Finally dove into this, after hearing so many good things. Rightfully so, as it is one ridiculous adventure. Played it on the easy difficulty to enjoy the over-the-top nature of it, and honestly, it's potentially in my top 5 this year. The DLC was also definitely worth it (part IV), so if you're looking to pick this one up, do yourself a favour and get the DLC.
Medal of Honor: Warfighter
I'm possibly one of the few people who actually enjoyed the 2010 reboot, and spent some considerable amount of time in the multiplayer, as well. So when EA announced the sequel, I was all over it. Sadly, the campaign isn't as good as before, but it's still fairly passable. Multiplayer is on an entirely separate disc this time, and I put roughly 6 hours into it one day (if not more). The idea of two-man fireteams making up the "red vs blue" teams was a good one, as it takes teamwork and both players contributing to rise up the leaderboard. I'll likely be spending quite a bit more time in the multiplayer, as well, as the medals/commendations for milestones are rather enticing (and the gameplay is, of course, solid).
Got this at launch, and played up until roughly Lv 18 as a Gunzerker. I made the mistake of trying to play the original by myself, so I'll only play this with friends, and it's fairly difficult to get everyone on the same page/schedule. So this game will likely take some time, but I do very much like it. The humour is there, the guns are fun to shoot, and it's a blast to play with friends.
This was one I saw some limited coverage of online, and especially after seeing Giant Bomb's quick look, I was sold (especially at only $10). It's a top-down puzzle game disguised as an action game. You have rooms of bad guys with various weapons, from guns to bats, and you have to take everybody out. Arm yourself with a pipe and you better hope the next enemy doesn't have a gun, or you won't get far. Similarly, using a shotgun in one room will likely alert the folks two rooms over, so it's a delicate balance that needs to be found for you to succeed. I'm currently awaiting a patch that will make the game playable again, but even despite that it may also wind up on my GOTY list.
I also bought XCOM on day one but I've barely put any time into it (just enough to know I hate Chrysalids), so that'll go on the next post. I also dropped the difficulty down on Dirt Showdown and finished that. And won the Super Bowl in Madden 13 with Washington, and then departed for the sunny skies of New England. Then we have Halo 4 next week and then nothing for like a month. Whew.
