  1. Is Rise of the Tomb Raider worth a buy?

    It's fine if Rise of the Tomb Raider didn't appeal to you, but calling it a 5.0 and mediocrity at its best is going overboard IMO. Despite you not personally liking it, it's still a quality game. You're the first person that I know of who disliked it so much, and you're pretty much alone in your negativity of it. You're of course entitled to your opinion of it, but it's one thing to personally dislike it and another to totally trash it like you've been doing.
  2. I never said that I wasn't enjoying Left 4 Dead 2, in fact I'm finding it to be really fun. It's a visceral FPS, and the chatter between the characters during gameplay adds to the experience. There are some good scripted events and set pieces as well that liven things up, but it had the potential to be better than it is. Some backstory for both the outbreak and the characters would have been nice, as well as just some more story in general.
  3. Yeah silly me for thinking that a zombie apocalypse survival game with an extensive cutscene opening that appears to be taken from story scenes from the game and has four different protagonists all with unique personalities would in fact be nothing more than an arcade twitch shooter completely lacking story, characterization, or mission variety.
  4. All of you keep mentioning Left 4 Dead, but I'm talking about Left 4 Dead 2 which according to reviews does have a story with cutscenes and characterization which Valve added due to complaints that the first game lacked any story or characterization.   The campaign that I started had my group of four on top of a building with a helicopter flying away, but there's a cutscene that shows them reaching the top of the building with the helicopter flying away so that happened in a campaign before the one that I started. Therefore, there does seem to be a correct order to the campaigns story-wise I just don't know what they are because the game allows you to select any campaign from the start. I was hoping that someone here who played it could tell me what the correct order to play the campaigns in was.   As for the game being meant to be played multiplayer, people say the same thing about Borderlands and Dead Island as well but I think that they're great single player games. What I've played of Left 4 Dead 2 seems fine as a single player game as well.
  5. I was under the impression that the Left 4 Dead games were multiplayer only, but then I discovered that they can be played single player so I decided to get Left 4 Dead 2 since I heard that it was better and longer than the first game.   I thought that it was going to be similar to Dead Island offering a story and adventure, but when I started it took me to a campaign select screen. I started the default campaign thinking that it was the first one that I was supposed to play, but the game just started on top of a building with a helicopter flying away with no backstory.   Is there any story to the game whatsoever, or is the entire game just selecting an area and killing waves of zombies in them with no real progression? Is there a certain order to play the campaigns in that gives the game a beginning, middle and end, or is the game simply selecting areas and killing zombies in them with no story at all?
  6. Games the Internet hates that you enjoy

    I don't know why it gets so much hate, either. While I was a little disappointed with it since it wasn't as good as Assassin's Creed II and Brotherhood (IMO), it was still a solid game throughout and not nearly as bad as a lot of people made it out to be IMO. I really liked the prologue/twist, and playing as young Connor. I thought that those aspects made it stand out. It became a little more typical Assassin's Creed when you played as adult Connor and there were some annoying bugs/glitches, but it was still entertaining from beginning to end. However, I do feel that Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is better. I still need to play Rogue, Unity and Syndicate.

    I never played X-Blades, but I really like the spiritual successor Blades of Time.

  9. I'll care about it when I get a PS4.
  10. This. One of the reasons why I'm still playing Xbox 360 and haven't gone current gen yet is because I don't play games as much now as I used to back when I was working four days a week instead of five. Also, my current job has me getting up between 4:30AM-5:30AM so I don't stay up late like I used to. I just don't have the time now to devote to all of my hobbies and interests like I used to, and since gaming is engaging I choose to do less engaging things during the week instead. I still sometimes play games during the week, but not as much as I did before. Now most of my gaming is done on the weekends. Gaming is one of my favorite hobbies and I would like to be able to spend more time doing it and play games on more than just one platform as I feel like I'm missing out on some really good games on other platforms, but alas with my current job I just can't spend as much time doing it as I would like to.
  11. Return of [drumroll]......ONIMUSHA!!

    Onimusha is one of my favorite game series, so I hope that this happens.
