And after getting past Ornstein and Smough, does the game become a bit easier?

To be honest I can't really remember. I don't recall having an awful lot of trouble throughout the game later on, but then I was a massively overleveled tank. The Prepare To Die bonus area bosses can be a bit of a challenge though.

Yeah, since I didn't get very far I might just remake my character. I feel like I would end up getting to something locked then kick myself over not picking the key. Happens in a lot of games, actually.

It really is a mystery, but one I intend to solve (AINT NUTHIN gonna make me give up on this game). To be honest aside from not being able to go macho on the skeletons everything else about the game was cool. I like how the opening cutscene basically sums up the game from the beginning of time. In some other games, notably the Elder Scrolls 4/5, right from the get-go there's like all these different warring factions and kingdoms and shit and I feel like I just don't know anything about them. And also the castle you first get into has an almost Ico-like strange atmosphere and emptiness about it. Interesting game, no doubt.

The story is hella obscure. There's a few spartan conversations with the odd person you meet and the descriptions of items gives info on the game lore but largely the story is something you really have to hunt down for yourself through that. And I agree with the Ico comparison. The game is very lonely and minimal in many respects. I love the lack of music outside bosses, having only ambience everywhere else.

Not a happy chappy. Turns out Assassins Creed Rogue is only coming out on PS3/Xbox 360 and I only have a bloody PS4! Seems no port to PS4 is expected

PS4 players only get Assassins Creed Unity which has none of the awesome naval combat featured in AC III and IV!

Total suckage.

Anyone tried Wasteland 2? Seems boring as fuck from what I've seen on YouTube, but it gets pretty good reviews from almost everywhere. I'm conflicted whether I should bother checking it out or not.

I've played about 10 minutes, but it's one of those "what the hell am I supposed to click on and how the smeg should I set up my characters without getting pwned" sort of game so I cheesed it and quit. I suspect once I sit down and learn the ropes I'll enjoy it. I've heard it's got a lot of weak points though.

Already enjoying the new Dark Souls DLC more than the others. Maybe because a snow-drenched castle is instantly awesome, but it also seems to be more horizontal than the other two, which felt like vertical labyrinths more than anything else which doesn't do it for me. I prefer to explore a landscape, not a dungeon.

[EDIT]

Killed the first boss. Was far too easy.

They should have just stopped at the second one which refined it enough to be enjoyable. Now they're just churning them out like they're on a factory line.

Unless it's dinosaurs with lazer eyes and rocket launcher nipples I'm not interested. Actually that'll probably be a DLC.

The naval combat was new (only since ACIII) and I really enjoyed it and the exploration component.

I have to admit, I was making fun of myself too, cause you could say exactly what I said about the latest Transformers and I consider that either the 3rd or 2nd best movie ever made.

I'd say Call of Duty is the only other series I can think of that cranks out games with little change at such an alarming rate. Battlefield is getting there too actually, although still not as bad as the others.

I do have to admit the last couple/several CoDs and the last Battlefield left a lot to be desired.

I'd be happy with a different setting (bring on Turkish invasion of Cypress in 1974 or Falkland Islands 1982) let alone expanded gameplay options especially in terms of control of support assets.

I heard it's got satisfying arkham-esque combat which is a great sign but also extremely repetitive.

Yeah it's very Arkham-y. There's also slow-mo bow and arrow gameplay, as well as stealth so it helps to break up the potential monotony. It all works extremely well.

Speaking of Ass Creed, I'm not all that familiar with the franchise, but why can't they do a game set in the future? I think it'd be a lot more fun climbing futuristic skyscrapers than pick-pocketing peasants.

That's what I don't get. The premise of Assassin's Creed is futuristic (or at least technically it's set in the modern day, I really haven't been following the the story for a long time now). I figured after 2 or 3 games it would logically lead on to having a character in the modern era. The likely reason is that they'd no longer be able to use the same template they use to make all the others. In other words it's too much work for them and they wouldn't be able to churn out another yearly iteration of the same game with a tacked on novelty element.

Watchdogs is a modern style "open world" game. I still haven't started it as I'm working on AC IV (87% done).



I like the historical setting. Far more interesting than some sort of modern thing.

It also wouldn't work for Assassin's Creed when every man and his dog would be packing a submachine gun or shotgun. Notice every AC game is set in a period where firearms aren't that effective (limited range single shot flintlocks) or no firearms exist and hence you rely more on swordplay?

Though personally I'd like a 1930's style open world game, preferably set in Mediteranean with evil Nazis as protagonists. Basically an Indiana Jones III setting!

I've always wanted a Grand Theft Auto set in prohibition era America. Use Tommy guns and instead of stealing a car, you could just hitch a ride on the sideboard.

That would be awesome. I'm surprised they've not done it as it's such an obvious one too.

Ok the sword fighting in Shadow of Mordor is pretty tiresome now I've played it for a bit. This is especially true with more difficult enemies where it basically turns into a QTE. I groan now every time I have to fight a boss-type enemy who is immune to stealth and ranged attacks. The game is a triumph of animation but lacking in actual gameplay at points.

You have no idea how perfect the OST is. The best ever made imo.




It's also a very Souls-ian game, in many ways. Minimalism, ambience, obscure story, massive bosses.

Actually I listened to the whole OST just before I posted that. It was good, as good as it can get without context. I've only seen like 5 minutes of SotC but i've always considered them as brothers of sorts too. This summer i'm actively going to try and seek out a copy, as come February there will be no time for it (BB, Witcher, MGS, Batman etc) which means i'll have to postpone it another 6+ months.

It's not that special, IMO. It just happens to be the only game of its kind released in a good while. KotOR and maaaybe Mass Effect scratch that same itch except it has a fantasy setting and a top-down combat system. It's a good solid game, but the only thing really exceptionally great about it are the alternate beginnings. Worth starting the game several times, and you don't have to play past that point if you don't feel like it.

Bought Stalker: Clear Sky during the summer sale as the 1st two weren't on sale. Just bought Call of Pripyat for half price. Now we wait on a Shadow of Chernobyl sale (since it's the first installment). I can finally play something similar to fallout that isn't fallout. Hopefully i'm not disappointed.
