I'm almost done with Crysis 3, but am stuck on the last boss the "Alpha Ceph". Damn, he's one tough Son a bitch (though a bit cheap IMHO). I really enjoyed Crysis 3 alot, and can't for the life of me understand why some reviewers have been so hard on Crysis 3. And the game isn't lacking in challenge like many others have said, and the A.I. actually seems to be more solid in this game (and not as dumb as people have made it out to be). Crytech really went nuts with the variety of weapons and attachments for the game, and I think it does help with the replay value. I think the one real flaw is that the game can get quite buggy, so hopefully Crytech will release a few more patches to iron them out.

The next game I plan on playing through is Red Orchestra 2. And I *HOPE* Tripwire sorts out the performance problems this time around! I had bought a DVD version of the game back at 2011, but the game was hampered with performance troubles. I knew I had a PC that was a bit dated, but even with the settings on "Medium", I was stuck with 30-40 frames. But much to my shock, people with high end PCs had trouble running the game with good & stable frames. So now that my brother and I upgraded our PC Gaming rig (and Tripwire released some patches), I'm giving RO2 another go. I'm downloading the game at the moment, but it's near completion. Ironically even though I bought the physical version, but after installing it from the DVD it only copied 22% of the game into my computer. The rest I ave to download online. Tripwire, what's the point of having a physical copy if I have to end up downloading the majority of the game online?!

If I still get performance issues or other wise can't get the game running properly, I think I'll play through Crysis 3 once more.

Little Busters! - finally.

At long last I've gotten round to playing this and I love it so far. It may be a good thing that I've put the anime on hold at episode 7, I just had the feeling it wasn't translating the grandeur of the game that well (guess I'll just watch it afterwards). Probably two years have passed since my last visual novel so my experience is even more enhanced. The character art, CGs and BGM are all incredibly pleasing to the senses.

Red Orchestra 2 runs great on the Primary Gaming PC, but......the A.I. in the Single Player is god awful. Well, at least for my own teammates. So out of frustration, I quit the game (and uninstalled). People online have said that the game's true strength is the Multiplayer and Single Player is awful. Unfortunate, since I'm starving for a good World War 2 game (specially one that takes place on the eastern front). I also gave Serious Sam 3 a go......and it just didn't grab me.

So next I tried out the long awaited Half-Life 2 mod "Black Mesa Source." Believe me, it's the closest we'll get to a new Half-Life game for years to come (my gut tells me that Valve will reveal something Half-Life related this year, though my gut has steered me wrong before....) so I gave it a playthrough. Unfortunately there was a part in the game that locked up and I had to end up doing a clean re-install of the mod. I'm thinking the lockup problem in that certain section could have been one of two things. It may have something to do with a Glock Mod done by "Doktor Haus". Or it may be because I played the Mod on a Different PC. With some Steam games, if you installed and play a game on one hardware, then move the same installed game onto a different PC it may lock up at some point in the game. My brother had this problem with the new Aliens vs Predator game, though he fixed it by "Re-authenticating" the game on the new PC. Of course, being a mod Black Mesa source didn't have that feature. I may re-install the Glock Mod another day and see if it still locks up.

If you're looking for a fairly large scale WW2 games or big maps, I can't say I know of much. But, if you're looking for WW2/older war games you can give BFBC2 Vietnam as well as Day of Defeat Source. I loved BFBC2 Vietnam remake, so fun using the flamethrower, but I too bad there are no jet maps with napalm . Day of Defeat Source, was fun too, but it was too small scaled for me.

On the side note, been madly addicted to Battlefield 3 (I WANT BF4 NAOOO! lolz) and just recently got back into Shogun 2 Total War. I LOVE playing Shogun 2 with Darth Mod and pumped up army sizes (roughly 500 units per slot army slot). My laptop can handle it quite well (some parts of the graphics are shot down to med/high instead of ultra); but it does still go slow when speeding up the game, but who cares, I'm one of those that sit there and watch my entire army fight the enemy on normal speed

Alternating between rebuilding a modification of a mod in Fallout: New Vegas, and playing (and getting eaten frequently in) Far Cry 3.

I'm currently playing F.E.A.R. 3, and since I now have a newly upgraded PC I
switched the graphics setting to "Very High" and switching on Anti-Aliasing (but turned off shadows, the game gets too dark with the shadows on). The game doesn't seem to make much use out of Direct X11, and based on the reading I've done online it seems that the only added graphical feature for the Direct X11 version of F.E.A.R. 3 is the Anti-Aliasing. That's it.

Well, it's to be expected I guess. Since 2007, many games that seem to utilize both Direct X9 and 10 or 11 seem to barely utilize either X10 or X11. Since 2011, some developers have worked around this by completely abandoning Direct X9 in favor of exclusively working on the Direct X10 or 11 version for the windows port. And admittingly, they've made better use out of Direct X10 & 11. But with the next generation consoles on their way, I think we'll see Direct X11 pushed even further.

