Still chugging along, just like everyone else in this world. When school and work aren't my focus of attention, it's been games, and there have been some good ones I've picked up recently.
I was interested in this but I held it off for awhile because of other games I wanted. With the price down now after a few years I decided to try it out. So far I would say it's very good, the art style is good-looking and unique, the way they morphed first-person action and role-playing is balanced and works great, and large catalogue of weapons you can pick up always keeps you yearning for more. For some reason though you can't sell your old, weaker weapons for newer, better ones. That is unless I'm missing something. Plus despite having a huge arsenal at your disposal, the enemies are really underwhelming. Maybe it's because I'm still early in the game, but so far I've only encountered two enemy types. Also many of the missions are really tedious, but again I'm still early in the game, and I'm playing this solo rather than co-op. Still a good game nonetheless, and am now considering checking out the sequel.
Waited a long time for this, and patience sure paid off. The game is visually stunning, I swear I thought the opening cut scene used real life actors, but when I looked more closely I realized I was wrong. The new environments you'll explore look brilliant, the music is quite good and memorable, and the new weapons added are very impressive; especially the ones that come apart and put themselves back together every time you re-load. One thing that surprised me was that there really weren't that many new enemies, so you mostly fight old familiar faces for most of the game which was kind of disappointing. To be honest the plot kind of went over my head, I wasn't really sure what new enemy was, or why they wanted to wipe out humanity. I was more focused of the personal story of Chief and Cortana, which was very well told and it really set a new standard for story-telling in this series. Still a very great game, looking forward to what they'll do for the next entry.
Haven't played BL2 yet. Waiting to build a PC and play it on that.
Halo 4 has been incredible for me too. I am very upset with the HUGE lack of vehicles, but once you can get past that it is a great game, almost as good as 3.
