You know, none of those games really scare me other than the occassional jack in the box type of scare. The Last of Us is the only game that has ever actually made me experience true fear... I owe that to the sound design, Clickers still send a shiver down my spine.

The first Dead Space game was one of the few that actually managed to throw a few scares my way (especially the living area with the mummified bodies and Twinkle Twinkle Little Star playing in the background). Going thru that game in a darkened room with a pair of headphones was unsettling. The other games in the series were fun but never really matched that first game in terms of scares as the focus gradually changed towards combat over survival horror (not necessarily a bad thing, but just different).

Last of Us left me completely cold. I never once jumped and about the only scene which surprised me was when Joel wakes up after the prologue and you realize how much time has passed; that was the only interesting little wrinkle. Beyond that, it struck me as a second rate survival adventure with bolted on controls straight out of Uncharted.


I've been playing Killzone: Shadowfall lately. Like the prior games in the series, it is visually beautiful with vistas that are almost photorealistic at times but also kind of boring in terms of gameplay. The Killzone games never really got the pacing right for me and this newest game shares that problem. As such, I end up playing in in spurts - I go for a few hours, lost interest, then don't touch it again for a few days.

OT, but if you want a scare...

I have played most of the games considered to be 'scary' over the years and Outlast is truly 'jump out of your seat' scary.

Games like Fatal Frame, Silent Hill and Dead Space are weak sauce compared to Outlast.

I guess it is coming to PS4 this year.

Alas, I'm not much of a drinker. I know my opinion is unpopular and way out of the mainstream but that was how the game ended up resonating with me. Maybe it was going into it having read all the glowing reviews and it just not living up to the hype (had the same experience with the Ken Levine Bioshock games) but LoU did nothing for me and I wound up selling it shortly after I beat it. I think part of my problem was that the game came out so late in the PS3's life cycle and, as such, it really didn't offer up anything new. The environments were all detailed but pretty uninteresting (the same old abandoned and delapidated structures I've seen countless times already) and the gameplay just standard, straightfoward fare without any interesting wrinkles to it.

Thanks for the heads up; I'll keep an eye out for it though quite honestly I've never been a big fan of survival horror. I think the reason I enjoyed Dead Space so much was that it changed the location to outer space and having always been a sci-fi fan, that environment really worked for me, plus the fact that the first game always struck me as a cross between Alien and John Carpenter's The Thing.



Anyhow, Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus has been deeply discounted and for any R&C fans it is definitely worth a look. The game is much shorter than prior entries, largely due to the exclusion of side-activities like space combat or hoverboard racing, but the gameplay is a welcome return to the classic R&C formula with wacky weapons, groan inducing humor, the obligatory arena and some interesting worlds to explore. A nice sendoff for the duo on PS3, especially after the past couple of efforts (All for One, Full Frontal Assault).

Jumped back into Kingdoms of Amalur, after letting it gather dust on the shelf. I had played it a LOT early on in 2013, but never finished it. Man - I forgot how cool it is. And I realized I had 77 hours into it! You definitely get your money's worth with that game. I'm gonna try and finish that this month.

Jr and I are playing through Diablo III. That game is SO full of win - we love it. I have no idea how long it is, but we're like 21st level.

I have Mass Effect 3 waiting in the wings.

That's am opposing view from what most people had ...

TLoU really sucked me in ... I played and finished it three times which is rare for me.

Yeah, I just finished it and I'm kind of torn about it. It had some interesting levels and mechanics, and a really weird sensibility to it, but that weirdness didn't always work. And I found the game to be aggressively unfunny, like a horrible stand-up comic constantly bombing on stage.

I agree that other designers could take away some cool ideas from it, though.

I've been jumping between Grid 2 (really enjoying online play even with the cluster **** which is called the first 3 turns) and just started Dragon's Crown.  Pretty close to finishing Grid 2, not sure if i'm gonna run through Dragon's Crown with every character though...

Hey Pen, I just tried my first online game today in GRID 2, it was pretty cool. Raced twice, placed 4th and 5th.

How do you "finish" GRID? Is there a final goal we're going for?

I would consider playing the single player (off line mode) to completion, would be enough to say you've completed the game. The game seems platinumable if you have the time.

No. I might have chuckled if I hadn't already endured 5-6 hours of "boner" and "hot boner" jokes prior to that, but such was not the case.

Finished Lone Survivor recently. Still not sure exactly what I think of that one. Psychological horror by way of an old LucasArts game is an odd combo.

Geez, if I finish up Dynasty Warriors 8 I might be fresh out of excuses to not pick up a PS4...

Finding some many great games in PS+.

I also played Don't Starve the last couple of days. Very interesting. Played with my son without knowing anything about it and we were hooked on it for a couple of hours.
So the whole point of the game is to survive more days. No other goal, levels, bosses, etc?

Two choices :

- The game is VERY scary

or

- You're too old to game if you can't control your bowels tongue.gif

I climbed in the window to Mt Massive, then immediately climbed back out and ran to my Jeep. That game is probably not for me.

Just finished Ni no Kuni. No Chance for Platinum too much of a grind.

FFXIII-3 Lightning Returns comes out today. I'll probably get 60 hours of of that, hopefully with a platinum.

My list hasn't changed much in four months:

Tekken Revolution
I think I'll take a break now, since I maxed out my stats and rankings, and go back to TTT2 until another character I like is released.

Pinball Arcade (PS4)
Love this game to pieces, and am closing in on top 100 leaderboard scores on a table or two.

Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker HD
I tried MGS3 HD first and hated the controls so much that I quit and watched a playthrough online instead. However I finished PW last night on Hard difficulty and it is a great title!

Killzone: Shadowfall
I took a break from the solo campaign, but will finish it now that I freed up some backlog.

inFamous SS will be started once I finish KZ:SF.

Los Angeles Lakers - 16 NBA Championships!

I'm finishing up Castlevania LOS 2. I bought Ni No Kuni on the ridiculous sale price a few weeks back, have yet to start it. Also need to finish Killzone SF. And Assassins Creed 4.

My god, I think the lat thing I actually finished was God of War Ascension! Having a toddler kills your game time...especially for non age appropriate titles.
