I've been playing Mass Effect 3 multiplayer a lot lately. At least until Halo 4 is released next week.

I really enjoy the art work and the story seems decent enough so far, however the english actors are a bit wonky...

I haven't had much available time for playing games until this week. Fortunately for me, the release of Black Ops 2 coincided quite well with a reduction in my work/school load. smile.gif

Over the past month or so, I've been playing:

NCAA Football 13 - I love the online play. Unfortunately, a lot of people end up quitting if I get ahead, which happens a lot more than I'd expect since I play with Iowa and they're not having a good season. They're pretty good in the game. I've gotten the edge on people using quality teams (Texas A&M, Florida State, Oklahoma, Nebraska, Alabama) and only a few have stuck around to finish. They should implement a probation sentence like Treyarch has with Black Ops 2. Anything that could possibly deter people from quitting when things aren't going their way could be a good idea.

Black Ops 2 - This has been the big one since its release. Despite a few shortcomings, it's been a good time.

Forza 3 - I'm still on this one. I work slowly when it comes to racing games. I like the Horizons demo but it just doesn't seem the same. I'm worried about what the full version has in store. I want to pick it up but I'll probably wait until I see a better deal. Perhaps there will be something good on Cyber Monday.

I want to pick up Borderlands eventually. I figure I'll get the Game of the Year version that includes the four DLC packs for $30. It looks like a lot of fun. From watching some videos, it kind of reminds me of Phantasy Star Online; real time action with interesting weapons (instead of just swords and spells). It's on my short list of games to pick up, that's for sure.

The mainstays are BF3 and MoHW for online socializing.

Finished up Metro 2033 today which was phenominal. Hit the library part and almost gave up but finished it off and what a game. Some levels like the military complex and the Polis station were amazing to see. Story was very well written.

Just started Syndicate which so far is pretty good too. Like it more than Deus Ex which I thought was pretty flat compared to what it could have been.

Anyone gaming?

I got the HD version of ICO/Shadow of the Colossus for $20...had alrdy played SotC on PS2, just started ICO...need to play it undistracted after I finish games below.

Just completed The Last of Us...great game.

I had completed Dead Space 1 & 2...didn't realize the 3rd came out, got that and am currently 50% complete w/ it (Xbox 360)

I had forgotten how much fun it is to play some of these games. I have to say that Dead Space 3's weapon mod/creation bench is a bit of a hassle since it seems like you can create A LOT of weapons and IMO you don't really know if the weapon is going to suck or not until you finish building it and use it, which is time consuming frown.gif awesome game though, insane graphics IMO!!!

Can't wait to see how ridiculous games will look on the next consoles (PS4 & Xbox ONE).

GTA V very slowly....
post #1042 of 1059
I had been playing Batman: Arkham Origins; not particularly original or ground-breaking but still fun if you liked the first two games. Unfortunately, the game was buggy as hell; it froze up on me a half-dozen times and when I booted it up today I got a "corrupted save" error message, thereby effectively killing a week's worth of progress. I've read that this is a common occurrence on the 360 and that all versions of the game are riddled with bugs and were clearly released before the code was stable. Buyer beware on this one; at the very least, anyone thinking of purchasing should wait a few weeks until some patches/updates are released.

Yeah I agree as well. Nothing crazy but a really fun game back in the Batman universe. I had a lot of freezing the first day I got it and I turned off all notifications for XBL in the dashboard which reduced the freezing for me considerably. I then made sure any tallying of XP from fights or data packs were done before I moved...I also made sure to not move if I saw that it was saving. Which I think it has only frozen up on me I think twice. I got the patch yesterday morning and haven't had any problems. Though I haven't turned notifications back on nor have I not waited until done saving either. I also have not had the "pleasure" of file corruption either. Not saying I won't though. I went to the WB site and they said they are working on it and that they found playing offline helped with the freezing. I haven't tried that either.

Well I can't say that I am surprised that it was buggy though. They were working off of the Arkham City code which if you recall was a bit buggy when it came out too. I must say after visiting the forums they seem to be working hard on a fix. They are expecting a patch out real soon. I am glad they didn't pull a "Dark Void" like Airtight Games who completely bailed on their buggy mess of a game. Which is ironic cuz you can now call their game support by the same name as the game. lol

When I've had time Diablo 3 and GTA 5. Sorry to hear about Batman as I wanted to get that, but I guess I'll wait until it get's patched.
post #1046 of 1059
Been playing mostly GTA V, with some BO2 Origins mixed in. DL'd Ghosts and will play that next. I'm prepping for last big mission on GTA V, once I'm done with that its all Ghosts all the time. I'll be sitting at home waiting for my XB1 on 11/22 and will play some DeadRising 3.

FIFA 14 and BF4
post #1048 of 1059
Just finished GTA V (one of the best games I've played in a LONG time!) and am now working through The Last of Us. Up next: Mass Effect 3 and Tomb Raider. Also have Battlefield 4 and Ghosts on the Xbox One but don't care for Ghost's multiplayer and I'd really like to play through the Battlefield campaign (but you can't save your game). Considering trading in Ghosts for AC4: Black Flag.

I've been going thru the Splinter Cell: Blacklist campaign. I bought the game a while ago but it just got lost in the shuffle of new titles and consoles. The game is a lot of fun and definitely allows you to approach the missions as you prefer - non lethal ghost, deadly but invisible panther or all out assault. There are three types of side missions: pure stealth (where if you are discovered the mission is scrubbed), horde mode style missions where you must survive waves of enemies, and strictly co-op missions. The horde mode events are pretty tedious and I've not been able to try the co-op missions, but the main campaign and stealth missions are quite engaging and there is a lot of replay value.

I just completed Star Trek on the Xbox 360. I also borrowed the first 3 Assassin's Creed games from my nephew. He also has the next 2 for me to borrow after I complete the first 3. I'm new to the Assassin's Creed series and I'm really enjoying them.
