What VIDEO GAME(s) have you been playing?
I'm playing TIS-100 right now and I CAN'T STOP, HELP ME SOMEONE. When I stopped yesterday it was 430am, HELPPPPP!!!
Then, I booted up SpaceChem, because I'm a glutton for punishment, and now I'M HOOKED ON BOTH OF THEM.
At least you have decisions to make in the Walking Dead series from Telltale games, and it never resorted to shooting in the face, rinse and repeat. True, those decisions may have been only deciding which NPCs got to stick around longer than others but at least it gave me some control over the story.

You probably just like that little gearbox robot guy, whatever his name is.
$10.00 says Ken has at least one MoH title still in the shrink wrap in his Unplayed Video Game Oubliette of Despair. Did he ever end up unwrapping RE4?
Same here. I got DESTINY for free from a friend and have no desire to fire that up. But I would play BORDERLANDS right now, no problem. For me, it's a combination of loot--God I love loot optimization--and the art direction--that cel-shaded look is amazing. The writing is also pretty good, and actually funny here and there. This might be the case in CoD and the others, too, I wouldn't know.
But for some reason I can't get enough of Borderlands.
/Burch.....Now I'm in the mood to go binge watch some "Hey Ash, Wacha Playin"
//my fav :
But yours is my new favorite one. They've become really good at the comic timing and the brother is amazing now.
And no, Ken has not cracked Re4 yet. If he had, he would obviously have apologized by now.
Jeb, the CoD games don't have humour at all, in fact quite the opposite. Gears of War has some great humour and it helps the experience a bunch. The redone first one is coming out soon with number four next year, holiday season.
Crazy shit is that I think we agree in a lot of respects. But I think you're way more on point with uncharted than last of us---your critique hits home better with that game. Last of us knows that its protagonist is complete psychopath and respects it. There's a wonderful moment, when the woman he's with is out the door, where she looks him in the eye and says "we are shitty people." Later there's a great beat where they defeat a roadblock by murdering ten people brutally and Ellie says "how did you know what would happen" and he's just like "I've been on both sides of that one" and she makes a comment about his chilling immorality.
And I still think the gameplay is better than you guys think, but I'm not like up to sing its praises or anything.
it starts off slow, the big payoff is at the end. The sequence at 0:31 is freaky cuz she looks exactly like Dom there. 1:19 is my favourite part and is why it was my favourite for so long.
We started off with Divekick. We ended up pretty even on wins. I played this online a decent amount when it came out, but it doesn't really hold up as a good competitive couch game.
Followed that up with Foiled . A free little two-player game that I never get to play. We played this for a while and loved it. It's highly competitive, frantic, and simple.
We played Ultra Street Fighter 4 for a bit but he hadn't played for several years, and my hiatus was a few years less than him, so I ended up dominating and we gave up on it.
Then I broke out Sportsfriends. Barabariball is a little like Smash Bros, but the attacks are deliberate, so you have to time them right and I wasn't doing so hot. The highlight for me was Super Pole Riders . Done by the guy who did QWOP , it took a little playtime to get the hang of the controls, but once you do, it's pretty great. A lot of back and forth and tense moments.
We didn't play JS Joust or Hokra because they require more players.
We finished out the night with a few hours of Rocket League. We played split screen on the same team against people online. He had never played before, so it took him a while to get the hang of it. We actually managed to win on our very last game of the night. Splitscreen is definitely a different experience since you see much less of the field. We weren't doing too bad with it though. He liked it a lot so hopefully he'll pick it up and then we can play individually with another friend for a complete 3-player team.
Not a bad way to spend 7 hours on a Friday night.
I've also been playing Diablo 3 on the console with my wife, but largely out of inertia. It's really a shit game, and I loved Diablo 2. There's just nothing to Diablo 3. There is nothing to care about in it. Not caring about the plot is a given -- nobody who isn't on Blizzard's payroll ever cared about Diablo plots -- but there's nothing to care about in the gameplay either. There isn't any reason to ever do anything other than brute force and armor, few of the enemies distinguish themselves from each other at all, and there's no "horizon"; there's never anything beyond where you are right now except more of where you are right now. I guess maybe I'm misremembering D2 as having more substance to it, because I'm hard pressed to name what that might have been, but D3 is just boring sameness. Any given twenty minutes of it is utterly indistinguishable from any other twenty minutes.
I guess right now I'm running out the clock on Fallout 4. I've been playing that dumb Fallout Shelter game on iOS and been making my own fun by naming dwellers things like "Donald Trump" and "Ayn Rand" and "Jenny McCarthy" and sending them out in the wasteland with no weapons, outfits, or medicine to die. I could resurrect Ayn Rand for 153 caps, but I only have 260,000 and I rightfully earned them and it would be an insult to her to give her that kind of charity if she can't afford to resurrect herself. And I guess Jenny McCarthy didn't know as much about medicine as she thought.
