HIGH Being invisible is a great idea for a main character.
LOW The gameplay is too basic to be enjoyable.
WTF The ending feels like a copout.

Anyway, 2013 is a strange year. It's now October, and ordinarily I'd be up to my neck in review games at this time, but I'm actually drifting between assignments with nothing really due… I'm never one to look a gift horse in the mouth, though, so I decided to jump into a few things that have been lingering on the backlog.

A Wolf in Man's Clothing
HIGH An urban fantasy detective story? Yay!
LOW Slow loading and framerate chugging with a game like this? Really?
WTF How in the world are they going to resolve this cliffhanger?!?

Is It XCOM? No. Is It Great? Yes!
HIGH Fantastic style and a great story with genuine surprises.
LOW Brutal starting difficulty. The endgame has too many mobs.
WTF Finishing only one investigation short of a perfect run!

Less than Meeeeeowgical
HIGH Great "theatrical" premise.
LOW Finding out the heads aren't good for much.
WTF Stellar voice actors are wasted on a bland, tiresome script.

HIGH Martial arts and music are a great fit.
LOW Starts to feel repetitive way too soon.
WTF Mei's story has all the songs unlocked from the start?

So although I completed the review for Defiance a while ago, it's a pretty big game apart from it being an MMO. I didn't have time to complete the campaign when I was submitting the review, but now that I've had a little bit of free time in my schedule, I was eager to get back to it. I'm happy to say that I finally completed the campaign, and that the game is 100% solo-able. In fact, it's maybe a little too solo...

A Grand Scheme
HIGH The drive from Blaine County back to Los Santos, and seeing the skyline for the first time. It was only then that I began to grasp just how much larger the map was compared to any other game.
LOW Trevor and Michael fighting over the same thing for the fifteenth time.
WTF First-person doggystyle. It'll make you laugh.

What have I been playing? I just completed The Bureau: XCOM Declassified, and much like Lost Planet 3, it's another great game which started off with a few strikes against it, and as far as I can tell, apparently everyone on earth has now forgotten that it exists.

A Family Man, a Long Way from Home
HIGH Realizing the game wasn't going to warp my mech up a mountain.
LOW The unclear, frustrating first use of the claw winch.
WTF "Stay alive?" Nooooo, the actual objective is "fix miniguns."
