post #51 of 126

Just picked up Dark Sector and The Darkness (original), as well as ALAN WAKE, a game I wanted to throw into the mix here. I'll wait until we pull the trigger on a particular game before I start playing any of them.

post #52 of 126

I am currently downloading all the free updates for Red Dead Redemption and pondering adding money to my account so I can purchase the Undead, which I never did. I played on a friends, but not mine.

I love Undead Nightmare, personally. I think that'd make a great Game Club choice.

post #54 of 126

Bayonetta definitely needs to go in queue if for nothing else than the number of WTF's the cut scenes and the incredible bosses will induce.   It's a silly, silly game but the combat, graphics, and art design are some of the best of this generation

post #55 of 126

Never finished Undead Nightmare, and voted for Bayonetta the first time round so would be cool with either.

 

I'd propose throwing Enslaved: Odyssey to the West into the mix as well. It's a well-reviewed game that didn't sell (For an added bonus, making it dirt cheap) has an emphasis on cinematic storytelling AND features Andy Serkis heavily. Seems tailor-made for some Chewer attention. 

post #56 of 126

I've played Undead Nightmare, would happily play either Alan Wake or Enslaved - but I can't say I'd be onboard for Bayonetta. Happy to go with the concensus tho.

post #57 of 126

Screw Bayonetta.

post #58 of 126

Ive already played Bayonetta, so Enslaved might get my vote.

post #59 of 126
Not to take anything away from its Chewer fans, but I was underwhelmed by Enslaved. Really no interest in playing it again--but I guess that's what the voting's for.
post #60 of 126

I'm even more curious about Alan Wake to be honest, it looks like the equivalent of playing a pulpy Steven King novel. That said, I may be caught up with Witcher 2 at least until early May I feel (how many conceivable gameplay hours are there for those who've played W2?).

post #61 of 126
Count me in for Alan Wake.

I tried playing Enslaved, but HATED the girl that controlled my character so much that I killed that ungrateful bitch every chance I got (and then died). Whatever happend to the old standby of a girl asking for help?
post #62 of 126

Completed my second Alan Wake runthrough not terribly long ago (on "Nightmare" difficulty), and wasn't planning on doing a third so soon, but was thinking about doing the two additional DLC episodes and American Nightmare this summer-ish.

 

Might be up for this much, if the group decides to go there.

Keep throwing games out there, guys. I'll be opening up a new poll come next Monday.

 

Sorry Singer and Rain Dog, though: I'm voting Bayonetta.

post #64 of 126

Just finished Bayonetta last night; I'll keep my pie hole shut about it and if it's chosen I can put my .02 in then.

 

I know people are burned out on Arkham but I woudn't mind a bit of groupthink on the first one.

post #65 of 126

Still liking the idea of Enslaved, and Bayonetta would be cool as I never finished it the first time, but I'm also up for Witcher 2 as well. I'm picking it up this week and won't be too far into it when the next month starts, and with the EE being added to the PC version as well it seems like good timing.

Okay that would be incredibly easy for me as any game I play for the club will be competing with Witcher 2 anyway.

 

Either way tho I reckon I will get a gaming diary thread going for that one a la Bioshock so I reckon it'll get a good discussion workout regardless.

 

post #67 of 126

Damn, no chance of Vanquish? ive yet to play that one, and ive already played the hell out of Bayonetta

post #68 of 126

I'd like to jump on this. I'm usually a casual gamer, but providing a forum for discussion would help take me out of my apathy.And I like the emphasis on cheap games. biggrin.gif

 

Below are some suggestions for now or the future.

 

1. X-Men Origins Wolverine -- Heard it's a pretty good hack and slash game

2. Dead Space -- Might be too old, but I haven't played it

3. Castlevania: Lords of Shadow -- The last 3D Castlevania game I played was on the N64, and it was absolute ass. 

 

post #69 of 126

I would love some help with the trickier parts of Dead Space.

post #70 of 126

These are all great suggestions.

Ive played them all, and I can say all are good choices; Dead Space is the standout of the three, so i'd go with Wolverine (which is so violent and crazy fun its disscusion would be the equivalent of a B-action movie thread) or Castlevania (Because while its pretty damn great and broke the curse of the series 3D efforts, its still a bit controversial to old school gamers because of its twist and development cycle; game wasnt a Castlevania title at all on its beginings).

Or we could go really old school and go with the Sega Genesis collection; its cheap and both on PS3 and X360, and it would be fun to take a trip to the past.
 

