    whats come out recently that's been worth playing?

    i haven't been keeping up with releases for the last few months, so i'm guessing i've missed alot.

    i'm not much a fan of RPGs so unless it's something that's insanely epic and has little grindan' i'm not interested.


    thanks [​IMG]

    In roughly chronological order:
    • Bangai-O Spirits shames the good name of Bangai-O, but people seem to love it.
    • I hate N+ and hope everyone behind it dies, but it's pretty popular.
    • Commando: Steel Disaster is a decent Metal Slug clone.
    • Final Fantasy IV is Final Fantasy IV.
    • A lot of people were excited about Star Wars: The Force Unleashed before release, didn't play it myself.
    • Kirby Super Star Ultra is the best Kirby game of all time. Better than the original.
    • Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood is supposed to be decent, but not as great as was hoped. Haven't played it.
    • Disgaea DS is Disgaea ... on DS. If you like Disgaea, go for it.
    • Time Hollow is a great (but short) point and click adventure.
    • Line Rider 2: Unbound got a lot of hype, but everybody hated it on release. I enjoy it, but it's not the kind of game you can get engrossed in.
    • People love Zubo for some reason. I think it's horrible crap, but hey.
    That'll do for now.

    Apart from those games, the only one I can think of is Spore Creatures and Dragon Quest 4 though it is an RPG.

    Spore Creatures was quite bad in my opinion. I couldn't play it for more that 1 hour.

    I enjoyed Spore Creatures, although it's worth noting that I beat it in a day. It gets a lot more enjoyable when you finish it and can start using cheats. Before that, you're kind of forced to use the "best parts" available to you, so there's not really much of an option for customisation. Once you're invincible, though, it doesn't matter so much if you use low-defense but cool-looking parts to build your creature.

    The main game is hugely linear, and besides that the only other thing to do is collect stuff, so if neither of these interest you, give it a miss. I have no problem with linearity, though, and I can stand collecting stuff if it means I can make my creature look cooler.

    Hrm... I don't think he meant that personally he likes those games, but rather that they had come out recently. Spiderman WoS is worth playing, definitely, maybe some CoD WaW. I've been playing the new Pokemon Ranger myself, although I can't see myself putting a LOT of hours into it.
