Re: What are you playing?

Time to move on to GoW3 now?

Started playing Alan Wake's American Nightmare. This is a standalone game that stars Alan Wake, but bot a teue continuation of the story. The story is close to on par with the original, which is awesome. The gameplay is good, but not as resourceful as the first as ammo is much more prevalent.

If you liked Alan Wake I would grab AWAN. If you haven't played Alan Wake then I would suggest grabbing it first as it was an amazing game. While the game could be played as a standalone, it does play off the original in the sense of the AW story takes place in the same vicinity of AWAN. Thus playing AW gives a much fuller backstory to the characters, places and Wake's reaction to them

Re: What are you playing?

Yes, as soon as I do the co-op campaign for Rage, which should be pretty short.

 

How long is gameplay for AWAN? I have Monday off and am thinking of getting it if I can get the majority of it done in one day. You've talked me into it. That's better than spending much more on SR:TT as we previously talked about. And then I'll pick up ME3.

 

I just need something short and sweet to tide me over. After all, what's a day off without gaming?

 

I was bored last night and played around with MW3 again. That game is so fun. I went 6-10!!! Hahaha I'm terrible.

Also: 2 more maps on Hard to go in DD. SO. CLOSE!!!! But those are the two that I seriously have tried 10 times and failed. No way I can beat them on my own. And then when I try to join games, I get kicked. Lameface. Hate when that happens.

How far I am into it and it's price point, AWAN is probably a 5 hour regular pace game. 3 hours for fast run through, 6-8 ish if you 100% it.

Re: What are you playing?

I need to replay ME2 before starting on ME3 goodness too.  Didn't realize that doing the one loyalty mission I had left would doom the Normandy crew on my first playthrough.

Re: What are you playing?

You have to hand it to Bioware, they made you care what heppened to the crew, not like in other games where if the die so what.  

 

I personally always play the good guy, so I decided on my 3rd playthrough to play all evil.  When the loyalty mission for Samara came up I literally paused to 10 minutes and started at the screen debating with myself before i killed her and replaced her with her evil daughter.   I had a hard time taking her out even though she was just a collection of electrons.  

 

That is a good game

Re: What are you playing?

BioWare does have that talent, don't they?  I made all dark-side choices in my 2nd or 3rd playthrough of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and felt AWFUL when I discovered what the in-story consequences were.

Re: What are you playing?

Mariel, I am overjoyed for you!  :robotoverjoyed:

 

I'm currently playing through Mass Effect 2 on insanity with the Infiltrator.  Up until now I haven't had to do much restarting missions but I'm at "abandoned" Collector Ship part that turns out to be an ambush and this is rough.  I don't know if I should have upgraded my weapons more or if I'm picking the wrong Squadmates but wow, I'm getting pwned.  I've got Miranda and Grunt; using Miranda for Warp and Grunt for Incindiary Ammo and general survivability, but he's not exactly surviving.

 

Any thoughts?
