Weekend Gaming! 04.09.11

My girlfriend is home for the weekend, but I'll still manage to fit in some gaming while she studies.  I'll keep my entry short this week though:

  • NHL '11 (360):  Still working on my Be A Pro career mode.  My Phoenix Coyotes are 14-4-1 and my pro is leading the league with 17 goals, 14 assists, and a +/- of  +23. Of course I'd rather be playing for the Bruins, but I'll stick to the team I was drafted to for now. It's sad that nearly half of my goals are scored after my Coyotes are up a goal and the opposing goalie has been pulled at the tail end of the third period. Oh well, a goal's a goal.
  • Dirt 2 (PC):  After checking out some more coverage of Dirt 3, I'm getting pretty excited for its release next month. Since I fixed my PC last weekend, I've started playing Dirt 2 again to temporarily satiate my desire for rally racing and double up on Dirt 2 achievements in the meantime.
  • Fight Night Champion (360):  I'm really enjoying the story-driven Champion Mode. The story itself is rather predictable so far, but I still respect that they're trying something new with the series. Initially I wasn't a fan of the new punch control system, but it's starting to grow on me. I still prefer the old style from Fight Night Round 3 and Round 4 though.
  • Borderlands (360):  GB user and real life friend of mine, Jimmah7 and I have started replaying Borderlands after I picked up the GOTY edition for $20.  My level 17 Hunter and his Level 17 Siren are tearing up the Arid Badlands and ready to move on to big and better areas. I'm hoping he'll be down to play on Sunday night after my girlfriend goes back to school. I can't wait for a sequel!
