Just shows how different peoples tastes can be.
I thought Saints Row The Third was the best in the series, and a much more fun game then ME3.

Though, comparing those two is a pretty big reach. It's like comparing Skyrim to Bulletstorm.

I think most people can agree that aside from the last 20 minutes, Mass Effect 3 was a great game. Although I know why the last 20 minutes didn't make sense, but I won't discuss it here.

I really like Bulletstorm alot. I'll be playingt that until the end once I finish ME3 tonight.

and I guess I shouldn't bash Saints Row 3 until I actually play it awhile.
Although I wish jumping out of the Aircraft, and the following bank robbery were both horrible.

Mass Effect 3 (minus the ending) was an okay game. A definite step back from the previous two in terms of gameplay and story telling. Not a bad game, but not as good as the games that came before it.

Okay, but in my eyes, far from great.

That was exactly what really bothers me - perhaps it's a good game when compared to other games - but since it's a Mass Effect game, I had certain expectations... It was not nearly as immersive, and it felt short in gameplay and by the time I was halfway, the dialog cuts just got annoying. I don't remember that happening at all with the previous ME games.

Finished Resident Evil 5
Enjoyed it very much. Some amazing boss fights (especially the last) and very well done cutscenes. Playing it on Rogue, the AI for Sheva really isn't all that bad. She eats ammo and is sometimes too eager to use health items, but she's definitely good in combat. Looking forward to a co-op playthrough, but by the time that happens there might not be many people still interested.

I'm also replaying one of my all-time favourite shooters - Project I.G.I.
It became unplayable for users on WinXP, but a dedicated Russian fan managed to find the problem and released a fix a little less than two years ago. Classic old-school difficulty - no saves. I'm going in!

Diablo 3: Continuing on my suicide mission through Act 2 of Inferno. Can't wait for the patch when they normalize the damage and health. Some of these mobs hit you for 50,000 damage. I only have around 30,000 health. I'm not a tank though, so that's normal.

In my opinion no, its the same engine and all but there are no beautiful landscapes like the original, but it's still a good looking game.

Yeah, it seemed like SR:TT was almost going to be the GTA IV killer in terms of sandbox games out there. You had better customization, the gameplay and graphics almost looked spot on, you had different paths in terms of some of the missions, so it was all well and good. Plus with the Season Pass DLC, it seems like those make the game even more enjoyable. So I agree with this 100%, way way better than the crappy SR2 port that was put out there.

Reason I quoted this, played through a few activities just a moment ago, especially my favorite, Insurance Fraud. Been my favorite ever since the first Saints Row.

It was awesome, thought, I can see the reason why people complain that it is too serious, but I really liked the style. I'm glad not all the GTA's are the same :3 , so all of them are still unique in their own way.

Nothing almost about it. Saints Row: The Third is miles above and beyond GTA4.
GTA4 is boring as hell, the writing and story are underwhelming and the characters are either annoying or horribly cliched. The game just isn't fun.

SR3 is fun. A lot of fun. Stupid yes, childish... at times... but simple, stupid fun is still fun.

Mafia II kicks ass. I bought so many suits.

Finished Project IGI last night. I have terrible memories of the last level and surprise, surprise it took me 7 frustrating tries to beat. 20 minutes to get through the level without any trouble only to keep dying or failing to protect Anya in the last room.

Giving my PC a rest, so I've started Tenchu: Wrath of Heaven.
First taste of the Tenchu series. The stealth is already pretty great. Poison rice balls, haha...awesome!

The Secret World

Blue screen of death mode

They are doing a free weekend for this MMO game - the animations are stiff and unpolished, and the HUD just seems wonky. I guess I should have expected this from "beta"

I have an old school cheap C-Media chipset generic sound card because it's actually far superior to my on-board Realtek sound. 5 minutes into the game my machine halts and reboots the system, making a sharp chattering into my headphones and throwing an error on a call to a COM.

I can't even remember ever getting a blue screen on this machine before.

Next week they'll be charging people money to beta test for them. OK, Funcom - there's a lot of better MMOs out there

It's typical for MMOs - I call it charging for Beta - they call it early access to all beta testing (most weekends) with your pre-order.

