Re: General Gaming Discussion

I tried to say that games that have anything to do with Bethesda suck. I have no idea how Bethesda can publish games that are suffering from terrible technical problems. Fallout 3 did have it's fair share of bugs and glitches, but they didn't make the game unplayable. Rage is an unplayable game, just as bad as Brink, and it doesn't even look that good, Borderlands' graphics were prettier. Worse texture pop-ins and screen tearing than in the first Mass Effect. It just pisses me off that two of my badly anticipated FPSs are such clusterfucks.

Re: General Gaming Discussion

As a publisher Bethesda do have a terrible track record (Hunted, Brink and Wet being three recent key examples), but as a developer they have an excellent record IMO. I think their last three games (Morrowind, Oblivion, Fallout 3) are a good indication that Skyrim will be something special.

Thanks for the heads up my man lol.

I too have thought about starting a new game. I just got to the town part of Dead Island last night, and tbh it's not as great as I thought it would be.

I enjoyed the beach section much more.

When I'm sad, I stop being sad and be awesome instead

The majority of games out there that are heavily praised by reviewers and/or fans are mediocre or even under average, and then a masterpiece like Alan Wake comes around and they shit all over it. It's definitely miles ahead of other 360 exclusives and even PS3 exclusives, such as Heavy Rain, Gears, Gaylo, Fable, LittleBigPlanet, etc.

And the 360's exclusives are underrated. The PS3s exlusives aren't that special, most of 'em are overrated shit.

That's just your opinion. It looks as if you're treating it as fact, when it's not. I can say Alan Wake is a mediocre game. Why? The only thing it has going for it is decent writing. The storyline is what keeps the game afloat for most of the game, but the gameplay is boring. The atmosphere bored me. The game also seemed unfinished; there was this large vista we could've explored, but weren't able to. Perhaps mediocre was a little much. It's just solid, and that's it. It's not a masterpiece at all, in my opinion. You have a different taste palate than some of the cats in this forum, and that's fine. What you consider average and I consider average can be two different averages (we tend to agree on a few things, though). I'm a firm believer in subjectivity. I like Gears because of the co-op campaigns. Do I mindlessly praise the game to hell? No. I do enjoy the series, however. You like Alan Wake and consider it a masterpiece? Fine. I don't and I usually like horror games. It reminded me too much of Alone in the Dark (2008), which is a bad thing.

I'm keeping my expectations level for Skyrim. Oblivion is a bore to play and Fallout 3 isn't much better (save for VATS). I hope it's better than what I expect it to be, but I'm not holding my breath in anticipation.

My most anticipated game for the rest of the year is Saints Row: The Third. Can't wait.

Re: General Gaming Discussion

I'm trying to finish Dead Island, but I'm not sure what I want to stat next out of Gears of War 3, Dues Ex: HR or Driver: San Fran.

I will probably go with Gears 3 as it would be the shortest to complete, not counting multiplayer that is or a second play-through on the unlockable hardest difficulty. Human Rev will be a time consumer, as will Driver but not as much.

Re: General Gaming Discussion

It will take you about a week to finish Deus Ex if you don't play it all day long and if you complete every side mission and stuff. But it's definitely worth your time.

Re: General Gaming Discussion

That's not that bad, but for me a weeks time in gaming will be about a month or more. I only play for about 3 hours a day, maybe 4 if I push it and feel up to it.

I remember when I used to play for 10 hours a session, miss meals and not shower for days to game. I would only stop to eat occasionally and to sleep for a few hours. Then it was wake up, brush my teeth and repeat. Ahhh good times.

Re: General Gaming Discussion

Damn, you sure miss your youth, huh?

I played about 5-6 hours of Deus Ex for 3 days before I finished it, but haven't done all the side missions.
