Title: What videogames are you currently playing?
Post by: G:The Last Man on July 31, 2008, 02:12:36 PM
What are you guys playing on your handheld/console systems at the moment?

I found a steal on Amazon a week or so ago, and picked up the following games for my PSP.....

Final Fantasy:Crisis Core - Been ages since I played any RPG....love the FFVII characters too!
Patapon - A beat Rhythm game with strategy to it!
Puzzle Quest - A puzzle game with RPG elements added!

These games are pretty much on every must-have list for the PSP, and so far I'm thrilled with my purchases......I'm still looking for a deal on the God of War prequel on the PSP still though!

Metal Gear Solid 4 - best of the series, definitely, and possibly best game released this year.

and

Bioshock - just picked this game up a few weeks ago, and boy, those of you who talked this game up were so right.  Excellent game.

I wanna get my hands on MGS4 so bad.....in fact, I almost purchased the 80gb PS3 MGS4 bundle.....but then I thought PS3 or going to Comic-con?  Maybe Xmas time.....any chance Sony is going to give a price drop on the system?

...any chance Sony is going to give a price drop on the system?

I read somewhere that they were actually.  Or maybe that was the 360.  Can't remember for sure.  Hopefully they will and you can pick one up.  I love mine.  Ratchet & Clank, Resistance, MGS4, and soon to come God of War 3.  So much goodness to be had there.  Not to mention blu-ray.  8)

Just finished Puzzle Quest (on the 360 since you can download it via XBox Arcade), and finished every single quest on Oblivion.

I think I'm going to take some time off until Fallout 3 comes out, as that will take up the majority of my time at the end of this year.  Oh, and Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2.

Playing Call of Duty 4's multiplayer every night for about 4 hours.

Other than that, nothing. I'll be getting a PS3 in September, so I think I can hold off until then.

Or at least until Madden is released on the 12th.

Guitar Hero: Aerosmith. Not as challenging as previous installments, and I probably enjoy it more than others due to my Aerosmith-loving heritage, but dang, do I love the music. And it's still Guitar Hero.

That'll tide me over till Star Wars: The Force Unleashed next month.

Currently playing...Call of Duty 4 online on the PS3.  It's really, really freakin' addicting.  I haven't done much with the single player campaign, but I LOVE shooting people online.  Friggin' ROCKS.

When not smokin' fool on the inter-webs, I play NASCAR on my PSP.

Those are about the only two right now.  I'm waiting on Resistance 2, which should be out soon...and Madden 09, I think.  Maybe.

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. About 34% through, and loving it quite a lot. Can easily see why the rest of the game world loved it too; I can never look at a wall the same again, for now I feel remorse that I cannot run across them due to that stupid force of gravity.

I'm also saving up for an XBox 360 Pro, though that will be a ways off.

Megaman Star Force Leo and Megaman ZX Advent on my DS. Chipping away at Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean on my Gamecube (level grinding to be able to kill Giacomo and his team. God I hate them!).

While I didn't really care for Mega Man Star Force, Mega Man ZX Advent is an awesome game. I approve wholeheartedly.

Especially since it manages to take the Mega Man formula ( something that's always criticized for being repetitive ) and turn it on its head; instead of getting the weapons of the bosses you defeat, you actually get to turn into them. And while being a giant stingray that's immobile on land might not be practical, it is awesome.

I really like Bifrost only because of the plethara of jokes that can come from this delightful shortening of names. I like Star Force and its acompaning timeline because it's not as depressing in tone as the Classic timeline and has a nice touch of RPG which I love.

Fallout 3, Resistance 2, and still trudging through GTA 4.  I gotta tell you though, Fallout 3 has taken up a lot of my free time, what little there is lately.  Incredible game.  Resistance 2 is awesome as well, but Fallout 3 just plays so fluidly and combines many of my favorite gaming elements together in one neat package.  Its digital perfection.

Although I've started playing Fallout 3 on my 360 the game that has me by the jugular is LEFT 4 DEAD.  OH MY GAWD!  I love this game.

How much, you ask...  Let let me put it this way.  I suck at 1st person shooters... and I'm not really a fan of playing games online (I'm more of a "play by myself" kinda gamer).  But with L4D?  I can't get enough.

I am so getting too old to be staying up til 5 in the moring playing video games.  Ah to be young again.

I'm playing The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap on Gameboy Advance now, and I'm freaking loving it! It came out in 2004 I think, or somewhere near there. But it's new to me! It's actually the first new Zelda game I've played since Link to the Past (SNES) or Link's Awakening (Original GB), whichever of the 2 came out last. So it's been a while. And I love that it's all in the old-school, top-down, sword-swinging style! I never owned a N64 or Gamecube, so I haven't played the 3D Zeldas. But I can't imagine it actually being a true Zelda game if it's in 3D.

Minish Cap is an awesome game, and you should definitely get Phantom Hourglass if you own a DS!

But don't be so quick to dismiss Wind Waker, Twilight Princess, and especially Ocarina of Time.  These installments take the Legend of Zelda to new heights of action and adventure, and have such a richly detailed environment that really adds a deeper playing experience in the land of Hyrule!

Game Cubes are cheap out in the market, and you can play all three on the Gamecube!  Put it on your holiday list, and let me know what you think!  I'd be willing to bet that you would sing a different tune!

While the original Zelda on the NES set the stage, I don't think you can consider yourself a true Zelda fan if you deny yourself playing Ocarina of Time.


Title: Re: What videogames are you currently playing?
Post by: Ed209 on December 06, 2008, 04:15:13 PM
Link to the Past is the first Zelda game I ever played and it hooked me, big time.  I have played every Zelda game since, and I wanted to echo Glenn's opinion that the 3D Zelda games are definitely not to be missed.  Trust me when I tell you that I have spent more hours on Ocarina of Time and Wind Waker than probably any other games I have ever played (with the possible exception of Final Fantasy 7), just because I loved exploring the worlds that much, and I wanted to find every hidden item, every secret, every weapon there was to be had.  Do not miss these games if you are a Zelda fan.  And if you don't want to invest in an obsolete console like the Gamecube, don't forget that the Wii plays Gamecube games as well.  Play on!


Title: Re: What videogames are you currently playing?
Post by: Rich on December 31, 2008, 09:10:55 AM
Well, now I'm playing Resistance 2, The Bourne Conspiracy, COD:  World at War, and COD4.

Hmm...I think I'm leaning more towards shooters lately.

Also, might be picking up Fallout 3 with some Christmas cashola.  We'll see.  Not like I need another game to play at this point.

I'm fully absorbed in Animal Crossing: City Folk, Rock Band 2, and LEGO Batman. It's a very weird mix of joy and frustration, building a house, AGAIN, for the 3rd time now in Animal Crossing.

And Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia for DS is freakin' unbelievably difficult.

Post by: Sith_Chimera on December 31, 2008, 12:26:36 PM
Picked up Mirror's Edge and Left 4 Dead.

Mirror's Edge is absolutely amazing. Definitely going to be one of those titles that doesn't sell insane copies but instead becomes a cult classic.

Haven't had a chance to really absorb myself into Left 4 Dead.

Also playing Madden '09 and COD: World at War.

I'm playing Viking: Battle For Asgard on XBox 360. It's a pretty fun action game with some RPG elements. It's actually done pretty damn well. Completely overlooked due to Oblivion and God of War.

When I've had enough of hacking up demons, I got WWE:Smackdown vs. Raw 2008 also for the XBox 360. I liked the last two, especially since the inclusion of Storylines for the wrestlers. I'm hoping this one turns out as good.

I also picked up Spider-Man 2 to play through again. It was a pretty fun game. I'm thinking about picking up the 1st one too. #2 was onlye $4.99 at Gamestop! So if I can find #1 it might be even cheaper, has to at least be the same price, since 2 was better.

I've been absorbed into the Challenge Mode alone. I've complete the basics for Ken, Ryu, 3 of the Basics for Balrog and 2 of the Hard ones. Also, one of the Hard ones for Ryu as well as all the basics for Dan.

