Lost in Shadow (Wii) - Such a great game... its ambiance reminds me of Ico (PS2)... gameplay and puzzles is a bit like the Wii version of A Boy and His Blob (not the NES version)... the swordplay and platforming reminds me of classic (NES) Castlevania's... the blend of the 3 titles makes for one awesome game!... I had a tough time tracking down a copy of the game in Tampa and Orlando... but glad I was persitent... it was well worth it...

 

Udraw Studio (Wii) - I'm having a good time with this little art program for the Wii... I was really hoping for a Mario Paint-ish (SNES) style game... and although this is quite a bit different, its still very well done (once you get used to it...)... I'm a terrible artist... but loved Mario Paint and am enjoying this too...

Let's see here...

 

I have Super Mario 64, Super Smash Bros, MarioKart 64, both Zeldas, both Pokemon Stadiums (I don't have the old Game Boy games anymore so they're kind of dead weight ), and all three Mario Parties.

I forgot that I have also been playing Rock Band 3.

 

The graphics are much better than the previous ones, but I'm not sure I like some of the other changes they've implemented.

 

 

So what is your gamer tag? We have a few TPR members who play from time to time.

Finished Arkham Asylum last night. Great game. The ending was so-so. But over all the story was very good, and it played well, with the exception of some camera issues in certain areas. Looking forward to the sequel.

 

Now it's off to either Lego Indiana Jones, or Splinter Cell Conviction......

I agree Arkham Asylum is one of the few rare licensed games that are GOOD. Sure the combat is a little getting used to, but its amazing overall.

 

Finished Assassin's Creed 1 recently. The storyline of that game is a giant WTF. The game is fun but gets repetitive later on and has a few bugs (namely when you're leaping across rooftops being chased is when the bugs get irritating), but worth a playthrough as well.

Sonic Colors (Wii) - Just picked it up as a little after Christmas gift... And what a fantastic game!!!! This is the first time since Sonic 2 on the Genesis where I'm actually enjoying a Sonic title again (never really liked 3 nor Knuckles)... and nevermind the other 3D Sonics... they weren't very good... Sonic Colors ROCKS!!!

Finally, I finished all the loyalty missions in Mass Effect 2, successfully gaining the loyalty of every single crew member, even though I'm playing a Renegade character.

 

Unfortunately, though, I had to repeat Thane's mission once, since you had to (SPOILER)do the Paragon interruption where you distract Thane's son and knock the gun out of his hand so the father and son can confront each other peacefully (END SPOILER), which I had no idea I needed to do in order to gain his loyalty.

 

Overall, though, the missions were great fun. Jacob and Miranda definitely had the weakest, just straight-up combat and then a weak conclusion (Especially Jacob. That was just boring all-around). I'm never gonna forget Jack and Samara's missions...

In regards to Donkey Kong Country Returns:

I've made it up to the 6th world... and believe me... it wasn't easy... blood, sweat and tears (no kidding, really...)... beautiful game... but it's DAMN tough!!!... I'm considering starting over, since I haven't played for many weeks... I'm in no rush though...

 

Still fiddling with Sonic Colors (on my second go through), which ROCKS!!! as well as Lost in Shadow (which ALSO rocks!)... throw Super Mario All Stars Anniversary Edition in for good measure...

 

Considering getting Mario Sports Mix...

 

Certainly getting Conduit 2 (which was delayed 'til March in the US)...

So I need to make a decision for my next gaming purchase, and would like some input from the community here:

 

I understand that they're completely different games, and really shouldn't be compared, but which should I buy: Halo Reach, or Gears of War Trilogy (containing Gears 1+2 with 2's expansion, the package will be out in a couple months, I believe)?

 

I'm just looking for a shooter that I really don't need to think about to enjoy. I don't care about story, I don't care about graphics, I don't care about deep meaning, all I want is some dumb fun online and off. So can anybody help me decide?

If you're just looking to play single player, Gears would be a good option.

 

If you want to play multiplayer online, then get Reach. Gears multiplayer is awful. Horde mode is fun if you have friends, but online matchmaking is pretty bad. Or at least it was, I haven't attempted to play it in quite some time.

Any Call of Duty game. Games are always just Gun-and-run. No tact involved.

 

If you want a game where you actually have to cooperate and use tactics to win, as mentioned above, Battlefield: Bad Company 2.

 

CoD is fun for about a week... or less, which is the case with me and CoD:MW2... popped that game in once, played... game was awful. Went back to Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and still play to this day.

 

Battlefield > CoD
