One night when I was bored, I decided to look through my 360 collection for a game I haven't played in a while. I chose Project Gotham Racing 4, of all things. With the (at the time) impending release of Geometry Wars 2, I wanted to play a bit of Geometry Wars: Waves. After about a half an hour of that, I decided I should actually play PGR4 while it was in my 360. I had beat the career mode a few months ago, so I decided to start going through all the Arcade events. Even after the hours upon hours I put into finishing the career mode, I still have a lot of fun playing it.
I've also been going through Call of Duty 4 on veteran, and oh man, is it some bullshit. If you're out in the open you'll be dead in a split second, because all the enemies are deadly accurate. You're probably thinking, "Well, stay behind cover, stupid!" but that doesn't work either, because the enemies will just keep respawning unless you run out of cover and move forward. Not to mention if they can't shoot you with bullets they'll just throw a grenade a hundred yards or so and have it land directly at your feet every single time. Sometimes I have three or four grenade indicators on my screen at the same time. It's fucking ridiculous. Veteran is as much a test of luck and patience as it is a test of skill. Despite how frustrating it is, I feel compelled to see it through to the end.
Now that it's a greatest hits title, my friend went out and bought Resistance: Fall of Man, so I've been playing through the campaign with him. It's a pretty good game so far. I'm not blown away by it or anything, but I guess that should be expected, considering it's a launch title and all. I played a little bit of Geometry Wars 2 multiplayer with him too. Multiplayer is pretty fun, but since the ships are various colors in multiplayer, it's really easy to lose track of where you are in the huge cluster of enemies.
Besides all that, I've been playing some more Okami. I'm currently in the Kamui section of the game, and I'm pretty sure I'm only a few hours away from the end. I'm also getting close to the end of Pokemon Ruby. I just have one more badge to get, then I have to train my Pokemon until they're ready to take on the Elite Four. After I'm done with these two games I think I might finish God of War. I started that game sometime last year and got sidetracked about halfway through it, and now that God of War III has been announced, I want to finish this and buy God of War II so I'm all caught up on the main series.
Actually, that might be a lie. I'm trying to find Skate for a decent price on eBay, but I think I might just suck it up and pay full price for it, because it's hard to find it used for a price I want to pay.
I think I've about emptied my mind by now, so I'm off to play a little Pokemon Ruby.