Great game. I use Balrog as my main and I have a pretty good win/loss record with him in Ranked matches.

I'm playing my new Nintendo DS. Right now I'm playing The New Super Mario Bros. and Resident Evil: Deadly Silence. Both are great games! RE: Deadly Silence is a remake of the original Resident Evil. The classic that started it all, and it's a helluva game. The New Super Mario Bros. is an all-new 2D Super Mario Bros. game with 3D graphics. It has all the stuff you'd expect from a Mario game and a bunch of new stuff, I'm having a blast!

I got a few more games, but haven't gotten into them yet: Metroid Prime Hunters, Super Mario 64 DS, Zelda: Phantom Hourglass, Mega Man Zero, and Yoshi's Island.

I've downloaded several games from the PS Store.  I'm mostly playing WipEout HD and PixelJunk Monsters.  Both very addicting.  I also like Super Stardust HD when I'm in a sort of arcade game mood.

I've got the downloadable Street Fighter HD game too, but I rarely play it anymore.  It was the first game I downloaded, but I've been very disappointed in it.  The graphics are terrific, but I've been unable to beat the toughest opponent in the game: the d@mn controls.  It appears that the objective of the game is not to beat the opponent on the opposite end of the screen as I remembered from my days of playing this in the arcade, but rather to execute the various button combinations on the controls and hope, by pure chance, that the character happens to display the intended move.

I've been working to get all of the achievements on Ghostbusters: The Video Game. I almost have them all, I just need 4 more.

Actually playing BIOSHOCK again ... but on the PS3 this time around. It is a little different, but playing through to get to the bonus stuff.

How different is it?  Good way or bad way?

A little easier, but I think that is me being familar with it.  ;D
Graphics don't POP as much (Not bad, but you can tell a slight less crispyness).
Load times are a lot longer in between levels.

Not too far in as of yet, only on third "level" so that is all I know right now. It is still nothing bad, just I think the 360 version is better. But this has bonus stuff at the end.  ;)

At least the game is good enough for you to warrant a double dip purchase!  I haven't played Bioshock in about a week or so, but hope to get back to it soon.

I got Punch Out! and Guitar Hero World Tour for Father's Day, so that is where my gaming time is being monopolized lately.  These games are pretty much pick up and play games that I can leave and come back to at anytime though.

Finally caught my "Moby Dick" (you know, that's sounds dirtier now that I've typed it) and got all 1001 Light Seeds on Prince of Persia.  Now I'm going through the Epilogue again to find all of the frescos.

Plan on starting Gears of War 2 soon.

And I've been throwing in a few bouts with Punch-Out for the Wii.

I gave up on the Ghostbusters achievements. 46 out of 50  for 910 ain't bad. I traded that in and got Prototype and Bioshock, since I couldn't make it through the first time due to it being a rental.


I'll post what I think of Prototype later, I've heard good things and that it's a surprise hit.

Picked up Halo 3 and Madden 09 for the 360.

New playlist:

PS3:
COD4
GH: Metallica
High Stakes Poker
Bioshock (playing for Trophies)

360:
COD4
Left 4 Dead
Halo 3
Madden 09
The Force Unleashed
Marvel Ultimate Alliance

(the last 2 I've played through on PS3, but want to get the Achievements on the 360, so bought em for a song and re-living some fun times!)

Right now I'm playing BioShock again for the first time. First time around it was rented, so I wasn't able to invest a lot of time into it.

This time, though... I'm taking my time and soaking in the atmosphere of Rapture. Great game.

Also playing Prototype. Pretty good game so far... actually surprisingly good.

Got the Limited Edition of the newest Prince of Persia for the 360 off of ebay for 16 bucks and it arrived today, I love these games ever since the franchise was reinvented for the PS2/Xbox with "Sands of Time". This one is no exception and the landscape of the game is gorgeous.

Hah, that's the same two games I downloaded. It's fun to switch between Special Edition and Classic Monkey Island views. Just completed "The Three Trials" after 4 hours of playing... I love old school point-and-click games like this.

Marvel vs Capcom 2 is bringing me back to re-learning how to play it competitively. After much trial and error between characters I already know, my online ranked match team consists of Strider, Jill Valentine and Sentinel. That team alone has a ranked match win/loss ratio of 24/13.

Overall, I'm 49 wins and 45 losses.

Since it's such a rarity... I geeked that I finished a game.  I never have time or the patience to finish my games anymore.  Just finished Gears of War 2.

I think I need to give my Nintendo Wii some lovin' so I'm gonna start up on Zelda... and maybe finish up Eternal Darkness for the Gamecube.

Spider-Man: WOS. I beat the game and it autosaved on the ending cutscene. Had to start the whole thing over. Still, got the best ending this go around instead of the bittersweat one.

Decided to go back and finally try and finish Eternal Darkness one last time (for the true ending)... went back and played some Viewtiful Joe for the first time in I dont' know how long... and wanting to buy Batman.  Why do I work at a videogame store?  Why must it tease me so?

Batman has been getting rave reviews from all media outlets. USA Today had a feature story on it the day it came out. I'm going to finish up beating Dark Sector for the 360 and then I'm gonna trade in Guitar Hero II, Prince of Persia: Limited Edition, Dark Sector, Madden 09 and Prototype to try and get it and Madden 10 for cheap. Perhaps I'll get two for the price of one.  ;D

Title: Re: What videogames are you currently playing?
Post by: Mitch on October 05, 2009, 07:41:16 PM
Just started playing Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2.  Haven't gotten very far yet, but so far the storyline is very good and the graphics are also well done.  The much-hyped fusion powers are also really cool.  However, there are some disappointments:

1)  The camera.  Much of the painstakingly and beautifully rendered detail of the characters in this game is all but lost because the camera is locked in a position far above them.  There is no zoom and the overall camera control is less.  Half the time I have trouble telling the members of my team apart.

2)  Voice acting.  Small gripe, but it could have been a bit better.

3)  The RPG aspect has been watered down even further with less options in this game.  Also there is only one alternative costume per character.

All in all, it's a pretty fun game so far.  I'm still early on into it, but I find myself missing the first one a bit.   :-\


Title: Re: What videogames are you currently playing?
Post by: Sith_Chimera on October 05, 2009, 09:38:21 PM
Like Iceman, I've also been playing Ultimate Alliance 2... while it follows the Civil War storyline for a bit, there's a larger scale threat, so it's not exactly everything we've already read before.

That being said, the iconic scenes from Civil War, like the battle between Pro and Anti-Reg at the Stark Factory are really nicely done in the cut scenes. Also, there's the scene of Cap escaping the Helicarrier early in the game that's just really kickass.

All in all, it's fun, but there's camera issues, as Iceman said.

However, if you want someone who is really powerful, try out Songbird. Her strongest attack is devastating. If she wasn't so physically weak in the damage she takes, she could be stronger than Thor.

Fun game. It's a nice start to the gaming holiday season.

Currently re-playing Uncharted. One of the few games I have ever played all the way through. Hoping to have enough time to finish before part 2 comes out ... in two weeks !!!! (From what I hear it is going to save the PS3)

Looking forward to purchasing Uncharted 2, NBA 2K10 and Batman AA next week....Love the TRU buy 2 get 1 free sales, especially since I have a GC burning a hole in my pocket that will make the deal sweeter!  Looking forward to the 720p God of War collection next month too! Haven't read good reviews on MUA2, so I'm gonna wait on that a bit.

Hells yeah. I never got to play the second one, I was on the 360 by then, so for me, paying $40 for two games is a great deal.

I got UNCHARTED 2, RATCHET AND CLANK and then GOD of WAR Collection. Followed closly by BATMAN (nope, still haven't gotten it yet) and the WILLIAMS COLLECTION (Pinball). All of these before X-mas. Whew. Hopefully I will be done with all 5 years of STARGATE: ATLANTIS by then.

Yeah... that remastered God Of War collection might make me buy my PS3 sooner than I thought.  I'm not sure if it's a reservation exclusive or it will be included with all copies of the game, but there should be a playable demo for God of War 3 included.

