Games I'm Working On This Year 2012
526 8.3 01. Mass Effect - Xbox 360
I know I'm a little late getting started on this one with the third just officially being released but better late than never. I actually stated this game a year or so ago and never went back, so now I'm starting from scratch and really enjoying it. I look forward to the other two installments.
22 7.6 02. Alan Wake American Nightmare - Xbox 360 Live Arcade
Being a huge fan of the first title this was a no brainer for me. While not exactly a sequel it's a fine way to pass the time with Alan until a follow up shows up.
At this point I've beaten the main a story and am aiming to get the last two achievements for the title. With only 12 one would find that to be rather easy but the last two are proving rather difficult with their emphasis being in the Fight Til Dawn mode.
151 7.2 03. The Darkness - Xbox 360
187 8.7 04. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Xbox 360
88 7.6 05. Beautiful Katamari - Xbox 360
I have truly mastered this game. It's great fun I just need one last achievement which is 100 hours playtime. It's just as horrible as it sounds. I'm not really trying to get it as I play this everyone once in a while for a few minutes understanding that one day it will pop and I will be satisfied.
549 7.5 06. Assassin's Creed - Xbox 360
For what seems like the hundredth time I'm late on this one too by a few years. Game is complete story wise and I'm done as well. I include this because I've played it this year and have no intention of ever going back. I didn't care for it all that much honestly. I could have been handled a lot better. I've heard great things about two and know I will I will enjoy it more. For now I am happy to have been introduced to the world but will continue forward with my head down.
167 7.9 07. L.A. Noire - Xbox 360
I don't care what many think of me in regards of this game, I love it. It's fantastic for what it is. Could it have been more? Sure, but that doesn't mean it's not great. I love detective fiction and film so this goes rather well with what I enjoy. It's a slow burn for sure but that's what makes it great. I can only hope for further advancement if a sequel ever occurs.
21 6.6 08. Splatterhouse - Xbox 360
Added this simply because I played it this year. While nothing special of a game it's also nothing horrible. It's cheesy and gory and that's you would expect so good for it. It also has ton of Lovecraft references so that's awesome. A fun way to kill a few hours. The last few levels kind of fell flat but its not bad by any means. I'm sure it's pretty cheap nowadays.
95 8.4 09. Dead Space 2 - Xbox 360
I love this game, it took everything from the original and perfected it. I've beat it twice, the reason I'm including it in the list is simply because I bought the add on this year on sale and finally played through it. While the experience with Severed was short it was still enjoyable. Not sure if I'm ever gonna head back to this one for the hard play-through achievements.
11 8.3 010. Costume Quest - Xbox 360 Live Arcade
173 8.8 011. Batman: Arkham City - Xbox 360
149 7.9 012. Fallout: New Vegas - Xbox 360
Play quite a bit of this and just stopped one day. Need to go back and actually beat it. I leveled all the way up way too quickly and then didn't have motivation if I wasn't getting xp for it. I really want to play the add on's but don't want to buy them. I might have to get a game of the year edition or whatever the hell it's called these days just so I can download those.
69 8.2 013. Deadly Premonition - Xbox 360
28 8.6 014. Catherine - Xbox 360
21 8.1 015. Beyond Good & Evil HD - Xbox 360 Live Arcade
52 8.2 016. Alice: Madness Returns - Xbox 360
Since this game comes with the first Alice I was making my way through that and randomly hit a snag. I will get back to that shortly.
I've finished the game and the original game as well and can't say anything but good things. The first game as a cool story but falls short due to design elements and it's obvious the game has been ported from PC. The game itself is still great, but is just a bit hard to control at times and you save at the wrong point so that every time you load the game you are immediately killed. The second game however is quite fun to look and the combat is quite wonderful. The story is a bit muddled at time and it really only holds one true boss fight which isn't all that difficult. The true fun of the game is the combat and the absurd amount of collectibles through out that will cause you multiple playthrouhttp://www.listal.com/help/htmlghs. It's about 20 now and should include the original game as well, worth the investment. By the way, it let's you keep mini games if they start to piss you off which is pretty cool actually, though they aren't that hard, if only Lollipop Chainsaw had the feature...I'm talking to you Chapter 2..I hate baseball now.
327 8.7 017. Mass Effect 2 - Xbox 360
Offically finished with the game and can say that is one of my all time favorites. The story is great and getting know you're squadmates is pretty amazing. Only bad thing about it would have to be the lackluster boss fight near the end, but other than that wonderful wonderful game.
3 5.5 018. Metro 2033 - Xbox 360
Not much to really say, I wanted to like the game so much, but I just couldn't. It was a great idea at times that fell short many times due to strange design choices or downright bad game play. Maybe the sequel will fix this but I have my doubts. Story has some cool moments, but those interested play with caution.
19 7.4 019. Stacking - Xbox 360 Live Arcade
19 7.7 020. Devil May Cry HD Collection - Xbox 360
146 8.6 021. Mass Effect 3 - Xbox 360 - Xbox 360
88 8.5 023. Limbo - Xbox 360 Live Arcade
The game is wonderful in every way, but I haven't gone back to it beat it, rather than actually play through blind I am trying to get the achievements along the way which is slowing me down and probably making it harder for me to actually finish it. Besides my own problems, play the damn game, it's wonderful and the atmosphere and kills are brutal. It's a beautiful to look at in every way and downright creepy.
28 7.1 024. Lollipop Chainsaw - Xbox 360
I really enjoyed the game for what it is, but felt the controls fell short a bit at times. I enjoyed fighting zombies for the most part, but the mini games flat out sucked at times and those really drag the experience down. I loved the writing though childish it was fun and helped the story along in a good way, it's just too bad that design choices knocked this down a notch.
39 6.9 025. 'Splosion Man - Xbox 360 Live Arcade
