So what's everyone's game(s) of choice this weekend? I may try to finish off Incredible Hulk at some point since I only have four or five missions left. Then go back into Ninja Gaiden II.

I'm going to try to finish Too Human.  I am in the last chapter so hopefully I'll get enough time to get through it.  The story is incomprehensible, the dialogue is cringe inducing, but I love the combat and loot gathering.

In addition I'll probably play some Rock Band 2 tonight and maybe some INFamous as well.

A friend and I are heading out to see Nine Inch Nails and Jane's Addiction tomorrow night, so I'll be doing most of my gaming tonight.  I'm just about done with the first island in inFAMOUS, so I'm eager to get back into that.  My girlfriend also just called to let me know Demons Soul arrived from PlayAsia, so I will most definitely be playing that too.

I am actually gameless right now.  DQ V will be on the way next week, so I don't really want to start anything big because it will get shelved once my DQ goodness arrives.  Might just try to wrap up the last two Strong Bad episodes this weekend.

I'll be playing more of inFamous. I'm on the second island and having a blast. I also be finishing up Wolverine which I have rented. The Wolverine game has been pretty fun so far, well worth a play for anyone slightly interested.

I'm going to continue powering through iNfamOUs so I can trade it in towards Prototype, and probably a PC game or two.  Maybe we can get a good game of Killing Floor going for a change.

Headed to Houston tomorrow for the RB party.  Tonight and Sunday will probably be FarCry 2 as I do laundry.  I get to play the same stretch for the third time, as I died the first time and a power outage wiped my progress last night right before I saved my progress...

Try to finish up Devil Summoner 2, and more being the Angelic Being of Light in inFamous.  Wherever there is a sick person, I will heal them!  Whenever a reaper is down, I will restrain him!  I will do no evil.  (right up until I meet the stupid shithead on the TV, at which point I'm turning into Darth Sidious and lighting him up like a christmas tree.)

I need to finish Bionic Commando before more new games come out, and probably mix that with some Team Fortress 2 (thank god they did another fix to allow earning weapons again!) and Everquest 2.

I'm trapped in Ancaria (Sacred 2) and have been for days, with no end in sight.  As much as I hate the camera - no matter how much you adjust the top-down style to try to see the horizon, it's impossible - the game is still extremely compelling.  I'll probably continue with my first character at least through the weekend, and maybe start a few others this week.

C'mon, Britain - get your game, already! Imo, the co-op feature is not perfect, but it is very, very good.  Before you know it you've played 6, 8, or 10 hours, and if your eyelids weren't slamming shut you'd still be playing it. Yes, Virginia, there is a heaven!   nod

I've been playing a beta of Harbor Master on the iPod Touch.  Insanely addictive game.  Due for release in a week or so.  Just about the most fun I've had with the device (Better than Zenonia!  Better than Flight Control!).

Completed Bourne Consipiracy last night.  Sucky story telling but pretty decent gameplay.  Liked it.  Continuing to plod through my backlog.  Next up the last Brother In Arms game and Folklore.

I don't think so, unless they are just punishing Great Britain to get at Metallicorphan!  I believe he gets his this coming Friday...

By not much else I meant Plants Vs Zombies, Wheelman and Skate 2... I did also become the UFC light heavyweight champ and defend my title once.

Same here.  smile  I'm trying to decide whether or not I like it though, the gameplay seems awfully hectic to me.

Press the spacebar to freeze the action at any time. You can give orders while paused, then press the spacebar again to resume.

Been doing that (feel like I spend half my time in pause mode), but the micromanagement is driving me a little batty.  Feel like I constantly have to babysit every single thing my characters do, and even then, it seems like half the time they don't seem to be doing what I tell them to.  For example:  I pause and tell El Diablo to use his flame attack on some snow monsters, then zip across the map and tell MinuteMan to use his melee attack on the baddie standing right next to him.  When I unpause, El Diablo inexplicably starts flying in a different direction (without attacking), and MinuteMan simply stands there while the dude pounds on him.  Frustrating.  I wish there was at least a rudimentary AI to take care of some of those types of issues (i.e. if you're getting pounded on by an enemy in melee range, turn around and fight back).

This past weekend my wife and kids were away and my nephew visited. That meant some M rated co-op play; CoD:WaW, Fable II, Gears II and Resident Evil 5. He'd never played any of the Shin Megami Tensei series, so we tag-teamed thru some Persona 3 and I into'd him to SMT Imagine Online. Both were  big hits.
