I haven't played shadow complex yet, but i was really looking forward to it. Why didn't you like it?


Well it really isn't a bad game at all. But it's pretty easy even on hard, and the environments are really bland. I mean, it's still a fun game, but I wouldn't go as far as to compare it to Super Metroid of Symphony of the Night like so many reviews etc. have. I liked it enough to play it twice but I wouldn't say it was very memorable.

You actually liked Boaderlands? No love for Uncharted?

I loved Borderlands. It reminds me of Diablo meets FPS. I've only played the first Uncharted but I don't think that it is as deserving as the other games that I mentioned.

No real departure from the major GOTY lists for me. It's Uncharted 2, easily. But I didn't play a ton of new games this year, I rarely ever do.

My non-2009 GOTY was Fallout 3. I spent months playing it. So awesome.

I loved borderlands too- my only gripe was that it felt too short and the world was too small. I wanted more people populating the shitholes that ned was in. I wanted more unique areas to explore. What they did within the game- they nailed. I think if they don't change much of the gameplay and make the world bigger for the sequel, It'll be one of my favorite games of all time.

We are on the edge of an FPS MMO and i'm really excited about that.

ok- so mine would be...

Biggest disappointments:
F.E.A.R 1 ugh. Bad AI, Weird walk cycle, I was often lost in the level. Just bad design. 2 looks ok.
Brutal legend - not a bad game, but not a great game. I expected better.
IronMan - loved the movie, and demo. Actually got the game and it was painful. The bright shining points of it where you are fighting armies are overshadowed by the stupid cut scenes and arbitrary tasks.
Assassin's Creed 1 - just.... boring. Pretty, but boring
The conduit - such high hopes. I thought it would start the cry for hardcore wii games. It didn't.
Fracture- so much potential, but small hills don't make good cover.

GOTY for 09...
I can't really pick one? I wasn't really overcome with joy at any one game.
Borderlands, Dragon age, Batman AA, MW2 were all fun games but with faults for sure.

OH FUCK- i know.... dead space extraction for the wii. I'm a big fan of arcade light gun games, and dead space does everything right. Mood, Power ups. Ammo. Enemies. Fuck i love this game. I know it wasn't even a blip on a lot of radars, but it is totally worth checking out. You can play it multiplayer, but it was really made for one person.


Retro GOTY...

Sweet Home- Totally under my radar. Totally worth checking out. Once you master the subtleties of it like any nes stuff (things you are supposed to figure out via trial and error) the game opens up. Really sprawling for a nes game.

Burnout Paradise - opened up the world of arcade racers to me after being out of them for so so long. Makes me look forward to more burnout games, and the upcoming blur. Not only that, but i started to check out regular racing titles because of burnout. Nothing grabbed me yet, but at least I'm open to them.

Rainbow Six Vegas 2 tactical shooting at it's best. Accept no substitute. So much customization. After playing a shit ton of call of duty- squad control and blind fire were mechanics that gave me a breath of fresh air. Still need to finish it. The problem with how tactical it is, is that after i spend too much time away, it is harder to get back in. It is something i need to spend a week enjoying.
