U R MR GAY 2

Well, enjoyed the first, so I might as well try the second.

*after 8 hours straight*

:0 IT'S FUN! IT'S REALLY FUN! SOMETHING THE WII'S BEEN MISSING RECENTLY!

No but seriously, Super Mario Galaxy 2 pretty much, like everyone says, takes all the stuff that was good in the first one, and just made it all the more better.

..

Well,... almost everything.

Super Mario Galaxy 2
Wow... this is totally the best Wii game I've ever played next to Twilight Princess. As said it's like the first one, but even better and longer. And there are so much stuff put into it! I've always been a Mario fan... and I have to say it beats every single Mario game I've ever played (even those good old Super Mario Bros. games)

Duke Nukem 3D

I seriously forgot how awesome this game is. The crappy one-liners that make Capcom scripts look like Shakespeare, the absurd weaponry, the one liners, the bad 3D perspective, the one liners, the almost-porn, the one liners, the searching for secret areas, the one-liners.

Look in a mirror "Damn! I look good!" Click on the Duke Nukem 2 arcade game "I have no time to play with myself" see the DOOM reference "That is one DOOMed space marine"

Awesome game!

Playing Duke Nukem 3D is not as much fun as plaing in Ken Silverman's Build Engine. The Engine that DN3D is based on, Blood, Shadow Warrior (great game), Redneck Rampage, Outlaws, Witcheaven & many more old school FPP's.

There isn't any good care-free FPP's nowdays. Either war "simmularors", sci-fi bullshiet or anything else that's gloomy. I want a FPP with plain story, toilet humour, macho hero (like Duke) and other releated stuff.
Crysis 2 my arse.

I've dug up my old Amiga 500, aka. the greatest home computer ever and I've played :

Cannon Fodder 1&2, Superfrog, Dune, Space Hulk, Moonstone, UFO : Enemy Unknown, Ruff'n'Tumble, Centurion, Zool 2, Mortal Kombat 2...

and many, many others.

I've tossed my Xbox 360 aside and I enjoy truly great games on a truly great machine of a great era.

Games today... I thought it's just me, for a moment, that I don't enjoy games in general anymore, but I can play this oldschool stuff for hours so I really do think that modern games suck donkey ass.

Gears of War Yeah yeah, I know this game is from 2006 and a lot of you are going, "Eh? You've only just NOW played this? Where have you been?" I'll tell you where: playing better games, that's where. Man the controls are horrible in this. Why is the sprint button the same as the 'duck-into-cover' button? Why are grenades so hard to throw? Why is EVERYTHING brown and gray? I couldn't tell enemies from teammates half the time. Wait, you can tell the difference because teammates are the ones being highlighted as needing revived because the AI is so bad. Meh, I honestly couldn't play this one for more than an hour.

Nier Eh? What is this and what's going on? Well that's a question I was still wondering even after playing for a few hours. The combat controls are decent, I guess, even though the magic is a bit overpowered but then again maybe that was the point. What really turned this one off for me, though, were all the pointless little other features thrown in for giggles. It seems like every JRPG I've played lately has been shit mainly because of all the pointlessness. Why are there side scrolling sections? Why are there birds eye view box puzzles? Why are there so many shitty fetch quests on the side? It was ultimately the introduction of an unskippable fishing minigame with controls that make me want to set fire to my house that made me abandon the game.

Yeah I've been giving Oblivion a lot of playtime recently as well despite having owned the "Game of the Year Edition" on PC for over a year now. Originally I had to get over the lack of true RPG style gameplay, then I had to get over the weird leveling system. After I finally said, "You know what? I'm gonna give this game a real honest solid try, first person action gameplay and leveling system be damned," I discovered that it's actually a really really good game.

First of all, the leveling system doesn't actually gimp you as bad as people claim it does if you don't do it exactly right. Odds are you're going to want to get your level to the 20s at least to get the best gear to drop and even if you get only +2/+3 to your attributes each time you'll probably end up with really good or even maxed main attributes. A far bigger contributing factor to the difficulty is your own playing skill, the difficulty bar setting, and of course, the horrible horrible AI of your allies.

I couldn't get into that game although I tried many times.

Still, The Elder Scrolls III : Morrowind is one of my all-time favourite games. Actually it's 3'rd in my best list. Especially with Bloodmoon add-on, where you discover a prophecy of Blood Moon and are turned into a Werewolf. And when you're changed, you can really feel the power of that beast. Morrowind, IMO, has the most immersing open world ever created in a video game. It sucks you in and don't want to let out. Plot and side quests are also great and heavily time-consuming.

