Arkham Asylum proves I suck at stealth, since I keep getting spotted by gun wielding thugs.  Usually while attempting a gliding kick takedown.

Fun game though.

The 3d mode is a nice novelty, but gives me a headache.

Is this 3D with traditional red/blue glasses or the new 3D?

I'm playing the following:

Fallout: New Vegas (Level 30, nothing to do really, have really slowed down playing this one)

SmackDown vs Raw 2011 (Love it, made a bunch of stables, waiting for DLC 3 before I pick it up again so it'll still be fresh when that hits)

Madden 10 (Picked it up for $10 with a gift card, acquired the Sex Cannon to the Raiders, he tore his hamstring so I have Jeff Garcia starting, try to play a game a night)

WCW/nWo Revenge (Got my N64 hooked up and played this the other day, still love this game)

I'm playing:

Darksiders (PC) - Geez, this game is LONG. Got about 12 hours into it right now.

Call of Duty 2 GOTY Edition (Xbox 360) - Still actually good.

Dante's Inferno (PS3) - Yes, I'm sorry too.

Forgot I recently started Red Dead Redemption. I'm real early and haven't been sucked in yet though. I do see the potential in it though.

That game took time for me to get into as well, but once you do, it doesn't let go.

EA Jobhunt 2011: Unemployment Edition. I haven't played any in the series since 1999. It isn't very good but I have the feeling I'll be playing it for a while.

And Black Ops

Breach for the 360.  Still has some issues with hosts quitting, but it's a fun FPS.  Less "arcadey" than CoD.

The red/blue glasses.

Was it the part where you were in the hallway and the lights flickered and something banged loudly, but nothing happened then two steps later *BANG* RAAAAAAR!!! out pops a necro and here's you realizing that you forgot to reload?

Never happened to me.  Always reloading, this one.

Ordered Ikaruga last night.

If my 360 craps out, will they make me pay for it again?

Good purchase.  I don't know for certain, but I believe they do allow unlimited redownloads should something like that happen.

Yeah, the XBL Marketplace remembers what you've downloaded, so you can get it again should you need to transfer to a new system, but I believe that can only be done once per year.

All that being said, you can only download it so long as it's offered on the marketplace, so don't count on it being available years from now. It might be, who knows, but just keep it in mind.

Went to Gamestop looking for Street Fighter IV, but walked away with Ninja Gaiden II for ten bucks instead.

Breezed through the first chapter on the first mode, which I presume is "easy", because I'm not seeing that mad challenge everyone raves about.  A little blocking and dodging and Flying Swallow spamming makes short work of most groups (And I can do allright even without the Flying Swallow spam).  Not really a complaint, and maybe I'm spoiled on PS2's God Hand, which is ungodly hard on easy mode while still being a lot of fun.  (I'm still disappointed in Freakshow for not having played it, or possibly even heard of it)

Got to say, lopping off limbs is mad fun.  This game is bloodier then God of War.

I just finished my first franchise season with the Oak-Land Rai-ders on Madden 10.  I was going to play as the Falcons (my team), but I really wanted to play as a team with crappy QBs so I could use Grossman.  I signed him to a free agent deal with the Raiders after I saw their QBs.  Gross Rexman was out for 10 weeks with a torn hamstring, but he came back and took the Raiders to a Super Bowl victory.  I won the Super Bowl with a 15-1 record and Jeff Garcia and Rex Grossman were my QBs ~REALISM!

I play on Pro, but I'm not great at these football games so I did have competitive games.  It's not like I steamrolled everyone by 5 TDs or anything.  I had 2 or 3 games I pulled out on last second FGs. 

One of my favorite things that happened this season was when I was up by multiple scores against the Steelers.  I was going to kill the clock and took a knee.  The Steelers called a TO so I called a play action pass that went 60+ yds for a TD.  I beat them again in the conference title game as well.

Been playing a lot of Top Spin 3 since the Australian Open.  Had a created character, played Andy Murray who was in the finals this year, defeated him pretty easily though he kept running down shots, but my serve was very tough for him.

Never got the chance to God Hand it up, but it's on the List, fwiw.

And you should really be upping that difficulty level.  Play the game like it's meant to be played.

Started Ninja Gaiden Black and Bioshock.

On Ninja Gaiden:  Seems like a different game then II.  Despite being an Xbox game, the graphics actually look better because of the awesome set pieces.  The gameplay seems somewhat slower, but the enemies also block more and you feel more like you're using skill instead of hacking and slashing.

I'm loving it.

As for Bioshock, it's about what I expected:  System Shock II on steroids.
