Yeah, I would say there were framerate issues. I guess that aspect of it never really bothered me, because I could tell the game was just trying to catch up with itself. I can image it must be really difficult to get all of the episodic stuff to work together. Like I said before you can tell the game is constantly pulling information from multiple save files. The game never froze on me or did anything that impacted gameplay. TWD was my Game of the Year in 2012, so clearly I loved it. The Wolf Among Us has potential to be really good... but it really needs to rebound after Episode 2.

Double post... but I'm still chugging away on Killzone Shadow Fall multiplayer. I'm starting to get really hooked on all the challenges and unlocks. They have a really interesting way of making you try out a handful of weapons before you unlock the next one... or the next cool attachment. I hate games that force you to play a multiplayer game a certain way to unlock everything, but this system encourages you to try new weapons/abilities and they reward you for getting good with them. 50 kills gets you a new gun, use an ability successfully a certain amount of times, etc. Also, this game looks absolutely gorgeous in multiplayer. It really isn't that much of a step down from the campaign, if at all. Only bad thing, is the people online vote for the same 2 maps all the damn time. It drives me crazy!!!

Started replaying Persona 4. Here goes another 60 or so hours of my life I should be using for something else. Also started playing Zone of the Enders 2. I don't think I've ever played a game that feels so smooth and fluid before, it's delicious. Shame the boss fights are some of the most infuriatingly awful pieces of shit I've ever played.

I finished Tomb Raider on PS4. Felt pretty much the same about it as before, but oh man is it good-looking on PS4. Had an issue with my copy of Ghost of Sparta, but got that settled with Gamefly and I should have a new one here tomorrow and be able to jump back into that. Otherwise not much happening game-wise for me.

I've started up Tearaway and Stealth Bastard (which I refuse to call Stealth Inc.) They're both pretty great. Tearaway is impossibly charming and Stealth BASTARD has some really great puzzles.

I also started playing Spelunky again. This game brings nothing but suffering to all who play it and I love it

Been playing a bit of Dustforce. Pretty cool, but I still haven't quite gotten the controls and I don't know what is wrong with me! Also back into Ghost of Sparta which is pretty sweet. I really like the new locations and enemies in this one.

got 22 hours in Lightning Returns so far I REALLY like it. Almost NOTHING about it is anything like the other XIII games. It reminds me so much of Majora's Mask and I love it. Time limit till doomsday, saving souls is kind of like making people happy to get their masks, and the garbs basically take the idea of the masks. FF was the last place i would think would make a game like this, but they did and its amazing

It's also really open too you can basically go and do whatever you want you just have to make sure you do uests since you have to in order to extend the time limit. Though some enemies can be pretty tough if you rush off anywhere, and you cant grind. You only level up from uests and otherwise euipment determines the majority of it.

If anyone else picks it up i'll say while you can go anywhere. Don't do the temple of the goddess till like last. It's boss is an asshole.

From the reviews/videos I've seen the battle system seems cool but the quests and story definitely put me off.

I've heard the quests are very MMO like. Comments?

Board uests are A LOT like MMO uests. The uests you get from NPCs can be like that, but I found a lot of them to be fairly interesting. A lot of the side stories are actually entertaining. Though among those theres way too many "find the random item hidden in a giant field thats fucking impossible to find. I mean if i had to count theres llike 10 of them but still....eugh.

I'll wait until it drops to $20. I still never beat XIII-2 because the majority of that game was a cake walk until the very last boss. IGN gave it a 7 I believe, but they gave the other two games higher scores and from what I see and what you said above it sounds better than those two games. Won't know for sure until I play it. Can you rank them in order of favorites?

It is imo way better than the other two, but its also waaaaaaaaay different. In terms of like everything even story it just feels leagues away from the other two. It basically takes place in a different world too.

FFXIII-2 Spoilers:
13-2's ending basically cause an apocalypse, and the world in LR is basically a post apocalyptic setting. Which is actually kind of cool to me at least

I will say this though since you mentioned it Bret. I'm sure you'd enjoy the main uest in the wildlands. It involves finding an injured chocobo and after you get it back to health its yours to ride and joins you in battle.

There's also this

I'm at the final boss on Zone Of The Enders 2 but I might just call it quits. I've spent ages trying to kill this fucker but I can't win and it feels completely unfair. It's not a test of skill of how I've progressed and learnt through the game at all. Throwing in some new mechanic then expecting me to be execute the most perfect dodges ever with it multiple times in a row or I lose 1/6 of my health is just absolute bullshit.

