Re: Post here when you beat a game. I mean it!

Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story(DS) - Great game, just long. I'm back-and-forth with games that take more than 10 hours to complete. I enjoy them, but sometimes I feel like I am missing out on other games when I devote so much time to one game.

Re: Post here when you beat a game. I mean it!

I finished the main quest in Skyrim, for what it's worth. Just trying to tidy up a few of the pesky achievements (Oblivion Walker, I hate you).

I need to finish out the rest of the Fallout: NV DLC, then I'm off to either Skyward Sword or Arkham City.

Metroid: Other M (Wii) - a decent game that tries really hard to not want to be played. Stupid choice of controls is probably why this game didn't do better on the sales front.

Re: Post here when you beat a game. I mean it!

Shot myself through the singleplayer campaign of Modern Warfare 3. Some levels I really enjoyed (the plane is a personal highlight), while others were just the same old formula again. I didn't buy it for the singleplayer campaign, but for the spec-ops mode, so this was just a bonus.

Finished Hunted Demons forge last night. It was not that bad gameplay is a bit too repetitive, melee combat is bleh, didn't care for the enchanted weapons wish they did them more like Daiblo. But all in all it was neat enough to keep me interested.

Re: Post here when you beat a game. I mean it!

Burn the Rope
Actually not done with the entirety of it since it is sort of a freemium game. But the "demo" portion was already quite extensive, half the game and i can still play a new level each day.
Tap a rope to start a fire and then turn the phone to "steer" it upwards. By adding color coded fire and its corresponding ropes, spiders (creating a rope when dying) and bugs (which create a lightning when burned) to bridge your fire to somewhere else, it has not only a very simple concept and controls but it gets quite complex in the later levels, where you have to chain various colors and "jump" between rope combinations.
If their wouldn't be enough other free stuff to check out i guess i would buy "flames", the in game currency, to unlock it fully.

EDGE
I loved RUSH and i liked the demo of Edge, but i bought it primarily because of the first pro argument expecting it to be similarly good, ending up being disappointed after the first levels.
After readjusting my expectations it got better but never real good.
The whole edging mechanic, hanging on some (moving) edge, and how the cubes have to be controlled albeit feeling pretty natural/realistic never felt really fun, more of a annoyance in maneuvering smoothly.
Although being disappointed i think it is worth the money.

One note since i played it also on my recently acquired notebook:
One certain trick is impossible with it. The intel driver, game itself, integrated gpu power, keyboard... something is just not working fast enough.
Should not happen with a game that looks like it ought run on a '90s computer.

Ran through Shoot 1UP yesterday on "Chill" difficulty. What a great way to spend $1 on gaming.

Re: Post here when you beat a game. I mean it!

Finished Portal 2 single player. It was pretty good, and some of the dialogue made me laugh out loud. It's an excellent game to dip into, and I'm looking forward to the co-op aspect down the road.

It also has a fantastically surreal ending which was delightful. Recommended.

Re: Post here when you beat a game. I mean it!

QWOP - 2.7 metres; annoying!

In other news...

Tantara! Fanfaron!

Got the Platinum in Dark Souls this morning, my last act being to chop off poor Priscilla's tail. 191 hours played, level 133.

Favourite weapon Fire Murakumo +10 (pictured):



Overall, a great game. I am starting to think it is better than Demon's Souls. gasp!

Would recommend it to everyone, by the way. Don't be put off by reports of excessive difficulty. It's a pussycat, really.
