I’ve played a lot of The Old Republic since I first got my early access. I’ve managed to reach level 35 and am now part-way through Chapter 2 of the Sith Warrior storyline. I’ve been granted the title of Sith Lord, have my own starship and 5 different companions. I’ve loved every minute  of it, and it’s been great really digging into an MMO like this again. Though I did enjoy my time with EVE and APB (and I will continue to play this, to some capacity) I just haven’t been sunk in to this extent since World of Warcraft. I’ve done lots of bonus missions, daily Space Combat missions and generally as much of the side planet quests as I want to. I’ve still got a lot that I’ve not experienced on certain planets (I’ve not managed to find many Holocrons or Datacrons as of yet..) but I can’t wait to go back and explore these when I decide to give the story a break.

Though that is becoming increasingly hard to do, as this is one of the best story lines in a game I’ve experienced in a long time, and it’s in an MMO.

WARNING: Here be Spoilers! I talk about events in the Sith Warrior Storyline.

The final, and probably most loved personally, of the games I’m blogging about in this series has lore that has been set up since the 80’s. It gave birth to a lot of games in both table top and video game variety. It’s still popular to this day, and I personally am still a collector. The game itself was something I had waited for, I had followed it since it’s announcement and I was eager to play it for the first time. After doing so, it wasn’t just my favourite game of that universe, but one of my favourite games of the entire year and one of my favourite Third-Person Action titles. Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine.

For my second blog about the Underrated games of this year, I’ve decided to go for one that generally did well, but not as well as I believe it should have. It didn’t have as much success as it’s predecessor and I feel that this isn’t warranted. It improved over the original in many ways, the marketing campaign was large and fairly good. (Aside from the movie that came with it, which was frankly a disappointment.) However, even with favourable reviews and a general feeling that it was a great game, it’s fallen into the shadow of other games this year. The game I’m talking about, is Dead Space 2.

As I’ve mentioned before in this blog, it’s around the time of year that everyone picks their Games of the Year. Surely these are all deserved of the title and personally, I feel there have been a great deal of amazing games this year. There are also, however, games that will go past underrated and ignored, as there usually are. So I’m starting a series of blogs that will cover some of the games I felt should have had more success and more attention this year.

Today, I’ll talk about Shadows of the Damned, a third-person action game from Suda-51’s Grasshopper Productions and some other “horror” game names helping with the project.
