All About mufujifi
Yeh, so I decided on these 2 games instead of 1 new, over-priced title. Honestly, I was leaning towards getting Gears of War: Judgment but I saw that it was still fully-priced, which I don't think is worth it. As much as I REALLY want the game, and my sister saying that it's totally ok if I get it, I will feel bad about it. I'll just wait for either a price drop or for a used copy.
Binary Domain and Lords of Shadow were some 2 for xx-price deal, and it was still way cheaper than Judgment. I actually brought used copies to the counter, but the dude working there swapped it out with brand new copies and I was like, wahey thanks! Even better is that these are games I've been wanting to play so I'm really happy with what I got.
It's gonna be 1am soon but I'll be checking out Lords of Shadow after I'm done with this post. I wasn't aware that the 360 version requires 2 discs though. Apparently if you install the first disc into your HDD, you can then just stick in Disc 2 for the whole duration... or something to that effect. Ugh well I'm one of those rare people still using a 20GB hard drive and struggling with space, so I'll be having fun with disc swaps.
Oh and before I forget, I've beaten Warhammer 40k Space Marine, which eventually grew into a huge dull-fest. The only good thing about the game is that it got me interested in knowing more about the lore of the 40k universe, so I ordered a few books on it. Looking forward to getting them in the mail soon.
Then I installed Duke Nukem Forever, and it honestly isn't a bad game at all. I'll get more into it in the next blog post maybe. For now, I'm off to play Lords of Shadow.
My sister wants to buy me a game tomorrow, so I'm all GIVE ME:
BUT WHAT DO I WANT?
Life is so hard.
As you know, I'm currently playing the very mediocre game called Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine. It's not a BAD game, but it's just mind-numbingly dull. I have no idea what the heck is happening plot-wise, the characters are amazingly wooden, and the combat is fine but it does nothing new. kfjl mentioned that the game received a lot of decent review scores, and I don't want to judge because enjoyment is subjective, but uhm 7.0 (GOOD) on GS, really?
I've long since stopped looking at review scores, especially on GS because they seem all over the place, but sometimes you can't help but wonder if you would give them the same score. I know now that I won't ever score Space Marine a 7.0 EVER, and on the flipside, I want to see what games that I own that GS deem FAIR (that's below 7.0) and worse. So in addition to satiating my curiosity, I get to tackle my immense game collection somewhat.
I won't be listing ALL the titles I own because if I do, uhm I think that'll take 2 lifetimes for me to complete. Instead, they'll be titles that people would have at least heard of (I hope). Let's get on with the list, categorized by platform. Some of the scores might actually be from a different platform though, because the platform I got them on were not rated.
Aliens vs. Predator, 5.5 (MEDIOCRE)
Alpha Protocol, 6.0 (FAIR)
Arcania: Gothic 4, 5.0 (MEDIOCRE)
Dark Messiah of Might and Magic, 6.7 (FAIR)
Divinity II: Developer's Cut, 6.5 (FAIR)
Duke Nukem Forever, 3.5 (BAD)
Puzzle Quest Galactrix, 5.5 (MEDIOCRE)
Still Life, 6.7 (FAIR)
Ninety-Nine Nights, 5.9 (MEDIOCRE)
Infinite Undiscovery, 6.5 (FAIR)
The Last Remnant, 6.5 (FAIR)
Magna Carta 2, 6.0 (FAIR)
Atelier Rorona, 6.0 (FAIR)
Hyperdimension Neptunia, 3.0 (BAD)
Rune Factory: Tides of Destiny, 6.5 (FAIR)
White Knight Chronicles, 6.0 (FAIR)
White Knight Chronicles II, 6.5 (FAIR)
Oh wow I'm gonna kill myself with the many RPG titles on this list, but I will try my best. Weirdly, the RPG titles that I own that GS scored 7.0 or higher, I disliked. Like Trinity Universe on the PS3 for example, it scored a 7.0, and I could barely make myself play it for more than a couple of hours. It was so painful to play through - the voice acting (English AND Japanese), the combat, and the dungeon-crawling. I don't even need to mention the plot because you know that it's gonna be either stupid or stupid.
Also, I've been trying to beat RE6, and while I would much rather play the game on co-op, I really wouldn't give it a 4.5 overall. Just sayin'.
I can't say how I'll be picking what to play first, but I can say that I won't strictly be playing the listed games only. Come on man, I'll get depressed. Although I am strangely looking forward to playing the PC titles, especially Gothic 4, Divinity II and Duke Nukem Forever. Yup, Duke ferrealz.
And again, I need to stress this, I'm NOT trying to make a statement against GS's scoring system. I don't care much about what a game scores, I'm just curious if our opinions line up and I just want to tackle some of the games from my collection. It's a sort of motivation for me to start moving on the older games that I own, especially the RPGs. Oh mah gawd the RPGs. I'm glad that the Elder Scroll and Fallout games scored well on GS.
Look forward to the next update after I've beaten Space Marine then.
LOLZ just because I'm back to bumming at home for now...
And I have a coffee date this Saturday which I'm looking forward to. For once, it's with someone I know beforehand and I'm comfortable with his personality. He seems super nerdy and I like that because we have things to talk about. Also, he's passing me his unfinished Warhammer miniatures so I can finally fulfill my wish of painting them. But before that, I will need to buy the supplies even though I have no idea where to start.
... I'm sorry if my life is amazingly exciting right now.
