You know after everything I have gone through over the last 2+ years with my back you would think they could have sorted it out by now.
Well until that wonderful day comes I have to suffer the slings and arrows of modern medicine. I feel ready to collapse by the time they pull me out but I feel such a sense of triumph that I overcame without medication. To top it all off the noise inside is incredible, you have to wear ear plugs, some imaging places have headphones with music to supposedly help you relax and secondly to help block the noise. Also, just about every single MRI tech as had to undergo MRI's as experimental exams that are up and coming. I wouldn’t mind but I have had to have another MRI earlier this year which told me what I already know, the disks are collapsing and pressing on the nerves. With a ton of terrific titles to choose from, it's been tough picking the games we believe represent the best that the Xbox 360 has to offer.
Mirroring our article in which we listed the games that we believe represent the very best the PlayStation 3 has to offer, this feature does the same for Xbox 360. Rather than being a somewhat predictable roster of massive best-sellers, the games on this list are personal picks from the USgamer team - games chosen not for their popularity or success, but simply because we believe they deliver the most enjoyable gaming of this generation. Shadow Complex blew me away when I first played it, and I still think it holds up as one of the greatest downloadable games of this generation.
It’s a platform game whose gaming DNA contains elements of old-school shooters like Contra and Metal Slug, as well as the kind of exploring and discovery normally associated with the Metroidvania category. But while the action provides the initial draw, it’s the exploration that keeps you coming back. What impresses me the most is how Shadow Complex combines the feeling of classic platform games from the '90s, but brings the genre bang up to date with new challenges and features that show how it’s possible to teach an old dog some really neat new tricks. Just like Shadow Complex, Joe Danger takes classic gaming and updates it into something fresh, new and awesome.
Which is a good thing, because you certainly need to become adept at the game to complete some of Joe Danger’s more devious tasks. It’s this variety, and indeed the fact that Joe Danger is the kind of game you can just keep replaying over and over to improve your score and unlock more stuff that makes it so addictive. What makes the latest Forza significant for me is that it’s the first time I’ve rated the franchise higher than its competitor, Gran Turismo.
This time around, focus attacks allow for a two-phase system of moves in which a player absorbs an attack, then uses that energy to counterattack. What all this delivers is a flexible and dynamic fighting system that’s fun for novices, and was more than good enough to entice Street Fighter pros back to the franchise. It also tapped into one of my greatest joys in gaming, that moment when you understand what a game is asking you to do and think, "No way can I do that." Then you give it a shot and somehow make it through, fumbling all the way. Geometry Wars will always be my favorite Xbox 360 game, and I suspect it is still the one I spent the most time with. Causing havoc is one of the greatest joys of the open-world genre, and the Hulk is about as good a causer of havoc as you could come up with.
Adding to the thrill, the process of buildings going from pristine to demolished was often gradual. And to top it all off, when the Hulk's antics had attracted too much military attention, the way to escape the heat was to duck into the New York City subway system and ride it to a different part of town. The games were sold under the "Hall of Fame" banner, but it would have been more accurate to call them museums. If there's one Xbox game you have to play before the Xbox 360 gets set out to pasture, that game is Crackdown.
I enjoyed Grand Theft Auto III, Vice City, and San Andreas, Crackdown was the first time I had nothing but pure fun in an open-world game. An improvement over its predecessor in almost every way, Dead Space 2 is also better than its sequel - primarily because its story is scarier. If you can make it through the terrifying first 30 minutes, you'll find there are also puzzles and zero-G environments to maneuver through, and plenty more "holy crap" moments to soak up and relive when you close your eyes to go to sleep. See, while Ubisoft's Just Dance is more fun than the Dance Central series, getting better at Dance Central will actually get you closer to being a better dancer.
Add to that fact that Dance Central is one of the few games in which the Kinect works perfectly. In addition, Fable II splits the difference between a linear quest and the true open world found in the Elder Scrolls games.
