I have recently gotten into old first-person shooters like Doom and Duke Nukem. Mostly because we have copies of them kicking around the house that were bought back when the games were considered top-of-the-line, graphics-wise. (Oh how times have changed.) There's something extremely cathartic about putting on Duke Nukem and powering through the levels after a bad day, heheh.

I don't think I really played much of either but I'm pretty sure we still have Duke Nukem... somewhere.

I've spent the last couple days running through Call of Duty Black Ops in the veteran difficulty and I have to say that much of it has included a lot of cursing and the desire to throw things. As impossible as some parts seem I've managed to get to the last two levels. Must. Have. Platinum. Trophy! [/trophy whore]

It's something to do while I wait for L.A. Noire to come in, anyway. Canada post is slow >.>

Hehe, trophy goodness indeed. I was able to make the game my second platinum.

I really liked it though at times it felt a bit repetitive... but what can I say, I'm used to that. I'm a sims player after all :P

Anybody played any new games that they enjoy?
I'm looking forward for Assassin's Creed 3 to come out. The Revolutionary War is my favorite war (I know that sounds odd that I have a favorite war) and it looks freakin' amazing!

The sea battle looked particularly good. I foresee motion sickness on my part though :/

I recently got into the God of War series and I love it. It reminds me a bit of Castlevania and Prince of Persia, which I also like :P

Seems like my place :( I've been waiting on Max Payne from the beginning. Granted, it often says it's available, as are they next 4, but it sends me something at the bottom of the list.

Are you renting the Origins collection or did you buy it?

I rented it. It was fun but too short. I finished it in like a week.

Ah k. You could buy the Saga collection. It has 1-3, plus Origins. 5 games for $40 is pretty awesome ;)

Speaking of remastered games. I really wish they'd do both Kingdom Hearts. I miss those.

Okies. The game will wait ;)

I know, right? I guess I could just move my ps2 into the bedroom and use the tube tv, but... meh? Lol.
