I am well aware that this is not an rpg. I edited my original post 2 seconds after finishing it to clarify that posting it here was an accident, and asked the mods to move it...

So what is P.T.??

A short horror playable horror teaser. It is meant to be horrifying and succeeds on all fronts. Although it does have some stupid ass puzzles. The gameplay is very much you just walking around. Every now and again you have to press a button, but it is mainly just walking around staring at different things.

I think Kojima is starting to have problems with grammar. First Ground Zeroes now Silent Hills. Can't wait for the Phantom Pains and whatever else Hideos freaking Kojimas wants to do next.

Okay I feel like this game needs to be talked about because....GOOD GOD. For those of you that haven't played it, PLAY IT. If you don't own a PS4...Buy one. This one hour demo is the best thing on the console. Seriously. Its free, its amazing, and I really don't wanna spoil the surprise for anyone who hasn't beaten it yet, although I suppose everyone has read about it by now. This is the first game to make me feel genuine fear since Silent Hill 2 back in the day. The final reveal was the icing on the cake. I haven't felt such atmosphere for years, and even when a jump scare happens, it doesn't feel completely cheap, it was built up to perfectly. The fact that most of the fear comes from the slower moments is so great. Seriously PLAY IT!

Edit: I am so freaking sorry, I could have sworn I posted this in miscellaneous games, could a mod please move it? Sorry again.

Well one game you should definitely check out is Half-Life 2. I would recommend HL1 but it hasn't aged as well. There is a remake of the game that is really good though. Half Life 2 is probably one of the best FPS games around, and could very well reach towards being one of the best games of all time. IMO at least. Seriously though, try it.

I am really pumped to be getting this on PS4 next month! The fact that it comes with the expansion already is a great deal, not to mention I heard the game is vastly improved from initial release. Tell me, are the classes still pretty straightforward when it comes to building them? I remember having linear skill selection paths and that irked me a bit.

Unfortunately I'm not going to pay my subscription for awhile. Waaay to many games coming that interest me, and the game has been losing my attention for awhile. If I get the bug I'll pick up a time card again.

The sad thing is, I think the PVP is supposed to be what makes the game last, if the content leak was a real thing. If so, this game just went from lasting ten years for me, to lasting a couple months. Really disappointed in the multiplayer side. Hopefully they do treat it like an MMO and we get free content updates, but chances are we are going to have to dredge out the money for the expansions.

I don't know, the Titan has that epic punch that feels SOOO good. Just walk into a level one area and start punching away, and the enemies go flying. I also found an area I didn't know about in the beta, The Grottos. Not to mention I broke the game last night, escaped the map! Fun times.
24  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Destiny on: July 17, 2014, 10:19:11 AM
Dood. I wish these damn things would have been available on launch day. Kind of a slap to the face for anyone who bought day one. "Love your PS4 kids?" Yeah! "Thanks for buying it! For anyone else, here is this ten times better looking one!" Sony. Assholes. I did greatly enjoy the alpha, except for the Crucible. Anyone that is saying that it is the return of oldschool Halo needs to get their brains checked. Its the return of Halo Reach and Halo 4 multiplayer. More COD influences in the multiplayer than Halo influences.

Finally finished ALBW last night, amazingly enough it was the second Zelda I ever beat, and the first was two days before that, and that was OOT. A Link to the Past was the first Zelda I ever played, so ALBW hit all the right notes for me, and was simply freaking amazing. When I was playing OOT I wasn't having very much fun at all. The story was actually surprisingly surprising, and the music and graphics were freaking FANTASTIC. The only problems I had with the game were heart pieces being locked behind Mini-Games. Especially the baseball and Hylian foot race ones.

The painting mechanic was well used for the most part, aside from a few problems I had with it. The dungeons felt creative and fun aside from the fact that they were all mostly based on one or two tools. I also never, EVER, EEEVER used that boomerang once. Not once. It was useless. This game has gotten me really pumped for Zelda U. I really hope they don't call it that.

I think Sony's Conference was probably the best of the day. EA's was definitely the worst. Microsoft came at a close third, but the Rainbow Six Siege gameplay just made me squeal in excitement. The highlights of Microsoft's was the Sunset Overdrive gameplay for sure! That game looks awesome, and it helps that I am a huge Insomniac fan. It was a really tight conference, but I was never surprised or totally excited. Sony's got me pumped for LBP 3, The Order, and Uncharted 4. Overall 2015 looks like it'll be a good year for all gamers. Edit: Also the Master Chief Collection excites the Halo fan in me! I'm excited for some Halo 2 multiplayer!

I'm starting to enjoy the game more. The story is picking up and Aiden is becoming more likeable during every encounter with his sister. Still wish he would drop the voice thing though. He seems to drop it when he gets mad or worried, so it apparently isn't THAT important he use the voice. This game has the same problem as Assassin's Creed since Brotherhood. They pack a whole lotta meaningless side stuff into the game to distract you, but a lot of it isn't fun. Watch underscore Dogs (as the video game case says) does a little better with this though, because there are a lot of fun activities you can do. Its just that the game has a hard time connecting them to much of anything going on.

I also have a hard time believing Aiden to be a hero, especially right after I make him steal money from a suicide survivor, blood donor, and recovering alcoholic. I also kind of went on a murder spree for a trophy, so that doesn't help me get closer to him at all.

My brief time with the multiplayer was a quick checklist of annoyance.
1. Get Hacked.
2. Find Hacker.
3. Unload weaponry on hacker.
5. Profit
Maybe there are better modes in the game, but I'm going to wait for this to hit 20 bucks in a year or so before I buy it. Its not a complete GTA clone, in fact it feels more like Assassin's Creed and GTA had a baby, with a way worse story. I mean everything WORKS in this game, and its pretty good at what it does, but it isn't keeping me interested.

I actually think the new Wolfenstein game is far more impressive. Its a damn good game, and shows you don't need flashy gimmicks to have fun. Its also really pretty during some levels too. I would recommend that one over this one, but both are still just rentals.

So I played it on the PC, and thoroughly did not enjoy it. The hacking isn't very fun or really innovative. The most fun I had was changing the lights and making the cars slam into each other. The driving is pretty terrible. It feels like they didn't know whether to go full on arcade or realistic, so they met somewhere in the middle, and the resulting driving is not very fun. Maybe I just need to put more time in it, but the main character isn't exactly compelling me to go back and finish his story. If you have Gamefly definitely rent this, but overall so far I'd give it 7/10.
