Path of Exile
7.5 / 10
I hope alright to rate a game I am currently playing
Biggest pro is that it is free but has good graphics as well.
Processor can handle fine but I have a pretty kick ass desktop system.
Biggest con is that there is a dialog between players screen selling stuff which you cannot shut off.

Injustice: Gods Among Us
As a game- 4/10. As a DC animated movie -6/10
I played it because the tie in comic is just incredible. It gives at least a hand wavy reason Batman and Superman can slug it out without Batman becoming paste.
All the characters control in a very samey way though. Theres no real reason to pick one over another except that you may prefer how their attacks are animated.
The game has tons of extras but the core mechanic is just very weak and shallow.
I say if you like comics and you can pick this up in a bargain bin then its worth it so you can read the tie ins.

Dark Souls 2
8/10

One of the best games I've ever played unfortunately marred by a few problems and design faults.

X-COM The Enemy Within, for Android
10/10

This Android port of the console game is flawless.  I actually like the UI better on my phone than on my PS3.  I have had the tiniest of technical glitches (one crash to date) - also better than on the PS3.

Killer on battery, but that is not unexpected.  And maybe for the best, for otherwise I'd likely waste my whole life on it.

Would not recommend for a screen much smaller than mine (Samsung Note 2).

Fallout: New Vegas

8.5/10

I always like the open world feel, and it's got a lot of good story lines.  It does force you to make decisions about who you join, greatly increasing the playability.  Typically, I don't like shooting things in games, but I like the gun mechanics in this one.  I haven't finished it, but I've certainly put a lot of time into my first run through.


Totally agree, I put a lot of hours into it and many playthroughs. The only slight annoyance were the occasional "you've failed such -and-such quest" when a choice was made which ruled out a particular storyline which I found a bit immersion breaking. Apart from that I loved that choices had consequences.  Assuming you're playing on a PC I highly recommend modding it, which is very easy thanks to the Nexus mod manager ( http://www.nexusmods.com/newvegas/ ), there's some great game mechanic improvements like a better pip boy, quests and textures.

Duke Nukem Forever: 3/10. I didn't actually finish it it's so bad, the humour fails completely, the environment looks as if it was made in 2004 and the combat is mundane. It's a standard on the rails FPS set in narrow environments and it must have taken a lot of effort to make something so simple so poor.

Limbo, 9/10.

If someone tells you videogames aren't art, sit them down in front of this one.

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, 9/10.

The best Assassin's Creed game by far.

Exact same game and rating I'd give it :)

I like the commentary on the whole lord of the rings story and the themes of Tolkien that the game has. It simultaneously says "maybe we should use the tools of the enemy against him after all", and "you know, the player character is invading the orcs' home to slaughter them by the hundreds and terrorize and destabilize their society"

Yeah, I found that aspect of it really good. That rating I gave it? That was before I even finished the game. Since then I've grown to respect it and the people who made it even more.

See, a lot of people cry about how it's raping the lore and it's made by people just looking to cash in on the popularity of LotR without really knowing much about it, etc., and initially I thought pretty much the same thing (but didn't mind much because hey, it's a flipping video game, who cares). After playing through the game twice, I've revised my opinion. Yes, it's lore rape, but it's very deliberate, well-thought-out lore rape made by people who know a huge amount about Tolkien's world and are perfectly aware of what exactly they're doing to it. This is exactly what derivative works and tie-ins and such should be, IMO. It's respectful without being slavish, it explores the same themes and issues as the original work but does so from its own angle.

So yeah, this game is basically Spec Ops: The Line in fantasy land. You think you're playing a hero but you're actually not.
