Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified Features for PS Vita

On: PS Vita

I've come to the conclusion that I'll only care about the PS4 and next Xbox if they offer a new version of Football Manager to play. They won't, and I am really excited about both the new consoles, but FM is the only game I'm playing at the moment. I've now won everything as Barcelona, doing the quadruple in one season - a season which included a 9-1 Champions League final victory over Real Madrid and a mammoth 25-point gap at the top of the league. I think I can say this with the evidence to back it up: I'm a big deal.

I'm tempted to pick up Ni No Kuni at the weekend, and I still want to play DmC, so who knows, maybe I'll have something else to talk about next week.

Well, that was quick. I would say that it only took 60 minutes for the credits to roll on Declassified, but that would be a lie. Not because it took me any longer to finish (it genuinely is that short, if not less so), but because there aren't any credits in Black Ops Declassified. Perhaps Nihilistic (or nStigate as it's now called) was so embarrassed by what it had created, it thought it best to spare any further blushes by naming individuals.

Instead, then, after beating the 'campaign' and blasting away Daddy Menendez (don't ask, BLOPS 2 fans - it's nowhere near as interesting as it may sound), rather than offer any type of ending cinematic, or even a fade to black, the game simply presents players with two options: 'Replay Operation' or 'Return To Menu'. 'Return To Vendor', I feel, would have made for a far more appealing alternative.

I'm not usually a fan of blood and guts, but all things considered it's been a grizzly week. Nellis taught me how to play Chivalry (and murdered me countless times in the process) and I got stuck into Surgeon Simulator 2013 and repeatedly failed to perform an adequate heart transplant. Smashing up ribs with a hammer is great fun, even if I can't seem to get further than that.

The final game I've been playing this week is the classic Theme Hospital, which I fired up for a bit of Extended Play Classics. Pop back to the site on Sunday to check out my NHS-inspired adventures. Expect useless architectural planning, gigantic toilets, and a healthy quantity of avoidable deaths.

I loved Burnout Paradise but my free trail of it ran out and I couldn't really spare the £20 then I was forced to delete the save file for space a while ago so think the intention of eventually buying it and continuing is fading quickly.

I really love the Ratchet and Clank games too, I love the humor and it's just a lot of fun. I'd even play A Crack in Time again if I could ever get back from my sister's.

I've just been playing Skyrim non stop. I liked the twist in the Brotherhood quests and I'm currently attempting to do the city influence quests for the Thieves Guild. After that I've just got to do the Civil War quests and then I've got my first platinum baby! Only over 400 hours to get it. :)

Passed the 100 hour mark on Skyrim now but starting to slightly feel like I need to have a rest from it and play something else.

On the Vita I've played a lot of NFS Most Wanted and really enjoying it.

yeah the single biggest achievement of the game is that you can pretty much do what you want and still progress at an even rate, has the best lvl grind curve i've ever seen. I stopped crafting though, got too expensive :) I just buy all my gear from the TP with the money I saved from not crafting lol

@Endless, I'm not surprised, I often find myself meandering of towards something shiny or heading through a random portal to an entirely new starting area, I'm spending quite a bit of time crafting/ looking for crafting supplies too, it's nice to be able to do your own thing and not have to worry about what everyone else is doing.

@Njeezy I reached 80 a few weeks back and still havent finished my story missions! They are exceptionally easy XP though.

most of my time is spent playing Guild Wars 2 now i'm at the level cap i've switched my focus to PvP, though I still enjoy me some WvW and dungeons. Did my first Fractals of the Mists run the other and man do those things take a long time! I doubt i'll be doing too many of those. Still plenty of live left in the old girl yet!

I've also had a smattering of F1 Race Stars and DMC Though they are mainly just to break up my session of GW2 :) Had a bash at LEGO Star Wars 3: The Clone Wars today too, which is just as much fun as the older ones, but as it's mainly based on the clone wars animated series I only have some form of idea whats going on, so a lot of the humour is lost.

I'm making pretty good progress in Guild Wars 2 although I am massively neglecting my characters story line and Griffball has been put into rotation in halo 4 so I've been getting back into some proper e sporting.

