Re: What are you playing? (August '11)

Getting into Gears of War for the first time. Just finished 2 playthroughs of the first one. Now I need to do co-op and Insane difficulty, and then I'll move on to GOW2. I've owned both games for over 2 years.

Working through Fallout New Vegas. I want to beat it and sell this copy before the GOTY version comes out with all the DLC.

Finished L.A. Noire the other night. Trying to decide what I want to move on to next. I'm thinking either Castlevania: Lords of Shadow or Marvel Ultimate Alliance (leaning towards Castlevania though).

I finished both games and had a good time with both. Batman really, really surprised me and it took some serious time to complete. Medal Honor while fun and looked good was the shortest game I've played in a long time. Finished in two days.

I bought Gears of War 2 on launch day, but became extremely busy with school, so its still in the shrink wrap. With Gears 3 right around the corner, I've decided to get back into the series. I just got replaying Gears 1, so I think I'm finally going to open Gears 2 tonight.

Re: What are you playing? (August '11)


I got about a quarter of the way through this one when it first came out then got sidetracked on other games. I restarted from the beginning last month and I'm still working my way through it and enjoying the hell out of it. Probably my favorite US-released JRPG of this generation, beating out Lost Odyssey.

Also, I bought this yesterday and it kicked my ass:

But I will stick with it.

Over the next several weekends Epic has some extra XP in the Horde matches. It's suppose to be a extra x5 every weekend. It was x5 this weekend so next will be x10, then x15 and so on I saw a few at Level 12-15 tonight.

I just finished up a second run through of the first Uncharted before playing Uncharted 2 for the first time. I'm about 4 chapters into U2 so far and loving it.

Re: What are you playing? (August '11)

Started playing some more Starcraft 2 with my friends. I'm not very good, and we get crushed playing 4v4 more often then not, but still fun.

Also having a hard time working my way through Red Dead Redemption, as it's fairly boring so far.

1 more day until Deus Ex!

Heh, same here. I hadn't played it since last Christmas and started messing with it again this weekend. My wife helped me out a bit though I kinda remember why it put it down. It is fun in spots but it can be very frustrating (especially in two player). From what I read though, it will be much easier once I get through all four years and go into freeplay. I am in the middle of year three right now and hopefully I can at least finish the story levels this time around.

Outside of that, grinding out the last achievement (fame) in Torchlight and playing an usual assortment of Rock Band 3 and NBA 2k11. Thinking of going back to Mafia 2 soon for the DLC packs. I bought them on the cheap a while back but never got to them. But I did have a lot of fun with the main game.
