(post crimmis edition)

ah man, its been a couple weeks since i’ve talked about this… lets see… we’ll break it down by system again.

360
Modern Warfare 2
– i know, i know, “but fatty, your not into the realistic military stuff!” I’m usually not, but you know what made this game totally addicting? the lil RPG/character building aspects of the game. I love leveling up, both my guy, and the weapons i used. At the time of writting, i’m at level 69 (out of 70), most of my perks are Pro, except for two i’m working on right now.

I love creating my own mix of weapons/equipment/perks. I love running around ninja status with two sawed off shotguns in hand, blasting the poor chumps that decided to stop and look out the window, or who thought they were being sneaky hiding up that quiet corner. I found i love sneaking around the back of the battle and taking the team out one by one, silently. Its so visceral and heart pounding… its been a while since a game has made my heart rate/adrenaline rise like that… since Left 4 Dead.

I’ll explain why later, but the only thing i don’t like about the game is some of the people playing online. Some talk shit just to talk shit, others get pissed when you beat em, other have no sense of irony when they get their ass handed to them by a guy called ‘MrAlecBaldwin’. Either way, its makes you want to just stop playing for a while.

Borderlands – I took a break from this one for a while, but decided to give it a play when i had started to get a string of hate messages from agro MW2 players who couldn’t handle being beaten by a Baldwin brother. So, Borderlands… yea, fun, what can i say?

character building? check. Tons of weapons? check. Good multiplayer? check.

i love it, i’ve got 1 of each charcter going, my favorite so far is either the hunter or siren. The soldiers turret, and healing abilities are really good though. a fellow player who i’ve been doing co-op with has a completely leveled out soldier, and you even get ammo restored when you in proximity to him, RAD!

I’ve also dipped my toes into some Forza 3, Left 4 Dead 2 (still frustrating) and some Geometry Wars 2 (i’m sooo horrible at that game).

PS3
ModNation Racers Beta
– its finally here. its pretty good. I like it. I’m going to buy it when the full version comes out. There was some technical hickups at first, and not much to do right now, but pretty good.

PixelJunk Shooter – if you’ve got a PS3 and don’t have this, joo has some prollems. the title doesnt do it justice, yes, your in a ship that goes PEW PEW PEW! but thats not the end of it, thats not even half of it. You rescue lost scientists/researchers, and you get to play around with magma and water, which is even better than the shooting part of the game. so much fun. words useless, only play will do.

Thats about it, hopped into some GT5 Prologue, GT5 time trial demo, Last Guy, and Wipeout HD also.

DS
I didnt spend too much time with anything, but i did get some N+ time in, as well as some more Scribblenauts and puzzle bobble/bust-a-move with the Misses.

Hey Fatso what chu playin?

well. The ol’xbox red ringed so no 360 games.

On the PS2 side i’ve been running laps on Gran Turismo 4, and Tourist Trophy (the motorcycle racing game based on Gran Turismo). Also, I’ve been jumping back into the Grand Theft Autos… San Andreas and Liberty City Stories.

On the portable tip, DS is quiet, but the PSP is bumpin. First and foremost, Gran Turismo is fun, but nothing amazing. A mix between arcade and career mode, no tournaments, no series, no prize cars, no licenses (a good thing)  and only a certain number of cars can be tuned at the same time (super weak sauce). Next up is Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars… wow, pretty good, i like it a little bit more than the DS version, although theres still a few things that they ported over from the DS thats still a little wonky without the stylus. the graphics are better, sharper, and also adds some lighting effects. Lets face it, the PSP has a big beautiful screen and pretty powerful under the hood, just seems like it has a bunch of crap games.

things i’ve spawned in Scribblenauts so far…
