After watching Alien, Aliens, Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection for the first time (yes, I've never seen an Alien movie), Alien: Isolation is one of my most anticipated games. That game looks really great in general but after watching all the movies I want it even more.

I went ahead and bought Aliens: Colonial Marines. I've heard bad things but then again I also heard bad things about other games I loved, for example Alpha Protocol and that's easily one of the best action RPG's I've ever played, I enjoyed that more than I enjoyed any Mass Effect game (although I really like the ME series). Anywho, can't go wrong for 20 bucks especially when I hear the multiplayer is fun and that people still play it.

Played some Destiny Beta at a friend's house. It's not a bad game by all means but some things about it just aren't right IMO.

First of all the aiming controls suck ass because you use a gamepad and they give you an aimbot to make it easier. I take that as an insult. We tried using keyboard and mouse but it didn't work, maybe because it's still a beta. All I know is gamepads and shooters should stay as far away from each other as possible.

Second, they seriously reduced your choices when upgrading weapons and armor. In the trailers and early gameplay videos you can see you can collect weapon parts and upgrade them individually. We'll in the beta you can't. You have one set of predetermined upgrades for each weapon and you just buy them. And there goes that whole part of the game that made it interesting...

Third, the loading times are baaaaaad. About a minute and a half to load the first area of the game, not as bad when you go back to the Tower. May be a beta problem.

Fourth, there is no ******* loot. Maybe I'm just spoiled by all the other games out there but we played two characters to level 5 and in total we found maybe 4 or 5 items (excluding the quest rewards).

Fifth, it only made me want to play Borderlands even more. Again, it's not a bad game by all means but the way it is now (without the custom weapon modification, basically no loot, have to use gamepad) I might as well play Borderlands 2 or the upcoming Pre-Sequel on my PC.

Sixth, you need ******* Playstation Plus for basically everything from joining a party (yes, that's correct) to PvP.

Seventh, it's not going to come to PC because Bungie is led by an asshole who claims nobody likes to play shooters with keyboard and mouse (actual quote) and they single handedly revolutionized FPS when they made Halo. What a jackass.

This is normal. You have always needed an online sub to play online. PS3 used to be free but they announced a sub price for PS4. Xbox one needs an online sub as did 360.

The whole game is online at all times but you need to sub to play co-op although the other players are there on the map and you can see and interact with them. They basically do not give you all the game content unless you subscribe. I mean, what the hell? And besides that, I don't see why I should pay another fee for playing online when I already have to pay for internet. That's one reason I never got an XBOX and it's also one reason why I will never buy another Sony or Microsoft console. Game subscriptions will basically die off once WoW goes offline and console subscriptions should have never been a thing in the first place IMO.

It sucks but it is what it is. Subs suck but companies are going to milk it for all its worth.

I ran through KOTOR in a few days. Got all the most powerful crystals, the star forge robe, levelled up my Revan perfectly and just ran through everything. Probably going to re-play KOTOR II with the restored content mod soon.

Metroid games rule well except other M and the spinoff games like metroid pinball

Keyboard/Mouse is the only way to play this game at the moment and I complained about this as well. I cannot stand the controls in Destiny, there's simply something wrong with them, the gameplay is just not that good at all. Even Halo 4 has better controls, there's just something off about the gameplay. The loading as you say is also a problem, the rest I am okay with becuase in this type of game it's mainly for the online multiplayer so all the single player stuff I'm not too worried about.

The main thing that makes this game almost unplayable to me is the field of view. It literally makes me nauseous. I honestly don't think I'll be able to play this at all until a PC version gets released or unless they increase the FoV by release. I play on a 60 inch TV and the FoV is set at like 10 or something, it's awful and near unplayable on my TV. If I had a smaller TV it might not be an issue but as it is I'm basically looking at a big ass gun spinning around trying to find enemies next to me because the FoV is so damn bad that I can't see shit around my character. FPS games in general have this issue but Destiny more so, a stupid design decision by them if it stays like this. FPS games should always have a PC version with an FoV slider, always. FPS on consoles are just horrible more often than not.

As for what I've been playing, I played some Colonial Marines... it's alright so far. The main thing about it that sucks is the checkpoint system, it's really bad. I'll need to put more time into it though to see if I like it or not.
