Definitive 2012 Finished/Unfinished Report Card Thread

We've got one year left of gaming before the end of the world. Finish as many games as you can!

Finished in January:
* Dragon Age: Origins (360) | Simply amazing storytelling. I wish I'd played this one sooner. Grade: A+
* Call of Duty: Black Ops (360) | Surprisingly unique single-player mode... for a CoD game. More of this please. Grade: A-
* Dragon Age Origins: Awakening (360) | Not as polished as the main game, but still a solid 20 hour expansion pack. Grade: A-

Finished in February:
* Syndicate (360) | Solid first person shooter, short on story. Guns feel great, and you feel right at home playing through it. Not as robust as Deus Ex though. Grade: B
* Red Faction Guerrilla (360) | I could only play this in hour long chunks. Not much story, which makes most of the game feel repetitive and lackluster. Still, I love smashing buildings and watching them fall onto EDF troops. Grade: B-

Finished in March:
* Mass Effect 2 (360) | Second playthrough, this time with all the DLC. Still one of my favorite games this generation. Grade: A+
* Mass Effect 3 (360) | Technical bugs and a totally disappointing final scene hurt what is otherwise still a terrific game. Grade: A-
* F.E.A.R. (360) | Holds up surprisingly well, with some great atmosphere and some legitimate creepy moments. Story is nonsense though. Grade: B+

Finished in April:
* F.E.A.R. Files (360) | Two non-canon expansion packs. The first is better than the original game, the second is sadly more of a shooter than a creepfest. Still, great stuff. Grade: B+
* The Walking Dead: Episode 1 (360) | Impressive as hell, great look and atmosphere, nicely done all around. I hope the next 4 chapters can live up to this. Grade: A

Finished in May:
* Pac-Man: Championship Edition (XBLA) | Just needed one more achievement to reach 200/200, finally got it. Great update to the original Pac-Man. Grade: A
* Pac-Man Championship Edition DX (XBLA) | Same situation as Pac-Man: CE. Only knock against this game is that the previous one was just a little better. Grade: A-
* Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock (360) | Strip away all the stupid bullshit about Rock being an ancient force and a giant Gene Simmons battling a robot, and there's a surprisingly deep rhythm game with tons more features than Rock Band 3. Only 40% of the soundtrack is any good though. Thanks for killing the genre guys. Grade: C+

Finished in June:
* EA Sports MMA (360) | Completed the story mode twice and got all the offline achievements (online play is no longer possible). Technically sound, but still long loads times and a sport I don't care about. Grade: C+
* Madden 06 (360) | Achievement point whoring! Completed 1000/1000 Gamerscore while watching E3 coverage.
* Major League Baseball 2K6 (360) | Achievement point whoring! Completed 1000/1000 Gamerscore while watching E3 coverage.
* Madden 09 (360) | Achievement point whoring! Completed 1000/1000 Gamerscore while watching E3 coverage.
* Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 (360) | Super condensed version of the movie. Play the scenes that could easily be a video game, watch the rest. Grade: B-
* Homefront (360) | So it's Red Dawn, from the writer of Red Dawn, done so damn poorly. The story is more epic than anything you end up doing, and you never feel like you're part of the bigger picture. Disappointing. Grade: C-
* Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters (360) | Surprisingly not bad, and actually better than the feature film. Action/beat 'em up with Ryan Reynolds actually providing the voice for his character. Grade: B+
* Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood (360) | Prequel to the first game and superior in every way. Worth a playthrough, even worth two playthroughs (one as each main character). Grade: B+
* Madden 08 (360) | Achievement point whoring! 1000/1000
* Fight Night Champion (360) | Easily the greatest story mode ever in a sports game. The overall game has some serious technical flaws though. Story Mode Grade: A- / Overall Grade: C+
* Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut (360) | Why couldn't you have done this the first time around, Bioware? Game still has some jank but the ending is much improved. Grade: A
* The Walking Dead: Episode 2 (XBLA) | Still some of the best storytelling of this generation with some amazingly difficult moral choices, but technically this episode needed a little longer to cook. Grade: A-

Finished in July:
* NCAA Football 08 (360) | Achievement point whoring! 1000/1000
* NCAA Football 07 (360) | Achievement point whoring! 1000/1000
* NHL 2K6 (360) | Achievement point whoring! 1000/1000
* Front Mission Evolved (360) | Donít ask me what this game is about other than giant mechs and space elevators. You get to shoot stuff. Someone in the game might be your Dad, and he might be a good guy or a bad guy. Grade: B-

Finished in August:
* The Walking Dead: Episode 3 (XBLA) | Holy. Crap. Grade: A

Finished in October:
* The Walking Dead: Episode 4 (XBLA) | Holy. Crap. Again. Grade: A
* Quantum of Solace (360) | Treyarch's James Bond game takes some interesting liberties with the first two Daniel Craig movies, still manages to be a lot of fun. Grade: B+

