SEGA appreciated it. RIP Bizarre Creations.
13 (I think) - Amazing Spider-Man (PS3) - beat this today. I liked it more than Edge of Time, but not as much as Shattered Dimensions, Spidey 2, or especially Ultimate Spider-Man. Really great end credits song though.

15) Tiny & Big: Grandpa's Leftovers- Short little thing, but it's really fun to play around with the cutting mechanic. The giant ruins felt nice and crumbly, with tons of stuff to slice up and move around in order to clear a path. They're planning on making this episodic, and I really hope to see another one or two in the series.
13) Mazan: Flash of the Blade (Arc) Scored around 280K. It's Namco's answer to Konami's Tsurugi, using a sword as the controller. There's a fair learning curve with proper sword alignment at first- you have to line up a certain exact way within the sensor area to register. After that's dealt with, there's great hack-n-slash fun to be had here. A Parry & Slash system allows you to stagger attacking enemies.
14) Title Fight (Arc) : Sega boxing game from 1992, like a 32-bit Super Punch Out with a cool twin stick control system. Played as George Louisianna, and got a 1CC without being knocked down (getting knocked down shows a wavery first-person view of a ref giving the ten-count).
15) Jurassic Park III (Arc) : 998,000. One continue very late in the game. The escape button is a cool feature, used to back away from large dinosaur bosses if they get too close. A lot of the scoring in JP3 comes from critical hits.
PlayStation Move does what Kinect Kinnot.
Finished in 2013: 10 games (360:1, PC: 6, Gen: 1, AC: 1, PSP: 1)
Spec Ops: The Line
I know you've all probably seen the commercials and written this off as Generic Third-Person Military Shooter: The Line, but there's some incredible storytelling buried underneath the marketing.
Sure, the gameplay is nothing to write home about. It starts off innocently enough with some strictly vanilla third person combat and a couple of "omg sandstorm" gimmicks but it quickly enters Apocalypse Now territory as you see the main character's sanity unravel.
It's funny, Yahtzee just put up a review of this game, saying the exact same thing that the game is worth playing for that story. That has me pretty interested!
Yeah, I just watched that and he really hit the nail on the head. My interest piqued when they talked about it twice in a row on the Giant Bombcast and the first week they were all like "eh it seems like your run of the mill shooter but with more 'war is hell' moments", but then the next week they all hit the big turning point in the story and agreed that it was worth playing.
I wouldn't pay full price for it but it makes a great rental/steam-sale pick.
Also I played through it on easy because I knew that the gameplay wasn't going to give me any satisfaction, and I think it was a good choice.

Very cool. I didn't realize it was third person. That plus the story puts this right on my radar. Steam sale please.
