Dang, want to buy XCOM so bad. And Dishonoured. And Borderlands 2. And The Witcher 2. And Guild Wars 2. But still sitting on Anno 2070, Battlefield 3, Borderlands, Brink, Bulletstorm, Crysis 2, Gratuitous Space Battles, Hard Reset, LA Noire, Legend of Grimrock, Serious Sam 3, all largely unplayed (damn Steam & Origin sales!) and currently playing through Mass Effect 3. Fuck.

It's excellent. I recommend playing through with a psycho run first - it's a lot of fun to use your powers properly. Then you can have a go at 'clean hands' (no kills, never detected) which limits you pretty much to blink and choke/sleep darts . It's also cool how the different run throughs affect the world.

I also recommend Mark of the Ninja on 360. I really enjoyed it, and ended up going for all achievements. Side scrolling stealth ninja game by the guys that did Shank.

Xcom was good for one full play through on classic ironman, but I can't be bothered to go again as there's not much different to do. As was said higher up the thread, you're pretty limited compared to the original games (which is good at first but annoying later).

Gave up on Witcher 2 - I had no clue what I was doing, even with the tutorial. Getting killed repeatedly got old, and I didnt fell like save grinding through it.

Its also out on steam (but I'd play it with a gamepad either way) and yes its a very good game, much better than Kleis other recent game Shank.

I'm a fair way in to Borderlands 2 and it's more Borderlands 1.5. It's good fun but pretty much just more of the same. Good laugh and should keep me going to Black Ops 2 I think...

I've totally thrashed borderlands 2, some minor disappointments in the general scheme of things, but nothing major. Like wanting to have more inventory space. But overall its been a pretty quality game. I've just finished my playthrough 2 on the commando so am now technically on "playthrough 2.5". I enjoyed the game don't get me wrong, but for me it just wasn't quite as good as borderlands 1 was. Mind you I did play all the DLC's for the first game so there was more content, but the fact that I really really really enjoyed borderlands 1, and that this hasn't reinvented itself, just did more of the same with slightly different classes (emphasis on the slightly) means that I've really enjoyed borderlands 2. Humor was there and tons of nice easter eggs to find. Personal fav was the TMNT and batman references.

Played through Halo Reach, was ok, much of the same. Looking forward to Halo 4.

Really enjoying Boardlands 2, got a bunch of keen mates and gradually playing through it, having some great laughs along the way. It really isn't any different to the first game, but the dialogue and the jokes are new and just as sharp.

Blac Ops 2 single player finished in about 10 hours. Wasn't exactly great compared to the previous campaigns...

Time to spend ages on multiplayer now. The attachment/perk unlock system is at least a new take. Lots of combinations :o

I played a bit of the Planetside 2 beta this evening just to make sure it wasn't a complete crock before wasting my money on it. Seems quite fun! Much like the first one really but with prettier graphics and better landscapes. It goes live on the 20th but I have a few beta keys if anyone fancies a go.

Old Thread resurrect! This aint no random shit so its going in here. This is game talk which this thread was originally used for, wasnt it?

Has anyone bought Rome2: Roam to TotalWar2 Rome 2 much ROME yet?

I'm gonna be all over that like a totalwar fan over a new release which he has been anticipating for quite some time. I bet Larch (if hes still alive/has fingers/hasn't converted into somekinda AI freak like Skynet yet) will get it, and probably Gwil, cos hes a massive homo that just wants to zoom in all the way during battles and look out for cocks dangling under those silly Roman skirts - YES I KNOW YOU DO GWIL.

I havent played any of the TW games since Medieval 2: Too much Mud, but Rome was always my favourite so I've been eagerly awaiting this proper sequel.

I have been playing Wargame: Airland Battle with a mate over the last few months and its been fantastic. It has a fully COOP campaign that is handled so well, I wish other games copied it. The host gets to control the war and orders the main units on the WARMAP around, but each battle is controlled by bother parties, with units and resources split between the two. It is awesome, but after 2 months of playing we can beat the AI easily, even on the harder settings (very hard is just a cheaty cuntmode). Rome2 needs a similar COOP mode, it would be the best thing since sliced wet bread.

Ohh and War Thunder. Thats good fun also

I've played The Last Of Us on PS and that's about it. Good story, the game itself wasn't amazing but alright. Stuck for what to get next, not even played a game in about two months.

Next COD probably :o

I've been getting my game on recently and catching up with stuff I missed as well as newer stuff.

Last of Us I loved, the gameplay is indeed tried and tested but I loved it and the story, you will know after the first 15/20 minutes if you're in or not.

Solforge - DCCG - similar to Magic the Gathering or Accession, free to play model with ways to earn new cards if you don't want to pay
Log in once every 24 hours
Win one game
Win three online games
each one will reward you with silver and a card/pack of cards, and with the silver you can buy more cards.

Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell - Blacklist
Similar to Conviction without the OMG YOU WUZ SEEN GAME OVER MAN!! if you fuck up the stealth then its run and gun time or run and hide. Scratched my stealth-em up itch after the Dishonored DLC was so short.

E.Y.E Divine Cybermancy - Did you like Desu Ex? Well this is to Deux Ex what Daggerfall was to Oblivion. Sure its not as polished, sure there is some jank and there is probably a game somewhere in between these two extremes but fuck me its got ambition and heart and is a fucktonne of fun. Read some reviews pick it up cheap and give it a whirl.

Call of Juarez Gunslinger - Ignore every other game in this franchise this is basically back to square one with some nice little touches, its almost like a shooter arcade machine.

Gunpoint - A fun little Indie stealth game along the same lines of Mark of the Ninja, no way near as vast/fun as that but considering this was one guy (well two but I think another just did the art work) its pretty good.

Edit

Almost forgot Zeno Clash 2 More ZenoClashy than 1 and definitely more batshit crazy if you liked the first one you'll like this the combat is really well done for a first person brawler if you never played the first one grab it its like £7 most of the time and drops into the sales constantly usually down to £3. The same guys (Basically three Brothers) did Rock of ages as well but I never played but its supposed to be fun.