On chapter 22 of UNCHARTED 2 ... There has never been a game with better acting ... NEVER !!!

This is hands down the best voice acted game in the history of gaming. Now of course the great writing has a huge part to play as well, but this is just great acting.

Oh yeah, the game is awsome also.

Joe Flannigan from STARGATE: ATLANTIS has to ... must play Nathan Drake in the movie. He has to. He looks just like him, sounds very much like him and acts with the same mannerisms as Drake. It is a perfect fit. I was going to throw in my man Nathan Fillion, but I think he is getting up there in age now (nothing bad  ;D) and I don't want another Indy.
 ;)

Awsome game.

I am thinking about getting Uncharted 2 this week.  Glad to hear something good from someone who's actually played it.  

I am currently playing Batman:Arkham Asylum for PS3.  Awesome game.  Definitely glad I picked it up.  I'm only about 10% into it at this point, but I don't see myself putting this one down until its finished.  

Looking forward to the new Ratchet and Clank game coming out this Tuesday as well.  I am conflicted on what to buy.... Uncharted or R&C?

I still haven't played the first Uncharted, so :P  ;)  They are on my list, though.  I just have things I want to play more.  Like Bad Company 2, the aforementioned MW2 and L4D2, God of War collection...I'm sure I'll get to Uncharted, it's just not high on my priority list.

As far as Kung Fu Panda goes...well, it came with Lego Indy when I bought it used...and one day, I figured screw it, I'll give it a spin.  It's kinda fun.  And it is super easy.  Which means, of course...instant Gamerscore!

I'm addicted to Gamerscore.  And trophies.

I played through COD4 on both systems when I found out that it had Gamerscore on the 360. 

So that's why the Kung Fu Panda.  :-[

Assassin's Creed II is leaps and bounds better than the first. I never even beat the first one, but this one trumps it in every way possible.

Got a job at GameStop, so I can check out games for 3 days at a time for no cost. Checked out Dragon Age Origins but haven't played it yet. Hope to get some game time in with it today.

I'm almost done with God of War, I'll be playing God of War II after, and I just ordered Chains of Olympus for the PSP, so that'll rock during Christmas!  I'm going to have to preorder GoWIII, too.  I'm a Krat-head!

I'm in the same boat as you Rich.  I missed it the first time around too.  I decided to play Chains of Olympus first since it is the prequel to the entire storyline and have already beat it. Just awesome.  I'm playing the first God of War now on the PS3, but what's weird is that I prefer the graphics and controls on the PSP when controlling Kratos! The extra shoulder buttons threw me off on the PS3 version. It did take a little getting used to when playing on the PS3, but not a big deal.  Looking forward to more slashing and kicking some Olympian God butt!

Wow, I'm not looking forward to that!  I know that in Chains of Olympus, if you died like 10 times in a row in Normal mode, it asks you if you want to switch to easy mode.  I relented at that point, because it didn't effect the ending that you received when you completed the game.  No such luck in the regular God of War games eh? :D

Hollywood Video near me was going out of business so I picked up:
Grand Slam Tennis
Kung-Fu Panda
Disney Think Fast

All for like $20 and for the Wii.  I have small children, but the tennis was for me.   ;D

Dude, Kung Fu Panda is surprisingly fun.  I have it for X-Box.  Got it when I bought Lego Indy from Gamestop.  It was part of the holiday bumdle a few years ago, and the dual game package was less than Lego Indy by itself.

Wipeout HD is on sale this week for $10 on the PSN.....had to get it.

So I finally popped Assassin's Creed II into the PS3 and taking it for a spin.  Free running is really cool, except when I run out of rooftops to jump to, and I take a big damage from the fall!  I hope the little side missions don't get tedious and boring, but I like it so far, even though the facial characther graphics aren't as crisp and detailed like Uncharted 2 or Heavy Rain.

Been playing a bit of Pixeljunk Shooter and Wipeout HD too.....because I need games that I can just pickup and play for sessions less than an hour.

Like I don't have enough games to play, Kmart had a sale on FFXIII(PS3) for $30......so i picked one up.  And Hastings.com had a sale on used games, and I picked up Wii Toy Story Mania for the kid!

I've been playing an awful lot of Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction. I've been a fan of this franchise since way back when and I can't believe it's taken me this long to play the first PS3 iteration.

Great game, great humor.

Downloaded Savage Moon and have been playing it for the past week off and on.  Not bad, but I think I still like PixelJunk Monsters a little better.

Anyone have any recommendations on other good strategy games?

EDIT:  Just finished it and changed my mind.  Better than PJ Monsters.

While you all are playing Red Dead... I'll be wisked away in that magical world of Prince of Persia: Forgotten Sands.  I'm digging it... sort of missing the magical storytelling of the original trilogy... but the gameplay is comfortingly classic.

(oh... and gotta love perks for being the boss.  I got a FREE copy of Red Dead on the 360.  Will be playing that later)

While I'm sure they don't want us to keep a game forever, if the employees aren't abusing the privilage, I'll let them check the pre-owned game out 3-4 times in a row.  Of course, if it's a popular title, I won't do it, but for the other stuff, I don't have a problem with it.

Finished Assassin's Creed 2 story mode yesterday! I can't believe I achieved as much as I did in that game.....it sucked me in bad! Clocked in at over 17+ hrs.

I preordered Super Mario Galaxy 2 a while back from Amazon, so I'll be playing that this week sometime.

And with that preorder, I received a $20 credit towards a future videogame purchase, and guess what?  Red Dead Redemption was on sale yesterday on Amazon for $50!  Which makes my out of pocket for RDR $30, no tax, and free shipping!

I can't wait to play it....heard great things!

Despite the fact that I've still yet to finish the new Prince of Persia game and I've yet to start Red Dead... I went ahead and bought SPLIT SECOND.  YES!!!!!  Loads of fun... love the explosions.  If you're a fan of the Burnout series of racers, you'll probably enjoy this.  (It was on sale at Best Buy... I don't know if it's across the country, but if you're in Michigan, it was.  The game just came out 2 weeks ago at $60 now it's on sale for $40.  Combine that with a $10 gift card sitting and collecting dust and a $10 Rewards coupon and you've got a happy video gamer.)

Split Second is on the top of my list of games to get next......the tv commercial showing the airplane crashing into the speedway had me hooked.  It's on sale at Best Buy in California too, so it's a national sale.  But at the rate that I'm progressing in Red Dead(damn sandbox games) I won't be checking out Split Second until 2011! ;)

Still playing Red Dead....but......

Gamestop online had a Father's Day promotion glitch(supposed to be buy 1 game, get another game 50% off), and I ended up purchasing Split Second for $30 + free shipping(code SAVER), without adding another game!

Add this to the list of games that are constantly piling up!

Added two new games to the "family":  SUPER MARIO GALAXY 2 and PRINCE OF PERSIA: FORGOTTEN SANDS (wii).  Got a $25 gift card recently so I used that on GALAXY... and Best Buy had ANOTHER great sale for PoP.

I think I'm done for awhile now... no other major titles for me.

Took Split Second for a spin these past couple evenings, and it's addicting as hell to play.  3 hours go by and I can't put the controller down.  Trying to memorize tracks, and figuring out the timing to trigger the power plays.   It's a really great touch that this is kinda like watching a reality tv show....even down to the credits that roll after the elite races! I'm coming up on the mid season episode, but trying to place 1st in every single race-type available each episode is taking up my time. 

I like these arcade style racers......anyone hear good things about Blur besides what IGN and 1UP are saying about it online?

What I hate about Split Second is that it's causing a compulsion to complete each track with a 1st place/gold ranking.  2nd place isn't good enough even though its enough for me to move onto the next event.  MUST... GET... GOLD!

I have the same mindset!  Thankfully it doesn't take too many replays/reattempts(yet), to get lucky enough to pull of first place.  I also have the obsession with saving all my power plays until I can change the track!

The stages with the helicopter missles or the big rig oil cans are tougher to place gold in for me though.  Just because of the sheer randomness of the obstacles.  Those take a fair amount of luck to get the gold.

