Yeah I thought the campaign was a bit boring, and the strike force missions are fucking impossibru (I was doing them with the campaign which was on veteran setting), read up on the achievements, no point doing them in anything but recruit, so I did them that way.



End credits are quite fun though. COD has just become a game about the multiplayer and the zombies/survival matches depending on if you are a Treyarch/Infinity Ward type.

Quite liking Assassins Creed 3 so far.
If I like it, It's probably awful.

Did it stop working on your or did it get boring? :s


Also, getting comfortable with Star Wars : The Old Republic again. It's good to see that it's gone free-to-play, but by god do they cripple the f2p peasants like myself. Seriously considering getting a 3 month subscription for the summer..

No I completed it :lol: There was a bunch more to do but I was only playing through it before I gave it to my brother for Christmas... As you do. It was more like 5 hours if I'm honest :D

I'm enjoying Dishonoured, and waiting for XCOM to come down in price a bit more. Also having fun on the new TF2 MVM maps. Busy busy busy...

Hitman Absolution was pretty good till about half way through then it just didn't feel like Hitman was kinda disappointed by it.

I like Dishonored, downloaded it for my PC, runs a charm, I haven't even got very far on it, I never thought I'd like a game like this either, but when I was in university, one of my course mates had it on Xbox 360 and it looked good. Waiting for Hitman: Absolution and Assassins Creed III to download. Unfortunately, Need For Speed: Most Wanted doesn't play very well.

My brother got me Resident Evil 4 for Christmas. In all honesty, I've never properly played through an RE game but I've always wanted to play RE4 for some reason. Loving it so far, but I definitely don't have the steely disposition required to play it for more than an hour or so at a time. Creepy as hell.

Now that my computer isn't lagging like a prick, and setting itself on fire whenever I try to do something, I started up some steam stuff.

And holy fuck.

Darksiders has one of the coolest fucking intro sequences ever. The gameplay is pretty God of War-y, but I'm totally okay with that. And fucking demons everywhere and shit.

I've gotten myself a few games so far on the Steam sale.. Machinarium, Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams and Hard Reset. I did also nab myself the Humble Indie Bundle 7, which gave my another five games to play. Safe to say I won't be bored again for a while.
