Geometry Wars Evolved 2 aka CRACK WARS

Posted by TipTipTipaRoo (67 posts) -

This game has been crack to not only myself, but every person I introduce this game to.. I think that longest I sat and played was probably close 6 hours- drunk out of my mind with 4 other people, taking turns. Needless to say, a very addictive game.

Some friends and I drove to PAX the last 2 years in a row.  Edmonton to Seattle is a 14ish hour drive.  We played Geo Wars for about 8 hours straight, then when we got there and were in line we hooked up a 360 and a screen to play while we waited.

Lol well I guess it depends on who you are.. I haven't met a single person that could tell me that they didn't enjoy playing that game. Given half the time they were high or under the influence of something, but in my circle of friends and the people at IADT in the game dept. have agreed w me

@TipTipTipaRoo: From your reply it sounds like you misunderstood. 
 
What I meant to say is... that game is fucking amazing. Sober or not.

I think the only way to stop playing is to rage quit. I start playing, reach my peak and then the pad almost goes through the window.

Geo Wars 2 never hooked me like the first game.  Not sure why, maybe all those game modes make it hard to decide which one to focus on?  Maybe I don't like the multiplier shards?
 
I have an S-Rank in both anyways...

@HandsomeDead: LOL I totally know someone who ruined their brand new 52" hdtv because of that instance alone 
 
@Diamond: See I think it's opposite.. Once I get frustrated with one mode, I'll just be like 'fine I DIDN'T WANNA PLAY YOU ANYWAY!!!' and then go play waves or whatever.. and I'll go around the board.. it really is a vicious cycle, bc by the time I get back to the first one I was playing I kind of forget how mad I was at it

I'm extremely late to the party, but I just downloaded GWE 2 this morning. Amazing game. Love the visuals.

Yes, visuals are stunning and its so easy to even just be a spectator at this game :)

Oh wow, Geometry Wars is like no other. I was also addicted to it a while back... err, might still be.
 
I need more friends. Half the fun is trying to beat the next closest score on the leaderboard. Apparently must have really been in the zone at some point, because I look at my current top for Pacifism and wonder how the hell that ever happened. Never come close to matching it. =S

Lol totally agreed :) Its a constant war with yourself and others! and against sanity sometimes!!

I got hooked on Geometry Wars back when it was just an Easter Egg inside of Project Gotham Racing.  I loved it when it was added to XBLA and then the sequel later on.  It's still my most played arcade title.  What I love is the perfect time of the game.  I can have a fulfilling experience in just 3 minutes.  Like sex. (whooa!)

@PenguinDust:  HAHAHAHA whoaaaa.. I agree though def my most played arcade title
