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.
4.???
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.

Tried this game for a bit today, got up to Chapter 2 Verse 3, and my GOD, this game is repetitive. I wanna stick with it because the dialogue is hilarious and the characters are insane. I also tried Nier for a bit too, got up to right after my first meeting with Kaine, and the combat is just boring so far. I'll stick with that one too, but then again I have nothing to lose since I didn't pay for the games.

Definitely the Kingdom Hearts games. I had to explain to my parents why "Under the Sea" from the first game (part of the HD 1.5 Remix) was coming from my room.

You never, ever, ever need to be ashamed for liking Kingdom Hearts. Ever. EVER. Unless its Coded.

I am ashamed to say that I absolutely adored Hyperdimension Neptunia. Something about it just charmed from the get go.

This is actually the first Pokemon remake that I can be nostalgic for. The two games that I played the crap out of was FireRed and Sapphire, so HELL YES!

I think I'm just going to drop Witcher 2 because I just don't care at this point. I hit chapter 1, started some earl quests and I realized I just don't give an f about the game.

That game is so great though, I'd stick with it if I were you. Chapter 1 is pretty exhausting, but once you get to the end of it, the game really picks up. I can't say the sidequests were ever fun, but the story in the game is really great.

I bought Kingdom Hearts HD, and after much raging, and 22 hours of gameplay, I FINALLY BEAT THIS GAME. It only took me like 12 years. Childhood=won.
In all reality though, this game hasn't aged all that well, mainly the combat. It is however much more rewarding than Kingdom Hearts 2, since that one I remember being piss easy. I have so many fond memories of copying my brothers save religiously to get to the end, and still not beating it. Well gosh darned it I have won. Now when does 2.5 HD come out?

I just got the game on PS3, upgrading to PS4 now. Saved myself 15 dollars that way! I really enjoyed what I played on PS3, and if I get to terribly sick of the controller I can just use Mouse and Keyboard. Its a shame my PC sucks so bad though. I'm a level 20 gladiator. So far the game is excellent though!

Yeah, Genocider Jill was the point I stopped trying to make sense of the story and just decided to go along with the ride. Seriously though, she is brilliant.

I freaking love this game and still hold it as the best in the series. The guilds were top notch, there were sidequests everywhere, secrets to find, really the series at its peak. Aside from a few gameplay improvements in Skyrim, it wasn't really that great in my eyes. Dragons got old quick, the guilds were disappointing at best, and there were few memorable quests. That only elevates Oblivion in my eyes.

I'm going to put it on the back burner for a bit, and wait till I finish a couple other games like Stick of Truth and Escha and Logy. This one requires to much thought for my brain with so many other games going on right now.