I finished up Ghost of Sparta. Huge improvement over Chains of Olympus. Daxter is still my favorite game by Ready at Dawn though!

I started up Ascension too. Almost finished this God of War ride.

I'd be so disappointed in you if you did like a GoW game more than Daxter Trip.

That's a good point. I think I'd be disappointed in myself.

Ascension feels a bit phoned in or something. I don't think its bad, it's pretty good. Maybe just a little been there done that for me especially having played them all in such proximity. I have no idea why the changed climbing to some sort of Uncharted-esque crap though. Blech.

It's weird, I liked God of War 1-3 but I played the Ascension demo and wanted NOTHING to do with it.

Why is that? I don't know what area the demo contained but it is hard to imagine it feeling so much different than 3 to elicit that sort of feeling.

I enjoyed Ascension. I don't think it is my favorite, but God of War games are like Metal Gear Solid games to me, they never really disappoint. I think those two franchises are the only franchises I can really say that about.

And Kay, I really do think I'd enjoy the game and having a chocobo sounds great. If I would have beat the second game I probably would have gotten it day 1, but I haven't and I don't feel like jumping around. Another thing is Final Fantasy X is coming out, and I'm going to be putting a lot of time into that and I'll probably start neglecting XIII-3. Man, talk about Final Fantasy overload....a game every month for 3 months with XIII-3, X and X-2, and XIV for PS4 which I"ll probably be getting after my wedding.

I don't remember what area specifically. but there was a bit where you were playing in a big building that was moving or falling or...something. And I was playing the demo on a projector, so a huge screen and I still could not really tell where Kratos was on the screen there was so much going on so I kept getting hit just because...

Ahhh... that actually makes sense. I know just where you mean. A few times it has zoomed out so far that I could not even keep track of where Kratos was. I know Greenman was complaining about it being overly cinematic and that camera angle I bet was a part of his issue.

The camera angle was half the reason I got irritated. The other half being I'd have to go through that stupid cutscene before the camera angle went to hell so many time, always dying because I can't tell what the hell's going on.

Now playing nothing because my PS3 Slim broke.

This gen sure has been amazing. In previous gens I only got to have one of each console like a loser because they'd never break but thankfully this gen Sony and Microsoft made me have to get their console 3 times! Seriously, I've had 5-6 consoles break on me this gen. Can't wait for my Vita to just up and die in 6 months or so then I can go back to my Gameboy which still fucking works to this day, as does my Wii which I've had for years before this. Heck, if I had the cables for it I guarantee my Nintendo 64 would still be perfectly functional as well.

Video games. The hobby where companies sell you unreliable hardware for hundreds and the games company sells you the other half of the product you bought as DLC.

Edit - After some research I'm 90% sure the problem is the disc drive as it still plays downloaded games. I'm buying a new drive for £55 and gonna be getting some console DIY up in this bitch. I'veneverdoneanythinglikethisbeforethisissuchadumbideaohgodwhatamIdoing.

TxK, the new Vita shooter, is pretty fucking good. If you've ever played Tempest or are aware of how that game controlled, the setup applies here: you shoot oncoming enemies and projectiles from the opposite side of the tube. Only, in this game, the shapes you navigate through aren't limited to tubes and they change after each level. Excellent sound design and music as well. It's still on sale for $7.99 but I'm sure a demo exists.

I've been lucky and haven't really had a break this gen. My original 60 GB PS3 had a problem where some games would have wonky colors, but for the most part the system still works. My Wii still works but it should since I never play it. I had 3 PS2's last gen though, so I guess I was owed one this time around. If my current ps3 died though I'd just buy a newer one with a bigger hard drive since I'm too lazy to figure out how to install a new one. 120 GB doesn't cut it with PS+.

I had an issue with my Wii and 360. Fortunately with both of those, I got a replacement one sent back for free that worked like a champ. Unfortunately the 360 one happened on my birthday when I got Gears 2 and Left 4 Dead as presents, I was so pissed.

I was looking at that but I think all the gameplay videos I saw were of people playing the easiest levels with the music turned off. It's good to know it's better than what those people made it look like. It really reminded me of Dyad, too. I loved that game.
