XCOM: Enemy Unknown

 

Right now, id give it a solid 9/10 for what it offers. It's a bit hard for my tastes, so I've been finding myself restarting missions. This wouldn't be a problem in most games, but it makes me feel like I'm cheating. I also feel like every hard administrative decision I make is going to royaly **** me over in the long run. This game really keeps you on your toes, but if you love base management and turn based strategy you should look no further.

That's kinda fun being pitted against higher ranked people, made BC2 pretty cool. And "camping" is just a style of play that is never going to go away, seriously.

 

I should be getting my copy off a friend today or tomorrow or by the latest monday seeing as he doesn't like to show up to practice. Ordered AC3 on Amazon yesterday though for only $35, should be coming by Thursday.

Oh, I didn't address the camping issue. Not sure how it can't be dealt with easily. This isn't COD where you can just one shot people all day while camping. 1 well placed nade and a burst and they're done.

AC3! 9/10 Having some heavy playing sessions over the Thanksgiving Break! Really good all around game, love the story and the history that is thrown in. No other game has incorporated colonial days like Assassin's Creed 3.

Good to hear, mine hopefully comes within the next few days. 

 

How do you like the multiplayer? I've watched some videos and it looks like a ton of fun, much more tactical than most other games.

 

Edit:

 

This applies to Halo 4 camping, the part near the end is priceless:

The multiplayer is about as good as it can get with a game built around its campaign. It seems a lot more fun than past AC's, there are several game modes and all the ones I've played thus far are very fun. I also like that they are implementing a system like TF2 where you can pretty much customize the look and accessories of your character you play online. Overall its a good multiplayer that most people will be able to play for 50+. I can say that the overall experience might be a bit fatiguing, especially if you one just beat the campaign, but take a bit of a break from the game (play Halo 4.. maybe The New Hitman!) then come back and everyone should be ready for some more awesome combat from the AC series.

There's just too many bugs in the game which dice unfortunately doesnt seem to want to fix... Even though there have been 3 updates I think.

Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne: 9/10

A shooter that doesn't take itself too seriously, for once. Plays more like Quake 3 in third person rather than any 'modern' shooter. More than it's fair share of references and decent comedy, as well as featuring Max's unconscious mind.


Max Payne 3: 8/10

Sorta feels like it takes itself too seriously. However, on the second play through the humor is much easier to find.
Gameplay is much more like a modern game; I feel as it it has lost something by going in that direction. However, the cover system seems quite glitchy.
Lastly, Max is no longer the bulletproof madman that he was in Max Payne 2.
(Guess he aged a bit.)

After playing some Halo 4 online a couple of days ago, they improved the online.  It's not lag-free (what game without dedicated servers is?) but one thing I did notice is they reduced the auto-aim by A LOT!

I honestly wish there was a way to turn it off. It constantly gets me killed when I'm going for headshots and another guy runs by.

Started Dishonored. Not sure what to think yet.

 

Addicted to Skyrim again... I'd say 9.5/10

Dishonored was one of the best games I have ever played. Story was amazing and there is actually some replay ability, which is rare for single player campaigns. The combat is fluid and graphics are simply pristine. I'd give the game a 9/10 and a must play if you like stealth combat games. I took one point off because rather short story.

I don't know. I got 5 or so hours into it and didn't find it fun at all. Uninstalled and I don't miss it. It was suspenseful-ish I guess sneaking out the first time, but the gameplay started feeling repetitive and I'm not a fan of how the animations, motion and guns worked. Plus I started getting nausea. 6/10 maybe for me.

I actually turned off the auto-aim in Battlefield 3 once.  I couldn't hit a damn thing XD  But that does get highly annoying.  It would happen to me A LOT in Call of Duty.
