What Are You Playing?

Posted by Gentlemen Death on Saturday, December 27, 2008

So, the topic explains it all folks. What are you playing right now? Right now, I just finished the new Call of Duty: World In Flames and it was good. It was nice going back to playing a WWII game after playing other FPS for the last couple of months. One of the things I did not like about the game was that it felt short. After finishing the final chapter and the creditcs came up, I sat there thinking," That's it.....?" And well, it was. Multiplayer is good but of course if anyone else has played CoD4 will know it gets very frustrating at times. Overall I would give it a 8/10

Downloaded Streets of Rage for my Genesis emulator, and the '88 Superman arcade game for MAME.

I've found arcade games are less exciting when you you can drop in another "coin" with the push of a button and not have it cost you a thing.

I went back to play a bit of Burnout Paradise recently, and it was just as fun as ever. I might have to plunk down some cash to buy the new Legendary Cars pack. The Delorean knockoff looks like it would be especially fun to drive.

However, most of my time has been sucked away by Lego Star Wars. There's just something that keeps pulling me back into it, trying to get to 100% completion. The game is insanely addicting for some reason.

yeah with the GTA4 dlc out, I was planning on getting back into it, but I find myself playing Fallout3 because I want to find all the locations and finishing the quests.

I have been trying to play games that do not have to do with FPS, so I tried out Afro Samurai and Prince of Persia.

Afro was actually, a fun game. There is more to it then hack/slash. It follows the tv show fairly well and action is easy and fun.....However, at times when battling bosses the game never tells you how do kill him or even in the beginning of the game, there is no tutorial so you go throghout the whole game trying to figure out how to deflect a bullet. That was extremely frustrating. Other then that, awesome game with some very good music by the RZA.

Prince of Persia is really fun as well, if you like climbing around and jumping from one structure to another. There is some sword fighting with bosses and the chick who is following you uses some magic here and there. I am still playing this game but from what I have played so far, not bad...not bad at all.

I keep my standards low, that way im never dissapointed

I really liked Prince of Persia, and I'm interested in playing the Epilogue DLC that comes out this week. It is supposed to add some more difficulty to the platforming stuff.

I played around in Burnout this weekend with the Legendary Cars. I have to say that they are definitely worth a purchase if you like spending time in Paradise City. You CAN change the paint jobs for the cars, so the first thing I did was to make the Dukes of Hazzard knockoff car its proper orange color. I really loved driving the Delorean around as it has a completely unique feel when it is in hover mode. However, I was surprised to find that my favorite car to mess around with was the KITT knockoff. That thing is insanely fast!

I am also insane in that I started playing both Lost Odyssey and Oblivion this weekend. I put several hours into each, and I fully expect to love both games.

I doubt that I'll keep playing both at once. Either that, or I will keep bouncing between the two, and it will take me months to finish them.

Sorry Lost Odyssey, Oblivion has started to sink its hooks into me. You're just gonna have to wait on the back burner a while.

As of last night, I'm now the Grand Champion of the Arena in the Imperial City, and I even have a fan. Maybe I'll get around to actually saving the world someday....

yeah that's my problem with Fallout 3. I keep getting busy doing all the little side quests and building weapons and stuff, I keep forgetting about saving the world :)

I will say one thing about Fallout 3, the choices they present for some of the quests are truly hard to decide. I did the Tenpenny Tower one, and later came back to find out the ghoul I had worked so hard to get into the building had done something bad. If I had known that, I would have really taken a different track in that quest and just killed him. I am currently working on Oasis quest, and I am torn on how to complete it. No wonder Fallout 3 is such a great game.

Now if only it wouldn't lock up occasionally after I've been playing for hours.....

I jumped on the bandwagon and checked out F.E.A.R just so I could play F.E.A.R 2 and I was pleasantly surprised by this game. It offers nothing new to the first person shooter other then the slow motion fighting like the Matrix films.

I thought that this game was going to be a scarier trip into the paranormal but instead it barely focuses on it except for when you take a quick corner and there is a little girl who suddenly leaps at your face.....yeah.....

Still though, it was a fun game. A good enough game to have me go ahead and check out the second one. I have not had a chance to play it but I am sure it should be a fun, mindless shooter!

I haven't played either F.E.A.R. game, but I have heard from a few different places that the second game is better than the first.

So, I finished F.E.A.R 2:Project Origin and all in all...not a bad game. Yes this new one is more polished with the graphics and less bugs but the walking system needs to go.

As for the story, its a good one but seems like the writers were trying to do too much at once. And as for an actual scare factor, none really. There was one stage in paticular that did give me some goosebumps but nothing compared to Dead Space.

