Title: Current Videogame
Post by: metaldomdom on April 11, 2011, 08:12:58 PM
As in Current Reads and Playlist, why not Videogames. I don't know if there's alot of gamers here but we'll soon find out.

I'm currently playing Xenogears on PS3.

I rented that game in 1998 and it was always freezing at the same point in the same battle, even after renting from 5 different copies. Same thing happened when I rented Brave Fencer Musashi. I remember somebody at a videogame store telling it was because I had a chip for playing copies.

And please, this thread isn't about which console is better than the other.

If I'm playing a game, it's almost always either some Guitar Hero game or Gears of War 2 over the weekend.

Dawn of War 2 - Retribution and Shogun 2 Total War. Both Kick ass games featuring WAR! These games have good single player and multiplayer aspects. Highly recommended, but you need a PC with gusto to get the good shiny graphics.

Minecraft.


This game assaulted me last weekend and I haven't been able to stop playing it since. This isn't typical for me, but something about it is charming as all heck and building little block fortresses has never been so much fun. :P

I just finished up Enslaved: Odyssey to the West.  I really liked it.  A good deal for $15 new.  Then I got Grid.  I almost smashed a controller over that one.  So I traded it in for Borderlands Game of the Year Edition.  I love it.  I've been playing it almost non-stop.  Reminds me a lot of Fall Out 3 and New Vegas.  It was only $20 new too.  Gamestop is having a really good sale right now.  It's about time this thread got started.   :cheers:

Borderlands is a great game. Probably one of my favorites of...2009 was it? Great coop multiplayer experience in it, and I love the randomization of weapons.

Over the last few months, I've only played Defenders of the Ancients (DOTA), which is a custom map for Warcraft 3, and any game I can find from the Half Life franchise. That's enough to keep me entertained and to not have an effect in my university's exams  :p

Batman Arkham Asylum GOTY. 

Seriously awesome game PLUS it was $7.50 US on Steam.  (Which was even less in AU dollars.)  I'm on my second playthrough, now on the hardest difficulty.  The amount of bonus content is great too and the combat and stealth is by far the highlight of the game.

It certainly isn't a kiddie game and has pretty gory scenes.  I certainly recommend this game.

I used to be a pretty avid video gamer, but I'm very touch-and-go nowadays. I have a Wii and an Xbox 360 that more or less gather dust at this point. I tend to play PC stuff since with Steam, it's so much cheaper. Plus I'm always in front of the computer anyways. I missed the DotA craze, but am pretty hooked on League of Legends, it's been my only consistently-played game over the past few months, with a game a day or so.

Big fan of the Fallout series here, I've played all of them, and just finished New Vegas not too long ago. As a Bethesda fan though, I'm really looking forward to Skyrim, since I still go back to Oblivion and even Morrowind more often than I care to admit.

The mechanics, engine, and graphics have all been improved, and the dialogue and voice acting is still excellent, but the story is not as epic and the game is much smaller in scope, also it doesn't seem like the narrative is as changeable, and you have less influence over the outcome.

He wants a Japanese Role Playing game that is similar to older titles in the Final Fantasy series (probably the most popular series in that genre). JRPGs are usually distinguished from other RPGs by being from Japan (duh), having turn based combat (each person in a battle attacks in a set order with a chosen action), and having androgynous, adolescent main characters that fight with over-sized weapons. It's a pretty shallow genre that has been stagnant for the last decade or so, which is what he's talking about when he mentions the hackneyed setting.

That's a shame about New Vegas, I've heard a lot of people complaining about freezing and bugs; completely put me off buying, although I do need more Fallout in my life! Fallout 3 was superb though, I just finished my master file on the game.  :D

I haven't finished Final Fantasy XIII either, I had a bit of a love/hate relationship with the game.

I'm certainly looking forward to The Last Guardian as well, looks very promising from what I've seen.

About New Vegas, I got like 100 hours on it but with at leats 300 freezes. It's like I'm supposed to save every 10 meters I'm walking. I put it on last week and the moment I was able to play I walked around the NCR camp for 10 seconds it froze. So it's back on the shelve.

Next Fallout game I'm going to wait until the GOTY edition comes out. Why hurry to buy a game when it's going to have the GOTY edition, it pissed me off. Those that bought the original when it came out should be able to exchange it for free.

Like Dragon Age 1. I bought it at 29,99 not knowing that one week after the Deluxe Edition would be at 59,99$. That's with the Orignal Game, Awakening + all 7 DLC!!!. But they exchange it for me because I still had my bill :D

I actually didn't find that it crashed too much (xbox version), as far as bugs... Well, it's about what you'd expect given the same shitty engine Bethesda has been using since Oblivion.  The things that bother me about it are more just bad design decisions.  The biggest one for me is that the city of New Vegas itself is just boring as hell.  Wandering around in the wasteland is way more rewarding, and Fallout 3 did that better.  That's not to say it isn't worth playing, but it has some frustrations.

One of my dissapointment from the Mojave Wasteland was that you could only walk in the middle of the map, you couldn't wander near the edge of the map because of those big ass mountain. So for me the Mojave was smaller than Fallout 3.

Post by: The Protagonist on April 13, 2011, 07:56:56 PM
All points about New Vegas are well taken. I never have had the freezing issue myself, but Bethesda is notorious for glitching. I remember a part of the VATS sequence in Fallout 3, when firing the railgun, that the game would freeze at every single time.

In general though, I found the missions a bit more rewarding and interesting than Fallout 3.

You know what I've been feeling like playing today? Doom II

I don't know, I feel that just like listening to an old-school kick ass heavy metal album, playing these games have got their charm...or maybe because sometimes I get in the mood of not following any real storyline, complex or not, beyond shoot anything that moves with big motherfucking guns.
So, excuse me, but I'll be blasting hordes of demons and zombies with my Big Fucking Gun 9000 within the next hours.

Of course, the whole pedal and console setup costs big bucks with the PC. My brother has a nice setup for playing racing games (shiftbox, pedals, wheel, etc.) that set him back a few hundred bucks.  8O

The only thing I really like from time to time for peripheral hardware is a joystick. Makes flight sims and especially space combat sims so much more enjoyable and natural. Also the Mechwarrior games.

It would have been a good idea if you could have done some Fatalities, butit was probably written in the contract -No damage will be done to the DC characters so that it will not tarnish the DC reputation blah blah blah....

I didn't even played it, just watched the clips on Youtube of the "Excessif Brutality" that replaced the Fatalities and I was WTF happened to MK.

YES!  Dragon Age II was fun, but I don't think it's up there with The Elder Scrolls series.  I think that's the next game I'm really looking forward to.  11/11/11, I can't wait!

Oh dear God yes. I will pretty much have to swear off all other games and probably some music time for a month or two, maybe take a sick day or two from work, get some chinese delivery going, etc.

Ok, I can't do that. Also I'll be married at that point and there's no way my wife would let me, but I'll still play it to death. :D

Just borrowed the Wii for some Donkey Kong Returns action. The first 3 were the favorite of my girlfriend. And I took out from the closet the GameCube because of Chris Foley mentionning Metroid Prime 2.

I got the 2 Zeldas to finished and replay Resident Evil 4, RE 1 Remake and Zero

Never finished The Wind Waker and Twilight Princess. The latter one I was hyped for it but when it was delayed for a year so that it could be release on the Wii as on the GameCube. It was supposed to be out in 2006 but I only got it in 2008 (because in '07 my sister couldn't find it for me at Christmas). So I played for like 2-3 weeks and stop afterward cause I got my PS3

Dragon Age 1 or 2

You missed Jade Empire, but in my opinion KOTOR 1 is still easily the best of the Bioware RPG's, aside from the open-ended style of Dragon Age.

