What Video Game Are You Currently Playing?

Recommended Posts

@Optimus SW's ancient/natural levels are some of the nicest looking and atmospheric maps in BUILD games. Too bad almost everything in the gameplay department suffers.

F.E.A.R. is an amazing game, and one of the best FPS games I've ever played. Extraction Point is a good expansion too. Perseus Mandate not so much, plus I got tired of F.E.A.R. 1 by that point. F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin is a good sequel though, if losing some of the oomph factor that the original had. Call of F.3.A.R.: Paranormal Ops is hot garbage and I'd recommend against playing it.

I like FEAR1 too, sequel is a bit different, but not bad, but Fear3 - this is how to destroy good series.

Just like other games like Command & Conquer 4, Empire Earth 3, Destroy All Humans: Path of the Furon, Bubsy 3D, Ultima IX, and others as well. All terrible games that killed off otherwise decent series of games. Except maybe Bubsy.

Oh and HOMM after HOMM 3/4

But I like Diablo 3 even it's different than D1 (my favorite).

I just finished playing through Guardians of the Hood. I quite enjoyed it, even though it's pretty bad.

Replaying Dungeon Keeper for the first time in many years. It's fun but I had forgotten how zoomed in the camera was.

Into The Breach is like a really depressing Advance Wars with time travel. I'm addicted.

I got to the level 'Obelisk of Khamoon' in Tomb Raider, and my god, what a bullshit level it is. It's confusing as all hell, it has a lot of places where you can (easily) fall to your death, and backtracking means redoing platforming sections! JOY! Long story short, the level took all of my patience and crushed it. I actually physically hurt my hand because I punched my desk in sheer frustration, and since I care about my mental sanity I decided to stop playing the game altogether.

Aww, that was one of my favorite levels!

Frankly, I thought the Egypt levels in Anniversary were bullshit because of the prolific traps lining the halls.

The real shame is you'll miss Sanctuary of the Scion immediately after, which, in my opinion, is the best level of TR1. Period.

The one after that was okay, somewhat forgettable, but memorable, too because you lost your gear and had to get it back.

The next one, Atlantis, if you thought Obelisk of Khamoon was bullshit, Atlantis takes everything it's got and turns it up to eleven.

The last one was fun, but also hard as shit and had two boss fights.

Heh, shows you how subjective opinions can be.

 

As for the other levels... I might keep playing at some point, but certainly not now (I was still really pissed off when I wrote that).

Here's a helpful guide for Obelisk of Khamoon.

Spoilered because it's a video.

Spoiler

 

This guy basically does max runs of all the levels, but this should help you get through the entire level in one trip.

I'd also recommend checking out the Atlantis video at least because that one's almost absurdly difficult. And really long. Save often.

I'm playing John Romero's bitch Daikatana. Sucked it down once, now I'm doing it twice. While watching the hilarious SA let's play, which is more fun than the game itself.

Other than Doom, I'm currently playing Oblivion (for the first time), Legend of Grimrock (for the first time), and Skyrim (for the second time).

I tried playing Dungeon Keeper a few years ago on Dos and hated it. I played through Dungeon Keeper with KeeperFX about half a year ago and had a glowing experience. It's amazing just how much better it is when you play it with KeeperFX. I wouldn't play it any other way.

Nearing my fourth completion of Carmageddon Max Pack (the base game portion) but this time having made all the non-stealworthy vehicles stealworthy (using the IWANTTOFIDDLE cheat).

I may have a problem.

Playing Red Faction on the PS4. It was less than $2 on the Playstation Store. Bloons TD 5, also on PS4. Rocket League, as well. But I must be a sucker for pain because 95% of people I play against on RL are fucking assholes without provocation. Like, what gives? Seriously?

So what do you know, I actually finished Tomb Raider. It's an ok game, but it feels like a product of its time, at least for me. I also played Unfinished Business and... it's ok as well :P @Aquila Chrysaetos Atlantis wasn't that bad IMO, since it was fairly linear. Besides, the Uzis made combat really trivial for the most part (that and the fact that I was probably used to dying 5 times per minute by that point). The level actually freaked me out at first lol, wasn't expecting that kind of atmosphere at all.

 

I'm playing Tomb Raider 2 now, and it's been more interesting than the first game so far, with more varied environments and slightly improved graphics. I did get lost towards the end of the second level, though, and I had to look up a walkthrough (and I realized that I had missed the automatic pistols in the first half of the map!!). Did I mention that I didn't know how to leave the damn boats? I had to look that up as well, it's ridiculously counterintuitive. Also, I'm really amused by Lara's ponytail. The fact that they made a dedicated physics system just for that is ridiculous and awesome at the same time.

Atlantis was the worst to me because I remember falling from the highest platforms and because I always do no-save runs I have to do all that over again. It was linear, yes, but it's just a total dickbag level because of all its traps and falls and monsters and it's my favorite because of it all.

TR2 was great, I've confidence you'll like it, but if you go on to 3, I'm not sure if you'll like it or not, since that one has a love/hate relationship in the fandom.

TR3 is also ridiculously hard, which is probably part of the love/hate reputation it has.
