Here we go! All are PS3 unless noted otherwise.

January
Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood (8/10) - Liked it just as much as ACII, with just enough new stuff to keep it from being a total rehash. PS3 version had some of the same problems as ACII though, which was a bummer. At any rate, I can't wait for ACIII.
Dead Space 2 (8/10) - Basically more of the same, but story was near incomprehensible. Still really creepy and a thoroughly fun ride though.

February
Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Mini Land Mayhem (DS) (3/10) - Haven't played one of these since the GBA version, but man is this game lame. The puzzles are all pretty obvious and the boss fights are totally cheap.
Dead Rising 2 (8/10) - Doesn't actually get fun until you've leveled up a bit and stand a better chance at surviving (especially boss fights). But once I got to that point, I had a lot of fun with it.
Bulletstorm (2/10) - I'd be willing to overlook the juvenile dialogue and grating characters if there was actually some depth to the gameplay. As it is, this is just a run-of-the-mill FPS. Glitchy as hell too.

March
PixelJunk Shooter 2 (6/10) - Somehow manages to be more of the same yet not as fun as the first one. It's certainly more difficult, but I'm not sure that's the only reason I didn't have as much fun.

April
Portal 2 (10/10) - More of the same, but in the best possible way. Great sense of humor, puzzles that are intuitive yet challenging, and just enough new stuff brought to the table to keep it from feeling like a cash grab. Easily a contender for GOTY.

May
LA Noire (3/10) - Didn't actually finish this one. They captured the feel perfectly, but forgot the fun. The interrogation parts of the game were some of the most frustrating shit I've come across in a video game in some time.

June
inFAMOUS 2 (8/10) - Many improvements over the first game, but gets a bit tedious by the end. Voice acting and story were definitely a step down from the first game as well.

July
Dead Nation (8/10) - Very fun. Unfortunately very difficult to play during the day unless all the blinds are shut.
Limbo (7/10) - I enjoyed this to a point, but after that point I totally lost interest. No real reason for it; it's an incredibly well-made game. I just stopped playing it and never made my way back.

August
I actually don't think I played any video games at all this month. Crazy!

September
Resident Evil 4 (10/10) - Got the PS3 downloadable version, and the game is still one of the best I've ever played, though the control scheme has aged very poorly. But once I got back into the groove of it, I had no issues. I'm a little disappointed they didn't go the HD remake route though; they'll probably do that next generation.

October
Busy month, so again, I didn't play anything.

November
Batman: Arkham City (9/10) - It takes a little while to get into the groove of the game, but once it clicks, it’s a winner. Even after beating the game, it’s fun to just roam around the city and complete all the Riddler challenges; I think I actually spent more time doing that than playing through the story and side missions. The Catwoman DLC is pretty lame though, mostly because navigating her around the city is a bit of a chore and takes a lot more getting used to than Batman, especially since you don’t really spend a lot of time playing as Catwoman. I also don’t appreciate how often the few female characters - both good and evil - are referred to as “bitch” in the game; the incessant thug chatter throughout the game is annoying enough as it is without casual misogyny thrown in.

December
Assassin's Creed: Revelations (8/10): More of the same, but if it ain't broke, don't fix it. I liked most of the new stuff they threw in, and am glad they dropped the horseback riding. The carriage battles were awful, the tower defense stuff was lame, and the story was almost an afterthought. But overall, a really solid entry into the series that has me anxiously awaiting ACIII.

Finished 2011:
X-Men Arcade Game (B-) - Short but fun that brings out a lot of memories when I used to play it in the arcade. The only thing is that while online, you may experience a lot of lag at least in my experience on PSN.

Assassin's Creed II (A-) - I thought it was a great game with a good story and decent gameplay. I hated collecting the feathers but getting all of the trophies was well worth it.

Dead Nation (B-) - Fun little game that at times it get insane with the amount of zombies that surround you.

In for another year!

