Been away for a little while, so I hope all is well with you all.

I played this game that I got from Gamefly called 50 Cent: Blood In The Sands and it is atrocious! Such bad voice acting, especially from 50 Cent. "Bitch got my skull!" Really? I wonder if they just shove a tape recorder in front of his face and had him say those lines quickly? Just...wow...and the gameplay is terrible. Not a whole lot of fun either...

Metamania
why did you play it?

Is that the one for Xbox 360? I heard it was actually a half decent game, even with the so bad its good voice acting?

Things are going well. I got Mass Effect 3 again to keep in my collection permanently. I remember X-Play reviewing one of 50 Cent's games was okay. After inspecting metacritic reviews, I am fairly certain it was Blood in the Sand. User reviews can be a good second opinion, though.

Why? Because my curiousity got the best of me, that's why. Fifteen minutes after playing it for the first time, I got sick of it and shipped the game back to Gamefly.

It's not. It's a horrible third-person shooter that even worse to play. I'll put it to you this way - I'd rather play Army Of Two: The Devil's Cartel over 50 Cent's game.

I feel like I saw a quick look of a game with 50 Cent at Giantbomb, but I honestly do not know if it is Blood in the Sand, or something else. Sucks to hear it is not so good after all, but the quick look made it look like a laugh.

I still haven't played Bioshock Inifinite, Splinter Cell Blacklist or GTA V yet I own two copies of Silent Hill 4 The Room. What is wrong with me?

Trying to play it on my 360 is pretty funny. The faces totally fuk up in the cutscenes, black lines tearing through them.

Also replaying Doom 3, I know its an older game but it looks and plays utter crap. Sad really.

 i haven't played GTA 4, GTA V, any Zelda game ever, Half Life, Skyrim, Bioshock, Bioshock Infinite, Last of Us, Red Dead Redemption, Gears of War trilogy, Portal 1 & 2, etc. I am worse off than you, but somehow feel i haven't missed all that much to be honest. Even though these games may be great

I haven't played LoU but i've seen a lot of it. Look great to be honest.

Havent most Zelda games either, just Ocarina and Link to the Past. 

You are definitely missing out on same great titles.

I was mainly just pointing out how I've been reduced to having no quality games but two copies of a pretty sh!t game.

Also, I have Homecoming. The huge turd floating on my toilet bowl collection.

I played one of the multiplayer maps of Mass Effect 3 for the first time yesterday. It is basically the same as Horde mode in Gears of War with some objectives added for some rounds.

Pretty much.
#370 Posted by The_Last_Ride (68582 posts) -
Yeah, the only reason i am doing it is for the trophies and the "special ending teaser". I hope that has some sort of payoff in ME4

I think i may have played about 30 minutes of the multiplayer solo and gave up on it. Seemed like it had some potential, but sadly nobody was around to play it with.

The next game that Gamefly shipped off to me is Remember Me. I hope that's a decent effort (the game being the possible decent effort, I mean!).

I haven't heard of a special ending teaser from playing the multiplayer. All it really does it enhance your warpoint score from 50% to 100%. You actually don't have to do any multiplayer and you'll still get enough points to see all the endings.

Not really. I got that ending with 50%. 100% warscore potential doesn't reflect that. You get that ending if you choose the Destroy option, unless that absolutely changed everything since the updates (I haven't played ME3 since the updates to the story and everything).

My security software stopped two Trojans from doing damage to my computer in the past two weeks. Both of them were from Team Fortress 2. I thought I would give anyone who plays a warning.

I've heard it's a mixed bag, but that depends on who you are talking to about it.

Where are your current whereabouts?

@Yagr_Zero oh. I thought they changed it after the extended ending. Because i played the original ending. I might have to look that up to be certain though

I get the impression any posts made in unions are not going to be included, however, I don't think I have made 19K posts in the main boards so who knows.

@The_Last_Ride: Post counts are getting reset. Lark said people will high post counts will get a Mass Effect 2 completed save game into ME3-ish bonus. Whatever that means.

It means your sniper level will be higher than the average peasant.

Have any of you started being taken to the last post you read in a thread? I just noticed it happening for the last few threads I've clicked on.

No, and the notifications aren't popping either. Sony isn't doing well in US, that's why. And are the posts being reset? Because they clearly said in the fireside chat that they weren't

Have you tried clicking the arrows at the end of the thread titles? Been working flawlessly for me so far. May take a few seconds to bring you to the proper post, though.

No idea on post counts. Haven't heard anything. I would assume not, since resetting them would suggest we wouldn't have all the threads from the old site carry over. But given that they have...
