What Game Are You Currently Playing?

Recommended Posts

Fallout: New Vegas. Never have I played a more glitch filled mess. I was not able to enter a single building in Goodspring. Every time that I did try, the game froze. Annoying as fuck. I am ready to return the damn game.

A buddy of mine got it and said it has some really good aspects and ideas to it, but it's was just put together half-assed.

 

EDIT: Anyone getting Crysis 2 tomorrow? Looks badass. I'm def. picking it up.

Nintendo 3DS Battery Is Quick To Die and Slow To Charge

 

An anonymous reader writes with this excerpt from the Opposable Thumbs blog:

"The battery in the Nintendo 3DS is as bad as we had feared, and it's a major impediment to enjoying the system. ... With the screen at a reasonable brightness, 3D and wireless turned off when the game allowed it, and no sound, we were about to get to a little over 4.5 hours of playtime. If you like a brighter screen, keep 3D turned on, or if you have that speaker going, that time is only going to go down. ... Using the cradle whenever the system isn't being played is a habit you're going to want to pick up, especially with a charging time of around three and a half hours."

I played it yesterday at a friend's house. Ran through a little bit of the Campaign but didn't have time to try out Multiplayer. From the little I played, it was a lot of fun.. but he told me that it's really short. He beat it in the first day.. and that he prefers Black Ops Multiplayer. From what he was describing, it sounded like a combination between Black Ops and Battlefield. But he sold me on his opinion when he said it'd be better to just wait for it to go used.. then get it.. which by that time, I'll be too pumped for the new Battlefield.

Capcom said today it will release Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil Code: Veronica X as downloadable titles on Xbox Live and PlayStation Network this Fall.

 

Both titles are receiving high-definition "upgraded visuals" as well as Trophy and Achievement support. Resident Evil 4 will have all the bonus contain from the previous RE4 releases, including the Separate Ways epilogue.

 

This packaged was announced earlier this week in Japan as Resident Evil: Revival Selection.

Editor's Note: The first page is spoiler-free. You will be warned before major spoilers occur.

 

The first time I encountered Admiral Hackett in Mass Effect I thought he was sort of a douche. He demanded that I assist the Alliance with matters that nobody else in the Navy could deal with (which I find hard to believe) and then when my Shepard performed above and beyond, all I received was a "Good work, Shepard." I always got the impression that he never meant it either.

 

Anyway, he's back to ask your for help one more time despite the fact that Shepard's working with Cerberus now. If you're a PlayStation 3 owner you won't be as familiar with Hackett and his charms as, until now, he was only a major presence in the first title.

 

So what does he want? Let's find out.

 

Give me the (spoiler-free) general gist of the story.

You got it. Admiral Hackett rings you up once again, but this time for a personal favor. A friend of his, Dr. Amanda Kenson, has been captured by Batarians and accused of terrorism. Hackett urges discretion, so he requests that you go in solo (really, no squad mates).

 

You might want to tell him to shove it, but then he says that Dr. Kenson reportedly found a Reaper artifact that proves their existence and plans to invade.

 

So yeah, you should probably go save her.

 

 

How does it play?

I only got to try out the first mission, but if you've played Mass Effect, this should feel incredibly familiar to you. There's lots of action in the first half of Arrival, and the major decisions that will impact Mass Effect 3 occur later.

 

I'm new/restarting the campaign, can I access Arrival from the start?

Arrival content unlocks after the mission on Horizon. Of course, you can always play it once you've completed the main campaign.

 

How long is it?

It's hard to say. I'm told that there are five new missions to play through and I only made it through the first one. It seems like you should be able to get a couple hours out of it, depending on how quickly you move through combat segments.

 

Lair of the Shadow Broker allowed you to rekindle your romance with Liara. Will Arrival offer the same for the Virmire Survivor (Ashley or Kaidan)?

Unfortunately, no. I'm sad about this, but I hope it means that Kaidan/Ashley's role in Mass Effect 3 is super awesome.

 

If you don't want to know any plot spoilers, don't go to the next page. If you don't mind learning about the events of the first mission, continue on.

 

 

What I said before remains true: you travel to Batarian space to rescue Dr. Kenson from a secret prison outpost. She's been charged with terrorism, and once you talk to her, she admits it. Turns out that she's been planning to destroy the Batarian relay to thwart the impending Reaper invasion, which is a good reason if you ask me. Her proof, a Reaper artifact, indicates that the sentient machines are on the move and are almost to the relay that connects with one in Batarian space. Destroying the Batarian relay means the Reapers would be forced to find another route and would prevent the attack.

 

Mass relays are huge, so how do you perform such a feat? Simple, just ram a giant asteroid into it. If you played the Bring Down the Sky DLC for Mass Effect 1 (a Batarian terrorist group tries to destroy the human colony of Terra Nova by hijacking an asteroid and ramming the planet) you'll see the irony here.

 

After busting her out of the Batarian prison, she'll escort Shepard to the asteroid she plans on using as a bomb.

 

mass-effect-2-arrival-20110318101243749_1300987715-000.jpg

See that countdown clock (above)? Well, when that hits zero (in two days!!) the Reapers will have accessed the closest mass relay to them and come to destroy, well, everything. I know, it freaked me out too.

 

Dr. Kenson escorts Shepard through the base and shows her true colors (and how stupid doctors can be). Smack dab in the middle of everything is the Reaper artifact. So despite her knowledge of the Reapers and their invasion, looks like they forgot about that pesky indoctrination thing. Whoops.

 

Now that Amanda and her team have Shepard cornered, they turn on the Commander and initiate a giant firefight. Their eyes also glow (almost like husks) and it's really creepy. You can survive for a while if you're a skilled Mass Effect player, but eventually you're going to get knocked out. Don't worry, that's by design (though staying alive for a certain amount of time will net you a Trophy/Achievement).

 

Shepard wakes up on a table (hmm, that seems familiar) surrounded by guards. They seem to be appalled that the sedative doesn't work on the Commander and Shepard punches out two of them while the third runs behind the safety of Plexiglas.

 

Have they done anything weird to Shepard while he/she was unconscious? Was Dr. Kenson telling the truth about the Reaper invasion? How much did Admiral Hackett know before he sent you into the situation? How are we going to stop the Reapers from killing everything with only 48 hours?!

 

Unfortunately, that's all I saw, so I don't have the answers. What do you think will happen next?

The Masters: Tiger Woods 12.

 

I actually love a lot of the new elements. I also (of course) hate almost as many.
