Just finished AC Revelations, so I think it'll be LA Noire next

Demon's Souls. I bought my PS3 almost entirely for this game and its sequel, Dark Souls. I am not disappointed.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I finally got back to Kingdom of Loathing recently. Would anyone be interested in joining the TBBS clan over there? It's free, and we have booze. We could use more members.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I'm quite slowly progressing through GTA5... for some reason I'm just not loving the game. I had way more fun playing Saints Row IV.

And I'm waiting for Beyond: Two Souls to be released.

I departed the TBBS clan last year but occasionally visit the place as I'm still whitelisted. I don't know how long you'd been away but there have been many changes in the game including a new permanent clan dungeon for very high level players. Also, right now each class is in the process of being revamped with new skills (now two to learn per level) starting with the SC's last month.

Do you know if they've revamped Saucerors yet? I'm slowly catching up.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Not yet - only Seal Clubbers have had the revamp so far. It's involved consolidation of old redundant skills, the return of one old skill (lunge smack) and introducing many new ones including a Fury ability that is unique to that class, and some low powered newbie friendly skills. The general trend is to have more class exclusive abilities. The rest will probably follow one by one over the next few months.

Oh, and The Sea is finally complete! Well, I think it is - I'm still somewhat in denial about the rather terrifying ending...

From what i've heard it is an amazing cinematic game but the game aspect is quite rudimentary, i.e. there is not much to really "game" in this product.

I don't know i want to pay 60+ bucks for a movie where i can at times decide what scene will be played next. Might be fun for a while to try out different outcomes but overall i don't really like games that limit me like that (same problem i have currently with Remember Me.. the world looks so cool to explore but there is really only one way you can walk to get ahead in the game, you can't deviate at all).

^ I enjoyed Remember Me... yeah there's plenty of room for improvement, but I still had fun playing it.

As for B:2S... I liked the demo and I liked Heavy Rain (plus all the other Quantim Dream games) so I'm getting it right away. The European release is on Friday which is when I should get my copy.

From what I understand the game will be the same whether you make any input at all which sounds odd. I guess it's whether the story experience is worth it. I've played some interesting indie games that were more art pieces than "game" so I don't want to judge it too harshly but those don't usually run $60 either.

OT, anyone see the NFSW images from the debug version of the game? http://kotaku.com/nsfw-players-uncov...vid-1443968188 With it being a likeness of Ellen Page it just makes it extra awkward.

That's not true. It's a lot like The Walking Dead, in terms of structure - you'll follow the same basic story arc no matter what, but your choices (and how successful you are at some of the QTEs) will affect the details.

I don't regret paying $60 for it; I'd say my first playthrough was probably 10-12 hours, so I got decent value for money But I can see how it wouldn't be some peoples' cup of tea.

Anybody else pick up Skylanders: Swap Force today? Or am I alone in having a $400 hole in my wallet?

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Mostly XCOM and Tales of Xillia.

I also recently started Super Luigi U. People who say it's as hard as Lost Levels are lying, it may be harder than you expect from Mario but nothing compared to that. Decent enough game but level designs are boring as hell, which is par for the course for new 2d Mario.

I've pretty much been playing Galactic Civilizations II every week since getting it in 2006. Anything I've gotten since then is already uninstalled.