KOTOR 2 was actually developed by Obsidian and is, in my opinion, better than any of those mentioned games despite it's rushed/unfinished state (I've played all but DA 2 and I dont need to play that one to know it's not as good).

If it's any consolation, it's closer than 11.11.11.  Skyrim is honestly the first game that I've actually been watching the progress of this year.  Mass Effect is great, but something about the Elder Scrolls blows all RPGs out of the water.  Bethesda will have tough competition though; BioWare have really stepped up the whole RPG genre.

Meh, Dragon Age 2 was a letdown.  If they don't stop rushing games out they are going to turn to shit.  EA has them running too fast.  DA2 was out in a year, while Skyrim has been in the works for 5 years.  You just can't produce quality games on an accelerated timetable.

The uh...Bethesda games aren't standalone stories. The Elder Scrolls are all intertwined (since they all take place in a different province), and the Fallout games also have just a bit of history. There's actually considerably more buildup behind either of those than the Mass Effect games.

You beat me to it!

The Elder Scrolls has a hell of a lot of lore behind it.  Skyrim is the culmination of events from Daggerfall all the way to Oblivion.  Their are entire websites dedicated to the lore alone.  It literally has hundreds of years of history prior to the first game which has all been added to by the tone of books and notes found throughout the game.  (Along with 3rd party novels and spin-off games.) 

That being said, both are great games; I just look forward to Skyrim a hell of a lot more partially because Oblivion was the first RPG I was introduced to.

Indeed. Being a big fan of Games Workshop's Warhammer series (both 40k and Fantasy), I was excited as hell a few years back when Warhammer Online was released. Unfortunately EA had taken over Mythic by then, and rushed the release to compete with the release of Wrath of the Lich King (or just to be cunts, possibly both). The game was released very unfinished, buggy, and with tons of performance issues. Needless to say, subs plummeted from over a million to a couple hundred thousand after the first month. Partly because people have unrealistic expectations to fresh MMO's too though of course. The game is still running today, and I still resubscribe and play sometimes when my teammates are back playing it too. A lot has improved now, but the years since the release have been spent patching and fixing things that should have been in the game since launch, but were left out or left lacking because of the rushed release. Given how the Warhammer Fantasy world has tons and tons of lore and expansion possibilities, it's such a damn shame that the game version of it failed so miserably, a real pity. Not that the approach EA/Mythic had to shaping the game was the best it could be, far from it. However, I will bear a grudge against those involved in its failure for a long time.

I completed the campaign on Hardcore and i found it too easy until the later levels. At the final act I died much more than i expected. I can't wait to try the insane difficulty. Oh and if you complain about the difficulty on gears try Horde mode even on Casual difficulty on the latter stages of it are too damned hard (which is a good thing).

What are your thoughts?  I played it.  It's fun at first, and then you get to do the exact same thing for the entire rest of the game.  It's really a one trick pony.  Did you ever get around to playing Conan?  That was actually a fun game, albeit a simple God of War clone.

So far I like Viking better than Conan.  Conan was really thin and the end boss was fucking ridiculously hard.  This seems to have a bit more depth and not just be a GoW clone.  Plus, I popped it in because I was getting tired of Oblivion and just wanted to beat the fuck out of something.  I got it used for $6, so I feel like I'm getting way more than my money's worth.

Just killing time until the new Assassin's Creed anyway.

I never beat that game.  I got to the second stage of the boss battle and could not get past it, so I read online to see how close I was to beating it and found out there were like 7 stages to that battle.  At that point I was like "fuck this" and quit.

Yeah and after that there's a quick time event that if you don't beat, you have to play the final stage again.  I lost that quick time event so many times because I was so nervous and antsy after beating his final stage. 

Just picked up Dead Space 2.  I loved the first one, so I'm excited for this one.

Aside from that it was an ok beat-em-up.  Although the later levels were pretty bullshit with the fast enemies.  You spend the last few stages spamming the fast attack because you will never get a power attack off without getting hit and interrupted.

Progressing in Gears of War 3, I'm probably getting close to the end now.  At least I'm getting killed a bit. It was way too easy at first.

The receipt apparently gives me $10 off a new game called "Rage" which comes out next week I think.  I'll have to check if that's something I might like.

It's from Id software.  It also got a bunch of E3 awards, so it's got some hype surrounding it.  I'm waiting for reviews to decide if I'll pick it up.  Been thinking of getting Bulletstorm, since it's only $20 on amazon.  Anyone played it?

Agreed.  I think it's the best thing to come out of Bioware.  A lot of RPGs take a little while to figure out how to travel and where exactly to go if there's no marker for missions.  Once you figure out where to go, it's pure enjoyment.  The only things I didn't like were mining and the fact that you can't put a marker for missions.

I applaud you for sticking with Demon's Souls.  I played for a few hours, died about 50 times, and decided that if I kept playing, I'd be forced to smash my controller in a fit of rage.

Just finished up God of War Origins Collection.  A lot of fun and definitely something any fan of God of War should pick up.  I moved onto Ico and Shadow of the Colossus Collection.  Played Ico for about 3 hours and really don't like it.  The minimalistic approach makes the game feel unfinished.  That and the very clunky controls.  I also hate babysitting Yorda.  Haven't gone back to it.

Had a 3 for 2 coupon so I picked up Infamous, Bulletstorm, and Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit.  Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit is fun, but also frustrating.  I think there's just way too much crap going on at a time.  You have to avoid spike strips, traffic, steer the course, try to use your own spike strips and stuff (which you have to move your thumb from the analog stick that steers to the d pad and hope you don't crash while you aren't steering your car), and do this all while your car controls like you're rally racing, even when on dry pavement.

Infamous is a blast.  I'm about half-way through and electrocuting bad buys is still a ton of fun.

I'm thinking about buying one of these three games: Skyrim, LOTR:War in the North or Dark Souls.

Skyrim will probably be the best. However, I have two qualms with Skyrim: 1) I am not really fond of the look of the game. 2) All that dragon-killing seems a bit cheap. Dark Souls would be a real challenge and War in the North would be more of a pure game.

I haven't.  I've heard a ton of people say that exact same thing about it.  I've been looking at it a lot since Saints Row: The Third comes out real soon.  I guess I'd always been turned off by the cover art.  It looks so full of "gangsta" hip-hop bullshit.  I'll probably try it out since it's pretty cheap now.  I always found the controls of GTA to be quite clunky, particularly during any sort of platforming.

Agis, can you explain a few things?  What don't you like about the look of Skyrim?  A snowy, viking style landscape, what's not to like?  I don't know what you mean by the dragon killing seeming cheap?  Cheap thrills? Getting killed by dragons in a cheap way?  Pure game for LOTR?  What does "pure game" mean?  Sorry for all the questions, I'm just a little confused by some of your wording.  I completely agree on Dark Souls being a challenge.

So has anyone played Arkham City?
Title: Re: Current Videogame
Post by: Agis on October 27, 2011, 03:11:32 PM
Agis, can you explain a few things? 

Skyrim: I really loved Oblivion. I must have spent thousands of hours in it. It's not a case of not liking the Elder Scrolls. It's just that everything in Skyrim is kind of ugly. The Argonians and the Khajiit look great, but all the other races just look like something I don't want to watch. I know this game is going to be great, but it's not eye candy. However, I will wait for the first 'non-Bethesda' gameplay trailers to decide.

