Played about an hour or so, slow pace but in a very good way. So far very impressive

I feel like it's one of those games that may have a slow beginning to introduce you to the world, but it'll pick up as you get further into it.

Yeah I have that feeling too.

I'm stoked. I haven't played any video games since I finished Tomb Raider a few months ago.
The only game I've played since TR is Far Cry 3.

Did you like Tomb Raider? I thought it was a wel-made game with some great technical achievements, but it just didn't feel very "fun" to me.

I had a lot of fun with it. When it ended, I immediately wished there was a sequel.

Tomb Raider (not finished it yet but near the end) is no doubt a well crafted game and must be played by action/adventure fans BUT it never really grabs you like Uncharted did IMO.

I didn't care about a single character other than Lara and couldn't even remember their names. So the supposedly emotional and dramatic sacrifices and whatnot fell flat for me.

I guess I can see that. Every time Lara met up with the other characters, two minutes later they were gone and Lara was headed off by herself again. We didn't really get to know any of them very well.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

They were all stock characters, but I felt that was necessary to focus on Lara Croft in what was a survival/coming of age story. It wouldn't have worked as well if she had been part of an ensemble.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I picked up Sonic Unleashed for the Wii and played a bit this weekend. It's obviously nowhere near the quality of the Genesis games, but it's a pretty fun game. Even the night stages are okay. I'm really enjoying it.

really?

Damn, I've played the PS2 and PS3 versions and the night stages are universally derided by the fans and casual players. Must be something very different about the Wii version for them to come across as fun.

Yeah, there's some massive differences between the Wii version compared to the HD Consoles. The 360/PS3 versions are supposed to be more complete versions of the game, but also more tedious. The Wii is easier and lacking features, but has a much faster pace. A different final boss too.

Werehog levels:

The 360 version usually has a 15-25 minute level per continent. But just 1. You have many more combos at your disposal. It's easier to grab enemies. The grabbing punching combos add to some funny animations. The swinging mechanic feels more natural. The biggest flaw in both versions is the camera. The worst sin is it may turn on you while you are tightrope (skinny ledge) walking.

The Wii versions of the Werehog are usually easier. You can just run into barrels/crates to smash them and there is little to no tightrope walking. That's were the positives end.

Decided to give up on Dead Space 3. It's so dull to play it's like a chore rather than fun.