Arguably the best video game based on a comic book character, Batman: Arkham City delivers a dark and seedy world filled with unpleasant undesirables and classic villains. Batman's abilities and modes of transportation through Arkham City are a central part of the game. If you do finish the game, there’s a ton of DLC to keep the beefy story going – plus you can always go back and tackle the side missions you might have missed. Sure, Crackdown wasn't perfect; its missions could become repetitive, and the targeting system left something to be desired. At the opposite extreme from Crackdown sits Mark of the Ninja, a game about stealth and subtlety.
No, it's always in your best interest to sneak up and subdue enemies unseen, and while you have a commendable arsenal of tools and skills to make that happen, you have to work for it, too.
These hints unfold in the form of playable flashbacks, and those missions do reflect the standard Halo action style. The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile has the distinction of both being one of the first few games I played on the platform and one of my favorites. Bizarre Creations' swansong may have been released on multiple platforms, but I'll always associate it with the 360, as that's where I spent the majority of my time with it. Blur was a wonderfully creative thing: the realistic cars and real-world settings of the Project Gotham Racing series blended effortlessly with the neon aesthetic of Geometry Wars and the powerup-heavy racing of Mario Kart. Multiplayer was the real star, since it completely lifted Call of Duty's entire multiplayer metagame and successfully transplanted it to a totally different genre.
Blur's multiplayer community is all but dead today, sadly, but the single-player component remains challenging and worthwhile, and the split-screen multiplayer is, for my money, at least as fun as the last few Mario Kart games.
I'll never quite understand why the bullet hell developer community gravitated towards the Xbox 360 as its platform of choice when the rest of Japan shunned it. Like most of Cave's other bullet hell shooters, the challenge in Deathsmiles comes not only from successfully making it through the levels unscathed, but in understanding the game's complicated scoring system.
Deathsmiles is, in short, a fine example of how the shmup genre demands as much skill as other highly technical types of game -- like, say, fighting games -- and yet at the same time remains both playable and enjoyable to newcomers. Some prefer the original -- it's the reason I bought a 360 in the first place, in fact -- but the refined, expanded experience that was Geometry Wars 2 was all I played for a significant period of time immediately after its release. This early implementation of asynchronous multiplayer helped elevate Geometry Wars 2 from being a competent sequel to its predecessor into pure "digital crack" territory. Even though people have largely stopped playing the game competitively these days, Geometry Wars 2 still remains a fun single player experience. Geometry Wars 2 is significant for a number of reasons: firstly, it's simply a great game -- so far as I'm concerned, it's one of the best on the console -- but perhaps more notably, it was one of a number of games that started pushing us towards an at least semi-digital future, and highlighted the fact that new games didn't have to cost $60 and have multi-million dollar budgets. Hopefully these kinds of smaller, more experimental stories make a return in Destiny now that Bungie aren't necessarily confined to the strictures of an epic character-driven, campaign-focused franchise.

After focusing on free-to-play for so long, developers of competitive titles are starting to see paid titles as an option again.
A few years ago I bought a pair of these for about $180, I can't find the exact model now but they look just like these. These are not the audiophile pick, but I find them to stay put pretty well and aren't too bulky. Third vote for Grados if you're listening in a semi-quiet environment where bleed isn't an issue. But if it's just for pleasure, you can really just pick any set that you like the sound of and are comfortable. Don't know what the modern equivalent is, i've had these for 5-6 years now, but they sound good, they're comfy, and they were cheap.
I arrived here after looking back to my summer weeknights, and not having anything to show for it, really. That said, love me some books, but want to surround myself with more sophisticated hacks, not necessarily weird rubber band bookmarks.
Yep, not everyone remembers to use their “inside voice” while you’re trying to read. Problem solved with these brilliant Sshhh, I’m Reading Ear Plugs!
Behind-the-scenes reporting and your guide to the newest and trendiest products hitting the market now! If you are someone who frequents WDW and have not come here yet, I would make a note of considering it. In terms of ambiance, like most resort table service locations, the decor you see around the resort is what you get for a setting at the restaurant, basically. Due to the good food and service, and taking into account the apparent lack of popularity (as is consistent with the resort in comparison to other Deluxe Villa resorts on property), I would say this restaurant is a little something of a hidden gem.
This was a good place just off of Main Street at MK where soups, salads and sandwiches make up the menu.
For my meal I had a cup of potato soup which was creamy and full of flavor, yet not overwhelmed by salt.