Both.  It's got new widescreen 3-D hi-def graphics and can be switched immediately to the old 2-d graphics, even in the middle of game play.

One additional word about TecmoBowl Throwback.  It's a fun game if you're nostalgic, but don't take it too seriously.  Apart from being outdated (which, of course, is most of it's charm), it's AI is a bit suspect.  :-\  I've progressed a good way into a season, and I'm finding that my interception and fumble rates are getting higher and my players seem slower, while players from the opposing teams seem to get faster and stronger.  About half-way into the season, their running backs seem to run right through my defenders and if I start to gain some yardage on offense, their players get this incredible burst of speed and down I go (usually with a fumble, especially if I'm close to the goal line).

Not trying to sound critical here.  I still really like the game and I think it's still worth downloading, especially if you enjoyed this game when you were younger.  But if you're looking for a solid football game with a realistic computer opponent, you might be disappointed.  :-\

Well my laptop died over the weekend and I was forced to go buy a new PC.  Bad news is there went my PS3 money.

Good news is - don't laugh Perry - I now have a PC that will run Bioshock!  I've had the game for 3 years and finally was able to install it.

Took me two hours to work out a sound problem but I'm good to go now.

Just completed Castlevania: Lords of Shadow and the game is absolutely amazing. The storyline, voice acting (from teh likes of Patrick Stewart and Robert Carlysle) are outstanding and the game has one hell of an ending. It's definitely worth a playthrough at least once. It's a Devil May Cry/God of War hack n' slash but clocks in at an impressive 20 hours for the first time through.

The scene after the credits ranks amongst one of the best after-credits sequences I've ever experienced in a game. Very powerful and very well done.

Playing through Fallout: New Vegas right now. It's great. I've missed Fallout.

I want Castlevania so bad.....been waiting for at least a $10 price drop or if I can find a used copy.  I was at Gamestop 2 weeks ago and I swear I had a 20 minute conversation with the manager there about how awesome it was.  I might just give in and buy it.....because Assassin's Creed Brotherhood is coming out soon!

between housework, hanging with the kid, watching tv, and reading comics.......playing videogames is a juggling act for me!  Unfortunately comics have been taking the backseat, which is bad because my backlog is bad enough as it is.  I usually find an hour or so to play video games in the midnite hours but I'm definitely sacrificing sleep!

Right now I'm playing through Bayonetta....and I am not liking this game AT ALL.  The story is horrible and the terrible voice acting and soundtrack are not helping!  Not sure it is worth the $20 I paid for it... :-\

Have not played LEGO BATMAN on the PS2 but did on the PS3. It was pretty fun, but I think it is the weakest of the LEGO series
LEGO - COMPLETE STAR WARS is the best
LEGO - COMPLETE INDIANA JONES was second
LEGO - BATMAN was also very fun, but just a little less so ... of course after playing all the other LEGO games, I may have just been tired of the LEGO games. I should have ... I should have just 'LEGO'

Speaking of LEGO - thread hijack coming - I have to tell you a story about one of my co-workers.  He bought a LEGO Star Destroyer last year and as he was putting it together he found out it was missing one small white piece.  He called LEGO customer service and they told him they would send him the missing piece.

It showed up THE VERY NEXT DAY via FEDEX air packed in a large envelope with bubble wrap.

Now THAT's customer service you just don't see anymore!

Well... it's the holidays so I'm sure some of us got some new games these last couple of weeks.  Care to share the details?

Me... I took full advantage of my stores B2G1 sale as well as our Employee Appreciation Day.

Finally got around to picking up Batman on the PS3, Xmen Origins: Wolverine on the 360, and Peggle and 7 Wonders II for my DS.  Oh... and I got my hands on a copy of Alan Wake.

Also... I recently got Gran Turismo and Red Dead Undead Nightmares as freebies for being the boss  ;D

Oh... and I'm finally getting around to playing Bayonetta.  Great game with fantastic style... I just wish the pacing was better.  So much of the game so far has been LONG CUT SCENE... GAMEPLAY... LONG CUT SCENE... GAMEPLAY.  Not enough gameplay... too much cut scene.  Despite that, I'm loving it.

Congrats!  I still need to finish Bioshock myself!  Got sidetracked from that game somehow....I think it was because I was playing that and Resident Evil 5 at the same time....

The first God of War is probably the most difficult.  Maybe switch it out to easy mode? 

I'm currently playing Assassin's Creed Brotherhood myself.  This game is just mind-blowing in terms of merging great gameplay, with fiction, and historical events in Italy...and there is so much to do!

Going back for feathers and Romulus lairs and last of leonardos contraptions, before I dive into multiplayer for a bit....

Then it's either enslaved, castlevania lords of shadow, or spiderman shattered dimensions that is sitting here all unopened! Or maybe I should finally finish bioshock!

Now it isn't that I lost interest in the game.  The game itself is awesome...the 5-6 hours I've played through at least. 

But me and first person shooters don't have the best of relationships.  I can do a short level or sequence that requires accurate aiming in bullet time or the usual quick 1st person zoom to focus for certain events, but completing a whole game in first person is a different story.  I just not big into FPS.....that's why I'm not a big Halo, Goldeneye, Call of Duty type of gamer.  I gotta be able to see my character.....even if its over his shoulder or from a distance.

I'll give Bioshock another go this weekend though....

Then, I too will be playing BIOSHOCK.

:D


Or maybe I should finally finish bioshock!

I refuse to play any more until Jeff gets through BIOSHOCK

Whew!  I don't feel so bad anymore!!    ;D

Any game that has Patrick Stewart narrating and voicing one of the characters get high praise from me!

Playing Castlevania:Lords of Shadow now.   Boss battles are insanely cool, and even some of the mid-level mini bosses in some stages are well designed. 

Loved fighting the Stone Titan, Ice Titan, and even the Ogre in the castle!

The 3rd stage boss had me throwing the controller in frustration though.  For so early in the game, do we really need a boss that has 3 different life meters already?

I'm getting the hang of the fighting system now... using dodge is like second nature....played up to level 5 on normal mode.

Castlevania is the best hack n' slash I've played in a long time. If ever. It's also one of the prettiest games I've seen this generation.

The design and look of the game is amazing.  The gothic scenery and level design is totally breathtaking, and I have to stop every once in awhile to admire the views. 

I just beat Camilla.....Castlevania has some damn cool quick time events that you won't soon forget!

THANK YOU!!! Finally, someone sees the light! I recommend this game to damn near everyone who comes into my store and those who play it don't make it past Chapter 2. They bring it back a couple days later and say, "Meh, I just couldn't get into it..." and I think to myself, "Dumbass." People want instant gratification and things to be immediately worth their while.


Well, enough of that... WHO HAS MARVEL VS CAPCOM 3!??!!? IT'S SO DAMN AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  ;D

Well Perry, you'll be pleased to learn that while I wait for significant price breaks on Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and Dead Space 2, I finally picked up started playing BIOSHOCK again!

I think I'm currently playing through the third act.....trying to synthesize some Vector formula, and shopping for ingredients in a Farmer's Market.

I gotta be honest though, I'm still not a fan of first-person shooters, but the atmospshere and quirky storyline are holding my attention pretty good.  I think that me playing it 5 hours straight means that I'm having a good ol time!

I think that hackng machines and taking photographs are my favorite parts of the game.  Hitting splicers with wrenches or fighting Big Daddy....I don't like so much!


Title: Re: What videogames are you currently playing?
Post by: Perry on March 06, 2011, 03:14:33 PM
I can certainly understand your disdain ... or at least distaste ... of the 1st person shooter aspect. Thanks for giving it another go.
 :)

I do think ... no, I do know that the immersive atmosphere and story totally sold me on this game. As a 'shooter', it was okay (though I loved all the new powers you can obtain. Sicking a swarm of wasps on people is cool as hell  ;D), but my enjoyment came from just falling into this world, letting the visuals and characters take me through this failed utopia of brilliance. Being shown the rot of paradise while I hunt for an escape.

