1954 Alcatraz – PC

An average point and click adventure game as the score would suggest. I thought the voice acting was probably the highlight. Didn’t really get stuck at any point from beginning to end. Had 1 hard crash.

According to GoG Galaxy - Play time was 11h 26min

5/10

I just started it, and while it plays great, and is quite funny, I’m a little over whelmed at how many characters.  And considering the stabs lucas arts developers have taken at sierra over the years for silly puzzle design, this game is almost as egregious in it’s puzzles.  Fun time though.

Replayed Uncharted 1&2

Still fun although the Blue guys at the end of 2 are stall a pain in the ass.

     

An adventure game is nothing more than a good story set with engaging puzzles that fit seamlessly in with the story and the characters, and looks and sounds beautiful.

‘congrats Lucien!  I really love parts of Uncharted.  I just wish I could skip all of the shooting people behind waist-high walls.  I’ve been meaning to boot these up again, as I’ve never beaten any of them.

I beat the Wii port of the Gamecube Remake of Resident Evil 1!  Now all I have to do is beat RE 2, and 3, and Code: veronica, and zero, and 4, and revelations and revelations 2, and then RESI 2 Remake, and then…. jesus christ.

Ironically, if you had been into the FF games and played the original FF7 you probably would not have enjoyed the remake as much. That is what I got from the fans.

Rise of the Tomb Raider

A bit difficult to rate. The environments are gorgeous, the controls and gameplay are just fun and it just feels natural. But the very silly and bad story is a huge let down. At the beginning I gave it the benefit of the doubt and thought the story might be decent but they keep overusing clichés, the characters are not well drawn out (even after collecting as many recordings as you can)and everyone keeps passing the idiot ball around. I’m very suprised this was written by Terry Pratchett’s daughter and hope it’s this bad because of committee writing and not due to her lack of talent.

Once I got to the ending, I just no longer felt like replaying or exploring unexplored caves because the story had killed it for me. This was the first tomb raider I actually played more than 30 minutes so I’m not sure if awful stories are just a characteristic of the series.

I would rate it 4/5 for the first few hours and then 2/5 once finishing the game due to the story.

I’ve played and beat FF’s 1, 2, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10.  But still playing through 12, 15, 13, the spin off etc.  Lots of great games in there!

I agree with the overall consensus that FF7 is possibly one of the best games ever made, although I have to admit 8 is in fact my favorite one.

I only played the demo the remake, and I was really excited.  I’m bad at action games in general, but this game seemed like the action will be challenging, but with enough strategy it’ll be possible to account for my bad action skills.

I look forward to playing it, but I’m not in a hurry.  I figure I may as just wait until the entire ff7 saga is finished and then buy whatever collector’s edition comes out then.  I did go back and beat the original recently in preparation for the new one.

I think the biggest thing that turns people off is not necessarily the ATB gauge, but that at the beginning of the game, the gauge fills painfully slow, and you usually only have like an attack and one spell, so of course it drags a bit.  Later on your speed/Agility stat can be raised, and the ATB gauge will fill faster, combined with the expanded skill set, the original really picks up after you leave midgar.

So I just beat Uncharted 1 for the first time.  Good game I guess.  Certainly a fresh take on the tomb raider type of games.  Wish there was less shooting parts.  Certainly would have been impressive in 2007.

Unfortunately in 2007, I was sitting around playing Final Fantasy Tactics for the millionth time, so I never played uncharted until now.  I remember just weeks of my life where outside of work I only played tactics.  To this day, I’m kind of scared to play it again because I don’t want to get sucked into it and obsessed again.

EDIT:  Are the new tomb raider games kind of like uncharted?  I have not played them yet, but thinking about getting them if they are as cheap.  (uncharted was like 90 cents at the store)
