Video Game Discussion Thread Part 10: Video Games Fucking Suck

PS4 people, EA is giving Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare is free to download this weekend for PlayStation's 20th anniversary. It's normally a $40 game, get it while you can.

They're giving Mirror's Edge on PS3 too.

How's the replay value on Forza 2. Do you still play it a lot?

I'm going to assume that's probably a "no".

That's a shame, you're missing out if you're at all interested in space/rocketry/exploration. You basically take a space program and start with wee little rockets that can't take you to orbit, and eventually can get to orbit, land on the moons (in the game, Kerbin - which is the equivalent to Earth - has two moons), launch satellites, scientific probes, and space stations, and eventually send missions to and build bases on the other planets in the solar system. It's all very realistic in terms of the physics and controls of things like orbits and landings/launches.

This weekend I finally made my first Moon landings and got a satellite in polar orbit around the Moon. Next I'm going to try building a space station and putting it in orbit so I can have a base from which to launch missions to the other planets and run scientific experiments to unlock more powerful technologies.

It's in "early access" mode on Steam for $32.99, and worth every penny. Also, it's got a huge community and is being constantly updated by the developers. There are lots of mods that do anything from providing more technical information, to providing auto-pilot, to adding extra planets, comets and asteroids (which you can land on and grab and carry around the solar system) in the game.

VERY highly recommended. It's hard to learn at first but the satisfaction I felt when Jebediah planted my first flag on the Moon is a feeling of accomplishment that a video game has not given me in quite a long time.

I started Uncharted 1 back in 2012, got to the part with the jet skis and stopped. Picked up with 2, adored it and then played 3, which was extremely good but had too much gunplay and not enough platforming for my tastes. But still, terrific graphics and a great story. Generally very fun to play as well.

So I went back a week ago and started Uncharted 1 again so I could get the full story. It's easily my least favorite of the trilogy, too many control hiccups and bafflingly difficult sections, but it's mostly really good.

Drake's Fortune: 7.6
Among Thieves: 9.1
Drake's Deception: 8.4

Can't wait for A Thief's End. The gameplay footage we have is stellar.

If you like racers / car games at all, it's fantastic. It has an open world, so you can just drive around and take pictures of your car in awesome locations for hours. Also, once you "finish" the main story, the evens keep going on and on. You can seriously play for hundreds of hours after you finish the "main" part, and still earn trophies and such. Easily my favorite arcadey racing game in years.

It took me far longer than expected, but I beat Okami last night.

I'm really sad that game never got a sequel. It's probably the prettiest game ever made, but there were mechanical issues that could've done with some fine-tuning, and for the surprisingly long length, the upgrade system and missing rewards were VERY boring.

Also super disappointed that it's not the type of game you can return to to 100%. But, I do have a save file that would let me do that if I feel like it, so maybe I'll get around to it.

Hey, who's interested in being creeped the fuck out?



the guy talking through it is annoying but it almost helps having someone else there to lighten the mood a bit...

Holy fuck.

Silent Hill always freaked me out just a little too much. I don't think I'll be watching those videos based on the still of the first one alone
