Forza - I'm not like a few of my friends right now due to their Drivards...
COD Ghosts - It's like playing hoops for me. It's an exercise in hand-eye coordination.
Peggle 2 - finished this now, time to get all the rainbows

the wife is playing

ACIV: Black Flag (which by the way, is annoying as crap to say the whole thing when doing voice commands) - not sure where she is
Ryse: Son of Rome - She's towards the end of this short but spectacular game. Really enjoyed watching the executions and just the overall game. Did they mo-cap boobs for this game?

Looking forward to:

TitanFall - I'm not trying to buy into the hype; keeping an open mind
Destiny - it looks like a different skinned Halo game. Never been a fan of the Havok engine ever since COD came into the scene. It was just a tad...slow yet others would be able to play fast. We'll see.
the next Halo - well just to see what's it like. will pick up Halo 4 on the cheap soonish
The Division - this is the most interesting of them all. Companion gaming is the next gen aspect that should hopefully be in a bunch of these games in the future. I'd like to think that COD and to some extent Battlefield 4 has thought of adding this aspect to their next games.

My life is richer for not knowing what goes on on reality television

Just finished "The Last of Us", currently half way through "Tomb Raider" (360), need to play "Mass Effect 3" (360), half way through "Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light" (360 arcade), and about a third of the way through "God of War: Ascension" (PS3). On next (current?) gen I've just started "Killzone: Shadowfall" (PS4) and would like to finish "Battlefield 4" (Xbox One) if they fixed the game save issue. Forthcoming: "Titanfall" (Xbox One) and "South Park: The Stick of Truth" (360). Looking forward to South Park the most!

I just started Max: Curse of Brotherhood. Despite its mediocre reviews, I decided to give it a chance. I'm glad I did; I'm about one third of the way through, and I am really enjoying it. The graphics are amazing, the controls are spot on, and I like how the gameplay builds on itself. You start off the game just being able to run and jump, and then you get your marker, with each level bringing new abilities for it. Although I haven't yet finished the game, I'm having a hard time understanding the underwhelming reviews. If this is the type of quality we can expect from $15 XBLA-style games, then I think we have a lot to look forward to.

Thanks for the review. I've been on the fence about buying this game but now I'm going to get it.

I was playing AC: Black Flag & I've been playing Dead Rising 3 since it came out. DR3 was a lot more fun than I expected.

I am currently playing AC: Black Flag and Fifa 14 on the xbox one. On the 360, I am playing GTA V online. Also, i am finishing up Season 2 Episode 1 of Tell Tell Game's "The Walking Dead" on the 360. Nothing in February is peeking my interest, but Metal Gear in March is a must.

360: Currently I'm focusing on maximizing Gamerscore on The Amazing Spiderman with all DLC. I've been slugging around with Hitman Absolution a bit again since it went freebie. *all in all I have well over 100 unfinished titles to go :(

 

X1: Last game I bought was Thief, it's not done yet but I'll revisit it soon enough. I also have to finish up AC4, and Deadrising 3. I also have Forza 5 but I doubt I'll ever max Gamerscore on it. It's just something fun to mess with when I'm in a racing mood.

-- correction I actually ordered Watchdogs the other day, but didn't count it as last since... well it's not out yet :)

Just finished Infamous: Second Son at 100% completion - without question the best looking game I've every played (although there is certainly more to a game than good looks). Recently started AC4: Black Flag and liking it. Also about a third of the way through Mass Effect 3. Other than South Park nothing's on my radar until Destiny...

I am playing the Spiderman game. Pleasantly surprised that its nowhere near as bad as the reviews led me to believe. Combat is not as good as the batman games but its sure as heck more varied than AC games (AC4 included) so I am not sure what the complaint is there. And the traversal of the city is nothing short of amazing (no pun intended). Voice acting is again not as good as the Batman games but at least as good as the AC games and a world better than Infamous!

I'm LTTP to Deadrising 3.

It's fantastic, I am completely a noob to the series, had some growing pains, once you get past that, I can see conceptually how the game works, and I think it ticks a lot of boxes as far as addiction activity. I mean there are objects everywhere, if you like to scavenge you're like a Pig in crap. Often times, there are too many undead and I find I just need a few seconds of peace, and the time countdown, I find a little strange in a game where you have millions of items to pick up, and have to negotiate a way to finding how to platform to things. You don't get a second to collect your thoughts without something knawing your leg off lol. Would have been nice to have some solution to throw a temporary gas in the air to keep them away, some special solution that you would use for everyday protection. Having to fight every second of the game becomes a chore. I'm hoping that the further I get the easier it will be to blast away a horde of zombies, but I am noticing that they only grow in number and withstand more damage as I level up. It's still tremendous fun after a day at work to come home and let off some steam. Regarding the time, I'm just taking my owm sweet time, and will stay on the first map, collect whatever I can until the city gets bombed, then I can start over levelled up, and play the game properly.

If there's anyone still playing, or also new to the party, you can always scavenge around with me, send me a msg ooPAYNEoo .... help me keep those things off of me while I look around and vice versa lol