Finished in January:
* Medal of Honor (360) | Enjoyable if anti-climactic single-player campaign. Multiplayer is more of a chore than something that's actually fun. Grade: B

Finished in February:
* Battlefield: Bad Company (360) | A nice alternative to Call of Duty type games. Big, meaty levels to play through and a good sense of humor. Plus stuff blowed up real good. Grade: B

Finished in March:
* Singularity (360) | Very nice mashup of a ton of different games, most notably Bioshock. Kind of runs out of steam towards the end though. Grade: B

Finished in May:
* L.A. Noire (360) | Very, very good. Not great. Tech is great, story is not. Glad I played it though. Grade: B+

Finished in June:
* Mafia II (360) | L.A. Noire makes games like this look like shit. Cut-scenes aside though, this is another open world game with nothing to do in the open world. Story is decent but the main character is completely one-dimensional and not likable at all. Grade: C+
* Duke Nukem Forever (360) | All the other reviewers used up all the available hate towards this title. I had none left to dish out. Grade: C+

Finished in July:
* Transformers: War For Cybertron (360) | Decent story (except for the dialogue), multiplayer still has some legs. Grade: B-
* Dead to Rights: Retribution (360) | Surprisingly fun, if you can get past the dog violence. Grade: B-
* Tornado Outbreak (360) | I just don't know what's going on here. You're benevolent galactic space tornadoes destroying Earth in order to protect it. But then not. Grade: C-
* Need for Speed: Shift (360) | The racing is solid, but there's no reason to be racing. Grade: C
* Wolfenstein (360) | Surprised how solid this shooter was. Nifty setting, weapons, tech and story. Grade: B

Finished in September:
* Driver: San Francisco (360) | Lots of new ideas for what's essentially another driving around game. Solid rental for a weekend. Grade: B
* Bulletstorm (360) | Good action and shooting, but EMBARRASSING writing. 12 year olds would think this is childish. Grade: B-

Finished in November:
* Batman: Arkham City (360) | Not as good as Arkham Asylum, and that's really my only complaint. Grade: A
* Battlefield 3 (360) | Single player is a glitch-filled mess. Played 90 minutes of multiplayer and that was enough. Grade: C
* Need for Speed: The Run (360) | Story mode is too short & some weird physics issues are easily overlooked by a terrific overall idea and blazing fast speed. Grade: B
* Deus Ex: Human Revolution (360) | Deep, meaty story with a ton of things to do. None of the side missions feel cheap or worthless. Grade: B+
* Saints Row: The Third (360) | Exactly what I want a sandbox game to be: FUN. Probably will end up being my GOTY pick. Grade: A+
* WWE All Stars (360) | Good, arcade-y wrestling game with some great pre-packaged “What If?” scenarios. Not much to do once you finish that stuff though. Grade: B

Finished in December:
* Vanquish (360) | Best described as “Halo meets 9/11″. That doesn’t make sense now, but will when you play it. And you should. Ignore the awful tutorial section though. Grade: B
* WWE ’12 (360) | There is a lot to do in the game’s various modes. WCW plays a big part in Story Mode, which was nice to see. Controls are still way too complicated. Grade: B
* Lego Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures (360) | Parts of it are cute, while other parts make me want to go into an OCD freak out. Grade: B-
* Bayonetta (360) | Absolutely gorgeous game. Other than that, I have no idea what happens in it. Grade B+
* Saints Row 2 (360) | Interesting to play this AFTER playing through Saints Row The Third. That being said, you can see the flaws in this game that they then reworked into perfection for the next installment. Grade: B-

