2013 in Gaming

For all video games that aren't about basketball.

2013 in Gaming

Postby benji on Thu Feb 07, 2013 10:20 am

Like the other threads this is focused on 2013 releases, especially for lesser or forgotten about titles that don't really warrant whole threads, for any generic blasts from the past there's still the awkwardly syntaxed "demise..." thread.

Aside from the NBA titles, I'm looking forward to Leisure Suit Larry Reloaded and GTA V, with South Park: The Stick of Truth on my radar as well.

the last of us has received quite a bit of press already. is that supposed to be a Heavy RAin type game where it's like an interactive movie or it is a bit more action oriented like uncharted?

I used to work at Gearbox, and the development of that game has been a total train wreck, going on what, 6 years now? Gearbox isn't even making the game, except for the multiplayer. Primary development was outsourced to TimeGate Studios, which has a less than stellar past.

Reminds me of that Looney Tunes cartoon of a singing frog

EDIT: Lol it was the same song.

That game seems to be quite the trainwreck. What a waste.

Sanctum 2: sooooo gooood, the bosses and resource limitation* and better gunplay are so hotttt even if it does change aspects of the game from the original, i like having them both as options now, especially since the better i got at preplanning and camping in the first the easier it got and the more i was standing around sniping weakpoints, now you have to be involved and aware of all the components of the battlefield...like playing medic in TF2...and i haven't even touched the non campaign modes
Super Sanctum TD: pretty good, having this up while doing other stuff like watchin videos or whatever has been kinda alright and i like how they replaced the missing FPS component of the series it's clever...even though i think this game may be more buggy and broken in some aspects than either of their full fledged 3D AAAA releases lol
Star Trek: alright, shadowgrin already knows the dissertation length elaboration that still boils down to this

don't want to fully review until farther in

*though i'm glad they eased this up a little and got rid of you having to go fetch them after each wave (although i also miss the resources slamming down onto the map, wouldn't mind a toggle that drops them NEAR you rather than back at the core), it hasn't exactly made the game too much easier but has given you a little more leeway over misallocating during one wave rather than being dead forever because you did, am glad i did my first boss fight with the old limitations before they patched though, that shit was cray...IIRC they added difficulty modes to the old game as well, didn't ship with them...
