So I bought Darksiders during the Steam sales because everyone said it was like a dark Zelda and I am a Zelda fan. I'm 2 or 3 hours in now and I have to admit, I'm not seeing how it's like Zelda in any way except that he's carrying a sword....
I've been playing Zelda games since the first one was new, I know my Zelda and as far as I can tell this ain't it. I keep waiting for it to become like Zelda, but so far it's God of War; button mashing, traversal, attack combos and weapon upgrades. It may be that my expectations aren't being met, but I can't help feeling a bit let-down by Darksiders, it doesn't remind me of Zelda at all. It could also be that I just finished a few God of War style games recently and I was ready for some Zelda action.
Am I missing something or does anyone else feel the same way?
Ok, the Steam sales of 2010 have finally come to an end and here is the list of shit i clicked on:
it looks best at 1920x1200 and on a nice long page like my profile page. each of them are on my must-get list and they're roughly in order of release date. i like it. keeps me reminded and i love seeing the imagery. i send ya' the psd file if anyone wants, i have all the layers labeled and everything =)
K, I'm annoyed, so I'm gonna write about it =)
A lot of games seem to do this lately and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is one of them....and yep, it still sucks!
You know how, when you're playing an action game and things are getting crazy, there's a lot of enemies closing in and you need to GTFO fast? Then, when things are at their most tense, your hands clench down on the controller and then....suddenly you dude is slow walking as if he's admiring the flowers and rainbows in a lovely field somewhere, not a care in the world
Seriously, why map the walk button of all buttons to L3? That's generally the stick you use to move your guy around, it's easy to accidentally click it when things get hectic and super frustrating when your guy starts moving all slow when all you really want is for him to move as fast as possible.
It's the same in way too many games these days too, I'm picking on Castlevania because that's the game I played last night. In this case though, it's not the walk button, it's the button that makes you stop completely for a second to collect any nearby orbs, but same diff, my dude stopped moving and meditated for a minute in the middle of a crazy fight.
Dev's should know better by now! It sucks! Don't put the walk button on a button that can be easily clicked on accident, it's really god damn annoying. If there's a list of trump rules that should never be broken by game designers out there somewhere, this one should be on it
that is all
So on the eve of the release of Metroid: Other M I'm going to throw my guess out there that Samus IS the other M. I watched the video again of that re-done cut scene where the (giant) baby metroid gets exploded and Samus appears to absorb some of the sparkly metroid stuff that floats down after the mother brain blows it to bits.
Alright serious question now, it just occurred to me last night. I'll give a little backstory of where I'm coming from, if it's a spoiler plz don't ruin it for me, I'm just curious about something. I just started playing Dead Space like 2 days ago and I'm trying to get caught up on the whole thing before Dead Space 2 hits. I have watched the prequel comics and Downfall, loving the story so far but I have one question....
Possible spoilers here so don't read any more if you haven't played it yet
So it seems to me that the marker was put in place on that planet by someone who had found a way to contain the Necromorphs since they can't get too close to the marker as seen in Downfall when the lady scrambled over by it and non of the necromorphs could enter a certain radius around the thing. I also noticed that the marker has, well, markings all over it, like writing and symbols.
I also noticed that as the crew of the Ishimura started losing their minds, some of them scribbles those same markings that are on the marker all over the walls of whatever room they were in, and usually in blood.
So, whatever the marker is, it appears to be possessing the minds of anyone nearby causing them to freak out in various, violent ways. This is where I'm confused. The marker seems to be affecting people's minds and driving them crazy, but at the same time, and usually right before they die or go on a killing spree, the affected people are also mumbling about how they want our bodies. "They" being the necromorphs
So, am I wrong about the marker being placed there by another race or whatever? A simple yes or no will do =)
Because now it seems like both the marker and the necromorphs are out to get us and that there's a connection somehow, but I was under the impression that the marker was not a friend of the necromorphs....
Can anyone give me a clue about wth is going on without spoiling things too much? Or will all be told in due time?
ok, assume i am a Dead Space n00b (because i am), i haven't played any of it, i'd like to play all of it and i have a pile of questions....
first let me list them:
Dead Space 2
Dead Space Extraction
Dead Space Ignition
Dead Space Downfall
let me see if i have my facts straight first....
Extraction is a prequel to the original and was a Wii exclusive but can now be had on the PS3, right?
Ignition is a prequel to, uh, the sequel that hasn't been released yet, right?
and Downfall is, wait, what the hell is Downfall?
and what about save file continuity? is it safe to say that the PS3 is the only system on which you can get each of these? and does it matter? do the saves carry over from one game to the next? in that most recent video, the smiley producer guy said something about getting Isaac all jacked up and ready, does that imply that progress made in Ignition will carry over into Dead Space 2? and what about my platform of choice, the PC?
basically i'd like to play every bit of it, but i'm not sure which order to play/watch all of this
i'm so confused
so, we seem to have a little summer lull in game releases here, which games are you gonna try to knock out before the next wave of releases hits?
next up on my must-get list is Starcraft II, then Metroid and Civ after that
i'm gonna try to finish my S-ranks in HL2 and episode 1 and also go back and finish the last island in inFamous if i have time....and that's not even counting the madness i amassed during the steam sales
