I started playing Dishonored on Saturday and I'm really enjoying it.

Can you put up SW or Trek vinyls on any of the cars in the NFS franchise?



Cade Skywalker would look awesome on my car, so would the newest Enterprise or the Kelvin.
I honestly don't know if any of the NFS games allow for custom art. Though I'm sure you could mod one of the games on PC.

I played the last episode of The Walking Dead last night. And I'm still playing Dishonored.

Yeah, I picked that game up too about a month ago. If felt so strange buying a game for the PSP; I had almost forgotten that I owned the thing.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Black Ops 2 - I don't say this lightly, and I hate to say it at all as I loved the original BlOps - but BlOps2 is probably the worst FPS I've ever had the misfortune of playing.

I honestly can't understand how they've managed to make a game not only worse than MW3, but THIS much worse.

After MW3 I seriously contemplated NOT getting it, but caved based on the strength of the original BlOps game. Sadly, this is nothing like that, and far more like the other Treyarch games, simply dreadful.

Spawning - awful. I've lost count of the number of times where I've spawned next to exploding cars, into the middle of airstrikes, into direct enemy fire. There's no spawn protection whatsoever.

Head-glitching - How is this still in the game? A constant criticism of MW3, and it's STILL there in BlOps2 - do you NOT listen to feedback at all? Worse still, when I manage to hit them in the head (it must be the head as it's the only part of them showing), I get multiple hit markers! WTF?! How are you NOT dead?

Quickscoping - Another constant complaint. How do Treyarch respond? By making it even easier to do. Genius.

Maps - They're all near enough the same size, where's the variety? No large maps, the only tiny map is a revamped BlOps1 map.

Lag comp - Yet another complaint about MW3, and if anything it's now worse. Playing the game on a fibre connection - might as well not even bother. See opponent first, fire first, dead first. Absolute b0ll0cks.

Hit detection - You can see how poor this is in the killcams. If you hipfire, close misses randomly register as hits. The worst one I saw though was someone's final kill killcam, where the bullet actually hit the rifle butt of his secondary weapon that was on his back. Somehow, hitting that killed him. Seriously you couldn't make this sh*t up.

I'm now back on BlOps1.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I finished Uncharted Golden Abyss a while back. Really fun! The controls were a little hard to get used to at first, but as, I progressed I got used to them and ended up loving the game.

Others I'm playing:
Assassin's Creed III
Assassin's Creed III: Liberation
Spec Ops: The Line
Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I become a member of a site where I can rent video games after my experience with Halo 4.

The first game I played was the latest Black Ops. The levels are short, and barely register. The strike force mission I played - defend a site in India - was an abject failure. I like the graphics, but if I can't play a game successfully because of design flaws, than the graphics aren't really that important, are they? I, also, didn't like the feeling that I was being railroaded into decisions and actions I would consider lacking in common sense and that exemplify why my character is a prime candidate for the Darwin award. For instance, what idiot would run a horse at full speed into the path of a tank?

I have lined up XCOM, Far Cry 3, and the complete Walking Dead video game. These games are highly rated, and there does seem to be some freedom given to the player to decide how they will play.

I'm playing through Halo: Combat Evolved again.

I also ordered a copy of Batman: Arkham City (Game of the Year Edition).

I finished Dishonored earlier today. Now I'm deciding whether or not to go for the platinum trophy.

Far Cry 2 in preparation for Far Cry 3. Only, knowing what happens from having played it before, this time I'm brutally murdering all my buddies in cold blood. I feel a little bad about the three girls in it, mind you...

Aren't the Growlanser games great? It's like if Baldur's Gate were a JRPG. I don't know why games have moved in the direction of controlling one character and having any other characters be AI controlled, but nothing is more satisfying in RPGs than controlling your full party strategy. That's what RPGs are about IMO. Different characters, all with different roles in battle, all of them under your full control.

Assassin's Creed is a little disappointing, but a good game. So far doing way too much escorting and far too little assassinating. And they took far too much from Arkham City brawling, combat is feeling far less natural.
