Finished playing through the first Crysis recently, I enjoyed it enough that I bought Crysis 2 and plan on getting through it soon. I also bought Dead Space 3 yesterday, so far it's excellent. While Resident Evil has strayed from the survival horror genre, it's good to know that some still exist and do it well.

Finished playing Sleeping Dogs. Got the Platinum trophy, a great game!

Now gonna play some NHL 13. I have to finish my fantasy draft season and my simulation 25-season GM-mode with the Wings before NHL 14 comes out.

Also going to play Hitman at the same time as well. Platinum trophy is the goal there as well.

After Hitman is finished I may play some Skyrim (that's a loooong project) or start the Mass Effect trilogy.

The Last of Us comes in two months and that will be a welcome addition, definitely.

Still on Dead Space 3, taking my time and enjoying it. Been playing Dragon's Dogma on the side also.

I bought The Saboteur online for ten bucks and played a little bit of it. Reminds me of a Grand Theft Auto style game with open world that takes place during WW2. The art style reminds me of Sin City with the combination of black and white with some color highlights throughout. It makes for a very different and visually appealing game.

If GTA is your type of game and you are itching for an open world game right now it's a nice pickup for the price.

I picked up Hitman Absolution the day it came out, played it for a few weeks an got frustrated so took a break. Just picked it back up this weekend and I'm hooked again. Such a fun game, patientence is required though!

Blood Money is better.

I've never played Blood Money. I've only played Hitman 2: Silent Assassin, and now Absolution.

I recently purchased a new pc, A+rig, and found Steam was running a deal on Skyrim. I already had it for the ps3 but for the price, over 1/2 off, I decided to pick it up. The modding community for the game is incredible, it's like playing a different game.

Also picked up Torchlight2 and having a good time with that. I hope to get my hands on Boishock: Infinite soon, the trailers I've watched have been off the hook.

Torchlight is awesome, enjoy it.

I just picked up Bioshock Infinite, it's farking incredible. I'm a big fan of the Bioshock games, this one is so much different from the previous two but I still love it. There's enough Bioshockness left in it that it's not too different but unique enough to stand alone as it's own title. Very awesome, highly recommended.

Still on Skyrim, now moved over to the Dragonborn DLC. Though, I think I'm going back to the main game, to join either the Stormcloaks or the Imperials for the war. (Both times I've played through this game, I stayed neutral in the war). I finished the main campaign without choosing a side, so I had to do the "cease fire" treaty at High Hrothgar.

So, what should I choose, Stormcloaks or Imperials?

Finally finished about everything possible in Skyrim. Now I've moved on to a 10 year old Xbox game, Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge.

CS was always a fun game to play, so I figured I'd spend $10 for it and download it.

Crimson Skies was a lot of fun, there's a few old xbox classics I wouldn't mind going back to.

I recently revisited Battlefield, purchased Battlefield 3 again and redownloaded BF 1943 on the arcade.

Just finished Gunslinger, which I highly recommend and now I will start with XCom. Oh and Guns of Icarus Online is always on my list.

Gunslinger.. the Call of Juarez arcade title? Maybe I have that wrong... Xcom was really fun if you are into the turn based strategy genre.. requires multiple playthroughs until you adapt and get a better hang of things.

Beat the Last Of Us last Friday. In the gaming mood as of late decided to pick up Batman Arkham Asylum GOTY and Batman Arkham City GOTY. I'm still on the first game and I'm hooked. Can't believe I overlooked these this long. AA is phenomenal so far and from everything I've heard and read AC is even better.

Both are amazing games, but I would have to say I enjoyed AA more than AC. Not that City was bad, it just seemed a little more far-fetched than Asylum (an entire section of Gotham quarantined off as a prison "city" sounded too much like Escape from New York to me).

I'm very interested to see how Arkham Origins plays out, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't disappointed that the original voice cast isn't returning...

As for what I'm playing, my sig and avatar combo should make it pretty clear...

Red Dead was a brilliant game, I reached 100% complete in the main campaign and the Undead Nightmare expansion so if you need assistance anywhere just ask. Easily one of my all-time favorite gaming experiences.

Thus far, it is the only Rockstar game I've ever hit 100% on, both RDR and Undead Nightmare. This is probably my 5th or 6th playthrough.

