Started a new playthrough of Mass Effect 2 on Insanity. These battles are a lot harder than I imagined...

Meh, it aint worth the trouble at the moment. If it ever does get full then I'll think about it. But for now I might as well fill up my 360's HDD. It's still got tons of room.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

^ I'm basically the same, only it's the other way 'round. PS3's at 320 gigs and nowhere near half full, whereas my 360 still has a shitty 20 gig drive (plus 14 or so gigs on a dedicated USB flashdrive).

Reinstalled Elite Force. It's been a while so thought I'd take it for another spin

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I finally started Dead Space 2! I'm playing on the easiest setting because I'm terrible but I still almost got killed by the first boss because I was too stupid to figure out I should be shooting his feet! I have a real crappy time aiming the stasis this time; was it a tight beam like that in the first game? I don't remember having to aim that carefully in the first game.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I just started playing F.E.A.R. 3 tonight. I'm enjoying myself so far--the first two levels offer some pretty high-intensity gun battles. Though the game seems to have lost a lot of the spooky atmosphere that made the first one so memorable.

I've just started Dead Space (I'm... on a mission to play/read/watch myself through everything Dead Space related ) on medium and it's going very well at the moment (couple of hours in).

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I'm about 40% into Dead Space 2 already (got a weekend to kill with nothing better to do, lol) and I think it's better than the first one. I am disappointed there aren't more non-scary parts though, I had read that there would be sections where you're in populated areas with sane living people

To be fair, sane living people in the Dead Space 'verse are few and far between

Huh. Well, that was quick.

F.E.A.R. 3 has a pretty short single-player campaign. That seems to be because it's designed to be replayed: finishing the campaign once as the Point Man unlocks a second character, the ghost of Paxton Fettel. And you can play co-op, if you can find a second player. I haven't had any luck so far.

On the good side: this game does feature some very good shooting action. And it reveals the personal histories of the game's protagonists. And it does recapture some of the first game's spooky atmosphere, at times. And the scenes where you get to pilot a mech are fun as always.

But on the bad side: the campaign is short, as I said. And since it seems to have been designed for co-op play, it's also pretty tough. I usually play single-player shooters on the Medium difficulty level, but I had to dial this down to Easy: the boss battles were kicking my ass.

And to top it off, the game has some very strange graphical issues--your movement seems to stutter quite frequently, even if you turn down the video settings. The game never becomes unplayable, but it's annoying. The developers have released an update that was supposed to fix this issue, but it persists on my machine. This is not the sort of problem I expect to find with a finished game that cost me fifty bucks.

Funny that we're all playing Dead Space 2. And yeah, F.E.A.R. 3's campaign is pretty short, but it's fun to do in coop!

I've been playing a lot of LA Noire. Its pretty fun, even if trying to figure out if people are lying or not can be hard at times.
