@Windstar

Really? I actually love the 8bit minigames. And I hate minigames.

I mean the games in their own respect aren't bad. The pipe one blew my mind the first time I did it. But I didn't grow up with nes, so I really don't like looking at those dull graphics and I can't really truly enjoy simple games anymore where you're more-or-less playing for a high score. Like Tetris or Galaga or something.

If they did the pixely graphics thing again, I'd wanna see improved visuals for sure. Something more colorful, more detailed, and more depth to the games. I'm spoiled!

Beat Far Cry 3 tonight. Amazing game. The ending was kinda poopy, disappointed me. Overall fun single player but the multiplayer feels thrown together, kinda like Bioshock 2.

I think I'm at the final boss. Though I sprained my wrist swordturbating I think. So I probably can't play for a few days :c

Been Playing Persona 4 Golden, and I was surprised at how much I'm enjoying this game, the Turn based gameplay is cool and the story is great.

Bet that was a tricky one to explain to the parents.. :/

Anywaays, been playing lots of NSMBU recently. Finally got Mum & Dad to play it! The idea of the Gamepad being able to change stuff on the TV still scares my mother slightly, but hey :P
Also still on Mighty Switch Force HD. Man, this game is so hard >.>

I wanna play that so hard.

Anyhoo, Arkham City arrived today so I've been playing that and keeping my wrist in one piece. This game is actually really hard to get used to and a lot to take in at once. The screen is really close to Batman, the camera took me a while to get used, using weapons took me a while to get too, then looking back and forth between screens but I think I'm somewhat getting the hang of it finally.

It feels like Batman's weapons really aren't ideal for quick combat. You're usually fighting huge mobs of bad guys who are pounding you left and right and it doesn't seem possible to even consider using a weapon. And there's no lock-on feature (that I know of) so you're probably not going to hit them anyway. Also as cool as the fighting is to watch, it does feel a bit like you're just mashing buttons while Batman is leaping halfway across the screen at enemies, twisting elbows, dodging baseball bats, doing acrobatic kicks, punching necks, bashing heads together, catching punches from behind him without even turning around, and just generally beating the living mess out of everyone without even breaking a sweat. Like goddamn, what martial arts did this guy take?

The stealth fights are pretty fun though. Incredibly hard though if all the enemies are pretty close to one another and it's hard to separate one from the rest.

I love AC!

And Batman nows every single martial art. The stealth is definitely my favorite stuff in the game, gameplay wise. The gadgets are pretty fun too and the combat gets better once you get it, using all those cool toys to keep the combo going. Too bad the boss fights are pretty meh.

Yeah I'm not so good with fighting yet. I can't even get an 8x combo to use his special moves :c

Also the overworld gameplay is really fun. I really like just gliding around and swinging to faraway buidings.

There's is indeed no lock-on feature but the free-flow™ combat works really well. As for using items during combat, I don't use 'em. lol
I think I only used batarangs (minimal). Its all about the brawlin and countering. ;)

Beat Nier. Had a really good time with it. I can understand why some people wouldn't be able to get into the action, but I definitely did. I loved the soundtrack and story.

It's definitely way more efficient but I've been trying to use the weapons in battle just so it feels like it has more variety. But then I end up dead a lot.

Right now I'm on a mission where I'm supposed to be following a blood trail to find this ninja assassin girl but I have no idea where it is now so I've just been doing Riddler missions finding the Titan chemicals for Bane. I like that they included notable bad guys for the side missions.

Learn how to use the grappling hook during combat! it is badass. Actually, I should return to the game and get the last trophies left.