All-in-all, this is a great place to go if you're looking for a full stomach at a good price.
This is one place I was very excited to try out, primarily because of the copious negative reviews I have read over the years.
From this visit it was apparent that the San Angel Inn is trying to do 2 things, step up the quality of their food and bring in more people. If Pan-Asian cuisine is something you enjoy and you plan on touring Animal Kingdom Park, this is a great place to try out! Granted, the price for this food far exceeds that of what we paid at our favorite Chinese restaurant back home, but hey, it's Disney World. So as my rating indicates, this is a great restaurant IMO, and one which we want to return to in the future, but we haven't planned anything specific yet. It is important to note that this was my very first Signature Dining experience, so this restaurant, while a 5, does fall into a whole other class of restaurant than any of the ones I have previously reviewed (Le Cellier was not a signature restaurant at the time I went there for dinner). The ambiance of this place was like a contemporary rustic, so to that end it was a bit different than the rest of Wilderness Lodge. I decided to get a bowl of the Portobello Soup at the advice of a friend who had been here before and it was an excellent choice. For my entree, I went with our server's suggestion and ordered the Buffalo Strip Steak. For dessert, I followed another of our server's suggestions and ordered the berry cobbler with raspberry ice cream. The entire experience lasted 2 hours or so, so signature dining is not for those on a tight schedule. If you've never been to a hibachi grill before, here is an excellent place to try it out for the first time.


OK, so after years of calling 'Ohana my place for Family Style Dining at WDW, the Garden Grill has officially become a worthy alternative when planning my future visits. The restaurant appeared to be a fun and popular destination for a great many families, yet seating is very limited. The Characters, Farmer Mickey, Pluto, Chip and Dale, were able to spend quite a bit of time at each table without rushing on to the next.
Our server was very attentive and friendly, keeping our beverages full and our food coming as desired. We considered getting more salad briefly, but we wanted more so to continue on with the main course, which turned out to be a great choice on our part.
We enjoyed second helpings of all of it, but the beef was particularly flavorful, tender and juicy and the tilapia was perfectly prepared.
Over all, it was a fantastic meal and we all felt satisfied and sure that the rest of the week, this meal would be most difficult to upstage. The setting is supposed to be that of an old studio warehouse that was renovated into an Italian restaurant.
As to the food, the others in my party enjoyed appetizers of Caesar Salad and Oak-fired Mussels. By the time we finished, due to the generous portion sizes, we were all too stuffed to try dessert! While it was a novel and creative dessert with great presentation, I don't recommend it.
Our server did her part well in keeping our beverages topped off and removing used dishes from the table while I was away at the buffet. Overall, I would say that while the atmosphere was memorable, the food, while generally good, was also forgettable. This was a kind of spur of the moment decision to check this place out for dessert since we had heard good things about it. While we didn't order dinner, we got to see the chef grilling burgers and other sandwiches that looked very hearty and appetizing. According to the menu, it contains "Scoops of vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, coffee, and mint chocolate chip served with all the toppings in the house and a whole can of whipped cream.
Neither works, I just hope this time they find out why I still have so much pain, leg spasms, pins and needles and numb areas on my lower legs.  It makes it hard to do anything, sitting, bending (even to brush my teeth) kneeling, all hurt like crazy and laying helps the alleviate the pain a bit but brings on the spasms more!
Yes, a few smash hits have snuck in, but these are games we believe are true classics: the best of the best.
But while its roots are steeped in history, Shadow Complex’s presentation, production values and modern-day trappings evolve the genre into something completely contemporary.
Even though it’s fundamentally based on a platform construct that’s essentially 2D, the gameplay transcends its dimensional limitations with some clever design elements.
In classic Metroid style, when you start the game, you can immediately see that there’s a vast environment to explore – but to access different parts of it, you need to find the right items.
