    I sat through the Okami intro last night and the first save I made after that was clocked at 18 minutes and 30 seconds.

    Yes, it's unskippable and unnecessarily long and the "voices" are horrible, but it has a busty sprite (who I think dies during the intro?) and a moderately entertaining painter bug who lives between her breasts.

    What follows is an enjoyable game, and within the first hour you've met a dragon god and a hamster god, learned two brush strokes, repaired a river and a sword and fought some and saved a village from being forever locked away in a bloated fruit. It's all good stuff.

    I'll need to try it with Move; the pad is all good, but painting is slightly awkward with it.

    So anyway, the intro is long and the story in it is rather random, but it's well worth sitting through and within the first hour of the game you will have played for over 40 minutes and THAT would be a good time to decide whether you like the game or not.

    I think I'm giving up with Quantum Conundrum. I've really enjoyed it up until now, but I'm on a room that v been trying for weeks, and the platforming is doing my head in. I've got a huge backlog at the moment and life's too short, so I think I'll pass on it and delete it from my HDD.

    @DarkSpaceDS Thing is for me I go into uncharted and I want drake to live, I go into a mario game and I couldn't care less about him and I seem to end up always wanting him to die. I just can't get into the game, or any mario game and truth be told Nintendo games in general.

    @DarkSpaceDS And mario isn't? How about all those goombas he's stomped on over the years, most games involve killing, difference is at least drake actual is likeable and has a personality.

    At least Drake does his job, finding treasures and shit.

    I ain't seen Mario do a single plumbing job in my fucking life, the lazy cunt.

    @DarkSpaceDS I never said it was okay, I just fail to see why I should criticise drake for killing hundred when mario kills hundreds as well. They both kill difference is drake is funny, likeable person whereas mario has no personality of any kind.

    I always felt he has quite a well defined personality in the Paper Mario and Mario & Luigi games.

    I recently played through MGS4 again after nearly 4 years to collect some trophies and still think the game is great to play and experience. I remember doing at least 10 playthroughs back in my gaming heyday of 2008 to get every single emblem and fully unlock everything. I do feel rather fatigued now though and I've now discovered that I have to do it all over again to get the platinum trophy. Fuck that man! This has to be one of the biggest grinds in gaming history. I could perhaps tolerate another Big Boss emblem playthrough if there was a trophy for it, but to unlock every single emblem? AGAIN?! Seriously fuck off with that shit developers!

    I've unlocked 88% of trophies and leaving it at that. No way do I have the time or patience to go through that game another 8 times these days. I've played MGS4 to death now so will patiently wait for MGS5 instead. I've near permanently abandoned MGS4 now I think. I've already finished it loads of times and my latest playthrough confirms I have no real desire to replay it in the future. The ludicrous trophy list, whilst not essential, further strengthens my decision.

    Why on earth does it matter that Mario has no personality? You're not playing those games for the deep characterisation.

    Neither Mario or Drake are real enough to apply any real world thinking to their actions. Uncharted is Indiana Jones. Everyone Drake shoots is unquestionably asking for it. They're all undoubtedly child traffickers, rapists, murderers, and Loose Women viewers.

    very well put. I was trying to think of what to say but you summed out up perfectly.

    Agreed.

    Is anyone else getting a bit bored with remastered games? Read my thoughts!

    Hitman: Absolution

    Played for the first mission and realised I can't be arsed playing digital hide and seek.

    Shit mission, most likely is a shit game.

    @Progguitarist your opinion but I love the series. Did you use disguises at all or anything like that? I guess part of the appeal is the sort of hide and seek nature and observing what patterns the people do in order to adapt. That first mission you were on, I drugged the chef and the top security officer to steal there clothes for example. One of many options I presume. But hey, don't have to like it! :D

    I had a disguise but might as well have not. Apparently if you get too close to guards, they can see through it anyway.

    It was a freebie on PS plus so nothing lost.

    Not my kind of game. Too much fiddly shit.

    I'm with you on that one. I thought Hitman Absolution was fiddly and shit.

    They took the good parts of Blood Money, prettied them up a bit, and then bound it all together with a bucket of shit. The padding is unnecessary and downright frustrating - I think that was the worst part, aside from the "pull your hat down conspicuously (or shield your face with your hands) and you're invisible!" meter.

    I gave up after being confronted with level after level of linear dullness. Hitman is all about the relative freedom, the multitudinous paths and methods at your disposal, and the sandbox level structure.

    Absolution gives you a taste of that, and then forces you to play a much shittier game (escape 'em up/ corridor shooter) for no discernible reason.

    Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate

    A truly fantastic game that I struggle to find any glaring fault with, but after 120+ hours and having rised only to a lowly rank 7 there is little light at the end. I dont fancy dedicating months of my life to one game, no matter how good, high time for tatty bye I think.

    Paper Mario Sticker Star

    I hate the whole sticker system. Made it to world 1-6 and I'm actually avoiding the battles as there is no actual reward for doing them. I miss the companion characters from the previous games too.

    My perseverance surprises me. I had all but given up on Borderlands 2 (despite adoring the first) as it was a grindy mess imo.

    I've played a couple more hours this week and it's going OK but it's not the sort of game that I want to play compulsively for hours on end.

    It's very grindy, the humour is ok (not as good as the first imo again) and it's over hard in certain areas.

    I know there is a big pot of happiness waiting for me to finish it but I'm not sure when that will be. I bought it on release and have just got to the bit after attacking Jack's city

    I'm either really forgetful or it goes to show how memorable that area was that I can't remember what the fuck it was called!

    So far a 5/6 at best and it's a real drag :(

    REALLY benefits from multiplayer co-op with buddies (like most games) but it helps to mask the grindyness

    It's not easy to find happiness in ourselves, and it's not possible to find it elsewhere.
