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.
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.