PS3: Still working on getting 100% Trophies in Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty HD. Misread one of the trophies and thought I had to 1st Place all the VR Missions.... so I did it all the way up to Tuxedo Snake.... and then realized it only needed me to complete them, didn't matter the score.... sooooo... I'll probably work on the dogtags before I bother going back to VR again...

360: FINALLY got all the Achievements in Batman: Arkham City, including the Robin/Nightwing DLC... so I've gone back to an old guilty pleasure of mine... Brutal Legend. Just... Jack Black as the main character, the whole universe revolving around the music I grew up with, all the fantastic guest VA's like Tim Curry or Lemmy from Motörhead... the humor they sneak into cutscenes and almost everything they say.... oooooooh I just love it~

Vita: Only one trophy left in One Piece: Kaizoku Musou 2 before I've 100% it... I figured what it wanted was for me to beat the Main Story on Ultra Hard difficulty... but it wants both Main Log AND Partner Log... if I had known that, I would'a just done Parter Log on Ultra Hard to begin with.... soooooo... now I've got 58 more levels to play through on Ultra Hard.... guess it's a good chance to level up my Blackbeard~

PS3: FINALLY Platinum'd Rune Factory Oceans/Tides of Destiny. I thought the trophy for catching 2000 fish was going to be hard but turns out catching a cold a 100 times was harder. Moved onto trying to get the Platinum for THE iDOLM@STER2, ONEPIECE Kaizoku Musou, Tales of Graces F, and Neptune Mk.2. I've only got handful of trophies left for those so I figured I'd take care of those before I go and buy any new games.

PSP: Taking a break from Fate/EXTRA CCC. Cleared the game twice, the first run with Caster and the second with Saber. I'm gonna have to do another run with Saber since I got the alternate ending on that playthrough. Fortunately it'll be easy since I get to keep my level with a character I've already cleared the game with. Started my third run with Gilgamesh but I'm putting the game aside for now since I got my copy of 7th Dragon 2020-II.

PS3: STILL working on Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty HD, finished 100% Dogtags on Very Easy, Easy, and Normal.... now to get to the harder stuff.... though, now that I've got the Brown Wig/Stealth Camo, I SHOULD be completely fine.... however... I still need to remember to get back to those VR...

360: This.... may sound like a terrible thing to do... buuuut.... gone back to actually FINISH Duke Nukem Forever. Was looking back at it, and noticed easy achievements from it (besides that pinball one)... soooo... I'll be going through that in my spare time~

Vita: Finally Platinum'd One Piece: Kaizoku Musou 2, so now back to Persona 4 Golden for that damned Hardcore Risette Trophy.... last one too. On a side note, my girlfriend as been bugging me to play Black Rock Shooter: The Game, so I'll probably be borrowing her US PSN account to do a playthrough of it. Not really a fan of the series, but who knows... the game might be good~

PC: I'm going back and revisiting old classics, like Crysis, Battlefield Bad Company 2, and Portal 2 in 1080p, ultra-settings glory. I also pre-ordered Metro: Last Light and will be playing that once it unlocks.

Downloaded Ragnarok Online 2 off steam. It's free to play. Quite unexpected considering RO wasn't, then again, that was many years back. I totally forgot about RO2 until just recently when I saw the add on steam. Playing on channel 2 as a Magician.

Graphics are quite good/better than expected but it looks like it'll be a grind of an mmo just like any other but it's nice to try an MMO after many months of any activity with any MMO.

Don't Starve - This game is just so frustrating. I was on a roll and went through winter for 45 days until a GODDAAMDMIT RED HOUND set my whole place on fire. I just gave up and suicided. This game requires some serious perseverance. Lord, screw this game. Every time you die you know it is your fault and you learn something new but my god, I have never played anything so hectic and frustrating.

Link for anyone interested.

I'm currently playing Megaman Legends 2 on an emulator. I played one a few days ago and beat that (Truly a fun game!). I'm near the end of the game and enjoying every moment of it.

I hope we'll get Legends 3 whenever a certain company gets off their ass and starts making it again. But that isn't the time or the thread.

Some people liked it. The game lacked many things that prevented it from being a proper Devil May Cry game (no lock on being one of them). If you're willing to give change a chance then go for it. That's just me though, you might enjoy it, but I didn't.

I had the bright idea of picking up Saya no Uta to see what it was all about. I knew who wrote but had no idea how insanely messed up it was. It took me about four tries before I even managed to finish the opening scene let alone get to the first ending. Now I see how the butcher got his nickname, there's now way in hell the story is going to end up even remotely well. You need to be missing something in your mind to manage this kind of disturbing. I think that being an H game makes it even worse. It's just wrong... all kinds of wrong!

School Days was at least entertaining watching everything go wrong and Bible Black was escapist entertainment for that sadistic side everyone surely has a bit but this is just wrong... I think this is the first time I might agree with using laws to prevent minors from buying a game. I'm not even sure if being 18 years old is old enough for this. It's sick... very sick...
