Kingdoms of amalur. The expansions are discounted for this weekend so it gave me the opportunity to play it again...

I switched out my harddrive since the last time I played the game, so now I'm starting over. But that's ok, it's a fun game so I don't mind.

@get2sammyb I would think that with all the video game playing, your dexterity would only increase as you get older ;).

I'm going to be playing some WWE 2k14 and I just picked up Fallout 3 for 5 bucks. I played Fallout 1&2, and loved them. Looking forward to trying out 3.



Rogue76 commented on Review: CounterSpy (PlayStation 4):

Good review. I think you were fair with the strengths and weaknesses of the game and also acknowledged the effort that was put into the game. I haven't played very much of the game, I can see what you mean about walking into a room and not given a chance to hide, and it soon becomes a shoot out.

I think based on the amount of effort that was put into the game, there is probably a bit of a disappointment that some of the mechanics of the game didn't work out as it was intended. Certainly doesn't make the game unplayable (and I don't think you were saying that) just disappointed.

When I get a chance (rather IF I get a chance) to game I'll be playing some WWE 2k14, maybe some Defiance, and picked up Madden 13 (used and cheap). Haven't played a Madden game in a while, so I'll give it a go.

@odd69 wasn't there a discount if you downloaded early? At least is thought there was (that's why I downloaded early).

Didn't get any game playing in this weekend. Had a wedding to attend and some reading I needed to catch up on. Hopefully get to play some games this week :). Been hooked on Defiance. :)



Rogue76 commented on Soapbox: Stop Sobbing Over Retail Releases and...:

An interesting read.

A few things that come to my mind when I read this article. First, I enjoy playing indie games, I thoroughly enjoyed Journey, and RCR brought me back to my childhood (especially with all the references :)). Perhaps it's because I grew up in an era where the graphics...well...stunk! While I am in awe of graphics now a days, the graphics aren't what pull me into a game, it's the game itself, and if it's a good game, I'll play it, doesn't matter if it's an indie game or a big named studio.

The second thought that came to mind was a program I heard on NPR, which talked about the state of video games. What I found interesting is that big studios put in a lot of time and money to make games that take 40+ hours to play, when the "average" gamer only plays about 10 hours of the game, then goes online somewhere to view the ending of the game. Because of this, a lot of studios are looking to make shorter games.

Now I say "average" gamer, but I'm not implying anyone here is an "average" gamer, I think the people on here are extraordinary gamers :). But I do think that a lot of people my age, (37 if anyone is wondering) that grew up playing Atari, NES, SNES, PSone, PS2, PC, etc...the gamers of my time now have other responsibilities, and thus, don't have time to play the long epic games that big studios produce.

That's just my two cents.



Rogue76 commented on NBA 2K14 on PS4 Will Make You a Basketball Fan:

@Madd_Hatter401 Yeah I would have especially sucked if I just showed past me the game, but didn't let me play childhood would have been ruined.

I would like 2K sports to make another NFL game too, the last NFL game they were allowed to make was really awesome for it's time; I enjoyed watching sports center each week and seeing highlights and scores from around the league.

I remember purchasing the PSOne. I was a senior in Highschool. I bought the system because I thought the games looked better than other systems at the time. I remember it being somewhat expensive, but at the time, I didn't really have any responsibilities, so saving for the system wasn't that difficult.

A few things I will always remember about the system. First was playing Resident Evil. I remember turning off all the lights, and literally screaming, when one of the zombies that was lying on the ground reached up and grabbed my character as I walked by. That was awesome!

Second memory that comes to mind was playing Madden. I remember my dad watching me play the game, and there was James Brown giving an update of the upcoming games, and he said "It's a weekday, how are you watching football?"

Third memory is playing hours and hours of Final Fantasy 7, only to have my then girlfriend, play my saved game and beating the game while I was away. I was not happy.



Rogue76 commented on Store Update: 17th September 2013 (North America):

@XCWarrior Actually, I believe Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch and Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning are only $19.99 and you don't have to be a PS Plus member to get these discounts. I know that's more that what you currently have on your account, but those are good prices for those games!
