One of the best shooters in recent memory. Glad to see its getting great support from the devs.

Crypt of the Necrodancer for me.

Edit: Also ended up getting Amazing Discoveries in outer space on a whim. Both have proven to be fantastic purchases.

Going to pick up This War of Mine on PS4 after work today. I'll give that a go along with my daily Rocket League fixation.
4  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: GOTY 2015 on: December 22, 2015, 02:38:45 PM
The Witcher 3

Not only the best game of the year but quite possibly the decade.

Runner up - Rocket League

Terrorist Hunt feels a bit janky at times because it's running at 30 FPS whereas online is 60. The transition is certainly noticeable.
6  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/PS4/XB1]Rainbow 6: Siege on: December 04, 2015, 05:47:56 PM
This is turning out to actually be on my short list of 'great' games this year behind Witcher and Rocket League. Very impressed.
7  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/PS4/XB1]Rainbow 6: Siege on: December 03, 2015, 09:23:21 PM
I absolutely suck at FPS these days but I rented this out of curiosity and am pleasantly surprised. While not a looker, it's got a great tactical feel and lends to some very involving matches. I could definitely see it maintaining a healthy competitive scene given the chance.
8  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (11/10) on: November 09, 2015, 07:25:36 PM
Just Fallout 4 which I have preloaded on PS4 taunting me.
9  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (10/27) on: October 27, 2015, 12:43:45 PM
Divinity on PS4. Been playing it all morning and it's excellent!
10  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Mad Max - open world game from Avalanche on: September 01, 2015, 06:24:24 PM
Been playing this pretty much all day. If you haven't tired of the "Ubisoft open world design" mixed with the Arkham combat style, you'll most likely love Mad Max.

The vehicle combat is ace and content wise it's absolutely stacked. I've played for six hours and only have a 6% completion. It's very pretty, too.
11  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (9/1) Snake? SNAKE?! SNAAAAAAKKEEEEE!!!!!! on: September 01, 2015, 06:19:54 PM
Mad Max (PS4) for me.
12  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (3/31) on: March 31, 2015, 03:39:08 PM
The Show, as it's the main reason I even bought a PS4.
13  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4] Bloodborne (previously known as Project Beast) on: March 26, 2015, 08:18:28 PM
I defeated Cleric my first attempt and since then hit a brick wall with Father G. Tried ringing a bell twice for help but no one ever joins. frown
14  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Helldivers: "You're it until you're dead or I find someone better" on: March 08, 2015, 02:28:50 PM
This and Zombie Army Trilogy are the best games I've played this year.

Love the coop mechanics in helldivers and how important communication and strategy comes into play for which is a usually mindless genre. It's brutal on mission difficulty 8+!
15  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: It's Almost Thanksgiving (USA! USA!), What's your GOTY? on: November 29, 2014, 05:34:32 PM
I've put away Far Cry 4 in favor of Dragon Age inquisition and haven't looked back. Around 18 hours in I'm ready to give it the nod for the best I've played this year, if not in a few years.
16  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (11/18) on: November 19, 2014, 01:56:37 PM
Just Far Cry 4 for me. It's been a lackluster year and I'm quite positive FC4 will be my favorite after absolutely loving the third.
17  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XB1/360/PS3/PS4/PC]The Evil Within on: October 16, 2014, 11:53:12 AM
It's definitely grew on me. So much that I went and bought it after initially renting from Redbox.

The first couple of chapters really aren't that great and Chapter 3 can be annoying with a lack of save points. Once you hit the fourth Chapter it becomes a lot better paced and more reminiscent of RE4 despite it being a lot tougher due to ammo scarcity.

No doubt about it, the game is tough and relies heavily on trial and error at times. It's a polarizing experience and has far too much jank for a supposed AAA game. The story is garbage and the voice acting downright amateur. However, I love these type of games and hope it sells well enough for a sequel.
18  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XB1/360/PS3/PS4/PC]The Evil Within on: October 14, 2014, 09:17:42 PM
So far I'm not very impressed. The zoomed in camera view, janky game play, and terrible voice acting has me glad I rented it.

It's a bit Resident Evil with a dash of Silent Hill but seems intent on being difficult for the sake of it.

Maybe it's just the fact I have Alien Isolation to continue playing, as I've found it to be much more impressive a game in the early going. Will give TEW at least a few more hours of my time but it's not looking like something I'm going to enjoy.

19  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Destiny -Bungie's new game with Activision on: September 09, 2014, 04:58:47 AM
Against my better judgment, I went to the midnight Games top launch. At least 150 people. Got home with the game and I can't even make it past the installation screen because the servers keep kicking me off.

Sigh.
20  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Games you are looking forward to in 2014? on: December 21, 2013, 02:05:44 PM
Titanfall, Thief (pending reviews,) and the next Halo.
21  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Weekend Playlist -- 12/20/13 on: December 21, 2013, 02:04:22 PM
I'm hooked on Assassins Creed IV (Xbone) currently. A few rounds of Powershot Golf in between.
22  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Weekend Playlist -- 11/22/13 on: November 23, 2013, 04:39:50 PM
Lots of Super Mario World 3D and A Link Between Worlds.
23  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: [3DS] Zelda A Link Between Worlds, Oracle of Ages/Seasons coming to eShop on: November 23, 2013, 02:49:37 AM
Trying to divide my limited gaming time between SMW3D and ALBW tonight. I'd be hard pressed to say which one I've enjoyed more thus far. Both phenomenal offerings from the big N.

