Evening Reading

I'm in one of those funks where I can't seem to play a game for more than 5 minutes without getting restless and moving on to a different one. Anyone ever get that? I guess I need to play some Civ or something.

      I just bought killzone 2. Im about an hour into it and it's really not all that great. My weapons feel like they do no damage, it seems that im about a foot shorter than everyone else, and the environment is really bland. Hopefully it'll get better, but right now i don't understand how it got such great reviews.

        I'm going to do you a big favor: take your Demons Souls disc, take a shit on it, then set it on fire. Play Borderlands, no sense wasting your time on the other.

        Are you finishing up TQ on normal or legendary? I stalled out on both of my characters mid-way through legendary :(

        Maybe I'll start that up again.

        October 23, 2009 12:04 AM

        I just started getting into TQ-IT the other day. At first I hated it, but after installing the mod that let me zoom out, I'm really kind of digging it more than I expected. Just curious though, how long is the game? I've been playing for a while, and just got to Egypt. Percentage-wise, about how far through the game am I?

        • reply
          October 23, 2009 12:35 AM

          Hm, including the IT expansion, less than 50% maybe? FWIW, I always get bogged down in Egypt. Being the type of person that NEEDS to reveal the entire map, open every chest, kill every monster, and collect all the loot, Egypt just feels like an epic trudge through misery. But no more! I'm past Egypt on Legendary so screw you scarab mummy hyenas!

          I didn't think you needed to play the gba one for Tooie to make sense. I'm pretty sure it's just filler. I've only played through Tooie once but I don't remember any mention of the gba shit. Tooie is insane, btw.

            October 23, 2009 3:10 AM

            the gba one came out later, but it takes place between 1 and 2, so I wanted to sneak it in right quick. I recall it being a pretty darn fun game.