Plus getting the shit scared out of me from time to time was pretty cool.
 :D

Once you get past the docks (going under them was cool), it goes really fast, as you are powered up pretty well. Just make sure you get some good hits on Big Daddy before you get revitalized as his power bar doesn't recharge.  ;)

As for your other games you just got -
Was at a friends house last week-end (picking up some of his DC books) and watched him play M vs C for about a couple of hours. He can really play that damn game. I can't play those types of games as all I see half the time is a big blur of motion  :D, but this guy is so good, he just whipped Galactus' ass all over the place.

He hated playing with Modoc, so I had him use MODOC, She-Hulk (another character he doesn't like  ;)) and Dormammu (as I am currently in a Dr. Strange kick) to try and whoop the planet eater ... Galactus just beat him, and destroyed the Earth, in about 20 seconds
 :D

Deadspace I loved, but never finished, so it will be awhile before I have my heart jump out of my chest playing number 2.  I play that game at a snails pace. I was essentially taking 1 step every 2 seconds, pausing to see if anything attacks and then I take another step. Damn game scared the shit outta me ... but that was good :D

Well Perry, you would be proud to know that I finally finished Bioshock last night!  Really got fully engrossed into the game towards the end, and I only got about 3-4 hours sleep these past few nights to prove it!  Paying for it now, especially since we lost an hour because of daylight savings time!

I don't know if Bioshock is worth playing through again though to try and not harvest the kids for some EVE!  Is the ending better?

I see that Amazon is having a big special on Bioshock 2 for $13.99 right now, which will probably be done as I contemplate......and as much as I have a distaste for FPS, I may have to actually pick it up! 

There's nothing more satisfying then using a crossbow at close range on a splicer when you are using a camouflage plasmid!  8)


Title: Re: What videogames are you currently playing?
Post by: Perry on March 16, 2011, 05:38:40 PM
Well congrats, sir.
 8)


Never used the Camo Plasmid
 :D

Cool how many different ways to play with all the different powers.

As far as the ending being different, I didn't play back through to find out (and I saved them all the time I played). I know there is a different ending for harvesting them, but I was always curious if the ending is the same if you harvest them all or if you harvest just one (or two)?
I do know if you save them, you get less Eve ... at first  ;) (they reward you with more Eve after every 3 you save)

As far as BIOSHOCK 2 ... It is ... okay. I don't like playing as a Big Daddy. I can't suggest that game, especially if you were on the fence with this one. It is fun, for me, but not as good and it doesn't suck me in like the first.

However ... part 3 (BIOSHOCK : INFINITE) looks awesome (new locale) ...

I decided against Bioshock 2, as many reviewers and as you mentioned, it takes place in Rapture again and a lot of the surprises and awe are difficult to capture twice in a row.

Bioshock Infinite looks fantastic, and it's set in a city in the sky.....might get that....next year!!!


Title: Re: What videogames are you currently playing?
Post by: Ed209 on March 17, 2011, 01:35:20 PM
Well I for one recommend Bioshock 2, especially if you can get it for $14. It certainly isn't as original as the first, but killing the Big Sisters is a challenge, and I though that the story picked up nicely from where the first one left off, even if it isn't directly related to many of the characters that we got to know in part 1. I played through it quickly, and that says something for me, because I have a bad habit of not finishing games that I start. You'll definitely get your money's worth, and then some.

Amazon had Bioshock 2 for $11 today!!!  Couldn't resist even though I do dislike FPS, the storyline and environment just sucks you in!

Playing Enslaved:Odyssey to the West right now.....awesome platformer set in the beautifully ravaged ruins of New York City!   

I just finished Enslaved, and I have to recommend it for the great platforming sequences, visuals, and awesome character/voice acting.  Gollum from Lord of the Rings does the voice work for Monkey!  It's not too hard, and the whole experience is awesome! 

I have no business adding to my list of unplayed games, but I went on another little video game shopping spree and bought Joe Danger, and the Zombie DLC for Red Dead Redemption from the Playstation Network.....but first, I'm finally getting around to playing some Dead Space 2!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  With the lights on of course!  ;D

Oh well......

Finished Dead Space 2!!!!  So awesome!

I really need to figure out how to have more free time!

Added more to my PS3 backlog of games!

-Transformers: War for Cybertron (for $3.99, Amazon matched Best Buy sale price of 19.99 and I had a $16 credit from a previous giftcard I got for free through my bank reward program!) 8)

-Fallout 3(for $9.99, greatest hits version $19.99, minus a Shopkick App free $5 coupon, and a $5 Reward Zone gift certificate I had lying around!) 8)

Besides LA Noire, I have my eye on WWF All Stars and still haven't gotten around to jump on the MVC3 bandwagon.  Then there is Uncharted 3 in the fall!!!!

Gohastings.com has a used game sale with 30% off using codeword SOCIALMANIA and scored MVC3 for under $25! Can't wait to finally play it in my own home, instead of watching my friends play it at their house!

Basic functions have been restored although you'll have do download the mandatory update and change your password.  As of right now, you'll be able to play online against other people.  The Playstation Shop is still down so there will be no downloading extra content at least for now.  Sony is hoping that everything will be up and running by the end of the month... provide no one else tries to hack them.

In the meantime, PSN members are suppose to be able to get a bunch of free stuff as a mea culpa from Sony.  They said you'll be able to download some games for free... Playstation Network+ for a month... free movie rentals... and even free ID protection... I'm sure more details will come up soon.

free movie rentals...

Sony should have given us the choice to rent what we wanted via VUDU.

Ghostbusters - Who hasn't seen this movie multiple times already?
Bad Boys - This action movie is so dated, and I can catch it on TNT or USA late night!
Final Fantasy: Spririts Within -Possibly the worst disservice to the Final Fantasy franchise.....yuck.

On a sadder note, my 360 decided it was finally time to join the rest of the old-style 360s and went all Red Ring on me.  So I am without my 360 for the time being.  I'm going to try the Towel Trick and hope that I can squeeze out a few more game sessions out of it, but it looks like I'm going to be waiting until Sept to get another 360.

GEARS OF WAR 3 bundle.  $400... 2 controllers... a 360 skinned with a Gears theme... the game... headset... 320GB hard drive... and a system that makes GEARS sound effects when you open the drive and power it up. 

Luckily I have my Wii, 3ds, and PS3 to keep me busy until Sept.

Great game.  I had the same problem in the game.  I ended up selling off weapons/ammo I rarely used, and bought it back later. Sounds like you might want to conserve your ammo and make use of your melee attack, or slow them down by shooting off a leg.  You don't have to kill each and every monster that comes your way.

In many ways, I think that running low on ammo is a good thing.  It forces you to become a better shot, and be smarter about your strategy in a situation.  Instead of running and gunning.

I just finished LA Noire not too long ago.....solid game.  Thinking about getting the DLC.

Right now I'm playing a combination of Dead Nation, Super Stardust HD, and Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom.   8)

Good luck!

Playing Fallout 3.....my initial reaction after playing it about 6 hours is that this game is overhyped.  Not really impressed with the fighting mechanics, and all the accolades it has received are lost on me.  Hopefully this game gets better....At this point, I don't see why anyone would want to clock in 100 hours playing this.

Sometimes it's worth putting up with the crappy customers and the crappy hours to be the boss.  Got back from Vegas for our yearly Managers' Conference.  Batman is all kinds of beautiful.  I might actually have to start playing Call of Duty.  Next Tuesday can't come fast enough for Gears.  Max Payne 3 has me wanting to finish the first two. And Uncharted 3 looks exciting.

Let's see... what else?  The more I see it and play it, the more I'm tempted to pick up Sonic Generations.  Borderlands 2 is too far away... I want to play it now.  Fans of Mass Effect won't be disappointed with this next one.  Which fighting game to play? Street Fighter X Tekken or Ultimate Marvel V. Capcom?  Decisions Decisions.  Am I the only one looking forward to Rayman Origins?  ZELDA!!!!!   Assassin's Creed looks to be just as good as it's predicesors. And finally, you know what game really surprised me and now I'm tempted to buy it?  Saints Row: the Third.  I can't believe it myself.

