Looking for an open world zombie game.

Besides Dead Rising?

Isn't that like a small map and nothing to explore?

Well, the second one's quite a bit bigger. I'd say there's quite a bit to explore in it.

So I have Dead Space 2 beat it and loved the game. I have seen the trailer for the new DLC it looks pretty awesome. I don't find Dead Space 2's online multiplayer overly enjoyable, so I was thinking about trading it in for Origins since Origins is cheap now. The DLC however has made me think twice. What should I do?

You could hold out, play through the Game + Mode and wait until the DLC comes out, play through it and trade it in later.

[QUOTE="tepni"]

I really enjoyed my gamecube when I had it, and playing Harvest moon and Animal Crossing on it.

I have a PS3, an XBOX360, and a DS.

I just never know what games to get!

I also like Kingdom Hearts and FF 10.

Any recommendations..?

YoBrandino
Get the Rune Factory games for the DS (spin off from Harvest Moon), Elebits: The Adventures of Kai and Zero, Dragon Quest Iv V & VI, and Final Fantasy III & IV. And for the 360, you should get Tales of Vesperia, Lost Odyssey, and the Viva Pinata games. Also you would probably like World of Keflings off of Xbox Live Arcade. For the PS3, you should get Final Fantasy XIII.

Thank you! A lot of those look cool, I think I'd like some of them.

Hey guys...Need some help again..I've been wanting to play Fallout for a while so finally decided to pick it up but I'm not sure where to start...I havent played any of the parts.. Do I have to play the previous parts before playing the most recent one or should I start from the beginning? Thanks in advance..

Nah both Fallout 3 ands New Vegas are their own stories, so you will have no trouble picking up either of them.

I think New Vegas' story is better because you're offered more choices you can make. But that experience can be ruined because of the bugs, but you can download the newest patch which fixes MOST but NOT ALL bugs.

Fallout 3's story is cool, and it differs from the previous games because its set on the East Coast.

So i reccomend New Vegas, but dont start playing untill you have the latest patch.

I say Fallout 3. The atmosphere is better and I found the quests to be a little more enjoyable, plus the game of the year edition can be picked up dirt cheap. That's not to say New Vegas is a bad game - it's massive, offers more choices, includes factions etc - but I think Fallout 3 has a certain charisma and atmosphere that New Vegas couldn't match. Or, get them both! :D
#66 Posted by KeredsBlaze (2049 posts) -
@Rostor, that's a long list, but the ones that stand out the most to me in terms of story are FFVII, FFIX, Lost Odyssey, and Chrono Cross

fallout new vegas is wonderfull but so is fallout 3. I would play fallout 3 first. New vegas builds further on the story, allthough you can play without having played fallout 3. I liked them both a lot and i know some people talking about a lot of differences and there are but it's basically just a sequel but a very good sequel. The bugs i didn't have a lot of trouble with. To be honest i liked fallout 3 a little more but just a little they're both epic games.

My birthday is coming up in late March. Looking for a fun FPS, with good and addicting online multiplayer. Thinking about HomeFront. Any Ideas? (xbox 360, already have CoD 5,6,7 and I have owned bf2.)
#71 Posted by Atheno (1899 posts) -

So, I like to think of my self as a system collector. I say this because I do not collect the games, just the system them selves, and it's not always for playing them or even having them, as so much is it about cleaning the systems and keeping them safe. Like a part of history for games. So I finally came across something iv been keeping my eyes open for. A dreamcast..it belonged to an older gentleman about in his 70's. He hardly played it, but he smoked a lot so I had to scrub out the stains to get it back to glittering whiteness. Once that was all done, I sat down with two controllers, a memory card, or VMU, and three games, one of which does not work. The three games are,

SlaveZero, Hydro Thunder, and Airforce Delta (which does not work for..what ever reason)

I actually want to play around with this system though, I feel like it's an important part of gaming, so I was wondering what games I should get or try to get? I'm already buying Marvel vs Capcom 2, Resident evil code veronica, and I'm not a big fan of Sonic, so what other games should I look for?

Pst me a reply if that works better

#72 Posted by morbid_warrior (229 posts) -

Thanks for all your suggestions...It really helped..I got New Vegas..but where can i get the latest patch for it?

morbid_warrior

What system did you get it for? I'm pretty sure Ps3 and Xbox 360 versions update on startup(assuming you have an internet connection). And if you have the Pc version I believe it requires Steam so Steam should automatically update it also.

Love lego harry potter is there any other games like this for dsi?
#75 Posted by MilkyBarKid16 (195 posts) -

I was moderated for posting this message on the Xbox 360 forum (for ignoring a sticky) don't get me moderated because I was not tols in th moderation message where to put my post! Here goes (again)

I want a new racing game and I have a few that I have wanted to buy for quite a while and haven't because of various things, so here's a list

NFS Shift

TDU2

Race Pro

Split Second Velocity

Burnout Paradise

Dirt (1)

(They are in no order of preference)

Can you please give me your top 3 and reasons why you like those games and why you don't like the others (only if you have played them of course!)

Thanks!!!

I need some help on deciding if I should get Velvet assassin? I watched some gameplay videos and thought it looked good, but then I decided to read the reviews and well it didn't do too good. From experience I've enjoyed games that were reviewed far worse, but I just want to make sure if its worth it.

#77 Posted by poisonelf1 (93 posts) -

Opinions on getting Rift or Dragon age II.

