Re: What games are you playing currently?

I've played about an hour of Alpha Protocol, and I'm enjoying it. I'm also playing ninja Gaiden Sigma. The camera controls aren't very good, but its fun to go around slicing up ninjas.

I've nearly finished DA2: Legacy, but have also taken Halo2 (PC) and Wolfenstein out for a quick spin this morning

How did you like it so far? (I don't really have the time to give it a try at the moment.)

Alpha Protocol has a lot of Obsidian jank, but is so much fun.

I'm enjoying it. Maps are at least a bit different to what we saw for the most part in DA2.

SOLD!

No, seriously. Totally sold me on that DLC.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I just got myself a PS3 on Friday, and have spent the past two days hooked on Uncharted; my little brother did convince me to start Ninja Gaiden Sigma (I was only wanting to play one game at a time) earlier this afternoon, but Uncharted is the game I'm more than likely going to be spending the most time with for the foresseable future.

I'm really enjoying the game's design, gameplay, and storyline, and can definitely see why it was recommended as a 'must-have' starter game for the system and why it garnered the critical praise that it did/has.

1. They are correct, the current hardware iteration of PS3s doesn't have backwards-compatibility in terms of being able to play PS2 games since there aren't enough people out there who actually demand such a feature (those who do usually still own a PS2 or first-generation PS3, and if they don't, PS2 are dirt-cheap nowadays).
The only thing that's a pain is having to have multiple machines hooked up (or, rather, climbing behind the set and changing the cables). I'm considering buying a first-generation PS3 as there are some available, but will they play the newest games?

2. Don't worry, you will be able to play all these games without access to the internet / the PlayStation Network.
That's good to hear. Once again referring to the fine print I was looking at a couple games that seemed to suggest you needed to be hooked up to the net to play them. (Again I know you do need it, obviously, for multiplayer and I assume there's probably a Warcraft-like game out there that's played over the PSN. But for LA Noir and that new Tomb Raider I'd like to be able to play "free as a bird" as it were. (I also hear rumor that GTA V might be a redo of San Andreas, which I just have to see based on how GTA IV reimagined Liberty City. The release of nuTomb Raider or GTA V will probably be what gets me to shell out for the PS3. Probably a week before Sony announces the PS4, of course!

Yes, they will.

I wouldn't advise going for an early PS3 model though. They are loud and generally lest stable (also they've generally run out of warranty by now) than current models. They also have significantly less hard drive space.

I'd recommend using a recent model PS2 and PS3. There are relatively cheap and highly comfortable technical solutions for switching between video input devices without climbing behind your TV set

Well, without online connectivity you are going to miss out on certain features, such as optional downloadable content or online leaderbords and the like.

You'll have no problems regarding actually playing the games' singleplayer components though Remember, a significant portion of current generation consoles isn't hooked up to the internet (yet). Publishers and developers are well aware of that!

Re: What games are you playing currently?

My brother bought Medal of Honor for Xbox on the cheap, and he let me borrow it. It's not bad. I'm enjoying the campaign, but the game plays similar to Battlefield (no surprise, considering DICE's involvement), which to me isn't as smooth or as fast as Call of Duty's gameplay (at least in Infinity Ward's entries, anyway).

That certainly fits the first-hand accounts of MoH's gameplay I've heard so far.

I'm still not convinced it's worth the purchase, maybe I'll check it out once the price hits rock-bottom in the UK

Yeah, I'd say it's worth a rental or a $10 (or whatever your equivalent is over there) purchase. It's not a bad game at all, it just suffers from being an obvious Modern Warfare clone and from having clunky gameplay.

Might and Magic III.

I've never played an M&M game before, but I decided to skip the first two and go for the more modern third entry. It's definitely outside my comfort zone, but it's a pretty fun game so far. If only my Sorcerer and Cleric would stop dying in one hit I'd be all set.
