I like it, yeah. I'd recommend you to grab it. It must be really cheap now.
It's abit of your typical hack and slash style game, if you get what I mean. And it's a little weird, those Japanese guys like that weird stuff But, it is a very good game in my opinion. I'd say definitely give it a try anyway. I hear they are brining out a second one but exclusive to Wii so it most likely won't be great.
I actually missed the boat on 'Bayonetta' but was considering picking it up recently, but went with 'Borderlands' instead. Are you vouching for it?
I'm the same way with games nowadays - I usually wait a while for the hype and price to come down then I'll bite the bullet and buy it. I save a sh*tload of money that way buying mint condition games from ebay and amazon months after their release, and I lose no entertainmnt value because I'm constantly playing catch up on older titles I intentionally missed out on.
I'm also a HUGE fan of the 'Metal Gear' series. That series is always one of my "go to" series when it comes to the debate of whether or not video games should be considered art. I don't consider all video games to be art, but a select few like the MGS series, Shadow of the Colossus, Ico, select Zelda titles, and a few others I do consider works of art.
Kojima is a masterful storyteller and Konami is one of my favorite companies.
You need to cop 'Borderlands' whenever you get spare time, the first one is pretty cheap now and you'll definitely get your money out of it. If you like shooters and RPGs you'll be right at home in level grinding, headshot getting heaven.
Used to be a big time gamer when I was a lot younger, the year you were born I was in my prime. Played a lot more in the 90's than I do now also.
I'm one of those people who just hasn't outgrown it. But I don't get much time these days. Work's hectic most of the year so it's difficult. Can't wait to retire and then I'll have more time
I still have all my consoles, everything you named I still have. Plus my PS1, PS3 and Megadrive etc I even have my Atari Most of those just gathering dust now though. I still occasionally put in a PS1 game into my PS3 if I'm bored and feel like re-living MGS1 or Abe's Oddesy or something
I can't stand the Fight Night series. Haven't really enjoyed them since the KO Kings games. I hate the fact they try and base the game around "realism" yet is so so far from being a realistic sim. I can't handle it.
Dark Souls and Skyrim both awesome games. Haven't had chance to play Borderlands yet but I hear that's quite good too.
My first 360 fried over 2 years ago, and I waited until the slim one came out to jump back onboard since they fixed the RROD issue. In that time I missed out on a sh*tload of great games that are cheap as hell now, so I'm playing catch up.
