Innit, never seen facial expressions done so well in a video game. Including L.A. Noire.

Not since 1993 but if I had the chance to go again for the Pirates of the Carribean and Haunted Mansion damn right I'd go. After all being disabled and such I automatically get first in line. 8)

I vowed to not go back to Disney world for another 15 years. I went there too many times when I was younger and couldn't handle it anymore.

Minus Monkey kinda being a asshole the game is quite enjoyable and IMO a contender for the best looking HD game going for realism. It's so pretty and alive and lush. Not grey and brown. Facial animations are great. Just too bad about Combat and framerate. HS & what I hear DmC has those problems as well.


The ending is really great too. Try to stick with it all the way to the end.
And not sure if you're familiar with the staff working on the game at all, but the guy playing Monkey also played Gollum in LotR. Really great performance from him.

Why? I mean he wakes up to find shes put a trap on him that will kill him if he A. tries to take it off or B lets her die. So i could understand the way he is towards her. And yes the facial animation smokes everything else so far and with better combat and less hand holding [glowing objects] the game would be one of my top games but the story and characters more than make up for it IMO.


Just wait till Pigsy comes into. Was laughing a lot.

Getting really deep into Lost in Shadow. The game is very fun and often makes your brain hurt as the puzzles get harder in some parts. You think you been everywhere and can't find the last Eye and then you stumble upon something. Or something that seems unreachable despite knowing you tried everything and then you find you had to so this or that. It's really well designed. The game will start out a little tedious but as you get deeper you have the mechanics down and the fun of figuring out the puzzles. It can be a good challenge at times. I have yet to encounter any real boss fights and don't think the game wants to go that route other than maybe a final boss as earlier something massive and freaky as shit thing chased you in one area. Story is simple and a little ominousness as is the game itself and meant to be that way. You feel very isolated in this massive tower. Almost no music other than creepy background noise and a warning tone when near an enemy. If the game had more polish and a few minor tweaks this could easily be a Team Ico game. It tried but not quite there.

I have a habit of starting games and then all the sudden leaving them for quite some time. :shock:

Eternal Sonata
L.A Noire
Fatal Frame II
Tales Of The Abyss

Those games I have played but never finished.Haven't popped them in months.

Xenosaga Episode 1
The Simpsons Hit and Run
Final Fantasy XII
The Getaway

Those I bought months ago and haven't touched them since.Really should go through all of them.Right now I'm currently playing Ocarina of Time Master Quest on 3DS.

Get your ass cracking with those games.

I never play a new game until I finish the one I am on.

Played the Demo of Bioshock. Setting is awesome. Other than that the Demo was meh for me. Just more endless shooting. I'll pass.

I beat Lost in Shadow. Little too long for it's own sake and frustrating at times but overall good game. Just needed some polish. Decent Team Ico inspired game.

About 12 hours into Dragon Age 2 and loving it. So far my Mage homies want to be free, so I've been killing/blackmailing the Templars as my way of sticking it to the man. I'm also sweeping Isabella off her feet in hopes of having some hot girl-on-girl action later. My only annoyance is that guard woman what's her face always seems to get her panties in a bunch whenever I extort/betray or otherwise decapitate people that I dislike. Sadly, she's the only meat sponge available to soak up all the abuse my enemies dish out in combat, so she can't be sidelined. :sad:

That was actually one of the few parts of the game I just didn't like. Kaine's voice acting is just so "anime" that it felt like they were trying way too hard to be edgy or something. Thankfully Nier and Weiss both have better voice acting, so it didn't really feel like that again to me for the rest of the game.


I didn't like how uncalled for it was, right when you start the game this guy starts yelling and cursing.


Kaine also curses a little too much, though it adds comedy when the others notice this trait. But it is a bit over the top.
