Yeah, I was definitely expecting it to look better given how hyped up it was. Almost every game that I've played on my PS3 has better-looking graphics than Skyrim. The combat also feels really clumsy. Ignoring that it uses controls that I am totally not used to (R1 and L1 for combat feels weird to me), I never actually feel like I'm hitting anything. My arms just flail around and eventually the bad guy dies.
Don't judge Skyrim based on the PS3 port. The people hyping it up are playing it on PC.

Fair enough, I suppose. I've never really been much of a PC gamer.

I don't know...I'm just very underwhelmed so far.

On the other hand, I beat Need for Speed Most Wanted. Beat down the number one car (without crashing, which for me is...wow) and claimed the most wanted spot.

So did a few victory laps in the V12 Vantage, damn Fair Haven looks amazing. *That* is what an open world should look like on the PS3.

It even sync's to local weather stations if you're online while playing, sync'ing weather patterns.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Since I'm temporarily on an old XP machine, found my boot disks for Lionhead's "The Movies" and its expansion pack, where you're running a movie studio. I'm thinking of trying to adapt "The Galileo Seven" once the tech advancements are high enough for shuttlecraft props. I already have a bridge set unlocked that resembles a Star Trek bridge. I usually run it in sandbox mode, but there's still too much micromanagement for my tastes.

The recently released Age of Wonders III has caught my eye, but I don't want to pay $40 for a game in a franchise that I've never played before. So I bought the first Age of Wonders on GOG for $2.99.
Age of Wonders sucks. On the bright side, I forgot that I had bought X-Com: Enemy Unknown a few months ago and never played it. Now that's a TBS game done right.

I picked up the just released Kirby: Triple Deluxe and Mario Golf: World Tour for the 3DS tonight. I took Monday off at work, so I'll have plenty of time to play these awesome games this weekend.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I've been playing a lot of Project Gotham Racing (the first one) recently. It's easily one of my favorite racing games, the kudos system really gives it that "I can do better this time" flavor (constantly trying to better my previous high score). I know other games have taken that concept and improved on it, but I think PGR has got a nice risk/reward balance.

Holy crap, The Last of Us is amazing!

Tried a little more Skyrim and to be honest, going to sell it. Damned if I can enjoy this "award winning" thing. This is popular? really?

I'm right there with you. I don't think I've ever been more bored with a game.

It would be ok if dozens of NPC's weren't trying to kill me for just walking to their town all the fucking time. I can't play more than five minutes a time without being ambushed or killed, I'm on level 4 or something.

The landscape is looking more and more 2002-esque for quality and programming, the controls are too frustrating and a lot of the game is in silence broken only by being jumped by glitched wolves.

Sod it, bargin bin it is.

Re: What games are you playing currently?
