Downloaded the Dust 514 beta in the hopes that I'd get to kill some dudes before I went to bed. However, it took me a half an hour to get ready, and by then I was too tired to play. Who knew this game would be so complicated before you even got into battle?

I will say that this looks like it could potentially be a great game...that I'll only play 3 times. Because there's no singleplayer whatsoever. I don't think there's even a training mode.

It's called an MMO FPS for a reason I usually just jump into the instant action modes and use the starter dropsuit. I still haven't quite figured out how to customize my dropsuits yet, but I've only been able to play it twice so far.

I've been playing DUST 514 for well over a year now and yes, it's a great game that makes great use of the F2P model. It does take awhile to download and get into, but once you do - it's flippin great.

Really? From my time on the closed Beta I got the impression that it was little more than a stock-standard multiplayear FPS.

@Bankai - IIRC (as in if I'm not thinking of someone else), you have very high standards for an FPS. So your "standard" is pretty great for the rest of us.

I dunno if I would call it 'standards,' lol. I really don't like the genre as a whole, so for a FPS to impress me it really does need to do something original/ innovative/ better than everything else in the genre.

Of recent years that has meant Serious Sam 3, Crysis and.... that's about it, really

Edit - I should say that I fully accept that Dust is probably a good game for fan of the genre. I wouldn't necessarily give it a "bad" review.

I've been racking my brain all week over what games to buy before the sale ends tomorrow. I finally decided to go with Machinarium and Warp since they both look cool and $5 for both seems pretty good. I've also been waiting for a price drop on Unfinished Swan so I had to get it. I really wanted LBPK but passed on it because I have a feeling we'll end up getting it for free sometime this year.

This is my first time purchasing any games in well over a year thanks to Plus.

For those playing Ni no Kuni, while I'm sure you could find similar info on GameFAQs, if you want generally spoiler free advice on what tamable monsters are good to fight with, Agent D. on RPGFan keeps running into a lot of good ones, starting from reply #52 on: http://www.rpgfan.com/boards/index.php?topic=12105.45

Of course, the fact of the matter is that you're good with almost anything, but still, a lot of people have found his advice helpful. And he found a God Chichu-level monstrosity that seems to destroy everything it encounters, especially as it levels up. Actually, I'm finding this thread in general to be helpful, and very few spoilers so far, too.

Nice! I just wish I could get around to my first run through of the trilogy, period.

The fact you of all people haven't played these games cuts me to the very bone

So yeah. Crysis 3. Awesome. Better than Call of Duty and Battlefield. And Killzone.

Yeah I said it.

Just for you.

You act like that's difficult to believe in any way. I didn't like Crysis 2 as much as a lot of people (granted I didn't play more than a couple of hours or so) and it's still better than those games.

Bioshock is 10 years old. Let's play through its horrific environment and see why its so beloved!

^ This is irrelevant, but that article you wrote about the Souls series makes me want to start up Demon's Souls again. Previously I only got up to the Flamelurker, and I'd love to apply what I've learned in my 100+ hours of playing Dark Souls.

I loved getting back into Demon's Souls. I had forgotten just how much I preferred it to Dark Souls which, as good as it was, was just another good action-RPG.

Demon's Souls was raw and beautifully sadistic.
