L.A. Noire on PS3. The best game since Red Dead Redemption!

I started playing LA Noire, but I ended up getting sidetracked with playing Batman Arkham Asylum again. So I definitely need to get back and finish Noire.

Having just finished Gears Of War 2, I'm going to run through a laundry's list of Demo before going back and playing GoW2 on **** Mode.

Demo's to play:

Fight Night Champion
WWE All Stars

I can't download NHL 12 or Space Marine until I upgrade back to Gold Member status. I'll grab those tomorrow. As for the demo's I'm gonna try out, I'm not necessarily looking to buy those. Just want to see what's new.

So with the new iPad, games galore for it. I like games, but can't imagine playing any great amount of time on it.
I ran across this game Contre Jour...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Txy2a7keZCw

I have a love hate relationship with puzzles. I can get easily frustrated, but at the same time feel a need to complete it. I've been playing Angry Birds and while I get through the puzzles when I can, I can easily give it up as well.

So debating whether to put $3 towards it. It does look fun.

I also have Rocksmith, Assassins Creed 3 and Crysis 2 coming as well. Scored some great deals on eBay over the last few days. Can't wait till the other games arrive.

Just played it to check it out. Gotta finish Assassin's Creed III though, so I will be resuming that later tonight. Plus, it will give my left forearm some time to rest. It's already fatigue from playing on hours worth of Rocksmith.

Catching up on the Rev3 coverage of PAX (and I gotta say I'm enjoying it more than any G4 coverage of this kind of thing, less "excitable" but still plenty of content) and I gotta say... I wanna try out that Oculus Rift.  Wow.  One of the dudes at the company mentioned that someone had made an N64 emulator with head-tracking for the camera, I would LOVE to play a VR version of Super Mario 64.

And those indie games look pretty awesome, they definitely interest me way more than the 60 dollar franchise properties.
Title: Re: What Games Are You Playing?
Post by: Chiprocks1 on September 09, 2013, 08:57:21 pm
The Oculus Rift is something I am veeeeeeeery interested in. FYI, G4 sucks. Well, in its final year it certainly did. I would like to see Morgan Webb find her way over to Rev3, but I haven't heard anything about her since they closed the doors on G4.
Title: Re: What Games Are You Playing?
Post by: Neumatic on September 09, 2013, 09:35:37 pm
Yeah, I remember G4 being pretty crummy, I'm an old school TechTV head, heck, I watched ZDNet back in the day.

Would like to see Morgan back in the game but she's probably found something new to do.

Bailed on GTA Online because it's BEYOND frustrating! Everything about it is broken. I tried leveling up some more, only to lose it all once I closed out of the game. Not going to bother with it until it's fixed. Figure that I might as well make my free Gold Weekend count by playing some Gears instead.

GTA V Online

I'm until 4 days ago, I hadn't played GTA V in quite some time. Actually would just watch certain gamers playing it, which afforded me the luxury of getting other stuff done at the same time. Well, that all changed once I redeemed a Free Gold Membership card, good for 1 month. So, as you can guessed, I have been trying to make it count and get as much GTA V Online gaming done as possible. There is a ton of sh*t that I need to complete and I'm nowhere close to getting there. Been having a blast playing it and it has given the game a shot in the arm. With that said, I don't want to play an entire month of just this game. Gonna work in Gears of War 3, Fight Night Championship, Red Dead Redemption and any other games I find in my drawer.

Hitman: Absolution

Well, I never finished this the first time around which I got a couple of years ago. I think I got maybe halfway through it before moving onto something. Decided to dust this one off and start from the beginning because I wanted to see what the game looked like on my 50 Inch Vizio. It looks AMAZING. It's like a completely different game. I spent maybe an hour just playing it. With that said, I don't know if I will stick with it. The game really drives home the stealth aspect of getting through each level and because I'm coming straight from GTA V, playing Absolution is just waaaaaaay to slow for me. It's boring as f*ck at times. I dunno, we shall see if I continue onward. I just love the over the top kinetic energy and mayhem that GTA V provides. Absolution is the exact opposite.

As a Gold Member on Xbox 360, each month we get two free games to download. This month, well a few days ago, they offered up Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. Grabbed it last night and played some. Played a bit more tonight. It looks great. The detail for the scenery is amazing. This is a AAA Title and one that I had intended on buying on disc last year. I never did. Kinda cool to be getting a game that cost $60 new, $30 used....for free. It took awhile to download off the Xbox Servers as the file size is a whopping 7.5 gb.

Just finished all of Monument Valley... all three things of it : the main game, the appendices, and Ida's Dream.  Just wonderful, something I'd been intending to play for a long time and it totally lived up to the hype.  I've always loved Escher so the idea of a game where you get to explore that kind of world is very appealing to me.  And the gameplay evolves very naturally and very interestingly.

And I had no idea I would connect so much to a little white cone or a little yellow column.

I played a little bit of Grid 2 and then got bored with it pretty fast. Really not a racing car kinda guy. I like open world games where I get to choose what I want to do and when. Enter Red Dead Redemption. I've been wanting to revisit the game for a long time. The last time I actually played it from the start was when the game came out.....all the way back in 2010. Man, time sure does fly by.

I started playing Sleeping Dogs: The Definitive Edition last week, but I'm losing interest in the game, but not for the reason you think. On the surface, the game looks amazing, especially the Hong Kong sandbox we get to play in. The story...so far seems interesting too. So, what's wrong with the game? The Camera Controls is beyond wonky.....it's infuriating. I try looking one way and the camera goes in the complete opposite direction...just makes for a very unpleasant experience. It takes me completely out of the game every time. Not good.

Not playing, but dang I"m interesting in Sonic Mania... it's nostalgia done right, and everything I've seen in the levels looks amazing and interesting.

But what I really wanted to share was the opening animation.  Wow!  Looks more like a cartoon than almost any cartoon I've seen in I don't know how long.  Especially love the little bits like Knuckles hanging on to the spinning ring.

We got a bunch of SNES Minis at work today so I bit the bullet and I bought one, I didn't get much of a discount though.

Now, I never had the SNES growing up, I went from the old NES and GameBoy combo to the N64 when I moved back to the states.  My friends had some, and I know I have SOME experience with some of the games.

The device is pretty cute, though the door hinge to get the controllers in is a bit tricky.  I do like that it's USB-C powered, meaning you could run this off a battery, I suppose.  Would be great for taking in the car for a trip.  I can easily imagine modders adding a screen to this and making it a portable unit.  In fact, I'm surprised I haven't heard of that being made back.

I was thinking I would record an unboxing video fro that as a test, but there are a ton of unboxing videos for these and I really didn't want to set up a camera thing right now.  Plus I don't have any way to capture the footage so I couldn't really do a follow-up on them.

The controllers take a little more getting used to, I went three levels into Super Mario World and I was sill trying to figure out what each button did... I guess I'm not wired like that yet.

Well, it's already out of the box.  But I did put it back into the box.  I had some musings about the differences between the NES and SNES in terms of animation but it feels like it would be.. a bit rehearsed.