Oh... and actually, the reason I started writing was to say that I got a copy of Dead Island for free while I was at the conference.  The problem, of course, being that I'm still without a 360 to play it on.  4 days away... but how will I play it when I'll also have Gears of War 3 to play?  Not enough hours in the a day :)

I'll let you know how Dead Island is as soon as I get some play time into it.

Luckily, I started playing Mass Effect 2.  Why in the hell didn't anyone tell me that this game was freaking awesome!  I can't put it down!

I played Fallout 3 for a whole weekend, and I do not see what all the hype is about.  That game sucks major balls.


The problem is that you played it about 3 years too late. It's a great game, but things have come out since that have done Fallout 3's formula better.

Maybe so.  But I'm playing Mass Effect 2 which came out on the 360 a couple years ago, and that game is freaking awesome.....

Playing Batman Arkham City, and again, the developers and creators involved have knocked it out of the park!  This game is just jampacked with things to do, and no other game comes this close to making a player feel as if they were the title character.....I'm Batman!

Awesome to hear.  I want to just walk in and buy a copy already, but I'm still working on Arkham City.  Maybe the game will go on sale between now and when I'm ready to pull the trigger.

Assassin's Creed Revelations comes out in a few weeks too......let the backlog of games for me to play increase again!

I should be playing a more robust game like Gears of War 3 but instead I've become addicted to Child of Eden.  For fans of REZ, you should definitely check this one out.

So did anyone add anything to their collection today?  Or, in my case, more games to sit in my "as soon as I get to it" pile?

I didn't get anything so far (not that I need any more right now considering how many games I got free from work), but I am looking forward to Max Payne 3.

Tearing through my backlog of videogames!  Unfortunately, comics have been taking a backseat....

In the past month, I've cleared Uncharted 3, Arkham City, and I finished Assassin's Creed Revelations just today.

I'm currently playing Rayman Origins(excellent platformer) and about to give Dead Island a whirl(love zombies, hate FPS).

I'm looking forward to Mass Effect 3 (definite release date purchase), and also Final Fantasy XIII-2 (but I'll wait for it to become $25 or less on Amazon or Newegg).

Will do.  I'm wanting that game myself.  Haven't seen a significant price drop, since it came out just last week, but I'll let you know!   Best I've seen is Amazon offering a $20 credit on future purchases, but that would still involve buying the game at full price.....

Just finished the first episode of The Walking Dead....so good!  I hate that I have to wait until June for the next installment!  The story really draws you in, and you get to make decisions that effect the outcome of the storyline, but it's pretty light on action.  You'll see some familiar faces from the comics, and a lot of new characters too.

I recently bought some Pixel Junk games from the Playstation Store -$2 for Eden, Racing, and Monsters.....hope they are some good distractions.

It's been awhile, but I'm still playing through Mass Effect 3.  I want to get Dragon's Dogma next week, but I'm waiting to see how the reviews are....

Just picked up Dark Souls for XBox 360. I'm a HUGE fan of the King's Field games on PS1 & PS2, and people have told me that this is the spiritual successor to those games, so I'm really looking forward to this one.

I'm also in the middle of Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance on GBA, but I'm hopelessly stuck. I have both Castles unlocked, but I can't figure out where to go from here. I've searched both castles desperately and only come to locked doors or areas that are too high to reach even with the double-jump ability. I'm quite disappointed since I love the Metroidvania style games.

As for me, I just finished The Walking Dead game.  HEARTWRENCHING!!!!  So good!

I played it when it was new on the SNES years ago and really enjoyed it. That's why I downloaded it again. I haven't played it again yet, though, because I played Breath of Fire II first, then got the Dragonborn expansion for Skyrim, and now I'm playing:

(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/c/c0/Legend_of_Legaia_Coverart.png)

I'm enjoying the hell out of it. Good storyline that keeps the game moving. Nice amount of polish for a PS1 RPG (thought not quite FF level). But best of all is the unique battle systems which uses this cross-command menu that you can use to pull off combos which unlocks special moves. There's also a really cool magic system where you absorb enemy's abilities to gain magic spells. Both of these unique systems make you really want to keep grinding and seeking out more random-encounters so you can either discover new combos in the attack system or absorb new spells from enemies (while still gaining traditional experience points for level-ups), rather than random-encounters getting repetitive and boring.

THE CAVE.

A $15 download that is a real fun jaunt in the puzzle/platform variety. Each of the 7 different characters has their own special power (or attribute) and a section of the 'cave' made just for them. You go in with 3 of your choice, and replay with different ones (to unlock the other sections) if you chose.

Finished my first venture using the Hillbilly (His area is a carnival), the Time-traveler (ummm, time travel ;D) and the Knight (Castle).

Heading back to take the Scientist, the Twins (evil looking suckers) and the Hillbilly (as his section was the most fun) and then I will finish with the Adventurer, the Monk and ... well ... the Hillbilly most chances.
 ;D

Free demo on PSN (and I assume the other consoles as well). Give it a try.

Chrono Trigger on Wii Virtual Console. I played it way back when it was a new game. But it's been quite a while. I've just started and I'm really liking it, so far. I've forgotten enough about it after this much time that it's almost a new experience again.

I just finished playing The Last of Us and it is deserving of all the accolades and praise it's been getting.  The story and the gameplay was riveting from beginning to end, and it made you strategize on conserving and using supplies and ammo.  What made it fun too was that I had friends and family watching me play through the course of playing, and they were invested in the storyline too!

Now I'm about to dive into the latest DLC for The Walking Dead entitled 400 Days.

Title: Re: What videogames are you currently playing?
Post by: EmeraldWarrior420 on September 22, 2013, 02:08:32 PM
Some games I recently finished playing through:

I recently finished 2 WWE Wrestling games for the XBox 360.

WWE '13 for XBox 360

(http://videogamesetc.com/images/products/WWE%2013%20Xbox360%20Large.jpg)

FANTASTIC wrestling game. I could be a little biased since The Attitude Era is my favorite WWF/E era. But that was, BY FAR, the highlight of this game.

The storyline follows the birth of the WWF Attitude Era. Starting with the birth and formation of D-X, followed by the Austin Era, then the rise of The Rock, and then the Brothers of Destruction (Undertaker and Kane), followed by the many faces of Mick Foley, and finally the lead up to and the actual WrestleMania XV. After you beat all that, you then unlock a sort of "middle-card" storyline of the time right after WM XV. There is also a sort of "be the booker" mode called My WWE Universe. It looks neat, but also VERY detailed and in-depth; so it'll be something I'll have to come back to because I've had my wrestling game fill for the moment.

What's great, is the game gives great detail and background on this history and these matches, including video. So if you want to relive The Attitude Era, this is a fantastic way to do so. And, actually, it's better than the recent "Attitude Era" DVD WWE recently put out (which is a shame).

The controls are bit button-mashy, which I've seen complaints about online, but it's not that bad. You get used to it, real fast. I mean, it's not like it's WWE: Legends of WrestleMania; which brings me too...

WWE: Legends of WrestleMania for XBox 360

(http://www.wrestling101.com/101/imageview.php?image=983)

The game recreates matches and storylines from WrestleMania I thought XV. There are 3 ways you can play them: Relive (recreate), Rewrite (change history), Redefine (whatever you want, as long as you win the match). I played through all 3. There is also a "climb the ranks" sort of deal, like the old PS1/N64 wrestling games, called "Legend Killer", but you have to use a created wrestler, not an actual roster wrestler. I played through it, I didn't play through all 60+ opponent, but just short of that I earned all the medals/trophies.

What I loved about the game was the fan-service. The history they put in the game including video shorts that would show actual video of the build-up to matches, and of the actual match-highlights before you'd play the match. Not quite as well done as the WWE '13 highlights, but still good. The roster of classic WWF wrestlers was great, too, including alternate costumes. And lots of different match types and areans to battle in.

