Re: What Are You Currently Playing? (2009)

Did you enjoy the first one, Cayal? I sure did. I waited and waited for the 2nd one to get released, and now I'm breathless for the 3rd one! So many unanswered questions! (If you listen after the credits, it SCREAMS sequel...I'm excited.)

It wasn't bad. I don't hold it in high regard as others do.

Re: What Are You Currently Playing? (2009)

Ah. I can see why that might be. There are a lot of cliches with the characters, but I really enjoyed the game play. Though it took me a little bit to get used to the controls (over-the-shoulder shooters aren't generally games I play...I'm more of a first-person shooter person myself), overall it was a very enjoyable experience.

I mean, the chainsaw melee? I don't generally like a ton of gore, but that's just flat-out fun.

Also, they go more into depth with the story in the second one. Very cool.

Re: What Are You Currently Playing? (2009)

Controls were a bit annoying...but I am so used to a PS controller.

I don't think it is better than Mass Effect or Fable 2.

Re: What Are You Currently Playing? (2009)

Agreed. Those are both stellar games. I wouldn't necessarily argue that it's better than most games out there, but it is definitely up there for me personally. I think that the most over-hyped game there is would have to be Halo.

Re: What Are You Currently Playing? (2009)

I've been playing Final Fantasy games, sort of in reverse order. I'm down to number 7 now; just got an old copy in the mail yesterday. It's rather exciting to finally play the FF game that EVERYBODY says is the best.

(I still think FF9 is the best, but that's okay.)

I've also been playing Little Big Planet. It's a fun game!

I haven't played Halo 3 yet, but the other two were massively over-rated.

I'll be replaying FFVII sometime fairly soon, myself. I'm currently replaying Wild Arms 3.

Re: What Are You Currently Playing? (2009)

Still playing at Titan quest (one of my friends wanted a look at it so I fired it up and got hooked).
Tried Sacred 2 and it is a totally worthless pile of DREK! don't bother/save your money ...
I think that 2008 will be the year I gave up on video games, not a single one that I liked...
Waiting for Diablo 3...

Enjoy!

Hey, you!

>.<

I just started playing games in 2007! I completed Twilight Princess, then FF10, FF10-2, FF9, My Life as King, Lost Winds; nearly finished FF8, FF12, Mario Galaxy; and played a bit of The Wind Waker, Ocarina of Time, A Link to the Past, Fire Emblem (PoR), Kingdom Hearts, Tales of Symphonia, Mario RPG, Lair, Little Big Planet, and some others.

It's just not possible to catch up at this point.

:P

And it's not like FF7 was available at Game Stop. I had to wait until we found a copy that was a reasonable price. I just started FF7 last night, and I'm a newbie to FF11 right now.

Sorry but Final Fantasy VII takes precedent over every single game ever made or ever will be made.

If it costs $1,000. You buy it. No questions.

Agreed. I still hope they remake it...have all of the same music and dialogue, but make it prettier than the first go. Make it look more Crisis Core-esque. It would make BANK, and make all of the loyal fans very very happy.

Square-Enix lost their loyal fans when they became money grubbing back stabbers (or so the fanboys say).
