Still got two zones to experience in WoW, before I'll try my hand at some heroics and those *challenges*. I also just started Binary Domain. I'm enjoying it quite a bit. I think I'll play some more Mark of the Ninja later. I'm also playing fair bit of Battlefield 3 on a semi-daily basis. Mostly Aftermath & Endgame & Armored Kill - usually Conquest Large with 64 players.

Once I'm done with Binary Domain and Mark of the Ninja, I'll grab me a copy of Dragon's Dogma Dark Arisen. Been pushing that along for over a year now, it's high time I show my support.

Nothing really. Outside of a couple games every time I fire something up I play it for 30-60 min and then turn it off and never go back to it. Over the last few years I just can't seem to get into playing a game for the sake of playing it all that often anymore. No matter how much time I take away to watch movies/tv or read comics I just can't get motivated to fire up a game and play it for any extended period of time. It always just feels like this huge ordeal that's never worth the time commitment or effort. Even games that I will watch trailers for and think that it looks like fun can't get me motivated. I will just sit there hovering over the icon in Steam or the box on the shelf and never go fire it up.

All that said, I finally got around to starting Valkyria Chronicles a few days ago and enjoyed the two or three hours I played of it. I just can't seem to find the motivation to go fire it up again despite enjoying my time with it and stopping only because it was late at night and I was getting tired.

  • The Walking Dead - Halfway through Episode 2. When I started ignoring all the things that don't add up or make sense, the story started to really grab me. I love the interactions between the characters.
  • Mass Effect - Beaten the trilogy before, now I decided to do it again and take my sweet time. The first game is just so much superior than 2 and 3, which are also great. Mass Effect 1 is something else though. Majestic. Really enjoying it.
  • Mirror's Edge- My 4th playthrough since release, this game is still so refreshing.

  • Bioshock Infinite - Fantastic city in the sky and the storytelling is superb. However, I'm getting sick of the shootouts, so I took a break from it. I'm around the end, I think.
  • DmC Devil May Cry - Very pretty, but boring. Hack and slash games are so repetitive.. Also on a break from this one.
  • Dishonored- Same playthrough since release. I think the gameplay is really innovative and fun but I get so bored after 15 minutes.
  • Dark Souls- Really not seeing the point of this bland music-less character-less event-less life-less game that is all about combat with tough enemies. What's the point? I mean hell yeah it's satisfying when I ace a fight after my 30th attempt, but then I'm met with the next batch of enemies and mini bosses.. What am I doing with my time?

I dunno man, 1 out of 20 games really grabs me and has me beating it in less than 5 days, nowadays. Everything else is, sadly and unfortunately to my enjoyment, just so meh despite having great aspects.

I finished Bioshock Infinite the first week it came out. I wanted to make sure that I didn't get spoiled on anything, so I kind of raced through it.

I have been going back and playing through Diablo III. I got my main to lvl 60 and now I have 6 prestige lvls and I am just about done with Inferno. I am really just trying to decide what to do now that I have finished Bioshock Infinite. I have a few things on my pile of shame but I just can't decide... It's driving me a bit crazy.

Xbox 360:

GTA V: I know i already should have finished this game but for some reason I keep starting other new games before I even finish this one

NHL 14: More of the same from previous years but it´s still fun.

iPad app:

Quizkampen: Don't know if it´s got an English name also but it´s just an normal quiz game

On my way to work trying to beat my friends high scores: Jet Boy, just an easy game but I´m not going to let any of my friends get the high score =)

I've started a ton of games but at this very moment, I'm forcing myself to finish Tales of Xillia, Wild Arms and Killzone Mercenary. Not forcing myself like they're bad but forcing myself because I have no self control when it comes to games. I jump from game to game a lot before I finish the previous one and it's very annoying. It's just hard for me to play through one game nowadays unless it's absolutely fantastic like TLOU or I just want to finish it fast. I'll also be starting Brothers tomorrow because it'll be free on PS+ and I've been waiting to play that since they announced it'll be free at the end of December.

#161 Posted by BeachThunder (11822 posts) -

Oh, look, a comment I posted 8 months ago...

Erm, anyway, Spelunky. I won't stop until I beat the full game.

#163 Edited by GunstarRed (5115 posts) -

I finished Killzone Shadow Fall this morning. It took me five days to beat because I wasn't having very much fun by the end. (Oh my god is that mid-credits level the worst!) It sure is a modern fps. I wasn't expecting more from the gameplay, but I was expecting a little more from the visuals and occasionally the framerate would drop out at weird times, like when doors were opening... never during the action. Some of the lighting and areas later in the game look real nice, but not that nice.

#164 Edited by cubepunk (16 posts) -

I started playing Dark Souls. Tough, but rewarding. I'm really liking it but I know there's more pain and frustration to come...

I also really hate soccer, but somehow found myself playing Fifa 14's career mode a lot this week. Curse my brother visiting from Canada and convincing me to play it. Turns out it's pretty fun.

