Haha! Good one JD. Careful with taking the move controller to bed. Might get mistaken for a different kind of uhhh... toy....
Picked up Need For Speed the Run. Started playing, pretty disapointing. Have since put back in Saints Row the third and am going through the second playthrough. Much more fulfilling of a game
BTW: Still playing Rocksmith. Still enhancing my guitar skills. I am not disapointed with this game at all. Highly recomended to guitarists (and inspiring guitarists) Of all skill levels
lol @Ninjazz, true. She use to call herself a video game widow, I hate to become a Move widower.
Finally plat'd, one of the best games I ever played turned into one of the most annoying games I ever plat'd
I never did manage platinuming Heavy Rain. came close. Always meant to. Never came back to it. Cool concept, good story, neat game though. I did thououghly enjoy it.
Lately have lost myself in Just Cause 2. Didnt think it would be my style of game, but am actually quite surprised and delighted with how entertaining it has turned out to be. I acutually showed it to my Dad (almost 60 year old non gamer, unless you count wii titles ;) and he Loved it. He spent a few hours popping in and out of helicopters and planes, blowing stuff up and just flying around. Was pretty rad to see :D
Mass Effect 3 Duh! ;)
Not Mass Effect 3. I've gone on a personal boycott of the game because of the demo and drama surrounding the game. I was not happy with the last one, and they did not fix any of the 'mistakes' that I believe were made in the second game. I wanted a BioWare RPG, not a an EPIC shooter.
I bought that other "big" RPG that released this week, Tales of Graces f, and I'm thoroughly enjoying it so far. I've been craving to play some of that "classic" JRPG again. And I'm with Casey, but my boycott started with #2 lol.
OK so I'm not exactly playing it but The Mrs. got me Mass Effect 3, even though I never played 1 or 2. I was interested in it until I read & watched about the drama Casey mentioned. (yea I don't care about spoilers lol) including a very interesting but boring 32 minute video on youtube. I'm not gonna boycott the game because I did sign a boatload of online petitions for EA to fix the crap with ME3 so what I do want to know is do I need to play the 1st two to understand what's going on in 3? (yea, I'm crossing the boycott line)
I never played the first, I started with the second.
Although it will never be in my top 10 games of all time, I admitedly did enjoy it and played through it a few times (would have even had a platinum trophy for it, if it weren't for the impossibility that was Insanity difficulty)
Keep in mind, with that being said, I hate shooters, avoiding them whenever possible. First person, third person, doesnt matter, they just dont usually do it for me. So that being said, even though ME2 was mostly a third person shooter wrapped in the guise of an RPG, it still throughouly entertained me. I enjoyed the characters, I mostly enjoyed the storyline and tone (although there were many blatant rip offs of Battlestar) and I even enjoyed the gameplay.
HOWEVER.... Mass effect 3 just isnt doing it for me. Granted I came into it wary, as I had already been burned by EA/Bioware hardcore with their severly disapointing release of Dragon Age 2 awhile back (Yes I am still seething about that one :S) but I wanted to give it a chance. Despite the drama, despite the crap demo, and despite the fact they were forcing you to play the tacked on crappy multiplayer in order to truly complete the game/trophies.....(not a lot bugs me more... not everyone is a multiplayer fan... some of it are still in it for the solo gaming experience ;)
Anywho, I started playing it, and it felt very familiar... Almost like an ME2 expansion pack... But it also felt like it was missing..... something... Im almost 50% of the way through now,my goal is to still complete it, but lately something weird has happened to me. I get home from work, I sit down in my man cave, boot everything up, and find myself doing everything but turning on Mass effect 3. I check my facebook, I go play around with youtube videos for a bit, I check my favorite video game site (shogungamer of course) and I click the stumblepon button until its too late to start a mission (Such as the case now).
Its weird, my full intention every time is to play mass effect, but everytime i subconciously distract myself with anything but,,,,
Its not that the game is horrible or anything (Ive played many much worse for much longer), its just... not.... captivating....
Now I have to beat it. I promised myself I wouldnt buy another game until I did, but Im sort of regretting that deal with myself.... For the first time in a long time, my playstation and I are becoming strangers.... I dont like that...
Maybe I should just throw skyrim in again and get that last bloody trophy I have been putting off. ;)
