Man Fallout 3 is a great game, I just have such a hard time getting into it again. This guy wants to trade me either Rage or Dead Island for it, I might take him up on that

Bioshock Infinite.

I feel conned: this is not what I was expecting in the least. The supposed revolution in AI is bullshit: Elizabeth may well interact naturally with her surroundings, but she'll still stand in a fucking doorway you're trying to get through. And her combat skills are limited to sitting in a corner and giving you some ammo once in a while. I've played plenty of games where friendly AI was more intuitive and useful than this dumb bitch. Her voice actress is appallingly flat too.

Irrational always made games with atmosphere, something sadly lacking in this game. I don't if it's the bright colours, the lack of any real challenge or boring story (one further hindered by piss poor pacing) or a combination of all three, but it fails to create any sense of danger or feeling. To quote Andrew Ryan 'There's two ways to deal with mystery: uncover it, or eliminate it'. Levine has chosen the latter.

The only thing this game does right is the presentation: it is stunning to look at (on PC) and the interface is solid, but these are minor considerations compared to its massive failings.

4/10

Pretty similar to the previous Bioshock games, though a bit more limiting than Bioshock 2. I ignored the options that Elizabeth brought to the game for the most part because they don't have much impact (you'd think bringing a turret into the world be a massive advantage but they have nowhere near the power of previous games). And yes there are combat customisation options. The melee build in this game is pretty broken with the right gear (you can get items that return health on melee hit etc) and maxed out Charge vigor. It's only an aesthetic thing, but my biggest gripe with it is that the weapon mods had no visual representation.

i gotcha. i always got really excited to see what each upgrade would do to my weapon. thats a damn shame, cuz i was hoping that since the story was falling apart, they would take combat customization to a higher level. what absolute failure.

Playing Uncharted 2, way better than the first one. Average gun fights, but so much effort was put into the story and interesting sequences

yeah Uncharted 2 was really fun. Sometimes the camera made movement and platforming a bit confusing, ruining the cinematic feel, but overall awesome game.

I've heard really good things about Farcry 3 too. Anybody played that? Thinking about buying it.

Farcry 3 was the best game of last year by far. I would recommend it without a seconds hesitation.

Farcry 1 and 2 were incredibly bad. I guess they must have turned it around because I remember just hating my life playing those games

farcry 2 was really frustrating. fucking weapons would get rusty and break. hated it. plus the enemy AI could hide like fucking predator in the jungle, yet shoot you from anywhere.

Theres like a million FF games on the PSN.

Does anyone have PSN? Looks like you get to play free shit every month. I know when your subscription ends you can't revisit them. But if you are subscribed can you play past months games?

Beat Castlevania and figured I would play all of them. Started Simon's Quest, not as bad as everyone else has made it out to be, but we'll see how it is.

I think there is a new one that kind of looks like a DMC game.

FF6.

Opened email today. Find acceptance into the Elder Scrolls Online beta (that came about 8 days ago) that I completely forgot I even applied for. So I'll be playing that this weekend. Awesome. Took up a fuck-ton of HD space though.

Traded some guy online Fallout 3 for Rage

Kind of expected it to be horrible

Its actually pretty acceptable. The enemy AI is actually pretty hard to shoot in the face. I dig it. Way more character than I thought

I never had the motivation to finish Rage, it just felt boring. Plus it has the most screen tearing in a game that I have ever seen.

Ahah fuck I thought it was just me.
Literally you look away from something, then turn back and it needs to load again

Am I the only one that is completely enamored by indie gaming? I'm so stoked for the new infinity-engine style RPGs coming out, like Wasteland 2, Project Eternity and, most of all, Torment: Tides of Numenera. There are also dozens of other indie games that have been released, and other kickstarter ones, that excite me more than almost any AAA or big-budget title coming out.

You should buy The Binding of Isaac
Every time you play it it is completely new but you unlock new things and the game slowly gets longer. Unreal game. I grabbed it and its expansion for a total of like $2.50 and I put in a good 40 hours I think. Told my roommate and he did the same. Gameplay videos wont do it justice

I love the Binding of Issac! Great game, I need to play it a bit more actually. I've probably only played for like 3 hours

Mass Effect 3. It's pretty fun, wish EA didn't buy it

Makes me want to play number 2 again, I get pretty excited when I run into the old teammates
Garrus and Sheperd have a great bromance
