tell at this point, might just as well not be going anywhere?

Injustice Gods Among You - Ultimate Edition (PS3)

This was one of the games i did not buy at launch because i guessed there would be another version later with more characters.

Injustice is kinda similar to Mk9 which is not a bad thing. The graphics look better, the music is super boring, and the story mode relative enjoyable and sometimes fun but a bit short. There are the many Star-Labs missions now and those seem to be pretty challenging, will take a lot of time to get through all of them.

Personally i find the characters being a bit too small for a fighting game about super heroes and villains but that was probably needed to do because the stage interactivity stuff. The gameplay itself is more than solid, would give that a 8/10 ..my only gripes are that the characters could all use some more standard moves and combos and wakeup strategies but that was never a strenght of NRS / Midway.

A nice game, grabbing it for only 40 euro was a good deal!

Super Mario 3D World

Absolutely amazing. Everything about this game is literally perfect. I thought Super Mario Galaxy 2 would be my favorite 3D Mario game for ages, however...this game surpassed it. The pacing is absolutely seamless and lends itself well to replayability and enjoyment, each level fleshes out a new idea long enough to leave you satisfied and not tired of it, and the controls and music? Both extremely smooth. If you're interested in Smash Bros or a future WiiU game, pick this game up with it. You just might be surprised.

Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2

Baring story gameplay was fantastic and worked much better then the first. It had been a while since I played the first, but the way they did bullet trajectory it wasn't always a sure fire hit, but a "best guess" of where the bullet would land. Not a bad thing because it didn't make it a "move red dot over guy, kill him" thing. Solid 7/10

Not the brightest spot in the history of this awesome franchise but if played improperly can lead to alot of trouble later on much like its proper overhead strategy games. I only wish there were more missions to send your troops on and more side missions. Solid 7.2/10

The Legend of Zelda: Link Between Worlds

It's a really nice throwback to A Link to the Past, with majority of the items and dungeons still there. I think I completed it waaay too fast, probably due to me remembering where most of the original dungeons were. The dungeons themselves are nice, with some rooms retaining some methods to navigate while still being fresh and having to adapt to walls. Buy it if you're feeling nostalgic.

Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood.

I posted most of my thoughts here (http://mugenguild.com/forum/msg.1873680) earlier in the playthrough.

TL;DR,
Pros:
- Crossbow, Assassin Recruits, concept of '100% synch', much improved side-style content esp. War Machine missions and final level of Da Vinci DLC

Cons:
- One city instead of many, frequent graphical glitches when traversing it too fast, less story and gameplay innovation compared from the jump from 1 to 3.

Additional comments:

My opinion of it has improved greatly over the second half, my end assessment is it's slightly but only slightly better than 2, like 1-2 points on a scale of 100. Came in with a huge grudge against it for being 2: The Boring Stuck In One City Confusing As Hell Edition, but it won me over. Debating jumping into Revelations just to see wtf happened in that ending. I don't. I mean. What? I. Why? HUH? WHAT?! ;.;

Watching credits right now. I believe I have 100% sync and all the singleplayer trophies, but I think it said some stuff unlocked in some shops when I finished Sequence 8, so we'll see. Screw the multiplayer.

(Probably a 91-92/100, I guess?)

I thought I said don't see it until you've beaten it. :(

I keep wanting to start over Assassin's Creed from the beginning to where they're up to now...but then I end up getting distracted and end up messing around in Budokai or Borderlands or whatever, and never get around to it.  Now I'm tempted to at least play through Brotherhood again, though.

...Or at least read the book for it.

As a game, the core mechanics are better than AC2. It is indeed a better game. Better graphics too. BAREBONES GAMEPLAY = AC:B is better.

As a package, that game should have never been $60. It's an expansion with 60% te reach of the story of the original AC2. It's a continuation, derivative, short, not nearly as epic as AC2, which made me really interested in the franchise. AC2 was an abismally big step forward from AC1. AC:B was barely a refinement from AC2's core.

If it wasn't a different game in itself, and it was actually called AC2.5, I'd accept it easier. It was mareketed as if it was a completely new game, and it's not. It's inferior to its predecessor in scale.

