Title: What Game Are You Playing?
Post by: Sek'Tal Alcyone on March 16, 2013, 10:13:58 AM
Well, I'm what you would call a casual gamer I guess but, I do enjoy shooting virtual people now and then because it makes me happy, ya know?
Just finished up Max Payne 3 which I thought was awesome, I suck at the multiplayer modes though.
Currently playing Just Cause 2, loved the first, saw this cheap so figured I'd give it a go.

Still playing Just Cause 2. It took me quite a while to get into it, maybe I was looking at it as another GTA clone? I dunno, a couple of hours, maybe half way through and I'm starting to really enjoy it.
Also playing Max Payne 3 multiplayer, somehow I got me 100% trash talk on my rep rating on live, not sure how as I don't have a mic lol

I'm just chilling with Far Cry 3 at the moment, I can't believe it's better that the second. Taking my time with this though, not going to rush through it.

Mixxing up Far Cry 3 with Ultimate Meverl V. Capcom 3

So, so close till Mortal Kombat 9 is released here, MK being my second favourite franchise of all time I'm so fucking pumped. Been waiting since 2011 thanks you Australia's gay ass laws. Plus, FREDDY KRUEGER is a playable character, as if that shit isn't a fucking low blow. Fuck you Australia.

On an RPG kick atm. Been exploring the world of Oblivion over the last couple of weeks and just picked up Fallout 3 and New Vegas today. Never been a huge RPG fan but it seems that I've seen the light.

Was not a fan of Fallout 3.

Don't really like many of Bethesdas epics really. The only one I do like is Skyrim.

Yesterday I finally finished the 300 Challenge Tower missions in mortal Kombat 9. Some of them took hours and hours to complete. -__-

The final one was pretty damn easy though. Freddy Krueger and his speed <3

Time to finish off Story mode and clear Arcade with all fighters.

Well, I'm really enjoying it to be honest. I'm also playing the Doom 3 BFG addition. Regarding Doom 1 and 2, it says a lot that I've played them on every console/pc I've owned and still enjoy them in 2013.
Title: Re: What Game Are You Playing?
Post by: General Ox on May 27, 2013, 03:51:03 AM
DOOM 3 is GREAT! I was let down with the BFG edition though, not as shined up as could be, and that stupid duct tape tourch sucks out the entire atmosphere. And really took me out of it. It's not scary when you can see all the time  sacrificing sight for protection was so suspenseful hahaha.

Got another week off work after this eye op so I decided to start Skyrim from the beginning. Also playing COD World At War, my personal favorite COD game.

Skyrim is great, but I don't play it much. It comes in waves. It will be all I do for a good month. Then I won't touch it again for months. It's a weird cycle.

I fucking hate COD. I never got to play WaW but always wanted to (I like the WWI/WWII era games). I'm not a fan of the modern warfare age.

Do you play on Xbox or PS man?

I've been playing it almost non stop for the last three or four days now. I'm really enjoying it. I'm doing as many side quests as I can before I tackle the main quest though.
WAW is great. I feel the Black Ops and Modern Warfare thing has gone way too far. Not only that but the propaganda present in those games is almost unreal.
I'm on Xbox but I just cancelled my Gold account today, I rarely played online so it seemed like a waste of money.

Skyrim is great and so vast. I've done a lot but havent really made a solid dent in it. Ive become a tad stuck in the story where you fight the main evil Dragon for the first time. Hint keep the Staff of Magnus if you get it. Apparently its great to use on him. I sold it because Im a greedy cunt. And now have to buy it back for a million times what I got for it lol .

Im a Battlefield guy. So much more realistic and challenging. And its not just 'point and shoot'. Or full of 12 year old tools.

I really, really wanted to enjoy the first but I just could not get into it. Does this fix a few of the nagging issues that the first game had?

I can't say.  I only played about an hour of Metro 2033 and put it up.  Having said that, I love Metro LL, and will probably go revisit 2033 later.

Mass Effect is great. Although it is pretty lame compared to Mass Effect 2, which is easily the franchises best. 3 Is good, but nothing they did would have topped ME2. Make sure you play them all!!

