After 4 patches, Assassin's Creed Unity is the best entry in the series since Brotherhood. It being released essentially unfinished was inexcusable though.
Mike @GenjDec 25, 2014
@Suskie @JoeTheDestroyer Mordor is a must buy. One of my favs from the year and better than the last 3 or 4 Ass Creeds. Wolf I actually liked more than Walking Dead S1. Just wait for Knack to inevitably be the free PS Plus game this year.
Mike @GenjDec 22, 2014
Beat Alien Isolation. It does a lot of things right and a lot of things wrong. I really wanted to like this game more. Great concept but the campaign probably should have been half as long.
Mike @GenjNov 30, 2014
@Suskie @espiga I like the new Smash Bros but I've barely touched it thanks to Far Cry 4. I haven't even taken the shrink wrap off Dragon Age Inquisition.
Mike @GenjNov 22, 2014
Just finished Dragon Age 2. One of the worst games I've played in some time. Awful story & characters. Poor dialog. Repetitive quests & enemy encounters. Too much backtracking. It's like they rushed it out with no care for quality.
Mike @GenjNov 13, 2014
@Suskie I've pretty much lost all faith in the IP and Ubisoft is quickly becoming the worst company. I'm getting worried about having Far Cry 4 preordered now. It better not run like this.
Mike @GenjNov 01, 2014
@Suskie I thought about buying the Sunset Overdrive bundle with the holiday discount but already having a PS4 makes the Xbone library pretty limited for a $300+ purchase. Still I'd like an excuse to play this so hoping for a crazy Black Friday deal.
Mike @GenjOct 25, 2014
@Suskie loved the game but yeah story is the worst thing about it. Spoilers: I'd call it spooky Inception but that would be insulting to Nolan.
Mike @GenjOct 15, 2014
4+ hours into the Evil Within. Surprisingly slow start but it's getting good. Basically RE4 meets SH. Game design feels like PS2 era with checkpoints - I can understand the mixed reviews. Story is awful. Atmosphere is excellent.
Mike @GenjOct 15, 2014
@Suskie Isolation looks like its forumla wouldn't interest me for an entire campaign. I'm waiting on this one to drop price.
Mike @GenjOct 07, 2014
Unlocked the last character in Hyrule Warriors. Maybe I just suck at this game, but getting A rank to unlock weapons seems too hard and I'm losing interest. Fun but mindless and repetitive. Wish it drew more from other Zeldas than OoT, TP, SS.
Mike @GenjSep 29, 2014
@Suskie I had gotten it free w/ PS Plus and finally played it last week. Never played the original but 2X is a great game. Only downside is you kinda need to speedrun levels to get enough XP to unlock the late levels. I'm only on mission 44 as a result.
Mike @GenjApr 20, 2013
@honestgamer It's the kind of game the Wii should have had more of. Compelling design, legitimately good motion controls.
Mike @GenjApr 07, 2013
@JoeTheDestroyer Booker is basically Liam Neeson in Taken.
Mike @GenjApr 04, 2013
@JoeTheDestroyer I played it through twice within a week of release. Best game I've played since Dark Souls.
Mike @GenjMar 29, 2013
and this is before Elizabeth is around to chuck them your way. Later in the game, possessed humans get killed quickly making them pretty useless.
Mike @GenjMar 29, 2013
@pickhut It seems most useful only early on though. Even if you possess machines, they eventually revert back to enemies. Plus it costs a lot of Salt
Mike @GenjMar 26, 2013
@Suskie It feels more like a straightforward FPS than Bioshock and I expect some people won't be pleased with this. I'm liking it though.
Mike @GenjMar 24, 2013
@pickhut I did forget hacking is WAY better in 2. That pipe mini game in 1 gets old really fast.
Mike @GenjMar 24, 2013
the gathering mechanic for ADAM. Fighting swarms of splicers got old fast. The atmosphere & scenario design weren't as memorable either.
Mike @GenjMar 24, 2013
@pickhut I replayed the original 6 months ago so I replayed 2 this weekend. Dual-wielding definitely improves the game, but I was never a fan of...
Mike @GenjMar 17, 2013
Between Ni no Kuni & Tomb Raider (and Bioshock Infinite a week away), this year has already been better than last year.
Mike @GenjFeb 28, 2013
@Genj For those curious, recently played and finished Atelier Rorona & Totori, Terranigma, Secret of Evermore. Currently about 1/2 thru Lunar Sega CD.
Mike @GenjFeb 28, 2013
Currently on a big JRPG kick after Ni no Kuni. Which version of Dragon Quest VI should I play: SNES or DS?
Mike @GenjFeb 18, 2013
@TomatoMan Big nostalgia game for me. Rented it when I was 7 thinking it was a pure action game. Ended up loving it. Probably my 1st RPG type game.
Mike @GenjFeb 04, 2013
@zippdementia Plus I already have MG Rising, Tomb Raider, Atelier Ayesha, Bioshock Infinite, and Pandora's Tower pre-ordered.
Mike @GenjFeb 04, 2013
@zippdementia Passing on Dead Space 3. I have concerns regarding the more Gears-ish approach it seems to take.
Mike @GenjFeb 01, 2013
Beat Ni no Kuni this afternoon. Fantastic game. Fabulous story, graphics, music, and gameplay; however, I slightly enjoyed Xenoblade more.
Mike @GenjJan 25, 2013
@honestgamer Ni no Kuni for sure. Already nearing 10 hours. Kinda annoyed I'm up for the Sunday rotation at work the weekend after its release.
Mike @GenjJan 22, 2013
@honestgamer Vigil & the Darksiders IP to Square Enix, Bethesda or WB. They seem the least likely to interfere with business as usual.
Mike @GenjJan 20, 2013
@honestgamer Ni no Kuni also although technically I've already bought it. So I guess the next game I'd like to buy is Metal Gear Rising.
Mike @GenjJan 16, 2013
@Suskie Only on mission 5 but I'm liking it. It's a lot better than the demo and way better combat than Heavenly Sword & Enslaved. Too easy though.
Mike @GenjDec 16, 2012
Got 90% through Prototype 2 and then got a game ending glitch where the story mission disappear. No fixes other than restarting. Fuck this game.
Mike @GenjDec 15, 2012
Finished Darksiders 2 last night and loved it, which was unexpected because the 1st bored me. Execution was just way better.
Mike @GenjDec 09, 2012
@holdthephone I was told it was bad by a friend, but I was pleasantly surprised. Decent battle system, fantastic visuals. Feels like a Miyazaki movie.
Mike @GenjDec 01, 2012
@holdthephone It's still Dishonored
Mike @GenjNov 22, 2012
I'm probably going to pass. I've already picked up Sleeping Dogs, Persona 4 Arena, Darksiders 2, GTA4 Complete, Saint's Row 2, and Op Raccoon City.
Mike @GenjNov 22, 2012
Borderlands 2 is going to be a $25 lightning deal tonight on Amazon. Never played the 1st one. Worth it?
Mike @GenjNov 18, 2012
@honestgamer I have zero interest in the Atelier games. Sleeping Dogs I hope to pick up this Thursday.
Mike @GenjNov 18, 2012
After three playthroughs I gotta say Dishonored is GOTY.
Mike @GenjNov 18, 2012
@JoeTheDestroyer @Suskie @honestgamer @jerec A ridiculously easy adventure game with a sandbox awkwardly tacked on. Looks pretty though.
