About the title: Takes place after the time traveling marine assisted the Star Fox team in their struggle in the Outworld-Lylat war, called by a dragon king who forced Earthrealm and Edenia's fiercest (OIA agents, a millenia aged princess that still looks in her twenties, an action-movie star, and renegade Shaolin) warriors against them...
So anyway, here's what I'm playing now for those interested:
TimeSplitters: Future Perfect (PS2)- Kind of weird how I'm palying this on the PS2 after being so used to playing TimeSplitters 2 on the GameCube (which was fantastic), also add the fact that the development team did two famous N64 FPS' when they were at Rare:
But anyway, thus far in the single-player campaign (admittedly playing on easy, but that's the thing about Rare/Free Radical FPS, they know how to kick your ass in normal and harder difficulties, so I got to warm up), I got to "What Lies Beneath (1994)" and I think I already like it more than the second game due to the fact that it focuses more on Cortez himself, rather than his transformations. I'll admit, Jo-Beth Casey is annoying (I just dealt with Harley Quinn's nonsense in Batman: Arkham City, so don't push it), but working with Harry Tipper and Captain Ash (both of whom Cortez transformed into in TS2) was a riot.
Also did some rounds in Arcade League and I'm liking it as much as I did in the previous installment, but in an Assault mission, I can't figure out how to destroy the final core in this "Cyber-Chimp" base (yeah, despite the Mature ratings, it's still as whacked up as the last game).
Street Fighter X Mega Man version 2 (PC)- I know this game wasn't too highly regarded, but I like it and have downloaded the first version on launch day. It was flawed, but luckily the second version fixes a couple gripes I had with the first version. Like when the controls for the stage select screen we're slippery (while playing with an XBOX 360 controller, keyboards had no problems however), now have been tightened up, and added a password system (and yes, it works, tested it out after I beat Rolento and Chun Li). The game is still free on Capcom-Unity.
I might actually beat it this time.
So, that's what I've been playing (outside of extra stuff in LEGO Lord of the Rings for 360).
Ugh, if there's one shooter series that I will never understand the love for it's TimeSplitters. For that matter, add Goldeneye and Perfect Dark as well. They felt outdated when they released and feel unplayable by today's standards. But people seem to love them. I just don't get it.
I might download SF x MM. It looks like an entertaining little game.
