I got about half way into it and just couldnt give a shit anymore. I had it on xbox though. I hear they have some sweet patches and mods for it on pc.

You heard wrong. There are no modding tools or any playworthy mods for it. It's just as shitty and boring on a PC.

Dimnos Nov 26th, 2011 11:54 AM

Well there you have it then. I must have been thinking of another shitty game.

Zhukov Nov 26th, 2011 12:02 PM

:lol I bought it when it came out - stopped playing it when I was 15% in because my save was corrupted.

Came back to it yesterday - got 45% in and am now thoroughly bored shitless.

The level editor in that game was awesome though. If only people actually played levels online. I remember someone built a titanic using it. I mainly would just build giant towers you'd have to climb.

I tried the Survival game mode on MW3 yesterday, and it's actually pretty fun. They give you a lot of maps, each with enough room to move around, but still small enough that there's pressure. I like how every map never makes you feel confined; there's almost always a way out of the location you're in, so you never feel like you trapped yourself.

OK I hit that point in Chapter 4 where Lucas has to push those tired clay dudes to the revitalizer thing and I'm honestly so bored that I haven't played in about two weeks. There was a similar mindless task like this in the last chapter where the monkey had to deliver boxes to four different houses on the map. That's not fun. Fuck that.

Instead of enjoying the game as I'm playing it I'm constantly in an impatient hurry to move on to the next thing. :(

Gots me Saint Row 3. Should keep me busy for a while (in co-op mode, of course).

Dimnos Nov 30th, 2011 09:15 AM

Ps3 or xbox Melvin?

Mad Melvin Nov 30th, 2011 05:51 PM

PC. I usually use PC for co-op games, even though I do have an XBOX.

darkvare Nov 30th, 2011 06:14 PM

now you can't play with me or dimnos

Mad Melvin Nov 30th, 2011 06:22 PM

Do you guys usually use an xbox or a ps3 for co-op?

Dimnos Nov 30th, 2011 06:24 PM

Ps3 as it saves me $60.

darkvare Nov 30th, 2011 06:24 PM

if the game has co op i always buy it for console in this case we got the ps3 version

Read Dead Redemption: GOTYE. I rushed beating the game when it first came out, so I bought the edition with all the DLCs and Undead Nightmare included so I can 100% complete it this time.

OxBlood Dec 1st, 2011 04:04 PM

I got Anno 2070 today. The theme is just awesome, motivates me much more than the medivalish one...

Zhukov Dec 1st, 2011 11:25 PM

Cool. I want that game.

OxBlood Dec 2nd, 2011 01:22 AM

I really like how the global-warming setting and the whole melting of the icecaps-stuff creates a scenario where I don´t question the factions´ decisions to settle on super-small islands all the time, it´s simply all that´s left :)

Now, I´ve never played the Anno-games very extensively but this feels at the same time a bit slimlined and more user-friendly but I can´t really say why...I guess it´s because of EVE, the AI telling you what´s wrong all the time, giving advice and managing the massive encyclopedia-function of the game.

Gameplaywise it seems to be how I remember Anno. Build houses, satisfy demands to level up your population and get access to more buildings.
It all just feels cooler this time around. Sure, I plant rice fields in the beginning to create booze for my Tychoons (stupid name btw) but later on, I built outposts on neighbouring islands to drill for oil, process and manufacture it into plastics on-site to ship it back to my main island.
It´s just plain fun to watch all the buildings operate as this game is really really pretty, no matter if you build a nice and green Eco-Island or some dense, smoggy Tychoon-Settlement. I haven´t tried out the military aspect so I can´t comment on that yet.

And hey, even the campaign is fun so far :)

a pirated copy of gta san andreas, never finished it on ps2
not fond of playing it w/ a keyboard but i'm getting used to it

Guitar Woman Dec 3rd, 2011 01:59 AM

I gave Serious Sam 3 a shot after preordering it.

Turns out I really suck at this game because I'm getting my shit handed to me on level 3. It's still fucking awesome though.

timrpgland Dec 3rd, 2011 11:48 PM

Batman: AC is pissing me off. Started up my new game plus save again and the autosave broke. Every time I go by the GCPD building Vicki Vale keeps asking to be rescued even though she has been. Then the autosave never kicks in after that point... Trying to figure out the issue. Hate losing playtime.

Playing Secret of Mana through on coop. Unfortunately I don't have the multi-tap so just 2 player. Been a long time since playing it. We're at the desert now.

Pentegarn Dec 4th, 2011 01:08 AM

I remember the desert part really sucking, but it has been awhile. Coincidentally I am playing Sword of Mana which was a remake of Final Fantasy Adventure, which was called something else originally in Japan, which was the predecessor of Secret of Mana.

You mean Mystic Quest?

Im playing Skyward Sword which...is pretty good to be honest. Its just something about these Zelda-games that keeps me coming back.

stevetothepast Dec 4th, 2011 08:31 AM

final fantasy mystic quest is basically no fun at all. My Secret of Mana doesn't save anymore :(

zerothree Dec 4th, 2011 08:23 PM

Final Fantasy Adventure is the first Seiken Densetsu, then comes Secret of Mana, then (the awesome) Seiken Densetsu 3, then I guess Sword of Mana on PS... or something, I guess. I dunno. There's probably more.

King Hadas Dec 5th, 2011 12:09 AM

That's a common marketing strategy for Square. They released the first three SaGa games over here as Final Fantasy Legends, and the third Legends game is used as a template for Mystic Quest. By the way, Mystic Quest was localized in Japan as Final Fantasy USA: Mystic Quest which I can only see as a way of slighting Americans, which is pretty funny.