Abandoned:
* NCAA Football 11 (360) | Finished up all the reasonable achievements and then sold it off while it still had some value.
* Tiger Woods 11 (360) | See above.
* UFC 2009: Unleashed (360) | Not a sport I follow, and therefore the learning curve was too much work for too little reward. Plus the micromanagement in career mode is mindnumbing.
* Sonic the Hedgehog (360) | I have no idea which installment of this series I was playing, but I didn't play it long. Simply putrid.
* Split/Second (360) | Got to a point where I was having to go back and redo old races just to earn enough credits to play new races. Not my idea of fun. Was entertaining up until that point however.
* UFC 2010 (360) | I just don't have any patience for games about sports I don't follow.
* Vin Diesel Wheelman (360) | Man this thing was goofy fun until out of nowhere it got stupid hard. Might be my first documented case of rage quitting.
* Kingdom Under Fire: Circle of Doom (360) | Bleh. Just bleh. Push forward, mash X.
* TNA Impact! (360) | This isn't the worst wrestling game I've ever played, but there's just not much meat to it. Difficulty seems to be all over the place.
* Brink (360) | A multi-player game with a pseudo-single player mode tacked on. Not a lot of fun when played alone. Feels like work.
* Stuntman: Ignition (360) | I loved everything about this game, except actually playing it. What a shame... it's so unforgiving it sucks all the fun out.
* Velvet Assassin (360) | I do not like sneaking games (except, of course, Sneak King).
* Prince of Persia (360) | Decent enough at the start, but once the platforming got more complicated it wasn't something I was interested in pursuing.
* Enslaved: Journey to the West (360) | Good story, decent action and controls... I just knew I'd never get back to it.
* NBA 2K11 (360) | Sports games are starting to lose me.
* NCAA Football 12 (360) | Not feeling it this year.
* Shift 2: Unleashed (360) | In a lot of ways it's superior to the original. Great soundtrack too. Just have no interest in finishing it.

:lol: I'm having a hard time finishing anything. I'm getting a big fat 0 for January, a record for me. Halo Reach and Nazi Zombies just keep me from getting any other gaming done. I am working on Enslaved and Epic Mickey though.

Oh, I finished Fallout New Vegas, main story, 2 weeks ago. I also finished the DLC and a few achievements last week. I think I'm done with Fallout for a few months.

Right now I'm 3/4 through Dead Space 2, I should be able to finish it this week.

I don't think I have any new release in my future right now. So going back to the pile, Just Cause 2 maybe?

January: 0

Febuary : Alan Wake- Completed 2/4 Grade B; Even though it's very repetitive, i enjoyed the story even though i still cant figure out what happened at the end :lol:

Call of duty 4: Modern Warfare- Completed 2/7 Grade A + ; Loved this game from beginning to end. I must be the last guy to finish this game :lol:

Dragon Age: Origins- Completed 2/19- Total time: 40 hrs. 23 min. Grade A ; Enjoyed the music and voice acting. Graphics were okay. The story just didn't grab me until the end and felt like another run of the mill rpgs that brings nothing new to the table. Although i did think the Fade was pretty cool.

March: 0

April

Darksiders- completed 4/23- time to complete ; 25 hrs. 22 min. Grade A; Great game, but a big negative was that the games spike in difficulty after the first boss and the insanity of The Black Throne. It also felt a bit too long for an action adventure game.

May

Shatter (ps3) completed 5/22- time to complete n/a Grade B; Trippy ass graphics, nice soundtrack and controls were very basic. Good game but just didn't feel like it added much to the breakout formula. Game felt way too easy and although it may seem like a good amount of levels they can be beat on average a minute or less! I'd only recommend to download when it goes on sale in the future.

Halo: Reach completed 5/28- time to complete n/a Grade C- ; This was a disappointing entry in the series. Halo 1-3 i was able to finish in only a few sittings and within days. I kept playing and putting it off to play some other games. This one took a few months to finish. It just felt like every other halo that didn't add enough variety to gameplay. The only good thing about it was the spaceship dogfights. But those are few are far between with only one mission that excited me. I got to the end and thought i had one more level to go. Then the end credits hit. This was also the weakest ending to a halo. The epilogue was kinda cool i guess. I think i'm done with the series after this game.

