there are probably a few others that I just can't think of at the moment. Racing games have never made me sick

 

 

That's curious, to say the least. Racing games are famous for causing motion sickness on people with tendencies to suffer from it.

 

So Half Life 1 gives you motion sickness but Half Life 2 doesn't?

Image motion is similar to audio in the sense that just like people can notice differences between 16/44.1 and higher formats, so can (some, at least) people perceive frame rates higher than 60 despite the human eye supposedly being limited to 60fps, just like the whole hearing being limited to 20Hz-20kHz but people perceiving differences beyond that range.

Finished BioShock 2 before I went to bed this morning. 8/10.

 

I can appreciate not being able to obtain everything in a single play-through, but not being able to return to a level at all once you proceed severely hurts replayability on your current save file. I personally like to re-explore for areas that might not have been previously accessible due to needing a power or item obtained later in the game. So the literal one-way "train track" the game is on (you really do use a train to go from one level to the next lol) is my only real gripe.

Okay, okay...

 

BF3: Armored Kill gets higher than 0/10 for me..

 

Probably much more fun on a PC.

Great game. I liked that one better than the first. But I do echo you in wishing you could revisit levels. Especially if you accidentally miss an upgrade station(s) like I did.

 

Reminds me of Rage though. Once you get into the final level, you can't get back out -- and it autosaves as soon as you enter, so you have to have a backup file.

ugh, I bought it on sale....20gigs of space, it's just not worth the space. Not to mention it just looks awful; and yeah the judging distance was really hard....I don't know. It was like fallout and borderlands had an unplanned pregnancy and it came out wrong, that's really how I would describe that game.

I don't think it looks awful. It's just the perception of depth and size really threw me off in the game. Almost like playing a game with weird binoculars.

Playing it on PC i thought it just looked rancid most of the time. The skybox was the best part, the rest looked like a really halfassed port.



man, the depression of my Internet is setting in. Roughly 1242.5 hours, the amount of time it's going to take for me to squeeze borderlands 2 through my pipes. and I cant un-preorder through steam apparently.

post #2995 of 4752
Ah, well, I'm a console gamer, and it looked pretty good and fluid compared to whatever else is out there on consoles. I didn't care for the textures loading so close to you, but once they were loaded, it was a great looking game, perception issues aside.

Bastion 6/10

 

The game is gorgeous and the soundtrack is great. The graphics phenomenal.. But, something about my ADD tells me I'll never launch it again after the few hours I put into it today. I guess it's a little too repetitive or something. I don't know, there are plenty of upgrades.. Maybe it was too easy? 

I probably just didn't give it enough of a shot.

Bottom line, the game is gorgeous.. and good. Just might not be for everyone. Watch some videos and if it appeals to you, grab it.

post #2997 of 4752

It's one of the best game made in the last 5 years, IMO. I played through like...3 times. Did you do any of the arenas? They get tough...especially on the harder difficulties.

 

I loved pretty much everything about that game.

nope, I didn't even get that far. I dunno, it's totally my problem, and not the games.

If you didn't get to the first arena you're missing out on a ton of the game. Variety really comes when you get multiple weapons upgraded. Plus, the difficulty ramps up on your second playthrough.
