So I just traded in some games and got this pile for fairly cheap. Just want your guys opinions on the quality of aforementioned titles and which I should dive into first while I finish off installing them all.

I forgot lost odyssey was 4 discs...

I know some people who absolutely love Alpha Protocol, but I just didn't have the patience for the (pardon the term) jankiness of it. Great writing, though. I can't speak for the other games.

#4 Posted by BeachThunder (12450 posts) -

Personally, I thought Alpha Protocol was pretty swell.

I'd say Alpha Protocol. That and Lost Odyssey are the only ones I care about, and if you've already played most of LO, might as well get something new.

#6 Posted by Canteu (2821 posts) -

Well I played LO when it came out, so it's been a while. I did everything but the last boss and I remember liking it a lot.

Go with either exept armored core I'd say.

Alpha Protocol would be the one that I would play first.

#9 Posted by Vortextk (421 posts) -

I have knights contract too. I'm a sucker for a certain type of game(even when I know the game itself is bad, poor or mediocre). Not to really say you should go for it first, but play it on easy, apparently, when you do. I only touched the beginning of it once.

#10 Posted by TobbRobb (4853 posts) -

@Canteu: I'd still argue for going with something completely new, especially since AP is shorter. But I like Lost Odyssey a lot, so go for it if you want to.

#11 Edited by Canteu (2821 posts) -

Damn it, Infinite Undiscovery won't install. Back to the store I go!

I'll never understand how people can get even a single scratch on a disk, let alone render it unreadable. Fucking peasants.

#12 Posted by Video_Game_King (36272 posts) -

Lost Odyssey, because I've actually played it.

#13 Posted by LevelUpAdrian (165 posts) -

Go with anything except for Armored Core. 
Because FUCK Armored Core. 
My money's on Lost Odyssey.

#14 Edited by Canteu (2821 posts) -

@LevelUpAdrian: I like AC :( In fact V is the only one I've not played.

@Canteu: without a doubt, go for Alpha Protocol - just remember to play it more like an RPG game.

#17 Edited by Canteu (2821 posts) -

@JCTango: I see the word "Obsidian" on the box. This makes me fully intend to go charisma and sneaking or some such nonsense.

This! Try Alpha Protocol. 
#20 Posted by FancySoapsMan (5818 posts) -

The only one I have any experience with is Alpha Protocol, and I think that game is shit.

So I'm basically no help here. ;3

#21 Posted by Canteu (2821 posts) -

@EricSmith: Eternal sonata and Enchanted Arms are both pretty good in terms of combat systems. You just have to get past the first 3 hours of Enchanted Arms though. Maybe mute it too.

#22 Posted by Ghost_Cat (1476 posts) -

Well Armor Core V has mechs, and mechs are like over-sized can openers of WHOOP ASS. Go pilot a mech.

#23 Posted by EvilKatarn (466 posts) -

Beat as many missions in ACV as you can without getting frustrated and then move on to Alpha Protocol I guess.

#24 Posted by gla55jAw (2698 posts) -

Alpha protocol then Lost Odyssey.

#25 Posted by MikkaQ (10344 posts) -

Well Alpha Protocol is the one game there that isn't terrible, so I'd go for that one.

#26 Posted by StarvingGamer (8560 posts) -

Robot action!

That is exactly what you should do.

#28 Posted by Fattony12000 (7587 posts) -

Finish Lost Odyssey first, that way you'll have one whole game less on your list of shame!

#29 Posted by Canteu (2821 posts) -

@Fattony12000: That's the main reason I bought it to be honest. I've beat all of it (including the arena boss) and my save was right in front of the last area door on the world map. I guess I can just mainline it this time since I've already seen it all.

I don't have the save anymore sadly.

#30 Posted by Yadilie (379 posts) -

@EricSmith:

Eat Lead is a terrible game that's fun.

Knight's Contract is an okay game with probably one of the worst sections in a video game ever, especailly on higher difficulties.

