Xcom: Enemy Unknown is a great turn-based game. It’s like chess with aliens and plasma weapons. Tons of management, research and customization options too. You can end up attached to those little guys after several missions. I often reloaded save games to avoid casualties. Highly recommended.
Borderlands 1 has a great premise….millions of guns. The rough line drawn style is pretty damn nice too. And of course the characters rock. Brick is by far my favorite of the bunch. I won’t lie, this isn’t my best show for an ending. I had to break it into two videos because the boss whooped me a couple times.
Dishonored is a pretty decent stealth game. The levels were unique with different options to achieve your goals although they all came down to either being Good or Bad. Teleporting, possessing enemies, and rigging security systems added some refreshing options to the stealth genre. Things got a little repetitious towards the end but it was fun ride.
Well, I beat it. About 4 days in and a total of 8 hours or so. Heart of the Swarm had a nice variety of missions, although there weren’t that many. Most of the missions expanded as you progressed so they weren’t simple and quick. I don’t care for timed missions though and it seemed they crammed an awful lot of them in there.
BulletStorm is offensive, tasteless and vulgar, and I love it. Plenty of style and personality with good ole fashion, over the top, gun-blazing carnage. I recall several WTF moments with a ridiculous abundance of profanity and flying body parts but unfortunately it’s all stuffed in an 8 hour wrapper. Overall I recommend it, especially if you happen upon it during one of Steam’s infamous sales.
I split the ending into two videos, here’s Part 1:
Here’s the final battle and ending of Dead Space for your enjoyment.
