Re: What games are you playing currently?

I'm playing Assassin's Creed II, as part of the Ezio Trilogy collection. I bought the first AC way back when it first came out but never really got into it, yet I've still been curious about the games ever since. A friend recommended I buy this set, and so far I'm enjoying AC2 a lot.

The first AC is boring. AC2 is a vast improvement. The games get a little redundant if you play them in succession, but the Ezio trilogy has a great story.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I have a large enough backlog that I expect to play at least one game in between the Ezio installments, precisely to avoid that problem.

I really need to stop buying games until I actually have time to follow through and play them...

I actually never played the first AC. I got AC2 without knowing anything about it, and it's one of my favorite games, and still the best AC game.

Currently watching the spouse continuing her Mass Effect 2 save in ME3. Much like DA2, I've really grown to like ME3, especially including all the DLC and the reworked ending.

I was playing Assassins Creed Black Flag, but got stuck on a puzzle and I hate complicated puzzles so I traded it in for Watchdogs and Wolfenstein.

Welp! I'm addicted to playing Tomodachi Life!

Been having fun with it's quirky sense of humor and seeing the characters develop their own relationships with one another.

Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project on my Xbox360.

I'm digging this one. I love the retro vibe. Duke returning to his side-scrolling roots!

The overall quality of this game is so much better than Duke Nukem Forever its almost unbelievable.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Played a little bit of the Destiny alpha on PS4. Didn't care for it very much. Knocked out DuckTales Remastered on PC on Hard... now I'm pondering if I want to go for the clean sweep on achievements. It has the locked Extreme difficulty, and then it had some stuff that you can only do on the easier difficulty levels. Also one playthrough isn't enough to unlock all the artbook stuff, which is kind of annoying. But it isn't a particularly long game, so I'm leaning towards going for 100% completion.

Played some BF Hardline beta on PS4 and PC as well. PS4 version performs pretty badly, PC version performs pretty well. Feels a little too much like Battlefield, as in the cops and robbers theme feels a bit like window dressing. A competitive version of PayDay it really ain't.

And of course still playing some Titanfall because well, Titanfall is the best.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Been pretty heavily revisiting Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.
Started over with a pure mage. (No battlemage, or custom class with mage mixed in....pure mage.) What an underrated class. Sometimes I feel like a mystic Terminator walking into some caves or Ayleid ruins, casting down ruin on hapless goblins, necromancers, rogue mages and bandits. Better yet, sometimes I feel like Emperor Palpatine as I cast lightning attacks at my foes, citing lines like: "Young fools, only now, at the end do you understand!" or, "You have paid the price for your lack of vision!" or "Powwwwwerrrrrrr! Unnnnliiimitteeedddddd ppooowwwweeerrrrrrrrrr!" or "Go for Papa Palpatine!" or, "What the hell's an Aluminum Falcon?!" (oops...sorry....got silly there, dinnit?)

Sometimes, to grind up levels and skills, I would do things like running around, setting my character's self on fire to grind up my destruction spell casting, and subsequently self-healing to grind up my restoration skillz.

I also like to give my made-spells and enchanted items funny names...

One of my characters has a bow and arrow that causes enemy humans to Frenzy, and start attacking each other if they are close enough....I called it: "Who Farted In the Chapel?"

For my mage, I have the same effect, but this time, as a spell that can affect up to level 25 human enemies in a 100 ft area of effect. I called the spell: "Hey! Who Smellteth, Dealteth!" (Making rogue mages and bandits fight each other never gets old...not to mention it slims down the odds a bit. )

I have a charm spell that can make folks in a 10ft AOE have 100 percent affinity towards me: name-- "Kumbaya, m'Lord! Kumbayaaaa!"

Oblivion is such a fun game to revisit, and once I've finished it, it's on to Skyrim again.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Started playing Far Cry 3 last night. So far I have no idea how I feel about it. I was hesitant because I don't usually like first-person shooters, but I had heard good things from a lot of different people.

First impressions: it's just a first-person version of Assassin's Creed...with guns. I guess this makes sense since it was made by Ubisoft, but the similarities are glaring. I'll play it for a little while and see how I feel, but right now I'm not sold on it.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Battlefield 4. Only to find the campaign is missing it's ending because they rushed the game out, as well as all the other bugs it caused.

And according to the EA website, I have to wait until "summer" this year when Expansion pack 5 will have the completed ending to the game, which I have to buy.

What. The absolute. Fuck.

What the hell is going on with EA. Are they literally so busy wriggling around naked on customers money they actually can't be fucking bothered to finish a game and *put the damn ending on it* that they make you buy it, paying half as much as the game itself again?

Jesus.

Think I'm about 30% complete on Infamous: Second Son. Enjoying it so far but it's becoming quite samey, I assume something changes it up soon.
