Re: What games are you playing currently?

Is anyone else playing Bulletstorm? It's pretty fun. I'm up to the start of Act Three now and there's lots of big beautiful set pieces, like controlling a three story tall mecha godzilla.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Running through Metal Gear Solid 4 for the first time. Just finished Act 1. Its slow going since I'm trying for a no alerts / no kills run. Save points are way too far apart for my tastes. Tonight's endeavors ended after losing more than an hour in the first area of Act 2.

So far, I'm liking it significantly less than MGS3 or MGS:TTS, but all of the continuity porn has kept it above MGS2 thus far.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

been playing UT2004 with bots and i played a CTF match on Joust 5-on-5....

it was INSANE! i ended up with over 500 points, over 300 kills, about 15 Holy Shits, 2 Wicked Sicks, a Godlike, several double, multi, mega and ultra kills, at least 2 Dominatings and a killing spree. i used 'booster' about 5 times, did 2 Beserks, a Speed and an invisible.

my team won 2-0.

Finished the original Assassin's Creed - highly enjoyable if a bit flawed -, now moving on to ACII.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Killzone 3.

Am currently 62% of the way through the trophies after one-and-a-bit playthroughs. Need to do an elite playthrough at some point too. I'm loving the MP. Playing as a Marksman most of the time. Love that invisibility cloak with the radar scrambler and the silenced machine pistol.

Just picked up Magicka... one level in, playing co-op is pretty fun.

I pretty much had to try the game after seeing the trailer for its upcoming expansion:

Too cool!

I'm taking a break from Fallout 3 and switching over to The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.

I know exactly what you're talking about. The DC ruins part of the wastelands were terrible to navigate.

Oblivion is definitely more straight-forward in terms of level geometry.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I finished "Bulletstorm" last night. I'm surprised no-one else here is talking about it! It's a ton of fun. The graphics and settings are gorgeous. The game play really is different from your usual shooter; I don't know how I'm gonna go back to Halo where I can't leash the bad guys, send them flying through the air towards me in slow mo so I can shoot them better or kick them into a spike wall

The dialogue is also pretty funny. Not as good as the hype was suggesting but it's definitely entertaining. The story is much more interesting than something like Gears of War.

I'm glad to hear that Oblivion is easier. It wouldn't be so bad if I did nothing but follow the story.... except I like to explore. I want to find everything and go inside every door, and DC just pisses me off because I have no idea how to get anywhere. Which is a shame too, because I really was enjoying Fallout3 right up until that moment.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Hi!

I am thinking to buy Nintendo 64 and Gameboy Advance SP.

What do you think?

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Once you navigate through the subways one in Fallout 3, then you can just fast travel it. It did take me a few tries to get where I wanted to go in that area early on, though.

I finally finished up Half Life 2, Episode I. I think between the last time I played it and today, they added achievements... so I have the last three game progress achievements and nothing else! D'oh.

I'll probably start on Episode 2 pretty soon.

Exploring in Oblivion can get a bit tricky if you try to scale mountains, but you get used to finding just the right angle to ride/walk up.

What drove me nuts about the D.C. ruins is the omnipresence of invisible walls that are supposed to funnel you into subway entries to proceed underground - lazy design in my opinion. Especially in those cases where you just know that the ruin in front of you would be perfectly climbable otherwise.