It has a terrific atmosphere, compelling plot, some excellent set-piece boss battles, and tons of secret stuff to discover. This time around, it’s elements of NES Excitebike, Game Boy Motocross Maniacs, and (for the gaming trainspotters amongst you) even a touch of Commodore 64 KikStart. Initially, it seems like the game is just a straightforward racer, but it’s not just about racing or time trials; there are a huge variety of challenges that’ll tax – and indeed help develop – your skills. I’ve been in love with Polyphony’s series ever since I bought it on import at the end of 1997. Each new edition has evolved the game – maybe sometimes a little too slowly – but have nevertheless ensured the series has kept moving in the right direction. I can’t wait to see how the pair continue to duel it out over the next, but for now, it doesn’t get any better than this. Way, way back to when the very first coin-op almost broke my knuckles thanks to its ridiculous pneumatic punch buttons.
Street Fighter IV is a brilliant blend of old and new, making for what I believe is the best fighting game to grace the Xbox 360. That’s a ringing endorsement for sure, and the reason why I believe Street Fighter IV is the undisputed fighting champ of this generation.
It was so simple in concept, just another top-down twin-stick shooter of the Robotron: 2084 lineage, but it had such depth and style I could play it almost endlessly.
The joy of this "dancing between the raindrops" in Geometry Wars was so compelling I just stopped using the get-out-of-a-fix-free smart bombs entirely. I didn't buy a retail game after launch for about half a year, partly because of the standard post-launch drought of releases and partly because I was spending hours every night waging Geometry Wars, the $5 game that justified my $400 Xbox 360.
Developer Edge of Reality understood this, and they made it uproariously entertaining to explore the destructive potential of a surprisingly accurate New York City. Every skyscraper had a facade that could be hammered away in bits and pieces, so a skirmish in the streets will create collateral damage that could be simultaneously satisfying and surprising. They never showed the actual trip, but I derived plenty of entertainment thinking about the Hulk trying to keep a low profile on a packed train, avoiding awkward eye contact with fellow passengers and wondering if that one puny human knows his music is cranked so loud his earphones are doing nothing to keep the rest of the car from hearing his awful taste in music.
I lost silly amounts of time to Epic Pinball, Devil's Crush, or Pinball FX, learning each game's virtual tables and janky physics inside and out until I could earn extra balls faster than I lost them, achieving a sort of pinball immortality. These were relics, dinosaurs really, preserved in peak condition for people to appreciate and understand long after the actual tables go extinct. There was next to no story, just a vague notion of cleaning up the city as an augmented agent, backed by a faceless Director. As the first sequel in the Dead Space series, the game had a foot in the horror and action sides of the fence, and delivers an experience full of tension, tight corridors, nauseating monsters, and soul haunting scenes.
It introduces the use of telekinetic powers, letting you slow down enemies or fire things across a room at all the creatures trying to kill you.
It's the ZombiU of the Kinect: the game where the promise of new controls shines upon your withered, cynical heart.
Fable kicked off everything and Fable III tried some interesting ideas, but Fable II will always be my go-to Fable title. Fable II offers different routes throughout the world, each with hidden treasures and nooks to find, but it never really breaks out into a huge plain or mountain range. Whether you're swinging through frozen buildings or roughing up local punks, there are always a variety of ways to work through your current task. Crackdown holds the distinction of being not only my favorite Xbox 360 game, but possibly my favorite last-gen game, period. A unique fog of war system obscures everything outside your character's line of sight, fading objects to a blur as you move away and your residual memory fades.
Halo, like a lot of other shooters, tends to stick to a formula; ODST shakes things up, maintaining the series' fundamental mechanics but demanding a different approach. But even they have a difference, as you take control not of the usual superhuman Master Chief but rather as elite soldiers -- and the disparity in power becomes clear as combat scenarios that had long since become old hat for the Chief suddenly elevate in difficulty.
The first time I was actually able to sit down in front of the console was a little over two years ago. Largely monochromatic outside of the occasional laser and the copious amounts of blood, Vampire Smile is, in a word, brutal.
It was a racing game quite unlike anything else I'd ever played, and it was utterly compelling in both single- and multiplayer modes. As you raced, you'd gain experience for pulling off various cool maneuvers and performing well, with each gained level providing you with new vehicles, perks and other benefits. It's a shame Bizarre Creations never got the chance to refine the series with a sequel, because it had a huge amount of potential. But I'm glad it did, because it means there's a whole host of excellent 2D shooters available for Microsoft's console -- and frankly it was a little difficult to choose between them. It strikes a brilliant balance between accessibility and the seemingly insurmountable challenges of the bullet hell genre, it's bursting with personality and it has one of the best soundtracks I've ever heard.
