I finished Far Cry 4. Shooting guys and constantly getting attacked by animals is still really fun, but my favorite part was actually finding the evil masks. I normally can't give less of a shit about collectibles in games, but I got into this enough to find all 55. It was neat discovering all these eerie little murder scenes, and some of the notes you find from The Goat are really unsettling - especially the ones where he starts talking to you.

I was hoping something really cool would happen after you find all of them...
SPOILERSPOILER_SHOW
If you go to his lair at night, he's there - but he's just a normal Royal Army soldier, with a special animation where he tosses a knife in the air and catches it. Like a lot of stuff in the game, it's super anti-climactic. I like to think he's just a guy from Pagan's side who's also been hunting The Goat, and he got there before you did.

I read someone online saying they were afraid he would appear and cut your rope when you're climbing out of the well, which would have been the sickest shit ever.

So what you're saying is that you don't get to participate in a fashion show?

Playing Shadows of Mordor. I've come to love those zany dumb orcs when faced with a Caragor. They way the keep repeating "it's a caragor", "that caragor is massive", getting used as a chew toy, that dumb cheer they all do when they finally kill it.

These games can be beaten in a day? Man, I really don't get to play much during the week.
4) Metal Gear Solid
Haven't played this in years. Was it a one day game? I know I got so good I could whip through it, but a day. I can't remember.

Heavy Rain is definitely doable in that amount of time. Uncharted 2 took me quite a bit longer than that, but I also spend a lot of time gawking at the scenery, so maybe it's possible in a day.

sorta tried blasting through the rest of Far Cry 4 yesterday... godDAMN this game is long. I've only run into 2-3 "get knocked out, lose weapons" missions, but I'm also skipping everything those two annoying British tossers throw at me. main story only plz, thx

Uncharted 2 took me around 14 hours if memory serves. Play Vanquish.

btw Geoff, right now PS4s are $330 at Walmart. I know it'd require venturing into a Walmart, but you're not going to find one cheaper than that anytime soon

put that shit on layaway or something if you have to, '90s style

It was by the ending when the story was coming completely unraveled that I realized how truly shitty of a game it was, man. I could ignore the shitty character acting, the lack of agency, the awful gameplay if the story had been good. But the story was fucking TERRIBLE. AND, on TOP of that, it was poorly constructed.

You're basically saying, "hey guys, now that I know the dumb shitty twists AND the terrible story, should I rewatch a bunch of M. Night Shamalam movies ?"

I mean, hey go ahead and do whatever man it's cool. But don't ever expect me to take you seriously as a person again.

Of the ones listed I'd go with Fallout 3 or Uncharted 2. The thing is with U2 I'd be so burned out by the end that I wouldn't want to do the last few stupid monster levels and I'd just quit. But I seriously doubt you'll be able to get through all of F3 in one day. You'll probably get stuck dying to rad scorpions and quit.

One of them Call of Duty games can be beaten in one day, I'm positive.

You own a Wii, right? Get Super Castlevania and beat that.

So in my ongoing Johnny-come-lately quest to play the rest of the Dead Space series, I've fired up DS3 for the first time today. I'm really loving these environments and the lighting (at least on PC, neener neener), but Jesus... first the game makes me... shoot from cover. At human enemies. And then the necromorphs just sort of... there's always too many of them, and they rush you, and then you somehow survive anyway because you always have more ammo and health than you can spend. Ergh.

I'll probably keep playing this for the purdy graphics, but I'm really just constantly thinking whoever designed these rad Blade Runner environments needs to be working on some really cool cyberpunk game.

I still have DS3 collecting dust on my shelf. From the things I've heard I can never get inspired to try it. Maybe when I finally replay the first two I'll take the plunge. That's not happening any time soon.

Got Blood 2 running with a controller. Last time I played this the game was incredibly buggy. I was using a mod, though. Installed a different one, one that's sort of new, so I hope this runs well & fixes the vanilla product's faults.

I'd actually say DON'T play it immediately after the first two... they retconned the shit out of the story, and so far it's not even a little scary despite having the best graphics of the series. I'd probably enjoy this a lot more if I didn't think of it as a Dead Space game.

I'm still waiting for someone to give me a well-deserved pantsing for the way I can't shut up about Dead Space now after I spent probably two years bitching about the first game on here and trying to convince everyone that it was shitty and overrated.

just, whatever you do, don't listen to anybody who tells you to play DS3 co-op. game is broken as fuck in co-op, and i don't mean bugs. i mean, i don't think it was actually made to be played that way.
if there's anybody in the world who'd be fucking unobservant enough to actually damage themselves with trap-soap I guess it'd be the guy with dialup in 2007

Motion controls are an abomination. I can't think of one single Wii, Kinect, or Dualshock motion control anything that I thought " I'm so glad this is motion controlled ". I guess some of the casual stuff like Wii sports is cute. Cute is for the kids and my over weight uncle in-law.

I can only imagine what a carnival of horrors that would be like to use while drunk.


Found some interesting mods for Unreal Gold, like being able to us the Unreal Tournament '99 weapons, and such. One of them was the lightsabre mod, which I think I used back in 1999. If it's the same thing, it pretty much turns you into God Mode, and you just wreak shit. I'm okay with this. I'm really really okay with this.

They're still moving on that thing and from what everyone says it's pretty fucking awesome. The dudes at Giant Bomb are true believers among others who all say, "This is what we've always wanted in VR". And they got Jon fucking Carmack in on it-- if someone can make that thing even more awesome it's him.
Yeah, I'm still mildly curious about that. I don't think there will ever not be a market for gaming with your ass sat down in front of a screen and pressing buttons on something, and motion controls are deader than I would've expected, if anything. The Oculus Rift won't replace it either, but a lot of the right people seem to be excited about it, so maybe it'll just become a new thing that coexists with old-fashioned gaming, like mobile games or MMOs.
