Child of Eden.

-Yes, it is Rez 2
-Yes, if you play through levels 1 through 6 in one sitting, it's about 90 minutes
-No, it will take you longer than that to beat the game
-Because this game is NO FUCKING JOKE. It is, at the very least, 3 times as hard as REZ. I don't even see how you could beat level 4 with the kinect.

Best Shump i've played in some time. Had to stop due to gym fatigue and pineapple juice coma.

No more heroes is fucking terrible.

Seriously, I don't understand why people give it a pass. It looks terrible, it plays terrible, it's a bad game. Just because random crazy shit happens like turning into a tiger occationally happens doesn't make it good. The constant penis stuff (in this and in shadows of the damned) is funny ONCE. When you turn it into a game mechanic, it becomes stupid.

Oh wait, now I remember, it's DRENCHED in style and interesting characters. I wish Mikami worked with Suda on THAT game, because at the very least, we could have gotten something as good, if not better than Bayonetta. But Suda51 though that making a shitty game could be used as alagory for how old 8 bit games were, needlessly frustrating and containing things not integral to the main quest. And that game SUFFERS for it, both of them do. It's kind of shame that the game those two decide to work on first is a 3rd person shooter. Vanquish wasn't great.

I'm not even excited for the PS3 version coming out because THEY'RE NOT FIXING ANYTHING THAT WAS WRONG WITH THAT GAME. It's just prettier, it will still be a kick in the balls to play.

You should. The story throughout the game doesn't really change like it did in the first game, sadly. The only thing that really changes is how you finish missions. And practically all of the lines, even Cole's, stay the same no matter what karmic alignment you're on. The only differences in inFamous 2 are at the very beginning, and the two endings.

Did you see the lighting bolt as Zeke and Cole's body went into the horizon? That may hint something.

I think it's best that we agree to disagree on NMH and Vanquish. I had a ton of fun compared with both games, but hey, if you don't like em, I'm not gonna get all ASS-BURGERS on ya. Different strokes for different folks, etc.

Meanwhile, the more I play Metroid Fusion, the more I realized how badly Nintendo has shit on that franchise outside of the Prime series. Especially when it comes to the DS.

WHAT?!? No I didn't!! There is hope! /tearsofjoy

I wonder what this means Kuo could have survived? If that's some type of foreshadowing? >_>

As easy and tempting as it would be the only reason I'm not going to is because I need to work for something by playing on the Infamous side. It's probably not as horrible as it sounds, siding with Nix on everything, but I'd honestly rather play through as an Infamous character for the ending rather than the trophies. I'm going to get all the non-Infamous trophies I can with my first game then just zip through the story on a lower difficult for the trophies and take on the Evil side missions.

Vanquish wasn't terrible, it just wasn't...the Bayonetta of 3rd person shooters. It was an okay game though, my standards are INCREDIBLY high as I have over 200 hours clocked in on THE BEST 3rd person shooter of all time, which is Unreal Championship 2.

As for NHH and NMH2, I will watch someone play through that game and enjoy it. But I will never actually play those games again.

Oh agreed then. I thought Vanquish was a great game, but not the cream of the crop. A cult-classic at best, and definetly not up there with Bayo.

UnChamp2 was CRAZY fun. But I'm fairly certain there's like maybe 5 of us who actually played it.

I'd say Uncharted 2 is the best 3ps, but Uncharted is more of an adventure. And I know from work that lotsa people despise most attempts to make you care about what's going on (hence why COD is brainlessly followed when there's far more enjoyable games out there).So I can understand when an overall experience loses the popularity contest.

I thought it was a nice touch that it forms a question mark.


Oh, and I beat Shadows of the Damned. It was very short. Which was probably a good thing, since there wasn't really a whole lot of variety outside of a couple "puzzles."

Overall, I enjoyed it, but I could have done without the sidescrolling sections. They were about as out of place as the 8-bit job missions in NMH2, but at least those were optional. And awesome.

And as Mesoian said, there are a lot of penis jokes. A lot. No More Heroes doesn't even come close. If that's your thing, then you'll love it. For anyone else? Eh.

It's also really glitchy, which is kind of expected from Grasshopper and UE3, but still unfortunate.

I forgot that I bought "Untold Stories" for RE5. I loaned it to a family member and hadn't seen it in nearly a year. Finally got it back and played "Lost in Nighmares".
Meh.

Lost in Nightmares was the best thing about Resident Evil 5.

By far.

Got Trenched.

It's fun. Scratches an itch I had. Don't know how long I'll keep playing it though.
