Has anyone played the Shank games? 2 is free on Playstation plus, and I'm downloading the demo for 1... Just seeing if anyone has played and maybe liked them.

That Bioware one is whiny, but the rest are spot-on. The JRPG one actually reminds me of a minor WoW story involving my hunter:

Recently procured an enchantment for my gun by the name of Flintlocke's Woodchucker. It allows you to randomly shoot small critters from your gun, who then go on to attack the target as you're still shooting. Now I don't know if you're thinking what I thought, but it is downright outstanding.

No idea really. I just use 5 since it's free and it lets me entertain myself by being a stats geek. I don't actually manage the games.

The official boards will probably be more help than me.

Fuck Civ 5 :shifty:

I somehow just lost 5 hours of my day to that game. But, the good news: I finally wiped out the Chinese empire, have discovered satellites, so I know what the entire map looks like, AND I have access to tanks and other fun stuff that no one else has. Basically...slowly eliminate people one by one. Starting with India.

Only 5? King among men for willpower Ruki.

But yes . Always india. ALWAYS India.

How is Dragon Age? Worth a play or not?

Origins for sure. The expansion pack if you liked Origins and 2 only if you really liked the first two things.

Also my own question. Any thoughts on Prototype 2? I think it looks kinda cool but Christopher doesn't and we usually have to both be a bit into it to get it. Even though it looks cool I'm not sure I'm willing to use one of my exceptions to get it.

The first Prototype was boring as fuck. Apparently they've fixed that in 2, but I dunno, I've not been convinced yet. If it's anything like the first, it definitely looks more interesting than it actually is.

See I dont know I never played or was interested in the first one but it was on X play tonight and they made it look cool as hell. But that could be misleading like you said because of course they are going to make it look cool as hell when one of the designers is on their show.

Kind of a good example. This is pretty much the entire game. You run around, use powers to kill things in gruesome ways (which would be kind of cool, but gets old very fast) and there's not really much else to it. You go from point A to point B, maybe slaughtering inbetween, kill a bunch of people in a certain area and that mission is over. It's a game that would've worked well as like, a portion of a Spider-Man game where you play as Venom (which is essentially what this game is, Venom The Game. Which you'd think would be kind of hard to make boring... but it is), but as an entire game, it's very easy to get bored with. If you're the sort of person that played GTA so you could run around and kill stuff, with little interest in story, you'll probably enjoy it. But otherwise, the story is pretty much non-existent and the gameplay isn't fun enough to make up for that, so I'd say it's definitely a miss.

tl;dr version: I'd wait until the reviews or at least a demo comes out, but unless they say it's gotten a lot more fun... I wouldn't bother.

I liked the movement of prototype. Running straight up buildings with insane speed then elbow dropping a tank. Theres infiltration too. Theres some repetition but you get a feel of a city thats slowly tearing itself apart.

Prototype was fun to run around and smash stuff, but even then after a few hours of doing that it got boring. Storyline never really captured my interest either.

Thats what I worry about. It happens to me with all those games. Like GTA and Saints Row. I screw around doing fun stuff and for the first few hours I am having the time of my life. Then I try to get down to the actual game and I get bored.

Prototype was fucking dumb. It starts out like "hey, look at all these awesome powers and how much fun you can have" before taking them all away. Stupidity.

Like god of war and heavenly sword ?

Yes, like God of War and Heavenly Sword who also had this same stupid idea. Developers need to learn that it's not exciting to go from powerhouse to nobody in these games. I'd much rather start with nothing and build them up than get a taste of what the game will be like 10-20 hours from now, only to have to spend 10-20 hours having less fun.
