I finally turned on the Wii today, and played a couple hours on Super Paper Mario: The 1000 Year Door. I love this game.

Yes... I'm way behind the times. Thankfully I can pick up old Gamecube games on the cheap, and enjoy them for the first time. I basically played no new games between the SNES and the Wii, so I've got plenty of stuff to try.

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune: Slowly making my way through the "crushing" difficulty.

Rock Band: Finished the bonus songs on expert guitar. Now I just need to make it through Highway Star, Flirting with Disaster, and Green Grass and High Tides. Also played a bunch of DLC, including the new Locksley songs ... catchy tunes.

I completed Resistance: Fall of Man after a couple of marathon sessions. I just picked it up about a week ago since the price went down. That game was amazingly addictive, and by the end of it, I had really gotten used to the PS3 controller as a good one for shooters. Also, it was fun to play a shooter where you can just keep all your weapons and the ammunition is everywhere.
Now I've returned to Halo 3 single player and am playing that. I abandoned it pretty early after it came out.

I played a lot of games this weekend.

I finally beat the last remaining laboratory challenge in Worms 2 Open Warfare for the DS. (Draw Unlockable #2)

I played some more Destroy All Humans 2 for the XBOX.

I'm now 20 or so events away from the Burnout Elite License in Burnout Paradise.

I played a few more hours of Okami for the Wii.

I played a lot of Flatout Ultimate Carnage for the 360. This has to be one of the most frustrating games I've played. There are so many fun ideas in the game, but the controls are so floaty, and it feels like you have very little control over the car, any cone in the road could send you flying. But the stunt challenges are a lot of fun.

Between the first and second islands, I still have 5 levels left to Rainbow on Pixeljunk Monsters----and those five are starting to annoy the crap out of me.

I also got about 7-8 levels into The Last Guy.

Yes, very frustrating early on. Once you get the hang of the 'floaty' controls, get better cars and upgrades it gets a little better. I did enjoy it more than Burnout Paradise, just by a hair. If the controls were as tight as Burnout I could consider it the sequel to Burnout we didn't get.

Some Smash Bros and Wii Sports on Saturday.

I'm on the last level of Bionic Commando: Rearmed but don't have the motivation to finish it at this point.

I still say that Resistance is a terrible game , such a cool idea, such dull execution.

Hung out with the folks and went boating for the other days.

Ditto. Well, maybe not that much.

Good stuff (if you like games like Golden Axe and Final Fight).

And a bit of Rock Band.

A ton of MLB 08 on the PS3 followed by finally loading up Battlefield: Bad Company and using my FragFX controller.
