without any further ado… what chu playin.

xbox 360

Darwinia+ – I have been waiting for this to come out, and am so happy it finally has. The name is misleading since its actually two games in one… Darwinia and Multiwinia. I’m not so much a fan of Darwinia, but Multiwinia is incredibly fun. Its a pretty simple RTS (real time strategy) with a few different types of gameplay. Domination has you capturing bases until the other team is gone, or time runs out. Rocket Race has you capturing solar arrays to refuel your rocket, then racing to fill it up before the enemy team destroys your rocket. Capture the Statue is your basic capture the flag, except this time around its a giant statue that requires alot of your soldiers to get back to your scoring area. Theres a few others, including a king of the hill game thats pretty fun to play.
Borderlands
– gotta get some more characters leveled up for the new DLC, as well as finishing up Zombie Island.
Dirt 2 – kinda cool, havent had to much time with it, but it seems to be a solid racer thats not quite simulation, yet no where nearĀ arcadeĀ status.

Honorable mention: Modern Warefare 2

Playstation 3

Katamari Forever – like the titles says, you’ll be playing this forever, and listening to the soundtrack when your not playing it.

Honorable mentions: Wipeout HD, Noby Noby Boy

Wii

The Wii has been infection with the Retro Virus since most Wii games are junk (not all, just most).

Final Fantasy III (VI) (SNES) – I love it, magic, machines. Great.
Super Mario World (SNES) – its there, so, you know, you gotta.

Honorable Mentions: Super Dodgeball (NES), Sonic 1/2/3 (Genesis), River City Ransom (NES)

(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.