The bit about the dragons is that they are the ultimate fantasy creature. To have them appear just like any other animal and them being easy to kill somehow devaluates their iconic presence. It's like a dragon inflation. When there's too much of something, the value goes down.

I am well aware that, hey, it's Bethesda, they've been doing awesome games for ages. I trust them, but I'm not sure that Skyrim is for me.

War in the North: I said 'pure', I could have said 'casual'. Pick the dwarf and axe your way through the orc tide. Not an experience, not a challenge, not a new world to explore. Just keep going at 'em. Like old Golden Axe. Just a game, a 'pure' game.

Never heard anyone refer to Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception as Drake's Fortune 3.   :lol  If it's as good as the previous games in the series, it will definitely be a worthwhile purchase.

It got a rating of 10 almost everywhere. Game Of The year for me, but of course that title will go to Skyrim

Skyrim has a new, supposedly, not buggy engine.  I've gotten used to saving every 10 minutes just in case a bug freezes up the game.  No sense in not playing until a patch comes out.

I've read on the net that it's not very common, not like the RROD of the Xbox360. The YLOD is a thing of overheating. I play around 3-4 hours per day always. so I don't know. It didn't gave me any signs that it would stop. It just did.

Indeed. Well, as I don't have a TV anymore I haven't kept track on the console front. Upgrading your computer every 4 years (which is pushing it these days) is a pain in the ass, and expensive. I don't mind fiddling with settings, but the upgrading part $uck$.

Yeah, for me it way better that any other city in a "sandbox" game like GTA IV. I didn't knew that the game was only in Rome. I would have prefer going to other cities too, but I think if that was the case, it wouldn't have been as good a level design because they would had to split the dev team on different locations. Love the game, love the story and espacially Rome (the other main character).

And just bought Dead Space 2 from best buy where I bought my TV. Friday night it was 899$ (I paid 949$). I went staurday morning to get 50$ credit, but to my surprise, it was 799$. I got a 170$ credit back :) and now it's 1100$. It the first time this happens to me :D hehe

There's a trick to that one.  You have to inch inside and shoot everything you can hit (the furnaces and troops) without activating the enemy tanks.  Then when they come out, back up until you are in the 'grey zone' where it warns you you're going to desynchronize but you really won't unless you back up farther, then just shoot the tanks.  They won't fire at you so long as you are in that border zone.

Skyrim obviously...

Fortunately the PC version has a lot of modder support so you can change anything you don't like or improve the visuals even more.  I got a bugged quest that told me to harass a man I'd already killed.  Fortunately I resolved it with console commands or it would've completely halted the Companion questline.

It's funny how satisfying it is to have that little trophy that has no real world significance to it.  The Titan mode trophy in GoW III was the one that I tried and decided it wasn't going to be fun to get, so I stopped trying.  Kudos to you for getting it.

metaldomdom:  Dead Space 2 is a lot of fun, but not really hard.  Are you shooting the necromorphs in the arms and legs?  Just upgrade the plasma cutter.  It's the most useful weapon in the game.  With a fully upgraded plasma cutter, the game's a piece of cake.

Downloaded Braid after finishing off Uncharted 3, my early Christmas present.  Uncharted 3 was really a gorgeous game, although the story and pacing were not as good as Uncharted 2.  Sort of felt like a Michael Bay movie in the way it threw you from one huge set piece to another without it  necessarily being crucial to the story.  Braid was really neat.  A fun puzzle platformer, although $15 on PSN does seem a bit much for around 4 hours.  A lot of the 4 hours was spent thinking about the puzzles and not in gameplay, so it could be less or more depending on your puzzle solving.

The monsters don't give enough souls, they only give me 100 souls a kills and I still get easely killed when I go in the DEPTHS by fire-wielding skeletons.

God it a hard game but very rewarding when killing a demon.

A few freezes, the odd framerate drop, but nothing out of the ordinary.  Overall I'm surprised how well it runs.  Hell, it runs smoother than Oblivion did on my PS3.

I haven't had any problems with Oblivion beside while in my house, when I opened up the chest, since i had like 1000 and more items (I collected everything) there was so much lagging, but then since I had 6 chests, I used a chest for for weapons, another one was for armors etc... the lag stopped.

And I was trying to destroys every damn Oblivions Gates but there was too much!

I wouldn't bother. I'm actually giving up on it out of boredom. I really enjoyed the others. The gameplay and the storyline was strong. But with this one, the story is lacking big time and I'm noticing the dialogue uses the F-word so damn much it sounds silly, almost like they're trying to compete with other rebellious games such as Saints Row. Compared to the others, this one is really dissapointing.

It's a good game. I don't even read the story or people talking, I skip everything lol. I like the weapons, even if I only used Greatswords, you got plenty of choice, 7 or 8 main weapons choices that's pretty awesome. And it's not like Skyrim or Dark Souls, it doens't take itself seriously. I mean the design are made to be joyous, like the colors, you never see just Black or grey.

In the end, a good game, I'm near 70 hours of play by now

I'll be shopping for my next game later today. Maybe I should get an RPG. Those are much more my style. 8)
If you don't have any of the following, I highly recommend them.

Oblivion/Skyrim
Fallout 3/New Vegas
Mass Effect series
Borderlands (this one really surprised me with just how much I liked it)
Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning
Dragon Age:Origins (not Dragon Age 2 though)

I'm thinking of picking up Rage since it's only $15.  Anyone played it?  Thoughts?

I was just realizing the number of games we've given up on in the years due to difficulty, boredom, or just a shitty game. I was remembering a day when there were no "saves" or memory cards, and the difficulty and frustration were through the roof. But there was no other choice but to play it again and again and again because there weren't any other options. "Back to the fucking beginning of the game? You've got to be kidding me!" Has technology spoiled us? Made us impatient? Atari and Nintendo wouldn't stand a chance today, would they?  :lol

I think a lot of that was to do with the types and length of games.  Games now are much longer.  There also are a very small amount of platformers, where there used to be a lot more.  I think there is also a much bigger quantity of great games.  So if you play something and don't like it, you can easily just put it down and get a new one that you'll like more.  I know I've gone a bit soft.  If I don't like something, I stop playing pretty quick and just pick up a different game.

For me, they're two separates kind of games. Borderlands is a free-for-all shoot em up, while Fallout is complete isolation. But I liked them both, but Fallout some more hehe

Did you get the DLC or the Game of the Year version?  All of them are really good, except Mad Moxxi's Underdome Riot, which sucks.

Just played through Crysis 2 which was quite awesome.  The cloaking makes you feel like the predator.  I'm waiting for Crysis to go on sale on PSN later today to download.  I've been playing SSX while waiting.  It's fun, but I don't remember the frustration and annoyance levels being so high in the original series.

It seems ok when you start, but on your second playthrough you discover that nothing you do makes a shred of difference to the story.  There's only one ending to get, and the events that lead to it are always the same.  Origins was worth playing through 8 or 10 times because of all the different endings you could get and all the different beginnings for the different races and classes.  DA2 was rushed, so you get one race, the same opening for every character, and the same ending no matter what you do.  It kind of sucked to discover that, because the combat was about 1000 times better than in the first game.
Title: Re: Current Videogame
Post by: Sirliftsalot48 on July 12, 2012, 09:47:13 AM
The recycled dungeons with different doors open or closed is a dead give away that the game was rushed.  It's been a while since I've played it, but I remember the combat being the same as the first only you have to press X every time to attack.  This means the combat translated to press X, press X, press X, press X,...  Not a bad game, but it could have been much better if BioWare had taken their time with it.

