Just finished Chrono Cross. That was really good. I enjoyed it a lot. It is a very good sequel to chrono trigger. I love how it took something so simple and straight forward in chrono trigger and really made it crazy and complex.
Some things I didn’t like were the big cast of characters. Well some of them were kinda cool, but over all I felt like I just ended up neglecting a lot of them and they just seemed like throw away people.June 4, 2012 at 12:21 am #35107
I finished Hitman: Blood Money a little while ago! It was quite satisfying and I’ll probably be playing it quite a few more times.June 6, 2012 at 9:33 am #35668
Finished Legend of Zelda OoT for 3DS and it was really good the controls felt great (even though it was a slider not a joystick). Used the two screens very well with the map and having more items on to quickly switch between them. The ocarina was set up great with you being able to play the songs while looking at the notes (before I would have it on paper). 3D is great and Master Quest is awesome. Also to note they still left a lot of glitches in the game but for the better if you want to speed run the game. I recommend it to any who has a 3DS and still hasn’t gotten this game yet.June 7, 2012 at 10:28 am #35903
My friend found is copy of Jak 3 and let me borrow it for some nostalgia. Definitely as fun as I remember it being and still a bit challenging at some parts. I wouldn’t mind seeing Naughty Dog making a return to the series some day.June 7, 2012 at 2:32 pm #35944
Finished my first run of Catherine, love the game. Speeding through to get the other endings now.June 12, 2012 at 11:23 pm #37142
Beat Batman: Arkham Asylum. Only real complaint is that I got tired of the setting by the end. The asylum was never that interesting to me. But that’s minor when you consider how fun the gameplay is. I especially love the combat. Took me a while to adjust — particularly because I recently played the Uncharted series, which lets you be super button mashy with the melee combat — but once I did, it felt so awesome to build up massive combos against the thugs. The predator rooms are great fun, too. I love blowing up walls into thugs.June 14, 2012 at 9:14 am #37297
last game i finished was command and conquer red alert 2June 15, 2012 at 6:31 am #37449
The other day I finished one of my many play-throughs of Fallout 2. I’m also nearly finished with my Give Me Deus Ex/Pacifist run in Human Revolution.June 16, 2012 at 12:19 pm #37709
My girlfriend and I finished off LotR: War in the North earlier in the week. The fighting was pretty samey but we both ultimately enjoyed it. Gutted that there wasn’t more interaction with the fellowship. Didn’t really feel like a proper LotR game that way.
Think we’re gonna bash through Rayman Origins next.June 18, 2012 at 8:54 am #38017
Just put the finishing touches on Bioshock. Gotta say, it’s nice to understand what all the hype was about. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters and story. There were some predictable plot points; but I don’t hold it against the game that much. As far as FPS games go, it was still a step above what I am used to. Now it’s off to play Bioshock 2.

Just finished Max Payne a few hours ago. A great third person shooter. With a great story and characters. Funny jokes. And its one of the best games Ive played all year.June 18, 2012 at 7:01 pm #38136
Beaten Alpha Protocol for the third or fourth time some days ago. I still love it.
I can understand the complaints, but as it stands I still say its one of the most unfairly underrated and overlooked games of this gen. Especially the way they handled the dialogue tree is amazing. Many games could learn from that.
And of course the writing and story is just brilliant, but that is to be expected when Obsidian does a project not only for the money (Dungeon Siege III I’m looking at you).
I’m sooooo happy that they are helping out Brian Fargo with the development of Wasteland 2. If that game keeps what it promises, then Fallout 4 by Bethesda can kiss my ass. I’m gonna pretend 3 never happened, accept New Vegas as a high quality spin-off, and call Wasteland 2 Fallout 3 from now on :PJune 25, 2012 at 8:24 am #39235
Finished Arkham City a couple of days ago. I 100 percent agree with Fraser’s assessment at the end of the Arkham City episodes: City feels much less restrictive than Asylum, and that’s a big part of why it is a much better game. City is just as linear as Asylum, no doubt, but both the setting and story are much more clever and subtle about both corralling the player while also maintaining the illusion of freedom. It’s linear in just the right way. Add onto that all the sidequests (which I haven’t finished yet), the additional gadgets (which make the predator sections a million times more fun), the added combat options, and on and on, and City beats Asylum, hands down.
Maybe the only part of City I would critique is that combat is made a bit too easy. Mastering the rhythm of combat is a big part of what makes Asylum fun. In City, though, the window for hitting and countering is widened just enough that mastery comes a bit too easily. But I can’t complain too much since combat is still crazy fun.

And now Bioshock 2 is finished. Have to say, a little disappointed by it. Technical troubles aside, the story itself didn’t draw me in as much as the first one. It was still decent though.June 26, 2012 at 2:42 am #39395

You should try the Minervas Den DLC for the game. I haven’t played it myself, but I’ve heard many people say it’s much better than the rest of Bioshock 2 because of it’s story.
