PEW! PEW! PEW! The Video Game Thread! (General Discussion)
WooleyI gotta say, almost at the end of Bioshock 2, I think it's an excellent game.I think getting over "it's not Bioshock" was hard for me the first time (I didn't even finish it), but I remember thinking the second time that, "wow, there's some gold here", now playing it like 6 or 7 years later, the game stands on its own with something bordering on excellence. The villain's backstory, which I thought was a weak-point the first time around and I don't remember what I thought the second time around, is actually cleverly conceived and pretty well executed, giving the game an enemy that may not be as leeringly menacing as Ryan and Fontaine, but might stir even more thought in the player than either of them did.Some really great levels and set-pieces just to savor, one leading into the next, it really is just a well put-together game with great atmosphere and a lot of overall fun to mine.It takes a level to get itself going, but really, by about halfway through the second level, it starts to become inspired.

El MoscaI still think that The Witcher 3 is one of the best games I've ever played. The attention to detail, the main story and both dlcs where great, I loved Gerald and his interaction with each of the other characters, the artistic design, the evolution of the main character all?was great for me. I'm still?playing it just to finish Blood and Wine and I've completed all of the side?quests, contracts and treasure hunts. Even GWYNT (the game inside the game) was great and very addictive.?Also CD Project Red is admirable for their attention and love for their products.The only thing that interrupted me playing it was Dying Light which is also great but with a very different pace?than the Witcher, but I strongly recommend the bundle with all games and expansions available now.
second viewing of Rogue One (General Discussion)
WooleyI'm on Bioshock 2 now.First Bioshock remains my favorite game of all time (despite the final battle) after replay.Bioshock 2 is unquestionably a step down, and it's really all in the design. However, I remember well from playing it years ago that the game gets better and better as it goes along and one gets used to the design differences. I'm looking forward to getting to that point but regardless, it's fun to be in Rapture again, even if it doesn't quite feel like Rapture.
Ned FlandersI haven't posted in a bit but here's what I've played sinceResident Evil 7really really loved this game. The puzzles weren't too tough but they were a decent challenge, the first person perspective doesn't ruin the feeling of a resident evil game and the new antagonists were really creepy. My only complaints were that it was really easy? I'm not really all that good at video games but I played this one on normal and I think I only died like twice maybe?I"m still playing Overwatch, and still having fun with it.I decided I would try and complete the Mass Effect trilogy recently too. I finished Mass Effect 1 a year or two ago and I didn't really like it so that kinda put me off of playing the second for a while. I've been playing the second one a bit now and I think it suffers from a lot of the same issues as ME1. The dialogue, plot, characters, etc are all top notch as far as video games go but the gameplay connecting them is some of the most dry repetitive third person cover shooting I've ever seen. I'm 4 or 5 hours in and practically all the missions have been "go here, kill x amount of enemies, new character joins your team". One of my friends is a huge ME fan and he says the game is roughly 30 hours to complete and I honestly don't know if I wanna play 25 more hours of this. does it pick up or are these game just not for me?

Janson JinnistanI don't give a shit what anyone says. ?The J. Geils Band were a solid rock band long before their pop breakout. ?And not that I don't even like that aspect of their career ("Love Stinks" is a goddamn classic"), but anyone familiar should know that their live LP, Full House, is a boogie standard. ?It's not the night that Lester Bangs sat in on typewriter, but it very well as may have been.

Wooley138WooleyAfter playing several less-than-inspiring games, I decided to replay original Bioshock remastered for PS4.Yep, still the best game I ever played.It's a good one. I think they did a great job with the port, too. Although some of the freakier game-freaks on NeoGAF went nuts at certain water effects looking different.Wooley, have you played the Metro Redux games? I have not, haven't even heard of them, what's that about?
