I just traded Dragon Age Origin in toward Lego Star Wars. I think I'm on the outer when I say that DA2 for me is a more fun game. DA1 was ok but some parts of it were SOOOOOOOOOOOOO hard I had to leave the room to calm down.

How do you get time ajm? Between work, home chores, family, I find playing any games is almost non existant. I bought a few for my PS3, actually did finish Red Dead Redemption, Heavy Rain and one or two others, but find now I haven't turned on the PS3 execpt to watch one movie in bed (as it is now in the bedroom) since Christmas.

I don't. That's why I'm only now starting #1 while others have got through #2 already.

God of War II.

"Hard" really lives up to its' name............tempted to to Easy for some of the Boss battles, but I can't (since I know i'll be stuck on Easy for the rest of the game, so slowly getting through it..)

P.S.........had to go Easy (or was it Normal) for the final Boss battle in God of War I (I know.............the shame)..

It's all Crysis 2 for me at the moment. The first FPS I've really been excited about in a long time.

Currently enjoying the GOW3 beta which is really fun. Also about halfway through Crysis2 and have Portal 2 to review next week.

In my backlog I've just got stuck into Fight Night Champion.

Started playing Portal 2, stopped after a few levels and decided to go back and complete Portal 1. Started from scratch again and I'm now at level 18 of 19 on Portal 1.

NFS Shift 2 has been pushed aside until both Portals are done, and I keep telling myself I will get around to Enslaved: Odyssey To The West...but with Dirt 3 on the horizon who knows when I'll get around to it.

Saw that Good Game gave Portal 2 the ultimate 20/20 score last night. Still waiting for my copy to arrive from o/s.

I don't think I've ever seen them mark anything low to be honest. They're very generous with their rubber chickens [*sic*].

They were certainly quite glowing in their review on nearly every level, especially in terms of game design, character development and voice acting. But then again most critics are heaping praise on this game:

I hear you here!!
I find patches where you find spare time and spend hours at a time, then go months with nothing.
I feel bad not exercising and doing other stuff, but when you are on, you are on! ha!
Its good to have some 'me' time too!

haha... Leave the room to calm down - I like it and can relate also!

Going thru a hours at a time spell atm and am engaged with The BIGS2 - Good baseball game.
Looking to get onto AFL 2011 or FN Champion next (if someone is looking to offload).

Can't wait for LA Noire next Friday (20/5). I have to play this title Day 1 so went with a JB preorder rather than purchasing o/s. The Guardian newspaper in the UK breached the review publishing embargo and gave it a perfect score which has aroused a few suspicions. Though it was probably scored 5/5 just because the game flat out rocks.

Don't you hate how game publishers have these review blackouts up til release day. Make's it a tough call on some games whether to pre-order and get a few bonuses or wait for the reviews to come out and maybe miss out on some of the pre-order goodies.

I'm with you Felix. I've made sure my better half has had enough info provided so she too is also hyped. Just makes the expense easier :lol:

All I can say personally is prepare for awesomeness. It's much slower paced than GTA or RDR with much less focus on action. I'm grabbing a copy day one as well but the short glimpse I've had of the game already utterly impressed me.

That doesn't bother me at all nonny. I'm craving for something very different to the usual fare and I'm sure this one will deliver in spades from a developer of proven pedigree.

I'm looking forward to LA Noire as well. I'm guessing the best price on day 1 may be around $79 (pre-order at Fishpond is $75) so is the extra DLC from the preorder at JB worth an extra $10-$15.

Has anyone looked at preordering at EB and pricematching on the day which would give you best price and DLC? Is that even possible?

Actually to answer the question - What am I currently playing....I'm really enjoying Bulletstorm. Now I'm not an online gamer so I had real reservations about this game (as the demo was crap TBH) but I must admit I am having a blast. The teen humour on display is a riot (How many d!ck jokes can you have in one game? Answer - there just aren't enough).
