Re: Definitive 2014 Finished/Unfinished Report Card Thread

Finished in January:
* The Wolf Among Us: Episode 1 (360) | Telltale jank not withstanding, pretty good so far! | Grade: A-

Finished in February:
* The Wolf Among Us: Episode 2 (360) | Not as strong as the first episode, but overall this is a fun series. | Grade: A-
* Lego Marvel Super Heroes (XBO) | This is the game you give your kids to keep them busy for 6 months. | Grade: B

Finished in March:
* South Park: The Stick of Truth (360) | Better than I could have possibly imagined. | Grade: A+
* DmC (PS3) | Conceptually interesting, visually repugnant. | Grade: C+

Finished in April:
* Titanfall (XBO) | Finished the "campaign" and didn't feel like playing any more. I'm just not a hardcore multiplayer guy. Still, the game is fine. | Grade: B+
* Peggle 2 (XBO) | PEGGLE 2! | Grade: A-
* The Walking Dead Season 2: Episode 2 (360) | Still great, with a surprising gut punch right in the middle of the episode. | Grade: A
* God of War HD (PS3) | Everything you hate in videogames: Monster closets, QTEs, timed jumping puzzles, balance beam walking with a constantly shifting camera... and yet because it did most of this stuff first it gets a pass. Holds up well. Playable at least. | Grade: B+
* Back to the Future: Episode 1 (PS3) | Janky fan fiction, but enjoyable so far. | Grade: B

Finished in May:
* Dead Nation: Apocalypse Edition (PS4) | My kind of game, plus free. | Grade: B+
* Remember Me (PS3) | One great mechanic that you barely ever get to do. Story is junk. Pretty though. | Grade: C+
* The Walking Dead Season 2: Episode 3 (360) | Getting even better as it progresses. | Grade: A

Finished in June:
* Wolfenstein: The New Order (PS4) | My only real complaint is that the story has issues with transitions from chapter to chapter. Other than that? Very satisfying. | Grade: B+
* Murdered: Soul Suspect (PS4) | A fine B-tier game. Not a lot of challenge, but an entertaining, interactive adventure. | Grade: B

Finished in July:
* Super Mario 3D Land (3DS) | Well, I finished the first go around. There's a New Game Plus mode that I don't have time to tackle. | Grade: A-
* Catherine (360) | Enjoyable story, but a chore to actually play. | Grade: B-

Finished in August:
* Rage (360) | Mildly enjoyable, mostly lackluster. | Grade: B-
* The Walking Dead Season 2: Episode 4 (360) | Still great. | Grade: A
* The Walking Dead Season 2: Episode 5 (360) | Not as strong as the Season One finale, but then again how could it be? | Grade: B+

Finished in October:
* Battlefield 4 (XBO) | Single player campaign sucks. Glitchy nonsense. | Grade: C

Finished in November:
* Forza Horizon 2 (XBO) | More Forza Horizon is never a bad thing. | Grade: A-
* Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare (PS4) | Spacey is great, story goes off the rails halfway through, still a lot of fun. | Grade: B+

Finished in December:
* Never Alone (XBO) | A gorgeous, informative, fascinating puzzle/platformer. | Grade: A-
* Game of Thrones: Episode 1 (XBO) | The Telltale jank is gone! | Grade: A-
* Assassin's Creed (360) | Decent game, bullshit ending. I hope they get another chance to make this idea work. | Grade: B
* Assassin's Creed II (360) | They added a bunch of stuff! The world seems alive now. | Grade: A-