Just finished up the Resistance series.  Resistance 3 being, by far, the most fun of them.  Weapons that level up was awesome in Ratchet and Clank.  I don't know why it took them until the third game to realize it would be just as awesome in Resistance.

I then played Far Cry 2.  That has to be the most boring game ever.  It's basically a drive around Africa while getting lost because the GPS/map system is so flawed that you can't really look at it while driving, let alone while driving and being attacked by bandits.  So I decided 5 hours was all that game would get from me and I've moved on to Killzone 2.  It's good dumb fun.  Shooting space Nazis feels very satisfying as a big tough Marine.  I'll probably pick up the third one to go along with it.

Yeah, the more I play it, the more it's flaws become noticable. Honestly, I don't even know what the actual main plot is, as it's mostly a bunch of quests-albeit well written ones-that have nothing to do with each other, alot of which take place in one area, with the others usually in some recycled dungeon. Still, the dialouge system works well and the characters are all interesting, so it's worth playing for that and for the combat(well, when it works well, anyway).

The key is to block, turn around the monsters, block, attack!!! and block. It sounds boring, but it's not. I'm on level 101, finished 1 playtrough, and still want to kill some more :evil:. But after the first playthrough, the bosses are really easy. You can just go to them and attack non-stop and they will die.

I heard nothing but terrible things about Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City.

Just finished up Assassin's Creed Revelations.    My least favorite in the series, and felt like I was replaying Brotherhood with some new things that are not implemented well and make the game less fun.  Assassin's Creed III should be good, as it's had a much longer development time and is supposed to be built almost brand new from the ground up.

Finally decided to play a Call of Duty game.  Playing 4: Modern Warfare right now.  Since I don't care about multi-player, the campaign is worth the $10 I spent on it.  I still find the series highly overrated.  I guess it's rated so highly for the multi-player though.

Yes.  It's Borderlands with zombies and melee weapons, only not nearly as fun or good.  It's really an RPG in the first person perspective, and not a first person shooter.

Playing L.A. Noire.  It's not bad, and quite different then most other games, but a little boring.  Controls aren't the best and the truth, doubt, lie system is kind of flawed, but I give it credit for being it's own game and not being GTA 1947.

With WKC2 They included the entire first game with the updated combat from the 2nd game, its still a bit clunky at times but not much you can expect in terms of fluid combat from a game like FF12

FF12 had fluid combat?

Better not be as dumbed down and restrictive as DA2. 

Dragon Age: Origins is one of the best RPG's I've played along with KOTOR 1.  The second one was dumbed down to the point where it told you the outcome of your actions before you took them and then had your character say something different to what the selection said. 

DA2 basically went the path of Mass Effect by restricting party interactions to only be able to occur when you visited them in their "home" and made the bloody stupid decision to remove the ability to manage your parties equipment.  The combat was also much easier and dumbed down.  In DA1 your skill shot abilities also affected your allies.  If you cast Cone of Cold on an enemy but your ally was in the line of fire, they'd also be frozen.  DA2 basically went with a casual approach, which almost always means it's worse, and had your abilities do nothing to your allies.  The story was also massively linear and you quickly got sick of being restricted to one town and a few outdoor maps looped over and over. 

DA3 better bring back the Grey Warden (although it was pretty stupid that DA2 revealed that hey, there are actually more wardens around; diminishing the accomplishments of DA1) because I was far more attached to the party of DA1 and my Warden (who now has a demon child with Morrigan) than Hawke who was your standard rags-to-riches cut-out hero accompanied by a bunch of stereotypes.
Title: Re: Current Videogame
Post by: Eternal_Sorrow on September 18, 2012, 05:52:05 PM
DA 3 should be alot better from what I have read.  It's been in the works for like 3 years already, and its gonna be running on an engine they built with Frostbite 2 as the base, so at least its gonna look pretty.  Also its most likey gonna be a next gen console release title.

Back on topic...

Guild Wars 2 (there is just to much to do in this game)
Sleeping Dogs (can you say sleeper hit...)

Darksiders 2 is about 20-30 hours, depending on how dedicated you are to the sidequests. Then there's New Game+ to play. As for Borderlands 2, I don't have it, but a friend of mine claims it to be godly.

I don't know why Ubisoft crank the security up in Ac Revelation, I'm not even wanted and everytime I walk in front of a guard, there's always 10 guards at least chasing me. And the freaking snipers are a pain in the ass. Also, the strategic portions of the games sucks (when you need to defend your den) I hate strategic games! Why do you have to redefend it 5 minutes later is stupid too.

Yeah, you only have to do that once, after that it depends on your notoriety.  I think maybe you don't realize that your templar awareness goes up when you buy businesses, and then you have to bribe heralds to get it down again.  If you don't watch that you'll become notorious and then, yes, guards will chase you and you'll have to keep defending your dens.  Keep awareness down and the game is actually easy.

It took me awhile to figure that out the first time I played.  Buying a business ups your awareness by like 25%, so you can go notorious really fast and not realize it.

Which is funny, because a lot of people dismissed the original, and this is really just more of the same with new shiny stuff on it.  I mean, it's not very different overall.  It's a fun game, but it's not epic or anything.

The first Borderland came out a couple of months before or after Fallout 3 I don't remember which so I guess that's why the first one passed by without much recognition. But once you play both game, it's really not the same style. In terms  of exploring and overall product Fallout 3 is better, but for Borderland, the gameplay, looting and fast-paced action make it very good too

Decided to check out Brotherhood again a month ago after the hype for AC:3 started to build and flew through it, so jumped onto Revelations. Digging it a lot.

Before that, I plugged through Saints Row 3 too - needed a bit of a GTA styled game to get into, and it was pretty good all in all. Bought FIFA 13 on release, and have hardly touched it due to the amount of AC-ing - haha

Farcry 3

So far its pretty amazing!
The reviews sound like it's really good.  How is it compared to Farcry 2?  That game was so tedious and annoying with having to drive all over the place and the constant re-spawning enemies at checkpoints.  Does 3 fix those problems?

Seems to so far, there isnt really checkpoints but enemy bases all over the island you take them back for your side and then your friends spawn there, so no constant respawning enemies, and you can fast travel to every base you take.  So if you need to get somewhere fast you can, and there is less annoyance with the enemies.  I personally didnt like Farcry 2 at all, it was novel but got boring fast.  With Farcry 3 the story is amazing and makes you want to explore the world and push forward through the jungle!

Playing through Assassins Creed 3, I'm enjoying it  but alot of the time it feels more like an interactive move rather than a game. It still has the same problem I have with combat in games like this and Arkham City, the shallowness of just spam countering and one real attack button. It feels like I'm not fully in control of what my character is doing in combat

Just grabbed Resistance 3 fantastic game but that install bug is ridiculous. Apparently you have to download the disk download before the patch or the game doesn't work at all. So I had to delete everything, disconnect from the internet and do it all over again. They really shouldn't have these kinds of problems more then a year after release

The install data takes about 45 minutes to delete for some reason.  I thought something was wrong until I googled it.

It wasn't a problem with the disc, just the install data.  It was related to a 600mb patch that had to be downloaded.  It's the only game I've ever had that happen with.

Still playing Borderlands 2.  I got Dishonored and Max Payne 3 for my birthday.  Those are next if I ever get done with Borderlands 2.  It's at least as addicting as the first.  Are there pearlescent weapons in this one, or is orange the rarest?

I'm not sure if Borderlands 2 has any either, but considerng how awesome the orange weapons are, I kind of hope so.

