Driving is awesome in Crackdown.  Mainly for the physics and craaaaaazy jumps.

Huh. I didn't have it in me to go for 1000/1000, but the property magnate in me was buying houses from the first moment I had enough funds. By 1/3 of the way through I had more money than I could spend, mainly because I didn't know that I could bump my stats with potions. I had enough to buy the castle and the same or more left over by the time it became available. Decent game but overhyped and repetitious.


yeah, I think I could only afford a stool and the pub. The story missions were over pretty quickly.

I had more fun with Alone in the Dark 360 than Fable 2 - the worst game I played this gen.

Eh, even the agency vehicles suck hairy stink until you hit 4 stars. Getting the jump function on the SUV makes it pretty damned awesome past that point, but it feels like a waste considering that I could have used that jump function to actually get the 4 star skill rating. Meh.

Fuck the Dualshock right in the ass.  I HATE that controller.

(Image removed from quote.)

I just bought one of these off Amazon.  Seems like only downside is that you can't turn the PS3 on or off with it.  Oh well.
 

Just want to say that for all you guys that hate the Dual Shock like I do, get this.  It came in the mail yesterday and the thing is AWESOME.  It feels so much better than the DS3 that it's like I'm playing my PS3 for the first time.  Only real downfall is that there's no Six Axis support but screw it, I don't care.

If I can't use my 360 controller for my PS3, then this is the next best substitute.

Played an hour or so of Prototype, but I don't think I'm going to stick with it. Pretty meh so far, and it feels a few years late to the "gratuitous violence because it's totally rad" parade.

The only game I can think of where sixaxis actually makes a real difference is Infamous, but it's not a big deal (it's for determining the direction of the lightning storm).

The Last Express, which I had to resort to downloading since nowhere seems to have it in stock.   :-\

whatever PSP game I feel like playing because I want to use my PSP 3000 since it's awesome.  Probably replaying Daxter or something.

How are the triggers (L2/R2 buttons)?

Good question, the bumpers look more like the shit annoying crapfuck 360 shoulder buttons, which would be a downgrade. Any other trigger design would be an improvement, though.

You're either quite fortunate or selective in what you play cause I've played stuff way worse than Fable II.

They're kinda like the Real Triggers in shape and while they don't feel as good as the 360's they're an improvement over the squishy concave design on the DS3.  However the bumpers (L1 & R1) look and feel  almost exactly the same as the DS.

I got Spyro on PSN from qore (home, etc) and it's pretty boring.  Were the Spyro games, or at least the first one, really popular or well received back when it was released? I've only played the demos of Spyro and Crash games before this.

I might try it out.  The problem with PS3/PS2 games is that some use R1/L1, others use R2/L2 and few let you change them around.

The Spyro games were pretty well received back in the day.  They gave me motion sickness for some reason.

Unless both the PSP and PS3 are able to work magic, Spyro actually looked alright.  I mean, it looked bad, but it didn't have the weird swimming textures a lot of PS1 games have.

And I don't get how the PSP/PS3 save sharing works.  I transferred the game to my PSP and save data was automatically created for my PSP, so I thought that was it, then I play and my save data didn't transfer over.

GBA spyro games are fantastic

The only one I know of is the side scroller that's apparently Castlevania/Metroid.

You can transfer your save by going to the memory utility, with your PSP plugged in to your PS3 via USB, and pressing triangle.

But, yeah, the implementation is stupid.  It should automatically sync saves for PSone games.

Persona 3 fes and Resistance Retribution by the looks it.

I'm starting it up this weekend, provided I mount up and finish the remaining few hours or so of Persona 4 I have left.

FES is great. More 'New Style' Persona formula.

I got my stick in, so this weekend is FIGHTING GAME EXTRAVAGANZA :hyper

Street Fighter 4, 3S, and Alpha Anthology
Tekken 5 DR
Soul Calibur 4
Samurai Shodown Anthology
Virtua Fighter 5
KOF XI
NGBC

I haven't really played on a stick in years. Some games are harder to adapt to than others...SF4 and VF5 I am sucking at. Tekken, SC, and SamSho are pretty great. KOF and Alpha middle of the road. I think my enjoyment directly relates to how many QCF/B motions are required. VF I think I just haven't played in forever. Back when I played in arcades (when they were alive), I got used to the corndog style joysticks, not the short, round ones. I will have to get over it, because I don't really want to mod one on...although I may spring for an eight-way gate.

Bring on BlazBlue, KOFXII, and T6!

I haven't even started on shooters yet! Gradius V will have to be broken out at some point.

Sooooo awesome. My wife getting soooo pissed.

It never really stops being easy.  That's my only real knock on Klonoa: Door to Phantomile.

Chinchilla: I'm not really qualified to speak on FES's differences from regular P3, as I only own FES.  I haven't even gotten to "The Answer" yet, which is the extra post-game story you can play through on FES.

From what I've heard, "The Answer" is supposed to be extra shitty.

After finishing God of War 2 today at 2 AM I will have to tackle the Challenge of the Titans. It sucks major donkey balls that you can only play "New Game+" on the difficulty you already beaten the game (Normal in my case). So If I want to play on God I can't use my costumes or Urns? Fucking annoying.

The Answer is good.  It's grindy and the story is weird but the ending is good, especially how it explains the ending of P3 in more detail.

Keep in mind The Answer was originally released a year after Persona 3 and was supposed to be an expansion pack for those who haven't played P3 in a year.  Obviously if you play it back to back with the main P3 game it'll feel like a repeat and burn you out quick.

