Noobtoob's Gaming 101 2013
  • Hello all, anyone remember the Gaming 101? Fancy bringing it back again? I really enjoyed the experience of playing through Deus Ex with everyone else commenting and helping....

    Here's the list I had originally written up, but feel free to suggest anything else if you're interested.

    Ur-Quan Masters
    Alpha Protocol
    Mirror's Edge
    Shadows of the Damned
    LA Noire
    Assasin's Creed 2
    Red Faction: Guerilla
    Half Life 2
    Gemini Rue
    El Shaddai: Something of the Meta-something
    Kane & Lynch 2
    Far Cry 2
    Castlevania: Lords of Shadow
    Dead Space
    Rayman Origins
    Majin & the Foresaken Kingdom
    WH40K Space Marine

    I was thinking of going for July as the month for the 101, or maybe we could kick off mid-June for a 6-week run to the end of July?
  • Mirrors edge or alpha protocol sound good to me. I need an excuse to play either game.
  • I can't join for most of June and the beginning of July but here's my own list that I was thinking of:

    Kingdom of Amalur: Reckoning
    Max Payne 3
    Darkness 2
    Hitman: Absolution
    Sleeping Dogs
    Need for Speed: Most Wanted
    Spec Ops: The Line
    Doom 3
    Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen (includes full game right?)

    I think those games all offer something that we can enjoy and discuss and should be available relatively cheaply by now. :)
  • Definitely need to get this going again. I'll toss in some suggestions too.

    Doom 3
    Fallout: New Vegas
    Alice: Madness Returns
    Half-Life 2

    Pretty much anything really.
  • I'd recommend anything short. Has a better chance of everyone finishing.

    On the other hand... Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is one of my favorite games... :)
  • Didn't we already do Mirror's Edge?

    I agree with anything anyone else has listed. I'll play whatever.
  • I'm interested, summer break is about to start.
    Always wanted to try
    Spec ops
    Sleeping dogs
    Half life 2
    Mirrors edge

    Weeeeeell, we tried but I think the timing was no good. Could we revisit that? I quite liked the idea of that one, because we could do the time trial challenges after completing the main story.

    Either way, I agree a shorter game sounds good, just considering my own shoddy ability to finish the damn things...
  • Hmmm... was the timing bad, or does the game just really suck balls and nobody wanted to touch it?

    It's a mystery I guess. :p

    I guess if you choose Mirror's Edge I can always drop in for a moment to proclaim my undying hatred of it and then go back to something more worthwhile of my time like giving my arse hairs a perm.

    Possibly a little bit from column A, a little bit from column B.

    If you think I'm doing a video intro to that, you've got another thing coming!
  • I think calling a vote would be our best bet. Picking mirrors edge because what 2 of us want to play it isn't entirely fair. But dude if Mirrors Edge is chosen I challenge you to give it another shot with an open mind.
  • I'd really like to get back into Dark Souls at some point this summer, especially because I haven't finished the DLC. So that'd be great for July ('cos I can't join for June) and to finally see those who haven't gotten sucked in finally get stuck in! At this stage, you'd have all the help you'd ever need anyway. :) That, and Dark Souls 2 is out either this year or next year. Probably next year though.

Howdy, Stranger!