I didn't mind Metro 2033. Wasn't great but it wasn't awful, you can finish it in a day or so even on the top difficulty. It's pretty damn short.
Title: Re: What Game Are You Playing?
Post by: Sek'Tal Alcyone on August 29, 2013, 03:43:54 AM
Well, I've finished the first game. I really enjoyed it actually but it was all over far too quickly. I was expecting a little more if I'm honest. I will certainly be picking up 2 and 3 though.
There's really not enough Sci Fi based RPGs on the 360. I mean you have Mass Effect and Fallout but.....what else?
Title: Re: What Game Are You Playing?
Post by: General Ox on August 29, 2013, 08:05:44 AM
Dont worry. 2 is a lot more fleshed out. As long as you just dont focus on all the primary stuff.

The side quests just didn't seem worth the effort, normally they're something I would do but I just didn't see the point with Mass Effect.

Yeah but as I said the second is a lot more fleshed out. And it highly more reliant on your friends. Each have their own sort of goal. And doing them help you at the end of the game greatly. They aren't little slap on things either. The improvement between ME1 and ME2 is unbelievable.

I'll probably pick it up in the week. Just got a copy of Nier. I've heard mixed reviews but I think it looks great.

Finished Diablo 3 yesterday. It gets faaar too easy on Hard (in Normal mode) once you hit level 25+. I didn't go up to Master I though. I think I finished on Level 32. Going to re-play. Probably keep using my Witch Doctor!

Ninja Gaiden 3
It's easily the weakest but I love these games. I had't played it for 5 months. Thought I owe it to the franchise to finish it before I get the One. I did. I don't like all the sappy shit they put into it. I liked the ending though, Ryu running off all lone wolf again. I would have sued if he settled down with a family.

Been playing MK again too. Thought I might as well finish Arcade with all the characters before the One hits. I only have about 8 to go.

Finished Mass Effect 2. Pretty sure I got the bad ending. Everyone died apart from joker :(
Title: Re: What Game Are You Playing?
Post by: General Ox on November 10, 2013, 03:47:48 PM
Like it more than 1? Such an amazing game.

And are you serious? lol I didn't know that could happen. Wow. YOu're going to be fucked on ME3.. lol

No one died for me! Took me a few goes but I eventually worked out who to send on what missions. It also helps A LOT if you've done each characters little side missions.

I finished Assasin Creed 3. I wasn't going to bother doing so but I saw a review of Black Flag on TV and it looks fucking awesome. I just love the pirate stuff, and the naval missions are easily the best thing about 3. So I really want to play Black Flag. And I can't skip games in franchises so I finished AC3. Wasn't as bad as I remembered.

These games need difficulty settings though.

I did enjoy it more than 1, yes. Yeah to be honest, I might play through it again lol I was proper vexed when Garrus died "Aw, what the FUUUUUUCk!?!?!" I like that guy. Gonna finish Dragon Age and then maybe tackle ME2 again.
Title: Re: What Game Are You Playing?
Post by: General Ox on November 12, 2013, 03:13:14 PM
I've played through it twice. The entire 3 twice. Apart from 3. I played one and two again a month before 3 hit the shelves to re-fresh my memory. I think it saves just before the finale mission. You can replay it. Or maybe I saved it manually. I know if you send the Geth ally on the mission to go through the vents and shut the doors he does it without dying. ;)

Dragon Age aye. Haha I remember playing that, wasn't too bad. I heard the sequel was shit so I never bothered with it.
Title: Re: What Game Are You Playing?

Still on Dragon Age : Origins. I absolutely love this game. I'm around 14/15 hours deep right now. Also playing Warhammer 40k Space Marine in little bursts here and there.

I went to the midnight release Thursaday night. Had to work Friday. Stayed up ALL night playing. Went to work. Ended up being too wet to work, came home and continued playing for another 36 hours straight..

It's fucking amazing. I's so, so damn good. I've got Battlefield 4 and Ryse. There are some minor game changes from BF# to 4 which I don't like (but will get used to) otherwise it's better in every way. 64 player matches rule.

Ryse is so fucking pretty. Visually stunning. And it's fucking fun; and graphic. Jesus. You fuck some cunts riiiight up.

You heard wrong. I'm only on the fourth mission but I'm really enjoying it so far. A refreshing change from the plague of copy/paste first and third person shooters that seem to dominate the market.

I think it's a reboot of sorts of an old PC franchise called UFO. You might be thinking of The Bureau which is a third person shooter set in the XCOM universe, I've heard nothing but bad things as far as that one goes.

Took me a while to get into this. I have no prior experience with the series but once I got used to things, I started to love it. Definitely gonna play the original after this.
