Same here (although I only have part of a literature degree ) - but I do enjoy gameplay only games (Mario) occasionally and I thing truly great games have both...

Already preordered

Might cancel though... Next up is HZD which will take some time, and I really like ME: Andromeda, definitely doesn't deserve all that hate, so I'm probably all set thru June and a large part of July

I preordered this week. Got a physical copy because it's one of those games I just want to have a disc of, but I kinda regret it cos the PS Store is offering a beautiful free theme with the preorder.

A bit expensive for a game (well, three) I've played countless times already but I'll stick to it.

Been meaning to ask, how was Oddworld? Another game that brings a lot of nostalgia to me so I was considering it. Remembered cos one of the PS3 games for next month is Abyss Odyssey :lol: (Looks good though)

I liked it! I remember playing an Abe game for PS1/2 on my brother's PS, but it was the other one coming by the end of this year... Didn't quite know, so I got it for 5 bucks on sale, definitely worth it, it's not just a remake, apparently, but has additional sections as well...

Expensive? How much is it? Mine is 35€... I think that's ok for what will probably be some 40+ hrs for 100%...

€36 including shipping from the UK (I practically never buy from ripoff Maltese stores anymore... They'll probably sell for €60). Quite good for 3 games to be fair. My point was that I've played the old ones so many times, know them like the back of my hand, and still have them, so it feels like nothing new.

Didn't even know Oddworld was a remake. I've only played one, Abe's Odyssey (hence why Abyss Odyssey reminded me of it). I'll look into it.

If anyone's interested: 12 months PSPlus membership is on sale right now... If you buy a network card online, the price is effectively 26€ for 12 months...

Does the Star Wars Battlefront deal still apply?

EDIT: well actually, it's on sale right now so the 12 month price + price for the game (which I'm unsure I want, anyway) is currently cheaper than the usual 12 month price. I'll renew now (mine expires next week).

Consider ME:A if you ask me!

Yes, some of the facial expressions and gestures suck ass, and it has a couple of annoying bugs (for completionists, mainly), but you get a good SP campaign on top and the MP is more diversified IMHO...

Not a priority for me but probably one of those games I'll get when it's much cheaper.

Damn Dishonored is BORING. And extremely easy. All those grey colours don't help either.

I'll try to stick with it because it's short (apparently) but I'm disappointed... It looked exciting

Played ME:Andromeda, expected to connect to the characters in a personal way I did in the original trilogy, got disappointed, and went back to replay the original trilogy to feel something about the characters again.

I guess nothing could top the character immersion of the original trilogy, truly the best games ever in that regard. Andromeda is really fun though, it's just that the story and writing are average.

I kinda agree... I think the immersion thing is greatly due to that horrible facial recognition job they did... There was more potential in the game, but I'm having fun playing it...

In addition, I think it's also the writing of the characters - I mean, the original trilogy games were written to absolute perfection - and to an extent voice acting. There is true charisma to the characters in the original trilogy, while the characters in Andromeda just feel like any other video game characters.

For instance, I've played through the trilogy multiple times and one of my favourite runs is a paragon female Shepard romancing Liara and man, not only was my Shepard was in love with Liara, I was in love with Liara. It was a really hypnotic series of games, and I guess it would be silly to expect other games to reach that height. It's like reading an immersive book you can't put down.

Didn't really have that... I liked the first and the second game - the third not so much... But you're right about those two IMHO
