Since I was last on Giantbomb (I've been busy with baseball and homework) I beat Gears of War 2, "beat" Fable 2, or at least the main story line, and got all but two of the acheivements on NCAA 09. Gear of War 2 is the GOTY without a doubt, feel free to argue that with me any time. Fable 2 gets my vote for the most time consuming game, and I mean that in the best way possible. NCAA 09 is just another college football game, not spectacular, but makes for lots of random gameplay.
GEARS OF WAR 2
Best game I have ever played.
I really like the cover-based tactics, the feel of controll over Marcus, and the in game weapons.
The visual aspect of the game was incredible, great cut scenes and large battle fields.
The story captured my attention sooo well, and had me near tears multiple times.
I AM ADDICTED TO CHAINSAWING PEOPLE
Horde is one of the best multiplayer features I have ever used.
Game overall made you feel like you were/are the shit
Wide open gameplay both Saturday and Sunday of last week I sat down after dinner at around seven and played till twoish in the morning.
Semi-shallow plot, but it kept my attention.
Weak, Weak ending the final boss turns out to be the Great Shard not Lucien.
Morale choices are hidden very well and are tricky to make, including some were you must sacrifice you're EXP points to feed starving people.
Hannah, one of the heros, is very annoying.
A game I will end up playing more than any other just because its has so much in it.
NCAA 09, I just need the Stadium Sound Achievement and the Mr. February Acheivement, and then I 'll have "beaten" a sports game. Ball State 38-1 in three years dynasty, no big deal. Any way I hope to be on alot more for Christamas Break, much love, MURPH.