Kirbys Epic Yarn (wii) completed 5/28- time to complete 7 hrs. 51 min. 01 sec. Grade A+ Wow this was a great game. Probably the best wii game i've played since Mario Galaxy. Beautiful graphics, great soundtrack and level design was well done. This is easily goty contender. It reminded me of how fun games can be and don't need a challenge all the time.

June

God Of War 2 (ps2) completed 6/12- time to complete: 19 hrs 31 min 09 sec difficulty: easy
Grade A- This was one of those games you feel a sense of accomplishment when you finally reach the end credits. This game was way too long for the genre but i loved every minute of it. It would get a perfect score if they had just shaved off a few hours and there were way too many puzzles that almost felt like they padded out to make it artificially longer. Graphics still hold up quite well. Music added to the immersion that you were playing an epic adventure. I just hope GOW3 improves on things and brings closure to he series.

July

Feeding Frenzy 2 (xbla) completed 7/2
Grade C- ; i usually like pop cap games but this one kinda bored me in the end. It's the most repetitive game from pop cap i've ever played. Not much variety in the levels.

August

Splosion Man (xbla) completed 8/3
Grade A + ; This was by far the best Arcade game for xbl i've played yet. The simple controls, cute graphics, great level and tons of humor that actually made me laugh a few times. This was well worth the 800 points and i would gladly pay 1600 for this title.

Harry Potter and the chamber of secrets (ps2) completed 8/6
Grade B- ; I was pleasantly surprised at how much fun i had with this game. I never played a HP game before but already have 2-5 so decided to try out the second. Graphics were okay given the time it was released. Voice acting was horrible! They should've fired the voice actors and just gone with the original cast. Game play although repetitive, had me hooked on wanting to see what new spell i would acquire next. Overall an underrated movie tie in that held my interest throughout.

Kingdom Hearts (ps2) completed 8/20 (42 hrs)
Grade A+ ; Damn this game was fun! I bought this game when it came out under the Greatest Hits line. Played a few hours, got stuck and ended up shelving it. Nearly ten years later i finally get back in and finish it till the end.
Graphics hold up well as the character models are pretty close to the source material. Music and sound are great as well. When i first heard the Winnie the pooh theme, i was in love with this game :)
Gameplay is fun but can get a bit repetitive at times. At least they added a few mini games to mix it up.
Replay value is good since i missed a winnie the pooh mini game and skipped some Colosseum tournaments.
Can't wait to play the sequel!

September- 0

October- 0

November


Gears of war 2 (xbox 360) completed 9/13
Grade: A + ; Another awesome game! It took me while to look past the over muscular macho man characters but once i did, had a great time. Gameplay is mixed up enough where you're not always ducking for cover and shooting ugly ass aliens. The vehicles were all fun to control much better than Halos vehicles.
Graphics were beautiful looking but at times felt a little dull.
Music and sound was good as well. Bring on GOW3!


Infamous 2nd playthrough (evil)

December

Splatterhouse 2010 (360) Completed 12/23
Easy difficulty Grade C; A fun mindless hack and slash. Crappy story okay graphics, controls were fine. Gameplay was a bit repetitive but was damn fun!

Kirbys Epic Yarn (wii)

I'd been having the same problem, Halo: Reach was taking up all my gaming time. Dragon Age II has pulled me out, we'll see what happens when I'm done with that though.

Finished my first big game of the year(and another reason why nothing else was getting played):

http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a76/MCorvin/Zuma80copy.jpg

That is a grand total of... drumroll please... 2,966* games of Zuma. :eek: At an average(just a guess) of 1:30 per game that works out to about 49 hours of Zuma. :lol:

Wow, really? I thought it was pretty easy up until the final handful objectives.

Some racing games I just can't wrap my head around. By that I just mean that in some, like Need For Speed, I do quite well. In others, like Split/Second, I'm just constantly crashing and screwing up.

