MAFIA starts out with scene of a cigarette being thrown, yes? If so, I need to replay that asap.

I beat MAFIA back in 2007 on PC. That game gets to be extremely hard at times and has wonky driving physics. It had an above average story though, and really impressive graphics for its time. It was a love hate thing for me.

I loved my characters in Saint's Row. Nothing beat Drag Queen Katy Perry wannabe, wearing nothing but a big deedely-bob and knee high boots. Lots of Cellulite and tattoos as well. Best character ever!

I approve.

Now try Phoenix and Pleiads when you have a chance (you most certainly own the compilations they appear on).

I'd be more willing to vote for her if she also sprayed opposing world leaders with feces from septic trucks.

It had its frustrating moments, but a good story, a few folks from The Sopranos providing voices, and the cool Freeride Extreme missions that you got after completing the single player mode.

It was quite an impressive game on PC for its time. And the story was way above average. The game felt authentic outside the wretched driving physics. That wouldn't have been so bad except driving was often mandatory. Like this "gem" of a mission:

NEVER FORGET

But the missions where you had to survive massive shootouts were always a blast.

This reminds me that I have Godfather and Scarface on Xbox and still haven't played them.

Metal Slug 3 (PS4)- With all trophies

Image

I don't know if I've ever beaten Metal Slug 3 before. The last level is such a drag and the game itself is pretty hard unless you've played it to death and know it like the back of your hand. I've always generally found Metal Slug games harder and more annoying to play than Contra games.

That said, this is a pretty good port. It has a save state feature and you can adjust difficulty or give yourself 99 lives. So there's really no excuse to not be able to beat this, and even the trophies aren't that tough due to the 99 lives and use of save states. And you gotta love cross save between this and the PS3/Vita versions

For whatever reason, I've found myself liking other Metal Slugs more than this one. The game just seems too long and it's very repetitive in a lot of areas. It's a bloated game.

But the whole series in general doesn't do much for me gameplaywise. Again, I prefer Contra's more methodical design. I've always loved the character designs and style of the Metal Slug series though. It outdoes most Contra games on the presentation front due to them being arcade games and looking and sounding like an arcade game should. As well as the overall wackiness and humor of the series.

So if you like MS3, you might want to pick this up. After releasing this, it seems a poll went up asking players if they wanted other Neo Geo games to come to Playstation systems. I voted for Sengoku III. A port for that game done similarly to this one would make me happy

I knew you were gonna bring up the race even before I clicked the spoiler tag. Did you know it got so difficult they released a patch that let you select a difficulty level? The version I played had that. I also dug up an old article possibly explaining the reason the developers made it so hard. That was an example of poor control there.

One of the toughest parts for me was the parking garage shootout near the end. But nearly everything I did in Saints Row took me back to Mafia, so many similarities.
