    Borderlands GOTY Edition (PS3)

    Having beaten this and all of its DLC, I can say for a fact that Borderlands 1 is hard to sit through for the main "story". I say that because it's pretty non-existent, with most of the quests leading you here and there, in an attempt to get to the Vault and unlock it. There are a few things here and there in terms of story, for the most part it's missing, with very few commentary by anybody on the Echo.

    The beginning is pretty long as well, with most of the quests taking place on the same map until it sends you elsewhere, which by that point you will most likely be at least level 18, meaning half of what you would be when you beat the game usually. It gets a little fun after that, with the pace picking up and you entering maps and rarely returning to the old ones.

    Once you hit the DLC (with the exception of Mad Moxxi's Underdome, which hurts so bad that I will avoid speaking of it), it gets fun and starts to feel like the series we know and love. In The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned, you start seeing the humor you expect from the series along with a short story dealing with, of course, zombies. This DLC is about 4 hours at the most, so while not long, it does give that pleasing flavor the main quest of the game is missing.

    In The Secret Armory of General Knoxx, you get that epic storyline the main game was missing complete with humor, though the lack of having Fast Travel between the various areas of this DLC shows due to having to drive between maps constantly. The constant backtracking helped get this DLC stretched out to about 8 hours.

    Finally, Claptrap's New Robot Revolution is what we truly expect from the series. Humor everywhere, a good story, and quite a lot of epic battles (the last one being the best in the entire game, all DLC included). This one was also short, and once again I clocked a completion at about 4 hours.

    Overall, I'd say the game suffers horribly due to the story not being here, but the DLC helps salvage it overall, at least in my book. However, I will not be replaying this, unless a remake comes along that fixes most of the problems with this game.

    Space Quest III: The Pirates of Pestulon (PC)

    A big step down from SQ2. It's cool that Sierra went for a non-linear world design like Leisure Suit Larry but the puzzles are too easy (besides a few at the very beginning of the game, weirdly) and there's barely enough plot to tie them together. Plus the mini-games are back with a vengeance, and they're almost as bad as they were in SQ1. Maybe the engine improvements and cutscene were enough to make this game seem impressive back in 1989, but I don't see a whole lot worth praising now.

    EDIT: Having had a bit more time to think about this game, I was probably being a bit too hard on it. The front-ended difficulty put me on it's bad side, but it does have some good points. There are a few fun characters, and the high(er) res art really brings that out. I think the parser may have also received a few upgrades, or the designers wrote better feedback, because I spent less time playing "guess the verb" in this one. But yeah, still a weaker game than SQ2 overall.

    Finished New Super Mario Bros U (Wii U).

    Overall I found the game somewhat unremarkable. It was an okay Mario platformer that served reasonably well as a rental to kill some time. For every level that was fun, it seemed like there were 1 or 2 completely forgettable ones as well. Not bad by any means, but not that great either.

    MGSV stuff

    Agreed! Though i must admit part of me is tickled by a game called The Phantom Pain feeling like its missing something.

    'I can still feel my Episode 51... and my Camp Omega return... It's like they're all still there!'

    Yeah its kinda funny, but thats a pretty cheap excuse to basically cut the chronological ending. In some ways the more I think about MGS5, the less I like it. Playing through 90% of it was amazing, but the ultimate pay out just wasn't there at the end. Kojima really is a genius to be able to justify a game with missing pieces by pointing to the overall theme. Feels like no one else on earth would get away this :P. Even Ground Zeroes should have been included in the overall package.

    Hyperdimension Neptunia Re:Birth 1: PS Vita

    Got this on the flash sale a little back and spent sometime playing it. Mostly enjoyed it. Loved the way it was touched up and may a bit more bearable then the first. Can't wait to attempt the second one

    Until Dawn (PS4) - Loved this game just for the sheer amount of choices you had. I think getting a "perfect" playthrough on your first time without a guide should be a serious award.

    Heroine's Quest: The Herald of Ragnarok (PC)

    It's meant as an homage to Sierra's Quest for Glory series, yet manages to be better than most of those games combined.

    Kirby's Dream Course: SNES. You know what, this game was actually awesome. I passed it off for so many years as a stupid "golf" Kirby but I had some time to kill in class so I started it and after learning the mechanics in the first 10 minutes I found I couldn't put it down.

    Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag + Freedom's Cry DLC (PS3) --- Platinum Trophy

    I finally went back and completed my 2013 playthrough and got all of the trophies. I also got most of the online DLC trophies, though one still alludes me. I also replayed Freedom Cry, but this time as the add-on version instead. So, yay, I got to double up on some trophies. This is my 11th Platinum Trophy, so I'm quite happy. That said, the last trophy was bogus. You would think the Lv 55 in multiplayer would be the worst trophy. NOPE. The worse was the "share discoveries" trophy. Seems that my old 2013 profile data was glitched. So, this morning, I deleted it and started the game up again to forcefully reboot the profile. This fixed the glitch and allowed me to properly discovery white wales, royal convoys, and social chests. So, I just spent all morning sailing, trying to find them. I ultimately used a YT channel that had all social chests locations and finally found one in Kingston. Hurray.

    Finished Far Cry 4 (PS3) yesterday. I didn't enjoy it as much as Far Cry 3, but it had a pretty good story and Troy Baker was really great as Pagan Min. I did have fun hunting down all the masks of Yalung, even though there's not really a great incentive in doing so. I didn't really care for the Shangri-La portions - they were a bit too drawn out for my liking, but the main Golden Path story was interesting, especially choosing a side (I went with Amita)

    then you gotta at least do the Holy Sword ending, since it's not in the PS3 games. They added it to Re;Birth2 because there was a lot of funk over the Conquest ending.

    Maybe later playthrough had to delete the game to make room my the memory card sadly. Ionly have 2 8 gigs card. One I bought for the Vita the other one came with the PS TV

    Technobabylon (PC)

    Out of all the Wadjet Eye games I've played this one has the best story and voice acting, but it's also one of the easiest and most linear. Does that matter? I guess that depends on the player, but usually look at it this way: if I'm only playing a game for the story, then does it really make sense to spend 10 hours on it when I could spend the same amount of time on one of the recent TV series I haven't watched yet, which will almost certainly have better writing and acting? Not really, and unlike in Telltale's recent games the few instances of player choice don't add enough to the experience to compensate. Still, I can't say I didn't enjoy my time with it.

    Shadowrun Returns (PC) Had a good time with this one. Combat was right up my alley, story was decent and the setting is very interesting. Will probably continue on with the other two later, but this was fun.

    Amnesia: Memories (PC) -- After many bad endings, I FINALLY got the good ending on Ikki's route. This game is so much harder to anticipate how paths are going to go compared to other visual novel titles I played, which makes it both interesting and frusrating at the same time. Not sure whose route I'll go for next -- maybe Diamond Boy? We shall see.
  • Alex FullerAlex Fuller Managing Editor RPGamer Staff
    I got out my visual novel device (aka the cheapish Windows 8 tablet) again and ending up going through the rest of my Cho Dengeki Stryker (PC) playthrough. It managed to get pretty interesting in the end but took a while to get there (why I stopped in the first place). Unlocked a few more routes but will probably leave it there as didn't really do enough to warrant further investigation and the standard route ending wrapped things up well enough. Deciding which one I want to play next as I've got a couple in the backlog, though will probably load up To Be or Not To Be for the rest of this evening. Because.

    Assassin's Creed III (PC)

    Not even remotely as good as AC2, and buggy as hell, but it was decent enough once the game opened up. I've heard good things about Black Flag so I'll probably give that a go at some point in the future.
