    I’ll look into the Bureau. I just finished The Last of Us which I didn’t enjoy. I’m back to MW3 and feeding my OCD.Report

      Didn’t enjoy the story? Didn’t enjoy the gameplay? Didn’t enjoy the ethic?Report

        @jaybird I liked the story and writing. I was a bit concerned with the opening sequence where he loses his daughter and later on with her friend. I get teary pretty easy and hurt kids isn’t something I can stomach.

        The ethic didn’t bother me. It made sense in the context or was palatable in a way that the airport scene in MW2 isn’t.

        It was the game play. I found it clunky. I love the feeling of the game being an extension of yourself. When you’re continually fighting static to move the way you want or have the screen orient the way you’d like it’s frustrating.

        On the bright side the next Gran Turismo is supposedly coming out. Though the historic release dates are kind of a joke around our house.Report

    Shadowrun Returns, which isn’t brilliant, but is worth the price.Report

      I am looking forward to the Berlin campaign, but it looks like it will not get here until 2014. Does anyone know if there are any completed player made modules worth trying yet?Report

    Still having fun with DDO. Last week was they released a premium expansion, and it was accompanied by a reworking of one of the character customization systems, so I got to redo a good chunk of my character. I should have gone back to this game much earlier.

    On the ipad, I have been playing Plants vs. Zombies 2, which is about what you would expect. So far, it looks like free to play done right. I will see what I think when I get further into it.

    Also on the ipad, I have been playing Ultima Forever. I do not know that it really captures the Ultima feel, but it is enjoyable nonetheless. Most of the dungeons are short, around 15 minutes or so, though I believe there are some long ones. It is an MMO, so you can form parties. I have only played it about an hour, but it might keep me entertained at the hotel on my trip to Houston next week.Report

    Working my way through Bit.Trip.Runner 2, which is a great way to kill a few minutes.. and then a few more minutes… OK, just a few more… It’s kind of a perfect game for me, as a fan of both rhythm games and platformers. Though my wife is concerned about the recent uptick in the incidence of profanity emanating from the family room.Report