What I hated was the controls. A button-mashing mess. People complain about WWE '13 being too button-mashy, it's got nothing on Legends of WrestleMania. I was practically slapping the action-buttons on my XBox 360 controller half the time. It really makes your hand tired after long-play sessions.

I also recently finished

Golden Sun and GS: Lost Age on GBA

(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/8/87/Gsbox.jpg)(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/4/4f/TheLostAgebox.jpg/250px-TheLostAgebox.jpg)

VERY highly recommended for traditional JRPG fans. Very cool game that is pretty addictive and both come together to tell one epic tale. It also uses a lot of Zelda-like puzzles, which keeps the game from becoming your normal JRPG grind-fest. And it has a large world to explore with lots of secrets to discover and side-quests to be completed.

Get these while they're still affordable. They were Nintendo releases, and Nintendo releases always tend to climb in value.

Halo 3: ODST

(http://odst.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/ODST.01B-219x300.jpg)

A much more character-oriented story than the other event-driven stories in the Halo franchise. A lot of fun and very dramatic. Story is told through a mixture of cutscenes and fallen soldier's personal logs. Very nice graphics. But kind of short.

Halo 4

(http://www.couponing101.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/Halo-4-Xbox-360-video-game.png)

I went into this, not expecting a whole lot since Bungie stopped making Halo games starting with this one. But luckily, I was pleasantly surprised. It still doesn't surpass Halo: Combat Evolved or Halo 2, but it's a very solid entry in the series and starts an entirely new storyline. New weapons and enemies through-out. And very nice-looking graphics. But it's missing that classic, rocking Halo soundtrack; and the replacement, while still good, just isn't quite as good as the original masterpiece.

Halo: Combat Evolved: Anniversary Edition

(http://image.allmusic.com/00/agg/cov200/drg400/g492/g49205o95j1.jpg)

Very slick graphics added to an already amazing game. That's really all there is to say about this. If you've played Halo: Combat Evolved on the Original XBox or via XBox Live Download, then you know what to expect here; it just has a pretty, shiny new coat of paint on it. And a neat little feature is that you can switch back to the original XBox graphics at any time during gameplay, if you'd like. The real benefit is that the original game's maps are now available for online mulitplayer via consoles (the original game was not XBox Live Enabled until Halo 2; only the PC owners got to play the original maps online).

DuckTales Remastered for XBox Live Arcade

(http://86bb71d19d3bcb79effc-d9e6924a0395cb1b5b9f03b7640d26eb.r91.cf1.rackcdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/ducktales-remastered-walkthrough.jpg)

So much fun! I loved the added content, the voice-overs, and new renditions of the music. And the controls were spot-on, something I feared for before playing it. And dang is that chase sequence hard at the end. A lot harder than a simple rope climb like in the first one. A lot more attention to detail in this one, than the original, as well.

It's totally worth playing through both the original and this remake. They really do feel like 2 totally different games in the same franchise, even though many areas are very familiar.

I want to see a lot more remastered 2D classics like this!

I also just started playing this on my PC today, just because I was bored, and was VERY pleasantly surprised:

Tyrian 2000 for PC

(http://www.gameclassification.com/files/games/tyrian_2000.gif)

Which is an absolutely awesome 2D shoot-em up with upgradable ships (spend points for upgrades), lots of options to upgrade with, great graphics and nice soundtrack, and lots of levels and unlockable bonus levels! And best of all, you can save your game in-between levels.

Highly recommended for shoot-em up fans!

I'm currently playing Hitman Absolution, which is a fantastic game......the countless ways you could assassinate a target are very cool. 

I also signed up for the beta preview of Beyond Two Souls starring Willem Dafoe and Ellen Page, and hopefully I'll get to play it this week.  Can't wait to get my hands on the game when it comes out in a couple weeks.

These next couple of months are gonna be complete madness for avid next gen gamers like myself.  On the horizon....

PS3: Batman Origins, Castlvania Lords of Shadow 2, GTA V, and Beyond Two Souls

Preordered the PS4 that comes out in November and I got Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag and Watch Dogs preordered.

Marvel: Ultimate Alliance for XBox 360

(http://image.allmusic.com/00/agg/cov200/drg200/g292/g29297d4374.jpg)

I played the original XBox version when it first came out. But it's been so long, and I've had the XBox 360 version just sitting in my collection for a while after a friend gave it to me when he was moving.

So I decided to pop it in and play through it.

It gave me a huge glitch. Apparantly it's known to erase unlocked data if your XBox Live becomes disconnected and reconnects again. That's what happened to me. I lost some unlocked costumes as well as the Dr. Strange as a playable character. Which also mean wasted experience points respent on stuff I already spent it on.

Other than that annoyance, though, it was a blast to play through. And I swear there was some added content vs. the original XBox version that I didn't remember playing through. But it's also been so long, that I could've just forgotten. It has a very Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance feel to the gameplay, which I like a lot. Lots of unlockables. And it gives a lot of fan-service to the comic readers.

I tried to get into Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2. I have the PS2 version. And I just couldn't. I don't know if having the PS2 is what the problem is, or if all the releases feel as cheap and lazy as the PS2 version does. It just doesn't have the same amount of effort put into it as the first one did. Poor voice-acting. Almost non-existant music. Bad movie-scenes. And they ruined the power-ups and item upgrades. I have no desire to finish it.

For XBox 360

This game is sooooo much freaking fun! I can't stop playing it. And it's one of those games that you're thinking about it even when you're not playing it.

But it's also tough as nails. You have regenerating health, but it depletes REAL fast. And when you die, back to the beginning of that area for you, and you have to re-earn any challenges you might have completed before dying in that area. Even though it's tough, it's also so much fun that I keep coming back for more punishment. And it makes beating those challenges so satisfying when you do.

My one complaint is that the game replaces invisible walls with irradiated areas that hurt and kill you. The problem is that sometimes it kills you so fast you have no time to react. Like you'll be swinging on your bionic arm, you swing to high, and before you can swing back down out of the radiation, you're already dead sometimes. It's not so bad or so often it's game-breaking though, just a complaint. I'd rather have invisible walls, personally, they don't kill your character.

BTW, it's hilarious when the enemies talk trash to you. They sound like real people. "Why do you have to be a such a bich, Spencer?!" and "SPENCER! I see you, you treacherous f*ck!"

Best part of this game, though, is that it's this damn good, and I only paid $5 for it, complete.

New Super Mario Bros. 2 (3DS)
(http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/61dw7ucC24L._SX300_.jpg)

I just beat New Super Mario Bros. 2. But I'm far from finished with it. I still have to unlock the hidden worlds. But I did defeat Bowser.

Great Mario game. I've heard a lot people say it just feels like more of the same. I don't agree. The coin focus really adds a whole new layer to the gameplay and adds a TON of replayability (as if Mario games already didn't have enough). Great classic 2D gameplay, but it looks gorgeous with the 3DS XL screen and the 3D graphics turned on. It was a ton of fun that I just couldn't put down, and I plan on going back for more.

If you have a 3DS, you MUST own this game.

Now I'm going on to conquer "The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds" for 3DS. So far, it's one of the best Zelda games I've played in years. It's good to be a 3DS owner.

I'm almost done with Max Payne 3.  I'm at a point where I'm stuck b/c the level is on a timer.

Just played Brothers on the PS3.  It's free right now for PS+ subscribers, and it only runs maybe 4-5 hours to play.

Incredible game with unique controls, and a story filled with adventure that pulls on the heartstrings.

I usually don't like to go back and replay games for trophies, but this game makes it easy to go back into each chapter and get all those little things that add to the story.

On my 3DS, I'm still playing the new Zelda game...

On my WiiU, I'm playing Mario 3D land

And on my 360, I've gone back and started playing Spider-Man: Web of Shadows.

Repetitive? Perhaps. Simplistic? To a degree. Fun? OH HOLY SHIT HELLS YEAH!!! Incredible game.

The way the Human Torch "melts" lego ice looks just amazing.

