If anyone is interested, Target is doing a Buy 2 get 1 Free sale until Saturday on all games, new releases or old. Thinking of buying Assassins Creed Unity, Middle Earth Shadow of Mordor, and my free game will be Advanced Warfare so I don't have to pay for it.

I got these, as I'm sort of migrating my collection (what I can, anyway) to my PS3.

Came with Dead Space: Extraction, which I quite like so far


Mass Effect is, and always will be, joint first on my list of favorite game/Franchises.


Despite what anybody says, I love this game. Yes, it is quite repetetive, but that didn't annoy me at all.


I also got this, which I really love so far. It reminds me quite a bit of stuff like Minority Report and Paycheck.

I played it, once, probably shortly after it came out. Fought my cousin in it. Wasn't my copy, so I only ever encountered it a single time. Forgot all about it until this conversation happened.

i didn't own it, my cousin did. thank god it wasn't mine. I think primal rage, eternal champions, justice league task force, and shaq fu are the worst fighting games of the 16 bit era.

I still have Primal Rage on Midway Arcade Treasures 2, I think. I know I still have one or two issues of the comic mini-series.

I actually loved Eternal Champions. SEGA did put effort into everything apart from the actual fighting mechanics funny enough, don't think it was any worse than MK from those days but not SF level. The background stories on the characters were awesome, they had far more depth than any fighting game at that time, character designs and background stages were great, and they had some cool finishing moves. It pretty much ticked the 90's list of what to put in a fighting game.

Jesus Christ, finally! Now I just need this game (and no terrible end-boss again, please and thank you) and Tekken x Street Fighter to come out, and I'll be happy.

Yo.

wow! looks like on Black Friday, Best Buy will be selling The Elder Scrolls Anthology -set (which is all 5 games; Arena to Skyrim) for $15......which is a good deal cheaper than the $50 I bought it for back in June. :/

*sighs*

Aladdin was an awesome game, and the SEGA version was the best. All those Disney games back then were great.

Which unfortunately is becoming a reoccurring theme this gen. It seems like these big companies just shit out broken games without a flying fuck. Don't worry those dumb ass gamers with giant pre-orders will still buy the game no matter what, I bet that's what the suits say and sadly they're right.

I mean shit, when is the last time you bought a game and on day one of you putting it in your console it didn't immediately start downloading some massive patch? That's why disks games DVD or Blu Ray are worthless now, the actual game you get on the disc is broken, unplayable or missing features. I read Evil Within on consoles without any patches runs at 20fps lol.

What happened to days of just getting a full working game on disc/cart? That's why it wont even matter when things go full digital. The line between console and PC has been blurred which probably explains my reasoning for not being into consoles much anymore. It will suck 10 years from now when Sony/MS pull those patches from existence, and you won't be able to play that PS3/4 or XBOX360/1 game because all you have is the physical DVD which ain't worth shit really.

At least on PC I know I can go dig up some game from 20 years ago and find the patch to make it work, how will that work on consoles I wonder? Well it probably won't. It won't be like buying a SNES and then just putting MK in and I'm good to go. Naa first you got to get that 15gb patch son

I just wish gamers in general weren't just collectively dumb, it's not ok at all for such things to be happening.

These days you really have to research what you're buying, otherwise you will feel like a chump, while some suit is counting his/her last giant bonus. It reminds me of that character Angry Joe does. I bet that's what is going on at Ubisoft right now lol.

While this may be true for Unity, last-gen's Rogue got a relatively glowing review from Matt Miller in the latest Game Informer. He gave it an 8.5 and said that although it copy-pastes a fair few things from previous games, it has a wide and varied set of missions, solid design, dated-but-serviceable mechanics/animations, and it closes out the America saga so that players don't have to go back to it after playing Unity.

There's no dedicated multiplayer (not like I care), but you have so much to do that you won't mind.

I'll probably put this on my Christmas list.

Same could be said of the Xbox 360: I've had mine since launch, and it only broke once, but I've met guys who have gone through six.

Unity may not be unplayable, but it has some real flaws to it.

Just now finished watching a walkthrough of Dead Space. Very nice, although despite a pretty intelligent design, it falls victim to genre tropes here and there. I found it quite annoying that it is very dark or pitch-black in some areas, and I think that while it is a horror game and being sightless can be frightening, it can also ruin an experience.

Overall, though, the visuals were top-notch, and the acting was very solid. Script was well done also. I found the plot to be quite satisfying, and the enemies, the necromorphs, were suitably grotesque and intimidating (though they became clearly an annoyance due to some moments of "let's cram a bunch of monsters in here and force the player to go crazy").

Oh, and the lack of oxygen got old fast, especially when fighting necros.

I also appreciate the effort on the dev's part of the "secret message" in the chapter names. Quite clever of them, really.

I found the resource management to be kind of irritating. Yes, it's a key trait, picking your upgrades and inventory carefully (and I have to applaud the inclusion of a storage system in the store), but Jesus, they hit you with enemies enough to deplete your ammo repeatedly, even if you upgrade the damage enough to use less shots. Sheesh.

I should enjoy playing the second, though given that it and 3 are on two discs, I'll probably get the third on PS3 instead of 360. Just need to find a good vendor and price.

Also, Unitologists are dickholes. That is all.