Haven't played Revelations yet, though. Maybe soon, when I get it cheap.

@Long John Killer: I didn't look at your spoiler, I meant the ending of Brotherhood!

@walt: Short? No. I spent substantially MORE time in Brotherhood than I did in AC2. It is a longer, better game. I completely shared your opinion until I actually beat the game and found it to be more in-depth with substantially more content. I had 32 hours in AC2 and almost 50 in ACB, 100%ing the singleplayer with all DLC in both cases.

Don't get me wrong. Levelling up your Assassin Guild does take a lot of time, but the amount of main story missions is substantially smaller. Pretty much the Viewpoint Synchronization was replaced by Bring down the Borgia Towers, which were no more than 20 total, whereas Viewpoints + Secret Areas + Banks + 100 feathers + fucking 10 towns just offered su much more to do in AC2.

I 100%'d AC2, and it took months. I was pretty much done with AC:B in 3 weekends.
Title: Re: Last game you finished + 4 lines review.
Post by: Snakebyte on December 12, 2013, 11:34:11 pm
ACB had viewpoints, and not all of them were in towers. There were 24 total. There was also still secret areas, borgia flags, fixing Rome, chests, feathers, courtesan/thief missions and assassin contracts, Cristina memories, guild challenges, Copernico and Da Vinci DLCs (which were WAAAY better than AC2's missing sequences), War Machine missions...

And... AC2 didn't have 10 towns. Florence, Forli, the one in Tuscany, the Villa, and Venice?

And you know... 100% synching everything.

EDIT: Also leveling up assassins doesn't take any time at all. You stop at a pigeon thing and flip through some menus and send your guys off while you fuck off to do something else.

Link Between Worlds

Pros:
- A solid 2D Zelda game after HOW many years? with a ton of good innovations.

Cons:
- Short and easy.

Additional comments:
Stamina gauge, Hyrule/Lorule shifting, wall merge mechanic, GREAT ideas. Good utilization of more buttons for more functions. Lots and lots of good little changes. However, I didn't like the item renting or the any-order-ness of the dungeons. Going through the overworld and 'unlocking' the next dungeon is a good chunk of what grants length and variety to a Zelda game, and almost all of that content was gone from this one because of how they chose to play it.

Still, when my only complaint for a game is that there isn't enough of it, it was a pretty damn good game.

Bye bye game. Finished you just in time to prepare myself for Winter Sales. It was a nice experience, that I recommend to everybody. There's still some things I wish they stop doing, like using 2-D sprites with no movement at all. I do hope Persona Q allows them to improve that more. Plus more map elements would be totally cool too, I don't want to fill the map with orange points to mark where certain parts are.

Splinter Cell: Blacklist

When I started playing a few months ago the entire game had left a sour taste in my mouth. From the use of the boring and dull Unreal Engine to replacing Sam's original voice actor and seemingly confirmed reports of "FUCK STEALTH AGAIN, BANG BANG SHOOT POW". I dug in though and started and sadly all of that still rings true. Even if you stealth every mission there are some you're forced into confrontations. At least shooting can sorta feel nice if you have proper upgrades and you know, don't focus on stealth upgrades for your suit. Started to enjoy it in the end, but the game just locked up at the end "fight" pissing me right off. Overall a 5/10. Nothing overly good and nothing overly bad. Just bland for a SC game.

Kara no Shoujo

A visual novel about murders, with lots of gore in it. I really like gore if it's done well, and it left me satisfied in this case. I wish you could have saved some of the victims, but you can't, which can depress you if you liked some of them. The True End made me sad, honestly, and for what I've heard about the sequel, I guess I was right in believing that there's no hope for a certain character to be alive at the end of the novel, even if it's not told what happens to it.

Oh well, I should try to switch to a more happy-tone visual novel now. Hope I can find one easily.

