playing GOWII again before tomorrow, riding Pegasus through the night while slaying Gryphons by dismembering their wings is still one of the best moments ever

christ mallard, did you real all the CYOA books cover-to-cover?


fuck no, I just cheated. Those books sucked anyway.

And I was including games like Fallout 3 & KOTOR in that sweeping categorization...
Although games like KOTOR & Infamous that are meant to be played aligned to "good" or "evil", and give you different skills depending on your alignment usually merit a 2nd play through.

Infamous doesn't even deserve a full playthrough. That game got tedious as hell about 2/3 of the way through. Loads of potential and lazy execution.

My GOW III is backordered.... :( Good thing I'll have a censored version of Yakuza 3 to tide me over.

i thought infamous was pretty fun for what it was. it definitely was repeating itself too much in the missions by the end, no doubt, but the climbing controls were great and grinding on powerlines while blasting haters was a blast.

More bosses, one less neighborhood to clear out, less shitty characters, and more ambiguous moral choices and I'd like the game a lot more.

Not sure if it has been discussed in here, but if you have XBLA, get Toy Soldiers. Game fucking rules!

Also going to stick up for Infamous. Never got tired of tooling across the city, clearing shit out. And compared to what I'm slogging through now (FF13), the characters are fucking amazing.

infamous was extremely overrated.

controls were average at best and a lot of it seemed pretty janky.

Thank christ for that, plus I have Return to Ostagar to check out.

...the expansion is being released on the ps3 the same day as the 360/pc right?

I believe so. Bioware's really been dropping the ball ball ball with DA on the PS3.

I get out of work a little early, my kid is with my parents for the week, and my wife doesn't get home till after 8pm for once, so I've got a solid four hours or so to myself to play games on a Tuesday evening, a very rare rarity of rareness.

More Mass Effect 2?
FEAR 2?
Bad Company 2?
God of War 3?

What a web of intrigue. I think the best bet is to try and finish Bad Company 2 like I said I would. I would have said fuck all that shit and continued on my ME2 way, but the planet mining is becoming a bit of a chore. MUST I mine these planets?

Pretty sure I'll throw that God of War III in for a spin.... never finished GOW I nor played any of GOW II, but I guess story wise I can fill in the blanks myself, let me guess, Kratos very angry at Gods, want kill Gods, Kratos SMASH puny Gods.

I played through Infamous twice back to back to get the good and bad ending. The copy/paste side missions got pretty repetitive after a while, but it's not like you had to do them, and they were a nice diversion every now and then. It seemed to have higher ambitions than just being a fun action game with a cool story, but that's all it was to me and it did that just fine and dandy.

Virtual Console

CASTLEVANIA RONDO OF BLOOD
Original platform: TurboGrafx16 CD-ROM
Publisher: Konami
Players: 1
ESRB Rating: T (Teen) – Animated Blood, Fantasy Violence
Price: 900 Wii Points
Description: This is the 10th action-packed installment in the ever-popular CASTLEVANIA series, which depicts the epic struggle between the Belmont clan and the dark forces of Count Dracula. An instant classic, this title is recognized far and wide for its beautifully rendered world, outstanding game balance and haunting CD-quality music. The player takes control of RICHTER, the clan's ultimate Vampire Killer, guiding him through a total of nine stages filled with treacherous traps and hidden secrets. Using your legendary whip – passed on from generations of Belmonts – and a powerful selection of Item Crash attacks, it's up to you to destroy Dracula and his evil horde. What's more, rescuing MARIA at some juncture in the game allows you to use her as a playable character for even more vampire-slaying fun.


Fuck. I've been wanting to play this for 15 years, even tried to compile the games ISO files to play on my computer (which, I found I don't have enough geek knowledge in me to do). Too bad XBLA didn't snag this one up .....

Never played it, reviews made it look severely flawed.

Prototype has faster, crazier action and cooler weapons. Infamous has a better presentation and a slightly better plot. Both games have bland, gruff voiced heroes and terrible side characters. I'd rate them about even, probably 6-7/10. Blood and gore = Prototype, superhero = Infamous.

Picked up the Awakening expansion, 45 dollars seems awfully steep. After that, the game and the add ons...pricey business.

my ladyfriend likes Dragon Age so much that she's already promised to buy Awakening plus any more expansions that come out 8) from watching her play (like 150 hours at this point) I realized that DA is a fucking HARD game to platinum. I think you need 3 complete playthroughs just for the level 20 trophies, ugh.

Doesn't Prototype rely on the fighting game combat system of button mashing to string combos together?

I was stoked for Prototype, but when they never offered a demo, I waited, read reviews, and ended up w/ Infamous instead.

Prototype was a really gory, fun game. I loved it. The fighting system was more button combinations for special moves rather than button mashing, and there are a TON special moves. I especially loved the one that throws like a hundred tendrils all around you covering an entire city intersection, impaling enemies and civilians alike. Gliding around the city, hopping from building to building, running down the street throwing traffic to either side in your wake... man, I just wish it was longer and had an extra city to run around in or something. The city available is pretty big but I just wanted MORE. I think the reviews didn't do it justice.

fucking prototype gets tedious after the first 5 hours of buttonmashing your way through hordes of unlimited enemies...

Yeah, I'd say both of them scored about evenly because there are things that Prototype does way better on with some things and Infamous does better with on other things.

For my tastes, I personally enjoy Prototype more. I just felt more badass in general. And I think the enemies in Infamous are really boring as are the stupid "comic book cutscenes".
