Borderlands 2 made me yell "Shut the fuck up" at my monitor. The somewhat entertaining gameplay got completely buried by its obnoxious idea of humor for me. It's quite shocking that Tales from the Borderlands is actually pretty funny.
@butler: Have you seen Sonatine? If you like Takeshi Kitano, you'll probably really enjoy it. One of my favorite yakuza movies. If you want something more on the bizarre side, there is always a million different Takashi Miike movies out there to check out.
Seconding this. Sonatine is really great, maybe one of my top 10 movies of all time. It's dark and disturbing, but still has Kitano's trademark sense of humor. And some of Joe Hisaishi's best music to date.
I've played quite a few old games this year. Some of them are really old.
I spent a good chunk of my gaming time this summer replaying Fallout 2. That might be my Old Game of the Year. I became the boxing champion of New Reno by getting doped up on Buff-Out and punching my opponents in the balls. Fake Mike Tyson went down in one hit.
Then there's The Witcher 3, which I finally got around to playing this spring. I really loved that game. The characters are just so damn likable. And man, that Bloody Baron questline is a pure masterclass in writing and quest design.
Played through both Castlevania 1 and Symphony of the Night and started Rondo of Blood. Kinda regret using the Crissaegrim for most of the Inverted Castle now, since it became absolutely trivial.
Judgment is a solid game. It's just underwhelming compared to 3. I got it for free through some competition at work, so I would probably be way less charitable if I paid full price for it. People were likely burnt-out on the Gears formula when it came out, which is why it got a lukewarm reception.
Baird is a poor choice for protagonist, but there were some genuine improvements. The scoring and bonus objectives were fun to play around with.
