I'm playing Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions. I love it! Sure it's a beat-'em-up but it's fun. I love the Noir-verse.

What the. I don't even ...

I'm playing FEAR. You know, the game where you enter an elevator, hit the button only to find yourself falling down the elevator shaft, into a pool of blood, which you have to swim down through in order to fall down into a dry corridor, where you start moving toward the door at the far end of the hall only to find yourself inexplicably there, and open the door to find yourself in a pitch-black room surrounded by fire and under attack by weird ghost monsters. And then find yourself right back in the elevator!

Just like real life!

I picked up Command and Conquer 3: The Wrath of Kane also and I'm just having to relearn all my tricks for Nod tactics.

I'm not easily taken in by that kind of stuff Nod sells though or anything...

All hail Kane!

...*cough cough*

I wish Command and Conquer 4 would go to console. I'm not going to ever buy it on PC. Maybe if I get it free.

Command & Conquer is one of my all-time favorite games. Tiberian Sun was a bit more 'meh' in my book - just never really finished it, but maybe I should. Command & Conquer 3, while admittedly not as good as the previous games story-wise ( not including the Scrin, at least in the way they were, would've been a huge improvement ), is certainly a good game. Kane's Wrath, though, is awesome. Kane, and by extension Joseph D. Kucan, the actor who plays Kane, is just such an intense person. I can see why millions of people would follow a leader like that.

As for Command & Conquer 4, let's just ... not talk about it. The gameplay is changed. The story is laughable. The whole thing just reeks.

Yeah and it has a very invasive DRM. I liked 3 though. It added a since of the world of the C&C Universe. It's gameplay was much more refined too and the scenes got an upgrade.

Well, I've played through FEAR. Time to start the expansions. But even without those, Steam tells me I've played the game for 11 hours. That's easily twice the time it takes to beat most action games nowadays. That alone is awesome. FEAR is turning into one of my favorite games ever.

I've been playing Super Smash Bros. Brawl as of late. If anyone else plays, I'd be glad to swap Brawl friendcodes with you!

Well this is ... weird and frustrating. FEAR can be played in widescreen, but it says it's not optimized for that resolution. The expansion pack Extraction Point, however, doesn't let you pick widescreen at all.

Yeah...you do know the expansions weren't made by the same company/people, right? :P

In fact,I don't think anything in the Expansions is explicitly considered "Canon" by the original creators of F.E.A.R.

I know, and there's a fair chance I won't actually play them. Extraction Point I'll probably finish, but Perseus Mandate ... well, if it's good, but you play as a Replica Soldier unless I'm mistaken, so it's not as interesting.

Edit: I think I am mistaken. That's Reborn, for FEAR2. But whatever!

I don't really enjoy fast-paced and snarky reviews.

As for the sex thing, well, I skipped through it. But it mentioned Mass Effect and now I want to play that. Tali romance! YEAH.

It is, however, a very well developed romance and has its share of intimate moments. The bunker on Haestrom where Tali talks about how she wishes Shepard were there is one of the most memorable moments of the entire game, if you ask me.

I hope they never show Tali's face.

Anyway, I beat ME2 last night.

On a whim I bought the Harry Potter And The Order of The Phoenix video game. It's my favorite of the books. I didn't expect much from the game though, and I'm glad it was cheap. All I can say for it is that I like exploring Hogwarts and seeing the characters rendered in such a way. I don't know if I'll bother finishing.

A game based on a movie based on a book.

...What could possibly go wrong? :D

Now we just need a book based on the game to bring it full circle.
