Onto SH3.
I feel bad for people who decided to not get the HD collection, because of the bad reviews. The only really noticeable problem with SH2 was the boat part where you row towards the hotel. The water looked awful. Then there were a couple of cutscenes where the fog/fire effects were reduced compared to the original games. Looked kinda dumb. Other than that, I really had no problems with it. I keep hearing that the PS3 version has some framerate and sound issues, so maybe some of the criticism is justified, I dunno.

My point is, if you are a fan of SH and want 2 & 3 on a current generation console, this is pretty much a must have. Sure, it could've been made a little better, but it's not like there is going to be a collection like this again.

I prefer having the PS2 versions where they actually remembered to include fog and darkness. I saw a video of 3 being played and the inside of the hospital looks like the sun's fucking lodged in the ceiling. The hell's up with that?

Also do they really not give you the option of having the original voice acting in SH3?

Looks foggy to me.


And those videos from the inferior PS3 version, or at least I think so.

Well, doesn't matter so much to me, since MY PS3 still has backwards compatibility :o

I don't know why the fuck Sony thought it'd be a good idea to remove that; the PS2 has one of the best game libraries of any system, up there with the SNES. The PS3 does not, and making it stand on its own like that was not very bright. I guess they did it so this HD re-release crap would be justified, but 60 GB PS3s aren't even expensive anymore so everyone should get one.

Yeah, I was amazed at how strongly people reacted to it. I had no problems whatsoever going through SH2, and from little I've played of SH3 in this so far, it's been the same thing. But then, people on the internet seem to need to bitch to survive, so whatever.

SCEA’s director of marketing John Koller pretty much said the reason for this is becouse 80% of the people buying ps3 don't play ps2 anymore..
i think it was just to boost sell's for ps3 and to kill the ps2

Skullgirls. It's a 2D fighting game built around combos, which is a polite way of saying "it's shit."

Also, you might think that an indie Guilty Gear ripoff would at least not have the same HDTV-or-fuck-you problem that triple-A mainstream games do, but you'd be wrong.

I usually don't even touch fighting games since the last one that wasn't shit was Bushido Blade, but it was recommended to me by a friend who never plays them either, and I'm in the market for a console-exclusive game with really good online multiplayer. So far the only one I've found is Mario Strikers Charged, a game that is nearly five years old.

I broke down and bought MGS4 for this reason, but apparently Konami's gonna shut Metal Gear Online down in June, and have already made it impossible for new players to get in. What the fucking hell? If any company pulled this with a similarly-popular PC game they'd the feet of a million angry fans shoved up their ass. Is that just how games work now? They're not allowed to be played for longer than the average lifespan of a fucking gerbil?

That Massive Action Game thing looks sort of interesting, but it's rather old and I'm afraid that as soon as I buy it they're gonna kill it too. Same with Fat Princess, although that looks a lot more appealing than some brown military shooter.

Decided to try Noitu Love 2 on steam. It's the bee's knees. Very nice spritework and some pretty interesting mechanics involving combat. Not totally crazy about it, but pretty cool. Reminds me of Treasure games back when Treasure made games besides SHMUPs.

Also, part of me wants to play Pokemon Black/White. I haven't played since that time bigtimecow and I accidentally got addicted to Diamond and Pearl for 200 hours.

What I gathered from this is that you're bad at fighting games and don't play many of them, haven't played Guilty Gear more than a few times, and your TV is shit

I am bad at fighting games because I never play them because they are bad. It is a vicious cycle, but I'm not really losing anything because as mentioned fighting games are hideously bad except for awesome samurai sword fight sims

Fuck why don't they make a new Bushido Blade? Could a game like that even exist today?

Alan Wake's American Nightmare

Pretty good so far. It's just basically more of the same, but I liked the first Alan Wake, so i'm not complaining.

Warlock - Master of the Arcane.

It's a mix between Civ and Master of Magic. Nice game if a little rough around the edges in terms of UI.

Portal 2

Better than the first one and amazingly addictive. J.K. Simmons and Stephen Merchant make this even more amazing.

Been playing A Valley Without Wind.

I almost passed it up because I had never heard of it, and the title sounded like a turn-of-the-century romance novel. It has some interesting elements to it, but nothing to really keep you in for the longterm. Plus, the game is apparently still in the beta phase, even though they're selling it, and different aspects of the gameplay change from one day to the next. I took a break for a few days, and when I came back, they had nerfed (their words) a couple of my favorite abilities.

Maybe try it months from now when a Steam sale drops it down to like $3.
