The end of the year is drawing closer and closer, although the beginning of the year was spent primarily on backlog, now I need to get some 2012 games finished so I can work on my Game of the Year. Right now I'm playing through a bunch of games at the same time, so here is what I've been playing.
Call of Duty Black Ops II
So I really should stop playing this, I finished the single player this morning (Really good) and have spent a decent amount of time with the multiplayer to know that its going to be on my list. But fuck that multiplayer is still so good, I mean really really good. It's one of those games that I will just want to play when I wake up and before I go to sleep, it's one of those games I tell friends I can't go out I'm busy. It's also one of those games that is very easy to play, when faced with the decision of starting up one of my new games that I need to play before the year is done, or just play some Call of Duty it's going to be Call of Duty every time. It's a shame that these games don't come out in the summer when nothing else comes out, then i could play without the feeling of guilt.
Need for Speed: Most Wanted
I picked this up when I picked up Call of Duty. I haven't really spent too much time with this yet, about 3 hours at the very most. I need to sit down and play some more of this, it seems very similar to Burnout Paradise, which is one of the coolest racing game on the PS3. The music is also considerably better, loving the techno/poppy feel. The multiplayer is fantastic and works better than Burnouts did, it looks really good too and the single player seems good enough.
I bought this yesterday so am late to the party, but dudes this game is pretty good. I'm not noticing the difficulty yet, but I personally think I'm quite good at the game. I love how tense each battle situation makes you feel, I love it when I take a gamble on a shot that could easily backfire next turn but then it works. I haven't played too much of it because that darn Call of Duty, but I really really want to.
Again just bought this yesterday and only booted it up a few hours ago, I played up to the point where I get my first powers. What I'm noticing is being stealthy is not that much fun and slicing guys up is, but I was told that the more people I kill the more chance I have of getting a bad ending. Which of course I don't want, but if the game is more fun killing dudes then what should I do? I really can't stand the overall plot, of you being framed, I just hate those storeys where somebody is killed but the killer leaves you in the room and then OH SHIT everybody thinks its you. But I'm enjoying the game, especially the powers there really cool.
Playstation All Stars: Battle Royale
I'm enjoying this, much to my surprise. You see I love Super Smash Bros, Super Smash Bros Melee is one of the best games on the Gamecube. Once I heard about this I went fuck yes, but then when I heard about the weird only getting points by using you super I went oh no. But as I mentioned to my surprise it works rather well, it requires less strategy and more button mashy than Smash Bros but that doesn't make it not fun. I'm finding the best success with Raiden, but I have yet to try hardly any characters.
So there you go, I want to play all of these games right now but I don't have the time. Not to mention a shit load of more games are out and very soon coming out is the Wii U. I want to get one at launch and a copy of New Super Mario Bros U and ZombiU, nothing else interests me but I'm really interested in getting a new system. Comes out this Friday here in the UK, so watch out for that folks.
