You'd tbink after the travesty of Colonial Marines that the Alien video game franchise was effectively dead and buried...yet somehow from the wastes of angry consumers and broken CDs, this arose. Makes me wish I had a PC real bad.

Edit: OH SHIT, this is coming out on the quattro? Fuckwin!!!

I don't know why people are bitching about story or lack of content or the like. The game has a shitton to do for q generic fps, and is pretty on par with XIV in terms of initial content, difference being that you pay monthly for XIV and destiny isn't pay to play. In strict gameplay terms it's fantastic. Handles as well as Halo ever did, smooth controls and semi-precise aiming (hard to tell when it's all online) and an easy to pick up control scheme. The scenery is beautiful and well designed, and nothing is as awesome as baseball sliding in snow and making ass prints. A lot of people complain about thd weaponry, but why are you expecting alien weapons everywhere? Most of the alien arms are funky and strange looking, didn't any of you watch district 9? It shouldn't be assumed that you can pick up some alien gun and it fires like a normal assault rifle...(ok I'll stop that now). Seriously though, it is a bit underwhelming to have such a generic assortment of weaponry, though the weapons are all seriously well designed themselves and handle beautifully. My biggest grievance is just the sheer difficulty of packs at high levels, and that's just me sucking honestly. Doing level 22 strikes devolves into hit and run tactics and serious camping syndrome. I assume as my equipment improves (most of it is still 18 or 19) I should be better adapted to actual combat, but til then, my new pue sniper rifle is gonna get plentg of work.

In reality, the hype was WAAAAYYYYYYYY to strong for this game, but it is a terrificly awesome game from a mechanical standpoint. Also, all the Peter Dinklage haters should die for their dislike, his voice fits the ghost so well it's awesome.

Add me if you want a ridiculous punchdrunk titan buddy. AgentDv1 as usual. I'll be honest though, I've had very little free time to play during the week so don't expect me online monday-thursday. I'll be grinding like whoa in about an hour though since I'm getting off work in a few minutos.

Have you played The Last of Us yet? Great fucking story, short game, and easy difficulty to make your playthrough an experience rather than an endeavor.

Crimson Shroud is really good but also pretty short. 'Tis also pretty cheap and it goes on sale regularly enough (not Atlus Sale regular)

There is also Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate. I remember you saying you enjoyed the PS2 games on IRC before. The game is fun and the hit boxes have improved a lot. No wifi online though, just streetpass. MH4U is coming out next year though so you may want to wait. It also has multiplayer that uses wifi.

Not sure how you feel about dungeon crawlers but both Etrian Odyssey IV and Untold are great.
You must be nuts sir, I have a serious HATE for monster hunter on any console really simply because of the controls. It drove me nuts trying to play the first one. But I'll take a peek at crimson shroud.

makes thread about game recommendations;
insists on rule forbidding bad mouthing other people's suggestions;
immediately begins bad mouthing other people's suggestions.

this is CHAOS!! we've descended into CHAOS!!!!

You haven't been here nearly long enough to know about my badmouthing, it's a joke.

Edit: I'm also gonna point out that simply accepting recommendations for stuff that you have played is silly, but just denying a suggestion because you don't like it is mean. The thing about monster hunter is that I've never liked monster hunter ever, and him saying I had a conversation about liking it over irc had to be misconstrewn or he simply got the wrong guy. I'm not being a dick or just disregarding suggestions. I'm quite sure I'll look into the other things mentioned here, darilon has always had good opinions regarding gaming (plus he's Irish, so there's that).

Some ideas:

- Rune Factory 4
- Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity
- And then there's Fantasy Life coming out fairly soon
Alrighty, cool, I got some options to look into, so I'll check em out and get back to you guys at some point.

I can't play xenoblade chronicles on a regular 3ds, you insensitive jerk!

But yeah, the rest of the suggestions minus SMT IV are all games I've played or beaten...guess SMT could be doable, so thanks sir.

Well you did ask for a New 3DS game and unfortunately there aren't too many of those around yet.

That said, you can still play XBC if you have a Wii and can find the game for a reasonable price. In fact, I would recommend it.
I meant new 3ds game as in something I haven't played, not something in development.

Ok, how about this.
Alright, try this.
Let's see, why not try this.


Notice how I typed 3 different sentences amd said exactly the same thing each time? Now imagime I said any of those with am english accent?

If you paint a volkswagon beetle black and yellow, it's not a volkswagon bumblebee, it's still a beetle no matter how many coats of paint you give it.

Now that I've seriously sidetracked my own topic, I'm looking for a new 3ds game, preferably rpg, not something zelda or mario related as I have played and beaten them all already. I'd prefer it stay 3ds onry but regular ds games are acceptable alternatives, though the zelda/mario thing also follows suit. Any advice is extremely appreciated as my poor 3ds has seen no use since I destroyed link between worlds ages ago.

....it's LITERALLY the same game with a shiny coating of ye olde english. No changes, no (story based anyway) new content, and a tacked on multiplayer that, while highly entertaining when you could find a second person with the game, was literally nothing more than fluff on what was an amazing game.

100% completely and totally the same game. Remakes usually change events and characters around. Adding 4 segments of Delita's side story that basically showed you what he would do in the next scene he was in doesn't count for beans. This was a retranslated version of a great game, not a remake.

What is WofTL and abbreviations suck :(

This problems happens to me like once a week on any gaming/entertainment forum. x)
Oddly enough that does make me feel less dopey. Thanks.

W(ar) of t(he) L(ions)...shouldn't have capitalized the T i guess
Yeah....most of us just call it final fantasy tactics...

Edit: Yeah, I read the reply while at work and missed most of it before I posted. I should have put 2+2 together, my bad.

*Yanks up pants high above waste, puts in pocket protector*

Final Fantasy Tactics usually refers to the PSX title, while War of the Lions refers to the remake (which is different enough from the original that a distinction needs to be made).

*end nerd rant*
Eh....no....FFTactics is the same game, there is no gameplay change aside from huge ass slowdown and 2 new classes and ad hoc multiplayer on psp as well as a lame translation...psx version was far better for hilarity purposes.

Regardless, played both, know pretty much everything about either, trisection is the greatest music in either game and most of the rest of the FF series.
