I figured this deserved to be a topic, since sometimes we don't have enough to say about a specific game to warrant an entire thread of its own, but we might not necessarily want to say a game's "awesome" or "not so awesome" either tongue.gif

As for me, I've been playing the 2008 Prince of Persia. I quite enjoy this game. The gameplay flows really well, you're never doing the same thing for too long and you can't get game over, so it's a pretty hard game to put down. I also like how most of the dialogue is optional, so that if I were to play it again I wouldn't have to sit through it. Also, having to activate it myself makes me feel in control so I think that I'm subconsciously less frustrated by excessive dialogue segments.

You know as well as I do; Boys love games. tongue.gif

I had previously played a string of great games (Bioshock, Muramasa, Mass Effect) and then played some mediocre ones (DMC4, Lost Planet, Dead Rising), so I stopped playing them. Well, I played through DMC4, despite the lame parts.

It's odd that this holiday season has almost no games that interest me' all the games I want are coming out early next year.

I want games that are coming out for the holiday season and ones that come out in January. This is frustrating because it means I'll have to pick and choose.

MODERN WARFARE TWOOOOOOOOOO! (Got it out of my system. I promise. =P Get on the train while you can. Seats are limited.)

To be honest, there really isn't that much that interests me that much right now either. Well, maybe Left 4 Dead 2. Mostly though I'm waiting for next year. (Read: Bioshock 2.) I can tell I'm going to have teh great fun.

Also, I cannot for the life of me see why I'm unwilling to play through mass-effect as any other class than soldier. I guess tech/biotic abilities aren't enough appeal to me to warrant a playthrough with a class that has them. Maybe a hybrid class might entice me, maaaaybe.

I just love utility classes in games like Mass Effect. I want to be able to see the whole game, and it's easier to fool the game into thinking you're better at combat than your character would seem to be (cheese a fight) than it is to fool the game into thinking you have a particular passkey skill (like, for example, lockpicking, if you're going to go exploring in Oblivion).

I'm stuck on an old box back home now (I get Low System Resource warnings when Steam Chat and Firefox are running at the same time), so I'm not doing a whole hell of a lot of modern gaming. Left my DS at my apartment, too, so none of that on the flight to or the ride out of Boston, otherwise I'd likely have finished FF4 by now. Still need to find FF5, and am about halfway through FF6. Last week, I was doing a bit of L4D2, and look forward to playing some more of that when I get back to school. Played a bit of Half-Life: Opposing Force. Thinking about reinstalling Diablo II on this machine so I can play some of that. Tower of Greed on Kong runs well enough.

I just beat a whole mess of games... and feel like reviewing them.


I just beat Torchlight: It's a nice dungeon crawler, and It's probably best summed up as : Fate, with classes, and a tiny bit of story. Despite being kind of repetitive, and having long (but infrequent) loading times, It's a pretty good game.

Brave Story: Quite possibly the most typical JRPG I've played. It does what every other JRPG does, so it's kind of bland. While it's very same-y, I'd still say it's a little above average. Doesn't hit great though.

L4D2:Great FPS, I like the new additions, but dislike how it's harder. I like how not every game ends with a showdown now.


Minesweeper: It's pretty good, Rather challenging. I wasn't sure If I could make to the end, but the story just had me hooked. I don't want to ruin the plot twists for you, so I'm not mention any spoilers. Great game, followed the movie closely.

I'm playing the Playstation 3 Tales of Vesperia, my friend has to sit behind me while I ask her what's going on. It's fun regardless of whether or not I understand it.

Can't really afford any shiny games right now, but I did recently get Soul Nomad. It's like oger battle if oger battle were a good game. Gig, the thursits, the gameplay, pretty much everything gets thumbs up. The biggest let down is that that the world eaters, thus far, have been so pathetically easy. You'd think fighting 50 foot tall reality shattering monsters worshipped as gods would be tougher than, like, a dancer.

I like to go with Soldier/Biotics and then bring along Tali, who can open all doors and chests for me and Wrex, who is also Soldier/Biotics. But you have a point about being able to fool the game about combat easier than passkey skills. If ME didn't have a party system I'd be a lot less inclined to use the class I do.

And you can get Pirate Girl! But hadn't you played Vesperia before?

There are so many SRPGs nowadays. It makes me sad because I feel I no longer have the patience to play them like I used to.

There are? Well, not enough quality ones. sad.gif

As for my Mass Effect class, I played the Tech/Soldier class because I like having skills besides basic offense and that class also had the ability to use the sniper rifle well. Sold! For my next playthrough, I'll probably play as an Adept (Biotics alone).

Yeah, but now I get Flynn, and my friend can translate the skits for me.

Ah right, skits. I guess there would be some new ones, huh.

As far as I can see srpgs are still pretty rare. For every one I can think of there are at least dozen jrpgs and 20 fps's. Still, playing them all to 100% completion would be an impractical goal.

Yeah, I know they aren't super plentiful, but I remember back in the day it was like Final Fantasy Tactics and maybe Ogre Battle and Front Mission if you could actually find them.

Then it all changed when Atlus brought over Disgaea and opened the Nippon Ichi flood gates.
