I'm thinking of buying Fallout New Vegas but it seems pretty buggy from the reviews, is it still worth buying or are there any other better sci-fi RPGs that i should get instead.

Chances are by now it will have been mostly patched. This, Fallout 3, and Mass Effect are all great sci-fi RPGs.

Hey guys ! I'm new to the forums!! So since I have allot of free time, I need some recommendation for online games. Yes I am interested only on online games, games to spend all the free time I have. I recently bought Call of Duty Mw2, Black Ops was to much expensive. I loved that game, already beat the campaign mode and I'm having a good time playing it online. I also bought Final Fantasy 14, because I am a FF fan, I did see the review from gamespot / ign who appears to really don't like the game, but still bought it. I own a good gaming PC and a PS3, since psn is down, but I guess will be back online pretty soon ( or not ), I will like to see some of your recommendation for online games. All suggestion are really welcome and appreciate, I am interested in all kind of games ( FPS, RTS, MMORPG, Fighters....etc...) Since this is a Recommendation thread and I'm new to the forums I would like to share some of the games I play, and spend most of my time playing. I will only share with you online multiplayer games since that is what I am most into right now. ----------------------------------- Blizzard: Starcraft II Diablo II (Great campaign, you can play it on lan and online) World of Warcraft ------------------------------------ Steam: Call of duty Mw2 Left 4 dead 2 Counter Strike Source Day of the Defeat Everquest Free Steam Games AlienSwarm TrackMania ----------------------------------- PSN: Orange Box GTA 4 ---------------------------------- Those are the game I play. :-)

[QUOTE="joshuababybot"]I need a good RTS game Rules -It has to be low graphics -It must be PURELY RTS (RTT and City Building DO NOT COUNT eg Total War or Civilization II) -It can't be Empire Earth (1 2 and 3) Any game from the CnC series or the Age of Empires series -It must be Historical (it can't be something like starcraft) -It must have multiplayer ANY SUGGESTIONS NOW ? **READ THE RULES BEFORE YOU POST, I GOT STUPID PEOPLE ON YAHOO ANSWERS AND I DON'T WANT SOME MORE ON GAMESPOT OK ? GOOD !**

I recommend you give a chance to Starcraft II, you can play it on low definition and it wont look that bad. I have a crappy laptop and it runs ok. You can always buy Starcraft Brood War, it's a great game, campaign is better than Starcraft II imo, but they are making Starcraft BW campaigns on Starcraft II, it has alot of players you wait like 10-30sec to find a player to play it online, its really challenging, and really addicting so be careful :-) But your best bet imo will be Warcraft III, it works great on a low spec pc, it has a great playerbase, BUT you have to create buildings. You can also try League of Legends, It's a free online game, it's really Warcraft 3 / Dota like, works great on low spec pc, I do not think it has a campaign though , BUT you don't create buildings!!!! :-) and has an awesome Playerbase. This is the first time I answer to someone on this forum so don't be to harsh with me, since you looked pretty strict with the game you are trying to find ;) Hope I helped ! ^^

Hello everyone. Here is the deal.. I'm planning to buy a new game, and i decided the genre will be fighter. I know what fighters are avalible, and i've already checked out the reviews. But the problem is... I CAN'T DECIDE! here is what i figured out for myself so far: -Tekken 6: Advanced and challenging, won't get repetetive, because it takes time to master, and you'll be growing like forever. -Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninjastrom 2: i love naruto, and anime graphics. The gameplay seems superficial, not enough depth to keep playing. -Super Street fighter IV: seems like a cool classic, nice in depth system, don't know what other things besides classic mode it has to offer... -DBZ Raging blast: i don't have any idea?! Mortal Kombat is not an option, since my parents are too lame to let me play 18+ games (ESRB Mature rating) (i'm 14 years old, sensible and smart....) I really can't decide, and i need something that will keep me console-bound for the whole summer. It gotta be something that will be fun next summer too =) PLEASE, I NEED HELP!

Should I get Final Fantasy XIII? I like RPGs (I'm open to different kinds of RPG gameplay) and I like games with long SP. Also I enjoy a good story. Is this game for me?

turtlethetaffer
If you like JRPG's you will probably enjoy it, it has its ups and downs, but its still a good title
#309 Posted by KeredsBlaze (2049 posts) -
Ok, here's a few games that really sound good & people on here say good things about. But as you can see, I'm a fussy customer and keep hearing things wrong with them. I prefer my games linear-ish to open world, (I seem to be rubbish at sandboxers). -Bioshock: Too short? -Vanquish: Too short? -RE5: Is your partner too annoying? -Batman AA: Not sure if I like the look of it. -Mass Effect 2: Too open world? -R&C a crack in time: Too 'cartoony'? -Prince of Persia: Too easy? -InFamous: Too open world? I really like the look of the first 3 the best. Are my 'complaints' about them wrong? Which game from the list should I get which I'll enjoy & will last a while? P.S. I've got a PS3. Thanks in advance :)Weenski
Out of your first three, I would go Bioshock