When you get to Sanctuary, you gain access to a storage vault in the Crimson Raiders HQ that can hold excess equipment you don't want to sell. There's also Claptrap's Secret Stash, found after doing a short-but-funny mission, which can twink items between your different characters. Beware, however, that the space in both of these is limited, but you can purchase more space for the storage vault at the Black Market.

I'm a huge fan of the original even though I hadn't played much of it for not having my own PC at the time. It doesn't require a super pc if your thinking of giving it a go.

Dishonored after just finishing up Max Payne 3.  I didn't enjoy the first couple chapters, as my character wasn't strong enough to tackle characters head on.  It seems to reward stealth, but it's so much more fun to run in swinging your sword and blasting people with your whirlwind power.

Assassin's Creed III
Maybe it's because this is the 5th game in the series, but I'm not really enjoying this.  Took a really long time to even become an assassin and so many random things that aren't really fun or well explained.  Is there any reason to want to collect all the feathers, viewpoints, and almanac pages?  Those underground tunnels for fast travel are really annoying too.  The production values are clearly high, but that alone doesn't make a game fun.

They started to go wrong when they added the Tower Defense garbage to AC:Revelations, as cool as some parts of AC 3 are and as stunningly beautiful as it can be at times it just doesnt make up for some really bad design and game play choices.  The game is pretty much just go talk to a guy and then chase someone down over and over and over...  Its sad cause I wanted to love the game soooo much, and AC 2 is still one of my favorite games.

I'm 45 hours in Ni no Kuni, it's a great game. But, for me, it could have been way better.

- There's really not enough animation. I was exited because it was studio Ghibli doing the animation and the characters graphics. I've only   seen like 2-3 animations in 45 hours.

- Not enough voice acting. It's 2013, not 1999.

- The battle system: I didn't wanted to look at any gameplay or trailers before the release of the game, but if somebody had told me it was kinda like pokemon, I don't think I would have bought it.

- When you buy a new weapons or armor, it doesn't show on the battle field. Again 2013, not 1999

- Almost all familiars have the same abilities.

- Even though there are 300 familiars, in 45 hours, I'm still using the 3 sames.

I can go on and on. It's still a good game of JRPG, but it could have been way better.

Anybody knows about Atelier Ayesha the alchemist of dusk?? I've never played an Atelier game before and after seeing some gameplay, it's looks pretty good.

I ordered Call of Duty: Black Ops II from FutureShop yesterday (a SUNDAY) and got it in the mail today.  It was $20 off the regular price.  Probably won't be playing it before April though.  In fact I'm usually a winter gamer and I haven't played since January.  My consoles must be feeling lonely.

I didn't like the first Black Ops all that much, which is why I waited for this one to go on sale before buying it.  I figured if it wasn't great, at least I wouldn't have paid full price for it. :naughty:

That's not the best analogy.  Call of Duty games are more like Michael Bay films.  They have lots of action and big set pieces with dumb stories and nothing really innovative.  They are well made and have high production values, but bring nothing new to the table and are all interchangeable with the last iteration.  The 5 hour campaign is enjoyable and worth around $20 or less.  I don't touch the multiplayer in any game.

Finishing up 3D Dot Game Heroes.  Total Zelda clone and a lot of fun.  Reminds me of being a kid and playing A Link to the Past.  I just picked up Far Cry 3 since it dropped to $30.  I've heard nothing but good things about this one and sounds like they fixed all the annoying things from the 2nd.

Fifteen hours into Assassin's Creed 3.

I love it and hate it. Really like the scenery, actions, and exploring this time around (instead of just using viewpoints)
Even with all that newer stuff, it doesn't feel "new". They should really stop throwing them at us every year, cause now they're like COD. And the controls are really awful, I couldn't even shoot the gun in certain missions. And for combat, it's very easy, always hit the square button.

I had Demon's Souls and had to get rid of it before I was forced to smash a controller in a fit of rage.  I can only assume Dark Souls is the same way.

Sleeping Dogs
It's basically GTA Hong Kong or True Crime: Hong Kong, which is what the game started out as.  Not being a huge fan of GTA, it's just ok.  I don't really like having to drive around a city all the time.  I hate driving in cities in real life and it's not much more fun in video games.

Dark Souls is 1000X more forgiving then Demon Souls was... there is alot more checkpoints so you dont have to trek through everything over and over when you die in Dark Souls, alos once you learn to parry and block properly it becomes pretty easy overall aside from some of the boss fights!

Sleeping Dogs as well is amazing and well worth sticking it out just to see the awesome story!!

Can hotkey up to 6 spells and theres a massive amount to choose from. Can't wait to sink more time into the online

I thought the battle system was nigh on perfect, reminiscent of the Tales games with an ever so slight hint of Chrono Trigger. Nice balance of modern and nostalgic systems as far as I'm concerned.

I do agree on the lack of cinematic sequences, especially mid-late game. They have one of the best animation teams in Japan and only produced a handful of fully fledged scenes which kind of sucks. Still, a minor gripe considering how much I have, and still am enjoying the game.  :lol

I am hardcore gamer who thinks the 360 is better than the ps3. For the next generation definitely I'm switching sides because ps4 is simply a much better product. Even though the xbox restrictions dont affect me nearly as much as other people but they are annoying as hell. I despise the attitude that Microsoft is currently taking towards its consumers. The only two aspects that i like about the new xbox are the controls (which are superior in my opinion) and Titanfall!!! Playing another Halo game doesn't excite me as it once did.

It still might actually sell due to the little kids that really want "the new Xbox" to play Call of Duty and have no idea what DRM or GDDR5 ram is.  I frankly hope it does sell enough to keep Sony on its toes.  A little competition will keep Sony's prices low and fair.  I already reserved and paid for my PS4 today. 

Is anyone else really excited for Knack?  It looks like an old school platformer like Ratchet and Clank and Jak and Daxter.  Those are so few and far between these days.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow
Good, but very much in line with Devil May Cry and God of War.

Dead Rising 3 looks incredibly generic now.  It doesn't look like it has any of the fun from the first two games.  It's all brown and grey now.

Xbox One is centered around things I don't care at all about; TV, sports, and Call of Duty.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KbWgUO-Rqcw (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KbWgUO-Rqcw)

Exactly Dark Souls is kinda broken in a way, if you buff dex and magic first time around, when you hit new game + you can just rape the game in like 2 hours by being so fast and having such powerful ranged magic that nothing ever even hits you... its a game that punishes the melee class 10 fold and i hope they can fix it up a bit for part 2.

That's fucking nuts. I can't help feeling I need to start my file again, I made a lot of bad decisions from the get-go as I didn't do much research on the game. (Erratic leveling, killing important NPC's, etc)
If you do start over, I'd reccomend the Pyromancer; he's the lowest level, therefore he's easier to build stat wise. Also, all his pyromancy spells require no stat to use besides the slots to hold them(Attunment to be exact. Level it until you get five slots on you. It becomes too expensive to get more after that).

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon

Being brought up with 80's/ early 90's action films this game appeals to me on so many levels. From the countless references, waves of neon, kick ass soundtrack, Michael Biehn, and the gameplay itself I'd say this is probably the best game I've bought on PSN.

I'm 80 hours into Skyrim with the Legendary Edition, but my god its bugged.... I've installed all three DLC and on Dawnguard when you need to bring Serana back home, she doesn't do nothing. She's supposed to tell you "Do not talk to anyone" blah blah blah, but she just doesn't do nothing.

And now, the Hearthfire and Dragonborn missions are just gone, poufff not there anymore. I have deleted them and re-installed them, but nothing shows....