I couldn't find it in Oblivion. It isn't immersive at all, it has boring side quests, ugly presentation and it's overall anti-climatic.

37 Re: What have you recently played? on Sun Jun 13, 2010 7:42 pm

I have never played Morrowind, the main thing I didn't like about Oblivion was the broken magic system, and the people/generic NPCs.

Now there are great NPCs, like Sheogorath and the main ones, however the generics were not well done. Couldn't you grab like, 30 people off the street and said "Here's 100$, speak into this microphone", hell, you'd be getting great voice acting.

In fact, make it a contest. Next ES game say "Here are lines, those with a PayPal account or something similar, record your voice clearly saying XXXXXXXX and we will take the best 25-50 and give you $100" and I swear that you'll get true, awesome generic NPCs walking around. Plus it is great for community.

Second on NPCs was their looks after I played Fallout 3. God they look unattractive. Lucy West some of these bitches up for the next game.

Fallout 3
Some rebooting of my PC had actually managed to delete my files for this game oddly enough. Lucky, I wasn't that far into the game, but I'm trying now to complete it thinking of New Vegas that's coming in September. It's actually one of my favourite games of all time (even though not yet completed) and I'm having a real good time playing it.

39 Re: What have you recently played? on Sun Jun 20, 2010 4:08 am

Deus Ex - I've lost my count on how many times I've beaten this game, that is a state of art crafted by godlike mind Warren Spector and brave souls from Ion Storm. Still stays stronger than any new game, after ten years, in terms of story, immersivnes, freedom of choice and music. Not so much for the graphics, but for me even this aspect is still great - Unreal Engine was (and is) my favourite until Unreal 2003. Then it lost it's charm.
Anyway, who hasn't played DX should be ashamed. Anyone who likes sci-fi, precisely cyberpunk and conspiracies - should ponder about his existence and changing his intrests into My Little Pony or something in that genre.

Broken Sword : Shadow Of The Templars - when I was a kid I've bought myself Broken Sword 2 in english, for my hard earned money. I loved the game, then, many moons later I've beaten Broken Sword 3 wich was piece of crap and Broken Sword 4 wich was ok., although still too dark compared to the second one. Still, I've only recently had a chance to get my hands on Shadow Of The Templars. Is it a good game? Some quotes :

George Stobbart: You speak very good English for a French girl.
Nicole "Nico" Collard: Thanks. You speak very good English for an American


Moue: [pointing a gun at George] Freeze! Hold it... right there!
George Stobbart: Woah! Don't shoot! I'm innocent! I'm an American!
Moue: Can't make up your mind, huh?


How a game with that dialogs could be a bad game? Very Happy
The only letdown is low difficulty level for an adventure game.

Team Fortress 2
Finally got back to playing it. Still awesome ^^

Left 4 Dead 2
Zombie killing co-op for teh win.

Borderlands
Another great co-op game, which I've finally had the chance to play online. I dig it... a LOT, and there's a big load of fun to find here.

Gears of War
Not like Ganthan on the top of the site, I do like this game and don't feel especially annoyed by the controls, but when I set myself into multiplayer... I get pwned so hard I almost cry.

Assassin'c Creed II
This game was amazing and it's the first one I've got all the achievements to. Some of the combat ones were a real pain in the ass, but I didn't feel like giving up at any point.

The Path

It's hard to call that gem a game. It's a rather artistic piece, less litereal than "Dark Eye" (no, not that piece of crap that Darkensang is), but in the simmilar spirit and the controls limitation.

For those who don't know that gem, it's a variation about the Red Ridding Hood, a very grim one. It tells, or rather hints a story of six sisters, each of different age, each with different approach to the world. Every girl has the same goal, as the "player" may initially think - get to the grandmother's house, to wich leads a straight, sunny path.

Thing is, when you'll reach the house safe and sound, the game says you've failed, even though you've followed the main objective.

The real fun starts when you enter the woods.

When you venture into the woods, everything starts to change. Eerie music blends with strange sounds, the sunny and vibrant colors from the main path bleak and the path itself... dissapears. You can't go back, because you can't find the path. At least without the help of that little, pale girl in white dress.

But like I wrote before - delivering the food to the grandma isn't the way to "win".

