Playing my way through Bioshock 2's multiplayer at the moment, it's still pretty fun but online multiplayer isn't my forte and i just want to get it done so i can move on to the single player on hard mode, but i'm finding it hard to bring myself to playing the multiplayer, as i am playing Fifa 09's (i know it's old but i'ts still ok) manager mode so i can alternate between playing Fifa and Bioshock so that the levelling up doesn't become a complete slog, but i don't think i've played Bioshock for about a week now so that hasn't really gone to plan.
I was also thinking about getting a copy of Fifa 10 before 11 comes out, so that i just about have the newest copy, and playing Fifa 09 only makes me want it more, however i would much rather finish off the platinum for Bioshcok 2 and then move to something else otherwise it will just bug the crap out of me that i am still yet to platinum a game with a substantial amount of online trophies.
In other news i am very much loving the juicy news that is coming out of Gamescom, chief amongst which for me is the revelation that Mass Effect 2 is coming to the PS3 around a year after it was released onto the Xbox, in the same way that Bioshock made it to the PS3. I am pretty excited because i loved Bioware's work on Dragon Age but have never played Mass Effect, so if the game is anything more than Dragon Age in space i will be thrilled, maybe i should read up on the Gamespot review for the game to get a taste of it.
There is other great news arriving courtesy of the ever reliable Gamespot crew, but i don't want to bore you with it, just look it up for yourself on Gamescom.Gamespot.com and you are bound to find something to peak your interest. Speaking of interest i am very much looking forward to Gamespot's coverage of TGS next month, as i couldn't get enough of their coverage of E3 and Comic-Con, and am wishing for some great live stage demos from Tokyo and hopefully Germany, I mean Gamescom hasn't really begun yet and doesn't finish until Sunday.
I myself am lucky enough to be going to a games event happening in the very happening London, the Eurogamer Expo, that is taking place at the start of October. I will be covering the event for the gaming website i work for, which is called e4g.info, so i shall endeavor to play and preview as many games as humanely possible in the three days of the show, not all of the line up of games has been anounced yet but it is shaping up very well and i am awfully excited even though it is over a month away. I would love to see so many of the great titles and getting to play them is even better, but i would also really like to meet the Gamespot UK team, as i love all their work, but i don't know if they would cover the event given one of their competitors is hosting it, but we will see.
