Well, I'll be starting off with the GT Gears of War Friday Night (All are welcome!: Add SensuousLettuce to your friend list and send me a message you want to play!

Also, as I wait for the price of Battlestations Midway to drop, I've fired up God of War on the PS2. My initial play of it (only about 15 minutes) was not favorable back when I first got it. However, this game is really really good.  I very much like the Kratos character- would he be considered Lawful Evil?  Or Chaotic Evil? Neutral Evil?

I'm also making slow progress in Hotel Dusk: Room 215. I just got to Chapter 4.  Great characters and animation, but it has been slow to develop thus far.

Finally, I may fire up Battle for Middle Earth 2. I'm on the last mission in the good campaign, but am planning to start the evil campaign...

Might be picking up FFVI Advance today.  Trying to decide if I want to give it another shot, as I started it a couple different times on the PS1 and just never stuck it out.  I'm also desperately trying to figure out what I'm doing in Alpha Centauri.  I think I like it, but the whole game is just so gorram complicated!

Will also start Armed & Dangerous (thanks for the freebie Simon!), and probably put some time into Diablo II as well.

Hopefully I'll be able to get in on the GoW and RB6 multiplayer action.

Otherwise I just started Tomb Raider and am enjoying it so far. 

On the PC I have a hankerin' to start up Space Rangers 2 again because of the thread in the PC section.  An excellent gem that will be on my hard drive for a long time to come.

Oh and I added you to my friends ATB.

I'm going to try and play some Vanguard (haven't touched it for a couple of days), hopefully a bunch of Rogue Galaxy and maybe some R6: Vegas in between catching up on my DVR recordings and Alias season 2.  Nothing else for me so hopefully I'll make a bunch of progress with them.

Rogue Galaxy. I'm in Chapter 5, about eleven hours in and having a blast. I think this game has the most refined combat system of any action RPG I've played.

Most of my playtime will probably be spent dabbling in the unnamed MMO beta and then maybe a bit more of Sly Cooper on the PS2.  I might also try the Supreme Commander demo until it is unplayable on my rig, probably for all of 5 minutes.

Vanguard will most likely consume all my game time this weekend, though I still want to fire up Rogue Galaxy and give that a try.

I'm going to be participating in tonight's Gears of War session with my "sensuous" nemesis, I hope to get in some co-op R6: Vegas action with Jancelot, and yesterday I just picked up The Godfather and was only able to play for a few minutes before I got sucked into a Gears of War practice session in preparation for tonight's massacre.  I've been working on fine-tuning the PhillyPeteRock Grenade Tagtm.   icon_twisted

I was able to explore the extortion dynamic in The Godfather before moving over to Gears of war, and let me tell you, after slamming a barber shop owner's head into a cash register as a not-so-subtle way of convincing him that protection from the Corleone family is a beneficial expense, and then convincing the racket boss in the back room that his gambling "facilities" would be better off with the Corleones instead of the Tattaglias, I don't see me tiring of this game anytime soon.  I love the source material (both the book and the films), and this game allows me to live and play right alongside The Don himself.  The story so far looks to be very respectful of the source material and ties into the original story quite well, the gameplay is hella fun, the voiceovers were done by the original actors (except for Al Pacino), and the faces of the characters match the actual real-life actors perfectly.  Holy hell does Fat Clemenza look just like Fat Clemenza from the movie.   eek  I can almost smell his homemade spaghetti sauce simmering in the kitchen.  Great stuff.

My weekends are so busy....  My wife's directing her first play and it opens tonight.  After that is the "warm-up" cast party so I'll have a late night for me.  Then work Saturday morning and the play again Sat. night and Sun afternoon.

I'll be bringing Elite Beat Agents to the show and I'll try to squeeze in a couple songs here and there while backstage or before the show.

I finally passed Jumpin' Jack Flash on 3 star last night and was so elated!  ninja2

Currently working on FFXII for PS2 and Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin on my wonderful DS Lite. I love this thing, I absolutely do. I plan to fire up Hotel Dusk: Room 251 this weekend and check it out. Saturday night My Fair Lady and I are going to a party downtown and Sunday is probably going to be devoted to completely tearing down the upstairs portion of our townhouse since we're having new carpet put in probably Monday. WHEEEEE!!!

I'm in an RTS mood this weekend.  I might dig out Warcraft 3 or Company of Heroes and get waxed online.  Also I'm going to keep playing the Supreme Commander demo and try to like it.


On the 360 I might play some Marvel Ultimate Alliance, Battlestations Midway, and College Hoops 2K7.

Like Deno, I am in a tremendous RTS mood too. I intend to play some COH online and restart the SP campaign, and get in some SC demo skirmish. I have been utterly obsessed with Battlefield 2142 the last few days and intend to play that at least an hour or two every day. Getting 80% of my time will be Final Fantasy 12, which is just awesome and I am now scratching the surface of.

Also going to the Chicago Internation Motorcycle Show, and hoping to get some WoW involved with my weekend as well, as well as juggling some hard drives in my desktop, and maybe putting together some shelves (been putting that off for a few weeks).

I am going to beat Rainbow Six Vegas and put several bullet holes in Irena's head. Good game overall, I like the style much better than previous R6 titles. I like the run and gun + strategy + stealth options with all of them having varying degrees of viability. So once I finish that off, I've got N3 on it's way from Purge in Canada and College Hoops 2k7 on its way from Calvin, and some games to put reviews in for.

Sitting on the sidelines. Final Fantasy XII, heading to the Imperial Capital, Rogue Galaxy - opened the cellophane and read the manual, upteen SRPGs - I swear I just like to own the games in stead of actually playing them, Elebits - great for 20 minute bursts, Legend of Zelda - I always take a long time to get going in Zelda games, always, and I have money burning a hole in my pocket. Wife works from 1 - 10 tonight, so I will get some gaming in, tomorrow she works too so I can sneak more in. Goal is to finish R6 and make big dents in others.

Nah, within the first 15 minutes of playing you know what must be done and to whom. It's setup from the first mission which is really a pseudo-mission.
