Well that took me by suprise..
So.. I've been playin' some games lately. More importantly, I've bought some games on Steam..
Just Cause 2
So that's a lot. A lot to play, and... Oh hey, what's this?
Nine hours, nine persons, nine doors, for the DS.. hmm.. well.. okay let's give it a try.
ALL THESE OTHER GAMES ARE NOW SHIT.
I can't play them. I can't.
The DS Game
It's 2 am, and I can't stop playing. First thing I do when I wake up- play more of this game. Played it all day. Finished it. Shit. The story is so well told and suspensful, the characters and their dialogues are well written, it's funny, it's smart, it's great.
I'd gladly continue to present the different aspects of 999's appeal, from the easily recognizable, greatly detailed (in terms of visual design) and fairly complex characters, to the engaging, unique story, but that's not the point of this blog. Let's move on.
So anyway, I'm a sucker for good story based games.
Then I return to my Steam games. I look for a good story, hungry for more. More. MORE!
Back to you, Steam
BullyStory? What a piece of shit. What a big pile of excrement. These characters.. UUUGH! All of them, dumb asses. I know, that's the point, but it doesn't make it eaasier to deal with those fucking ASSHOLES. Every one of them. Every last one is a gargantuan dumb stereotypical asshole. The Nerds are nerdy as shit, the Jocks are a bunch of muscled idiots.. Goddamn.
DarksidersRiiight.. there's no story here. Really. Maybe later on, but for now.. it's just "go there, kill that". And the main character is a big dumb tree trunk. War has NO personality. He barely even speaks. He utters all his sentences through his half clenched jaw, you know, tough guy style. His eyes are constantly narrow, and he doesn't mind the fact that everybody's treating him like a 5$ hooker.
War, do this, do that. Kill that guy. Bring me this. Bring me that. He's a fucking HORSEMAN of the APOCALYPSE. He's WAR GODDAMNIT. Act like WAR. Sheesh.
Just Cause 2Thank god I've completed this game before 999. Oh thank the LORD in heavens. Oh, don't get me wrong it was SUPER fun, but the stroy is really cheesy. I like a good cheesy story, but this.. ermm.. yeah.
P.B. WinterbottomAn interesting title, I dig the whole "Pie Stealing" bit. Might play it some more.
RecettearThe dialogues are.. gah. The game's great though, it's really worth your time.
ShankHahaha, haha.. no.
TorchlightSto-ry? Never heard of it. Must be something new in vidja games. In Torchlight, we click on things untill they DIE mister.
Still a good game though.
It's not that these games are BAD, I'm just in the mood for a game with some narrative and interesting characters. And in my humble opinion, these games don't really have this things.. they have great gameplay, but there's a plot shaped (?) hole in my heart..
