What i've been playing.

Well for someone thats given up achievements ive earned a hell of a lot of achievements in the past week, ive kind of gone overboard for some reason, perhaps its because I want to get to 60k, im not quite sure.

Godfather 2:
Loved this game! it was seriously fantastic, I must just like the whole gangster genre because I really loved the first one as well. The new strategy element (although very very simple and something I wish they had gone into more depth with) is fantastic and reminds me a lot of the old PC game Gangland which I happened to love as well. The combat is very...unpolished? it kind of feels like a late ps1 game in some respects, not least of which is the archaic cover system that simply doesnt work. Loved the game so much that I had no problem getting the full 1000/1000. Cant wait for the next one.

Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe:
Wasnt impressed by this, after playing through arcade mode once I was done with the game and continued only for the points, the fighting system is bland and its just very meh. I liked the premise of the game, the whole crossing over of universes thing but other than that I didnt find much to enjoy. I found myself really missing the little mini-games that used to be in the Mortal Kombat games, they really added some character and humour to an otherwise bland game. Got about 520/1000 with this, the rest of the achievements were insane combo and online ones which I just could not be bothered with.

AC/DC song pack:
Rented it just so I could get the points from it, I was really suprised at the format of this, its literelly just a stand alone, stripped down version of rock band with only 18 tracks in. Im not a fan of AC/DC at all but it was pretty fun, some of the guitar parts caught me off a couple of times but other than that I breezed through it, a few of the charts are pretty fun, especially Thunderstruck which features a mega-long and slower version of TTFAF's intro. The only achievement I didnt manage to get was the 100% a song on vocals, that was just beyond me. Got 215/250 out of it.

Rock Band song pack 2:
Again rented it just for the points, there were a few fun songs in there and I managed to get all the achievements without any problem, I already had some of the DLC but meh, it was alright, I played through on guitar and Dani California took me off guard at the end, christ that song is hard at first. Got 250/250 out of it.

Broken Sword:
Yay! I played this on the Wii and loved it, I originally started it when I was like 9 or something so finally getting to finish it was fantastic, I didnt really like the new hint system though, it took a lot of the challenge out of the game and managed to just make me lazy and click it rather than work out the solution to a puzzle. The new (I think?) Nico bits wernt great though that may just have been because I was looking to play what I remembered rather than any new content. Also is it just me or did they make that goat puzzle a lot easier? I remember being stuck for days on that before but here I did it in like a minute by accident. Would definitely play the second one if they bring it out.

So yeah this was all in the space of under a week, ive got a day or so until my next 3 lovefilm games come to me so ive got time to play one of my own games for a change, im thinking mass effect, never managed to get too far into that.  I need a job.

Played Broken Sword on the GBA. The first scene was really cool but I didnt beat it
