  • I can't believe I haven't been on here in so long. I remember back when it was just the beta. i loved the site back then. When i got a new computer I forgot to bookmark it again. Lucky for me I still remember the password. the changes (from what I've seen so far) are amazing! I just feel kind of sad I wasn't here to see it grow up, but I'm glad it's so successful.

    You guys got to clue me in on whats new, which looks like alot.
  • Like most people here (I'm assuming), Fallout 3 has instantly become one of my favorite games. It's open-ended feel, tons of side-quests, and has interesting story. But I must confess I found a huge 'annoyance' from this great game.
    When I played Oblivon I first devoted all my time to beating main story, then took my kick-ass, leveled up character, and completed most of the side-quests. I thought this was great, the game didn't have to end. So of course I went the same route with Fallout 3. But (I'll try not to ruin the story, but I dunno who has not beaten it at this point) when you enter the code and the thing fills with the thing, then you see Thomas Jefferson, then die?!
    This was totally unexpected (well maybe when knight said whoever goes in isn't getting out) but still. Not to say the ending was bad in anyway, I have no actual problem with it. Just the fact that it exists in general.
    Now I made a new guy and am not even going near the main story line anytime soon.   
  • I was lucky enough to find a copy of Fallout 3 available at my local Blockbuster (to buy), so I obviously jumped at the opportunity. Coming from Bethesda I was expected a great free-roam RPG along the lines of Oblivion. While the games have their few similarities, it's Fallout 3's game play that wishes I was still playing it right now. I'll try not to give any of the story (which is great and has some merit to think about our current global situation). The usual tutorial: "Look over here", "move here", "shoot this", "ok your good, go save the world" aspect is replaced by learning through different points in your life while living in an underground bomb shelter. For example, learing how to walk as a toddler is where you are told the (obvious) way to walk in the game. I thought this was a nice touch.
    When you first go out to the post nuclear war "Wasteland" its, strange to say, great to look at. Right now I'm going around interacting with the strange world, which is as fun as anything. Just seeing a person in the distance is exciting in this game. The action controls may remind you of Oblivion, but I don't find that a bad thing. I guess I'll go keep playing.

    By the way, if you can't already tell, I highly recomend this game.

    :D
  • Tis' the season for kick-ass games. I was curious what everyone was playing or looking forward too in the upcoming months.

    I personally am currently playing Fable 2, Rock Band 2, Fallout 3 (by tomorrow hopefully!!!), and Brothers In Arms: Hell's Highway.

    Cant wait for Gears 2.

     

    What you guys think?

  • As alot of people I know have, I bought Fable 2 the other day. I felt I might as well rant about it now. If this helps anyone before deciding to buy it all the better. I've been playing this game on both a large high-definition television as well as a dinky little standard in my room. Without giving any of the story away, you begin the game on a mission (as always) to get the bad guy and save the world. The story is great and the virtual world is as lively and believable as I've seen. The game play is simple and fun, especially as you level up. The world is literally at your fingertips. You can slaughter entire cities, marry and settle down, become great hero, or villian. This aspect is great and is true essence of a great RPG. So obviously I'm saying this a great game, so buy if you can. The online co-op with a friend is also a nice touch. Thanks for reading, this site seems great so far. 

     

    P.S. I'm j0ef0rsh0w on XBL if your looking for an online partner (in anything)

    I was really just looking to talk about Portable Ops on the PSP. So I choose a random FPS shooter to compare it to. I (as it seems alot of you guys are) am a fan of the Metal Gear franchise. I feel that Portable Ops was one of the first great action-shooter games for the PSP. It utilized the hardware really well. For the record I didn't even play Medal of Honor: Heroes, but didn't hear good things.

    After unloading my icon (Luigi) I thought about the game it was from, then realized, "Im at a gaming site!". So I felt I should say how I feel about it. I played both these games at a friends and while both were funny (in the Mario way) LM was the better game. Luigi himself is hilarious in the game and his facial animations stil make me laugh.

    Recently played BiA HH. I'll admit I have always been a HUGE fan of the franchise, the story, and depth is what drawn me to it, and original, and fun gameplay is what kept me. The whole of the game is based around using your squad to out manuver you opponents. Though Army of Two was a fun game, I don't feel they are even close.

    I know this is a cross-console, and even cross-console generation comparison but I felt it was still appropriate. I'm a fan of both franchises and I still feel that Snake Eater was better than Halo's latest outing. Maybe it's because I like the tactical, stealthy feel of snake to the brutal, blunt methods of master chief. Plus who dosent love the classic hiding in the cardboard box trick?

    I'm not making this choice lightly. Both these RPGs are great. But when playing The Elder Scrolls IV me and my friends would always wish that it could be online, that would be the perfect game. Now I'm not saying Fable 2 is perfect, just that its a great game on its own, and the online feature is great. Still patiently waiting for an epic console MMORPG.

    :)