It's a FPS and that's it. Some basic weapons with a somewhat thought out story. And for some reason, it's fun. I would give it a 7 1/2 out of 10.

Now..I have no clue what to pick up next....

Have you finished Prince of Persia yet? I liked running around in the game so much that I even went around to find all 1001 light seeds on a second playthrough.

As for what you should pick up next.....umm.....Resident Evil 5?

Resident Evil will be a game that I most likely will just buy flat out. The games I have been playing lately I have just been able to....let's say 'rent' for free.

I struggled between Call of Juarez and LotR:Conquest and when it came down to it. I went ahead with LotR game. I have not played it but from what everyone tells me, it's Star Wars: Battlefront.....but Lord of the Rings... We will just have to see about that....

I've been playing RE5 since last Thursday. I've only gotten about halfway through because I keep going back to replay previous levels. It's an amazingly fun game. I can't wait to get home from work and play it some more. Me and my one buddy have only tried out Co-op over Xbox Live once, but it seemed like it could be tons of fun.

Itchy. Tasty.

That's what I have been hearing about the RE5 game... I might have to steal some money a lot sooner then I thought so I can pick up the game....

...As for LotR:Conquest...God, this game blows! This has to be one of the worst games I have played in the last year. The camera system sucks and when you swing your sword its like your swinging it through some sludge...I played the game for about an hour before I put it down....never to be picked up again...

Being a big LOTR fan, I really wanted LOTR: Conquest to be good, and it seemed to have a lot of potential before it came out. However, reviews were not kind, and I didn't like the demo when I played it. I really liked the previous LOTR action games based on the movies, so I was disappointed when Conquest wasn't anywhere near as fun as those were.

Yeah, saying that his game was horrible is a huge understatement...

I am going to have to try out Call of Juarez next....especially since they just announced a sequal on the way...or I mean, prequal.

Fallout 3 just released another DLC, call The Pitt. Getting better reviews than the Anchorage released earlier.

So I've finished the main storyline of Oblivion, several guild quests, and the Knights of the Nine. I've put about 60 hours into the game so far, and there is still a ton of stuff left to do. However, since I was at a fairly good stopping point, I decided to put Oblivion down for the moment to play through some other games.

Since Bioshock is the game that has been sitting around for too long, I picked it back up, and I played a ton of it this weekend. I am currently partway through the Fort Frolic level for those of you who have played it. I have discovered that I am a compulsive hacker and an ammo conservationist. Most of the time, I use my wrench to kill baddies, saving precious ammo for big encounters. As far as the Big Daddies are concerned, electric buckshot and a super-powered shotgun are my friends.

Please tell me that you did not install Bioshock on your PC.

I played it, but found that it didn't live up to its original hype of being a deep and open action-RPG. The game is very linear, and there is so much of Rapture to explore. Also, I didn't find the story as utterly amazing as some of its fanboys and fangirls proclaim. I mean, it was fun, and it's definitely a very pretty and atmospheric game. The graphics and sound design are quite good. It just didn't live up to the hype, and if you're a PC gamer, it's certainly not worth installing SecuROM on your PC. I may have mentioned my disdain for that trash before.

I bought a used copy of Call of Duty:World at War. Loving the flamethrower and vehicles, but not liking how I can't play some multiplayer games because I haven't coughed up 800 credits for the map pack.

Still working my way through the singleplayer campaign, but I have played some online multi enough to level up to 10.

Only if you count the several times it came up on Mania....
I have the 360 version of Bioshock. So far, the story is so-so, but the setting and atmosphere of the game are great. It's a lot of fun to play, and at least the story isn't as bad as a lot of shooters out there.

Bioshock is one of my favorite games. The story, feel and overrall gameplay was nice considering many games todday are centered around war.

Bioshock2 will hopefully drop this year but I have a feeling it might be out early next year. Also, if you have read this month's issue of GameInformer there is a couple page's about what the game will be about. One of the biggest about Bioshock2 is....you play as a Big Daddy!!!!

I am going through Resident Evil 5 right now, taking my time with it and I have to say that I am pretty impressed. I held out getting it for awhile and then decided to say fuck it and give it a chance. The graphics in the game are amazing and the story is pretty good as well.

Some of the things that I DON'T like about the game is that I have to STOP moving to reload my gun and to fire it. So, when I am running away from a hoard of zombies I have to stop....reload...and continue running.

I am still not done with the game so I will most likely come back and type out some more shit once I have dealt with the game...

I get the whole "must stop to fire your gun" thing, but not being able to reload while moving is a bit silly....unless you're doing it bullet by bullet. Otherwise, just slap a cartridge in there!
