Finished Any Games Lately?

Zero and I finished Halo 2 finally. I'm still working on finishing Gears on Insane.

If only there were a way to tally up the hours you spent in Halo 2 before completing the campaign.

It is certainly in the hundreds at this point. Maybe close to 500? But yeah, crazy stuff.

Oh, and honestly, I don't see why everyone was so upset about the cliffhanger at the end. Maybe it is just that I knew it was coming AND I only have to wait about a year to see what happens next, but I really wasn't that upset about how they left things.

Same here, though I was miffed that the game was so much shorter than Halo 1. Considering how long it took you to complete it, I'm thinking you don't care so much.

More on topic: I tore up Dead Rising and made pinatas get it on.

Heh, yeah. Honestly, I don't even really have a good idea of how long it was, because we started up from a save about halfway through the game that we had last played about six months ago. I guess it did feel a little bit shorter, but it felt like what was missing was the endless backtracking through the snow level through endless identical rooms, and the painfully long library stuff, so I really didn't mind all that much.

Coincidentally I made it to Two Betrayels (the second of the ice levels) this morning. It dawned on me last week that since I'd migrated to the 360, my console of choice has been thinking I'm someone that is okay with not having completed Halo. Can't have that; ain't good for moral.

Best level ever, and a good deal of it is not backtracking when you consider the differing objectives. Also the parts of the two levels that do overlap differ in that the first go through there are no Flood. Put together they are scientific exploration into the pros and cons of single versus dual allegiance enemies in a FPS. Aw sweet, sweet nectar!

Also I forgot that I beat Tomb Raider on the hardest difficulty, then again for the collectible doohickies, then again on time trial. All together that added up to less than ten hours. Too short, game, too short.

Yeah, you're pretty much right about that. However, if I never see that stupid octogonal room with the hallway around it again in my life, I will die a happy man.

I just got around to finishing Prey.

A fine game and definately worth the $20 its going for on steam right now.

Put another notch in the bedpost, I just finished up Dark Messiah of Might and Magic. So many great moments in there, it was like a bunch of pearls floating in scum water. Fewer bugs and better level design in some areas would have strung them together very nicely, I think.

Still, worth playing if you can buy it cheap and patch it up.

I just finished it over the weekend. It's definitely not what I was expecting. Based on trailers and pics, I was thinking an Oblivion-ish RPG. Nope, it's a linear action game with a few RPG tropes tossed in. I was a little disappointed at how sub-optimal cross-classing turns out. There's a max number of skill points you can possibly get and it's not enough to spread them out among the three classes while still getting the powerful skills and item pre-reqs. And while they weren't required to win, they just would have been nice to have. I spent the whole game carrying around items I was never able to use.

Still, it was a fairly fun game.

I'm happy to report that I've recently completed the GRAW tutorial.

... and finished Gears of War co-op on hardcore with jonnypolite.

I'm so close to the end of GoW on Hardcore it hurts. I got to the last bit inside the mansion solo, but can't get past it. I keep meaning to harangue someone into co-oping it with me, but I've been distracted by other things.

And it would mean accepting my innate crapness at videogames. 25 years of gaming, still rubbish. Arse.

Finished Twilight Princess on the Wii, Gears of War Co-op (casual) and thats about it.

Don't feel bad on that one. The game is pretty much made expecting you to have a partner. AI Dom is a less lucky version of Rambo.

I had an easier time on Raam on hardcore than casual playing solo. Insane is an entirely different beast altogether.

I've been working on Elite Beat Agents. You can't exactly beat it, but I'm on the last two songs on the 3 star level, and Jumpin Jack Flash hurts my very soul.

Finished up the Call of Duty 3 campaign the other day. There were some great set-pieces in there but the action gets a little repetitive toward the end. I keep wanting that game to be Brother in Arms and it's just not.

Still wanting to finish the Gears of War campaign. Any Hardcore co-op takers? I might be on for awhile this weekend. Send me a PM on Xbox Live.

Ya, playing adversarial Gears has made me want to hit up coop again. I could settle for Hardcore.

Your description of CoD3 makes me think of Big Red One. Awesome game, but jeez, enough with the trench warfare already.

Soloed Raam on insane tonight. Debating a 4th play for the COG tags.

I'm supposed to be finishing old games I own but haven't completed, so I'm working my way through Doom3. I bought it because although I'm not much of an FPS fan, I loved Doom1/2 and Q1/3/4.

It's not much good, is it? I'm looking forward to it being finished. There's not much pleasure in it, but it's a matter of principle now.

I think I dropped Doom III at about 80% completion. It got so repetitive, I just didn't care anymore. Mad props if you manage to put a stamp on that sucker!

Oh, I just put in the old id codes for noclip and godmode and blasted through the last few levels. It sucks. The final fight is kind of cool, tho.

I finally suffered through the ending of Superman: Returns. Game could've been sooo good, but man did they f*cked up. Flying was fun, everything else is painfully repetitive. Thank God I never bought it (gift)... next up... Viva Piñata, R6 Vegas, and maybe GoW on Insane.

Damn, I must be the weird girl here, I loved Doom 3.

Been playing through Hexen and Hexen 2 the last little while. Heretic and Heretic 2 never did anything for me, but the pseudo-RPG-ishness of Hexen and H2 are fun.

The Quake 1 engine really was.. primitive, wasn't it?

Ah, but the physicky grenades made it all okay.

Lost Planet is in the can. I'm sure glad I rented it!

Five week since I started the thread, seven games finished. Mind you, Oblivion was near-finished anyways. Hee!

Gears of War
Rainbow Six: Vegas
Zelda: The Twilight Princess
Oblivion
Neverwinter Nights 2
Dark Messiah of Might & Magic
Lost Planet

I've been absorbed by Viva Pinata, but finally got all the pinatas, if that counts as "winning"

Likewise, I bought all the thingies in Meteos, if that counts as a win.

Oh, Lego Star Wars II! Kat and I finished that the other night. She's presently hogging the TV and continuing to get all kinds of extras.

I recently finished Mega-Monkey mode in The Curse of Monkey Island. Sweet sweet sweet, I savored every minute of it. Also, I cannot thank enough to the guys behind SCUMMVM. On a similar note, I just finished second episode of Sam & Max. The TV shows were delicious. To continue in my current adventure mood, there is (finally!) Grim Fandango on the menu. Also, I plan to play through Fahrenheit/Indigo Prophecy once my frustration levels from the stupid "Simon" sequences drop. The storytelling is quite immersive, but the action sequences drive me mad.

Halo. That'd be somewhere around the dozenth time, now. Managed to see three things I'd never seen before.

We rented Prey - gross but interesting. Talk about a cheap hangnail for a sequel there at the end.

Finished Avatar: The Last Airbender on the Wii. Why? Don't ask. It was actually pretty okay for a licensed knockoff.

Finally finished FFXII. Then the kids made me finish FFX again (just that last bit from the last savepoint) so they could compare and contrast the CGI.

Only think I have hanging around the house right now I haven't finished is Full Metal Alchemist: Broken Angel which is a PSOne game that is probably never going to get finished unless my daughters go on another kick.

What the crap, you're a girl? I've seen your posts for almost 5 years and I didn't know that?

Anyway, I finished Beyond Good and Evil, it's a great game. Tip for the end boss: Hit him 10 times in a ROW to beat him, don't let him hit you, and dodge him when he goes above you. Otherwise you're gonna hate the game.

I tried Prey today, and I don't like it at all.
