I am playing F.E.A.R for the first time now that it is finally on Steam. I am also playing the original Final Fantasy on my cell phone.

I got Red Dead Redemption today. I've played it for a few hours so far and I'm really enjoying it, so I have a feeling I'll be playing it a lot in the next couple of weeks.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Super Mario Galaxy 2 is what I'm playing now. I'm not too far into the game, but I'm loving it so far. The challenge level is at just about the perfect level for someone who has played the first game. Yoshi appears very early on and can be used on Starship Mario anytime. The game is great about introducing moves/power-ups/items and giving the player a fun and practical use for them right away. Production values are on a par with the first game, which is just fine.

The story is the only drawback so far. The opening scene was so brief that they may as well have just had a text screen that told you to rescue the princess from Bowser's clutches. I don't play Mario games for plot, but I would rather have nothing than a scene that doesn't add something new or make sense on its own.

So the new Mario game is about Bowser kidnapping the Princess??? It's nice to see them taking the storyline in a fresh and exciting new direction.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I'm now to the fourth world (ignoring the cosmological nitpick that worlds should be in galaxies instead of the other way around). There has been a tremendous variety of settings, obstacles, and characters thus far. The boss of the third world is one of those that is challenging enough to take a few tries to beat but very satisfying once it happens. The fire flower is better this time around from how I remember it in the first Galaxy game, although you still have a time limit on it. The new power-ups for Mario and Yoshi are all excellent.

I'm playing Final Fantasy VII on my PSP, via PSN, and it's ruining my life. But it's really good.

Can't argue with that....


Even though I still need to eventually play part II, I think they're pretty inventive games....

How are you liking Alpha Protocol? I've been looking forward to that one for quite awhile.

I'm still getting my arse kicked in MW2 online, and working my way through Divinity II on the 360.
