    I just started playing Captain America: Super Soldier. I got through the first few chapters and actually stayed up until almost midnight on a weeknight (pretty late for me) because I wanted to keep playing. It’s pretty good. Yeah, it’s kinda like “Arkham Asylum-lite” but with so many similarities it’s impossible not to compare. It’s not as polished as AA but I don’t think that really detracts from the fun factor too much. A couple things I like about this over AA is that it’s not so dark and the “soldier vision” isn’t something you turn on and off. You push the button and then it kind of fades back to normal after a few seconds. It keeps you from just playing in that mode which was easy to do in AA. The platforming reminds me a lot of Enslaved which I liked. I just rented it but depending on how much I get through it and how high I think the replayability is I may end up buying it. It’s almost a shame that you can already get it brand new for $30 (not that I’d complain about saving money.....you just know it couldn’t have sold well at all)

    Jak II. And as usual, I can't help but love it. Irregardless of the frustration I constantly feel upon my inevitable failure.

    It is a fantastic game, probably not my favourite though, I think that's probably Fable 2 or Mass Effect, but I am just so bad at it. I've also started to get annoyed recently by my dog that just keeps jumping in front of my enemies whenever i'm trying to shoot them, so whenever I try to use V.A.T (I think that's what it's called) I just end up shooting at him.
    Now i'm back to playing Portal 2, still sucks that I can't play with random people online, and also that i'm crap at it, and a bit of Geometry wars 2, god I love that game

    Been replaying KOTOR and KOTOR 2 in anticipation for SWTOR. Almost forgot how enjoyable and good those two games are. And I still say that the ending for KOTOR is one of the best ever.

    I tried to play KOTOR again before the current build of TOR testing started; but I was trying to get some widescreen fixes I found online to work and then the game just kept crashing and I gave up. I honestly can't remember if I finished KOTOR years ago. And I know I only got a little way into II. I really need to go back and try again.

    edit: Oh ho, apparently there's a workaround involving running the updater after replacing the EXE before using UniWS with the Steam version

    Finally managed to find a copy of tales of Vesperia. been working on it for about a week and played a bit over 25 hours, but I know I have at least 40 hours left:drunk .
    Still, the game is fun and I find the cast and plot interesting.

    I'm wasn't really interested in the new Warhammer 40K: Space Marine, but I decided to go for the demo since I was curious as to what the game was like. And DAMN, it is good! It somehow is able to find a decent balance between a third-person shooter and a hack-and-slash style game. The executions (especially when you first perform them) are very satisfying and are each unique. If this game had you using Terminator Armor at some point, it would be even more epic than it appears now. Though my fall gaming will be spent with RAGE, I'll definitely pick this up when the price drops. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to replay the demo yet again :p .
