Games lately.

Such a great time to be a gamer. I just finished Assassin's Creed 2 for the Xbox, and besides a few annoyances, the game is excellent. I would go as far as to say that AC2 is the model of how to make squeals, it's that good. I dropped AC2 in the mail today so hopefully I will get the next game on my Gamefly Q which is Prototype.

Next up for me is Dawn of War II: Chaos Rising for the PC, a game that I have been looking forward to since it has been announced. I played through DoW II last week in preps for Chaos Rising, but made the mistake of trying out AC2 while waiting for Chaos Rising, which became a week long addiction.

I am still playing EVE Online if only a bit casually. The beauty of that game is that my character still progresses even while not logged in. Again, now that I am done with AC2 I now have some time for EVE.

Right now the multiplayer game of choice for me is Battlefield Bad Company 2, a fun yet frustrating fps. One thing is for sure, it is not anything like Modern Warfare 2, and that's not a bad thing. I have also been dabbling in some Bioshock 2 multiplayer as well. I really enjoy B2's online play, it's so much fun and reminds me of old Unreal Tournament. Not a surprise since the developer of that game did the multiplayer for B2. It's just too bad that the PC version uses the peer-to-peer matchmaking from the consoles, so it can be a bit hard to find matches.

Well thus wraps up my not that interesting and somewhat informative post on what I have been playing!

Looking forward to what you think of the DOW2 expansion. I loved the original DOW but 2 felt a lot thinner to me for the multi-player and comp-stomp so I've not played since I beat the campaign.

I've been spending a lot more time with my 360 lately, so I might have to try out AC2. Never tried the first, but I'm not sure if going back for the story is worth it.

I tried DoW, but never got number two. RTSes still don't do it for me

Kind of like the Mass Effect games, you will want to play the first Assassin's Creed to understand the story, and to appreciate how number two has improved over the first.

DoW II is awesome, but it's not your traditional rts. In DoW II you only control a squad of four units, it's a lot more tactical now. Plus you level up and gather loot which is great. DoW II is completely different from the first game, which I also loved!

I was afraid you'd say that. At least AC1 should be cheaper to buy nowadays.