Yakuza 3, took me a while to get back to the series after the first two but I'm glad it's as silly as always. Hardboiled gangster action and escorting 6-scoop ice cream cones, yup.

Aww, don't seem to have posted in this thread back then. Wanted to see what I was playing a year or so ago.

I have a Civilization V: Brave New World run that I've kinda put on pause for a while until I finish Dark Souls.

Also playing Pokemon X. Started trying to finish that rather than just grind out more money for some reason whenever I play it (I've got 4.4m Pokedollars, and I've spent about 4m as well).

I also started a Fable 2 run, too.

Right now I'm waiting for my new PC.

When that comes I shall continue with replaying Sniper Elite V2 and Bioshock Infinite.

I am also playing through Tomb Raider, Witcher 2 and will start Last Light soon.

All this is on hiatus though.

Oh, and the DLC episode of Dual Destinies.

Team Fortress 2. No matter how many times I look over my big ass list of games nothing is looking appealing to me right now so I just spend all day playing Team Fortress 2. Over, and over, and over, and over, and over again. I'm going on I think day 9 of getting up at 9am-10am and playing Team Fortress 2 until 9pm-10pm. I need to play something else so badly but just nothing looks appealing to start in on. I think I'm going something something...

I finished Zelda: A Link Between Worlds this weekend. I held off on beating it for some time because I was absolutely determined to find all the maimais, which I did! So after I got them all I completed the game. It was great.

I played a bit of Contrast this weekend, which I will return to probably soon. I am already a 1/4 or a 1/3 through it, so I think I can just get the rest done in one sitting.

I keep going back to Rogue Legacy. I am on game+ right now and not having much luck. F all those spikes!

I am playing co-op through Lego Marvel Superheroes with my husband. Yesterday we just ran around unlocking characters. I have She-Hulk now, I'm happy.

That's all for now. I have a poop ton of stuff in my steam library that I need to start/finish. I also need to return to Saints Row IV, I just kind of fell off playing that when the Borderlands 2 Loot Hunt started and I played that for a whole month nonstop. That was great too, since I did it co-op with my husband, once again. Makes dedicating yourself to a game easier when someone else is itching to play it.

Playing Dead Rising 3 with a friend and it is just a blast. Not as enjoyable solo though. This game is really impressing me technically. You know when you make a Rollerhawg and you go around burning down Zombie packs 2-3 dozen at a time...yeah that is just so awesome to just witness. Zombie AI and model diversity is great too and preserves the illusion extremely well. Fun and well made game.

  • I put a few minutes into Sequence. Only enough to get past the tutorial.
  • I was playing a bit of Resonance of Fate, but decided to jump into Kingdom Hearts instead. The nostalgia is SO worth it.
  • And, of course, Xenosaga I & II. Always play a game you have no hope of understanding.

Fire Emblem Awakening, and perhaps still time for a bit more Skyrim. And maybe some Spelunky.

Do you mean Yama? If so I wish you luck on your venture, but I won't be following you down your self-destructive path. Though I would like to get to hell one day, I've given up on that dream. Beating Olmec with an iron-man run is already something I never thought I could accomplish, so I'm coming out ahead on this one.

#180 Posted by VaddixBell (242 posts) -

I just finished Persona 4 Golden - absolutely amazing. Still one of my favourite games ever.

Jumped back into Dark Souls. I normally make Dex and Int/Faith builds. Never really played that much with a strength weapon (such as Zwei) so I decided to do a GiantDad build and it's been fun. Took some getting used to but it's been fun for the most part.

For a new game though, I think I might start Virtue's Last Reward or DmC. I'm undecided.

#181 Edited by RonGalaxy (3094 posts) -

I've been playing both Spelunky and Dyad sporadically. Might fire up Binary Domain soon. I'm also realllly close to buying Dark Souls, but Im not sure Im ready to commit to it yet. Also, I wish there was a version of the game that included the dlc on ps3. 20 bucks plus 15 for the dlc is a bit too much for me considering Im not sure I even want to play it really. Wish I could get both for like 20 bucks..

Edit: Ooops, dlc is 10 dollars. Hmmm.. Maybe if I look around hard enough Ill find a good deal on the ps3 version.

Clearing out my Steam backlog with Alice Madness Returns (played by reply number two in this thread a year and a half ago). It has interesting art direction, but not much else. That game makes me want to play Darksiders II, another on my backlog. I've also been playing a fair amount of Picross e3 on 3DS and just wrapped up Mario 3D World.

#184 Edited by BisonHero (6429 posts) -

@tom_omb: Yeah, by far the best part about Madness Returns is the art. And dat hair!

Aside from that, I felt like each world was INSANELY long with no real variety. The combat is second best part of the game, though at best it is functional, and nothing fancy. The platforming is just really dull, as are all the "puzzles" where you either shoot a switch that starts a timer, or drop a bomb on a switch (which is also essentially a timer because eventually the bomb goes off, no longer weighing down the switch). Also, they super obviously had to cut boss fights when they ran out of development time, so each world ends kinds of anticlimactically.