RDR was the easiest to hit 100% on of the Rockstar games because you didn't have to search for unmarked "hidden packages" or whatnot. At least you could use the survivalist maps to find the flowers that you needed.

Easiest, however, does not mean easy. Killing 2 bears with only your Bowie Knife was a B(word-that-rhymes-with-Ditch) and a half. As was a cougar with dynamite, etc...

And agreed. Red Dead is easily in my top 5 all time.

Oh nice didn't realize you had played through it before, i've been considering starting from scratch all over again myself. And yeah some of the hunting challenged were ridiculous but got them finished eventually. I think Undead Nightmare was one of the best game expansions also, unlocking the 4 horses of the apocalypse was very different and memorable.

I like the Western genre in general, played through Gun that was decent at best and the first Call of Juarez game. There's a serious lack of good western game titles out there but Red Dead did it so right. I even enjoyed and still own Revolution on the first xbox.

Yeah, I love the Western genre too, it just tends to flop more often than it should.

Gun was good, but WAY too short. I also enjoyed Call of Juarez Bound in Blood, as well as Red Dead Revolver. But it just seemed that every other attempt (or at least the ones I played) just failed in some major aspect or another.

Just beat AA last night. With gaming I go through spurts of addiction and playing many, many hours to then not touching my PS3 for a few months. I'm very pleased with AA, can't believe I over looked it!

I'm not a trophy ***** by any means but I'm trying to get 100% on this game. I played the game on normal so I have to do another play through on hard, then I need to do the 40x combo hit along with one of each move in a row (forgot the name). As well as the predator and combat challenge trophies. That one is going to be tough for me to get I think!

Pretty pumped to start AC after that! As far as Origins I need to watch the trailers on it. I hope that ends up being fantastic as well!

As for what you both are chatting about ate you talking Red Dead Redemption? I have that game but haven't played it since it came out. It was fun but I can't even recall if I beat it. I think I only have maybe 20-25% trophy completion? I should go back and play that again.

I finished the Best of the Best banner on Mass Effect 3 multiplayer last week. Lots of grinding waves with different characters and weapons. The solo golds went easier than I expected once I went for them, though having all the yellow card (rare) weapons and gear maxed out helped out.

I picked up the trilogy set for Mass Effect since I jumped into the series with number 3. Thanks to Best Buy reward certificates it was only $15 and I'm going to play through the whole trilogy for the story. Any suggestions or tips are welcome.

The Last of Us if it's available for Xbox might be a pickup once the price drops. I mess with Dead Island on occasion, but ME3 MP has been dominating my gaming time until this week. Finding a group of friends that play well together is a huge plus. I actually did join a pug last week where we just clicked and the whole match was fire and biotic explosions. Several of us had incendiary ammo, and my kroguard's biotic charge detonates fire explosions primed by incendiary ammo and biotic explosions from certain powers. Two matches of that and then we switched to a tech team and had fire explosions/cryo explosions/ tech bursts galore.

If anybody wants to team up on MP feel free to message me if I'm on Xbox live. Gamer tag is The Xym. I'm off teaching for the summer, so I'm on a decent amount, but with the situation with my daughter I'm not going to be on until Wednesday.

I got my 1000G on Defiance yesterday. Now I'm working on Dragon's Dogma. After I finish that, I may play Witcher 2 again, but on the hardest setting to try and complete all the achievements in that. I've been playing Saints Row the 3rd, GoW Judgement, Cursed Crusade, I need 2 more multiplayer achievements to yet again complete AC3 and I may go back and get the last couple achievements in AC1 sometime soon. I still have to do all but 1 of the Skyrim add-on achievements. It's been on the back burner for some time now.

I know I got you on my friends list, if you ever want help with some achievements and I own the game i'll let ya know. I've been interested in Defiance, how is it?

I played Dragons Dogma for a while but got side tracked with other games as I normally do... I tend to not be much of a completionist for achievements even though my gamerscore is really high, I just play a ton of games.

With the Ultimate Game Sale going on, I bought the newest Tomb Raider for twenty bucks and i'm pretty much blown away by it. It's so incredibly good I really didn't expect to like it as much as I do. Today is the last day it's on sale and it's worth every bit of $19.99. I also picked up Crysis 3 recently and is likely the next game on my list after TR completion. Also been playing some Battlefield 3 multiplayer here and there.