The Path is, in fact, a psychological horror that scares with atmosphere and suggestions. Every single bit of information that you'll find (be that a lone swing in the middle of the woods or a single wall of the building) about the girls path it's up to you to interpretate. But there's no happy ending for any of these girls. To win, or rather - to not get the "you failed" message, you have to find wolf. And every girl has different wolf to discover. It could be a long-time-lost friend on a field full of flowers or a big wearewolf preying on the abandonned children playground.

Normal or casual gamers won't find anything interesting in this "game". The controls consist of left and right mouse button, the movements are slow, the camera deliberately wents out of control when we want to move faster. There is no killing, no action, there isn't much to read.
One must set his mind for an experience that will leave him with more questions than anwsers after finishing it. One thing is sure - there is no happy ending, but that's just the only anwser. The rest of the anwsers are for you to make, not to find. The same goes for questions - you have to ask them yourself.

I really recomend this gem to all of those people that are bored with games of the mainstream or games in general. It's an interactive story with virtually no story, and yes - it works. It's a beautiful and eerie experience that I've thought about (and I'm still thinking) long after I've finished it.

This product is avaliable on steam for about ten bucks. I strongly recomend it.

Mass Effect 2
One of the best games I've ever played and probably the best of the year so far. I'm not done with the game yet, I think I'm just halfways, but damn... I haven't encountered one single time where you have to go out with the mako on a planet... and thank God for that! I loved the first game so much, but this game takes away so much flaws from the first one! Sure, there are some things that goes under your skin, but who the f**k cares about that? Mass Effect 2 gives a better feeling of a shooter when they now have put in ammo for the weapons and the projectiles feels a little more like bulletts. Bioware know how to make RPG's, and it feels almost like you're playing a movie... I enjoy it for sure ^^ cause the dialouges are superb, and the gameplay a worthy experience.

Super Mario Galaxy 2
Ehehe, Yoshi ^^ Aah, it's good when one of your first video game heroes get up in one hell of a good game. It's funny to see the world traveling like in the Super Mario Bros. series and don't actually have to walk anywhere just to get to a new galaxy. How they have taken the outspring of Super Mario Galaxy and just made a whole new and even bigger game is just amazing. A must for every Wii-owner.

It's good when you're on vacation and just have a small amount of net speed. A fine reason to just hammer on games all alone and don't have the chance to get hooked on online gaming like so many times before... so I'm going to take down great games the next few weeks. Including Fallout 3 and Dragon Age: Origins.

Lionheart - Legacy Of The Crusader
A last cRPG game from the genious of Black Isle studio (now mostly Obsidian and Bioware) basing on a great 2D game engine that is Enfinity Engine.
The game had very little, to almost no advertising, compared to Icewind Dale II, not to mention Baldur's Gate 2, and that's the reason why it wasn't selling that good, because the game itself is far above decent, and few points above good. It is addictive, the story is somewhat gripping, especially for those that like alternative history settings, it has few nice plot twists, graphics are one of the best that Infinity Engine games can offer, music is very climatic, heroic and epic, without pathos. The only thing that I didn't liked that much, is the gameplay itself. It uses SPECIAL system that worked well in Fallout 1 & 2, but here (like in Arcanum) it's not so good. Mostly because the ingame fights are done in real time, not in turns, wich makes the positives of SPECIAL system basicly unvisible. Overall, the gameplay is dated, but I liked the games of that era, so it didn't bothered me that much.
All in all, if you're looking for a good story, nice settings and a classic fantasy epic, give Lionheart a try.

The Highly Responsive to Prayer and The Story of Eastern Wonderland
I've started on a quest to play and finish all the Touhou games in order, starting at the PC-98 games from 1996-1998. So far, I've found them harrowing and occasionally frustrating. Especially HRTP, which is a combination of the Arkanoid-type of games, and the bullet-hell shooter of the rest of the series. You have to dodge bullets and bounce a ball around in such a way that it hits the blocks/bosses. Keeping track of both the boss's attacks and the bouncing ball can be hard, and then you still need to pay attention to actually doing some damage. And all the stages are on a time limit. Had a lot of fun, though.
SOEW is a more common top-down shooter, basically the same as all the other games of the series. Only played it for a few days so far, but it has a nice difficulty curve. Starts quite easy, but it just keeps getting harder with every stage. Really easy controls and good music, but when the screen is filling up I sometimes lose track of where me and all the enemy bullets are.

Minecraft(classic)
Yeah, it's just playing with blocks, but I like designing and building stuff. Biggest problem I have is that it takes too long to build something large. Haven't really checked what the full game is about, yet. Maybe I should.
