Sleeping Dogs (2012)

Went into this knowing very little. Just that it was an open world game set in Hong Kong. Turned out to be a fantastic game. Good story, solid combat and it's just fun to wander around the island. Definitely look forward to any sequels in the franchise.

Spec Ops: The Line (2012)

Like Sleeping Dogs I didn't know much about it before diving in. Just that it has a reputation for not glorifying war and making you question yourself. There's not much I can say about it other than that I do recommend it.

Help finish ROTJ: Revisited!

Just got Spec Ops: The Line as well. Haven't played it yet. I look forward to checking it out.

I mentioned to xhonzi that I was interested in getting The Bureau: Xcom Declassified and he pointed me towards Humble Bundle where you can get it for as little as a dollar.

I opted to spend a few dollars more to also get Spec Ops as well as the first 2 Bioshocks and a few other things.

all Hail xhonzi - his Bioshock ramblings paid off for once ;)

Been playing Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis a bit lately. It's pretty much the only Jurassic Park game I've played (apart from Trespasser) that I would recommend to a fan of the franchise to play (I have yet to play TellTale's game).

I found a mod called the "Genesis Expansion Project" on ModdingGenesis.com that seems to open the game up a bit. The vanilla version is not the most complex tycoon-style game, but the mod helps a bit in terms of graphics, AI, and general gameplay. It at least seems a bit deeper than it did before. It's a lot of fun. I did have a tornado whip right down my main drag before I'd put in a shelter and kill a lot of people and a couple dinosaurs, but we managed to recover from that.

Actually It's already begun apparently. According to Bungie they finished up all the maintenance stuff they had planned for yesterday / today so they've kicked it off early.

At first I was quite interested but now i'm a bit wary of what to expect.

I know one person who has Beta access so I might go around to his place after work and take a look.

Early tweets mention that you might have tears if you try to launch the beta before it's downloaded 100% so keep that in mind if any of you are planning to check it out.

I guess 5 days access is better than 4 when people have real life to deal with but with the game launching in a matter of weeks it feels more like a demo of sorts.

Our downloads failed a couple times, so we didn't get to play last night. Other friends got in after problems and played for a bit. One friend couldn't play on the same box after his wife had played. Either a bug or a beta restriction.

first off - I just replied to your PM

secondly, I recall Bungie stating one beta code per xbox.

since your household has 2 xboxes you should be okay. Otherwise it's probably just a case of everyone trying to get on at the same time?

I'm still downloadong it myself. shouldn't take too much longer I hope, seems to be going fine so far and i've paused and resumed a few times.

we'll have to try catch up during the weekend if things go smoothly.

one thing is for certain - Bungie could have made things more clear from the begining.

Destiny is pretty awesome, BTW. Half RPG, half FPS, it's more like having a persistent character you can take to all modes, and all modes are in-universe. Not as MMO as I expected, but other random people do show up in your overworld instances, but only your party can enter the instanced mission zones. We ran into a random overworld event last night, which reminded us it Guild Wars 2.

Eager to play again after work.

For folks that had been playing Star Wars: Assault Team, there was a pretty big update for it today. Cleaner UI, leagues in the arena, different crates, less energy to play missions, the ability to earn four gems per day, and probably some other things I'm forgetting. Good time to check it out.

Edit: Unless all your progress resets like mine just did. Ugh.

Well this is good news for anyone like me who after reading the behind the scenes info on the last Dragon age game and what happened behind the scene on ME3(He was the one who locked the writers out of the room and then was so rude to even the most polite fans who tried to offer advice on how to fix it. He also went on a crusade to have anyone banned from the bioware message boards who reported a bug. He had me banned from a the tech support site because I was posting updates on a bug that was crashing the game and asking them to fix it). Yes I know it says he choose to move on but that is corporate speak for he was given the choice to leave or be fired. After two years and most stores still not selling out their enitial shipments of ME3 I can't say I am surprised. Heck the average price of a copy of ME2 is still $20 while the average price of a copy of ME3 is $10. I think that says it all. Good riddance I say. This is a real victory for people who want writers to write scripts and who don't want to pay $80 for bug filled games that are never patched. This is the best news I have heard since Lucas not being involved in the new Star Wars movies.

I mean what kind of person has someone banned for reporting a game crashing bug to the tech support board.  I mean isn't that the point of that section of the forum and when a game cost $80 don't we have the right to report bugs and ask for them to be patched?

So it looks like some of you are playing Star Wars Assault Team, can you post what cards you have? would love to see what cards others favor, also I really, really would like to find a SpecForce Officer, does anyone at all know what levels to play to get one of these Hero cards to drop? it seems from the latest update Hero cards drop rate has dropped significantly.

Also is there any love here for Injustice Gods Among Us Mobile? lets see your top cards here as well, I personally cannot stop playing either of these lol, very fun and addictive.

Never mind, if you don't know then you don't play, I see some play SW Assault Team and was just sharing and would like to see what others have and what is your Team, and Injustice is also a game like this.

I'm still playing Assault Team, but unfortunately my progress got wiped so I'm basically starting over from the beginning.

Now that sucks! I worked my ass off to get all those Tier 5 cards lol, and then to actually get some of them to level 35, if I had to start over now I would not start over lol.

I should be okay now that I've tied it to my Facebook account. I was originally playing it on my Windows Phone, but that apparently doesn't have the capacity to connect to Facebook, so after the wipe, I switched to my Android tablet to continue. Progressing faster this time, but it sucks to know that I was getting to Tier 5 on my WP before I lost it.

There are actually quite a few odd differences between the WP version and the Android version. Very odd.