Some Trackmania Nation Forever, Dota 2 and AC3. Not much that particularly noteworthy, but it's January still, things will pick up soon.

NFSMW wasn't my cup of tea.

Been playing FIFA a lot recently and Hitman HD Trilogy today. Totally forgot how annoying St Petersburg mission really is on Hitman 2: Silent Assassin!

Seconded PB - NFSMW is really good, but it isn't Burnout Paradise! Still, it's pretty much all I'm playing except FTL in a clear PS3/Vita and PC divide.

Tempted by Sonic Racing - worth grabbing?

Sonic Racing Tramsformed on PS Vita, which I picked up with some points from GAME. NFS: Most Wanted on Vita and on PS3 because I've been meaning to get back on that and the recent threads reminded me to do it. I do like the game, but the fact that it's Criterion makes me just want it to be more like Burnout Paradise.

Ratchet and Clank: Q Force is still surprising me by how fun it is, but I do wish they'd hurry up and bring out the free Vita version so I can play on the go.

Oh, and a litte game called Black Ops 2 which I've been enjoying online a lot more than I thought I would.

Life is Crime for me, third or fourth week running. I tried out Life is Magic when it hit the UK Play Store but it was a big drain on my HTC Desire C's battery, so sticking with Life is Crime for now.

Some idea of how this game has its hooks in me: I taught myself to use a programmable spreadsheet to keep track of locations, friends, enemies, points differences, landmarks, territories and nationalities so I can see instantly where to go, who to hit, who to avoid, what areas to work on.

I've also expanded from Spain across into France. Hopefully I'll get around to invading Germany and Eastern Europe territories this week, but yet to find any players from those locations.

My income grows, my powers increase: veni, vidi, whacki.

I really liked The Darkness 2 and thought it was much better than the first one. The highlight of the game for me was Jackie's cutscenes at the end of the levels where he's talking about his past and how it comes into play with what he has now become. All the different upgrades, kills and weapons were also fantastic and very imaginative.


I have finished off Call of Duty 2 on the 360 after being on my to do list since 2006, very dated now of course but still has it's moments and is better than Black Ops 2 and MW3.
I also did Heavy Rain and I hate it even more now than the first time I played it. I also compared it to Fahrenheit which I still have a copy on Xbox 1 which I breifly played and that is better than Heavy Rain as well, all in all I really do think Heavy Rain was a massive step backwards for David Cage.
I think he tried to create tension and drama in the game but it didn't help when cut scenes don't properly go with your earlier decisions, poor characters and nevermind a poor plot with plot holes.
It tried to be what The Walking Dead ended up being but Heavy Rain fails bad and is one of the most overrated games I have ever played.

Also started the Family Guy game on PS3 and I really like it so far, good humour from the show and good bosses as well as a lot of different enemies and nods to the show.

Looking forward to watching the Theme Hospital video - started playing that myself a few months back, when all the old Bullfrog titles had a significant discount on GoodOldGames.com...

This week I've carried on with The Darkness II, which was very short, and I didn't like the changes to the Darklings and Blackhole summoning powers from the first game. The implementation of the former (i.e. you have one single beastie who is always with you), really was terrible. And the ending? Predicted within 30 minutes of starting the game. The Vendettas mode is... interesting padding, but do think some of the unique weapons in there could have made it across into the single player campaign. All in all, a solid 6.5/10 - ok, but could have done a lot better.

MineCraft: 360 Edition's latest bug squishing update guarantees a Netherfortress, Blaze Spawner and Nether Wort (vital to making potions) in any newly generated world... which is something my old one was missing. Going to hold off starting another new world until the next big update (jungles, zombie sieges, and the like) hits - which hopefully won't be too long.

Last night I picked up a cheap copy of A Game of Dwarves, which looks like a cross between The Sims and Dungeon Keeper (albeit with a clean theme... yeah, yeah, I know...), which might hopefully tide me over until War for the Overworld hits. Really glad to see this genre trying to make a comeback...
