Much fun. Kind of like a multi-player choose your own adventure book.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I just finished Crysis 2 again in anticipation of Crysis 3 coming out. Played Crysis again and Crysis Warhead for the first time before that. Crysis 2 didn't seem so bad back when it first came out. But it had been years since I had played the first Crysis.

Coming off of other corridor shooters, the amount of choices in how you approached each objective was like returning to my old school favorites. Playing it again immediately after finishing Crysis again, and then Warhead, it feels like one of those other corridor shooters with some nifty powers. Still a fun game, but nowhere near as much so as the first one. There needs to be a much bigger sandbox to play in. I'm hoping 3 will be more open, but expecting it not to be since it will also be released on consoles.

Crysis still looks great after 5 years. Crysis 2 looks pretty good with mods, but vanilla is rather meh, even with the DX11 patch.

I've also been working my way through Far Cry 3. The story is fairly dumb, but the rest of the game has been quite good. Most of the systems work pretty well, like the skinning, which is actually useful to your character, and the towers to clear the map. I've been having a blast doing a lot of the side missions, like hunting tigers with a bow, and taking enemy hideouts.

I'm still deciding what to play next. I was hoping the Crysis playthroughs would take a bit longer. Maybe Rage or Doom 3? I'm in a shooter mood lately.

Dead Space 3 when I'm on my own, and some Borderlands 2 with mates when we get a chance

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Fuck it. I have 20 minutes left on Dead Space 3 and I don't fucking care. I just died 20 to 30 times at the exact same point and I am playing on the CASUAL difficulty setting. I'm screaming at my tv in frustration. I keep insa-dying for no goddamn reason. On the casual setting. I'll just watch the damn video walkthrough to see the ending.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Ouch! Where? If the room with the flames. Run as soon as you get control. I had the same problem and had to watch a walkthrough. Though I'm not much further after that when I stopped.

Calm down there, dude. It's just a game.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I'm right at the end where you're running through the collapsing wreckage. I keep restarting at the point where you get attacked by three scorpions. Then you go into a larger room and there's two tentacles. When you kill one it spawns one of those big boss monsters. Killing him is supposed to open the door. I've managed to kill him about half the time, but then the door doesn't open, and then I just insta-die.

Either a) there is a timer on this level and if you stay in one place too long you just die for no reason, b) even on the casual setting, the scorpion can insta-kill you with its tail (if it's behind me and I don't realize it, maybe?), or c) the game is glitching.

The game glitched one time before on me and I had to restart from the save. But I've restarted it 20 times, including the next day, and it keeps happening. Game are supposed to be fun, dammit

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Finished Dead Space 3 yesterday.

Mr Light, If you mean collapsing as in



then yes, there is a timer. I had a similar moment, and on the respawn turned around and saw a giant churning maelstrom coming for me.

It was at that point I decided to run. Get to that fight as quickly as possible. Hit any enemies between there with stasis and just power past them. The occasional backwards walking to take out legs helped too. You're finally free of the maelstrom when you see a bench.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Yeah I watched the video walk through after I sold the game and it looked like I could have just run forward past them maybe? I kept waiting for a door to open, not realizing there was a place to walk forward right next to it. Oh well.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Currently playing Ni No Kuni and XCOM.

I think these are perfect games to be playing at the same time. Fun kiddy JRPG combat, dark heavy strategy combat.

Ni No Kuni probably has the best world map ever made, and more interesting puzzles than most recent games. The story reminds me of animes like My Neighbor Totoro. It takes way too long for the actual gameplay to start, 45 mins before the first battle, but once it gets started it delivers on promise.

XCOM gets everything right that most grid based strategy RPGs get wrong. Protection battle? You get to control the defenseless civilian instead of having to rely on terrible AI. Reaction shots, suppression fire, highly probability based combat. Injuries that put a soldier out of commission for a few days.

I still want to finish Growlanser IV and Last Story, about 1/2 way through each.

I finished Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time yesterday. I might start Ni No Kuni next or just wait for Tomb Raider.

I finally finished Far Cry 3 today, and I think I may plow through Sir Hammerlock's Big Game Hunt during the next week while waiting for the new Tomb Raider.

^ You know, I got the season pass for the Borderlands 2 DLC, but for some reason I have no desire to play it. Ok, I finished Captain's Scarlett's DLC, but that's it.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

^ I got it too. I found Pirate's Booty pretty boring, and the only good thing about Mr. Torgue's Campaign of Carnage was Mr. Torgue himself, who I thought was hilarious. But, all in all, I thought all three DLCs have been boring. The ONLY reason I'm going to play Hammerlock is to get it over with, not because I'm excited to play it. I think Gearbox really screwed us over on these DLCs (it is also my first time purchasing a season pass, so that's a mistake I'll never make again).
