Video games...what ya playing? And what are you looking forward to?

28,588 posts in this topic

Currently playing: Assassin's Creed (had to play this before #2 arrives), Operation Flashpoint 2 (not impressed so far), Half Life 2 "The Orange Box" (good so far, even though it's old), Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2, Saints Row 2, NHL 10

Looking forward to: Brutal Legend, Fallout 3 GOTY (played the full game, just picking this up for the 5 DLC's), Borderlands, Forza 3, GTA4 Episodes of Liberty City, COD:MW2, Assassin's Creed 2, Left 4 Dead 2. Got all these games preordered.

Recently finished: Batman Arkham Asylum, Halo ODST, X-Men Origins Wolverine

How is Ultimate Alliance 2? I really enjoyed the first one.
IMO the first was better. While the new one has improved most of the graphics, and the fusions are certainly more fun, they have unfortunately removed the RPG element of the game where you were in control of what powers you had available to you. Now your skills are just given to you.

My biggest complaint about it though is the local co-op multiplayer. The original set the standard for 4 player co-op. But the developers have totally ruined the co-op this time around. Only player 1 gets the achievements for beating each level. And only player 1's stats are saved. You might as well not even have local co-op if you are not going to reward the other players who join in.

However if you are going to play single player only, then I don't see why anyone wouldn't enjoy this game. The powers really do look and feel a lot better. Although I haven't used all the characters yet, I can say for certain that Torch and Iceman are complete badasses now.

:shrug:

I'll wait for a year to get it out of the bargain bin then. Thanks.

Looking forward to COD:MW2 but more so for Battlefield: Bad Company 2, both on PC.

In a year, The Old Republic.

Somewhat interested in Borderlands.

I forgot about this one. Mad Cow knows a lot of stuff about things that are Serious Business. Assuming we're all still alive and kicking with TOR drops, we ought to get a guild going.

I also envy you guys that are just getting into Oblivion now. I loved that game. Loved it. By FAR the best value I ever got out of a video game. Hands DOWN.

Still playing GOW2, and I still want to finish Mirror's Edge - I left off halfway through.

Will buy:

Modern Warfare 2

FIFA 10

Might buy:

Bioshock 2 (I plan on buying Bioshock 1 and working my way through it)

For me, Bioshock 1 is the best game since goldeneye for n64. If you play it try and pick up as many recordings as possible. Some will mind **** you.
That's a bold statement right there. Bold.

I am currently beta testing MAG massive action game.

It is the 256 players in one battle at a time. There is no lag at all and it is pretty amazing as is and it months away from completion.

I will be playing some old titles and MAG beta until it releases, I don't want to pay for another game that will I will drop as soon as MAG comes out.

If you own a playstation and like first person shooters, MAG is a must try, just to see what it is like to be in a battle with a couple hundred players.

Infamous...anyone?

Just finished it today. Thought it was a load of fun and nothing like anything I'd played before. You get to choose between being a good guy or "infamous".Excellent storyline and graphics, fun controls. Someone mentioned in the PS3 thread it can be a bit repetitive and I agree with that to a point. New powers are always being opened up so that helps with the repetition.Definitely worth a rental. If you purchased the game it would have a ton of replay value as you could switch your moral position.

That's just my opinion in regards to the fun factor I had while playing it, the only other games that have come close were be diablo2 and a few rpgs most haven't heard of. But playing bioshock with the lights out, volume loud, and late at night on the hardest difficulty is :kicksrock: . The level Fort Frolic is just so damn good.

I agree. That is bold. I'd say it's the best game since Half-Life 2.

Besides, after playing a PC shooter, I could never go back to playing Goldeneye on the N64 and I still can't (Goldeneye Source is a good port if anyone wants to check that out). Even Rare's own Perfect Dark for the N64 was a superior game. No console shooter felt right until Halo perfected the controls, IMO.

Ace Combat 6. Had it sitting unopened and collecting dust but once I started playing it became addicting.

Anno 1404: Kind of like a Blizzard does Civ. More focused on building and trade than warfare though. Great game from a great series.

