Well, so far, I suck at riding horses.

You'll get the hang of it. I wasn't all that great myself the first hour or so, and you should have seen how bad I was at wrangling a horse during a mandatory story mission. Later on, I was making decent money by breaking in horses as I traveled.

On the plus side, if you accidentally try going over a cliff, in most cases your horse will notice before you do and stop you.

I just can't seem to get my horse to run consistently. I hit X like it says, but half the time my horse just won't do anything.

I finally got around to finishing C&C Red Alert: The Aftermath, so now it's on to C&C 2: Tiberian Sun.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I didn't like Far Cry 2. Took way too long to travel to places, the constantly respawning bad guys made travel even more ridiculous... and then the game froze 2/3 of the way through because of a bug and became unplayable.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I actually beat it my first time through with no bug issues. On my second time through It got real buggy around 85 percent. My saves wouldn't load and I had to go way back to get a non corrupted file to continue. It worked and I eventually got all but one of the campaign achievements completed. Currently on my third play through.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Since I'm gonna buy God of War 1 first I started playing Kingdom Hearts 2. Basically got through the opening 30 minute cut-scene/tutorial then quit. Hopefully I enjoy it more than the first one which I put away after a couple hours.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Stopped at 50% completion in Lord of the Rings: The Third Age....

It's one thing to be challenging, but it seems like things get repetitive...and no time is given for the player to 'relax'...(A big nitpick is: After you get done battling a powerful foe, you have to fight another powerful with depleted sources).

Too, I'm finding out that as I'm getting get bored, I am noticing things about stock footage from the films being used, the graphics, the story; obviously, the gameplay...

I was comparing this LOTR game to Silent Hill, as--even though they are different types of games--SH has a certain 'dark aura' about it that keeps the player in the dark as to what is going on, literally and figuratively; too, SH is challenging without being ridiculous. Of course, the graphics and sounds are menacing and help the creepy atmosphere.

Moving on to another game...which is another RPG with a purpose: Final Fantasy VII

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Ugh, I'm seriously not enjoying Kingdom Hearts 2. What is the point of this 3-4 hour "prologue" with an entirely different character, premise, and setting from the actual storyline? Not to mention how confusing the story is, and I read the wiki synopses of the previous games. And I don't like the control scheme. All I wanna do is fight in Disney movie themed worlds, dammit...

I'm playing Halo Reach, of course. I'm currently working on the campaign. Will dive into MP and Firefight when I'm done with that.

My favourite expansion of the lot.

I got all of them and enjoyed all of them, but that one is just all kinds of cool. And the rifle you get has become my favourite weapon.
