Re: Kinect

I played it at a friend's house with five women who don't game. They were all hesitant in trying it out, but after my first embarrassing turn at "Dance Central," I couldn't tear them away from it.

Re: Vanquish!

Li Ion, play the challenge mode after. It is brutal. I have only had time to beat the first challenge level, but the sense of reward after toppling it is immense. Your ability to use the meter will...

Re: I'm giving Rockstar one more chance

Don't worry. I did the same the second time I played through it. So yeah, you don't miss much. I definitely did it during the final long trek to so and so's headquarters.

Re: I'm giving Rockstar one more chance

Glad you enjoyed it! I agree about the horse-riding conversations. Thankfully a good number of them can be skipped as long as you're a passenger on a stagecoach.

But it is definitely one of the...

Re: I'm giving Rockstar one more chance

I dunno. Given today's capabilities that ensure almost no one is anonymous, I find it more believable in a Western, non-tech setting than in a city that's supposedly as advanced as Liberty City.

Re: I'm giving Rockstar one more chance

That's one of my biggest peeves with Bioware games, starting back with KOTOR. As you near the end of the game, you've pretty much obliterated everyone that could possibly be obliterated. The action...

Re: I'm giving Rockstar one more chance

Oh and to answer your question in the other thread about RDR, random encounters DO respawn. You do get randomly attacked by gunslingers as well as wildlife (not all wildlife attack you, not even the...

Re: I'm giving Rockstar one more chance

This.

A game that does this would replace RDR as my favorite game of all time. After a hard day at work, I fire up the Xbox and Batman, slip on my headphones, put on a playlist of my favorite...

Re: I'm giving Rockstar one more chance

I know there's been some post-mortem backpedaling on GTA4, but you will hear none from me.

Before RDR, GTA4 was my favorite game of this current generation, and my second favorite out of this past...

Re: I'm giving Rockstar one more chance

Just my two cents: Red Dead Redemption is my favorite game of all time.

It has its flaws, many outlined in wonderful prose in Sparky's review. But for a guy who likes to make his own fun, RDR has...

Re: Bayonetta

Gay icon is precisely how I see Bayonetta, and I totally allude to it in my (forthcoming) review. Totally with you on that tip.

I was a bit disappointed there was no "cock" wicked weave move to be...

Re: 5 most painful minutes of gaming ever

How does she fit in? She's a standard 3-D brawler, yes, but characterized without inhibition, like a Blazblue/Darkstalker fighter.

Again, I agree this game isn't for everyone. And I'm not...

Although I will admit: there's still a big part of me that wishes that the game features more conventional character design. THe game's overall outlandish style may be impenetrable for some, which is...

Re: 5 most painful minutes of gaming ever

Really? You talk about being tired of cliches and yet Bayonetta fits in with that?

I'm on like my fifth playthru of Bayonetta. It's not a 10, so I agree that it is overrated.

What I disagree...

Re: YOUR games of the decade?

I'm pleasantly surprised to see Metal Gear Solid 2 get plenty of love in the end of the decade lists.

As crazy as that game was, it was a controlled type of chaos that served a specific purpose....

YOUR games of the decade?

Not an overall objective game of the decade crowning, but what games do YOU remember most fondly since 2000? Doesn't have to be 10.

I found that my best games are found in the last gen. The...

Re: Did the Beatles bomb with the video game generation?

I'm also the second or third biggest Beatlemaniac I know, and I haven't bought the game either.

I played it, and it was a very well done product. But I don't feel my fandom for the Beatles needs...

Re: God Hand rules

I just beat it last night. The ending credit song just bowled me over. It's the best anime-parody rock song since South Park's "Let's Fighting Love."

What a great game.

I do wish that the L2...

God Hand rules

Just wanted to say that, since I know this community has many admirers of that game.

I picked it up when it first came out and it didn't click. It's even less accessible than Demon's Souls. At...

Re: Assassin's Creed II

The game is incredible and it's my favorite game of the year. If you kinda liked the first one but felt the shitty parts were too much for you, then get this one. It doesn't have any shitty parts...

Re: The Masturbatory OMG Modern Warfare 2 Thread

Try giving a few rounds of Spec Ops a try, but only in cooperative. In terms of coop gameplay, no other game is as inspiring or given to those high 5 moments.

But yes, the general multiplayer is...

Re: The Masturbatory OMG Modern Warfare 2 Thread

I think the comparison is rather fair, and it's one that Infinity Ward invites upon itself. The developers and Activision both tout the game as a cinematic experience, not a military shooting...

Re: The Masturbatory OMG Modern Warfare 2 Thread

Well yeah. As far as multiplayer goes, MW2 remains tops. Like I said, it all fits like a glove.

Modern Warfare 2's multiplayer levels and gameplay carries itself with confidence and distinction....
