+Aion +Gameforge  +NCsoft 

So wife came home yesterday and asked me if I have ever heard of Aion.  I said no and we checked out their site.  Looks like an interesting game.  So we started the omg long download process and created accounts to play today.

Our experience on playing well I can't say see we were banned from playing.  Why?  The hell I don't know since our total amount of time in game was 0 minutes.  Unless they consider booting up their game to be a bannable offense which is the only thing we did before being told we were banned.

So great game guys.  Definitely one every one should check out.  Nothing like wasting three hours to download a game for it to ban your brand new account immediately because F U that's why.

Fail game is Fail.

So I picked up Telltale's new game The wolf among us.  

If you don't know about this game I recommend you go to their site (linked below).

Its based in the world of Fable.  A series I had seen before at Wizards but never picked up.  The premise is simple the creatures and people from our Fables are real.  They just live in different worlds.  Unfortunately, an evil force comes along and drives them out of their worlds and into ours.  So now they are in exile which means they have to work together.  This means the Big Bad Wolf has to play nice with the three pigs and red riding hood, and Jack can' t go around killing giants anymore.  

The game centers around Bigby (the bad wolf).  He's the sheriff of fabletown (a place called new york city).  His job is to keep the peace amongst the Fables; not an easy task from reading the comics (yes I picked the first one up because of this game).  

The game play is very similar to the Walking Dead from Telltale (if you don't know that game; the hell is wrong with you go buy it).  You are given several choices through out the game that affect the games story and how the fables react to you.  The art style is awesome.  It's vibrant and beautiful.  

They have currently only released Episode 1 but it was worth the 25 dollars and the wait for the next ones.

If 25 is a little to high for you waiting for steam sale is acceptable but I really do recommend you pick this game up.

Spec Ops The Line (Released June 2012).

I'm not a big FPS fan but I figured I would give this game a go because everyone kept going on and on about the story.

So let's get this blurb under the way.

The Good:

The game is pretty and the sand mechanics quite beautiful when you get to use them (which isn't really that often).  The story is interesting especially the little bits of intel you find on the way.  They give the story more fluff without being a must have to follow what is going on.  That is always a plus in my book.  You do have regen health but its understandable since let's face it med kits don't heal you and real bullets kill you in one hit (well typically).

The Bad:

The enemy AI is horrible;  I would often find a bad guy jumping back and forth over cover or just standing out in the open.  But don't worry the game balances this by giving you two AI partners who if they die you lose.  Guess what your AI partners do?  If you guessed jump back and forth over cover you would be correct.  There was one point in the game where my sniper companion Lugo decided we needed to move up.  Not only did he move up but he rounded the next corner and ran a mile down the corridor and found himself a lot of bullets.  I got to find a game over screen because I couldn't get to his dumb ass.  Another time I hopped on a turret just for Adams my heavy gunner to run in front of it as I opened fire.  The problem with this bad of AI; especially in squad mates who can end a mission if they die, is I stop paying attention to the story.  I don't know how many times I reloaded because either they ran out into the open and got gunned down or instead of giving me back up hung out in the rear with the gear while I fought 20 men.  When I'm yelling at my fellow squad mates to stop being useless turds I'm not really paying attention to your biting satire about the over glorification of war and combat.

The Ugly

I'm tired of games wanting to make the difficulty of an area harder by making soldiers who are suddenly super gods.  Not only does this game have heavys (well armored individuals in riot gear because apparently riot gear can protect you from grenades) but they have killzone wannabe soldiers(or fallout new vegas whatever).  I hate these types of mobs nothing pisses me off more than when I shoot a guy in the head and he shrugs it off like I was throwing pebbles at him.  It just takes me out of the moment.  Especially since the game really doesn't need this mechanic.  The game would have been just as hard and fun without these.

Another over used mob that drives me nuts is the melee guy.  You know the guy who brings a knife to gun fight and somehow can take 20 bullets and one shot kills you.  These guys should not exist and if you do use them they should be one shot kills where your protagonist makes fun of them.  

Verdict:

Overall if you like FPSs you probably have already played this.  If you don't like FPSs this isn't the game that is going to win you over.  The story is good but there are just to many spots that are frustrating and un-fun to make this game worth it.

So I picked up Dead Rising 2 and I would give an opinion but frankly I haven't given the game the time of day yet.

See a game I bought for $10 called #terraria ; updated their game.

And by update I mean revamped and made it more awesome than it already was.

Currently +Ben Simmons and I are placing teleporters all over the place.

This allows us to jump around the map like we are in a star trek movie.  Now I just need some red dye for my shirt that way I'm more accurate in the game.

Seriously if you haven't picked up Terraria I don't know what is wrong with you.  I have spent over 130 hours in this game.  That means this game has cost me .076 cents per hour.  To give a comparison it costs me 12 dollars to go to the movies.  That means for 2 hours I spent 6 dollars an hour on entertainment.  Which form of entertainment do you think gave me "more bang for my bucks?"
