Just finished Gears of War 2 and am in the middle of Gears of War 3. The series has really impressed me.

Playing Rugby Challenge and righting the wrongs of 2011 for my team...with the exception of the Wallabies where I just lost in the semis to France.

Portal 2. Currently progressing through the much anticipated Peer Review DLC.

Good stuff so far. I hope other forum members here think with Portals.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Been playing Homefront and Duke Nukem Forever since the weekend.

Homefront is an excellent game, but it's criminally short. How they thought that campaign length was acceptable is beyond belief. I've done two playthroughs so far, and I'll probably do another on to mop up the last few SP trophies. I've heard the MP is good, but I got the game pre-owned and I can't be arsed paying for a new pass when I probably won't play it all that much.

Duke Nukem Forever is, unfortunately, pretty disappointing. They got the attitude and humour spot on and there's some really funny lines in it, but the gameplay and level design are both pretty bland. In all honesty it was a bit of a chore to play. I do kinda want to get the remaining achievements, but I just don't know if I can bring myself to play through it again when there are so many other games to play over the next few months.
Part of me hopes that they get a chance to make another DN game, so they can go back to the drawing board and get the gameplay mechanics and level design up to the same standard as the characterisation and humour.

Back to DC Universe Online for me...

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Currently I enjoy playing a multiple variety of games ranging from the PS3 and older PS2;such as Star Trek Elite Force, Lord of the Rings the Third Age, The Return of the King, Two Towers, Star Wars Starfighter, and Revenge of the Sith. PS3 games include; Star Wars The Force Unleashed and its squeal 2, Wolfenstein, and I hope the new Duke Nuke 'em Forever!

The PC games I still play are Lord of the Rings Battle for Middle Earth and its trilogy being #2 and the Rise of the Witch-King.. Another set I enjoy is Star Trek Armada and its squeal Armada 2,and many more!

That game should come with a disappointment warning on the box. Read my post above yours, dude. Take heed.

That's too bad. Homefront has some of the best console shooter multiplayer out there. It's the main draw of the game ...

It would have to be given the short length of the campaign.

I just can't justify spending the extra money on it when I'm still spending a lot of time on DCUO and Black Ops, and have Battlefield 3, Arkham City, Modern Warfare 3, Uncharted 3, Skyrim and Halo Anniversary all coming out over the next month or so. And I still need to finish Splinter Cell HD, and make a start on Resident Evil 4 HD.

Portal 2, I have decided after a little thought to get Dead Island so I guess that will keep me occupied for a while.

Struggling through Assassin's Creed on PS3, getting surrounded and hacked apart no matter what I do. I keep seeing "counter" in walkthroughs, how exactly do I do it again?

While holding your sword in blocking position, tap square as the enemy swings, just before he hits you.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

My roommate and I have taken October 18th off of work so we can go early and pick up Arkham City and then play it all day long.

I also took off November 1st for Uncharted 3.

I've just started playing Dark Souls. Simultaneously one of the most frustrating and rewarding games i've ever played.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Currently working through Destroy All Humans 2. I'm the mood these days to play a game with that title! Have to admit I got a little crush on Natalya, the Russian spy in that one, though Shama Lama bugs the cryptosporidium out of me!
