Finished Saints Row 4. Not a perfect game by any means but holy shit, never before managed a game to make me laugh so much.

Finished God of War III. Bloodier than the previous games.
I really liked how it ended. Will there be a sequel? It feels like the story already ended in III.

Meh, I'm in the middle of the vanilla version. Up to the first boss fight now, and I can see why the complaints. It's utter BS, completely different genre than the rest of the game. I've only head-shotted some people with a silenced handgun so far (before I got the multi-knockout aug), and maybe once had to resort to assault rifle against a few baddies. I haven't taken any offensive or defensive augs, just exploration-related. It's fucking hard on the highest difficulty, and not fun at all. It's not Deus Ex at all to be forced to walk into a closed room and get caught from behind like a dumbass.

All in all, it's a good game but rather pales in comparison to the original. The AI is still very dumb for a 2011 game, and I hate how guards make a general alert the split-second they spot you. There's quite a lot of hand-holding in directing you to alternative solutions and secret paths, and the area design is quite repetitive. It's still a quality game, and I like the openness as well as the clever use of augmentations (though what's up with only charging energy reserves with candy bars?), it just could have been polished some more.

They might as well be; the boss fights were outsourced to a different company for some reason.

After finishing up Dead Island GOTY (AWESOME, AWESOME GAME) on my lovely Playstation 3 I noticed I didn't really have that many hard trophies left in Dead Space other than the Impossible mode one and One Gun. So I cleaned all the ones other than those 2 up, strapped in and threw on my man diaper (admittedly the game is slightly less scary 3rd time through but certain parts always get me like the lady cackling who shoots her brains out) and did the game on impossible with only the plasma cutter. it wasn't really that hard, basically you die if shit touches you but it's really a matter of managing fights/stasis well, try to keep shit from being behind you and if there's too many of the little tentacle fuckers around stasis them and kill them one at a time. Really though, Dead Space is a classic game, one of my favourites ever for sure.

The hardest part was when the plasma cutter wasn't upgraded a lot. Since the damage sucked had to pump serious shots into things even just to take their arms off and you run out of ammo real fast. Don't wanna have to be using the piss poor (albeit badass) melee attacks in impossible mode I can remember there was maybe 3-5 parts in the game I really had to try a few times to get through. One I was out of ammo and running around like crazy and the game decided to autosave on me, so it kept reloading me after an autosave checkpoint with no ammo and enough health that one shot would kill me. I ended up using kinesis and throwing a fire extinguisher at the fucker that was chasing me around to kind of knock it back, then went in and had to do the old curb stomp on his head. then he dropped some ammo and I took it from there but that shit was hectic. Also I admit there was times in that playthrough I had no ammo and like on the way to the tram I would just stasis shit and run past it to get to the next level and the store lol.

No. His very first sentence clearly states that after finishing Dead Island, he picked up Dead Space.

Yeah that was typo free, if not easy to misread just cause the games both start with "dead" and coincidentally they are both very enjoyable games.

Probably my favourite game of all time. The boss fights got a lot of stick when it came out. I don't mind them though.

Not worth paying for the DLC, very disappointing, adds nothing to the game.

Went through the whole game to get the achievement for not killing anyone, didn't pop as didn't know that tranquilizing someone in the face killed them. Bummer.

Tried doing the same before I killed someone just by breaking through one of the walls and getting an instant kill cut-scene. Fucking stupid.

Yep! Did that one too. Should have bought the aug that lets you see through walls. I'm so stupid.

I realize the game has flaws but the positives outweigh the negatives. I will try not to spoil it for you in case you continue playing:

POSITIVES
+ The story line and voice acting are AAA quality.
+ The music/score is outstanding, perfect for the time and place. Michael McCann's best work.
+ Art direction/visuals are breathtaking.
+ Many different paths to take...replay value extremely high.
+ A ton of augmentations to choose from.

NEGATIVES
- Boss fights, no choice but to fight/kill them (I believe that's been changed in the Directors Cut).
- Hacking becomes very tedious.
- Inventory small, need more space for items.
- Hubs feel "small", a lot of walking around, no interaction.
- Gun play average at best for a FPS.

This game is in my top 5 of all time. The political/ethical debates at hand seem lifelike and the gameplay, graphics and sound only enhance it.

I'm curious: did you people actually ike it more than Deus Ex? Sure, HR has ten years of technological advancement on the former, but the map design was a lot better. It all felt more expansive and open-ended. I just kept getting lost in the Hong Kong waterways and stumbled into meat lockers and hideouts that were just there for the heck of it. And as far as personal taste goes, the original felt darker and more destitute. Plus, Anna Navarre and Gunther Herrmann were cooler than the baddies that broke into Sarif.

Definitely a 8/10 game so far, I'm not ragging on it. There's just a little too much handholding when it comes to exploring (NPCs openly chat about secret routes that are easy to find anyway) and the AI is really dumb.

kind of clear but not really cuz he didn't add a period... He had two different topics in one sentence. Whatever though

I liked Dead Island as well. I tried playing the second one and I could barely start it. I liked the combat and gameplay in the first one but the second is literally the same game with a new playable character, and a few more mods, or to any normal person, it was just an expensive expansion pack. Never really played Dead Space but I know its good.
sorry disregard this I see what you did there

So I finished Burial At Sea.

