I enjoyed myself watching the 'rage quit' videos, and this one about Trials HD is really fun, try this one also :

about Crisis 2, I managed to finish it but that was a pain in the arse IMO, scenario is crap, no real boss fight, this armor is shit (you're allways out of energy then you can't run anymore to hide somewhere...), I just wanted to finish the game before selling it and this was really long and annoying... the multiplayer could be fun, but the other characters move rigidly, you always die in 2 or 3 seconds after walking around after rspawn to access the battle area...

shit game

Just grabbed Killzone 3 and it kicks Crisis 2 to death. Better graphics, better solo campaign (but also too quickly done), and really great multiplayer. Multiplayer maps, graphics, design, weapons, classes are really great, and even in team deathmatch you feel the "coop" style with each class being useful to the others (I'm often a medic, reviving teammates, while some of them repair stuff for us and set turrets, etc.)

Killsone 3 is IMO one of the best present shooters all platforms intended.

cheers

Been busy with Deus Ex: Human Revolution. On my third play through now. The experience can drastically change each time depending on how you play.

Want to get Dead Island but the damn thing is sold out everywhere! :x

Can't wait for:

Planetside 2
Hawken
Tribes: Ascend (Hopefully doesn't suck too bad, but it's looking less like a tribes game)
Skyrim
Torchlight 2
Battlefield 3 (Maybe... It's their last chance. BFBC2 is still has some annoying bugs, but it's still the best shooter out now and has the best audio of any game out there...)

p.s. Hawken, if y'all haven't heard of it...

Been playing a lot of fallout 3 lately. Very fun game and plenty long to keep me occupied until skyrim.

Anyone been enjoying Dead Island? Looks like it needs a lot of patching, and I barely play on the pc these days (enjoying some ipod games tho) but my temp assignment is ending at the end of the month, so I can see looking into some zombie sandbox fun....hope it doesn't get too redundant; I get bored easily.

It's sold out at every single retailer in town, so I can't get my hands on a copy.

That's surprising, Halo 2 was the best one of the bunch IMO. I played so much of that game in college it was crazy. We had a weekly sunday afternoon LAN setup w/4 xboxes linked together w/ 4 tv's for 4x4 madness.

lol, so true. Every year it's the same "we've reinvented the wheel of football games" speech with new super detailed animations and tweaks to the controls and graphics and so, then a few games in you figure out that if you send a through pass from the right spot or take a shot at the right angle the keeper won't ever get to it and then every game is a 5-0 win.

I'm trying to complete a Mass Effect Insanity run, started with a lvl 30 character which apparently makes the enemies difficulty scale up and you start without the upgrades, so it's even harder. I have to confess I threw a controller during the Collector ship platforms fight.
