    My kid brother bought Enslaved the other day, so I'm having fun with that. It's a bit of a hidden gem. It's a platformer-brawler, so it's like a Prince of Persia-game, but with a staff instead of a sword, and the setting is futuristic. It's post-apocalyptic, but not grim, and the ruins you traverse are all covered with vegetation, so it's not bleak and grey. Fluid character animations and great voice-acting.

    I've been playing games on my Nintendo Gamecube.

    Mostly James Bond Everything or Nothing, Goldeneye Rogue Agent, Timesplitters Future Perfect and Metroid Prime 2.

    Metroid Prime I got for this CHristmas and the game is pretty decent with the twist of a dark side planet.

    I just got up to the Amorbis worm boss. Yowza

    Everything or Nothing is an underrated Bond-game, I find. It's a lot of fun and has a lot of iconic moments to give you that classic Bond-feel. On the other hand, GoldenEye on N64, which is a great game, an excellent shooter for its time and a whole lot of fun still; while a fantastic game overall, is not really very Bond-ish. Sure, you have the occasional mini-camera, watch-laser and the damsel in distress, but other than that it looks and plays like any other shooter. The EA Bond games, while not having left the lasting cult-status impression as GoldenEye, I find to be better at being Bond, if you will. GoldenEye might be a better shooter, but if a 007 game plays just like any other generic shooter, what is there to make it a 007 game? I mean, what's the point of even calling it a James Bond-game, if so? I have a lot of fun with GoldenEye, still to this day, and it is a very polished game, but EON is my favorite 007 game.

    Anyway, my brother hogged the Xbox, so I had to put Enslaved on hold. Now I'm back on Skyward Sword. Last night, I did half of the forest temple.

    Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions

    I guess I'm about halfway through the game and I can totally see why Spider-Man's (that's all four of them) enemies want to kick the living crap out of him. I seriously had to mute the game during the last Sandman battle. Between his quips, Madam Web's "help," and Sandman himself I wanted to put my foot through the TV.

    Also, that boss battle was one of the worst I've played in a while. There's just too much junk floating around and I kept getting caught on it when I'd be trying to lay the smackdown on Sandman.

    MLB 12: The Show and Mass Effect 3. Slight edge to MLB time-wise, Road to the Show is way too much fun.

    For the first time ever I can run new games on the highest ultra level settings! So naturally Skyrim and soon, once the download finishes SW:TOR. Plus League of Legends and Guild Wars occasionally plus a couple other old stand bys.

    So any suggestions now that I have an uber computer?

    I don't want to overload myself and try to play 10 games at once but I probably will. I have quite a few in my library to try, Crysis 1/2 being of them. Gonna give SW:TOR a shot and continue Skyrim.

    Mass Effect 1.

    I decided to hop on the bandwagon and go into the series. It's OK so far, good characters & a decent villain, but it does get quite repetitive in missions.

    Gears if War 2. I play games with a big-ish gaming site and they do a Gears 3 night, so I thought I'd better finish Gears 2 before I start playing Gears 3. I'm stuck though. :(

    Ratchet & Clank, in the new HD collection on the PS3. Not sure if it's the nostalgia talking, but it's aged surprisingly well and is still an absolute blast.

    Alternating between Chime, Outland and inFamous 2, but once my subscription to PS+ ends in a few days, I'll lose access to them. Then I'll probably move on to the first inFamous, as I played the second one first.

    Installed a Super Nintendo emulator on my ultrabook last week - currently alternating between playing Donkey Kong Country 2 and Mega Man X. Fun times. :)

    I'm doing a third run on Mass Effect 1 in attempt to get way more achievements than my previous two runs. Really annoyed at any and all Mako missions. [face_phbbbbt]