I'd go with Super Steet Fighter 4. It's not full price and it's packed with content :)

Hey, I will gladly give my opinion on your question, I am also planning to buy a fighter game (for the ps3, unfortunately psn is down), I was thinking to get Marvel vs. Capcom 3, it seems to be a really challenging game and has all my favorite gaming characters, I recommend you check out some reviews, and its +12 so no worries with your parents ;) If you are a Naruto fanboy, pick up Naruto Shippuden Ultima Ninjastorm 2 it has amazing graphics, and you will fall in love with the game the first minutes you play it. I understand it's hard to choose from all the fighters out there, if you like anime, and if you have watched Naruto it in the past, if you know the story and the characters you will find it awesome, and you will want to try each characters it has to offer. It also has a great campaign, that most of the others fighters don't have. If you prefer a "3d" fighting game rather then a platform where you can only go left and right then NARUTO again :-) The only problem is that you may find it boring after playing it for a month. If I was going to buy a Fighting game, I will first look what are the ones that have the highest Playerbase, and challenge, I like challenging games that requires you to learn and spend some time to get good at, because that is going to take you most of your time, and you are less likely going to be bored with it (just my opinion). And of course the price of the game is always an issue, but since you pointed out only recent games that costs around 50-70$ I assume ( I live in Europe ), it wont be a problem. So check out Marvel vs Capcom 3, and about choosing a fighter game, see what your friends are playing, its always cool to play with friends, and against them, it will make you want to play more to get better than them. Cheers ;)

I spent around 25 hours on FFXIII, but didn't got to the end, I was pretty close to it though. I stopped playing because I hate the battle system as everyone else. That is because we FF lovers are used to the good old FF battle system and FF XII and XIII looked pretty odd for us. If you are new to the final fantasy series you may want to try Final Fantasy 7, nothing beats that game, it's my favorite game of all time, you may find the graphics really odd, and hate it though. But hey, its an old game and only costs around 10$ on PSN, but PSN are on maintenance. For some reason I can't recomend you Final Fantasy XIII

I keep thinking about getting Tekken its cheap like 10 bucks... If its 10 bucks I wouldnt see y not get it, and its always had good reviews.

When I was a kid, Dragon Ball Z was my favorite show ever, and nothing can replace that show, I would still watch it now if it was still running but sadly not. I heard all those tenkaichi games sucked (only on ps3 which i dont have), but then came out Raging Blast. I bought it because i loved dbz so much as a kid. The game was amazing I loved it, a year later Raging Blast 2 came out, it was so much better, up to date its probably one of my favorite games, maybe because it is good or maybe cause i loved DBZ so much. I would recommend getting both of them, if not atleast raging blast 2. Its lots of fun and will keep you busy during the summer. Childhood memories sigh lol. I hope they make a 3rd one, but who knows. That game came out in november 2010 (same day as block ops) and yet its still around 50 dollars, to me that makes it sound good that its still that high in price. I still havent even completed it, too much to do lol and I dont have enough time. I bought blue dragon last week, only played it 1 hour so far, sucks when you dont have time.

Nah I'm not new to the series, I've played III and IV. I would play FFVII but I have no acess to a Playstation. (I have a Gamecube, 360 and Wii)

#316 Posted by jeromg (6 posts) -
With DBZ raging blast, i'm afraid i won't buy it for the same reason as for Naruto SUN2 The animations and specials look good, and amaze me (so do the characters) but i want an in depth fighting system, and i think i'll get bored of naruto and DBZ after a month...
#317 Posted by jeromg (6 posts) -
Right now, it's Teken6 VS Super StreetFighter IV To me it seems like SSF4=tekken combat diffiuclty and tekken time to master, but with more specials grabs and counters I'm not sure of this, but right now i like Streetfighter more. BTW Since u can get a welcome back game from sony, i'm sure i'll choose infamous. But wich game as second? i already have LBP2, and i'm not sure if it's worth it to get LBP1 just for the costumes and items. (i don't create much levels) I heard ratchet and clank quest for booty was the least of the series, so that one won't be it. For wipeout and deadnation i don't now it. can you coop in deadnation?

Here's one to all you pet owners out there. Unplggd reader Brent asks: "I was curious if you could ask everyone about what vacuum cleaners or tech they use to keep their animal fur and dander under control? I recently got a dog and while I love the little guy, keeping all that hair from sticking to my clothes and socks is becoming a real chore.

What systems do you have? If you have a DS, I reccomend Final Fantasy IV, Chrono Trigger (although there are times where you travel to the future), Dragon Quest IX and any of the Pokemon games.

Oh well then can't help you there. the Knights of the Old Republic games are very good, but you said you don't want future settings so... I know my dad enjoyed the crap out of the old Might and Magic games, particularly Might and Magic VII. But I don't know if you're willing to go that far back.

