Star Trek - This was pretty entertaining, but it felt more like a a bunch of action scenes with a small bit of story, rather than a good story supported by some action scenes. The movie looked fantastic, with some really great sfx. I thought Chris Pine did a great job with Kirk. I did not much like the Leonard Nimoy parts, as it felt interjected just to make the fanboys happy.
The sequel has the potential to be awesome if they pick the right villain(s) and pass on the homages to the past.

Beat Uncharted.
Code:
Chapter 22 was a bitch. Even on easy! Took me numerous deaths to figure how to do it. Then the final confrontation with ...um...that guy. I died a lot
Great game. Took me awhile to get used to the shootouts(No lock on! I'm a pansy!),but overall I really enjoyed it. Can't wait to play the sequel, although I WILL wait, as I would rather play some other games in between.
Valkyria is up next.

Uncharted - Chapter 19: WTF?!
Code:
So now all of a sudden we have...monsters? wtf are these things? Damn fast, and can kill me easily if I let them get too close. This game has suddenly become all survival-horror-like. I got my ass kicked numerous times before figuring out how these things act. Made it to the generator room with the two "switches" or whatever in the side rooms. I thought I had the third wave cleared when more of them showed up. I went to turn around, ran right into a friggin wall, and one of them got me. Game started me back at the first wave, and I said "fuck it" for the night.

Code:
You don't need to kill them though, all you got to do is run and shoot (without aiming), that's why the only guns there are the machine guns :P


Code:
Yeah, I checked gamefaqs after realizing that the things weren't going to stop coming back. Considering the rest of the game had areas with a set amount of enemies, you can understand why I didn't catch on right away.
In chapter 21 now, btw.

Hmmm. Maybe a little game called Mass Effect 2. I imagine it might sell a few copies.
; - )

Alpha Protocol - wasn't this originally supposed to come out this Fall? What's it scheduled for now?
FFXIII

Everything else is up in the air until reviews come out.

I responded on FB, so I'll just copy that here:

Good write-up there. From the very beginning I made it a point to very rarely be playing games around my son. I pretty much only play at night after he's gone to bed anyway, so this wasn't a big deal. Despite my "efforts", I now have an 8 year old who loves to play the DS, Wii, and some multi-player games on the 360. Thing is, though...I'm a bit of a walking contradiction, as I am also a gardener, and love to be outdoors. On any given day it is far more likely you'll find me outside than in. For awhile, my son was the same way. He would spend lots of time with me out in the garden, learning about plants, bugs, nature. Now it seems he would much rather be inside playing games.
I actually really enjoy playing 2-player games with him now, and see it as another form of bonding. Like those dads who toss a ball around with their kid. I guess we'll see where it all goes, but it's always good to hear about other parents going through the same situation.

2347  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: I have a question about Phantasy Star II (Don't worry, no spoilers here) on: November 19, 2009, 01:50:49 PM
There are 3 boss battles in Phantasy Star II.  4 if you count the unwinnable one.

Ok thank you. But despite having so few bosses, this is still a good game to play, right?

You made a mistake playing 4 first. It is far more accessible and a just plain better game(minus a few things I won't go into)
II is a total grindfest, and almost unplayable compared to modern rpgs. I loved it when it first came out, but I wouldn't go near it now. If you don't mnid the grind, and tough dungeons, go for it. I did love the setting, and overall feeling of the game. Plus, the music is pretty good, too.

Uncharted - Just started Chapter 17. I am wondering how much longer this will go(Don't tell me!). I'm guessing 20. Wish I could play this in bigger chunks of time. I hate to stop the momentum. I also wish you could carry more than 2 guns! Then again, I suppose that adds to the tension.
2349  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dragon Age: Origins on: November 19, 2009, 09:30:29 AM
I am AMAZED at how quickly some of you folks play through games. It just boggles my mind. I WISH I had that kind of time to dedicate to gaming.
I asked my wife for this for Christmas. I imagine I'll be playing it up until the release of FF XIII. This completely ignores the release of ME2 in January.
Perhaps I should use some of those vacation days...

The Incredible Hulk - This turned out better than I expected. Ed Norton is always good, and he made a decent Bruce Banner. I thought Tim Roth was an odd choice as his nemesis, but he seemed to be enjoying the part. The CG effects weren't the greatest, especially in the slow parts. The action scenes, especially the final battle, were pretty damn awesome. I put this right below Iron Man, which isn't a bad place to be.

Rachel Getting Married - Wow, Anne Hathaway was amazing in this. Now, I would not normally watch any movie having anything to do with weddings, but this felt different. The way it was filmed, it felt like I was actually a guest at this thing.  I was totally uncomfortable during certain scenes. Very well done.

Odd pairing of movies there, huh?

2351  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Dante's Inferno on: November 16, 2009, 04:17:00 PM
Haha crap, I didn't know you were 35 bro. My bad. :P
Ha! No worries, man. Pure coincidence.




2352  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Dante's Inferno on: November 16, 2009, 11:59:14 AM
Hmmm. I don't recall learning about Dante in school, let alone ever reading anything by him. I just learned a few bits and pieces from the ole interwebnet. By Meshs logic I am either 12, or I have never left my house. I am nowhere near 12(35 actually) and I leave my house on a routine basis. Sorry man, but your putting off a distinctly Gen-like vibe in this thread.
Not that I want to defend Mr. Nails or anything...
As far as the game goes, if it IS like GoW or DMC then I am a little interested. I'll wait for reviews before going any further.
2353  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Modern Warfare 2 on: November 13, 2009, 10:01:31 AM
I rarely play FPSes but I am officially intrigued by this game. Is there a continuing story between this and the first MW? Should I play that one first?
2354  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: looking forward to any holiday releases? on: November 13, 2009, 09:24:42 AM
Generally, what I want is already out (Uncharted 2, Dragon Age) or not out til next year (Mass Effect 2, FF XIII)
Plus, there's always those games that come out of nowhere and get added to the list. We'll see.
2355  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Famitsu announces a new Lufia (Estpolis) game on: November 13, 2009, 09:20:09 AM
I tell ya. I will always be disturbed by the comments involving bodily fluids.

Anyway, I loved the first Lufia for the SNES. I remember playing 2 for a bit and stopping because it seemed to be too puzzled based. I'd probably like it more now.
Never played another Lufia after those; apparently for the better. Still...I'll keep my eye on this.
