Twenty-Ten

Let's start this blog off the right way. Happy New Year to everybody out there. Hope you get everything you desire, and more.

All right, with that out of the way, let's talk games. On " that site that I write for", we did our Best & Worst of 2009 awards thingy. If you guys are interested, go check it out and tell me what you think. If I had to round out my top 3 games of the year, they would be MLB 09 in third, Batman: Arkham Asylum in second and Assassin's Creed II in first. So I guess that means Assassin's Creed II is my Game of the Year, eh? Deservedly so. Such a wonderful game and a huge step up from its predecessor. Don't get me wrong however, Batman and MLB 09 are both incredible games in their own right, and both are games that I never expected to like, but there can only be one. As for 2010, well the list is quite long of titles I am looking forward to. My top 3 would be Mass Effect 2, BioShock 2 and Max Payne 3. Of course, there are a bunch more, so don't go naming me every game from 2010 that I haven't mentioned.

Lately, I've been playing Borderlands. I got it right before New Year's and have been enjoying it ever since. Although the story and ambiance can't compare to Fallout 3, which is my favorite RPG of all time, it is quite good at what it does. The shooting mechanic is quite satisfying, as there are literally a bazillion types of guns to choose from, with different statistics and colors. I am currently a level 26 soldier, for those interested in knowing that fact. Also, on Monday, I should receive 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand in the mail (hooray for snail mail during the Holidays!). I decided to get that one after GameSpot named it their Most Surprisingly Good Game of 2009, and also because some of my buddies got it and said it was quite good. We'll see. I completely stopped playing Red Faction: Guerrilla's single player a while back, since I found it to be annoyingly repetitive and bland. Played a chunk of the multiplayer and found it quite fun though.

I guess that's it for now. I'll see you guys when I see you. Take care.

Happy New Year.  Not long now until I can get my hands on Mass Effect 2!  I'll just have to wrap up Dragon Age before then.

Happy New Year DBoy. 
 
Yeah, Assassin's Creed 2 has been pretty rad, but like you, I had to take a break from it. I'm getting back into it again, need to finish what I started. Have fun with 50 Cent, haven't played it myself, but it has quite the cult following.

Happy New Year Denis.  AC II I will probably play a some of during my time off work since I've enjoyed what I played thus far.  Arkham Asylum is brilliant and is one of my favourite games of this year.  Is it my favourite?  You'll find out soon enough.
 
Borderlands is just plain fun and quite addicting looting about getting cool guns and doing the various quests and co-op makes it more fun.  Hope to play some with you tonight and if not, some BOTS if you get it.

I'm surprised that MLB is on your list, but the other choices are totally understandable.  There were some fantastic games this year and next year looks like it holds a lot of promise.
