Work is dominating my soul, plus all the other issues outside of work and gaming that I have to deal with make it hard to stay focused. I barely gamed at all last year in comparison to the norm for me. So I am hoping I can at least get some of that normalcy back that I lost. Although after last November, I think my life will never be quite normal again.
Hopefully something comes out that we are both getting and we just don't know it yet.
My taste in games has become more limited over time, hence why I don't achievement whore that much anymore. It's harder for me to find enjoyment in it. Only reason I pumped out 9k last month was because of the 4 monopoly games (which I would have played anyways) and doing some clean up on easy games.
For his first outing that guide is fucking impressive
Mass Effect has more linear exploration zones, but yes, all the games from these two trilogies play the same
Before DA:I launched, I went and played DA:O and DA2 again; they still hold up. Your main character has no voice in the first one (you choose their dialogue and the others respond as if they heard it), but this gives you a WEALTH of more options to choose from during conversation. At any given time, you usually have 5-8 responses you can choose from. ME1 doesn't hold up, but ME2 and ME3 are still incredible.
... wait, what? This is your first BioWare game!? Holy fuck, dude, you've just opened up a huge can of worms that you are going to CONSUME WITH YOUR SOUL! The first Dragon Age is better than DA:I, and DA2 is a great game, but not quite as good. Both are recommended from me, as is the Mass Effect trilogy. ME2 might be my favorite game ever. YOU NEED TO PLAY ALL OF THEM!
I'm sort of conflicted as to what my first game should be. I mean, I'll probably have finished all the games I want to on the 360 by June, when Arkham Knight rolls out. But on the other hand, the remaster of Dark Souls II releases in April. Do I want to continue the tradition with a Batman game being my first game, or do I want a game that represents how much I've changed as a gamer.
Yeah they screwed up the world records system on the 360. It worked for the award but it didn't give any rp. I just idled this one race over and over again and got to rank 100 in under a week from rank 87.
I want to play Mafia II but that 1000 miles achievements sounds horrid. I played Alpha Protocol (2010) in 2014 and I thought it was an awesome game, despite its issues. I played Fallout 3 (2008) in 2013 and thought it was fun despite some drawbacks.
I am saving my money so my dad and I can combo-pay for an Xbox One but money is tight and I wanted to use some money to clear up some of the clubs I wanted to do before I really moved all my financial efforts into the console.
