Re: What games are you playing currently?

My first Fallout 3 playthrough, I clocked up around 95 hours of play, and that was without any of the DLC installed. My second playthrough, with all the DLC installed is still running, and at last save was about 160 hours. I still have Mothership Zeta and Operation: Anchorage to finish, plus a bunch of unmarked quests and undiscovered locations to complete.

My wee brother sent me up his copy of Red Dead Redemption, so I've been playing that non-stop in my free time over the last few days!
Awesome, isn't i?

I've just finished the Undead Nightmare DLC story missions. Now I'm going back to finish the undead challenges and missing persons to get 100% completion.

Damn Chupacabra won't show up!

Creed 2 is a very impressive game though it feels like seemed to have less assassinations than the first one.
DNA Sequence 13 had plenty. Yeah, overall 2 seemed to have fewer, but more build up to the assassinations you do perform. Or maybe I'm misremembering the first game. Watching some clips of the first game at the start of AC Brotherhood, I realize there's a heck of a lot of stuff storywise I can't remember at all. I still need to collect flags and some other stuff for achievements. I might have to play it through here soon.

Anyway, I finished 2 tonight. Overall, it's an excellent game. The ending wasn't quite as WTF worthy as I had heard, but then there are some hints throughout the game (like the Truth video sequences). This is one of those few games where I don't mind watching cutscenes because of how good the story is, and how enjoyable the characters are.

The DLC was mostly a disappointment. The Battle of Forli was fun, but way too short. Bonfire of the Vanities was mostly boring. Though, it did force me to get more creative with how I did the assassinations. I've been mostly lazy with those when playing the rest of AC2.

Neither chapter really added anything to the game that was extremely important. And the story for both was far less interesting than what was going on in the other chapters. Especially with Sequence 13 being so unrelated to the main story.

Now onto Brotherhood.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

Second playthrough after a 1 1/2 year break.

It's even more fun than the first time around, because I'm only now slowly getting over the fact that Oblivion isn't Morrowind - a fact that I kind of unfairly held against the game at first

"But it's not Morrowind! " isn't a very good reason not to like a game, I can see that now

Seriously though, after playing quite a bit of Diablo 2 and Mass Effect 2 recently, I realize now how I've been missing a more hardcore approach and more hardcore RPG mechanics. Oblivion fits that bill quite nicely.

I loved mothership zeta, i would love to see a Fallout set in space with spaceships, aliens, alien planets and weapons....would be fun...well for me anyway.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

AssCBro is a lot more fun now that I have the handle of the controls. Taking out the Borgia Captains is a lot less frustrating now. Hell even if I'm surrounded by ten bad guys I can still come out okay!

^^^The first game had this, surrounded by lots of enemies at once, it made you learn the combos, and i hate games with combo that require anything more than two buttons to press, but the first game got it spot on.

Clocked up around 40 hours so far (Enclave just invaded) but got to do all the DLC still and I always do any side quests I find though am all out at the moment. I wish Fallout 3 had a easier system to find side quests its a little too random at times.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I've been playing Valkyria Chronicles II (PSP) like a madwoman. Really like it, very fun. Also playing Star Wars The Force Unleased II (360) That's been all right, though the repetitiveness gets tiresome after a while.

If you really want to lose the random factor, use the Fallout wiki site, The Vault. It's a pretty comprehensive database of everything in the Fallout games.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I'm up to the 8th memory on AssCBro and it's pretty fun now, aside from those infuriating missions were you can't be detected or you're chasing someone. Ugh. But it's so great when you've got a bunch of followers and you're slowly leveling them up. It's surprisingly fun to just assign kills rather than doing them yourself!
