Dishounered was good, loved blinking behind someone and choking them. Did a whole playthrough without getting cought. Tried to get back a few monthes ago and man i sucked ass. Same with hitman absolution, i spent so much time with these two games i became a grandmaster but when i got back i lost all the knowledge and experience i gained and became rusty and had to play a little while before i became good again. I remember choking people, throwing them in closets, basically owning the game, good times.

Played xenoblade for about 10 hours yesterday. Amazing game, so much quality content and great characters and not even finished, level 33 now. Game can be very challanging at times and you just want to get better. Very enjoyable game and rank it in the top 5 games of all times.

@lostrib: Yes, play this shit, it's quite fun. Not the best TPS, but it's unique in its own ways

There's a good chance you wont be saying this once you've hit around 2/3rd of the way through. :P

Is everyone playing Xenoblade these days? I know we just had Xenoblade X at E3, but still. o_0

I still haven't opened my copy of Xenoblade lol

Open it. Play it. Join the Xenoblade X hype train! :D

Only about 7 hours in myself, but I'm enjoying the goddamn MMO-like, never-ending sidequests. I don't know what they'd have to do to make me hate it, but I don't like this. D:

That is some grade A bad game design, if the player needs to restrict themselves from the abilities you gave them, for the game to be at its best.

I wouldn't say Grade A bad lol, but yeah, it's something stealth games in general suffer from as they're designed to be beatable even with restrictions. Unrestricted, it gets even easier and in Dishonored's case, too damn easy from the sound of it if you're gonna freeze time and all you lose is the Blink-only achievement. Remove time freezing and the game'd be much more enjoyable for any playstyle.

im not talking about DLC.lucinas outfit is sex appeal and im guessing thats what draws alot of people to her.Just to let you know im not attacking her or anything just stating why I think a figure is made for her.I actually paired her up with the priest Libra in the game and it was pretty entertaining to see two polor opposites have a life and kid with one another.Though like I said tharja herself never really did anythign for me.

Her...outfit which you barely get to see in her 2D art and isn't exactly on best display in her 3D model (which you usually see when she's out to kill someone) due to the 3DS' capabilities? :P

Why you'd buy her figure could very well be just because it looks good, but why she got a figure in the first place has to do with her popularity which made making a figure of her feasible. Said popularity is not solely because of her looks. Far from it, I'd say. Helps that FE:A is the best-selling FE game by a long shot and that Nintendo's been more willing to let 3rd-parties use their IPs as of late.

@Technoweirdo: Nah, the only thing I use my Wii for is occasional Just Dance. Poor thing, I need to softmod it sometime

#657 Posted by TheGuardian03 (21236 posts) -

@illmatic87: i can take a challange.:p

Gonna continue no matter what, love this game so much. Lvl39 right now and just exploring the world, its so big that i just wanna find strong enemies and try to beat them.

#658 Posted by TheGuardian03 (21236 posts) -

The soundtrack is amazing as well. This game is perfection, i spent an hour exploring and the waterfalls look so good. Huge draw distance.

Gonna continue now, will post about it later.

Im sorry I meant tharja character.I have no clue why I type lucina lol.You can eaasily see a pic online of her full outfit while the game was out plus just look at the figure that came out.Your telling me sex appeal and that outfit wasint a big reason why a figure was made :p.

I would argue it kind of is grade A bad, because you're not paying attention to how OP you made the player. And unlike something like Metal Gear, Mark of the Ninja, Splinter Cell in its prime, or Thief, there is no higher difficulty that takes advantage of the many things you have at your disposal to get the job done. Dishonored may have a "hard" mode, but shit is a total cake walk.

Regardless I found the game to be immensely satisfying to use all those abilities and tackling each objective to run up the body count. Felt like an actual assassin as oppose to the stuff in AssCreed(where you are more like a glorified knight). It works in tandem with the more open feel of the mission designs and game world in general. Plus finding clever ways to kill someone put some devilish grins on my face. Only major draw back of that is the whole the city goes into "chaos" and blah blah, which wasn't a major issue for me. But it does feel like such a stupid entry into a game, because it's basically

-Give you all this cool shit you can do
-Punish you for using all the cool shit you can do

Edit: Of course you have.

Such a fun character to use. She has the most active skillset in terms of gameplay.

#668 Posted by TheGuardian03 (21236 posts) -

My main have always been shulk, i tried using dunban and ryen but prefered shulk, their attack do more damage than me, dunban can do 20k damage at times and ryen is always higher than me. I tried having shulk as back up and he was useless. Shulk as main and ryen and dunban as back up. Havent met this melia character yet. We'll see. Im just exploring and leveling right now in the forest level with the electric dinasour animals in there. Forgot the name of the area lol

Wow, you've done a hell heap of sidequests and general killing. I dont recall being anywhere near as high level before Melia joined. Melia is a mix of damage and support with an element mechanic similar to DotA 2s Invoker, or to some extent, the system that makes up the core of Magicka.

I ended up benching Shulk. He's fun to use as alot of skills are off low cooldown, making more active and are positional/movement based. But he just became obsolete, or didnt really have much group dynamics going for him.

Is Twisted Metal actually fun to play? it seem so boring to me when i watch gameplay videos of it.

i'll probably pick up Growlanser: Heritage Of War ( PS2 classic ) for $4 its currently on sale on PSN

@illmatic87: going to prison island now, met riki, melia.

Team is shulk as main and dunban with high agility back by crystals agility.

I replaced ryen with riki, is this a good idea?

Ha, not even Gold. Doubt we'll ever get another figurine. Suppose an OST would be nice, perhaps of Mario Kart 8's (Just about any of Nintendo's games would suffice, really), but even that would be a bit too hopeful. Still, I pray those of you who hit Platinum status get something good this year.

I hit platinum forever ago. I would take just about anything, since they took off any good rewards from the site. My Hanafuda cards Q.Q.

What would be really cool is if platinum members could get a 3DS XL dock, since they sure as hell don't want to sell them.

#693 Posted by super600 (29949 posts) -

I hit gold awhile ago with my wiiu purchase. and the games I bought with it. I'm way past gold now. I have over 400 coins now.

#694 Posted by Allicrombie (25085 posts) -

I've been platinum for like a year now , never picked up any rewards.

And possibly give you enough stars for a Peach Notebook? Fuck no. We don't get that here. Sure as hell not letting you get that. Besides, I don't have a Wii U myself. >.>

The stuff that will go into my pinkish-grey Peach Notebook will be straight up poetry.
