I popped in Battlefield: Bad Company 2. Seems pretty cool so far.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Finished Fallout 3! A very addictive game. The ending was a mite disappointing though it was fun following behind the giant robot.

That's the last of my new 360 games to play. I got some PS2 games for $5 each at Blockbuster; Ratchet and Clank Size Matters, Kingdom Hearts 2, and God of War 2.

I started Kingdom Hearts 1 but I found the controls to be very awkward and didn't understand how to do things or find things so I gave it up pretty quick. Does the second one have different controls and interface (I hope)?

I didn't play God of War 1. Would it hold up well to modern day standards? Not just the graphics but the controls and game-play.

I won't have much time to play over the next few weeks, but I'll definitely play some Halo: ODST while waiting for Reach to arrive from Amazon.co.uk

NHL 11
Fallout 3
Phantasy Star 4
Super Mario Galaxy
New Super Mario Bros Wii
Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion.
Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past

I can't sit and play one game constantly. I always have to keep a few games going at once otherwise I get bored of the game.

I played both GoW1 and GoW2 (as part of the GoW collection) for the first time earlier this year. Both games looked pretty good upscaled (especially GoW2). And yeah, GoW is still a good game. The the controls and game-play didn't really feel outdated. Now true, when you play GoW2 (or then GoW3), there's a lot of progress (especially going from 1 to 2). But if you play GoW first, you should be fine.

Just bought Red Dead Redemption, and I am hoping it doesn't suck.

No need to hope regarding Red Dead Redemption. That is one fantastic game.

Its a decent enough game but I prefer GTA IV because Red Deads just seems a little hollow in places and lacks direction. I know its a sandbox game but GTA just seemed to have not only a more engaging story/characters but the world felt more real.

Still its fun enough to worth playing and I am still to try out the multiplayer.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Well, it was a toss up between Red Dead Redemption and Transformers: The War for Cybertron. I kind of wanted a game that I really didn't need to pay much attention to and could play for 20 minutes at a time without worrying about what happens next. I figured Red Dead would work better for that.

You could get lost for hours in RDR without touching the main story. There's so much to do, and I actually spent a lot more time messing around in its world than I ever did in GTAIV.

Yeah, but that's what I mean. I could just wander around, maybe do a mission here and there, without worrying about the story. When I played Arhkam Asylum, I couldn't put it down because I was so excited about what would happen next. Red Dead I feel is the kind of game I could play for a little while without really caring about the story progression.

Yeah I definitely liked RDR more than GTA4.

Yeah, there's so many random events that occur, too, in both towns and out in the wilderness. You will end up caring about the story progression, though, I warn you, because it's that damn good. John Marston is a compelling protagonist.

I had a blast in GTAIV, but mainly just as a focus on the story progression. RDR, though, was definitely a step forward from what Rockstar did in GTAIV. In terms of world-building and main story, they really outdid themselves with RDR.

I'm even listening to the RDR sountrack right now, as I read for class. So good.