As you defeat enemies, they drop items, with different types of item being worth different amounts of points and adding to a counter in the corner of the screen.
I attribute this not to all the extra game modes, the sharper, more colorful graphics or the wonderful dynamic music, but instead to a tiny interface change Bizarre Creations made between the two games: replacing the first game's local high score readout with an Xbox Live-powered high score display that showed your nearest rival at all times.
It helped that I had a healthy number of friends playing it at the same time as me, of course, which meant there was pretty much always a new high score to beat regardless of when I played.
Its various game modes all play remarkably differently from one another, and everyone will likely have their favorites -- for me, I particularly enjoyed the Pacifism mode, in which you couldn't shoot and had to destroy enemies by passing through exploding gates, and Sequence mode, which tasked you with working through a linear sequence of levels that followed exactly the same patterns every time you played. I just hope that, as a digital-only title, its legacy isn't lost in the transition to next-gen. Of course I still love the grandiose, lore-driven arc of the core titles, but this take on the universe was such a breath of fresh air. Deadly Premonition, too, although that's probably too quirky to include on a general "10 best" list. They usually have a pretty good selection of headphones (including Bose) for much less then retail. Take a look here at some of my favorite book accessories and solutions – and happiest reading! Designed for readers, they block out unwanted background noise, creating the perfect silence you need to enjoy your salacious summer read. Now you can enjoy the look of your favorite tomes, while charging your phone with Booksi’s iPhone and Android charger.

My sister and I did the Keys to The Kingdom tour our guide had worked at WDW for about 5 years.
I wouldn't mind but I am extremely claustrophobic and the injection of that dye hurts darn it! Unless, you are having an exam in which they require you to hold your breath; they will let you know when to hold your breath and for how long. So while it might be shocking that games like GTA V, Bioshock Infinite and Mass Effect 3 are missing, that doesn’t mean we don’t like them.
The camera zooms in for moments of close combat, and you often encounter enemies that are shooting at you from cover in the background – and you can return fire by aiming your gun into the screen. As you work your way through the game, your character also levels up, making him stronger and more adept, so that challenges that seemed impossible to handle only a while ago become just speed bumps when you go back and try them again. Needless to say, if you grew up on platformers and missed this the first time around, this is a must.
Yep, it’s a side-scrolling motocross game – but one that has been lovingly crafted into something that’s really special. Things start out simply enough, but as you play, you’re given new challenges that test your mettle, but don’t ever make you feel like you’re hitting any kind of wall. Whether it’s performing specific stunts, grabbing stars or hitting targets, there’s a ton of things to do in this game. It made a huge impression on me, and playing through it over the following weeks is one of my gaming high points. And in true tortoise and hare fashion, these improvements have slowly, but surely enabled Forza to reel in the huge lead carved out by Gran Turismo and simply become the better game. Yep – the original Street Fighter had buttons you physically hit, and depending on how hard you punched, it would select a particular move for you.


Its fighting style steers away from linking combos, instead focusing on a system more like boxing.