I can't count on my hands and feet the number of time the game froze on me. It's really annoying.

It's still a massive and good game. But come on, we're at the end of the generation.

What you get for playing on a bug-factory PC.  I'm playing on a console and had very few problems.  It does tend to freeze more often since the DLC add-on, but not too bad.

What console are you playing on?  I'm thinking of picking up the Legendary Edition for PS3, but when I stopped playing Skyrim before, it would turn into a slideshow after only a couple minutes of playing.  Is that all fixed with patches now?

Just got Doom 3 BFG edition.  Played through Doom 1 and Doom 2 and now I'm moving on to Doom 3.  This is my first time playing it.  My PC couldn't handle it back when it was released.

As for Might and Magic I gave up when after playing for half a year I got to level 25, thought how buffed up I was and my friend told me that the maximum level is somewhere around 350, oh geez those old rpgs

Oh and just finnished Diablo 1 for about ninth time (with sorcerer that is, Ive played it through many more times than that), incredible game, the sequels get nowhere near this one. Its like King Diamond among games - dark, evil, satanic and all around insane

The whole game is crap, none of the parts are done well and the figment of an open world is just disappointing.  Its basically just drive to linear run and gun mission then drive to town then drive to another linear run and gun mission... and the way they did the GFX, especially on PC, was just appalling.  Overall it was just generic and boring, and the cars were a little to floaty in my opinion.

Aye, I'm just about up to that point now. Is that the crap where you're trailing through all the black, couldn't remember if were GoW II or III. Regardless, you can't deny the first two thirds of the game, particularly the boss fight with Cronos.

Yes.  There isn't an ending.  It just kind of repeats the same enemies a bunch of times and then stops, which was surprise after the few cool boss fights earlier.  Even with the lack of an ending, I really enjoyed Rage.  It was a lot of fun.  It's not an open world RPG.  If you thought that then you are going to be disappointed.  The game is pretty linear, but it does have a side mission here and there.  The people that are hating on the whole game tend to be PC players that are pissed that the PC version is actually worse than the console version.

New IP.  It could still be similar to GoW in mechanics.  Look at how Naughty Dog made The Last of Us.  You can see a little Uncharted in it, but it's a totally different game.  I'd like to see Santa Monica do the same.  I'm excited for their next project.  They have Cory Barlog back, who made GoW 2. 

Just finished Crysis 3.  I always really liked the Crysis series.  I feel like predator when using the cloak.  Starting up Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance.

They could cross it over with the Darksiders games.  Kratos is awakened in the modern day and sent off on a rampage through the xtian heaven and he ends by killing yaweh in a 40-minute quicktime epic where he has to rip off every part of his body one after the other.

Lets just say it fixes all the problems 3 had, and makes the sailing an integral part instead of just a novelty on the side.  Everything is very well polished and the characters and story is much more likable then 3.  Ive played all the creeds as well and this is the best one since 2!

They got rid of that and really streamlined the experience on the second one, but that's really for the better, I think. Mining for resources for upgrades is about as tedious as navigating the bloated inventory system on the first one, however, but that's the one true rough spot on it.

Playing Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen (GOTY edition free on PS+) and you're right. I find it slow, always the same enemies since you have to do alot of backtracking, there's never a good loot from chest or enemies even powerful ones, the customization of weapons and armors is boring.

The gameplay is pretty good, but Dante is one of the most annoying main characters ever.  The story is so far removed from the original Devil May Cry that it really should have been a different game entirely.

I understand what you mean but for me, if they had a made a reboot in the same vein has the first trilogy (I never played the fourth game), it would have been boring. I really like the new direction

Forgettable and bland story, but the game play is so much fun that the story doesn't run it. It also helps that it has unintentionally funny moments in some cut scenes.

Diablo III- This game is extremely addicting.
Team Fortress 2- Probably one of my favorite online games.
Dead Island- Another zombie game, but it is a satisfying game if you ignore the terrible story.

I'm only 6-7 hours and I really find Infamous 2 boring as hell

The control are not fluids, the assassin's creed gameplay is not done properly, Cole is a douche and god I hate is voice!

When the first came out, I wasn't impressed. So when the second one got out I was curious because it got 10/10 or 9,5/10. I should have stayed away even if it was free on PS+

You get to make the choices for him, so if he's a douche, it's because you made him one.

Picked up Lego Marvel Super Heroes for PS4.  There are a ton of characters in this game.

What really grinds my gears about Dark Souls 2

- The Loss of life when your Hollow for fuck's sake
- If you buy a certain amount of items at a merchant, it never comes back (like arrows!) I bought 30 from the blacksmith and that's it, no more for the entire game
- NO more respawning of ennemies when you kill them around 15 times. So there's really no way to farm for souls. So if you're hollow and you don't have some Human Effigy (Dark Souls Humanity) you need 1500 souls to buy it, but wait! The merchant only have 5....

From Software said it's to remove the cheap way to beat the game

I've finished all Bioshock , god of war 3, DMC, Batman, Dead Space and alot more on hard. This one i think is the hardest. I took me more than 30 tries for the first boss.... and even small battles I die.

yeah I understand.  I don't play a game for trophies, like the platinum, I don't even have one, played around 70 games, have almost 2000 trophies.

I don't think I replayed the same game twice just for a trophy. The only game I replayed this generation was Fallout 3. I had 3 savefiles of around 200 hours each. There's just too much games to replay the same one on and on

It's not as good as 2, but I am still enjoying myself.  The environments are harder to navigate, and the class builds are trickier - you really have to dig around in the guts to figure out how to build a good character.  The 0-G jumping is fun, but the need for oxygen is kind of a pain.  If you liked the other games it is worth it.

A friend of mine's been promoting Far Cry 4 pretty hard, never played Blood Dragon either but sounds like I definitely need to considering how much I loved Far Cry 3 itself. Lately I've been revolving between the new COD, Shadow Of Mordor and Diablo 3 Ultimate... It's not a bad place to be but I'll shit you not, every now and then I need a break from the shear darkness presented in Mordor.

And WTF is up with those Walking Dead games anyway, theres's like ten of them??? Do they mimic the TV series or something like that?

There's two seasons of the Telltale games and each season has 5 parts to it.  They aren't related to the TV show.  There is also The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct, which follows the TV show and is complete crap.

Infamous: Second Son

The gameplay doesn't stray far from the rest of the series.  It looks nice and is exactly what you'd expect an Infamous game on the PS4 to be.

I think Dark Souls is easier due to having more nurfing opportunities since it contains a lot more RPG elements than Ninja Gaiden. Plus its combat is a lot slower and based on strategy where as NG is a lot more fast paced and requires more genuine skill imo. Plus the enemy formations combined with bosses in the mission mode and harder difficulty levels of the story are beyond brutal.

Finished The Walking Dead Season 2 Episode 1; Finished Tales From The Borderlands Epidose 1 (Amazing!!!)

Now playing The Evil Within. The camera is too close for my taste and it's mostly a stealth game. I hate stealth game... you wait for the enemy to do "is round" so you know his path to do a sneak kill. It's suposed to open after chapter 3, I'm only at chapter 2. But everything else is superb. Nice graphic, sound, atmosphere. Thumbs up for that

I wouldn't say it's a stealth game, seeing as there are absolutely no upgrades for it.  Also, it starts falling apart in the end with an unfocused plot and gameplay that's basically a shitty Resident Evil 4 clone, but without the self awareness.

