ante, we both know that game devs have to resot to many game limitations. like those tables, boards and curtains thing...it looks lame but its not essential.
the problem with fear was monotomy...how can one play in offices for so long :P also scare factor diminishes when you realise that nothing can happen to our char when scary things appear.

Yes, like their imagination. How on earth companies still dare publish these pseudo realistic games :)

>the problem with fear was monotomy...

100% agree - I remember FEAR was somehow hyped game when it was published - now I'm wondering what's the fuzz all about.

>Razz also scare factor diminishes when you realise that nothing can happen to our char when scary things appear.

Yes, at some point you had to run from away from Sadako because the magical flames really hurt you (at the beginning of the game) but otherwise the "horror" elements are really lame.

Omg.. Most people I've known stop playing a game if they do not like it
(Of course if you're going to give an review on it, there's only one way)
(Or if someone points a gun at your head and force you to continue playing)

I was planning to return to the Sims 2 (I need someone to boss) but one of my brother's friend borrowed the game which belongs to my brother, several weeks ago, and it doesn't seem to be possble to get contact with his friend by phone, and he hasn't been really honest the last times he promised to deliver the game back...
So I'll problably have pay him a short visit...

Now the FEAR took an interesting twist - the fighting and survival is located in an abandoned building. Very fascinating surroundings I'd say. Maybe it has to do with the increased difficulty - now it's more challenging to stay alive than at the beginning.

I'd say that this part of the game looks very similar as the Gears of War. (David - try it again!)

Secret Files: Tunguska

Postby bigbluesky » Sun 13 May 2007 18:27

I am currently playing "Secret Files: Tunguska". I got it cause it reminded me a tad of Syberia, with the Russian mystery.

So far the graphics are nice and easy on the eyes and everything runs smoothly. The main character is a little annoying. The voice actress is familiar but her dialogue is a bit... eh, could use some work.

Has anyone played it? Please, no spoilers, I'm only on the 2nd Day.

Lego Star Wars II on Xbox 360. Very addictive and fun game. Can be frustrating from time to time but generally I like it.

am finishing The Longest Journey...
--> i liked it very much because of very interesting 3D grafics and story too...
nothing agressive with something(/message) inside to understand either... (i love so much sweet April Ryan and the 1st challenge with the boiler which is quite hard to solve...)
(Mika is now playing it... :) )

finishing as well The moment of Silence
The main character is a man... -> i would say i prefer a lot when a woman play the role... but... ^^
nevertheless, this game is very interesting too because it talks about the Internet Security and NSA listening to global electronic communications... hehe...

I tried to play Fahrenheit but could not reach the 2nd level into the toilets... :( seriouly -->
i wonder if this game is for adventure gamers or for "psychotic gamers"... i must say -> i don't want this game in my game collection anymore...

I'm now playing Ni.Bi.Ru
This game is a real adventure game... i have to say i appreciate it very much...
(the only disadventage is the character cannot run with double clic...)

Hugs
Pif ;)

Hey! I want that too! I was thinking about to buy it today when I was shopping. However I went and bought Crackdown for Xbox 360 - and now I suffer the moral hangover that this soulless game has caused in me. I need to get rid of it! :)

Hotel Dusk on the DS really impressed me, Phil. I was pleasantly surprised to see how the DS can offer unique experiences in gaming.

I baught first DS for Thomas but now with games like another code, hotel dusk or the Phoenix Wright adventures, it becomes for me an other manner to play than the PC
