I decided to try that because I like Megurine Luka but holy crap, do I suck.

It's hard. After a bit of practice I managed to clear "weekender girl" on Normal difficulty, but the other two I am lucky to not get booted mid-song. Hopefully once my brain gets used to tracking the "notes" flying across the screen it will become easier. I will be buying this for sure, because a game in which I can dress Miku up in pretty outfits is really all I want out of life.

Sadly, nowhere near as many places to play now that I'm back home. Also nobody to roam around with = boring.

The Last Of Us
Image
Just finished it and wow...............I don't know which game I liked better this year so far, Bioshock Infinite or this. No non-video gamer can argue that video games aren't art with games like these two. The story in this game from start to finish will emotionally exhaust anyone with a heart, this game is a roller coaster ride of taking your emotions up and down. The character interactions is the best thing about it, mostly between Joel and Ellie but also the other characters in the game as well, this is a very human game from a realistic perspective. Gameplay was great aside from certain puzzles, graphics were boss, Gustavo Santaolalla was an excellent pick for the soundtrack, and the atmosphere was powerful. What I liked so much about this game which caught me off guard while playing it is that they took an already overused plot genre with already overused cliches from other medias but evolved it into something more original and credible breathing new life into the genre. I almost didn't pick up the game because I thought it was just another "zombie flick turned game" but I was pleasantly surprised. One thing I did like about this game over Bioshock Infinite is that there's a New Game + feature. But personally, what I seriously hated the most about this game is that almost every character drops G-bombs like they're trying to win the lottery. I know the world and almost everyone in it as went to hell but dude. Would recommend anyone to play this game whether you're a fan of genre or not, you don't have to cop it immediately if you're not a fan but I highly advise going for it when the price and the hype drops down. Either this game or Bioshock Infinite could get GOTY but I wouldn't be surprised (and moderately annoyed) if Grand Theft Auto 5 does. Maybe GTA5 will have an emotionally invested plot like the finale for GTA4, maybe not.

I agree. The Last of Us is definitely game of the year material. :up:

I'm playing MP3, I rented it when it first came out but I never finished it.

I heard about issues with that update, and it really sucks that it happened to your PS3.

However, a little bit of good news: I saw an article on Kotaku saying that they'll release a new update on Thursday, June 27 which will hopefully fix things, as well as steps to implement the solution.

That game was beautiful from start to finish. I found myself just standing around at certain vistas just to admire the view before going on. Upon completing this game, I decided to give Saints Row The Third another try, which I had stopped playing 2 hours in months back due to not being into sandbox games at the time, but this time, I could not get into it because it felt so juvenile after completing something as poignant as The Last Of Us.

Currently playing: Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn (Beta Version)

I am definitely going to pick this up after the adventures I had today. Sitting around talking to the people around me at a random pond I came across because I had to run away from a lvl 30 mob chasing me (me being only level 13, not the best idea to wander so far off) and suddenly a giant slug randomly spawns as part of the FATE system in the middle of the pond. We tentatively take to arms and battle it and it's offspring for the next fifteen minutes.

Yeah, I've heard. It's annoying that it wont be fixed till then, leaving me without my netflix to fall asleep to (well, not exactly, I'm making due with the browser version on my HTPC.) I was just wanting to check the store before bed to see if anything new had been posted for plus subscribers to DL and had to update to do it... Oh well.
