What Are You Playing Right Now?
I think i'm going to trade in shadow of mordor for the evil within. i don't see what the reviewers and practically everyone else sees. It's a dull bland looking game with no story to pull me in. The combat is fine but i'd rather play Batman. Every area is the same orcs, literally sometimes, to kill the same way and i'm just not understanding what i'm missing for people to call it their game of the year. Some games i don't like i give credit for production value but i don't see it here what am i missing?

(Apologies for the terrible grammar and typo's, I'm using my phone)

That's the kind of game Shadow of Mordor always looked like. Some interesting ideas that were going to be a bit gimmicky in this first instalment, which could be polished up for a sequel if the game was successful enough, and base mechanics that were going to be pretty solid after WB's QA were finished with it. It was only after people started playing it at E3 and the other expos that it suddenly jumped to the centre of the radar for a lot of people, which was quite a surprise.

(I also typed that on my phone, out of fairness)

Frosty, this might be worth a read. John makes it very clear what he loves about the game.

Thanks for that Benny. Makes a good read. I sent Frosty a PSN message asking him what he thinks of the game not realising he had posted above saying he thought it etc.

Still undecided on getting it. Think i'll wait, loads coming in the future that I want. Need to pick a racer, will try Drive Club of course.

Very good read. I'll be honest he's selling me the game and yet with all the excitement he's getting out of the it, I just wasn't feeling immersed in it.

I only got the game to see what the hype was about. The excellent reviews it was getting and the endless gameplay in the videos wasn't really pulling me in from the start and I was apprehensive of my purchase, so the game was going to have to fight to keep my attention.

So maybe I'm not the person to listen to regarding getting this game (or not getting it). I have backed up my save data and if somewhere down the line I see it half price and I'm on the look out for something on a rainy day, I'll consider nabbing it again. As it stands though, Gamestop will give me back full price (in store credit) since I only got the game on Friday, so I'll use that against The Evil Within or Lords of the Fallen at the end of the month.

I finally mustered up the enthusiasm to go back and finish off Watchdogs. I was about half way through the campaign when I went back but I skipped over all the side quests and in a matter of hours I'd completed it and deleted it from my HDD. It was ok. Not the worst game I've ever played but it wasn't an enjoyable experience either.

Then I fired up the re-released Sleeping Dogs for PS4 and because I jumped into it back to back with Watch Dogs, Sleeping Dogs shone all the more. I never finished that game on the PS3, though I reckon I wasn't too far off. But starting over again isn't a problem because what Sleeping Dogs does better than Watch Dogs is that it tries to have fun.

I've my refunded store credit from Shadow of Mordor to fund The Evil Within or Lords of the Fallen (pending review scores), so right now I'm snowed under with games and next month isn't helping much with Farcry 4 and Dragon Age Inquisition both releasing on the same day. I will be getting both day one I hope, we'll have to see how the funds hold up by then.

A friend bought me FFXIII on Steam. It's terrible.

Shadow Of Mordor, I didn't buy it but I'm having fun with it. Yeah the story is like non-existent or I don't really care for it, I just want to go kill orcs and stuff.

So yeah the Evil Within was not for me so I traded that and Rayman and got Drivecub which is great fun and Shadows Of Mordor for £50, bargain

I just didn't like The Evil Within it was not for me sadly.

So I figured out a fix for what makes FFXIII, like most Square ports to Steam, so shitty. It's actually getting fun now, but LMAO at the whole Xbox 360 made the game worse. Four years later and Square still can't get this game right.