First off, I really don't want a game I finish in a day like I did avatar. On this note, another canceled account with multiple max characters. So give some pro's and cons please. I have read alot on the forums on Rift and new release bumps, as well as already characters at level 50. So whats going to be more fun, and not a quick finish, max out end. Where obviously one of these is online on going, while the other is not.

I've only played Burnout Paradise, but I can definitely say that it's well worth checking out. Tons of content (and plenty of free add-ons that really change things up), plenty active online community, and generally splendid arcade style racing. Excellent game through and through. Highly recommend it.

I like stealth games. I take my time while playing them, in Hitman Blood Money i play every level for at least half an hour so i can get Silent Assassin. In Assassin's Creed i use social stealth. But Velvet Assassin seemed a bit too boring even for me. The visuals are great, but the gameplay... not so much.

What do you think i should get blur or Need for speed hot pursuit?

Well blur is fun for the first few hours, but Hot Pursuit is fun all the time :) . Especially in multiplayer.

#82 Posted by JediXMan7 (5238 posts) -

I'm looking for a good martial arts video game - preferably on the PS3 but PC is acceptable too.

By this, I do not mean "fighting games" like Mortal Kombat. I prefer "action games" or something along those lines.

My game systems:

PS3
Wii
PC
DS
PSP (currently broken. I have to send it in)
PS2
Game Cube

#83 Posted by xbox291 (102 posts) -

should i get wrath of the lich king or the orange box

#84 Posted by AleksandarTale (2906 posts) -

should i get wrath of the lich king or the orange box

xbox291

Well if you're an FPS guy ( like me :D ) you should get The Orange Box. I haven't played any WoW game so i can't really tell you anything about Wrath of the Lich King.

#86 Posted by skooks (1411 posts) -

blacklion99
Blur. It was a lot more fun and way less repetitive than Hot Pursuit, which gets boring after the first fifteen minutes.

If you like the comics Shattered Dimensions is the game 4 you. It has 4 dimensions based on 4 different comics : Noir, Earth 2099... i forgot the other 2. The game is a bit cartoony. But if you're looking for something a bit fresh you should get Web of Shadows. I liked Web of Shadows more, so that's what i recomend.

#90 Posted by lincolnosiris (14 posts) -
kool thx man! i love the comics n all but dun rlly wanna play as 4 different spidermen is the gameplay similar between the two?
#91 Posted by AleksandarTale (2906 posts) -

kool thx man! i love the comics n all but dun rlly wanna play as 4 different spidermen is the gameplay similar between the two?lincolnosiris

Like i said, in Shattered Dimensions, you play as 4 diffrent Spideys, so thats for different playstiles. The Noir part is more stealh oriented, Amazing Spider - Man is more focused on ranged web attacks, in 2099 Spidey mostly jumps around and defeats enemies with acrobatics and in Ultimate Spider - Man you're in control of the symbiote suit, and this part is focused on brutal melee combat.

Web of Shadows isn't like the other Marvel games, it has a few RPG elements. There are lots of choices to make during the game that will affect the story later. There are many other Marvel heroes and villians ( Black Cat, Wolverine, Vulture, Moon Knight ) that you can fight against or side with. The story is much more cooler and you get to choose if you're gonna be a hero, and people will chear your name or something of a bada**. Then people will run away from you.

So like i said before i recommend Web of Shadows.

#92 Posted by vadicta (4354 posts) -

I helped my dad beat the last of the new Non-Naughty Dog Jak and Daxter game for the PS2 recently and I found the flying, dog fighting styIe combat to actually be really fun. I never looked into combat games like that before, but I had a blast with Jak and Daxter that I figured I'd search out something along those lines for my Xbox 360.

I was looking at Dark Star One: Broken Alliance. It got a good review, but it looks kind of cheap and I don't want it to be a dull, semi-broken experience. If anyone has the game, I'd love to know how it is. Also, if anyone has any other suggestions, I wouldn't be opposed.

I'm just not into historical War games.

#93 Posted by hitechgraphs (129 posts) -
I'm looking for a game that it have a lot of visuals.I prefer they'll be for the PS3 but PC is ok too. When I have the 360 there was this game that I liked a lot: Kameo, I liked a lot the graphics and animation movies.I like a lot too SSFIV and MVC3 and Eternal Sonata for example,That games cell shaded with a lot of color and animation style.The game have to had some decent playtime ,not too short. I'm searching for those game not so popular but still good. What you could recommend me?
#94 Posted by JediXMan7 (5238 posts) -

What are some good free-roaming games for the PS3? Is InFamous a good free-roaming game?

My parents are giving me 150 bucks to spend on games, which means i can get any game I want! So, I like RPGs, like fallout and mass effect. I am looking at either getting dragon age 2, or getting dragon age one with all the expansions, or i might get fable 3. What do you think I should get? Here is the criteria; Xbox 360 obviously Rpg Good story Good combat Open world Preferably fantasy 60+ hours to complete Kudos to anyone who is cool enough to post
#98 Posted by MikeRobe867 (11 posts) -
Ok, I'm looking for a very specific type of game. I have a PC. I'm looking for a great MMO or MMORPG. I used to play Planetside:Aftershock but it stopped working. Please get me as close to a Planetside experience as you can. Preferably an online open-world game, modern/ SiFi shooter game.
#99 Posted by smalls5 (102 posts) -

I've played Mass Effect 2 for hours upon hours. If you havent played the first oneI would reccomend playing it first. Both are well worth your time and money.

If your not into the whole futuristic shooter kind of thing then maybe look into Dragon Age: Origins or Assassin's Creed II.