I took a long break from focusing on gaming to build my blu-ray collection, but have just started to get back in the swing of things in the last couple months. So, I figure maybe listing this will help me try and crack down on finishing more games. Sadly, I've already got intentions to pick up Back to the Future, Scott Pilgrim and Pac-man in the PSN summer sale, so this list is probably only going to get worse.

I finally cracked open Dead Rising 2. Did Case Zero last week and plowed through DR2 in about 4 days. Of course achievement hunting in this one will take a loooooong ass time.

I also "prestiged" in Zuma Blitz on Facebook and have worked my way back up to level 60 again.

I finally cracked open Dead Rising 2. Did Case Zero last week and plowed through DR2 in about 4 days. Of course achievement hunting in this one will take a loooooong ass time.

It really doesn't take that long if you're using a guide to the individual goals such as posters or novelty weapons. The only painful one is the 72,000 kills, which take an entire playthrough of doing nothing but driving back and forth in a loop. And to make matters worse it has no reward, unlike DR1 with its amazing Mega-Buster. The multiplayer achievements are also extremely annoying, but I hold that opinion about all multiplayer achievements ever, so maybe that's just me.

If I still had the game I'd offer to do co-op with you because I enjoyed it so much, but unfortunately I sold it to Amazon after finishing. I do that with plenty of games, but I regret it with this one now. :|

I'm definitely down for co-op Pinata. I was going to bump the DR2 thread to find a booster, but I won't be able to start until next weekend (around the 11th-12th).

It's a blast so I have no problems running through it again. There are two co-op specific achievements, but there is also the Big Spender (spend $6 million) one which sounds like works better in co-op as well since you can share magazines from each others respective games.

Finished RDR: Undead Nightmare. Now planning to play through Uncharted 2, but want to run through the original game quickly again first. That way, I'm all prepped for when the 3rd one hits.

Also, my backlog continues to take a hit as even though I finished up Read Dead, I also bought Demon's Souls and Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood. What's wrong with me?

So outside of the usual CoD zombies, it looks like I've played nothing but Dead Rising 2, Case Zero and Case West for the past two months and still have 3 achievements left go grab. Still waiting on pinata for those.


It really doesn't take that long if you're using a guide to the individual goals such as posters or novelty weapons. The only painful one is the 72,000 kills, which take an entire playthrough of doing nothing but driving back and forth in a loop.

Fuck that was brutal. Boring as shit, but not near as annoying as the Terror is Reality(online) ones.

I did pop in Kinect Adventures to do a little achievement hunting. For the most part they are pretty easy, but it's a workout playing for two hours straight. :lol:

I started Majin & the Forsaken Kingdom the other day. It's a great little game once you get past the horrendous voice acting.

I'm close to "prestige" for a second time in Zuma Blitz. Fuck I can't quit playing this game. :sad:


Gears of war 2 (xbox 360) completed 9/13
Grade: A + ; Another awesome game! It took me while to look past the over muscular macho man characters but once i did, had a great time. Gameplay is mixed up enough where you're not always ducking for cover and shooting ugly ass aliens. The vehicles were all fun to control much better than Halos vehicles.
Graphics were beautiful looking but at times felt a little dull.

Really? I barely even recall the vehicles in Gears 2. :lol: That says something right there. I remember riding in the gunner seat of something, but not driving. I love Halo's vehicles and have yet to see a shooter that matched them.

Saw you finished Splosion Man (awesome game) and Feeding Frenzy 2. I actually like FF2. I play it with my kids though, so that has something to do with it.

I've recently been playing games a lot more and have actually finished three in the last month.

September - Resistance 2 - I missed having the full weapon wheel from the first game.
October - Space Marine: Warhammer 40,000 - Loved this game. It felt like the perfect balance of exaggeration, slightly-skillful button mashing, and pure fun. I could actually see myself playing it again.
Singularity - Liked it at times, and at other times found it really tedious (stupid ticks). It definitely feels a little past its expiration point, but it was worthwhile for a cheap price. I liked the "Ping" feature that showed you where to go if you got tired of wandering around. Seemed like a good way to keep the player from getting too frustrated with that aspect of the game.
Bulletstorm - I enjoyed the gameplay of this, but the dialogue/ language was just irritating from start to finish. The graphics of the outdoor backdrops were detailed and gorgeous, and the indoor/ corridor stuff never felt too repetitive or drab. The overall level design seemed really polished to me.
November - Halo: Reach.

