    @RyanDS :D

    All the eurogamers who actually play with each other on xbl rather than just post pseudointellectual pc handwringing bollocks on the forums, love the shit out of biggy.

    Fable III.

    I loved Fable II but Fable III just bored me. The mechanics are so stripped back (leveling) they are almost non-existent.
    Totally agree with this. Picked it up during a steam sale and I really wanted to love it but it has no soul. Fable II is lovely as it had a lovely world with some interesting story's.

    However 3 just feels so watered down with nothing really interesting. Nothing wrong with button mashing if other things have purpose, but there really isn't more to it.

    @Spong I know I'm being stupid even replying to this, but really? That's just ludicrous fanboy over-reaction right there. Not only have you not played it, but previews and things are often inaccurate or only paint one part of the picture, so no matter how much you've seen you can't know for sure what the finished game will be like.

    That aside, let's assume that you had played it to completion and you actually had a valid argument, why the hell would that put you off the previous games? And there's little reason to assume that this represents the future of the series either- that will depend largely on how it sells, how it reviews and how players respond to it. If others dislike it then they'll likely take a different approach for the next game.

    Plus there's already been an action packed Tomb Raider- Tomb Raider: Legend. Did you write the whole series off after that only to return to it when they made two more fairly authentic games? What's to say they won't do that again now?

    I don't really know why people bother responding to someone who makes statements based on previews and not playing the game. Their views are so completely without merit and they're clearly complete morons so why justify their posts.

    Anyway, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, because the DVD was in my xbox when the burglars took it :(

    I'm sorry man, I got burgled on the 21st last year. They love ruining people's Christmases don't they? Cunts.

    Ys Seven (Vita/PSP) - I am abandoning it again, this time for good. I am sorry. Had my share of fun with it and made some remarkable progress. Then, thinking I was near the end I took a peek at Gamefaqs and was shocked to find out how long it still was to completion. Wished I did not select the hard difficulty at the start, but those boss fights are basically just press the x button repeatedly as fast as possible anyway. The story is some cliche bullshit about dragons, nothing I've not seen a thousand times in other JRPGs, yet the game has nice music and can be fun for a while.

    At the moment I believe I may have abandoned dishonoured. What started off as very enjoyable has slowly withered to repetitive and mundane.

    It could just be because im playing borderlands at the same time which is why it seems a bit .... flat

    I thinking about packing in Dishonored. Really think I shouldn't, but it's like Bioshock all over again for me. I didn't get that either.

    Far cry 3 is moving closer to the top of the list. Getting to the stage where I'm having to force myself to play it, which isn't good. Only 20 or so minutes into dishonored, so I'll give that more of a chance

    Dishonored.

    Just spent a good 2 hours on that whiskey distillery mission, just met samuel the boatkeeper guy and i must admit, this game is a bit shit isn't it.

    Its just no fun to play for me. No fun at all.
    It feels like a right chore. I just went gung-ho through the distillery eventually after getting halfway through the mission stealthly then i got spotted and everything went tits up. I then had to massacre about 15 people and a few weird dog looking things. I didn't want to do that obviously but i just couldn't be arsed redoin it again.
    Even playing stealthly and not getting spotted bored me to tears and i normally love stealth games.

    And whats with that see thru walls power. That just felt totally out of place in a game with this setting. I can accept seeing through walls being Batman in arkham asylum but in this game i never used it. No wonder i kept getting spotted.
    And the game looks as rough as a bears arse. Im just not feeling this games vibe at all.

    I put the game back in the box and ill trade it in tmoz. Shame really as i was looking forward to this.

    Did you turn off the objective markers?

    You should put this in the unpopular game opinions thread because you sir are fully wrong.

    What a horrible excuse for a game.

    That makes Borderlands sound deep. Bored the hell out of me. Well dying because the frame rate kept spazzing out when enemies were near me did.

    Glad I'm not the only one who is finding Dishonored a dull, fugly game. Think I'll have to stick it on the back burner completely until I finish Far Cry 3 because there really is no contest between those two.

    Lol. I wouldnt say deep but the action is the excitement for me. I normally love a good stealth em up but there just seems to be something missing from dishonoured that I cant quite put my finger on.

    Gonna sell it to my mate I think.

    Totally agree. No contest.
    I completed Far Cry 3 a few days ago and then went straight to Dishonored. The difference in fun factor was immenese. It was like going from Pamela Anderson to Hayley Cropper.

    I really had to push myself and motivate myself to play dishonored, it did feel like a bit of a chore to play. I desperately tried to like it and i genuienly give it a fair crack of the whip but alas, i just wasn't having fun so its getting traded in.

    Far Cry 3 on the other hand i could not put down. I played that game any chance i got and enjoyed every minute. And it is bloody gorgeous.

    I really liked dishonored. I especially liked how they had provided non-lethal ways of taking down your targets. I also thought the story was pretty good for a video game. However.. suffocating npc's into unconsciousness gets a bit dull after a while and the x ray vision power makes the game too easy and takes the suspense out of it - but is difficult not to use once you have it.
    I can't agree with people calling it ugly. Some of the outdoor vistas and sunbeam effects were genuinely arresting.

    I'd recommend just doing the main story missions in AC3 and forgetting the rest at that point so you can just get to the end.

    Then you'll discover the ending is complete shit and the whole game was a disappointment.

    This space left intentionally blank.

    Sold Far Cry 3. I was starting to get bored by about the second island, pushed through hoping a change of scenery would reinvigorate my interest but alas I just couldn't find the motivation anymore. Was alot of fun but the story was doing nothing for me.

    I'm currently in the same boat, I'm doing exactly as you recommend. I can't really be arsed with all the homestead stuff, it just seems so pointless. I think one of the major problems is that the American revolution just isn't that interesting a landscape and theme to explore. Florence was fucking amazing (it did help that I'd been there and knew the history somewhat) but Boston is fucking dull and the wilderness is equally dull. I do like running through trees though :-)

    You are a factory of sadness.

    Thanks! Got the insurance money so off to replace everything now.

    Can somoeone tell me if Deus Ex is available to buy on Games on Demand and how much it is? I've already got the box and instruction manual etc just the CD missing!

    I checked xbox.com and found it on the games on demand but the webpage was playing up and said it might not be available and wouldn't give me a price. Much appreciated!

    It was 14.99 last time I checked. If you don't mind waiting though you can get it on Amazon for 7 at the moment (check the bargains thread!).

    Dishonoured: Dunwall city trials DLC

    Despite Dishonoured comfortably being my GOTY, I really don't like the trials DLC. It seems to go against one of the main things that made the main game great, the fact you could play anyway you wanted and if you failed, seamlessly fallback on a different style. These trials are based on a single skill where it's all to easy to hit "you failed" messages and end up with restart after restart, not fun. The sneak based ones are ok, but that's only 2 trials out of 10, and there you have it... 2/10.

    Me too and me too. Im grudgingly ploughing through it just because ive put so much time into the other ones and want a resolution, but I wouldnt hurry to buy another game in the series.

    Shame really but this has absolutely lost its focus. Its just an absolute trudge and thats without doing any of the stupid side stuff that I have had to sit through countless tutorials just to ignore.
