Currently Playing Update 11 24 2009

Small update, just adding one game. With all the crazy hoopla about CoD4:MW2 these days, I figured I should at least try to figure out what the big frickin deal is. In that past I have tended not to like "real combat" shooters, I like to kill aliens (Halo) and demons (Doom). I tried some WW2 games (Medal of Honor, I think) back when the genre wasn't so tired as to be narcoleptic...and was not impressed. I even tried the CoD3 demo available on Xbox Live...*yawn* But I realized that I did enjoy the "real" part of Crysis more than the "alien" part...so hey, I'm game to give CoD4 a try considering it's not a WW2 game.

So I bought a used copy of CoD4:MW off of someone here on OCN. I'm about five or six mission in so far...still not sold yet. The opening mission was highly cinematic, which was really cool. But the gameplay is just so different than anything I'm used to that's just hard to "get it". And I've got to tell you, I'm getting pretty tired of being blown up by grenades that I don't even see coming. That may be "realistic", but it's not FUN. Now I do think I'm finally climbing the learning curve for this type of game enough to enjoy it a little more, we'll see how it goes.

On a side note, I finished Halo:ODST on Hard the other day. Trying to decide whether to start another campaign on Legendary now, or let it sit for a while and play some other stuff.

Updated list:
  • Call of Duty 4 (PC)
  • Galactic Civilizations II (PC)
  • Mafia Wars (Facebook)
  • Halo 3:ODST (X360)
  • Rock Band: Metallica (X360)
  • Dead Rising (X360)
