I haven't played Hitman Absolution but I bought Sleeping Dogs a few weeks ago for $30 and absolutely love it. I'm sad that I'm almost done the game. I have 3 more Favours and 3 more main story missions to do. I wish they could have made the story a bit longer. The drug busts and races are cool though.

Got carried away at Target and now I need to quit my job or something to make a dent in my current game load:

Batman Arkham Asylum: solid fun game but its getting a little easy/repetitive. Still very good though I'm just playing too many games

Infamous 1: Crushed right through the first area of the city, beat that boss then put it down. I've been too busy to open it back up. Also very fun game but I was demoralized ending in a new area and not being able to get back hahah

Fall Out NV: Odd putting this here. I had almost the whole game beat and did everything but I went to the Old World Blues add on with a 12 MB + save and it glitches every 2 minutes. I googled that and found that was a common issue. I will need to restart my game and go their earlier.

Just Cause 2: Shouldn't really be here; barely started it and I haven't played in while. Too over whelmed with the others.

Assassins Creed 2: Almost done

Bioshock 1: Half way through

New Games:

Mass Effect 3: Pulled through my ME2 player and I have just gotten through the Turian moon part and picked up my favorite team mate. I have a question on this: Are any of the DLCs worth it?

Also just bought Dishonored and Skyrim but haven't started them yet. I will not allow myself to open either until I make some headway above.

That is so many games... good thing i have some vacation saved up.

Still going through Saints Row 3. Love it, the mission variety is incredible.
I find it funny when Rockstar will say they can't do things on this generation (customized players, mission co-op, etc.) that Saints Row has nailed down.

My favorite part of that game was probably the luchador match where you have a chainsaw mowing down enemies while the intercom speaker players "You're the best around!"

The amount of randomness and humor in that game is just too good to pass up. The DLC was pretty funny too.

Having played and beaten both games in the last six months, I can tell you that Vesperia has a better story and characters while Graces f has a better battle engine. Graces f does take a while to get started but playing as kids in the beginning was adorable, I thought Also, with Graces f, you can tell it's a port of a Wii game

I haven't gotten Omega, but Leviathen is worth it IMO, solid 3-5 hours

I have never ever played Assassin's Creed franchise before but picked up AC2 for under 8 eur. What a game. I also purchased two DLC for it with 160 and 280 msp at xbla. Will definately buy Brotherhood and Revelations. AC3 is getting some mixed up reviews.

I have the worst case of gamer ADD. In addition to all the stuff I started on the previous page I have also re started Metroid Prime.

I've had Echoes for at least a year (untouched), and I bought Corruption yesterday. Might as well play them all.

From Ashes is ok. The new character is kind of interesting and the assault rifle is pretty good. It only adds one new mission though.

Leviathan is more about interesting locations and background/lore on the Reapers. I think it's regarded as pretty good.

Omega is not well regarded. It's basically all combat and adds very little to the story, and is $15.

Thanks guys. I'm landing back home tonight and thinking about a mass effect weekend so I'm going to probably buy/download the both of them this afternoon. I was mostly thinking about from ashes as I was curious about the protheons (sp?) but I will look at Leviathan too; I love the cool locations in this game so another one or 2 would be nice. I think I am early enough in game that I wont need to restart or that if I do I haven't lost much.

If you like the ME universe and it's lore, those are the two DLCs to get. Forgot that From Ashes is actually DLC, got it for free with my collector's edition (first CE I've ever bought)

Recently finished FTL. Played it for 20+ hours at work the first 3 days I picked it up. Now that I'm done its worn off but $6 well spent, that's for sure.

Just about to wrap up Persona 4 Golden as well, amazing game.

Other than that still picking away at Borderlands 2 and Assassins Creed 3. Both good games, but neither drew me in where I feel the urge to play them.

Pretty much forgot about this game, now really looking forward to the demo when I get home.

If anyone here goes to IGN, don't watch their preview. They warn about spoilers, but then go on to show absolutely no gameplay and spoil the huge plot twist the start of the game creates.

They basically ruin the first 2 hours of the game that would normally probably be one of the big moments of the game.


I'm pretty pissed I watched it.

Ni no Kuni is another of like five or six interesting looking 2012 games that got bumped.

Just sort of a realization I've had after synthesizing some of the game of the year discussions about how there was virtually nothing but straight "like the last one but better" refinement outside of Indie developers this year.

This year looks pretty bleak. Ni no Kuni and Remember Me are probably the only new IP's I can think of off the top of my head I'm excited for. I'm kind of getting zombied out so I'm not as high on Last of Us as most.

I'm hoping there will be some big announcements at E3, but that pretty much means those games wont be out until at least the Christmas season. The new consoles being released should bring some new IP's with them if history has taught us anything though.

I'd like to say that I can already see myself buying more games in 2013 than in 2012, even after considering the inevitable gaming void between June and December thanks to the suggested next gen, but that hinges on whether or not stuff like Last Guardian, Dragon's Crown and Versus 13 actually still exist.

I've lost faith in Last Guardian, which is sad because it looked like it was going to be a great story.

Not aware of Dragon's Crown, I'll have to look into it.

Beat Borderlands yesterday and I'll have to agree with the consensus that the ending was probably one of the worst I've seen. Just a huge letdown. Does anyone know why the devs decided to basically have no ending? Mind boggling.

It was essenially just Fallout Lite which I didn't mind because I love Fallout. Hated the fast regeneration of enemies in the beginning when my guy wasn't as strong. Spent way too much time killing meaningless creatures/raiders. I've started the DLC but it hasn't been that interesting. Got Borderlands 2 yesterday, too, but will probably slog through some of my backlog.

Started Spec Ops The Line yesterday - pretty average game so far. I'm not too far in so I haven't seen anything too crazy which is what I'm looking for.
