Re: What are you currently playing?

Didn't know about that method..... :oops: lol.. note to self... Speedlolita's kicking my ass in halos.... :oops: You tried the telephones in the plaza? I like the Nunchuck guns... but 100 chapters does feel a bit extreme just for a weapon. I love the game as well its just the sheer amount of variety...

Re: What did you like/love but everyone else disliked/hated?

I think games should be played before judgement is passed. ;) Don't knock something until you've tried it.. has always been my stance. Tbf, I think that I haven't quite yet adjusted to this forums more relaxed approach to discussion. The trouble is on majority of the other forums I've used when air...

Re: What did you like/love but everyone else disliked/hated?

I think maybe with Nier it could just be that a large amount of gamers just aren't equipped mentally for the type of experience it offers. I've heard people use that arguement to defend games like Oblivion and Fallout 3 before which I just can't seem to enjoy and leave me feeling bored despite many...

Re: What are you currently playing?

You using the train... 10,000 halos a go method? Did you get the Ice Skates? I love those they increase your movement speed, let you walk on fire without taking damage and freeze the smaller enemies into ice blocks which can then be lifted and thrown at the other enemies. A few of those Alfheim port...

Re: Dead Space 2

Maybe because I've been playing vanquish so much, it just seemded so slow and clunky. It took me a while to readjust to shooters after playing Vanquish... :lol: My main curiousity is how Isaac's mental condition is going to be implemented into the game. I did enjoy the first game it had its tense m...

Re: What did you like/love but everyone else disliked/hated?

By the same token, playing beyond that point to reach this understanding doesn't make it an enjoyable or worthwhile experience, its just a pretty but repetitive shooter. Bioshock's whole 'this game offers something new when it really isn't' is the games method in pointing out the irony and flaws of...

Re: What did you like/love but everyone else disliked/hated?

The ultimate fanboy argument: that a game is so good that even its very real flaws are deiberate and thus contribute to the game itself. Of course, you have to be part of the Nier cult to see this. :roll: The reality is that the fanboy back-engineers the game's mediocrity into conceptual brilliance...

Re: What did you like/love but everyone else disliked/hated?

Nier; Ubelievable that so many of you are defending the bad camera angles and control issues, the japanese stereotyping, the tediously standard fetch and carrry mission structure and the generally low standard of the game's presentation in the way that you all are. To say these things are a deliber...

Re: What did you like/love but everyone else disliked/hated?

If the developers were trying to pull off some sort of amazing double-take with this game then they have completely failed. The game is flat and lifeless from the start and it has nothing to do with setting up some future plot revelation. It's no good banging on and on about how this is all deliber...

Re: What did you like/love but everyone else disliked/hated?

Yeah? What I saw was completely average. Go figure. I completely understand as to why a lot of people view Nier as an average game and give up on it. After sinking about 3hrs into the game a friend of mine came back and told me I was talking out of my backside, 'Nier should've been released about 5...

Re: What are you currently playing?

Thats definitely the way to go with the Yakuza games; there is a story over-view movie in Y3 but its not the same as playing them. The Yakuza games are a little akin to Metal Gear Solid in-terms of cut-scenes but unlike the Mgs there is tons more gameplay than there is cut-scenes. To give you a roug...

Re: What are you currently playing?

Just had a quick blast on Bayonetta for some quick pick up and play action. The Ps3 hasn't had a work out for some time so Yakuza 3 is going in as I type.

Can't say I remember that one.... I'm going to have a dig through my stuff... jog the memory banks.

Legendary was another game I took a lot of flak over liking.

Re: What are you currently playing?

I spent qute some time comparing PS2/Wii Okami back top back to see the differences. The Rice filter for Okami Is in the Wii version, it's not a case of it not being able to be done, it's just a lot more subtle and you're really only going to pick it up of you have a very nice video connection to t...
