Also, the idea of basically 40 minutes of story at the start, 8 hours of no/little story, then 20 minutes of heavy story at the end is simply awful pacing. I literally felt bored at points in the game because the combat just isn't that good and with no story keeping me interested, I wondered why I was still playing. In fact, I didn't even beat the game, I got up untl the last fight on the airship (had no clue it was the last fight at the time), died twice and I was so tired and bored of the actual gameplay that I stopped and Googled the ending, so technically I never even beat the game although in hindsight had I known that was the very last fight in the game, I would have pushed through and beat it.

I mean it's not a bad game and if a person still doens't get bored out of their mind playing average FPS gameplay then it might even be good, just extremely overrated and I think it's because the Bioshock label is slapped across the cover, I've been guilty of doing that for certain series myself.
Exactly how I felt. I bought the game the day it came out and only just finished it tonight. I blew through the first 2 hours but then I just stopped caring. Nothing was happening. You were just killing wave after wave after wave of the same exact enemies. Elizabeth would say 2 sentences after you finished and then you'd go back to nothing. And the game introduces choices in the beginning but then stops using them completely. Probably because in the end, they don't even matter.

Game wasn't bad, just not as good as I had hoped. The problem could have been that my expectations were too high. Made me really want to replay Bioshock 1 though.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

How was Elizabeth as a companion done better in other games (aside from being... female... and a girl... i guess) and in which one(s)? I don't play console exclusives so I may have missed something.

Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?

Trip from Enslaved was far and wide better than Elizabeth, she was used to help solve puzzle, helped in the platforming, helped in the combat, was a much more fleshed out character on the whole and basically did everything Elizabeth does except better. That game also had a better ending IMO.

If you pick up Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate we can hit it up, I know you like challenging games and MH3 definitely is one after the initial tutorial/quests to get you settled in.

Oh I wish i could have posted yesterday I got that game for free because I haggled but I sold it because I thought it would get old fast, I traded it in so i could pre order the wind waker game, I traded in teken tag as well those games have always been generic to me.

Protoss just has the luxury of being able to put cannons in their mineral line. Since they are detectors and attack land/air,they can essentially shut down drops whether it be marines or widow mines.

But the mines can still be successful against their army, you just need detection yourself to snipe their observer and then they have to either eat the mines or pull back until they get another observer.

I started playing Bayonetta again and just like that I was reminded why I didn't bother to finish it. Its one of those games that tries way too hard to be cool. The main character is unlikable and the side characters are annoying. The graphics and the soundtrack are beautiful though. I'll keep playing though. Maybe I'll warm up to her.


You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

Lots of badass news for the 3DS.

A brand new Zelda announced for it, and not just any Zelda, it takes place in the same time as A Link to the Past, and the gameplay looks very similar to that game, not a remake, a whole new Zelda.

Also there is a brand new Yoshi's Island, it looks amazing. Bravely Default: Flying Fairy has been announced to hit America now, it's basically a badass Final Fantasy style game done by Square, it's awesome that they are releasing it in the states finally.

There are some other games/features of previously announced games shown/talked about, but man it's good to be a 3DS owner right now, that's all I've been playing lately and with games like that coming out it's just an awesome console to own.