Muv Luv (Extra and Unlimited)

Extra: Generic visual novel ordeal with really wacky situations and characters. I did the mandatory routes to unlocking Unlimited: Meiya and Sumika. Both routes are the same with one scene being different and who you get to bone. The H scenes are bad.
Unlimited: Main character wakes in a different verse where aliens attacked and there are mechas. Better than Extra, and it does a good job showing the constrast of a normal peaceful world and a world at war where everyone's ready to die, overall much more interesting but it leaves many things unexplained for the sequel to pick up. The H scene (only played it once, all routes are the same except who you get to bone) was worse than Extra's.

7/10. It's the necessary evil for the superior Muv Luv Alternative, but I enjoyed it at some point at least.

Mario & Luigi: Dream Team Bros.

What else can I say except that it's a beautiful looking game with colorful surroundings and characters and a good few moments when it caught me off guard and made me giggle, Dreamy Bowser was a wonderful and challenging fight that was a perfect final boss for this.

The only down-points of the game is that it can lag at times which can really put me off compared to where it's smooth all the time and that Giant Battles tend to get me stressed with some of the times with slow input commands. (I'm looking at you Giant Bowser battle :I)

Wonderful game although and it's definitely worth a purchase, I would consider playing Hard mode/Game+ but I'd rather not.

Monster Hunter Portable 3rd (PSP/PS3(HD Ver))

It's a very awesome solo experience for fans of the series, both relatively new players and seasoned veterans alike.
The monster variety is there as a perfect blend between Freedom Unite and Tri, and the return of the weapon types missing from Tri is incredibly welcome.
Another change one could fully appreciate is the lack of swimming involved, removing any of the tedium that Tri's easier core gameplay had, while adapting to Freedom Unite's harsh difficulty earlier than expected.

That is not to say, however, that Portable 3rd's learning curve is steep, just that since it's a solo-centric game, you wouldn't expect the Guild Quests to be as long as they are. They are roughly more difficult that vanilla Tri's online quests so having friends is recommended if you wish to save time. Because of this, monster health in Guild Quests is balanced to slight equals or bare differences, the only main differences being how much damage you're bound to take before dying like a bitch, like suddenly getting one-shotted by Nargacuga's tail slam the moment you reach High Rank.

Those worried for lack of G Rank quests have nothing to fear as the DLC quests have you covered for most of your challenge needs. That, and there are custom quests you can make with tools found on the interwebs so there's that too.

The game is far from perfect, though. Tri's awesome bowgun customization has been removed, certain species from Tri like the Lagiacrus have gone missing due to lack of swimming, and while having the Zinogre, Nibelsnarf and Tigrex replace them as compensation is really awesome, two of those return for Tri Ultimate which seems like the better investment.

But 3U has swimming back and it doesn't have Tigrex so it's an ultimately worse game. KEKEKEKE

If you get this on PS3, there is netplay built in granted you have a wired internet connection as it has integrated AdHoc Party (Japanese version), and connections are super smooth with players from all over.

S'a good game. If you haven't played it already, you should go get it. Unless you have 3U. But ehhhhhhh.

Assassin's Creed Revelations

Sorry, all the opinions I was given before I got to this game made me really, really overanalyze it. Skim past if you don't care.

