What games are you playing? Round 4

Enjoying Modern Warfare 2 on the PC when I get the chance, multi-player that is, anyone bothered with the single player?

Heh after at LEAST 38 people have left Infinity Ward (makers of COD) through disgust that Activision FIRED the 2 Bosses there, it's JUST been announced that makes of Halo, Bungie have just signed a 10 YEAR!!! deal with Activision, so it looks like they are making games for all platforms now, not just MS... Cool

On another note, I've been playing GTA4: Episodes from Liberty City on the PS3, very nice, a huge engine update since the original PS3 was released ;-)

Me! :P, not a huge multiplayer fan in general, currently doing the campaign on veteran.

Wrapping up sub-quests on Zelda: Twilight Princess here before taking on the final boss. Determined to hunt down all 60 Poe's this time around. Best i've ever done is 59. Currently at 41. Did the cave of trials in the Gerudo desert earlier. 50 increasingly difficult fights in rapid succession. Guaranteed sweaty palm experience. :)

Just finished Twilight Princess. WHAT a truly beautiful end to such a great game. Hopefully a new Zelda along in the not too distant future. <sighs> :)

Dived into Monster Hunter Tri on wii last night. Gorgeous game but there's a lot to take in in the controls. Steep learning curve. Possibly the best opening sequence and in game engine i've yet seen on Wii. Very fluid and high def looking.  Nintendo take note, this game has raised the bar on your console graphically. Next Zelda has to look AT LEAST this good. :)

Today I went all old school and have been playing Super Mario Bros Wii. Old school in the extreme but beautifully distilled platforming action.

Standing in the shadows, hiding from the light
Reach out in the darkness, and hold on for your life
All the fear of the future, all the emptiness inside
When the moment of truth arrives, hey, you can run but you can't hide

I can't say how many hours I've lost to that game over the past year. I prefer it on iPod than desktop. Still my favourite pick-up-and-play-for-a-few-minutes-then-put-down-again games.

Red Dead on PS3.  Loving it.  I love the 'Wild West', and this is gritty and i think encapsulates the era really, really well.

The hours you can spend just riding about and taking it all in....

Awesome game - highly recommended
Snakes n Arrows.

Fooking great fella ;-)

Stunning graphics, great sound. And a nice way of doing some of the GTA things we're used to, but in a WW setting. IE Hidden Packages... You now get to pick herbs :D

Just watched a little trailer for the new Afterburner arcade game for PS3. Looks right up my alley and only £7.99 to boot! :)
