What video game are you playing right now?

Post by Gentleman of Dread » Mon Feb 21, 2011 8:29 am

I am playing a lovely little game called Animal Crossing. Whilst the graphics leave something to be desired, there is such an overlying sense of plot that I just can't stop playing.

OH MY GOD THE GIZOIDS ARE TAKING OVER AREN'T THEY THAT'S THE UNDERLYING THEME OF THE GAME.

I juggle so many video games at once it's pretty stupid.

PC/Mac:
- Minecraft is off and on right now, it's a good game to mellow out with, but I don't take it nearly as seriously as some of my friends do. It also runs on my Macbook, which means I can sit in the Academic Commons and get nothing done in there.
- When I actually sit down at the PC, I'll try a few levels of Super Meat Boy, but that usually doesn't get too far before I get tremendously frustrated.

PSP:
- Lunar Silver Star Harmony right now. I'm close to the end, heading to the Black Dragon and completely forgetting how to get through the Cursed Woods (or Hidden Woods, or whatever). I can see the exit and forget how to get past the tree. No one in that stupid town is helping either. I'm not looking to 100% this game, just finish it, and if my fourth grade memory serves correctly, I'm pretty close.
- I'm kind of breaking my own rule (see DS below) and also playing Persona 1 PSP, and hoping and praying that Atlus releases P2 Innocent Sin stateside. I want it so hard. In lieu of P2 not coming out, I'm planning on picking up P3P after finishing P1P and playing through as Female MC.

DS:
- Actually not playing anything. Didn't feel like grinding my Pokemans in SoulSilver any more so I kind of just stopped playing that one, and as much as I love Golden Sun and want to get back to 100%ing that game (which will come, I think I ended around the 50s and should have no problems taking my characters all the way to 99), I can only manage one handheld game at a time usually, and I did start Lunar before Golden Sun, even though I took a break for it. As such, I'm now breaking from Dark Dawn for Lunar.

PS3:
- Every other day or so I play a single round of NBA Jam Classic Campaign, I'm currently up to the tenth team, with no losses so far. My Celtics are beast, Ray Allen drainin' them threes all day erryday.
- Marvel vs. Capcom 3 came out Tuesday and I'm enjoying it... casually. I haven't started playing "for serious" at all yet, still in the experimenting phase. It doesn't help that my input is absolute garbage and I have serious difficulty pulling off just about any combo considered "acceptable." I'm not sure if this will be the game that I love enough that forces me to clean up my input.
- I got mad hype when Gran Turismo 5 came out, but actually didn't play it a ton after the first few weeks. Races got harder, and I realized that buying cars I *liked* was not a recipe for success, I had to buy all the cars that can straight beast first before I can buy cars I actually want. I bought a car I liked out of the gate (a Lotus Elise), but it only lasted me through the Beginner races before it was quickly outclassed. I then went for the only Alfa Romeo the game would let me have, but sure enough that wasn't a tank enough car either. So I have to go back and grind for cash in order to get a really blazing car that'll tackle all the challenges I need it to but... ugh grinding in a car game is so much time. I want to get my money's worth on this game though, so I pop it in from time to time and grind some stuff out. Also: fudge the Top Gear challenges.

SO THAT'S MY GAME DOCKET YUP

I haven't gotten around to Minecraft yet, but I might get to it once I've got some more free time to indulge in playing.

Last things I've played were Left 4 Dead 2 (360) and SSBB. Haven't really been actively gaming because I don't have the time necessary to sit down for a while and really get immersed.

I got back into playing Call of Duty 2 on Hardened a week ago but frustration got the best of me so I'm back to playing Picross 3D, doing my best to truncate my completion times. I've been contemplating buying Vanquish but Picross and CoD should be occupied until Pokemon Black and White are released.

I'm currently playing GTA IV (yeah, I know, hi 2008, how you doin')- clocked up about about 15 hours of game time now (although I tend to re-load my last save after I fail a mission, so actual time played is more than that). It's pretty good fun and the story is interesting enough, but the shooting can be a bit frustrating and clunky sometimes. I'll probably stick with it until the end though.

It's pretty good fun and the story is interesting enough, but the shooting can be a bit frustrating and clunky sometimes. I'll probably stick with it until the end though.
One of the principle problems I have with the game is the way gunfights work. Using cover is essential, but in the late game many missions set you up in scenarios where you can't find cover and you're facing a load of enemies with great cover (and often high ground too). Furthering, once you and your foe are both behind cover it becomes a guessing game of when can you shoot without getting shot at. This is why I'm currently stuck because all of the missions available to me have become like this.

Oh, and car chases are a right bitch. If you know there's a car chase at the end of a mission and you can access the car before the chase starts, either have Packie put a car bomb in place or shoot out the tires (which might get police on you but at least it works).

Yeah, I hear you there Atty. I think the lack of regenerating health doesn't help either, although that may just be Gears Of War and its ilk spoiling me. Failing missions is frustrating too because of the often lengthy drives between objectives (compounded by me re-loading my last save every time I guess, but that's my own fault), and even more so if you die towards the end of a long gunfight.

For car chases I've generally just tried to unload the uzi into them until their car sets on fire, but I'll bear in mind those tips in the future - of course, I still need to unlock Packie's car bomb ability, but that'll come in time. I agree that they're a pain in general though.

Such a cult game. =) Even though it's old and glitchy, it remains highly immersive thanks to a great story and atmosphere.

I've been playing Kingdom of Loathing lately, which works much better as a class with easy access to high quality booze for more adventures a day so I feel like stuff is getting done. Of other note, I've been using Rock Band 2 and Beatles Rock Band as a vocal trainer, and it's making me consider getting RB3 if only for access to a bigger song catalogue for that.

SD Gundam GASHAPONWARS. It's basically Advance Wars, but as a licenced game. And you can enter space. And you do all the fights between units yourself. And you can take down the Strike Freedom in a core booster.

It's actually the best licenced game. Ever.
