  • 360 Grand Theft Auto V - Loved it, but Red Dead Redemption is still R*'s magnum opus. Crysis 2 - Very pretty, but the rigid mission structure and toned down exploration made the game a slog to play compared with the original. Bordelands 2 - Did a…
  • The Bureau: XCOM Declassified (X360) A lot better than I was expecting. Very short, but it ended just before the gameplay got too stale. Worth a rental if you like Mass Effect 2 & 3 (considering it 'borrows' from both very heavily).
  • Sleeping Dogs (360) Excellent visuals and fun gameplay, but very repetitive at times. Still, a decent appetizer for GTA V.
  • I've been working my way through Sleeping Dogs, which I had sitting around untouched for ages. I spent the first few hours getting absolutely destroyed in every fight and thus making 0 progress, but since doing a ton of sidequests and finding all of…
  • A belated congrats to FB and Soren! Our daughter turned two last week and we've got a second kid on the way. Good times.
  • I've been slowly whittling away at the 20 or so games in my current backlog and have been jumping between them without much focus. As such, I have only completed 3 games in the past couple of months. 360: Crysis- Was surprised to find this as a …
  • XIII kind of let me down after the amazing XII, but XIII-2 was fun enough to remove the bad taste from my mouth. Can't comment on XI/XIV as I wouldn't know/care what constitutes a good MMO. FF in general has been deeply polarising for most of its…
  • My biggest question mark is how much of the touted non-game entertainment content will be readily available outside the US. I'm guessing an amount around the 0% mark. Of course, we'll be paying more for the privilege of having less (as usual).
  • Kairo (PC) Great little atmospheric gem. Creeped me out a hell of a lot more than any actual "horror" game I've played. Brilliant soundtrack too.
  • 360: Spec Ops: The Line The engaging and disturbing story was enough to keep me playing through the frustrating and cheap (I know grenades being instakill is realistic but damn it is unfun, especially when trying to grapple with going in/out of co…
  • Assassin's Creed 3 - 360 The first 5 chapters were painfully dull gameplay-wise, but things picked up somewhat afterward. Still, nowhere near as good as 2 and Brotherhood. I might pass on 4 unless I hear great things.
  • 360: Dead Space 3- The weapon crafting was fun and sidequests a nice touch, but my goodness what a slog to get through. Such a massive step down from 2 in terms of pacing, level design and even setpiece usage. Gears of War: Judgement- Enjoyable …
  • Haven't been on the ball enough to update this thread and my OCD has been screaming at me. Better get it over with! PS3: Killzone 3- Beat this co-op with my brother-in-law. Serviceable, if generic. X360: Left 4 Dead 2- Also co-op'ed this on…
  • Far Cry 3 (360) GOTY by a long margin. Just perfect.
  • Final Fantasy XIII-2 (360) Got bored of the original before finishing it so wasn't expecting much from this one but I was very pleasantly surprised. I maxed out all the roles well before the final boss so the challenge level was low, but taking …
  • Borderlands 2 (360) + DLC as Maya. Good times, working on a NG+ run to hit 50 now.
  • Credits roll on Dragon's Dogma (360). I'll probably come back for the post-game stuff once my backlog is a little less overwhelming.
  • Bastion (XBLA) x2 - NG+ run complete
  • Batman: Arkham City (360)
  • Batman: Arkham Asylum (360)

  • Literally blasted through (thanks to the Super Shotgun) DOOM II (XBLA) (+ No Rest for the Living) Great game, although I think overall I slightly prefer the first.
  • BioShock Infinite. I was hoping to hear/see more about the game to tide me over until next year :/

  • DOOM (XBLA). Never played it before, so I though I'd see what all the fuss is/was about. It definitely exceeded my expectations. Such a simple formula, but it works so well. The last Episode was bloody brutal though!
  • Fez (XBLA) done twice and S-ranked. Amazing experience. Best original game I've played on XBLA by quite a margin. Excellent soundtrack too.
  • Bulletstorm (360). Silly, dumb fun. I expected nothing more. Should be called Kickingstorm, though :P
  • Shaymin wrote: » Phantasy Star V or nothing. /anti-social gamer Don't stop believing! At this point I'd be happy with PSV the post-apocalyptic gritty reboot!

  • Metal Gear Solid 2 HD Edition (360) finished. Interesting game, but I never got used to the bizarre (by today's standards) controls. I can't count the amount of times I accidentally unequipped something when trying to shoot or switched the HF Bla…
  • Metal Gear Solid 2 HD. I'm stuck on the RAY battle. Anyone know how many I need to take down (Normal difficulty)? I usually get up to the 6 or 7 mark (including the R05E) before I screw up and die. All of the FAQs I've read say I should only have to…
