    Max Payne 3 and Ghost Recon: Future Soldier. Both games are well worth getting. Doing some campaign missions on GRFS, and some multiplayer action too.

    Should probably pull ME3 out of the dust for some multiplayer time, since there's a Operation incoming this weekend.

    I just took another stab at the game yesterday.....finally figured out how it works.

    Now I'm 15 hours in and only just at Rithain, Sir Saggrell of the House of Ballads and working hard on becoming Sworn of the Warsworn.

    I bought all the DLC, and I hope (no sarcasm) that 50 bucks somehow worms its way into the severance pay of the guys who made it, cos seriously, fucking awesome piece of long, single player high fantasy :D 

    Plus the really neat fixture of naming your own crafted gear allows for some funny vanity projects like calling your epic warrior helm 'Mr Bozo's Bobble Hat'

    I'm over 200 hours in. I haven't bought any of the DLC yet but I'm gonna buy both this weekend, hoping it does help those guys. I like this game more than Skyrim.

    Man I think I have spent over 6 hours doing Dead Pirate Kel alone. The main story seems over, but I've gotten out of it:

    A Keep containing
    -Blacksmith
    -Ship
    -Ship's captain
    -Beast Master
    -Healer
    -Scout

    And a title of some sort.

    And shit is still happening

    I'm over 15 hours into Dragon's Dogma, and I'm loving it! My character is a Strider (who bears a striking resemblance to Adam Jensen from Deus Ex) with my sidekick pawn as a Mage (named Arrietty), and we make quite the team.

    The system where you share pawns over PSN or XboxLive is a lot more fun than I thought it would be, and AI for the pawns is surprisingly good.

    The combat is the best part. As a Strider, I love sending out a volley of arrows that rain down on a group of enemies, or tripping them up using the string trap.

    The NPC animations are not that great, though. There also isn't a whole lot to the story, and pawns never shut up.

    Overall, Dragon's Dogma is great. It doesn't hold your hand, but it's not as punishing as Demon's Souls.

    Tales of Vesperia lol, for a cheesy game, earning the Sinful Sidekick title was really cool.

    I'm in the middle of a few games right now:
    Dark of the moon Autobots DS:
    I just got this about a month ago, and the only think I need to do is go back into levels to get upgrades, so I haven't been playing it too often recently.
    LEGO Harry Potter Years 5-7 DS:
    I got Years 1-4 to 100% a while back, and now I'm working on 5-7. All I need to do on this game is find character tokens and golden wizard hats (really glad they kept that).
    Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix Wii:
    I'm really stuck on this one. I've pulled all the pranks on Umbridge, and Ron and Hermione keep telling me to check the Marauder's Map to check up on the DA members, but for tasks on the Map it's blank so I have no idea what to do. Any tips guys? :eek:

    Recently bought Street Fighter II: SCE For the Genesis. Learning the ropes, as it's the first fighting game I've ever played.

    Also the first Arcade port I've ever played on a console. Go figure it's almost 20 years old, lol.

    Just got the Metroid Prime Trilogy.


    Time to re-experience three of the best games I've ever played.

    EDIT: Wow, my arm's already sore, and I've only just left the Pirate Frigate. Clearly, it's been a while :lol .

    I picked up Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood because a friend kept telling me how amazing it was. I have to agree with him, it is insane amounts of fun. It never gets old using the hidden blade.