Will say that I wish, sometimes, that they would give us less of the text on how to do certain things to make it a tad more challenging and sometimes it gets a little irritating pressing the same button to use a special power as the one that starts your power. In other words pressing the "O" has the Torch turn into Johnny Storm and vice versa having Johnny turn into the Torch (with a hearty "FLAME ON"), but it also makes him shoot a heat beam ... sometimes I "Flame off" when trying to shoot the beam (boy if that isn't like real life! HAHAHAHA)

Other than that, this game is pure fun, pure comic book gold. The "boss battles" are just incredible comic book related joy. Soooo many characters and Thor ROCKS !!!!

8 outta 10  Marvel games that were made by the guys that own DC  :D

All fantastic games, my friend! I loved them all. I just beat the main worlds on Super Mario 3D Land, and have gotten into the Special Worlds.

As much as I loved Link Between Worlds (seriously, best Zelda game since Link to the Past on SNES!); one thing I didn't like was how you have access to like all of the items early in the game. Part of the magic of a Zelda game is earning a new item as you beat a dungeon.

Yup, I hear ya on that.  And the renting of the bow and arrow was annoying too.

At the moment, I'm playing the following:

PS4 - Marvel Lego Heroes and Assassin's Creed 4

PS3 - Bioshock Infinite, Rain, Walking Dead Season 2, and Fables:A Wolf Among Us

3DS - Zelda:Four Swords, Zelda: Link Between Two Worlds, and Super Mario 3D Land.

Been playing INFAMOUS SECOND SON for work... fans of the previous games will like this one.  Game is beautiful.  If there is any "problem" I have with the game is that it plays too similar to the previous games.  It doesn't take advantage of the new hardware except for the graphics.  It plays it safe.

I tried out Zombie Revenge on Dreamcast today, which I picked up at Goodwill recently. And dang, what a freaking fun game! I played 3-4 games of it, all continues allowed. Couldn't beat it, but I'm sure with a little memorization and few more play-throughs I can do better.

Someone once told me it was a 3D fighter, and so I stayed away. Apparently that person doesn't know the different between a beat-em up and a fighter. So much Sega style squeezed into this, and pretty impressive looking for a Dreamcast game. Don't pass this one up if you have a Dreamcast, it's a MUST-HAVE Dreamcast game; and it's cheap to boot!

That inspired an entire Dreamcast playing session today. I also played these games and had a blast today:

-House of the Dead 2
-Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of the Super-Heroes
-Tony Hawk's Pro Skater
-Vigilante 8: 2nd Offense

And I have this one waiting to play which requires a little more time and input; after I take this little break:

And coincidently enough, I just saw today on CGR's website that it's Sega Dreamcast Week on Classic Game Room! How appropriate.

Oh, I love my Dreamcast.  It'll be a sad, sad day when my Dreamcast finally gives up the ghost.  If you get a chance, pick up:
 
- TYPING OF THE DEAD
- MARVEL VS CAPCOM 2
- STREET FIGHTER 3: THIRD STRIKE
- SPIDER-MAN
- RESIDENT EVIL: CODE VERONICA
- STREET FIGHTER ALPHA 3

I've got Spider-Man, great game. RE: Code Veronica I have on PS2 (used to have it on Dreamcast, but decided to upgrade). And I'm not that big into fighters. I'd take MvC 2, but there's so many flashy special moves that frankly it gets confusing for me.

PS4:
Watch_Dogs - I've played if for a few days, and the campaign is mildly interesting, and the open-world stuff is disappointing and uninteresting.  Bored with it to be frank.

Playstation Now Beta:
Papo y Yo - This game got some bad reviews, but I have to disagree.  One of the most unique and beautiful platformers I've played, with some puzzles that won't frustrate the hell out of you.

PS3:
Walking Dead Season 2
Fables: Wolf Among Us - Both of these games are stellar.  The stories are brand new, but it feels like it should be comic book canon.

Playstation Plus:
Skullgirls Encore - A mediocre fighter in the Street Fighter vain....

Yes!  I finally started Batman Arkham Origins.

But today was actually the wife playing the original Lego Batman.  She's OCD and won't stop until she has all the canisters and trophies.

Just finished Spyro: Year of the Dragon (PS1)

(http://vgcollect.com/images/front-box-art/7567.jpg)

It's more of what you got and loved in Spyro 1 & 2. Nothing especially innovative here, just a great 3D platformer, with lots of charm, and a ton of fun. Had a blast with it! I wish Insomniac would have kept making these, because the 5th gen Spyro games don't hold a candle to the PS1 games.

I still have to play through the Sparx Worlds that I unlocked after beating it, though.

I'm in the middle of Golden Sun: Dark Dawn (DS)

(http://vgcollect.com/images/front-box-art/9695.jpg)

I'm about 10 hours in, now. Great little traditional JRPG with lots of puzzle elements in it, just like the first two games. But with much better graphics and sound, being that this one is on DS rather than GBA. I'm sure the story won't be as epic as the first two games, since those came together into 1 big epic story. But I'm enjoying what I've played through so far. It seems more like a love-letter showing appreciation to the first two games, than it is doing it's own thing. But they've done it well, so far.

Just bought the Captain America table for Zen2 Pinball on my PS3. Really fun and well worth the $2.99 it cost, (Can't wait to get all the Marvel and Star Wars tables) but that damn Baron Zemo is pissing me off. I just can't get past the Death Ray and Adhesive X missions. Can't hit those ramps when I need to. I hit them 400 times when I don't need them, but as soon as that bastard comes out and opens those canisters, I can't hit the ramps to stop them. DAMN IT.
 :D

EDIT to add video of one of the missions I was talking about -

It's been awhile since anyone posted in this thread...

So what's everyone playing right now?

Me?  It's all about Mortal Kombat on my PS4.  The fatalities are so gory they're glorious.  The fight system is also really good.  If you were a fan of the last MK game, you'll really enjoy this one.

I only played a little of Bloodborne.  I will get back into once they patch the game and improve the load times.

I'm in the middle of playing South Park on my XB360.  So funny... so wrong at times.  LOVE IT!

I'm trying to finish all of the Batman games before Arkham Knight comes out.  Still working on the first one.

And finally, I just downloaded Captain Toad on my WiiU... It looks like fun so I'm going to start that soon.  (I intend on working on Zelda: Skyward Sword too).

My favorite games hands down.  I only really religiously play video games these days when the Arkham games are out.  Hmmmm.  Maybe I should go back and replay them.......

Other than that I've been working through the Marvel Lego game for many months now.  I only pick it up ever so often for a few days and then go dark for weeks.

Just not enough time in the week to get to it, read my backlist of comics, read my backlist of books, watch all my TV shows....This work stuff is getting in the way of my fun!

Just picked up Far Cry 4 from Best Buy about two weeks ago, as they had it on sale for $29. Played about 15 minutes and have never gone back. Not that it was bad, just have had no time to jump back in.

I think I am done for awhile with games until either the new Arkham Knight (maybe). Ratchet and Clank or The Vanishing of Ethan Carter (I think certainly!!!) or the one true game to rule them all and my true number one game series of all time, Uncharted 4 (positively) hits

Seems like videogames is all I'm playing lately over reading comic books.

On my PS4, I'm playing Telltale's Game of Thrones which is quite magnificent, but the chapters are short, so I play Shadows of Mordor in the meantime. It's a fun game with lots to do, but it doesn't hold my interest where I wanna play it for hours on end to finish it. Maybe it's cause I keep dying fighting these hordes of monsters!

On my PS3 I'm playin South Park Stick of Truth, which is a riot, and such an enjoyable experience being a fan of the show. I also tried Dishonored, but that game just bored me to tears from the first hour of gameplay.

I'm anxiously waiting for Arkham Knight. That's will be a day one purchase, and I'm sure I will play that non-stop like the others in the series.

I just don't really touch games anymore. Not sure why. Maybe its the hours I obsessively play. Maybe I'd rather be reading, honestly. Maybe I have no one to borrow games from! :)

It is being said by most "pop culture" sites  that you are either a gamer or a comic book'er

Hard to be both
