What video games have you been playing ?

Trying to get out of the rut ive been in for several months now (Too many AAA titles- mainly shooters and stealth games -  and they're all pretty damn serious and stressful), I've installed a few games i've played in the past, quite different in genre and style, playing each one of em for a few hours a day, and its going kinda good and refreshing .. 
 
 

Now Playing

1. Just Cause 2

Been playing it excessively.. Such an explosive action game!! 5 out of 5. I just regret picking Regular difficulty instead of Easy, because the military folk are fucking brutal !

2. Call of Duty

One of the very first shooters ive ever played with so many memories. It's kinda basic and laid back which is a good change from all the intense shooters ive been playing.

3. Psychonauts

The best adventure game ive ever played, simply because it doesnt bore me the fuck out with boring and long conversations like in Tales of Monkey Island, or with too much platforming or action.. It blends all the elements into the best and most fun adventure experience ever!

4. Trine

I rage-uninstalled this game during my first playthrough. Now im playing it again on Easy just for the adventure and dazzling visuals.

5. Prototype

Another one of my rage-uninstall victims.. Playing it again just for the fun and manslaughter .

6. Indigo Prophecy

Many people praise it, so i decided to try it out and i must say the Hollywood Movie feel to it and the interactive gameplay is quite interesting.

 
 
How about you guys? anything interesting and not so top-notch and serious and popular ? keep Mass Effect 2 and Battlefield and MW out of this thread !

I have to admit that I have been playing absolutely no new games of late.  I picked up a PS2 back in February and tried to make an honest effort to get through FFX2 but haven't gotten very far.  As a result I got sucked back into playing the Golden sun games on the GBA and I beat Boswer's Inside Story not too long ago.  That game got a little long-winded at times, but overall if you have a DS then you should probably check it out.

Just finished up with Ace Attorney: Miles Edgeworth Investigations which was, as with all Ace Attorney games, fantastic.  
Uncharted 2 online has been extremely fun and otherwise I'd recommend Tilt To Live on iPhone,  which I have been playing obsessively on the bus and Machinarium.

"Dark Void "

How's that going for ya? i quit after the first level 
 
@Venatio said: 

"The Saboteur "

NO idea why i stopped playing that like 3 months ago after progressing pretty well.. Oh yeah, cuz the missions are fucking LAME! either assassinate a person or blow up an object, what the fuck ! I also got a headache from all the nazis chasing my ass 
 
@Venatio said: 

"Prototype"

How far have you gone? I made a blog once about how the missions get incredibly frustrating around the end..

For the past week or so I've been addicted to Bad Company 2 . At the moment I only have 1 achievement left and that is Rank 22, Currently I'm rank 18 so not long to go.

I could be wrong, but Heavy Rain and Indigo Prophecy are strikingly similar arent they ?

I've been doing some MLB 10 The Show.... going to gamefly Demon's Souls tomorrow.... exciting?

I just stopped a 3-day marathon of Sonic The Hedgehog 1-3. Going to buy Sonic & Knuckles next week although I think that only Sonic 4 can beat the flawless Sonic 2. I think my Wii loves me a bit more now too.  
 
 I got tired of new games and went retro and I can quite honestly say that I haven't had this fun with a game in a long time. Keeping it fast and easy seems to be the key.

FF12, getting bored of it, like I did my first playthrough. Probably Sakura wars next when I could get my hands on it.

Going to finish Bayonetta tonight, and will be starting Saboteur this weekend.

Posted by Synthballs

Just Cause 2. That is all. I've had Borderlands sitting there like 90 percent finished but I can't take JC2 out of my 360 long enough.

Hold on, gimme a second:
 

  • Wii Sports Resort - Or I would be, if I had some AA batteries that ran on garlic. You know, to ward of the Battery Vampire +.
  • Fragile Dreams - It's like Silent Hill, only not scary!
  • Silent Hill 2 - Shit, this is awkward.
  • Cave Story - Gotta get back to that.
  • Legend of Dragoon - Same here. So close, too.
  • Persona - Really, I just want an excuse to use a bunch of random videos in my blog.
  • Mortal Kombat II - But not for long.

Most of my time for the rest of April will be spent trying to get 1000/1000 in FF13. On May 3rd I'll start playing the Halo Reach beta a lot until that ends.
