    Did your brother beat the TMS boss? If yes, was it hard?

    He's been too busy with school and stuff, I will update you on what happens when he gets around to it. :)

    Okay he finally beat it a few days ago and sends his thanks

    6 days ago

    I may be a Nintendo fan, but Xbox 360 is one of my favourite consoles

    I might have ended last gen playing ps3 primarily but damn straight, 360 was a phenomenal console.

    on 21 August 2016

    Why? What's special about it for you?

    on 21 August 2016

    I cant comment on why Curl thinks that but for me, It was my first entry into online gaming and long story short, i made a bunch friends that ill never forget and had fun in COD4/GTA4 multiplayer that iv never topped.

    on 21 August 2016

    It just had a huge number of games I loved; Gears 1-3, Halo 4/Reach, Bioshock 1 and Infinite, Dead Space, Vanquish, etc.

    on 21 August 2016

    No... curl... how could you?

    Didn't we promise each other that we would die for Nintendo?

    Replaying the original Dead Space; it's still magnificent, holds up beautifully even 8 years later

    I need to get these for my X360. Other than Gears of War and a few other games I really wanted to play these.

    on 05 August 2016

    Would definitely recommend it. Also worth playing on 360 if you haven't already are Alan Wake, Halo 4/Reach, Bioshock 1/Infinite, Vanquish, and Forza 3/4/Horizon

    Nothing like playing as a technician nerd who's actually capable of fending off an entirely hostile alien entity.
    That was one of EA's hallmark games before they went creatively bankrupt.

    on 05 August 2016

    Yeah, the trajectory of the Dead Space series itself is kind of a tragic parallel of EA's descent into horribleness in my opinion; the first was great, the second less so as they tried to compete with the likes of COD by making it more action-oriented, while the third was ruined by a microtransaction economy

    on 05 August 2016

    I'll take the Dead Space trilogy over most things EA pull out these days, though. But yeah, it's actually an accurate simile of the evolution (descend into madness?) of their philosophy.

    on 05 August 2016

    It's a fucking brilliant game, one of the biggest surprises of the last gen and still looks gorgeous imo.

    on 08 August 2016

    Totally agree.

    on 08 August 2016

    Love Dead Space! Really wish the studio has stuck with the silent faceless protagonist and the slow-burn survival horror.

    on 09 August 2016

    Yeah I'm not fond of 2 or 3, but the original is one of my favourite games of last gen

    on 10 August 2016

    So I'm not the only one that loves the first one but feels a bit meh about the 2nd? I thought I was a weirdo. The 2nd is a very good game that improves some things from the first however it never hooked me as much as the first, not even close, and I wonder why.

    on 10 August 2016

    You're in good company :-)

    I adore the first game but was disappointed in the second. In Dead Space, Isaac was part Samus Aran, part Gordon Freeman. He was a silent everyman, who used his technical and mechanical skills to survive in a hostile environment.

    In the second game Isaac was more of a badass space marine. For me, that sapped the game of its soul.

    on 10 August 2016

    I never got the chance to play it till a couple nights ago. Absolutely amazing game. Probably going to buy Dead Space 2 as well.

    I don't really think GTA V is a bad game, mind you. But I don't consider ditching such a big AAA, heavily-marketized and widely loved game in favor of some much more niche, unnaccessible game to be that rare either. Both games are pretty much two different experiences altogether, and just like it happens with other media, both aim to capture a different public. There are several things that one offer, which the other lacks. And viceversa. Having favored one over the other doesn't really have to do anything with the quality, but rather, the content itself. What most people fail to acknowledge is that sometimes, one simply prefer something to other, more popular product, just because you actually prefer it. No reason needed. Not a hipster reflex, not a deviated taste. I'm positive every single game out there has the potential to become someone's favored (or favourite) game.



    I generally point out Final Fantasy 8 to be my favourite game of the franchise, and one of my favourite games altogether. Detractors (or people who really didn't like it that much) are quick to point me out its flaws -flaws I actually acknowledge-, but it doesn't matter if the game were to be an objectively piece of trash because I'd still like it regardless. Not because of being different, but because I do. For all its problems I always find something to love in it.



    Fatal Frame 5 is just the same case. I'd prefer it over GTA V, because, I do. It also helps the fact that I do love some japanese horror, it features some unique atmosphere that can't be grasped in any other genre.
