Aliens Colonial Marines - Possibly the worst game I've played all year. Thanks Gearbox for wasting a golden opportunity.

I ordered mine from Amazon and it arrived this morning, To be fair it has its moments and there are points where you think hmm this could actually get good but then your brought back to reality when one of your team mates get stuck or a lucker grabs you through a wall.

It looks to me like they've used the duke nukem forever engine and its horribly dated looking and absent of any sort of physics engine meaning aside from some ragdoll on the aliens when you kill them everything else is pretty static, it certainly doesn't look anything like those shiney screen shots we seen last year.

That said I probably would be just as disappointed with Deadspace 3 (which was my other planned purchase) as it seems to be getting a lot of mixed reviews...

I dunno, I haven't played Dead Space 3 yet but I've watched my brother play it and it seems pretty good so far, even with the inclusion of regular human enemies.

Ah I see. Good to know, I think I'll stick to NS2 haha even it too is a bit "static."

I don't see you guys can get through the DS series, I couldn't even handle the first one lolz. I remember starting the first part of it and walking through a shower area and BAM, the shower turns on. I quit and uninstalled after that (I've never played a horror game before so I went all out playing at midnight with loud speakers and a pitch black room with only my PC lighting up)

I'm not much for horror games either but I gave Dead Space a chance when I had nothing else to do. It was a lot more fun than I thought it would be. Now I just need to play the latest one when my brother gets done with it. Bloody game is a LOT longer than Dead Space 1 and 2.

Persona 3 Fes - The Answer scenario. Just finished The Journey scenario a few hours ago.

Now I need to find Persona 4 and play it.

Do it. Mechanics-wise Persona 4 is amazing and the story, while not as high stakes feeling as it's predecessors, is still very good and (imho) better told overall. That reminds me that The Golden is coming out this month here in Europe, I should pre order it :-)


As for me I've been playing Tales of Vesperia still. How many fake endings can Namco put into a game? (Yhep, clearly my first tales game)

Oh...I heard about that game from way back in 2008? I think and have been really excited for it and now I'm dissapointed that it's a failure. I guess that's to be expected.

Since I beat Assassin's Creed 3 about 10 days ago I've been kinda bored, so I've been dabbling with Portal 2 community maps. However, just tonight, I downloaded a 64-bit version of Snes9x and started to play Sailor Moon: Another Story. Hey, don't judge; it's a good game!

Virtual On

Yes, the first one. It was recently added to the JP PSN for 800yen with added online play and trophie set, which you can mostly complete by playing through arcade mode once. (and no, there's no Platinum)

I really missed playing the series because if I remember correctly nothing new has been on any of the SONY consoles since Marz. Personally I missed the designs of the classic mechs, I really didn't like the new designs with all those "spots" all over the mechs.

...but who am I to say anything on mech designs by the master Katoki Hajime right?

F-Zero (SNES / Wii U Virtual Console)

I first played this on the Wii's Virtual Console a few years ago, and bought this version for the princely sum of 30 cents. Playing it now... well, it brings back bad memories of White Land II and Death Wind II. Nonetheless, it was a great game that really gave you that sense of speed.

Also finished Spyro 2 to 100% completion with all 16 skill points.

Virtue's Last Reward for the PS Vita. Really cool stuff so far. I'm already immersed in the story.

Finished Virtual On on one play through, I forgot how overpowered Raiden's laser was. Not to mention you can get all game trophies on one play through too

Gone back to playing Disgaea 3(PS3) while I'm waiting on more games to be released next month.

Basically hit the "so...what now?" point in the game as I've finally beaten Baal, I can get my characters to lvl.9999 on the Ordeal map #4 in no time, and I've acquired most of the rank 40 weapons, etc. I'm addicted enough to accomplish that but not enough of a Disgaea junkie to attempt to go and make the "ultimate" character. Series players know what I'm talking about.

I might actually go and get Disgaea 4 now, I can wait on Disgaea Dimension. Also thinking about getting back into Pokemon but I'm fairly behind, soon to be three titles behind. Currently on Soul Silver. Thinking about getting Black and Black 2 and gonna wait to see how X and Y turn out. (plus I still need to get a 3DS)

PS3: Working on my S Rank Revengeance playthrough in Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, it's actually going extremely well so far. S Ranked all the way through the first... 4-5 levels, got stuck at the beginning of the current level... it's gonna take some work. Other than that... got the Codec trophy to earn, and I've Platinumed (pun~) it~

360: Got back into The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, it seems to be a game that I can't... play through all in one go. I keep getting off of it to play something else, then come back to it when I'm good and bored with my 360.... anway, just finishing any quests I have on me at the moment before I head out for more.

3DS: STILL working on Fire Emblem: Awakening... unfortunately, my save file has been erased twice now.... both very stupid reasons... so I won't go into it. Decided to go in as a FeMC this time, see how that goes. About.... Chapter 6-7 right now, been playing alot of that DLC map "EXPonential Growth" just to keep my characters all leveled out the same for now... also good for leveling the good for nothing Donnel for now~

DS: Got my DSi XL repaired, so now I can once again enjoy my DS games again. Started up on Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey again.... and this time I'm surprisingly holding on instead of losing all interest in it afew hours in. Not too far into it right now... so can't really say anything here~

Vita: Getting ready to get back into Persona 4 Golden to I can finally get that Platinum in it. All that's really left for me is the "Legend of Inaba" and "Hardcore Risette Fan" trophies.... which are going to require two seperate playthroughs.... but shouldn't be too hard~

For the Month of March I've dedicated it to 'Old School' games, meaning that I'm playing some of my favorite shooters I played the hell out of back at the 90s. I'm starting out with Doom and am up to the 4th Episode "Thy flesh consumed", and after that the original Heretic (Shadows of the Serpent Riders version, to be specific). Then after that maybe the first Quake.

It's a bit of a tradition I like to do every March, put aside all these modern FPS games and go through the classics I grew up with. These games are still surprisingly fun even in this day and age, which is why I don't pay any attention to those that say "Oh, these old games really don't age well." Though they do remind me that I am getting old.

i play some more Dynasty Warrior 7 Empire today. started Chaos mode with all
the extra bonus points to buy the weapons carry over and mounts.

this is my first time playing it on Chaos and, WOW.....those peons just rape me to oblivion with
just 5 hits. and those archers do A LOT of damage. and then the
officer OHKO me with their musou....lol. it was so dang hard to even take over
a base.

i have to resort to playing crossbow and shoot from a far. so far that works very well
and is the only way for me to stay alive. meleeing is suicidal.

it's not going to stop me from keep on trying. it's VERY hard...but at the same
time it's very fun to survive the stage and win. very satisfying.
