I'm in Mexico now, and after a few missions I have just broken the Hungarian Half-bred. Nice horse. I think I'll keep it.

But what's really good is the story, not so much the personal story of John Marston, which is not new material at all, but the surrounding story, the Old West that is becoming not so Old, the politics involved in the change and development of it, the little details in the side characters (De Santa is uncannily similar to Tony Montana, obviously a homage ),the whole "feel" of it is really cool. I can see a lot of work has gone into it.

^ Yeah that's also what I really enjoyed about the game. It just feels so... authentic and alive.

Anyway, I got Sports Champions and F1 2010 a few days ago, so I've been playing both games quite a bit lately.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Having only recently purchased a PS3 after many years of absence from gaming, I"m catching up on games too. Currently I'm hacking away at Bioshock on "medium" difficulty (already beat it on "easy"). I've just arrived at Arcadia. MAN are Big Daddies harder to kill now!

Just don't play 2 then 1 because number 1 might annoy you more than it needs to. Uncharted 2 is probably the most improved gaming sequel ever and is my 3rd favourite game of all time...

I don't even own a PS3 but thank god my friend did (U2 was first PS3 game I ever played), superb game

^ Yeah considering that U1 is still a great game, and U2 is a huge improvement over U1, that really says something about how good U2 is.

Uncharted 2 is one of the best gaming experiences I've had. Beautiful art direction, awesome production values, and engaging gameplay. A true example of what the PS3 is capable of.

^ No problem. Did you watch the "Fortune favors the bold" trailer from Gamescom? I still keep that one on my PS3 because it's so awesome.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Playing through PoP:TFS just made me almost blow a gasket...

One of the most frustrating moments, A regular jump but for somereason he kept falling short. I did the same thing a dozen times and eventually he made the grab to a swinging pole, yet I did nothing different from the previous 11 attempts.

You Tube clip

1:15-1:25

Someone at Ubi didn't check their sections properly when making that little scene .

I'm planning on a bad run at Dragon Age Origins similar in style to some of the runs people have mentioned through Mass effect.

Yeah, I played 2 and then 1.

Didn't take away from my enjoyment of the storyline and characters, but some of the controls (six-axis grenades?!?!?!) were annoying and the bad guys took too long to kill. They definitely learned from making the first game.

I think Uncharted 2 has the best player control I've ever experienced.
