I downloaded the 1st episode from the psn. It was interesting. They´re around episode 4 right now. Have to get a psn card and see about playing the rest.

TWD has some of the most effective moral choices in a game, simply because the entire experience is just an adventure game filled with moral choices. It's pretty much a complete tear down of the outdated and frankly awkward model Bioware has pushed for years.

My understanding is the game can change highly based on the choices you make. Certain characters make it and some don't. So I am looking forward to playing it more then once.

The new X-Com has me in its hooks. The original is my favorite video game ever and this one has a ton of promise. I'm only about 2 hours in so we'll see how it holds up for an entire playthrough.

So XCOM is bloody amazing.

Dishonored is also bloody amazing.

The Walking Dead episode 4 comes out tomorrow, and it's probably going to be bloody amazing.

And yet... possible GOTY is next week:

My coworker has been telling me to play the original for a while now. I'll probably get both and see what I've been missing.

There's no real need to get the original. This is coming from someone who considers it one of the greatest games ever made. The new version is practically a full remake, but with elegantly simplified combat. The cover system alone is enough to change the face of turn-based squad games.

As for Dishonored... Do you like Bioshock and Thief, but with a greater emphasis on Thief? Paint it in steampunk acrylics and that's Dishonored. It's excellent.

Thief is so great. I've been wishing for a stealth game on that level for years.

I've been waiting for a game like this... similar to Eve Online, but closer to a AAA title.
I like the funding idea, and its very lofty goals. (Helluva lot more cash than your typical indie game that's crowd funded)

You and I both. It's a hard balance to hit, action vs stealth, and even stealth based games (Splinter Cell series) don't hit it perfectly.

Very cool. I haven't seen this before.

X-Com owns. Minor control/camera issues aside, it is a kick-ass game. Best of the year so far for me.
post #3239 of 4228
I"m thinking of buying it (Xcom) for PC unless you guys think console is easier because of the controls..

Definately pulling the trigger on MOH Warfigther - I've been loving the beta.
