I was unsure of it myself, until I played the demo. That sold me. Was so much fun destroying shit.

I'd recommend you try Bioshock (1 before 2). It was just too much fun, and a different gaming experience to a lot of what I have played.
I also agree with trying S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl. So intense.

Huh, that's kinda odd.. there were so many issues with that game (EVERYTHING had bugs at the start) but running and jumping worked fairly normal.. I can only urge you to try it again someday with patches!

I am not sure it was the running and jumping part (dont remember really).. but what i generally dislike with games is that they want to use the entire keyboard for random stuff..
(like DnD online.. a brazillion different windows to cover the entire screen, all with its own shortcut somewhere)

thats one of the reason why i love bethesda games.. ~10 buttons, and youre off, all playercontrolls and stats run through one console using <tab>.

(what was terrible with dead space however, was the running and jumping part, that i remember )

Speaking of glitchy ass games, how bout that Fallout 3? Of course when considering a game of that peroration there's bound to be bugs, but not to that extent. I had to literally restart from scratch when I was near the end because the AI refused to move forward in a main mission. Don't know why I bothered since I didn't particularly care that much for the game in the first place ... or why I played all the dlc. Heh.

ah thanks for the reccomendation soundjunkie, i played a demo of STALKER on my old computer but it was such a piece of shit (the computer that is) it barely ran. ill look into it!
ive heard it compared to metro 2033, ive been interested in that game but i might wait for it to go down in price

to Gumtree, i actually own bioshock 1 and 2 for my ps3! they were amazing games, i think ive beat them both through 3 or 4 times each

also, im glad people post spoiler alerts!!! thanks go to lisra for starting that

The original Stalker is long since budget price. Only the two other parts (one prequel and one.. dunno) are slightly more expensive. And despite all the bugs, they are great games.

The game itself is solid. Very true to the original. Aside from unit balance there haven't been too many problems with the game. Heck, the stuff they implement such as facebook friend finding went more smoothly in beta than most other companies can achieve in a full release. Also, they allowed for editor testing which just finished up a few days ago. People have already remade games like Tower Defense and BattleCraft. Apparently the editor is powerful enough to make games of all genres, not being limited to rts.

2010 blew it's load far too early. Strongest first half and weakest holiday season lineup I've ever seen. Only game left this year I have to look forward to is Assassin's Creed Brotherhood ... At least the start of 2011 starts off with a bang. Let's just hope it can sustain a steady drip, unlike this year.

pssshhhhhhh. watching the clips from new vegas reminded me of some of the awsome and hilarious things i loved Fallout 3. black ops. i cant believe you are waiting from AC:b though, i heard there was 15 hrs of single player only. maybe you should pick up new vegas. 2011 is going to be huge. most anticipated release: portal 2 or the old republic or mvc 3 or details on an Elder Scrolls V

Probably even less than 15 hours, but that matters not. Quality over quantity my friend, which is why I don't need more of Fallout 3.

Next year looks insane on paper - Deus Ex 3, Mass Effect 3, Gears of War 3, Batman Arkham Asylum 2, Dead Space 2, Infamous 2, Spec Ops: The Line, Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, Metal Gear Solid: Rising, and Mortal Kombat. If all those do come out in 2011 then it will be the greatest year in gaming yet.
side quests in fallout beat the repetitive god fighting of ac 1 and 2. the only real thing i love about ac is the amazing environment and total exploration and climbing mechanics are unparalleled, but it seems like brotherhood is almost all combat based, no CTF. i highly doubt Mass Effect 3. TOR bioware is saying is bigger than all the games they've made put together, and its gonna be their flagship next year.

possibly the dumbmest thing you've ever written i think. its not really an AC game. it doesn't follow any of the main story, its just like AC 2.5 with the same environment and more charatars and zomg more templars, kill em all !!1 i can imagine multiplayer as a cool idea, and then again i cant, if you have modes like race or CTF, i dont see how it can be balanced well at all. everyone picks ezio for speed and climbing missions and then picks the tank character for combat. on the other hand fallout new vegas seems to have a completly new environment the same size as 3's wash DC map and the mere fact of exploring 15 story casinos has a fresh appeal that lacks when i look at ACB, plus another protectron with a cowboy hat.

it seems to me like those statements confirm my fears more than put them at ease. seems to me that Ezio would want to meditate on what he learned instead of trying to get back the artifact that he already used its purpose for. im an obsidian fanboi, with more hours in kotor 2 and alpha protocal than many other rpg, so i definitly want to see this matchup for my self, but we'll see, we both know that it'll win more GotY's than AC

kane and lynch 1 had possibly the greatest and most underrated multiplayer of all time



also i thought the combat in assassins creed was a lot of fun, silent hidden blade kills never get old imo, and exploration was fun, and so was seeing the huge cites from the rooftops . although on another note i only play them once and never go back...so i never get much replay from them.
and i'll probably play them both again in preperation for brotherhood, and again for AC3 (when it comes out in like......2-3 years )

I've tried to play fallout 3 after playing oblivion for a month or so, and it just felt like another like another boring oblivion expansion set.Same voice acting,even the main quest is as short as oblivion's .

spent most of yesterday playing starcraft 2 . in my opinion anyone who enjoyed the first game and remembers it fondly will love what they did with two


i find it holds true to the original, while at the same time expanding on nearly everything, new units are introduced, and the races all feel very different now, yet it still is incredibly balenced. they did away with a bunch of the useless units (like those terran bikes, the ones with spider mines, i forget their names, started with a v i think....wish theyd kept golaiths though...)

story mode is al ot of fun, they added a lot so that it doesnt just feel like your playing scenarios all the time, but you have a lot of story unique upgrades

the unit cap is still 200, but it feels like a lot compared to warcrafts 90/120. i had a match with a friend yesterday and won by sending in 17 battlecruisers, it was a massacre

my only complaints are that zerg cannot infest, dark archons are gone (but zerg can mind control i think), and nukes feel weak

still excellent game so far , looking forward to playing it a lot tonight
