Pretty much. There was a brief period after Dead Rising came out when devs cared about standard def TVs, but I think it's assumed everyone has at least one by now.

Just buy a damn HDTV. I got a modest one when I was testing crappy 2K Sports games for minimum wage, for god's sake.

I wish they'd given a better tutorial for the horse controls, though. I kept running people over and stuff because I didn't know how to break. I also rode my horse off a cliff, fell 60 or so feet, then got up and walked it off like a boss.

Oh, and being drunk doesn't last long enough.

The greatest thing you can do in that game is set up on a ridge with a sniper rifle and shoot peoples horses as they ride by. Its a special kind of joy you can't get anywhere else.

I gave Super Monday Night Combat a shot.

The PC version doesn't have dedicated servers and for some reason I had to wait about 15 minutes before I even joined a match. Someone needs to tell developers that matchmaking systems are in place because consoles are limited pieces of shit, not because it's an inherently superior way to format online multiplayer. They need to be told very, very loudly. At least they had the decency to build a chatroom into the game's main menu so I could complain and swear about it at everyone else.

When I finally did start playing, I found out that they basically took the original Monday Night Combat, and ruined it. I'm not even being a "CHANGE ARE BAD" fanboy here, I hate Monday Night Combat, but it was more polished, balanced, fast-paced, fun, comprehensible, had better graphics, and the announcer was actually funny; the new guys vocalize color commentary like they're describing the drying paint on the wall in front of them. Bottom line is that the original is a shooter with DotA/LoL/Whatever elements, while the new game is a DotA/LoL/Whatever with really bad shooter elements.

I suppose I should have known something was up when they released it for free.

darkvare Apr 21st, 2012 07:31 PM

they did posted they had some issues with the match making i tried after a couple of patches it and took 15 seconds to get in a match

Mad Melvin Apr 22nd, 2012 05:53 AM

Just tried the new Sniper Elite V2 demo. Looks like SoF2 met it's match in the gore department.

Zomboid Apr 22nd, 2012 09:07 PM

Silent Hill HD. It's A-OK!

Guitar Woman Apr 23rd, 2012 02:27 PM

Finally gave Valkyria Chronicles a shot past the first mission. The story is goofy and full of terribly paced and edited JRPG dialogue, and you could take about half the lines and splice them into a porn film while remaining completely in-context. But.

The actual game? It's awesome. It's so awesome. I fucking love it and ended up playing it all night.

I don't remember the last time I had this much fun with a strategy game; probably when I played Fire Emblem 1 and had to find out what all the japanese menu commands did through trial and error, rivers running red with the blood of my senselessly sacrificed goons who walked by scooting along on one leg and dragging the other. It's a hell of a lot better than Final Fantasy Tactics, for sure.

Dimnos Apr 23rd, 2012 09:21 PM

VC was terribly addicting. Pissed me off all the sequels are on psp.

Phoenix Gamma Apr 23rd, 2012 11:25 PM

I didn't mind VC's story until the supernatural race got involved. It's like...fucking Japan, can't you do ANYTHING without some kind of magical shit? Stop that.

3 actually looked really good, but we'll never see it because we knew better than to buy that shitty second one.

OxBlood Apr 25th, 2012 04:37 AM

I should be finished with Prototype 2 soon. Rather short game but very satisfying and more polished than the first one.

I´m still in the third Tower in Pandora´s Tower but I kinda like the game, it´s a nice mix of different things we´ve seen before like Rygar, Zelda and maybe a bit of Castlevania...

I also tried out the Dragon´s Dogma Demo yesterday. About how I expected it to be, the Warrior was rather boring but the Strider was fun, shooting down a huge Griffon and stuff like that. Really looking forward to it, besides Diablo 3 my most anticipated game of the year now that Amalur is out of the way.

Pentegarn Apr 25th, 2012 11:53 AM

Been messing with Dead Island, and I like some aspects (combat and the way zombies can get the drop on you are good, plenty of side quests) while some things I am not sold on yet (repair costs rivaling buying new gear, feels too much like GTA with zombies)

kahljorn Apr 25th, 2012 12:44 PM

what system are you playing on?

Zomboid Apr 25th, 2012 06:32 PM

Just finished SH2, then did sort of a speed run on it and beat it in around 2 hours and 45 minutes. I like that it also included the sub-scenario from the Xbox version, though I can see people losing their shit if it didn't, and there's apparently been a lot of backlash anyway.

Onto SH3.

Guitar Woman Apr 26th, 2012 12:45 AM

I played Journey tonight!

I think it's pretty much the shortest game I've ever played (like an hour and a half long), but it was also really awesome.

I do have one really big main grievance about it, though, which is that it reveals your companion's gamertag at the end. I was completely ready to just go, "man, it's so depressing that I'll never know who that extremely bossy pal of mine really was, we totally went through FEELINGS together at that mountain part!" and go on imagining what kind of superstar tag-team friendship we could have had, but then it totally tells you who they are, and then comes the friend request. I have a crippling phobia of my fellow human being and don't usually friend someone after playing a game with them for an hour and a half, but how the fuck was I supposed to refuse this guy after all the FEELINGS we went through together, man?

After accepting I promptly shut my PS3 off. I'm afraid to turn it on again. Maybe I should have just declined and said "LET'S NOT RUIN THE MAGIC"

Spoilers!

Dimnos Apr 26th, 2012 02:46 AM

World of Tanks! Free to play. Kahl, Vare... You know what to do. Zhukov, this seams like your kind of thing, check it out.

darkvare Apr 26th, 2012 02:43 PM

kahljorn Apr 26th, 2012 04:34 PM

world of tanks?
is that one of those games where you have to build a bunch of shit and then someone comes along and destroys it all in one hit and you have to start all over?

Pretty much, except that you don't build anything. You just pick out your tank, then you roll onto the battlefield, start shooting your opponents, balk when your shots do no damage, then get blown up in one shot.

Oh, and if your tank tank is damaged in a fight, you have to spend the money you grinded to get on repairs.