#31 Edited by charlie_victor_bravo (1048 posts) -

Alpha Protocol. Just stick with it for a while. It takes some time ti get to the good stuff.

#32 Edited by Canteu (2821 posts) -

@Yadilie: What does the "worst section in videogames" entail? This intrigues me, as this game is not all of sonic '06, so I kinda don't believe you.

@charlie_victor_bravo: I'm used to slogging through early sections of games to get to the good parts. 20 years of conditioning I suppose.

If they give you another copy, give it a chance. The story is painfully bad for the first half (maybe more), and only gets tolerable after that, but it had great dungeons and a decent combat system.

#34 Edited by Canteu (2821 posts) -

@SlashDance: I've already played it before and really enjoyed it. They've got another copy coming from another store in a few days.

I really liked the combat system, the characters aren't too bad and I enjoyed the bonus objectives on some missions, kind of a nice idea for an extra challenge if you want it.

#35 Posted by Yadilie (379 posts) -

@Canteu:

This isn't in the vein of just poorly made game with shitty programming it's just poorly thought out game mechanics. But without spoiling anything really, it's just you use the witch to kill things and the knight to weaken them. At one point it's just the Knight for a little bit and on the highest difficulty it takes fucking FOREVER to kill things. And you can't go forward until you kill things. But the Knight can't die. So it's just this long game of hacking and slashing and repeatedly ressurecting yourself.

Also those super fast QTEs in boss fight on highest difficulty. Ugh... uuuuuugh... that fucking final boss that I had to refight like 50 times because of that.

#36 Posted by Canteu (2821 posts) -

@Yadilie: That all sounds pretty hilarious. I have to play it on hard when I do because of you. You're a bad person and should feel bad!

#37 Posted by Yadilie (379 posts) -

@Canteu:

I know I'm a bad person. I platinumed the game after all. Sadly on a friends jailbroken PS3. Sooooo, somewhere down the line I'm going to have to rebuy the game. The game really isn't that bad and gets a lot of shit for no reason, in my opinion. And people who call it an escort game are just delirious and don't understand shit about the witch. It's like they played up until they met her and just quit, aka first 30 minutes.

#38 Posted by thebipsnbeeps (562 posts) -

I say Knights Contract because you have no idea what it is. I don't know either, but I'd try that game first to see if it's anything worth going on.

#39 Posted by Canteu (2821 posts) -

Well that's 8 out of 9 disks installed. To Alpha Protocol!

Thanks for the input people.

Ah, that's a big problem with my plan then!

#41 Posted by Canteu (2821 posts) -

@Fattony12000: To be fair, it would be a 5 year old save that I kept across 5 different 360's.

Although I do still have my ME1 save...but at least there's a reason for that one.

It's... long. and it's definitely a game. Give it a try sometime ya big jerk!

#43 Posted by Canteu (2821 posts) -

@EarlessShrimp: But I've already played all of it (except from the final boss)! You're a jerk! D:

#44 Posted by EarlessShrimp (1671 posts) -

@Canteu: What can I say? I'm a sadist! Actually when I saw AC5 on there, I realized I've been wanting to play that. I'm gonna really go with that and probably pick it up myself today.

Aww, sorry then! :P  
 
I can't stand AC.
#46 Posted by jozzy (2035 posts) -

I thought ACV was a lot of fun. Also really love Alpha Protocol and Lost Odyssey is not bad. Good haul!

#47 Posted by Roger778 (960 posts) -

Alpha Protocol, I've played that game maybe 3 or 4 times, and it's a great game. Just focus on the skills you want to learn and you will be okay. The Chain shot ability when you focus on Pistols is overpowered but awesome to use.

#48 Posted by Rebel_Scum (783 posts) -

I haven't heard of any of these games. My advice would be to keep shopping. ;)

#49 Posted by fuzzypumpkin (389 posts) -

Lost Odyssey is great. Those memories that you pick up and get stories for are AMAZING.

#50 Posted by Solh0und (1856 posts) -

Alpha Protocol. Seriously underrated game.
