Currently playing Red Faction and trying to play Damnation, although I have no idea why I'm torturing myself.

Bioshock (X360): My first time through and it's as compelling as Fallout 3, but much more difficult.

Catan (XBLA): A great alternative when you can't get people together on a regular basis.

Quantum of Solace (X360): Nice basic FPS that is probably the best Bond multiplayer game ever. Takes all that was good with the COD4 engine and adds a decent cover element. Shotguns are overpowered though to a fault.

Devil May Cry 4 (X360): A terribly boring start that leads to a generic story. The midway point shakes things up and is the sole reason why I intend to finish it. Other than that, it's a very unoriginal game.

Gears of War (X360): My first time playing it. It takes a long time getting used to taking things slow in terms of action. I'm debating whether to abandon the single player and get a friend to pick up a copy and play co-op.

I just dumped a bunch of games at Gamestop that I either hate, got stuck on, or finished and haven't touched since for Red Faction: Guerrilla. I haven't put the disc in yet, but I'll add that to the list of "now playing" when I get home tonight.

Don't worry, it seems tough at first but the enemies never get any tougher. You get more powerful but they don't.

Re: What are you playing? (June 09)

Lost Odyssey -- I played this when it first came out and got distracted around the begining of the 2nd disc. I restarted from the begining about a month ago. Now I'm on Disc 4. What an amazing game. My favorite JRPG of this generation.

Crackdown -- 2nd time through, but I haven't played it since it was released. My goal this time is to get all the orbs.

Gears of War -- Again, 2nd playthrough. The first was on the easiest level and I never beat the last boss. Now I'm going through on medium -- this time, I'm going to beat the game and get all the COG tags.

Mario vs Donkey Kong Minis March On - Fantastic game for 800 points.
Lego Batman - Having fun playing co op stuff with my kids.
Prinny Can I Really be the Hero - Awesome game, hard but fair. You feel you can get past something even if it takes awhile and the difficulty so far hasn't felt cheap like old school games sometimes can.

Re: What are you playing? (June 09)

I just "beat" (ie, finished the 'story') of Crackdown. Oddly, the last boss I had to beat was the first boss for Shai Gen, somehow I got to that one last. I really really liked the ending, I hope the sequel follows up on that.

I'm between games now I've been playing a little Burnout online, and I sort of keep hopping between unfinished games...
Bully (stuck on a sneaking mission),
Lost Odyssey (fourth disk, some weird timing battle). I agree, this is a damn good JRPG, it does lots of things right and the characters are very realistic; I just got stuck on that battle.
Mass Effect (I'm lost as hell, I don't know where I need to go)
Eternal Sonata (I don't even know where I am on that one, but when it's an hour between saves, it's tough to play sometimes)
Sonic's Genesis Collection
Namco Museum
Both are great collections, but man, some of those old school games are hard. And some are not very good, admittedly.

Occasionally 1 vs 100.

I am looking forward to Ghostbusters, that looks pretty cool, but I don't preorder unless there's a good price or a good freebie. Riddick is on my Goozex queue as well, but it's not moving very fast.

I'm actually tempted to buy the Fallout 3 DLC (but I'm also waiting for the complete GOTY edition), or play Bioshock again.

Sort of in a gaming funk/ennui. Actually been watching DVDs more. Help me pick something to play and enjoy

Re: What are you playing? (June 09)

Ghostbusters (Just finished the first level and i'm enjoying the game aside from the sucky save system the game has.)
Infamous (Second playthrough on Evil/Hard in search for my remaining trophies and ultimately my first Platinum.)
Prototype (About 1/3 of the way through the game although I am somewhat bored with it at the moment.)
MLB The Show '09 (Just starting my first season.)
UFC Undisputed (Trying to get a handle on the tough learning curve of this game before I get my ass kicked in online play. Far too many moves and fighting styles to learn in a short amount of time.)
Red Faction: Guerrilla (looking forward to playing this some tomorrow.)
Tiger Woods '10 (Just got it today and will be playing it tomorrow.)

Ditto. I just can't get into that game.

Playing Ghostbusters, Red Faction, Prototype (trying), and Bricks4Ever when I'm bored.

Tomorrow gonna shoot for Guitar Hero Smash Hits, MTG, and probably try the demos for Sam&Max and the other XBLA game.

Re: What are you playing? (June 09)

So far:

The Sims 3 - I've been having too much fun with this one lately.
Team Fortress 2 - Getting back into it after not playing for a while
Uncharted: Drakes Fortune - forcing myself to finish some of my unplayed PS3 games. Starting with this one.
Burnout Paradise: Big Surf Island - I mostly just drive around and look for jumps and gates to smash in this game.

Finished Resistance 2 over the weekend and started COD:WAW. So far it's a lot better than I expected. I love hearing Jack Bauer yell out orders.

I cracked the seal and started OKAMI on the Wii since LIVE was down. This is the 1st Wii game I've purchased since Super Mario Galaxy....

45 or so minutes in, 15 of that the intro story, and man did this game seem fuckin' tedious. I hope it gets better. But then again since LIVE is back up, it may not matter.

Okami is the second best game on the Wii next to Super Mario Galaxy. Give it some time.

Put it this way, I never finished SMG and I ended up gladly trading it in for GOW2 and L4D.

So let's hope you're right

I get that it's a totally creative way to play, but it just seems to plod along.

Playing Punchout (Wii)... and I'm stuck on Great Tiger (ya, I know... I suck at timing ).

I'm also going to start over on TLoZ: Twilight Princess (Wii). I'm only 3 hours into it and the last time I played it was over a year ago.

Gears and L4D are fun, no doubt, but Galaxy was a masterpiece. At any rate it did take me a few hours to get into Okami. Once I got the slice down I was golden.
