Re: What games are you playing currently?

I'm taking a break from Fallout 3 and switching over to The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. I like Fallout 3, but trying to navigate the DC ruins has finally annoyed me to the point where I don't want to play anymore. Switching over to Oblivion because I'm hoping it's a similar type/ quality of a game without a large part of the map being turned into a PITA maze.

The Dragon Age 2 demo is out, so I'm going to give that a try

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I'm having a little GTA IV (minus the DLCs) revival. On my first session last night, completely out of the blue and without even trying, I got the Bowling achievement.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I'm not sure I know why--because he's really nothing special in the game--but I found Galactis to be so cool in MVC3. Makes me want to go to a comic store and get caught up.

Anyway, done with MVC3 for a while. I was given Zelda: Spirit Tracks for my birthday a few weeks ago, and am playing it. I remember Phantom Hourglass got hard as hell and I gave up on that one, but I'm not finding Spirit Tracks as difficult--challenging, but not head-banging frustrating. Only at the snow temple (or whatever it's called) so we'll see.

I finally dove into StarCraft 2 recently. I'm enjoying the campaign so far.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I started playing Uncharted 2 this weekend.

OHMYGOD. I knew the game was good from the stellar reviews, but I really wasn't prepared. OMG the collapsing building, the helicopter outside, i don't think i've ever screamed out holy shit over and over again while playing a game before. Amazing amazing game. Hollywood wishes they could make something like this.

Riviera: The Promised Land for the PSP. A neat little JRPG that strives to be something a little more than just another Dragon Quest clone.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I think I posted this twice before, but Dynasty Warriors 3 is a good game to wind down, or let the brain rest...

And come to think of it...

Dynasty Warriors used to be kind of a guilty pleasure for me. Yeah, I know they aren't really great games, but they were fun time-wasters. Haven't played one in years, though.

Playing Marvel vs Capcom 3. It looks and plays much more, I dunno, fluid than SFIV.

I wish the game had more characters to unlock.
I'm playing this too. I wish there were more characters from the get-go too, but there will be DLC characters on the way. Shuma-Gorath and Jill Valentine (RE 5) are on the way. I think they will be going for 5 bucks each.

Who has your main team been? So far my main team has been Taskmaster, Amatarasu and Magneto. Sometimes I'll sub Magneto in for Trish, Spencer or Wesker. Really loving this game though. I was a huge fan of the first 2 MvC games and Tatsunoko vs Capcom as well.

This is also a little bit different style of play compared to Street Fighter.

^ I've made that same joke many times and it's still funny.

My gf and I are about half-way through Left 4 Dead.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I just started Bulletstorm tonight! I played the prologue and first two chapters. It's definitely fun and it's definitely over the top, but from the reviews I was expecting a lot more dick jokes. Maybe that comes later. The sets are beautiful and there's some really cool set-pieces. My only problem is that it's impossible to tell your buddies apart from the bad guys; I recall I had that same problem with Gears of War.

It's hard to kill the bad guys in different ways to get more points, though. And it's really hard to get a head shot even if you whip him and he freezes in mid air briefly.

Definitely recommended.