You should stick with it. I agree, the time between leaving on your horse and getting to the colossus isn't the best (although the scenery is pretty cool), but once you get to the colossus and have to figure out the best way to take it down is fucking awesome.

it seems like everytime a mw comes out I get back into videogames as I havent played anything around april when i played thru dead space 2 and red dead redemption (which i have to still finish once i remember who borrowed it)

picked up uncharted 2, infamous 2, and heavy rain for black friday but had a question I had uncharted 1and infamous 1 and played like 99% of the game before my original ps3 crapped out is it worth getting the originals again to replay them again before moving on?

Dead Rising: Case Zero (200/200)

Still the only thing I made it through this year. :lol:

Bought Arkham (the first one) and it's still wrapped. But finally picked up COD:MW2 again last month when my boy got interested in the Spec Ops co-op mode (earned our first 3 stars on a mission this morning), and I've got MW3 and NCAA12 under the tree for him, so hopefully 2012 will afford me more time to enjoy some gaming.

Gosh, I haven't gotten too many new games this year with the new baby.

The only one I can remember finishing is Fallout New Vegas. I guess you can say I finished it, the credits rolled, but I didn't do every one of the side quests.

I put a whole lot of time into Black Ops MP, but I only played around 30 minutes of the campaign.

I understand getting a platinum without 100%, but what can you 100% without a platinum? Only thing I can think of is higher difficulty or MP trophies. And if that's the case, can it really be "100%"? Seems like you're being generous with yourself ;)

Wrapped up God Of War: Chains Of Olympus (PS3) last night in one sitting. Wasn't expecting that...but it was a fun five hour romp.

PSN games, etc. which don't have platinum trophies.

Hmmm. I don't play much psn, but I could have sworn I got a platinum from this one I reviewed. I did not realize platinums weren't a guarantee. I thought the point was to reward trophy completion. Weird.

Some PSN games have platinums, like Dead Nation. But most don't. They usually have around 12 trophies.

Then there's Truth Or Lies, which is actually a retail game that only has 13 trophies and no plat while the XBOX version has a full set of achievements. I don't know of any other game like that, but I'm sure there are others.

Then there's Back To The Future, which was released on PSN in 5 separate episodes, each with their own trophies. The game was later released on disc as a single title, with a different trophy list, including a platinum. It may be the only game available with and without a platinum.

That's really strange, I had no idea. I honestly thought the whole point of the platinum was to give a quick number of "completed" games via trophies. It seems like the sort of thing Sony should have enforced, or just made automatic through simple math.

The rules that Sony has in place limits the number of trophies, more specifically the number of trophy points, that can be earned from each game. Sony has two levels, small games, and full games.

The small PSN games max out at 315 points (bronze are 15 each, Silver is 30, Gold is 90, Platinum is 180). Retail games max out at 1230, unless they have DLC. With DLC, I don't think there's a minimum, but they might be limited to the 315 max that small games are per DLC.

The idea is that only full games are worthy of a platinum. So yeah, while having plats on everything would make it easier to keep count of how many games you've completed, it would kind of cheapen the platinum. I mean I only put 2 or 3 hours total into Altered Beast vs. the 40+ hours I put into L.A. Noire.

Finished Gunstringer the other day. Very fun game. Just hunting down some achievements now. I thought I was close to the end of Rayman Origins, but the overworld map just doubled. :lol:

I usually play games halfway through, get bored, and move onto something else. Looking at my shelf, the only thing I can honestly say I finished was the single player on MW:3.

I'll try harder in 2012.
