Re: What games are you playing currently?

Not now. Maybe later.

What are some other good games? I need to expand my horizons. I've only played about 3-4 games in the last couple years.

I can tell you right now I'm not a fan of first-person shooters. I like to be able to see the whole person (weird gaming requirement, I know, but whatever).

Favorite games/only games I've played recently:

Arkham Asyum
Infamous (1 and 2)
Uncharted

Um...and LittleBigPlanet.

You might enjoy the Assassin's Creed games.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I have thought about those. I've heard the first one is a lot different from the second one...?

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I know the second one is supposed to be a huge improvement over the original, but I don't think the basic gameplay has changed. I haven't actually played the second one though, so I'm just going from hearsay.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

The first one is horribly repetitious, I guess I'd say suffer through it just for the sake of the establishing story, but the second one is excellent. Pretty much Grand Theft Auto: Renaissance the way the game/missions are structured, and WAAAAY more variety of stuff to do than the first one. And while Brotherhood isn't quite as good storywise, it brings a number of swell new gameplay elements, and the multiplayer part of it is quite fun as well.

@RoJoHen

You definitely need to get Uncharted 2 ASAP.

You should also get Assassin's Creed 2 and if you like it AC: Brotherhood. The first AC game is fairly decent, but can also be quite tedious. So it's up to you if you get it or not. If you don't, I'd suggest you read a recap online or something like that (maybe watch a few YouTube videos).

One of my favourite (PS3) games ever is also Valkyria Chronicles. It's this interesting mix of strategy, FRP, and third person shooter. I can see how some people wouldn't like it, so you could always download the demo or read a few reviews before buying it.

The Ratchet & Clank games are also a lot of fun. As an alternative, you could also get the Sly Cooper collection (three games for the price of one). Oh and Just Cause 2 is also a VERY entertaining game.

If you like unrealistic racing games, you should get one of the Motorstorm games. Then you have the well known games like Gran Turismo 5, NHL11, Battlefield: Bad Company 2, all the Call of Duty games...

One game I also REALLY enjoyed was the 2008 Prince of Persia. Oh and Mass Effect 2, just like Uncharted 2 I really think every PS3 (and PC/360) owner should play ME2.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Welp, went out on my lunch break today and picked up Uncharted 2. Goodbye, weekend.

My favorite part of the first one was that there weren't any bosses. I get tired of bosses. It's hard to make a good boss that isn't incredibly repetitive.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I was able to find Wing Commander 3: Heart of the Tiger for 6 bucks. I've been playing that for a couple days. Not a bad game at all.

Nobody told me that Claudia Black was in this game!

Now all I can think about is how awesome a Farscape game like this would be.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Had a productive few days gaming. Managed to finally find the time to get back on Motorstorm Apocalypse online long enough to reach rank 40, which got me the final trophy I needed to platinum the game.
Also managed to kill George Romero, rescue the original characters and get a couple of other Call of the Dead achievements on Solo zombies mode on Black Ops.

Insomniac just added a new gun and some new abilities to the Resistance 3 beta, so I'll probably spend a bit of time on that over the weekend.

I've been playing through inFamous and inFamous 2, first on evil and now Hard Mode good. I got the platinum trophy for the first game, now I'm getting ready to fight the Beast on inFamous 2 to get the hard mode trophy, good ending trophy and Platinum trophy.

I got the MS: Apocalpyse plat a while back... man getting to rank 40 sure was a grind.

I'm still deciding whether to check out the R3 beta. I downloaded it already, but I'm not really a big FPS fan.

It wasn't so bad with the added chips from the downloadable events and weekly challenges. I just needed to sit down for a few hours and make that final push to get from 38 to 40.

The best time to try it would be now. With the new patches it's about as good as it's going to get before release, which is still pretty good, even if it does have a few flaws. It's definitely fun to play once you get into it, but it's nothing revolutionary, so if you're not a big FPS fan to start with, then it might not do much to change that. Still worth a bash though.