Finally getting back into adventure games after an overlong hiatus. Trying to go through and catch up on some oldies that I missed out on. Here's what on my plate for the week:

The Dig- Fairly dry for a LucasArts adventure but I'm liking the atmosphere of the alien world. I did have to look up a solution fo a puzzle that aggravated me (one involving colored dots and a floating diamond).

Ween- Played briefly and immediately screwed up and blocked any progress I made into the game. I started over and learned from my mistake but I may not continue forth. It's a very goofy Myst-style game.

Sam and Max Hit the Road- Being a huge Monkey Island/DotT/Full Throttle fan it should be a given that I should have already played this. Nope. So now I'm making up for lost time. The humor holds up really well but it does have a few flaws when it comes to finding certain areas (ex: didn't know there was an elevator at the top of the giant ball of yarn). It'll be interesting to see how Tell Tales attempt holds up compared to this.

Other games on the list: Simon the Sorcerer, Legend of Kyrandia, King's Quest I, IJ:Fate of Atlantis, I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream, Scratches, Beneath the Steel Sky, Sanitarium

Also playing Diablo II, Street Fighter IV, and Mark of the Wolf when it comes out Wed.

Man, Ween is awesome. Crazy but awesome. There is another adventure game from the same dev studio, which is THE BEST FANTASY ADVENTURE GAME EVER (forget about King's Quests, The Longest Journey etc.) - it's called Shannara. I highly recommend it if you like:

a) fantasy adventure games
b) Ween (same style)

Checked out Shannara very briefly last night and it seems a bit more up my alley for what I'm looking for. I'll give it a shot later on.

I'll probably continue to pick at Ween piece by piece, but I'm not the biggest fan of adventure games that don't make you aware of when you reached a deadend.

Shannara is easie... more friendly than Ween.

Did you ever try the Goblins series? Crazy humour and puzzles there, highly recommended. G3 is the best in the series followed by G2, G4 and G1 being the worst.

By the worst I mean the most archaic, unintuituve and hard. It has its moments and overall charm but man, G2 and G3 especially the Chess or the Flea level annihilate G1... But by no means disregard this game just because the sequels are better! If you liked it then play it but remember - it's hard and kind of awkward.

Arma II is out here (UK) in the shops but not on Steam. The steam version comes out on 30 June, will probably buy that one.

I've caught up on the 360 games I wanted to play (with the exception of Halo Wars), so I may either re-up on Live to play Halo 3 some more or bust out the last gen games again. KOTOR on Xbox or FFX on PS2 seem to be the most likely candidates, with God of War being the dark horse.

So, in Red Faction, I was at this point in the game where you had to collect up supplies and people while the EDF were hitting the area with artillery strikes and marauders are attacking.  There were ten objectives.  Some of them involve telling people to run away from the artillery strikes, because I guess they're so motherfucking distinguished mentally-challenged fellowed they wouldn't know to do that unless I told them.  I'm on the ninth objective when a big MISSION FAILED banner splashes across the screen.  So now I have to drive all the way to the mission briefing, then drive all the way back to these ten objectives and go through this whole rigmarole again because the developers were too fucking stupid to put a checkpoint at least halfway through the mission.

No, wait, I don't have to do any of that.  Goddamn this game.  That's GTA IV levels of checkpoint bullshit.  If it weren't a Gamefly rental I would've snapped the disc in half.

I've picked up Timeshift again.  I thought I might be near the end but I think I'm only about a half to 2/3 way through - it's a pretty big game.

It's a lot of fun, varied, reasonably inventive and well-paced.  Shame it didn't get much recognition.

That's "Achievement Withdrawal Syndrome" -- I'm going through it right now as my main efforts are the endgames of Mercs 2, Hulk, and the terminally stingy Guitar Hero III.

Finished playing:






Awesome game! Great brainless FPS, sometimes with breathtaking scenery, oh yeah the graphics are top-notch in this game. So are the effects of explosions and the way the environment gets destroyed by gunshots and rocket launchers. You can break a lot in this game. It's also very nice to see the rocket that you just fired travel a long distance and finally explode with a muffled explosion sound. Great effect and very realistic.
The AI of the enemies is actually kinda good. Though it has some little errors.
The game also has a cool arsenal of weapons. AK47, M16, Rocket Launcher, P90, Magnum revolver, Uzi's, MP5, M203 grenade launcher, Sniper rifle, 2 types of shotguns and some more.
I like it that you get infinite ammo after finishing the game. Excellent idea, game developers needs to reward players more with nifty treats after having finished the game. Now I can totally demolish everything around me!


Downsides:

  • The game is too short, there are only 8 levels. However, the levels each take about approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes at minimum to complete. Some levels I finished in 2 hours.
  • Every time you reload your weapon, everything but your weapon on the screen turns blurry. Get's kinda annoying.
  • Your team-mates are distinguished mentally-challenged fellows most of the time.
  • Wannabe badass storyline with horrible voice acting. It's as if they tried to imitate MGS.

I don't have Black but I have played a friend's copy a bit - it's an amazing game and visually I think it could pass for a current generation title at a glance.  I hope they do a follow-up sometime.

The amazing e3 footage of the second game inspired me to actually play the first. Not sure why this game was the target of so much hate. I'm having a great time with it.

pretty much that

the reason I'm excited for AC2 is because they specifically mentioned that they will add variety to the game

AC is a awesome game if it clicks with you.  If it doesn't click, you'll just think it's dull.  There's doesn't seem to be much middle ground.

I'm in the middle ground!

Hell, I boot up the game sometimes just to run around and smack down lepers

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Wow, I hated the flags. I got all but one in Masayaf, and decided I would ignore all of them, forever.

I've been so addicted to Class of Heroes. The game really comes into its own post game. I keep finding new crazy loot and I've only discovered 26% of the games total items.
