Didn't see a thread for just general chat about games so I thought I'd make one.
So yeah, comment on what you're playing or on new games not worth making a new thread over.

Suddenly, Bionic Commando Rearmed 2!

It's kind of ironic that the arcade hd remake of the classic bionic commando did farrrr better than the third person remake that did poorly.

Gameplay it was ok, but the plot was boring, the character unlikeable and the controls still feel fiddly even after you figure everything out.

That and apparently you find out your arm has your dead wifes soul.

Note to the wise:

Do not pick up "Glory of Heracles" as it is shit.

Horrifically bad story, far too easy, unsatisfying ending... Ugh. That was thirty hours of my life I won't be getting back.

So it seems I found the game I really wanted to play again. It's called Shivers. It's been a long while since I played this game. I must say, it's absolutely amazing. I love the story behind the museum and what happened to it. Hahahaha those crazy Ixupi.

Gears 3-out next year but damn I want it now. Kotaku has some Russian magazine shots of the new look characters and the....things they and the Locust are fighting. Looking forward to it but hope the Lambent are Gears Flood.

Just saw a quick look of Alan Wake on Giant Bomb, man the lighting in that game is amazing, and very cinematic. Does what that Alone in the Dark reboot should have done in the first place.

which makes me more annoyed MS canclled the PC version. >:[

Jeff, that's clearly because PCs can never be as powerful as the consoles, and the developers knew this, they just couldn't scale the game down to cope with such ancient architecture.

The announcement of a so-called new X-COM game that happens to be a first person shooter which so far has absolutely no connection to one of the most praised games of all time fills me with sheer rage.

You might want to read PC Gamer UK's exclusive preview then, as the basic setup is quite similar to classic X-Com despite in first person. You always have 2 wingmen, you can go off in random missions from your central base and you can upgrade your weaponry and equipment.

the flood levels were my fave, especially the first one on h3 where they are jumping around in the fog around you before you really see one. loved how it actually showed infection in that one.

...2 wingmen. As opposed to a 12 man squad with tank backup that you controlled isometrically, after downing UFOs with jets you dispatch after them and collecting carefully managed resources.

This is like saying that one FPS game Yahtzee reviewed that had time travelling is an accurate remake of Civilisation.

I have recently been playing and replaying the PS3 demo for Conan.

It borrows heavily from God of War, but has a bit of flavour of its own.
For a start, it's really, really satisfying. Heads and arms and legs come off all the time, and I don't mean like in GoW. I mean when you hit someone to death, the bit of them you hit flies off, and all the dead wusses ragdollise everywhere like wankers.

Decapitating piledriver? Yes please, because it gives health when you do it. Also, the punch move is called "Camel Punch," which, for anyone who never saw the Schwarzeneger classic, is because of this best moment in a film ever: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S7tOWoDVQLU

Raarrr! I am Conan, voiced by Ron Perlman! Watch me throw these boxes at the baddies! Rarr!

I am so getting this game at some point.

It is a bit of a low number. Considering Freedom Fighters allowed you to control 12 men/women to liberate the US, and to some extent Kane & Lynch.

Still, I have a more open minded view of this remake so I'll judge when I see it in action.

Don't forget, there was alot of hate when Fallout 3 went FPS, and look where that went.

There was also a lot of hate when Dragon Ball Evolution was announced.

It's not blind hate. From the information we've seen, the game has literally nothing to do with X-COM beyond the name.

And there's already been an X-COM shooter. It was dogshit. The gameplay of the X-COM games does not translate at all to a FPS. It's like trying to turn Transport Tycoon into a platformer.

No it doesn't.
You might disagree, but these are clearly points which have received thought.
Your argument is completely ignoring all relevant information, and so's your face.

So I finally got Super Street Fighter IV, stupid Zavvi not delivering until after I'd gone on holiday. D:

I picked up the new Sin & Punishment today. Well, I say picked up - I had to look through 3 shops. Anyway, a bit of backstory: the first S&P came out on the N64, and didn't get released outside Japan until the Virtual Console on the Wii. That sold well, so Treasure finally got to make a sequel.

It's basically a massive nostalgia trip. Firstly, it's an old-style shooter, not on-rails like House of the Dead or Dead Space: Extraction but more like Starfox back when it was good. It's got a traditional difficulty level too, which is nice in an age of party games and fitness aids. It's good-looking for a Wii game, except for the player characters for some reason. But enough gushing, I doubt it will be popular enough for Nintendo to shake their kiddy image. But that's why we have No More Heroes 2 out next month. It's a good year to be a nintendo fan.

Damn, I might have to try Sin and Punishment now. Being a Star Fox fan is almost as painful as being a Sonic or X-COM fan.
