Whatcha Playin?

Recommended Posts

RG, no Halo games dont have much (possibly any) cussing. Although the games are definately about shooting aliens they are also Microsofts flagship Xbox games so they have tried to cast a pretty wide net for the audience. If you going to get an 11 year old an FPS then I would say Halo over COD. I picked up COD Black Ops for Christmas and was disappointed in it, its not nearly as good as Modern Warfare 2.

Ive been playing Dance Central with the Kinect and LOVE IT. Ive been dancing my ass off and I must say Im getting pretty damn good at some of these moves. I can beat about 3/4 of the songs on hard. A little more practice and Ill be ready to hit the clubs.

LOL my daughter got that too and I have been "working" on my dance grove as well!

On Halo can you play multi-players offline? Like I have 3 kids can they all play at once? I know I am a bad parent but thats a great babysitter when I am trying to get other stuff done..

We start ball season late February and the games go away then, theres just not enough time to keep em focused on school and baseball / softball with the video games around..

Older Halo games all had offline Coop play (Halo 3) but Im not sure about the newer ones (ODST and Reach).

Tie Fighter. Now that's an old, but AWESOME game! That might still be at my parents' house in my closet!

so you're saying it's time to come out of the closet?

^You might get it to work but the graphics will likely look like crap on a newer machine. I tried to get a couple of those old Star Wars games working a couple of years ago and it wasn't pretty.

I suspect that if you set the display setting to match common settings back then and it shouldn't look any worse than original, however disappointing compared to current graphics.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Now y'all have my retro nerve itching with curiosity. With the lack of a joystick for Tie Fighter, I may hunt down Diablo first.

I was always more of an X-Wing guy. We didn't get our first PC until my high school years, and I wasted weeks playing that. Knights of the Old Republic was a killer game more recently, I nearly failed grad school classes staying up all night to play that.

I got Mario Super Sluggers for the Wii for Xmas. I'll try to play it this week while my wife is away to kill time.

Check on newegg.com, you can pick up a good joystiq for pretty cheap. I bought one to play some old flight simulators a while back.

I was always more of a Wing Commander fan. I did enjoy the X-wing and Tie Fighter games though.

mr snick is playing the new starcraft 2 (PC), he does the online multiplayer thing.

I've been passing the time with that game as well. It's really addicting!

he plays alot too but overall though he is said he was disppointed...the 2 yr delay from original release date didn't live up to all the hypp for him. also he is more a defense player which doesn't work well in the new game.

I got Red Steel 2 for the Wii at the Library. Pretty sweet game and the graphics are okay.

The controls are rigid and require hard swings, which caused a lot of tangled controlers.

Planning on getting Metriod next, Wii shooters are kinda addicting.

Been playing Runescape too, its kinda slow paced but still a halfway fun MMORPG thats free.

I can see that.

There are a few defense maps online though. Some are pretty fun.

Anyone remember Star Fox? Bad ass graphics in the SNES days.

Star fox ruled in its day! my brother and i played a futuristic police helicopter game on the PS1 until we wore it out. i wish i could remember the name of it. Bushido Blade for the PS1 was pretty cool too.

I generally play Super Mario Wii and Wii Sports. During the winter months, I'll actually do some Wii Fit. I just got myself Epic Mickey for the Wii. Wii shall see how that one is when it arrives sometime tomorrow. I'll be single parenting it this weekend, so I should get some time to play with my Wii.

Strictly happens when she is napping or in bed already.

I'm a little dissappointed that it took until this morning for someone to jump on that remark.

Fallout: New Vegas and Assassin's Creed II, both on PS3, have been my active games lately. Kind of want to get back in to L4D2 on PC, just too busy to be able to sit down and play for a couple hours at a time these days though.

I'm in the midst of a condensed winter class and had to listen to a practice run of a talk my wife is giving tomorrow. I know, I'm full of excuses, but I freely admit I'm a tad off my game lately.

I picked up Assassins Creed:Brotherhood. Ive spent most of my time playing the multiplayer. Its disturbing how much fun it is stalking your friends and then assassinating them. I loved the L4D games too. Great fun there. One of the best zombie games to date.

Im having a hard time finding a racing game for the PS3 that 3-4 of us can play in the same room. they all appear to be single player with online multiplayer. anybody know of one that splits the screen for multiplayers in the same room?

try "Blur". It hosts up to a 4 player splitscreen.

I got Goldeneye 007 for the Wii for Xmas, hoping to relive some the N64 glory days. Turns out that the controls are harder than Chinese arithmetic, so I don't see myself playing it very much. I'm hugely disappointed. That's the reason I don't play new games very often. I'm not good with the keyboard/mouse combo on complex PC games, and the Wii with nunchuk/classic controller has way too many effin' buttons.

I got GoldenEye for wii a few weeks ago (early Christmas present to myself) and I found the controls pretty straightforward. I bought the game with the classic controller, but I found I like using the Wii remote & nunchuck configuration a lot better.

I thought the game was pretty good, although I'm pretty terrible at the multiplayer (online) mode. I don't know that I've ever played an online first person shooter before, and thus I am no good against real people. The last multiplayer first person shooter I played is quite possibly the original N64 Goldeneye. Needless to say, I get killed pretty quickly if I try playing online. :(

Hey guys, I'm interested in learning more about this game. When we were younger, my buddies and I played alot of N64 Goldeneye. Now we are grown up and more mature, and we still play games, mostly Mario Kart online. Is the new Goldeneye game for Wii similar to Mario Kart in that you can play amongst your friends online in a private room? Or is the online play limited to being thrown in with a bunch of people that you don't know, which would most likely whack me in a few seconds?

I just started the multiplayer for ACB, and I think it sucks. The points system is flawed, and just walking next to someone and stabbing them is well, pretty lame. I can understand it being more fun to piss off your friends when playing with them, but the regular online multiplayer, well, I would have expected more. Even more so when free running and the aspects that made the game such a success are detrimental points and notoriety-wise.
