What are you playing? (January 10)

Still playing Borderlands and Ratchet and Clank: A crack in time.

I think I'm nearing the end of R & C. Such a fun game and I feel good for not looking up the solution to Clanks time puzzles. They can be a bitch to figure out though

Borderlands is such an amazing experience. I think this is one of the few rpgs I'll actually finish. The only quests i dont care for are the scavenger hunts

Just finished Shadow Complex and Maw which were excellent. Still playing Borderlands and I'm thinking of finally giving Mass Effect a proper chance.

Re: What are you playing? (January 10)

I'm making a conscious effort to play games I bought ages ago and never really played much due to other distractions. It's time for me to quit buying new releases and work through some old stuff.

Crackdown: Played for a couple of hours, but I'm honestly not sure what's going on in the game. Kill some guys, get some orbs, repeat. I'm losing interest there.

Far Cry 2: Played this for a couple of hours as well and starting to get a feel for it. Not quite sure how to find a mission though when I played it last time (couldn't see any exclamation points on the map).

Dead Space: Just started today - could only play for half an hour or so. Definitely liking it so far.

Re: What are you playing? (January 10)

Recently Finished
Shadow Complex - Great game, the Metroidvania formula is so addicting, plus the powers you gain are just plain fun.

Wheelman - It's fun for a while, but the mechanics wear thin eventually

Now Playing

Infamous - Almost done, I have to say I was a little dissapointed after what I had heard. The game does look great, but I found the animations awkward, Cole dies too easily IMO, the character voice acting is cheesy, and the stick on jumping can get annoying when it happens at the most inopportune times. I would have liked a little more mobility too.

Afro Samurai - Fairly mediocre and repetitive, I'm almost done though.

Uncharted 2 - Half way through. I went in a little skeptical of all the praise, but it really is just an outstandingly polished linear action adventure game. Every once in a while you see the seams of the very directed experience, but it doesn't matter all that much. I think it's the first game that I really appreciate the voice acting in, I've genuinely laughed multiple times. The scene
Spoiler:
on top of the hotel where you jump in the pool and start saying Marco...Polo, was hilarious and completely unexpected.


Comet Crash - Decent tower defense game.
