Finished Alien: Isolation. Comically overlong. Alien encounters remain fantastic throughout, but other enemies and padded objectives make it tedious. Very much worth playing if it sounds cool, but be warned about that.
Mike Suskie @Suskie10:05 AM
@zippdementia @JoeTheDestroyer Just all this GamerGate crap. It's stupid and I want it to die.
Mike Suskie @SuskieOct 16, 2014
I really hate the game industry right now.
Mike Suskie @SuskieOct 16, 2014
@Masters I like Assassin's Creed in general and that game was absolute garbage.
Mike Suskie @SuskieOct 15, 2014
@zippdementia All three. AI quirks, pathfinding problems, etc. I was once hiding from an android in a locker and as it looked for me, its face clipped through the door.
Mike Suskie @SuskieOct 15, 2014
From what I've played so far, Alien: Isolation is unbelievably scary, but it's also disappointingly unpolished. Really wish this thing had been more technically proficient.
Mike Suskie @SuskieOct 14, 2014
@overdrive They're just digital cards that you get for playing your games. You can put them on the market and set your own price, and people buy them. No idea why, but hey, I ain't complaining.
Mike Suskie @SuskieOct 14, 2014
Also, I have $20 in my Steam wallet after some weirdo bought one of my Ryse cards for that much, and now I'm wondering if I should just get it over with and try out Velocibox.
Mike Suskie @SuskieOct 14, 2014
Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor review will be up shortly. Loved it loved it loved it. Will be hitting up both Alien: Isolation and The Evil Within this week.
Mike Suskie @SuskieOct 03, 2014
@EmP So close :(
Mike Suskie @SuskieSep 29, 2014
Natural Doctrine. Review forthcoming, but man, this is awful.
Mike Suskie @SuskieSep 29, 2014
Hyrule Warriors. Love Zelda, never played Dynasty Warriors. I'm actually enjoying this. Frantic, sprawling level design keeps the game from getting repetitive and the fan service is almost too thorough. Will continue playing.
Mike Suskie @SuskieSep 29, 2014
Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair. Not far in, but actually seems pretty predictable so far since it's basically just following the same template at the original. Hopefully it's got some surprises I'm not expecting.
Mike Suskie @SuskieSep 29, 2014
Orbital Gear. Cruddy little gravity-based battle arena shooter with minimal features and no oomph to the actual combat. Took it on as a review assignment for another site just because it looked neat. It isn't. No one's playing it, either.
Mike Suskie @SuskieSep 29, 2014
Velocity 2X. Actually one of the best games I've played this year; makes the original feel one-note in comparison. A speedrun game that's friendly for people who want to take it slow, too. Runs brilliant on Vita. Lots of unique ideas. Thumbs up.
Mike Suskie @SuskieSep 29, 2014
Super Mario 3D World. Was never nuts about 3D Land but, again, needed good local multi. Basically tailor-made for co-op since the inclusion of more players actually makes it more difficult and hectic. Not an innovator, but solid, lighthearted fun.
Mike Suskie @SuskieSep 29, 2014
Mario Kart 8. Dismissed this for months, then finally needed a good local multiplayer game. Split-screen online is my savior. I don't retract that this is a predictable game, but riveting track designs and easy online access make it good at what it does.
Mike Suskie @SuskieSep 29, 2014
Aight, rapid-fire gaming progress rundown.
Mike Suskie @SuskieSep 27, 2014
@Ben I've been on the market for local multi games to play with my girlfriend and those have been our two primary choices lately. Neither is terribly exciting solo but they open many doors when there's someone else in the room.
Mike Suskie @SuskieSep 24, 2014
@Ben That was something I really appreciated about The Wolf Among Us. It was very honest about what it was.
Mike Suskie @SuskieSep 24, 2014
@Ben I do agree about the gamey aspects... they're my biggest complaint about Danganronpa. I kinda wish they'd just gone full visual novel because dynamicless mini-games like that add absolutely nothing.
Mike Suskie @SuskieSep 24, 2014
@Ben I'm kinda slow when it comes to crime mysteries so you'll probably predict more than I did. That reveal about the victim totally took me off guard.