 

post #72 of 126

Hey if we're going with cheap games, I'm sure we can all find copies of Jericho for a song!

 

 

 

 

 

 

No?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

...Guys?

post #73 of 126
How about Darksiders?

Since the sequel was announced I had an urge to check out the first game.

Enough people have played (or, rather, SHOULD have played) Dead Space to ace it out.

Wolverine's fun as hell, there just really isn't much to discuss there. It's a pretty straightforward "fuck up anything that moves" kinda game.

Lords of Shadow's a fine pick, though. And it'll give me an excuse to throw down money for those two DLC episodes I never got to.

I got this on the cheap, but haven't even played it yet because I'd have to disconnect my flightstick setup in order to use keyboard and mouse on it. I'd love to give it a go.

I tried playing that one, just out of love for "Undying", but I really couldnt handle more than a  couple hours; its a shame, because if the game had online coop multiplayer, it would had been a much more awesome animal; seriously, squad based supernatural multiplayer FPS? It would had been fun as hell to play, given the diferent abilities and variety of the squad.

The DLC isnt worth it unless you really, really were left hanging by the post credits scene in the original game; it explains a few things, but in terms of gameplay, it doesnt really add much to the overall experience; I think it can be safely bypassed if we choose the game; Lords of Shadow, in terms of plot, gameplay and style has enough material to talk about, specially for fans of the classic Castlevanias and veteran survivors of previous 3D games in the series (although i never had a problem with the PS2 games, but Lords of Shadow is the pinnacle of the series when it comes to 3D).

Hell, we could really go old school and pick Symphony of the Night, since its cheap and pretty much on every platform in a digital form.

This is a fantastic idea as well.

post #79 of 126

Symphony of the Night? Hell yes. I just saw it on my 360 the other day and thinking it was high time for a revisit.

post #80 of 126

I've shamefully never played that one. I'd be down for some old school 2D Castlevania.

Holy shit is this ever going on the list. Even if we dont play as a group, GET ON THAT.

post #82 of 126

Symphony of the Night is a really good choice. It's gathering dust on my 360 because I still haven't completely figured out the item system. Rock-Solid gameplay though.

post #83 of 126

Haven't played Symphony of the Night in almost 15 years. Sign me up.

post #84 of 126

UGH. No thanks. Have fun, folks.

post #85 of 126

We still have to vote! At least, I think there's a poll. Am I mistaken?

post #86 of 126
Thread Starter 

Everything mentioned as a serious choice will be compiled for a poll that'll be posted Monday.

 

Singer, I ask this with zero snark or hostility, but what exactly would you like to play?

post #87 of 126

I'll have to bow out on Castlevania. I was hoping for maybe The Darkness or Alpha Protocol?

So, why don't we play "Undying"?

 I'm up for anything, really. I act grumpier than I actually am.

post #90 of 126

Unless the Supreme Court steals another election, it looks like this one's about decided. I just ordered Wake, and it will take discipline to hold off until May.

 

Perhaps I'll catch up with Symphony of the Night until then...

post #91 of 126
Thread Starter 

So, unless there's any complaints, which there doesn't seem to be:

 

May (starts 5/21): Alan Wake

June: Bayonetta

July: Alpha Protocol

 

Im also voting that there be a gap of a week between games just to give everyone a breather before we tackle each of the next, give people a chance to play catch up if theyre slow as well.

post #92 of 126

I like that schedule. 

post #93 of 126

Sounds great.

post #94 of 126

FYI, Alpha Protocol for the 360 is on sale for 8.82 at Amazon.

post #95 of 126

I'll be skipping Bayonetta, but I'll be happy to return for Alpha Protocol, which I got for nine bucks used at an indie game store.

Same. Call it a failing of mine but that game, no matter how good the gameplay, just looks... bloody silly.

post #97 of 126
I won't be able to do Alan Wake as I will be out of town.
post #98 of 126

I have ALPHA PROTOCOL for PS3 sitting unopened somewhere. I will plan to coordinate with y'all for that one.

Oh, it IS bloody silly. It almost put me off the first time I played it, before the gameplay dug its hooks in (And it hooks them in HARD). It stays more camp than Day Three of the Glastonbury Festival, but there's also some interesting postmodern portrayals of ancient christian iconography in there too, like the Archangels. Also, lots of references/tributes to classic Sega games. Trust me, it ain't all camp.

I also thought the game was oddly, but effectively heartfelt when dealing with Cereza. That's before you vertically ride a motorcycle up a guided missile intended to launch God into space, but still.

 

But, we'll get to that.