Empire: Total War: Total War series is one of my favorites and the developers have finally fixed the AI.

I seem to be in an RTS kick. I don't play much anymore. Maybe three or four hours a week. I'm looking forward to Mass Effect 2, Bioshock 2, and Assassin's Creed 2.

Playing: Darkfall

Waiting patiently: Diablo 3

That finally came out? I was looking forward to that game for what felt like the better part of a decade.

How is it?

I bought this for the DS a couple of weeks ago and I'm enjoying it. It's called "Dawn of Discovery" on that system.

Dragon Age: Orgins (pc/360/ps3) is coming out soon for the rpg fans out there. Its made by BioWare(mass effect, bauldurs gate). The camera view can go close up to 3rd person in the sky mode, and from the gameplay video, it looks like any way is playable, not like fallout3. Its gameplay is in line with Never Winter Nights and Bauldurs Gate. Also from what I have read it is bringing back hard mode to rpgs for the fans of getting stomped on. Gameplay Vid. FYI the video has a fbomb or two to go along with the nerd/rpg schtick commentary. Its a 20 minute vid and the gameplay starts at 3 minutes, before that is a semi showing of the item/skill interface.

I'll inevitably pick this up because BioWare made it, but this game looks a lot like Neverwinter Nights, which I was not particularly fond of. I'm not a fan of the micromanaging of spells, etc. required by those games.

I'm currently playing Demon's Souls. So far, this game is absolutely awesome. If you haven't seen a review yet, it's basically Dungeons and Dragons on the PS3. It's also very old-school in the sense that there's no in-game pause and no checkpoints. If you die in a particular level, you go all the way back to the start of that level. And just about every enemy you encounter is quite capable of killing you if you're careless. I haven't played a game like this since when I had my Sega Genesis. It's not as difficult as many of the reviews have made it out to be, but it is definitely unforgiving and it never holds your hand. I have Uncharted 2 coming from Amazon next week, and I'm really wishing these two games had been spaced out more because I hate having to take time away from either.

If you have a PS3, you should really do some research on this game and at least give it a rental to see if its for you.

That looks like a cool game. If I still owned a PS3 I would absolutely pick that up.

I have never played Oblivion--there I said it.

However, I don't think now is a good time to start it with Uncharted 2 tomorrow and Left for Dead 2 and Modern Warfare 2 right around the corner.

I did just order Wii Resort for my daughter this morning, so I am sure she will pull me into that as well.

:confused: I'm not the only one.
I'll be playing as well. (probably on the 360). I've heard the manager mode has some horrible bugs right now though. (which is the main draw for me). I'm learning to play with full manual controlls on the demo (no direction assist, not even for short passes). It hurts on the short passes (especially against pressure) but it makes my through ball game so much better. Its much more satisfying to score. I'm not really playing anything current. Mostly BF2 on the PC and college hoops 2K8 (finishing up my legacy mode before the EA game comes out in november) with some BF1943 sprinkled in.Waiting for....Fifa 10(october)Battlefield Bad Company 2 (march)Assassins Creed 2 (November)NCAA basketball 2010 (november)I've got some other games i've considered, but this should be enough to keep me busy.

NCAA basketball 2010 (november)

Is this game going to be good this year? I haven't cared for the EA Sports basketball games for a long time now and I still play College Hoops 2k7 when I need my college basketball fix. Edited by SlaX

it looks very promising. its based on the NBA Live engine (which is getting very good reviews) and has unmatched presentation (both CBS and ESPN announcers and graphics). Like any other sports game (especially a college game) it comes down to the dynasty mode for me. if its great, i'll be there on day 1. if it sucks, i'm out.

I just went through Bioshock maybe a month or two back. Great, great game. As soon as I finished it, I wanted to play the whole thing over again.

Currently playing: Halo ODST. It's fun if you are into Halo (it's mostly just more of the same) and Firefight mode will keep my friends and I occupied for a few months until something new comes out.

At some point I will pick Fallout 3 back up but I had to force myself to take a break from that game as it can consume your life.

Can't wait for Bioshock 2, loved the first one.
