To bridge the gap between now and Christmas, I started playing Devil May Cry on the PS2. While I can see why it was pretty mind blowing at the time, the game has not aged well and good lord, it is hard as hell! Two missions in and it gave me the option to play on Easy Mode. Naturally I say no and proceed to get manhandled by the giant spider boss about 5 times. Corny dialouge, not quite sure why I'm in a castle after some chick breaks down my door and asks, "Hey! Wanna do something?" but it'll be an entertaining deversion until I see what Santa brings me.

I also have Bioshock 2 and Metriod Prime 3 collecting dust, so maybe I should popped either of those two in.

In light of recent Current Events, has anyone played Homefront? Not a great shooter or anything special...but the story and especially the first 10 minutes left me with chills. Kinda scary considering the news today.

Soooo, what did everybody get for Christmas / Hoidays in the game world? Santa left three games under my tree: Uncharted 3, Skyward Sword and Mass Effect 2, which was a welcome suprise. My plan is to start with Uncharted 3 and go from there. Have plenty to play!

One game: Batman, Arkham City. Loads of fun so far but I'm still getting used to the true non-linear aspect of it.

Spoiler


The probability of me getting the Star Wars MMO is very high though. I played in the beta and it was a stunning experience. Just a matter of deciding where I'm getting $15/mo from to pay it.

Got a $50 gift certificate for Gamespot...thinking of putting that towards a Kinect. My daughter is still a little young for gaming (only 3 1/2), but I could see her getting into it, especially if "she's the controller". Just have to make sure there's decent games for it first.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

I've been logging some serious time with MW3. The game play is good. Sure it has some flaws and people will always have criticism for some aspect but it worked out of the box and is challenging.

Finished Uncharted 3 a few weeks ago and the game is great but not as amazing as the previous game. While the story is quite good and the antagonist is the best in series, they really try too hard to create those ridiculous set pieces. Some work out perfectly, some don't. Also, the context sensitive animations cause some jerkiness in the gameplay, which is odd considering how amazing Uncharted 2 played. Also, there are bugs. In a heavy fistfight, I got pushed through a background and had to restart the checkpoint. A big plus is how an emphasis is made on melee combat. For the first time in the series, you need to be good with your fists, as some moments require it. Great game, but not quite the masterpiece 2 was.

Now playing Skyward Sword and depsite the annoyances of the Wii Motion Plus, something I think is based on my TV setup/placement of the sensor, it's an incredible game. The story is fantastic, the characters are whimsical without being annoying (aside from Goose) and the gameplay is easily the most challenging yet. They start you off with six hearts for a reason! Also, flying your bird is incredibly satisfying although it does get a touch monotonous. Only about a third of the way through, but I'm really enjoying it!

Got the Metal Gear Solid HD collection a week ago. As a huge fan of the series it's great to play these games again after so many years plus I finally get to play Peace Walker (which I never did since it was only released on the PSP). Although the games look better than ever in HD, they haven't aged well. The controls as well as the fixed camera perspective (Metal Gear Solid 2) just are not up to the standards of today's games. There are also some other problems, like lip syncing not matching, which I didn't mind 10 years ago but now is just frustrating. But all this cannot make me forget how much fun these games are.

I borrowed Assassin's Creed Brotherhood a couple weeks ago, without a doubt one of the best story lines of any game series. After I beat it I borrowed Revelations from my Brother-In-Law's brother and am about 2/3 through it. So far so good and the game just keeps improving. I wouldn't mind seeing this turned into a book series or even maybe a couple movies.

Was not a fan of revelations. At least, I didn't like it nearly as much as Brotherhood.

Online multiplayer was addicting as hell though, fun stuff

I've been addicted to this game lately. I just finished the 6th Dungeon. Don't know how far in that is. It breathed life back into a wii that had gathered quite a bit of dust. I also find this game is much more fun than Twilight Princess. I never got into that one for some reason.
