Re: What games are you playing currently?

ODST was pretty disappointing. The actual flashback missions are alright but the 'open world' elements wandering around a dead city for 15 minutes at a time were just tedious. I really didn't like how underpowered you are compared to Master Chief either, and I was playing on EASY

[...] my third favorite Halo title besides the original and Reach.
If I were to rank the Halo titles I've played (the only one I haven't is Halo Wars), this is exactly how I'd rank them. ODST was a great game, with a very different atmosphere from the other titles. I very much liked the sense of isolation you have in the hub world, being all alone against the Covenant occupation trying to find your team. Sometimes sneaking away from the enemy is a better choice in ODST than a full-on, Spartan-esque assault.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I've put the three games in my sig on hold for the weekend, so I can go through Call of Duty 4 and get the 1000G.

I only ever played it on the PS3 (before Trophies were introduced), but I picked up a preowned copy yesterday for my 360 on the cheap, so I'm spending the weekend getting all the achievements. Played it for about 3 hours earlier, and I've got 18/37 so far, just need to pick up the intel ones, a couple of little ones in the game, and then do the whole thing on Veteran to finish it off.

Borrowed Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands and this is the first PoP game I have ever played...So far I am really enjoying it. I think I will try the PoP game from 2008 as well

After a quiet few months I've finding it difficult to stay on top of everything!

Currently on the go;

Halo: Reach
Formula One
World at War
Fifa 11

And then next month we've got GT5 and BO coming.......

I personally think the 2008 PoP was a much better game. While the platforming is similar and the combat easy in both games, I much preferred the story and characters in the 2008 game. Not to mention that it was just such a pretty game.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

After finishing my 4th playthrough of the original Mass Effect, I'm now on to Alpha Protocol. Although it is quite janky in the shooting department, the sneaking-around-killing-everyone-with-a-knife is very enjoyable.

Exactly!

Going to do a re-playthrough of ODST once I'm back from Munich to get a more immediate contrast to Reach - and some more screen time with the Firefly cast (just finished re-watching all the episodes and as usual, I feel the phantom pain of a season 2 that never happened ).

I enjoyed Prince of Persia 2008 but it was like Assassin's Creed 1. A beautiful game with a fun design but you're doing the exact same three things over and over the entire frickin' game.

For the last couple of weeks I have been addicted to Minecraft. Very fun sandbox game.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Played Battlefield 1943 for the first time the other day, and while it seemed like a lot of fun, I really suck at playing other human players.

Also giving NHL 11 a try, and considering how the last NHL game I played was on the PlayStation 2, all this advanced buttons and stuff has really thrown me for a loss.

I've been playing Red Dead Redemption for the past few days, and I'm loving it.