Finished in November:
* Medal of Honor: Warfighter (360) | There are some really great driving sequences in this. Unfortunately the game is not called Wardriver. Everything about it is just mostly okay. The story makes little sense and focuses on the wrong things. Grade: B-
* Forza Horizon (360) | Challenging yet relaxing, colorful, fun racing title with atmosphere galore. Really solid game. Grade: A
* WWE '13 (360) | Best story mode in a wrestling game ever, one I hope continues and thrives as the standard for WWE games. Grade: B+
* Need for Speed Most Wanted (360) | The 2012 version of Most Wanted is Burnout Paradise with cops. Needed more personality and character in the single player mode. Grade: B+
* Call of Duty Black Ops II (360) | Not as engaging as the original BLOPS and takes some weird turns as far as who you play as in certain segments. The last 3rd of the game is amazing though before it kinda all falls apart at the very end. Grade: B+
* The Walking Dead: Episode 5 (360) | Game of the Year. No question. Maybe even my favorite of this entire generation of games. Grade: A+
* Asura's Wrath (360) | Interactive anime quick time event beat 'em up weirdness. Loved it, despite the bullshit ending. Grade: A-

Finished in December:
* Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Future Soldier (360) | Surprisingly good third person tactical squad shooter, which isn't normally my thing. Grade: B+
* Dragon's Lair (360) | Might as well play this on every game system ever. It's Dragon's Lair in HD. Overall package is lackluster. Grade: B-
* 007: Blood Stone (360) | Whoever the person was at EON Productions who said "No more gun barrel sequence and never play the Bond theme ever!" is a dick. Driving sequences are conceptually good, but hard as hell to pull off. Grade: B-
* Spec Ops: The Line (360) | The best shooter I've played since the first BLOPS. Great storyline and location. Grade: A-
* Binary Domain (360) | It's a shame that SEGA threw this game out with little PR. Imagine Japan trying to make a western-style game blending The Terminator, Blade Runner and the Dreamcast. Yeah! Grade: B+
* DiRT Showdown (360) | The second best music festival racing game of the year. Grade: B
* TMNT (360) | Achievement point whoring. 1000/1000. Tedious. Grade: C
* College Hoops 2K6 (360) | Achievement point whoring. 1000/1000

Currently Playing:
* NeverDead
* Ridge Racer Unbounded
* Tropico 4

Abandoned:
* Call of Juarez (360) | The gameplay is woefully outdated, which is a shame because playing as both sides of the same story seemed interesting.
* Operation Darkness (360) | A Japanese turn-based, grid-based RPG about World War II with Final Fantasy-esque characters fighting Nazis, and then eventually vampires. Not as fun as that sounds.
* Castlevania: SOTN (XBLA) | Just not my kind of game anymore. Didn't feel like playing more than 10 minutes of it.
* Star Trek: Legacy (360) | It took 5 years, but finally I'm ready to say it. F*ck this f*cking game.
* Thor: God of Thunder (360) | Conceptually interesting, lackluster graphics, poor level design. Gave up during the finale, which is so badly realized that you can end up playing it completely wrong and prevent completion of the game.
* Madden 12 (360) | The NFL isnít doing it for me much anymore, and so I got the easy achievements (about 575/1000 in only a couple of games) and got out.
* The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (360) | Played for about 30 hours, hadn't played it in over a month, no desire to return. Got what I needed to get from it.
* Burnout Revenge (360) | Since the online servers were shutting down, we thought we'd play some multiplayer and get those achievements. Sometimes you can't go back. And I can't go forward in this game anymore. Hit the wall.
* Star Wars: The Force Unleashed (360) | With this game I realized just how "over" the Star Wars universe I am. Force powers are fun, but the blind jumping, poor checkpoints and insanely radical shifts in tone were just too damn annoying.
* Trials HD (XBLA) | Time to give this game two middle fingers and call it a day.
* Pac-Man (XBLA) | Yes, the classic arcade version. There's one achievement I'll never get, so that's that really.
* Game Room (XBLA) | You can still go there. Games are still $3. And to get any more achievements, I'd have to purchase more games. Not gonna happen. Great idea, horrible execution. Way to fuck up something potentially awesome, Microsoft.
* Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection (360) | One achievement left to go (950/1000) but it's one I'll probably never get. Nice compilation though, and a disc I'll be keeping in my collection.
* BCFX: Black College Football The Xperience (360) | Achievement point whoring! Completed 690/1000 Gamerscore while watching E3 coverage. Would have gotten the entire 1000, but the game really, REALLY sucks.
* Madden NFL 07 (360) | Achievement point whoring! Completed 945/1000 before declaring the rest of the achievements unattainable.
* Beijing 2008 (360) | Olympic games should be better than this by now. Deleted from my profile entirely.
* NCAA March Madness 07 (360) | Achievement point whoring! Completed 700/1000 before declaring the rest of the achievements unattainable.
* MLB Front Office Manager (360) | Started playing this for points, then the "What the hell am I doing?!" realization hit me.
* Eragon (360) | Started out as a mildly decent licensed game, grew extremely tedious as it went along.
* Sonic All Stars Racing Transformed (360) | Well done Mario Cart clone that's better suited for multiplayer matches.
* Street Fighter IV (360) | Took me about 7 minutes to realize that I do not like Street Fighter games. At all.
* Super Street Fighter IV (360) | And adding Super to the title doesn't help.
* NFL Head Coach 09 (360) | Achievement point whoring. I have a problem.

