Right now I'm playing Dragon Quest IX, and actually enjoying it. I used to despise RPG's, turn based ones especially, but I have to admit it has grown on me.

Sonic Colors got leaked.

It's...good?
The story's really weird in that it's trying pretty hard to be funny. Like, Paper Mario/Mario and Luigi funny. Eggman built some amusement park to atone for his crimes, and Sonic and Tails break in "because that's how we spend most of our time". There's lots of weird self-aware humor, or just weird humor in general (Sonic runs by Tails, stops, then moonwalks back over to Tails. What. Also Eggman's dialog over the PA system in the levels is actually pretty funny too.) It's not as good at the Mario RPGs in terms of humor, but it's a different take.

Supposedly they hired two dudes from Happy Tree Friends to help with the writing, which is weird too.

The game itself is pretty fun. Levels still have some trial and error, but less than usual, and you're JUST running this time. Finally. I mean, for fuck's sake, it took THIS LONG?!

Oh, and the music is really great. And the graphics actually give Mario Galaxy a run for its money.

It's a surprisingly solid game that's actually fun. Not a classic, but this is the only good Sonic game since Advance 1. I'd give it a B so far.

I've started playing Enslaved again and it's amazing. I honestly have no idea why games can't all have fantastic graphics, a great plot, or great acting like this one.

@Phoenix, I can't wait to play Sonic Colors. It actually sounds like Sonic, even Sonic Adventure 1 wasn't a true Sonic game.

Dimnos Nov 9th, 2010 11:06 AM

I thought you said Enslaved was mediocre? :?

Phoenix Gamma Nov 9th, 2010 02:38 PM

Beat Sonic Colors. The second half of the game isn't as fantastic as the first half, but it's still pretty strong and worth buying if you ever wanted to see a good Sonic game. Has some solid replay value.

Games Radar's review sums up the game perfectly:

So I take it this game is worth picking up? I read a review and I now i'm tempted to get it but no one I know has played it yet.

DougClayton4231 Nov 9th, 2010 03:44 PM

I love Enslaved, I just said that it wasn't as good as an investment as Castlevania for the same price. Enslaved is like 20$ now on Amazon, it's worth a buy.

Black Ops is so far so good. The "one in the chamber" mode is fun.

OxBlood Nov 9th, 2010 05:29 PM

Took the time to play through Resident Evil 1 again, this time on the DS. But I´m pretty sure this was the first time, Barry died on my...I wonder what I did wrong...there was no selfdestruction timer either...strange.

10,000 Volt Ghost Nov 9th, 2010 05:37 PM

It's because you didn't use the Barry Sandwich.

OxBlood Nov 9th, 2010 05:55 PM

I didn´t even OPEN that DOOR!

WhiteRat Nov 9th, 2010 06:05 PM

Bought an Xbox (3rd times the charm!) and have been playing the hell out of New Vegas, Forza 3, and NCAA Football 11.

I reserved Call of Duty but i'm such a badass i'm not even going to pick it up!

ps i'm broke

DougClayton4231 Nov 9th, 2010 06:11 PM

I've never played through the PS1 version of RE, only RE2 and RE3.

I can't wait to play the new DK :P

MarioRPG Nov 9th, 2010 07:44 PM

I've been playing the Ace Attorney games and holy crap am I ever impressed. I'm thoroughly enjoying it so far, the writing is amusing / funny and engaging. Kind of reminded me what I wanted to go into law for. Yelling and junk.
Characters are excellent and Godot is a god damn bad ass.

it has something to do with the giant snake and waiting for barry to return with the rope

OxBlood Nov 10th, 2010 02:27 AM

Fuck I knew it. I just darted for the grave instead of waiting for the master of unroping. Im still not really good at dodging some Zombies, even after all these years...

DougClayton4231 Nov 10th, 2010 11:00 AM

The controls suck too much for you to be able to accurately dodge anything lol.

The Dead Ops Arcade mode on the new COD is better than the zombies mode lol. It's kind of sad that a Smash TV knock off can be more fun than half of the other modes.

Guitar Woman Nov 10th, 2010 01:29 PM

Metroid: Other M.

Fuck every hater, this game is so awesome it made my knees explode.

Although the dialogue and cutscenes smack pretty hard of Hideo Kojima.* And what the hell, games industry, you are a multi-billion dollar establishment, can you still not afford voice actors that don't sound like benzo addicts or high-school drama students?

Spoilers!

OxBlood Nov 10th, 2010 07:23 PM

Bought Two Worlds 2 today. Way better than the first one and waaaay better than Gothic 4 or Risen. Looks pretty good, controls well, the fighting takes a little getting used to but apart from that, I´m kinda suprised by the quality. The english main sounds like he´s asleep though :D

I'm playing Dead Space again. STILL ARSOME

I heard the game was sexist because they turned Samus into a gross weakling. I haven't played it myself though.

I haven't gotten to the scene everyone seems to be complaining about where Ridley shows up and she starts freaking the fuck out, but the phrase I'd use to describe Samus so far is "characterless, deadpan retard." That Smash Bros Brawl shipping between her and Snake suddenly makes perfect sense; literally all of her narration is clarifying whatever completely obvious shit is happening on-screen at the time. It's amazing how giving her a speaking role managed to make her seem like more of an emotionally stunted robot than when she had Gordon's Syndrome.

Also, she's suddenly got ridiculous baby-birthing hips. I don't even know what the fuck, there.

Actually playing it is awesome, though. It's kinda like if Devil May Cry didn't suck a giant shitlog.
