Us Gamers
 
So, how many of us game here at gaters?

I just recently beat Gears of Wars 2 and have been hitting up the wingman multiplayer, and at a rather unhealthy dosage these past few days too... (I suck so bad at it. A lot more to it than other first-person shooters.)

What do you play?

Afflicted 11-15-2008 07:08 AM

Well Litch King just came out. Pack that along with Mirror's Edge, Fallout 3, Little Big Planet, Left 4 Dead, and Dead Space, I might just drop out of Uni.

Shivan 11-15-2008 07:13 AM

I started playing WoW on the first day, no joke. I go through phases where I will play it constantly then up and quit. Right now I'm in the latter phase so I haven't been able to purchase Lich King. I know it has to be excellent. I mean this is Blizzard we are discussing. I use to be HUGE into Starcraft. I can still go back to that game and have a blast. Looking forward to the sequel but I'm so impatient and Blizzard always announces things like 3 years before launch...it seems...

I'm also in the process of trying to afford Mirror's Edge (played the demo and loved it), Fallout 3, and Banjo Kazooie Nuts & Bolts.

I don't think Little Big Planet is worth the purchase of a PS3. (Although the Blu Ray player is... but I still know I can't afford it.)

I suppose I've started gaming more since I got the old PS3 and iPhone.
(though if you look at the shoutbox oftentimes I can't be arsed to make the effort to play).
Usually have a COD4 gaming night with friends every so often, bit of Resistance FOM, I'm waiting on my copy of Killzone 2 to come out in a million years.
Oftentimes I just throw in a Bluray since it's less effort :p.

The surprise has been the iPhone, use it to play more casual games than I did with the PSP... i.e. I actually do use it.

Charlie Carter 11-15-2008 12:56 PM

Mirror's Edge, CoD5, Fallout 3, Fable II, Wrath (haven't touched it yet, been working). Also, Left 4 Dead demo was hilarious.. the lads in the flat were screaming like girls.

Anubite34 11-15-2008 03:45 PM

Bought a WotLK collectors ed. Haven't installed it yet...too busy doing old skool achievements!

Also have Guitar Hero:World Tour that I'm chipping away on. Refuse to touch Left4Dead - I'm a girly girl and hate horror survival games. Basically Valve made an entire game out of Ravenholme from HL2 - pass.

With me just getting an e-mail saying they're enforcing unpaid leave over the week of Thanksgiving, I guess I'll be playing more games very soon. :/

president doc 11-15-2008 04:29 PM

Just downloading End War demo off the US Playstation Network now.


Just so you guys know.

Shivan 11-15-2008 07:19 PM

I'm REALLY looking forward to the new Prince of Persia, anyone seen videos for it? Looks amazing.

LBP is fuckin' awesome, though.

Shivan 11-15-2008 10:19 PM

It just doesn't look all that great.............

Charlie Carter 11-15-2008 11:28 PM

Lies. Visually, it's gorgeous, and it's such fun. Sack Boy is so cute!
But in terms of value, LBP is the only game really going for the PS3.

president doc 11-15-2008 11:55 PM

pah, there loads that's worth it on the format, though at the moment I'm on a bit of a saving mode, bar preorders that are yet to be executed.

president doc 11-16-2008 12:13 AM

P.S lol from about 5 hours ago.

I was thinking ever since I heard about the game that I would love to play it but it was only on ps3.

It took at least a month to remember we had one:(

KC, I love you sometimes.

Also, doc: BWAHAHAHA. Shop fail.

president doc 11-16-2008 01:40 AM

Not shop, 360.

I believe the failure rate stands at over 50% now.

Looks shiny - I was at the Ubisoft launch party in SF the other night. Didn't really do much beyond drink their alcohol and got seriously fucked up. :)

Work function? Work functions are great that way.
As far as gaming goes, I'm still having fun w/ Oblivion w/SI/KOTN, replaying with different classes is always fun. I've got a friend who insists I should smoke some WoW with him but I fuck ass about enough already. I don't need any more reason to not work.

taz 11-17-2008 12:30 AM

I am back playing The Sims (now on Apartment Life). Was playing Oblivion but haven't bothered finishing it (for the second time with SI etc) as got a bit bored. I'll probably go back to it when my boyf stops complaining about me hogging the tv all the time...

I'm not really into multiplayer games but would anyone here be interested in maybe getting a few small games of Enemy Territory 1 going? It's free...

Bose 11-17-2008 01:01 AM

I'd play war games but the flashbacks are just too much.

soulblade64 11-17-2008 10:10 AM

Bought an xbox 360 3 weeks ago (2 weeks before the fucking price drop!)... Got gears of war 1 today... I freaking LOVE IT!

Afflicted 11-17-2008 10:13 AM

If you bought it less than a month ago, return it.

Kamikaze Casper 11-17-2008 11:07 AM

Yeah, back up everything to a memory card and return the thing!

Kamikaze Casper 11-17-2008 02:55 PM

*drool* and I don't like FPS

president doc 11-17-2008 05:05 PM

Yup, that's from the beta which isn't as good as the finished product... apparently.

Either way it'll be nice to finally reach the pinnacle of the next gen three and a half years after I started getting a woody over the game.

Shivan 11-17-2008 05:24 PM

I've had my Xbox 360 for about a year, bought it used from my cousin, and I've never once had an error...

Charlie Carter 11-17-2008 05:26 PM

Don't think Ristle (my mate) has ever had an issue with his 'box either. But tbh that's debatable with the new update coming Wednesday. I predict much woe for all.

president doc 11-17-2008 06:07 PM

Well hey, 50% failure rate means 50% not failed yet right?

Shivan 11-17-2008 06:10 PM

What is happening Wednesday?

president doc 11-17-2008 06:31 PM

um... the middle of the week? :oh:

Kamikaze Casper 11-17-2008 06:45 PM

There's an update coming out...she just said that.

Also, you've jinxed it now. Your x-box's fucked.

Shivan 11-17-2008 06:50 PM

Nope, my X-box is resilient.

I predicted woe and despair for all! How is that a jinx?!

The update is the new X-Box Live home hub thing that's basically a rip-off from PS3 and Wii.. you get to make your on little avatar type thing, basically a Mii. Still, we'll see, I guess.

president doc 11-17-2008 07:50 PM

But lets get back to the important stuff, which is Killzone 2 and how awesome it will be.

I wonder if they'll ever bother coming out with Home. if it's a semless way to do the whole online gaming thing plus some Playstation Store thrown in along with the tie-in to online music/movies it'll be worth a look.

Charlie Carter 11-17-2008 09:56 PM

Home is gonna cost money and be compulsory, though. Bad times.

president doc 11-17-2008 10:26 PM

Uh... what?

Why would home cost money?
I also doubt it will be compulsory (as in a compulsory interface)... Unless you have hard info otherwise.

Bose 11-17-2008 11:05 PM

I honestly don't know what everyone's been talking about the past few pages.

president doc 11-17-2008 11:23 PM

Oranges.

Bose 11-17-2008 11:33 PM

It all makes sense now!