It's a good way to get pre-order money. These games drop price faster than regular games because they make revenue on subscriptions. Pay full price now and you can beta test before the monthly fee kicks in.

...and yes, it's evil.

I've only experienced 1 story arc. ME3 is the first game where I really wanted to see what "would have happened" if I played it differently. I know that's what they were going for, but I'm usually not looking to replay games right after finishing them. I like the old ones just because I want to do it all over again years later. Even the other ME games didn't bring me back right away.

Yep, I did see that trend going into the game, I was only able to get so far, then I had to hold up the white flag after that. MP2 was certainly a lot easier to get through.

Played me some more Saints Row The Third, and doing a couple of activities, and just taking down a few cops here and there.

Re: What was the last game you played Pt 28?
Serious Sam 3. Finished it and loved the gameplay. Blowing enemies up with rockets or C4 charges has never been more satisfying. Minigun, C4 charges and the rocket launcher rocks, the assault rifle's clip is too small, constant reloading isn't fun. Using melee attacks on enemies is great, killing a lot of large spiders by melee without getting hit yourself saves ammo and increases ego! Laser gun and sniper rifle are present in several levels but hidden which is too bad as they are quite useful as well as powerful. Word is that these two got added in the last moment due to them being fan favourites thus only appearing as secret weapons.

The only real downside to me is the leveldesign that's rather void of variety. City levels are quite generic and the desert/pyramid ones are nothing but beige of colour with too much empty simplistic structures. Croteam can do better then this. The last level is not surprising if you know the previous games, end battle can be frustrating at first because the game doesn't tell you how to defeat the end boss as there's a trick involved (it always is).

Music is top notch as always, in particular, the track "Hero" (vocals version) is my personal favourite (it plays during credits rolling). More content is on his way for this game and I'll be sure to get it though, I enjoyed it enough for that.

GTA4 logic in Mafia 2. The Wanted status disappeared as soon as I reached an objective (Joe's apartment), though me and the pursuing cop car were still in the driveway.

Lol... I've been playing Mafia 2 as well. On chapter 10, hard difficulty, not that hard though.

I like the main characters. Gotta admit I got a soft spot on games and movies based on the early decades of the 20th Century, such as Bioshock, this game and L.A. Noire which I haven't played, yet :P, but it's a priority.

Only 5 chapters to go.

Tenchu: Wrath of Heaven
I've only completed the first four missions with Ayame because I find myself replaying each mission until I get the 'Grand Master' ranking. The quantity and quality of rewards by doing so makes it entirely worth it.

I'm also about 6 hours into Bulletstorm.
Having an absolute blast, but wow are the skillshots distracting. I'm constantly checking the database instead of soaking in the presentation of this awesome game. I've passed the 50% mark of the database and am just starting Act 5. "WHAT THE DICK!?!"

Also mixing in a little Dustforce. I can't believe some of the record times people are posting on Youtube. INSANE!!

Bulletstorm is one of the best games I've played in a long time - I'd call it underrated even though it had a good reception.

Just beat Infamous 2. I'm not very thrilled with the ending. As with a lot of games I've played lately, it seemed rushed, not thought out very well, and just unsatisfying. It was an awesome game, and the story itself was great, but it deserved more in the end.

SPORE

It's great LOL

Just got it free through ORIGIN - EA's digital distribution system - some kind of Origin's anniversary celebration thing

I already have a bunch of games in my account, some from Amazon.com including ME3 in April for $30
This came in my email today:

1. Log in to the Origin gaming app from your desktop.

2. Use the search bar to choose your favorite game from
Dragon Age: Origins, Battlefield: Bad Company 2, and Spore.

3. Add the game to your cart.

4. Scroll to the bottom of the page, click “Enter Promo Code” and enter the following promo code: f4pu2p4rg2bffp.

• I do not know if this code was a one-time use code - it may not work for you or for new members
• The code does not work in your regular browser - I tried - you need to purchase the game and enter the code from within the store in the Origin application - (just like the Steam Store) - I got Spore for free because I already had the other two.