It's a flawed game, but I wouldn't tell someone to not play it. It's cool to look at.

How are you finding it? I've heard that it hasn't aged well and that the gameplay isn't great but the story holds up remarkably well.

#186 Posted by OldGuy (1546 posts) -

Playing Batman Arkham Origins (from the winter Steam sale)... The combat timings seem tighter (much less time to interrupt a foe attacking with my own attack - I kind of relied on this a lot in AA and AC), it's fun.

#187 Edited by Tom_omb (384 posts) -

@bisonhero: Interesting, combat is by far my least favorite part. Enemies are bad at projecting when they are vulnerable and when they are hit. The dodge mechanic will place me right within an enemy's fire more times then it will get out of the way. And the targeting is the worst I've seen, often when targeting an enemy it won't fully appear on the screen. How did OoT get it so right 15 years ago and Alice get it so wrong 3 years ago?

Although, I will say, it can be satisfying to switch between her variety of weapons.

My favorite thing, besides the art, is exploring to find the snouts and memories. While the jumping doesn't feel great, platforming is a nice calm between the aggravating combat.

#188 Posted by TowerSixteen (542 posts) -

Been playing Rune Factory 4 and Mark of the Ninja. Both are excellent. I played the most recent Harvest Moon recently, and Rune Factory, which had significant improvements and additions in every iteration, really highlights just how bad that series has stagnated.

#189 Posted by BambamCZ (137 posts) -

Started Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance PC on hard. I love the genre but I'm also really bad at it. So I eased myself into it with playing on normal and now after also finishing both DLCs decided to go for another round on hard. Really cool game, with awesome soundtrack. Though considering my first playthrough I wished the game would have bashed some mechanics over my head constantly to force me to learn them as I didn't feel the need to learn how to parry until the later part of the game.

#190 Posted by Nightriff (4986 posts) -

@vaddixbell: Took me about 2 or 3 hours to really understand the combat and what I'm doing, I am following a guide for the demon conversations because that still makes no sense to me but it is a fine playing game, yes I do wish for the combat system in 3 and 4 but I'll live. Story and characters are great, instantly charming and funny. Probably what bugged me the most is that it jumps straight into the story so I was lost for an hour or so in what is exactly going on but I've caught up and kinda get what is happening.

#191 Edited by thebunnyhunter (1379 posts) -

I've been playing through Persona 4 Golden and I'm on new game plus now and I got to say all the new content makes this game feel complete. The Epilogue wraps things up nicely l...I can't quite explain it but now I'm

happy with the ending where as before it just felt incomplete, it's probably being able to see your friends continue to grow but still stay together as friends.

Other than Persona I played the intro to Enslaved and all I can say is I'm interested in where this story goes. I'm also replaying Bioshock Infinite on 1999 mode and its really hard, I'm not looking forward to two specific fights but I'm finding the combat, it gets pretty intense.

#192 Posted by RetroVirus (1469 posts) -

Since Jeff was playing Reaper of Souls on UPF, I've been playing through Diablo III again, this time as a Monk instead of my Wizard. It definitely has some story problems and I'm not a huge fan of waiting for a skill to activate after I put a new one into the hotbar, but it's still a fun game. The always online stuff still really hinders it, I think, because my internet was spotty this weekend, causing multiple instances of the game lagging all to hell, and that feels horrible in an action game. It makes me think that I'd prefer to go with a console version of Diablo next time around, probably on PS4.

#193 Posted by BisonHero (6429 posts) -

@tom_omb: It might be that I just really liked savagely knifing the shit out of dudes (you should absolutely upgrade the Vorpal Blade before anything else). I had no problem with the dodge, so maybe we're playing differently in whether we lock on or what direction we dodge in or something. It's been a year or two since I played the game, so I forget the specifics. Yeah, I do kinda remember some of the enemies being shitty about blocking constantly, or not counting what seemed like perfectly fine hits.

Exploring for the hidden stuff was alright, and I liked the cool "Alice gets small, and for some contrived reason that makes invisible messages and platforms appear" mode. I just wish the snouts and memories did, like, anything at all? I think they just give you concept art if you find like, all of them. I kinda liked the Cheshire Cats riddles, though there weren't a ton of them, and you could just keep retrying them, which felt kind of like cheating. A lot of the time, instead of a riddle, it was just a combat arena, which was not as cool.

I'm planning on getting the PS4 version as well, but in the meantime I've also picked up the PS3 version. Offline play and the loot changes really do make a huge difference in the enjoyability of that game. I'm having a blast, and this time I have zero stress about disconnect deaths or worrying about how to find good gear. Hardcore mode (my personal favorite way to play) especially is miles better when you can play offline.

That's sounds a lot better, good to hear. I read that the D3 saves on PS3 can be transferred to PS4, and that would be great should I decide to go that route.
