Baillie's Gaming of the Week - 11/10/10

I know, it's 2 days late but this quest has finally pushed me into doing this. I will setting tasks for myself to play (mostly)all my games*. I have way too many to keep track of, and will probably make a list here showing the ones I've completed, starting playing and still sealed. 
 
Anyway. Recently I've been getting back into playing Splinter Cell: Conviction. That game has still got it, it still feels fresh to me and I am finally close to S-Ranking it. I just need a co-op partner who actually wants to do last stand missions with me. That's my biggest problem with this game. I don't understand why they would make a horde like mode for a game like this, it really doesn't fit into the structure of the game. There's no real way to be methodical and plan out your attacks. You just have to be quick and brutal, along with a bunch of mark and executes. Tedious is what I like to call it. 
 
Dead Rising 2 still isn't clicking with me. I really enjoyed the first, and I know it is basically the same but with a knew coating, however it just feels bland. Really bland. I've been playing with people on co-op and I'm not enjoying the characters, the story and even using weapons isn't fun unless it's been taped together. I will persevere and hopefully reach level 50. Having no incentive - unlike the original - is slightly bemusing, in my opinion. 
 
FIFA 11 has been out for nearly two weeks and I must say it's probably the most disappointing game I've played in years. The online is still broken. It's not even a server issue. When I used to get severe delay/lag, I presumed it was a server issue. However, after playing it online with a friend who was sat next to me, I realised that the game I was watching was actually a few seconds behind. It wasn't lag, per se, it was the game on the screen being behind what was actually happening. I could literally play fine watching my friends screen. I just hope this gets fixed soon. 
 
Anyway, enough blogging from me. I'm not good at it. I will be back next week for an update. I will have Medal of Honor in my possession by then and judging from reviews, completed it quickly too.  
 
*I haven't updated my library for a while, I shall get onto that.