Mike Suskie @SuskieSep 22, 2014
@Ben Second case is my favorite. Lots that I didn't see coming.
Mike Suskie @SuskieSep 22, 2014
@Ben I liked that case less for the reveal about the killer and more what we learn about the victim and how it affects/involves the main character. I never saw ALL of the puzzle in that game.
Mike Suskie @SuskieSep 20, 2014
@Ben I know. That game hits fast and hard.
Mike Suskie @SuskieSep 18, 2014
@Ben This sounds like the most horrible game in the world.
Mike Suskie @SuskieSep 14, 2014
@honestgamer @espiga Got any more?
Mike Suskie @SuskieSep 06, 2014
Finally finished Divinity: Original Sin tonight with 78 hours logged. Whew. Easy GOTY for me, at least so far, and possibly the best CRPG I've ever played.
Mike Suskie @SuskieSep 05, 2014
@JoeTheDestroyer I say it again: Only video game to make me cry.
Mike Suskie @SuskieAug 27, 2014
I want to play The Walking Dead S2 on PC, but I played the first season on 360. Is that a problem? Is there carryover in regards to choices or does it not matter?
Mike Suskie @SuskieAug 15, 2014
Probably worth mentioning that it literally made me scream at one point.
Mike Suskie @SuskieAug 15, 2014
Just played PT. Honestly one of the scariest things I've ever played. If it's any indication of where Kojima is taking Silent Hill, I am, to my great surprise, 100% on board.
Mike Suskie @SuskieAug 12, 2014
@Germ @honestgamer We all know how long Xbox "exclusives" last.
Mike Suskie @SuskieAug 07, 2014
I'm reviewing it elsewhere, but I played Rogue Legacy this week and it largely lives up to the praise. Unfortunately, the bosses are cheap and lazy, enough to bring the experience down a bit.
Mike Suskie @SuskieAug 07, 2014
GameFly finally sent me Wolfenstein: The New Order. Maybe I'll check that out. Or maybe I'll go back to Divinity: Original Sin now that I'm done with all of my current review assignments.
Mike Suskie @SuskieAug 04, 2014
@Ben Well, if you're interested in pushing yourself over the hump, don't be afraid to ask for advice. The game sparkles once you get the rhythm (which admittedly takes some work).
Mike Suskie @SuskieAug 04, 2014
@Ben I did warn you that that would be the case.
Mike Suskie @SuskieAug 04, 2014
@zippdementia @Ben Well you don't get credit for it if you voice your prediction after I've already posted the damn thing!
Mike Suskie @SuskieAug 02, 2014
The Last of Us completed. I promised Jason I'd review it, but I'll probably need to sit on this one for a few days.
Mike Suskie @SuskieJul 29, 2014
@Ben I'll read your review as soon as I finish the game myself. I bought it today so it's definitely happening.
Mike Suskie @SuskieJul 28, 2014
I finally get to play The Last of Us tomorrow.
Mike Suskie @SuskieJul 27, 2014
Mike Suskie @SuskieJul 25, 2014
@overdrive Dude, you need to play Divinity: Original Sin. I am not screwing around here.
Mike Suskie @SuskieJul 23, 2014
First round of Dark Souls II DLC is pretty lame. Bland, cheap and lazy. I'm going back to Divinity: Original Sin (which is incredible).
Mike Suskie @SuskieJul 18, 2014
@zippdementia @overdrive It's such an overwhelming game. Just how I like it :D
Mike Suskie @SuskieJul 18, 2014
@Ben My (very positive) review for that is about halfway done.
Mike Suskie @SuskieJul 16, 2014
@zippdementia @overdrive You guys should check out Divinity: Original Sin. I've only played a bit of it but it's basically a CRPG fan's dream game.
Mike Suskie @SuskieJul 13, 2014
Played through The Wolf Among Us this weekend. I could tell you what I thought of it, but that would spoil my review which I might write maybe!
Mike Suskie @SuskieJul 08, 2014
@Never3ndr Honestly, everybody else seems to like it, so maybe you will, too.
Mike Suskie @SuskieJul 08, 2014
Making, like, my third attempt to get into The Witcher 2 and yeah, it ain't happening. The combat is just such absolute junk.