Damn, I wasn't disappointed, more like surprised at how good it was. Reviews are fine I guess and everybody is entitled to give it whatever the hell they want. Me personally, probably around an 8.5 out of 10. Took me around four hours to finish.

Spent the last week being totally absorbed in XCOM: Enemy Unknown. What a thoroughly brilliant game. Thankfully I just noticed that Shadowrun Returns has just been released, so that's perfect to keep my strategy RPG binge going.

Been playing NHL 14 recently. I don't care enough about the game to go into hardcore mode and do all the ultimate team jazz and everything but season mode and showdowns with buddies when they come over are as good as it gets. Be A Pro is alright as well, but also another thing where there's a lot of micromanagement and ain't nobody got time for that.

Todd Bertuzzi going macho leading the league in goals in season mode is great lol.

That's actually my favorite aspect of the game. I hardly even play anymore, I mostly just manage. I wish they expanded more on the Euro and junior leagues, though. :/

When I do play, my favorite thing to do is headhunt star players with my goons to start a fight, or hit players from behind into the boards. I'm not sure what this says about me as a person.

Yeah, I'm not saying I can't see the merit and if anything I applaud them for adding those options and that much depth to the game but I'm just not that into hockey in video game format as I am in real life format to go there

I have started my season as the Red Wings (priority move #1: see ya Jimmy Howard, hello Jonathan Bernier and Dave Bolland, sorry Toronto) and I love how my team is shaping up. It's basically everything good about the real Red Wings, and with Howard gone and me being able to control Quincey's turnovers, everything bad gone

don't worry though, there are plenty of late hits, shooting at the goalie after offside whistles, and steamrolling the other team's stars for me as well, you aren't the only one. Claude Giroux got Kronwalled straight to the IR in our first game against the Flyers. considering how rarely the real wings fight these days it's ridiculous how unrealistic my team is. I even managed to get Pavek Datsyuk into a fight in 4 on 4 cause Bertuzzi wasn't on the ice to enforce - which he won against some random defenseman on the Blue Jackets. And it's just a badass hockey fan ongoing wet dream to have Todd Bertuzzi as my enforcer/top offensive player.

Having fun with NHL 14 brings me back to the good old days, the only other NHL game I used to play was NHL 2004. And let me tell you, the Red Wings had some unbelievable guys in the squad that year, including my favourite NHL player of all time between the pipes, the Dominator.

Someone help me.

There's this game I'm thinking of. I don't know the name, I don't know the genre, I'm not entirely sure on the platform (but I think it's a PC game). And I'm not sure what the cover looks like.

Anyway, the name is two words. It's something a little unusual that doesn't make the genre obvious. Maybe it has to do with metal, the ocean, space, machines, something cold? Steel something? Maybe not. The cover is, I think, some kind of a dark machine or metal, blueish or grayish perhaps. It's something I've seen mentioned on lists and in connection with other games (not sure if space shooters, sci-fi RPGs, stealth games, strategy, simulation or smth else), so it's probably a bit of a cult classic.

WHAT IS THAT GAME!??

Unfortunately not. Mind you, I don't actually know the game's genre so it could be anything. There was a connection to some other game/genre, so maybe I just thought it was with Deus Ex/System Shock II and came up with those genre ideas. I made a mental note to check it out when I had the time, but now I don't remember it anymore.

Playing Baldur's Gate II. Never managed to get into any of these fangled PC isometric CRPGs before (think Dragon Age is probably the closest, which I enjoyed a lot), but seeing how revered it is I thought I'd give it another proper go. Made it out the first tutorial dungeon place and it's ok. I really don't like the combat though; so clunky and feels so inelegant and imprecise because of the whole d&d rolls thing and generally feels and looks like a mess of not really knowing what's going on. Much prefer turn-based strategy to this real-time pause / unpause malarky (at least for these kind of games). Going to stick with it though as the characters seem decent and I suspect there's a good story to be had. Rather pleased to hear David Warner and Jim Cummings doing voice work.

But yeah, went for a Halfing, Fighter/Thief multi-class so will see how far that gets me.

The series is probably in my top 3 games of all time (I like to play both games and expansions in the BGII engine, with the BG Tutu mod). Maybe it's because I'm a D&D and FR geek. I love the combat and the whole teambuilding aspect of it. It's more flexible and, IMO, easier and clearer to control than Dragon Age (which was also a very good game). But yeah, I wish there was an option for clearer turn-based game. For all its many flaws, I actually liked the hardcore D&D strategy experience of Pool of Radiance: Ruins of Myth Drannor.

But overall, I like the 2e AD&D rules system. It's more restrictive than 3e (Neverwinter Nights), but gives you tough choices. It's really fun to build characters with it. Despite the infuriatingly unintuitive THAC0-system to determine chance of hitting.
