23. Borderlands The Pre-Sequel: Claptastic Voyage (PC)

The expansion to Pre-Sequel was a heck of a lot of fun. It added another ~6 hrs to the game, had some very cool visuals and funny writing. It's not Tiny Tina's... but not much is. But it was def great and I'd recommend it. I actually thought that the ending to this one made for a cooler segue into BL2 than the base game did.

I have seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack drones on fire off the shores of a memory. I watched pixels glittering in the darkness. All those moments...lost...like Claptrap in a sea of dead CL4P-TP units.

It's too bad he lives.

Claptastic Voyage is a fusion of Fantastic Voyage and Tron in an attempt to explain why Claptrap is the last of his kind and the way he is, but with seriously fewer cat photos and disco balls than I was expecting. It fits surprisingly well with things, despite not being completely as goofy as I was expecting...though it was still goofy. Painting MINAC bright pink and converting her cannon into a bubble-blower was certainly memorable.

In terms of gameplay, its more of the same for Borderlands, though with some added oddities in the glitch weapons, which have an error code associated with them that occasionally causes them to freak out and exhibit bizarre behavior. How bizarre? Well, I have an assault rifle that suddenly shoots shotgun shells for one. It makes for a fun toy. Beyond that, it's more of what I have come to expect from Borderlands expansions, but not something that stands out against, say, Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep, which is still one of the best expansions I have ever played. It is nice to have it as a bridge between the first and second run of the game.

But that final boss is a nightmare.

OMG, seriously. It was such a weird contrast to like... everything before it. Running through the game and feeling in control; being able to manage all other bosses w/ minimal (or no) deaths prior and then you get to him and it's like you're dying every 90 seconds. Brutal.

It's like how your daughter helps you play Sonic, except Noise is more detrimental to the people he plays with.

Yeah, Fastbilly, noise, and I tend to get together via Steam on Thursday night to play games with a few other friends of ours.

My wife goes out with her friends on Thursday nights, so I started up a gaming night with my college buddies who use to game every Friday. Noise showed up one night and wont leave...no matter how many trains we throw at him.

Truth be told, I am more of hindrance than he is most games.

21.Triple Triad (Mobile)

Triple Triad - So yesterday Square Enix unveiled Triple Triad for mobile devices. The game offers a single player campaign where you fight enemies all in three different difficulty levels as you gain cards, build decks and navigate the varying rulesets for card superiority.

With that being said, I completed the single player campaign completely, beating every enemy at every difficulty level and have played a few online matches. The problem with the online matches is that you must use Google play for matchmaking and can not play against friends as there is no integrated friends list through Square Enix's account system. Add to it, you set up the rules and do matchmaking based off of that. What makes this difficult is that there are 5 different rules you can set at a time and a large amount of rules to choose from, making matchmaking really difficult to find a match. If you set no rules, google will tell you that you are looking for too large of a playerbase and to try back again, making you have to pick rules and limiting who you play against.

Took me about 10-15 minutes to find a match. What a pain!

All in all, the game is still fun, the rules make things really strategic and interesting and the cards themselves are really fun, taking characters, enemies and memorable moments throughout the entire Final Fantasy franchise. For instance, one of my most powerful cards is the Opera from Final Fantasy VI.

Still, the game uses an energy system like a lot of social games, refilling an energy crystal one every half an hour, but the games last less than 5 minutes, so you tend to be done for 2 and a half hours in less than 10 minutes.