KOTOR has part future, but it has a strong fantasy feeling to it, I think. Mainly if you do the quests and converse with other people about the past. It's both sci-fi and fantasy (as I always say: fantasy can be in Sci-Fi, Sci-Fi can't be in fantasy...)

Firstly please keep fanboy comments to yourself.

So I have a PS3 and a 360 and I'm trying to decide what system I should buy LA Noire for. I do most of my gaming on my 360 as I'm not a fan of the PS3 for shooter type games.

But I'm going to assume that the graphics are better on the PS3 and therefore it will be easier to pick up on the visual ques this game uses on the PS3?

Is this a fair assumption or just crap?

Your input would be appreciated.

Cheers

Hi, could anyone tell me if i should buy Tekken6 or Super StreetFighter IV? i'm looking for a good indepth fighting system, and cool specials. The most important thing is, that it has to be playable for months and months and years...
#330 Posted by freemind13 (29 posts) -

For reasons I won't go into, I've lost access to my xbox360, and am reduced to using my psp. I'm suffering from major Mass Effect withdrawal. Unfortunately Bioware have yet to make any games for the psp, so I'm looking for the best alternative fix. I also like games like Fallout, Fable and Elder Scrolls. It can be a psp game or an old ps1 game, but what I'm looking for is:

  • A game with really in depth and meaningful character interaction, and good voice acting
  • A deep and epic story
  • An interesting and engaging world
  • Exciting and fluid action
  • 3d graphics and a cinematic feel

Obviously the psp isn't capable of the same things as home consoles, so I'm looking for the best combination of the above you can think of.

I've not played Super Street Fighter but I bought Tekken 6 upon release, kept it for about two weeks and sold it on Ebay. It's not like the previous Tekken games, wasn't as fun and addictive. (Just my opinion).

I recently bought Toy Story Racer, the PS one game. My four year old son loves it and beats me at it. (I got it from PSN a couple of months ago). I know it's not a PC game but I'm sure there is a way around that. I tried to post a more detailed reply but kept getting the stupid 'Your HTML is not well formed' message.

Hi, so far I have really only played Zelda Twilight Princess. I loved it but was very bad at fighting, and I never finished it (did 12 out of 14 levels). I then tried Okami which was beautiful but frustrating and boring; Fragile Dreams whch was beautiful to look at but ulitmately lame; Prince of Persia, the Sands of Time - got stuck adn wasn't interested enought o keep trying (whereas in Zelda I got stuck a thousand times and jsut kept going)and Monster hunter tri which was just too hard and a bit infantile. I am looking for a single player game which has great puzzles, great enivronments, and great exploring - loved being able to do things in Zelda like ride a giant boar around the desert, and snowboard down a mountain on a snowflake, etc. I am thinking of buying a new console - we bought the wii for my son but there doesn't seem to be a lot of good games for it.I don't like mega violence,or misogynistic sexual politics...is there anything out there I would like? I am thinking maybe Oblivion: Elder Scrolls, but only if it has puzzles - not just fighting... also Final Fantasy 13 looks like it has great grphics and an interesting storyline but is it all just fighting??

My best recomendation is getting another Zelda game. My personal favorite is Majora's Mask but maybe you should try the Wind Waker.

I am looking for a single player game which has great puzzles, great enivronments, and great exploring - loved being able to do things in Zelda like ride a giant boar around the desert, and snowboard down a mountain on a snowflake, etc. I am thinking of buying a new console - we bought the wii for my son but there doesn't seem to be a lot of good games for it.I don't like mega violence,or misogynistic sexual politics...is there anything out there I would like? I am thinking maybe Oblivion: Elder Scrolls, but only if it has puzzles - not just fighting... also Final Fantasy 13 looks like it has great grphics and an interesting storyline but is it all just fighting??

Cheers

Perhaps you should give Lost in Shadow a shot. It's on the Wii, has a really nice art styIe and tons of puzzles.

So I have been in the Harry Potter mood lately and was wondering what is the best game to buy? Order of the Phoenix and the Half Blood Prince look nice and it would be fun to be able to explore Hogwarts. So is one of the earlier ones better or which is the best between these two?

My favorite genre is shooters.

I hated Operation Flashpoint and Vanquish(i think im the only one)..

Are there any good single player games that have a good campaign?

My birthday was on 'judgement' day and I got about 150$ to spend.

WHat games would you recommend?

Oh and just cuz I like shooters a lot doesnt mean Im not open to other genres!

Im a very open minded person. And am willing to try new genres.

I have played Bioshock, COD series, FEAR series,Gears and Halo.

I'd recommend Vanquish.

No online game mode though so it's all about the story (and challenges, after)

There's an upcoming game called RAGE that looks like it may have what you're looking for. Now it hasn't been released, but it's main focus is supposed to be campaign and story.
