The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
After the better part of 2 weeks of being under the weather in one form or another, I feel as though I am starting to turn the corner. When I am not feeling very good I tend to turn away from my games a bit, particularly multi-player. But in looking for something to play I have rediscovered Oblivion. I haven’t really played this game since mid-summer, partly because of new games that came out, the other part is that I found the character I created was becoming more like work than being fun to play, so I created a more stout warrior-type character and I am back off to the races. Oblivion is really too good a game to just sit on the shelf, and with a long, cold winter ahead of me this game is just what the doctor ordered!
Good Bye CoD3, Hello Lost Planet: I am not one much for trading in games but today I decided to pull the trigger on Call of Duty 3. I beat the single-player a few weeks back and because of great multiplayer games of Gears of War and Rainbow Six Vegas, I have felt no real desire for CoD3 multiplayer. On top of that I feel that I prefer the accesibility of CoD2’s multiplayer over what ‘3’ was bringing to the table. So I got $45 in trade and put it towards the 360’s best bet for the early winter, Lost Planet: Extreme Condition.
Bac-Compat Updated: While I am not much for last-gen gaming, I noticed a few titles from the Xbox that are still worthy of your time that appeares on the last update:
Dead Or Alive Ultimate: DOA fighter collection is now complete on the 360.
Psychonauts: One of the best platformers of any generation now playable in the next-gen.
Shenmue II: How I long for the third chapter of this series! We can only hope at this point.
Whacked!: One of my all-time fav’s. Responsible in part for introducing me to my core XBL buddies!
A short update this week. With Christmas closing in gaming is starting to quiet down, hopefully we will have some post-Christmas goodness to look forward to! Stay frosty!