Re: Definitive 2012 Finished/Unfinished Report Card Thread

All my games are on the PS3

Finished 2012:
January
- Dante's Inferno: Interesting concept that was poorly executed (button mashing, GoW clone) with some nice graphics sprinkled throughout the game. (6.5/10)

March
- Fifa 12: Finished career mode as a player and manager and there's no way that I'm going to finish the Ultimate Team mode so that's it for me. I enjoyed this version of Fifa than the previous 2.

Currently playing:
Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars
Dead Island
NHL 12

Pile of Shame:
Too many to list...

If you go by the game manufacturers, sports games have an expiration date of 1 year.

Re: Definitive 2012 Finished/Unfinished Report Card Thread

Currently playing (and about to finish):

XBLA
Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes (done with first four campaigns (all main/side quests) and on the final campaign) (Awesome game, only negative part is the ample amount of grinding that you must do to stand a chance but at the same time to helps you with strategy)

Games that I will get to (not necessarily finish) in 2012:
Xbox 360
Skyrim
Saint's Row 3
Borderlands (GOTY)
Red Dead Redemption (GOTY)
Lego Star Wars III
Dark Souls

XBLA
Beyond Good and Evil HD


That's it for right now. I might be asking way too much of myself to do half a dozen retail games, but dang it I have to start playing some of the games I buy . (if you saw my pile of shame, you would understand)

Finished M&M: Clash of Heroes. Beat the game, got all of the achievements (Non-DLC) except for the Heroes achievement which is glitched I come to find out and two online ones. The "Heroes" achievement is the one you get for beating all of the main and side quests. I've done that. However, the glitch is that if you start the game from the trial version (which I did), it will then not allow you to get that crucial achievement. I would at this point have to start a brand new game and go from there. Course I read about this after I have put 30-40 hours and beat the game. So I'll stick at 9 out of 12. I give the game 8/10. Negatives being that glitchy achievement and this game thrives on grinding levels. But it really is a fun game elsewise.

I think I am going to start Skyrim next, we shall see.

LOL I am clearly goofing off if you are a typical playthrough.

I've done about 50 hours, nearly 500 saves (i'm actually wondering what happens when you hit 1000). I am a male wood elf, level 25 with focus on primarily sneaking, speech, lock picking, archery, one handers, and light armor (I did do heavy for the first 15-20 levels until I got the hand of combat). I also dabble in just about everything else with the exception of shields, two handers, and most magic (with the exception of restoration). I'm only 1/3rd through the storyline, joined thieves guild and the companions, tons of sides, tons of misc objectives, etc, etc, etc. I do fast travel a lot but its primarily because I have a limited amount of time to play. I am averaging about 10 hours a week playing it currently. So if I ever want to finish the game, I kinda have to.

Re: Definitive 2012 Finished/Unfinished Report Card Thread

March

Just completed Resident Evil 5. I don't think I've ever spent so much time on a game I've enjoyed less. I liked it up until about halfway, after which it suddenly just became frustrating and repetitive. However, for some reason I felt compelled to finish it. I have no idea why.

April

Finished Resistance 3 - much welcome change from Resident Evil 5. I really like having the weapon wheel in shooters as opposed to always deciding what two rifles to carry.

May

Finally got around to finishing Gears of War 3. I feel like there wasn't that much game play involved - a lot of walking from one place to the next followed by a cut scene, followed by a quick gun battle. Oh well. Still enjoyed it.



5/21 -Bioshock

July

7/17 - Batman: Arkham Asylum


August

8/18 - Bioshock 2
8/25 - Dead Space
8/27 - Dead Space (2nd playthrough)


September

9/2 - Dead Space 2 (switched to Casual around Chapter 9 or 10 to finish it)
9/3 - Dead Space 2 (2nd playthrough, this time on "New Game +" on Normal)

Re: Definitive 2012 Finished/Unfinished Report Card Thread

If I posted my pile of shame, people would cry and kittens would impale themselves on your front lawn...seriously.

Anyway...slight update. In March, finished Darkness II (44/50 achievos), beat the main story twice and beat the Vendettas campaign.

Currently playing Lucha Libre AAA: Heroes Del Ring on 360...not bad game just I don't see it holding my interest for longer than it takes to beat the story mode as both a rudo and a technico.

Then its back most likely to a steady diet of NBA 2k12 and Skyrim.