Pros:
- Opening cutscene and first sequence were amazing.
- Increased focus on presentation, story, cinematic gameplay sequences in general; the Galata Tower challenge mission in particular blew my mind.
- The major NPCs felt well-acted and well-characterized, as opposed to Brotherhood's lazy c/ps from 2.
- The end mission with the parachute chariot chase was fucking brilliant.
- Eagle Sense, press left analog stick and aim, as opposed to Eagle Vision, hold triangle.
- No more wanted posters. Ever. Anywhere. Notoriety system cleaned way the hell up and made less annoying.
- Weapon wheel separated into two distinct wheels for primary and secondary weapons.
- Fixes the problem of the crossbow being overpowered; there are now reasons to use the crossbow, the gun, and the throwing knives.
- I primarily used knives, which felt right, and was how I played in 2.
- Everything about the Hookblade was great, and felt like a thing you always should have had.
- Making the minimap have terrain, in a faux-satellite view, makes everything SO MUCH BETTER.
- Overall graphical improvements; Constantinople is gorgeous, and the Ishak Passha armor (sp?) is pretty as fuck.
- Controls feel more responsive than previous installments; I run into people and things or up walls when I don't mean to, far less often.
- Constantinople is easily my favorite city in any of these games. It's large, it has the verticality Brotherhood was lacking, it has its own character and enough uniqueness to not feel repetitive and bland, it feels like buildings are larger, streets are wider, rooftops are easier to traverse...
- Bomb crafting was actually very neat and useful! I was not expecting to like it but I did, even if I didn't use it all THAT often.
- Guild Challenges are still kind of a shitty idea, but they were improved from brotherhood.
- The Altair segments were very well done, though I wish more of them had real gameplay and not 'Old Altair Stumbles About; The Mission'. However, I still like the story those ones told.
- I like the structure of the story overall; splitting the main objective between doing shit for Yusuf and doing shit for Sofia (date, book, secret location) felt well done. It was a good formula that never quite felt formulaic.
- The Den Defense was a nice idea. I don't enjoy it, but it was a good consequence for the notoriety system, and to make the assassin recruitment matter and feel less generic.
- The side missions (though there are less of them overall) don't ever feel generic. I particularly enjoyed the scripted assassin recruitment missions, and the master assassin missions. In fact, that's my general observation of the game; nothing (animus fragments and guild challenges aside) ever felt generic, everything felt real and relevant.

Cons:
- While it looks good sometimes, the fog/sand filter in use sometimes in Constantinople is easily seen when rotating the camera, and looks lazy.
- I was used to this from Okami on the PS2, though, so I didn't particularly mind.
- Cappadocio felt rushed and lazy.
- I kind of... ran out of game? This is the first installment where the money system didn't play out properly. I finished the game with several things left unpurchased (books and landmarks) and will have to leave it on for a bit to get those trophies, I guess.
- The Animus Fragments were unusually tedious and there was no in-game reward for collecting them.
- It's noticeably shorter than Brotherhood and 2; I had 32 hours in 2, 45-50 in Brotherhood, and maybe 25 in this.
- The ending didn't do much for me; Brotherhood's had more impact.
- The Lost Archive DLC is awful.

In summation, this game is everything I want out of this franchise, except, well, more of it. In comparison, Brotherhood was flat, bloated, and boring, like something that should have been an expansion of 2 and was pushed into a full game by Ubisoft. I am so happy this game had no horses and no countryside segments. It had a proper city. It wasn't full of bullshit country trails and cliffs and fucking impossible-to-climb Colosseums. I feel retroactively ashamed for enjoying Brotherhood; this very clearly showed me everything I really disliked about it. One city is fine when it's a proper fucking city. That said, the ending felt rushed, like they ran out of content. I felt like they had a higher commitment to quality but as such could only do so much in the time they were given to make the game and that left it a bit lacking.

tl;dr, the first 60-70% of this game was a 93-94 for me, and then it trickled down to ~80 by Sequence 7 or so.

Wow.  That ending totally bummed me out. :(

I wasn't expecting the bad ending to a punk rock side-scroller that's so over the top and funny, hinting you'd rock the world to death on the bad one to end on such a sad note.  Now I want to go back and get the required skill to earn the good ending, but my character doesn't want to get the skill anymore.  Luckily there's two more separate playthoughs with different endings to get the good ones on.

Bioshock Infinite: Burial at Sea part 1

This isn't half bad compared to the base game and its nice to have multiple weapons at the ready like in the first two games versus that dumb two gun limit implemented in Infinite. Elisabeth design isn't bad either, but Something about Rapture feels off though and try as they might it doesn't capture the look or overall feel of Bioshock 1. Fuck the ending to this though, I didn't really get it. 6.9/10

But...Ezio coming to peace
That's the ending to Revelations, not Brotherhood.

A Link Between Worlds

Really fun Zelda, to the point that It idn't feel dull like some sections on Skyward Sword (mostly when you did backtracking in that game). I liked how the game lets you chose what to do next; that encouraged me to get all the items... although I'm missing 5 heart pieces and the red mail :(

Sorry, clarification; I really liked the Ezio and Altair aspects of the ending. The message relayed to Desmond was what really didn't do it for me.

It was great until Ezio went offscreen. My bad. XD
