Played the tutorial/intro thingy to SC Blacklist.
Just about wet my pants.
It looks SO RIDICULOUSLY GORGEUOUS ON LOW SETTINGS 800X600 RES!!!!!
And oddly enough, I almost (incoming heresy) prefer the new Sam Fisher voice actor. The game feels non-canon, becasue he sounds and looks younger, same with Grimmsdottir. Can' wait to actually dig into the game this weekend.

Force Unleashed II

Lots of fun, tho was kinda lacking a plot.
I am the Slayer... Of creepers... maybe a skele or two... and occasionally a zombie...

Anyone want some gunpowder?

Knights of the Old Republic II.

Ugh...I stopped liking this a few days ago, but I realized last night that I genuinely hated it. Last time I genuinely hated a game was Dead Space: Extraction.

I'm at the point where I was planning on quitting, but reading the end so I could have closure. But I realized I don't care. O_o I don't know if that's ever happened. XD

PROCEED WITH RANT!
Spoiler:
My first complaint is that the characters aren't individuals, but flat and nigh lifeless stereotypes. At 16 hours into the game, I still haven't found one I really cared about (with the possible exception of Bao-Dur), and the other person I was starting to like had some incredibly disturbing background and dialogue. XD I don't even like the Exile, and I'm him. Instead of the friendships I cared about bolstering in the first game, learning about the interesting stories each character had, I was encouraged (fully lightside, by the way) by the game (and several characters) to treat them as followers and disciples, only learning about them to gain influence with them to get them to obey. There's even an "inspire followers" Force power. -_-

That felt creepy and manipulative to me. I never felt in the first game that I was manipulating people. I was genuinely interested in their back stories, and went to the trouble of learning about them because I cared. Not because I wanted sheep I could depend on to save my rumpus or throw into the fire. I never played darkside, but it felt like the characters followed Reven because they liked him, or because they knew he could save the galaxy.

My second complaint is that the dialogue options are terrible. They either aren't clear to me (I gave an answer I thought was neutral and gained darkside points. @_@), or chopped into unintelligible bits. I had a conversation with one of the characters where he was getting gassy, and expletivy, and annoyed, only to have it end with influence gained and him being my new BFF/slave. And I had no real idea what I'd said, because his responses and my answers weren't really syncing up. If that was one character, I'd get over it. But it's happened with pretty much all of my sheep, and frequently with any real conversations you have.

That's deadly on a game based primarily on story building and dialogue. And keep in mind, whenever asked, I answered that I considered the other characters my friends. It was generally answered with "yeah, right".

Which is another difference here. It feels like they really wanted to base this on the action, and left the story to rot. The action isn't that good in this game. XD It's loosely turn-based, but once you get a few key force powers, you just stun everyone and power attack them. Nothing else is needed.

I'm...I dunno. The first game was so amazing. This one isn't as good, isn't as fun, and is much darker. But not in an "overcome the darkness" sort of way, but more like "emo kid". I'm not even going to bother finishing this. I can't remember that ever happening in a game. But I just can't force myself.

Yes. That was a pun.

Entertaining rant chozon1!

The last game I played was Bravely Default. This game utilizes every aspect of the 3DS so well....the 3D effects are simply amazing. So much depth in the town and environments. The AR intro was pleasantly different (and probably a modern day ploy to make sure you're the original owner with access to the game's manual.)

I'm interested in that game...looks great.

I played Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon.

I'm actually really enjoying it. It's not quite the same as the original, but still very good. It's mission style, rather than the open environment of the first. But at the same time, done this way, it enables multiple locations. Which is awesome. And they're pretty large locales, too.

Plus, I never really realized how good the 3DS/2DS graphics were. :O

NHL 09 on PC
Got it in the EA Sports Classic bundle on Amazon for two bucks (Along with Madden NFL 08)
Pretty solid hockey game, but no where near as good as 2003 and 2004 were.