I got an I7 3770 and a GTX 970 with 8gigs of ram, I play it with everything on ultra (except shadows and draw distance only on high) and hairworks on and i get over 30FPS constant it never drops below that.  And Im the type of gamer who cant see the difference between 30 and 60 and as long as i get over 30 constant im happy!

Have three games going:

Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin. First Souls-series experience. Fuck me, this is fucking hard!
Dragon Age: Inquisition. Have been playing this for nigh on 90 hours. Thought I was getting decent at it, have slain a lot of dragons etc. Still having som trouble with high-level dragons though. Cool game, but getting tired of it now.
Shadow of Mordor. Reminds me a lot of Assassins Creed, only much cooler, and way way harder.

Yeah I'm playing Mad Max now. Being a huge fan of the movies I'm satisfied with the content. The Shadow of Mordor/Batman gameplay is good but it gets kinda repetitive farming for items and doing the same quests over and over. I'm enjoying it though

You're not the only one, I sucked big time at that game, didn't even finished the second mission, was always getting killed.

The hair is truly awful.  I always thought the hair looked like it belonged on a Lego figure.  The rest that you mentioned kind of disappears during the action leaving the game looking pretty incredible on high end systems.  The environments and lighting especially looks really good if you've got the hardware.

I definitely believe that.  The detail probably had to be turned down due to the much larger areas of Inquisition when compared to Origins.

Halo: Spartan Strike

It's a fun simple twin stick shooter set in the Halo universe.  I'm taking a small break from The Witcher 3 after completing my second play-through.  I know I'll be going back to it since I ordered the expansion pass and my real world Gwent deck today.  I'm way more excited about that Gwent deck than I should be.

Life Is Strange (Very good)
Soma              (Really creepy atmosphere, Very Good)
Gems Of War   (Like Puzzle Quest, but too slow loading, and its Free-To-Play so its takes way too long to levelup)
Everybody's Gone To The Rapture (Very good, just wandering the beautiful village kept me going back for more)
Styx: Master Of Shadows (I don't really like stealth game so I found it boring)
Broken Age (Another great game by Double Fine, and very very funny, I didn't stop laughing)
Trine 2        (not so bad, but not that good either. Stopped playing)
Axiom Verge (A MetroidVania nostalic game. Very good, loved the sci-fi music, the world, and the weapons)
Broforce       (Didn't get into it, my nephews were blasting through the levels, but me I always kept dying. So I     
                   stopped)
King's Quest (Not so bad, some parts are funny, but the old man voice is disastrous)
Fallout 4 (Very good, don't know what people are complaining about)

Some from LA Confidential, some from Chinatown.  The recreation of 1947 LA is fantastic if you are a history nerd.  The mystery keeps you guessing and the characters are really quite amazingly well developed for a video game.  It's a good balance between story and gameplay, and there has certainly never been another game like it

Yeah, it's a lot more industrial with some heavy parts which are along the lines of Fear Factory/Meshuggah/Strapping Young Lad. Nothing amazingly cool, but I'd be lying if I didn't get a kick out of smashing demons to some dirty low end guitar chugging  :lol

Funny, I found the gameplay as unremarkable as the story.  It feels like it's trying to be a movie in a medium that doesn't need to do that.

You must not have played Heavy Rain or really any Quantic Dream game... those are 100% trying to be movies and a medium that doesnt support them.  I loved Heavy Rain though.

OT:  Nothing but Overwatch until FFXV comes out!!

Dark Souls 3, finished my first playthrough, now at my new game +. Doing it with a checklist so I can get 100%. It's the first DS game that I follow a checklist afterwards and I really missed alot of places, and things to do!

Its impossible to 100% though, as there are multiple side quests that close off other things.  You can kinda of only do one or 2 side story lines per play through.  Also fucking killing the dragon king guy lol.

Yeah, I've now sunk about 120 hours into the game and although I didn't focus on 100% completion, I've carried five characters through the game and focused on a couple quests but still only reached around 70%. I find more enjoyment in doing challenge runs than trying to complete the souls games. I finished it at soul level 1 recently. That one was a bitch!  I was doing bare fists but it got to be unbearable after about four bosses.
I'm out of country until later this week and then I'll play the dlc that I downloaded prior to leaving country. Heard it is tragically short but I'm excited for new content regardless.

Oh yeah, Dancer is probably my least favorite boss to fight. Sometimes I feel I get lucky and his attacks are the ones I can predict, but far too often once he gets into his second stage, it just sucks. Him and Cinder are my hardest ones probably. But I have to say, I think they did a pretty good job with the bosses in this game. They are all memorable. I even liked the Ancient Wyvern battle, even if it is just a lame puzzle/situational battle. The plunge attack on him feels awesome. Haha

Finished my second playthroughs of Dark Souls 3, did everything exept Covenant. I'm a souls fans since day one, but whenever I play PVP duals, invade or get invaded, I sucked deeply. I always get killed when the the other player has 1/20 of his health left. It's like if my build is nothing compared to others. Like in DS3, I have 53 strength, 48 Dex, 30 life, 38 vigor and 40 Stamina. I carry a greatswords that do alot of damage, but get wiped out by a guy having an Estoc cause that fucker stunlocks me!! or the other player spam rolls everytime. God! And I hate it when you invade and they send you against a mage that 1-2 shots me with a soul arrow!

lol my rant is over. Anyway, the single experience of a Souls game is the best and I hope it's not the last one, same thing for Bloodborne.

Yes, my favorite game series for sure. All we know now is that the original creator is finished with the series but that another developer is more than welcome to create a new Dark Souls. Seems like Bloodborne sequel is also not a priority.

As for PVP, it is just such a different style of fighting. You can definitely do well with quick weapons such as the estoc.  My best was with the exile great sword. It's fast enough to occasionally catch them off guard with a nice reach. But it takes a lot of practice to do pvp successful as the majority of people doing pvp spend most of their time doing that. I had a 15 win streak once and then I lost. Also going for parry is a good idea.

15 win in a streak, you're probably a god! I'm 100 loss in a row. It's not that I'm bad, I take my time and I'm not a R1 spammer, it's really I have zero chance. I have 52 strength so that mean I take out alot of Hp but then at my last hit to kill them, they magically do a roll or stunblock me out of nowhere  8O than bam You Died in red lol

Just curious...did you side with the Empire or the Stormcloaks?  I also heard you can side with neither but it sounds less interesting. My dilemma is that the two sides only exist because of a mere difference that divides the people. The empire has some shitty people, and so do the stormcloaks.  All this makes it hard for me to choose my side. While I'm only 66 hours into the game, I know I have to choose soon. In some ways I love when games give me big choices, but it's never been this hard to pick a side for me in a game before!  Haha

Here's the cliffnotes version of the factions: Stormcloaks are nationalists who feel their way of life has been encroached on by the Thalmer (which it has) and wish to be independent of the empire, but their leader is a racist, self-important prick whose only concern is for his people, the Nords, and all the other races can go to hell.

The Empire trampled everyone's religious freedom, but mostly because there were no better options.  They see the Stormcloaks as a threat to the security of the empire(which they are), but while they resent the Thalmer, they bend over heel and foot for them, but mostly because they are a significantly bigger military power than they are.

Short version of all that is that both sides suck and there's little that can be done about it except to not do the quests.

Well, all of this certainly validated my complicated feelings here. Perhaps it is my only real issue with the game. At least with a title like Fallout 3 you can choose to be good or evil.  This current choice I face is like choosing the less of two evils, much like the recent election we just had. Haha

I have done it both ways.  Emotionally I side with the Stormcloaks, because the empire really are dicks - I mean, they were about to behead you in the game opening for no good reason.  I have played nords and run through the civil war questline and driven the empire out.