Then there's the ultra combos, similar to the super combos in that they involve long, cinematic moves, but different in that the ultra combo gauge, or revenge gauge, fills up when taking damage, not when inflicting it. When I started going for high scores, I actually had to re-learn how to use them, as I'd come to believe I could escape any situation unscathed (even though there was plenty of evidence to the contrary). Based largely on Radical Entertainment's excellent The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction, Sega's movie-based Hulk game took the general basics (and to be honest, many of the specifics) of that game's open-world take on the Hulk and sharpened the focus on destruction. From Radio City Music Hall to the Guggenheim Museum to the United Nations, Hulk's New York was loaded down with recognizable landmarks, all of which could be reduced to rubble. I won't forget when I surveyed the damage after one fight and noticed that the bus I had hurled through the air earlier had embedded itself in the corner of a building about five stories off the ground. The one problem was that their tables were all original constructions, so as good as they might have been, they were never quite like the real thing. Unlike that one machine you remember in the back of the bowling alley that had an "out of order" sign on it half the time and one gimpy flipper the rest, these pinball tables will always be immaculately maintained. Like Brave Fencer Musashi, which included a demo for Final Fantasy VIII, there was a highly anticipated game hiding behind Crackdown. Our super-powered cops probably ended up causing as much damage as they stopped, but the game was pure fun. Crackdown 2 was rough around the edges, but Volition has provided the spiritual sequel the original game always deserved in the form of Saints Row IV. The fun game will always be more popular because everyone can try it, but it's more challenging and rewarding to try the latter title. I appreciated the tighter focus as I tend to find myself wandering into the middle of nowhere and getting stomped into a bloody smear in the Elder Scrolls games. It does not judge you for your evil deeds, it's always there finding treasure, and it defends you in battle. While Grand Theft Auto was busy crawling up its own arse and undermining its fundamental appeal by trying to be Serious Art, Crackdown saw GTA's original visionary (David Jones) remind his former colleagues what it was all about: Big, dumb, freeform fun with a plot that existed only so far as to give everyone the excuse to cause mayhem. Despite not being based on any existing property, it was quite simply the ultimate comic book game. It's 2D stealth, and it works because developer Klei took such a brilliant approach to the idea. Sound is represented visually to give a sense of location and range -- not only the noise your enemies create, but the sound your ninja causes as well -- allow you to plan your movements by tracking your enemies by "ear." It sounds weird, but it works perfectly.
Rather than unfolding as a simple linear shooter as usual, it falls back to the original game's more open environments and expands on the concept, using a night-soaked occupied city as a hub to uncover hints for the whereabouts of the protagonist's lost orbital drop ship trooper team. Surviving conflicts with high-level Covenant warriors becomes less a matter of nimble footwork and more a desperate, panicked struggle to stay alive. It was mid-summer in Sweden and the moment I could, I crammed the poor box full of indie stuff. The more you played, the more you could customize your experience and set your car up according to your own personal play style, whether that was aggressive, defensive or technical.
When this reaches a particular milestone, you can trigger a bonus mode, in which everything explodes into showers of high-value items, causing your score to skyrocket.
Some even took to deliberately blocking the top-right corner of their screen with opaque tape when playing, as the temptation to glance at your rival's score was usually enough to ruin an otherwise solid run. It's a shame novel concepts like this are so often relegated to "expansions" or side titles, and often go ignored by the bulk of gamers.
I prefer an on-ear fit versus an over-ear fit, so these small headphones are light and comfortable as hell. Never had an issue with mine falling out, unlike the ones with that one size fits all rubber E36 M3. My nights are now met with dinner at the kitchen table reading TIME, taking Lella on a long walk in the warm rain, going for a bike ride with a friend. Keep track of your stash with this kit that includes 20 self-adhesive pockets, checkout cards, date stamp and inkpad, and a mini pencil, of course. The charging cord is well secured into the book and it can be built to accommodate your phone so that you can continue reading that page-turner on your phone during your morning commute should you want to lighten your load. I am not sure you could say that for a coffin!  If you are claustrophobic, make sure you tell you doctor in advance and he can usually give you something to relax you.
We'd love to hear what you think and which games you believe represent the best that the Xbox 360 has to offer. Both these mechanics combined with the more traditional platforming helps everything feel more dynamic and varied than any platform game of yore.
This makes progress feel very satisfying and rewarding, and combines perfectly with the intense, exciting action to create a truly memorable game. You just keep on going and going… until you pull off an insanely complex series of combos and suddenly realize just how good you’ve gotten at the game.
Following several hours of uproarious gaming, I came home, booted up my 360 and downloaded it immediately. However, over subsequent editions, the series has increasingly felt like it’s resting on its laurels – and that more time was being spent on cosmetic enhancements, rather than adding new features and making the racing more exciting and interesting. This makes for a slightly different experience than prior SF games, and one where you can more easily read your opponent’s moves and counter them.
At first, I was piloting a ship through clouds of enemies relentlessly chasing me around an enclosed playfield.
