Quite literally anyway, my last post was a few weeks back. In the between time I have devoting the bulk of my free time to the Modern Warfare 2 Multiplayer component with a smattering of other games thrown in for good measure. So in order to keep up with the games, my blogging and social networking have taken a back seat. I do have a free moment this afternoon so I am going to throw down in no particular order some comings and goings of the last month:
Sporto Reporto – Madden Arcade and Shawn White Snowboarding: Though I have more games than I can handle it did not stop me from picking up a couple more. The difference here is I have some multiplayer opportunity, First off if you are a reader of mine you will know some of my on again, off again relationship with video game Football. I thought Madden NFL Arcade would be a good compramise as it strips away a lot of the complexity and offers the gamer a quick and accessible football game. The surprise for me is that the game is not as quick to playthrough as I expected. After a couple of games I started to get my footing and started to be able to be successful, This game will be a nice go-to game for those lull times.
I picked up Shawn White at the behest of Cru foe something a little different this winter. So far I have some mixed feelings about it, but overall it is a pretty decent package and it is a snowboarding game. While it is no Amped 2 (my personal favourite) it is the best game in its genre for this generation.
Star Wars Force Unleashed – Ultimate Sith Edition: I picked up the Ultimate Sith Edition recently as well. After an achievement-hunting first evening with the game I have not gone back to it since. This one may be a rainy day game. It looks pretty cool and came in a pretty sweet package.
Now to keep this short I am going to encapsulate a few important bullet points:
Left 4 Dead 2 is in my house. More on that in my next Zombie News post
Repurchased FEAR 2 as I want to give its campaign DLC a spin in the future
Assassin’s Creed 2, so far the game is excellent, trying to squeeze it in between….
Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer. Already at Level 52 with over 30+ hours in that mode alone.
Still with AC2, picked up the deluxe strategy guide, really cool, think I will pick up the deluxe MW2 one as well!
Picked up the ‘See the Future’ DLC for Fable II, another rainy-day project
And I am sure there is more. Hopefully in the near future I hope to have more posts from Borderlands, Forza 3, and the world of Zombies…but don’t hold your breath, likely I will be gaming instead of blogging, the way it should be!