But I have also taken the long view, that the Thalmor want to divide the empire so it will be easier to dominate, and so they encouraged the civil war, because without Skyrim the empire will have little chance to eventually overcome the Thalmor yoke.  So I supported the empire and crushed the rebellion, knowing this will mean the empire is in a better position to win free of the Aldmeri Dominion in the future.

There is also a third option where you can broker a peace agreement and end the war without further bloodshed.  I haven't done it myself and I'd need to look up how to do it.

That third option is part of the main quest if you don't end the civil war quest beforehand.  As far as I know, you're only brokering a temporary ceasefire between the two factions while you deal with Alduin, so you're not actually ending the war.

Loved Uncharted 4. It became my favorite game of the series, as I love pirate history. Very polished, indeed.

I'm about 35 hours in playing Final Fantasy XV (on the PS4Pro). So far, it's been a pleasure experience, but the history is not that good, and it often doesn't feel like a FF game at all. Other than that, I'm having a lot of fun.

Currently in that awkward stage where I just finished Skyrim, and nothing feels right anymore. 

-I've just tried out Journey, and got bored, but got an hour into it, so I should probably finish it but I don't really feel like finishing it...

-I have a bunch of other indie games to try, but not feeling any of them.  Considering starting "Everybody's Gone to the Rapture" but again, it's not Skyrim, so I don't know if I can dig it right now...

-I have Titanfall 2, but again, Skyrim killed it...

-There is the Witcher 3, which I bought a long time ago and never tried...but it's too big and I'll probably just end up missing Skyrim...

-I've been playing a few rounds of Dead or Alive 5, and it's somewhat holding me over because it is fast and doesn't involve many hours.  But it doesn't hold my attention for long.

It's not that I am just lame when it comes to choosing what game to play.  But I just started and finished Skyrim for the first time, and it made nearly everything I've played prior to it seem uninteresting.  Hahaha! 

I am sure I'll settle on a game sooner or later.  I'm just in that awful post-Skyrim slump...

Im the exact opposite, i thought Skyrim was overly long and boring as hell... the combat sucked all hell and ruined the immersion and after about 8 hours i just hacked it all and killed everything lol

Actually, I'm a Dark Souls fiend.  Haha!  I've beaten every entry in the series, including Demon Souls, at least five times.  It's my favorite game series.  And because I love the strategic combat, this game has also ruined many other games for me as well.  I've probably beaten the third Dark Souls 9 times now.

So yeah, excellent suggestion. I just happen to have already done it. Haha :)

I definitely know what you mean about combat and all. I wasn't immediately hooked, but I had only played Dark Souls games for a good year or two, so I was starved for something with a story and Skyrim gave me tons of stories. I agree that the story wasn't that engaging and the combat wasn't that special, but it was fun being a mate. Haha. I might pop in Witcher.

Resident Evil HD

Finished my game with Jill on easy (thought I was on medium) and finished with Chris on Hard and by god that was hard. You really have to memorizes where the zombies will be and the way they turn or else you're dead. Kept passing by them to conserve ammo.

Resident Evil Revelations 2

It's good, love the story, settings are scary but again with another village gets infected like RE 4 and 5 (this time Russians) Haven't finished it yet, I'm at the end of the Claire run on Episode 3. Every episode is cut in half. You play with Claire for about 1 hour then switch to Barry for another hour or so to finished the episode.

Limbo

Is it bad as the reviews pegged it to be? I skipped it because of them.

Speaking of gorgeous games i finally gave Uncharted 4 a whirl and god damn, best graphics ever pretty much.

Also playing FF15, and while the combat is a tad shallow its a pretty damn good game i feel some of the hate it gets is unwarranted.

It's not bad, it's just got uninspired gameplay.  Cover-based shooting, lots of QT events.  The gunplay is pretty solid, and it's got a great look and real polish to the game world.  Good voice-acting, good facial animations.  It's just one of those games that's trying to be a movie a little too much, using gameplay conventions from 10 years ago.  I'm finding the story enjoyable, so I'm still playing.

Combat mechanisms very aggressive compared with the other Souls games. Takes a while to get used to.

Definitely looking into Nioh when I'm close to completing my to-play list. Have way too many games left to even consider it now. Looking forward to Mass Effect: Andromeda and Horizon: Zero Dawn now.

Both Uncharted 4 and Halo 5 are pretty short games, no? I need a RPG break before diving into Horizon: Zero Dawn.

Also, Bloodborne was fantastic. Not as good (or as hard) as Dark Souls 3, but still quite the experience. Loved the Lovercraftian theme. I am usually not one for horror games, but this was great.

Finally, the new Zelda looks absolutely stunning. Seriously considering a Nintendo Switch.

I found Bloodborne more challenging and enjoyable than Dark Souls III personally, but neither is as challenging to me as most people that I know think.

Never played Halo 5, but I just finished Uncharted 4 and it was about 12 to 15 hours depending how much of a completionist you are.  100% worth the ride though just for the characters alone!

I agree that once you get the gist of both games it is pretty straightforward. But you will still die a-fucking-lot. DS3 still holds the edge for me though solely because of Irithyll Dungeon. The bosses in DS3 were also way more challenging than in BB. In my opinion that is.

I loved BB but for me, DS3 takes the crown, its the pinnacle of From Software

Horizon: Zero Dawn

This game is brilliant, and easily has the best graphics of anything to date!

Same here, and same opinion. Love me some Tomb Raider/Witcher gameplay, and this is just marvelous

Played through ABZU.  Light on mechanics, but gorgeous and relaxing and fun.

Now digging into DC Universe Online and having a lot of fun with it.

Finished Horizon, and holy balls is the game amazing.  Worth playing just for the wicked sci-fi story, thankfully the whole package is just as good.

Now playing Nioh... I think this game is more annoying then Dark Souls, it has this retarded mechanic where you have to hit the dodge button twice to roll and its cause me more then a few deaths!

Finished Layers of Fear and god this game is scary. Haven't played a game like that in a while. You really dont know what to expect next. Doors vanishing, crazy little dolls giving you the creep. It's not a long game about 5-6 hours max. You can clearly see the P.T. (Silent Hills) worshiping.

Dear Esther. Good game again not that long 2 hours max

I can't believe I came back to it so soon, but I got right back into Skyrim and it has already been such a different experience.  I was a dark elf last time, running fully as a mage.  This time I am playing a true Nord, and plan to side with the Stormcloaks this time just to get the other side. 

Real question though:
I have been very curious about the Elder Scrolls Online.  However, my play time is very random, and not very much time goes into a session.  Probably about 45 minutes to an hour at the most when I play a game.  Given this fact, can anyone who has played the Online version confirm if TES Online is a good purchase or not for me?  I would just plan on playing it solo, and just explore and do things at a rather slow pace.  I can't seem to find exactly the right answers to my concerns about it.  I heard some people who loved the other base games hated the online version, while others loved it.  Not sure what I can expect to feel about it.

I'm always impressed at what Naughty Dog is capable of creating.

Now continuing my Fallout 4 game. Stopped when I had to choose between the 4 factions over a year ago. Was quite confuse when I came back. I cam back because I bought the Season pass (70$ in Canada for the Season Pass) but there was a sale and bought it for 45$.

Then after Fallout 4:

Rise Of The Tomb Raider
Until Dawn
Batman Arkham Knight
Metal Gear Solid 5: Phantom Pain
Deux Ex: Humankind Divided
Far Cry 4
Star Ocean
Tales of Zesteria
