Back to Our Regularly Scheduled Pile

Pages

Welcome to March! We've got a big game release, some college basketball, Spring Break! and a host of other things that are going to attempt to divert our attention. Stay strong!

If you're interested, m0nk3yboy, has the 12 month pile plan thread over here.

A quick reminder, in order to be considered "Pile of Shame" the game needs to be at least three months old. Otherwise, it's just a new game you haven't gotten to playing yet.

Also, if you are curious about some of the previous threads, Pick's of the Pile, etc... Please go here and check out the Google doc I setup.

Let's get on to the games!

This month's Pick of the Pile is

"Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood is the direct sequel of 2009's Assassin's Creed II, picking up right after the conclusion of the previous game.

The story once again features Ezio Auditore da Firenze, now a legendary Master Assassin, as he strives to rebuild the Assassin Brotherhood in Rome, by bringing down the tyrannical Templar family, the Borgia, and bringing the city into the true wealth and wonder of the Renaissance." (wikia.com)

I'll try to knock out Alan Wake. Maybe something else will grab my attention. Red Faction sort of fell off the face of the earth in exactly the same place on both PC and 360 for me.

Deus Ex (PC) will be finished this month, and then on to something short or Saint's Row The Third (PC) depending on how long it takes to finish Deus Ex.

I'm currently working on Rage (PC), it will definitely be done soon.
I'm also dallying with Might and Magic: Heroes 6, but that seems like a really long game and I don't know if I'll even finish it, so no pile for me for that one.

Though only half part of the pile, I'll finish my Mass Effect 2 (PC) playthrough in early March, followed by a non-pile game. Hopefully, I'll get to a pile game in late March.

I'm going to finish up Sam & Max 205: What's New, Beelzebub? in the next couple of days. That will finish up Season 2, and I'll probably wait until April to start Season 3. I'm also going to finish Alan Wake. I took a break from it for a couple months, but hopefully I'll remember roughly what happened already without restarting it.

Brutal Legend - XBox 360

Mass Effect 1 & 2. I'm nearly done w/ 1 and I plan on barreling right on through to 2. Both PC

Grand Theft Auto: Episodes From Liberty City, one mission at a time.

Going to hit up portal 2 this month. Losing 10 days to vacation, but I can play this in front of my kids so I should be able to get it done.

Let's call it Persona 3 and Metroid Fusion.

World of Goo and perhaps Stalker 1

Ratchet and Clank - All 4 One.

Seriously, I will finish my projected game this month.

Don't buy it looking for an actual R&C game. It's a co-op game and the gameplay is quite different for it.

Mass Effect 2 (360) for me, even if it's just the story with no side quests, I'm going to get through it this month.

Skyrim!

Aw, who am I kidding, I'll probably still be playing in April.

Ico for PS3.

If I can't manage an 8-hour game that I've already played half of, then I should just give up now

Trying to knock out Lara Croft & GoL and Rock of Ages before ME3 drops next week. Both on XBLA.

List should be current.

Technically, Alan Wake is now Multi-platform. Persona 3 might count as well. I think it came out on PSP.

Okay, Bastion on 360 is falling this month, for sure. Didn't have much luck last month.

Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood on 360 for me!

Final Fantasy XIII is still my focus.

Actually, let's add Rayman Origins to the list too. I'm already 60% through, I should be able to finish it off.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution, and Catherine (both on 360) for me.

I should be able to do these I between SSX sessions. Damn that game is good, and I haven't even touched the single player yet.

Sticking to my master plan, I'm going to try to do Shadows Of the Damned start to finish; and either beat, give up on, or take a big chunk out of Rogue Galaxy.

Master, there is an 85% chance you don't have much more to go based on the last time you mentioned your progress. Good luck!

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. It will fall this month, or the Wii will dying trying. I'm 40hrs in.

No other games will be declared or started until it is done. I do have 2 other ongoing distractions. The first is Picross on the DS, which is less a disctraction and more of a before I fall asleep in bed thing. The other is the beta for Firefall. I'm in it. That's all I can say.

You know, I tend to overlook Fi's few interruptions to my quest, but having someone else say it gets me. I really haven't felt like she's been popping up very often for me. Only like 3-4 times for each dungeon and exploration portion put together, including the end of dungeon and visit to the sky.

The only thing I've gotten annoyed at is the controller battery one as the batteries were 'low' for about 6 hrs, so she fussed at me 3 or 4 times when loading the game.

Sorry, couldn't resist editing that in
