Currently Spec Ops: The Line. Gameplay is meh but the story is quite different from most shooters, which makes it interesting.

Starting tomorrow though it'll be Bioshock Infinite.

Army of Two: 40th Day.

I have both Gears of War Judgment and Bioshock Infinite coming from Amazon, sometime this week.

Can you elaborate on the story aspect a bit? I love story-centric shooter ala Bioshock or Metro 2033, but am unable to find anything new that closely resembles those games. Is it an engaging, unique story?

Skulls of the Shogun. I've been getting games from Gamefly and finishing each one in about a day or two. I should get Tomb Raider today or tomorrow from them.

Hope you enjoy Bioshock Infinite as much as I am. As I said, I managed to get to play it over the weekend because the flatmate works in Blockbusters and I am seriously impressed! :)

I suppose I should clarify a bit first. It's a third-person shooter, like Gears of War or Uncharted, but more rough around the edges. But then again I didn't buy the game for that reason anyway.

It's a modern military shooter, but the story is way different than your average COD/Battlefield game. In fact, I'd say Spec Ops: The Line is more of the polar opposite of those games. Whereas COD/Battlefield are kind of the "America, f*** yeah!" type games where war is glorified, Spec Ops is actually quite critical of war and goes to great lengths to show how it doesn't benefit anyone. As you play through it, you end up doing a lot of stuff your character (Walker) didn't originally intend to do - actions can have unintended consequences, a point the game makes repeatedly. I would go into more depth on this but I wouldn't want to spoil anything if you do decide to play it. 

As I said before, gameplay-wise, it's basically your average third-person shooter where you advance through levels fighting off waves of enemies. You might even be bored by some of the game itself, as it does have a lot of the conventional shooter elements (like turret sequences, or defend this point for so long, etc). The story is really unique though, and I'd recommend giving the game a shot just for that. Having played Bioshock and Metro 2033 myself I wouldn't put it on the same level as those games in terms of overall quality, but I still believe it's worth a playthrough.

Wow! Thanks for teh expansive intro friend. I would definitely give it a shot, simply from what you just told me about it. I would most likely enjoy it as much as you do.

I'm having a blast with Dead Space 3, I just finished the SP and now I'm about to give the co-op a spin. I got some vacation time coming up...hopefully I can get back into Skyrim.

I've been trying to get back into Skyrim but I'm finding it extremely difficult. My save with almost 200 hours on it disappeared a while back and now I have to replay all of that content again to get back up to level 50. At 25 right now, don't know if I'll actually continue with it. Oh well.

#17 Posted by immortality20 (8019 posts) -

Trying to finish up Gears of War Judgment and Tomb Raider, both exceptional games in their own rights. Tomb Raider is a strong 9 while Gears sits around 8.5.

Playing through Gears of War Judgment on Insane (So far the hardest of the Gears campaigns on Insane) before I return it.

Got DBZ Budokai HD collection today from Gamefly. Soon as I get 1000/1000gs I'll send it back and hopefully get either the new Army of Two, Dead Space 3 or DmC.

Miku Hatsune Project Diva F, for the PS3... just released "For Japan Only" and yes it literally can cause Epileptic Seizures because it is INSANE... and uhh... its not just a rythm game by the ways. his game has No Violence for a change, how to say... well... if you remember hearing an episode of Pokemon that was banned in Japan because it caused those seizures in children, wel Miku Hatsune Project Diva F is exactly that but multiply it by 1000%. and the CERO rating is for 15 and up. Been playing this every day so far since 3/8/13

Skyrim is a hard game to get back into if you take a break from it. I got up to level 35 on my "OTHER" system but I eventually traded it in becuase of all the bugs in that version.

I started over on the 360 version back in december but I just can't stat consistant with it becuase of time and other issues.

UFC Undisputed 3.

#27 Posted by Yoshi9000 (434 posts) -

Left 4 Dead. Got it as a gift, didn't think I'd like it, but I was way wrong. It's lots of fun, I love the emphasis on teamwork.

The story in Spec Ops is just amazing. Stick with it to the end - it's worth it.

#32 Posted by boredom_kills (190 posts) -

I'm working through the pile of shame - Metro 2033 at the moment. And it's one of the most atmospheric games I've ever played. As a shooter it's flawed, a bit buggy and the ammo as currency, while an AWESOME idea is bit of a pain in the ass in reality... but wow. You step into a tunnel with no idea of where it leads or what you're gonna come across, all the while checking ammo, light gauges, compass and filter in gas mask. Worth a go, if anyone's not played it.

For some reason im still finding the first borderlands cool

I really enjoyed Metro 2033. The shooting in other games is better, but few games I've played can match the atmosphere in it... very interested in Last Light. 

#40 Posted by konvikt_17 (22378 posts) -

Skyrim.

played some Black Ops multiplayer today, cuz my sister begged me to play. i found out, that i absolutely suck at that game:lol:

Then me and my sister played some Left 4 Dead 2 today. we dominated.

Outstanding and underrated.

As for what I'm playing, Bioshock Infinite and GoW Judgement

#44 Posted by TINYOWNSYOU (565 posts) -

Right now I'm focusing on GOW Judgement and Bioshock Infinite. I sometimes sprinkle a little Halo 4 and Far Cry 3 in there too.

And of course Minecraft.

#45 Posted by Spartan_N7 (581 posts) -
I just bought Bioshock 1 and 2 for my Playstation 3 to play before I buy Infinite, so I can remember whats going on. I also just bought Dishonored on Playstation and my friend brought down Tomb Raider for me to play while she's down.
#46 Posted by 3eyedrazorback (16379 posts) -
Just bought Infinite and I've been playing some BF3 and Fifa 13. FIFA 13 because I've got VIFA and ACL leagues, but I'm ready to try out some Infinite.
#47 Posted by cprmauldin (1567 posts) -

On the 360, Kingdoms of Amalur. Playing it and Loving it.

#48 Posted by BlueChicagoRain (25 posts) -
As of now I've been playing a lot of AC3 multiplayer. I really want to get Army of TWO the Devils Cartel, tho. >.< I've also been playing minecraft a lot. I really need new games. Havent updated in a while.
#49 Posted by Spartan_N7 (581 posts) -
Repost, essentially; I just bought Bioshock 1, 2 and Infinite for Playstation 3. I want to jump into Infinite so bad, but it's been quite a while since Ive played the first 2 so I want to freshen up on it. I also bought Dishonored so Ill be jumping into that too. Ive been neglecting my Xbox lately, so I picked up Spec Ops: The Line after I got off work just a little while ago. Ill be busy over the next few weeks. I probably wont get Judgement until next month sometime, ha.