Zelda is laced with sweet nostalgia and I can tell it will rank as one of my favorites when all is said and done. The visuals look so much better on the 3ds screen than what the trailers have shown. To be honest, I thought it looked quite bad but not so. Running at 60 fps in 3D is also quite impressive. More than anything else so far, I've been most smitten by the soundtrack. Using a set of Sennheiser buds, as the speakers on the XL suck, has been aurally orgasmic.

Great stuff, this.
24  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [wii u] Super Mario 3d World on: November 23, 2013, 02:39:40 AM
Played through World 1 with my wife. She's absolutely terrible at it but we had a lot of fun. The visuals are splendid and the stages have been varied with lots of cool designs. It's definitely not as 'epic' as SM64 or SMG were upon first playing but it's a blast in multiplayer.

I agree with the comment above about it being hard to judge jumping on enemies. The 3D display was invaluable for that in SML.
25  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The "No Next-Gen Console" Support Group on: November 21, 2013, 08:30:42 PM
I can afford them both but there really isn't anything on them I'd enjoy playing. Its quite possible I may never make the next-gen jump as I'm rather content gaming on the 3ds for a hour before bed most evenings. I suppose I'm just getting old but the leap in visuals doesn't really do it for me anymore.
26  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (11/18) on: November 18, 2013, 09:16:42 PM
Super Mario 3D World and the Zelda 3ds. Content in the old gen for awhile.
27  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (09/16) on: September 19, 2013, 08:02:29 PM
GTA V 360 for me. It'll be my last purchase of the year unless my son wants the new CoD.
28  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Grand Theft Auto V on: September 17, 2013, 02:24:09 PM
I just installed disc one to the USB drive and play off of disc two. Performance seems fine. A little pop in here and there but nothing too distracting. The frame rate appears to be around 30 with occasional drops. I'm very happy with performance overall considering this is eight year old hardware. It's going to be jaw dropping on PC if they ever port it.

The game just keeps getting better and better. Strong contender for game of the generation.
29  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Grand Theft Auto V on: September 17, 2013, 06:07:48 AM
Not quite sure why people are up in arms over the game being ultra violent. It's a trademark of the series.

Anyways, picked it up at midnight at my local Walmart. Played about 45 minutes after a lengthy install on 360. Graphics are much improved over IV, the arcadey driving is back (Yay,) and the world is absolutely massive from what I can tell.

Looking forward to digging in further when I haven't been up 23 hours straight.
30  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (09/09) on: September 10, 2013, 01:51:29 AM
Nothing. One more week of Diablo 3 play until a certain release next week consumes me.
31  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Diablo III --Impressions start on page 36 -- on: September 09, 2013, 12:39:25 AM
Got my WD up to level 36 tonight. Almost to Act 2 Nightmare. I tried playing on the Master 1 setting and holy shit is it hard. I guess I'm not well equipped enough just yet.   icon_razz

I've completed Act 1 and it's safe to say I prefer the console version. Feels better on a game pad, better loot drops, and couch coop is awesome of course. Playing on hard normal mode is pretty challenging so far but aside from losing item durability on death, there really isn't much of a penalty considering you can re spawn at your corpse after five seconds. I'm sure the gold hit will be a pain in later difficulties, however.

I feel like there are way less drops than the PC version (granted it's been months since I played on PC so not sure if that's changed)

That's correct. Less drops, better chance at quality loot that actually benefits the class you're playing.

Bought Diablo 3 on the 360 this morning. It's not as pretty as it is on PC but it plays awesomely on a game pad and is 60 fps to boot.

If they port Reaper of Souls to next gen consoles, I'll likely buy the game for a third time.  icon_surprised
35  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (06/10) on: June 10, 2013, 06:09:05 PM
Nothing. State of Decay has my undivided attention right now.

It also sucks that they apparently spawn zombies by you on certain missions, so even if you're careful to get to a house undetected, it still gets overrun when you get inside.  Joy.

That's disappointing. Scripted stuff like that seems so contrary to the emergent gameplay I thought they wanted us to experience.

I've seen very, very little of scripted stuff, and I've played what...10 hours by now?

One annoying thing is, that I read somewhere else that the game co

ntinues when you aren't playing, meaning that morale ill drop over time you are away from the game. If that is true, then its bullshit.

I just got a new base myself, and have way too many infestations around me right now. I have to say, you guys who have no difficulty handling a horde on your own when surprised - What kind of weapons do you use? I mean, you run out of stamina, your weapon can only hit one, maybe two zombies at a time, and hordes have around 10 of them?

Edit: Also, the other types of zombies are bastards!

I typically pop a snack and sprint some distance away to lay the fire bomb traps. Those usually decimate hordes with maybe a few stragglers left to clean up.

There's over 65k people on the leader boards so far. Not too shabby for its first day of release. My son and I have been taking turns playing it all day. Awesome game.

This is a great, great game. I'm having so much fun, trying to make ends meet, survive , and when its night, I' terrified. So far, I've spent 3 hours playing this, and its probably the most fun I've had this year gaming - I really, really recommend it!

Yes, I'd also have to agree. My only complaint with the game is the tearing and occasional frame rate drop.
39  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (06/03) on: June 03, 2013, 07:36:38 PM
I'm all over State of Decay (Xbla)

Nothing. Monaco was delayed.
