I hated it, too many unskippable, boring, meaningless cinematics: I feel like I have been spending a third of gameplay time watching a (very) bad movie than actually playing.

Not to mention the actual gameplay "interludes" were plotless cover shooting.

ME1 was good, ME2 had a nice balance of storytelling/action, ME3 broke that balance because they wanted to make a movie and not a game.

So E3 is coming up and I plan to be a lazy fat-ass and sit at home all day and watch it while eating pizza icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I got Max Payne 3 for the PC. I pre-ordered it so I could get MP1 and MP2 for free on Steam.

Everyone is having problems playing this game. The steam forum for it has exploded with random hotfixs and complaints. I was not able to even get to the main menu once I installed it, but was able to get past it after some tinkering. The game starts, and always crashes right as the opening cut scene ends and I'm able to play.

I cleared all of Friday night for this game and was not able to play it.

Epic Games is salvaging a lot of the 38 Studios employees:

Curt Schilling was always a small government conservative, so it's pretty sickening that he would use so much state money to fund his own business then lose it all.

New Wii U controller. This looks hopeful.

It's too bad about the technical problems (and lousy checkpointing system). I had severe crashing issues. I powered through it to finish it. It's easily one of my favorite AAA rollercoaster shootfests. Outpaces the last two Max Paynes and Uncharted 2. Multi is pretty boss, too.

I watched all of E3. Everything is horrible (except Ubisoft, somehow the French Canadians saved the day) but still, MS sucks, Nintendo sucks, Sony sucks (not as much, but what does that really matter).

I've yet to check any of it. They say Dead Space 3 could be cool. Given my sound design fetish, Death Shot likey.

post #3160 of 4219
I don't really like the steps they've taken. Dead Space was never primarily focused on the survival horror aspect of it, but they seemed to have thrown it out the window with this sequel (co-op, universal ammo, human enemies, etc) and from the demo there really wasn't any of that suspense present in the first few games. I'm not going write it off entirely based on the couple minute demo, but to me it's looking bleak. They did nail the first two games though, so I'll keep waiting to see what they put out based on that. I don't remember what was said about the sound design though.

I'm probably exaggerating it, but still, makes me not want to tune in next year.

Good: Last of Us, Watch Dogs, South Park RPG, Assassin's Creed 3, Beyond Two Souls, Dishonored, Star Wars 1313.

Survival Horror seems neglected to start with. I mean, Resident Evil has become nothing but an action franchise at this point defined by its limitations on movement. Don't get me wrong, I like to play strategically and manage resources, but it makes it even more intense within a horror format. That's what made games like Fatal Frame and Clocktower so good... Limitation on action and feeling susceptible instead of like a tank.

 

 

 

Has anybody played Amnesia: Dark Descent?

post #3162 of 4219
Amnesia is an excellent game. All atmospherics, no combat, and a clever central mechanic regarding light and shadow. The studio's previous game series, Penumbra, was pretty solid as well.

Lone Survivor is a recent genre homage in 2d that's also pretty awesome.
post #3163 of 4219
Speaking of RE, the RE6 demo was atrocious. They said that Leon's campaign was supposed to be the survival horror section. I guess survival horror involves shooting zombies that die in one hit then a canned action sequence where you out run a giant explosion to leap onto a helicopter.

Also excited for Amensia: A Pig for Machines. Being made with the people behind Dear Esther. Should be incredible.

Looking forward to the new God of War, new Tomb Raider, and the new Dead Space.

Also looking forward to Aliens: Colonial Marines and Last of Us.

I am really looking forward to Elder Scrolls Online. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif
