Which games are you currently playing?

basically name a game or more that you are currently playing (or have been recently) and say what you think of it.

Prince of Persia (newest): It is OK, not as good as the last 3, the removal of death as a deterrent is irritating, I wish they had not done it, it seems like a way to appeal to "casuals". I think the combat is dry and repetitive also.

Smash Bros:brawl: Overall an excellent game, however a lot of the mechanics from melee worked better in my opinion

Halo Wars: the best RTS I have played on a console, over simplified compared to PC ones, although that is to be expected. It is a pity Ensemble don't exist anymore

  • I played the demo for the new Mortal Kombat game. In one word... epic. lol I can't wait to get the full game.

    The demo made me go back and play DC vs MK which I still think is awesome. Not everyone liked it cause it toned down the blood but I still think it's a fun game.

    I'm also playing Marvel vs. Capcom 3. That one is fun as well but I can see my self playing Mortal Kombat more when that comes out.

    I'm also playing Disney's Hercules. lol They released it on the PSN and I used to play that a lot when I was little so I figured why the hell not?

    I'm playing a lot of other games as well. I tend to play many games at once which is normally why it takes so long for me to finish any.

  • Kingdom Hearts 2.

    I got bored in the starting town and stopped playing altogether. Probably won't get back into it again.

  • I'm surprised you went back to it after what I've heard from you about the last time you tried it. I'm sure you'd expect much more from me on the subject (and I'm sure you were dreading it as you clicked "post"), but all I'll say is that the prologue in Twilight Town may be long and dull, but if you get past that (which should be 4 hours tops for a first playthrough), the game picks up immensely, and as I've said before, I consider it the definitive game in the series.

    But ultimately, it's up to you whether or not you want to go back to it. Hell, I just gave up on a game because the last fifth of it is "Nintendo hard", so I'm certainly not going to try to twist your arm on it.

  • Kingdom Hearts 2 was very hard to get into. I mean, it takes forever for anything to happen. I actually almost traded it in because I felt the game would never pick up and become fun. But once I was finally able to leave that damn starting town the game got better. But then I got worried again because I seemed to be flying through all the worlds but then I found out that you return to each one several times.

    I never felt the game was hard though. I mean, I could actually set the controler on the table and hit x over and over again and kill even the largest groups of heartless.

    I'm still waiting for a real follow up. I'm not a fan of any of the handheld spin offs.

  • Ugh, four hours of that?

    ....Yes, that's all I got from your post. And yes, I saw it as a major point against picking the game up again.

  • You would. Here's my rebuttal.

  • F.E.A.R.

    Only because it's one of the many games I've got but never completed. Might do the same with Crysis.

    -Steamboat Bill-


    You know, I love Steamboat Willie. It has a link to a Buster Keaton film, and since Keaton is "the greatest of all the clowns in the history of cinema", I have to appreciate that. It's one of Mickey's earliest depictions, and it's the first to have many of Mickey's design elements; Which is, I'm sure, why Disney insists on portraying it as his first toon or as his "definitive" 20s short. It's a great short, obviously, any of the Ub Iwerks shorts are sheer genius. The main problem with the Kingdom Hearts game is that I don't really see a reverence for the era in the black and white zone, just a bunch of references. I know the distinction can be pretty slim, but it seemed to me like they were just throwing things in there without really an understanding of what it was or why it worked in the first place. I think this can especially be seen in the animations, which might as well have come from normal characters in the non-classic worlds. Timeless River should have an Iwerks-like flow to the animations, especially for Pete in the cutscenes, but it doesn't. It also doesn't help that Donald shouldn't exist in a black and white universe, since unlike Goofy/Dippy Dog, he doesn't appear in a black-and-white short. More than that, they were somewhat off when designing his "classic" outfit. I don't know how they look at a black bowtie and decide to make it white!

  • Speaking of Mickey Mouse I need to finish Epic Mickey..

    I wasn't trying to convince you to pick it up again. lol It's no where near as good as the first Kingdom Hearts so I would say that unless you're a fan of the series like I am then just skip it all together. The first one is the only one worth playing.