At first I thought something that awesome had to have been a bug, but about 20 minutes and 30 cars lodged into buildings later, I was convinced the game was functioning as intended. Then Farsight started making pinball games based on real-world tables, and with shockingly true-to-life physics.
It may be my favorite game this generation, but I'm convinced its true value (and that of the Pinball Arcade series that spawned from it) will only be appreciated by future generations. Kill gang members, leap to the rooftops, collect orbs, power-up your abilities, and repeat. I figured if I was going to get a motion control peripheral, I might as well get games that I couldn't play anywhere else.
Do you go through the front door with fists flying, or perhaps sneak your way in undetected. The experience and growth system combines neatly with the go-anywhere traversal mechanics to slowly unlock the game, naturally, as your Agent gains more powers -- the perfect expression of "Metroidvania" design in a sandbox world.
While your ninja is far and away more capable and silent than his enemies, he's also incredibly fragile; once you're spotted, it's practically game over (though not a forced one as in some games). And the new DLC that unlocks a fully non-lethal mode of play means I have an excuse to go back and play through it again….
Both the reduction in firepower and the change in structure make ODST unlike any other Halo game, and an interesting exploration of what the series could be like if the audience were more willing to let its creators experiment a little. People talk a lot about how visceral combat feels but Vampire Smile makes it a point to make that statement mean something. To add further complications, each type of enemy is best defeated with one of three different types of attack, meaning you'll have to learn not only attack patterns, but which weapons you should be using in each situation, too. ODST might have been shorter and smaller in scope than the other titles, but the concept was fully formed and, to me also, the most satisfying. Of course I'm half deaf so don't hear certain pitches and tones but they still sound good to me. Make sure you ask for an anti-anxiety medicine for anxiety and a pain medicine if you are in pain. But then I realized every enemy in the game (except for the first, most harmless one) moved in relation or reaction to the player. The first, Gottlieb Pinball Hall of Fame, was a collection of vintage pinball machines spiked with a couple flashier, more modern tables. Until then, Pinball Hall of Fame will stand simply as a loving retrospective on a sadly unheralded but distinctly American art form. So people bought Crackdown for Halo 3 and we were surprised to find out the game was damn good. Jump higher, drive faster, and dispatch the city's gangs using whatever was at your disposal. There's just a sense of whimsy found in Fable II that's not present in Bethesda's well-crafted RPGs.
Perhaps you want to throw off your enemy with smoke and mirrors, or use technology to gain the upper hand.
When you finally earn the agility to scale that central tower and then leap to your death a kilometer below for the hell of it -- because after all your Agent is totally expendable -- it all feels worthwhile. The controls are tight, the characters highly responsive, the range of weaponry and moves almost criminally satisfying; oh, and have I mentioned it has a co-op mode? The best part is that they're sort of a combination of earplug and speaker, which makes them excellent for noisy environments. Granted, I do love me some H2, Jon Stewart and Science Channel, but should I really lose my beautiful summer to Cupcake Wars? An anti-anxiety medicine will NOT take away pain; so if this is the case and you are unable to lie on your back, you will need two meds. The only thing I didn’t like that much is the Autovista mode, which felt like it had been put into the game to try to sell racing fans on Kinect, rather than being a genuinely compelling addition to the series. Your miles may vary, of course, but I loved the way SFIV handles combos, and the whole thing just feels a little more open for tactical improvisation. After that, it became a game about identifying the current mix of enemies on the screen and determining the proper strategy for herding them into one cluster that could then be mowed through with great efficiency. But The Williams Pinball Collection was a different beast, collecting some of the greatest machines ever made, from classics like Pinbot to Medieval Madness and Tales of the Arabian Nights.
The DLC even included the harpoon gun to attach thugs to passing vehicles and landmarks (that sounds more gruesome than it really is). They're all possible and the game generally didn't lock you to a single path unless you murdered the townsfolk without impunity on your way to infamy.
Combine this freedom with superlative graphics and sound, and you have a game that’s gloomy, atmospheric, and absolutely brilliant. And then you open up your game to a friend for go-anywhere co-op and the fun REALLY begins….
The savagery of the whole package is heightened further by the graphics: rough, ragged lines and twisted imagery galore.
